The bass music heavyweight discusses his beginnings, bangers, and experimentation with breakbeats.
Located on the Foreshore of the quiet beach town of Newcastle, just two hours drive north of Sydney, the brand new This That festival made its successful debut on Halloween. Marketed as an event “where music meets culture,” the festival featured an army of food trucks, boutique market-style shops, and plenty of craft beer and […]
Lunice, of TNGHT fame, comes in hot with a new remix of G Jones & Bleep Bloop’s “Mind.” Lunice flips traditional edm production on its head with this track- The melody repeats itself over and over, in varying synths, instead letting the percussion and bass lead the progression of the track. It’s hard to explain, […]
Producing-wise, Baauer has been all but MIA this past year, but thankfully decided to release a new original, “GoGo!” just in time for Halloween. “GoGo!” features a variation of that trendy “future house” synth, but over a classic Baauer trap beat, it sounds fresh as ever. Game is a well established rapper whose heyday was […]
Troyboi has been gaining a lot of attention recently and reaffirms his position as one of the most innovative trap lords in the game right now with “London,” collabing with fellow Londoner Snooki Sound. Released through Mad Decent, “London” goes in with an eerie ambient soundscape and a slow-burning, low-key build. The drop hard and […]
Influential Aussie duo Hermitude released their take on Alison Wonderland’s “Games” last week, dropping a low-key buildup in a heavy trap beat. Hermitude is famous for inspiring the likes of Flume and many other Aussie artists, including Alison. You can always rely on them for innovative and unexpected turn up tunes, and be sure to […]
Guess what's finally out?
Our Picks for Moonrise Festival.
KRNE has become one of the most consistent Trap/Future Bass producers in the game these days, and is finally earning the attention he deserves. One strategy for constantly keeping his sound fresh? Frequent collaborations. This time KRNE teams up with QUIX, a heavy trap producer out of Auckland, New Zealand. The harpsichord intro gives way […]
Up-and-comers Jilbare, BUCKETS!, and Souheil recently connected and flipped Houston Rapper and Kanye West protege Travi$ Scott’s breakout single “Don’t Play” off of his acclaimed debut project, “Days Before Rodeo.” The real success of this remix is owed to the complete change of tone- The original “Don’t Play” is a much more hype; but these […]
Coming in hot after his killer remix/cover of “BBHMM,” Paris-based up-and-comer FAB just released his first original in a while, titled “Why You Leavin.” The drop is unexpected and trippy, with a solid beat to vibe to. I think FAB’s production would stand fine on its own, but Vann’s vocals definitely add pop appeal and […]
Trap star NGHTMRE just released his highly anticipated single, “Street” via Mad Decent, and you can expect to hear it in every trap set you attend this summer. The buildup made me a bit nervous that this track would just be pulled out of the festival-trap hole that I felt NGHTMRE had fallen into, but […]
Alexander Lewis is one my favorite trap artists out there, and this week we’re lucky because he released a new original- “Who Got It ft. S’natra.” S’natra lays down some nasty verses and Lewis’s beat is really excellent. Really great bass and hi hat work on this beat which is definitely the turnup track of […]
Masego & Medacin’s “Shut up and Groove” is the first track off their new Pink Polo EP. Medacin absolutely kills the beat, blending styles to keep things funky and fresh. Smooth sax, glitchy syths, a dope beat and what sounds like a birdcall go well with Masego’s vocals. Very stylish. Soulection labelee Esta. is in […]
Fall down the rabbit hole with the Sacred Cowboy… Friday, June 26th at 10pm – til dawn The Paper Box; 17 Meadow St, Brooklyn, New York 11206 The year is 2055. America has fallen, and the world is chaos. The earth is ruined. The rugged beauty of the American West has been strip mined, scorched, […]
GOLDWATER is an up and coming future trap artist you should definitely keep an eye on. His remix of Misogi & Andrea’s “LOVE U” brings the track to another level of creativity. It’s very chill, but also exciting because of its constantly evolving progression. Excellent mixing, beat manipulation, and measured synth work makes this track […]
CloZee is a female producer based out of Toulouse, France and just released one of the BEST tracks I’ve heard so far this summer. “Koto” has strong oriental vibes, featuring a three-stringed guitar (known as a shamisen in Japan or sanxian in China) over a fun trap beat. The emphasis is on the melody as […]
You really don’t hear many trap bangers these days- not quality ones, at least. Thank Based God for LA producer XVII. “Anax” is a track banger I can fully support. From the dark opening and well crafted build, complete with brass and strings, to the god damn lion’s roar at the climax, I was hooked […]
Future trap innovator and occasional Djemba collaborator London Future just dropped “It’s Okay Girl,” one of the most unique tracks I’ve heard in a while. Flipping the classic Usher track into a fun, hi-hats n’ deep synth vibe-sesh works brilliantly for a while, but Future isn’t satisfied with just one style. After a buildup halfway […]
