Each Friday, CODE curates a selection of the hottest new tunes in dance music. Take a listen for a fitting soundtrack to your weekend.

Lorde, "Tennis Court" (Flume Remix)

The track at the tip of everyone’s tongue this week made its debut in the Coachella limelight, but its ponderous synth-driven drop sounds just as powerful in home listening.

Coldplay – Midnight (Giorgio Moroder Remix) [Parlophone]

The Italian disco don reinvents Coldplay’s latest single by swapping Jon Hopkins’ gauzy atmospherics for percolating synthesizers and robotic French vocoder chants.

Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano – “One Life ft. Miri Ben-Ari” [DOORN]

The Dutch duo eschews festival drops in favor of a Grammy Award-winning featured violinist on a throwback euphoric progressive house tune.

Audien – “Hindsight” [Anjunabeats]

22-year-old progressive house/trance talent Audien delivers a sweeping original mix that showcases his production acumen and proven ear for anthemic melodies.

GusGus – Crossfade (Maceo Plex Remix) [Kompakt]

Ellum Audio’s captain lends his singular deep and dark touch to the Icelandic outfit’s new single, imbuing the track with a menacing melody and throbbing analog bass synths.
