Damn. Happy Fribe! Zedd let loose this complex banger, just in time to turn things up for the weekend. It definitely builds in a progressive way but stays fully true to the trap-style drops we’ve all come to really dig.
Summer is all but here, and thanks to Thomas Jack — it’s all but damn official. This mega mix of vibing summer house is guaranteed to make your road trip, pool party, trip to the sand, or happy hour 100% board short & bikini approved.
Kygo keeps doing it — so well. He recently hit 200k likes on Facebook, and is handing out two remixes for free. The first is his take on M83’s ‘Wait’ — and do exactly the opposite with regards to copping the free download. Waiting even a day is too long. This one’s solid.
The Wow is the product of KO THE LEGEND & producer Balthazar Getty and if you’ve never heard KO The Legend spit, it’s well worth keeping tabs on. His flow is unique, but more importantly, his wordplay and lyricism is grade A. ‘Talk My Shit’ was a track that had a lot of hype already before its released and had a bunch of grassroots support, especially via social media. The track features additional scratches by DJ Wonder, and was mixed and mastered by Balthazar Getty and Super Dave so needless to say, it’s got quite a bit of support. Enjoy it, then make sure you stay aware of what these guys are up to!
If I could only listen to one producer for the rest of my life it would 95% for sure be Kygo. The other 5% is just holding out to hear what any members of his bloodline do with music in the future. It’s always a purely musical blend of killer samples/song choices, backed by a whole new vibe-y approach. Seriously, this is your summer guy. It’s feel good and it’s musically savvy — something that is becoming increasingly rare in too many producers. His knowledge of “what works” just kind of seems to be innate. Either way, his newest track is one more to add to the library. Listen to it, then head to his Soundcloud page, hit play and never look back.
Pretty tight,ya? Here are some of my other favorites:
Eeek! Taylor Swift. Before you start running for the hills trust me, this track will keep you dancing all the way to your next summer wedding. Seriously, I was at a wedding this past weekend (congrats Jon & Annie) where the DJ was killing it. Track after track… I was thinking, “This can’t be happening, just wait he will play ‘shout’ so all the little kids can come out”. This
wedding music god DJ kept it spinning all night. No chicken dance, cha-cha slide, or wedding singer homage. I was impressed. One track he threw down was this mashup including CHVRCHES, T-Swift, & a Lana Del Rey remix by Monsieur Adi. So my advice to you, throw it on a flash drive and hand it to the next “wedding dj” you encounter who is about to clear the dancefloor.
College chicks, beer pong fanatics and…frankly, the whole damn hip hop game got a long-awaited wake-up call this afternoon, as Asher Roth’s sequel to the extremely successful Greenhouse Effect Vol. I dropped on the inter-webs. Asher Roth has since graduated from the beer pong tables and brings a far matured flow and some killer samples to this fantastic mixtape. The mixtape features a wide range of sounds and samples — including those from the Beach Boys, all the way to reckless (but awesome) features from homie “Biebs” (Justin Bieber) himself and the always awesome Chris Brown. The best part? Ash dropped this just in time for your biggest summer party — so download it alllllllll, right now, for free.
I have to say, I got the chance to share a whiskey water or two with Asher at SXSW last year, fresh with a new (then) long-haired look. Asher and his guys were nothing but hospitable and cool dudes to hang with. All the support in the world to this dude and all we can really say is “Ash. For the love of all that is good, do not make us wait this long for Vol. 3.”
Just when you thought you had heard enough of Kanye’s (now extremely overplayed) Clique, the ever-growing POTC comes out with a vibin’ rehash. Won’t lie — this guy never fails to surprise, and he continued the trend here. I’ve yet to hear a crisp, electric, grimey, and down to party remix like this from this track and POTC has brought the remedy. First drop is relentless with the filtered synth and you’ll kind of think, “Ok…let’s see where this goes” and then by the second drop, POTC takes it to all the right places by mixing it up a bit with some choppy, yet suave production — that maintains jussssst enough of the original melody. Enjoy! Pick it up for free download via the Soundcloud player.
If you haven’t heard this one in the last 9 months (you should have already) — get with it! It’s been a banger — but Luminox has hinted it might be pulled soon. Consider this post a PSA: Download now, while you can.
Our boy Luminox (of the ever-dominating EnvyUs crew) straight killed this version of what he rightfully nods as ‘an already awesome song.’ It’s no secret: Since his start, Luminox has only continued to develop his production, beefing things up every single time. His tracks continue to become more and more well-rounded and he just further solidifies himself as a master of the Trap scene.
MitiS exceeds listener expectations with the release of “Born – EP”, a six track packed mix of melodic and uplifting electro jams. This EP also was blessed with Collin McLoughlin’s strong vocal presence on the title track, Born. The classically trained pianist turned EDM producer MitiS, hits us with those signature piercing synth leads and punchy off-beat drums. This album has just begun its descent on iTunes top 20 dance charts so lets help this emerging producer land sooner by picking up Born – EP here.
