Highasakite

These guys must be as high as kites at the moment, following some fantastic reviews of recent releases, ‘Golden Ticket’ and ‘Someone Who’ll Get It’.

Giving us a snippet of their pre-show rituals, Highasakite have shared with us their pre-show playlist.

Enjoy!

The Knife – ‘Silent Shout’

A masterpiece of a song, love the vintage drum-machine and synths, and the vocal effect is dope!

Purity Ring – ‘Obedear’

Like getting sucked down into a dark hole where you get a glimpse of light here and there. Love this band!

FKA Twigs – ‘Water Me’

Beautiful vocal sampling, and the video is amazing too!

Grimes – ‘Dream Fortress’

Violin from another world! So moody and beautiful.

Like The Movie – ‘Cruel Thing’

My little electronic side project. Started working with this when I produced all of the electronic drums for the new

Highasakite album.

Purity Ring – ‘Amenamy (Jon Hopkins Remix)’

Love Jon Hopkins, and Purity Ring… so, this is just perfect!

Highasakite- ‘Golden Ticket’

Our new single, felt like it could fit on this playlist!

Justin Bieber – ‘Where Are Ü Now’

Can´t help it, this is just so cool! Fantastic production by Skrillex and Diplo!

Gordi – ‘Can We Work It Out’

Gordi joined us on our UK tour in May, and you should check it out!!

Emilie Nicolas – ‘Pstereo’

One of the best voices from Norway, and this song must be one of the best pop songs from Norway.

Björk – ‘Hyperballad’

What to say, this is so beautiful! The mix between electronic and acoustic instruments pushing the song forward with Björk’s vocals swimming on top.

Die Antwoord – ‘Ugly Boy’

Some people hate this, we love it!

Step Rockets

Step Rockets are a band from Minneapolis, who like to blend pop melodies with rock-inducing riffs.

They put together an incredible playlist for us. Check it out below.

Miike Snow – For U (Feat. Charli XCX)

Always a big fan of this group. Loving the non-traditional song structure here.

M83 – Go! (Feat. Mai Lan)

This song is a smash! The guitar solo is killing!

Tuxedo – Do It

Could listen to that funky synth bass all night long.

Yeasayer – I Am Chemistry

Their production is always spot on! Pushing the pop envelope by keeping it weird.

What So Not – High You Are (Branchez Remix)

Spicy future bass remix that keeps ya smilin’.

Autograf – Heartbeat

Summertime vibes.

Step Rockets – Love Is Just A Chemical

One of our favorite cuts to play live!

Tora – Latp

Super forward thinking electro-pop.

Chairlift – Ch-Ching

Just one of the many dope dance cuts off their new album. Go check the whole thing out.

Robert DeLong – Jealousy

Can’t argue with the stellar arrangement and production on this track.

Big Grams, Skrillex – Drum Machine

puts his magic touch on this crazy collab. Had to include one trap banger.

The Chemical Brothers – Wide Open

Digging Beck’s vibey vox and understated production from the Chem Bros.

Neon Indian – Polish Girl

More acid please!

Cut Copy – Lights & Music

These Aussies know how to keep the dance floor interesting.

J Dilla – Shake It Down

Wouldn’t be a Step Rockets playlist without at least one big flow cut.

Pr0files – Get It Up

Pr0files

Pr0files

We have some new cool kids on the block; this time its Los Angeles-based Pr0files (aka longtime friends Lauren Pardini (vocals/keys) and Danny Sternbaum (producer/guitars)).

With a history of seven years between them, and having worked with such artists as Skrillex and Corin Roddick of Purity Ring, it is no surprise that their latest track ‘Get It Up’ is super memorable.

Listen below to the sparkling track with a chorus that we promise will stay with you long after listening:

Sounds like: Ronika, Monogem, Color War, Palmedo
