Great Dane – Former Friends

In Beats, Electronic, Instrumental, Trap by Jeff

I can’t get enough of Great Dane‘s understated brand of trap music. In a genre that’s filled with loud and aggressive songs, his style stands out with a stripped down, pure sound. “Former Friends” is the first taste of his upcoming album Delta Fly, and it features the most hypnotic beat I’ve heard in a minute. It’s got a west …

London producer Catching Flies continues to impress with his new single “Ghosts”.

Groke – Drowning

In Beats, Electronic, Instrumental, Trap by Jeff

“Drowning” is a trippy instrumental from up and coming UK based producer Groke. He says it’s a song about “the turbulent descent into the deep blue darkness”, which nicely sums up how this one feels. An intro with frenetic strings leads into an otherworldly vocal style synth, then plummets into the abyss with a monstrous beat. Before it ends, the …

It’s an instrumental that starts with some pretty piano and unfolds into a hypnotizing jam featuring plucky synths, breathy vocal samples, and a sturdy beat. Listen to the rest of So …

Production duo X&G are back with a dangerous new house tune that wastes no time getting into a dark groove with churning bass and furious percussion.

Here’s an upbeat instrumental tune from Jerry Folk‘s brand new Sneeze EP. Like the rest of the EP, “Sneeze” is a buttery smooth and tightly produced song that’s all too easy to get lost in.
