[Commercial with Cool Music:] My Favorite Things (Urban Noize Edit) – Nora Khalif
Commercials have increasingly turned to EDM to be featured in their adverts. Car companies have probably been sampling the electronic genre’s gems for quite some time, since the rise of dubstep almost a decade ago. Volvo stepped up and featured a remix of a traditional song (along the lines of Toyota’s Bippity Boppity Boo EDM Remix).
In a rare twist however, a full version of the remix was also released and uploaded to Youtube. Often when EDM is used in commercials, the song will be a snippet produced only for the commercial and a full version is never released. Volvo made a smart move featuring Urban Noize’s remix of the song which also has a full version. Enjoy it above!
[G House/Bass House:]
Hoes get low, shake that ass on the floor.
Bringing you a G-House banger (think the genre along the likes of BROHUG, Loge21, Dombresky and more) with a title that is true to its words. This song is going to give me nightmares of songs with bass that drops as hard and heavy as this. If you need something heavy going into 2018, don’t sleep on this one.
Skepta – Man (JAUZ Remix)
Bass House and EDM Producer Jauz went off on his remix of Skepta’s “Man.” With plenty of bass, UK Grime lyrics and flow, it’s a solid remix. This is probably one of the first few Skepta songs I have heard (and immediately liked). I have nothing against UK Grime or the UK scene, I’m just not heavy in it. After hearing this song however I might have to join the crew or the gang. *Salute
[Dance/Bass House:] Matt Nash – Run

[Future House:] Tchami – Godspell (feat. Taiki Nulight)
I’m the one and only dominator
As soon as I saw Tchami and Taiki Nulight, I clicked as fast as my god-damn mouse could. I didn’t need to be told an epic track would ensue.
Hit Future House DJ, Tchami has been dropping several new songs, part of his Revelations – EP. He lays down an absolute club banger with fellow house legend Taiki Nulight with “Godspell.”
Filtered vocal samples, bass waves deep enough to break your coffee table and futuristic synths create a truly godly track. The introduction leading to the first drop and even the outro make excellent transitory songs for those who DJ.
Check out “Godspeed” above and more from both artists below.

Intoxicate – Zhu
What can I say about Zhu? Other than that his music is mind blowing, Zhu has been making waves in the electronic scene for quite some time now. In one of his latest releases “Intoxicate” he reaffirms his rising position among electronic producers.
“Intoxicate” is a wild, deep journey through spacey sounds, trippy bass lines and incredibly catchy computer vocals. You can’t help but move and sway to the beat as it builds up and breaks down, or for the final chorus and trap snare reprise near the ending. As the computer repeats, “Intoxicate…exhilarate…stimulate…accelerate…” you find your body and mind wanting to do the same.
Do yourself a favor and check “Intoxicate” out, as well as more from Zhu including a great remix by Enda of his song “Faded.”
Illusion – Fynn
Get You Alone – Forbid
You already know what’s going down, when I get you alone
Cos’ you know what I came here to do when I get alone
Check out these two downtempo house tracks, courtesy of Selected.‘s Youtube Channel. The first, Fynn’s “Illusion” uses minimalist beats, haunting synths and soft-echoing vocals. The result is a semi-dark, groovy house number going above and beyond what you’d normally expect.
Next, Forbid’s “Get You Alone” has a more R&B feel to it, melded over a steady house beat and ping-pong synth noises in the background. Starting out relatively tame, with the chorus repeating, the song builds until it crescendos in it’s first drop inviting floor-shaking bass to the party. Simply funky, pulse-driving and at it’s core, exactly what good house music is supposed to sound like. Don’t miss both of these great tracks!
