Vincent bends genres in new track with Ayelle, ‘We Could’Vincent We Could

Canadian-based producer Vincent has made a name for himself by continuously demonstrating his mastery of trap and experimentation. After a hit release with QUIX, the producer is back with new music in the form of “We Could” featuring Ayelle. The track doesn’t feature his typical trap chords, but rather blends subtle future bass notes with soothing vocals. With soothing introductory chords that lead into heavier bass, Vincent has created a unique blend of catchy and calming, giving the track capacity to enamor in both live sets and radio play. Its uplifting qualities and stellar production make it an exceptional addition to Vincent’s discography.

Vincent is unique in that he has self-released many of his remixes and originals. For this latest release, though, the producer has decided to team up with PRMD Music.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 57

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.

Listen in playlist format here.


Seven Lions is a master at building cinematic, picturesque soundscapes. When “Dreamin’” with Fiora came out in July, listeners were enraptured with the blissful beauty of the vocals layered over Seven Lions’ production. The artist just revealed a three-track set of remixes for the track, featuring a drum & bass take by Mazare, a trance remix by Sunny Lax, and melodic dubstep version by Last Heroes. While each one brings something refreshing to the table, Mazare’s drum & bass rendition is particularly entrancing. It’s subtle but strong — my favorite kind of music.


QUIX continues his consistent release schedule with a future bass-meets-trap power piece with Jaden Michaels. The contrast in this track is  jarring — but in a good way. While Michaels’ vocals can be tender at times, she amps up the power in sync with QUIX, who builds into a series of gut-punching drops over the course of the song. This was intentional. “I especially wanted this track to be remembered  for having a powerful first drop and a hard second drop,” he notes in the track’s description.


Hunter Siegel has been churning out a series of genre-spanning tracks this year, ranging in classification from hip-hop to house to electro. His latest, though, dives deep into the bass house realm. He teams up with Seelo for a searing bass-backed heater called “12 Gauge” on Zeds Dead‘s Deadbeats imprint. With feisty vocals and an overpowering dosage of bass, these two have crafted a short but engaging piece of work, encouraging a late-night dance floor fiend to “pump ya body like 12 gauge shotty.”

Talk about a talented trio of artists. Bearson links up with Lemaitre and josh pan for this stunning original, “It’s Not This.” Though seemingly simple, this laid-back track is backed by crisp production, a mellow beat, and a moving melody. Though summer ends officially tomorrow, songs like “It’s Not This” show the timeless quality of sun-soaked rhythms and vocals.


Dutch downtempo producer Allay just released an ethereal collection of tracks, Journey Of The Velvet Adorned Nomad. As mystical-sounding as the LP title, Allay delivers “Adrift In the Borderless Sea” with Rod V. This six-minute venture is ushered in by a saintly set of synths that crescendo into a haunting melody. Its enigmatic qualities draw the listener in immediately, leading them into a song that’s rich in light percussion and lush piano themes.

QUIX teams up with Vincent for hard-hitting ‘Hero’

QUIX teams up with Vincent for hard-hitting ‘Hero’QUI VINCENT E1534775111716

New Zealand native QUIX has had a steady rise, thanks to hard-hitting releases on the likes of Mad Decent and Dim Mak. The producer has released another track on Dim Mak, and this time he has linked up with Vincent and vocalist David Shane to collaborate on the song.

“Hero” is not a track for those looking for some airy chords and a melodic drop. Shane’s vocals are radio-worthy with polarizing soprano notes that lure the listener in. While the song is seemingly smooth at the get-go, it falls into a commanding bass drop. Knife-like chords are layered over the bass to kick up the energy, making the track the perfect one for bass lovers to get their night going.

QUIX delivers heartfelt tribute to Mr. Carmack by flipping ‘Rogue’

QUIX delivers heartfelt tribute to Mr. Carmack by flipping ‘Rogue’Qui Mr Carmack

QUIX has delivered a beautiful tribute to Mr. Carmack by reworking “Rogue” off the Hawaiian’s Bang Vol. 3 project. On the heels of his “Look Back” remix for Diplo and DRAM, the New Zealand bass producer creates a celestial, orchestral build with a synthscape, future bass hook, punching snares, and vinyl texture.

