GRiZ – For The Love (feat. Talib Kweli)

Screen Shot 2015-03-25 at 3.08.43 AM

This song is vibes at its finest.  GRiZ provides an awesome production that is smooth and has a little funk added to it.  On top of a great production, Talib Kweli provides a solid verse that matches the tone of the music perfectly.  This is definitely a great song to jam to with the windows down on a sunny and 75 kind of day.

Futuristic – The Greatest

Screen Shot 2015-03-25 at 3.00.24 AM

Once again Futuristic showcasing how talented of a rapper he is and how hard he can go.  You know how tons of rappers use the same typical lines over and over again in their songs?  Futuristic is better than that.  He is a prime example of lyrical creativity and perfect flow.  Definitely take the time to actually listen to the lines he has throughout the rap. You will not be disappointed.

Flaxo – Warmer Climates

Screen Shot 2015-03-25 at 2.28.00 AM

This is a very similar sound that you will here from artists like M83 or Porter Robinson.  Basically all that needs to be said about this production is to sit back and enjoy the most relaxing 5:15 that you’ve probably had in a while.  Here’s a free download.

Milo & Otis – Trap Arms

Milo & Otis absolutely killed it with this production.  It is a great example of what a quality production and a great trap sound are.  On top of that, it is pretty unique when comparing it to many other DJs that do trap.  Give it a listen and grab the free download.

C-Trox – So High ft. Marvin Divine

A very solid song coming from two Maryland rappers, C-Trox and Marvin Divine.  C-Trox has a similar style as rappers like Hoodie Allen, Huey Mack, and Mike Stud, and it works well to create a very enjoyable upbeat rap.  One of the best parts about this song is their sample of the Branchez remix to What So Not’s song, “High You Are,” which I am a huge fan of.  You can check that out here.  If you are liking what you are hearing out of these two, make sure to grab the free download and also go check out C-Trox’s album, “Perspective” on iTunes.

O.T. Genasis – Coco (Flosstradamus Remix)

Flosstradamus-28-of-451

Legendary trap duo Flosstradamus have just started their Australian tour, and they give us non-Aussies a special treat as well. I’ve heard countless remixes to O.T. Genasis’ anthem “Coco” but never one with a trap edge like this. This track is exactly what you would expect from the high-energy duo, and I’m expecting to hear other remixes similar.

This is not all we’ll see from HDYNATION, as they prep their EP “Soundclash” that will feature GTA, Run The Jewels, and Ricky Remedy. This is expected to release on 4/20 (how fitting). For now, check out this gem.

AutoErotique & Max Styler – Badman (Torro Torro Remix)

Torro Torro are killing it recently, having just released their co-written original with Skrillex “Make You Move”. Now they’ve taken on AUtoErotique and Max Styler’s “Badman” and given it a future bass remix complemented by a funky melody. They’re sure to continue rising to fame with infectious drops like this. Check it out.

Major Lazer & DJ Snake – Lean On (Ft. MØ) (Official Music Video)

Diplo-Major-Lazer-DJ-Snake-MO-Lean-On-Video

I’ve always been an avid fan of Major Lazer, and “Lean On” absolutely killed it. I was stoked to see the effort that they put into this music video. Diplo and Major Lazer have been posting all over social media the past few weeks of them being in India, and now I see why. I’m sure the dance moves took some time to master, along with making sure no one fell off the pimped out bus.

Major Lazer just released the album’s release date as June 1st which will also include features from DJ Snake, Ellie Goulding, Ariana Grande, and Travi$ Scott. Get excited for that and check out this music video now.

Dzeko-Torres

Toronto duo Dzeko & Torres came up under Tiesto’s wing and are proving their worth by continuing to dominate the progressive house world. Today they give us what may be their best track yet, “For You”, working with LA producer Maestro Harrell and featuring female vocals by Delora. This house anthem contains all the melodic progressions and drops you should expect from this rising duo. Check it out.
