Francis Mercier – Can You Love Me (Original Mix)


I had no idea who Francis Mercier was until I was scrolled past his newest track, “Can You Love Me,” in my email this morning, and boy, am I glad that I did. Summer is almost coming to a close, but there’s no doubt in my mind that this track will be setting dance floors on fire well into the winter – it’s that good. The hypnotic vocals are perfectly paired with a booming bass line and thumping kicks that give the track a deep groove.

With support from the likes of Diplo, Oliver Heldens, and Dillon Francis, it’s clear that the New York-based producer will be one to keep an eye on in 2016.

VÉRITÉ – Wasteland (Gabe Almeda Remix)


Progressive house is a genre that is almost as old as electronic music itself. All the hits I heard growing up were by progressive house legends like Kaskade and Tiesto, and progressive house has been one of the most accessible and popular genres in electronic music, especially in the last few years. I hadn’t heard a truly stellar progressive house track lately, until I came across Gabe Almeda’s remix of VÉRITÉ’s “Wasteland,” and I was blown away. The Philly native flips “Wasteland” on its head, infusing the track with roaring synths and pounding breaks that complement VÉRITÉ’s soft croons. Almeda has made his remix of “Wasteland” available as a free download, so get it here.

Royal – Cycles Remix EP


This is easily one of the biggest projects for the month of July. Royal, Jai Wolf and Hotel Garuda are 3 of the most promising tastemakers in the upcoming scene, so to see them come together all on the same project – clearly it’s big. After dropping a new original tune last week, Royal dropped his Cycles EP (Remixed) with a handful of great new edits of two of his most popular singles off the EP. The stand out remix to me is Jai Wolf’s – not that I’m knocking the other three AT ALL because their also great, but JW’s is just on another level of sound design. Pitch shifting, creating new soundscapes, all the while not over-doing his remix so you still have the original in the back of your head, he seriously murked this edit. Do yourself a favor and stream these 4 new Royal remixes below now, they are all spot on. Enjoy!

Yeah Yeah Yeahs x A-Trak – Heads Will Roll [DiscoTech Remix]


DiscoTech is pretty well known for their remixies, but I think their newest release to date is the best flip they’ve put out thus far. Taking on A-Trak’s timeless “Head’s Will Roll” remix and making it your own AND dope is no easy task – but these guys crushed it! Lacing it with some funky House influence then changing it up to a laid back trap sound, this one changes it up quite a bit but at the end of the day all that matters is that this remix bangs and is well worth the listen. Listen to the huge new “Heads Will Roll” below and be sure to grab your copy while your at it!

Watermät & MOGUAI – Portland

Spinnin’ Records never fails to deliver every summer’s biggest hits. This time around, artists Wätermat and MOGUAI join forces and release an all-new, exciting track in which their remarkable styles are brilliantly fused together.

“Portland,” released on the Spinnin’ Records’ Soundcloud yesterday, features a distinctive arrangement of sounds that experiments with two very different music styles. Wätermat’s production structure and signature groovy sound is uniquely crafted with the progressive, electro style of German music genius MOGUAI, delivering a more abrasive bass line and a heavier sound. The track transports you to the Pacific Northwest with its captivating, ocean-like melody, building on a cheery sound and soft vocals that are combined with a high-energy drop. Check it out above and stay tuned for the release on August 14th.
