Bass | Markus Cole Gives “Runnin’ (Lose It All)” A Fresh Pop Remix Feeling

Posted by on April 12, 2016

This one hits your right in the feels.

Markus Cole has been around for a bit, landing on numerous blogs and locking down spots on notable mainstage DJ’s podcasts/radioshows. But it’s “Naughty Boy – Runnin’ (Lose It All) Ft. Beyoncé, Arrow Benjamin (Markus Cole Remix)” and another track track he released a month ago that are attention grabbers. The former will be the focus here.

From the very start “Runnin’ (Lose It All) (Markus Cole Remix)” brings the listener to a relaxed state via the familiar voice and lyrics. The added production from Markus is noticed and enhances/refreshes the experience overall. It’s not until the drop that you get hit with this “woah” moment behind your computer screen. The rattling, roaring bassline is fresh, but fitting compared to the entirety of the remix – which is catchy in itself.

This is one not to be missed.

Trap | Pyramid Scheme feat. Trinidad James – Cut It Up

Posted by on February 21, 2015

How she’s a virgin on the week days as opposed to the weekends escapes me, but I digress. Former strippers and pizza enthusiasts Pyramid Scheme (Adam LaRossa and Sterling Pike) drop their incredibly infectious trap-hybrid “Cut It Up” single. How this isn’t on a major label is beyond me. A smart major would sign this track immediately, as I predict “Cut It Up” could become a genre-bending radio friendly crossover that even the whitest of girls could get down to on a Saturday night.

Although legendary overlord and former blogger “GMONEY” is long retired, he’s still a track hound, scouring the internet for the best sounds. He routinely surprises me, finding obscure tunes that I could have never found myself. Earlier today, he got me familiar with CASSIMM’s “Shake Sofa & Inner Rebels – All Night Long” remix, which is one of a kind. Released a few months ago, this is a remix that didn’t receive the love it should have gotten. Give this remix a second chance. It’s catchy.

Hip-Hop | Asher Roth – Pop Radio x Pearly Gates

Posted by on June 24, 2013


Asher Roth is back to offer up some new knowledge, first for his original single “Pop Radio”, followed by a freestyle over Mobb Deep’s legendary “Pearly Gates”. The former of the two is classic Asher, packed with assonance and witty rhymes that lighten up the more serious message within the song.

In “Pearly Gates”, Roth discusses his struggles within the industry thus far.

“Rick Ross can be a cop, Drake ‘started from the bottom’? No offense, I don’t wanna start a problem but come on, all I ever did was tell you I was a champ at beer pong.”

There is no doubt that Asher has to battle everyday with the image that his hit college music shows him in, however, as soon as people start opening their ears to how much substance is really behind each line, it will only be a matter of time before Ash takes off.

Be sure to download Asher’s new mixtape The Greenhouse Effect Vol. 2, out tomorrow!

Progressive House | Mat Zo & Porter Robinson – Easy

Posted by on December 17, 2012

Unless you’ve been seriously out of the loop for the past few weeks, you’ll know that former tour mates Mat Zo and Porter Robinson recently joined forces on a monster collaboration. The fruit of their labor is now available on Beatport, and I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t one of my favorite tracks in recent memory. “Easy” basically epitomizes what you want to be blasting as you leave work on a Friday afternoon — it’s a feel good, sing-a-long anthem that’s already seen major live set support from heavyweights like Armin van Buuren and Tiesto. Get this track now because it’s poised to take over in 2013.

Dayyyum, there’s really no two ways about this people, this track is infectious. All I Wanna Do Is Party is the whole package… from the addictive melodic beat, to the laid back lyrics, to the chorus that quickly harkens back summer in the dead of winter. Spadez, enlisted the help of former band member SeanZy to hop on the track, and put together some dope “feel good” visuals to go along with it. If you are digging the track, make sure to grab the whole mixtape below as well.
