Each week, we pick the newest electronic music tracks, albums and music videos to have on your radar. Here are our favorites:
Hot Chip have released a euphoric new single, “Melody of Love.” The track, which is built around a vocal sample from gospel group The Mighty Clouds of Joy, features psychedelic synths and disco influences. The song is the second single from their forthcoming album, A Bath Full of Ecstasy, due out June 21.
Jai Paul has made a surprise return to music after a seven-year hiatus. The elusive British producer dropped two new solo, R&B-tinged songs, “Do You Love Her Now” and “He.” The songs were also released alongside the launch of his new website.
Dog Blood—comprising Skrillex and Boys Noize—have made their much-anticipated return with Turn Off the Lights. The four-track release includes contributions from Josh Pan, M&G and Otira. The duo even sample a classic Punjabi song, “Bhabhi Meri Gutt Karde,” on opening track “Break Law.” The project is their first release since 2013’s Middle Finger, Pt 2.
Tokyo-based trio PKCZ—consisting of Verbal, DJ Daruma and Exile Makidai—have dropped “Cut it Up,” a collab with K-pop idol CL and American DJ Afrojack. The artists trade lines over the bouncy, synth-driven beat, performing verses in English, Korean and Japanese. The track was released with a video which draws influence from classic samurai films such as Lady Snowblood.
