On the new track "Queen Mary," producer Bradley Will's electronic minimalism provides the tension. The voice of Austin, Texas' Francine Thirteen provides the searing, provocative beauty: “What good is your crown / With your heart on the ground? / Oh Mary…."
Dreamy and absolutely dancy, "Clicks In" by Caralis marks a departure for Dan Frau, best known as leader of UK alt-rock band Anison. The electronic-pop sound, crafted by producer John Merriman, falls and rises somewhere between Muse and Broken Bells.
Tom Cascino (aka Broke for Free) calls his imaginative remix of Iron and Wine's "Naked as We Came" a "nostalgic" project. While the the music of Sam Beam always inspires remembrances of things past, the forward-looking (and sounding) remix bodes for more beautiful moments to come for the Oakland, California electronic music maker.
Remixed in sparkling, snapping fashion by Autograf, "All We Need" by Seattle electropop duo ODESZA hits the dance floor with bent and bright hooks.
A clacking, bumbing, glitching, body-moving cover of…Fleet Foxes? No, you haven't fallen down the mashup rabbit hole. You've just found EDM pop artist Goldroom (aka Josh Legg from Los Angeles) and his surprising take on "Mykonos."
Dub reggae meets psychedelic synth pop, and the two produce instant fireworks through the waves of Danish dark wave on "Going Out" by Dinner (singer and producer Anders Rhedin).
The ‘90s may be long gone and Top 40 radio may be awash with cookie-cutter EDM tracks, but Aphex Twin keeps his influentially artistic take on electronic music alive with his latest album, “Syro.”
Refusing to give in to current EDM trends, Joel Zimmerman (aka deadmau5) crafts an inward-facing album of bare progressive house with "while (1<2)."
Dutch producer, Martyn, synthesizes his way into the minds and souls of listeners with his third full-length album, "The Air Between Words."
Justin Timberlake isn't the easiest (or even most likely) artist to cover, especially a newer track and especially in an ambient electronic style, but Coldair, aka Warsaw-based multi-instrumentalist Tobiasz Biliński, takes JT's "Strawberry Bubblegum" into a whole new moody pop realm.
