Sunday 5elect – Vol. 025

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 has a darker vibe. Enjoy below!

1. REZZ X K?D – FOURTH IMPACT

REZZ and K?D is a dream collab for those on the heavier, techier side of the electronic spectrum. Both artists are known for powerful, four-to-the-floor bangers that fill the entire sonic range when they blast out of speakers. “FOURTH IMPACT” is a techno house composition with both of the artist’s styles imprinted on the track. The first half of the song sounds like a pure REZZ tune, while the second drop (my personal favorite) sounds like a dark take on a K?D production. Only listen to this track loud and with bass-infused speakers.

2. tails. – YAYO

tails. channels his signature trap sound into a hip hop-influenced party track titled “YAYO”. Rap samples and trap beats have always gone well together, and tails. focuses the attention of the listener on his high-quality production by keeping the track simple. A bouncing bass, rolling snares and powerful fills are all he needs to whip up a banger.

3. Billie Eilish – Six Feet Under (BLU J Remix)

Wherever there is a smooth female vocal sample to be found, you can bet that a talented deep house producer will find it and work it into a bumping remix. BLU J teased this track in his recent Too Future. mix and the full version exceeds expectations. Rather than just using the vocals to prime us for the drop, BLU J made an effort to edit Billie Eilish’s soothing voice into the beat itself, bring the track closer to the feeling of an original than a remix.

4. whereisalex – we’re going down

I always appreciate this type of downtempo trap production because it needs to be so crisp, clean, and meticulously put together to be good. These tracks feel like minimalist interpretations of music that focus on how individual sounds can interact in a clean space to produce a unique vibe. They also bump hard. It seems like whereisalex only uses each sound once or twice to create a sort of journey as you progress through the song. Give it a thoughtful listen.

5. Dom Dolla – Selected Deep House 850k Mix

It’s been a while since I’ve featured some deep house on here – so here’s an hour of it. Dom Dolla is a pretty chill producer and this mix is a calm, driving exploration of bass and low-key vibes. It’s never over the top, sometimes borderline ambient, and always pleasant. Check it out for lots of nice house instrumentals.

 

The Weeknd – Can’t Feel My Face (Martin Garrix Remix)

Just in the time for the weekend Martin Garrix has treated us to a fresh new remix of “Can’t Feel My Face” by the Weeknd. One of my favorite producers, Garrix is riding the immense success of his hit single “Don’t Look Down” that you can hear on radio stations everywhere. A simple progressive house beat with a bit of a techno/dubstep feel, this song would be a good one to start warming up a party with. Enjoy below.

Madeon – Imperium (Dillon Francis Remix)

Ever since seeing Dillon Francis live I actually haven’t been able to get enough. The moombahton master just dropped a remix of Madeon’s “Imperium” and the result is a hard-hitting, almost dubsteppy, track that is reminiscent of one of Skrillex’s calmer songs. Enjoy the track below and make sure to see him live if you have the chance.
