[Future Bass/Hip-Hop] TRWBADOR – Breakthrough Ft. ESSA

Breakthrough Ft. ESSA

Let’s say you just came out a bit rattled after one hell of a rough day. One of those where you’re too exhausted to run it all off, but your head’s still careening too much to curl up under covers and drift off. Well, lucky for you, TRWBADOR’s got just the dose for you with “Breakthrough.”

One part mellow future bass, one part tailored hip hop verse, the UK based producers team up with Hip Hop legend ESSA for the perfect blend of catharsis and reflection. ESSA’s unobtrusive lyrics flow effortlessly over purifying harp melody, his cadence in tandem with dialed back beats, all calmly glazed over with interludes of producer Angharad Van Rijswijk’s soothing vocals. Perfect for making peace.

All told, it’s a powerful but beautiful piece to get re-centered. It’s honest without overly trying, enlightening without being sappy, impactful without being invasive. It’s highly re-playable. “Breakthrough” is out on May 26th as a digital download–or for all of you analoggers–a 7” will be hitting record stores. Indulge. When it drops, I know I’ll be sitting stereo-side after work, unwinding with a glass of super-manly wine.

[Get Crunk] Clayton’s Friday Party Playlist (Vol 103)


Happy Friday, Ninjas! Once again we’re here to bring you an arsenal of party-inducing tracks that are not only free, but all released in the past week. We have a nice mix of some up and coming producers and a few more well known acts (ahem, The Glitch Mob).

With that being said, we have an important announcement to share with you regarding Clayton’s Friday Party Playlist. Next week marks our two year anniversary of this particular playlist.. That’s right. 104 playlists will have filled you with the need to dance, and we have something special planned to celebrate. That something special is a surprise guest curator, but we’re not spilling the beans just yet.

Once we get through next week’s special guest curator though, I will be gracefully bowing out of the party playlist role and passing the reigns to one of our newest ninjas, Brooke Ferguson. As you’ve come to expect with my playlists, each week will contain at least 10 of the latest party tracks out there. We know that her desire to rage hard will radiate through all of you with each and every playlist she puts out.

One last thing before I go.

No Discrimination FT. DPK (ORIGINAL)

Twerk has been blowing up and it all started will Mr. Collipark. Collipark has produced records for Ying Yang Twinz, Soulja Boy, Mike Jones, Bubba Sparxx and the list goes on and on. Now that he is seeing this movement he created blow up and in a whole new light, he wanted to get with some of the best artists in the game right now and started with Meaux Green!

On May 6th Mr. Collipark tweeted “I’m trying to work with the up and coming guys who are building on the sound we helped make popular. Let’s twerk!” Shortly following that tweet he drops his newest track with Meaux Green titled “No Discrimination,” and it doesn’t fall short from his tracks from the early 2000s! To see legends of his calibre working with up and coming artists is extremely inspiring and a huge accomplishment for those like Meaux Green.

“No Discrimination” expresses how it doesn’t matter who you are or what color your skin is; just let this banger do it’s work and with out hesitation your body will follow! Mr. Collipark is coming back hard and taking the crown starting with his newest Twerk anthem. Yesterday he announced that things won’t be stopping with his Meaux Green collaboration, and will be working on a song with JSTJR and Cutty Ranks in the future as well!

Kingdom (feat. Berhana)

I follow over three thousand artists split between four accounts on Soundcloud and for a while it has been a rarity that an amazing hip-hop record shows up in my feed. This week that wasn’t the case since Jimmy Q got together with Berhana to put out their newest single “Kingdom.” Over the past year Jimmy Q has put out an incredible amount of remixes with his electronic RnB style, but this is the first original from him that features vocals which share the same style as the beats he creates. All eyes on Jimmy Q this year because over a short period of time he’s been performing with Ryan Hemsworth, Saint Pepsi and Odesza; soon enough he’ll be making his way to your city to blow your minds!

[Deep House] Zhu – Faded (Official Video)

Zhu Faded

Zhu has been all over the internet lately and remains to keep a mystical persona. We haven’t been able to crack the code on who he is or what Zhu‘s true story is, but what we do know is he has a mesmerizing voice and impeccable production quality! A few weeks back we covered The Nightday EP when it dropped, and now we are ecstatic to bring you the video for “Faded” directed and edited by none other than the mystery man himself!

The video for “Faded” has a very hypnotizing quality to it; between the sexy introduction and the strobe effect which promptly follows your eyes will be warped to the screen! As the track kicks in you see what we assume to be Zhu walking up the stairs in this massive venue. That was a great touch highlighting the beginning of the song and it’s filtered drums! As soon as the deep bass and drums hit the Zhu logo flashes across the screen and shows a full crowd of french party-goers. The videographers do an amazing job at capturing the avant-garde experience you’d expect from Paris’ most prolific venue The Social Club. As the strobes flash you see a couple of beautiful girls, one up against a wall and one laying seductively on a couch; the minor details like this really added to the replay factor for us!

As things go on, a silhouette figure puts back a bottle and as he puts it down exhales smoke which was a serious mind-fuck. When he finishes exhaling a cloud of smoke, the song breaks into the chorus and refocuses its attention on the sexy girl on the couch putting off some seriously seductive body language. The claps kick in and the video transitions over to go-go dancers on the stage building up to what everybody seems to wait for in dance music… the drop! The drop starts and you see a club filled with people dancing the night away to the deep house vibes Zhu provided.

It seems odd how a video can create such an experience making you feel a part of it or send an overwhelming chill down you spine, but this video did exactly both! Whoever Zhu is, he’s extremely talented and has a very hypnotizing quality to his work! Whether it be his music or his videos, we are extremely excited for what is to come from this elusive creature they call Zhu!
