Kainalu – Folds Like Origami

Kainalu’s consistent production shines through on his latest track, “Folds Like Origami.” After hitting number one on Hype Machine with his last track, “Finding Peace Of Mind,” my expectations were pretty high for his next single. Luckily, they were greatly exceeded. This track is bouncey, dancey, and perfect for chilling with friends.

Beach House – Lemon Glow

“Lemon Glow” by Beach House came out of nowhere. I’m a pretty big fan of these guys but I seriously had no idea a release was on their radar. But this isn’t the fist time Beach House has surprised us with music out of the blue, like that time they released Thank Your Lucky Stars at basically the same time as Depression Cherry. But this only adds to Beach House’s ethereal and authentic nature. What I love most about Beach House is that they stay true to their sound. “Lemon Glow” fits in nicely with the collection of tracks they’ve previously released, and I can’t wait to add it to my nighttime playlist.

Kali Uchis – After the Storm (Feat. Tyler, The Creator & Bootsy Collins)

If you’re looking for a track to take you on a silky smooth journey, look no further. When I first heard this track, I was entranced. I honestly stopped everything I was doing and just listened. Kali Uchis’ r&b styled vocals paired with funky, soulful rhythms and bass tracks builds the most beautiful duo.

Kailee Morgue – Unfortunate Soul

19 year old alternative pop singer Kailee Morgue has done it again. “Unfortunate Soul,” off her newest EP, Medusa, is definitely my fav. Morgue successfully navigates her way between clean guitar sounds and letting her hair down, pleading and shouting “I’m an unfortunate soul. It’s just the way that I roll.” And if that chorus doesn’t make you wanna embrace the teenage angsty girl inside you, I don’t know what will.

If that weren’t enough, when that bass line hits I’m swept into a dream state every time. Kick your feet up and bump this one at your earliest convenience.

Taska Black x DROELOE – Running Away (Feat. Cut)

Future electronic artists Taska Black and DROELOE team up for the track, “Running Away”, featuring CUT. I’ve been following DROELOE for a while now, and at this point, I expect nothing less than excellent from him; and boy does he deliver on this track. The dream team of Taska Black and DROELOE is an immaculate one. The two artists really compliment one another to create trap-bass hybrid bliss.

Unlike Pluto – Nothing Wrong With Me

Pluto is an electronic artist unlike anyone else else there right now. Seriously. This guy is breaks the mold of traditional EDM and forms a new path into a world of his own. “Nothing Wrong With Me” fuses the thoughts of your inner teenage angst with the support to be whoever you want to be. In a time when truly being yourself is more socially accepted than ever before, the theme of this track, and the vibe of this artist in general, is 100% topical.

Solstis – Take Me (Feat. Ally Ahern)

It’s nice when a song not only has great production, but an even greater message. “Take Me” (Feat. Ally Ahern) by Solstis is definitely one of those tracks. If you’re not familiar with these guys, they won the Discovery Project for Electric Forest in 2015 with their track “Forever In Silence.” I’m predicting big things for these Chicago natives, keep your eye out for them in the future.

VTCN Radio – Mydriase

After more than a year of silence, the French duo VTCN Radio finally released their debut album, Mydraise. It’s mood is mysterious and confidential, but it nonetheless delivers. I personally like how it’s not so in your face with an intense melody and love the chilled-out vibe. If you like downtempo electronic and dubstep, you’ll enjoy these slow, hypnotic tunes. Stream the title track below.

Giraffage – Green Tea (Feat. Angelica Bess)

I’ve been a longtime fan of Giraffage so when he came out with a new album, Too Real, I immediately streamed it. I was happy to see Giraffage move into a more poppy sound, without sounding over-commercialized. With tons of vocalists like Japanese Breakfast, Harrison Lipton, and Angelica Bess, his sound is definitely evolving. The track “Green Tea” (feat. Angelica Bess) is my personal favorite. If you’re familiar with the band Body Language, this track totally embodies that sound. Check it out!
