Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 38
Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA music editor and staff writer Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.
Bearson teams up with vocalist Ashe in his newest original, “Get Lost.” This lighthearted, carefree track is carried by the passion behind Ashe’s vocals and a grooving beat from Bearson. This one is clearly made to be played with the windows down on a sunny summer day.
Halogen are back with another hefty house heater. “Time” delivers a groovy deep house beat with emotive vocals that fit perfectly with the nostalgic atmosphere Halogen have created. The Atlanta duo have a knack for house music, and it shines brightly in this latest original.
One of the most fun shows I’ve ever been to featured Lenno and Arty as the headliners. Ever since, both of the talented producers’ tunes have held a special place in my heart, and I look forward to each new release. Lenno’s latest, a disco-injected remix of NIKÖ BLANK‘s “Ride,” is bursting with the retro vibe he’s become known for.
Oliverse surprises with each new release. He’s unpredictable in the best way, putting his own spin on everything from PVRIS to Modestep. On his latest, “GET 2 ME,” he’s revamped a classic dubstep sound. Loaded up with heavy wubs and frantic synths and vocals, “GET 2 ME” is solid energy and bass from start to finish.
Tim Schaufert honestly gets better and better with each new release, leading me to feature his tunes in here constantly when a new one comes out. He’s again teamed up with longtime collaborator CASHFORGOLD for “Let Me Go.” CASHFORGOLD’s vocals are haunting in the best sense of the world, and Schaufert’s production remains top-of-the-line in this song, serving as another stellar example of why he’s one to watch.
