Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA managing editor Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.

Goldroom is less than two months away from the arrival of his new LP, Plunge/Surface, and continues to share snippets of what fans can expect from the two-part album. The latest of these is “Running Wild” with former collaborator Nikki Segal. This relaxed piece ushers the autumn season in with ease.
RÜFÜS DU SOL blessed their fans with a new set of remixes for Solace on Sept. 6, sharing among them Gerd Janson‘s vocoder mix. The German producer brings a sparkling, bright new atmosphere to “Treat You Better,” putting a twist on the original’s vocals by incorporating a vocoder.
Fox Stevenson has been hard at work on his live show, a documentary, and his debut album, so it’s crazy to see the amount of material he’s been releasing. The latest in a string of releases is “Dreamland,” a vocal-powered drum ‘n’ bass-but-otherwise-hard-to-define song. He calls it “maybe [his] favourite song [he’s] ever made,” and it’s easy to see why.
deadmau5 and Kaskade‘s iconic “I Remember” is chillingly haunting in its original format, so when BLOODTONE got his hands on it, he somehow found a way to make it even more so. He’s given it what he calls “a dark warehouse feel” and plunged it to the depths of the shadows in a thrilling way.
The opening notes of RL Grime‘s “Core” are undeniably some of the most recognizable in today’s EDM scene. The 2014 tune has received a frantic drum ‘n’ bass facelift from Flite, and it’s nearly three minutes of pure energy. It’ll make your head spin—but in the best possible way.
