Digitalism's new track, "Electric Fist," has a title that's all too fitting. The German duo kick off the electro cut – which they and collaborator Mike Diamond of Blood Diamonds impressively created in only a few hours – by packing in whirling bass and meaty thumps with snappy drum claps. But the smooth grooves soon melt into grimy synths, and Digitalism crank up the intensity with a morphing electro assault that'll crack craniums.

"Electric Fist" will be on Digitalism's upcoming EP, Lift, out September 30th.

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
