[Multi-Genre] Conrank – The Big Smoke Beat Tape

Bassrush and Insomniac Records came together to back a massive project from the UK beat-boxer turned producer Conrank. The LP, The Big Smoke Beat Tape, moves fluidly between genres, showcasing the producer’s distinct UK sound.

Packed with eight singles, including collaborations with Dirt Monkey, Holly and more, The Big Smoke Beat Tape is just as big as you’d imagine. Conrank blends genres within tracks and through the LP delivering sounds like dubstep, trap, grime and many more. He describes the project as “a cross-section of what goes on in my studio on a day to day basis. A melting pot of tracks that maybe wouldn't necessarily be put together on a record normally.”

All together this LP is a must listen and must have. It’s currently out now on digital platforms if you’d like to get a copy. Share this around with your friends who will praise you for a unique find and your great taste.

HAMi Shares Top 5 Crazy Celebrity Encounters & New Track [TMN Premiere]

HAMi
MOLLY WATER

We just can’t keep HAMi out of the dojo, which is totally fine, because we love having him here. The professional skater turned producer HAMi already stopped by for a chat once, and now he’s back with some crazy celebrity stories alongside a brand new single. You heard it here first!

“Molly Water” comes out tomorrow in full, but we’ve got you covered in the dojo with an exclusive premiere listen. Furthermore, HAMi has come as to share some wild run-ins that he’ll never forget. Enjoy “Molly Water” and read through HAMi’s top 5 crazy celebrity encounters including ones with Dave Chappelle, Ozzy Osbourne and two individuals who can’t even be named.

Lil Wayne

So around this time Wayne was really getting into skating heavy and was in LA all the time skating with all the homies. I never had the opportunity to do so though. Note that I am a huge supporter of his music so naturally I really wanted to meet him. Long story short I’m at the “Transworld” skateboarding video premiere, everyone’s is there, Wayne chilling. Super chill vibe, and my OG BFF Braydon Szafranski (pro skater) walks up to Wayne daps him up and says “I want you meet my friend Erik Hamamoto” and Wayne’s like” pssshh! HAMAMOTO!! I Fucks with HAMAMOTO!” And from there on he introduced me to his fam like “This is Hamamoto!” That’s one thing I never thought would come from skateboarding, so that taught me to just do what your heart tells you! Everything you’ve ever wanted is waiting for you.

Dave Chappelle

So after a long weekend of throwing our selves down rails and stair sets, Braydon and I would often frequent a spot called “Hyde” that’s right next door to the “Laugh factory”. So one night we leave Hyde around 1am, and as we walk out the door man says to us “Dave Chapelle is next door, and has basically crashed the show and is doing an impromptu set.” So we’re like fuck yeah and run in. We sit and the only 2 chairs available, dead center, and the second we sit down, Dave pauses and looks and Braydon and says “Holly shit! Billy idol just walk in!!” (And for those who don’t know Braydon, look him up. IG: @braydonsza). At the time Braydon looked surprisingly just like a Billy Idol look alike, so everyone just erupted with uncontrollable laughter! So Dave carries on for another 30 minutes, kills it, and everyone gave him a standing ovation! He walks through the crowd and gives everyone a hug and hand shake what ever. I proceed to slip him a medical marijuana tube, he looks at it and says “There’s no way I’m getting this on the plane!” Looks at me, gives me a wink 😉, and puts it in his pocket. Daps me up and disappeared. I was like This dude is so G!”

Big Boi (of Outkast)

So one evening I was talked into going to a “party” with my homie and this female he was just starting to see. She invited us to a GHB kick back, but at that time the only thing I had heard of GHB was on the news, so in my mind I hear “date rape party”. I was very hesitant to go, but my homie was like ” don’t trip! It’s gonna be all girls, trust me!” So out of curiosity I decided to at least check it out. So I get my self ready and we hop in a cab. We arrive to the destination which is located on the sunset strip. We cruise up stairs, walk in and there literally 5 people in total, the one female that invited us, one massive body builder looking guy, three other males, two of which were clearly already feeling the effects of the GHB, and her “best friend” who was this male model looking fella. I take one look and immediately say “I’m gonna grab some cigs from the store” and B-line for the door. So I start walking home, half way there I hear someone yelling “Axl Rose!! Yo Axl! What’s good Axl rose!!” And I approach Black Escalade with the back window cracked like half way and he’s still laughing and yelling “What’s up Axl Rose!” So I’m kinda ticked off at this point, he’s being very condescending so I approach the vehicle and the window comes down and low and behold it’s “BIG BOI” from Outkast! Who at the time was my favorite rapper calling me Axl Rose, my favorite rockstars of all time! I learned that no matter what you have to go for it! You’ll always end up with something amazing happening that had nothing to with why you’re actually there!

