Kicks N Licks
World (feat. RULS)
Future bass is making itself known in the electronic music world and we’re completely okay with this especially with Kick N Licks latest release on Lowly Palace label, a special new project from the creators of popular Youtube channel Trap Nation.
This duo have a way of taking the listener through a dreamland like journey with unique soundscapes; we hear birds chirping in this one, and synths, but keep it upbeat with climactic drops and quick paced melodies. Add RULS’s smooth top line vocals and you’re given a little bit of everything. Play this track for anyone who is familiar with Kicks N Licks and there’s no mistaking this is purely their work. The track is out in full force and, even better, you can grab it for free here.
Don't Look Back (LissA vs. MEMBA)
We’re totally in love with LissA’s provocative love anthem and her vocals prove you can have a crush on someone’s voice. We’re equally in love with the production style of New York’s Ishaan Chaudhary & Will Curry, aka MEMBA. When the two joined forces to bring us “Don’t Look Back” the compilation of talent took this track to a whole other level.
LissA has organically built an incredible following with her talented sultry and what I’d call, voluptuous voice with past tracks such as “Pitch Black” featuring production from the talented Berlin producer Mazde, and with her cover of the Gorillaz “Feel Good Inc,” plus many more. Now, released on Night Air Records, “Don’t Look Back” joins her repertoire of singles that have quickly amassed some love from practically every industry insider. Add MEMBA to the mix with their worldly and ancient influences and we’re given an ethereal track by talented artists that ultimately make the perfect match.
You can stream or buy “Don’t Look Back” here.
When you think Florida, you think clubby house music, but that’s not the case for Tampa’s Trivecta. The producer’s new single “Shatterpoint” was released this week through AIA. Although the single fits into the future bass style, it doesn’t exclusively limit itself to that sound.
Trivecta has always had a taste for different types of music, producing everything from dubstep to glitch hop and house. Now, he adds future to that list with “Shatterpoint.” With it he blurs the lines between future and melodic dubstep, and we even get a bit of a hybrid trap break in the middle of the tune. It’s nice to hear someone put their own take on numerous styles, especially if they are all contained within one superb song. Grab “Shatterpoint” today through the digital service of your choice.
It’s understandable if you haven’t came across Julie Bergan given her location across the pond in Norway. We wish you did already, but if you haven’t, you’re here now. The Warner Music signee is making some big moves lately. For starters, she unveiled her completely live show, as well as released her new single “Blackout.”
“Blackout” is what we have to share with you today. The future pop single is just what radio-listeners are yearning for, along with festival ravers. It’s that perfect mix of underground dance music meets mainstream pop. Julie shows yet again why she is someone to have your eyes and ears on, no matter your location on the globe. Listen for yourself, share it with your friends. They’ll appreciate it. Whether you stream it here or on Spotify, just click that play button.
Party, party, party. It’s that time of the week, or shall we just call it the weekend already? For some of you students getting back into class, we hope your schedule doesn’t consist of classes today, and for those of you working, we hope your boss wasn’t a hard ass today. Tonight, you’re free to roam around as you please and get your dance or your drink on; or you can do like some of us ninjas and just relax while kicking on some great tunes. Today, we share with you some incredible free downloads, including a little Latin flavor from some of dance music’s best. This week we highlight works from Rad Cat, FIGHT CLVB, Happy Colors, Anden, as well as Dirt Monkey who closes our playlist out with “Jungle Juice.” We also were forced to include the Ekali x KRANE collaboration because it is just so damn good. Enough chit chat, dive right into the music. Most importantly, #danceirresponsibly.

Easier (Electric Mantis Remix)
It’s been several months since we’ve heard any new material from Electric Mantis, but thankfully the wait is over. Since the explosion of “Flips And Flops, Drips And Drops” three years ago, he’s concocted a slew of innovative remixes, along with the massive Braincase EP, and now this fresh take on Mansionair‘s “Easier” provides the same amount of gusto and hard-hitting bass that he’s made all his own.
There’s a refined sense of sleekness throughout the tune compared to some of his previous work as it juggles the delicacy of the vocals with his signature style, and it truly feels as though Electric Mantis has found the perfect medium between power and poise on this remix. If you dig this one, absolutely check out his original tune “Daybreak” that was released on Majestic Casual a few months back. It’s always great to see a familiar face back on our SoundCloud feeds, and Electric Mantis continues to bring quality material to the table every single time.
Armada Music gets behind a lot of great projects and what we have for you today is one of them. Two Friends and Exit Friendzone put together an impressive remix pack for their single “Overdose.” The EP includes four remixes that utilize the original vocal from Natalola while doing justice to the full first release.
The project starts off with CRWNS, whose vibey future take on “Overdose” is a strong beginning step for the EP. Secondly, Sokko kicks things into a slightly different gear with a light-hearted breakbeat jam. And it is a jam. We knew we were getting into something good when we saw Jameston Thieves on the list. His remix is the most unique and energetic on the project; a standout as usual. Lastly, the talented Jinco closes it out with a trappy, future blend that has a lot of appeal to a wide audience.
