OZZIE – White Ferrari

In Chill, Downtempo, R&B, Remix, Trap, Zone Out by Jeff

This is the coolest thing I’ve heard in a minute. OZZIE has been one of my favorite producers for a long time now, and his new edit of Frank Ocean‘s “White Ferrari” reignites my love of his music. It’s a sedated reworking that layers and loops Frank’s vocals over a rolling trap beat, creating a melancholic vibe that’s a pleasure …

HU₵₵I – WORLD

In Dark, Instrumental, Trap, Zone Out by Jeff

OG trap artist HU₵₵I takes a deliberate approach when it comes to releasing new music, but the quality is always out of this world. His new song “WORLD” is a somber affair that features ethereal production, immaculate trap percussion, waves of warm synths, and monologued vocals threaded throughout. It’s insane how much emotional weight HU₵₵I can establish within a single …

Billie Eilish – ilomilo (Bad Acid Remix)

In Electronic, Remix, Trap, Zone Out by Jeff

LA producer Bad Acid puts a sinister spin on “ilomilo”, transforming it into a warped reflection of itself. Billie Eilish‘s delicate vocals are left mostly intact, but waves of shadowy bass, minimalistic percussion, and eerie, off-kilter synths replace the bouncy production of the original. Bad Acid’s style sounds so incredibly natural alongside Billie’s vocals that it feels like this remix …

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 …

Hapa – Nine (ft. Great Dane)

In Beats, Dark, Trap by Jeff

The debut album from LA based producer Hapa is a cohesive project loaded with dark and eerie trap production from start to finish. The highlight for me is “Nine” which features blog favorite, Great Dane. It revolves around a sample of children reciting a simple playground rhyme, with distorted bass synths and minimalistic percussion creating a menacing vibe. The song …

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 …
