I want to stay forever, cradled in the starlit future bass that an epic congregation of talent brings us on You Can Stay. Los Angeles’ Vindata, Alaskan sensation Electric Mantis, and British singer songwriter Liv Dawson come together on the celestial and ethereal future bass opus, whose twilight effervescence evokes Petit Biscuit and Odesza. We soar like night hawks across the sky to the surging swells of this beautifully crafted aria. It’s a wondrous and fantastical journey of the heart, bittersweet yet hopeful. You can also stream the song on Spotify, here.

We’ve said it countless times previously, but let’s all say it together again: Nevve is everywhere! The much-in-demand vocal talent lends her immaculate voice to yet another fine electronic tune, soaking 3LAU’s On My Own with her sweet and agile cooing. The Las Vegas producer has crafted a crisp and iridescent dance track to lift our spirits and enamor our hearts. We dance… whether on our own or with someone special is irrelevant. What matters is the warm contentment radiating throughout our heart thanks to this smooth pumping, honeyed soaring house gem. On My Own will be on 3LAU’s new album Ultraviolet, arriving this Friday February 16th. 3LAU is generously and kindly donating all profits from On My Own to F Cancer, too. Download/stream the track, here.

If you follow new music closely like we do here at IHM, then you probably know that there’s a ground breaking hip hop and trap movement in China right now that’s been so monumental that even authorities have been cracking down on it, banning tattoos and hip hop culture from television. One of our favorites at the forefront of this movement is Higher Brothers, and it is truly our belief that some of the best new hip hop is coming out of Asia right now. The group of gifted emcees, who’ve often collaborated with other rising stars from the Asian and Asian-American scene in the past, are absolutely riveting when they’re delivering their hard punching trap rap. Even though I’m thoroughly fluent in Mandarin, you can imagine how hard it is to catch every word in a rapid-fire lyrical flow when it’s delivered with the scathing bite and electrifying barbs of a project that takes after the likes of Migos and other American trap artists. I can’t wait to catch Higher Brothers when I hit Austin for SXSW in March, and I’m loving the High Brothers remixes that are starting to surface. Raise those trap hands and get ready to get down to this fresh remix of Higher Brothers’ wildly infectious Made In China by trap and bass maestro Y2K. It’s wonderfully filthy and gritty, jarring and needling. I’m sure Higher Brothers really appreciates this wicked take on their track, it’s right up their alley. Y2K’s mind jogging remix is a free download, here.

Yes, indeed, this one’s been out for a moment, but I’ve been enjoying Kid Froopy’s debut EP Drive Slow so much (including the rad remixes on the record) that I just have to throw it up for a share, too. You can check out the original version of Dreams, here. Its fluorescent pulsing electronica and fleecy soulful vocals get a mighty fine workover on Lil Texas’ remix. The Los Angeles based producer capitalizes on the original’s lush ambiance and gives it an energy boost on his percussive skittering, lavish simmering, yet elastic bounding edit. It’s a very fresh approach and an sumptuously intoxicating experience that befits the original’s title. I could dream forever to Lil Texas’ remix, as well as Kid Froopy’s original.
