“Losing You” from Ephixa and Laura Brehm is a cosmic journey through space, time, and progressive vibes.
Losing You – Ephixa and Laura Brehm [Progressive House:]
It’s hard to go wrong with Monstercat as the depth and variety of the label certainly has something for everyone. “Losing You” will scratch your progressive house itch while providing some very spaced-out IDM vibes.
Canadian producer James Leusink, better known as Ephixa, and Monstercat songstress Laura Brehm helm this one, and it’s definitely one to get lost in.
Brehm’s vocals set the tone for a journey through space, time, making one contemplate the inner fabrics of the universe, or something damn near it. Underground beats coalesce into a cosmic wonderland worth checking out.

Malaa comes thru with the dirty g-house tune “OCB” combining grimey bass lines and gangsta rap samples.
[Bass/House:] OCB – MALAA
The god of bass himself, Malaa is back at it with another banger. The Confession label legend of dirty bass and g-house does what he does best on “OCB” creating a dirty little number meant to reinvigorate dance floors.

Confession label House producer, Kramden, creates a nostalgia inducing house track, “Gusher.”
[House:] Gusher – Kramder
House producer and Confession label DJ, Kramder, released a track for pure House heads. “Gusher” is a modern throwback to the essential house of the late 90s and early 2000s. Vibrant sounds and samples amid a steady BPM that keeps the dance floor groovin’. Both light and not too serious; the essence of what house music is/was about. Be sure to check it out!
Today’s throwback post focuses on Canadian DJ, Kaytranada, whose infectious sound causes listeners to take notice the moment they hear one of his songs. I’d first heard of him around the time I initially began to listen to and research Future House music several years ago. Kaytranada’s music could be called Future Lounge. It’s never really high energy or insane, and it works extremely well. He makes music you’d listen to at the beach, sailing over the ocean blue, or lounging on a tropical island.
Swiss DJ, EDX’s “We Can’t Give Up” is a light-hearted, upbeat dance number great for cooldown sessions or more downtempo sets.

EDX Performing “We Can’t Give Up” at Imagine Music Festival 2018
Girl, you’re something special,
And you know I want you,
You’ve been on my mind all the time,
and you know, that we can’t give up
This one’s a little late, but as I was clearing media off of my phone I realized I never uploaded many videos of EDX’s show at Imagine Music Festival. I’d be doing myself a disservice if I didn’t highlight this great track, “We Can’t Give Up.”
Swiss DJ, EDX is known to delve into the more melodic and big-room style of dance music that is very emotionally moving, soothing and self-contemplative. This track is no different. Not taking itself incredibly serious and not a high energy banger, this song is more soothing to the soul and one you dance carefree to, swaying to the beat or shuffling on time. It’s important to have artists that stick to this style of music in an era where others are always looking for the “hardest” song or drop.
Each style has a time and place and this song is a great cool down track or addition to a more downtempo set. Look below for more music from EDX and links to his profiles.
