KSHMR – ‘Harmonica Andromeda’
“The creation of ‘Harmonica Andromeda’ made me fall in love with music all over again — there’s a journey in every song. It’s the most creative music I’ve ever made and the most challenging, filled with sharp turns and surprises. I hope the world loves it as much as I do.”— KSHMR
Super8 & Tab – ‘In This Life’
Taken from the second part of Super8 & Tab’s ‘These Little Stories’ album, ‘In This Life’ sees the Finnish duo whip up their own brand of magic again.

Cosmic Gate x Diana Miro – ‘Blame’
Premiered during their Miami Open Skies livestream last weekend, GRAMMY-nominated electronic music act Cosmic Gate’s first 2021 single, ‘Blame’ is out now. Given lyrical and vocal smoulder by singer/songwriter Diana Miro, it finds Nic and Bossi bringing music with a more introspective edge. Marked out with dramatically drawn strings, pulsing percs, twisted synths and sub-bass-boom, over seven mood-brooding minutes, the track moves emotively from simmer to sear.
Dezza – ‘44° North, 63° West’
Inspired by and a celebration of the small coastal province of Nova Scotia in Eastern Canada that he calls home, ‘44° North, 63° West’ sees Dezza at his musical best.

MAKJ – ‘Night Ends’

Kryder x Mark Roma – ‘Pleasure Or Pain’
Since ‘K2’, Kryder’s been able to genre-surf at will, with his most recent remix work (on ilan Bluestone x Maor Levi’s ‘Hold On’ and Solarstone’s ‘When I Dream’) putting him in a trancier state of mind. That’s tipped over into his own music, and most specifically into the trance-progressive trappings of ‘Pleasure Or Pain’.
NBLM x H3NRY THR!LL x Biometrix – ‘Superman’
From the very start ‘Superman’ loiters with rude intent in the bottom ends of the production spectrum, threatening to do realistic damage to bass bins the world over. Aggressive synth sections thrust up against raucously reverberating basslines, rhythms shuddering, stuttering and spitting as Biometrix’s vocal swaggers across the topline with an arrogant confidence. For fans of H3nry Thr!ll’s harder, more bass-heavy work, this should tick all of the boxes (and will probably kick them to the curb while it’s at it).
Riot Ten – ‘Get Out’
Whether it’s heavy dubstep, melodic trap, hip-hop, hardstyle or house, Riot Ten has it mastered. Following ‘Poppin’, the lead single to his forthcoming LP, Riot Ten returns with the explosive sophomore single ‘Get Out’. This spitfire collaborative effort with STARX is out now via Dim Mak.

Lycoriscoris – ‘Utsurou’
“Memories and retrospection are the fundamental concepts that inspire my music. For instance, my own artist’s name plays on the name of the Lycoris flower. In Japan, it’s often found near cemeteries, which is, of course, a dark connotation — however, one day when searching in the Language of Flowers (Floriography) I discovered that the word Lycoris also means ‘I’m looking forward to seeing you again’. I realized how this dark flower also hides a beautiful and positive message. I think my music, and my new album ‘Utsurou’, has the same kind of dualism as the Lycoris flower.”— Lycoriscoris
Lime – ‘Babe We’re Gonna Love Tonight (Jacques Greene Remix)’
An atmospheric, emotion-tinged rework that builds in intensity across its five minutes, Jacques Greene turns ‘Babe We’re Gonna Love Tonight’ into a fluttering ambient techno cut that maintains the electricity of the 1982 original.
