[Premiere] Elseware – Drifted

New Elseware!

You may remember Elseware from their whimsical, almost Bleachers-esque debut “Anxious.” The duo now has a follow-up track that I think is a much better song. “Drifted” has this darkness and depth and heat to it that was missing from “Anxious.” It feels like a more fully realized track with its beat switches, rap verse, and seamless transitions — almost like the making of it was a project in itself.

I met you freshman year, I was too afraid to talk to you.

SAINT WKND – Positive Vibe


When I think Germany, I don’t necessarily think “bouncy, awesome beats made simultaneously for sunny days and late nights at the club. This fresh young producer fell into my lap (inbox) recently and I’ve honestly been killing his remixes ever since. Anyone who remixes Chet Faker is good in my books, basically. SAINT WKND is killing it these days.

Another good aspect of this tune is that you can purchase it now via Beatport – throw this heater into your DJ set for sure.

“I wrote that track in the early spring days in 2014. I was messing around with my synth and damn. It just went with the flow. I really loved the message of  positive vibes ya know?“ This sound is not meant to be dead serious. It’s a sound reflecting on those beach days, just simply having a good day.

Years and Years – Worship


British electronic trio Years and Years are reviving 90s house one great track at a time. Coming of the heels of their last single, “King,”  Y&Y announced their forthcoming album titled “Communion” and also shared their latest cut dubbed “Worship.”

“Worship” finds Olly once again crooning about love, melding together religious themes and romantic desires. Of course, it’s all backed by an infectious beat with soaring synths and poppy production.
