After previously releasing their album, “Peace Is The Mission” in July, Major Lazer decides to release an extended version of the album. This is exciting news because on top of the original 9 high-quality tracks that were featured on the original release, there are 5 brand new tracks added. After listening to the new tracks added on, I was definitely left content. This album is full of outstanding products and impressive features. I would definitely recommend giving the whole album a listen.
Both Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole come out with brand new freestyles… Both called “Black Friday.” The cool part about it is that Kendrick freestyles over J. Coles track, “A Tale Of 2 Citiez,” and J. Cole freestyles of Kendrick’s track, “Alright.” Both of these freestyles are extremely impressive, which is expected out of least very talented rappers. I will be interested about who you guys think did a better job. Check them out.
With G-Eazy‘s album, “When It’s Dark Out,” due to release on December 4th, G releases another track that called, “Sad Boy.” This less intense track seems to be a little more meaningful than others that he puts out, as he talks about his success, money, life on the road, etc. Enjoy and make sure the pre-order the highly anticipated album, here. Also, check out G-Eazy speak about the making of this album through an interview with Hot New Hip Hop below.
It has been a while since a Tropical House track has been featured on TCS, and a remix done by Leex is the perfect track to bring the tropical back. With Ben E. King providing some very impressive vocals, Leex is able to take it to the next level with his unique and relaxing tropical sound. This is a great combination of vocals and production. Give it a listen and grab the free download.
Friday night we were lucky enough to see these two incredible artists at the Fonda Theater. It was night one of Zeds Dead’s Two Night Stand in LA, which was obviously a huge event, but adding Aryay as the opener put this show over the top.
This is definitely an artist to watch. We’ve posted about Mickey Karbal, or Aryay as he’s more commonly known, before and he’s been steadily gaining recognition over the past year. Some of his most recognizable tracks include his heavy trap hit “Lawnmower”, which was put out about a year ago and has received support from a bunch of other artists. His track with Flosstradamus, “God’s Whisper” has also gotten a lot of recognition. More recently he released his EP “Vicious”, which has the standout chill trap song, “R U Ok”. He played all of these on Friday but included surprising mainstream hits as well. For example, I was not expecting him to drop “All I Do Is Win” but the crowd loved it, especially when he seamlessly transitioned from that into “Lawnmower”. He also included hits from other Mad Decent and OWSLA artists like “Febreze”, “MFU”, and “Deep Down Low”. Another unexpected treat was when he dropped “Trap Queen” and then transitioned into “R U Ok.” He kept the crowd guessing and exceeded our expectations every time.
But what I was especially excited about was the last song of his set. He had tweeted and posted a teaser of his new collab with Dillon Francis the day of the show so I was hoping he would drop it, and he did not disappoint. He closed with their new track and it’s huge. It sounds like Dillon’s signature stuff but with Aryay’s heavier drops. Definitely excited for that to be officially released.
Aryay still has a couple stops with Zeds Dead on their tour and I highly recommend going if you have the chance. Zeds Dead are absolute legends and Aryay is definitely doing big things. You will be completely sore after this show but you will love every second of it.
When you see a team of Tiësto and Oliver Heldens, you should expect greatness. You can hear both of their sounds come through on this original track “Wombass”. Starting with a future hook that we’re familiar with from Heldens, it builds up to a bass-fueled drop sure to make you get up and want more. This track has been in both of their sets for a while, but I’m stoked to hear it finished now. Check it out.
Dillon Francis comes out with a brand new remix to Disclosure‘s original track with Sam Smith, “Omen.” This remix truly shows the talent that Dillon Francis has as a DJ. He uses a Future Bass sound that goes very well behind Sam Smith’s voice, and creates a very unique and dance-worthy drop that really makes this track stand out from the rest. Check it out.
T-Mass and LZRD team up to remix The Chainsmoker’s new hit, “New York City.” T-Mass and LZRD are the perfect combination of DJs when it comes to Future Bass or Trap productions. It is not their first time working together either. On top of the very impressive vocals that are provided from the original, these two DJs put together an awesome trap production that really makes this remix great.
