There’s a new dubstep producer on the block and his name is Midnight Tyrannosaurus ladies and gentlemen. With a sound that’s somewhere in between Datsik and Excision with a little bit of Protohype thrown in, he’s really something special. Heavy bass and nasty wobbles define the track and we were blown away with how clean the production is. This is some underground ish that needs to be heard.
Duke Dumont has become one of the premier producers in the electronic music world and once again he delivers with a fantastic remix of “Love Sublime”. His polished and crystal clean sound permeates through this dark and funky track making it known to everyone that this is a Duke Dumont piece of art. While there’s no “drop” with fat bass and big synths this one get you moving in a completely different way. We’ve always thought Duke Dumont presented a more sophisticated side of EDM and we’re sticking by that statement. This is EDM all grown up.
Fans of the ID track that was released by Armada Music a little while ago needn’t worry about who made the excellent track. The soulful and melodic tune is an MBP remix of “Tarida” and it’s yet another excellent track from one of the best record labels in the world. A stark contrast to most popular EDM tracks out there, this song has beautiful saxophone sounds and a light and airy sound to it that will make you feel as great as the song is. We’re definitely excited to hear the upcoming tune “Mira Bella” from MBP and Henry Pfr, but for now you can download “Tarida” for free and enjoy that until the next release.
It’s been a little while since we’ve heard from Starkillers, but he’s now back in full force with Tony Junior and the two have a banger that’s sure to please any EDM fan. The mix of Tony Junior’s big room sound and Starkillers very Sander van Doorn like sound is a winner. Blaring synth and big bass is always a fantastic combo and “Total Destruction” has those two elements in spades. When you think of a track that’s a festival killer this is what you should have in mind.
If you haven’t heard of the NYC duo of Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, better known as The Chainsmokers, you’re seriously missing out. An impressive 2013 has set them up for an even bigger year in 2014 and they’re already starting the year off with a bang by releasing their track “Selfie” on Steve Aoki’s label Dim Mak Records. The last ten consecutive, yes ten, Chainsmokers remixes have charted at #1 on Hype Machine and they’ve seen support from big names such as W&W, Afrojack, Michael Brun, Tiesto, and Adventure Club. These guys don’t just make great music, they’re some of the nicest people we’ve met in the industry and when no one else wanted to do an interview with us they graciously accepted our offer. They’re great personalities and their excellent sense of humor will win you over if their music doesn’t, but we highly doubt their eclectic blend of indie, progressive, and pop won’t have you hitting repeat over and over again.
It seems like everyone is remixing Tove Lo after The Chainsmokers released their filthy remix of her song “All The Time”, but few artists have been able to create something nearly as good as their remix. Keys N Krates were up for the challenge though and their trap remix passes the test with flying colors. The slow and seductive beat is perfect for Tove Lo’s vocals and this track kind of makes us want to hear these dudes do a remix of Lorde’s song “Team” which has a very similar sound. While RL Grime and Flosstradamus get all of the attention from trap fans, people need to start paying way more attention to Keys N Krates, especially if they keep putting out hits like this.
While we wait on the highly anticipated Starvation 3 mixtape from Florida rapper Ace Hood we’ve got a leak to hold us over. “FYFR”, which stands for “Fuck Your Favorite Rapper”, goes hard and the lyrics say a lot about how Ace Hood views other rappers in the industry. It’s definitely on the darker side, this is not the Ace Hood that made “Body 2 Body”, it’s the guy that did “Hustle Hard” and “Bugatti”. We aren’t complaining because there are way too many soft rappers out there now, the rap game needs a dude who isn’t afraid to be heavy.
Kid Ink is one of the more underrated rappers out there right now, but last year he enjoyed quite a bit of success with his track “Show Me” and now he’s got another potential hit on his hands entitled “Never Going Back”. His slow flow complements the beat produced by The Featherstones perfectly and his lyrics are fire as always. “Never Going Back” is a leftover from Kid Ink’s MOL Recording sessions and is available for free here with no tags.
Check out this hilarious video featuring bass music giant Borgore and hip-hop heavyweight Waka Flocka Flame opening up to their fans via a Reddit Ask Me Anything session. Waka clears up comments about Miley Cyrus and Borgore lets the fans into how he keeps the girls flocking to him. In an all out confession, find out what it is that Borgore and Dim Mak label boss Steve Aoki have a bet on, what Justin Bieber has to do with the Borgore and Waka Flocka Flame’s collaboration “Wild Out” and what exactly it is that will guarantee you the girls’ attention…all according to Borgore and Waka.
The trio from Amsterdam known as Yellow Claw know how to make some good music, so when we heard they were working on a remix of “Dynamite” we got pretty excited. The guys did not let us down and their version is easily one of the best remixes of the track. We never really thought of this song being remixed as a trap song, but Yellow Claw made it work here. It’s definitely a little darker than the original, but we like it just as much. Quintino has already shown major love for the remix so we have no doubts you guys will love it as well.
