I still love the dirty bass, as long as it charms me with a lil’ melody. ajapai’s “Drop The Bomb” drops one catchy melody and throws in some electro-madness tuh boot. Only thing missing, which I’m sure we can all agree on, is a few more seconds on the clock. It’s too damn short!
Madeaux presents another twisted tune with pretty piano playin on top and Ray J samples. I’ll let Madeaux explain why it’s called “Song #2″…
I wanted to give you a little background into this song because I feel like it’s fun when you can connect with the music you listen to on multiple levels. I wrote this song for my girlfriend a long time ago but I never finished it. Whenever we would talk and I’d tell her about new stuff I was working on she’d always ask “What about song #2?” When I had sent her the song awhile back I just titled the mp3 song #2 because I had no concrete titles thought up yet. What I want to ask of all you listening is, what would you call this song? What does it make you think of? Post what you think in the comments below. I’d love to know your ideas.
So you’re still with the girlfriend? I guess “Loved You” wouldn’t make her too happy.
OK, we’re a couple weeks late on this one, but I feel it necessary to say a couple words about Mord Fustang’s new EP. The release is exactly what one would expect from Mr. Fustang. His signature super fat saws and squares remain the driving force behind all of his tracks, which, coupled with complextro drops and a dash of vocal chops, has proven to be an award winning formula for Beatport’s Breakthrough Artist of the Year.
Frank continues to push out a story that’s on a whole ‘nother level than any other R&B today and is “frankly” only of a few I actually care to listen to. His sound in “White” is smoothly still and the beat carries the same. Like always, Ocean makes me wanna tear up every time I listen to him, in a good way.
Taking what’s soon to be one of the most classic tv show tunes, Cazzette turns the Dexter’s theme song into one horror-filled, nightmare of electro-ghoulishness. Unfortunately, we’re only privy to the preview, but we’ll update you with the final release when it’s… released.
More drumstep from Bassnectar with Lupe Fiasco fitting right in. A well done track, but I’m kinda moving on from this horror-filled, game theme classic style of dubstep. I wanna hear an MC on this.
Found this on Snoop Dogg’s SoundCloud and loved every minute of it. I had no idea who it was at the time, Snoop like too many other SoundClouders didn’t put up the info, but I finally dug it up. What a smooth jazzy, downtempo piece that’s perfect for a good morning sesh. Best way to start your day!
I don’t know how he managed Ellie’s “Under the Sheets” & FTP’s “[Funked] Up Kicks,” but when that chorus hits, shit gets magical. Not sure about the FTP whistles near the end, but ya never know.
Here’s a collection of all the best of lists for 2011. I gotta admit there’s a lot of remixes & mashes on here, but when you’re working with underground producers, their access to great vocals is limited to well-known acapellas (for the most part). But don’t let that get you down, music snobs, there’s still some find work all over here!
I’m not gonna bullshit around this, I’m not a big fan of Eva Simon’s voice. I can definitely see her doing well on backups, but she lacks the power & personality to be the main act. Thankfully, we get Zedd to bring in some powerful production with that signature breakbeat electro house. If anything, this is just another case of pop progressing past that all too repetitive, outdated EDM. [WAIT FOR IT] (the drop)
