On the basis of Come Back to Me alone, innovation-hungry dance fans will want to save a spot on their radar. He has exactly what it takes to be bigger than Wave Racer, Vanic and Flume.

BISH gave Shakira’s ‘Whenever’ a trancey rework in his luminous remix

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.

Stream BISH’s remix of Whenever via SoundCloud.

UK producer, Audio Jacked has revealed another soulful floor-filler with Not Me That’s Broken, featuring Jessie Wagner

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.

Zight – Number One featuring Adam Christopher: Euphoria-Fuelled EDM

Zight’s latest progressive house hit & music video featuring Adam Christopher has already racked up in excess of 155k streams since the premiere on March 24th. The F1 Championship may not seem the most likely inspiration for a vibey summer EDM hit. But the Hong Kong-born, London based producer succeeded in fusing his love for music and F1 in the single, which is just as panoramic and palpably euphoria-driven as the professionally shot video.

Even with the inspiration behind the single, there’s just enough ambiguity in the lyrics to transform Number One into your ultimate summer EDM playlist staple. It’s all but impossible to tire of the effortlessly radiant energy in Number One. Naturally, we can’t wait to hear what comes next.

Vagic has released his liberatingly euphoric sophomore single, Free.

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.

Goshok subverts summer pop stereotypes with his latest single, Hold it Down, featuring Darren Fewins.

Treat your synapses to a shot of serotonin with Czech music producer, DJ and songwriter Goshok’s latest dance-pop single, Hold it Down, featuring vocals from Darren Fewins. Which specific EDM umbrella the visceral beats fall under may be hard to discern, but what is strikingly evident in the ebbs and flows of the single is the ardent passion within it.

Instead of crafting your average pop anthem that obsesses over skin-deep connections, Hold it Down delves into a sincerer pool of affection. The euphoria-packed track celebrates unconditional love and reminds the listener that no one is too idiosyncratic in the presence of true love. That will quite literally be music to plenty of people’s ears.

Get your euphoria fix with MAR1’s alt-electronica single, Someone Else

If it has been a while since you’ve encountered an uplifting track that does what it says on the tin, delve into MAR1’s hyper-pop dance track, Someone Else, which uses distorted vocals that find ubiquitous synergy with the beats.

Someone Else was never orchestrated to fall in line with contemporary trends or style. The Alexandria, Egypt-hailing producer and DJ thrives when his electronic craft knows no stylistic bounds. Experimental it may be, but by no means is MAR1’s evocative sound niche. The artist has counted plenty of successes in his career, including joining big-name acts at festivals such as Firefly Music Festival. Something tells us that MAR1 won’t stop there, considering that his potential leaves us with as much hype as his energetic sound itself.

For the sake of your serotonin levels, safe space on your radar.

Someone Else is now available to stream via Spotify.
