UK keynote producer Plastician returns to Audius, unveiling his latest track “Speed Demon.” After making his mark in the early 2000’s in the UK dubstep and grime scenes, Plastician established himself as a pillar in the London underground scene. Since then, he expanded his sonic palate and his discography now covers a colorful collection of genres. “Speed Demon” taps into his UK garage side and utilizes iconic samples from the genre. The four-on-the-floor beat steadily carries the nonchalant melody; the quiet energy of “Speed Demon” makes it a fitting track for festival stages in the sun as well as warehouse raves hidden in the night.

Keeping a peaceful theme, Tutara Peak joins hands with Winifred for a meditative moment in “Orbit.” Although quiet and introspective, Tutara Peak maintains their psychedelia streak with their subtly kaleidoscopic elements lying in the background. Meanwhile, the forefront of the song is decorated by the sweet sounds of Winifred’s vocals. Like a montage of passing time, “Orbit” rapidly weaves together a love story that rises stunningly with the sun and embraces the untroubled infinity that comes with nighttime. Indeed, “Orbit” is blissful, lapping softly at the edge of the beach like low-tide ocean waves. Tutara Peak and Winifred have crafted a complex and calm tale in this track.

Eccentric electronic duo um.. shares the latest installment in their skrillex series, “skrillex 10.” Composed using their unmatched sound design, this track embodies um..’s discography: the intersection between the macabre and the mischievous. “skrillex 10” is rife with demonic grumbling and manipulated dog growls layered over a lurching bassline. Although the eclectic composition seems to jerk listeners in several directions, there’s a certain cruising feel to this track. This fresh beat from um.. will certainly give bass lovers something new and interesting to sink their teeth into!
