5. Riot – Herbivore (Original Mix)
Announcing itself through thunderous chords that ring out atop a slick broken beat and smooth vocalizations, RIOT’s new single may seem innocuous at first glance—but first impressions can be deceiving. The true tone quickly makes itself known as skittering drumlines and mind-altering acid licks are quickly added into the equation. But the real mayhem ensues once the rallying cry vocal comes into play. Screeching synths relentlessly ground-and-pound while walls of low-end come smattering from above with vocal cues weaved cleverly between the thicket of bass.

1. Au5 – Answers (Extended Mix)
Au5’s Answers is a melodic banger that resonates well with this year’s August top pick. This melodic dubstep gem, aligned with incredible vocals, signifies the realization of “Answers” you’ve always wanted to know. The track follows his recent release of Chime and his “Wasteland” Trivecta remix. Au5’s use of chillstep influences and mid tempo infused bass showcases how he keeps pushing boundaries within the electronic scene. The second drop gives us an even faster-paced tempo that really catches the listener by surprise.
