Friday Rewind: 10 EDM Essentials For Your Rotation

The hottest electronic dance music to kick off your weekend starts here:

Luis Gusttavo “Time & Space Psytrance” Mix 002
Let’s get weird, in a deeper, more intellectual sort-of-way as cool nights embrace hot toddies and meaningful conversation. Luis Gusttavo explores topics of the universe in this psychedelic-progressive-trance mix.

Blood Diamonds ‘Osaka’ EP
Michael Diamond, better known as Blood Diamonds, released his Osaka EP this week. The two-track OWSLA packshot is a soundscape of ambient noise. Layering instruments such as drums, xylophones, and violins with intermixed “warm-up” vocals, the LA-producer dares to be different. (If you’re a singer or ever took chorus class, you’ll recognize what we mean by “warm-up” vocals aka the oohs, ahhs, and me-me-me-me’s).

SpectraSoul feat. Jamie Jooste “Play The Fool”
Piano lines, a rolling drum break, and the feisty vocals of Jamie Jooste provide entertainment for your ears in the latest from SpectraSoul. The dnb ear candy is due out October 20th via Shogun Audio. Sneak a peek.

DCUP “Don’t Be Shy” (Wave Racer Remix)
An Australian tidal wave is coming through. Sydney’s Wave Racer reworks the “Don’t Be Shy,” original by Melbourne-based DCUP. A trap-like beat tumbles in glistening arpeggios, and cascading synth work.

Capital Cities “Kangaroo Court” (Forever Kid Remix)
Capital Cities ooze happy feelings, period. Forever Kid tries his hand at their “Kangaroo Court,” which results in pure magic. Piano lines and a blazing trumpet solo peeks though a funky disco house beat.

Scrufizzer “Kick It” (Marshall F Remix)
Marshall F’s version of “Kick It” is some next level sh*t. Stacking sounds like a thick deli sandwich, this groovy garage/house/rap/bass/anthem is delicious. Sneak a peek until it receives a Black Butter Records release October 6th.

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike vs. Sander Van Doorn “Project T” (Martin Garrix Remix)
“Project T” gets re-imagined by the 17-year-old Martin Garrix. Choosing wisely to leave its catchy melody intact, Garrix injects a dose of his signature festival-sized sound.

DVBBS – Live @ Beyond Wonderland
Festival junkies, behold the incredible DVBBS set from last weekend’s Beyond Wonderland available for free download. Relive the experience, and get dancing.

ak9 “GØ?”
Polish producer ak9 empties a round of sound in his latest DUSTLA release. “GØ?” is a serial assault to the eardrums, packing bass-heavy techniques, tenacious glitch chops, and a trap-style drum rhythm.
