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.

We’re still trying to get used to calling Pluko by his new moniker, having been fans of the Pittsburgh production whiz’s bedazzling concoctions for a long time whilst he was known as Pluto. The artist, who’s now signed to visionary label Foreign Family Collective, has teamed up with husky voiced singer songwriter MOONZz on a stunning new song named ‘asleep’. The dusky late night ballad seems to transport us straight into our darkest dreams, where our deepest desires reside. ‘asleep’ leaves us breathless with its tensely haunting, darkly churning future bass. It’s a slow burner of an atmospheric gem, one that leaves a more than lasting impression after its last poignant notes fade into the distance. Purchase/stream via alternate outlets, here.

Because of you, Delusion, I find myself on cloud nine, breathless and euphoric. The German producer’s cinematic chill trap and expansive future bass on Because Of You is nothing short of triumphant and glorious. Australian siren Akacia, who’s lent her breathy, smoky voice to many an electronic track we love, joins Delusion on the beautifully contorting, lushly twisting anthem, a must for fans of Flume and What So Not. Delusion’s Because Of You is out now, stream/download, here.

It’s impossible not to “Feel It” when Vincent takes on KRANE for a truly resplendent future bass remix. The Canadian producer has given the Oakland native’s Feel It, featuring CXLOE and Khamsin, a spectacularly ravishing re-work. He cranked out this regal marching, grandly surging future trap edit in Dim Mak’s studios, giving us a larger than life, utterly exhilarating new take on the original. The track comes off of Krane’s Fallout (The Remixes) release, which is available, here.

Mysterious new alt project outsideOUTSIDE blew us away last month when they emerged from the shadows with a spectacular first single named Habits, whose crestfallen mixture of dusky electronica, glitchy shuddering vocal bass, and raspy aching emo alt rock was nothing short of fresh and brilliant. I immediately marked them as a band to watch off that one single. Re-visit our feature of the track, here. On the heels of that debut comes a moody remix/cover of Lil Xan’s Betrayed. It’s obvious our convictions about this project are on point. Their rendition of Betrayed is dark and nebulous. Its muddy bristling vehemence is interspersed with aching keys, resulting in a slow burning yet intensely gripping listen on which outsideOUTSIDE incorporate elements from hip hop, alt rock, and cinematic vocal bass with laser precision. The track is available for free, here. We can’t wait to hear what outsideOUTSIDE has up their sleeves next.

This one’s been flittering about the interwebs for a month now, but we need to make sure you don’t miss out on the track, especially if you’re a Halsey fan, or a fan of electronic music that is profoundly moving and cathartic. Australian producer vowl. has teamed up with his buddy from Norway, hanz, to give Halsey’s Sorry a pitch shifted cinematic trap and future bass transformation that near leaves me speechless with its rousing grandeur and magnificence. It’s a heart bursting opus swimming with refined texture and glassy jarring beats. The beautiful remix is a free download, here.

NYC producer MEMBA has crafted a soundscape more than vibrant and vivid on Chasing Light. The future bass track is such a whimsically swervy, capricious whirring treat that it really does seem to lead us on a lively chase across a twilight vista. We gleefully pursue its dark, volatile melody and entangling instrumentals across a twilight vista. Chasing Light’s intricate production is complemented by Brooklyn based chanteuse Mothica and her ever enthralling dark pop. Together, they explore the turbulent emotions involved in falling out of love with someone. Mothica says of their elaborate collaboration: 

“MEMBA’s music is so colorful and my songwriting is often faded and grey, so I thought disguising some of my darkest thoughts amongst their bright sounds would be an interesting pairing. We wrote this back in October at a time where I was going out in New York a lot to avoid being alone after a relationship of mine ended. The line about ‘Chasing light’ is also a reference to a ‘moth attracted to the light’ and how that light is sometimes self-destruction.” Chasing Light is a free download, here.

Chi-town electronic whiz Mielo’s The Wayfarer, featuring ethereal vocals by Pauline Herr, gets a truly heavenly remix treatment from a mysterious Ohio based producer who goes by the name Dreweybear. To say his future bass edit is exquisite is an understatement. This is the sort of transcendental yet tender, atmospheric and gentle sojourn that draws out endless deep sighs. Dreweybear’s remix is a balm, an elixir, and a reminder of how beautiful the world is even in its most melancholic moments, when we’ve lost hope and don’t know which way to turn. Follow the light that is Dreweybear’s track as it eventually lifts us high above the clouds with an electro-charged finish reminiscent of the cathartic soundscapes that k?d and Porter oft drop. And if you’re craving for more from Dreweybear, stream his original The Rise, featuring Ashley Apollodor below, and marvel at its seamlessly rendered, bold and dramatic chill trap.

Dark bewitchment abounds on Burn, a magnificent and dramatic future R&B, trap, and bass opus from talented producer Madeaux. An all star crew of musicians join him on the track, including satin voiced New Yorker, Josh Pan, London seductress FiFi Rong, and new artist on our radar, HOLLY. This four way contingent casts an opaque spell on us with their edge-of-the-seat dusky thriller. Serpentine whizzing synths, sultry drawling vocals, and climactic percussion draw us into their tumultuously blistering world, dripping with longing and anguish. Burn brings together the sharp textures of Arca, SOHN, and What So Not with the sonic sorcery of BANKS and Sevdaliza. The song is the latest single off Madeaux’s album BURN, out now on Fool’s Gold. Stream on Spotify, here.

It’s been a moment since the last time we heard from one of our long time production favorites, Sweater Beats, whom we had the pleasure of dancing to and chatting with the last time he was in town at the legendary Fillmore last fall. You can catch our interview with the esteemed producer, here. Any length of time without some new Sweater Beats in our lives is far too excruciatingly long. So, we’re utterly overjoyed that he’s finally returned with a glorious new remix. MAX has been a ubiquitous name in the music scene this past year, whether as a guest vocalist, or as one half of Party Pupils, or on his own solo releases. The New Yorker left us melting into the floor with his moody simmering ballad Meteor late last year, and now Sweater Beats has transformed the track into an urgent and intense, dark and cinematic future bass anthem rippling with booming bass, jagged percussion, and heart-stopping drops. We know that Sweater Beats is quite the chameleon shape-shifter from all the different types of music he’s given us over the years. His new remix of MAX’s Meteor serves as a striking reminder that we can expect a fresh flurry of immensely gratifying and unpredictably compelling releases this year. Stream/purchase Sweater Beats’ remix via major platforms, here.
