Maybe it’s just me, but this week felt like it held a lot of the future of electronic music within its grasp. From forward-thinking mixtapes to the subdued sonics of producers that helped make Yeezus great to captivating dancefloor mantras, there’s a lot of great going on within the electronic music scene. Allow me to show you…
Oneman’s “Solitaire Vol. 3″ Mixtape
This could be the best mixtape you’ll hear in 2014. Oneman finds a way to blend bass music, hip-hop, and a host of other sounds into one hazy package. Loads of exclusives, special blends, and straight-up quality selections. You might need to block out some hours and truly soak this project in.
Gorgon City ft. Jennifer Hudson – “Go All Night”
That thing where I didn’t know what it’d be like for Jennifer Hudson to get on a Gorgon City track, yet it sounded exactly like I figured it’d sound. Latest from their forthcoming album Sirens.
Arca – “Thievery”
This video is everything.
Rabit ft. Riko Dan – “Black Dragons”
This is what UK grime’s sounding like right now. Houston-based producer Rabit’s “Black Dragons” instrumental gets the massive boost from Riko Dan’s rapid-fire flows.
AlunaGeorge – “Supernatural”
AlunaGeorge returns with a house-y/disco-y new tune. Get your Saturday Night Fever on.
Ghost Mutt – “Oh Boy Oh Baby”
Massive tune for the Dipset heads who want something a bit deeper, a bit more UK-centric, taken from Donky Pitch’s new compilation, Five.
Aaliyah – “Never No More (HeadBanga Re-Work)”
That thing where deep Aaliyah cuts get a new life from producers you weren’t up on.
Anna’s “Let Me Take You” EP
Anna comes correct with a murky tech EP. This is for the heads who close their eyes and let their inhibitions loose in the middle of the dancefloor.
Mr. Carmack’s “Drugs” EP
The best thing about Mr. Carmack tours is that he can go ahead give away the material he plays on tour before he hits the road again. This dude’s got the future in his studio, and loves letting us know he’s on that next wave. Don’t sleep.
P. Morris – “Lunette [incomplete]“
A weighty, beautiful tune to let the world know that P. Morris is back. Proper end credits riddim.
