[Get Crunk] Friday Party Playlist (Vol. 118)


Is it just us or did this week fly by way too fast? Hopefully time starts to slow down with it being Friday and all because we want to take advantage of every waking moment from now until Monday (yuck). So before you start wrapping your head around the notion that Monday is only a few days away, just remember that you have an entire weekend to get weird with your friends with some sick ass beats to help you out.

So in preparation for making it out alive, we put together a chronological list of what you need to do to make this weekend worthwhile -



3: FOR


With that said, we’re off to the store to go get some beer; we’re not turning down for anything tonight.

Until next week, ninjas. #Danceirresponsibly and shake what yo mama gave you.

[TMN PREMIERE] Rae Sremmurd – No Flex Zone (Styles&Complete Remix)

No Flex Zone (Styles&Complete Remix)

Sometimes being a ninja can be a little exhausting, however, we never let this creative fatigue get to our heads, ESPECIALLY when we have a track that will undoubtedly make you want to take advantage of Hump Day in the dirtiest way possible. We aren’t here to hit you in the feels, so save the tears for another day and go put your twerking shorts on because we are about to take hyphy to the next level with the latest Styles&Complete remix of Rae Sremmurd’s anthem, “No Flex Zone.” After hearing this festival banger we could not stop flexing – so FAIR WARNING – you will flex and there’s no way you can resist the temptation.

Styles&Complete took this radio hit and threw on some booty bass, some wanky chopped horn synths, and solidified it all with some heavy hitting drums strong enough to punch you in the face. These guys obviously looked this track straight in the eye and said “we are about to violate the shit out of you and people will lose their minds once we’re done,” because this remix just permeated our skin with straight heat. You might need to go stock up on some fire extinguishers or at least go take a shower after exposing your senses to such filth because Stlyes&Complete will make you feel grimey as hell. Overall, this remix certainly met our expectations and in turn we just signed up to take booty bouncing lessons in order to perfect this artistic form of self-expression.

Ma-Less – Bad Bitch [TMN Premiere / Interview]

Ma-Less - Bad Bitch
Bad Bitch

Orlando producer, vocalist, and feline fanatic, Ma-Less gave us first look at her newest track, and we’ve never heard a ‘twerk’ track go in this direction. Being behind the self proclaimed “Church Of Twerk”, Shake ‘N’ Bass, she is a well educated on twerking. This track takes a similar approach to what an experience would be if you attended a Shake ‘N’ Bass event. Instead of us telling you about what that approach is, we took some time to sit down and ask her some questions, and she’ll explain it for you.

TMN: This track isn’t exactly what we’re used to hearing from “Twerk” tracks. It’s a great track, but it isn’t extremely abrasive. What was your approach to making it?

Ma-Less “I feel like some producers take this harder “trap-like” approach to twerk, not all of them, but I always see it as more energetic and fun and I tend to gravitate towards that vibe. I started out with the intention of making a bootleg to be honest, and it evolved into this energetic and fun track that I felt could stand alone. I out of impulse added my own vocals, and it fit so well that I just ran with it.”

TMN: Do you have any other fun tracks like this coming our way?

Ma-Less “Honestly, I have a bunch of super chill tracks I’ve been sitting on that I might release. It doesn’t quite sound like anything I’ve released before, but it’s something that came from the heart, so I hope my supporters are receptive to it.”

TMN: Not only are you a producer, but you did the vocals on this track as well. You’ve also worked with one of the biggest legends in mid tempo music, Munchi. How did that collaboration come about?

Ma-Less: “That is all in part to DJ Blass, he’s a phenomenal reggaeton producer from Puerto Rico, who’s produced for artists like Daddy Yankee. I met him at a Moombahton Massive in Miami, and we were just talking and he goes “I want you to do vocals.” As someone who’s been told to shut up while singing (yes, it was THAT bad) all while growing up I was taken aback, but I recorded myself saying random one offs like “DJ Blass” “El Artesano” etc and sent it to him and he in turn showed Munchi when he was hanging out with him in Miami. All of a sudden I was getting hit up to go to Miami at 3am via twitter to do vocals. I had to work the next day, but I begged to get cut early and then hauled ass to Miami. When it came time to do vocals I was so nervous and didn’t know what to say. We then got really fucked up and at that point I repeated whatever was said to me ahahaha I think we recorded over 200 samples of me saying the most vulgar shit some of which of course was used with Sucia Anthem. It’s pretty crazy to think how it all happened, but I’m super grateful that it did. It’s brought so many amazing events and people into my life it’s been amazing.”

