Each week, we pick the newest electronic music tracks and music videos to have on your radar. Here are our favorites this week:
Peking Duk and Jack River’s new collaboration is a flirty throwback to the early noughties. Inspired by popular ’90s pop songs, “Sugar” finds River daydreaming of a romance filled with trips to the candy store, long drives and hanging out under the moonlight.
On their latest single “Lift You Up,” Zeds Dead trade their signature dubstep sound for drum ’n’ bass with a little help from British EDM duo Delta Heavy. The track is irresistible from the get-go, kicking off with dramatic, chiming synths that’ll have you charged up and ready to work the dancefloor.
Apparat (aka Sascha Ring) has teased his upcoming solo album, LP5, with a new single, “Dawan.” It’s a gorgeous soundscape that layers orchestral elements, guitar, drums and more. LP5, the German electronic musician’s first solo offering in six years, will arrive in March on Mute Records.
Bonobo has released a brand-new song, “Ibrik,” as part of Fabric Records’ latest mix series, Fabric Presents. The six-minute-long track is an intoxicating blend of trip-hop, featuring a bouncy synth line and light percussion. The LA-based DJ/producer will helm the series’ inaugural mix, which is due out next month.
Almost a year after the release of his debut album, Not All the Beautiful Things, What So Not has returned with another original offering. For “We Can Be Friends,” the Australian DJ teams up with rising actor-singer Herizen to deliver a lush, laid-back synth pop production that’s all about breaking off a toxic relationship.
