1) boerd – Panacea [Comorbid Records]  | Buy on BeatportBuy on iTunes

We have featured a couple of the singles (Dust, City Sleep) from boerd’s new album “Panacea” in past editions and for a good reason, we also called boerd and the Comorbid crew an innovative force in the Dance music scene, we stand by that!

If you are looking for a well crafted, sonically enticing and refreshingly unique album, “Panacea” is your best bet. From start to finish, boerd delights with skillful production and clever arrangement that allows you to let your imagination go and for 30+ minutes feel like an important participant in a journey to an undiscovered world.

In a scene driven by singles success, copy and paste music and festival oriented drops, it is great to have an alternative as good as this one!

 

2) Lektrique – Omega [Kannibalen Records]  | Buy on BeatportBuy on iTunes

You can always count on Kannibalen Records to bring the fireworks to the party and Lektrique’s new single “Omega” is the perfect example to back that up. If you are looking for dark and bass heavy electro house music, you are in the right place and we can say with confidence that noone champions that style better than the Kannibalen crew.

Vincent Sergeant or as we know him in the music world “Lektrique” is a Belgian music producer and DJ that started his career at the young age of 15 and has not looked back since then. In 2011 he relocated to Canada where he linked up with Kannibalen Records that at the time was a brand new imprint looking to make an impact, a move that has paid dividends for both parties.

A string of successful tracks like “Jesus Christ”, “Terror” and “Flesh & Blood” as well as hosting a popular weekly radio show has placed the bright spotlight on the 24 year old artist and with “Omega” he solidifies his status as one of the most talented up-and-coming producers of the scene today.

The package also includes remixes by Lumberjvck, Our Time and Andy’s iLL so be sure to give those a play as well!

 

3) Loud Luxury – All For You [Prep School Recordings]  | Buy on BeatportBuy on iTunes

If you wish to get a head-start with music that will make a splash during the upcoming hot summer then look no further than Loud Luxury’s new single “All For You” featuring Kaleena Zanders on Prep School Recordings.

If there was such thing as a summer anthem checklist, we are more than certain “All For You” exceeds on those. Wobbly deep bass? check! Beautiful melody? check! Soulful vocals? check! Catchy style that makes you have the track on repeat until you are sick of it? check check check!

Loud Luxury are a duo out of Toronto, Canada that you should definitely keep an eye and ear open for. For the last several months they have spoiled us with a great amount of quality free downloads that are getting played by some of the best DJs around the world and we are positive the commercial release of “All For You” is the start of something special for them.
