Philly duo Louis Futon may be still be arguably “new” to the scene, but their discography and social media following proves these boys mean business. They’ve got heaps of original releases in addition to a handful of remixes, each one varying a little bit in genre from the next. This delightful remix of Logic and Jhene Aiko’s “Break It Down” is, as the say, perfect for those summertime vibes. I hate to spoil this track by pointing out its similarities to Kaytranada’s style, so just think of it as Louis Futon’s own spin on that groovy feel.
On that note, you may have heard Louis Futon on Ta-Ku’s latest “Drive Slow, Homie, Part III,” in which case you should make note that track will be featured on their upcoming EP, still TBA. In the mean time, snatch this free download and toss it on your poolside playlist stat.

As $aturn gains more and more attention I am becoming more and more impressed with the quality of work put out. This track has been floatin’ around the net for about a week as an exclusive release but now it’s officially released to Trap City’s record label Slimkat Records. It’s just too cool to pass up including it on FNT. “Clift Hanger” is fun and bouncy. The unique sounds and synth work are divine. Trap beats carry the floaty melody through ups and downs that will charm your ears. Luckily this track is available for free download if you’re diggin’ it!

Fresh in my inbox, this remix of Q-Tip’s “Work It Out” is going to make some noise and turn some heads, I already know. Unknown to most, but you’ve heard his productions, producing for the likes of Lana Del Rey & Banks, Stint is a Los Angeles/Vancouver producer highly sought after by the industry for his progressive sound and yet has managed to stay under the radar until now! This record is infectious, and does justice to the hip hop legend that is Q-Tip by revisiting this classic. This is a must listen hands down, and I guess we’ll wait for that download button!

Before deeming any new music as something special it needs to pass my three-stage exam. Make no mistake, this is not an easy feat as the song or artist must sound equally glorious through headphones, car speakers, and desktop speakers. This morning sealed the deal, and Daytrip has officially passed the test.
Their first official release is entitled “Flight 43″, and it seems quite fitting. The song builds for take-off, and cruises through an exciting ride –is there such thing as pleasant turbulence?– before finally slowing down to land, awaiting their next journey. Although it is the first song public on SoundCloud, it’s apparent the Daytrip duo is not new to making music. And, any look through their travel-log/tumblr will show you that this product has been a long time coming.
Daytrip’s sound is one that is difficult to pinpoint. While some may knock “Flight 43 (NYC)” for trying to do too much, I hear a song that is incredibly cohesive, despite its numerous experimental features. Listeners can hear a Jacuzzi/Mr. Carmack future-trap influence alongside a shredded guitar sample, all packaged in to an “ambitious powerhouse production” (Confusion, P&P).
In a day and age where music is becoming a “less is more” game, Daytrip is an exciting, unexpected and refreshing twist.

20 year old Nico Schinco hit me up out of the blue yesterday and asked me to check out his latest track “Sura,” which is readily available on Beatport for purchase, and to which he will be giving away all the proceeds recouped to the World Wildlife Fund. I happily obliged to his request a day after, and man this tune has vibes and melody for days! Trancy, progressive, tribal, these are just a few words to describe this sound, but you really have to hear it for yourself to grasp the aura of “Sura.” This is a must listen and support by copping this track NOW!
