Kuma's

Kuma's "Reason in Madness" keeps things in the bedroom

Let's turn down the beats per minute and indulge ourselves in a beautifully downtempo instrumental hip-hop track from kuma. 

The promising young L.A.-based producer uses minimal production to create a melodic and sexy jam that will make your toes curl. By interweaving piano melodies with hip-hop drum patterns, kuma is able to drive the track forward without risking monotony. The male and female vocal samples create depth in the track, while maintaining subtle beautiy with slow-changing synth lines, making this track worthy of pillow talk.

Caution, this track may make it difficult to leave the be

Skylab Lives Up to 'Raved' Hype

Skylab Lives Up to 'Raved' Hype

At the risk of sounding cliché, to say Skylab XX was “out of this world” would be an understatement of astronomical proportion. Held as Denver’s largest single-day EDM event, this past weekend's highly-anticipated 20th anniversary event had massive hype to live up to since the first intergalactic mission was launched in 1994 by DJ-duo, Brad and Shawn of Manufactured Superstars. So it was only fitting for the space-suit-wearing-cadets to close the sold out show with their heart-warming house anthem, “Stay” (Watch the Skylab XX trailer here).

Knife Party's newest leak dives into trap

Knife Party's newest leak dives into trap

The solid foundation for Knife Party’s cryptic debut album, Abandon Ship had already been established with the singles “Resistance” and “Begin Again." The album proves, however, to have a deep bench with “Boss Mode” which comes as the duo’s newest leak and is no exception to the pattern their fans have seen so far. Knife Party has finally trekked into trap territory--and with swagger no doubt. “Boss Mode” is personified with an eerie Knife Party build that almost conveys a dubstep vibe, but as the drop suggests, the “switch” is anything but predictable. Characterized by brawny Knife Party kick

Cazale - The 101

Cazale - The 101

 

Cazale, South East London’s DIY Electro Maestro, unveiled his debut single The 101 (Mode 33 Records) to the world today.

The 101 sees Cazale blending old school electro beats, addictive melodies and live funky bass/guitars to create a new dance music vision. Inspired by the House Music explosion of the 1980’s, this hypnotic single also tips its hat to early New Order, Kraftwerk, Francis Ford Coppola’s film The Conversation, and Jimi Jules.

Cazale’s obsession with vintage drum machines, guitars and basses can be heard and felt in this original sounding debut. “They are songs that de

Wild Culture - Day to Night

Wild Culture - Day to Night

In the mood for deep, dirty, big room bass lines? Look no further than duo Wild Culture’s latest release titled “Day to Night”. Off of Pleasurekraft’s Kraftek label, “Day to Night” is a darkly melodic track featuring heavily distorted vocal samples from 4 Strings hit “Take Me Away Into the Night”. This song is much more than a deep house spin on a decade old trance track, however. Backed by gritty bass lines, twinkling keyboards resemble the pattering of rain creating a an atmospheric effect of dark city streets. Followed by throbbing bass licks, striking high hats, and the occasional piano ch

Indiana - Heart On Fire (SNBRN Remix)

Indiana - Heart On Fire (SNBRN Remix)

Does Summertime’s departure have you down in the dumps? SNBRN’s remix of Indiana’s “Heart On Fire” might just be the cure you need. LA local SNBRN has been killing it all summer with feel good indie dance and deep house remixes, and he obviously doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon. Not much has come out from this LA producer other than remixes, but check out his remix of 50 Cent’s “21 Questions” if you need any more proof that SNBRN is one up-and-coming producer you need to start paying attention to.


This one is on repeat for me, and hey, it’s a free download so snatch it up while you can.

Etched -Talkin' About

Etched -Talkin' About

 

This one got my head bobbin’ almost immediately when that deep sub kicked in. Etched's past work has revolved more around trap, but he has more recently moved towards a future bass sound that should quickly gain him fans in that genre. Lots of memories of Flume and Kaytranada in this beat, such as the vocal manipulation and panned keys.


The 21 year old UK producer has been in the game for about a year now and has already gotten support from Skream and Benga, Future Bounce, and Victor Niglio. It’s obvious he’s still searching for his signature sound, but he’s doing a damn good job doing

Flume & Chet Faker - Drop the Game (Sweater Beats Remix)

Flume & Chet Faker - Drop the Game (Sweater Beats Remix)

Anyone who has been following the New York future bass boss Sweater Beats lately knows he’s been going in somewhat of a “Flumestep” direction, and his new remix of Flume himself show’s he’s not shying away from that.


Sweater Beats keeps Chet Faker’s original vocals on the track pretty intact, which is great considering what a unique and captivating vocalist Faker proves to be on this track (as well as his own work, see “1998” and/or “Talk is Cheap”).


It’s a great remix of a great track, but if you’re looking for something radically different from the original you won’t find it here.

Surfer Rock Shines Through on

Surfer Rock Shines Through on "Mistakes I've Made"


Dutch-native Eelke Kleijn’s latest release from Spinnin’ Records is a hedonistic anthem with colorful instrumentation that without a doubt draws its inspiration from the heavy guitar reverb sound characteristic of 60’s surf rock. While heavily produced, the effect of layering live instruments with simple beats drives the track forward allowing for self-indulgent vocals to take the wheel. With lyrics like “There’s no future, there’s no past/beating hearts are all we have,” who says summer has to end?

Warning: this track’s breezy Pacific Coast melody may leave you itching to finally take that im