Munchi x Maless
Sucia Anthem

TMN: You’re a key component of what may be the best event on the east coast. How did Shake ‘n’ Bass come along? 

Ma-Less “Well, me Big Makk and Dr Khan (also known as the Moombah Mafia) came together through the love of Moombahton. We were the only ones who fucked with the sound in Orlando. We had a night at a small dive bar in the Milk District called Spacebar. The owner Tommy Mott was a DJ himself, and gave us a chance. No one really showed up, but I think we got to develop our sound and really get to know one another. Around the same time we started DJing at this bottle service douchey nightclub. I hated it, but it was a way to expose Moombahton to a crowd who had NO IDEA what it was. The crowd got crazier and crazier each week, but then we were let go for not playing enough hip hop (which is ironic because we actually play quite a bit.) I considered it a blessing- I haven’t been there since- but what was shocking was that people were really pissed we were let go. Around the same time the owner of Backbooth approached us as well as this investor; it was like the stars aligned and Shake ‘n Bass was born. We’ve since gained notoriety around the world, and it’s anything beyond what I imagined it to be. What’s cool too, is the crew is like family now, and we have some amazing diehard supporters who show us immense love.”

TMN: We know a lot of crazy stuff has gone down at Shake ‘n’ Bass. What is the craziest thing you have experienced so far?

Ma-Less “I have several. hHaving girls twerk on a cake while 12th Planet & Doco stopped by is definitely one. Looking up during one of my sets to see a girl completely removed her shorts, and was twerking with a g-string on. Having guests like DJ Blass, Craze, Swizzymack, DJ Funk, and many others who I look up to come through to play. The many infamous lap dances I’ve received- I mean I could go on, it’s a pretty wild ass night. People really let their guard down and embrace their inner ratchet, and I love every minute of it.”

TMN: We see you’re very into felines. It really seems common nowadays that a good majority of producers love cats. Why do you think producers and DJs love cats so much, besides the fact that they may be the cutest, cuddly creatures in the world?

Ma-Less “The cuteness and cuddliness aside, because that’s a given, I personally love their independence and their loyalty to their owners. They’re not just gonna love everyone that walks through your door, so when they are affectionate it really means something. Also as a DJ/producer, with traveling a lot, they’re the best cute and cuddly pet to have. You give them plenty of water, plenty of food, a box to shit in, and they’re really self sufficient.  You don’t have to worry about taking them out to piss and stuff; it’s perfect. Plus they just chill on your lap while you make tunes; you can’t beat that!”

TMN: It’s becoming a trend to combine genres lately. People will take trap and dubstep, and call it hybrid trap. What do you think will be the next big genre? 

Ma-Less “I have no fucking clue to be honest. With the internet and technology, and the easy access to DAWs, I feel like anything goes. Everything comes and goes so quickly now, that it’s stupid to try and keep up and slap a label on everything that pops up. I love it honestly. I feel no musician should be restricted to one sound or genre. It kills me when fans get upset when an artist steps out of their comfort zone, I think it shows how brilliant they are, and as a fan it makes me respect them that much more. As an artist I say as long as you make and play what you love, one can only hope that the crowd will fuck with it. That’s what I try to do at least, and my supporters seem to really vibe with it, so that makes me happy.”

TMN: A while ago, we remember seeing someone say there should be a Shake ‘n’ Bass tour. We think it would be pretty cool to have it as a traveling event. Maybe a different producer in each town. Do you think this will ever be a possibility? What cities would you hit?

