ZHU x Tame Impala – My Life

In Chill, Dance, Electronic, House, Zone Out by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

In this completely unexpected collaboration, Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker lends his vocals to ZHU‘s latest tune, and the results are top notch. ZHU’s music is always catchy and this one’s no different, but this super bouncy deep house sound is somewhat of a departure from the usual. Fortunately, it works amazingly well, and hearing both of these guys’ voices …

In Beats, Chill, Downtempo, Instrumental, Lo fi, Zone Out by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

According to Google, SwuM.‘s new Japanese titled tune translates to “Smoke,” which is an apt name for a song that’s so silky and smooth. The mysterious producer is known putting lo-fi spins on popular rap songs (much like his recent rendition of 6ix9ine’s song “Gummo”), but this one is a pure SwuM. instrumental.

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 …

SOUDIERE – 1976

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 …

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.
