The virtues of being a VIRTU fan are endless. That much has been more than apparent after his stunning performances on both remixes and originals. And now, the Los Angeles based electronic artist has taken on Imad Royal and Mark Johns’ sensational rendition of Nirvana’s Heart-Shaped Box for his latest track. VIRTU’s remix starts out slow and deliberate, building ever so intensely towards its mind melting drop. Dubstep and electro house interweave on the glorious edit. Shuddering bass and laser-cut synths leave us trembling in bliss. Why can’t there be more rock and electronica crossovers like this magnificent electro grunge track? Download/stream the track, here.

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.

DEAD2ME wasn’t what I expected to hear from Robokid when I was first afforded a generous preview of the track earlier this month, but I soon found myself marveling over the Los Angeles producer’s versatile talent and the song’s gripping alt sound. We’re witness to an incredible paradigm shift as Robokid captivates us with a superbly catching tune whose pulsing cadence and gritty vocals evoke The Chainsmokers’ recent music, or twentyone pilots and Blink-182 gone electro. The producer explains: 

in this song i was trying 2 capture my feelings when losing touch with friends whether or not it was by choice or beyond control..i hope it makes u feel some type of way.” It’s a rather poignant and familiar topic. Robokid creates an intimate sense of rapport as he takes us on a whirlwind ride with his dashing new alt electro track. Watch the lyric video for DEAD2ME below. The single is available on all major services, 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.

Windy City electronic marvels Autograf recently released a new four-track remix pack for their latest single Dead Soon the other day, and we immediately hopped on the listening train since we’re absolutely enamored with the dark romanticism of the epic future bass song, which also features Bonsai Mammal and Lils. Aside from superb edits by Scorsi, Golf Clap, and a chill mix by Autograf themselves, the release also features this remix by Chicago brothers Birthdayy Partyy. It’s a party in our ears as the duo turn Dead Soon into a very lively bass house smasher with rumbling bass and metallurgic snarling synths. You can download the track, here. Stream Autograf’s Dead Soon remixes, here, and support by downloading via other platforms, here.

Who’s excited for CHVRCHES new album? We only have a few days to go before Love Is Dead hits the shelves, and I can’t wait for my pre-order to arrive in the mail. Let’s celebrate with a stellar remix of the Scottish electropop outfit’s synth towering, kaleidoscopic whirling single Get Out, by none other than soy loving Vancouver electronic whiz tofû! He’s given the track a celestial dose of vibrant energy on his sweeping dance remix. It’s a profoundly lifting experience, a beautifully balanced synthrock and melodic bass edit that will leave us beaming for the rest of the day. The remix is a free download, here.

Historically, Bonnie and Clyde were notorious criminals, yet famed legends… but there’s another distinguished duo named BONNIE X CLYDE who’s well worthy of our obsession these days. The vocal bass duo continue to mesmerize and thrill us with their brand of cinematic future bass on The Unknown. Beautifully haunting vocals, reminiscent of early BROODS, Echos, and 

XYLØ, pull us into an inky world full of exciting mystery and intrigue. BXC explain: “This track was inspired by the unknown. That feeling of being unsure about what’s coming, what’s next, what things will look like in the future & not being fully sure of what will happen. Through this song we encourage you not to fear the unknown & just go for it. Whatever it is in life you are passionate about or truly enjoy, give it your all.” Stream/download The Unknown, here.

It’s been a moment since we’ve visited with our favorite dance pachyderm from LA, but now that Elephante has released a terrific preview of his upcoming 9 track EP, it’s high time we delved straight back into the versatile artist’s vibrant music. Glass Mansion: Prologue features four tastes from the forthcoming project, which drops on June 15th. It’s a guest talent studded affair, as all four tracks he’s unveiled feature magnificent vocal cameos. For now, let’s turn our attention to Have It All, featuring ever pervasive chanteuse Nevve. Elephante presents us with an emotive stirring, lithesome skipping pop meets dance song with crisp affecting melodies and metallic thrumming synths. We can’t decide whether to melt into the floor or get up and dance. Maybe we can do both and “have it all”. Pre-order Glass Mansion, here. Listen to Glass Mansion: Prologue in full on Soundcloud, here.

Though Cymba and Victoria Rojas are both new on our radar, we’ve been convinced by their song together that we need to follow both the artists closely going forth. Cymba, a production project from the windy city of Chicago, offers up dusky plinking, haute enchanting future bass and chill trap on Lost, whilst fellow Chi-town talent Victoria Rojas turns in sweetly soothing, honeyed and supple vocals on the endearing track. If this is what being lost feels like, then sign me up, I don’t want to ever be found again! Lost can also be streamed/downloaded via alternate outlets, here.

Apparently, Khamsin’s “way” is also our way. The French producer has released his much-anticipated new single, My Way, featuring long time IHM favorite MOONZz on stellar vocals. And the track’s melodic trap and high-wire future bass is exactly the type of dynamic electronica and pop we love. Intensive percussion, thrilling drops, and intricate instrumentals embellish the magnificent song. Khamsin, who’s also a member of electronic super group Slow Hours, has expertly blended live instrumentals (those smooth guitar licks, wow) with a vividly animated future bass sound. MOONZz vocals are beautiful over Khamsin’s whimsical soundscape. Stream/download My Way, here.