Ma-Less “God I hope so. It’s just hard to plan, because not many promoters are willing to fly and accommodate 3 artists. I’m sure at some point we can take SNB on the road. I know people everywhere that want to come to Orlando just to experience it, so if we can bring it to them it’d be amazing. Hopeful that it’ll happen. I mean everywhere ahaha I’d like to hit up the West Coast L.A., Vegas, Arizona, Colorado, Texas, definitely the birthplace of Moombahton D.C., Philly, NYC, Boston, shit Europe, Central & South America, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand. I can honestly say we have homies in each of these places that said we should come through to play. Even if I go solo, I want to see it all.”

TMN: Ghost producing has been a fairly common topic lately. What are your thoughts on ghost producing? Do you think the ghost producers are wrong for doing it?

Ma-Less “I know people that ghost produce and they love it, because they have no interest in DJing, or putting on a show, or the politics and bullshit that comes with all of it. They want to sit in a studio all day, make amazing tunes and get paid, and I respect that. I honestly wouldn’t mind ghost producing for others, but I wouldn’t want someone to do it for me. If I ever did, I would definitely give credit where credit is due. I give props to people like Benny Benassi who give their ghosts credit. It’s not like it hurt his career or anything, and I feel people hold him in a higher regard because of it- at least I do. Basically ghost producing is not a new concept and it’s not going away anytime soon, so why not be open about it?”

TMN: Another popular subject these days is “Like For Download”. Facebook is banning incentive based likes, and some say it is pointless with Facebook’s reach algorithm. What are your thoughts on the matter?

Ma-Less “I do (did?) FB likes for DL, because sadly promoters look at that as a big deciding factor to book an artist. To be honest, I’m so fucking sick of Facebook. The sooner someone comes up with an amazing alternative for artists to share their music with everyone, (and not just other artists. Which I feel kinda more so describes soundcloud,) the better off we’ll all be. Honestly it blows and really puts independent artists at a severe disadvantage.”

TMN: A lot of people tend to ask artists who they would collaborate if given the opportunity. We’re honestly more curious about who you would eat with, and what you’d eat. If you had a chance to grab a bite anywhere with any artist alive or dead, who would it be, and what would you eat?

Ma-Less “Ahaha damn… Who would I eat with, and what would I eat? I would wanna eat crab legs with Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix. I don’t know why, but it sounds fucking amazing”

TMN: What would you talk about? 

Ma-Less “Music of course. I would want to know their aspirations, how they see the differences between music then and now, and I would want to know how they feel reflecting on the impact they had on… well everything really. I listen to all kinds of music, but I have this deep love for classic rock.”

TMN: We have one final question for you. Let’s say you came in contact with a genetic engineer. He develops a way for you to communicate with cats. What would you speak with cats about? 

Ma-Less “If I could speak to my cats directly, I would tell them I love them and thanks for the cuddles; not so much the hair balls. Then I’d wanna know why the fuck they spazz out for no reason at 4am. I wanna know how they communicate with one another, without making a sound. Why they gotta break all the goddamn glasses. I’d ask them what I’d need to do, so I can be a cat in my next life, and why they always wanna watch me poop ahaha”

Flosstradamus talk about Lollapalooza, Deep Dish Pizza & The Matrix [TMN Exclusive Interview]


Very few artists can ever truly be called visionaries, but Flosstradamus are just that. Over two years since they released their remix of Major Lazer‘s “Original Don,” the duo have established themselves as luminaries of the trap genre, playing a pivotal role in bringing the genre to the forefront of the electronic and hip-hop music scenes. Though they’ve had plenty of naysayers along the way, the group have helped prove that not only is trap music not just a fad, but it’s an integral part of the future of music. The two have paved the way for countless of our favorite artists here at TMN, inspiring a whole generation of artists along the way. Their latest single, “Rebound,” showcases the pair’s passion for creativity, while also demonstrating their versatility and ability to adapt to a constantly shifting musical landscape. All that really means is that Flosstradamus should continue being a power in the scene for years to come.

We caught up with Josh and Curt at this year’s Lollapalooza and found out what they had to say about the trap genre, their plans for the future, and their festival experiences among other things.

TMN: First of all, how does it feel to be playing Lollapalooza, especially two years after you were banned from performing in the city of Chicago? Has it been kind of like a homecoming for you?

