One of the biggest knocks against electronic music has always been the lack of live instruments, but many artists, like Gryffin, are bucking the trend and proving that electronic music may be composed on a computer, but it still requires a high degree of musical talent. Since he released his debut original, “Heading Home,” earlier this year, Gryffin has been touring the world and showcasing his live show, which features the artist playing guitar, synths, drum pads, and singing at various points, further cementing his reputation as a talented musician. Now, Gryffin has unveiled the official acoustic version of “Heading Home” with Josef Salvat, and we can’t stop listening. Gryffin lays down a bed of beautiful, soaring piano chords that are perfectly complemented by Josef Salvat’s soulful croons for an emotional 3 minute video.

There’s no denying that Justin Jay is killing it. He’s already unveiled the first three parts of his debut album, and now, we’ve got a glimpse of the fourth courtesy of Lee Foss’ Repopulate Mars label. “Climbing Trees” has been making the rounds on the Internet for a while now, ever since Justin debuted it in his live sets on his “Fantastic Voyage” tour – and for good reason. The record is undeniably huge, as it expertly toes the line between dark, brooding warehouse heater and lighthearted summer jam. Josh Taylor’s airy vocals offer a noticeable counterpart to Benny Bridges’ heavy guitar licks and Justin’s expertly crafted basslines.

Over 20 years into his lengthy career, EDX is still managing to stay on top of his game with his evolving sound. Currently, his brand of house lies in the mellower regions of deep house, a progression from his driving progressive house that he was known for earlier in his career. In 2008, one of EDX’s biggest tunes was his remix of Dubfire’s “Roadkill,” and now, it’s seeing new light thanks to EDX’s brand new, “Ibiza Sunrise” remix of the track that is sure to dominate this summer. Check out the remix above.

Aash Mehta just dropped his newest mix, thanking fans for the support on his debut EP that we talked about here. From Aash himself, “Here’s a little thank you for all the love you’ve shown! I got a bit tired of the traditional summer mixes filled with tropical house or piano powered drops, so today, I decided to record my own!”. This mix takes you on a journey, blending genres from future-house, progressive-house, and even trap! Check out the mix now, and I have it on good authority to tell you there’s an unreleased ID from Aash hiding in there somewhere as well!

Aash Mehta. Remember that name because you’re going to be hearing a lot of it this summer. The young producer just dropped his debut EP, “Dreams Money Can’t Buy” and its fantastic. Exactly one year ago, after realizing the music he was making was more to satisfy a trend rather than something that came straight from the heart, Aash Mehta deleted every public trace of his old sound and created the concept of “Dreams Money Can’t Buy” – a collection of original productions filled with emotion, passion, and raw energy. EXACTLY one year later, “Dreams Money Can’t Buy”, along with its final single, “The Phoenix” is out! This EP is beautiful, but the best way to describe it is to listen to it. Check out “Dreams Money Can’t Buy” & “The Phoenix” now, and be sure to catch it on Spotify as well!
