This week in new electronic music, I give you the last electro/progressive house chart before Ultra. Some of this week's picks are guaranteed to be heard in Miami this weekend, while others are deeper finds designed to keep you informed on up and comers that you might hear at festivals in the future.
1. "The Buzz" New World Sound & Timmy Trumpet, Doorn Records
Massive Melbourne bounce track, complete with blaring trumpets and an old-school swing sound. Out April 14th.
2. "Dear Life" Dannic feat. Bright Lights, Revealed Recordings
You will hear this in Hardwell's set in Ultra, I'm calling it now. Dannic brings down the energy a few clicks from his last track to bring us an uplifting melodic tune featuring inspiring vocals by Bright Lights. Out March 31st.
3. "Pharaoh" Jewelz & Scott Sparks, Revealed Recordings
Another tune guaranteed to be heard at Ultra. Ancient melodic synths transport you to the Pharaoh's throne, which is made of glitchy electro riffs. Out now.
4. "Omen" Emanuel Kosh & Timofey feat. Gabriel, Sugar Faktory
Love the vocals and the vocoded synths that carry the essence of Gabriel's voice through the beat. Out now.
5. "The Launch" (D.O.D Official Remix) DJ Jean, Dizplay Recordings
This 1999 club classic gets an epic big room rework by ultra-talented producer D.O.D, who continues to pump out bangers with intricate rhythmic synths. Out April 14th.
6. "Where's My Money?" Gregori Klosman, GURU Recordings
Here's one for my fellow Breaking Bad fans. Klosman weaves a funky intro and employs Jesse Pinkman to introduce the grinding beat. Out April 7th.
7. "Krank" Karanda, Enhanced Recordings
An uplifting buildup prepares you for a tribal drop accentuated by unique synths. Out now.
8. "Double Down" Spencer Brown, LE7ELS Records
A new name to Avicii's label LE7ELS, Brown brings us a chilled out, progressive track. File this under Ultra Miami afterparty tunes. Out April 4th.
9. "Satellites" (Qulinez Remix) Cash Cash, Big Beat Records
This is my favorite track on Cash Cash's new EP Lightning. Qulinez beautifully matches the uplifting vibe of the vocals. The drop is catchy, melodic, and features subtle vocal cues. Out now.
10. "Memphis" Frederick Abas, Pyro Records
Dutch producer Abas brings us a high-energy hands-in-the-air track just in time for warmer weather. Out April 21st.
