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.
