Leave it to Seven Lions and Minnesota to come out with a track that infuses all different genre’s of electronic music into one glitchy, bassed out mix. Mimi Page opens up the track with her atmospheric vocals, leading into a constant progression of sounds. This one’s being offered up for free off of OWSLA’s subscription service, The Nest; however if you aren’t subscribed to that service, you can grab it from Seven Lion’s Soundcloud below.
Following his moombahton remix of Diplo’s “Set It Off” is this electro house remix to Singularity’s “The Tide.” Catchy vocals, explosive synths, and his versatility to jump around genres makes me happy to see TheFatRat back releasing tracks after his short break. He’s also been busy helping other artists out, such as mastering Coyote Kisses’ new EP, so expect more tracks to follow in the coming months.
During his set at this year’s Coachella Music Festival, Baauer announced that he wasn’t sure whether he could play this track, yet ended up premiering his remix to Disclosure’s “You & Me.” Legal obligations aside, it was our first glimpse at something a little different from the artist who is known for his trap productions and the “Harlem Shake” video meme that spread like wildfire. The remix will be released on May 21st, in the meantime you can listen to the track below from his Soundcloud.
After months of waiting for their VIP version of “Internet Friends” to be released, Knife Party is back with the Haunted House EP, sporting another three original tracks on top of the VIP mix. They still maintain the intensity in every one of these tracks, but attempt to distance themselves from what people refer to them as: Dubstep artists. The opening track, “Power Glove,” has had a preview floating around since Knife Party uploaded it to their Soundcloud and is the most reminiscent of their massiveness. In “LRAD” they test out a deep jungle beat, which had people up in arms about this stylistic change. There is the VIP version of “Internet Friends,” which needs no introduction. And finally the last track to close, “EDM Death Machine,” has got to be my favorite track off of the EP since it has a nice blend of the old and new. The official release of the Haunted House EP is May 5th, nevertheless, we have full streams for each track below. We’ll update the post with the purchase links once they come out.

Alex Metric is back on OWSLA, bringing the heat on his brand new Ammunition Pt. 3. Tracks off this release, as well those off his previous releases saw heavy rotation in Miami music week sets. The 4-track EP does not disappoint as he hits many different styles, showing incredible versatility. “Ilium” is Metric’s collaboration with Mark Yardley, and he went on to compare it to The Chemical Brothers, describing it as an “emotional, melodic, big moment record.” Moving on, “Want Ya” is another standout track–an upbeat, vocal driven combination of house and electro elements that is sure bring a crowd to insanity. “Rave Weapon 2″ has a dark techno/garage vibe that seems well suited for late nights in sweaty clubs. Lastly, “Scandalism” has a nu disco vibe while still bringing the electro flare that Alex Metric is best known for. This EP is out today, so stream the EP below then head over to Beatport to pick it up.

Pairing the production talents of eighteen year old Madeon with Ellie Goulding’s vocals is a sure way to get yourself a radio hit.
