Editor’s Choice: May 25, 2013

Rather than operate as a music news source, Electronic Beats operates more as a music information source. We want to share with you; we want you to know what we’re hearing, what’s reverberating our cochleas and sending broader vibrations throughout our bodies, and by extension our audio-addled souls. Down with that? Welcome to Editor’s Choice.

Marie Dior – “Drop That Acid (Mind Warp)”

Super simple TUNE. This is Messy Techno but it’s mostly just fun. I was already praising Marie Dior in my January selection, but this stuff is just getting better and better.

Ikonika – “Mr Cake”

I’m not in a great hurry to return to a music press (collectively in its late-twenties) harping on about Mega Drives or whatever the hell happened back there. But then… the bass, the bass.

Charli XCX – “I Want It That Way”

We’re all addicted to Charlie XCX, even if she’s covering a boy band in a record store.

Talking Heads – “Psycho Killer” (B-Side) ft Arthur Russell

Dream collab from the good old past, bringing together the always inspiring Arthur Russell and Talking Heads.
