5. Rush Over Me (feat. HALIENE) – Seven Lions x Illenium x Said The Sky
This song is incredibly beautiful and merges the styles of Seven Lions, Illenium and Said The Sky all together in one package. With supporting vocals from HALIENE, this song is sure to put you in your feels – in a good way.

4. Cinema x Oui (Edit) – Benzi x Skrillex x BryceM88 x Jeremih
The artist list on this track is incredibly long – this bootleg by Benzi (1/2 of TWRK) and Bryce M88 takes the vocals from Skrillex’s remix of Benny Benassi’s “Cinema” and puts them on top of the song “Oui” by R&B singer, Jeremih. The result is an incredibly smooth mashup that was actually debuted by Skrillex in his recent Boiler Room set in Shanghai. While the bootleg may be looked at as a complete disgrace to this classic vocal, I personally enjoy it due to the creativity behind it!

3. Come Down – Chris Lorenzo
Chris Lorenzo is probably one of the most underrated house producers within the scene right now. His production is always complex, groovy and crisp. His newest one “Come Down,” taken from his upcoming album, begins with a vocal sample about the fluidity of water and then builds up into a masterfully done jackin’ house drop. You won’t be able to sit still listening to this!
2. Throwin’ Elbows – Excision x Space Laces
It makes me happy to see someone like Excision still thriving after all of these years in the electronic music scene. Arguably, one of the best times for dubstep as an entire genre, I’m sure he is happy about it all. His newest tune with Space Laces titled, “Throwin’ Elbows,” sticks to his trademark style of producing. Filled with sharp, metallic noises with a heavy bassline this song is incredible, period. Further, it makes me excited for Excision’s upcoming album, “Virus.”
1. OK! – Jauz x San Holo
Being a Jauz and San Holo fan, I’ve heard this song as an ID for quite some time. Thus, I was extremely excited when I saw it got a release date on Monstercat. The song brings together the catchy house production of Jauz with the trademark future bass sound that San Holo has crafted for himself. The result is a flurry of wubs, bass, and chord progressions set among some vocals. The song was definitely worth the wait and may go down as one of the best collaborations of the year so far.
