[Downtempo Dance House:] Better Not (feat. Wafia) – Louis the Child.
Just in time for the summer is a cut with plenty of cool, tropical vibes. With a repeating reggae tin drum in the backbeat helping to create the dreamy, calm atmosphere of “Better Not” Wafia‘s vocals fit right in.
Louis the Child creates an interesting flow with this one, which initially resembles a contemporary pop song.
Though that may be true, by the first hook the track intrigues as the synths pick up. Then by the first “drop” you’ll find yourself humming and swaying to the beat and echoing the chorus of “You better not…” This is a great song for the season and not to be missed.
[Ambient Future House/Chill House:]
Robbie G & Cureton – Here’s My Heart
After all the heavy EDM posts I figured I’d get back to some melodic and relaxing music. Selected music always has great choices when it comes to these categories and Robbie G & Cureton’s “Here’s My Heart” is no different. Filtered vocals, ambient chords and synths and boom clap percussions characteristic of ambient and future house combine for a melodic and entrancing ride in electronic music.
[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.
[House/U.K. Garage:] Atrip – Apeshit
This is straight pure house music. British producer Atrip channels those early house vibes of the U.K., Chicago and other birthplaces of the scene in “Apeshit.” All the right elements are there, danceable beat, a siren that sounds like an ape going crazy, classic sounding house samples. You can’t go wrong here.
Update: the .mp3 has been properly updated to the final version.

[Chill House:] Twenty One Pilots – Stressed Out (Dave Winnel Remix)
Probably THE best remix of “Stressed Out” I’ve ever heard. I’m also a very big fan of the Andrew Lundeen remix, but Dave Winnel’s is far more remarkable. I could never hate on a remix of this song that repeats my favorite pre-chorus “My name’s Blurryface / And I, care what you think.” Be sure to check out both remixes if you’re a fan of the original!
[Chill House] [2016 Throwback:] Twenty One Pilots – Stressed Out (Andrew Lundeen Remix)
Popular UK pop band and the girls behind the second highest meme in views on my Youtube channel, Little Mix is one of the most popular pop groups in the world (as far as English music goes). Lorca & Jamie put the song “Touch” into heavenly dance-house status in their uplifting and epic remix. Pure house synths, nice effects and a pounding dancefloor-ready beat make this remix fresh, hot, you know, all that good shit.
Any song that can both make me feel nostalgic or that essence of pure pop music (the original, or think N*SYNC, Britney Spears in the 90s) and combine it with elements of today’s music is automatically a favorite in my book. Don’t miss this great remix!
