Meet Bames: two Texans barely out of their teens, BBQing beat symphonies out of clattering percussion, drunken laser synths, and genuinely disrespectful levels of low-end whomp. DRTY BWTY is their beast of a debut EP, out today on iTunes, Beatport and all other fine digital music services.

Swedish rave genius Carli has been destroying clubs for years: first as the curly half of remix superstars (and Robyn collaborators) Savage Skulls, then as one of the mad scientists behind Crookers’ collabapalooza Dr Gonzo, and lately with his own wonderfully out-of-control solo productions.
His brand new “Look Up” is the latest evolution for Carli’s sound, welding throwback diva vocals and piano stabs onto hypermodern, stadium-worthy laser beam beats – a “secret weapon” that has had fans salivating ever since A-Trak and other big dog DJs began spinning the demo in their festival sets around the globe. B-side “Mind Control” keeps the time machine set on stun, with chopped up breakbeats and voodoo ray vibes mashing up against Carli’s signature big-room kicks and ecstatic synth riffs. These two tracks make the “Look Up” single on Fool’s Gold a DJ must-have, and a guaranteed party-starter in any decade. Get it now on Beatport!

The brothers of Sweet Valley fall even deeper down the beat rabbit hole on Jenova, their follow-up to Stay Calm and Eternal Champ. The duo’s beautifully dusted music takes a darker direction on Jenova, but their knack for untamed, unexpected textures (guitar feedback, girl group harmonies, trap hi-hats, Rambo noises) and ADD spirit keep the Sweet Valley vibes as lively as ever. Trip out to this…

The endless struggle between man and machine finally gets the soundtrack it deserves thanks to Funkin Matt, whose stomping, massive “I Wish” is a cyborg anthem for the ages. Get it now on Beatport!
Already a staple of festival sets from A-Trak, Crookers, Nicky Romero and many more, the song’s metallic grooves and yearning vocal (“I wish I was a robot… I wish I could fly…”) smash together to create perhaps the finest track yet from this Oslo up-and-comer. B-side”Rasp” is just as electric, with big room chords cascading over a massive, robo-voice bassline. Plug in and play ‘em out…
Preview the two new tracks (and more FM goodies) on his recent “I Wish” promo mix.
