Based in Garden Grove, you may have seen LO-DEF around on the internet via his official Dim Mak remix of “Devil’s Lettuce” by Bro Safari and ETC!ETC!. He’s now returned with his first single of the year, an original called “It’s On.” The release has all the makings that listeners got a taste of in the Dim Mak remix, but with a fresh core elements newly introduced.
The core of “It’s On” is certainly it’s hard, trap and bass feel. Pulsating, rhythmic percussion layer on top of dark, almost-spooky vibes found within this track that would undoubtably go off in the club. Gaining traction and getting noticed as an artist is, in part, about locking down credible achievements – Lo-Def is skipping ahead of his colleagues via strong productions, partnering with notable labels, and on-point branding.

Superdead is a new label that is only 2 releases deep, but are already showing promise in all the right areas. Underrated DJ/producer Ouza slayed the Super Dead 002 spot, featuring a clean bass tune that has huge juxtaposition.
The intro and bridge are chill and trippy, but fitting for a forward-thinking bass track, The drop blows the mind with it’s loud, overpowering, wall-of-sound feel. The second drop takes the direction a step further, mixing up the drum patterns to make the heavy sound of “Drag You Down” even heavier.
Superdead does their label model a bit differently, check out their website to see merch, exclusives, and more.

Bass music has a tendency to have a lot of saturation of similar sounds, the genre – somewhat – has barriers that makes a bass song a “bass song,” which can come off as restricting and create more saturation of similar sounds. Enter Whipped Cream and Hekler, who seem to not only put the elements that make a great bass song in an order that feels new, but also showcase a plethora of suprsing sounds within the experience of Mirrors EP.
The 5 track EP takes us on a ride that has softer, nostalgic feeling sounds, unbelievably heavy banger moments, and everything in-between, while keeping a trap and bass feel on each track across the board. This was more than an EP, this was a journey.

NY’s Razz is quickly become a household name here at FreshNewTracks.com. He caught our attention with “Overthinking” a few months ago. Didn’t read our interview with the rising producer and DJ? You need to get familiar. Today, he’s back with a brand new “Used To” original mix that we’ve had on repeat since Friday. It captures that nostalgic feel that’s been absent from many of the releases in the dance space at the moment. This is a quality tune that you need to add to your playlists on Spotify.

Well this is quite the banger. “Release” brings together emcee Cult Shotta and producer Spenda C for an upbeat jam that will surely have you grooving. The two newcomers are not to be slept on, and this song is proof of just that. I’ve had this song on repeat for atleast a week now and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon! Wouldn’t be surprised if i heard this spun out a ton at SXSW. Listen and enjoy above.
