Be sure to check out my latest mix, a chill mix of potential club favorites, perfect for 2017’s summer vibes.
Starting off very chill with Phantom’s epic and haunting remix of ODESZA’s “Waited 4 U” the energy picks up as the song transitions to favorites by Tchami, Diplo, Zedd and more!
By far, this is one of the smoothest mixes I’ve done and needed the least post-editing. I am very proud to present this to you all on SoundCloud. Enjoy.
[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.
I am very proud to present my first mid-summer mix “bbq lit” a mix I created to do just that, get your barbecue lit af fam! Starting off with some slower ambient EDM the mix gravitates towards heavy bass by the middle and ends with some bass-house as well as a hit dance number from Jauz and Crankdat.

Key! – Yukon (feat. Omari Shakir) [Prod. Su$h Ceej & Moe Hundreds)
I can’t help myself I’m in love with your hoe,
Can’t help myself I’m in love with your hoe
I don’t want no heart I just wanna throat
I ran in the money, I’m lettin’ it go
In love with the money #relationshipgoals
Coming from Atlanta hip-hop producer and rapper Key! is “Yukon,” featuring Omari Shakir. With a catchy hook, and solid beat (produced by Ceej of ATL’s Two-9 collective) and Moe Hundreds, the collaboration with the Outta Pocket Boyz “Yukon” bangs, and just has an overall, different feel that is quite refreshing to hear in today’s rap game.
Omari Shakir brings some Future-like flair to the track singing undeniably addicting croons that have that lazy Sunday, street feel that makes this a perfectly great rap track; one that isn’t necessarily trying to be some tough, gangster number. Instead the song both goes hard and doesn’t take itself too too seriously, it’s simply fun. Key! and Su$h Ceej plan to release an album titled FRVR on February 9th, 2017. You can check out more on their Soundcloud pages.

Pull Up Wit Ah Stick (feat. Loso Loaded) – Sahbabii
Pull up wit ah stick, let it hit
Pull up wit ah stick, let it hit
Bitch I’m with the mob, you can’t get in
we commit a sin for our niggas in the bin
After hearing this song playing at a local hookah bar in Buckhead, Atlanta after work one night I had to download it. Shoutout the DJ at Sahara Lounge that was playing this a few nights ago! “Pull Up Wit Ah Stick” is a trap banger full of Atlanta swag and “Datway!!” mentality. For those not in the ATL, that means it bangs and is totally a song you should blast in the whip with the windows down (especially on warm days here in the South).
Featuring Loso Loaded this rather underground track from Sahbabii is almost guaranteed to blow up once more people hear it. Oh yes, I would be remiss if I also failed to mention I have heard Atlanta’s Streetz 94.5 (my FM station of choice) playing this late at night. Here’s to a whole new movement of Atlanta rap, one that will hopefully take our city Dat way!! as we prepare to face the New England Patriots in the upcoming Super Bowl! (RISE UP FALCONS)
Illusion – Fynn
Get You Alone – Forbid
You already know what’s going down, when I get you alone
Cos’ you know what I came here to do when I get alone
Check out these two downtempo house tracks, courtesy of Selected.‘s Youtube Channel. The first, Fynn’s “Illusion” uses minimalist beats, haunting synths and soft-echoing vocals. The result is a semi-dark, groovy house number going above and beyond what you’d normally expect.
Next, Forbid’s “Get You Alone” has a more R&B feel to it, melded over a steady house beat and ping-pong synth noises in the background. Starting out relatively tame, with the chorus repeating, the song builds until it crescendos in it’s first drop inviting floor-shaking bass to the party. Simply funky, pulse-driving and at it’s core, exactly what good house music is supposed to sound like. Don’t miss both of these great tracks!
[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).
