I don’t know if this applies to just the ninjas, but we’re ready for the weekend. Friday is here, and our Party Playlist is ready to get good times rolling in. Today we have collected a dozen tracks that have been put out recently as free downloads. Some big names including Black Tiger Sex Machine, David Heartbreak, Kandy, Elaksi, and Getter put out top-notch singles this week that we absolutely had to share with you in this collection. This week is almost all party, with very little pre-gaming to be done, except for the first song, which comes to us from Jeremiah Red, otherwise known as KROQ’s on air DJ. Check out all twelve records, and enjoy the next few days off. If for some reason you still have to work, let these records set you free in your leisure time. Most importantly, #danceirresponsibly.
Rell The Soundbender is one of Panama City’s most talented musical exports. Eduardo Morell III, has pushed his music through avenues like OWSLA, SMOG and NEST, and has collaborated with the likes of Far East Movement and Bro Safari. Now, he’s here with his Palante EP and he’s brought it to the dojo for a first listen.
The Palante EP is made up of four tracks with collaborations from Los Rakas, JVZEL, and Harley Mac and Far East Movement. Rell starts things off with “Criminal,” a future house style record that gets things started with a bang. It’s got the energy and attitude to get any party started. With the second song, “Pesao” the sound is switched up to a more trappy vibe that pulls from the producer’s origins in hip-hop. Next comes “Siempre” a song you will likely be playing, well, always. It’s a catchy house jam that is a perfect match for club DJs. Lastly, “Jamma” hits hard with its vibrant, festival ready demeanor. “Jamma” will put a lot of mainstage producer’s works to shame.
Rell The Soundbender did an incredible job with this project, which has been released through Afrercluv. Stream it first here, save it on Spotify, or if you are into buying digital copies, then head over to iTunes.
If The International Association of Baby Makin’ Music existed, PLS&TY and Bobby Saint would most assuredly be poster boys for the organization given what they did with “Outlaws.” There’s no denying it–the soaring vocals glide powerfully over surging synths and heavy bass, giving everyone the perfect backdrop for their upcoming bedroom escapades.
No need to blush, here. We’re all adults. We all have that playlist, and we’re all continually looking for new additions to it. This shouldn’t come as any surprise to anyone at this point. However, if you find yourself in the minority, or you’re just a huge fan of this pairing’s work, we have another layer that might be of interest to you.
Seeing as how every true music fan loves nothing more than to belt out the lyrics to their favorite tunes, whether it be in the car, with the windows up, or in the shower, holding your back scrubbie like a microphone, the simple truth is that whether or not we actually can sing, we’ll gladly do so anyways. Today, we’re giving you a crash course in how to keep up with “Outlaws,” made possible by this handy lyric video.
If you’ve come to know and love the collaboration of Palm Beach-based PLS&TY and Barbados-based Bobby Saint, and their work via PRMD Music, then you’ll certainly be stoked at knowing the proper set of lyrics from “Outlaws.” Just promise us one thing–don’t start singing these bad boys out as you lay in bed with that special someone. It will most definitely kill the mood.
After you’re done with your own personal karaoke session, head over and pick up “Outlaws” for your personal collection.
Walked Away (Feat. Y.A.S)
Back on the scene after a quiet first half to 2016, Toronto based producer Obesøn has taken to Twitter to announce the release of his new album. Beyond A Billion Stars as it will be titled, is slated for a release on August 15th via Spotify, iTunes and Amazon Music. In addition to the surprise announcement, the Hegemon co-founder also gave fans a taste of what to expect from the finished project.
David Heartbreak is one of the premiere dance music producers, period. He helped push moombahton to its height, pioneered the EDM trap revolution and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. He’s a true songwriter that isn’t afraid of changing things up. Now, he’s back in full force.
“I took a year off from music, I had some personal things going on, and I needed a break from music”
It’s been a while since we’ve heard from David, but he returns with his Skyline EP, out now on Uprise Music. We were unsure what direction David was going to take, given his diverse catalog, but with the two single project he brought some full on emotional vibes. The title EP is a highly melodic, ambient single that can best be described as David’s take on future meets trip-hop. It’s one of those records that will put a spell on you, one that is hard to break. For the second track, “Jux,” David partners with Cy Kosis for a unique trap single that is as dynamic as it is dope. There are more than a handful of records that David has put out that will blow your mind, and this is up there with his best.
“The inspiration behind skyline is New York City. Skyline was written in an Uber on the FDR drive. I just had a lot running through my mind, and it skyline just was perfect for where I was at, at that time.”
You can feel the emotion in these two singles. After dealing with his personal issues and moving back to his city, David is ready to continue making his mark on the world. It’s certainly a mark that we miss. Here’s to you David, glad to have you back!
Stayin' Alive (Viceroy Edit)
As the old adage goes, all good things must come to an end. While it’s always bittersweet to bring one of our residencies to a close, it usually means we’re bringing you a taste of something that’s never seen the light of day. Today is no different than what you’ve come to expect over the past two years.
In true warm-weather fashion, the Sultan of Summer, Viceroy, is offering up something he’s had in his arsenal for years. If you’ve seen him live, which we certainly hope you have, you’ve probably heard this gem mixed into his sets. It’s his edit of the Bee Gees 1977 monster hit, “Stayin’ Alive,” and it’s absolutely perfect for your weekend beach, pool, or BBQ plans.
To make sure you spend the rest of your summer in proper “summertime all the time” fashion, Viceroy is also hooking this up as a free download. Make sure to send him a tweet and give him some love.
