Anna Lunoe – 303
It’s been a while, but Anna Lunoe is back in action with the release of “303” on Mad Decent. An ode to the 303 bass synthesizer and acid house culture, Anna’s new track packs the perfect combination of house grooves and bouncing basslines for a dancefloor heater that we’ll be bumping all summer.
Mielo – Scar (ft Cailee Rae)
The second single off Mielo’s forthcoming Anywhere But Here EP is an emotional track about the dangers of putting your trust in the wrong people.
“Cailee & I wrote ‘Scar’ when both of us were going through transitional points in our young careers. We reflected on the traumas of making ourselves vulnerable at such a young age through music & the lasting scars that the previous years have left. This song is us reclaiming control of our lives & careers through the new paths we are paving this year.”
Loud Luxury – Love No More (Fedde Le Grand Remix)
“Love No More” has been blowing up everywhere, and it’s finally getting a well-deserved remix treatment from a legend. Fedde breathes new life into ‘Love No More’, complete with uplifting synths, digital warble and the original’s chopped up vocal piece.
Seven Lions – Lose Myself (LICK Remix)
It’s been over three years since Seven Lions released “Lost Myself” with Lynn Gunn, and now the classic is getting a fresh facelift from LICK. Playing on the powerful vocals and soft melody of the original, LICK shakes us into a heavy first drop, and transports us to the melodic realm with the second.
Above & Beyond – Sahara Love (Seven Lions Remix)
If the remix of a Seven Lions original wasn’t enough, we have a new remix done by the man himself.
Escort – City Life (ft Fonda Rae)
“City Life” is the title track and first single from Escort’s long-awaited new LP, which will be accompanied by a nationwide tour. The disco outift maintains their classic sound while going in a new R&B driven direction, and we’re excited to hear what else they have in store for us.
Dabin x Inukshuk – Another Day (ft Nevve)
We’ve been anticipating Dabin’s sophomore album Wild Youth for a while, and “Another Day” just magnifies the excitement. Nevve provides the vocals to compliment Dabin and Inukshuk’s soaring melodic production.
Sully – Frequency Shift
“Frequency Shift” is the debut single from Sully, who previously performed as Crowd Cntrl. While Sully might a fresh name, this bass producer is no stranger to the scene. He’s old friends and current roommates with one of our favorite artists Peekaboo. His dark melodic bass has us excited to see where this project goes.
RavenKis – Roller Coaster
RavenKis has been producing music since 2013, but “Roller Coaster” is only the fourth single he’s released. It’s a sophisticated downtempo chillstep track with phenomenal vocals, and it’s going to be on rotation for a while. Here’s to hoping RavenKis keeps making more music like this.
Crystal Knives – Stranded
Do you have a toxic ex that needs to go away? So do I, and so does Crystal Knives. “Stranded” is an emotional, unique collaboration with artists Ivish and Nathan Kay.
“I like to put myself in weird, unfamiliar situations when it comes to songwriting. I loved the idea of putting myself, Ivish and Nathan together for a session because we all come from three very different worlds; Dance music, urban music and contemporary jazz. We went into the session with no idea what was going to happen and had the entire song written less than six hours later, the energy in the room was electric and I really think that vibe shines through on the finished record.”
Lisa Heller – Ghost
You know I can’t go a whole week without some quality electro-pop, and this time it’s courtesy of Lisa Heller. It’s a fresh, catchy track with deep lyrical content.
I wrote ‘Ghost’ about reminiscing from a relationship and having new memories now alone. I feel like a lot of people can relate to that feeling of not being able to let go.” – Lisa Heller
Marc Benjamin – Fall For You
“Fall For You” is a sultry progressive house gem that calls to mind summer nights dancing in the dark. It’s a dance track that will play well anywhere from a festival main stage to a tiny house party.
Sulivan King – Save The World
Now, this is just fantastic. Sulivan King took dance music’s most known lyrics and put a rock/dubstep-influenced spin on it. The Swedish House Mafia tribute is from King’s new label Thank You For Raging.
Quix – Giving Up (Carbin Remix)
Carbin puts a great spin on Quix 2018 hit “Giving UP.”
Party Favor & GTA – Work It Out
Party Favor drops a dose of dance-worthy bass with his new track “Work it Out.” “Work it Out,” with GTA, is the second single from his upcoming Album ‘Layers.’ 2019 is looking like a year of massive transformation for Party Favor, so stay tuned for “Layers” dropping in late April.
Shadient – Abberate
“Abberate” is the lead single from Shadient’s high-powered “Divide” Ep that debuts on NGHTMRE & SLANDER’s Gud Vibrations. It’s undoubtedly one of the most unusual executions fusing trap, raw industrial techno, big beat.
Psymbionic – Hypnotoad (Toadface Remix)
Wouldn’t be a proper list without some truly forward thinking bass artists. Both Toadface Psymbionic fit that mold. Psymbionic shattered the stereotype that music fits squarely into any one genre with his latest album, “Carbon Based Lifeform.” The dynamic musician is following up the 11-track project with a slew of remixes from like-minded producers from across the nation. Today we get Toadface’officialal remix for
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.
