Influential British dubstep and drum & bass duo Delta Heavy had a heavy hand in the development of my electronic music tastes. As such, I’m thrilled that the pair have dropped a heavy hitting new jam on Monstercat named I Need You that reminds me of their their earlier tracks. In particular, its laser cut synths, its mechanical vehemence, and its robust bass wobbles evoke Hold Me, which I still love to this day. I Need You is like a classic Delta Heavy track, and it’s as adrenaline pumping a tune as can be. You can find it on all major platforms, here.

After listening to the charming retro soul and swinging R&B of I Need You, it should come as no surprise that up and coming artist on the rise Jalen N’Gonda has already opened for the likes of Jamie Woon, Lauryn HIll, and Laura Mvula

. Just a few seconds in and I was already flush with excitement over the new artist. Jalen N’Gonda’s 60′s soul is like Otis Redding paired with Leon Bridges, with slivers of Danger Mouse project Gnarls Barkley sashaying through its brisk strokes. I Need You follows on the success of the Liverpool based talent’s early tracks like Holler (When You Call My Name) and Why I Try, which are approaching 1.5 million streams. A host of summer festivals in addition to Jalen’s first shows back in his native US have all been confirmed. A full EP will be arriving later this year. Jalen N’Gonda is one to watch, and we’re hoping we get to watch him live soon in a more intimate venue before he blows up, though no San Francisco date has been announced for his tour (yet).

Blake Robin, the Los Angeles based producer and musician we know as LUXXURY, serves up some luscious disco house on I Need You, which he calls a “smooth yet dance-able magic hour-tinged love song.” The track follows on the success of prior jams like Breathe (Again) and Feel The Night. A bittersweet undertone imbibes the smooth spiraling soiree, which sports a punchy bassline, frisky keys, and heavenly funk guitars. I Need You is just the slick shimmering dance bliss we need to spruce up our afternoon. You can purchase or stream the track via additional outlets, here.

Mau5trap just dropped the fifth volume of their We Are Friends compilation, and on it is this wicked sick track from French producer NEUS. I Need You is a dark visceral, metallic edged electro bass thriller featuring vocals by Sweden’s Victoria Dogan. I Need You heaves and lurches, sending intensive jolts of electricity straight through my cortex. Head over to iTunes to snag mau5trap’s latest compilation or cop each individual track on the release.

Electro soul meets psychedelic pop on Slowes’ I Need You. It’s a mellow swooning treat from this emerging Danish duo, who seem to fuse HONNE, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and Tame Impala on the slow simmering, soft shimmering number. I Need You swirls and hovers languidly in the air, reflecting the yearning and lonely aching of the heart that weigh most heavily during the latest hours of the night.

It’s been a year since Los Angeles duo Leitbur’s EP, The Moment That I Knew You, and they make a glorious return into my wide open arms with splendorous new song, I Need You. St. Lucia summery warmth and M83 dreaminess blend seamlessly into each other on the dreamy disco and 80′s synthpop romancer. I Need You is the first luxurious single from Leitbur’s upcoming full length, Antique Travelers, out May 6th. Watch the duo’s new music video for I Need You below. Order Antique Travelers now on Bandcamp and you can get a download of I Need You early.

The crystal clarity and emotive sheen of Karl Kling’s voice on new single I Need You, when paired with the softly bubbling synths on new single I Need You immediately reminded me of The Postal Service and Ben Gibbard. But I Need You also ventures into far more atmospheric and electronic territory, as if Karl Kling were bringing in a touch of his ex-RAC involvement and some Hot Chip falsettos tagged along, too. I Need You is airy and light, a pumping, shuffling delight. It’s quite the scintillating treat from the Portland artist, who’s now on tour with RAC, Big Data, and filous.

New on my map today is an amazing young producer named Mazde from Germany. Our Chance featuring Curt Jones is his latest jam, and it will appeal to people who love Flume and other future trap artists, namely, people like me. It’s a downtempo, laid back groove with copious hip hop beats, soulful vocals, and atmospheric synths. It’s a winning combo in my books. For more fantastic trap hop music by Mazde, check out his remix of Milky Chance’s Stolen Dance below, as well as his chill, skittering remix of Local Natives’ You And I. And if you weren’t convinced of his skills on original tunes from Our Chance (tsk tsk), I’ll also tack on the soulful I Need You feat. Bunny Sigler. Mmmm delicious.

While we’re on the topic of dreamy music, let’s turn to the ultimate maestro of soaring, cinematic, moving, dreamy electronic pop, Anthony Gonzalez and his band M83. As we move closer to the release date of mad buzzing Hollywood film Divergent, we’re getting to hear some choice cuts off the impressive soundtrack filled with a long list of I Heart Moosiq fave acts. I Need You, which debuted today on Buzzfeed, is M83’s brand new contribution, and it’s exactly what we want to hear from M83. Saxophone? Check. Cathartic, explosive, beautiful music? Check.
