The Knife’s Heartbeats will forever hold a very special place in my heart. It’s probably one of my all time favorite songs, and I can’t help but love some of the many covers of the track have surfaced in the past sixteen years, too. Autolaser, the prestigious producer who’s worked with the likes of Far East Movement, Yelawolf, Bone Thugs ‘N’ Harmony, and many more esteemed artists in the past, offers up his own re-imagining of the timeless classic. Oslo’s Ester Adele turns in celestial vocals on the glacial glimmering electronic approach on Heartbeats, a dreamy trickling beauty that opens up into a verdant wonderland of skipping beats and lush synths. It feels like we’ve traveled through a magical fantasy land with Autolaser and Ester Adele. It’s an ephemeral journey, but we get to take the ride over and over again by diving back into the exquisite future beats meets indie dance cover, whose ethereal effervescent and cosmic wonder are like M83 gone Odesza.

Something that’s monochrome is usually a little drab and dull from lack of color, but this Monochrome is one scintillating and coruscant electronic beauty. It comes from Los Angeles based producer Daktyl, who’s enlisted singer songwriter MOONZz on gorgeous guest vocals for his song. Monochrome is about self discovery, existentialism, and identity. Explore your own self by delving deep into this twilight glistening, celestial shimmering electronic aria, out now on Counter Records. Stream/download, here.

It’s no secret that I harbor a deep love for British project RITUAL and their dark haunting, poignant stirring compositions, and that my reverence for them has only grown stronger since singer songwriter Mononoke joined their ranks with her beautiful voice in tow. I also can’t help but gravitate to this new remix of RITUAL’s Real Feels, their recent collaboration with US rapper Denzel Curry. Illinois based fast rising rapper Kweku Collins contributes a pensive rousing verse to the gossamer skittering experience. The original comes from of RITUAL’s ongoing audio visual project No Escape Out Of Time release. You can stream the project on Soundcloud, here.
