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.

Just after getting his “Throw Some D’s” remix spun by the legends themselves GTA down at Ultra in Miami, Miles Medina is back with a brand new hit: a remix of Young Thug’s “Stoner.”
The original already went hard, but after you listen to the twist Miles put on it, you’re going to lose your mind – especially if you hear it live. This thing is dirty, and I mean that in the best possible way. Remember his “My Neck My Back” remix? This track bumps just as loud, so make sure to grab your free copy and show Miles Medina some love by giving him a like or a follow.

I get it, a lot of people hate mashups. They’re effortless tracks made by elementary “DJ’s”. Sure, some are garbage, but for me, when I hear a mashup that works, I can’t get enough of it. It could be the simplest combination, but sometimes the “art” of mashup’s are all about finding the right fit. The Hood Internet continually impresses with their work and their newest masterpiece, “Higher Greens” is the perfect fusion of rap and trap. So, if you’re a mashup hater, feel free to keep hating, but this track KNOCKS.
