The King Kendrick Lamar is one of music’s biggest icons. His new album and specifically the single “Humble” are larger than life. It takes a special producer to try and take on remixing such a project, but that’s just what the talented VenessaMichaels did. Her iconic sound has her regarded as one of the best producers doing their own thing. Her “Humble” remix exemplifies this sound, a mix of hip-hop/trap with just enough jersey club vibes to get the party going strong. Not only does she deliver a top quality remix, but she released it for free for her fans and DJs to enjoy, who surely will play this one out during the many upcoming festivals.

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.

On March 31st, Dabin will be releasing his highly anticipated album Two Hearts through Kannibalen Records. Today we have the fortune of sharing with you what is likely to be one of the dopest songs off the project. “Lilith” sees Dabin collaborating with label mate Apashe, whose recent LP Copter Boy was a huge success. Their bass-driven styles work well together and after adding the incredibly talented singer Madi to the mix, the result was something extraordinary. “Lilith” is unlike anything my ears have been exposed to and it alone has me excited for the album. However, this is the second single that’s been released so far, and with each step towards the album the anticipation grows tenfold. Pre-order Two Hearts below now because you won’t be disappointed.
