Life can’t get any better for an Elohim fan like me these days. I just caught her on tour at Slim’s in San Francisco the other weekend. She released Panic Attacks, a new song with Yoshi Flower, last month. And her effervescent voice graced The Glitch Mob’s life affirming I Could Be Anything earlier this month, too. And now, the Los Angeles based production, songwriting, and instrumental sensation (so sensational!) has appeared on a new single from Ekali and Medasin, too! They make the perfect trifecta on the gorgeous future pop and future trap aria. Its sparkling soundscape and Elohim’s enthralling voice give Forever a delicate vulnerability, a beautiful antithesis to Forever’s expansive, cosmic scope. We feel naked and comforted, defenseless and consoled, all at once, thanks to the nimble embrace of this gorgeous song. You can listen to Forever forever with us, support the single and stream/download, here.

We aren’t done with our ZHU kick for the night just yet. While we’d love to spend the rest of the night with ZHU and Tame Impala’s My Life on endless repeat, we’re also more than happy to raise the energy level several notches with a hard and heavy remix that comes courtesy of California’s own NGHTMRE. The producer has given ZHU and Ekali’s Blame a raucous and unruly, tumultuous and jarring edit that boasts some nasty drops and filthy chops. While it’s not the most strident and vehement NGHTMRE track we’ve ever enjoyed, the trap and bass remix achieves a perfect balance in texture, restraint, and release. To put it simply, it’s a wicked track. And it’s available, here.

An epic union graces our ears as Canadian producer Ekali teams up with esteemed house magician ZHU on Blame. They seamlessly meld their signature styles on the explosive electronic track. Dark syncopated beats, tense percolating synths, and ZHU’s sooty brooding drawl pull us into the future trap spectacular, out now on OWSLA. Blame keeps us on our toes yet seduces us with its torrid, muggy heat. Snag the immense song, here.

Silky light and dreamy sheer is Past Life, a heavenly new treat from Canadian producer Ekali, who links up with alt R&B and electro-soul duo Opia on the sublimely soothing, velveteen caressing single. Ekali has crafted a warm, iridescent future soul and plush, extravagant chill trap anthem. We lose ourselves in its flowing drapes and satin swells, while Opia’s buttery vocals caress our molten hearts. I’m not sure I believe in past lives, future lives, and re-incarnation, but I sure hope that Ekali and Opia are still in my life whatever may come. Stream/purchase Past Life, here.

The union presents us with a spectacular remix of Porter’s Language, lifting us to great zeniths of ecstasy with their melodic thrusting, synth flickering rendition.

A plethora of incredible remixes have already been unleashed for Snakehips and MØ’s hit collaboration Don’t Leave, including edits by the likes of Gryffin and Oshi, who gave us very different interpretations of the song. The latest official remix and fresh turn comes by way of Canada’s Ekali. This first track of 2017 from the gifted producer fills us with all the feels on this misty Sunday morning. We wax nostalgic over memories from a weekend gone too soon as MØ’s longing vocals pierce our hearts from a sea of wavy rippling future bass and regal pounding, celestial chiming trap. Ekali’s gorgeous remix is available from all major services, here.

Akira is a behemoth of a trap beast, a tension packed high strung spectacular. It comes from the genius partnership that is Canadian production whiz Ekali and Oakland’s KRANE (formerly KRNE). If it’s heavy hitting yet meticulously intricate electronic hip hop vibes you’re searching for, you’ve hit the jackpot. Akira whizzes and curls, needles and hisses, but it also has its breathtaking melodic moments, making it a cinematic saga of epic proportions. RL Grime and Lido interweave on this sure to be legendary track. Akira is a free download here. You can also support it by purchasing from iTunes.

This may be the second track I’ve shared today related to Australian super team Ta-ku and Wafia, but it’s one not to be taken lightly. Canadian electronic prodigy Ekali gives us a cosmic interpretation of the duo’s ravishing collaboration Meet In The Middle, transforming the original into a vast and expansive future bass masterpiece full of wonder. Ekali takes my breath away and humbles me with his twilight remix. All the little spats and grudges of daily life seem so inconsequential in the face of such cinematic lush beauty. Download Ekali’s transcendental remix from Toneden.

Flux Pavilion’s I Can’t Stop holds a special place in my heart, having had a huge effect on the progression of my electronic music taste as one of the most massively hooking dubstep hits of the early 2010′s. Apparently, the same holds true for many of the talented producers thrilling our ears today. Canada’s Ekali offers up a tribute of sorts by remixing I Can’t Stop and giving it a Flume reminiscent future trap grandeur. It’s a cinematic revisit of a timeless jam and a dramatic sonic adventure. Download Ekali’s remix for free, here.

Los Angeles’ Falcons and Canada’s Ekali join forces to present us with a new original named I Won’t Lie, a somberly heaving trap ballad featuring vocals by emerging Australian talent Vanessa Elisha. This international union concocts a steamy scorcher of a finely textured, dynamic opus. The blaring intense number and Vanessa Elisha’s ravishing vocals are a sure shot for any hearts that also adore music by What So Not and Flume, namely, my own.
