If you’ve yet to encounter Pluko and have no idea how adept this rising producer is, I can assure you, you’re going to start seeing the name a whole lot more as the year continues to progress. The 17 year old Pittsburgh producer (what’s with the burgeoning Pittsburgh electronic scene?), will convince you of his talent in one remix. Get ready for dark swiveling synths and gorgeously rendered instrumentals on Pluko’s remix of Hayden James’ lush and sensual, limber and supple beauty, NUMB, featuring GRAACE. It’ll probably remind you of Flume and What So Not’s hit singles with the likes of Kai and George Maple, tracks that happen to be some of my favorite electronic tracks of this decade. But let’s not stop there, continue your electronic escapade by dissolving into the ambient beauty of Pluko’s original, her. If Explosions In The Sky ever went the future bass route, it might sound something like this immensely moving, breathtakingly profound piece.

UPDATE: In a sheepish moment of realization, I now know that Pluko is Pluto, who had to change his name for legal reasons. So yes, of course Pluko is talented, we love Pluto!

Los Angeles production artist William Black’s I Wish, which features SKYLR on chiffon vocals, is a dreamy beaut. The halcyon gliding electronic track feels like Stonefox and Ember Island, with a bit more atmospheric body and ethereal energy. For those that like their electronica with some extra oomph and a whole lot of epic feels, don’t miss out on this remix of I Wish by Vancouver’s tofû and Los Angeles’ Yetep. Their future bass edit of I Wish is a celestial delight and undeniably gorgeous. The two unite to give us a cathartic experience, like therapy for the heart and comfort for the soul. The breathtaking remix is a free download, here.
