[Hip-Hop:] GTA – Little Bit of This (feat. Vince Staples) *from Watch Dogs 2 // [Dance/Trap:] Hoodboi – Closer (feat. ASTR) [Rytmeklubben Remix]


[Hip-Hop/Rap:] GTA – Little Bit of This (feat. Vince Staples)

And for the last time I ain’t on no conscious shit
I like big girls, fast whips, ass & tits,
Mansions of white women, might jack some shit
So stop actin’ like I’m a activist

House DJ and producer GTA has shown he can be versatile. With singles and remixes spanning several different genres, it comes to surprise that he can bring his unique sound to a hip-hop track. “Little Bit of This” features up and coming rapper Vince Staples rapping over an interesting beat with an almost Latin or Asian feel to it. Staples wordplay is just as interesting, “Been crazy come where you livin’ at/kick down the door/get down to get dough/and I ain’t come here for the chitty-chat” and the insanely catchy chorus solidifies the funky flow.

“Little Bit of This” has enjoyed some exposure being the “trailer” theme song for the Watch Dogs 2 video game, for Xbox One and Playstation 4. The soundtrack features a variety of music from many different genres and is as varied and inclusive as a GTA soundtrack.


[Dance & Trap]
Hoodboi – Closer (feat. ASTR) [Rytmeklubben Remix]

Trap DJ Hoodboi has had success in his genre and through remixes of his and by others into Jersey House and club songs. “Closer” is an easily-missed gem that has some quality vocals and interesting melodies worth checking out. Particularly in the Rytmeklubben remix, there is a stark contrast of heavy bass and drops into trap snares with light bell noises and calming female vocals. Check the song out above, and for a more uptempo Jersey House remix check out DJ Hoodboi & Falcons remix of Ty Dolla $ign’s “Paranoid” below:

[Festival Dance / Big Room:] Kaskade & CID – Us // [Dancehall // Jersey Bounce:] Ayo Jay feat. Fetty Wap – Your Number (Mvntana Remix)

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:

[REMIX FEATURE: Tinashe’s “2 On”] from DJ Irresistible, Luca x Lush, and DJ Q [Jersey House, Future House/Chillwave & Deep House]


DJ Irresistible Jersey House Remix:

LUCA LUSH Remix:

DJ Q Deep House Remix:

This Remix Feature is on one of my favorite singles from California-based R&B songstress and dancer, Tinashe. “2 On” featuring Schoolboy Q is considered by many to be her break-out single that put her into the mainstream. I highlighted the song when it was first released, Drake’s “remix”, and the [at the time] a few select listenable EDM remixes shortly after it’s release. Chiefly, Wax Motif’s floor-filling dance remix, and TOKiMONSTA’s classy, seductive remix, which some fans very expertly choreographed in the link below.

By far two of the best remixes of Tinashe’s top 40/radio debut are by Jersey house DJ and producer, DJ Irresistible (check out another nice Jersey House remix here from DJ Poppa Dubb). Of note also is the Future House and alternative remakes by LUCA LUSH and DJ Q respectively.
