Mysterious production twosome ATLiens has been thrilling fans with their heavy hitting trap and bass for awhile now, but they managed to evade our ever curious ears all this time. That all changes this week as we find ourselves caught in the intensely dramatic yet beautifully moving storm that is Interstellar, their latest original which features breathtaking indie vocalist Sara Skinner on singed and smoky vocals. Interstellar moves nimbly between extremes. Its hushed and delicate, tender and melancholic moments are a riveting contrast to its exultant pounding, triumphant marching build ups as well as its sharp jouncing, brain jarring trap drops. You can grab the spellbinding and commanding tour de force, here.

Our love affair with Canadian trap and bass trio Keys N Krates stretches back a very long time to the project’s inception. They’re without a doubt still a favorite of ours in this arena of hip hop and electronica, and our every experience with them live has been nothing short of exhilarating. The Juno award winning trio return with a finely nuanced, moody haunting new track named My Night, featuring New Jersey’s 070 Shake on guest vocals. It’s a fluid and mellow track compared to some of Keys N Krates’ past hits, but it’s just as powerful and moving a listen, taut yet pilose, cinematic yet twilight soothing. My Night will be on Keys N Krates long awaited debut album Cura, arriving February 2nd on Dim Mak. It’s been a long time coming for this devout Keys N Krates fan, but we don’t have too much longer to wait now. Stream/download My Night, here.

The galactic enchantment that is GG Magree featuring Frontlines, or Canadian legends Zeds Dead’s hot collaboration with buzzing production star NGHTMRE, goes panoramic technicolor on a breathtaking remix by HUXTER, a producer to watch from Denver, Colorado. While I often call electronic tracks “cinematic”, this one truly lives up to the adjective. It soars magnificently, a vast stirring future bass and trap affair. Just don’t forget to breath during its beautifully drawn out build up so you don’t pass out before it’s cathartic drop. I don’t know what it is about the Denver area, but the world’s best melodic bass seems to come from its great heights. You can download HUXTER’s remix for free, here. For one of his stunning originals, take sprawling trap opus Arrival for a spin below.
