Gryffin & Hotel Garuda collab remix of BANKS’ “Beggin’ For Thread”


Electronic artist Gryffin collaborates with House/EDM DJ Hotel Garuda for this dance remix of EDM legend BANKS’ “Beggin’ For Thread.” Sultry female vocals accompany a “beach-like” sound with waves of blissful melodies. Edited vocals comprise the backbeat of the song and result in a very calming track.

[October Rap:] I Don’t F*ck With You (feat. E-40) [Prod. DJ Mustard & Kanye West] – Big Sean


Sorry I’m a little late on this post but a week or so ago Big Sean released a new single titled “I Don’t F*ck With You” which has been getting major play on Atlanta radio stations. With production from DJ Mustard with his signature EDM-like synths, hand claps and snaps, and a slick sample of DJ Roger’s “Say You Love Me” which word has it Kanye (and possibly DJ Dahi) added to polish off the track.

The ending segues into a fleshed out version of Kanye’s sample with soulful singing in the background and a turn to more positive and uplifting verses from Sean, as opposed to the straight-up dissing and trash-talking the main part of the song embellishes. Many say he wrote this out of spite of Naya Riviera, but we’ll never know…

Best Youtube comment: “I hope he give a f*ck about getting Ariana Grande home before her curfew”
Internet, please, STAHP!! Deaded.

Quotable verse: “I mean for real, f*ck how you feel. F*ck your two cents if it ain’t goin’ ‘twards the bill!

Rae Sremmurd featured on Baauer’s “One Touch” with AlunaGeorge


“One Touch” – Baauer feat. AlunaGeorge and Rae Sremmurd

Two of my favorite artists, Baauer and AlunaGeorge (whom I’ve blogged about before) collab together to bring us “One Touch” with additional support from up-and-comer Rae Sremmurd (of “No Flex Zone”, and “No Type” fame). Baauer’s smooth sultry beats meld perfectly with Aluna’s beautiful vocals, and Rae Sremmurd also seems at home on this track while making Dragon Ball Z references and the like…

Updates


Sorry I haven’t posted in awhile folks, with Spring’s arrival I have been very busy as of late and dealing with several things simultaneously.

I have been a little out of the loop music wise for awhile since I took my haitus but I’m trying to get back into the swing of things. Please forgive me if some of my following posts are not recent releases, I will still be highlighting excellent eclectic music from the ATL and beyond.

On that note a lot has happened in music in the past month and several big names have held shows or will have shows in the Atlanta area. 94.5 Street’s Fest 2014 is this weekend at the Masquerade Music Park featuring several big names in the ATL music scene, the list includes T-Pain, Snootie Wild, Que from the Migos, Rich Homie Quan and many more…

Young Money Music Group and Lil Wayne will be at the Velvet Room this Sunday. There will also be a host of music festivals coming to Atlanta at this summer including Counter Point 2014!! This summer Hotlanta will he rocking and raving all night long!

Partition (Dave Aude Remix)


Partition (Dave Aude Remix)

Dave Aude’s remix to Beyonce’s “Partition” blew up charts at Hypem.com or Hype Machine, a website which tracks popular songs. The remix climbed to the No. 2 spot on the Remixes Only Chart shortly after its debut. This edit of the single has all the elements you’d expect in a dance song today, interesting parts but not fully fleshed out. Still, it will get people to the dancefloor.

SINGLE on iTunes – 2 On Feat. Schoolboy Q – Tinashe


Tinashe has been everywhere the past year or so as a force to be reckoned with in the R&B/Hip-Hop scene. Her vocals have attracted the attention of several electronic DJs who have remixed her songs six ways to Sunday. I recently posted a remix of her song “Vulnerable” by dj “Jacuzzi.”

Now her single 2 On (feat. Schoolboy Q) is available on iTunes.

This very club-friendly single, a DJ Mustard beat/production (who hisself has also had an amazing year in productions), goes well with Tinashe’s dreamy, ear-catching vocals. Check it out and give her support y’all!
