[Hip-Hop] Alexander Spit – Artesia feat. Action Bronson

Hitting the webs this week is the rising wordsmith, Alexander Spit, dropping a new banger titled “Artesia”. Bringing in a different atmospheric vibe with some vocal samples backed up by drum rips give this track an old school, smooth vibe on this self-produced single. Teaming up with NY emcee Action Bronson, the two deliver some lyrically witty and sick bars about the common elements of weed, women, and women that compliment the feel of the track. The throwback sound of the bars mixed with the psychedelic production make this a solid effort from the LA based emcee. Be sure to check out the track below and listen to more when his first commercial full-length drops January 29th.

Bass Kleph feat Ron E Jones – Flashing Lights Remix EP

Australian jack-of-all-trades, Stu Tyson, aka Bass Kleph does not produce music. He creates experiences. His earliest gigs (even as ex-drummer in a hard rock band) demonstrated a special gift that many artists would kill to posses. Bass Kleph was able to pull in huge crowds, consistently, and give them exactly what they came in for: a fucking good time. And while a lot has happened since he began, producing some of the best dance bangers and reaching Beatport #1 countless of time, it is still important to point out this very fact because it is reflected in his music. Each song is not just made to be listened to, but deliberately crafted to consume both the body and the mind. When you hear a Bass Kleph track, you know you are in for a good time.

This, of course, brings us to his latest release “Flashing Lights”. This single ultimately exposes both the growth and maturity Stu has come as producer. With a silky smooth build up, in part due to vocalist with Ron E, “Flashing Lights” soon transforms into a modern dance floor anthem incorporating harmonic synths and a powerful stomping basslines.

Taking things one step further, Aussie producer Bobby Vena comes in to give the track a more progressive house feel, while Hot Creations’ Bubba executes a deep remix much calmer in nature.

[Hip-Hop] THEBLKHANDS – The Usual Thing (Feat. After The Smoke) (Prod. ILLA)

After releasing the fifth and final single from their debut album, it’s become increasingly clear that THEBLKHANDS are pretty much infallible. With their newest track, the trio has yet another chill-out anthem on their hands. The group’s already proven they have an affinity for those with previous songs like “Smoke Good, Live Good” and “Downtown.” Just as they’ve done with their other tracks, they’ve lined up the perfect collaborators in After The Smoke, who really add the icing atop this cake. For those of you who’ve been following the group’s ascent, make sure to mark March 19th on your calendars, as that’s the release date for their upcoming Serbia LP.

[MP3 Playlist] The Trap Dojo #23

I apologize for the delay with this weeks dojo, but we’re coming at you with so many huge hits this week that i’m sure it will make up for it. Jumping right into it, Team Bayside High takes on the task of remixing a truly classic dance hit, “Make You Sweat” better known as “Everybody Dance Now”. They do all the right things to this remix, with several different trap builds and drops, emphasizing the famous lyrics or their own take on the melody. Next up is the masked man himself, UZ, remixing Birdy Nam Nam. You may have seen this posted earlier this week as part of the Birdy Nam Nam Remix EP. This track is incredibly funky with great drumwork throughout. Butch Clancy continues his Trap Tuesday series with this weeks “Dopeboy”, my favorite trap track of his so far. With huge bass and bells, this is real gangster trap shit to rattle the trunk as you’re driving through the hood. Heroes X Villains, a name who we see far too little of teases us with the full preview of their remix of “Jah No Partial”. Even though they don’t release as frequently as others, every track is fire, and this track proves they are worth the wait. A couple weeks ago, I told you to keep an eye on Snails in 2013, and so far he has lived up to that hype, releasing this massive heavy hitter, as well as a killer dubstep track this week alone. Trap Dojo regular Ookay is back, having just signed to Borgore’s label. “Hey Freak is filled with blazing high synths and some serious footwork set to make you kick up a storm. RaceCarBed just released a new EP this week filled with deep basslines, and oozing with purped out swag. Click the “Buy” link to get the whole EP. Grandtheft, who you probably recognize from his insane collaboration with Diplo kills this remix of “Tuna Melt” that will have you saying “Damn son, where’d you find this sandwich?”. While Dubstep is still not an old genre by any means, there are still a number of tracks that you can consider classics, one of which is “Sweet Shop” by Doctor P. While its always tough to remix a classic, Big Makk keeps it fairly simple, adding some drums to the notoriously high pitched drop, while chopping up the synths only enough to really trap it out, before going really hard in the second half.

A few tracks later, which are all great, but I wont mention because this post is already getting out of hand, comes the cool down section of our dojo training. I never thought I would be putting Justin Beiber on the dojo, but the way this is chopped and screwed into a Future Trill ballad had me playing this one on repeat. Lastly, Huglife seems to have created a subgenre of his own: Indie-Trap. This track shows what i really love about Huglife, whether he’s producing big-room bangers, or remixing indie coffee shop tracks into some chill love trap, its always above par.
