This week’s Launchpad is all about that bass-heavy summer party music. Whether or not you have “official” time off, we hope this list of tunes will induce the euphoric vibes of summer break.

DA Launchpad Selects:

“Slo Mo” by bordrs. earns our respect for the combination of smooth, almost haunting vocals, with a build that definitely matches the intensity of the chainsaw-heavy levels of the drop.
Rounding out the list, Swedish producer Arc North deftly recruits the punk pop vocals of Dani Rosenoer for a fresh, fast take on the future bass genre with “Onward (Pt. II)”.

Today’s episode of Launchpad delivers an eclectic mix of pop-laden electronic music to facilitate the ever-taxing transition from the weekend back into reality. Ranging from calmative to blissfully energizing, this melodic melange aims to alleviate any stresses regarding the week to come.

Highlights:

Stop the Fox, a new project based out of Los Angeles, make their impressive electro pop debut with the addicting “Something to Hold.” The track begins with the hypnotizing vocals of Cazz Brindis, then introduces uplifting piano melodies, a warm bass line, and bright synth notes into the mix. “Something to Hold” truly excels as it bridges the gap between modern electro-pop production and a soulful vocal narrative.

Robotaki’s first original track, “Ghostboy,” has garnered significant traction over the past six months. The producer has celebrated the song’s success by releasing an updated version of the song, accompanied by rapper C. Young. “Ghostboy (Deluxe)” is the perfect balance of dazzling synths, sultry vocals, and energetic drum patterns.

“Stuck” is a small taste from Grumby’s forthcoming EP, and the song serves as the not-so-subtle reminder that exceptional music does not need to be confined to one genre or category. “Struck” breaks boundaries as it takes listeners on a journey through comforting arpeggios, explosive synth patterns, and erratic tempo changes.

Our latest iteration of Launchpad showcases some of the hottest trap and bass sounds being played right now. Today’s playlist features producers big and small, but all share a similar vision of what makes an exceptionally heavy bass track.

Highlights:

Play Me Records are known for their massive releases, spanning across a variety of bass-heavy genres. The imprint’s latest comes from Ahee, a rising producer based out of LA-based. “Fire” is an impressive addition to the artist’s portfolio with its unapologetic broken beat, punctuated snares, and transposed vocal samples.

The Weeknd and Daft Punk’s “Starboy” is undeniably one of the biggest records of the past year. Freyah Martell is among the many artists to tackle a remix of the chart-topping collaboration, brushing up the household favorite with an epic makeover. Keeping the original synths of the major hit intact, Freyah Martell’s remix is a tasteful fusion of the core essence of “Starboy” with very pleasing synth melodies and vocals from Freyah herself.

Rather than give their spin on a contemporary hit, underground talents Parks N’ Wreck have set their sights toward the past. The duo offers a trap rendition Nancy Sinatra’s”Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” is no exception. Originally released in 1966, the track received a resurgence when it was featured in Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill. Parks N’ Wreck strategically channel Tarantino’s intensity by using the original lyrics and an array of clever gun-reloading samples to build ferocious tension throughout the remix.

There are few better ways to celebrate the weekend than throwing on a catchy track with an exciting chorus and upbeat tempo. For that reason, this Saturday installment of Launchpad features some of the best pop and vocal house tracks that are out right now.

Highlights:

Released via Armada Deep last week, Boehm’s “Let’s Give It A Shot” is an upbeat tropical house original comprised of Brandyn Burnette’s warm vocals, very addictive guitar riffs, and a fast-paced kick drum. The proliferation and success of vocal-infused tropical house is not a foreign concept to the current dance music scene, but “Let’s Give It A Shot” stands taller than the rest and will get you counting down the days until summer.

Lauv had a very prolific 2016; the LA-based artist’s “Breathe” has accumulated over one million plays on Spotify and he made his festival debut at Firefly Music Festival. “Breathe” is a beautiful pop song packed with incredibly passionate vocals and very soft guitar chords.

Zagata’s “Starlight” is an 80’s synthwave number that is one of the Montreal-based singer’s best pieces yet. The track kicks off with a brief and playful piano melody but quickly transitions into explosive synth patterns, reverb-laden drum hits, and a emotional vocal hook. “Starlight” truly excels as it maintains a perfect level of nostalgia and equally a modern feel and vibe.

Today the Launchpad turns its attention to the deep, brooding sounds of the underground. This fourteenth edition explores a melange of techno, deep house, industrial, and progressive techno music.

Highlights:

Released via Into The Wild Records a few days ago, Mahalo’s sinister remix of Zhu’s “In The Morning” might be the LA-based producer’s best remix yet. The track begins with the familiar vocals and piano chords of the original, but listeners swiftly plunge deep into the foreboding realms of intense bass growls and rhythmic percussion. The remix’s elements talk beautifully to one another creating a very cerebral yet danceable track.

