In this column, I cover songs for you to nod your head to in the EDM scene [electronic dance music, not extra dancey music, for those not in the know].
Dr. Dre “Xxplosive” (∆ϾЄMΫ₮H Remix)
A very explosive dubby homage to the original by beatsmith Acemyth.
Hackman “Change My Life”
House musician Hackman who has featured on Gilles Peterson’s Bubblers Nine and GTA V’s Worldwide FM with his 2012 release Forgotten Notes has released a new EP entitled Change My Life and it is delicious garagey house. It just might change your music life.
Anushka “Never Can Decide”
Following up their debut EP, Yes Guess, from earlier this year, Brighton duo Anushka release this infectious debut track from their upcoming new album and the refrain will stay in your head for a while.
Kano “Puppets And Strings”
When Kano claims he puts East London on the map, he is not joking. The “poster boy in this grime s**t” is back on this track by The Zombie Kids and it is a huge choon.
The xx “Angels” (Confect Mix)
An absolutely enthralling and ethereal remix of “Angels” by The Confectionery.
