SBTRKT has been hinting at a new album for a bit now, and it looks like it’s finally about to see the day. Debuting a few days ago, “New Dorp, New York” features Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig on vocals and comes out as one of the most unique and enjoyable tracks we’ve heard this year. The track revolves around a driving bassline and subtle beat while Koenigs’ vocals bounce over top coupled with noise swells and flurries of synth bleeps. It feels more like a VW track than SBTRKT, but some experimentation is expected after a year or so in the studio, and it’s ultimately a home run. Take a listen below and keep your ears peeled for more tracks off of Wonder Where We Land:

British DJ/producer/writer/all around dance music wizard has been busy recently working his magic into pop hits for the likes of Ellie Goulding, Betty Who, Ella Eyre, and more. It’s been a hot minute since we’ve heard a proper release of original material from him, but luckily he’s prepping his next release for Ministry of Sound. Lead track, “Now I Feel Good” is a joyful, high energy pop house track with a big vocal and shimmering synths. The production quality is sterling and just adds to the irresistible nature of the song. Take a listen below:
Cosmonaut Grechko has been championing feel good vibes for the last few years, and his latest release is some of his finest work yet. ‘Luv More’ is a two track release currently up for free download. “Luv” is an irresistible nu disco groover with summer vibes through the roof, and it’s balanced perfectly by “More,” a slow burner fueled by throwback R&B and glistening synths. Both tracks have beach party written all over them. Check it below:
Vancouver-based producer extraordinaire, Pat Lok, just dropped a remix of Olympic Ayres’s “Control.” In typical Pat Lok fashion, the track is a high energy piano house groover with plenty of feel good, ‘hands in the air’ vibes. Pat’s been on fire this year, and this is one of his hottest mixes yet. Listen below and make sure to grab the free download while you’re at it!
