Download: Shelby Grey "Glow in the Jungle"

First Listen

Shelby Grey is an active member of Barcelona's growing electronic scene, holding down a residency at the city's Nitsa Club and throwing the bi-monthly Diabolic Disco Invention party at another of the city's nightlife destinations, Moog. Next week, Grey will release his Leave It All Behind EP via the Holographic People imprint, and has passed along the brooding "Glow in the Jungle" to help spread the word. Stomping just below 100 bpm, the tune is led by an analog bassline, which pulses atop a swarm of ghostly synth tones and a series of driving rhythms. The hypnotic "Glow in the Jungle" will serve as Leave It All Behind's closing effort when Shelby Grey's upcoming three-track EP sees its release on August 26.

Download: Genuflex "The Last Gods (Eaux Remix)"

First Listen

Earlier this year, London crooner Genuflex (pictured above) released his "The Last Gods" single via Federal Prism. A dark and pulsing pop song lined with screeching textures, the track has now been given a remix treatment courtesy of fellow London trio Eaux. In its hands, Eaux reshapes "The Last Gods" into a more understated production, softening the original tune's edges in order to fit them into a more heavenly assemblage of active synth lines and bathing them in rich ambience. Likely the result of improvised manipulations, the remix eventually breaks down to a beatless mass of reverb-laden vocals and distant loops, which fade into the bell-like drones and restless electronics that appear in the rework's closing moments.
