Philey Sanneh/FilterlessCo

Bassnectar performs during HARD Summer 2013 day 2 at LA State Historic Park in Los Angeles, CA.

Promise Land – Vega (Original Mix) [DOORN]

The Italian duo continue to bend big room rules with a finely crafted production that could slot into any main stage festival set this summer without falling prey to the cookie-cutter tendencies of its contemporaries.

Bassnectar ft. Rye Rye – Now

Bassnectar this week announced details and a June 24 release date for his forthcoming album #NVSB, offering up a free download of this frenetic bass-bumping track with spitfire vocals from Rye Rye.

Illangelo ft. Phlo Finister – Clockwork [Bromance]

The debut signee to Brodinski’s Bromance US imprint returns with a two-track EP set to drop next week. “Clockwork” is a minimal broken-beat tune that stands out on the strength of its quirky sample work and sublime vocals.

Claude VonStroke ft. Barry Drift – Sugar and Cinnamon (Justin Jay Remix) [dirtybird]

Dirtybird’s youngest denizen has also proven to be one of its most sonically diverse. After exploring new territory on his Culprit release last year, Jay returns to roost with low lurking bass and artfully chopped vocal work.

Flume & Chet Faker – Drop the Game (The Golden Pony Remix)

Brooklyn duo the Golden Pony give Flume and Chet Faker’s collaboration a funky and relaxed reinterpretation centered on smooth live saxophone.
