Ba-kuura’s remix of iLoveMakonnen’s serenade to ATL girls “Tonight” is simply astonishing. Sigala drops some new Future House with UK Grime influence.

Sigala – Sweet Lovin’
The current state of EDM music never ceases to amaze as it has branched and developed into so many unique styles in these past few years. Full of hometown pride I am happy to feature Ba-kuura’s future Atlanta dance/quasi-IDM remix of iLoveMakonnen’s “Tonight“. The added drums and bass compliment well Makonnen’s warbly crooning, nothing new from the Atlanta rapper whose “singing” strikes somewhere between corny and genius.
Next up, what starts out as your typical chill, yet up-tempo House groove dissolves the familiar rhythm structure and switches up the beat with funky UK Grime-style basslines. Sigala’s “Sweet Lovin’” is right up there with most of today’s Future House but somehow, just does it a little bit better. Needless to say, the song is pure crack, and not to be missed by those who appreciate good music.
Another simply epic track out of the collective EDM group MVNGCSTL (Moving Castle), future house (or as described on a Youtube comment: advanced epic) hit “Make Out” by EDM artists Ba-kuura and Objectives. This smooth, chilled-out dance, R&B, house smasher samples Alicia Keys’ “Unthinkable (I’m Ready).” Many in the EDM community may recognize this sample from another smash house hit, “Stay” by Henry Krinkle or one of its many remixes.

Next up is trap banger “Soundclash” from two trap gods themselves’, Flosstradamus and TroyBoi. This collabo works particularly well here producing a spacey, trap banger incorporating trappy snares & hi-hats and some well known samples (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 DO IT! & the robotic letter vocals at the end). Both artists are well established in their own right; Flosstradamus being one of the artists that pioneered EDM trap music, and TroyBoi, a burgeoning British trap DJ on the come up in the EDM scene (one of his tracks was recently featured on the hit TV show Empire!)
