In Hip Hop, R&B, Trap, Upbeat by Jeff

MEMBA – O.D. (ft. TITUS)

In Bass, Dangerous, Electronic, Hip Hop by JeffLeave a Comment

MEMBA are back with another heater! “O.D.” is a nasty rap/electronic combo featuring TITUS‘s icy flow and heavy, extraterrestrial sounding production. The grinding bass immediately commands your full attention, but it’s the bizarre drop that takes things to another level. With their last few releases, MEMBA have become one of my favorite production duos doing it right now, and I …

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“.

Head to Soudiere’s Soundcloud for …

Felix Snow & Wintertime – Winter Workout Plan

In Electronic, Hip Hop, Party, Pop, Upbeat by JeffLeave a Comment

A surprise mixtape from rapper Wintertime and producer Felix Snow just dropped, and even though it’s not the type of song I usually post, the standout track, “Winter Workout Plan” definitely warrants a write-up. Snow’s production shimmers and thumps, sounding absurdly fresh as usual, while Wintertime delivers relaxed bars and a chorus that’s easily the catchiest thing I’ve heard this …
