Grandtheft, a Canadian DJ signed to Mad Decent, puts together a great original track called, “Quit This City.” This track is about as mellow as Grandtheft gets when you compare it to his usual trap and bass style of production. Although it is a bit different, it really works out to be a great song to sit back and chill to. With awesome featured vocals by Lowell, you really can’t go wrong with this one. Check it out.
Boehm is a DJ that has picked up a big following through the Tropical and Future House remixes and originals that he has put out. Most of the tracks he has released have gotten really popular (many with over 1 million listens), which is why he has been featured multiple times in our Tropical Thursdays — a part of The College Sound’s Summer playlist series.
“We Come” is a great original track done by Boehm, which incorporates a classic House style to start off, and a Tropical House style to bring it to a finish. It also has great, catchy vocals that really bring the song full circle. Give it a listen.
If anyone is a big enough fan of this style of production, they would know that the collaboration between Wave Racer and Lido could not get any better. “World Record” is a bouncy, studdery combination of genres that is as unique as it gets. This kind of music usually gets a mixed bag of reactions by its listeners because it is so different, so check it out to see if you are a fan of what these DJs can bring to the table. This track is a lead up to Wave Racer’s upcoming 4-track EP, “Flash Drive,” which is expected to drop on October 16th via iTunes, so show him some love and throw him a pre-order.
This new track out of Wiz Khalifa is my favorite of his recent releases. Although the subject matter of the lyrics is pretty similar to every other song he makes, Wiz’s flow over the sick beat created by Cozmo and ID Labs makes me want to keep coming back and listening to this track. Check it out.
Moment Entertainment truly hooked it up for us last weekend and scored front row spots for Robin Schulz at the Fonda Theatre. He played an unreal chill house set, playing his classics like “Headlights” and “Prayer in C” and even brought out Klingande to play his hit “RIVA“. All in all it was a killer night, and he may or may not have pulled out a handle of Belve for the entire front row at the end of the night…
What made this night even sicker was the fact that he released his album “Sugar” the following day, so we got a first look at it. If you haven’t checked this album out yet I would highly recommend it. Perfect for your chill day, it even features vocals from Akon (where did he go five years ago..?) Check it out and be sure to find Robin Schulz next time he plays near you. Enjoy!
You know when you just happen to stumble across a killer track? Well I don’t know a whole lot about Morgan Page or Jayceeoh, but they’re both LA based and just released this killer remix to Page’s song “Running Wild“, so I’m sure that you’ll be seeing both of their names here again. If you’re looking for a feel-good house track filled with a synth-fueled buildup and high-energy drop (who isn’t?), then look no further. Check it out and be sure to follow them both on Soundcloud.
Canadian duo Adventure Club have been tearing up festivals around the world, and are back with their original single of the year, “Limitless“. Featuring vocals from singer Delaney Jane, this single captures their melodic dubstep style with a high-energy electro edge. Check it out.
Listen now, thank me later. Kaskade has been absolutely killing it lately, headlining festivals around the world and releasing countless top hits. Today I bring you “Automatic“, his 9th studio album and the most diverse one yet.
Something truly unique about this album is his newfound take on future house. I had seen him at Nocturnal Wonderland this past month where he played a set similar to that of Tchami or Oliver Heldens, and I was slightly confused as to why he was breaking from his feel-good vocal singles. Now it all makes sense as he delivers tracks like “Breaking Up” and “Promise” featuring basslines like I’ve never heard from Kaskade before. I for one am a huge fan of his new direction and this album is the best I’ve heard in a long time. Check it out.
I’ve always been a fan of The Knocks and am especially a fan now that they’ve teamed up with singer Matthew Koma. “I Wish (My Taylor Swift)” is full of upbeat instrumentals and sunny vibes. This track is off The Knocks upcoming album “55“, which is much overdue. Check it out.
Any track from Australia is guaranteed to kill it, and this one is no exception. Producer LDRU has taken a break from his Carmada side project to give us a track full of summer feels and good vibes. “Keeping Score” is the perfect mix of percussion taps, punchy synth, and melodic bass and LDRU really gives us a feel of his high-energy production techniques. Check it out.
