14. Nick Thayer ft. N'Fa - What Props Ya Got Nick Thayer’s jaw-dropping style of bass music can best be described as a roller coaster ride. There’s no telling what will come next, leaving listeners shell-shocked from the sheer creativity each adrenaline-laden tune provides. “What Props You Got” is an unorthodox smattering of numerous genres blended together, resulting in a delicious smoothie of coalescing sounds.
13. Porter Robinson - Unison (Knife Party Remix) Knife Party can do no wrong. When those game-changing synths rinse your eardrums, it’s only a matter of time before the world is distorted.

12. Birdy Nam Nam ft. Teki Latex - Cadillac Dreams
If we had it our way, this smooth chune would have been called “Cadillac Pimpin.” Birdy Nam Nam’s California anthem is tailor made for the stoney summer nights, driving round with little ambition and a smile from ear to ear. Pitched up vocals, intriguing drum work, and a mesmerizing ambiance throughout.
11. Skrillex & Wolfgang Gartner - The Devil's Den

Bump, rinse, and repeat, because you’ll need a good shower after hearing this.
