Young Ramzoid is a fast rising name in the production scene, having worked with the likes of Gramatik and having turned in sensational remixes of Louis The Child, Post Malone, and Flume in the past. It’s the latter future bass pioneer that I’m reminded of on BCW, the Canadian producer’s exhilarating new future bass and chill trap original. HIs intensely churning soundscape leads us into precipitous drops and gritty abysses, replete with craggy texture and unpredictable twists. Ramzoid states that BCW (Boy Cry Wolf) was a year in the making, and he’s glad it’s finally out on Next Wave Records. We’re glad too, and that’s an understatement. You can also stream BCW via Spotify, here.

I really hope I get to meet Lil Hank someday. Not only is he the most handsome little pup on earth, but he’s a fine little “music maker”, too. Lil Hank is practically Next Wave Records’ beloved mascot, and he’s such great pals with so many other stellar music purveyors. Lil Hank made a dreamy sublime remix for his uncle, Jai Wolf, the other day. Float into sweet oblivion on the canine wonder’s fleecy remix of Mr Gabriel featuring Starlight. Lil Hank’s cosmic beams of starlight stay close to Jai Wolf’s luminescent original, affording us a new opportunity to dissolve into the esteemed producer’s soothing future aria. Lil Hank says (or barks and woofs) that his edit was going to be an official remix on Spotify/Apple, but he accidentally pooped all over the car on the way back from EDC this year. Accidents happen, it’s all good, Lil Hank. Thanks for letting us partake in your heavenly rendition of Starlight, anyway. Stream the original below, which is out now on Mom + Pop, here

Next Wave Records is on point again delivering the crème de la crème with the release of SYRE’s Next To Me. The rising talent from Vancouver sends us to cloud nine with his tranquil lifting, airy lulling single. Not only does it feel like we’re right “next to him” when lost in the velvety drapes of this song, but it feels like SYRE’s all around us. We dissolve into Next To Me’s woolly warm vocals as we dive into its fleecy atmospheric production. Next To Me, out now on iTunes, comes with a music video whose open desert roads and futuristic scenery are fine companions to the song’s celestial beauty and sprawling ambiance. Watch the video on Facebook, here.

Montreal based electronic dazzler Robotaki is back with a jewel of a new original in the form of Drunk, which features R&B soul talent REECE on buttery sleek vocals. I’ve been waiting to hear this all week after Next Wave Records teased us with news of the track in the days leading up to its release. Far from disappointing Drunk is a deeply atmospheric, emotive haunting future bass opus. Robotaki explains that Drunk isn’t a happy song. “It’s about that relationship you shouldn’t be in but it’s too hard to leave. It’s about that person you know you shouldn’t forgive but you always do anyways.” Though it’s been awhile since I’ve been in that sort of situation, Robotaki brings all the poignancy of it right back with this opulent brooding, vividly intense beauty. Drunk, out now on esteemed label Next Wave, can also be streamed via Soundcloud below.

Next Wave Records, always keen on presenting us only the best of the best, has unveiled the very first track from Kidwaste’s forthcoming EP, and it’s a beauty to behold. More Colors, which features Chelsea Cutler on delicately captivating, feathery gliding vocals, is one of the year’s most breathtaking electronic arias. The French producer has fashioned an ambient and ethereal dreamscape that walks a fine line between future beats and indie. More Colors is a gently pulling current whose chromatic sparkles and tender intimacy renders heaven and earth inseparable. I find myself filled with wonder, but at the same time, I’m reminded of how small I am, and how minuscule my worries are in light of all that exists. Kidswaste’s first taste from his Spleen EP is nothing short of a breathtaking experience. Purchase the single from iTunes as we await Spleen’s arrival on February 24th.

It’s been seven plus months since Bearson’s last original, a smashing hit that I’m still head over heels for today named Want You. The Norwegian artist and Next Wave Records co-founder is undoubtedly a favorite rising star on my list of producers to watch. As such, I’ve been eagerly awaiting his next song. After the prolonged absence, Bearson makes his return in dashing style with One Step At A Time, a juicy succulent, lithe springing ballad that features soulful alluring vocals by Natalola, an artist we last heard on Exit Friendzone and Two Friends’ Overdose. One Step At A Time is balmy lush and frisky effervescent. The summer sparkling, honey coated enchanter can be purchased or streamed at various channels, here.

Young Los Angeles talent Billie Eilish cast a spell upon the world with songs like Ocean Eyes and Six Feet Under earlier this year, quickly springing up to be one of the most beloved watched pop starlets of the moment. As a result, many brilliant producers have expressed their love of her music through various interpretations of said songs. There are perhaps none as more intriguing and unique to date as Jerry Folk’s remix of Six Feet Under. The Norwegian producer gives the melancholic ballad a ghostly echoing, synth oscillating downtempo edit, one I find darkly gripping and beautifully breathtaking. Jerry Folk’s remix of Six Feet Under is his first in awhile after having focused on his stunning originals this past year, but what a way to make a return to the editing spectrum this is.

Norway’s Jerry Folk continues to fire off one after another incredible electronic jams, leaving in me a deep craving for another wild night out dancing with a sweaty crowd to his live set. Though I can’t stop thinking of the memorable night when he viciously and vivaciously slayed Popscene in San Francisco, he turns down a notch with a dusky slow burner tonight. Life Under Water, which features ravishing vocals by seemingly omnipresent Los Angeles talent Nevve, is a spacious pumping future bass and jazzy soul cut that warbles and lingers long in the air. From atmospheric cliffs we’re taken to delicate, tender valleys, then propelled back up to the apex. It’s a cinematic journey, full of sentimental vitality. If this is what life submerged in water is like, then sign me right up. Life Under Water is available now from iTunes via Next Wave Records.

It’s been over a month since Norwegian producer Jerry Folk made his San Francisco debut at Popscene, but the strength of that magnificent set still resonates strong in the air. An adrenaline rush kicks in and I feel my heart pumping faster just reminiscing about that night and the way Jerry lit up the crowd with his music. Jerry Folk’s fresh new jam Stanley, which features guests Tommellie & WoodzSTHLM, is a vivid melodic, chill wavy masterpiece that transports me back to the thick of that evening. Stanley feels like an epic story, and it tells a tale that feels very familiar. In the midst of its meditative future beats and funky flourishes lie searing memories of your own past, metaphysical photographs stowed away in the heart that bubble to the surface at the beckoning of Jerry Folk’s deeply reflective summery dance jam. It overcomes us with a wave of blissful nostalgia. Stanley can be downloaded for free over at Toneden.
