[Hip-Hop/Breakdance Origins] [B-Boy Rap Beats] KRS-One – Steady Bounce


[Breakdance Hip-Hop:] Steady Bounce – KRS-One

Steady bouncin’ them jeeps on the New York streets
steady bouncin’ them jeeps on the New York streets
steady bounce-steady bounce-steady bounce….

For this Hip-Hop & Rap Origins post we’re featuring a classic, beat-heavy KRS-One track dedicated to b-boys and b-girls. From the album Strickly For Da Breakdancers & Emceez “Steady Bounce” is relatively simple in its structure and layers — and that works perfectly here. The result is a certifiably, windmill-ready mix of beats and repeating hooks harkening to the days of olde; sweats, fresh sneakers and bodies contorting over cardboard boxes on the sidewalks and them city streets.

[Chill / Soft House:] Ariana Grande – One Last Time (Raym Remix)


https://soundcloud.com/raymlife/ariana-grande-one-last-time-raym-remix-1

This incredibly chill remix of Ariana Grande’s smash-hit “One Last Time” is a welcome relief being just what it says to be: a chill soft-house tune and nothing more. Coming from EDM artist Raym, this chill house/ambient lounge track can be downloaded on his Soundcloud for free.

With every other song and remix (that gets popular) insisting and inciting us to TURN UP, or starting off mellow and chill before breaking into some trappy, wobbly-bass, abstract noise sounds it’s refreshing to here something that just remains consistent thrughout.

[Future Festival Chill:] Morgan Page – Fight For You (Beltek Remix), Mash-Ups & Remixes


[Dance/House:] Morgan Page – Fight For You (Beltek Remix)

I fight for you,
I didn’t wanna have to raise my voice…
I’m right for you,
You really leave me with no choice…

Morgan Page’s “Fight For You” is already epic enough in it’s original form, with the incredibly festival-ready mash-up take on Page’s own “Fight For You,” combined with Nima Nesta’s “Derby” in “Derby Fight“. or the deep ambient, Sultan & Shepard Remix or the dubstep-heavy Culture Code Remix. The Beltek Remix is another great, mixable remix emphasizing the heavy atmospheric basslines and melodies inherent in the popular song. Having been remixed six ways to Sunday there is a remix in probably at least one genre that any person alive would enjoy. Check some of them out below:

[EDM Origins: Throwback] [Moombahton Funk / Heavy Baile:] AggroKids – Killa


Throwback to this incredibly catchy moombahton track with mesmerizing amounts of bass and sampled Patois-sounding vocals repeating over and over. EDM artists, AggroKids (the combined effort of David Heartbreak & Rell the Soundbender) “Killa” has a sick, filthy bass-line that runs throughout creating a guaranteed club/floor-filler. Killa is certainly one of the better tracks of the Moombahton Forever, a latin-heavy electronic mixtape full of baile music and bass.

You can find more on AggroKids on these social media websites and download “Killa” from their Souncloud.

Hiroi Sekai (Worldwide) – J $tash, KOHH & Young Sachi (Andy Milonakis)

“貧乏なんて気にしない” Official Video [Translation: I don’t mind if I’m poor]

Japanese rapper KOHH has been making waves in the international hip-hop scene for quite some time now. After joining up with rapper J $tash’s Relax Gang for the track and comedian, former TV star and social media star Andy Milonakis. KOHH’s Riverside mixtape goes beyond the highly catchy, viral song as he dives into American street rap and trap music on tracks like “NBA” with his semi-frequent use of the “N” word, and a club-ready “definitely goes hard” remix of his “Hello Kitty” by Watapachi.

The second track has KOHH reminiscing on his upbringing in the streets of Japan. Kohh explains this is where he saw plenty of drug use, violence, killings and other aspects of growing up in rough neighborhoods that most Japanese people are never even exposed to. KOHH said in an article in Public Radio International he “lamented the fact hip-hop culture is seen as strange in Japan. But he hopes to change that…” His breakout-single “Hiroi Sekai” is making waves on Youtube, WorldStarHipHop, Vimeo and many more sites as are his mixtapes on illMixtapes and HotNewHipHop.
