Cutting Shapes
5. Cutting Shapes – Don Diablo

Don Diablo – Facebook | SoundCloud

When you’ve had a tough week, dealing with problems in life, whatever it is, sometimes you just need to escape and cut some shapes. I’ve listened to Don Diablo for years now, and this is probably one of my favorite tracks that he has released recently.

Inside of me club mix
4. Inside Of Me (Club Mix) – My Digital Enemy

I’ll be honest, I have only recently begun to find my love for My Digital Enemy. I started following them this Spring, and have been impressed by their releases over the past few months. They’ve grown their two labels Zulu and Vudu alongside their ascent into the starlight, and most recently have teamed up with Insomniac Records as well. “Inside Of Me” is a great track that is both fun and danceable house track that also features some great vocals too! Keep an eye on these guys in the rest of 2016!

3. Shangri-la – Joaquin Limon

Look, I’m a sucker for 2011-era trance tracks. While this was released just two days ago, it has already made its way into my collection. “Shangri-la” features serious undertones, and a dynamic sound that is addictive. You may have heard of Joaquin Limon from our past MLA Artist Spotlight on him, but if you haven’t he is definitely an artist that you should be watching out for to blow up in the near future. I love his sound and think he will be doing some great things soon.

REZZ Purple Gusher
2.  Purple Gusher – REZZ

REZZ – Facebook | SoundCloud

“Purple Gusher” is a track off REZZ’s latest EP that seriously brings the heaviness that I have fallen in love with. A hypnotic bass line puts me in a trance and brings me to a different zone. Whether I’m seeing her at CRSSD Festival or just listening in the car, REZZ has impressed with the lead-in track for her ‘Something Wrong Here’ EP.

 Beneath With Me
1. Beneath With me – Kaskade x Deadmau5

After waiting for the official release of this track for so long, it was a pleasant surprise to see this get dropped for our listening pleasure last week. I absolutely love the track, and while it is not one that is as long as “I Remember” or “Move For Me”, it definitely brings a heavier vibe with it. I enjoyed the accompanying music video and can tell that this track is going to be played out and remixed a ton over the next few months by artists all over the scene. The vocals from Skylar Gray are fantastic, and I can only hope that more is coming from Kaskade in the future that is bringing this same vibe.
