[Hip-Hop/R&B] The Black Opera – Queen of Hearts (Feat. Mayer Hawthorne)

In order to promote the release of their new album, The Black Opera let go of this illustrious single featuring the soulful stylings of Mayer Hawthorne. “Queen of Hearts” is a song about courtship, with the emcees providing insight to  the women of their dreams and how they plan to convert them into royalty. The smooth, mellow production is greatly complimented by Hawthorne’s delicate, fervent vocals. If you enjoy this one, make sure to grab the free download below and check out Libretto: Of King Legend out now.

Zed’s Dead & Omar Lynx – Cowboy (Congorock Remix)

Zeds Dead & Omar Linx, the true pioneers of letting hip-hop and heavy electronic music exist so organically together, gave away their stems on Beatport last year to spark a remix contest. The result was simply a massive success with Butch Clancy, Michael White and Clark Kent submitting their well grounded contributions. We can’t confirm this is a direct result of the contest, but today Congorock unleashed their very own throbbing remix of ‘Cowboy’.

Always with some African-drum influence, the emerging star of the world’s biggest dance floor and producer of the catchiest conceptions (most memorable for ‘Babylon’ and Swedish House Mafia’s ‘One’ remix) infuses his own style and trumps the original with a refreshing take.

Montell Jordan – This Is How We Do It (Viceroy “Jet Life” Remix)

Continuing the epic motto of summertime all the time, Viceroy is back for another warm jam. “This Is How We Do It” was the 1995 number-one hit single by American R&B singer Montell Jordan. It originally featured Jordan singing over an enhanced sample of Slick Rick’s “Children’s Story” and now San Francisco producer and TMN favorite Viceroy brings an ample amount of nostalgia with a funk infused remix. Bright as the sunlight reflecting off the water drops from the skin after a refreshing dip in the pool, Viceroy shows how he does it, every time, in summertime.

[MP3 Playlist] The Trap Dojo #27

This weeks Trap Dojo is divided into four sections. The first track, from thefaded. kicks off with a massive build up that will have you saying “Wait For It” to drop that almost never seems to come. The mood and pace continues to build over the next few tracks, including the UZ remix of “Cowboy” by Zeds Dead, a remix of Baauer’s “DumDum” and climaxing with Alex Young‘s insane remix of Ah Yeah”. The next four songs are all spaced out trap bangers. Starting it off with the deep and jazzy “Ride Up”, heRobust infuses some electro beats, and the other two tracks lay down a big room sound thats still thuggin enough to hear coming out of the trunk of a Cutlass. I should warn you that the next section is going to be an all out assault on your senses. Starting with some dark drumwork in the intro, “Brain Splat” drops a bassline that will leave your head splattered over your backseat like Marvin from “Pulp Fiction”DJ Snake throws some dark trap with a hardstyle twist over French MC, Stromae’s aggressive bars, then Team Bayside High does something crazy and makes the heaviest track we’ve heard to date. Remixing none other than Pantera, they are able to chop the heavy riffs into filthy trap beats, and June gives us some spooky bass to finish. Our final section includes a remix of the “Django Unchained Theme” by Kissy Sell Out,  some Cyber-Footwork from the LOLGurlz and three progressively more emotionally evocative Love trap songs for a beautiful send off.

I hope you enjoyed this trip through the extremes of trap. Download all the free tracks right here
