In the aftermath of MMW, the rate of incoming new electronic music has only increased. We've got big room bangers galore as ravers worldwide are preparing for the EDC's. TV Noise and Tommy Trash bring us the heaviest, glitchiest beats of the week, while Laidback Luke and D.O.D closely follow with stirring rhythms.
1. "The Little Death" Tommy Trash & Killagraham, Spinnin' Records
Amazing contrast between the soft, melodic buildup and the earth-rattling drop. It's dark and glitchy and I like it. Out now.
2. "Flashing Lights" Laidback Luke & D.O.D, Mixmash Records
Really excited to see this collaboration between mentor and apprentice. I can clearly hear signature sounds contributed by both producers to make this one glitchy, grooving tune. Out April 21st.
3. "Freedom" Marc One, Wormland Black Records
This Braveheart-inspired progressive track features a fiddle melody straight from the Highlands. The drop translates the memorable melody into a big room beat. Out on April 14th.
4. "SIGURE" Matisse & Sadko, Doorn Records
This production duo continues to impress. Named after a Japanese destroyer that was believed to be unsinkable, this tune lives up to its name, delivering a powerful bombardment of beats. Out now.
5. "Na Na" (Grand & Warren Remix) Trey Songz
New Jersey-native production duo Grand & Warren continue to crank out quality tracks, this time using Trey Songz' vocals to create a nice energy build. A catchy synth melody rides the drop, infused with a tribal drumline on the back end. Available as a free download via the Soundcloud stream below.
6. "Make Me Jump" Shelco Garcia & TEENWOLF, Mixmash Records
Garcia & TEENWOLF continue to collaborate with another banger on Mixmash. The buildup's pitch rises fast, feeling like a rollercoaster climb. Rapid-fire synths and insane amounts of bass fuel the drop. Out now.
7. "Sweet Surrender" Starkillers & Black Boots, Ultra Music
Starkillers teams up with unique electronic duo Black Boots, creating a moving progressive tune that starts with acoustic guitar and Mikey Francis' vocals before slowly building into an uplifting melodic drop. Out now.
8. "The Hold" TV Noise, Doorn Records
Already supported by the likes of Afrojack, Nicky Romero and Martin Garrix on their respective radio shows, this track has earned its seat at the big room table. The buildup is heavy-hitting, and just when you thought things couldn't get crazier, the insanely glitchy drop chops up the bass. Out now.
9. "Time For This" Anthony Pag, Leading Records
This Canadian DJ-producer has already received support from Morgan Page for this track. A big room tune at heart, the track starts softly and subtly before unleashing an edgy synth riff. Out now on Beatport, available on other stores April 28th.
10. "Hype" (Hunter Siegel Remix) Deorro & ZooFunktion, Dim Mak Records
This is my favorite of the official remixes of Deorro & ZooFunktion's rage-inducing "Hype." Keeping the signature vocal drop that unleashes chaos, the remix replaces vocoded synths with old school electro riffs. Out now.
