Most Addictive kills it in every aspect, whether it’s their label, blog or Youtube channel. We could go into why, but instead we’re going to focus on their most recent endeavor, the Reboot compilation.
Bassheads gather ’round, as MA collected six singles from some of the most solid up and coming producers in the game. Brig starts things off with one of the best songs of the project with “Flat,” which is anything but. Chime comes in hot with “Tundra” a video-game influenced dub record that is an absolute smash. “Amazon” by Guillotine comes in with a more modern dubstep original that keeps up the compilations energy, and heavy low frequencies.
Prismatic kicks us into a different direction with his hybrid tune “Ambush” whose name fits its attitude. Rob Gasser keeps us on our toes with his light-hearted drum & bass tune “Adrenaline.” The last song, “Departure,” is the only collaboration on Reboot, coming from Zetta and Wavemode. They bring the sound back to the contemporary area of dub that has been making a huge comeback in the last several months. Reboot is currently available on iTunes for purchase. It is well worth the money. Don’t just stream it, buy it!

Just a couple weeks ago, SKULS released a two track EP with a special announcement. The announcement turned out to be that the duo was going to release an even bigger EP soon. Today, it’s come.
SKULS’ Terminal EP marks a special point in the career of the Bay Area duo, who have now relocated to Los Angeles. Terminal was released with four singles through Terrorhythm Recordings, and is currently available on digital stores. SKULS keeps up the heat without letting up; not one song on this EP is lacking in any way. Within the songs, we get a glimpse into the lives of SKULS, who go so far as sampling voicemail from their journey from Northern California to LA. SKULS signature style is displayed in full, with “Lotusville” in particular being an exceptional track off the record. This is just the beginning. There’s a lot more coming from SKULS. Stay tuned.

Far East Movement album? Yep, IDENTITY is coming. Some tracks are already public, including the group’s collaboration with Candice Pillay and No Riddim on “F-VR.”
“F-VR” is a soft, vibey tune that closely abides by the styles of pop and trap. You can hear influences from both groups, and Candice’s vocal performance is one you won’t be forgetting any time soon. Don’t be surprised if this one makes its way up the charts and takes over the radio. It’s got that type of potential, and Far East Movement aren’t strangers to a big hit. After listening through this one, we’re excited to hear what else the album has on it. IDENTITY is out now through some digital stores, however iTunes will be live tomorrow with the full purchasable project!
One of the best kept secrets in dance music is UFO!. The San Francisco beatsmith abides by good music and good music only. Sure, he’s got a cool brand going, but he is sticking to his guns as one of the best veterans in the game.
Recently, he’s started unveiling his four part collaboration series. The tracks don’t have names, but they don’t really need them; they are just that good. Part one started with Choppa Dunks, and part two just came out with the Portugal producer Holly. Both tracks are absolutely savage, although they differ in style. With Choppa’s collab, we get a more of a jungle/reggae vibe that brings an obscene amount of energy. With Holly, we get a more of a bass heavy trap tune, although it doesn’t limit itself to that genre. It bounces all over the place, making it one powerful and dynamic single. Two more collaborations are coming, one next week and the last coming from G-Buck on November 1st. Get ready.
Over the course of the next few weeks, LEViT∆TE. will be teasing fans with episodes of his full length album Mecca. You might be wondering what exactly an episode is, but basically the Seattle producer will be dropping three tracks together each week for four weeks.
This week’s batch is the first. In kicking off the launch of Mecca, LEViT∆TE. starts out with “Check It,” a dark plunge into what the rest of the album will bring. “Jungle” comes next with a sound that I have yet to hear before; at least, not at this level of quality. The third single in this episode of Mecca is “Terrible Things” feature Macntaj. The hybrid trap single is more what fans of LEViT∆TE. have been used to, but he still manages to take his signature a step further. Stream all three singles today, and grab the free downloads one at a time through the single players!

Bad Royale kick ass. I could leave the post solely with that sentence and let the Treasures From Tomorrow EP speak for itself. Several days ago, Good Enuff dropped this three track EP on the world, and the world wasn’t ready.
Every time Bad Royale releases something, it’s more than dope. Treasures From Tomorrow keeps up their their streak without wavering. As usual, they have a few collaborators on the project; this time around being Mark Hardy, Brukout, and Future Fambo. Bad Royale’s caribbean bass style is expressed in full, as usual, but with this project they integrate new sounds and flavors that even their oldest of fans will enjoy. Throughout the project, Bad Royale move between genres, not only between songs, but within them. It’s one fun ride that you can stream/purchase or download for free. Whatever you choose, enjoy it!
