We rounded up some of the best recent electronic releases, including a new video from Paul Kalkbrenner, a new EP from Jerro, and more.
JERRO – CLOSER EP [THIS NEVER HAPPENED]
Jerro’s latest offering to Lane 8’s imprint accentuates his ever-growing talent and keen aptitude for melodic house music. His exquisite records and elegant melodies leave much to be desired from this up and coming producer. Each of the five tracks on the Closer EP highlight Jerro’s intricate studio expertise while providing the listener with otherworldly delicate soundscapes.
PAUL KALKBRENNER – PARACHUTE [MUSIC VIDEO]
The techno megastar teamed up with acclaimed Russian filmmaker Taisia Deeva to deliver a stunning music video for his single, ‘Parachute‘. This marks the second time the German producer enlists the Siberian-born creative director, the first being in the award-nominated ‘Part Twelve‘. Deeva’s take on the single injects an epic slice of surrealist optimism set within a brutalist Kiev housing complex, and explores themes of humanity’s continued desire for human connection.
CloudNone is back on the release radar once again with a new ATTLAS remix of his track ‘From Here’. Soft, shimmering synths begin the nearly five-and-a-half minute vibrant reinterpretation. A pensively emotive tune, the organic sound of his fresh, new take is as ethereally entrancing as it is contemplative. Delivering a stellar masterpiece from start-to-finish, avid Monstercat fans can now revel in the otherworldly sonic greatness that is this long-awaited remix.
SHOGUN – INTO THE NIGHT FT. DEAN CHALMERS [SONY MUSIC]
For his fourth release of the summer, DJ/producer Shogun has teamed up with versatile dance music vocalist Dean Chalmers. Known for his work on Gareth Emery’s Garuda, Armin van Buuren’s ASOT, and many more, Chambers injects his carefully balanced euphoric vocal flare into Shogun’s latest trance bomb. In true Shogun fashion, ‘Into The Night’ kicks off with a relentless kickdrum layered with glittering synths that climax in an entrancing cacophony of vocal jabs. Chalmers lyrics depict an impermeable love, which mesh perfectly with the electrifying instrumental. While festival season may be on an indefinite hold, Shogun continues to go above and beyond for his fans by delivering hypnotic gems that teleport them to a parallel universe.
JUSTA FAZE – DIRTY FILAS
Distorted, glitchy vocal cuts start off the latest sonic offering from Liam McKanna, alias Justa Faze. A catchy beat slowly trickles in, with electronic 8-bit-esque sounds and a flowing melody effortlessly rounding out the four-minute release. A quintessential future bass jam, the atmospheric track sounds nearly identical to any 80’s arcade video game, which suits it well as it serves as McKanna’s first single off of his aptly-titled debut 5-track ‘Arcade Games’ EP slated for release this Fall.
