Hard Techno | Pedro Delgardo & Lorenzo D’Ianni – Nails (Original Mix) [Yin Yang]
Yin Yang Records has quickly become my techno label of choice, with an aggressive, big room sound that would fill even the largest of warehouses. One of their newest releases, Nails, sees Pedro Delgardo and Lorenzo D’Ianni pairing up in an attempt to raze the club via kickdrum. The whole package has four different takes on the track, and each is excellent. Sample and grab the release here, and for some other recent favorites of mine on Yin Yang, check out Boomstick and The Big.

House | The Beatangers & Boogie Vice – Bad Girl (Original Mix) [Bunny Tiger]
French trio The Beatangers and Boogie Vice hollaback at hungry fans with the two-item Bad Girl/Let Me See Your Hips from August on Sharam‘s Bunny Tiger imprint. The lead track’s warm, plush kick and creamy bassline with the mid-measure roll brings the beat from good to great–never thought I’d get the groove feels while listening to Gwen Stefani.

Jacob Marmor
Trap | Baauer feat. Alunageorge – One Touch (VIP RMX)
Late last month, Baauer and announced they would be canceling their tour to work on music. Just a couple weeks after the cancellation, Baauer dropped this bombshell of a track with AlunaGeorge. In classic Baauer fashion, the producer keeps you on your feet with his “VIP RMX” of One Touch. The initial hard-hitting drop quickly morphs into a euphoric trap track.

Jesse Champagne
House | Whitney Houston – How Will I Know (Loveless Remix) [Free Download]
Despite the Norwegian group’s name, you will definitely feel the love with this groovy reimagining of Whitney Houston’s classic tune. Loveless seem to have a knack for taking on talented vocalists (as their Christina Aguilera remix clearly shows), and this song just oozes beachside flavour. Grab your free download here.

Tech House | Jay Lumen – The Reason (Take Me Back To Chicago Remix) [OFF Spin]
With the latest release on OFF’s spinoff label–appropriately named OFF Spin–Jay Lumen brings us some oldschool tech house in the shape of The Reason, complete with raw distorted percussion, simple-yet-pounding bass, and some spoken word samples. This mix is the Take Me Back To Chicago mix, rather fittingly as it pays sonic tribute to the early days of the underground Chicago house scene. It’s out now alongside the slightly funkier original mix as a Beatport exclusive.

Trap | Missy Elliott – Get Ur Freak On (Mr. Carmack Remix)
If you weren’t already excited that it’s Friday, I can confidently guarantee that this jam will do the trick. Let the hip hop queen Missy Elliott and the soulful trap master Mr. Carmack get your weekend started in prime fashion.

Nu Disco/Chill Wave | Mansions On The Moon – Don’t Tell
This is the perfect hangover song. I think we can all relate to having a fun, drunken night out flirting with your crush and partying with your friends. This tune perfectly embodies those aftermath vibes and feelings with its catchy lyrics, chill beats, and irresistible hook. If you enjoy it, be sure to also watch this hilarious video of people dancing in a zebra costume to the track–a must-see.

Michelle Gardner
Big Room | The Runners – We Will Stand (Radio Edit)
If you listen to SiriusXM’s BPM regularly, you’ve probably heard this ditty once or twice. Known for producing hits for the likes of Rihanna and Rick Ross, The Runners are now taking their talents to the dance world with their own originals. It’s no secret I love male vocals, and this track is no exception. Frederick’s voice soars into a danceable drop, reminding me of Tritonal. I imagine this isn’t the last we’ll hear from The Runners. You can pick up your copy here.
