Get the boost you need for this week with this week’s Hot Ones & Essentials for drum & bass, house and rap.
How’s it going? Hope your week is going well. Here’s quite a few EDM (and maybe a few rap) tunes to get you started on the right foot and make it to that all-too-precious weekend (we’re about halfway there kings and queens).
Week of September 12th Hot Ones & Essentials
This essentials runs the gamut from some of the most well-known artists to some very under-rated gems. Check out several breakdowns below and let me know in the comments what gets you through the week!
Bishu – “Hurt Me Too (feat. McCall)”
Opening with Bishu’s “Hurt Me Too” this excellent Monstercat label release is the perfect blend of melodic drum ‘n bass.
Ghastly never ceases to amaze me. His sheer variety of styles are always refreshing, and “Every Night” is no exception. This quite intriguing blend of bass, house and lounge music is available copyright free from the Dim Mak label.
Internet Money – “Blast Off (feat. Juice Wrld & Trippie Redd)
What more is there to say. It’s Trippie Redd and the late great Juice Wrld.
Droeloe – “Collisions”
I haven’t heard much from Droeloe that I don’t like. I’ll admit I only recently discovered them but their music not only challenges my brain in thinking what exactly, EDM “is”, but I often forget “what exactly was I doing” as I get lost in many of their tracks. Droeloe collabs are also very fire.
Smiley – Over the Top (feat. Drake)
A Different Way and its remixes, DJ Snake, Lauv
Originally from an exclusive DJ Snake livestream this timeless bop with incredible vocals from Lauv has gotten some solid remix treatment and a future house remake from Nalestar.
Seb Wiggins – Waiting for the Answer
“Waiting for the Answer” has got some excellent vocals and marvelous progression from it’s very light intro evolving into a more progressive house vibe.
Hotboii & Future – “Nobody Special”
Still bangs, no doubt.
DJ Snake – “Middle”
Another one for times when you need something a bit more downtempo, “The Middle” from DJ Snake’s 2016 album “Encore” is perfect for sunset viewing, life reminiscing, and pool lounging.
Without listening to the whole album it’s easy to assume gems like this weren’t among far more mainstream tracks like “Ocho Cinco.” They do say don’t judge a book by its cover.
Jake Robertz – Time (Protostar Remix) [ft. Teasha Huns]
Talk about some melodic drum ‘n bass, you know I’m here for it. Protostar’s remix of Jake Robertz “Time” with vocals from Teasha Huns has been on repeat all week.
The buildup between drops is just too great with Huns lush vocals, “I just wanna spend my time with you / I’m feelin’ everything you do” before I’m head bobbing, almost banging to the pure DnB drop.
Animadrop – Nobody Like Me
I have to be thankful to Youtube Music for actually showing me Animadrop. He clearly puts a ton of thought into his work and the interplay between levels, fields of sound within his songs.
He also often makes “making of” videos great for producers. “Nobody Like Me” feels wonderful to ride in the whip with, bass blaring as you declare “ain’t nobody like me.”
Phlegmatic Dogs – High Volume
THIS should be played at high volume…preferably. Hey, he said it not me.
Dirtybird’s Scavazza drops the “Shake Your Hearts – EP” with two slick original tracks and a remix from Harry Romero.
Dirtybird has been busy lately. Doing numerous live sets throughout the week, recently Scavazza and Harry Romero played an enjoyable set to help give all of us stuck at home something to bop to. Scavazza opened with his recently released track “Shake Your Hearts” which couldn’t help but immediately catch my ear.
The peaceful repetitive piano/synth lulls you into a deep trance. The vocals chanting “shake your hearts…” possess a very Santigold feel as the track builds before the bass creeps in.
The music video seems to have been simultaneously released, and features a bit of political commentary. Scavazza is watching the news on TV, which is filled with anxiety-producing headlines, mainly coming out of the United States, and the Brazilian DJ has had enough, turning it off to go spend time outside, on the beach, in the company of real people.
Also included in the EP are the tracks “Hey” and Harry Romero’s remix of “Shake Your Hearts”
New Future Bounce, Code Blox x Vocy’s remix of “Never Alone” by Felix Jaehn and Mesto.
[Future Bounce:] Never Alone (ft. VCATION) [Code Blox x Vocy Remix]
Courtesy of Illumi Music, is the certifiably futuristic and bouncy (living up to its genre) remix of “Never Alone” by Felix Jaehn & Mesto featuring VCATION. Remixed by Code Blox and Vocy the remix opens with a light dance chord before segueing into the drop.
Positive vocals and a light, bouncy feel make this the perfect pick-me-up for rainy days, rough times, or just shaking feelings of loneliness. Check out Illumi Music’s Youtube channel for more tunes like this one!
DES3ETT’s remix of Afrojack & BROHUG’s “Let It Rip (feat. Titus)” by is a certified banger.
Let It Rip (DES3ETT Remix) – Afrojack, BROHUG (feat. Titus)
Check out this massive remix here off of Global Remix Battle I EP, a re-work of the house god Afrojack and masters of bass BROHUG’s “Let It Rip (feat. Titus) by DES3ETT. DES3ETT, a.k.a., Cristian Verdes has been on the EDM scene for over a decade often re-working and dropping bootleg remixes of hit tracks.
