CODE Picks of the Week: Kaskade, Cyril Hahn, Felix Cartal and More


Mark Owens

Each Friday CODE presents the hottest new tunes in dance music. Listen to these cuts and have a dance party this weekend.

Kaskade & Thomas Sagstad vs. Morning Parade, “Under The Stars”

Self-releasing is the way of the future, at least it is for multiple Grammy-nominee Kaskade who gave away this big room tune for free this week while he is “in between” labels, as he says himself.

Cyril Hahn, “Getting There” [PMR]

It’s spring at last and with every beat, a little more chill melts on Hahn’s latest, revealing a pool of synth house slickness that is primed to splash around in.

Felix Cartal featuring Chloe Angelides, “Ready For Love” [Dim Mak]

Last year, Cartal may have stumbled upon the fact that he can write pop-hook-laden bangers and this year he’s not shy about doing it on purpose, showing he is ready and willing follow in Calvin Harris’s footsteps.

Anna Lunoe & Treasure Fingers, “Bad MF” [Fool’s Gold]

Two of Fool’s Gold’s click-loving producers burnish their badness by re-teaming on this tech house treat, stocked with plenty of sampled surprises along the way.

Shakira featuring Rihanna, “Can’t Remember To Forget You” (Fedde Le Grand remix) [RCA/Sony]

Before all the pop stars got EDM producers to make their tunes, the dance remix was a separate, but vital, part of their promotion. Fedde Le Grand makes a case for why it still is.
