PnB Rock – Selfish (Shlohmo Remix)

In Bass, Deep, Electronic, R&B, Remix by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

I know I’m not the only one whose ears perk up whenever Shlohmo drops a new remix. It’s been a while, so this dark and restrained reworking of Philly R&B artist PnB Rock‘s hit single “Selfish” comes as a welcomed surprise. The original song’s production was really bright and pretty, so of course Shlohmo stripped it down and installed his …

X&G – Safe

In Bass, Beats, Dangerous, Electronic, Instrumental by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

With a string of recent releases, it seems like production duo X&G may have a proper album on the way and I couldn’t be more excited. All their new songs are insane (especially the Josh Pan assisted “GRAVITY“), but “SAFE” is my favorite of the bunch. It’s a hard hitting instrumental that delivers the abstract creativity I’ve come to expect …

The guy is a seriously talented producer, so it comes as no surprise that “First Breath” is every bit as amazing as the rest of his work.

In Bass, Beats, Dangerous, Instrumental, Trap by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

Ready? Probably not. SBOY, French producer and member of The Hash Clique, dropped this ice cold instrumental a few days ago and it’s gonna shake you. Shake you to the soul. The low end in this song is crazy. I don’t know much about the collective but they’ve got something good going on. Check SBOY’s SoundCloud and you’ll find a …

Eastghost – The Apologist

In Bass, Dangerous, Dark, Electronic, Experimental, Heavy, Instrumental by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

Experimental Portland producer Eastghost has been one of my favorite artists for a while now, mostly because everything he drops seems to push the very boundaries of electronic music. He recently stated that he’s been “juggling inspiration to write many different styles of electronic music lately, especially so in the way of making huge, club-ready bass tracks that people can …
