Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 39

This post was originally published on this site

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA music editor and staff writer 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.


Just a month after the release of “Satisfied” on his Science EP, Robotaki has tapped the talents of Machinedrum for a dynamic remix. “When my team and I were thinking of artists to hit up for remixes, we wanted to have a collection of remixes that would truly change the way the original tracks felt and sounded,” Robotaki says of the remix. “Travis’ creative, eclectic and hard-hitting take on ‘Satisfied’ is everything I could’ve hoped for.”


It makes my heart happy that people are still remixing Oliver Heldens and Becky Hill‘s beloved “Gecko (Overdrive).” It’s been nearly five years since its release, and it remains one of my favorites. The song been reworked into a drum & bass masterpiece (thank you, Matrix & Futurebound), spun into a progressive gem (thank you, Lost Kings), and now has been funk-ified into nu disco by Flamingos. With a laid-back, synth-filled vibe, Flamingos revamp this classic with a retro feel.


With each new Rocket League collaborative album, Monstercat continues to impress. Volume three features the latest from Bad Computer: a tantalizing house track with vocals from Skyelle. “Silhouette” marks the producer’s third release with the Canadian label. With captivating instrumentals and beautifully emotive vocals from Skyelle, this one is an alluring addition to Bad Computer’s arsenal of well-crafted tunes.


Bass music plunges to the depths of hell in WAVEDASH and QUEST‘s new track, “Devil Music.” Sprinkled with eerie vocals from fknsyd, this creepy collaboration is crammed with aggressive bass and compelling sound design.  The in-your-face atmosphere of “Devil Music” is invigorating and menacing, making it a breath of fresh air in the saturated bass music market.


There are few things I love more than a drum & bass song that’s equal parts passion-packed and energetic. Flite and Boxplot’s latest, “Sunroad,” is part of Liquicity‘s Galaxy of Dreams 3 compilation, which came out at the end of April. It’s a clear standout on the LP, bursting with life and gorgeous melodies.

Featuring NERVO, The Knocks, and Alisa Ueno, Sofi Tukker produced the hit single, “Best Friend” last year, which features melodic instrumentation of saxophone, bass guitar, and intriguing percussion. Oliver Heldens has put his own spin on the slow-burning track, taking the piece to new, exhilarating heights. With a revved-up tempo, harmonic builds of colorful notes, and the bruising, distinct Heldens signature sound, “Best Friend” receives a glamorous deep house makeover from the Dutch producer.

His remix of “Best Friend” marks his second production of the new year, as Heldens’ previous collaboration with Dada Life, “Live Vibrations,” was dropped earlier in January. Heldens has been grinding out new music over the past several months, and with a ton of rumored unreleased music on the horizon, we are eagerly waiting for what he has in store for this year.
