Betty Who joining Lemaitre on a fresh and funky new tune is a dream come true. We’ve been fans of the Australian pop sensation for a very long time, and we love the new music she’s been releasing now that she’s gone back to an independent career, too. She lends that irresistible voice to Norwegian electronic project Lemaitre’s scintillating new song, Rocket Girl, which was co-written with DagnyWe fly across the universe with them, riding high on Lemaitre’s French house-styled electro, so rife with sumptuous funk guitar and juicy plump synths. Suddenly, I’m imagining Grimes dancing to Rocket Girl alongside Elon Musk as he launches one of his Falcon 9′s. Seems fitting, doesn’t it? Rocket Girl has been tapped as the theme song for X Games Norway, which kicked off yesterday. Lemaitre will be performing at Sasquatch on May 25 and Austin City Limits Festival in October. Stream/download Rocket Girl, here.

Nevve might be one of the most in demand female vocalists in the electronic scene these days! She seems to have collaborated with just about everyone. Nary a week goes by without a track featuring Nevve, and we’re overjoyed with her saccharine contribution to California producer Max Styler’s effervescent new original, too. “Heroes” they both are on their bubbly infectious future pop track, an aureate glowing, airy frolicking dalliance that exudes youthful energy. Stream/download Heroes, here.

I was already into I Hear You during its exuberant opening chords, which very much remind me of Junior Senior melded into Galantis. But this isn’t any Junior Senior re-visit or a Galantis tweak, this is an eruption of full on feel good summer dance revelry from Dutch production duo Vicetone. Their behemoth new electro house single is an effulgent burst of prismatic synths and high voltage chops, and it would come as no surprise if I Hear You became one of the big  dance hits of the summer. Snag the track via major retailers, here.

That’s right, kids, it’s yet another remix of K.Flay’s marvelous fierce single FML. Though I’ve already shared a very long list of incredible FML remixes, it’d be criminal not to share this new one, too. FML goes far darker and ominous on a jolting bouncy remix by Italian producer Phonat. This is easily one of the more unpredictable thrillers to come along in the spate of edits we’ve been enjoying. Phonat’s house and garage remix is edgy and fresh, an entrapping web of voluminous swells and sharply pointed snares. The serrated track is spine tingling, to say the least.

Naderi’s remix of trap wizards Keys N Krates’ Katy B featuring Save Me opens with near operatic and regal majesty, carrying a sweeping mystique that breaks open into gut wrenching, heart pounding percussion. The producer from Sydney has crafted an epic anthem, due for release October 2nd on Dim Mak as part of the Save Me Remixes EP. This is a theatrical, expansive future bass and trap interpretation of Keys N Krates’ filthier beats that combines perfectly with Katy B’s siren like voice.

Louisville based producer AMTRAC has filled our ears with such sweet music here on IHM for some time now. Be it remixes, collaborations, or solo originals, AMTRAC has never failed at giving us quality electronic tracks. But what has he been up to these past months of silence? Just making dope jams like this one, that’s all. Hold On, which samples Marvin Gaye’s Ain’t Nothing Like The Real Thing, is a buoyant and soulful work of infectious house magic. It exudes endless class along with its entrancingly deep bass and gracefully dashing piano. This might be one of the producer’s best yet. Hold On is available now on Beatport.

There’s always something glamorous about the tragedy of dying young, especially in the world of music and art. Australian producer GRMM captures that double edged beauty on sexy, radiant Die Young, which features slickly enrapturing vocals by the UK’s Wild Eyed Boy. Die Young is a euphoric blend of rich electro R&B and crisp, moving dance music. The luscious beauty is the title track from GRMM’s sure to be amazing debut EP, off which I’ve shared some terrific tunes already over the past year, featuring some great artists including Father Dude, Erin Marshall, and Yasmin. Pre-order the Die Young EP, here. It’s out September 25th via Of Leisure.

American electronic duo Ardency remixed some of my favorite songs like Phantogram’s Fall In Love and Kavinsky’s Nightcall, but now they captivate me with a fantastic original named Foxfire, a collaboration with California’s Patrick Zappia. Foxfire also features fervent vocals by indie rock singer songwriter John Tabler. Its neon synths, entrancing bass, and intricate arrangement remind me of some of Robert DeLong’s indie dance music. There’s an organic, animated quality to the sprightly song that has me easily picturing the track being played with all sorts of instruments and equipment on the spot. In fact, I already have a ludicrous itch to see them perform this song live. Foxfire is available now on iTunes.

I HEART MOOSIQ PREMIERE:

From sunny Santa Cruz comes a new retro synthpop producer who goes by the name Ozen. His love for the 80′s and 90′s shine distinctly bright on his debut song, Ozen Pass. It’s an effervescent electronic track with what he describes as “polyrhythmic patterns and reminiscent vibes”. While the glittering track carries a sugary glaze, there’s also a taut, ominous undertone that I’m uncontrollably drawn towards. In fact, Ozen Pass reminds me of certain soundtracks from the 80′s and early 90′s, in particular some of the sounds off Lynch’s Twin Peaks. Ozen skillfully blends that dual edged sound into a futuristic, glitchy style reminiscent of Odesza and other ethereal sounding contemporary electronic acts. The producer dedicates the song to hopeless romantics. I suppose love, with all its sugar and spice, is as double sided as this thrilling, mesmerizing song.

You should know by now that we can always trust Chicago duo The Hood Internet to drop the best mashups, the most surprising but seamless blends of indie and hip hop. But, you have to admit, they’ve really topped themselves with their latest, Still Letting It Happen, a slaying cocktail made from Usher, Migos, and… Tame Impala! I can play this jam over and over again and not be tired of it right now.
