My good friend Angus just put LA trio AndDrop on my radar and their latest remix of D!RTY AUD!O’s “Flame,” a mix of a trap and bass to get your Thirsty Thursday started early! Blending, elements of deep house, trap, and progressive house, to my ears at least, this track will fare well at your Summer parties, hard enough to hit, and light enough to keep the rager contained. I dig it, and I just want to point out that I also dig the bandana design on the cover, very G! This is a must listen and a must download!

It seems so right that Flume would remix Lorde. Something about her voice and his beats just makes sweet sweet love to my ears. The build up, the drop, the vocals, just everything about this song is fire. I don’t think I need to say more except keep hitting repeat.

Louisiana native and LSU student, Jesse Slayter is not just a normal college student. While his peers were heading down to Buku Music & Arts Festival to see acts like Nas, Zedd, Kaskade and Chance The Rapper, he was also heading down for a totally different reason, to perform. His discography already reads like that of a seasoned vet and the artists who have supported him (Skrillex, Diplo, Valentino Khan, UZ, etc) make most of his peers envious. He recently dropped an exquisitely crafted mix that is some mid-tempo magic, switching between trap, sensual rnb influenced beats, and some moombah madness. He packs in a whole bunch of unreleased tunes, including his upcoming collab with Wuki.

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!

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.

If you’re looking for some trap that is a little different, try “Marble Floors” by Ozzie. I’ve always been a big fan of Ozzie’s chill sound, and this track is yet another example of his creativity. Since I am just returning to writing for FNT from my spring break adventure in London, it’s only fitting that I show some support for this UK artist. This track is mellow with an underlying trap vibe. With altered vocals and lots of interesting sub melodies, this song will keep you intrigued listen after listen.

Instead of taking a selfie, you should be listening to this remix of it by Tim Gunter. Tim shows off his versatility by completely stripping it down and adding a hip hop/trap sound to it that hits hard with a great drop. Here’s what Tim had to say about the track:
“I started messing with this song because the DJ in me wanted to play it, but I could never find a good time to play the original. So, I slowed it down, added those signature 808s, and made it more of a #HOODSELFIE. After showing it to a few friends, they really liked it so I decided to let it out.”
Get this one ready for the weekend and holler at the song below.
