Lookas implements his vivid imagination once more for a stunning, melancholic remix of “Waste” by KXLLSWXTCH. The original track - meditative and acoustic - went viral on TikTok and caught Lookas’ creative attention. His take on “Waste” maintains the desolate space and misty environment established by KXLLSWXTCH, but Lookas adds in pulsing electronic waves to KXLLSWXTCH’s gentle crooning. This remix of “Waste” almost feels adjacent to the wave genre with it’s immersive, moody soundscape and quivering elements. Without a doubt, though, Lookas’ remix of “Waste” is perfect for a rainy autumn day.

London-based producer Sam Day returns to Audius to share his latest offering, a peacefully sunny tune titled “NEBRASKA (WITH YOU).” Slow and steady, this song radiates a golden light that shines and gives life to the vast fields across Nebraska. Romantic and beautiful, “NEBRASKA (WITH YOU)” illustrates a loving couple taking a road trip across this midwestern state, enamored with its natural beauty and with each other. Sam Day managed to create a track that breathes, that feels organic, that warms us even in the cooling November temperatures.

Experimental dubstep producer STUCA unveiled his latest demonic track, “Gone,” and undoubtedly eviscerated speakers at Halloween parties. Opening with low, long growls punctuated with vocal samples, STUCA wraps listeners in darkness. After the drop, “Gone” overtakes the mind with industrial percussion decorating deep metallic screeching. STUCA frightens listeners with the unpredictability of this track, from perfectly placed samples to diabolic sound design. “Gone” will quickly become a favorite of bass lovers.

Brightening the mood a bit, Phuture Collective presents its newest release: “Is That ALL” by RXPHY. This lovely tune opens up soothingly, feeling light as air. After laying listeners down in a cloud, RXPHY composes a kaleidoscopic melody of complex, staccato chords. Although the elements feel intense, “Is That ALL” delivers them with tranquility. This harmonious contrast takes our breath away, leaving us asking “Is That ALL” when the song ends.
