Egzod – Wake Up
Egzod is one French artist that is quickly on the rise and easily identifiable. With his signature “world bass” tone, NCS welcomes him back for the release of his melodically emotional hit “Wake Up”. Vocals from the talented Chris Linton polish this track, as the two teamed up to create a fervent tune that will find its way into your playlists. RaverRafting also wishes the young artist a happy birthday!
Redrum – Era Istrefi (What So Not Remix)
After a while of silence, What So Not is back and brought a remix of Redrum’s “Era Istrefi”. With the signature sounds that we’ve come to love from What So Not and solid production, this remix is one that’s been stuck on repeat. You’ll quickly fall in love with the unique atmosphere that washes over with each drop!
Zomboy – Rott N’ Roll Pt. 1 EP
Every bass fan has been waiting for this, Zomboy’s Rott N’ Roll EP. With four tracks that are each as unique as the last, you can expect heavy drops and shrilling synths. If part one of the album is a precursor for the rest, then you can expect some seriously ground-breaking tracks coming soon for the massive bass artist! Make sure to be on the lookout for local tour dates as well, as Zomboy makes his way around the US.
Gentlemens Club – Mo Fire
With four years of major releases and and neck-breaking performances around the globe, the legendary trio Gentlemans Club is back again with their latest release. “Mo Fire” will deliver a mysterious feeling with drops that will get any crowd rowdy and moving. If you’re looking for a seriously heavy track, look no further.
Vintage Culture & Ricci – Later
It’s not often that Spinnin’ releases make it into our Powerful Picks, but “Later” is one of the few exceptions. This house track delivers a deep drop that’s equally as groovy. The crisp synth work and addicting vocals will get you moving and tapping along to the beat quickly.
Z0u? – Playland
Z0u? is a juvenile artist who is swiftly making a mark in the scene. With his latest release coming out on Warpaint Records, you can find pounding kicks and half-time drops that quickly turn into up-tempo sections. Be on the lookout for more from this artist and label!
