Billy Chambers is someone I’ve had my eye on for a while, and who has made multiple appearances on Fresh New Tracks. When Billy connects, he connects. He tows the line of pop and rap, using his rapping as a tool rather than the be-all and end-all of his music.

In “Breakdown” Billy expresses some of his successes and tells stories from thus far in his musical career. The bubbly production accompanies his croning and makes for a catchy, exciting and entirely new sound. “You’ve got a whole lot of love, but a broken heart.” sings Billy, showing his talents stretch beyond just being sonically pleasing and in to a lyrical wittiness.

Stay tuned for more from this young DMV representative.

Alternative, Chill | Aer – Keep You Here (Video)

Posted by on August 2, 2015

In preparation for their newest album One of a Kind, the Boston duo Aer drops off “Keep You Here”. An alternative reggae-rap song that entices listeners with soft-sung melodies and booming drums to accompany the hook.

While the video doesn’t add too much depth to the song, it’s a great look in to the setting of the song and shows that Aer is just as positive and happy as they’ve always been. Perhaps a highlight of the song is the short bridge towards the end which comes in with a light trumpet before returning to the upbeat chorus.

If you pre-order their upcoming album, here, you will receive an instant download to “Keep You Here” and two other songs!

Chill | Kygo releases his new single right before his Lollapalooza set

Posted by on July 31, 2015

In lieu of his Sunday headlining performance, Kygo decided to release a brand spankin’ new single just in time for the weekend. Offering a little slower tempo than we are used to hearing from the Norwegian, the song still embodies every other release that we have come to love from the tropical producer. At this point, it’s becoming near impossible for Kygo to release anything but good music. Enjoy!

Do it to me, baby, baby… this track from over at Dirty Soul is a TUNE, and to me it’s this Summer’s “Klingande,” on that progressive meets deep wave, paving the way for that future chill sound, which progresses into bass territory, and I like that! With timeless vocals, and a chord progression that hits you right in that sweet spot, this dutch combo of Lulleaux and FDVM is lethal, press play, and get lost to the groove, happy hump day! This is a must listen!

Bass, Chill, Dubstep | Big_Once Brings The Bass With “Buck Shots”

Tuesday is always a great day for new music and today is no exception. Big_Once who is slated to play this year’s Lollapalooza dropped a fire original in the middle of the night he calls “Buck Shots”. The track has a sound that’s hard to pigeon-hole into just one genre. 90’s hip hop lyrics and a groove that sounds like it would be at home at an old Pretty Lights show make this bass track something special. This guy is also a technical badass behind the decks. He judges many Red Bull Thre3style competitions and took home the U.S. Championship title for himself in 2011.

Chill | Melbourne Duo GodWolf Rework “Love Is A Battlefield” Into A Chill Masterpiece

With a name like Godwolf, it’s no wonder they caught my attention. This tune is an all-around clever idea. Who could of imagined an 80’s song like this being turned into a futuristic, easy-to-chill-to tune. From start to finish, “Love IS A Battlefield” sounds on-point and well mastered.

However the idea/creative process came about, I’m glad it did, kudos to Godwolf. Can’t wait to hear what they have up next.
