[Hip-Hop] Timbaland – Redbone ft Petey Pablo and Sebastian

Timbaland is back with another preview from his upcoming LP. Bringing together the lyrical stylings of Petey Pablo and Timbo’s brother Sebastian, he recently dropped the intended club banger “Redbone”. A homage to the ladies of the lighter melanin complexion, this is a song made for the twerkers and party people. Although a contrast from many of the synth and electronic sound that the VA mega-producer has become accustomed lately, this track is still classic Timbo style by staying rhythmically ambiguous and allowing the groove settle first before dropping some dope rhymes. The sampling of Lil Wayne’s verse from “Hustle Hard (remix)” is just icing on the sonic cake.

[MP3 Playlist] The Trap Dojo #21

This week we’re coming at you with a huge list of trap bangers to get you through the week. Kicking things off are a couple new names to the dojo, Austin Maddox and Power Strangers with undoubtedly the best use of the “Damn Son” sample that I’ve heard. After this huge track, i’m sure it won’t be the last time these guys will be on the list. HeRobust comes up next with the dubby track “OG Status” from his new EP of the same name, showing some great sampling work, using Big Boi and some classic jazz vocals. Next up is a new remix by D!RTY AUD!O that is certified fresh, just dropping last night. This is everything you would expect from D!RTY AUD!O, chopping up Lil Flip, and throwing in a couple killer trap drops. Loud G hits us with a couple mashups, pairing some fire hot verses by Three 6 Mafia, Gucci Mane and T.I. over a couple classic trap beats. The homie Snails from Montreal is another name you should definitely be keeping an eye on in 2013. After releasing a couple tracks getting some major attention from some major names, he’s kicking the year off right with this massive track. Of course the rest of the list is filled with bangers, before Molduloktopus slows things down a little with his rework of Kendrick Lamar’s “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe”, and Sango finishes things off with some vibes, remixing Craig David into an incredible lovetrap ballad

[Electro-House] Benny Benassi pres. The Biz – Satisfaction (Dada Life Remix)

We have already been blessed with possibly the most massive Trap track of the year, RL Grime‘s remix of “Satisfaction”. But this time Dada Life tackles this tune and drops some of their always satisfying Drum work over the funky melody of the Original. Sprinkled throughout with some swirling synths, and the completely transforming during the second half into some bouncy Electro. Cheers.
