The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed.
Jay Hardway & The Him put together a musical puzzle on “Jigsaw,” a new single that embodies summer in its sound.
CID and Greg Bahary percussively rework The Flying Lizards’ 1979 hit single, “Money.”
Flosstradamus‘ new single is a noticeable departure from the trap conventions that have come to characterize a ‘Floss’ release — but make no mistake, the track goes hard.
Twinkling synth work makes for a lighthearted listening experience in Duskus‘ latest, “Find You.”
Davina Moss’ “One Party” takes a sonic step back in time, joining 80’s-esque sound with a pulsating house beat.
The title says it all. Paper Diamond and Ms. Williams offer a no holds barred, no bass withheld take on “Bass Real Big,” a bumping number best enjoyed at a high volume. Sorry, neighbors.
Lemaitre and Jerry Folk toe indie territory on their slow jam, “Control.”
Aussie duo Bad Decisions makes one particularly phenomenal decision: releasing their new single, “Too High.” The product of cross genre constructs, “Too High” entwines hip hop and future bass tones.
Taska Black and Ayelle follow their previous emotive collab, “Dead Inside” with a downtempo new single, “In Your Eyes.”
If music is considered “Therapy,” then consider Armin van Buuren your therapist. A progressive production that soothes as it stimulates, “Therapy” enlists James Newman as its featured vocalist.
Listeners looking to luxuriate in lush synths need not look any further than Anki and October Child’s NEAVV feature, “All Or Nothing.”
Featuring Anthony Mills, Dada Life‘s vocally centered new single, “Sunday F**ck You Too,” will make fans of the Swedish DJ duo go ‘bananas,” while dispelling the Sunday scares.
