I.L.Y.A – Uniqueness Patrol: Your New EDM Earworm

Considering that I.L.Y.A went with “Uniqueness Patrol” for a track title for his latest single, it’s a pretty good job it was a prodigally unique offering of EDM. The Moscow, Russia-based artist and songwriter has an undoubtedly infectious approach when it comes to pairing sticky-sweet melodies with playful lyrics versed by vocals which add even more euphoria to the track. There aren’t too many EDM artists out there adding the personal touch to their music which is why I.L.Y.A’s style is so refreshing.

The European influence is audible as the track runs through elements of the 80’s and 90’s offering a hit of nostalgia. Any fans of Empathy Test, Mesh, VNV Nation and Covenant are sure to love what I.L.Y.A have cooked up with their latest single.

DJ Bokaj – Dragonfly: Progressively Pioneering EDM

Up and coming EDM artist DJ Bokaj has recently released his second single “Dragonfly”, it’s safe to say I haven’t heard a more progressive Electronica track in a long time.

As the beat kicks in you prepare for an archetypal Ethnic Electronica track, then the bass and the heavily dubbed kicks add an infinite amount of depth to the track as you switch between rhythms under the impression that DJ Bokaj set out to tease audiences with his unpredictable style. The midway switch up will absolutely floor you. Whilst the build up teases one hell of a drop, what follows is completely unpredictable and potentially leave you palpitating. Before I give away too many spoilers, why not have a listen to DJ Bokaj’s latest drop Dragonfly for yourself by heading over to Spotify now.

It may only be DJ Bokaj’s second single, but it’s already perceptible that with his pioneering vision when it comes to Electronica he won’t have a hard time standing out from the pretenders.

Mauway – For Something Real: EDM For the Hopeless Romantics

“For Something Real” is not a sound that you’d ever come to expect from an EDM track, so it’s safe to say the Dance producer Mauway created something pretty prodigal with his latest mix.

The prelude kicks off with a dreamy, ambient arrangement before kicking it up to a more resounding beat which would sound infinitely better blaring from club monitors. The track has everything that you’d expect from a dancefloor hit along with sweet, accessible vocals which flow in an R&B style. There may be a tad too much effect on the vocals, yet they flow synergistically with the beat expressing sweet offerings of romanticism to make sure For Something Real isn’t just a track which hit your eardrums, if the amount of soul poured into this track doesn’t make you feel something then it’s pretty safe to say that you’re dead inside.

HENRIKES – Happy: Neo-Classically Concordant EDM Pop

‘Happy’ is the debut single from the up and coming recording artist HENRIKES whose ability to create a soul-piercingly beautiful talents when it comes to creating ballads hasn’t gone unnoticed.

Whilst it takes a while for Happy to build up, once you’re safely in the melodic confines of the EDM Pop track you start to appreciate how expressively resounding the single truly is. Happy carries an almost primal beat which comes alive through the kicks of the 808 beats. After the first drop, Happy weaves through an orchestral alchemic chemistry to add an almost intangible amount of depth to the single. HENRIKES vocals offer just as much soothing catharsis as the instrumental progression of this track, and there is little I can say to prepare you for the concordance of this single.

Mark Richard – Ophelia: Subtly Euphoric Acoustic EDM

Whilst you may not have previously thought that tracks in the Acoustic Dance genre were a necessity for your playlists, you may think twice when you sink your teeth into Mark Richard’s latest single Ophelia.  Ophelia is just one of the stunning singles to be found on the Irish Acoustic Dance artist’s latest EP ‘Like Poetry’ in which the up and coming artist puts his experimentally ingenuity to the test. It will soon become clear why ‘Like Poetry’ was an apt name for his three track EP.

You may not expect much from the build up’s and drops in an acoustically composed tracks but they’re deep enough to leave your stomach in knots, the build ups are subtle, yet intricately compelling all the same. The rhythm which bleeds from the acoustic percussion created an earthy, almost primal beat which was fused with quintessentially Folk delicacy.

