Party, party, party. It’s that time of the week, or shall we just call it the weekend already? For some of you students getting back into class, we hope your schedule doesn’t consist of classes today, and for those of you working, we hope your boss wasn’t a hard ass today. Tonight, you’re free to roam around as you please and get your dance or your drink on; or you can do like some of us ninjas and just relax while kicking on some great tunes. Today, we share with you some incredible free downloads, including a little Latin flavor from some of dance music’s best. This week we highlight works from Rad Cat, FIGHT CLVB, Happy Colors, Anden, as well as Dirt Monkey who closes our playlist out with “Jungle Juice.” We also were forced to include the Ekali x KRANE collaboration because it is just so damn good. Enough chit chat, dive right into the music. Most importantly, #danceirresponsibly.
The homemade pizza loving UK producer Take/Five just independently put out his newest EP, The After Life. Complete with three singles, including a free download of the title track, this EP is a clean break from the usual sound we get from the trap arena.
The great thing about this EP is that not only does each song satisfy a different stylistic craving, but Take/Five kills it with each song. “After Life” blurs the lines between future and trap, something a lot of people try to do, but don’t succeed as well as we see here. “Hell” starts the descent into a more darkened sound whose slow grooves are infectious. “The End” ends the EP with a more industrial blend. We love The After Life and we’re confident you will too. Like what you here? Head over to the digital service of your choice to get a copy.
Easier (Electric Mantis Remix)
It’s been several months since we’ve heard any new material from Electric Mantis, but thankfully the wait is over. Since the explosion of “Flips And Flops, Drips And Drops” three years ago, he’s concocted a slew of innovative remixes, along with the massive Braincase EP, and now this fresh take on Mansionair‘s “Easier” provides the same amount of gusto and hard-hitting bass that he’s made all his own.
There’s a refined sense of sleekness throughout the tune compared to some of his previous work as it juggles the delicacy of the vocals with his signature style, and it truly feels as though Electric Mantis has found the perfect medium between power and poise on this remix. If you dig this one, absolutely check out his original tune “Daybreak” that was released on Majestic Casual a few months back. It’s always great to see a familiar face back on our SoundCloud feeds, and Electric Mantis continues to bring quality material to the table every single time.
In Time (ft. Belle Doron)
Clean and crisp are the first words that come to mind when listening to DROELOE’S latest release, “In Time.” Not only does this describe the production, but vocals from Belle Doron deserve the same adjectives to be applied. Though the lyrics remain simple they guide you through an intrinsic pairing of sounds that leave the listener to experience everything from intense emotion, climactic synth laden lines, hip-hop beats and can’t be missed bass. A beyond impressive track for DROELOE leaving us excited for more.
Even better, the track is available to stream or download, for free, here.
We’re already seeing as many “Bad and Boujee” remixes as we can handle and it won’t stop anytime soon. However, there is one particular remix that has stuck out to us from three acts. The esteemed R3HAB came together with the up and coming No Riddim & it’s different to take on Donald Glover’s favorite tune.
They keep the trap vibe, but bring in some heavier sensibilities for a true festival masterpiece. It has some characteristics of the more simplistic vibe of the likes of Flosstradamus, but incorporates the hybrid style of more intriguing producers. We have no doubt this one will be played out live by DJs all over the world for some time to come. When everyone is desperately releasing remixes for a hype track, sometimes the result is a bit lacking. That’s not the case here, as all three acts bring their A game.
