PENSIVE: Bearcubs - Underwaterfall

At first listen, one might swear the pulsating Underwaterfall is the newest taste from electronic producer James Blake. The similarities from fellow Londoner's, Bearcubs, are undoubtedly uncanny - at times too much. However, this Blake protégé carves out a promising identity through his EP of the same name. Additional notable tracks include the emotional, False Mirrors and the club-ready SL001.

Sounds like: James Blake, Cashmere Cat, Sampha

INTREPID: Donevan Adams - Our Keepsake

Montreal producer, Donevan Adams, masters the craft of minimalism in his new track, Our Keepsake, off his aptly-named EP, Few Things. Let this gentle yet gallant track soundtrack the sunrise on your next summer adventure.

DREAMY: Glass Vaults - Halaah Ha!

"I'll give it all up for nothing" declares New Zealand trio, Glass Vaults, in their rhythmically soothing track Halaah Ha! off their new album, The New Happy. This gentle jam is an end-of-the-night masterpiece, guaranteed to bring in the final hours of your night at ease.

AMBITIOUS: Jim-E Stack - Deadstream

The perfect dose of smooth energy for your late night drive to the party. Brooklyn's Jim-E Stack fills this record with slapping guitar riffs & pounding drum loops so smooth, you'll want to replay it over and over - until you learn there's a Rostam remix Ft. Charli XCX that's equally as infectious.

Sounds like: Clark, Tourist, Moderat

SMOOTH: Zola Blood - Meridian

ESSENTIAL: Caribou - Our Love

Dan Snaith's electronic outfit, Caribou, always seems to be applicable for anything from a pre-game to the dim background music on the way home from a long day at work. His first single, "Our Love" off of his upcoming album with the same name fits that bill.

SOUNDS LIKE: Gold Panda, Moderat, Bibio
