I apologize for making you wait for this share. After all, I’ve been astounded and awe-struck by mysterious newcomer ilo ilo’s wait for many days now. And I regret that it took me awhile to find the time to share the electronic debut, whose island luster, breezy steel pans, and nimble future beats remind me of Mura Masa and Cashmere Cat. It’s a heckuva first release from what I’m assuming is a much gifted producer, but please correct me if this is a group and not just one artist. All that’s listed on Soundcloud is a number I haven’t tried to dial yet (808.202.2690), and an instagram account you can check out, here. wait can also be streamed via Spotify, here.

I love sweet juicy cherries, and I love hanging at the beach, so I couldn’t help but be drawn to Cherry Beach’s name even before I listened to their debut single. Once I heard the new Los Angeles duo’s first song, Gravity, I had to wonder… Could this sonic experience be better than cherries and beaches, combined? Cherry Beach fuses future bass, deep house, and electro-pop flawlessly on the song, giving us a gravity defying, brisk bounding confection whose limber beats, supple vocals, and melodious chorus are irresistibly contagious. Cherry Beach’s debut can be streamed/downloaded, here.

Sweater Beats and Icona Pop together is a dream come true, particularly since it’s been so long since we heard from the Swedish electropop duo, plus we haven’t had a new tune from the Los Angeles electronic producer for awhile, either. Faded Away is a punchy biting, chipper romping track bursting with bubbly energy, with sheared synths and brittle, peppery beats. The youthful frolicking jam blends radiant elements and shadowy tones, and it comes with a fabulous music video whose retro animation is a wonderful throwback to classic video games. Faded Away is our new dance obsession. Get it, here.

Bazzi might very well be the most exciting new tycoon-in-the-making when it comes to hip hop/R&B soul, his buzz continues to grow with each new day as more and more fans gravitate towards songs like Gone and Mine. We’ve already shared Electric Mantis’ remix of Mine, and talked about how his songs are resonating with some incredible producers, considering the edits that are coming to light these days. Now, let’s soar into the sky on the the wings of Vancouver production duo Young Bombs’ interpretation of Mine, too. An iridescent combination of smooth future bass and melodic soaring trap infuses Mine with expansive warmth. Young Bombs states that Mine is one of their favorite tracks of the year, and they went through an emotional journey while creating their gorgeous remix, which can also be streamed via Spotify, here.

French producer Clément Bazin first lit up our radar as a guest on Fakear’s Lost In Time, alongside Noraa and Polo & Pan. Now he’s enthralled us with his own animated dance single, Catch Me, featuring Aaricia on arresting vocals. The opulent R&B and crisp rippling electro on Catch Me invites us into a magical world, taking us on a roseate bouncing flight of fancy. A fresh island breeze driven by steel pans courses

through the vivacious track. As Bazin himself says, “put your dancing shoes on!” Catch Me will be on Clément Bazin’s forthcoming album Everything Matters, out April 27th.

You can’t really fault me for being glad that Kill Paris never ended up changing his name, right? I mean, the inspiration behind it a few years ago was nothing but honorable and respectable, but I would never have gotten used to calling him anything else but Kill Paris. The long time production luminary has returned with a dreamy stirring, flushed and sentimental future bass aria named Made Of Time, featuring dewy vocals by fellow Californian Trove as well as misty aureate cooing by Emily Vaughn (both of whom contributed to writing the song, too). Made Of Time is a fleecy embrace, whose gentle lurches and sweetly melting ambiance can thaw the coldest of hearts. You can also stream Made Of Time via Spotify, here.

Honestly, who needs sleep? I mean, can’t we just listen to No Sleep all night long, instead of slumbering away those precious early morning hours? The Pittsburgh producer, who last linked up with swiftly ascending pop duo XUITCASECITY on Criminals, delivers mellifluous sonic bliss on Steady, which features mahogany vocals by a mysterious new songstress named Xxaia. Steady reminds me of a restless summer’s night. The air is warm and thick, and we’re yearning for someone special while feeling a whole lot of regret over that fight from earlier in the day. Hope creeps in as No Sleep’s gently prancing, heart-on-the-sleeve melodic house and future bass warms our hearts. Tomorrow’s another day, maybe nothing’s been broken and everything’s still steady.

A potently moving spectrum of electronica takes hold of us as we dive into All Day Long, a collaboration involving rising Chi-town producer SEPPIE and ear perking newcomer AERGØ. From fervent pounding progressive house to deep summery house, lush flickering melodic trap to wavy synthpop, this powerhouse anthem’s got it all. I could let it whisk me off my feet, “all day long”. It’s an uplifting and exhilarating aural experience, and it’s a free download, here.

Every Wave” of Flapo’s recent remix hits with electric elation. The producer from Miami has given Swedish duo Tundran a thoroughly intoxicating that bends the track to his whim and fancy. While the original is a dreamy synthwave and synthpop treat, Flapo has turned Every Wave on its head and changed its course with a fluid and smooth future beats styled dance edit that’s stunningly atmospheric. Those very “waves” meld into one another to create an oceanic effect. We ride its currents, toppling over its concave crests and dipping into its choppy furrows in inebriated bliss. The remix is a free download, here.

An icy spell hypnotizes us as we wade into the glassy beats and cool draft of Coldheart’s opening bars. Then dreamy pensive, fluidly gliding vocals sooth our fluttering hearts before urgent sawing synths raise the temperature sky high. Coldheart is a fresh and creative new electronic track from Chicago based producer and dummer Cofresi, who’s teamed up with touring Gorillaz vocalist Marcus Atom on the drum effusive, rhythmic entrancing, and explosively animated melodic trap opus. It’s the second single from Cofresi’s forthcoming FACES EP, arriving in March. You can catch the producer on tour through May with Autograf and at various other festivals and shows. Coldheart is available from iTunes, here.
