1. Theophilus London – Stay
After a two year hiatus, it’s good to hear a new Theophilus track — and there’s a full album coming! Pretty sure that’s Kid Cudi’s luscious voice on the chorus, always a good addition. A simple tune, very summery, very New York, and you’ll definitely be hearing it again.
2. Pearson Sound – XLB
Someone is having fun with their synthesizers! Loving the way this new tune rolls through its different phases. And that drop smack in the middle opens up the track into a club banger. Really unique stuff.
3. Boys Noize – Rock The Bells
Boys Noize just dropped a new album, Mayday, and surprise, it’s excellent. He continues to do weird new shit, stretching out in every direction like a funky octopus, touching tentacles to every style of music. No one sounds like Boys Noize and I love his commitment to that. This is a fun track, I loooooove the drop.
4. Gramatik – Bluestep
Can’t really say enough about the quality of stuff Gramatik has been putting out for the few years. This is an old one but I had to stick in there. Can’t have summertime without Gramatik.
5. Jon Phonics – Nagasaki VIP
Few things are better than that minimal trap that hits hard affff.
6. Cirez D – Century of the Mouse
Eric Prydz just released two new tracks on his techno alias Cirez D — always a source of hard-hitting tunes. It’s the progressive Prydz we know and love, just a little darker and a little less PLUR.
7. Tenant – Run Run Devices
Listen to this on headphones.
8. Ashworth – Lost (Matt Karmil Remix)
Matt Karmil has such an interesting touch, his productions always have some unique quality that I can’t quite put my finger on. This is one to get lost in, for sure.
9. FFX – Promnite (Star Slinger Remix)
The perfect laid-back summer tune.
10. Flamingosis – Believe In Me
Pure vibes ✌️
