The 19 year old New York producer that goes by the name of Jimmy Q remixed Marvin Gaye’ sensual “Let’s Get It On” by chopping it up, layering it with a trap beat, and including a subtle sample of Nas’ “Nas Is Like” all for your listening pleasure. If you’re into classics being revisited to be more in tune with the sound of the times, this one’s all you! I honestly couldn’t even tag a genre for this remix, it’s a mix between tech-house, trap and old school hip hop instrumentals.  Either way, this is a must listen and a must download!

I want to introduce you all to Moveltraxx, a Paris-based label that is by no means afraid to push the envelope on music: to test and stimulate its audience with a variety of styles and genres. Today, FNT was lucky enough to get the chance to premiere two tracks from their upcoming compilation “DMP6” that showcases the talent of their international caliber artists.

The first record is Ezekiel’s “Tecnica,” an original trap track with a quasi-Latin spin on it, and the second is “Aquafina” by DJ Tim Dolla, which showcases a fresh, unique sound design that just makes you want to get up and move – if you’re looking for something to slap on your way home from work and/or school today, you’ve found your winners.

DMP6 drops on January 28, so be on the lookout for a download, or pre-order on Juno.

The year was 2008. The month was September. It was a brisk Monday morning. The air was thin and the women were thick. A young Matt Halper emerges from his slumber to once again find sentience in his willy after almost a fortnight without. “Ya swooned me bro” he says as he looks across the room at the bottle of Vaseline he sometimes uses. After a quick shower and a thorough application of Old Spice body spray across his unimpressive body, he headed off to school. It was the first day of the school year and he had just moved from the great state of Wyoming to the northeastern region of Guatemala so he was a tad worried that there wouldn’t be any cute girls there, let alone white people. His slightly racist worries were soon cast aside however when on his way to school, he was kidnapped and held for ransom by a middle aged caucasian woman. She didn’t have a weapon or anything, she just simply overpowered him.

Days became weeks and the weeks peaked at three. On the third week of his capture there was a breakthrough. The woman who had intended to hold him for a ransom changed her mind when she realized he was not a very attractive guy so nobody would really care enough to pay a sizable fund for his release, so she just forgot about him. The unexpected demise of Matt Halper was seemingly inevitable at this point and after being trapped in a dark room for weeks, he had just about given up all hope. That is until he heard the undoing of the lock and the door abruptly open. “Here, take this and come with me” a mysterious hooded person said as they tossed him a small cylindrical thing. Matt and his saviour ran through the door only to be confronted by the woman, who was in fact Darth Vader. It was only then that he looked down and realized what it was he was holding. Matt drew his lightsaber and in tandem with the hooded man, began combat with the Sith Lord. They defeated him swiftly and got on the first flight back to America. They were sitting on the plane when Matt broke the silence, looked at his saviour and asked “who are you?”. “The name’s Eli, Eli Manning”.

And that’s the story of how Matt Halper and Eli Sones, known collectively as The Two Friends met. We had a chance to talk to them about mostly non-music related things and it got pretty heated (they insulted my sister but then said jk so I let it slide). Read on for the interview.

Progressive House | Tritonal & Paris Blohm ft. Sterling Fox – Colors

Tritonal & Paris Blohm ft. Sterling Fox - Colors
Protocol Recordings is generally known for a much more aggressive, uptempo sound in the spirit of its founder, Nicky Romero, but that does mean it can’t adjust its original mold to accommodate pure quality. Fellow American producers, Paris Blohm and Tritonal have a short, but strong relationship brewing, after Paris Blohm released an original and a remix on Enhanced Recordings, Tritonal’s parent label and one they are strongly tied to. “Colors” brings them away from their label, continuing along their trend of more melodic progressive house tunes that has angered old school fans, but brought has appealed to a whole new fanbase. The tune starts with tranced out, piano driven builds underneath Sterling Fox’s soaring vocals and crescendoes into an infectious synth-laden drop.

Electro-House | Eric Clapton – Cocaine (Gazzo Remix)

Staring outside my window and there’s a lot of snow. With this said NJ producer Gazzo remixed a blues classic “Cocaine” by Eric Clapton, and he fed the original a couple lines of benzoylmethylecgonine aka the white girl, making it more alive! This isn’t your hippy parent’s old school track, this one’s more potent with a drop that doesn’t fuck around. I can only imagine this one getting dropped at a festival, and I have a strong feeling it will, considering Gazzo has been receiving the support of Hardwell, Cash Cash and more with his latest remixes! This is a must listen and a must download!

Hip-Hop, Rap | Alex Jordahl – Go Away (Video)

Posted by on December 28, 2013

It’s been a while since we’ve seen the young Chicago emcee, Alex Jordahl up here on Fresh New Tracks. Jordahl has been off at school perfecting his sound, and craft while we’ve been anxiously awaiting some new music. “Go Away” is unlike almost all of what we’ve heard out of Jordahl thus far in his career. The somber, heavily-produced track is a ballad of a lost lover and the trippy visuals add in a whole other level of depth.

I highly recommend giving the video and song a try, and let Alex know what you think!
