The Beatport Box 44

Welcome back to our series with Beatport known as The Beatport Box, where we bring you the best of Beatport exclusives on a weekly basis. This week, Skream throws a curveball with a release on Crosstown Rebels, Wiwek brings a second helping of jungle terror, and more.

Deep/Tech | Sebastian Ledher & David San - Shopper EP [Psicodelica]
Continuing to solidify their foundation as one of the finest deep tech labels in the dance music game, Psicodelica unleash their latest EP from Sebastian Ledher and David San, Shopper. A master class in restrained groove and pummeling bass, both Shopper and B-Side Party People are unquestionable after-hours must-haves. Play them both at midnight or later and you'll see what we mean. Go shopping here.
Deep/Tech | Skream - Still Lemonade [Crosstown Rebels] Skream's debut on Crosstown Rebels is one we couldn't wait to hear. From dubstep to techno, the sound output of this prolific producer has taken many dramatic turns. His latest through Damian Lazarus' legendary label is a sterling celebration of the modern melancholic sound moving bodies across the globe. The mysterious Redshape takes on remix duties on the flip with a moody, growling rework that builds into a weapons-grade dancefloor demolisher. Get it here.
Progressive/Electro | Joman & Lea Luna - High Fidelity (Club Mix) [Magik Muzik]
The Colorado-based pair of Joman and Lea Luna are no strangers to the local or national EDM scene, with releases on some of the hottest EDM labels and gigs sprinkled across the lower 48. Their latest, High Fidelity, could be the breakout hit the pair has needed to explode onto the scene. Joman said this collab has been hidden in the vault for the past two years, but it's finally seeing the light of day, in all its unabashed melodic electro glory. Grab it here.
Jungle Terror | Wiwek - Jungle Terror EP Vol. 2 [Barong Family]
The crowned prince of jungle terror is back with a second helping of tribal madness, and it might be even crazier than the first. With influences ranging from Jamaican dancehall to traditional Bollywood music, this is an eclectic EP that is sure to help him grow his fanbase all over the world. Pick it up here.
Trance | Alexandre Bergheau - Titanides (Original Mix) [Armada Captivating]
Armada darling Alexandre Berghau returns to his label of choice with a monster of a track known as Titanides. The Titanides were the six earth-goddess daughters of Heaven (Ouranos) and Earth (Gaia), which is an especially interesting choice for a song title given Armin and Rank 1's Gaia side project. Perhaps they lent him a bit of a hand? Decide for yourself here.

Rain Man Announces First Tour Dates

Former Krewella member Rain Man just announced his first tour dates since splitting with the group over five months ago. The Chicago native has been relatively silent since the costly breakup with Krewella-sisters Jahan and Yasmine, only resurfacing once to release a vastly different tune called Wrongchilde back in November.

The tour touches a limited number of major markets in the US, kicking off this month in Miami during Ultra Music Festival. While it's uncertain what his solo set will sound like, his recently published Spotify playlist may prove to be a good barometer of what fans can expect to hear. His forthcoming tour dates are listed below.

Rain Main Tour
3/29 - Buygore Pool Party - Miami - Tickets
4/10 - The Mid - Chicago - Tickets
4/11 - Webster Hall - New York - Tickets
4/18 - Avalon - Los Angeles - Tickets

PREMIERE: Hirshee – Royal Flush (Original Mix) [Hysteria]

Canadian powerhouse Amaan Hirshee is back with more of his melodically aggressive electro house in Royal Flush, and LessThan3 has the exclusive premiere.

His first original in over a year sees Hirshee leave his previous home of Big Fish to join such established names such as Bingo Players and Tommy Trash on EDM mainstay Hysteria. Hirshee reminds us why we fell in love with hammers like Salt Shaker and after hearing Royal Flush, we'd bet the farm on him.

Pick it up March 9.

Get Juiced With Boombox Cartel x Jackal’s ‘Jamba’

We never thought that saying “bum dum ba dum bum” over and over again would be so much fun, but then again, we should know by now not to underestimate OWLSA, who brings us Jamba, the debut collaboration between LA-based producers Boombox Cartel (pictured) and Jackal.

From start to finish, Jamba is a juiced-up, festival-ready romp replete with the aforementioned sing-song sample, energizing snares, and synth-heavy drops. If the booming big room bass doesn't get you, the trap-fueled drum rhythm change during the second drop certainly will.

Listen to the full stream of Jamba up above, and pick it up on March 17.
