Stockholm newcomer LIOHN disappeared from the spotlight for a minute, but after rallying some serious production energy on duties for Axwell, Ingrosso and Swedish House Mafia, the young contender returns to a sound truer to the material that marked his debut solo EP. On official remix duties for Lil Skies moment in the spotlight “Red Roses”, LIOHN leads with fierce beats and restrained synth work throughout, giving the track enough breathing room to stay true to the lyrical emphasis of ‘Red Roses’ whilst remind fans there’s still an untamed edge to LIOHN’s production finesse.

Born in the Dominican Republic and more recently cut from the bubbling Los Angeles circuit, Jarina De Marco is more than ready to step up as leading lady. Produced by genre defying duo GTA, who the rising artist donned her vocal chops for on “True Romance,” latest solo moment “STFU” oozes the attitude and eccentric electronic energy we have come to expect from De Marco and newfound label mates Mad Decent. As an outspoken newcomer providing seriously powerful solo material, we can’t help but feel Jarina De Marco is an essential addition to the Mad Decent family.

There’s not many people that can get away with remixing Kendrick Lamar these days. Then there’s Skrillex. Having barely caught his breath from dropping the Poo Bear accompanied ‘Would You Ever,’ his take on ‘HUMBLE’ builds into a heavystepping affair of the kind of main room wizardry we have come to expect from Sonny Moore for more than a decade. Here’s to the A-list EDM acts keeping it fun and not falling flat on the A-list remix endeavors.

This new one from SWEDUM couldn’t be titled more appropriately. “Summer State of Mind” is the debut single from TENACITY, a brand new label from TEN Music Group home to dynamic talents like Zara Larsson, Icona Pop, Erik Hassle, Elliphant, etc. The new alias of Mack, a creative force behind the Zara Larsson project, serves as yet another outlet for the accomplished songwriter to flex his talents. As cliché as this may sound.. this is truly the perfect summer tune.

Hesitated from categorizing this EP as EDM but I don’t think that takes away from how fun it is. As much as there needs to be a healthy dose of weird, avant-garde music to feed the masses, duos like CHIMES are making good ol’ dance music with great success. Their five-track Ninety Four EP is sure to be a welcome addition to your easy listening or pre-game. Check it out below or on Spotify here.
