Leave behind the stressful weekend full of family and traveling by diving into Audius’ latest Hot & New playlist update. Kickstart the week with electrifying tracks from electronic music’s biggest acts, or release stress with gentle instrumentals. No matter the flavor, this week’s Hot & New playlist will only boost the mood.
Proximity presents “Don’t Give Up On Me (ft. Mako),” a collaborative track from EDM titans, Illenium and Kill The Noise. In this tune, heavy, gritty dubstep clashes with euphoric synthesizers – the perfect balance between the celestial stylings of Illenium and the mind-boggling sound design from Kill The Noise. “Don’t Give Up On Me (ft. Mako)” transports listeners directly to the main festival stage, dancing and headbanging at the rail.
Another electronic music giant, Dillon Francis returns to Audius as DJ Hanzel, his tech house alter ego, releasing the new heater “Gumby.” A punchy bassline impacts at rumbling frequencies, underlining a hypnotic technicolor synth. In “Gumby,” DJ Hanzel combines the addictive structure of tech house with the cavernous sonic aesthetics of warehouse techno. Dillon Francis effortlessly represents the ‘too cool’ temperament of DJ Hanzel with the underground rave attitude laced throughout “Gumby.”
Singer-songwriter Armond Arabshahi, better known by his stage name Unlike Pluto, recently unveiled his latest album Cherry Blossom Nightmare. This cinematic body of work empowers the listener through explosive emotions and raw vulnerability. Unlike Pluto creates alternative rock fit for a stadium performance, and the powerful expression throughout Cherry Blossom Nightmare rivals that of massive bands such as Imagine Dragons and Coldplay.
jay vee emulates a rainy day in their elegant instrumental, “where’s my cat ????” A piano gently hums a harmony, meanwhile, a quavering synth gently carries the melody. These tones flow beautifully together, twinkling as raindrops landing in a pond. “where’s my cat ????” is a gentle and introspective song, pairing well with a cup of tea and perhaps a book next to the window.
New Zealand-based trap heavyweight QUIX uploaded a recording of his special full drum and bass set, performed at the George FM DNB Hundy Party on November 19, 2022. Densely packed with energizing drum and bass across several subgenres, QUIX sets CDJs and speakers ablaze with an hour’s worth of straight fire.