QUIX wholeheartedly admitted Mr. Carmack is his inspiration, playing a major role in his perspective about music production. The original “Rogue” was the first track he ever heard of Carmack’s, and after that, down the rabbit hole he went into the prolific beatmaker’s seemingly endless original library.

Noting this very special connection, the producer currently on his QUIX summer tour took the time to praise his inspiration and draw attention to the care and detail put forward by his tribute.

“Mr. Carmack is actually my absolute inspiration and he’s played a big part in my music perspective over the years,” he says in the track description. “I just didn’t want to make a generic future bass flip of this track but I wanted to make something I really felt connected to and something that made me feel special for the intro/build and into the drop.”

Amsterdam Dance Event

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.

Daktyl enlists MOONZz and lets his creativity run wild on “Weather.”

The Him keeps it simple. The Spinnin’ Records release, “Broken Love” delights with its simple loop and chord progression.

For the kids: Jonas Blue taps the former Vine stars, Jack & Jack, for the bright and bouncy “Rise.”

Said The Sky paints cinematic soundscapes with the Matthew Koma-featured “Over Getting Over You.”

Moodymann dives deep into Detroit funk with his bass-heavy Nightmares On Wax rework.

Just A Gent traverses the interplanetary realm at light speed with Thandi Phoenix on the rave-inspired floor filler, “Space Odyssey.”

Nitro Fun gets personal on “Time Goes By,” which he says was inspired by some personal realizations about time, love, and the universe.

Ashley Wallbridge releases a trance track fit for the Greek mythology pantheon it references.

QUIX switches it into high gear with Matroda as the two break down the barriers of bass with the burgeoning “LAMBO.”

Not for the faint-hearted: The quickly ascending Duckworthsound, who’s already got releases on Klash, Insomniac, and Tchami’s Confession label, drops off the secret weapon of the summer.

Tourist draws early-ODESZA comparisons with absolutely ethereal Rostam rework.

Space Laces is throwing massive elbows in sinister, cinematic track “Kaiju.”

MUST DIE! marries future bass and dubstep, carrying SLANDER and SAYMYNAME‘s heavy-hitter to unforeseen heights.

Ookay switches lanes, and releases his first rapping foray. There’s a hot summer of hip-hop on the horizon, and if “Desperado” is any indication of where Ookay is headed, he seems sure to corral some excellence.

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.


Chopped vocal samples and hip hop-inflected rhythmic additions make for an eccentric sound on Hanz‘s “Clutched.”

Progressive mastery is alive and well on “Keep My Light On,” a single that sees DubVision and Raiden team up for a release on Martin Garrix‘s imprint, STMPD Records.

Headhunterz makes his return to hardstyle production via a massive new LP, The Return of Headhunterz.  

Anjunabeats entity, Jason Ross puts forth his first single of 2018, “Through It All,” an uplifting number that harmoniously balances Fiora‘s soaring vocal with the song’s ascending synths.

Black Tiger Sex Machine make a statement on New Worlds, an album that sees the Canadian trio wield trap, bass, and electro production elements.

Dance music’s saccharine sweetheart Marshmello links up with Logic for “Everyday,” a single that epitomizes the carefree vibe characteristic of Friday.

Gareth Emery and Ashley Wallbridge jointly take on Signum and Scott Mac‘s “Coming on Strong.”

Paris Blohm and Myah Marie prove to be a collaborative dream on “Body High.”

Element constructs the quintessential filthy drop on his hard-hitting new release, “Needles.”

A soothing guitar melody complements Nevve‘s fluid vocal contribution on Boombox Cartel‘s latest, “Whisper.”

Ookay channels the bouncy synth work that has come to be characteristic of a Marshmello production on his whimsical new offering, “Loved or Lost.”

QUIX and JVMIE’s “I’ll Give You The World” is an expert example of lush future bass production.

Reminiscent of Foster the People and Portugal. The Man, the vocals in Lemaitre‘s “Machine” create an indie-infused groove.

Tisoki takes on Oliverse‘s “Leave Them Behind,” flipping the track into a smooth-gliding dubstep rendition.

KDrew and KVNNIBVL bring the weekend vibes with a smattering of falsetto-like vocals and a lighthearted, bobbing beat in “Body of Gold.”
