For nearly a decade, Uffie has been absent from the scene, aside from her surprise appearance on Charli XCX’s excellent mixtape Number 1 Angel. So the fact that the synthpop/alt dance artist has suddenly popped back up with a new single is an unexpected delight. And that single, named Drugs, is a spectacular treat, too. Spacious and sleek electronic pop vaults Uffie right back to the tippy top of the pop ranks. Drugs is her first single in seven long years. Its pellucid synths and crisp beats are reminiscent of both SOPHIE and BloodPop®. Aside from Drugs, Uffie is also due to drop a new song with Galantis tomorrow! Stay tuned for that gem.

Jimothy Lacoste is a favorite new find of the day. Just watch the 18 year old British musician’s music video for his latest single, Subway System, and then tell me he isn’t brilliant. Turns out, the young talent is already a viral sensation back at home with the few releases he has out. His bedroom pop is playful and buoyant. He drizzles us with sing-song rap vocals and a dreamy drawl. Combined with the track’s bouncy step, Subway System is like King Krule wedded with the whimsical pop of acts like Kero Kero Bonito and Mallrat. A subway system seems a rather mundane topic to make a song about, but there’s something infinitely charming about Jimothy Lacoste’s laid back music. Jimothy produces all his own beats in his bedroom, and he’s truly mastered the art of creating addictive music. For more of this obvious artist-to-watch’s songs, watch the clips for self produced singles DRUGS and FUTURE BAE below, too. Subway System can be streamed/purchased, here.

There’s no denying the brilliance of REZZ’s collaboration with Toronto producer 13. We previously extolled dark and visceral, acidic and hypnotic DRUGS!, here. It’s no wonder that REZZ is considered one of the most talented and intriguing producers out there right now. Salt Lake City psychedelic bass project K Theory must have been drawn to the trippy headiness of the jam, because he’s offered up a brain jarring, synapses melting rework of DRUGS!. And really, I can’t think of anyone better to take on the track. His glitch hop and acid bass approach is more than appropriate for the original. In fact, no other mind altering substances are necessary for a cosmic psychotropic odyssey with this sick remix droning, warbling, and oscillating through our ears. I feel like I’m caught up in new dimension, or a sci-fi fantasy, like a Blade Runner film set further into the future, perhaps centuries ahead.

REZZ is on a fast roll lately, dropping behemoth tunes left and right on a near weekly basis. To check out some of the enigmatic producer’s recent bangers, head to her Soundcloud, here. Tonight, we re-visit the latest iteration of her brain jostling, mind melting music in the form of DRUGS!, on which she collaborates with Toronto’s 13. As its name probably suggests, this is an acidic head trip of a psy trance meets dubstep jam. Its visceral warbles and alien soundscape immerses us in a surreal world while placing us in a state both electrified and hypnotized. I can assure you, all the drugs you need are right here in DRUGS!, which, alongside all the other tracks this gifted producer has released lately affords us a riveting preview of her debut album Mass Manipulation, arriving on August 4th. You can pre-order the album, here.

D/R/U/G/S is a UK based 26 year old electronic artist whose music as is intoxicating as that name might suggest. He creates serotonin inducing textures in his ambient house music, giving us tunes as meditative as they are danceable. New Born Love, which features cool gliding pop vocals by Akiine, is a supple pumping, dusky entrancing gem and a fine example of D/R/U/G/S gorgeous sound. The song is the title track from D/R/U/G/S’ EP, coming soon on Code Silence later this year.

By now, we’re all well aware of what to expect on a new EDEN song. A dynamic soundscape meshing acoustic with electronic elements, heavy hearted atmospheric surges, and vocals that break under the weight of emotion are but a few things that come to mind. The effects are addictive, so it’s fitting that the Irish singer songwriter and producer’s new song is named Drugs. The gut wrenching, powerfully resonating opus comes from EDEN’s new EP “i think you think too much of me”, out August 19th. Drugs is an instant download if you pre-order the EP from iTunes.

There are some great new music videos out today for songs I avidly adore, so consider this one the first of many redux features to grace your ears. These are also fantastic chances for some of you to catch wind of these fantastic tunes if you happened to miss them up till now. First up is the magenta vivid video for DREAMERS’ Drugs, an epic pop punk and garage rock anthem from the Brooklyn based band. When I first shared this song last month, I marveled over the fact that songs like Drugs are all we need to for a giddy natural high. Drugs is a shaggy roller coaster extravaganza much like a blend of Weezer, WATERS, and Bleachers. Drugs comes off of DREAMERS’ You Are Here EP, out now. Stream and purchase You Are Here from various outlets, here

Drugs is such a common theme in music, but if you ask me, the best drug in the world is music. Private Island demonstrates just how intoxicating their music can be on their song Drugs, a muggy sleek groover and the latest fabulously snazzy treat from the Los Angeles six piece. These guys are dashing suave when it comes to crafting and delivering sultry swooners consisting of jazzy funk and steamy rock. Drugs is available now on Apple Music. The luxuriant song will also be on a new EP, releasing soon.

Who needs drugs when we have DREAMERS? The Brooklyn band are a lifetime’s worth of intoxication and charm on new song Drugs. The shaggy garage rock anthem’s pop punk luminescence and sludge filled gaiety combine for one of the most hooking, uplifting grunge fests of late. Drugs is like a Weezer, WATERS, and Bleachers rollercoaster extravaganza. “I don’t want to come down”, they bellow. There’s no coming down while listening to this raucous and rowdy gem.
