[Ambient Trap / Future House:] Bebe Rexha – I Got You (Pryor Remix)


[Ambient Trap / Future House:]
Bebe Rexha – I Got You (Pryor Remix)


Courtesy of the good folks at Selected. Music channel on YouTube, is a brand new Future House banger from Bebe Rexha remixed by Pryor. “I Got You” has quality future house synths, great vocals and is calming and energizing at the same time. Throw in a little trap snare and you’ve got a perfect track for summer days at the beach, by the pool, out in the backyard or wherever your heart’s desire.

[Ambient House/IDM:] Zhu – Intoxicate


[Ambient House/Intelligent Dance Music]
Intoxicate – Zhu

What can I say about Zhu? Other than that his music is mind blowing, Zhu has been making waves in the electronic scene for quite some time now. In one of his latest releases “Intoxicate” he reaffirms his rising position among electronic producers.

“Intoxicate” is a wild, deep journey through spacey sounds, trippy bass lines and incredibly catchy computer vocals. You can’t help but move and sway to the beat as it builds up and breaks down, or for the final chorus and trap snare reprise near the ending. As the computer repeats, “Intoxicate…exhilarate…stimulate…accelerate…” you find your body and mind wanting to do the same.

Do yourself a favor and check “Intoxicate” out, as well as more from Zhu including a great remix by Enda of his song “Faded.”

[Electronic/Reggae:] Major Lazer – Run Up (feat. PARTYNEXTDOOR & Nicki Minaj)


[Electronic, Reggae & Dance]
Run Up (feat. PARTYNEXTDOOR & Nicki Minaj)

It’s 2017, and continuing from the previous year there is no shortage of mainstream artists collaborating with EDM DJ’s and producers changing the face of the electronic genre altogether. Artists that one would’ve never thought would be on electronic tracks are now commonplace, and that’s the case with Major Lazer’s new song “Run Up” featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR and Nicki Minaj.

Combining Major Lazer’s signature “reggae” sound, electronic/bass rhythms and a catchy beat, the tune is a lighthearted track for the winter season. While there are no big drops or shift-changing elements that take the song to the all-the-way-turnt level, it’s still an enjoyable listen. Nicki Minaj sounds best having the last verse to herself, keeping her more as “an addition” to the song as opposed to the focus, smart move on Major Lazer’s part. What do you think about this song and about Minaj’s feature?

[Update:] Apparently a music video shot in Trinidad & Tobago is expected to drop for this song relatively soon (as of Feb. 2, 2017).

[Dub-Trap] HYTYD – Like That


[Dub-Trap]
HYTYD – Like That

HYTYD brings the noise in his dubstep/trap hybrid “Like That.” Beginning sounding like one of your more typical dubstep songs the first drop melds trap snares with Middle Eastern sounding horns and synths and steadily comes back to its original dubstep sound. While the dubstep portions of the track seem predictable, it’s what HYTYD does in between them that is the most interesting. A catchy repeating synth chord, a nice steady, semi-fast BPM and generous amounts of bass make for an interesting sound that EDM fans should check out.

You can hear more from HYTYD on his Soundcloud.

[Dance/Deep House:] CiD & Kaskade – Sweet Memories (Extended Mix) // [Electronic Trap] Far East Movement x Marshmello – Freal Luv (feat. Tinashe & Chanyeol of EXE)


[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)


[Electronic Trap]
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
-Chanyeol

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 areamarshmello will be performing at The Gold Room in Buckhead, Atlanta on November 23rd. Pre-sale tickets are already sold out.

 

 

[R&B EDM Remixes] Mario Winans – I Don’t Wanna Know (Zoo#Clique Edit) // Destiny’s Child – Say My Name (Synthetic Epiphany Remix)


[R&B EDM Remixes] [Deep House/R&B]
Mario Winans – I Don’t Wanna Know (Zoo#Clique Edit)

Today, we’ve got two great EDM remixes of two very classic R&B tunes that are a throwback to early ’00s rhythm and blues music.

First up, a chill down-tempo, but still massive remix of Mario Winans “I Don’t Wanna Know” coming to us from CDeep Music’s Youtube Channel. The Zoo#Clique Remix expounds on the original adding layers of atmospheric deep ambient house, clublike basslines and rhythms and slowed vocals. This remix certainly does the original justice retaining most of the elements from the original, save for the stupidly sick sample of The Fugees “Ready or Not,” but that’s forgivable. Nevertheless, don’t miss out on this awesome track and summer 2016 ambient-chill banger! Download it for free!


[Ambient Future R&B]
Destiny’s Child – Say My Name (Synthetic Epiphany Remix)

Next, from the legendary R&B trio Destiny’s Child comes an epic remix of one of their most well known and popular single’s “Say My Name.” Destiny’s Child and its individual members are no strangers to remixes (especially of the electronic variety; check out a few under this post). The Synthetic Epiphany Remix re-imagines the R&B bopping anthem as a chill house club single that’ll round off nights with its building layers of ambiance, future sounds and throwback nostalgia.

[New Music] [Future House/Electronic] Palastic – Side Note (feat. LissA)


[Songs from Youtube, Courtesy of “La Belle Musique” Group]

Just in time for the spring/summer like weather (at least in the ATL), comes a fresh new Future-House track with plenty of bass, futuristic synths and female vocals reminiscent of Lana Del Rey, Rozes, or Wild Belle and the like. “Side Note” featuring LissA is a smooth ride into chilled out female vocals, that soon ramps up into the futuristic synth chords. What makes it shine above your average future-house track however is the high-quality vocals, as well as a moving, eargasmic melody played in the background (like by the piano/horns). This song is great for bumping in the whip or at home while melting into its hodge-podge of EDM’s pop side with Future House’s crescendoing melodies.

You can buy the song on iTunes here: Side Note (feat. LissA) – Palastic
