Baauer & RL Grime, “Infinite Daps” [Priority Records]
“Epic” and “trap” don’t usually go together, but young princes Harry and Henry go for the grandeur with this hard-hitting percussive wonder, recorded for the upcoming “Dance (Red) Saves Lives 2” compilation.
HNNY, “Exactly” [Juno]
Unless you’re a devoted pop fan (think late ‘90s), the big reveal of this track might not hit you, but when it does, you’ll be wowed by how HNNY has matched the verve of the original’s vocal in a new and haunting style.
Datsik & DKS, “Deep End” [Firepower Records]
Before the bass drops (this is dubstep after all) comes a compelling vocal melody that carries throughout the track, complementing the weight of its depth.
The Swiss, “Kiss to Kiss” (Pyramid remix) [Kitsuné]
Pyramid’s remix slows down the disco to an erotic Francophilic bpm, recalling Justice, Dimitri, and your late ‘70s Parisian hotel fantasies.
Tha Trickaz, “No Rescue” [Figure remix]
Bloodying his fingers in the process, no doubt, Figure drives a multi-rhythmic stake through the heart of this bass banger.
