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 is filled with future-bass sounds, with a touch of deep house and a calm set to balance it out. Enjoy below!
1. Flume – Say It ft. Tove Lo (Illenium Remix)
This song has gotten over one million plays in the last five days and it deserves every single one. After teasing us with samples over social media, Illenium has finally released his masterful remix of “Say It” by Flume. He transforms the emotional, downtempo hit into a future-bass banger with soaring melodies and driving rhythms. This one will be on repeat for a while.
2. Porter Robinson and Madeon – Shelter (Luca Lush Lift)
This track is so diverse in its sounds that it could be split up into three different, equally great, songs. The first drop is a unique take on the original melody that emphasizes an organic sound. The second drop goes nuts with a heavy progressive house crescendo, and the last drop is future-bass with a glitchy twist. It’s a great sample of the best sounds that EDM has to offer right now.
3. Gryffin and Bipolar Sunshine – Whole Heart
Gryffin and Bipolar Sunshine team up for a feel-good future bass track with very positive vibes. While it is a departure from his usual indie-dance feel, this is another great original from Gryffin.
4. Fractall + Breaking Beattz + Rocksted – Let The Bass Go
What’s a weekend without some deep house? Turn up the bass on this one, it’s a chill track with a simmering feel to it. Ideal for warming up a dance floor, this one is guaranteed to get your head bobbing.
5. MrSuicideSheep – ‘Dawn’ Pt. 3 (An Ambient Mix)
MrSuicideSheep’s talent for identifying great electronic music and sharing it with his fan base extends to this mix of ambient sounds that lasts over an hour and twenty minutes. This is probably the calmest mix you’ve ever heard, with beautiful chord progressions and almost no words. If you need something to clear your head and calm down, this is your jam.
