Nitepunk – “Miracle” (Reaper Remix)
Nitepunk enlists the shadowy enigma REAPER to go bonkers on his latest single “Miracle”. The massive track gets sanctified by Reaper who has been reconfiguring the drum & bass formula with a rage-filled vehemence.

ford. – “The Color Of Nothing” (Reprise)
Grammy-nominated producer and live performer ford. has dropped “The Color of Nothing (Reprise)“, a companion package for his 2020 sophomore album “The Color Of Nothing“. Regarding the album, ford. said “With this project I wanted to create an experience that could genuinely bring the listener further into the world of “The Color of Nothing.” More often than not deluxe albums can feel a bit contrived. When conceiving the Reprise I tried to constantly take a unique approach which ultimately led to me reworking some demos that didn’t make the album, stripping back some tracks from the album which I felt deserved a softer take, & reaching out to my friends who are artists for remixes. It’s my hope that this has led to a package which feels intimate and something listeners enjoy putting on front to back.”
H3000 – “Running”
H3000, the new musical project from Luke Steele (Empire Of The Sun) and Jarrad Rogers (Charli XCX, Lana Del Rey), release their new single and video “Running”. They also announce their upcoming self-titled album in September. “Running” reveals the darker side of H3000’s work. Transportive and strange, it sees Steele reflecting on the loss of a friend — and the internal strength that builds in the wake of a tragedy — over Rogers’ gossamer, awe-inspiring production. Debut album “H3000” contains songs of love, loss, and camaraderie that channel tragedy into brilliant, affirming hope. Check out the video HERE.
Ekonovah – “Floating”

This release was inspired by a transitional period in Ekonovah’s songwriting that shifted during quarantine; instead of making heavy bass music for the club, the producer focused on more personal and melodic sounds.
