[NEW DJ Mix:] Sept. 2017 Dance & Bass House Mix
Check out my latest mix above, a quick mix of this summer’s eclectic dance music and bass-house hits! Starting with some smooth house from Kraak & Smaak then progressively getting grimier and more bass ridden, this mix is made to dance to. Follow me on Soundcloud, Twitter & more through the page for my mix!
I’ve got some bass house bangers for y’all to listen to as I prepare to head off to Imagine Music Festival. This time I will try to upload my coverage of Atlanta, GA’s biggest EDM fest ASAP. I must apologize for sleeping so long on uploading my Shaky Beats 2017 footage.
[Dance/Deep Bass:] Ballin’ – BROHUG
One of my most favorite dj groups as of late, BROHUG, has been dropping new music like crazy. Like all their other music, Stockholm-based BROHUG, specializes in face-melting, panty dropping, bass shaker anthems, and “Ballin'” is no different.
Filled with high energy, lots of bass and ending out (great mixable outro by the way) with a funky bass filled beat that could easily be mixed into another party-starting banger. Check out Ballin’ above and download it for free! Check out more from BROHUG below.
[Bass/House:] Papiyon – Trophy
Next up, electronic DJ Papiyon keeps the bass dropping with “Trophy.” Also a free download, the bass laden track with dark, yet melodic overtones is an instaclassic. Guaranteed to make the party, dancefloor, wherever tf live af. Check it out and download it for free above!
[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.”
CiD – Love is Blind
CiD is certainly an artist to be reckoned with. Having dropped numerous bangers on his own, and with fellow house giant “Kaskade,” I still have yet to find music from him that I don’t really like. “Love is Blind” is an awesome future bass-house track that pumps up the volume with slowed down vocal samples over futuristic and far out electro-synths. The result is a song with instruments you’d normally associate with a more chill, mellow house cut being used to create a floor-filling club banger. Check out other songs I’ve featured by CiD such as his collaboration with Kaskade in “Us” or one of his more recent house bangers “Sweet Memories”
GTA & Wax Motif – Get It All
EDM producer GTA does it again, with help from house producer Wax Motif in “Get It All.” While the song doesn’t really do anything sonically that is very novel or unique, it’s combinations of melodies is soothing to the ear and you can’t help but bop to it. Check out a rap collab by GTA and rapper Vince Staples in “Little Bit of This.”
Ghost (feat. Vince Staples) [Major Lazer Remix] – With You
You can also check out a very cool Future EDM type track featuring Vince Staples in “Ghost” by With You above.
Wrong – marshmello
Colourr – marshmello
If you haven’t heard of marshmello yet and consider yourself an EDM fan you have got some serious life choices to re-evaluate. Taking the genre by storm since his arrival, he considers his music “deep fluffy sexy trap house” according to his Facebook. He is indeed correct in that marshmello‘s tracks successfully combine elements of house, trap and even older styles of dance music to create truly epic tracks. One of his older tracks “Find Me” was on a mix CD I left in my mother’s car about 4-6 months ago and she still bumps it to this day! Check it out below and a different style of futuristic EDM on the next page.
Find Me – marshmello
Check out some of these IDM (Intelligent Dance Music) tracks; notable for their departure from some of the more conventional characteristics of dance music.
Gud Vibrations – NGHTMRE & SLANDER
Cool (Mittens Remix) – Alesso
Waaaait [a.k.a. lonelyfuckingsamurai] – Mr. Carmack
Festival Style Dance / Future Big Room
Kaskade & CID – Us
“Us” Official Music Video
We are the start of something new
And they don’t need to know about you,
’bout me, ’bout us,
‘Bout you, ’bout me, ’bout us
Just in time for the warmer weather, perfect for Spring and Summer EDM fests, one of my favorite house producers, Kaskade, has released a music video for his single “Us” made in collaboration with CID. The music video follows a family in the Philippines throughout their day, taking an observational look at universal, albeit basic human interactions and emotions.
The song definitely channels massive energy with its minimalistic build-up into a bass-blasting ride through heavy synth waves and chords. “Us” is sure to be a club and festival favorite and it is great to see Kaskade still coming out with material all-the-while changing up his musical styles, and doing so successfully. This song will hopefully be one of many future Big-Room hits to come.
Dancehall / Jersey House
Ayo Jay feat. Fetty Wap – Your Number (Mvtana & Lil E Remix)
Melvitto on the beat
Just wanna tell you a story ’bout dis girl wey I just meet
She looking fly, yeah she lookin’neat
Ya boy looking like money, right from my head down to my feet but,
She dey smile at mi,
I dun really know what it mean…
This song has been in heavy rotation the past week or so on all my music-enabled devices. Producer Mvntana‘s massive remix of Ayo Jay’s “Your Number.” Transforming the floor-filling dancehall number, featuring Fetty Wap, the remix combines the original’s dancehall and reggae vibes and melds it with bass-bumping Jersey House.
The result is an insanely catchy high-energy dance track doing the hot 2013 single justice, well worth checking out. You can listen to the original and watch its music video below the remix above. Learn more about the artists below:
