New Week, New Music. Let’s get it
This week we have new music from some absolute legends like Above & Beyond, R3HAB, and Tommy Trash. But as usual, we’re bringing you music from some artists you may not have heard. Hopefully by the end of this P-TAB, Svrcina, and more will be on your radar for 2019.
Check out our favorite new tracks from the past week, and stream the entire playlist below.
Above & Beyond – Distorted Truth
The second chapter of Above & Beyond’s Common Ground Companion EP sees the trio taking a dark twist. This is Above & Beyond at their rawest, channelling the vitality of classic trance instrumentation into a track that manages to simultaneously be brutish and beautiful.
Snavs – EPOCH
That second drop got me hard on this one. EPOCH features a variety of different elements. From trap to dubstep, to some hard house, its a quick and easy thrill ride. Snavs has been on our radar for some time, and he continues to stay fresh with this new release.
Svrcina – Insecure
Svrcina may be a new name to you, but she’s no stranger to the music scene. The Nashville-based, Detroit-born singer-songwriter has already penned over 500 songs at the young age of 22. Her newest solo track “Insecure” is a beautiful piece of electropop that touches on the deeply relatable feeling of being messed around by someone who thinks you’re a pushover.
P-TAB x Concourse – Ever See You (ft Max Landry)
New Orleans favorite P-TAB has collaborated with Concourse for a track very different from what we’re used to from him. “Ever See You” is an energetic, vocal Future house track featuring the vocals of Max Landry.
Tommy Trash x i_o – Let Me Go (ft Daisy Guttridge)
The mau5trap label has been delivering some impressive music lately, and “Let Me Go” is no exception. While Tommy Trash and i_o have collaborated before with 2017’s “Oxygen” this track actually precedes it in concept.
“This is the first song Tommy and i worked on together. it started as a remix for one of his
tracks and then we tried to work it to a techno banger. We could never get it right until Tommy
grabbed a keyboard and in 5 seconds wrote that anthemic melody that it has now. it’s a melody i
was obsessed with and one that reaches all the way back to the first guest mix I ever put out.” – i_o
Ark Patrol – Darling, You Can’t Walk Away
Ark Patrol is off to a great 2019. The producer was featured by us last week after he released his first single of the year, Your Eyes. His new one this week is an interesting sound. An acid-house, trippy disco-pop joint named “Darling, You Can’t Walk Away.” Give it a listen, you won’t be dissapointed.
Walter Wilde & p0gman – Bass Boom feat. Boogie-T (Tyro Remix)
This list just really needed some weird, funky, wobbly bass. And Tyro delivers that for us with his new remix for Boogie T and pOgman’s “Bass Boom”
R3HAB x Icona Pop – This Is How We Party
R3HAB and Icona Pop have both been crafting party anthems for years, so it’s no surprise that they’re collaborating on a 90’s inspired party track. “This Is How We Party” is a feel-good blend of breezy instrumental melodies and catchy vocals that lead into an upbeat, groovy breakdown perfect for the dancefloor.
Cookie Monsta – You’re Not From Around Here (ft Flowdan)
Cookie Monsta follows up his hit track “Elevate” with another hard-hitting bass track. Joining him on the track is certified grime cult hero Flowdan, whose career as an east London MC has made him comfortable collaborating with nearly any genre.
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.
