Roger Sanchez – ‘Release Yo’Self (Solardo Remix)’

David Forbes – ‘Isolate’

Judging by the previous offering ‘Equator’ as well as this new WAO138?! banger, David Forbes sure knows how to throw down. From the supercharged bassline to the anthemic melody to the inevitably colossal beat drop, ‘Isolate’ comes with a serious amount of dance floor destruction.

Lupa – ‘Insatiable’

“I was once asked what motivates me to create music and at the time I had no idea how to answer it. I love the music for the sake of art itself, but there was something else deep inside that pushed me even further. When I’m not working on music or art, I’m thinking about it constantly and it’s usually my first waking thought. The only thing I have is this relentless motivation for self expression and it’s the only thing I need. This EP represents that fierce, undefinable feeling in my gut, an ‘Insatiable’ hunger.”

Elephante is on the prowl for his next fix on euphoric, hypnotizing new single ‘Dopamine’. Returning to his energetic House roots, Elephante weaves layered synths and floating vocals to create the pulsating track. Despite the risks, Elephante looks to quench his thirst for escape and pleasure.

With the bass music scene flourishing, I wanted to showcase the sounds that are inspiring me right now.”
