Each week, we pick the newest electronic music tracks, albums and music videos to have on your radar. Here are our favorites:
After stumbling upon Nelly Furtado’s “Afraid,” off her 2006 album Loose, Four Tet immediately decided to put his spin on the Timbaland-produced track. The result is “Only Human,” an infectious and energetic UK Garage-influenced tune that never lets up.
“It’s Something We All Can Learn From” is HAAi’s follow-up to last July’s Motorik Voodoo Bush Doof Musik EP. Described as “fun [and] fruity,” the track’s a psychedelic house number that melds rattling instrumentals with snippets of spoken vocals, backed by strong bass.
Jennifer Lee, aka TOKiMONSTA, has shared her first original offering since 2017’s Lune Rouge. “Strange Froot” features vocals from Grammy-winning soul singer Ambré and laid-back production. It’s also the first single off Lee’s forthcoming compilation, Young Art Sound II, out May 3.
Com Truise has debuted “Existence Schematic,” the first track off his upcoming mini-album, Persuasion System. Like his previous works, the song is another distinct homage to the ’80s, featuring spacey synths and a hypnotic drum pattern.
Hyperion by Gesaffelstein
French techno wizard Gesaffelstein has dropped his most commercial-leaning album yet. On Hyperion, the DJ-producer has recruited some of music’s hottest names, including The Weeknd (“Lost in the Fire”), Pharrell (“Blast Off”) and indie pop rockers Haim (“So Bad”). The LP also features “Forever,” a collab with fellow French electronic artist The Hacker and Electric Youth’s Bronwyn Griffin, and the previously released club banger, “Reset.”
