[Hip-Hop] Murs & Fashawn – This Generation (ft. Adrian)

Earlier today, LA-based veteran Murs and Fresno-bred up ‘n comer Fashawn dropped the title track off their upcoming collaborative album. On “This Generation,” the two Cali natives reminisce about their respective experiences growing up over the light, guitar-driven instrumental of Beatnick and K-Salaam, the producers behind the entire project. Both emcees manage to capture the struggles and unifying qualities of their generations without losing the bright, laid-back feel of the west coast.

Stream and cop this strong single below and, if you’re digging it like we are, make sure to grab This Generation when it hits stores on September 25th via Duck Down Music. You can also pre-order the album now on iTunes.

[Dubstep] Foreign Beggars – Apex (Dirtyphonics Remix)

My goodness, Dirtyphonics we bow down to you. This is just a remix and a half, featuring some funky bleeps on the intro mixed with the hard rapping from Foreign Beggars. This original production was done by Knife Party, but this remix enhances the filthiest sounds from the original and makes it a classic face melter. The second drop as just an insane as the first featuring a massive Drumstep section, Dirtyphonics truly pull out all the stops on this tune. Not to mention the flow of Foreign Beggars is flawless over these ridiculous wobbles. Make sure to check out the Original tune to hear some classic Knife Party. Cheers.

[Electro] Kavinsky – Nightcall (3.A.M. Remix)

French DJ/producer Kavinsky is a man that has been integral in bringing the unique, European electro-pop sound across the pond to the USA. Ever since “Nightcall” became synonymous with Ryan Gosling driving around in a pristine, badass 1973 Chevelle in 2011′s “Drive”, his popularity has skyrocketed, and deservedly so. Here Canadian trio 3.A.M. emphasizes the distortion, heaviness and chop made popular by the French electro scene, all the while enhancing the lazy airiness of Lovefoxxx’s vocals in a darker manner. And it’s free for you ninjas! Solid.

[MP3 Playlist] The Trap Dojo: Volume #5

This week has been absolutely massive for Trap music! I won’t bother to tell you about how Trap is conquering and infiltrating all forms of EDM, because, if you have been paying attention over the past couple of months I’m sure you already know (and if you didn’t know that, we welcome you to the wonderful world of the Dirty South). First up Wick-It The Instigator throws some classic dub sounds before switching it back to a straight-up “Dirty South Gangsta” beat. Next is a kid you definitely need to be familiar with because he is blowing up in a HUGE way. Already featured on two of the past Dojos 15 year old ∆lex Young brings us two absolute bangers; the first, a collab with The Hi-Yahs, “So Much” and the booty-dropping “Boomerang”.  Hey, while we’re on the subject, experts in booty dropping, shaking, bouncing and percolating, Bro Safari drop “That A$$” down to the floor once again. Watch out for another huge track from him later today. Another Trap Dojo regular, Ookay remixes a couple old favorites by Sidney Samson and Bingo Players. I hope this guy can keep making such great tracks so consistently, so far releasing 8 tracks in the last month that his Soundcloud profile has existed. Yet another big figure, Luminox, whose Trap mix of Bingo Players “Rattle” has been picked up by the likes of Ministry of Sound, remixes one of the two tracks this week by The Party Squad, bringing those Hardstyle sounds to the streets. The rest of the list basically serves as a who’s who in the Trap scene, with names like Oh Snap!!, gLAdiator, Trill Murray, Gent & Jawns along with a few lesser known names sprinkled in for good measure.

Oh, and one more thing. Here is the link to download all the free tracks this week. Enjoy.

[Synth-Pop] CHVRCHES – The Mother We Share

CHVRCHES The mother we share

Glaswegian three-piece CHVRCHES recently previewed their new track, and from the first listen, we were madly in love with their sound. “The Mother We Share” has all the cut-up vocal samples and poppy beats that you’d expect, but it’s Lauren Mayberry’s voice which steals the show on this track. Mayberry’s vocals have a powerful yet incredibly clear quality to them, allowing her to soar over the smooth synths to create something truly magical and other-worldly. A must-have for fans of female-fronted electro, “The Mother We Share” is out on November 6th via National Anthem/Create Control.

Vaski – Insane ft. Ava

Upcoming Minnesota producer, Vaski, has teamed up with the talented vocalist Ava (who has previously worked with Bassnectar and Lupe Fiasco) to produce a monster, carefully crafted dubstep track titled “Insane”. The seductive humble slow wobbles layered over the beautiful vocals of Ava make this yet another exciting Original from the 22-year-old producer. Thanks to our friends at GDD for premiering the track.

[Rock] Little Lo – Gospel

little lo gospel

Little Lo are a band that seem to combine every known instrument in a way that probably shouldn’t work, but actually does. Take the six-piece’s latest single “Gospel,” for example. There’s a little bit of everything packed away into the 3 minutes 40 seconds of folk-rock, yet it just fits together perfectly, like a musical jigsaw puzzle. Little Lo are also blessed with an excellent vocal partnership in the form of Bailey Glover and Ryan McGill – her soaring vocals contrast with his more modest lines – which seems to hold all their gorgeous Americana-inspired tracks together. Definitely worth repeated listening, “Gospel” is available via Little Lo’s Bandcamp.
