[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.

[Hip-Hop] Joey Bada$$ – Unorthodox (Prod. DJ Premier)

Mountain Dew’s Green Label Sound has brought together a dream duo with Joey Bada$$ and DJ Premier. With Joey’s Brooklyn twang and old school flow over Premo’s patented spins, it feels like the track was pulled straight out of 1995 (the year he was born in case you wanted a fun fact). As he’s been doing for the past few months, the young New Yorker delivers lyrical complexity far beyond his years, leaving us to wonder just how potent he can be as an emcee.

[NEW] Iron and Wine – Lovers’ Revolution

Sam Beam, aka Iron and Wine, has been known for his delicate folk rock and heart-wrenching tales — my personal LP favorites being 2002′s The Creek Drank The Cradle and and 2004′s Our Endless Numbered Days — nearly leading and inspiring that niche corner of music for good chunks of time. But on his newest song, “Lovers’ Revolution,” he shifts away from that sound, instead dabbling in brass-heavy arrangements perfect for a free-form night at the local jazz club. It’s an interesting change, and one that longtime fans might have to get used to, but it shows that Beam hasn’t lost one drop of that creative blood that propelled his career in the first place. Listen in below.

Iron and Wine’s fifth album, Ghost on Ghost, comes out April 16th on Nonesuch Records.

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.

[Electronica] MMOTHS – All These Things feat. Holly Miranda

Listening to “All These Things” by Irish producer MMOTHS and Brooklyn songwriter Holly Miranda feels like watching a blanket of ominous clouds creep across a bright blue sky. It’s moody and ambient, charged with tingling, throbbing little electronic effects — such as an unlikely poignant screeching sound that gives goosebumps — and layered atop with Miranda’s smokey, sensual croon. If dark and tantalizing is your thing (how could it not be?), then you can’t miss out on this one.

All These Things (feat. Holly Miranda)

MMOTHS’ will release his new Diaries EP on March 4th.
