Hip-Hop, Mixtapes, Rap | EaSWay – les bourgeois (Mixtape)

Posted by on May 23, 2015

EaSWay’s new project, Les Bourgeois, is a commentary on the mislead priorities and insignificant desires of a lost generation. EaSWay raps about the good, the bad and the tempting throughout this mixtape and he is never too righteous to deem himself above the rest of his generation. The tape is a mix of songs about love, sex, money, and fame and as standard as that might sound, it is delivered in a way that brings new light on the subjects.

This coming Monday, Black Butter will be making their first official foray in the birthplace of techno, Detroit, with its party on Monday, May 25th at Populux, where Gorgon City, Kidnap Kid, MK b2b Lee Foss, Dantiez Saunderson, Loud Luxury, and Admn will all be gracing the decks. For a UK label, the significance of this is very special as it is a time to prove themselves in a place where dance music roots run deep, and fans are well educated in underground spheres and beyond. Rather than Black Butter’s Detroit showcase being thought of as a judgement day of sorts, it’s more of a display of artistry that can be enjoyed by the masses. In celebration of the party, we’ve put together a showcase to highlight the top talent that will be guiding the Populux crowd to underground dance music enlightenment. Check it out below and grab tickets to the party here.

If you have found yourself here, welcome. Keeping his distance from the interwebs he returns, demonstrating he’s clearly been putting in studio time.

Bass | The Enigmatic HI-LO Gives Us A First Taste Of His Sound With “Crank It Up”

Posted by on May 21, 2015

Future house is becoming a norm now and producers are really having to think outside the box to differentiate themselves from the pack. Bass house, a sub-genre of sorts, has been in the works to find its exact sound with producers like Jauz and Ghastly morphing dubstep and future house into a middle ground. After finding this track through the daily Soundcloud search, it seems that HI-Lo should be added to this list. His debut track, “Crank It Up,” shifts the balance of bass-driven house sounds towards the techier side of things and does not go light on how much bass it uses, which in this case is pretty stellar. You’re going to want to check this kid out as he has already been picked up by Diplo to release the track via Mad Decent on June 25th.
