Stuck home, not able to hit Coachella this weekend? Don’t fret. We’ve assembled enough electronic music excellence from the past week to, at the very least, soundtrack one kick-ass afternoon. Big beats, chilled beats, beats to turn up loud. You know. All kinds of piping hot goodness. Dive in.
Disclosure & Friend Within – “The Mechanism”
Disclosure hit us with a random pre-Coachella treat in the form of a new single that’ll be out next week. Disclosure linking up with Friend Within is one of the best things we’ve heard in 2014 (so far).
Duck Sauce’s Quack LP
Been a long time coming, but this week we finally got the chance to hear what A-Trak and Armand Van Helden have been creating, and it’s just as great as we thought it’d be.
Duck Sauce – “NRG (Hudson Mohawke Remix)”
And speaking of Duck Sauce, the single for “NRG” dropped and HudMo came correct with a surprising rework of the track.
Young Thug – “Stoner (Evian Christ Remix)”
Daytrip – “Flight 43 (NYC)”
This duo is on to something. Not sure what it is, but I like it.
ZHU – “Paradise Awaits”
This guy ZHU is killing it right now; “Paradise Awaits” is the latest we’ve heard from his forthcoming EP, and if some radio programmer was smart, they’d be adding this to rotation ASAP.
Gorgon City ft. Laura Welsh – “Here For You”
Your summer anthem hits in the spring; you’re welcome.
Paft Dunk – “Got Lucky (Dimitri From Paris Re-Edit)”
We imagine you’re tired of “Get Lucky,” but Dimitri knocked out a great “re-edit” of last summer’s jam.
UZ – Trap Shit 17/20
UZ celebrates two years since the release of Trap Shit 6/9 with this banger of a trap’d out EP.
Slum Village – “Fall In Love (Moody Good Remix)”
Rolling credits with this heat rock from Moody Good, turning up the bass and intensity on this SV classic.
