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.


A groovy introduction transforms Kungs and Stargates’ newest release, “Be Right Here,” and added electronic elements give the catchy release a new twist thanks to remixer Wax Motif.

Swedish trio BROHUG is out with a release for Spinnin’ Records, “The Hunt.” With its intense energy and kicking chords, this new track’s eerie atmosphere is sure to thrill and excite.

Sofi Tukker have followed up their 2017 Portuguese Treehouse track “Energia” with a “Parte 2,” featuring Pabllo Vittar. “Energia- Parte 2” is an infectious track — also in Portuguese, like its predecessor — that can only be described as dance-inducing.

Roger Sanchez and Park & Sons transport listeners into the disco era with groovy new track featuring commanding vocals from Julie McKnight titled “This Feeling.”

Commercial house meets experimental soundscaping in this genre-bending release by Friend Within titled “The Truth.” Friend Within blends a groovy bassline and bright horns with catchy vocals in his new Toolroom release.

Instead of adding a hard drop and intense synth layers as many remixers do with radio-crossover releases, AmPm has lowered the BPM of Nicky Romero‘s collaboration with Taio Cruz, and added melodic moments to give the release a calming effect.

Klingande takes listeners on an indie-electronic journey with Broken Back. With its silky-smooth vocals and laid-back beat, “Wonders” proves summer never has to end.

Sultan + Shepard never cease to surprise with their experimentation across genres and sound design. Their take on Fatboy Slim‘s “Gangster Trippin” will keep a club going until the early hours of the morning, thanks to its high-energy house chords layered over the original 1998 vocals.

The Him have skewed pop with their latest, “Nothing On Us.” It opens with catchy harmonized vocals that lead into bright piano melodies and a cheery house drop.

VALENTINE and West1ne team up for “Backpack,” which effortlessly fuses calming energy with a sizable dose of bass.

While not the usual suspect for electronic music lovers, MOD SUN has infused polarizing future bass chords into the drop of new release, “Burning Up.”

Steve Aoki and Nicky Romero swap remixes with each other on ‘Lie To Me’ and ‘Me On You’

Two mainstays in the pop-electronic crossover world, Nicky Romero and Steve Aoki have decided to swap remixes of two recent hit tracks from each of their respective catalogs. The producers both recently released radio-ready collaborations in Aoki’s “Lie To Me” featuring Ina Wroldsen and Romero’s “Me On You” featuring Taio Cruz. The Protocol and Dim Mak label heads each released not only one, but two remixes of the other’s track, completing an extensive swap resulting in four new remixes.

Nicky Romero reigns in “Lie To Me,” and carries it back to electronic music territory with his two takes on the track. Romero injects a gripping instrumental selection to his first take on Aoki’s groundwork. He adds a euphoric drop that is primed for live play, however he ups the ante considerably on an additional festival edit of the track. In the “Lie To Me” festival edit, electro synths are layered over a heavy, percussive framework.

Aoki’s spin on Romero similarly adds some club appeal to the largely pop-leaning canvas, but the pop elements still shine through the added house stylings. Aoki leaves the vocals untouched, and much of the song’s framework the same, though he does manage to lay his distinct method over the tune. Aoki then released a ‘Double Time Fun Time’ remix of the track, which kicks up the tempo a notch and adds some intriguing effects to Taio Cruz’s vocals.

Commercial house connoisseur Nicky Romero has teamed up with Pop star Taio Cruz for new crossover single, “Me On You.” Cruz’s vocals are as silky as ever, immediately luring the listener in with precise falsetto. Meanwhile, Romero works on the background, creating a complementary soundscape to Cruz’ vocals that layers electric guitar with upbeat electronic chords. The two have created a slice of energized pop euphoria — one that will see fans across the globe blasting it in their cars or soaking it up in the club.

“Me On You” serves as a continuation of Romero’s experimentation with more vocal driven and radio friendly releases, and it is out on Romero’s own Protocol Recordings. His last radio-friendly collaboration with ROZES, “Where Would We Be,” adopted a similar aesthetic, with a palatable, yet subdued future bass canvas serving as a nice launch pad for ROZES’ verses.
