Strap yourself in for a cosmic ride, because we’re about to dive into new k?d, the young wunderkind who’s taken us clear across the universe with his epic tracks in the past. New single Zero One fires on all pistons, quite literally, too. It’s a pneumatic rocket ship of a hard hitting, bass pounding vehicle, whose G-force acceleration will leave your pulse racing and your hands sweaty from the sheer exhilaration and seismic intensity of the spine-tingling expedition. Stream/download k?d’s heart-stopping bass house track, here.

If you haven’t heard of Left Boy yet, it’s high time you did, because this artist, described by some as an Austrian prodigy, just released his new album on Ferdinand on Warner, and it features amazing tunes like this one, KID. Left Boy is a highly successful musician across Europe, including Germany, France, and the Benelux region. As heard on KID, his lyrics are honest, his productions unique and stunning. Left Boy is a floridly crafted song, poignant yet lifting, anthemic and lilting. Hip hop, alt pop, and earthy rock fuse seamlessly, strung together with lush orchestral interludes and raw guitar strums. Unsurprisingly, KID has already garnered over 123K streams on Spotify and 44K views on YouTube since it surfaced. Left Boy wrote KID at a time when a friend sadly passed away. It’s nothing short of heartfelt. Six tracks from new album Ferdinand were made into a visually stunning mini-series, which you can watch on YouTube, here.

Whenever a new k?d track surfaces, I buckle in for a life changing ride. In the past couple of years, the once elusive artist has become one of my favorite producers. k?d floored us with remix after remix, original after original, proving himself a mainstay in the electronic scene while so many other producers’ work tends to fade quickly after making their initial impressions. My one experience seeing k?d live was also probably the most magnificent electronic show I attended last year. I can still feel my adrenaline pumping from that night at 1015. Now, k?d takes us on a whole new sojourn with Glass, a euphoric soaring anthem that takes us higher than higher than high. It’s a breathtakingly beautiful sonic elixir, or a soul searching aural expedition with k?d’s signature future bass and progressive house amalgam on glorious display. Glass is a free download, here.

Out of all the producers we fervently praise on IHM, k?d has been one of the most exciting newcomers to hit the scene this past year. From his cosmic and profound originals to jaw dropping remixes like his edit of Daft Punk’s Doin It Right, the young prodigy has left the dance music scene stunned with his natural talent. His sold out set at 1015 last month ago was certainly the most thrilling and satisfying electronic sets I’ve caught all year. k?d returns this week with a fresh new jam featuring hotly tipped rising Los Angeles artist Blair. If you’ve wondered what a Passion Pit and Porter Robinson collaboration might sound like, Distance is your answer. k?d offers up chromatic electro house, iridescent future bass, and infectious dance pop on the youthful bounding, brisk pulsing tune, which can also be streamed via Spotify, here.

k?d’s swift ascent to production stardom has met all of the expectations had taken root in us since we first heard of the enigmatic young artist well over a year ago and called him a “Florida newcomer”. He went on to stun the dance music scene with genius remixes like his still mind blowing edit of Daft Punk’s Doin It Right before dropping the most profoundly expansive and near philosophically moving originals. Fresh off his performance at EDC Las Vegas comes this new k?d masterpiece, a remix of The Weeknd’s hit collaboration with Daft Punk, Starboy. As always, k?d’s track is a starry eyed, blissful soaring composition. The lavish sweeping, airy surging electro house and future bass hybrid channels Daft Punk and Porter Robinson, all at once. I’m still waiting for catch k?d over here in San Francisco, and I have a feeling by the time I finally get to, he’s going to be selling out some massive venues. His new remix is a free download, here.

We’ve been extolling the virtues and genius of k?d for well over a year. In fact, we were convinced from the very beginning that this enigmatic young artist would ascend to the highest production ranks with his starry eyed compositions. Sure enough, his rise has been meteoric, and it shows no sign of stopping as k?d puts his musical savvy and visionary creativity on full display once again by offering us a fine new future beats anthem named glitch boy. k?d has the capability of rocketing us into a whole new universe with his fluorescent synths and choppy beats. Who needs to understand the theory of relativity, or a re-useable spaceship crafted by Elon Musk, or a theoretical wormhole, or a degree in astrophysics, when we have k?d to launch us into the great beyond? Take that trip over and over again by downloading glitch boy for free, here.

And here we go again, rocketing off on a fantastical and wondrous adventure alongside masked production prodigy k?d as he blows us away with another stunning original. Genesis is defined as the origin or source of something. I believe we have been witnessing the genesis of a legend when it comes to k?d, whose latest song is a propulsive display of what’s become the producer’s signature sound: whizzing synths, wobbling bass, wavy syncopating chords, and galactic cinematics. Download Genesis from Toneden, here, as we look forward to a massive year ahead for this adept “kid”.

It’s obvious that k?d is the man of the hour when it comes to electronic music these days. Each new remix and original that the incognito artist drops has set the world on fire, and his latest work of art is ready to do the exact same. IHM melodic bass favorite ILLENIUM gets the royal k?d treatment as his song It’s All On U, featuring Liam O’Donnell, goes cosmic splendorous in the producer’s hands. As always, we’re taken for a trip across the universe by k?d’s celestial dance edit. Dreamy pastels pair with chromatic ripples as future beats interweave with cascading electro. Snag k?d’s latest jaw dropping masterpiece for free, here.

Up north to Canada we go for a dance shoes necessitating pop punk meets dance rock beast. Fiery ferocious, glamorous twirling Taker is a massive jam from garage punk outfit K.I.D, a duo from Mississauga. The bold thrashing earworm takes firm hold of my ears and full control of my body with an abundance of boisterous attitude. I find myself invigorated by this feisty boost of energy, eager for more from the exciting project who plan to unleash an album early next year on Columbia. You can watch a lyric video for Taker below. Purchase or stream from other major services, here.

Innovative incognito production virtuoso k?d has already given us one of the year’s best remixes in the form of his edit of French duo Daft Punk’s Doin It Right (among so many other incredible remixes and originals), but it’s another French duo that he turns his attention to for his latest jaw dropping, face melting gift. This time around, he’s taken on Justice and their beloved hit We Are Your Friends, the pair’s tweak on Simian’s Never Be Alone from the mid-2000′s. While I’d normally say it takes an incredible amount of guts to remix such a classic anthem, I must remind you that we’re talking about k?d here, who seems to have the acumen and skills to do justice (ahem, pun intended) to any song in the universe with his creative re-imaginings. k?d is invincible these days. His version of We Are Your Friends is pure epicness, a rapid pounding burst of electronic fireworks. Now, I’m truly ready for the weekend. But I may end up daydreaming about seeing k?d live and dancing away at home to his spectacular jams instead. This heavy hitter may cause some neighborly complaints from below, but that’s an unmanageable issue in light of the brilliance that is k?d. Download this euphoric rattling, earth shaking, adrenaline pumping remix for free, here.
