So I thought I was done for the night and would continue on my behemoth list of songs to feature tomorrow morning. That is, until Flight Facilities dropped their brand new song. Behold, All Your Love, which features Sydney’s Dustin Tebbutt on transcendental vocals. Not only am I (and most of my friends) ardent FF fans, but this song is phenomenal, so I had to hop back on for a prompt share. All Your Love is a drastic departure from Flight Facilities’ more disco grooving tracks of yore. Instead, it seems to lean towards a deep luscious, ambient pumping organic house tone reminiscent of RÜFÜS DU SOL or Elderbrook, both of whom I’m also huge fans of, so I’m a happy camper right now whilst I’m already on my fifth or sixth listen of All Your Love. Australian electronic duo Flight Facilities are in the midst of their Return Flight tour and now they’ve followed it up with this brilliant song. It’s turning into one fine 2018 for FF fans like me. All Your Love is a meditative and expansive song simultaneously intimate soothing and atmospheric sprawling. It wraps us up in its shimmering beats, comforting us and dispersing a calm tranquility from within its ever evolving fluidity. We sink into its beauty, finding inner peace in it despite all the chaos around us. Stream/purchase All Your Love, here. Find out about FF’s tour, here. We’re hoping a Bay Area date gets added soon.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I was super excited about this song even before I heard it. It’s so good to see a talented budding artist like Madge show up on such a behemoth collaboration. The LA based Salt Lake City newcomer blew our minds when she made her debut earlier this year on Fight Or Flight Club and we’re infinitely glad she’s been receiving a whole lot of well deserved attention since. And now, here she is, lending some feisty, spunky vocals to Kaskade, Brohug, and Mr. Tape’s aptly named Fun, a funky bass house groover. Throw your hands in the air and dance your heart out to the infectious punching banger. It’s steamy fierce, an inferno of a swag jam that reminds me of both NVDES and SOFI TUKKER, but with a bouncier step and a whole lot of zestful, gutsy spirit. Grab the track, here.

New Zealand’s BAYNK just dropped two fine new tunes the other day, and to miss out on any of those tracks would be nothing short of criminal. The producer enchants us with glossy sleek pop and dreamy burbling electronica on Be In Love. The sprightly prancing, elegantly rippling song is both entrancing and exhilarating, with eloquent keys and chiffon light vocals. In some ways, Be In Love is like Caribou and Sampha, encapsulated in a more subtle and silky soundscape. BAYNK’s new double-A side single also features exultant Years, a satin smooth electronic track that continues to spellbind us to the utmost. Stream Years below. Stream/download both tracks by way of major services, here.

Ever enigmatic production luminary ZHU dropped his new EP Ringos Desert Pt 1 last month, on which he continued to push the boundaries of house music and electronica. We were hoping the new release and the lack of a Bay Area tour date on his fall DUNE tour meant he would be announced as part of this year’s Treasure Island Music Festival lineup. Though we’re rather disappointed that this hasn’t happened, we’re also quite glad that ZHU has dropped a music video for slinky smoldering

Still Want U, his song with England’s Karnaval Blues. It’s the second track from Ringos Desert Pt 1, and a sparse misty, spacious burbling dose of deep humming, sensual simmering house hypnosis. Learn more about ZHU’s DUNE tour, here. We’re holding out hope that there’s still going to be an announcement about additional dates. Stream Ringos Desert Pt 1, here.

Three weeks have flown by since Couros alighted back on our radar with a song named Young. Though we’re still stuck on that scintillating effusion of electronica and R&B, we find ourselves thoroughly consumed by the London-based producer’s magnificent new song Undertone. His production is flawless on the lustrous swooning track, which features rich summer melodies and silky chord patterns. Wistful yet euphoric, Undertone swirls and swells with tactile warmth. Golden luscious Undertone is nothing short of spectacular, a bedazzling display of lavish electronica and sensuous R&B pop. Plus, singer songwriter Alyss’ sultry sleek crooning is outstanding. Undertone is taken from Couros’ upcoming 5-track EP on PMR Records.

We’ve had to wait two long years for a new single from Dead Ceremony, but All This Noise was worth every excruciating minute. The British synthpop band has shared a beautifully pellucid, diaphanous gliding aria as well as shared news of a fresh EP named ‘heartache’. All This Noise is a gently folding, ethereal crimping beauty with breathy aching vocals reminiscent of Hot Chip frontman Alexis Taylor. Dead Ceremony dyes their synthpop with pigments of house and R&B, executing it with meticulous grace. Flute-like island horns add another layer of breezy warmth to their transcendental song. All This Noise, for a sublime few minutes, is the only focused sound filtering through my ears. It cuts through all the turbulence and cacophony of life to give us a moment of wondrous tranquility. Dead Ceremony explains: “This song is about the revelation of falling out of love, and accepting that you have to end what you once thought was so certain. Finding the strength and clarity to ignore the fears, expectations, assumptions and advice that surround you, and focus instead on the truth that love is all that really matters and that everything else is just noise.” All This Noise can also be streamed via Spotify, here.