SubSoul record label has a discerning taste for house music. Among the imprint’s successes is UK duo Kideko & Apres’ recent single, “Get The Funk.” Released last month, “Get The Funk” offers listeners a taste of quintessential house vocal loops, LFO-laden bass lines, and energetic cowbell sequences.

Rising Irish producer Mark Greene should be on every techno aficionado’s radar in 2017. Greene’s latest record, “Rattle,” is a menacing piece that evokes vidid warehouse sensibilities. Impressively, Carl Cox has given the track a nod by including it in his expertly-curated mixing arsenal since last August and throughout his South American tour.

For this week’s final edition of Launchpad, we are turning the volume up with some of the hottest and most exciting trap and dubstep tracks out right now. These 13 tracks have been curated with the intent of closing the weekend on a high note.

Highlights:

“Missing You (feat. Sophie Meiers),” produced by prolific bass music duo Holly & Valentine, is as vibrant as it is formidable. The track starts off with a very enchanting atmospheric intro, but quickly pivots into relentless dubstep. Both drops are very different from one another, giving the track excellent depth.

It’s no debate that Calvin Harris had a successful end of 2016 with his hit single, “My Way”, released back in September. Soon after the rising Miami-based artist, Emkay, showed the world what his upbeat interpretation looked like. Emkay has been spinning in Miami clubs since the age of 17 and his “My Way” remix is certainly a testament to this successful track record. Comprised of an addictive kick pattern and methodical pan flute melodies, this remix is a reminder of what thoughtful reinvention looks like.

Jaiko’s “Lethe (Ft. Jeff Kush)”, is a bass-heavy trap record that stands out for its dynamic track arrangement. Things kick off with a catchy hip hop vocal, then transition into unforgiving reverb-laden bass synths. “Lethe” later drops into double-time tempo giving listeners a huge burst of energy and an element of surprise.

For this week’s first installment of Launchpad, we’ve put together a list of some of the hottest future bass and indie electro tracks out right now. What better way to kickstart 2017 and get over the post-holiday blues?

Highlights:

First on our list is the epic mashup track “Lorde Flumesworth” by the popular electronic producer, Pluto. The track is a thoughtful mix between Lorde’s “Ribs”, Flume’s “Take A Chance”, as well as some Ryan Hemsworth.

Next up we have “Tune In Tune Out” by Dutch outfit, CUT_. “Tune In Tune Out” is the perfect combination of dark and light sensibilities, melding poppy vocals with deep synth and bass sequences. CUT_ explained in a recent interview, “we want to belong to both worlds; the dark alternative electronics that excite us, as well as forward thinking pop that sticks our heads… we’re always trying to combine our love for the two.”

Continuing our progression is an addictive future bass track, “About You”, released last month by Copenhagen-based group, AV AV AV. This act has been making huge waves as of late, getting recognized by some of the industry’s biggest names such as Fatboy Slim and Diplo, who have categorized AV AV AV as “the sound of the future” and “future gospel,” respectively.

Our final highlight from today’s list is BlapDeli’s “Big Room (feat. SWRV).” A single from the act’s latest EP, LUSH, “Big Room” starts with a methodical layering of transposed and high-pitched vocals before quickly transitioning into a very unique future bass synth drop. The track proves its depth as it slightly changes its mood for the second half of the track, exploring a soundscape which is simultaneously tribal and dreamy.

It’s Monday, and today’s installment of Launchpad brings things down to a very soothing level. We’ve compiled an eclectic mix of songs in the vein of Odesza, Tove Lo, and everything in between.

Hightlights:

We kick things off with Portland-based electronic duo Echos. The duo has had a prolific year and their emotional track “Take” is a testament to their success. The song grabs its listeners in the most intimate of ways, showing, via Echo’s lyrics, just what life’s difficulties might feel like.

Further down the list is “White Light,” a collaboration between Denver-based group Monarrk and Luna Blake. The future bass track is an inspiring piece that contains beautiful vocals, epic synth melodies, and enough energy to get one’s mood lifted.

Next up is a groovy midtempo track from rising artist Subaqueous. Released back in October, “Lotus Weaver” transports listeners into a psychedelic landscape filled with varied instrumentals and moments of deep self-reflection.

Our final highlight is London-based artist Tara Carosielli. The pop star’s debut track, “Leave You Lonely,” has made significant waves in the electronic world, recently hitting over 400k plays on Spotify and 62k on Soundcloud respectively. From its sexy chorus, to its gentle and swaying production, “Leave You Lonely” is a powerful example of how to make a successful musical debut.
