The hottest electronic dance music to kickoff your weekend starts here:

1. Gina Star & Poet feat. Golden Phoenix – “Electric Love” (Original Mix)
An elevating melody and overarching vocals shine bright in “Electric Love”. Gina Star and the Black Eyed Peas’ Poet combine musical talents in the twinkling single which features shimmering leads, whispering pads and a distinctive Gina Star bass.

2. WOZ feat. Joel Compass – “Early Morning Champagne”
With heavyweight remixes under his belt, WOZ enlists the aid of Joel Compass for his debut original release. Airy vocals pop against the Bristol producer’s deep garage grooves. This bubbly tune is due out Dec 1 via Black Butter Records. Sneak a peek.

3. Riddim Commision feat. Mr. Hudson & Newman Generals – “Battle” (Cause & Affect Remix)
“Battle” benefits from a ridiculous remix from Cause & Affect in the form of a bassy house banger.

4. Mike Bugout – “Lynx”
Out Monday (Nov 18) is a spellbinding new single, “Lynx”. NYC’s Mike Bugout gets deep with fine-tuned percussions and sub-driven bass. Sneak a peek.

5. Patrick Baker – “Summer Lover” (Gazzo X Dani Deahl Remix)
Stepping away from the “harder edge” both artists are known for, this funky house remix stays true to the original’s buttery feel while kicking up its dancefloor appeal. Flowing from breakdown synths reminiscent of old French house, to poppy keys and buzzy risers, it’s evocative of electro but with a laid back twist.

6. Thomas Gold feat. Kaelyn Behr – “Remember”
A sultry hypnotic beat allure like the mysterious stranger you just met in the club (as the song suggests).

7. Promise Land – “Bad DJ”
Promise Land kick things up into high-gear with their latest single, “Bad DJ”.

8. Afrojack – Community of 3 Million (Typhoon Relief Mix)
