A real standout this week was “DUFFEL BAGS (DUFFEL RIDIM)” from LIL TEXAS, who hails from- you guessed it: Los Angeles. The track basically repeats the same vocal line over and over, but it’s the eclectic production that make this track so fun. Really interesting, deep synths and smooth transitions and hi hat work keep the vibes coming throughout.
Our favorite female Aussie producer Alison Wonderland has been reposting remixes of her album’s titular track, “Run,” and Jayceeoh’s has made the cut this week. It’s all about the drop on this one, which is one of the craziest I’ve heard in a while. Jayceeoh isn’t afraid of raw bass sounds or totally switching up the style in the second half of the song, incorporating and embellishing Alison’s original synths which undoubtedly delivers. Hype.
Really heavy bass and unpredictable progression are what make LOLO BX’s “for u” so enjoyable. First of all, the long, melodic intro and airy female vocals really builds the hype, but also contrasts beautifully with the brassy, bass-heavy drop. At first it doesn’t sound like anything new, but give it a few; raw synths and a new melody really build the track to a bombastic level that doesn’t at all resemble its humble beginnings. Let this one play.
(seriously underrepresented state of) Kentucky up-and-comer known as manitee released “kavachi feat sober rob” (gotta love these names) a few days ago which earned his SC a follow from me. A strong buildup and fun drop lead to a paced, trappy progression and unique synths. I love the work he does with the bass on this one which really make the song more exciting. Some really sweet flute melodies on the buildup add yet another layer to this simple yet dynamic track.
