There is very little music that I have the ability to listen to while I write or do other creative work. That being said, here I sit writing this post while being whisked away to a deserted island accompanied by the stylings of Ace Shocka. The NYU student and music producer has put together a three-track EP that sounds akin to a brilliant future-wave spin on Clams Casino.
The EP could fit perfectly on a label like Soulection, and perhaps even topped by some vocals from the likes of Waldo, GoldLink, or Vic Mensa.
WAV is an exciting start for this young gun, and it’ll be exciting where he takes it from here.

Slinger might’ve called this his festival remix of Stromae’s “Papaoutai” cause it sounds like he took the original song, stuffed it in a racecar, took off with it, and you’re in the passenger seat with no seatbelt on! When I saw Papaoutai in my inbox, I knew this was going to be good, the original was actually my first write up on the site, and probably one of the illest track I’ve heard in a long time! This remix is your Friday night party, so have a great weekend! This is a must listen and a must download!

Hot damn this Enferno remix of Steve Aoki featuring Waka Flocka Flame’s “Rage The Night Away” goes hard, or better yet, it turns the fuck up! From a progressive house build up with vocals that sound like they’re from Justin Timberlake, to Wacka’s signature tag line ” Brick Squaaddddd,” the drop will make you lose your shit, like you see on festival recaps with oceans of people jumping up and down to a banger, just like that. And I know it’s only Wednesday, but the hell with it, let’s start this party early! This is a must listen!

Throwback to 2010, when Myth Syzer and Kaytranada worked on a tune together called “Widescreen,” and little did they know 4 years later their collaboration would resurface and take the internet by storm. With “Widescreen” you get a hip-hop instrumental which could serve as an homage to the late J. Dilla, so all my old-school hip hop fans rejoice, on this Wednesday July 30th, I bring you that new school old school from two producers you shouldn’t be sleeping on! Oh yeah, and if you’re digging this, Kaytranada and his team just announced a Fall European, US tour, so check out the dates above, and get your tickets! This is a must listen and a must download!

FreshNewTracks favorite, Ayah Marar hits us with a new music video to her latest track “Bass Soldiers,” which is also the title of her new EP, released via her own label Hussle Girl. Going back to her Drum n Bass roots, different from the sound we’ve come to know of Ayah, from her collaboration with Calvin Harris on “Thinking About You” and her solo power ballad “Beg Borrow Steal,” Mrs. Marar wanted to give back to the fans and the underground, with this project, for those who felt like they lost her to the top 40 music scene. Have no fear bass soldiers, queen Ayah will remain underground till she dies, so peep this video, and support the EP by copping it on Bandcamp. My stand out tracks off the EP are “Keep Me Up” and “Love Somebody”
