It’s officially Friday, March 1st, and where January seemed to drag on, February flew by, and now we’re here to celebrate the start of a new month with some bangin’ new jams to get things started off right. Whether they’re highly-anticipated from some massive names, or up-and-comers worthy of recognition, here’s my picks for some of the best new tracks released today that you need to hear. Here’s to a great rest of the month!
Sikdope – “Rave”
Polish DJ/producer Sikdope is coming in extra hot this month with Musical Freedom-backed new track “Rave.” The song lives up to its name; with fast-paced rhythm and classic synths, this track combines elements of techno and even hardstyle to become what is bound to be a “rave” staple, as it should be.
Above & Beyond & Armin van Buuren – “Show Me Love”
When these legendary kings of their genre come together for a track, you know it’s gonna be good. Beautiful piano interludes accent this brilliant new trance number, and a welcome distorted bass shines through in the drop. Keep an eye out for Armin to drop this later this month at Beyond Wonderland.
Shivaji – “Block to Block”
Australian rising star Shivaji is back with another new banger, “Block to Block.” The syncopated percussion and bouncing bass makes this track stand out from the crowd. This young Aussie has caught the ears of the likes of Bassnectar and NGHTMRE, and there’s no doubt this one will take off as well. Keep an eye on what this newcomer has to offer next.
Au5 feat. Danyka Nadeau – “Eden”
The dynamic duo of melodic bass mainstay Au5 and vocalist Danyka Nadeau are back once again for another beautiful track. This one kicks things up a notch with an unexpectedly fun and energetic drop, and Nadeau’s vocals are as wonderful as ever. When these two come together, they never disappoint, and this is no exception.
KSHMR & Yves V feat. Krewella – “No Regrets”
KSHMR & Yves V have teamed up with Krewella for this fun future bass number. Krewella’s first new track of 2019, the duo shows off their vocal and songwriting chops on this radio-ready jam. This is the perfect song to ring in the coming of Spring. Keep this in your playlists and drop it on your Spring break road trip.
ReauBeau & Eauki – “Cut You Loose”
ReauBeau is arguably one of hottest new producers in the game right now. UKF, Run The Trap, Trap City, Spinnin’ Records, and more have all caught on, and you should too. Hot off the release of his latest “CTRL” EP, This new single with young newbie Eauki is a major vibe. It combines future bass and trap coupled with a catchy vocal hook that will have this stuck in your head for days. Catch ReauBeau playing Run The Trap’s SXSW showcase on March 13, and don’t sleep on this guy.
WICKD – “Givin’ Up”
WICKD have been catching fire recently with tracks backed by labels such as Gemstone/Revealed Recordings and Artist Intelligence Agency, and their newest track “Givin’ Up” is bound to heat up the charts. The progressive house banger is as danceable as it gets, and that’s what makes these guys’ music so much fun to listen to. I’m dying to hear this live and dance my little heart out.
Oski – “In Check”
I couldn’t finish this list without a little down n’ dirty bass for ya. Here’s Oski with his new one, “In Check.” Already a force to be reckoned with in the bass scene, Oski has scene a meteoric rise in popularity, due in part to his brilliant sound design and a knack for out-of-the-box compositions. On “In Check”, he solidifies this reputation with a drop that is the very definition of grimey. Turn up the volume on this one.
