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

Let’s Pretend – “Grand Theft Audio”
Kick back with this groovy video-game inspired tune compliments of the anonymous duo, Let’s Pretend. The cleverly titled, “Grand Theft Audio” is carjacked by a mean drop, and is available for free download.

The Wanted – “We Own The Night” (The Chainsmokers Remix)
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, no, it’s another damn song about owning/running the night. All joking aside, The Chainsmokers kill it with this stunning interpretation by The Wanted, in which a melodic upbeat production accompanies feel-good lyrics.

Stanton Warriors feat. Them & Us – “Cut Me Up” (ETC! ETC! Mix)
The genre-blending Stanton Warriors release their dope new tune, “Cut Me Up” alongside a star-studded remix package. Mad Decent’s ETC!ETC! muddies up the original with some moombah-trap vibes.

Bassjackers – “Zing”
Sampling Fatboy Slim’s “Push The Tempo,” Bassjackers “Zing” with their Protocol imprint release. A churning electro synth is topped with a tribal, percussion-driven sound in this late night, booty-shaking, zinger.

NERVO & Ivan Gough feat. Beverley Knight – “Not Taking This No More”
The long-awaited “Not Taking This No More” is finally here, and it’s a departure from what you’d expect. The progressive marvel is comprised of an eclectic melding of drum, cymbal, claps, electro riff and soulful vocal work.

Danny Avila & AN21 – Ibiza Calling (The Album)
After a successful five years in the making, Ibiza Calling celebrates its significant run at the world famous Space Ibiza.

Jack Beats – “Get Down” (?Z Remix)
The mysterious ?Z strikes again. This time, he tricks out the electro favorite “Get Down” with massive snare rolls, grimy bass, 808’s and all the twerkings.
