LOVING this new one from holywater and Cruel Youth, the musical duo of Teddy Sinclair and husband & artist/producer Willy Moon. The irresistible new single features whimsical lyrics from Sinclair, who previously worked on Madonna’s album Rebel Heart and co-wrote Rihanna’s “Kiss It Better. Spotify here.
Alexander Lewis & Brasstracks teamed up for a dope rendition of Kanye West’s 2010 hit “All of the Lights” and it’s got the makings of a fan-favorite. “I felt like ‘All of the Lights’ was perfect for a brass cover,” Lewis said in reference to his newest collaboration. “One day, I had a couple hours to spare so I recorded that main motif idea and did some production/structure to begin the tune, sent it to Ivan [of Brasstracks] and asked him if he was down. He literally sent me the trumpets the next day.” Dig in and enjoy!
A huge premiere for us here today coming from Spanish producer/dj UNER who is at the forefront of melodic house/techno with recent releases on labels such as Suara, Bedrock, Culprit, Saved Records and Sasha’s imprint Last Night On Earth.
The track is entitled “The Sound of Sand” and features the vocal offerings of Ido Segal, on it we hear UNER going off into a slightly deeper and more warm balearic direction but rest assured if you’re a fan of his melodic sound you won’t be disappointed.
After catching the eyes and ears of the electronic music community with their bass driven lullaby debut “zZz,” it has been a privilege watching the artistic evolution of Dutch duo DROELOE. Their latest “Jump,” is a percussion-driven pop production complimented by the charming vocals of Nevve.

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.
