[Hip-Hop] Travi$ Scott – Don’t Play (Feat. Big Sean & The 1975)

Travi$ Scott Ft. Big Sean + The 1975
Don't Play

After he first unveiled the song nearly 2 months ago during a live performance at SXSW, fans have been chomping at the bit to get their hands on Travi$ Scott‘s latest single. With a radio rip surfacing a few weeks back under the mistaken title of “1975,” we knew it was only a matter of time before we would finally be able to hear the final version of the track in all its glory.

Although we have to settle for the clean version for now, it’s still abundantly clear that Big Sean and La Flame are not playing around with this one. Travi$’ rapid ascent over the last year has definitely made for one of the more remarkable stories to follow in hip-hop (as chronicled in his recent Houston To Osaka documentary). It’s astonishing just how quickly the young spitter has been able to step out from the shadows of his fellow G.O.O.D. Music/Grand Hustle associates, and establish his own brand. With his debut album Rodeo slated for release later this year, we’re pretty confident the Houston native has a few more heaters just like this stashed away for the summer.

UPDATE: Added the official explicit CDQ version of the track, now with a credited feature from The 1975.

[Samptronic] TNERTLE – Greens EP

tnert

It’s been a little while since we’ve heard from Denver based, Berklee School of Music trained TNERTLE and now we know why. If your memory serves you correctly, which it probably doesn’t after your weekend festivities, we wrote up this groovy two-piece electronica act almost a year ago. Something about Colorado style, electro-hop production caught our ear, and we’ve been hooked ever since.

Just a few days back, Trent Campbell and Kyle Ayervais put out this aptly named Greens EP, more than likely giving a nod to recent events in Colorado legislature. With Campbell laying down smooth and sometimes funky basslines and controlling the midi, Ayervais adds his flair with laid back drum work that’s worthy of any Sunday chill sesh.

These two keep progressing as artists, continually developing their craft. After seeing their live shows, we can tell you that things are only looking up for this young, Denver outfit.

[Alternative] Phoria – Emanate

artworks-000078023868-co1f98-original
Phoria -
Emanate
A haunting elegance surrounds the Phoria soundscape. A culturing of the midnight musing variety: minimalist and mesmerising.
Tranquil beginnings see that new track Emante certainly has the spacious ethereal vibe covered. Demure simmering is eventually eclipsed by a plethora of sound, as a refined slow burn build, comes to fruition in controlled chaos. Cyclic claps and velvety vocals immerse you in introspective contemplation, whilst the finale is submerged in synth, featuring a chorus like crescendo. Delicate atmospherics that are polished to perfection.
The Brighton five piece keep the UK flag flying high, amidst the ever evolving international music scene. Presenting title track Emante, from their forthcoming EP Display. Until June, take solace in this Radiohead-esque release.

[Melodic Dubstep] John Legend – All Of Me (Kasum Remix)

John Legend
All Of Me (Kasum Remix)[FREE DL]

John Legend has to be one of the most difficult people to remix. Having one of the best voices in the industry, taking on “All of Me” has to be a daunting task for an up and coming producer. That’s where Kasum steps in.

This NYC-born, Boston University student has a lot to balance already. Back when I was in college (which I won’t divulge just how long ago that was) I had a hard enough time managing my schedule with classes alone. Somehow this Sophmore found a way to put his spin on a legendary track, and did so in a way that’s ultimately extremely complimentary to the original.

Utilizing the existing piano work and Legend’s voice, Kasum crafted a melodic dubstep tune that charges with emotions. The added drum work brings in anticipation and a little bit of aggression for the razor sharp synths, which gives this tune larger-than-life feel that will get playtime across the blogosphere for months to come.

[Nu-Disco] Pharrell ft. Justin Timberlake – Brand New (Slinger Remix)

Pharrell
Brand New (Slinger Remix)

There is something almost symbiotic about the relationship between disco dance vibes and Mondays. One pulls its listener into visions of happy, sunshine soaked dance floors while the other is slightly more bleak in its undertone, pulling your psyche into a paradoxical direction altogether. Yin and Yang. Sweet and salty. Balance. Which, not to wax philosophically for much longer, is why we love to pair glitzy club tunes with the most dreaded day of the week. Today, the mysterious Slinger popped up with a very driven and elegant slice of disco induced house rhythms that commanded the undivided attention of our cochlear cavities from its onset. Remixing two of the most influential artists of our time can be an arduous task, but Slinger’s slinky kicks and pointed nu-disco percussion paired with the unmistakable and altogether dreamy vocal reverberations of Pharrell and Justin Timberlake has resulted in quite the hooky dance tune in the form of a syrupy Summer nu-disco remix. The vibe painted onto “Brand New” by Slinger is one of high energy poolside day parties, which I think we could all be yearning for right about now. Slinger is most certainly an act to keep your ears tuned into, and you can bet that ours will be too. Check it out above.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #83

chill dojo

Let’s go one deeper and kick off this edition’s proceedings with one of the smoothest sounding tracks to have hit the internet over the last week. KAASI is the man responsible for this aural delight, and you’d be hard pressed to find a pair of ears that could resist the sweet sounds that emanate from this 5 and a half minutes of perfection. From the vocal sampling to the infectious rhythm, nothing that lends its hand to this composition is short of impeccable, and for that it could be nothing less than our track of the week. This next track was covered earlier last week, but is too appropriate for the dojo and so is well deserving of another mention here. Germany’s Dinnerdate has done it once again with another glorious chill house tune to add to his growing collection, with another ascension of the Hypem charts to add to his growing list of achievements. There’s plenty more in the near future from this artist as well. The Germans certainly know their way around these mellow sounds, and Alex Schulz is another one of these skilled individuals to look out for. When it comes to remixing Ed Sheeran’s ‘I See Fire’, Kygo’s version is the one that instantly comes to mind, but you’d be a fool to overlook this edit that takes things into very deep territory. It’s a completely different experience from any other take on this one, and it had us hooked within seconds. A track that’s a little harder to glance over is the latest from RAC, who provides more ample fuel for your summertime playlist with a little help from Matthew Koma on vocals. If you somehow missed the write-up a few days back, then here’s a friendly reminder that you need this new jam in your life right now. More summer music is always a welcome addition to the Chill Dojo, so we’re lapping up these next two from UK producer Lobo. They’re bright and sunny with glints of FKJ’s style at their heart, so you’re guaranteed to be smiling for the entire journey.

Plenty more playful pieces await you as you make your way down this list, so gear up for a few hours of good times and great sounds. Peace out.

Sunday Night Soul [Vol. 24]

Sunday Night Soul

Before we begin tonight, I do want to apologize for last week’s lack of Sunday Night Soul. However, we’re hoping this week’s tasty selection more than makes up for our absence last week. Once again featuring a wide variety of singers and producers, this week’s edition comes packed with plenty of goodies to get you through the night–and into Monday morning. Given that it’s a loaded week for us, we have an enormous amount of material to work with from a stellar cast of artists, including: Pyxis, Memeb, Youth is DEAD, Lyves, Nick Price, King Avriel, Jarreau Vandal, Tink, Devonté Hynes, Rubee Rayne, Blackbear, Super Jay, Todd Zack Jr., Kehlani, MacKenzie, Dpat, Fortune, Esta, El. Train, Go Yama, Marce Reazon and Prizm. Considering it’ll probably take you more than a night to get through all of this, I’ll keep things short and allow you to dive right into the music.
