I just watched The Knocks slay all over again at Outside Lands Music Festival in Golden Gate Park over the weekend, and they sure took full command of the Twin Peaks stage when they dropped their funky grooving set. But it’s a very different The Knocks we get to experience today, as Brooklyn’s Dulsae gives us an unexpectedly meditative and atmospheric remix of Classic, featuring POWERS. The melodic re-work is a huge surprise and miles away from the original, yet so incredibly moving and beautiful. This laid back and airy Classic is a cosmic transformation, a perfectly balanced acoustic and electronic aria that presents me with my first ever chill step and melodic bass The Knocks experience.

Enigmatic producer Kid Froopy’s latest is an adventure named Show Me, and he certainly shows us a spectacular world on the melodic bass epic, creating tremors in the very ground under our feet with his magnificent dubstep meets nightcore song. Tender vocals and cinematic production create a dichotomy, on the one hand pummeling my heart, on the other hand raising my serotonin levels exponentially.

Los Angeles up and comer Andrew Grant last graced us with a soulful rendition of Post Malone hit, White Iverson. The producer has since linked up with electro R&B outfit RKCB, who deliver signature velveteen vocals on Andrew Grant’s Slow Burn. It’s an aptly named simmering soul and tense electronic beauty drenched in aged whiskey and fine wine. RKCB woos us with their satin crooning while the song wobbles and slinks along, building to grand levels of cathartic release. Download Andrew Grant’s new masterpiece for free, here.

My love for Joni Fatora’s gorgeous voice grows ever stronger this year. Not only has she just lent her vocals to Manila Killa’s massive debut original All That’s Left, but she’s also an enchanting, wispy siren on Fortress, a majestic new reveal off ILLENIUM’s forthcoming album, Ashes. The producer from Denver is ever sweeping on the weightless, airy chill step song, a perfect match for Joni Fatora’s gentle, graceful voice. ILLENIUM has kindly made Fortress a free download here, to tide us over until the release of his highly anticipated melodic dubstep full length, out February 15th.

We’ve been lucky to have been graced with amazing guest vocals on many of the best electronic dance tracks of the past year. From my last post’s Rozes to NYC’s Evvy, these chanteuses are the very reason some of those hits are so emotionally potent and stirring. It’s been some months now since Evvy released a sweeping electronic pop song named Tidal Wave, whose rippling cascades of summery radiance are inescapably alluring. That luminous presence is now molded into soothing magnificence on a remix of Tidal Wave by Southern California’s Sound Remedy. Tidal Wave takes on a profound, ambient depth that crests and breaks with slow deliberation. The remix is a future bass tinted cinematic glide of beauty, a remedy indeed for whatever heartaches besieging your soul.

As expected, I’ve been hearing Miike Snow’s Genghis Khan a lot, and I’m quite content about it, since I’m much fond of the buoyantly infectious synthpop song. Last week, we heard a dazzling remix of Genghis Khan by Empress Of, but this week, Genghis Khan goes more chill on a future bass remix by Louis The Child. I’m loving its deliberate and spacious pace, its shimmies, skips, and wobbles. This is a much more introspective Genghis Khan, mesmerizing and thoughtful.

Nary a day goes by without some form of cover gracing the IHM pages these days. Though this is a remix of a cover, it’s far too heavenly to pass up. German producer EZY Lima remixed Floridian singer songwriter Tayler Buono’s pop cover of Justin Bieber’s Sorry. The resulting love step and chill trap track is a gleaming, shiny treat sure to make your night feel that much more beautiful. Head over to EZY Lima’s facebook for a free download.

By now, we all know very well that any song that involves the vocals of velveteen songbird Daniela Andrade must be heavenly. The Canadian singer songwriter offers her gorgeous voice to Dabin’s latest, a chillstep ballad named Hold that oozes such sweet, wistful sentiment. The Toronto based producer crafts a cinematic dubstep soundscape much mellow and gorgeous, blending organic strings into his rolling drums and glimmering synths. Hold will be out December 1st on Kannibalen Records.

Just A Gent sends me into a state of bliss with his new original, an ethereal future bass pumper named Heavy As A Heartbreak, featuring fellow Australian LANKS. Just A Gent likes to call his melodic bass music “lovestep” a fine and fitting descriptor for the amazing tune. Heavy As A Heartbreak is truly heavy with its frenetic oscillations and ripping bass, which contrast bewitchingly with LANKS’ smooth and creamy vocals. My own heart seems to rise and drop with each undulating cut of Just A Gent’s chill trap synths. It bathes in euphoria and swims in anguish simultaneously. Heartbreak, after all, is as beautifully stirring as it is reeling with its obstinate intensity.
