A few weeks back, the French prodigy producer from Paris Stwo, who recently signed to Drake’s OVO, released stems to an intro he had been working on for an upcoming project of his, for producers to have a crack at it. LA producer A Sol Mechanic’s remix was brought to my attention, and I’m in lust. If you need a moment in time to reflect, let this remix spin, better yet, let A Sol’s whole SoundCloud spin, you will feel refreshed! This is a must listen!

House | Funkerman – The Masterplan

Funkerman is the man when it comes to house music, and when he’s not scouting for the hottest dance talents or releasing collaborations with Hardwell, he’s producing the hottest house records in the world, and it’s refreshing as hell, so producers/DJs pay attention, “The Masterplan” shows you how it’s done. Featuring deep vocals from J.W. on that old school Chicago house, UK house feel, this is a return to the roots of dance music brought forward to 2015, and I’m fully supporting! This is a must listen and support this record on Beatport!

Tomorrowland’s sister festival, TomorrowWorld, made history in 2014 with a lineup consisting of the world’s top DJ/producers that took to the Chattahoochee hills for three days of madness.

Boasting a lineup of Wolfpack, Borgore, 3LAU, 3 Are Legend, and many more, the Dim Mak crew released the second part of their Dim Mak Invasion recap series to shine light on the insanity that the label’s artists delivered. Check out Part 2 of Dim Mak Invades TomorrowWorld 2014 above and watch part 1 here.

With the style and creativity of Jon Bellion and a voice somewhere between SoMo and The Weeknd, Dylan Reese is someone you need to get familiar with. This up and coming R&B artist brings a certain attitude, style and work ethic to the often times forgotten genre.

 

Recently, Dylan has taken a pause on his original music and has been crafting unique medleys of well known songs. Today, Dylan let go the second installment in which he takes pop superstars Maroon 5’s ‘She Will be Loved’ and ‘Sunday Morning’ as well as ‘Say You Will’ by Kanye West’s favorite person, Kanye West. Dylan’s ability to fuse the three songs into one medley and really make it his own is spot on; be sure to check out the initial medley ‘Often/3005‘.

Bass, Drum & Bass, Electro, Electronic, Trap | Daytrip x Vybz Kartel – Up To The Crime (Video)

Posted by on January 27, 2015

When you hear a song for the first time, it’s easy to jump to conclusions about the songs meaning, or perhaps what the artist was envisioning while he or she composed it.

In music videos, like Act Natural’s for “Up To The Crime”, it’s captivating to see an entirely new spin on a previous piece of work. The video takes a viewer on a tour of London’s illegal gun trade. There are no actors used and all of the real people from where the video was shot in West London add a scary reality to the already dark story.

As the video twists and turns from alley to club, the melodic, yet powerful builds structured by traveling production duo, Daytrip, keeps your ears just as your eyes.

Hip-Hop, Pop | TJ Hickey – Drinkin’ Bout You

As a fan of music, it takes quite a bit of convincing to give a previously dismissed artist a second listen down the road. Once upon a time TJ Hickey was caught up in frat rap, sounding like a plethora of others all trying to accomplish the same thing, but that is the case no more. The Fresh New Tracks newcomer delivers a new single ‘Drinkin Bout You’ accompanied by some stimulating visuals from M9. The single is the first off of his forthcoming project ‘Undeniable‘ which is set to drop later this Spring.

 

As of late TJ has really transformed his sound, using elements of not only pop and hip hop, but really adding some rock inspired production working with one of the best in the game currently, Louis Bell. As of late, TJ has teamed up with the likes of Cam Meekins and Huey Mack on his single ‘Stay The Night‘ and more recently linked with rapper Futrustic for ‘Hollywood‘.
