[Commercial with Cool Music:] My Favorite Things (Urban Noize Edit) – Nora Khalif
Commercials have increasingly turned to EDM to be featured in their adverts. Car companies have probably been sampling the electronic genre’s gems for quite some time, since the rise of dubstep almost a decade ago. Volvo stepped up and featured a remix of a traditional song (along the lines of Toyota’s Bippity Boppity Boo EDM Remix).
In a rare twist however, a full version of the remix was also released and uploaded to Youtube. Often when EDM is used in commercials, the song will be a snippet produced only for the commercial and a full version is never released. Volvo made a smart move featuring Urban Noize’s remix of the song which also has a full version. Enjoy it above!
Tchami – World to Me (feat. Luke James) [Cazztek Remix]
Tchami’s “World to Me (feat. Luke James)” was one of the songs hot enough off his album to warrant its own EP. I’ve covered the Rootkit Remix & the Dillon Nathaniel Remix but there’s another flip just as epic that deserves not to be overlooked.
Cazztek’s remix of the song takes it in an interesting direction. A fusion of bass house, dance house and Future House this remix blends all these elements for an uplifting, atmospheric remix with plenty of energy.
A catchy beat and vocal sample play over the opening hook, “Baby, you should know/that you mean the world to me” with trance synths into a bass filled future house drop. The drop alone, heavy enough to fill dancefloors, refreshingly devolves back into broken down layers at the second chorus/full hook.
Ending out with warped bass and synths and then the return of the distorted vocal sample results in a song so upbeat, so funky, so different it’ll turn just about any person’s head.
Check it out above as well as more remixes from Tchami’s “Confession” label YouTube page.
Bass gods Airwolf & Rrotik bring the fire in their collab “What You Think Gonna Happen,” a dark building masterpiece of bass and filthy flows.
Definitely something you’d hear in the most underground, off-the-map house & bass clubs for enthusiasts of dark, powerful electronic music. Do yourself a favor and connect with your underground raver side with this cut ✌🏽🕺.
The genre of house continues to evolve every day. Contained in the same sub-family as Bass House is G-House, house that frequently samples gangsta rap vocals alongside heavy bass. These types of songs are filthy, dirty and exactly the kind of tracks you’d hear in the deeper cuts of a rave, or somewhere they don’t play pop EDM.
Sonny Banks “Good Girls” is a great example of pumped up G-House (some of it is more downtempo) and is expectable from fellow Confession label mate to Dustycloud and Loge21.
Check it out above.
[Bass House:] Kream & Clara Mae – Drowning (BROHUG Remix)
BROHUG does it again with a sick bass house remix of “Drowning” by Kream & Clara Mae. Steady beat, rising bass and synths comprise this Hi-Energy banger. If you’re in the South East area look out for BROHUG at Atlanta’s Shaky Beats this May.
[Bass House:] Tchami – Don’t Let Me Down (feat. Kaelyn Behr) [Loge21 Remix]
One of my new favorite bass house producer’s Loge21 released a remix of Tchami’s “Don’t Let Me Down” today.
The remix incorporates heavy bass and deep synth chords amping up the energy of the original. Be sure to check it out!
[G House/Bass House:]
Hoes get low, shake that ass on the floor.
Bringing you a G-House banger (think the genre along the likes of BROHUG, Loge21, Dombresky and more) with a title that is true to its words. This song is going to give me nightmares of songs with bass that drops as hard and heavy as this. If you need something heavy going into 2018, don’t sleep on this one.
