Finding awesome new music is one of the most exciting things to do! There’s nothing like discovering or find out about an artist you really like, whose music just gets you right here. It’s like finding a brand new soulmate or like somebody you have an aesthetic crush on. That’s the difference between just listening to some dumb song because it’s on the radio, and really, really connecting with an artist because you just love what they’re doing.
And so, here are 5 songs that are totally crushing it this month.
“I Miss You,” Ta-Ku
The best thing about “I Miss You” is that it features a sample of that Willow Smith song “Summer Fling.” You read it right — the already iconic “I whip my hair back and forth” Willow Smith! Ta-Ku is DJ a producer known for sickening beats, remixes and even did a song called “I Love Beyonce,” so now you know how I feel about him. “I Miss You,” tagged on his Soundcloud page as “Songs To Break up To,” is cold, atmospheric, but sure to keep you moving.
“When A Fire Starts To Burn,” Disclosure
Right now, Disclosure is the hottest garage act coming out of London right now. If you listen to “When A Fire Starts To Burn,” you can clearly see why: it’s easily digested but still edgy enough to keep things interesting.
“Warm Water” (Snakeships Remix), BANKS
BANKS, an L.A. based singer songwriter with a big voice that’s not to be messed with, is the most exciting thing to happen to electronic R&B in some time. Armed with only a couple singles here and there, BANKS doesn’t even have an album or a full EP out yet and she’s already about to blow up. Her debut EP drops this fall and you can catch her in a city near you while she’s on tour with The Weeknd.
“Leverage,” Hot Sugar (featuring KOOL A.D., Fat Tony, Lakutis, and Nasty Nigel)
It was a sad day when Das Racist called it quits, but at least some of them are still making tunes together! “Leverage” is a new track by producer Hot Sugar and the video for the song song shows a gaggle of cool underground rappers having a very nice time at Coney Island.
“On & On,” Autre Ne Veut

Any time Autre Ne Veut drops a new song it’s an event. After releasing the beautiful LP Anxiety earlier this year, ANV just released a new joint called “On & On” as part of the Adult Swim Singles Series. The series features unique tracks by everyone from Dan Deacon to Hot Sugar and Mykki Blanco, who collaborated with ANV on the remix for the epic “Counting.” “ON & ON” is a somewhat dizzying club banger that shows that ANV is at the top of the R&B electro game.
