Welcome to this week’s edition of Sunday 5elect, where Economix readers get insight into the top five tracks dominating my headphones right now. This week goes really hard. Enjoy below!
1. Kaskade & deadmau5 – Move for Me (Hex Cougar Remix)
Hex Cougar has quickly emerged as my favorite producer in the game right now. Some of his best tracks are hidden away on his remix account Hex Cougar’s Hextras but these are professional-quality remixes that take songs in directions you never though they’d go. His remix of “Move for Me”is the perfect example. The airy vocals slowly fade in and out of the track while the instrumental slowly but surely builds up into an explosion of sound that is grating and powerful. This is a song hand-crafted for an amazing live experience.
2. Pluto – I Won
Aspiring producer Pluto has boosted his astronomical rise in the indie EDM scene with “I Won”, a heavy-hitting remix of the Kanye x Future song of the same name. Iconic lyrics interweave with bass-heavy production to create a party anthem ready to be loved by EDM and pop-rap fans alike.
3. Loud Luxury – Something To Say (AFTER:HRS Mixcut)
I caught this smooth house track in The Magician’s latest Magic Tape and was instantly hooked. The vocals are hypnotic, and when the bass hits on the first drop it’s impossible not to start bouncing. The lyrics are odd but the way they keep moving forward and tell a detailed story is captivating.
4. BIG GIGANTIC – THE LITTLE THINGS (LUCA LUSH REMIX)
When Kasbo remixed this same tune by Big Gigantic into a chill masterpiece, I thought that I had heard the last re-imagining on the song. Then walks in Luca Lush. It would be hard to imagine a remix in a further direction from Kasbo’s, and it’s pretty amazing in its own, fucked-up, overwhelmingly aggressive trap way. In the right setting, at the peak of an amazing set, this song could be the highlight of someone’s night.
5. Vincent – Snowglobe 2016
Future-trap producer Vincent had the chance to strut his stuff on the main stage of Snowglobe this past December and he made the most of it. Full of his own remixes and a few promising IDs, this set perfectly walks the line between trap and melodic future bass music. Energetic, uplifting, and at times aggressive this is one of my favorite mixes I’ve heard in a bit.
