[Album Review] MartyParty – MVP

A couple days ago MartyParty dropped a massive trapped out LP titled, MVP. Featuring everything from Purple Trap to Glitched out Dub, and all of it is original. Some notable tunes you don’t want to miss is this intro titled “MVP”, which drops some clever samples and a heavy 808 infused beat. Possibly the catchiest tune on the whole EP, “All In The Game” dropping a funky 8-Bit melody backed with massive synths and heavy bass. Probably the most unique track is “Angry Beethoven” and it features some laser infused wobbles and melodic chords that come together flawlessly. “Big Block” is the filthiest tune on MVP, and it brings some grimey hard hitting Dub mixed with swirling synths, that hit at all the right times. If you want to check out all 16 tracks on the EP, click here.

[HOT] Everything Everything – Kemosabe

Is it too late to add “Kemosabe” to the Top Songs of 2012 list? Shredding guitars and zippy percussion mix in with a soaring, sky-high chorus full of pretty falsettos, an unbelievable hook, and the kind of oomph that’ll make you want to punch the air with your fist. During the bridge, when the song shifts gears for just a second, the way it transitions and allows a momentary breath is mesmerizing. But really, Manchester art-rockers Everything Everything pack a sharp, attacking energy that, from start to finish, keeps the track from losing even just a hint of momentum and keeps you on what feels like an exhilarating roller coaster ride.

Everything Everything

“Kemosabe” is the new single off the band’s forthcoming album, Arc, out January 14th.

[Electronica] Little Dragon – Sunshine (Shlohmo Remix)

R&B-infused electronica gets slapped with slowed down, drowsy vibes when Sweden’s Little Dragon meets up with Los Angeles’ producer Shlohmo. The result? The cheery, anthemic original “Sunshine” is flipped into a hazy, lo-fi track whose ambience sucks you in like a rolling fog. Get lost by checking it out below:

Jessie Ware – Running (Disclosure VIP Remix)

UK producer duo Disclosure reworked “Running” back in February, but during a set on Boiler Room TV just the other night, they unleashed an even more ravaging, fierce VIP remix of the Jessie Ware track. How intense was it? Well, let’s just say that hours after it aired, it was ripped onto YouTube and spread like internet wildfire — despite the numerous attempts, as you’ll hear below, to deter folks from doing just that. The intermittent talking over the track might be a tad distracting, but I promise it’s well worth the listen.

Kanye West – White Dress (Alternate Version)

After the successful released Tarantino and RZA film Man with the Iron Fist and acclaimed soundtrack, the GOOD Music emcee Kanye West releases an extended, alternate version to the movie’s single “White Dress”. This romantic RZA and Tru of the Wu-Tang affiliated soul group Stone Mecca doesn’t stray too far from the original version but offers a polished, more soulful vibe without taking away from Kanye’s well delivered bars. Similar to Ghostface‘s “Wildflower” or “Icecream”, this track offers a nostalgic feel coupled with a beautiful piano line, chill drum chords, and jazzy guitar rip towards the end.

[MP3 Playlist] The Trap Dojo 13

Another week, another Trap Dojo, filled with the very best Trap music the internet has to offer. Sorry this post isn’t on the usual Tuesday, but it has more than enough banging tunes to make up for it. The first track, a huge remix of the Flux Pavillion and Major Lazer track “Jah No Partial” goes hard, infusing the classic roots reggae vocals over all sorts of wild instrumentals, horns, whistles and drums. The Dojo just wouldn’t quite feel right if there wasn’t a track by Ookay near the top of the list and he certainly doesn’t disappoint this week, I dare you not to lose your mind when the whistles drop into the track after the hardstyle breakdown halfway through the track. I have no idea who Kennedy Jones is other than he posted this first song to his Soundcloud last and it is a track that would be sure to pack a dance floor. It seems that we cant go a single week without throwing in a remix of “Clique,” and this week Bird Peterson does the honors. Butch Clancy, or should I say “BU†CH CLΔNCΨ” takes a break from making killer dubstep to make this hard hitting trap mash-up. This isn’t available for free download, but will be as soon as Clancy gets all the kinks worked out. I have loved every single OG mix that Candyland has released, and this mix of J-Kwon‘s “Tipsy” proves that they are one of the best at updating familiar but tired tracks into hyped up bangers. The next several songs all go hard with huge instrumentals and fire-spitting lyrics. The last few songs are a little bit different, M!NT creates a beautiful Lovetrap sound with hip-hop vocals throughout while Kastle is pure Lovetrap, with amazing layered vocals sure to get your head nodding while your heart’s breaking. Lastly, we have something the likes of which I’m sure you’ve never heard before, as 710 Records boss ṪHE ƦξVЁR∑NƉ BLEEⱣ BLOO₱ traps out the Etta James classic “At Last”. Be sure to listen to all of these songs on the best system or headphones you have to catch all the sub-bass and subtle features which make these songs truly magnificent.
