Pham – Nostalgia Mixtape
After taking nearly two years off from releasing music, Polish production prodigy Pham makes his triumphant return with Nostalgia, a diverse 5 song mixtape. The mixtape seamlessly floats from melancholy to upbeat, showcasing influences from indie-pop, hip-hop, and trap.
NASAYA – Patterns
“Patterns” is the first single released on Minerva Music, a label started by indie-electronic legends Goldroom and RAC. It’s a synthy, soulful track influenced by NASAYA’s diverse upbringing in Reunion Island, a French island located just outside of Madagascar.
Marc Benjamin x DNMKG – Hooked
Marc Benjamin may not be a household name but he has the dance-pop sensibility of artists like Zedd and Nicky Romero, and “Hooked” is a dance-pop crossover gem that will keep you dancing all summer.
PAUZA – Carajillo (ft La Real)
Our favorite (and only) Cuban female electronic duo is back with “Carajillo”. The song, which was just relaunched for Cocada: The Second Season seamlessly infuses electronic synths with Cuban rhythms.
ËMMË – Yule (ft PON CHO)
This collaboration between longtime friends is a genre-bending heater, full of nail-biting builds and heavy oscillating bass. It’s going to shake your soul and keep you moving from start to finish.
Antra – Rock The Boat
“Rock The Boat” is a future bass meets R&B remake of Aaliyah’s classic song by the same name.
teamwork. – Afterhours (ft Nina Nesbitt & AJ Mitchell)
L.A based songwriting/production duo teamwork. have enlisted two of the hottest rising singers in Nina Nesbitt and AJ Mitchell for this pop-tinged electronic summer jam.
Valencia James – Flames
“Flames” is the debut single from dark-pop artist Valencia James, who used the tragic burning of her childhood home as the inspiration for the song.
Sweeps – Not Just One Thing
This single was pitched to me as a “Bonobo and Tycho” type sound with a twist of lo-fi hip hop. Sweeps makes his River Beats debut with this gem.
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.
