Whenever a new Matt DiMona track ends up on my SoundCloud feed I’m always eager to give it a listen. There is something special about his aptly named “feel good house” brand that consistently keeps me coming back for more.  His new remix of “Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea” by Los Angeles based indie rock band “XYLØ” is no exception.  Matt DiMona effectively utilizes the gorgeous vocals and interlaces them with infectious chilled-out melodies, bass plucks, and pads.  Be sure to grab the free download here.

Zimmer - Coming of Age - 460

Our favorite Parisian, Zimmer, worked with Norwegian singer Emilie Adams for “Escape”. It’s the first track of his “Coming of Age” EP to be released July 10 on Roche Musique. Escape is deep, with warm tones and ethereal vocals, backed by a catchy piano line, before the drop speeds things up. We’re looking forward to hear the rest of the EP.

Marvin Gaye - Sexual Healing (SNBRN Remix)

SNBRN has finally returned after a nationwide spring tour with his followup to “Raindrops” released back in January with an inventive remix of Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing”. SNBRN has truly done it again on this one, taking an alternative angle when approaching the original song. Sampling Marvin Gaye’s lyric “just grab a hold of my body and mind” and looping it over a perfectly crafted punchy bass has created an undeniable festival house anthem. Be sure to stream the track below and head over to Beatport to grab a copy!

Bearson has been steadily rising artist in the indie dance sphere over the past year. The young Norwegian producer has seemingly transitioned from Tropical House to a vibey, synth heavy, and Anime-inspired sound. Following up his most recent remix of Tove Styrke’s “Ego”, Bearson returns with a collaboration from another buzzing female vocalist, Mark Johns. Titled “Imposter”, his new collaboration implements a mesmerizing arrangement of  keys, wavy beats and some Tropical elements that flow flawlessly under her sensual vocals. Check it out below!

I don’t know which part of Loud Luxury’s “All For You” I like more: Kaleena’s powerful vocals, Loud Luxury’s beautiful chords during the versus, or the deep bass heavy drop. “All For You” is the culmination of future and deep house creating a modern sound that tactfully pays homage to classic UK deep house. And what complements this vibe the best? Soulful, gospel-esque vocals from Kaleena Zanders, of course.  Stream the track below and keep your eye out for this rising Canadian duo.

Incorporating vocals from Chuck Inglish & Buddy, “Keeper” is full of strong summer vibes and a head bobbing beat.

Nothing Bee’s Knees touches is ever ordinary. A relatively new act, the dynamic duo kick off the countdown to their up-coming EP with a new single. Titled “Rumored To Be Real”, the original fuses various styles and genres into one. Featuring vocals from Marty Rod, the track floats into electric keys underlying hypnotic vocals which fuse into a groovy bass line. Harmonies and echoing give the intro an ambient vibe, only to drop into Chromeo-esque guitar chords and an almost robotic tone. Escaping into a fantasy world, it’s amazing these two have time to release new music while they kick off their nationwide tour with Kill Paris. The release marks first taste of their soon to be released Variety Pack EP, it’s safe to say that we can’t wait to hear the rest. Grab your Free Download of “Rumored To Be Real” here!
