Code Picks of the Week: Guy Gerber & Diddy, Oliver Heldens & More
Each Friday, CODE curates a diverse selection of the most noteworthy new tunes in dance music. Take a listen for a fitting soundtrack to your weekend.
Guy Gerber & Diddy – My Heart
This curious collaborative pairing unveiled the first track off their forthcoming album “11 11.” Gerber provides Diddy with a pensive and minimal canvas to work with, and the latter’s distorted croons and easygoing flow have never felt more relevant.
Oliver Heldens – Koala [Spinnin’]
The 19-year-old rising Dutch talent has returned with a festival-ready single with a punchy bass progression that follows in “Gecko’s” footprints.
Danny Daze – Flange [Ellum Audio]
Miami native Danny Daze continues his hot streak of genre-defying productions with this hypnotic and unpredictable percussion-driven offering on Maceo Plex’s label.
Marc Faenger – Origin [Minus]
The Düsseldorf native makes his debut on Richie Hawtin’s Minus imprint with a stripped-down 6 track outing. The title track features a memorably minimal bass line and carefully crafted atmospheric sample work.
Animal Trainer – Calumet [Katermukke]
Twanging guitars and bumping bass intertwine before a lush vocal breakdown on this Switzerland duo’s latest Katermukke EP.
