Future bass and chill trap might be the “flavor du jours” of the moment, but there’s no denying how much I’m drawn to those subgenres of electronic music, no matter if they happen to be popular at the moment or not. As in any trending genre of music, there’s the good, the bad, and the ugly, and you have to dig around to find the true gems. Well, this one’s not just good, it’s absolutely gorgeous. Aside from the impending Olympics, there’s something else to be excited about in Brazil right now, and his named is I.Y.F.F.E. The producer from Rio delivers atmospheric rousing, ethereal airy future bass on his new original Storm, which also features beautiful vocals by Desiree Dawson, who’s graced us with her voice in the past on many tracks by other artists (ie. Pat Lok, k?d, Bobby Puma). Storm, though dramatic, is ravishing resplendent. It pitter patters in its tender moments, like the soft falling of rain, but it bursts with crackling lightning at its most intensive peaks. A draftiness builds up from its brassy horns, and I find myself in the middle of a powerful and moving sonic “storm” that leaves me exhilarated and cleansed. Storm is a free download, here.

Castaway is one of my favorite pop songs this year, and most certainly the most infectious tropical melodic gem that Jordanian by way of New York starlet King Deco has given us so far. Despite its sun kissed radiance, Castaway is actually a gut wrenching ode to heartbreak. New York’s Almand, who we previously knew as Almond, has taken that emotive force and translated it into sharp slicing, sparkling vibrant future bass. The aforementioned heartbreak takes on a wistful urgency and bittersweet beauty that dominates in a deeply compelling fashion. King Deco’s crisp enchanting voice surrounded by Almand’s gusty exuberant production is a magnificent combination of heart rending and scintillating. The remix is a free download, here.

Nero’s Two Minds is undeniably epic, an unforgettable track off the British trio’s 2015 album Between II Worlds. It’s that song that we get to re-visit this glorious morning, but this Two Minds has been tweaked, to say the least. Though it’s sweeping cinematic and has its smoothly fluid moments, you’ll want to prepare yourself for the hard drop that hits a quarter of a way through. And you’ll want to buckle yourself in for the rest of this high adrenaline ride. Miami based DJ and producer Damaged Goods has joined forces with Australian model, actress, DJ, and recording artist Ruby Rose to remix Two Minds, and their thrilling deep future modification is jouncing vibrant and dark tumultuous. The only bruised and “damaged goods” here is probably me, after going bonkers wild to this sharp jabbing, vociferous throbbing beast of a remix. The savage fierce, raging exhilarating track is a free download, here

Though this one’s been floating around for nearly a month now, I only recently encountered the trap scintillation that is Jinco’s remix of Adrian Lux’s Teenage Crime. It’s far too sensational of a listen not to share, and as they say, better late than never. I’ve always found it impossible to resist Swedish producer Adrian Lux’s enchanting melody on Teenage Crime. That mellifluous beauty is taken to theatrical levels of gripping intensity by Santa Cruz based producer Jinco. It’s a Hudson Mohawke and Flume sort of concoction that he deftly offers us, a rich whomping, resplendent chopping, sharp jolting electronic opera. Download this beast of a track for free, here.

It’s a grand scintillating, potent slicing burst of trap magnificence on Don’t Walk Away, an electronic opus from Atlanta’s Popeska. I’m glued to where I stand, lost in this regal cinematic track. There’s no way anyone can walk away from this refined and bold, animated and elaborate work of tense riveting sonic art. Its cresting peaks and rolling meadows envelope me in euphoria on this dark summer night. Don’t Walk Away is a free download, here.

Floridian producer Tommy Pax linked up with his production buddy Royalle on an official remix that breathes new life into me at this late night, mid week hour. Their opulent pumping, vibrant thrushing remix of hip hop artist Johnny Gr4ves’ Say Yes is a future trap eruption of crisp 808s and rich bass. The buoyant hooking, dapper vibrant remix is a free download, here

Autograf’s Heartbeat is on the receiving end of some magnificent remixes spread across a wide expanse of electronic genres. We turn from last week’s ebullient jouncing disco house remix by Solidisco to a future soulful, ethereal floating chill trap edit by Maryland’s Dirty Chocolate. The fizzy sweet, dreamy inebriating remix by the OWSLA and Moving Castle collective producer is R&B smooth and flawless fleek, with plenty of soothing space to breathe. You’ll want to take long breaths and let out deep sighs to this one.

It was French producer Kidswaste’s birthday yesterday, and as luck would have it, he’s another one of those generous musicians who likes to give us gifts on their special day. Thank you, and happy birthday, sir. New song Free is a breathtaking beauty. It opens like a misty dream before sublimely mellow acoustics and gliding light vocals kick in, liberating us from the invisible shackles of the world for a brief moment. Chill house, dream folk, and atmospheric electronica intermingle as Kidswaste delivers us into the arms of sonic catharsis. Free is, pun unintended, free download, here.

The name of Goss’ debut carries an emphatic five question marks. Perhaps those question marks represents the sheer sonic strength of the Danish newcomer’s R&B pop song in the same way that dollar signs or stars represent ratings and quality for restaurants or other objects. In other words,  I Want To Know????? gets a five out of five. It’s a spectacular introduction to Goss, a florid and complex home run from a musician who’s collaborated with many other artists from Denmark in the past, even contributing to MØ’s eagerly anticipated sophomore album. I Want To Know????? quivers and oscillates, wobbles and cascades, a dazzling patchwork of sound topped off with creamy smooth vocals. From Ben Khan like wooziness to hints of summer tropical Jack U vibes to Son Lux dynamics, this one seems to have it all. Each listen only reveals more, and trust me, you’ll want to listen more, and a lot more after that. Goss co-produced the stunning track alongside Vera, who produced previously featured Soleima track, Wasted. The Danes seem to be out in full force lately.
