April has seen a lot of new releases from both up and coming and established DJs alike including crowd favorites like Two Friends, Snavs, Martin Garrix, NGHTMRE, Pegboard Nerds and more. But that doesn’t mean that there weren’t any surprising releases from rising talents, April also saw the release of great remixes like Gryffin’s remix of Sigrid’s “Don’t Kill My Vibe” and Pluto’s remix of Jocelyn Alice’s “Bound to You.”
This month also brought us our first listen of new material in 2017 from some of our long-time favorites like Dillon Francis with “Say Less,” Otto Knows with “With You” and 3LAU’s “On My Mind” to name a few. Even the ever-popular DJ duo from Seattle, ODESZA, released two singles from their upcoming third album, which left all of us feeling elated about the future possibility of a new album.
And for the third month in a row, Illenium has released yet again a new electronic single, “Sound of Walking Away,” bringing us our monthly fix of euphoric melodic bass. With last month’s hit collab with Gryffin, “Feel Good,” and February’s single, “Fractures,” Illenium has demonstrated that he’s not slowing down.
We’ve put together April’s top picks to give you a recap of some of the new trap, electronic, dubstep, house and big room releases you may have missed and a taste of some DJs you might want to keep an eye on. So whether you’ve dedicated to Spotify or Soundcloud, we’ve made a playlist that you can listen to on the go, wherever that may be.
