[Music Video] Rayven Justice – Why Me

Sometimes a radio-centric R&B track comes along that we just can’t get out of our heads. “Why Me” is the latest one and it comes to the dojo from Rayven Justice. Not only do we get his female-friendly single, but we get a cool little music video to expand the project.

Hailing from Oakland, Rayven’s got a style that can bring him out of the Bay Area and into the starlight with world-wide recognition. The playful, tasteful nature of his music and video echoes the underground nature of his hometown’s music scene, while also allowing himself room to peak outside his own territory. It’s a sound that is highly accessible and although it’s not something completely new, the sound is fresh and exciting. It’s nice to hear something dope from a new name that can make a break for the top. Check out the video below and get a copy of “Why Me” from iTunes today.

[Electronic] Hypa Karate – Out Like This

Hypa Karate
Out Like This

“Out Like This” is the debut single from the act Hypa Karate. Not much is known about this act; the only things we’re given are a dated school photo that looks like it came straight out of the 80’s, he’s from Brighton and was born in the early 2000’s. There is one other thing we do know… that “Out Like This” is a straight jam.

Hypa Karate is already distinguishing himself despite his young age, with a formidable frenzy of sounds taken from synthwave, UK garage and beyond. The result, so far, is “Out Like This” which is going to be a song we come back to time and time again in the dojo. Even though it just came out, it has that timeless nature to it. No matter when it was released, it would be a hit. It’s one of those type of songs. Get hyped, get your dancing shoes on and get ready for Hypa Karate.

[Electronic] Lincoln Jesser feat. Gabrielle Current – Somebody Will

Congo Records
Lincoln Jesser feat. Gabrielle Current – Somebody Will

There’s just something about midtempo tracks that is so appealing. There are a ton of them out there and plenty of good ones too, such as “Somebody Will” by Lincoln Jesser and Gabrielle Current. Released through Congo Records last Friday, this pop-driven single is just what you need to lose the Monday blues.

“Somebody Will” is a dazzling, acoustically blended record whose cool sound will infiltrate through your ears and go straight for the heart. It’s soft, gentle and majestic. Gabrielle’s soft-hearted voice shines brightly despite her keeping things quite intimate with her style. It fits the instrumental that Lincoln created perfectly, making these two quite the match. “Somebody Will” is currently out, so digital stores can be browsed if you’d like to get a copy for yourself.

[House] MOUNT. – Melody feat. Bright Sparks

Melody(ft. Bright Sparks)

Everyone loves a good melody. Ultra Records has released plenty of tracks with memorable ones and now they have a full on track called “Melody” by MOUNT and Bright Sparks. As you would expect from a song with this name, it’s got some catchy melodies that aren’t easy to forget.

“Melody” doesn’t just rely on one single tonal structure to make up its composition. Sometimes when artists focus too much on the melody, that’s all there is, but MOUNT gives us that and more, while Bright Sparks delivers a hot topline that we’ve been singing in the dojo over the weekend since its release date on Friday. Let it takeover your ears and windpipes as it has done to ours and make sure to get a copy of the track if you’d like to support it.

[Trap] The 95ers – Work Hard Play Harder EP

If you’re looking to get your hands on something fresh right out of the oven, then you’ve come to the right place. A brand new project has come about called The 95ers. When Dirty Monkey isn’t cooking up his usual dose of dubstep (and other various genres) and Amp Live isn’t paving his own lane, these two dynamic creators are taking care of this brainchild – which also means Dirt Monkey must live in his studio, because he also has another side project with Jantsen called Soltri.

The 95ers kick things off with a strong first step via the Work Hard Play Harder EP. With five saucy singles, this EP is almost too hot to handle. Trap with various flavors and sounds is what makes up most of the project, with tracks like the introductory “Lean” and “Man On Fire” bringing some much needed flair to the genre. Trap isn’t all we get though, as the duo shift the pace with the break-driven “Jump” that is hype AF. You can get Work Hard Play Harder all for free, which is highly advised.

’Plane Slayers’
’Man On Fire’

[Indie/Electronic] Vargas & Lagola – As Long As I Have To

Just six days ago we covered a sweet little music video from Vargas & Lagola. A whole week hasn’t even passed and they already have something else that has come out. That something else happens to be the single “As Long As I Have To.”

The duo’s indie meets electronic style is played out in a vibey tune that is perfect for your weekend soirees. It’s a bit different than their previous release, but it can hardly be expected from these two that they would simply release an echo of their previous record. With tracks coming out at this pace, it has us wondering what is on the horizon. We’d wait as long as we have to for something like an LP, but hopefully that is coming sooner rather than later. For now, enjoy “As Long As I Have To” today.