Kees – Get Away: A Bass-Heavy EDM Ballad

Get Away is the latest track by EDM Pop Songstress Kees, the single has already received in excess of 100k streams on YouTube since it’s release thanks to the instantly accessible yet resoundingly powerful sound. The vocal harmonies are flawless and the depth of the EDM beat is bordering on phenomenal. On top of that, you’re treated to overwhelmingly empowering vocals which hook you into the bass-heavy ballad.

There’s no denying that Get Away is a well-produced stellar track yet I would love to have hear the up and coming artist is a touch more originality behind the sound. That being said her already radio-ready sound is already gaining a significant amount of attention, and there’s little room to wonder why when it comes to her iridescently bright talent. I’m almost certain that this isn’t the last we’ve heard from Kees.

INANNA – Feels so Divine: Ethereal EDM Transcendence

The video to INANNA’s heartfelt latest single was dropped on August 9th. Even without the track title, you can sense the divinity which is intrinsically weaved into the fabric of INANNA’s lucidly uplifting single. The steady and essence-soaked EDM track may not sound like the most prodigally inspired soundscape as you move through the prelude, but once the momentum to Feels so Divine picks up, you’ll find yourself in the midst of a palpably high-vibe mix. The bewitching alchemy which lies behind INANNA’s vocals won’t fail to leave you under her rapture. INANNA created Feels so Devine to help listeners remember who we really are and what our worlds are centred around; pure love. After the track has glided to a seamless close it’s hard to argue with her logic.

You can check out the official music video to INANNA’s latest single Feels so Divine for yourselves by heading over to YouTube now. Even for those who have never felt the Electro genre was accessible could get behind the pure evocative aura behind this track.

Luminissi – ṨȠ☮Հℤ♭εℝ®ⅈ϶⑀ : Macabre Dream Wave EDM

ṨȠ☮Հℤ♭εℝ®ⅈ϶⑀ is just one of the tracks from Luminissi’s (Steven Oritz) 2018 album. It’s clear that when the Chicago based electronica artist set out to produce music, he did it with little intention to create just an assimilation of pre-existing sound. The overall tonality and essence of the track carries a macabre decadence, that might have had a little to do with the sampling of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Because instrumentally, the beat is vibrant and packs in plenty of euphoria that would sound just as good on the dancefloor as it does when it is blasting through your headphones.

You can check out Luminissi’s darkly twisted EDM hit yourself by heading over to SoundCloud now. You may want to add it to your playlists, there isn’t a chance in hell you’re remembering that track title. For the full experience of Luminissi’s Dub-drenched Acid House sound you check out all six tracks from the album to fully embrace the ecstatic dread which is carries in the soundwaves.

Yungpersh’s Latest Soulfully Rendered Feel Good Summer EDM Hit

Feel Good is the title track from Yungpersh’s (Luna LaRae) latest studio album which was released August 11th, 2018. The EDM artist packs a rhythmical punch with her digitally mastered renditions of soul.

There may have been a touch too much repetition within the progression of the track, yet in contrast to the sensual emotion which is poured into the mic, that fact almost becomes trivial. The feel-good vibe beat sits at a mid-tempo, to allow you to drink in the soft yet compelling waves of synths around the drum machines, but more importantly around the strength which Yungperch demonstrates is in the range of her vocal capacity. The emerging Texan artist has audibly taken the feel good vibe to the next level with her track with her personable approach to sound production. I can only imagine how well this track would go down on a dancefloor, I can imagine I only received a fraction of the hype through my headphones.

Richie Ravello – Cold Juice: As Filthy as EDM Electro Pop Gets

Where has Richie Ravello been hiding for all these years with their ability to create piercingly pioneering Electro Pop?! I was beginning to become under the impression that monotony is the only thing that Electro Pop had to offer. Yet with her single Cold Juice which was released back in 2017 Richie Ravello took the contemporarily archetypal sound and threw in some friendly 80’s synth that bring an immediate accessibility to the genre. And there’s plenty of texture left in the EDM beat to get fully immersed in electro firing of the drum machines around the chaotic counterbalance of digital effects. It’s not all too often that I find myself thrilled to be faced with an extended duration track, but my God, you never want Cold Juice to end as the EDM beats take full control over the mix and provide some of the best dancefloor beats I’ve heard created by an Electro Pop artist. You can expect a myriad of muddy drops thanks to the clouds of dub that float above the synth.
