deadmau5 ft. Colleen D'Agostino, "Seeya" [Astralwerks]

Whether he’s making main stage electro, minimal techno or funky future house, deadmau5’s production chops never fail to impress. The latest single release off  “while(1<2)” trends toward the latter, sporting a crunchy bass line and glitchy embellishments alongside Colleen D'Agostino’s sultry vocals.

Michael Jackson, "Love Never Felt So Good" (Fedde Le Grand Remix) [Epic/MJJ]

The Dutch artist made the most of his opportunity to remix the first single off MJ’s second posthumous album “Xscape,” elevating the original with driving synthesizers and well-crafted melodic flourishes.

AMTRAC, "Undefeated" [Black Book/Armada]

The Kaskade-approved Kentucky producer continues his streak of standout future funk releases with the moody title track off his forthcoming “Undefeated” EP.

Snails & Antiserum, "Wild" [OWSLA]

Skrillex’s OWSLA imprint regularly showcases stylistic risk-takers. With a lurching percussive drop that sounds akin to brakes being hit in slow motion, Snails & Antiserum fit that bill on this twisted trap monstrosity.

Gui Boratto ft. Come and Hell, "Take Control" (Danny Daze Wormhole Dub) [Kompakt]

Miami native Danny Daze lends his foreboding techno touch to Gui Boratto’s latest minimal vocal masterpiece.
