Golden Coast Ft Sirah
Futurist (Sirah Remix)
We’ve covered the original, and now Golden Coast‘s “Futurist” gets a trapped out treatment courtest of the Grammy award winning Sirah. Not only does she flip the tune from a indie pop masterpiece into a hip-hop jam unnaturally well, Sirah decided to go ahead and rip a verse as well. Needles to say Sirah backs up her award with ease, and she’s opened the door for Golden Coast in a big way. Their falsettos are clean and clear and balance out her seasoned flow perfectly on the second half of the track. Hopefully in the future we can get an actual collaboration between these two, because if this remix tells us anything, they could make a huge tune together.
Discharge (Original Mix)
It seems like every week we’re writing up another gifted youngster. A few weeks ago, we wrote up the stunning rendition of Bon Iver’s “Blood Bank” from 14 year old Spencer Barnett, and today we’re enamored by another teen prodigy.
We tend to see these teen sensations more so in the electronic realm, and with good reason. The beauty of musical production in the 21st century is that anyone with a laptop, some software, and a background in musical studies can become a producer and possibly make a career out of it. It has been done by teenage all-stars Martin Garrix and Oliver Heldens, both who disrupted dance music trends with their signature styles. Spinnin’ Records hosted Martin Garrix’s chart-smashing single, “Animals,” and they may have their newest teen superstar with Curbi.
Today, Curbi‘s debut single, “Discharge,” was released on Spinnin’ Deeps’ Soundcloud after being previewed on Oliver Heldens’ Heldeep Radio Show. The 16-year-old British producer has truly polished production, and has apparently been paying careful attention to the recent surge in future house beats.
This rowdy club tune exudes a future aura immediately upon hitting the play button, and the UK producer takes fans on a space adventure complete with depth-defying synth stabs and ghostly bass wobbles. With a monstrous entry such as this, the sky’s the limit for Curbi and we will be watching him very closely to see how quickly his career blossoms.
Lil Wayne & Kanye West
Lollipop (1DAFUL 'G-house' Remix)
First off, I may be alone here, but I REALLY miss Tha Carter III era Weezy. With that being said, 1DAFUL returns with a another gigantic remix with one of the first and most popular singles off of that great Lil’ Wayne album, “Lollipop.” Juggling a G-House and trap hybrid, these Canadians are continuing their trend of dancefloor ace in the holes with gut wrenching bass, shifty and buzzing synths, and a deep groove you can unashamedly shake your booty to. Hip-hop and house are coming closer together every day with these types of remixes, and it’s been a fun experience to see what producers like 1DAFUL have under their sleeves next.

Love Me Like You Do (ATB Remix)
Here’s a quick little history lesson for any dance music newbies that just became accustomed to the scene over the past year or two. When the EDM boom came to America, it was predominantly lead by a clique of European DJs/producers that were finally able to take their aspirations to the next level. One instrumental artist within the aforementioned group has been recently locked away in the studio. You probably guessed who it is, but if you haven’t, we’ll fill you in – ATB.
This storied German producer can be defined by his uplifting melody-driven anthems that teeter on the line between progressive house and trance. To kick off 2015 in an epic fashion, ATB has remixed songstress Ellie Goulding’s single “Love Me Like You Do” off the soundtrack of everybody’s favorite Valentines Day movie, Fifty Shades of Grey. The German powerhouse overlays an assortment of galactic chord progressions, engaging synth trickles, and electrifying kick drums to reassert his dominance as a pioneering producer. To gift his loyal fans for his support, ATB has uploaded the track for free and it can be downloaded here.
Reckless (Original Mix) // @BlackBootsX
Black Boots have an absolutely bone crushing sound that has main stage written all over it. Their latest original, “Reckless,” is aptly named, because whenever it’s on, that’s how you’ll be acting. With a melting pot of genres thrown into the mix, Black Boots finds themselves in a similar vein to Jack Ü with this insane new tune, so don’t be surprised if any of you Ultra festival goers hear this tune quite a bit in the near future. We’re very happy, as always, to premiere this massive tune with Run The Trap, and hope you are ready to kick off festival season in a big way with this fresh Black Boots original. If you’re hitting that hump day slump, “Reckless” is exactly the kick in the pants you need to get back in gear and finish up your week with a bang.
New York native Third Culture sets out to expand your mind with every song he makes. “Falling” epitomizes his commitment to his craft with an unparalleled amount of sonic architecture; he manages to create an entire universe within just a short 6 minute span. From the chilled out, yet cutting riffs to the mind bending interplanetary synths, “Falling” finds its footing within a comforting and inspiring atmosphere that thrives on the allowance of building up to multiple resounding and cathartic resolutions throughout the tune. If you’re in need of a true shake up in your musical consumption, Third Culture has got you covered. The influence in classical training and multiple genres is extremely evident in his work, and “Falling” upholds his standard of excellence to the highest extent.

Dreadbots (Extended Mix)
Italy’s Cyberpunkers have previously previewed “Dreadbots” on their Soundcloud, but now the provocative duo are dishing out the full song for streamers with this Music Ninja premiere. Classic electro like this is becoming harder to come by. What I like about this particular original is that it takes from reggae to spice things up a bit. Their identifiable punk attitude is perfectly present in this, making it a rager for the dancefloors, especially in the Europe area where electro is still reigning strong. I must warn you, the main bassline is probably going to stick in your head; it’s one of those simple melodies that is almost hypnotic. “Dreadbots” comes out tomorrow, February 26th on Tasty, so if are enjoying the bustling beat, then check back online tomorrow for a link to snag it!
