Obviously, if we’re going to premiere a song for you, it’s going to be really dope. Today, we give you an exclusive listen to something that is exceptional even by our standards. French producer NEUS comes in with an official remix for Two Can‘s “Holding On To You” and it is nothing but pure, unadulterated fire.
Like we’ve stated before, pop meets moombahton is coming to the forefront. NEUS brings those styles together in his own unique way and we think it is nothing short of extraordinary. This is a great song even if you don’t call yourself a lover of electronic music. It’s got that catchy appeal you look for in a song, along with a sound that isn’t something you’ll come across often. We’re absolutely digging this one; no doubt it will be on repeat throughout the day and likely through the weekend. Huge props to NEUS on putting this one together for our friends down under.
We don’t know about you, but we’re ready for the weekend. Friday marks the beginning, but for us the real sign is when the Friday Party Playlist is up. The work day is then over, and we can relax, or more importantly: PARTY! This week we have tunes from some of our favorite producers including, but not limited to, Said The Sky, ill-esha, Atom Pushers, Crankdat and Tisoki. We start off with a few future tracks, hit some moombah, then some house/electro and finally finish with some heavier bass tunes. As always, all twelve of the playlist tracks are available as free downloads. Don’t sleep on them, and don’t sleep tonight. Instead, party! And don’t forget to #danceirresponsibly.
’The Chainsmokers – All We Know Feat. Phoebe Ryan (Said The Sky Remix)’
Anytime I hear moombahton, I’m happy. The genre’s been on the backburner, except for a few big time hits by mainstream acts, but Strobe! just came in with Nyla to blow everyone out of the water.
“Good Vibe” is the duo’s newest single released by Warner Music. It’s got everything you look for in an exceptional song. This pop meets moombahton style really resonates with people, and “Good Vibe” has potential to do more than just resonate. It’s a standout record that could really do some damage on the radio, especially with passed singles like “Lean On” doing record-breakingly well. Only time will tell just how successful this one will be. No matter what happens though, the fact that Strobe! and Nyla put together a kick-ass tune can’t be taken away from them.
Today marks the first Friday since Halloween. We’re sure you had a rough one, meaning your week probably wasn’t the easiest, but now you get to relax. To those of you who will continue partying, our hats go off to you. No matter what you choose to do this weekend, we have some incredible free downloads for you to enjoy in this week’s Friday Party Playlist. Records from this week come to us from the likes of Rad Cat, Koos x Dustycloud, Kayzo, CRANKDAT and more. There’s a good mix of remixes and originals in here to grab, and none of them deserved to be slept on. Stream or download all twelve, and make sure to take care of yourself as you recharge for next week. Most importantly, #danceirresponsibly, even if you’re staying home alone.
Halloween may be over, but that isn’t stopping us from sharing some music inspired by the holiday’s spooky vibes. Enter, Machete and The Doom EP. This may be a free release, but if it weren’t, we’d have thrown our money at the producer to get our hands on it.
Machete’s EP features three tracks that will take some listeners back near the golden age of blogs when moombah was gaining headway. The Doom abides by the midtempo grooves that got so many listeners to shy away from the usual 128/140 beats that were being pushed heavily. Each track on this EP has a little different style, but all of them bring the bass in homage to the harder side of moombah. Machete not only created three distinct party tunes, but managed to keep them within the scope of Halloween’s dark tone. Continue the haunt throughout the week and weekend with The Doom, and don’t forget to grab the download above.
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.