Ozzy Osbourne

I was acquaintances with Kelly Osbourne; we became friends through a few mutual friends. I was invited to watch her performance for “Dancing With The Stars”. Her dad was there as well. I remember him chilling cracking jokes and giggling the whole time, except for when Kelly danced. He sat silent and all I saw was a proud father. So after the performance we all chilled in the green room and Ozzy’s hyped for Kelly and we’re all chillin’ and Ozzy looks to me and says “What kind of shades are those?” I proceed to tell him “happy hour” shades and we chatted about them a bit. What I later realized is no matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you are, none of it matters with out friends and family. Also it’s way cooler to be nice to people than to stuck up and a dick.

Thee Who Shall Not Be Named

This one I can’t name names, but it was a pair of very famous siblings one of which at the time was going hard in the paint! Public getting smashed and new papers and tabloids spoke about it so on and so forth. Long story short: We’re chilling downtown NYC and I hear a knock on the door and a delivery guy is at the door with like 100 cans of whip cream. At the time I was baffled. I had no idea what the cans of whip cream were for. Once the delivery guy left the madness ensued. They started popping these cans of whip cream like it was the 4th of July!! Obviously they were doing rich people’s version of a whip it’s. They proceed to take dozens of Polaroid pictures of them huffing whip cream cans with whip cream all over their faces and clothes. I feel like I have never lived after partying with America royalty. But what I did take away was that life is too short to always be serious. Live life and it will work out its self out.

[Trap] Black Tiger Sex Machine x YOOKiE – Lions

Black Tiger Sex Machine x YOOKiE
Lions

Black Tiger Sex Machine come together with YOOKiE for a monumental bass track called “Lions” that comes with the announcement of the next BTSM album. Safe to say today is a big day for the trio who have released the single on their label Kannibalen Records.

“Lions” is an orchestral bass anthem, showcasing BTSM’s usual intrigue alongside YOOKiE’s iconic sub-bass growls. I can only imagine how this song gets received when BTSM or YOOKiE drops it on the Midnight Terror tour that is currently underway. BTSM’s next album will be coming – when? We can’t be too sure, but we don’t mind waiting around as long as “Lions” is here with us. Get your ears ready for some heavy bass and get your copy of the single today.

[Electronic] JETSET – Mayday EP

When JETSET was releasing singles over the last month, I thought I had the direction of the EP pinned down. To my surprise, JETSET went a very different way, accenting his previously released singles with unique instrumentals that are more orchestral than electronic.

Mayday has been released as a group of free downloads. His heavier tracks like “Bloke Patrol” and “Sawed Off” are the real party starters, with dirty basses that will blow any crowd away. Throughout the EP JETSET adds in instrumentation that is more like something you’d hear from a composer, showing off songwriting abilities that go beyond many producers. To cap off the EP, he mixes the two styles evenly with “Finale” featuring jvnk. Mayday is a testament to what producers should be doing – creating unique works of art instead of just doing what other people are doing.

’Walking Backwards’
’Rain (feat. osotyt)’
’Bloke Patrole’
’Abyss (The Heavens)’
’Sawed Off’
’Finale (feat. JVNK)’

[Multi-Genre] Tiigers – Belial/Takedown

The Italian duo Tiigers recently dropped two heaters through MA Music. Their ferocious A/B side project is good step in the right direction and happens to be one their debut EP. Coming off a free download a couple months ago, this is the duo’s first official release.

“Belial” comes in as the A-side track, pushing forth a hybrid bass sound mixing trap with heavier elements of dubstep. It really showcases where Tiigers can go with their sound. “Takedown” shifts the sound a bit to the house realm, delivering an electro single. Although the song takes you through another sound, it centers upon the electro style that brought so many into dance music. Stream both today and grab a copy of the EP from digital stores.

[Dubstep] Al Ross – Boneless

Al Ross
Boneless

There is a whole lot going on for team Buygore. They have releases coming all the time and have expanded with the creation of FrshBlood, a sub-imprint focused on names in bass music that need highlighting. One of those names is Al Ross, who dropped his single “Boneless” as a free download through the label to celebrate his signing to their roster.

“Boneless” is a gut-wrenching dubstep track that will leave you shaken to your core. Heavy isn’t even the half of it with this immense single that should come with a warning stamp. Perhaps the fact that FrshBlood released this one is warning enough; this sort of earth-shaking sound is to be expected from their catalog. Speaking of catalog, theirs is set to grow with the coming of their third compilation this October 10th. In honor of the compilation release there will be a FrshBlood showcase party at the Belasco in Los Angeles the following day. Don’t miss out on it, get your tickets today!
