Great Dane – DVN3

In Electronic, Instrumental, Trap by J Freshwater1 Comment

Song: DVN3
Artist: Great Dane

One of the biggest names in trap just dropped the first single from his upcoming self titled album, ‘Great Dane‘. “DVN3″ carries an ominous tone and has several slick change ups that keep things fresh throughout the entire track, which trap music often struggles to do. It’s an exciting peak at what’s right around the corner.

Look for the ‘Great Dane’ LP via Alpha Pup Records on 3/10/15.

Song: Don’t Mean A Thing
Artist: Lapalux

In preparation for his new album ‘Lustmore’, Lapalux has released the absolutely mesmerizing “Don’t Mean A Thing”. It’s a unique collage of mellow instrumentation, initially accented with sharp vocal samples, and later launched into orbit with ferocious lines of buzzing synths. Mark your calendars— ‘Lustmore’ is set to release on April 7th, 2015 via BRAINFEEDER.

Ta-Ku x Jaden Smith – Beast Mode

In Chill, Electronic, Hip Hop by Geran L1 Comment

Song: Beast Mode
Artist: Ta-Ku & Jaden Smith

Ta-ku and Jaden Smith are not two names I would expect to see together, but both their names are indeed on the project “Beast Mode”. I have not been a fan of Jaden Smith’s work up until this point, but the verses he spits on this 8 minute track (or continuous multi-track?) are really solid. Ta-ku’s silky smooth production also pairs surpisingly well with young Smith’s surprising flow. It’s an extremely enjoyable collaboration and I look forward to seeing if Jaden can keep up this kind of quality. Both artists have been on their grind lately; be sure to check out Jaden’s new EP “This Is The Album” and Ta-ku’s remix of George Maple’s “Talk Talk.”

Marz Leon – W H I T E L I O N Z

In Chill, Indie, Soul by Geran LLeave a Comment

Song: W H I T E L I O N Z
Artist: Marz Leon

Marz Leon not only has an amazing soulful voice, but a great ear for beats that pair well with it. There is no better example than the track “W H I T E L I O N Z.” It features a menacing beat co-produced by Marz Leon and go to producer High Land. The beat, with thumping bass that creeps along dark production, creates an ominous soundscape perfect for Marz Leon’s sultry voice. Be sure to check out Marz Leon’s other work and download the track for free at her SoundCloud.

Cavalier – I’m So Bossy

In Dark, Electronic, Instrumental, Remix by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

Song: I’m So Bossy
Artist: Cavalier

This hypnotic instrumental remix of Pusha T‘s “Numbers On The Boards” pulls the most recognizable elements from the original beat (produced by Don Cannon, Kanye West and 88-Keys) and slows them down to a ghostly creep. It’s every bit as unsettling as the original, but the new trance inducing pace dives even deeper into evil genius territory.

Djemba Djemba – Samurai (ft. King Henry)

In Chill, Electronic, Instrumental by Geran L1 Comment

Song: Samurai (ft. King Henry)
Artist: Djemba Djemba

“Samurai” was one of 17 tracks found in Djemba Djemba’s SoundCloud set “If You’re Listening To This It’s Leftover Beats.” But don’t make the mistake of seeing “leftover” and assuming sub par content. On the leftover spectrum, this track (and really all 17 of the beats) are Thanksgiving leftovers. The King Henry assisted track contrasts plucked strings and a flute riff with some thumping drums and ethereal synths. The result is a killer “leftover beat” that you’ll be more than glad to throw in the microwave and enjoy again.

Mr. Carmack- Free Baby (Lege Kale Remix)

In Bass, Chill, Instrumental, Remix, Trap by J Freshwater1 Comment

Song: Free Baby (Lege Kale Remix)
Artist: Mr. Carmack

I can assure you that this guy Lege Kale is going to blow up. His Drake remix was one of the best I’ve ever heard, and he just recently released this gem; a remix of Mr. Carmack‘s “Free Baby”. It slaps a fresh coat of paint on the original, transforming it from a laid back beat into a crystal clear trap banger.
