4. Michal Menert - Sweet Remorse ft KEEPLOVE?, C1 & Paul Basic

Completed just in time for its live Big Band performance with all the principals, Michal Menert's lead single from the forthcoming Space Jazz LP is a how-to guide in electro-soul production. Unbelievably gripping melodies are cut with tight beats and slick verses. Throw in a little soulful singing, and you've got an anthem.

3. Manic Focus & GRiZ - Life Goes On

The third single from Manic FocusCerebral Eclipse was easily the fan favorite of the album, featuring a cool guest appearance from John McCarten's Liberated boss, GRiZ. Smooth and silky, just the way it's supposed to be. The life of this song goes on and on.

2. Pretty Lights - Lost and Found (ODESZA Remix)

Nobody exploded bigger and brigher than the Seattle duo ODESZA in 2014. While their album In Return is continuing to propel the pair to sold out shows well after its September release, it was this remix of, Pretty Lights, the godfather of electro-soul that really rocketed the rising stars into the stratosphere. Taking Derek Vincent Smith's studio-made samples, and flipping the flips, that signature sound just gets stuck up in your head.
