1. Take You Down - ILLENIUM

Close your eyes and vibe away to this amazing song that tells a very personal story. Illenium shares with his fans about his personal experiences and what this track is to him. This song goes deep into his personal life and he wasn't afraid to let everyone know.



2. Toxin - REZZ


With over 100k plays, REZZ is more than happy she stepped out of her comfort zone. "I now have a clear vision of things I want to do in the coming years," she said. 'Certain Kind Of Magic' definitely shows what REZZ is capable of.



3. Don't Hold Me Down - LoKii

LoKii has proved that he has so many releases in store for his fans yet this track shows another side of LoKii. This song makes easy for his fans to fall in love with, the melody is freeing and able to get lost in the gently built up that takes you to a different scene.



4. Forever - Snails (Funtcase Remix)

Snails gives a taste of what the remix album will be sounding like by releasing UK-based Funtcase's grimy, mechanical interpretation of "Forever" as the prime work off the upcoming, remixed LP.



5. Tie Me Down - Gryffin

Gryffin continues to impress his fans over and over again with his vibrant, emotional production. This time he teamed up with Elley Duhe and the results are amazing. His fans had anxiously been waiting for him to release it after dropping it on his latest sets.



6. Louder - Sultan + Shepard

This track embodies everything that 'Sultan + Shepard' love about dance music. It has vocals, live instruments as well as edgy future house sound. 



7. Me On You - Nicky Romero & Taio Cruz

The two powerhouses give this track the best of both worlds, with Romero's future bass breakdowns and Cruz's sensual vocals. So get ready to sing along to the lyrics of this hot track.



8. Grave - NGHTMRE

The monstrous, bass-driven track is built from stabbing percussion, lacerating synths, and a menacing underlying bassline. This track might be one of the most interesting and unpredictable bass/trap pieces of 2018.



9. Love - Pluko

This single is tastefully suspenseful, gradually building towards a series of delicate plucks and soaring vocal samples designed to symbolize the euphoric nature of the centric theme behind this track. Foreign Family fans have a new tune to gawk over. 



10. Lay Low - VCATION

This groovy, pop-inspired instrumental melodies and ironic lyrics will grab your attention so don't 'Lay Low' and give this track a chance.
