It’s safe to say that our contributors at EDM Utah are obsessive about constantly finding new music. Each of our tastes are different but we all have one common love for electronic music. These are a few of the tracks that we clicked repeat on this week. Have a current favorite you want to share? Slide those bangers into our DM, we’ll love it.
Las Vegas based artist Ghasper has been on my radar for a few years now. I was first hooked with his track “Fritos,” which has been on and off of Soundcloud, but fell in love with each release as they came. “Foley,” however, is a bit different. The track relies heavily on melody as a chopped vocal sample fades in and out singing “please forgive me.” Combined with the solemn but sweet tune of the tune, which fades in and out combining various instruments, the track conveys the bittersweet feeling of begging a loved one for forgiveness and captures an element of the human experience in music. What often sets Ghasper apart from his counterparts is not just raw talent, its his ability to convey emotion into song in a way that almost feels like a form of synesthesia. “Foley” is now available on all major platforms such as Apple Music and Spotify. – Julia Sachs
Sam F & Nightowls
A good house beat is hard to ignore. “Sus,” the new single from Sam F & Nightowls is one of those that’s impossible to not have on repeat. The production is simple, but the heavy hook and lyrical composition is what makes the track so addictive. Beyond that, the colloquialisms in the lyric content make the track hilariously relatable for just about anyone between the ages of 20-25. “I should have been able to tell you were sus / Now it’s just me and this Jameson cup” the track repeats over a catchy bass house beat. Comparable to tracks like Walker & Royce‘s “I.T.B.,” which has become a favorite among just about every Dirtybird artist and fan, and VonStroke‘s own “Barrump,” I can see “Sus” becoming a staple of every warehouse party between here and LA. “Sus” is now available on all major music platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music. – Julia Sachs
Following the release of the first single, “Endz,” off of their new EP, Ösiris, Stööki Sound continue their streak of incredible releases with “My. G’s.” The track features a grimy trap beat with Jelacee, one half of the Stööki duo on vocals. In the last year the Stööki movement has proven to be one of the hottest up and coming acts in both hip hop and electronic music. Delivering some of the hottest grime and trap sounds and vocal accompaniment similar to the likes of legends like Skepta, Stööki have proven themselves to be and act that can neither be overlooked or underestimated. The release of “My. G’s” and “Endz” show the duos versatility as musicians while setting the bar for their upcoming EP to high standard. “My G’s” will premiere this Friday, October 14 while the EP, Ösiris, will be released later this month on the duos new label O.N.E. Worldwide. – Julia Sachs
The release of German producer LCAW’s debut single “Painted Sky” with vocals from Martin Kelly shows that the artist has potential to become a staple among fans of artists like Tycho, Justin Martin or Above & Beyond. The production on the track features a beautiful melody paired with lyrics like “You’re my lullaby / My painted sky” that take the listener on an ethereal musical journey as the song progresses. The video for the track was also released recently and features gorgeous shots of the sky and earth in pastel hues to go along with the song. LCAW’s debut single “Painted Sky” is available on all major platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music and the music video is available on Youtube. – Julia Sachs
