Dubstep pioneers Adventure Club have teamed up with producer Crankdat and female songstress and DJ, Krewella for the energy filled track, Next Life. Elements of dubstep, future house and bass collide in this uplifting “post-dubstep” track with each artist bringing their unique flair to the mix. Opening with soft melodies that transition into air guitar like synths and layers of sound makes for an interesting composition.
Krewella delivers magical vocals over Adventure Club’s one-of-a-kind soundscape; one that feels familiar but is also different enough from the dubstep that made them popular in the first place. The drop and the bassier elements of the track seem to be Crankdat’s doing, but I could be dissecting it wrong. Regardless, the trio deliver a powerful hit that successfully changes up a familiar format.
Toronto based DJ, Robotaki, released his Anachronism EP, Friday. The EP is a thoughtful, deep fusion of house, funk and very unique ambient vibes any fan of “different” EDM should check out. Released through ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective, Robotaki’s sound here is deeply ambient, just like his label heads.
The opening track “Severance” combines melodic humming, downtempo vibes and rhythms and an IDM sound. By the end of the track, it completely flips, going from soft jazzy vocals to a glitchy snares and a hoppier sound adding a quick burst of energy.
The popular producer has remixed tracks from the likes of Daft Punk and Empire of the Sun and for good reason. The cuts “Meant to Be” and “Beaches” channel both those artists in their dreaminess and calming ambiance. This is beach music. Relaxed road trip music. The kind of stuff you’d want serenading the background of a peaceful lucid dream.
Sit back, relax and enjoy the soothing sounds of Anachronism.
Electronic artist 22Bullets releases this powerhouse track “Surya” featuring rmcm, an energy packed electro number that’s got an early Zedd sound to it. Signed to KSHMR’s Dharma label, the track released through Spinnin’ Records is a perfect anthem for Summer 2019.

Popular producer ATRIP has done it again with “Beat Like”, a house tune filled with bass, and eccentric yet coordinated aural madness. Familiar rhythm structures for the artist enjoy some bass house treatment while still retaining the zany sounds and samples that characterize ATRIP’s music. His songs are very Joyride-esque, you’d swear they were brothers. House vocal samples along with some trappy snares and distorted synths phase shift to a trap section in the latter half of the track.
Shufflers will love this one with it’s very snappy beat and easy to pick up rhythm.
Confession label’s Honey & Badger delight us with the infectiously jazzy house number, “French Fries”. Hosted by the Confession label, this cut is off the Belgian artists Grand Palace II extended play. Classic house vibes, bouncy piano chords and nostalgia inducing samples meld, with support from label mate kramder for a genuine take on the genre and its origins.
