Coming in hot with the second single from their Variety Pack EP, Bee’s Knees returns with “Keeper”. Following the release of their indie inspired track “Rumored To Be”, the Los Angeles duo’s latest takes on a more AC Slater-esque, bass route. Incorporating vocals from Chuck Inglish & Buddy, “Keeper” is full of strong summer vibes and a head bobbing beat. Consisting of Aaron Spiro and Adam Novodor, it’s amazing these two started their careers only a year ago after graduating from Icon Collective. Currently on tour with Kill Paris, check to see if Bee’s Knees is coming to your town. Grab a free download here!

It’s always nice to slow things down a bit. Alina Baraz & Galimatias know this all too well, and have been blowing minds with this last release. This sex pot of a track is called “Can I,” and might be the most sensuous track you hear all week. Ethereal vocals and an almost-haunting sample asking to “undress you” transform this track into a little something extra. Alina Baraz & Galimatias absolutely smashed this one, it’s available on the 28th to cop.
Production trio Autograf continue to keep releasing bombs. After an immense tour of playing both live and DJ sets, it would seem that its back to the lab. Their latest work is a remix for Alesso and Roy English and their track “Cool.” The track is and easy-listening house piece. Tropical-esque notes work well with the vox sampling, and everything is very cohesive with the melody. Follow along with Autograf as they keep crushing track after track.
Aaron Jackson and Nite Records have teamed up to drop a hell of a 3-track EP. ”Be A Better You” features a handfull of tunes from the Oregon-based producer, each just as heavy as the next. Quick jackin’ style characterizes each of these tracks, but each has its own quirky bass arrangement. The vox samples are short and sweet, just enough to keep your head in the game until the fluttering synths in “I Don’t Need You” take you to another place. Look out for Aaron Jackson, as these tracks are coming to burn uo a dancefloor near you.