Josh: Oh dude, it’s awesome man. This is our hometown, so hometown crowd, especially after being banned and getting kicked off of Mad Decent Block Party here and all that, so it means a lot for us. It’s Curt’s birthday today–there’s a lot of special things coming together. This is the fourth time we’ve played Lollapalooza, all of our family and friends are here, it’s just perfect man. It’s just perfect.

TMN: That’s awesome man. How does it compare to other festivals you’ve played at this year? Just as you mentioned, it’s Curt’s birthday, it’s a homecoming, so this one must be more meaningful to you.

Curt: This one was definitely more surreal than a lot of them, but we’ve been doing a lot of the Mad Decent Block Parties throughout the summer and those have been great. We’re always touring with all of our friends, like Diplo, Dillon Francis, Riff Raff, all those dudes.

TMN: So it’s really just like a huge party for you guys.

Curt: Yeah, it’s just good. It’s like a fun little road trip with our friends, so those have been really good, but I mean nothing can beat this. This is Lolla. It’s hard to even explain.

TMN: Exactly, you’ve got the city of Chicago, urban atmosphere…

Curt: Yeah, looking at the skyline from the stage was crazy.

Josh: Dude, that’s so dope with the skyline. That’s a great view.

TMN:  One thing we wanted to mention, it’s amazing to see just how much trap has expanded in the last few years, to the point that we now even have subgenres of trap. As true pioneers of the genre yourselves, what are your thoughts on how it’s evolved so far, and where do you see it heading into the future? What ways do you think you can push that expansion?

[Trippy] aywy. – Murder


We decided to turn down for relaxation last night because sometimes we like to sit at home by ourselves on a Saturday night with nothing but a glass of wine, a laptop, and music to vibe out to. We all know what happens when you open up a fresh SoundCloud tab and start going through your feed – scroll, scroll, OH OK THIS IS NICE, scroll, scroll, etc. When you follow people who just repost everything that sounds way too neat (guilty), you begin to wonder where the secret stash is hidden. Well ninjas, after hours upon hours of getting lost in an inception of beats, we found something that truly resonated well with us thanks to beat master, aywy. (short for Abstract Youth).

The Sydney producer (and Co-Founder of Flow-Fi) gives us an entirely new reason to fall more in love with the Aussies than we already are. Last night (or this morning their time), the beat doctor pumped some life into our lackluster feed with his latest 2 minute and 32 second banger, “Murder”. With its killer drum patterns, a bloody beat progression, and a haunting sub, “Murder” makes you feel as if you are literally about to be sent to your demise via sound frequencies. Prepare for some anxiety with this one because shit is about to get real.

[Minimal Trap] Elliphant feat. Skrillex – Only Getting Younger (NGHTMRE X Imanos Remix)

Elliphant feat. Skrillex
Only Getting Younger (NGHTMRE X Imanos Remix)

Any time we come across a song with Skrillex in the title, we automatically stop whatever we are doing to press play. With a new frontier on the horizon for the foward thining producer, we realized that Skrillex continues to push his sound in both the weirdest and most intricate direction. Producers from all over can’t seem to figure out what it is about him that makes him so ahead of the game, but until someone figures it out, we get to enjoy the twists and turns people add to his tracks.

Just recently, Skrillex teamed up with Swedish artist, Elliphant, for their heavy festival banger, “Only Getting Younger” in which we instantly fell in love with the this music bae. Today is an even better day for both Elliphant and Skrillex because Mad Decent just unleashed the next wave of official remixes for “Only Getting Younger” which means SoundCloud is about to have a major meltdown because of it.

LA and Vancouver producers, NGHTMRE and Imanos, linked up and put their signature spin on “Only Getting Younger” in which we were forced to put our stanky faces on. With its dark, minimal progression, and trap-style stabs, NGHTMRE and Imanos took this Skrillified anthem and transformed it into something out of this world. Our first reaction when we first heard this is not appropriate to say, but we can leave you with a censored version in which we said: “holy balls of [insert profanity here].” With that in mind, we hope you enjoy the brief psychosis you’re about to endure.
