Just Cant Try
Fans of Goldlink will likely recognize the name Louie Lastic for his production credits on three consecutive songs on The God Complex–“Bedtime Story” being our personal favorite. Even as Goldlink has continued to ascend, Lastic’s chosen to keep a low profile, with relatively blank slates on social media and no solo releases of his own. As a fellow DMV-native, it’s somewhat safe to assume that Lastic is an in-house producer of sorts for Goldlink and, therefore, at least partially, albeit quietly, responsible for the “future bounce” movement.
Yesterday, Lastic, who seems to have a similar affiliation to Soulection as Goldlink, released his debut solo track and, it’s everything you’d hope from him and much more. “Close2u” carries the signature bounce that can be found in Goldlink’s music with soulful undertones that will have your head-nodding from the get. Although there’s certainly a “future” aesthetic going on, Lastic simultaneously gives a nod to classic hip-hop production utilizing a masterfully chopped Maxi Priest sample and a perfectly placed backing string section. Without a single dull moment, this dynamic production is hopefully the first of many from the talented producer.
Trap Queen (Naderi Remix) [Free Download]
The Australian producer Naderi is here with an official remix for the iconic Fetty Wap single “Trap Queen.” You’d expect a friend of Flume to make top shelf future bass, and that’s just what happens with this cut. It will turn naysayers of the original into fans, as the execution of this was, dare we say, perfect.
Naderi is coming off a remix of “Aerial Love” by Daniel Johns that was pretty dope, but what the Sydney songster did with “Trap Queen” is next level. With the intro largely being driven by the vocal, there’s a huge anticipation of energy for when the drop actually comes in, and when that happens, the magic is set free. In keeping things as original as he could, Naderi showcased why he’s someone who eyes and ears need to be on.
NGHTMRE just doesn’t stop. He’s here with a Mad Decent original called “STREET” that Skrillex played at Ultra. If NGHTMRE was going for an epic trap anthem, he got it. What makes this even more impressive is the way the song develops from beginning to end. His superior sound design and arrangement talents are evident in this hit that has potential to be played out the rest of the year. He doesn’t hold back, and the result was something worthy of praise from the best of the best, including Bassnectar and RL Grime. This super charged single is one of NGHTMRE’s dopest tunes yet, but he’s surely got more up his sleeve. “STREET” is up for grabs for free, or if you’d like to support the release, it is purchasable on iTunes.
What Are We Waiting For (Jose Nunez Club Remix)
There’s just something about summertime that brings out the best in dance music. Producers seemingly focus on warm-weather, feel-good beats, encapsulating what is the most adored season for most. Today is no different, as we bring you a sultry, groovy, and downright infectious remix from the Big Apple’s own, Jose Nuñez.
Putting a tech house spin on Spanish international pop star Wiltay, Nuñez breathes some dance intensity into “What Are We Waiting For.” Latin flavor can be heard throughout, bringing styled-out grooves, rhythmic percussion and enveloping vocal samples. Everything culminates together, boasting a true Miami pool party vibe, and one that’s left us exploring travel sites for any last minute deals.
Nuñez has packed out countless clubs and doled out more than 30 top 20 hits, and today’s release shows that he has no plans of stopping anytime soon.
Fish From Japan are returning with the Dirty City Nights EP, and the first listen is coming to the world from the ninjas. Their house roots are doused in sultry disco vibes. With two tracks that play off each other this good, there are not many other one-two punches that are as strong as these. Misshapen is the imprint that backed Dirty City Nights.
The EP starts off with the title track, which keeps things more disco than the second single “Crying Out.” The vocal is simply luscious, and the smooth production has us ninjas grooving much harder than we usually do when we get some juicy house. “Crying Out” has a slightly different mood to it than the first single, but it still shares the intoxicating vocal and crisp basslines. Out of the two, it’s hard to pick a favorite, but comment with which you dig more!

SMLE is a duo we’ve fallen head over heels for in the last year or so. We’ve featured and heavily consumed pretty much their entire catalog of remixes from their cover of Michael Bublé’s “Feeling Good” to most recently having the pleasure of premiering their remix of Vaults’ “One Last Night” just a few weeks ago, as well as loads in between; and I think it’s pretty safe to say much of our eclectic staff has happy devoured at least a slice of SMLE’s repertoire in the process. Today, SMLE moves forward in a big way, in essence, from scratch after completely wiping out their Soundcloud and starting fresh with all new original music. “Every Chance You Get” -a tune encapsulating all of that previous success behind layers of analog instrumentation in the form of funky guitar lines, a vibrant synth progression and a booming underbelly- is the first to surface from SMLE 2.0, and a great one at that. On top of that, everything put out by the pair is performed and recorded live which is a breath of fresh air in today’s overly saturated dance climate, and we’ve been skipping gleefully to their new incarnation from the moment we came into contact with it. Do your ears a favor, and stream “Every Chance You Get” above.
