The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed.
Carnage teamed up with Steve Aoki and Lockdown for “Plur Genocide.” The most impressive thing about this track is that it could be a contender to beat out The Chainsmoker‘s “Selfie” as electronic music’s most annoying track.
American born artist, songwriter, vocalist, classically trained piano player and producer Mokita has teamed up again with fellow multi-talented American electro-pop superstar GOLDHOUSE on a downtempo tropical remix of Chuck Adam’s ‘Take Me As I Am’. Fresh off their recent team up of a remix of Tritonal’s ‘Call Me’, Mokita & GOLDHOUSE have struck pop gold
The Ready Set is best known for his meteoric rise in the electro-pop scene, however, the producer/vocalist has been transferring his skills to more dance-based productions. His latest is a joint effort with Nashville standout Mokita in the form of a daydream-inducing output called “Broken Parts.” The Ready Set’s glossy, youthful lyrics float atop a sublime bed of chords before the pair detonate a euphoric future trap burst of fluttering vocal chops and sharp percussion.
Mokita came out of nowhere to surprise me earlier this year with his debut track Dreamer along with the great melody and vocals from Cade on their track Monopoly (released via Armada Trice). Monopoly managed to reach over 2.5 million streams on Spotify alone in less than 4 weeks. Similarly, The Ready Set had a great year including tracks such as Good Enough along with Michael Brun and a great cover and remake of Nico & Vinz’s Am I Wrong.
Broken Parts pulls both their strengths together to create a soft, yet energetic blend of summery passion. The instrumental and vocal focus switches back and forth effortlessly as if they are one of the same.
“Broken Parts is about bonding over imperfections and finding beauty in accepting them. Mokita’s production had a really cool vibe on this that made it super fun to write too, I love how the track turned out.” – The Ready Set
