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.
At the time of this posting, MONAKR only has 300 followers on SoundCloud… Something tells me that’s about to change, especially with this superb new remix of RAC‘s “Sunglasses”. If you’re feeling this one, be sure to check out MONAKR’s debut song “Diamond” as well.
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 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 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.
Crooning vocals float along overtop a thick wave of static in this tranquil piece of electronic soul by Parisian artist 123Mrk. “Gotta Choose” is a part of Teen Idols: A Future Classic Compilation, which can be streamed here.
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.
“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.
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.
