Cozway – Bamboo

In Bass, Beats, Dangerous, Dark, Electronic, Experimental, Instrumental by J Freshwater1 Comment

Vancouver based producer Cozway loves experimenting and coming up with exciting sounds unlike anything else found in the electronic music world. Most notable is the absurd drop in his remix of Quix and Nevve’s “Riot Call”… Take a listen and tell me it’s not insane. His new song “Bamboo” continues this trend with a jittery lead and thumping drums that combine to create an uneasy, eerie vibe. Once again Cozway delivers the strangeness with full force, and I honestly can’t get enough of it. Read More

A-Dept – Pain

In Beats, Chill, Deep, Electronic, Instrumental, Zone Out by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

Sampling Skrillex’s “First Of The Year (Equinox)”, Denver based producer A-Dept delivers a slow-burning, trap infused banger in his new song “PAIN”. The reverb drenched electro elements and fierce percussion stand strong on their own, but the way this budding producer implemented the Skrillex sample takes the song to the next level. If you like what you hear, you can check out more of A-Dept’s work on SoundCloud. Read More

Momo Safi & No7ice – Purple Sky

In Beats, Chill, Guitar, Instrumental by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

“Purple Sky” is a wildly chilled out instrumental that features steamy guitar work and tight, organic percussion. The song and title fit together perfectly, evoking a mental image of warm summer nights and gorgeous sunsets. This is the first time I’d heard of producers Momo Safi and No7ice, but after hearing this collaboration I’m really hoping they decide to team up again in the near future. Read More

SAFIA MAFIA – Beam Me Up

In Bass, Dark, Electronic, Trap by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

When I stumbled across vocalist Safia Mafia‘s “Beam Me Up” a few days ago it immediately caught my attention. The eerie trap production is simple and effective, and a stunning contrast is created when paired with Safia’s pristine vocals. It appears she doesn’t have a ton of followers yet, but with more songs like “Beam Me Up”, that’s certain to change in the future. Visit her SoundCloud and stream “Beam Me Up” below. Read More

Hayden James – NUMB feat. GRAACE

In Chill, Electronic, Future Pop, R&B by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

There’s been so much good music coming out of Australia over the past few years that it can be hard to keep up—especially when it comes to electronic producers. This time it’s Sydney-based producer Hayden James that’s making major waves with his new single, “NUMB”. Released on the Future Classic label, “NUMB” features the sultry vocals of fellow Sydney-based artist GRAACE, whose voice glides effortlessly alongside Hayden’s mesmerizing electronic production. The entire song is incredible, but the highlight comes in the form of a supremely catchy chorus that immediately hooked me and hasn’t let go since. Read More

SOUDIERE – 1976

In Beats, Chill, Downtempo, Hip Hop, Zone Out by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

I’ve been really into the “chill beat with tough rap sample” thing lately, and nobody does it better than SOUDIERE. The French producer gets featured here regularly, and as long as he keeps pumping out quality tunes like this one, I don’t see that changing. His latest song, “1976,” features gorgeous production with sultry horns and percussion that thumps. And of course a SOUDIERE beat wouldn’t be complete without some catchy rap samples — this time coming from Yung Simmie’s “Disrespect”. Check out more from SOUDIERE on SoundCloud, and stream “1976” below. Read More

Tony – DEEPER ft. Ponsuda

In Beats, Chill, Collaboration, Downtempo, Dreamy, Hip Hop, Lo fi, Zone Out by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

Tony and Ponsuda, two producers and members of the EVILSIDECREW collective, recently teamed up for “Deeper” — a dreamy beat featuring faded rap vocals from Rich The Kid, Famous Dex & Jay Critch’s “You Flexing“. The vocals take a backseat in this one, acting as a rhythmic compliment to the otherworldly production, and the results are nothing short of hypnotizing. Read More
