As usual, we have some of the best music you’ve probably never heard, including debut songs from brand new artists like Elle Azar. We also have fresh tracks from some of our favorites like GRYFFIN, TCHAMI, BONEZ, as well as some artists that don’t spell their names in all caps.
Check out our favorite new tracks from the past week, and stream the entire playlist below.
Bronze Whale – The Shape Of Things LP
We’re starting off right with the brand new LP from indie-electronic duo Bronze Whale. Pulsing with glossy synths and crisp downtempo drums, The Shape of Things can’t help but make even the darkest nights brighter. It’s a lush, chilled-out collection of songs perfect for both late summer nights and daytime pool parties.
BONEZ – OG
We’re back with another dirty house banger from the mysterious BONEZ. “OG” is a fierce house track in the veins of Malaa and TCHAMI, but with a fresh, distinct style that’s all his own.
Gryffin x SLANDER – All You Need To Know (ft Calle Lehmann)
“All You Need To Know” is a match made in melodic bass heaven. The track fuses Gryffin‘s melodic genius and SLANDER‘s distinct basslines. Infused with Calle Lehmann’s euphoric vocals, this is posed to be a huge summer anthem in the 2019 festival season.
Luude – Hurricane (ft Great News)
This unique track from Australian bass producer Luude has a Pixies-meets-MGMT sound that I absolutely love. “Hurricane” is a blend of psych rock and vintage synth tones that shows off Luude’s sonic versatility as a producer.
Elle Azar – Mess
“Mess” is the debut track from singer-songwriter Elle Azar, and it’s a beautiful, emotional ballad, and it has us hooked immediately. Her upcoming album addresses mental health head-on, and we can already tell you it’s essential listening.
“I was feeling pretty lost when I wrote this song. At a quick glance everything might have seemed fine, but if you looked closer, it really wasn’t. ‘Mess’ was a moment of imagining being put back to my truest form, and then breathing a sigh of relief in the middle of it all… realizing that it’s alright, even when it’s not alright.” – Elle Azar
Nicky Romero x DallasK – Sometimes (feat XYLØ)
“Sometimes” is an all-star collaboration between friends Nicky Romero and DallasK, with vocals from one of our favorites XYLØ.
“‘Sometimes” is a song that we wrote about the push and pull between your past and present. Almost everyone has had someone come into their life who made such an impact that they lingered well beyond the end of the relationship, and this is a song for those people” – DallasK
Delta Heavy – Only In Dreams (Album)
Drum and bass duo Delta Heavy have been on our radar for most 2019. After releasing “Lift You Up” with Zeds Dead, the duo has continued to impress.
Today, they’re back with their newest project, an 11 track LP titled Only in Dreams. The album features singles with Modestep, and a few other collaborators. If you are a fan of modern drum n bass, this album is right up your alley.
TCHAMI – Omega (ft Ibranovski)
It’s been 5 years since Tchami made his North American debut, and he’s celebrating with a return to his roots. “Omega” is a booming future/bass house collaboration with Ibranovski that will capture old and new fans alike.
David Pietra – Remedy (ft Nino Lucarelli)
JANOS – Zero
“Zero” is an uplifting anthem from Swedish singer-songwriter JANOS, and we’re already putting this in our summer playlists.
“It’s not a vindictive song, it’s more like an ‘I do me and you do you’ type of thing. It’s about maximizing who you are and not listening to haters, fake friends, and what society tells you to do.” –JANOS
AIR APPARENT – Asking You
“Asking You” is a lush, synth-driven electro-pop love song perfect for the start of spring. AIR APPARENT has been making a name for himself with his chilled-out tracks, and this uptempo jam showcases his versatility as a producer.
Y Balloon – Mockinbird
This might be one of our favorite new releases of the year. After years working as a successful tech entrepreneur in Silicon Valley, Mark Daiss, creatively known as Y Balloon is now diving head first into the music industry. His debut single, “Mockingbird” is a stunning 4-minute track that defies the notion of genre. This is the lead single from his 7-track JOMO (Joy Of Missing Out) EP.
FTampa – One Last Time (ft Maggie Szabo)
Concourse – Resonate
These are just a few of the songs in the newest update to Freshly Picked Beats. Be sure to check out the Spotify playlist in its entirety below.
