Rising Greek electronic producer Aero Chord popped onto most of the world's radar with his breakout single "Surface" through Monstercat which saw support from most of the edm world ranging from from Skrillex to Diplo and inbetween. Today we have the premiere of his newest release, "Boundless", a follow up release on the Monstercat label. With the new single "Boundless" we start off with some pitched vocals and melodies quickly progressing to an anthem inducing trap drop full of quick cuts and transitions. The sound design and mastering Aero Chord has laid down is miles ahead of the majority of other trap producers with every section sounding unbelievably tight. This was the last song to be featured on Monstercat's most recent podcast as a mystery track with suspense building about who the track could be produced by. Listen to the premiere below and pick up your copy via iTunes at midnight. Enjoy!

A producer we haven't featured close to enough is the impressive German producer WKND who has a chilled out easy going style we can't get enough of. Today we have his remix of Chet Faker's cover of Sonia Dada's "Lover" that surfaced a couple weeks back which snuck through our radar. He layers in some tropical house styling with some smooth new drums while managing to highlight the original's guitar and vocals perfectly. This will be the perfect song to hold on to the last bit of the warm weather for part of the world starting to get cold. WKND has been nice enough to pass this out as a free download. Enjoy!

After Pharrell collaborated with the French duo Daft Punk on two songs (Get Lucky & Loose Yourself To Dance) from their grammy winning album, he brought the guys out to collaborate on a song for his own album that saw incredible success. The song "Gust Of Wind" exploded when it hit the internet earlier this year, and now Pharrell has brought the amazing track to life.
He has enlisted director Edgar Wright responsible for movies like "Shaun Of The Dead" and "Scott Pilgrim Versus The World" to direct the film.
Today we get to see the first preview teaser of the music video with Pharrell in his now signature ranger hat, fitting for him walking through some forest surroundings. We then see some oversized rock sculptures of the Daft Punk helmets and the video leaves us on the edge of our seat driving us wild until we can see the rest. With Edgar Wright responsible for directing this, we can expect an eerie, movie quality sci-fi journey with Pharrell and the Daft Punk robots brought to life like never before.. at least we can hope.
What do you think the video will contain? Watch and comment below:

French producer 20syl has broken out as a solo producer over the past few months proving that he is far more then 1/4th of the DJ collective band C2C. He has done this through an endless stream of viral remixes like Kyla La Grange "Cut Your Teeth", Schoolboy Q "The Purge" and King Krule "Easy Easy" to name a few, on top of his unreal original "Motifs" EP. Well today we are gifted with yet another out of this world remix, this time taking Jazz singer Gregory Porter and his amazing 2013 single "Liquid Spirit" and giving it his signature styling. Blending funk, jazz, soul and the perfect amount of electronic vibes tying it all together leaves us with a track you won't be able to stop replaying. No details on if this will see an official release, so replaying below will have to suffice. You can also pick up the original through iTunes. Enjoy!

Canadian producer duo Adventure Club are notorious at creating melodic anthems that can fill out festival stages and clubs across the world. The list of notable hits is too long to name with their most recent hard hitting "Gold". Never one to keep fans waiting long for music, Adventure Club's new single "Fade" is an uplifting dubstep structured heater, rinsed with grimey electro synths growls throughout, and stamped with Zak Waters vocals shining bright. "Fade's" construction is a revival to the early more melody focused days of Adventure Club, which I can expect their fan base to eat up. Stream the release below and you can purchase your copy through iTunes as well.

Flying Lotus' forthcoming album You're Dead! serves as a concept album depicting the journey of death through musical voyage. Steven Ellison is the maestro behind Flying Lotus and he continues to push musical boundaries with his fusion of Jazz and electronic production on You're Dead!. Enlisting the talents of lyrical wizard Kendrick Lamar on "Never Catch Me", we got to hear the amazing chemistry between the two artists.
One view on the meaning of the video is it reflecting on the concept behind the album as a young boy & girl experience death and seemingly jump back to life in an energetic dance during their funeral ceremony, but remain unnoticed by those in attendance. The children have a ghostly presence as they dance out of the ceremony only to hop into the hearse and cheerfully drive away as if they've just been freed. We can only expect more collaborations between these two L.A. based legends in the making as they have expressed great excitement to be working together. Be sure to grab You're Dead when it's released Oct 7 via Warp Records.
