Afrojack x Steve Aoki – ‘No Beef (Remixes Part 2)’

Eleven years ago, electro house and EDM were going through an impressive rise to fame, quickly becoming the most dominant music genres in the world. Both Afrojack and Steve Aoki were riding this wave with a series of global hit productions, and their collab single ‘No Beef’ quickly turned into a powerful anthem for the emerging dance music culture. This track was taken on by several great artists in Part 1 of the remixes. And now, Part 2 is just as beefy, welcoming remixes from R3HAB, Gabry Ponte, Timmy Trumpet, and DLMT

Mahalo x Milkwish – ‘Careless (feat. Lena Leon)’

Jauz – ‘Bring Et’

World-conquering DJ and producer Jauz kicks off 2022 with new single ‘Bring Et’, on his own Bite This! label. Punctuated by an invigorating bassline, infectious vocal samples and the slickest of drops, ‘Bring Et’ sees Jauz deliver a fresh, groove-driven take on tech house. 

Dack Janiels x GAWM – ‘776’

Dack Janiels and GAWM have joined forces on their new single ‘776’ slated for release on Bassrush Records. Riddim sensation Dack Janiels is teaming up with fast-rising dubstep producer GAWM on a new collab for Bassrush Records. ‘776’ is a wonky, hard-hitting dubstep track fusing their respective sounds across ominous melodic builds, trippy synth warbles, slabs of reverberating bass, and a distorted aesthetic flowing underneath the mix.

RIP Kenny – ‘Letting Go’

“I wrote this song [‘Letting Go’] after the worst mountain bike crash of my life — breaking my femur, collar bone (clean in half), 7 ribs and puncturing a lung. Before the crash we were already in a pretty terrible situation financially (post-covid), then basically everything in our life started falling in on top of us. I just had this incredible guilt and pain emotionally, we were struggling and it was largely my fault. I think you can hear the pain and catharsis in the song, trying to sort out the acceptance piece of the whole situation. I was honestly apprehensive to be so personal with it, but writing it there were these moments that were so visceral. Ultimately I think the realness that came out of it both enhanced the story and made for a better record.”

RIP Kenny

Crooked Colours – ‘Light Year (Hermitude Remix)’

The Spanish groove specialist is flexing his rhythmic sensibilities on a naughty tech house number for Insomniac, ‘Shake & Bounce’, an aptly titled single that wriggles itself through slick drums, buoyant basslines, a rattling lead, and a brazen vocal hook packing an unapologetic attitude.

THEMBA – ‘Reflections (Black Coffee Remix)’

Working his magic on one of the standout singles from THEMBA’s first artist album, Black Coffee flips ‘Reflections’ and turns it into a version that’s easily just as captivating.

Kharfi – ‘Aquarium’

After some sneak-peek singles, Kharfi kicks off the new year with his long-awaited debut album ‘Aquarium’. The electronic music producer has forged a twilight zone between genres, entwining the sedating undertow of trance with the penetrative bite of house. Alluding to his musical trajectory, ‘Aquarium’ is a candid display of passion.

Will Joseph Cook – ‘4AM’

“Conceptually ‘4AM’ is this really overly poetic voicemail for someone you love. A rush of emotions you want to share but there’s no one up to hear them. I had initially written the verse as an acapella and then at home one night I built up the big instrumental chorus. It wasn’t until I was actually recording some new music in Mexico that the track fully came to life. I was literally wide awake at 4am sending voice notes and those feelings gave me the rest of the song. I recorded so many sounds of the city from my apartment window that night – they’re all buried under the instruments.”
