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.

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.

Detroit to LA transplant Yoshi Flower is back with a new single named Woke, and it’s a splendorous effusion of the gifted artist’s genre-bending music. He first dashed on to the scene two months ago with Movies before featuring on Elohim’s Panic Attacks. I don’t usually watch live streams of festivals, but I just had to tune into Elohim’s set at Coachella, not only because we’re eternally in love with that amazing human, but because we’re such huge fans of Yoshi Flower too. It was a thrill to see the LA roommates tear up the stage with their song together. On new song Woke, Yoshi Flower expertly blends alt rock, hip hop, and trappy electronica to give us a truly enlightening song. He takes broiling guitars reminiscent of Opia and the sooty allure of The Neighbourhood then gives that concoction his own hazy smoldering twist. Yoshi recently finished working on his debut album, which we can’t wait to find out more about. He’s also hit the road with chillwave extraordinaire Washed Out for five West Coast dates culminating in shows in LA on May 30th and NYC on June 6th. Woke will be streaming on all major services come this Friday, May 18th. Re-visit our prior Yoshi Flower features, here.

PRXZM’s transcendental cover remix of LA producer William Black’s Letting Go, featuring Park Avenue, arrives like a soft, aching sigh, but it leaves us floating on cloud nine with its effulgent flickering, majestic marching beauty. Their milky smooth vocals and tender keys emphasize the original’s emotive future bass potency. Melancholia abounds even as we’re whisked away on a blissful journey by the refined rendition. I’ve always been drawn to sadness and the beauty it encapsulates in its own, unique way. PRXZM’s version of Letting Go is the epitome of all that I love about sorrow and joy. You can listen to the original, here.  PRXZM’s remix can be found on The Letting Go Remix EP, 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.

Every Wave” of Flapo’s recent remix hits with electric elation. The producer from Miami has given Swedish duo Tundran a thoroughly intoxicating that bends the track to his whim and fancy. While the original is a dreamy synthwave and synthpop treat, Flapo has turned Every Wave on its head and changed its course with a fluid and smooth future beats styled dance edit that’s stunningly atmospheric. Those very “waves” meld into one another to create an oceanic effect. We ride its currents, toppling over its concave crests and dipping into its choppy furrows in inebriated bliss. The remix is a free download, here.

Lucian has been a mainstay on our blog for many years. He steadily feeds us a supply of exceptionally produced tracks. So when a new song from the New Yorker comes our way again, it sort of feels like a case of “deja vu”. But that’s about where the strange familiarity stops, because Lucian’s music is diverse and variegated. He’s always linking up with a fine array of vocal talent on his songs, plus we can never predict what sort of affecting electronic opus he’ll bless us with. New song Deja Vu features saccharine vocals by fellow New Yorker Philosofie, and it’s quite the aerial darting, dreamy fluttering future bass and future pop confection. It brushes against us lightly, then skims back into the heavens, a celestial and jocular celebration of youthful love. Lucian promises more music to come, and we look forward to with much joy, particularly when cruising on the wings of this birdlike aria. Download Deja Vu, here.

Jordan Benjamin, the man behind fascinating project grandson, first landed on our radar several months ago when he released his single BLOOD//WATER to widespread acclaim. We were immediately blown away by his fresh fusion of rock, electronica, hip hop, and trap, so intensely and passionately delivered by his scratchy, raspy vocals and the hard hitting track’s vociferous energy. To our delight, many others noticed the genius behind the track, too, and grandson’s buzz has since flourished, growing exponentially by the day. Re-visit our BLOOD//WATER feature, here. grandson’s new song, OVERDOSE, arrives today. We’ve been waiting on pins and needles for a new song from grandson, and we’re absolutely thrilled with the quality of this emotive prowling, grainy drawling track, a dark and foreboding, bitter and feral torrent of grandson’s electro heaving, trap needling rock and hip hop. We can’t wait for a chance to experience grandson’s music live. I’d imagine it to be a visceral gripping and intensively consuming excursion. Keep up with this must watch artist via his website, here.
