The Biggest Problem Up & Coming Producers Face

with a good example from Shoe Scene Symphony's lastest remix

If there’s one thing that’s always been difficult for up and coming producers to find is a solid pair of vocal cords. We’ve got an over abundance of DJ’s & producers on SoundCloud & YouTube now, yet most are still relying on remixes, samples or just keeping it instrumental. Some eventually network their way into some talented singers or rappers, but it’s not happening fast or often enough, especially for this digital age. Which brings us to Shoe Scene Symphony’s latest track.

The 3S duo discussed on their SoundCloud page how difficult it was “to find a quality acapella” for their latest beat and didn’t seem too enthusiastic with their final selection — though that may just be my interpretation. It’s not that Aaliyah wasn’t a good choice, it’s just these instrumentals deserve their own original vocals, let alone a better match. It’s just coming up with the perfect vocals that’s been a problem for Shoe Scene Symphony and most other “under the radar” producers. […]

Disclosure · You & Me (Flume Remix)

Orchestral whompery

Flume takes my love out of Disclosure’s ‘You & Me’ and packs Eliza Doolittle’s vocals into a chopped up “orchestral crunkinator,” as they pretty much put it. I haven’t been on the Disclosure // Flume bandwagon before, but if they’re putting out music like this then I’m all in. There’s just so much deep house, uk garage love goin’ out there. Let me tell you, these two aren’t the best.

James Blake · Voyeur (Bear//Face Edit)

Rapturous, if I'm gonna get wordy about it

For those moments late at night when your trying to get as far away from life as possible, ‘Voyeur’ is for you. Bear//Face takes James Blake and deepens his voice into something that helps us all get away for awhile. Something all music is trying for, but few do better than just the point of “sounding good.”

Up Until Now · Hood Shining (The Best Dancers Mix)

with a bonus remix of The Best Dancer's 'Petrify' by Up Until Now

The Best Dancers & Up Until Now did a lil collab together and remixed one of each other’s tracks. Both remixes premiered on The Untz just a few weeks back and as much as I’m feeling Up Until Now’s remix, The Best Dancers’ blew me away.

The start of their ‘Hood Shining’ remix breathes a build up like no other, hear it to believe it. Just play the first 40 seconds a few times back. On good speakers. The rest of the song may not boast such intensity as the first build, but is still one funkyass ride of glitch & bass.

Melodic Dubstep

the chill side of bass music

Melodic dubstep may sound like an oxymoron at first, but it is for sure the best of its kind. It’s the kind of music that will take you out of your element, away from your own personal shit show – kinda like most music, but better. I would go as far to say it carries you to heights higher than our own beats to blaze to. So get out your best speakers, preferably headphones, and take a step away for a minute with some bass in mind.

Best of the Phoenix ‘Trying to Be Cool’ Remixes

Breakbot & Bloomfield do two different #'s to this soon to be classic

So I guess The Creator’s Project went up and got all the stems from Phoenix’s ‘Trying to Be Cool’ and bestowed it upon us all. I’ve went through a few of the big numbered remixes and found Breakbot’s disco delight, but also caught something a bit off the radar with Will Bloomfield’s entrancing electro.

I’ve had these lyrics stuck in my head all damn day and it really could’ve been from either of these two. What remix do you prefer over the other

Bronson · Diamonds

with Janet Jackson vocals all skewed up

It’s not about what you say, but how you say it — especially when it comes to music on this site. This diamonds are a girl’s best friend business has been goin on since Marilyn and even though the saying may be cliched enough, how it’s said here has not.

I didn’t originally know this, but Janet Jackson lends her vocals from her ‘Diamonds’ song. However, as you’ll see, Bronson has transformed her sweet style into some deep house, hypnotique soul.

Storm Queen · Look Right Through (MK Dub III)

"They don't talk to me, they look right through."

There are remixes that completely change up the style and there are ones that improve on what’s existing (and others that unimprove). While Mark Kinchen hasn’t completely changed up Storm Queen’s original, this ‘Look Right Through’ remix certainly improves on it. With a UK garaged-out sound, this tempo was certainly crafted for Storm Queen’s vocalist.

Juicy J · 30 Inches (Yung Gud Remix)

featuring the Gucci Mane and Project Pat

Over the past year I’ve been all about disco & soul’s remix revival, but I’m hoping now this is an intro into rap’s. Yung Gud steers Juicy J’s ’30 Inches’ onto one of the smoothest jams of the year. Reminds me of how 2Pac & the Outlawz use to hit.

Head over to Yours Truly for a proper introduction to Yung Gud.

iLLPHONiCS · Your Body

featuring Lamar Harris on horns

Lately more than ever I’ve had to convince friends that rap like Mac Miller is not so good — it’s easier said than explained though. It’s not that all of this white boy rap isn’t fame worthy, it’s just some of it plain sucks while others simply lack the soul most a good amount of hip-hop has had in its past. However, even a smaller crowd has managed to pull it all off, which brings us to illphonics.

When I first heard illphonics’ emcee, Fallout, on ‘Your Body,’ I thought it was going to be just that white boy, college rap I try to stay away from. But soon enough I figured out that this has much more all mixed up. illphonics’ jam may have that pop style of hip-hop set in, but it’s mixed with some southern soul. From the chorus to the brass behind it, this is a good mix of pop fun and soul feelings.
