Each week, we pick the newest electronic music tracks, albums and music videos to have on your radar. Here are our favorites:
Norwegian producer Kygo has transformed Whitney Houston’s soulful 1990 cover of Steve Winwood’s “Higher Love” into an uplifting, sun-kissed dance pop number. Backing her powerful vocals with his signature lush tropical house sound, the EDM hitmaker successfully does the late pop icon justice.
Bonobo has returned with yet another dreamy single, “Linked.” The six-minute-long track opens with gentle percussion before bright synths and subtle vocal yelps enter, kicking the song’s energy into high gear.
Marshmello continues to push boundaries on his latest album, Joytime III. It features “Angklung Life,” his collab with Dutch DJ Wiwek, which layers angklung percussion over frenetic tribal-inspired beats. The result? A hypnotizing soundtrack for sweaty dancefloors.
NGHTMRE, Shaquille O’Neal and Lil Jon head out to Miami for a weekend of fun in the video for their latest collab, “Bang.” The trio check things off a lengthy to-do list, which includes getting hammered, cruising around in a Ferrari and spending a day at the spa.
UK electronic duo Gorgon City’s new song is a tribute to Elizabeth Street in Chicago. The groove-laden, pop house track boasts euphoric synths and a deep bassline. Be sure to listen out for the subtle yet satisfying beat drop that comes in at the tail end of the song.
