STéLOUSE – Rockstar (Feat. Still Haze & Manus) (Post Malone)

STéLOUSE covers one of 2017’s biggest tracks “Rockstar” by the dynamic duo of Post Malone and 21 Savage in the style of Soundcloud in 2014; adding woozy synths and a new vocal track (Still Haze is an MVP here) in making over “Rockstar” into a great big sounding club winner.

Solstis – Take Me (Feat. Ally Ahern)

It’s nice when a song not only has great production, but an even greater message. “Take Me” (Feat. Ally Ahern) by Solstis is definitely one of those tracks. If you’re not familiar with these guys, they won the Discovery Project for Electric Forest in 2015 with their track “Forever In Silence.” I’m predicting big things for these Chicago natives, keep your eye out for them in the future.

VTCN Radio – Mydriase

After more than a year of silence, the French duo VTCN Radio finally released their debut album, Mydraise. It’s mood is mysterious and confidential, but it nonetheless delivers. I personally like how it’s not so in your face with an intense melody and love the chilled-out vibe. If you like downtempo electronic and dubstep, you’ll enjoy these slow, hypnotic tunes. Stream the title track below.

Giraffage – Green Tea (Feat. Angelica Bess)

I’ve been a longtime fan of Giraffage so when he came out with a new album, Too Real, I immediately streamed it. I was happy to see Giraffage move into a more poppy sound, without sounding over-commercialized. With tons of vocalists like Japanese Breakfast, Harrison Lipton, and Angelica Bess, his sound is definitely evolving. The track “Green Tea” (feat. Angelica Bess) is my personal favorite. If you’re familiar with the band Body Language, this track totally embodies that sound. Check it out!

Cherokee – End of Summer (Feat. Goto)

Ah yes, it’s 2017 and finally someone (the great Cherokee) has sampled the main riff (one of classic rock’s greatest) from the Eagles “I Can’t Tell You Why” and made a house track out of it. Listen to “End of Summer” below and check out of this photo of Don Henley with a perm.

TULPA & BLANKTS – Ten Missed Calls

Alternative Pop duo Tulpa and Blankts present the “Storytales” EP. A woozy 4 track project that features none other than gnash. What really makes their music stand out is Tulpa’s classical influence and production abilities that’s woven in tastefully throughout the whole project. It’s perfectly intricate and simplistic all at once. You can stream EP track “Ten Missed Calls” below and the full EP at Soundcloud

Four Tet – Daughter

Four Tet’s latest album is smoother than butter. The transitions are beautiful and as always, this guy delivers some major melodies. One track that especially stood out of me on his new release, New Energy is called “Daughter”. The repetitive beat creates a sense of cool collectiveness throughout the entirety of the track while the ebbing and flowing of the piano and vocals create some excitement. Head over to Spotify to stream it.

Sam Bruno – Hello Hater (WRLD Remix)

The Dutch future bass legend, WRLD, has delighted my ears with his recent remix of Sam Bruno’s “Hello Hater.” Playful vocals ride atop perky synths and bubbly percussion, creating a wondrous atmosphere reminiscent of a children’s picture book. If you’re looking for a fun, euphoric dance track to fuel this weekends adventures, you’re in the right place.

San Holo – I Still See Your Face

San Holo delivers his signature sound in his newest track entitled, “I Still See Your Face.” The sweet melody of this track has stayed stuck in my head for a few days. It’s emotional, fun, and quirky all at the same time. Check out this track, and catch him in your city during his upcoming world tour.
