Two hot EDM bangers from the likes of CiD, Kaskade and marshmello are here.
[Dance & Deep House]
Sweet Memories – CiD & Kaskade
Your sweet, memories
the one we danced to, all night long…
CiD & Kaskade’s insta-classic “Sweet Memories” has a very badass extended version (like many of CiD’s songs). Powerful wobbling basslines and funky groovy vocal samples make for a very floor-heavy dance tune. The song is very powerful even with it’s minimalistic take on “vocal house” and is sure to be a favorite among house lovers (also check out the duo’s other hot collab “Us” from Kaskade’s Automatic)
Freal Luv (feat. Tinashe & Chanyeol of EXE) – Far East Movement x Marshmello
Hustle to win, we be livin’ in sin,
makin’ us two of a kind
새로운 길, babe we got temples to build,
ain’t no haters can step to our grind
Hip-hop and electronic group Far East Movement has teamed up with rising-star Trap producer, Marshmello, in the hard-hitting trap banger “Freal Luv.” Bringing R&B songstress Tinashe into the mix and Korean Pop singer Chanyeol, livens the song up even more while heightening it’s diverse sound. On the surface it may begin like your typical trap with female vocals but Tinashe manages to bring some very moving energy to the chorus. Far East Movement has largely been off the mainstream radar for some time, and though this is not the first time they’ve “teamed up” with an EDM producer (All You feat. Waka Flocka heavily sampled Kaskade’s “All You) this cut feels much more authentic. In “All You” the beat was simply sampled from it’s original recording, while this was produced just for the song.
The result is Marshmello‘s signature slamming and slapping snares, heavy bass rolls and triumphant bells keeping the mood light, but intense.
For those in the Atlanta area, marshmello will be performing at The Gold Room in Buckhead, Atlanta on November 23rd. Pre-sale tickets are already sold out.
Migos'”Bad & Boujee” enlists the help of Lil’ Uzi Vert who is also featured alongside Nicki Minaj in Meek Mill’s “Froze”
Bad & Boujee (feat. Lil’ Uzi Vert) – Migos
The Migos have done it again, and with the help of Lil’ Uzi Vert not a moment too soon. Just in time for the colder months comes a rather cold rap number in “Bad & Boujee.” With a smooth relaxed beat the song is perfect for chilling out or lowkey turning up. The single is making rounds across the country and the world.
Froze (feat. Lil’ Uzi Vert & Nicki Minaj) – Meek Mill
Look at my neck, ay, damn you know how froze that is?!
Look at my wrist, unh, yeah you know how froze that is?!
For something a little more high energy we’ve got Meek Mill’s “Froze” proving that Meek is not forever taking L’s. I, for one, thoroughly enjoy the street hustle grind sound mashed with Black rockstar rap vibes (see “Black Beatles”). With help from Lil’ Uzi Vert and Nicki Minaj, Meek cranks out a rap banger that is sure to have people dancing, hitting the quan, and making other dance videos to the songs outrageously addictive chorus.
“All There (feat. Bankroll Fresh) – Young Jeezy”
Dope boy 95 Air Maxs on
Came from up the road boy you know we tax homes
You want a whole thing? Hit me on the black phone
Hood nigga, Hot Cheetos what I snack on
After quite a long time Atlanta’s voice of the streets, Jeezy, is finally back with the release of Trap or Die 3. One of the first singles off the album “It’s All There,” which posthumously features fellow ATL rapper Bankroll Fresh is making rounds of local Georgia radio stations and beyond.
With a straight “trap” feel, hard beats accompanied by hood instrumental symphonies and some hard bars from Jeezy and Fresh, “It’s All There” has the makings of a Fall trap anthem. Check out more from Jeezy’s recently released Trap or Die 3 here.
OG – Troyboi
Similarly, TroyBoi is back on the scene, though he really hasn’t been anywhere with a new trap track called “OG.” This one is actually a lot more melodic than your usual trap fare, which is to be expected of TroyBoi. The song opens with a calming melody of bells before dropping wall-thumping bass hits and your usual snares. However, before it has a chance to become too stale or repetitive TroyBoi manages to keep the beat progression interesting. His returns to the calming “bell melody” increase the awe factor of “OG” and create a mix-match of relaxation, high energy and suspense.
You can download OG for free from TroyBoi’s Soundcloud.
Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles,” a power rock-rap anthem produced by Mike Will is climbing charts.
[ATL Hip-Hop & Rap]
“Black Beatles (feat. Gucci Mane) [Prod. by Mike Will]” – Rae Sremmurd
Like clockwork I blow it all, then get some mo’
Get you somebody that can do both
Black Beatles got the babes belly rollin’
She think she love me, I think she trollin’
Rae Sremmurd and Gucci Mane are tearing up the charts around the country with their feel good rockstar anthem “Black Beatles.” Though the song has been out since October (the track enjoyed early spins as part of a mix on ATL’s HOT 107.9 FM), it seems many people are just now finding out about the song. Streetz 94.5 FM announced the song had made the top 3 on the charts a few days ago, many after it’s competitor HOT 107.9.
Coming across exactly as the title states, “Black Beatles” is a feel-good rock rap anthem from two very urban rappers. The clash of genres certainly creates a certain amount of rock flair that shines through in the excellent chorus, mesmerizing beat and carefully chosen lyrics. Gucci Mane rounds out the track with some of his first verses since his release. They aren’t exactly GOAT Gucci, but they don’t detract from the overall feel of the song either. If you haven’t already, do yourself a favor and check out this track. You can also check out Rae Sremmurd’s latest album “Sremmlife 2” and Gucci Mane’s recent “Woptober.”
