Fresh off their collaboration with brassy electro-funk brothers French Horn Rebellion comes new Patawawa jam Lie, a swanky twirling disco banger through and through. Its French house swagger is as infectious as a classic Daft Punk jam, with a whole lot of frisky synths and scalding beats. Patawawa’s put out some fantastic songs in the past, but Lie might be their best yet. It’s a solid gold track that also reminds me of some of my favorite Flight Facilities tracks of yore, due to its rich, sultry vocals and its plucky attitude. LIE is the first song revealed from Cookie Records’ new compilation Crispy Groove, out in early June. Download/stream Patawawa’s swag new tune, here.

It’s been a few short weeks since HIGHSOCIETY dropped his original Fireproof, featuring Matty McDonald, but I think we’re still on fire from its tour de force trap and future bass. Re-visit our feature of the track, here. Adding fuel to the fire is the ascending electronic maven’s official remix of Paces’ Savage 2.0, featuring Nessyl & NYNE. He’s given the Australian producer’s already banging future bass thriller a thunderous whomping dubstep rework whose capricious fortitude and metallurgic edge evoke our favorite Skrillex tracks of yore. The brain jogging, body slamming thrillride of a remix is out on etcetc music. Stream/download, here.

My heart palpitated with excitement when I encountered a fresh track from young production whiz k?d last week. A new banger from the genius producer usually sets my heart on fire already, but this time around, k?d has partnered up with veteran magnate Wolfgang Gartner, too. Prepare for a rush of thrills as the duo assaults our ears and pumps us up with some throwback electro house on cinematic and theatrical Banshee, a must for any fan of Justice and Sebastian, but with a harder hitting approach. Banshee would fit right in on Ed Banger Records collection of French house inspired jams. Stream/purchase the exultant thrasher, here.

Late last year, mysterious new production talent Snugs made his debut with an ear turning, feet moving future bass ditty named Radio Silence, featuring honey-dipped vocals by HAILZ. It was a song that made waves in the electronic scene, racking up well over a million streams via Proximity’s label. Now, Snugs is back with warm synths, playful arpeggios, and punchy beats on another resplendent tune named Flooded, and this time around, he’s brought LA based pop singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Axel Mansoor in tow on buttery vocals. Flooded is a flood of future funky ecstasy, a flashy sleek, swanky hot banger appropriate for some snug dancing with that crush you’re so sweet on. Flight Facilities meets Duke Dumont on the sizzling tune. Stream/purchase this ace second offering from Snugs, here.

Earlier this month, Hudson Mohawke collaborators and genre defying alt talents Off Bloom released their five track EP, Lover Like Me, on Capitol Records. The title track is an excellent sampling of the Anglo-Danish trio’s trademark blend of noise pop, dancehall, and spry electronica that sounds kind of like MS MR, NAATIONS, and Mura Masa, all wrapped up in one epic glistering, vivacious capering song. Off Bloom’s new EP includes their song with Hudson Mohawke, “rockefe11a (F**k That To Be Honest), as well as previously shared tunes like Shut Up And Let Me Walk and more. Speaking about the EP’s creation, the band explains, “This EP is about love, sex, frustration, intoxication and of course loyalty loyalty loyalty. It’s a culmination of tracks that came together at very different times of our lives, all representing what we were feeling at the time, but with a similar vibe running through them.” Purchase the EP from iTunes, here.

‘Switch’ is a mesmerizing collabo from James Gent, Octn, Akamu, and Shisto. The vocal samples on this future trap banger are heaven sent. I’d liken the track to white water rafting – at times peaceful, at times frantically paced, but all leading up to a stellar finish. ‘Switch’ is a nonstop beauty.

Audien and 3LAU linked up for a widescreen jarring spectacular named Hot Water earlier this summer, featuring entrancing vocals by Victoria Zaro. It was a melodious beauty to behold, with plenty of voltage to keep our hearts a pumping in exhilaration. Now, Vegas electronic auteur 3LAU has taken the track and given it a fresh new drum & bass meets dubstep rendering, and it’s absolutely stupendous. Get ready to be shake, rattled, and rolled by the whomping, whizzing percussion and bass implosion. This “hot water” is hotter than hot. It’s hundreds of degrees above boiling point. Grab the vigorous thriller of a remix, here.

House pop siren Becky Hill just released her new EP Eko, and she’s shared the final song off of it named Unpredictable. As we could have easily “predicted”, it’s quite the sultry soulful swooner. The London based 23 year old artist hits us hard with some deep thumping beats and her smoky, husky voice. Deep house meets gospel-tinged R&B on the smoldering banger, of which Becky states: 

“I didn’t write Unpredictable for myself originally, but I fell in love with it and needed it as my own! I love this song because it was about keeping faith in a time when I was running low on hope. It’s also the most up tempo song I’ve released under my own name to date and definitely a song I’ve danced round my lounge to a couple times!” Her new Eko EP is a brilliant showcase of her myriad influences, from club music to pop to alternative R&B. It also includes prior singles like Warm produced by Shift K3Y, Back to My Love featuring Lil Simz and produced by Noah Breakfast, and Rude Love produced by MNEK and Dimitri Tikovoi. It’s obvious Becky Hill has just unleashed a massive EP into the wild. You can stream/purchase Eko, here.
