21 Fridays into 2020 and we can’t wait for 2020 to end, as much as the year sucks – we’ve got some great music along the way! Be sure to check out the abundance of quality tunes this week below and for certain tracks, check out the full feature to learn and see more about that specific record!
deadmau5 & The Neptunes (Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo) – Pomegranate [mau5trap]
The track boasts a steady funk bounce that anchors an array of bright synths; it threads the needle between disco, R&B and festival-ready electro-pop. It’s also exactly the kind of instrumental perfectly suited for Pharell. The result is the ideal way for deadmau5 to come back into the commercial space.
Kaskade & Project 46 – Chains [Arkade]
Project 46 continue their return to the world, this time joining forces with good friend Kaskade for ‘Chains’. Like their previous track Last Chance’, this is a terrific progressive house record with amazing melodies. Fans will be very pleased with the result of their second collab!
Lane 8 – Keep On [Anjunadeep]
Lane 8 marks his return to Anjunadeep with ‘Keep On’. With both beautiful melodies and vocals, this is another extraordinary production from the American artist.
Oliver Heldens feat. Rowetta – Rave Machine [Toolroom]
Oliver Heldens debuts on Toolroom with ‘Rave Machine’. The vocals come from Rowetta’s 1990 track ‘Reach Out’, made famous after Steve Angello and Laidback Luke’s ‘Be’. Oliver Heldens brings a more underground approach to this track, making it perfect for Toolroom, rather than his own Heldeep imprint.
Destructo & Bruno Furlan feat. Dances With White Girls – Guest List [All My Friends]
Destructo and Bruno Furlan enlist Dances With White Girls for their debut collaboration. ‘Guest List’ is a gritty house heater that is sure to get you moving.
Blinders – Right Behind [STMPD]
Blinders take his unique main room sound to the next level with ‘Right Behind’, making it even more unique with a range of new and fresh sounds. This is definitely a track you either love or hate!
JYYE – Attraction [Thrive]
JYYE brings his talents to Thrive for once again another groovy masterpiece. With sexy male vocals and a killer rhythm throughout the production. This is another top track from the Melbournian!
Bad Computer – 2U [Monstercat]
Australia’s Bad Computer brings unique electro house style to the masses with his new one ‘2U’. With atmospheric melodies and a hard hitting drop, this is just like other Bad Computer releases: awesome.
Stadiumx – Be Yourself [Sub Religion]
For their second release on their brand imprint, Stadiumx opt for a dark and melody driven production, not the progressive house or future house we’ve come to expect. The track is pretty awesome, with a really great melody. Stadiumx know this melody is notable as they continue it throughout the entire production.
Tritonal feat. Brooke Williams – Someone To Love You [Enhanced]
‘Someone To Love You’, much like ‘Never Be The Same‘, combines elements of a radio hit with those of a club tune, imbued with their distinctive 2016 arpeggios and delicate chord progressions. Soaring vocals dominate the verses, leading to an impressive melody rising from the depths of its chord progression, taking charge with unbridled zeal in the drop.
Biometrix x EBEN x Lou – What I’m Fighting For
This collection of artists combine their forces for the stunning track that is ‘What I’m Fighting For’, with strong vocals and a melodic future bass production; this is an impressive track that you should listen to!
Will Sparks – Next Generation [Teamwrk]
Will switches things up, going for a melody and vocal driven record rather than his usual club banger. Being 7 years in the works, this is a terrific record and an amazing way to see a different side of the talented producer.
Disclosure – ENERGY [Island]
Joining forces again with Eric Thomas, Disclosure launch ENERGY accompanied by their news of their album, launching this August. With many new tracks in toe, we can’t wait for more Disclosure in our eardrums.
