Our throwback explores Canadian-Haitian DJ, Kaytranda’s soulful tracks and his upcoming music!
[Ambient/Future House:] Bullets (feat. Little Dragon) – Kaytranada
Today’s throwback post focuses on Canadian DJ, Kaytranada, whose infectious sound causes listeners to take notice the moment they hear one of his songs. I’d first heard of him around the time I initially began to listen to and research Future House music several years ago. Kaytranada’s music could be called Future Lounge. It’s never really high energy or insane, and it works extremely well. He makes music you’d listen to at the beach, sailing over the ocean blue, or lounging on a tropical island.
Apparently, he’s dropping new music as well with the likes of Ty Dolla $ign and will have three new tracks by Friday. Check out some of Kaytranada’s hits below and social media info.

Just in time for the new year comes new fuego from Gucci Mane, Drake and the Migos!!
Hello all, and Happy New Year. I hope everyone has had a wonderful 2017 thus far and wish you all a wonderful year ahead.
[Hip-Hop/Rap] Gucci Mane – Both (feat. Drake) from Gucci Mane’s Return of the East Atlanta Santa
I don’t usually do this, ‘less I’m drunk or I’m high
But I’m both right now, got me talkin’ bout my life
[…] I don’t usually do this, ‘less I’m drunk or I’m high
but I’m both right now and I need you in my life
With GuWop out of prison it seems he is simply everywhere these days. Gucci Mane has been dropping music like crazy and making appearances everywhere from VICE to NY’s Power 105.1 FM. Straight from his latest mixtape East Atlanta Santa Gucci Mane is bringing straight heat with his single “Both” featuring Drake.
Starting off the track with some signature Gucci grammar-ful lyrics “I got so many felonies/I might can’t never go to Canada” you can feel the makings of a top Gucci track with lasting appeal, even before you hear “If Young Metro don’t trust you, I’m gon’ shoot yo.”
The song largely speaks for itself so I will let it do just that, rather than describe it. Young Metro’s ice-cold beat is perfect for 2017 and Drake absolutely destroys the hook making the song irresistibly catchy. The only downside is at 3 minutes and 10 seconds, the song is far too short.
[Hip-Hop/Rap] Migos – T-Shirt
Last year proved to be quite an unstoppable year for the Migos. Contrary to the general consensus that 2016 wasn’t the best of years, the Migos only rose in popularity, dropped a plethora of new music as they prepare to drop a new album. Perhaps one of the most iconic rap songs of 2016 “Bad & Boujee” has been off the charts across America and the world.
“T-Shirt” continues the traditional Migos flow with an interesting video that pits the group in the middle of the arctic wilderness with several eye-catchingly beautiful women.
Check out these two exceptional remixes of these iconic R&B singers: Destiny’s Child & Mario Winans
[R&B EDM Remixes] [Deep House/R&B]
Mario Winans – I Don’t Wanna Know (Zoo#Clique Edit)
Today, we’ve got two great EDM remixes of two very classic R&B tunes that are a throwback to early ’00s rhythm and blues music.
First up, a chill down-tempo, but still massive remix of Mario Winans “I Don’t Wanna Know” coming to us from CDeep Music’s Youtube Channel. The Zoo#Clique Remix expounds on the original adding layers of atmospheric deep ambient house, clublike basslines and rhythms and slowed vocals. This remix certainly does the original justice retaining most of the elements from the original, save for the stupidly sick sample of The Fugees “Ready or Not,” but that’s forgivable. Nevertheless, don’t miss out on this awesome track and summer 2016 ambient-chill banger! Download it for free!
[Ambient Future R&B]
Destiny’s Child – Say My Name (Synthetic Epiphany Remix)
Next, from the legendary R&B trio Destiny’s Child comes an epic remix of one of their most well known and popular single’s “Say My Name.” Destiny’s Child and its individual members are no strangers to remixes (especially of the electronic variety; check out a few under this post). The Synthetic Epiphany Remix re-imagines the R&B bopping anthem as a chill house club single that’ll round off nights with its building layers of ambiance, future sounds and throwback nostalgia.

Beyonce – Greenlight (Freemasons Remix)

[FUTURE AMBIENT CHILL / LOUNGE:]
Last (feat. Joel Ford) – Cyril Hahn
Check out this refreshingly chilled-out single from electronic artist Cyril Hahn “Last” featuring Joel Ford. Soft-house chords and melty-echoing vocals cascade into a funky backbeat and groovy lounge rhythm. The simple, repeating vocals add to the ambient chill vibe creating soundscapes of night-beaches, late night Ibiza chill-room sessions or put simply, a “just drift-away zone.”

[Future Dancehall] Too Original (feat. Elliphant & Rockwell) [Official Version] Lyric Video – Major Lazer

Major Lazer’s lastest album Peace is the Mission has generated a lot of buzz in the music world, especially concerning EDM. With the chart topping single featuring Ariana Grande, “All My Love” dominating US (and worldwide) airwaves it’s only right to do a feature on another quite popular, more eclectic single from the album “Too Original.”

[Future Ambient] Trey Songz – Slow Motion (Airia Remix)
Our Chill selection for the day would stop at the stations on the intersection of Future Chill and Ambient Euphoric, if it were a train en route to Ear-gasm Town. Airia’s spacey, mellowed out flip of Trey Songz’ crossover R&B smash-hit “Slow Motion” is a great addition to anyone’s catalog. A perfectly agreeable mélange of soft pianos, synths and melodies put an even more refreshing aural ambience compared to the original. This remix will fit right at home for fans of chill and ambient tunes or just good music in general. Happy trails friends! Cop yourself this chill-out banger by following the links below:
