[Mega Playlist] Ultra 2013 Preview

At the turn of the year, there’s always a few things we get excited for. There’s always the excitement of new Music Ninja programs we’re launching, plans of grandeur for the upcoming year, new album releases, and of course, music festivals. We’re just out of the gate for 2013, and we have to say, we’re really stoked for what lies ahead.

First up on our list of festivals is the largest electronica festival in North America. The setting is perfect, as Miami is already a hub for the scene. But when you take the party outside, onto Bayfront Park, you know you’re in for an epic weekend.

With the announcement of the Phase 2 Lineup, we thought it would be a perfect time to share some of our favorite tracks from the performing artists this year. So here’s our 2013 Ultra Music Festival Mega Playlist. Once you listen to it, head over and pick up your tickets.

Dillon Francis – Bootleg Fireworks (The Rebirth) [Trap VIP]

Yes you are reading correctly, Dillon Francis dropped a Trap VIP of his massive tune “Bootleg Fireworks”. This was ripped from Rinse FM yesterday, and features an incredible re-work of an already amazing track, “Bootleg Fireworks”. We covered Dillon’s first Rebirth of “Masta Blasta” and this one might be even more hectic. Featuring some incredible chopping and splicing, tweaking this massive track in all the right ways. No new on the release date yet, Cheers.

Big Chocolate – Blue Milk (Kid Ranger Remix)

Coming off from the massive reaction to his drumstep remix of Savage’s 2005 classic song ‘Swing’, Kid Ranger brings another full force rendition of a much recent track: Big Chocolate’s very own Hip/Hop and Trap concoction ‘Blue Milk’. The marriage between Hip/Hop and Trap may be obvious, but it is artists like Big Chocolate that extend this Honeymoon period bringing excitement and experimentation to the wonderful love affair.

The California producer proves himself, yet again, paying tribute to the original’s heavier dynamics while infusing an intense, high-pressured bassline, rich in both intensity and appeal. This head-bobber is Kid Ranger’s submission to Big Chocolate remix competition for ‘Blue Milk’ and we urge you to help us vote for Kid Ranger here.

GUTS – Django Remix [Soundtrack]

After experiencing one of the best movies ever created, Inglorious Bastards, it was obvious that another Tarantino revenge story would provide just as much pleasure. Django, a love story that wraps around themes of revenge and justice was accompanied by one of the most modern soundtracks in the last couple of years. However, the main Django theme song is not so recent, originally composed in 1966 by Luis Bacalov. Spanish producer Guts, took the already excellent original and made a slow, easily digesting chill rendition.

Diplo & Swick – Keep It Gully [Preview]

We know Diplo likes to be a tease but a 30 second clip is just down right mean. Continuing the momentum of his much followed funky and full of bounce “twerk” movements comes another addition to his legacy. Swick, Mad Decent’s new rising star from Melbourne, Australia is just coming off releasing his Bubbles EP a few months back to now working on this new collaborative track with the Twerk King himself titled ‘Keep It Gully’. Featuring horn-like melodies layered over a dynamic and quintessential diplo production of drum loop and attitude-filled vocals samples, this new single
sets the tone for the new year.

Kendrick Lamar Feat. Dr. Dre – The Recipe (Trapback Remix)

One of the most original Trap remixes we have seen, comes Trapback‘s rendition of “The Recipe” by Kendrick Lamar Feat. Dr. Dre. Instead of going the typical overly bumpy trap route, the 18 year old Seattle based producer takes one step back for this ultra smooth track. I always cringe when I hear someone come up with a new genre name but it looks like we are seeing some of the early samples of what chilltrap *shutters* will become.

Avicii – Three Million (Your Love Is So Amazing) [Free Download]

To celebrate hitting 3 million likes on Facebook, Avicii is giving his fans a brand new single “Three Million”.

Let’s get things straight, we love Avicii. We have interviewed him many times and apart from being one of the nicest producers in the world, his music has constantly inspired us and the world.

Yet, we can only find Three Million reasons as to why this song just doesn’t cut it for us. It is quite alarming that whenever an important artists releases a new single, all the other music blogs jump on it with rave reviews. Yes, we are grateful to have a “Free” track from Avicii but we are just not sure what to think of it. The bassline after minute 2.15 feels outdated, as to coming from a nintendo game (although we admit this is a perfect soundtrack for a Contra game). The strings that typically carry the track with such progressive momentum in an Avicii production, seem to be absent and lacking. But, of course that is just our humble opinion as avid Avicii fans.

We are eager to see what else Avicii has in store for us in 2013.
