Whenever by Shakira will forever be one of the greatest hits in pop history; it has spawned countless remixes, including the trancey revival by the San Francisco producer and DJ, BISH.
The up-and-coming artist and professional baseball player for the San Francisco Giants made the most of his time away from the field during lockdown by working on his production skills, which transpired from learning the piano at a young age. It is safe to say that the time locked away in his home studio was well spent on the basis of Whenever.
Bringing the heat from his hometown, Whenever is radiant under BISH’s touch, which is highly influenced by his idol. Kygo. We can’t wait to hear where he takes his melodic brand of dance music next.
You only need to look at the title of Not Me That’s Broken to know Audio Jacked isn’t your average electronica grifter. By building his big room house track around emboldening substance and soul; he allowed emotion to drive the momentum just as much as the monolithic basslines and powerful breaks that rhythmically knock you off-kilter before the hooks pick you back up again.
Jessie Wagner had her work cut out for her keeping the progressive pace; between her vocal dynamism and the clear connection to the lyricism, she was arrestingly triumphant.
This may only be Daniel Puddick’s third release as Audio Jacked but the experienced UK musician and songwriter has been enriching the EDM scene since the 90s, and his finger is just as firmly on the big melody pulse as it ever was.
Not Me That’s Broken is now available to stream via Spotify.
‘If I’m Yours’is the latest spacey hyper-pop hit from the up and coming electronica artist and producer, StartFromSKratch. After releasing his debut single, Took a Minute,in 2020, he’s proven that he’s got an insatiable hunger for success and the ability to curate an emotionally charged hit.
The Chicago-born artist looks far beyond electronic textures for inspiration. For the soul-awakening energy behind his sound, he looks to jazz, hip hop and RnB to put the authentic flair in his grooves.
If I’m Yours is an unadulterated drunk on love dance floor hit with the production quality to make a viral artist of StartFromSKratch. The female future pop vocals perfectly complement his sonorously sweet melodies. We can’t wait to hear the rest of his upcoming album. His album, The Heart Grows Fonder, is due for release on November 19th.

After making their 2021 debut, the electronica artist and producer Vagic has released their liberatingly sweet sophomore single, Free. Even with a few nods to Avicii, Vagic lives in no icon’s shadow with his enrapturing drops and ability to keep the momentum flowing right throughout the progressive electro house hit.
While the female vocals tempt hedonism, the instrumentals strip inhibition through the galvanising grooves that remind you how sweet letting loose and being free are. With a few more floor-fillers under their belt, we do not doubt that Vagic’s rise from the underground is imminent.
Washington DC hailing artist and producer Zazen made the basslines even deeper in his remix of the world-renowned Dutch DJ and EDM producer FAULHABER’s seminal single, Go Ahead Now. The original was a fine feat of Euro-dance; under Zazen’s production, the track became infinitely more captivating with the ominous layers of reverb over dark tones and the breaks that became infinitely more extreme.
Since 2012, the independent artist, Zazen, has become renowned for his dynamic style that fuses future house with hard kicks and clean bass lines. For anyone who likes their EDM on the filthier side, you’ll find plenty of playlist stapes in his collection of original tracks and remixes.
You can stream Zazen’s remix of Go Ahead Now via SoundCloud.
Ahead of his upcoming EP, Nottingham, UK-based artist and producer, RICKY created plenty of appetite for his modernistic, future bass mixes with the release of his single, Absentee Landlord.
With angsty vocal samples thrown into the complex layers of pulsing indietronica around the future pop female vocals, you can’t help but be endeared by the personality on offer here. Although, you won’t quite be able to pinpoint at which moment your rhythmic pulses became interconnected with the trappy bass-soaked beats and hazy synth-driven melodies.
Before making his solo debut, RICKY was one-half of the electro-punk outfit Battlecat; the duo toured alongside Two Door Cinema Club, Future Islands, Hadouken and plenty more before disbanding due to personal commitments.
With his solo project, Battlecat fans are sure to be appeased, but there’s an inexplicable ingenuity to his recent material that is sure to leave you hooked.
Absentee Landlord is now available to stream via SoundCloud.
‘Feeling Alive’ is just one of the recently released euphorically alchemic mixes from up and coming artist and producer Dilemma. Future Bass fans couldn’t ask for a more entrancing soundscape to immerse themselves within.

Dilemma found a way to leave you feeling like what it means to be human is layered amongst the disco, techno and future house textures. We can’t wait to hear what is in the pipeline.
Feeling Alive is now available to stream via SoundCloud.
Dark, brooding electronica with a serious hip hop influence, all speeding beats, thumping piano chords, and layered, effected vocals, ‘The Truth’ from ADT is bass-heavy electronic pop with a menacing undertone; if Dre and Eminem had produced Avicii, it might sound something like ADT on ‘The Truth’.
There’s an obvious Marshall Mathers quality to the vocal here, mixed up with a very techno 140 BPM drum pattern and rising instrumental section. It’s a proper, classy dancefloor anthem with a catchy chorus and a kick to the drop, atmospheric and immediately comfortable at the same time.
Electronic artist and producer Sable_Neon has released their latest euphoria-laced single “Behind Bars”, which captures the global mood in 2020 by alluding to the scarcity of safety and security through lyrics which resound over expansive Trancey beats.
Any fans of James Bay, Gotye, The Lumineers, Avicii and Hozier will definitely want to delve into the compelling release which was orchestrated to soothe the soul while simultaneously charging you with adrenaline through entrancing Future Pop beats.
Sable_Neon may share similarities with the aforementioned artists, but there’s a magnetic sense of pioneering authority on offer in Behind Bars. Considering that each of Sable_Neon’s releases is created by transforming thought into emotion and then feeding it into music that’s produced to heal, that comes as no surprise.
Make Me Feel is the latest trancey drop to be released by EDM artist and producer Fading Echoes which won’t fail to invoke feelings of euphoria and reawaken the nostalgia of summers past.
It’s the perfect aural hit for anyone who has felt a little jaded. Given that it is 2020, I can imagine that will be a lot of us.
The tonally exotic single wasn’t orchestrated to be accessible and archetypal. It was constructed to leave you mesmerised by the unpredictable progressions as the soundscape flirts with a myriad of different genres. From Future Pop to Indie to Acid House to Electronic Rock, you’ll find it all within the finely crafted unforgettably distinctive mix.
You’ll be able to check out Make Me Feel from August 28th via the artist’s SoundCloud.
