The Trap Dojo #42 [MP3 Playlist]


First off we got two unreleased tracks form KEYS N KRATES, that were both ripped from their Future Stars Mix for Hard Summer. Next up is arguably  the best remix of 2013, and we can thank the man from down under, Flume. He remixes Disclosure’s track with Eliza Doolittle, and nails it on every level. Any Trap related tune with A-Trak on it is going to be massive, and his remix of Kavinsky’s track “Odd Call” is on point. LOUDPVCK also fall into the the category of nailing everything, and this fly remix of Jackal’s track “Shakedown” doesn’t disappoint. Next is a track that was overlooked by pretty much every blog, and it’s a remix from Swick and Lewis CanCut of Sig Pattni’s track “Mr Alpha”. There are two DJ Green Lantern tracks being featured today, and first off is a fire remix of Iggy Azaela‘s track “Bounce”, the other is titled “Splitting Atoms”. Enjoy the rest on your own, and my apologies for lagging with getting this post up. Cheers.

[TMN PREMIERE] Disco Fries – Open Your Eyes (Psychic Type Remix)

Disco Fries
Open Your Eyes (Revelation) [Psychic Type Remix]

If there’s one thing that you can say about NYC based DJ duo The Disco Fries, it’s that they know how to write tracks that get the club moving. The gritty electro house bangers these two churn out on the regular grace our Party Playlists on a weekly basis. One of our all time favorites was “Open Your Eyes,” features buzzing synths layered over melodic build ups and dance inducing beats.

Today we’re bringing you something slightly different. This time around, Psychic Type has turned “Open Your Eyes” on it’s back end with a proper trap treatment. This track would surely light up a festival, or at the very least make you want to twerk at your desk. If you partake in the ladder, don’t worry, we won’t judge.

Disclosure feat. Eliza Doolittle – You & Me (Flume Remix)

You & Me (Flume Remix)

Disclosure, Eliza Doolittle, and Flume.  With those three names on one track, you already know it’s going to be nothing short of amazing. So as expected Flume absolutely nails this remix in every way, shape, and sound. He has the genre titled “Orchestral Crunk Wave”, which is completely appropriate for this amazing track. The drop is rather flawless, and definitely boots this remixes replay value to infinity. Cheers.

[Disco-House] The S.O.S. Band – Take Your Time [Do It Right] (Solidisco Remix)

The S.O.S Band
Take Your Time (Do It Right) (Solidisco Remix)

Disco-House duo Solidisco, dug into their crate of obscure records for this one and may have found the perfect Summer remix along the way. With multiple releases on A-Trak’s tastemaking Fool’s Gold label, the pair seem to be the perfect ambassadors to bring one of our favorite dance genres to the masses. Taking The S.O.S. Band’s classic “Take Your Time (Do It Right)” was perhaps a risky move, but the original stays largely untouched with only minor tweaks; the BPM’s taken up to around 128, the drums hollowed out, but much more boisterous and a danceable four-to-the-floor bassline. All of these elements will no doubt culminate into a Summer time charge to the dance floor, and as an even greater bonus, Solidisco has included the track as a free download for aspiring DJ’s to rinse it in their sets or just to groove to in your vehicle of choice (here’s looking at you Vespa contingent). Grab it above.

The Trap Dojo #41


We’re kicking off this weeks Trap Dojo in a hard way with the newest track from trap music prodigy Alex Young, an original titled “Mastermind”. Don’t let the emotional electro build-up fool you, when this one drops, nothing will stop you from banging your head and attempting to shuffle, no matter where you are. Vinnie Maniscalco puts a fresh spin on an old favorite this week, remixing The Champs classic tune “Tequila”. With heavy bass and clever drum work, he flips the familiar sax tune on its head. Ookay and Pyramid Juke come together for a huge collaboration with this minimal track “Yen”, hope you have your subs turned up for this one. The name Aylen should be a familiar sight to you ninjas, so you know when he remixes Porter Robinson the result is going to be massive, complex trap banger. Both ETC!ETC! and CRNKN bring us two very different remixes of Tokimonsta. ETC!ETC! pulls some huge 808s and snares over some lyrics by Kool Keith, while CRNKN chills it out a bit. TRILLWAVE remixes “Good Vibrations” by Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch on their nostalgic EP which also includes a remix of “What is Love” and “Believe” by Cher Theres plenty more heaters for you to discover in this weeks dojo, so be sure to check them out.

[TMN PREMIERE] Gentlemen Hall – Sail Into The Sun (RAC Mix)

Gentlemen Hall
Sail Into The Sun (RAC Mix)

As the calendar turned to June 1st, we knew we were going to have to start selecting some of our favorite summer tracks. Little did we know, that it would happen so quickly.

Dancy beats? Yep. Wavering vocals? You betcha. Anthemic choruses? Yes sir. While we were already enamored with the original of this tune (via Gentleman Hall), we knew fun remixes were coming down the pike. And after just four short months since it’s release, “Sail Into the Sun” has received a fresh new sound from one of our personal favorites.

Aside from having a solidified spot in our office rotation, RAC can always be counted on to serve up a fun remix. The best part about the Remixing Artist Collective though is the wide spectrum of genres he remixes, and creates through his remixes. Today we’re happy to bring you a premiere of their take on “Sail Into the Sun”. For this project, the amped-up poppy tempo of the original is dialed back a little bit creating a chill nu disco vibe. Even though the track has a different feel from the original, it still maintains it’s warm summery feel.

I had a blast working on this song. The source material is so catchy. – RAC
RAC is the band’s favorite DJ so when we reached out to Andre and he said he’d do it, we were running around the house jumping for joy. He completely nailed the remix. It’s quite euphoric. I can see it being used at chill out time after a night of partying. – Gentlemen Hall

Take a listen, and make sure this one lands in your next poolside playlist.

Wale wants to make sure you don’t forget his name at all, having already dropped one other single earlier today. His second offering comes in the form of a remix to his hit single, “Bad.” Replacing Tiara Thomas on this updated version is Rihanna, who offers up her talents on the chorus as well as a few bars here and there. Check out the track above and make sure to cop Wale’s The Gifted when it drops on June 25th.
