Emmit Fenn’s Modern Flame is a heart pummeling, emotionally charged post-EDM opus featuring beloved Malaysian artist Yuna. In fact, it’s so emotionally charged that it quivers, trembles, and palpitates under the weight of all that heartbreak and anguish. OWSLA signed Los Angeles based producer Team EZY takes Modern Flame in a whole new direction with a fresh edit that infuses the song with a whole lot of throbbing energy and weightless shudders. Though poignancy is still omnipresent in the remix’s bedrock, our hearts feel liberated by its swift clattering beats and draftier vocals. We move forward. We dance like there’s no tomorrow, come what may, hell or high water, wounded heart or aching regrets. Download Team EZY’s remix for free, here.

Yes, I know I just finished lauding Emmit Fenn’s debut EP Prologue but a few short minutes ago, but this week has also brought us this amazing remix of EP track Modern Flame, which features Yuna, and we simply can’t let another day go by without sharing the track. Salt Lake City’s Fransis Derelle goes full on epic future bass and climactic trap on us with this electrifying and intense transformation. The sonorous remix is a free download, here.

Please excuse my humble brag for a moment, but I can’t help but feel some semblance of pride when it comes to my fondness for LA based producer and DJ TOKiMONSTA. I was so taken in by her music back in 2012 that I helped crowdfund her first ever music video, which was for early single Darkest Dim, featuring disco diva Gavin Turek on vocals. I’m elated that Jennifer Lee’s career has taken off since, and she’s given us an immense array of music over the past several years, showcasing an astonishing dexterity and versatility in the process. TOKiMONSTA has collaborated with a myriad of talent during that journey, and she now adds to that list an ethereal charging aria with Yuna named Don’t Call Me. The Malaysian star delivers cool soulful vocals over a byzantine hip hop and future beats soundscape which TOKiMONSTA has saturated with an immense amount of moody texture and edgy percussion. Don’t Call Me is sensually captivating yet darkly ominous in a way that reminds me of Flume, but with a glassy shimmering finish that feels like signature TOKiMONSTA. Don’t Call Me is out now via Young Art Records.

Vancouver based producer tofû, aside from possibly loving soy based products even more than I do, has proven himself an electronic maestro in the past months with his phenomenal remixes and flips. The latest such jam he’s blessed upon our ears is a cinematic remix of 21 year old wunderkind Emmit Fenn’s Yuna collaboration, Modern Flame. It’s impossible not to love this future bass flickering, intense surging re-work, the perfect treatment to go with Yuna and Emmit Fenn’s enthralling vocals. For more of his recent brilliant remix feats, stream his edit of Katelyn Tarver’s You Don’t Know and his Future Mask Off flip below.

One of my favorite tracks off Big Wild’s Invincible EP is the California producer’s snazzy soulful track Empty Room, featuring none other than much beloved Malaysian singer songwriter Yuna. Chicago production whizzes Win and Woo have given Empty Room a spectacular remix. On full display are the pair’s resourcefulness and dexterity as they welcome us into a fully resonant ‘room’ with their sonorous humming future bass and deep house hybrid. Win and Woo’s brilliant new track is unexpectedly but delectably dark, a bottomless chasm we never want to climb out of. In this thrilling space, every beat, every tremor, and every drop reverberates through our bodies, urging us to dance as if we’re pushed up next to a ginormous sub on a packed dance floor. Grab Win and Woo’s epic remix from major outlets, here.

Much beloved and adored Malaysian singer songwriter Yuna has kept busy lending her soulful voice to some phenomenal songs as of late. Aside from Big Wild’s Empty Room, she’s also delivered beautiful vocals on Emmit Fenn’s new song, Modern Flame. This conjoining is shiver inducing good and heartrendingly divine. Though Emmit Fenn has only released two prior tracks, the Berkeley native has become one of the scene’s massively buzzing and quickly rising stars. Modern Flame comes on the heels of successful singles Painting Greys and Blinded. With it, Emmit continues to twist and pull at our hearts with emotionally charged electronic grandeur. This is the sort of powerfully moving post-EDM that we sometimes get from other talented musicians like Crywolf and EDEN, but Emmit Fenn’s sound is steeped in more heavily in silky soulfulness, amplified by Yuna’s in this case by dulcet vocals. Modern Flame is out now on iTunes.

California producer Big Wild dropped an epic five track EP on Friday named Invincible via Foreign Family Collective, and out of the tracks we haven’t extolled already in recent months comes a snazzy soulful dazzler named Empty Room that features Malaysian singer songwriter Yuna on guest vocals. There’s no emptiness to be found here. Empty Room is a lavish and ravishing tune with hearty synths, robust beats, and a whole lot of aplomb. The future electro quivering track and the rest of Big Wild’s Invicible EP arrive ahead of an Invicible Tour set to begin in Vancouver on March 16th. Big Wild will be bringing his big sound to San Francisco on March 24th at the Regency Ballroom. Find out more about the tour, here. Stream the Invincible EP in full on Soundcloud or purchase/stream via other services, here.

I was much surprised to see a song surface from Los Angeles’ Lincoln Jesser that features Malaysian soul and R&B pop artist Yuna on guest vocals. I’d never imagined the two would link up, but what a delight it is that they have, because Baby Boy is a wildly infectious and vibrant indie electronic gem. Lincoln Jesser goes deep and lavish on the radiant house flavored treat, while Yuna delivers her ever beautiful and earthy vocals. Baby Boy is available from various outlets, here.

Yuna – Lights + Camera (feat. G-Eazy)

Yet another musician I’m very glad to say has been garnering a growing fan base this past while is Malaysia’s Yuna. While she’s featured on Adventure Club’s Gold, her solo music is very soulful and pretty. It’s been awhile since I’ve featured Yuna, but her new remixed version of Lights and Camera is quite fantastic. It features rap vocals by Oakland’s G-Eazy, who’s also a rising star himself, selling out huge venues of late. The original Lights and Camera is off Yuna’s album Nocturnal, available now on Verve Records. Yuna will be playing San Francisco’s Mezzanine and Los Angeles’s The Fonda at the end of December.
