On Friday, December 13, 2019 we witnessed yet another big release day in the Electronic Music community. In total there are roughly 100 new songs that were released on Friday the 13. Dive in and discover new Louis the Child, Fatum, Chet Porter, Bonnie X Clyde, and Oliver Heldens.
Louis the Child – Here Comes A Feeling (With Naomi Wild & Couros)
This is the first song from our list that doesn’t depend on the drop. We’ve discussed how the entire production from Odesza’s music functions as a drop. Here Comes A Feeling from Louis the Child follows a similar structure.
We almost get jam band vibes from this one. Familiar Vocalist, Naomi Wild from Odesza’s Higher Ground does an outstanding job. Check what Freddy and Robby from Louis the Child said about the production process of their newest single.

We started this song with @couros on a day off in London. We had never met before but ended up staying at the studio until 6am working on this beat that felt experimental and like controlled chaos. When we got back to LA we hopped in the studio with @naomithewild and Blaise Railey and played them some beats and they were immediately attracted to this one. Here Comes A Feeling came out of that day and it’s one of our favorite songs we’ve ever made, hopefully you feel the same 💜
Above & Beyond – Love Is Not Enough (Fatum Remix)
Over the last four years, Fatum has established itself on both Above & Beyond and Armin Van Buuren’s labels. Whether it’s for Armada or Anjunabeats the Fatum boys craft some of the heaviest basslines in trance music.
Their newest work for Above & Beyond first premiered by A&B at ABGT 300 in Hong Kong. Yes, that is correct, it took nearly 14 months for this track to find a release date. It was worth the wait for that first drop, pure gold.
Chet Porter – Secrets
Chet Porter’s second release of 2019 is the second track from our list that doesn’t depend on a drop. On the first play, we were trying to piece together what the lyrics meant.
It appears the vocals were purposely edited to be incoherent. The result is that Secrets feels like a dream. Where we only learn small details and time is slowed down. This one is perfect for a walk. After multiple listens we began understanding what Chet Porter was trying to achieve, and we can’t stop smiling.
Oliver Heldens – Aquarius
More instrumentals from Oliver Heldens! This one leans more towards the definition of deep house. Opposed to the heavy-hitting future house singles that Oliver Heldens usually releases.
We love that Oliver went deeper and tried something different! The title Aquarius comes from the idea that sound is muffled underwater. Aquarius has a big underwater vibe.
Bonnie x Clyde – Leave it All Behind
Don’t worry we didn’t forget about our bassheads! This is the fifth single from producer/vocalist combo Bonnie & Clyde in 2019. Explore two different drops from Leave It All Behind. This one will spark your heart rate up. We wanted to finish our list with a dose of caffeine.
There will certainly be more big release days in the future. In 2019 we found so much music from old and new producers. Will 2020 be just as big? We know it will. We have a pile of new music to carry us into 2020.
