Alina Baraz X Khalid is simply a dream combination, and they work soo well together in the original "Electric." But add in Electric Mantis' special breed of future electro and now we have something that's completely legendary. This track is full of juicy production chops that serves to enhance the sexy original in just about every way. The chorus sweeps us around with a combination of sounds that are metallic and driving, but not too overpowering. There's definitely still a sense of sensual melody hidden behind the beats that keeps things moody in a good way, but yet hype enough for dance floors everywhere. We're already big fans of Electric Mantis and with jams like this being regularly pumped out it's easy to see why.
With a name like Purporangejuice, it’s gotta be good right? It sounds like a beverage concoction I would have made in the 8th grade cafeteria, but he’s really an impressively skilled producer making downtempo experimental future electronic music. This unique instrumental track “Lotus” is his debut, released via forward-thinking label Warpaint Records, which has quickly become known for uniquely talented artists in the electronic space regardless of their “genre.”
Reminiscent of such virtuosic producers such as Mura Masa, Tennyson, or Electric Mantis, Purporangejuice’s “Lotus” is a chill journey through an array of iridescent synths, contemplative beats, and otherworldly sonics. One could liken it to floating through an interplanetary rainforest, which if you ask me is pretty freakin’ cool.
The Hotel Garuda "Smoke Signals" remixes dropped today via PRMD, and both are so delicious in so many ways I couldn't pick just one to talk about! We are huge fans and supporters of Electric Mantis and Alizzz, and they have delivered some siiick future beats madness, flipping this track into super sexy versions with their signature sounds - one being equally as awesome as the other! You guys can pick which one you prefer, but I am telling you it's going to be a challenge! You can pick them up via iTunes HERE!

So kick back, grab some headphones and take this musical journey with us!!
Electric Mantis. Holy shit. Whenever anyone asks me where I think electronic music is going next I always just say ElectricMantis. The future sound of Australian artists like Flume and Wave Racer, the eccentric chops of Cashmere Cat and enough 808’s to make an sub woofer wobble. Eargasmic perfection.
