Editor's Pick of the Week - April 13, 2018

Every Friday, hundreds of new songs reach the world’s ears for the first time.

The FOMO can be overwhelming… but that’s where the Saavn editors come in. We listen to it all — every single track, from every single album.

Then we curate a fresh playlist featuring the very best new songs from across the world, to give you the best possible listening experience.

Listen Now to our Editor’s Pick of the Week.

This week’s an exciting one for electronic music, thanks to gigantic releases from DJ Koze, Morcheeba, Bicep and Rob Garza, as well as a timely new single from CHVRCHES, and Anjunadeep’s latest release, On Air.

Contemporary hip-hop gets a boost thanks to the irresistible Nicki Minaj, who returns to our eardrums with two new singles: “Barbie Tingz” and “Chun-Li.”

On the album front, we’ve got a full-length effort from Space Captain, rising indie group The Parlor’s love-filled Kiku, and astonishing hip-hop, A Girl Cried Red, from Princess Nokia. We’re also blessed with a disco time capsule from De Lux, and Rival Consoles’ glorious electronic experiment.

More about the standout tracks below.

Bicep – Rain

As we mentioned earlier, London-based duo Bicep is back with another rave anthem, “Rain,” which samples 1976 Bollywood hit ‘Koi Pathar Se Na Maare.’ By pairing Lata Mangeshkar’s voice with techno beats and the familiar brushstrokes of their synth-driven sound, Bicep has created yet another club banger, and a superstar act of the global underground. PS: wait till you see the video!

2. Dobruja-English-2018-20180320140713-500x500.jpg

Rob Garza – Dobruja

Rob Garza, co-founder of the iconic Thievery Corporation, has just dropped a hot new deep house track — “Dobruja.” The first single from the upcoming Dissolved EP combines magical vocal chanting with his signature style of groove.

3. Pick-Up-English-2018-20180323164031-500x500.jpg

DJ Koze – Pick Up

DJ Koze’s forthcoming album, ‘Knock Knock,’ is sending shivers of anticipation through the worldwide electronic music community. With his latest release, “Pick Up,” Koze sends that excitement into fever pitch. A beautifully-constructed, antique-feeling ode to classic house and disco, “Pick Up” is as mushy and groovy as it is innovative. If there were a title for ‘Prince of Dance Music,’ we’d want it awarded to Koze.

4. Never-Undo-English-2018-20180322015310-500x500.jpg
