Here’s a hearty five-track list of some popping electronic tracks sent to me (Ruth) over the past week or so. This week’s Gimme5 includes the likes of Pusher, KRNE, GRiZ, Pluto, and Flybear so take a breather from work to indulge yourself in their jamming tunes if you so pleaseeee.
So Pusher just released his new EP and it’s actually popping off its rockers. If you haven’t gotten a chance to listen to it in its entirety yet, we highly recommend you do so. In the meantime, here’s a taste of what else is in store if you listen to the EP. “Fences” features the coffee-flavored vocals of CAPPA, set against a charged bed of quirky xylophone-tinged, zig-zagging synths that set apart Pusher’s eclectic sound from the rest of the bunch.
Large in sound and an epic journey through a soaring soundscape, Jai Wolf’s original “Drive” seemed so fulfilling already. However, KRNE’s remix proves that the sonic possibilities are endless to explore with “Drive”. He takes The Chain Gang’s OG vocals, along with the anthemic main melody line of the OG track to a different category of “fresh sick dope hype hype epic sonic coolness” or whatever the more sophisticated way of phrasing that is.
Keeping with that trope of naming songs acronyms that no one can really guess on first glance, “PS GFY” is a funky jamming tune for those of you not sick of saxophone solo-ing in electronic songs. Okay, it’s also pretty good too. It’s got this slapping sound quality that makes you want to leap up on your feet the same way “Uptown Funk” does.
19 year old producer Flybear just released his latest track “Soon…” and it’s Chill beats, chill sound, fresh but something for the days you need to give it a break. I think it gets a bit long after a while, but honestly there’s something really nice about that.
Look! Another acronym-titled track! The OG track is pretty good as well though. Pluto remixed “YDU”, a guitar-laced, hot as f#ck track into this equally hot as f#ck track except a little more future bass. This 16 year old producer clearly has some skills. The only complaint I have is that there does seem to be a lot going on in the track and I wish it were made clearer which elements the listeners should appreciate. Regardless, the sounds that Pluto is making sound pretty fresh, so
