This week's Freshly Spilt Milk new music playlist features new music by Wiz Khalifa with Curren$y, Polica remixing Boys Noize, NGHTMRE reworking RL Grime, and more.
1. "When You Loved Me Least" (Ghost Loft Remix) - Michi: Ghost Loft is a trip hop producer based in Los Angeles, and has worked with major acts like Wiz Khalifa and Justin Bieber. In addition to his latest remix of "When You Loved Me Least," he has been hard at work for most of this year with his ongoing Daily Demos project. Beginning on February 1, he has posted a brand new track on Soundcloud everyday. In an interview with Soundcloud, he explains that he follows through on the daily quota for himself whether he is completely comfortable with the final product. This experimental method allows him more room for creativity.
2. "Fingerprint" - Lane 8: Lane 8 is an Anjunadeep label favorite, but now, he wants to leave his own fingerprint on electronic dance music and events. Today, over-the-top production and social media dominate world of electronic music festivals and club shows. Electronic music professionals such as producer Kaskade or founder of Insomniac Events Pasquale Rotella romanticize the era of underground warehouse raves. With the release of his new single "Fingerprint," he also announced that he will be starting a new record label and concert experience aptly named This Never Happened. He hopes to create a new type of club environment, where cell phones and pictures are traded in for memories and an escape from reality. His new single is entrancing and evokes the feeling of being at one of his private club experiences.
3. "Starchild" feat. Poliça - Boys Noize: In anticipation for his upcoming album Mayday, Boys Noize collaborates with synth-pop group Poliça for an unusually soft and slow track. The ethereal voice from female vocalist Channy Leaneagh gives this track a dreamy sound. The abstract music video is the perfect accompaniment of his experimental new release.
4. "Matters" feat. Phil Fill - Matthias Vogt: German deep house producer Matthias Vogt teams up with fellow German Phil Fill to create an ambient deep house track. The calm vocals from Phil Fill are complemented by a relaxed and simple beat.
5. "Don't Make Me Wait (Original Mix) - The Golden Pony: This duo covers the '80s band Peech Boys' disco hit "Don't Make Me Wait" in there appropriately-named new single.
6. "Natural" - Mat Zo: The untimely passing of music great Prince last week touched the hearts of millions of people across the globe. Prince was an inspiration to many fans and fellow musicians. He was honored by purple city lights (New Orleans lit up The Mercedes-Benz Superdome and Smoothie King Center in purple), TV show specials, and fan support. Mat Zo pays tribute to Prince in the best way he knows how, through music. Mat Zo created the song a last year in honor of Prince, and felt that now was a proper time to finally release it. Use of processed vocals and groovy beat mimic the style of the great himself.
7. "Aurora" (NGHTMRE Remix) - RL Grime: Less than 24 hours after the release of RL Grime's new single, NGHTMRE swoops in for the remix. NGHTMRE really brings "Aurora" to life! He even manages to make the build-up exciting and the drop dynamic, unlike the orginal.
8. "Thief" - Ookay: The California-based trap producer's latest release adds a new jazz element with the use of saxophone in the drop.
9. "Colors" (Audien Remix) - Halsey: Audien is a multifaceted American producer that is known for his ability to create tracks in different genre classifications. Although he specializes in progressive house, he uses popular female artist Halsey's soulful voice in her track "Colors" and adds an uplifting future bass for the chorus.
10. "XO" - Genix: This new progressive house tune has an upbeat intro with repetitive drum hits. When the melody comes in, you can almost see the lights on stage flash as the song builds. This track sounds the way being at an outdoor EDM festival feels.
11. "Golden" feat. Kyler England (Sunny Lax Remix) - Thomas Hayes: Sunny Lax is known for his big room progressive house and trance productions. He produces some of the highest energy singles and remixes in the trance world. His work has even sparked the attention of EDM veterans Above & Beyond and Kaskade. At Ultra Music Festival this year, Kaskade mashed up his single "Move for Me" with Sunny Lax's "Enceladus" to open his set at mainstage.
12. "Agera" - Nitrous Oxide & Fatum: The simple piano chord over the uplifting big room trance beat adds a certain vibe of happiness. This track is extremely high-energy and has a satisfying progression.
13. "Beautiful" (Seven Lions Remix) - Ferry Corsten: Seven Lions' North American tour is underway and just stopped in New Orleans. In this new remix, he chooses to stick to his guns and transforms Ferry Corsten's 2007 trance single "Beautiful" into a melodic dubstep work of art.
14. "Change" feat. Curren$y - Wiz Khalifa: It's so good to hear Wiz return to the sound that gave him so much popularity upon the release of mixtape Kush & Orange Juice. Wiz is known for appealing to stoners with his bars about weed and girls and kicking it with homies...and weed. He enlists the help of New Orleans native Curren$y to lay a few bars.
15. "I'm in Love" - Kygo: Kygo is smooth as hell. While other DJs are busy trying to make a drunk crowd of ravers jump to another house beat, Norwegian producer Kygp pioneered the tropical house sound that is refreshing to so many fans of electronic music.
16. "Ingrid Is a Hybrid" - Dusky: British deep house duo Dusky work with an enticing techno beat and chanted lyrics "take me away." This track has that perfect underground sound heard in clubs, more so than festivals.
17. "City of the Rose" (Wheathin Remix) - TYuS: R&B and trap marry well together. This remix has gained the attention of trap duo Flosstradamus. Wheathin transforms the R&B track with a heavy drop.
18. "Say it" feat. Tove Lo - Flume: With the release of his album Skin set for May 27, Flume gives us another tease this week with a feature from pop vocalist Tove Lo. He even revealed the tracklist for the highly anticipated sophomore album.
