New Music Friday is intense. Hundreds of songs drop from artists around the world, and you're supposed to somehow find the best ones. It's fun work, but it's time-consuming -- so we at Billboard Dance want to give you a hand. Each week, we sift through the streams and dig in the digital crates to present absolute must-hears from the wide breadth of jams.
This week, we celebrate a re-release of Stardust's French Touch classic "Music Sounds Better With You," but we also welcome Australian future bass pioneer Wave Racer with big applause. The king of sugar pop reclaims his crown with "Auto," his first original release in four years. If his effervescent influence resonates with you, be sure to check out Yung Bae's new LP Bae 5. We're proud to call Yung Bae a Billboard Dance Ones to Watch alumnus, and so is Codes who launches a label today with his Baby EP.
Meanwhile German house duo Booka Shade hit the summer hard with a four-track EP called Understanding, and our lineup finishes with a killer collab from Chris Lake and Lee Foss, as well as a different shade of trance from Ruben de Ronde.
