APRIL'S HIGH FIVE

EASTER IS UPON US! BUNNY HOP DOWN TO ONE OF THESE...
Baptême (Lucky Blue Eyes Version – Agoria Retouch) - Agoria - Kompakt

Agoria’s latest single is a brooding and soulful affair, its piano and string samples gifting it a certain earthy charm. Explore the B-side though and you’ll find something even more extravagant, with DJ Tennis, Luke Jenner and Agoria himself delivering a rework that boosts the melodic elements, adds a stunning new vocal and launches the original into dizzying new emotional altitudes. An already great record becomes something even more spectacular.  

Bodied EP - Gunkst - Terrorhythm

Never a label to churn out the same old stuff, Terrorhythm releases material that often exists on the fringes. Denver resident, Gunkst, personifies this perfectly, delivering a kinetic blend of classic American EDM with plenty of trap and footwork notes, but with blurs of dubstep and some nicely leftfield vibrations.

F*ckin' Huge - Cryogenix - Big & Dirty

A record for the EDM massive with a bit more of an edge. ‘F*ckin' Huge’ kicks off with more of a slamming progressive vibe, before the chorus welcomes in a few of those recognisable main stage melodies, before the white noise ramps up again after the drop. ‘F*ckin' Huge’ has more bite than the standard cheap thrills you’d associate with the EDM sound, and with the likes of Guetta showing support, it’s further evidence the main stage is toughening up a little.

Crystal Cowboy - Drew Lustman - Planet Mu

Jettisoning his Falty DL pseudonym, Mr Lustman plunges deep into a new 11-track album with renewed vigour and freedom. Explorations through d&b, hardcore, electro, hip-hop, jazzier realms and dub techno abound, and much like contemporaries such as Andy Stott, Djrum, Luke Vibert, manages to create a unique space full of sonic stories, vibes and magic that keeps you going back. Superb.
