You might recall Alec Benjamin as the gifted singer songwriter from Arizona who’s collaborated in the past with the likes of Jon Bellion, Matisyahu, Jamie Scott, and more. Or you might remember when we gushed fervently about his stripped down demo The Knife in My Back or ardently extolled the wistful beauty of End Of The Summer. Now we find ourselves sighing away to Alec Benjamin’s new single, Let Me Down Slowly, an R&B pop infused ballad brimming with lovelorn anguish but flush with resilient beats and a bass grooving cadence. That’s right, there’s no forgetting Alec Benjamin once he’s serenaded us with his vibing tunes, whether intimately stripped back or awash with rhythmic instruments. There’s no escaping his remarkable voice, delivered so effortlessly and with heartfelt sentiment. If there’s anyone you need to “let down slowly”, make sure to play them this song; it’ll smooth out the ongoing rough patch. Stream more of Alec Benjamin’s songs and demos on Soundcloud, here. Let Me Down Slowly is available, here.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know this next one is an epic track, even if you haven’t listened to it yet. After all, it brings together the talented expertise of Seattle dubstep/electro prodigy Seven Lions, Austin luminaries Tritonal, and NYC dubstep/electro connoisseurs Kill The Noise, AND it features breathtaking vocals by LA chanteuse HALIENE, too! We find ourselves racing our way towards a beautiful “horizon” on the plumed wings of this majestic and grand opus. Mellifluous yet heavy, smooth rolling yet resolute, this four way collaboration fuses electro house, dubstep, pop, future bass, and even drum & bass to give us a cornucopia of scintillating feels. Horizon can also be streamed and purchased, here.

I’m always excited when a new Machinedrum track surfaces, much less one that’s a remix of one of the tracks off Robotaki’s excellent EP, Science, which just dropped last month. The EP closer, which features City Fidelia, is a rousing blend of hip hop and electronica. Travis Stewart of Machinedrum turns Satisfied on its head by infusing it with loads of neon glistering, synth surging glitch hop energy on his slick shuddering, glossy quivering edit. If you’ve yet to take in Robotaki’s Science EP, stream the release in full, here.

Just the title Time, Real & Imaginary sends me spiraling into an episode of deep reflection and profound meditation. Listening to Time, Real & Imaginary, however, is even more intensive of an enlightening ordeal. What’s even more mind blowing is the fact that this introspective future bass opus comes from a 16 year old producer named Jaron. Imagine k?d’s already expansive and scopic electro house/future bass but multiply those aspects ten-fold and tone down the high-voltage jolts. Jaron’s exquisite orchestral trap composition brings us halcyon moments as well as near spiritual moments of heightened awareness and comprehension. Time, Real & Imaginary is crafted out of deep wisdom despite the producer’s young age. It’s incredibly evocative and beautiful, and a sweet moment of respite from the noise all around us. Jaron brings what really matters into focus. Time, Real & Imaginary is a free download, here.

Justice’s We Are Your Friends is a French house classic that’s more than survived the test of time since it first dropped in 2002. It takes some guts to take on such a song for a remix, but production brothers TWO LANES more than prove their mettle once again as they give us an exhilarating update by turning the track into a rambunctious whirring, bass romping spectacular. Seismic thrusts, percolating jabs, and vigorous surges leave us gasping for air on the blowout trap and future bass edit. Download TWO LANES’ remix, here.

The virtues of being a VIRTU fan are endless. That much has been more than apparent after his stunning performances on both remixes and originals. And now, the Los Angeles based electronic artist has taken on Imad Royal and Mark Johns’ sensational rendition of Nirvana’s Heart-Shaped Box for his latest track. VIRTU’s remix starts out slow and deliberate, building ever so intensely towards its mind melting drop. Dubstep and electro house interweave on the glorious edit. Shuddering bass and laser-cut synths leave us trembling in bliss. Why can’t there be more rock and electronica crossovers like this magnificent electro grunge track? Download/stream the track, here.

RL Grime is what I’d consider production royalty. The WeDidIt collective member has been a blazing pioneer in the trap, grime, and bass scene since 2011, and it was just over a month ago when he released an unexpectedly melodic and ethereal single with Daya named I Wanna Know, shedding his raucous jarring grittiness of yore. Los Angeles producer Kaivon, who previously dropped our jaws with his dramatic remix of Flume classic Insane, takes us on a propulsive odyssey with his take on the beautiful RL Grime track. We go on a life-changing journey with the producer as he vaults us to breathtaking apexes with his dynamic drops and expansive future bass/chill trap on the exultant remix. Kaivon’s I Wanna Know remix is a free download, here.

KLOUD more than satisfied us last month with the mysterious production project’s wicked original, Satisfied, which reminded us of some of our favorite Nero and Flux Pavlion classics, updated with the vigor of contemporary trap music. The cloaked producer has been making waves lately with a five track release fleshed out with his prior well-received releases, as well as a new title track named Burn Me. It’s a smooth stuttering electro trap dazzler with contagious melodies and a whole lot of high voltage verve. KLOUD has truly set us on fire with his incendiary track. Keep that flame blazing by taking in KLOUD’s glorious releases, here.

Windy City electronic marvels Autograf recently released a new four-track remix pack for their latest single Dead Soon the other day, and we immediately hopped on the listening train since we’re absolutely enamored with the dark romanticism of the epic future bass song, which also features Bonsai Mammal and Lils. Aside from superb edits by Scorsi, Golf Clap, and a chill mix by Autograf themselves, the release also features this remix by Chicago brothers Birthdayy Partyy. It’s a party in our ears as the duo turn Dead Soon into a very lively bass house smasher with rumbling bass and metallurgic snarling synths. You can download the track, here. Stream Autograf’s Dead Soon remixes, here, and support by downloading via other platforms, here.

Apparently, Khamsin’s “way” is also our way. The French producer has released his much-anticipated new single, My Way, featuring long time IHM favorite MOONZz on stellar vocals. And the track’s melodic trap and high-wire future bass is exactly the type of dynamic electronica and pop we love. Intensive percussion, thrilling drops, and intricate instrumentals embellish the magnificent song. Khamsin, who’s also a member of electronic super group Slow Hours, has expertly blended live instrumentals (those smooth guitar licks, wow) with a vividly animated future bass sound. MOONZz vocals are beautiful over Khamsin’s whimsical soundscape. Stream/download My Way, here.
