Each week, we pick the newest electronic music tracks, albums and music videos to have on your radar. Here are our favorites:
“You’re singing a sad song but you make it sound happy.” That pretty much sums up Alesso’s latest single, “Sad Song,” as he pairs a saccharine dance pop tune and Argentine actress-singer Tini’s feathery light vocals with melancholic lyrics about heartbreak.
London producer Burial continues his trend of releasing two-song singles with “Claustro” and “State Forest.” The tunes stand at opposite ends of the BPM spectrum: The former features a frenetic, club-ready beat while the latter takes it down a notch, stitching together samples of ghostly whispers and tape clicks for an unsettling, foggy soundscape.
Kaskade readies his fans for the summertime with an infectious new song, “With You,” featuring Meghan Trainor. The pop singer’s powerhouse vocals are layered over the DJ’s snappy, electropop production that incorporates bouncy synths and groovy house beats.
Australian electronic outfit Hermitude has teamed up with singer-songwriter Soaky Siren and rapper Vory for their newest offering, “Northern Lights.” In typical Hermitude fashion, the bass-heavy song builds to a high before breaking into a satisfying beat drop.
After a two-year absence, Floating Points—aka Sam Shepherd—finally makes his return to music with “LesAlpx,” an intoxicating dancefloor burner that’s driven by an intense bassline. The song leads Shepherd’s forthcoming 12-inch release, LesAlpx / Coorabell, that’s due out next month via Ninja Tune.
