Each month, so many new singles, remixes, mixtapes, EPs, and full-lengths flow down the pipeline. Some of them we're fortunate enough to catch; while others tend to slip by us. It's important for us to stay on top of these releases, and much more important that we pass those on to you.
The following is a digest of the best electronic music releases of August 2014. It's a wide variety spanning indie, electro, bass, trap, and more. Don't be surprised if you find a few new flights of fancy to add to your collection. This is the good stuff, and we're determined to share the best of the best with you each month.

10. Jimkata - Remix In Light EP
One of our favorite indie-dance acts, Jimkata, assembled a collection of remixes from its stunning Feel In Light release, appropriately titled Remix In Light, that takes the band's sunny tunes and puts a different spin on them. These are friends of the four-piece who lovingly cared for the original source material. More Jimkata is always good for us.
9. Porter Robinson - Worlds
Porter Robinson wasn't really trying to change the world with Worlds, but if he set out to make a great pop album, succeed he did. Experimenting with indie sounds and offbeat tempos, fans expecting a powerhouse electro album were probably thrown for a loop. Tracks like "Divinity" demonstrate the pop sensibilities of Robinson, and the fact that he's going to be one of the most sought-after behind-the-scenes guys in the industry for megastars is a certainty.
8. Lidsky - Flourish EP
Young Lidsky is a new find for us, but the Denver-based producer is finding his way into a lot of new fans' hearts with his delicious blend of glitch-hop and electro-soul. It's got that Mountain Music sound, but it definitely has range and a depth of emotion that belies the prodigy's age.
