I’m pretty picky with EDM tracks- I love electronic music, but I tend to lean towards slower electronic music that produces itself as an eclectic blend of hip-hop, disco, and/or indie influence. However, once in a while, a good EDM track bares its head, and theres nothing like a good EDM track to get you in the mood for a dope night out. Forever topped hypemachine charts for 2 weeks straight, and for pretty good reason. Enjoy!

 

Let’s break this posting drought with this absolute jam. As always, I’m a sucker for anything with horns, and there’s some interesting percussion in there too. The track sounds like something from Louis the Child without all the synth, but it’s coming at us from Chicago-native Whethan. Of the 6 tracks he’s posted to Soundcloud since his debut 8 months ago, 4 of them have over 1 millon plays- in other words, he’s producing quality tracks from the get-go, and from the sound of “Can’t Hide,” it’ll be his biggest track yet. Just when you thought summer was coming to a close, we got this- and it’s a beaut.

 

BANKS. She’s back ladies and gents. She’s back, we have a full album coming our way on September 30th, and she’s already begun teasing it with her first two singles “Fuck with Myself” and “Gemini Feeds”, both of which are fuckin bangin’. Take one look at the video of “Fuck with Myself” and you’ll realize that BANKS has decided on a direction on this album, and its dark. Its grungier, its harsher, it’s creepier, and it’s fucking thrilling. In “Fuck with Myself”, there’s a deep slamming drum throughout the back of the track, setting the intense, heart-thumping mood. She’s sending a message, and it’s letting us know that she’s not messing around. Oh, and if you think you recognize the synthy electronic on this track, you do: it’s the ever-talented London-native , SOHN.
