New Knife Party Track “Begin Again”

knife party begin

Did someone say new Knife Party? Every time a song gets leaked from their upcoming album “Abandon Ship”, I know we all get really excited. However, “Begin Again” has been officially premiered by the duo in full through their Soundcloud page, much to our joy. It sees Rob Swire contributing vocals once again, but here they ditch the heavy complextro for a more funky progressive house cut. It’s a side of Knife Party I’d never though to see, but boy does it sound good. October 27th can not come any quicker.

Kuso Kurae / Ray Volpe – Destiny EP [Dirty Duck Audio]: Must Hear Bass EP

kuso kurae

It’s Monday and you may find your heads already hurting from school / work. Just to confuse you even more, we present an EP from 2 producers that’s actually from 1 person. Kuso Kurae, aka the deep house alias of Ray Volpe, is slowly being introduced to the world with his debut single “Destiny”. Ray also decided to use his main moniker to rework the mellow house vibe into somewhat of a trap deep roller. Just like the album art, both records embody an empty, futuristic atmosphere. Winter is right away around the corner, so it’s time for those feels of nostalgia to dominate your playlists. Grab the release via Dirty Duck Audio.

ODESZA ft. Zyra – Say My Name (StéLouse Remix): Must Hear Chill Trap

say my name

A week ago ODESZA released their incredible “In Return” LP, and it’s that classic case where only the most technically advanced producers could make a unofficial remix good enough as to not ruin the atmosphere created by he original. Denver artist SteLouse has really been doing something for the future bass genre, with his dope takes of Viceroy, TLC and Disclosure all part of his diverse discography. “Say My Name” is a vocal deep house cut featuring Zyra, but is given more of a driving force with SteLouse’s uplifting version. Vocal chops are layered over vibrant melodies which gives the track a whole new perspective, one that I could definitely rock to in a club environment, Unfortunately there’s no free download, but keeps your eyes out for when it pops up.

Listen to Hudson Mohawke’s “Diplo & Friends” Guest Mix

hudmo

It’s hip-hop month on Diplo’s legendary BBC Radio 1 programme, in which he features slick guest mixes from his extensive friend list. Who better to call up than former TNGHT member Hudson Mohawke? The Scottish producer had a massive 2013 with his previous Lunice-collaborative project, but also saw mainstream success, being enlisted to produce for Kanye West’s “Yeezus” and Drake’s “Nothing Was The Same”. HudMo is a beast at his game, and this mix completely reflects that. With cuts from World’s Fair, ILoveMakonnen, Action Bronson, Kanye and more, this is one for the history books.

Hudson Mohawke – Chimes (Maxx Baer Re-Think) [Free Download]

maxx baer

Remixing Hudson Mohawke is a very bold move. I mean, the guy produced for Kanye’s and Drake’s grammy-nominated albums, not to mention his explosive individual and collaborative productions. Since the demise of TNGHT, the focus has been on his solo career, with his latest single “Chimes” being the talk of the town. Oh yeah it was also featured on the new Apple commercial, no biggie. So you can see why I was skeptical to listening to any remixes of it.

However, I was thoroughly impressed by the take from Bristol native Maxx Baer. He’s done so well, that it’s outshone the original. Maxx adds sparking future bass synths that give the track a more laid back feel compared to it’s brash horns and raw 808 kicks. The sound design is on point and it’s like a whole new track has been created. What’s even greater is that it’s a free download, so what are you waiting for!

ALGO Gives Away 5 Tracks For Free In “7K EP”

algo 7k ep

It’s the usual story. An artist hits a certain social media milestone and in return gifts us with some free music. Usually it’s a pack of bootlegs or a collection of B-sides that would’ve never made the cut, but ALGO really goes all out for his “7K EP”. After hitting that number on Facebook, he’s put 5 of his tracks up for no cost whatsoever. Whilst I still think the heavy “TWRKDROID” and the dark hybrid sounds of “Thrust” could have easily been picked up by a record label, I’m glad I can finally add them to my collection. Grab the full EP via ALGO’s Facebook page.

xaebor

SevnthWonder – The Language [Free Download]: Chill Trap Drake Remix

sevnthwonder

There were a great deal of big hip-hop albums last year, including Yeezus, Magna Carta Holy Grail and Nothing Was The Same. All received heavy reworkings from every corner of the EDM spectrum. Drake’s “The Language” never seemed to get the proper treatment, but has been worth the wait thanks to this new remix from SevnthWonder. One of the more prominent producer in the chill trap realm, his modern takes on R&B classics has gained him hundreds and thousands of plays on Soundcloud. Albeit, most of the tracks off NWTS were quite sorrowful and emotional, but thanks to this injection of upbeatness it seems that Drake is feeling happy for once.

Drake’s sound has been a huge inspiration to my music. Noah “40″ Shebib and Boi1da have helped set the foundation for so many bedroom producers in the “chill” genre, whether they know it or not. This is my tribute to Drake and his team of extremely talented producers who have really changed the “sound of hip-hop”.

Still working on my EP, and I have some really exciting remixes and collabs that are set to drop after this, so please stay tuned! There’s going to be a lot more awesome content coming out this fall.
