Awwwww, moombahcore; it’s been a while since I’ve whipped that term out. Thanks to Goja and their single “The Ballad” it was possible. Released on WOLV Records, “The Ballad” is a bass booming midtempo record that features the vocalist Chantelle Paige.
Goja has quickly become a go-to act in the bass music scene. Their past few releases with WOLV Records have been absolutely killer, and they have even more dope tracks beyond that. With “The Ballad” we get a tantalizing original that first lures you in subtly, then drives some heavy low frequencies into your ears and body. The groovy rhythms in the bassline are not only strong, but they are catchy. With school just starting for many of you, “The Ballad” is what is going to be popping into your head when you are spacing out in class. Then once you’re done, you’ll be playing it in your spare time, especially if you are partying during leisure hours. Stream “The Ballad” today, and if you want a copy, several digital stores can oblige.
If we told you right now that a big record was here, then we’d only be telling half the truth. The full truth is that a big record has come, as well as an even bigger video. The song? “Feelin U.” The artists? KickRaux and Ras Kwame. Those two didn’t do it alone though, as they enlisted features from Ayo Jay, Demarco, Doctor and Tyga for this hit.
With an ensemble like you have behind “Feelin U” you know you are getting a special tune. The moombahton/dancehall single comes at a time when a lot of top tier musicians/producers are leaning towards this style. Those tracks are good, but when you get a record from those who do it best, the others are put to shame. KickRaux and company have been killing it for a long while, and after coming together, the result is something extraordinary. It doesn’t stop at the song, as the video is equally as cool. Because this is a love song, we get to see the search for a companion in an interesting way. Let’s just say, if you are a fan of Pokemon – more specifically Pokemon Go – then you are going to really enjoy this one.
We hope your Friday morning started off with some coffee and donuts, or a nice big brunch, because those will come in handy later. Starting your day off right is important, but so is how you end it.

Most of the time when an artist releases a single, we ask ourselves, what were the other versions of the unfinished track like? Did the sound change? Well, Chris Siegel and Strehlow answered that for us with their EP This Is How. The double single project features the title track, along with a VIP that takes a turn down a completely different road.
With the original “This Is How” we get a poppy tune that is highly influenced by a tropical-infused moombahton sound. Chris Siegel and Strehlow put together a complex composition with a lot of different moving parts that couldn’t have been easy to do. They made it flow without a hitch, with the result being one incredibly smooth record. With the VIP, the producers take the track down a future bass path, but still keep some of the original vibe. It feels like a 180, but when you really listen, it’s still got that Summer time vibe to it. Collaborators on the project include Siren, Lex Allen and Christine Hoberg. We applaud everyone’s efforts in the creation of both these masterpieces that you can download for free individually. Doesn’t get much better than that.

Bad Royale stands out above most acts for several reasons. One is their combined personalities that turn heads, and another is their music that get heads banging. Their unique style is unrivaled, and they continue to put out records that increase in quality each time out. The most recent outing was with Mad Decent via their EP Immutable Timeline.
Immutable Timeline is another five track project that is jam packed with the boys’ Caribbean bass sound. The really cool thing about them is no matter where they take the sound, whether it’s through trap like with “Dutty Heart” or moombahton with “All We Need Is Love,” is that they kill it time and time again without delivering anything with a hint of stale. There are few acts that can crank out records at the Bad Royale pace, and their are even fewer who can put out only fire tracks. The Immutable Timeline EP is another example of their prestige within the music scene as a whole. They didn’t put this one together alone, as is usually the case since they work with collaborators. This time around they created magic with IAmStylez, Konshens, Suit of Black and their buds Bunji Garlin and Richie Loop. Head on over to iTunes to get your copy of the EP. It’s worth every penny.
