A wonderfully majestic vocal triumph, Mickey Kojak puts a refreshing spin on Dido’s “White Flag.” Dido – “White Flag” (Mickey Kojak cover) A euphoric symphony of glistening synths

Mickey Kojak has just released his tripped-out new single “All That Acid.” The new single is said to be “excessive, fun and easy to remember,” and Mickey Kojak did just that. Despite the name of the song, Mickey Kojak says that he does not endorse the consumption of lysergic acid diethylamide or any other hallucinogens,

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA managing editor Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.

Goshfather has a unique ability to see things in songs others never would or could. Flip Drake into a fiery disco track? Check. Up next? Lil Pump and Kanye West‘s raunchy “I Love It.” Going into this funk-ified remix, it’s hard to know what to expect. But like he did with “Nice For What,” Goshfather’s concocted a refreshing take on the wide-shouldered track. He kicks off with a steady-rocking bassline to back Lil Pump’s vocals, hinting at what’s to come with subtle horns. At the drop, he drenches his listener in the grooviest of beats, aiding to the retro atmosphere of the track with an irresistible horn melody. It’s brilliant.

Jaguar Dreams are continuing their recent slew of releases with the next from their arsenal: “Behind Those Clothes.” After a killer debut with their cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams,” this New York trio are back with new original that oozes a smooth and sexy aura. With slick vocals and instrumentals that glide effortlessly behind them, it’s evident this newly formed group is swiftly paving a road to success. “Beauty has a way of momentarily conquering us, but stripping down to our essence is what makes us fall in love,” they said of the song’s release. “‘Behind Those Clothes’ can be sexual if you want it to be, but at its core, it’s about discovering truth through vulnerability.”

Beware: This is a catchy one. Micky Kojak’s “All That Acid” popped up on SoundCloud just days ago after premiering on Triple J and has since garnered attention from artists like San Holo, Robotaki, and Unlike Pluto. The up-and-coming Australian producer takes his listeners on a ride in this release, with infectious vocals and a funky warped synth melody leading to a beat that’s simultaneously laid-back and energizing. Though it clocks in at less than three minutes long, Kojak packs a powerful punch in “All That Acid,” ensuring it’ll be stuck in listeners’ heads for days to come.

Enschway‘s music typically skews trap, but not this time. For his latest, he’s reworked Golden Features‘ “Telescope” in drum & bass fashion. The rapid beat he’s crafted works impeccably with the track’s sultry vocals, tying the two together for an intense experience. This song, too, clocks in at less than three minutes, but Enschway wastes no time demonstrating his production versatility. This genre suits his music style and was met with enthusiasm in the comment section. “Finished this remix off a while back and thought I’d just chuck it up for everyone to enjoy instead of sitting on my hard drive doing nothing,” he said of the release.

My love of Metrik goes back many years. “Freefall” is one of my favorite songs of all time, and I have such respect for him as an artist. It’s no surprise that I fell in love with his newest production upon first listen. Metrik wrote “Dawnbreaker” for Forza Horizon 4, and it’s out on a Hospital Records compilation that also includes Fred V & Grafix, Etherwood, and more. It’s a gorgeous piece of music that builds a serene soundscape that sounds like what flying must feel like. His melodies are heavenly, and his sound design is unparalleled. For the full five-minute version, listen on Spotify.
