Every week, we choose the latest electronic releases that you should know about. Here are four of our favourites:
1Jump remix by Armin van Buuren, Van Halen
Dutch DJ Armin van Buuren has made his remix of Van Halen’s iconic 1982 classic Jump available for streaming on all platforms. He first unveiled the dancefloor-ready rework during his set at the 2019 Ultra Music Festival in Miami. This version builds on the iconic synth riff with a pulsating dance beat and a sped up tempo.
2Black Balloons Reprise by Flying Lotus, Denzel Curry
Flying Lotus has dropped Black Balloons Reprise, a collaboration with Denzel Curry from the former’s new album, Flamagra. The beat of the song, Flylo revealed in a YouTube comment, is dedicated to fellow musicians Madlib and Egon.
3I Dreamt We Spoke Again by Louis The Child, Death Cab For Cutie
Chicago-based electronic duo Louis the Child have released a trap-infused remix of Death Cab For Cutie’s I Dreamt We Spoke Again. Futuristic bass layers and sonic fillers combine with Ben Gibbard’s vocals to give the track some vigour. The original version of the song was first released last July, as a single from the band’s 2018 album, Thank You For Today.
4Medicine (Steve Aoki from the Block Remix) by Steve Aoki, Jennifer Lopez
EDM producer Steve Aoki has dropped his take on Jennifer Lopez’s latest single, Medicine. The rework, which swaps French Montana’s original rap verse for a longer post-chorus dance breakdown, was released alongside a sultry video starring J Lo.
