Dubstep, Trap | AWAL Puts Bass Heavy Twist On The Trap Nation Hit “I Am The King” By James Meyers

Posted by on October 25, 2016

If you thought the feeling conveyed by James Meyers’ “I Am The King” was badass, you need to hear what LA’s own AWAL has done to it. To me, AWAL’s signature sound found within is his dark-pop flavor he adds to many of his releases: fast-paced drums, metal guitar work, and eery harmony layered, all falling at just the right time within the beat/measure to deliver an enhanced version of what the original has given us.

AWAL has handfuls of nice recognition that has come his way. He has played festivals globally, Shaq played out his track at Tomorrowland, and he’s been supported by Carnage, Chuckie, DJ BL3ND, Don Diablo, and more.

Trap | RYDEN ft. Chase Allen’s “Dear God” Will Make You Want To Fix America

Posted by on October 4, 2016

I’ve never felt a song fill me with a passion to go do something about the injustices in America, but RYDEN and Chase Allen’s “Dear God” speaks for a generations of brokenness, packaged together with a dark rap/trap feel that a has an almost gothic-like vibe sprinkled within. Most songs have a fiction story or theme embedded within, this tune speaks complete truth. Giving it more authenticity than most.

This is the first time RYDEN and Chase Allen have popped up on my radar, but I’m sure it won’t be the last. It seems this is a rebirth of sorts for RYDEN, stoked to see whats next. Listen to the track in full here.


Trap | Sean Turk Takes On Stalking Gia’s “Second Nature”

Posted by on October 2, 2016

Coming off his debut major label release, Sean Turk delivers a late night sensual bass record. This particular style has naturally become a signature for him and he is calling it, “Bedroom Bass.” Stalking Gia’s single “Second Nature” caught his attention and he knew it would make for the perfect remix. Their team signed off on it immediately and we are excited to share this one with FreshNewTracks.com.

New York producer and multi-instrumentalist Sean Turk has managed to impress Sebastian Ingrosso and his team, sign a record to Warner Music Group, air on the radio 4 times (one of those being the largest radio station in New Zealand), rack up several million plays online, and break the Hypem top 10 with all 5 releases. Really solid.

Trap | Let Element Take You Into New “Dimensions”

Posted by on October 2, 2016

“Dimensions” reminded me of something made by Wheathan, one of my favorite rising stars in the electronic field. But on that same note, Element clearly deserves some recognition as well. The gnarly dark trap vibes ooze through your speakers on this one through the piano stabs, booming bass and generally cinematic instrumentation crafted by the New York producer. Right on time for Halloween, Element drops a twisted banger to rage to in a couple of weeks (or this weekend), enjoy!

Bass, Bootleg, Trap | Kkami and BAD ONE Remix Missy Elliot

Posted by on September 30, 2016

Kkami calls on BAD ONE for a sick new Missy Elliot flip titled “Step To Me” and it is on point. It’s been out a week and has already garnered some solid support even though neither of these artists have come onto my radar before they really proved themselves on their new collab. Listen and download “Step To Me” by the two above now, you won’t regret it.

Dubstep, Trap | Astronomar Creates One Hell Of A Banger With “Run It”

Posted by on September 23, 2016

astronomar is a widely supported artist. Skrillex, Diplo, and so many more have been all over his music for years. Back in the day, his remix Wax Motif & Neoteric’s “We Go Deep” was just everywhere. More recently, Marlon Lumba aka astronomar has released on OWSLA, Ministry of Sound, and BNR Trax, as well as started his own label Main Course, which features it’s own bunch of unique songs, mostly hard stuff.

Today, astronomar has released an original entitled “Run It.” The tune has more of a mysterious side, but there’s no beating around the push when it comes to the power of this tune, this one is a banger. “Run It” features a classic 2016 dubstep/trap hybrid drop but pushed to the limit, plus so much more.

astronomar talent has longevity, he’s has carved out a chunk of the scene all for himself and his keeping it.
