After tense anticipation, San Holo’s EP Victory has finally arrived. The three track EP has been getting heightened accolades ever since ‘Victory’ was released on May 4th; a colorful and melodic tune that exhibits San Holo’s abilities to turn 8-bit sounds into incredibly complex compositions. The Netherland native have brewed a true listening experience with these three creations that show versatility in their experimental nature. And with multiple teasers and dynamic music videos for both the title track as well as ‘Hold Fast’, Victory is a multi-medium artistic adventure.

Future house is becoming a norm now and producers are really having to think outside the box to differentiate themselves from the pack. Bass house, a sub-genre of sorts, has been in the works to find its exact sound with producers like Jauz and Ghastly morphing dubstep and future house into a middle ground. After finding this track through the daily Soundcloud search, it seems that HI-Lo should be added to this list. His debut track, “Crank It Up,” shifts the balance of bass-driven house sounds towards the techier side of things and does not go light on how much bass it uses, which in this case is pretty stellar. You’re going to want to check this kid out as he has already been picked up by Diplo to release the track via Mad Decent on June 25th.

The Mysteryland USA headliners and heavyweight acts are quite possibly one of the most diverse lineup of electronic acts of any festival. From Adam Beyer to Madeon to Robin Schulz to Diplo, every genre under the son is represented, but if you look even closer at the “smaller” names, there is some serious talent grumbling on the smaller stages of the festival’s second year. On the Webster Hall Presents Boys + Girls stage, the names are all impressive, and to show off what that stage will be bringing on the Sunday of Mysteryland, Sweater Beats was brought on to give a taste of what fans can expect with the second volume of the festival’s ‘Music of Mystery’ mixtape series. A glitchy, ADHD-injected medley of future cuts, Sweater Beats mixes 65+ tracks in the small space of an hour masterfully and really demonstrates what will be happening when he takes his place behind the decks. Get your mind thrown for a whirl with the stream above and tickets for Mysteryland USA are available here.

This is Brazilian prodeucer Ruxell’s FNT premier, but with remixes like this one, it shouldn’t be the last time you hear his name. Ruxell has taken Alison Wonderland’s “Run” and made it his own refreshing song that’s definitely worth a listen. The original catchy vocals are still intact, as well as some of the same basic melodies, however Ruxell has added in his own bass part that transforms this into a future bass track that demands to be replayed. Throw on the headphones, check this one out, and then grab the free download below.

Ladies and gentlemen he is back. Grabbitz has time-after-time impressed the kid with the flawless production and the thoughtful construction of music that he has brought to the table. At this point anything ‘Grabbitz’ branded will sky rocket to the top. This remix to the already powerful original is so smooth, which is a weird term to use for someone who uses heavy bass crunches on repeat. Don’t sleep on this fat remix – grab it.

Get the fuck up. No seriously – turn up the sound and let the heavy waves of Grabbitz engulf you and spit you back out into a euphoric state of mastered electronic sound. Amidst rumours of a collaboration with Mau5trap head-honcho deadmau5, Nick Chiari shatters the musical playground with this riveting EP. It has energy, emotion, and melody; it’s got something for someone, somewhere, any time. Enjoy this musical milkshake.

Off the official OWSLA Carmada remix pack comes ‘Dr. Fresch’ with his genre busting remix of “Maybe”.
This progressively gets darker and teases you with what is to come after the drop. After the first breakdown as we approach the bridge; ‘Fresch’ mixes things up and goes into a slow melodic trap beat with 808 snares with a much softer synth. This unexpected beat change from the 4 on the floor house kicks to melodic trap, is the perfect way to gently move you on to another song…that is if you haven’t already hit replay.
