| March 7, 2014 - 1:57 pm

Kick off the weekend with the hottest recent electronic dance music releases.

1. Bear Grillz – “Wolf Whistle”
Bear Grillz dropped a mean VIBE mini mix last week. Today, we are please to debut “Wolf Whistle” from his forthcoming EP, out Tuesday (March 11) via Firepower. This is one snarling wolf with which you do not want to mess.

2. Lindsey Stirling – “Elements” (Animale Remix)
Chicago-based Animale flexes his versatility and music finesse. He composes a therapeutic, progressive symphony which beautifully frames Lindsey Stirling’s breathtaking stringwork. Cop it for free download.

3. LA Riots & Polina – “Kamikaze”
LA Riots and Polina go “Kamikaze” on the dancefloor. Out now on Musical Freedom, the tune is a perfect balance of contrasts combining LA Riots’ signature roaring production and Polina’s silky and haunting vocals. Cop it.

4. Martin Garrix & Jay Hardway – “Wizard” (Tchami Remix)
With a wave of his magic wand, Tchami gives “Wizard” a refreshing new sound. Funky drumwork and a sexy deep bassline get it poppin. Out March 17th via Spinnin, sneak a peek.

5. The Subs feat. Colonel Abrams – “Trapped”
Belgian beat-masters, The Subs, deliver ‘Trapped’, a shining rendition of the 1985 street-smart R&B hit by Colonel Abrams. A rolling bassline and melodic pads set the tone underneath the powerful and infectious vocal, which was re-recorded especially by the Colonel. As the title would indicate there really is no escaping the gripping groove, the second single to be taken from their forthcoming album Hologram.

6. Jacuzzi Ft. Mr. Carmack – Seppuku Pt. 1
Out now for free download, Seppuku Pt. 1 is the first part of an ongoing collaboration project between Jacuzzi and fellow Hawaiian producer, Mr. Carmack. Part one, comprised of the short but heavy “Torture” and “Twilight”, are a melding of sounds. Feast your ears.

7. TJR feat. Benji Madden – “Come Back Down”
Melbourne bounce master TJR collaborates with Benji Madden for his latest single, “Come Back Down”. Madden’s strong vocal presence jacks up TJR’s classic feel-good big electro house sound to a new level. Turn it up.

8. Blasterjaxx & Ibranovski – “Astronaut”
Big new tune from Blasterjaxx and Ibranovski; a thick deep electro kick and a nasty sawtooth synth trump, while a clever and unexpected second breakdown rule this track.

9. SLDGHMR & Crywolf “We Could Be Heaven”
SLDGHMR joins creative forces with Crywolf for this vocal-driven uplifting electro single. With a tasteful blend of timely switchups, heavy hitting drums, and lush synths, “We Could Be Heaven” is a dancefloor weapon. Grab it for free, compliments of Always Never Records.

10. John Martin – “Anywhere For You” (Tiësto vs. Dzeko & Torres Remix)
Ahead of the release of John Martin’s remarkable debut solo single “Anywhere For You” on March 30th, Tiësto has joined forces with producer starlets Dzeko & Torres to offer up a stellar new remix. Listen up.

11. TimeSquared – “Release the Horns”
Dallas, Texas-based duo TimeSquared breathe some soul into the trap game. Experimenting with sound, the tune is delightfully melodic and ass-clapping all at the same time. Cop it for free download.

12. Zedd feat. Hayley Williams – “Stay The Night” (TBMA Remix)
Not all that long after Zedd’s eventual Grammy winning single came out were there an endless slew of producers looking to remix the track. Few actually took the time to perfect a rework of “Stay The Night”. Dubstep trio TBMA take the cake with their melodic bass rendition. Cop the free download.
