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.
At 20 years of age, Finnish newcomer Alinsky has created a prominent sound that carried over from his harder dance beat days on SoundCloud to more emotional pop-friendly productions. “Traces,” featuring IOLITE, is proof of this evolution.
VALENTINE & Rob Araujo team up on a glitchy, funk-infused ballad, “Embrace,” featuring rap/hip-hop versing from patches. The result is a lighthearted track that is quirky and wildly unique.
Lowly Palace is a known place for captivating chill/melodic tracks that lure listeners into gripping and emotional compositions. Newest from the collective comes an effortlessly beautiful track, “I’m Sorry I’m Gone,” by Midoca & badXchannels.
MYRNE has taken on Diplo, MØ & GoldLink’s “Get It Right.” It was only a matter of time before the Mad Decent-supported producer took on something of Diplo’s — and the result is a completely revamped track with energizing twists and turns.
Long-time crowd favorite Culture Code is finally back, and the pair has just released their first track working together again as a duo, titled “Crazy Love.” The song is a bouncy summer single with a happy-go-lucky appeal.
Unlike Pluto is one producer whose unique indie productions turn heads upon every new release. The Atlanta-bred, LA-based producer has been releasing mix-“packs” of singles that have been making his fans scratch their heads. Newest in that line of releases is his third track “pack” release in less than a month, consisting of “JOLT” and “WHY.”
Andrew Rayel has teamed with Corti Organ and Max Cameron to release an epically euphoric new single, dubbed “New Dawn.” The progressive track is sure to get big room crowds soaring to their highest of heights.
New Orleans-based experimental bass duo sfam has been gaining notoriety with their quirky sound sampling and left-field composition directionality. The producers have been steadily releasing a plethora of tunes, with the newest arriving July 6, “fresh produce,” along with fellow rising LA producer UNTITLD.
Hot off the decks from Tchami’s CONFESSION label comes a 2-track project from Bellecour’s minimal/tech house vault. Check out the duo’s new Propeller EP.
Just a few months off a statement making EP on WAKAAN, trap producer Minnesota releases a heavy new composition on Outer Realms. The track, dubbed “Final Frontier,” was a previous ID from many of his sets over 2018. Brace yourselves, this one needs subs to make out those lows.
DA favorite William Black has released another emotional upbeat ballad, “Hallucinate,” featuring the beautiful vocals of Nevve.
Dzeko has branched away from his progressive house duo to release “Try Not To Love You” with Aspyer. The track features the same energetic progressive builds as a typical Dzeko & Torres track with some new surprises.
British duo CamelPhat are up to their usual psychedelic tech-house games with a new project, dubbed The Solution, featuring two tracks that will each take listeners on a journey in their own right.
JETFIRE and Karmatek team up for a Eastern-driven commerical house single, “Living on the Edge.”
