MP3 SELECTS: Playlists & New Music from Subtronics, BLOND:ISH, Koan Sound, Moore Kismet & More

In the modern era, distribution services push out over 60,000 new tracks every single day. How do you cut through all the noise, select what to listen to, and boost your playlist game? Introducing MP3 SELECTS, our weekly rundown of new music releases and our updated playlists on Spotify. Check out this week’s round up below:

Subtronics, Phantogram“Black Out Days” (Subtronics Remix)

Never would we have thought that Phantogram and Subtronics would mesh well musically together, yet here we are stunned by the continuous boundary-breaking sound production of the Philadelphia producer. Just in time for the track’s 10th anniversary, Subtronics takes the modern classic, “Black Out Days,” and warps it into a genre-bending drum and bass hit, infusing skittering, rapid-fire beats, pulsing electronics, and thumping low end bass. Of course, Sarah Barthel’s arching vocals and Josh Carter’s atmospheric guitar nods are still preserved, echoing over Subtronics striking break beats and bass.

The new remix arrives with an eye-popping visualizer featuring a psychedelic army of Subtronics’ trademark Cyclops characters. Watch the visualizer here.



BLOND:ISH – “Call My Name”

Get in b*tches, we’re going to the disco. Thanks to BLOND:ISH, we actually are. Following her afro-house track “Tra Tra” and “Sorry” earlier this year, the producer and record label head has released her latest new single, “Call My Name.” Drawing from the 90s dance era, the new disco house track is full of funky basslines and lively percussion that blends all the summer-soaked rules of disco into one. 

Fans will be able to relish under the producer’s energetic disco house beats with festival performances at Electric Forest, Outside Lands, North Coast Music Festival, among others before she takes her own event series “ABRACADABRA” to Los Angeles, Egypt, and Miami. 


KOAN Sound – “Ascension”

KOAN Sound, known for their unparalleled sonic craftsmanship and widespread acclaim in the electronica scene, makes a powerful return with its first single in two years. The duo, consisting of Will Weeks and Jim Bastow, rekindles their beloved project with a distinct aesthetic and sonics that resonate deeply with fans of science fiction and experimental use of instruments.

The accompanying artwork portrays a spaceship lifting off, symbolizing the reboot phase of KOAN Sound and visually capturing the essence of their first sonic offering in 2023. Titled “Ascension,” the track showcases a rich blend of instruments, including cello and piano, adding a personal touch to the music created by these revered sonic pioneers. Through their social media channels, the duo cryptically hints at this release being just one chapter of a much larger and exciting story.

Experience the triumphant return of KOAN Sound with their mesmerizing single, “Ascension,” as they embark on a captivating musical journey that promises to captivate fans and leave them eagerly anticipating what’s to come. —Franz Hilberath


Moore Kismet – “Run Away!”

California-based prodigy Moore Kismet returns with their highly anticipated single, “Run Away!” This transformative track marks the beginning of a new chapter for our previous cover star. Released via Thrive/Virgin Music, “Run Away!” showcases Moore Kismet’s boundary-breaking sound production skills, blending genres and pushing sonic boundaries.

Self Love and Powerful Purpose — Inside Moore Kismet’s Beautiful, Chaotic Universe

With filtered synths, grungy percussion, and pulsing electronics, the track builds intensity through its eerie and slow-burning arrangement. Immerse yourself in the captivating sounds of “Run Away!” and witness the evolution of Moore Kismet’s unique musical style. -F.H.


DROELOE, Banji – “Landscape”

Netherlands-based electronic producer and composer Vincent Rooijers – aka DROELOE – has released the new single, “Landscape.” Following his previous release “Feeble Games,” “Landscape” continues the producer’s collaboration alongside Dutch indie four-piece, Banji. The result showcases DROELOE’s ability to push the boundaries around sound production, blending elements of drum and bass with thumping indie-pop jams, all surrounding an uplifting message of staying present and holding gratitude for what life brings us. It’s the harmonious vocals within the track that propel it forward, as the two collaborators mesmerize listeners with a sonic tapestry full of emotion and energy.

In addition to the new album, DROELOE has revealed additional details on his forthcoming conceptual album, The Art of Change. The project will see DROELOE at his most vulnerable, journeying through time and space using recorded voice memos, AI voices, and textural experimentation. At the time of publishing, the release date of the album is unknown.
