Posted by on May 28, 2013

diploThere are few people with a better pulse on what is going on in the music world than Diplo, so for him to assemble 102 tracks in one space to play all at once is special. It is better than anything we would come up with, so just hit play and enjoy all 6+ hours of music wherever you are. Not all of it is downloadable, but some of the tracks are free, so peruse the list, spanning from dubstep to hip hop and get to listening to all 6 hours and 24 minutes. After the jump is the full tracklist.


Events | South by Southwest 2013

Posted by on March 9, 2013

Next week, Fresh New Tracks will take on South By Southwest, the self-proclaimed “premier destination for all discovery” that sets the trends of music for the next year to come. SXSW is a film, music, and interactive festival that takes over the city of Austin for 10 outrageous straight days. The music festival is comprised of official and unofficial (usually free) shows, rooftop parties, party boats and buses and no to mention the most interesting collection of people you will ever see.

Allow us to give you a little taste of what went down last year…

Stayed tuned for Sev and Mimada’s Complete What-To-Do and How-To-Do-It guide after the break.


Rap, Trap | PropaneLv – Harlem Shake Remix

Posted by on February 22, 2013

The viral video craze that accompanies Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” has hit the stratosphere in the last week as thousands of YouTube users upload their own chaos filled videos to the trap beat.  To my surprise, not many opportunistic rappers have jumped on it. I guess it was a perfect fit for PropaneLv and the next installment in his cover series – and he had the LTRMN goons on deck to give his video for it the usual Harlem Shake treatment. Download is on his Facebook below.

Trap | DJ Snake – Bird Machine (feat. Alesia) / Together

Posted by on February 22, 2013

Bird machine

Two huge releases in this package from French producer DJ Snake. We already previewed “Bird Machine,” a cool as hell track with Alesia that’s seen playtime from Dillon Francis, Knife Party, Flosstradamus, and Baauer. The defining feature? You guessed it — bird whistles in lieu of more traditional synth leads. This track is quite honestly going to be everywhere in about five minutes so take my advice and jump on it now. Rounding out the package is “Together,” which flirts with hardstyle before delivering a big, bouncy trap drop. The two seemingly disparate styles work surprising well together and bring serious energy. “Bird Machine” and “Together” are both out now (for free!) on Mad Decent’s Jeffree’s imprint — snag the free DL below.

Hip-Hop, Trap | Baauer x Just Blaze – Higher

Posted by on January 18, 2013

Lord have mercy.  One of the best young innovators of Trap linking up with one of the legendary producers of Hip-Hop?  You don’t have to tell me twice.  This Jay-Z sampled “trap-hop” is the best of both worlds.  Press play and set to repeat.  Happy Friday.

Interviews | Music Talks Presents: Schoolboy Q – Sex, Drugs, and Hip-Hop

Music Talks is back with their newest interview, mining into the mind of West Coast rapper and TDE affiliate, Schoolboy Q.  Touching on everything from the birth of Q, to his favorite munchies, to his career goals. The Black Hippy is hopeful that his fans will stay as passionate about his music as he will for Mary Jane.  Judging by the peanut butter response from Q, it’s fair to say some of is die hard fans are hungry for more than just his music.  His response to “The person I look up to most is ____,” caught me off guard.  I expected the LA native to respond with a West Coast legend, but you can’t knock Diddy’s success as an artist and a businessman.

With Mac Miller, Avicii, and now Schoolboy Q in the books, prepare yourself for Baauer and Macklemore x Ryan Lewis coming in the next few weeks.
