Listen to this week's best new dance tracks from CalvinHarris, Boysnoize & more
Today is a special Valentine's edition of First Spin.Rico Nasty to prove it. The Berlin-based DJ and producer is hot from his first Grammy nomination, and today, he smokes the scene with a real mean double-sided stomper. “Girl Crush” is an industrial brawl laced with sexual tension. Nasty whispers seductively about the object of her surprise affection over a bloody face analog synth beat. We didn't know music could be a BDSM experience, but that's what this is. It's paired with “Buchla 100,” a brooding and hypnotic techno instrumental. There's a lot more Boys Noize to come this year, so keep a keen ear set. -- K. Bein Spencer Brown, "Womaa" San Francisco-based producer Spencer Brown made 329 versions of his new album Stream of Consciousness, and the herculean effort proves to be well worth it with the album single "Womaa." A brightly emotional peak time progressive track, the sound here is exuberant, spacious and clearly meticulous. "I prefer to craft music that keeps my listener in a flow state -- working, studying, traveling, exercising, dancing, whatever it may be," Brown, a self described "control-freak," says in a statement. "I conceived my album as one carefully mixed piece: an hour and change of continuous music." A rare long player indeed, Stream of Consciousness is out now via Above & Beyond's venerable Anjunabeats imprint. -- K. Bain Project Paradis, “Cut 11” Here's a banger so heavy, it'll make you wanna hide Alexa. Mr. Carmack and Promnite have revived their Project Paradis collaboration, a sonic storyline that tells of total A.I. domination. Paradis 1 introduced the apocalyptic scene, and forthcoming EP Paradis 2 tells how the automated overlords feed and learn on imprisoned human minds. The concepts are felt through grimy, bass-heavy productions that slice and dice through your gray matter. The first two singles are out now on Mad Decent, and we're gonna turn your attention to the hyper heat of “Cut 11.” These are beats to blow your back out, meant to simulate the pure adrenaline rush of the fight or flight response. The full Paradis 2 EP comes March 27. Start training today. -- K. Bein Mija & Gammer, “Digressions” Is drum'n'bass romantic? Sure, why not? Especially if Mija is going to sing all bedroomy about wanting and touching and keeping at a distance. The genre-fluid producer and DJ has always had a love affair with d'n'b beats, and she got with UK hardcore star Gammer to put a real dreamy spin on the old boom clack. The rapid-fire rhythms and swirling synth chaos captures the dizzy-head reeling of falling helplessly in a love that can't be returned, for one reason or another. We're real lost in the sauce with this one, the second official single from Mija's forthcoming Desert Trash LP. The full album is out Feb. 26, but you can love “Digressions” up close and personal this V-Day. -- K. Bein Read more: billboard
