ShockOne recently debuted his sophomore LP, A Dark Machine, and its title track is—in a word—thrilling. Featuring the entrancing vocals of Reija Lee, this drum ‘n’ bass tune is expertly crafted and has a unique quality to it that’s both dark and enticing.

Last Island has been on a roll this year. After his May Sustain EP, the Scottish producer has continued to churn out quality works, including his latest, a funky rework of Xan Langston’s “Don’t Think Just Feel.” In his interpretation, the vocals to glide over an effortlessly groovy beat in such a fun way.

Tom Budin‘s originals are consistently smooth and sleek, and whether he’s creating an original piece of work or remixing another artist, fans can always expect top-of-the-line production.

Murtagh‘s new EP is comprised of just two songs, but in this pair, listeners will find 14 minutes of sheer bliss. This progressive Macarize release sees the producer tackle two times of day, 9 and 10 a.m., with vast differences in tone and ambiance. “9AM” is a gorgeously dreamy number, painting a picture of a perfect morning.

G-house guru BIJOU is back with another sultry heater, “Young & Reckless,” featuring Way. The new Dim Mak record continues the Arizona native’s tour de force through the burgeoning world of g-house. It’s stamped with a relentless bassline and and fierce vocals from Way. “The vocal with Way came from a long-standing relationship I’ve had with his manager that started out with me buying shoes from him at Finish Line,” BIJOU says of the track. “Fast forward to today and we have worked on numerous tracks together with this one being hands down our best.”


This week’s drum & bass find got me addicted so quickly. Foreign Concept’s rework of SKS’ “Thousand Lives” has a gorgeous air of mystery about it, and the UK artist does a stellar job of amping up the intensity in a way that’s both a little dark and euphoric. While the full track stands at more than five minutes, this three-minute preview is available as a part of Vandal LTD’s Modern Soul 4 LP.


Texan producer Prismo has morphed Satellite Mode’s subtle pop track, “Gave It All,” into something much more forceful. He toys with singer Jessica Carvo’s vocals, weaving them in and out of an intense pattern of bass he’s crafted. Prismo’s ability to juxtapose this powerful style of bass music with Satellite Mode’s delicate form of indie-pop further demonstrates his strong proficiency in electronic music in all forms.


Tom Budin continues his consistent release schedule with a version of Noy’s “Kamikaze.” This gnarly bass house rework hits hard from the get-go, shocking the listener head on at the minute mark with a speaker-shattering bass. The original, too, featured an astoundingly deep bass, but Budin’s morphed the track into a more dance floor-accessible rendition. New Haven’s verses maintain the fiery intensity of the original as Budin works his magic on the beat.


Matroda‘s teamed up with RICCI on his latest original, a feisty house offering on Dim Mak called “Caliente (Na Na Na).” The collaboration offers a clean combination of house and trap and shows both artists in their finest form: crafting the most hard-hitting bass house they can.

Sydney producer JVLY teams up with the sultry SARAI to create a groovy atmospheric tune full of pulsing synths and clean high hats.

The production trio known as Brohug take the original “Too Good To Be True” and turn it into a vibrant house heater that entices dancing from beginning to end.

Blasterjaxx and Bassjackers perfectly execute a dynamic big room track, with a heavy kick and mesmerizing lead synth. Festival-goers will stand no chance.

If future house is on the agenda for the weekend, then Jay Hardway and Mesto are claiming their spot with a track that bounces with stuttering synths and a catchy repeating vocal, leaving some of us not wanting to be saved.

Building anticipation for their new album on June 22, the Yellow Claw duo release yet another silky tune featuring Rochelle, full of brassy horns and a fat snare.

Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa sound like a dream duo, until Valentino Khan comes along and puts his spin on “One Kiss,” turning it into a classic house beat riddled with alluring piano.

Elephante taps on the powerfully elegant Nevve to bring “Otherside” to life, that speaks about trying to remember a dream you had and the pursuit of getting back to it.

SLANDER create their own emotional rendition of Above & Beyond‘s “ALWAYS,” that dramatically builds from minimal elements to an all encompassing drop.

Melbourne duo Two Can deliver a melodic beauty “Got Habits” in the form of one knocky wood block, a hypnotizing vocal, and strategic synths.

Delicate guitar riffs ring, as deep bass slowly take over on Tom Budin and Kopa’s splendid new track “Things Change.”

Australian multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Mickey Kojak, delivers a refreshingly unique tune full of retro vibes from the arpeggiating pluck to the funky bassline.

The mysterious In.Drip. project feels something like driving in the rain. With his crispy yet mellow beats, laden with his effortlessly gentle voice that delivers verse after verse, he makes any drive a pleasant one.

ZAXX pulls on the heartstrings in “Together” with playful xylophones and a huge synth drop, that leaves the listener in a world of their own.

Newcomer OTHER creates a catchy tune from his soulful voice reminiscent of Blackbear and Mike Posner, to the clean guitar and exciting electronic drop.
