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

Cashmere Cat ft. Ariana Grande - "Adore"

First unveiled on Grande's The Honeymoon Tour, this release finds the "Be My Baby" collaborators reuniting in spectacular fashion on a smooth trap-inspired single.

Sasha - "Vapourspace" [Last Night on Earth]

Sasha's first solo track in nearly four years is low-key and layered, slowly evolving from a minimal melodic groove into a bare-bones heartbeat breakdown punctuated by panned whispers.

Major Lazer & DJ Snake – "Lean On" [Mad Decent]

Pairing Danish singer MØ's catchy hook with plucked chords and a glitched lead, this new collaborative single marks a welcome mellow shift for the Jamaican outfit and French artist alike.

Nick Höppner - "Come Closer" [Ostgut Ton]

The most accessible track off the homegrown Berlin talent's latest album is also one of its most unique, layering its eponymous vocal beneath analog toms and sweeping synths.

Ellie Goulding – "Love Me Like You Do" (ALMOND & SAMME Remix)

Love it when relative unknowns turn in the best take on an oft-remixed song. ALMOND and SAMME hit the brakes to give Ellie's voice the breathing room it deserves beneath an understated trap beat.
