Nightwave bosses up on her debut Fool’s Gold EP, Wavejumper. Beloved selector and seasoned UK producer Maya Medvesek has built a peerless rep conjuring what Mixmag calls “pure dance floor euphoria”— a combustible mix of grime, footwork, techno, and anything else with a kickdrum that won’t quit.

With the powerful, self-assured Wavejumper, Nightwave puts her manifesto for a better body-moving universe into action—a bass utopia where futuristic collabs with Rye Rye, Rell Rock & Chippy Nonstop pop and gyrate alongside wavy, deconstructed club instrumentals that rank among Nightwave’s heaviest work yet.

BOSCO pulls spring into focus with her yearning new single “Castles.” Whether she’s channeling futuristic R&B (the Boy EP, featured in HBO’s hit Insecure), neon dance vibes (her house-inspired Treasure Fingers collaborations “Names” and “Myne,”) or straight up club bangers (the acclaimed Girls In The Yard mixtape with Speakerfoxxx), BOSCO’s distinct vision always cuts through like nothing else. “Castles” is her latest and sharpest hybrid; backed by ATL duo St. Beauty and a moody, cut up beat from Fool’s Gold label-mate Sammy Bananas, BOSCO weaves a tale of second (and third) chance relationships gone the way of sandcastles in the tide. She turns heartbreaks to hip-shakes… and with an adventurous new EP on the way, we’ll be listening (and dancing) to BOSCO’s stories all year round.

Grab your Wayfarers and cruise out to this.
Promnite is bringing the love back to club music. For all their futuristic thump and sonic precision, the tracks on his Snake Charmer EP are wonderfully, messily human. This Cali-via-NYC producer (and co-founder of LA’s beloved Athletixx DJ collective) eschews run-of-the mill bangers for the bittersweet turn up of “Gunsmoke,” featuring Denzel Curry, Nell, J.K. The Reaper and Twelve’len, and short-story worthy clubland tales on “Ride Around” with Adam Vida; meanwhile, Prom’s smooth stepper “Call Me” with Mark Johns nuzzles up against the space-age trunk rattle of “Cruise’n USA,” featuring LaDonnis. This ain’t no Soundcloud special — Snake Charmer is a four-track dive into life itself, showcasing the collaborative songwriting chops, elevated sound design and always-funky approach that makes Promnite one of the most exciting young producers in the game. Listen now (and pre-order the vinyl!)
