Jared Evan has always been an innovative and outside-of-the-box, which is why it is hard to group him in a certain category or genre. His versatility in music is also what makes him such a success in the underground market. On the new single “Are We There yet?”, Evan’s explores his versatility over the Statik Selektah soulful beat. Laying down some smooth vocals then some rhymes towards the end, this track is a nice introduction to the collaborative effort Boom, Bap & Blues, dropping February 26th.
Are We Almost There Yet?
We know it’s a sin against music to compare anyone to the Beatles, but one listen to Black Dots‘ new single, “Captain, Won’t You Help Me,” reminded us of just that. Aside from the resemblance, this track had us wishing we had lived through the 60′s.
The new project from Bitmap (and previously Salako) main-man Luke Barwell takes us on a journey through time with their story of sitting on the horizon of the muddy Yorkshire cliffs. Press play, and let your mind wander with the exceptional story telling abilities of Black Dots.
Captain, Wont You Help Me?

After releasing one of the heaviest trap songs we’ve ever heard, a remix of Pantera’s “Walk” featured on this weeks Trap Dojo, Chicago duo Team Bayside High show a completely different side with a beautifully chill remix of one of our favorite songs by The Postal Service. Their Bootleg of “Such Great Heights” features heavy soothing bass lines, chimes and whistles, perfect for sitting back, spacing out and thinking of warm summer nights. After remixing Metal and Indie, who know’s whats next for these talented producers, because clearly nothing is off limits for them to remix and absolutely destroy in any way they want.

The Dirty Dutch Messiah, Afrojack, has had its fair of controversy his latest original “Air Guitar”, set to be the official anthem of Ultra Music Festival 2013. While it does feature the same uplifting attitude on an Afrojack production, many fans disagree of its dubstep overtones. Which I think it is just misleading because these are not exactly “wobbles”, just motherfucking hard basslines (pardon my Dutch). While they are certainly much more permanent throughout the track, leaving little room the melodic parts to stand out, it is still a massive release and we are just happy to move on past his Gangnam Style remix.

The release date has yet to be confirmed.
Dallas producers AFK and Spenca team up for a trap forward remodel of last years infectious ‘Atom’ by Italian duo Nari & Milani. We featured Shape of Lights bootleg remix later that year with its daunting and low bassline, still holding up as a top favorite. Yet Spenca & AFK have come up with an intriguing transformation that hints of dubstep and trap over the original house synths. The result is a clean production of well decorated gritty elements, modernized for consumption.
