The genre of house continues to evolve every day. Contained in the same sub-family as Bass House is G-House, house that frequently samples gangsta rap vocals alongside heavy bass. These types of songs are filthy, dirty and exactly the kind of tracks you’d hear in the deeper cuts of a rave, or somewhere they don’t play pop EDM.
Sonny Banks “Good Girls” is a great example of pumped up G-House (some of it is more downtempo) and is expectable from fellow Confession label mate to Dustycloud and Loge21.
Check it out above.
Skepta – Man (JAUZ Remix)
Bass House and EDM Producer Jauz went off on his remix of Skepta’s “Man.” With plenty of bass, UK Grime lyrics and flow, it’s a solid remix. This is probably one of the first few Skepta songs I have heard (and immediately liked). I have nothing against UK Grime or the UK scene, I’m just not heavy in it. After hearing this song however I might have to join the crew or the gang. *Salute
Got another brand new mix for you guys. Please enjoy a new mix for the beginning of the new year!
[Indie Hip-Hop/Rap] Karma Knot – Came Up
[Independent Hip-Hop:] The U-Express (feat. Defcon) – 9th Wonder
Got some real hip-hop for ya hip-hop heads. This throwback comes from my earlier days (circa 2007-2010) when I was still a much bigger rap head. I had good friends who were plugged into some life-changing rap music from artists such as 9th Wonder, Chaundon, Murs, Little Brother, Cam’Ron, The Alchemist and more. Music from these guys and from that era will live with me for the rest of my life. Not simply because it is real hip-hop, without all the bling, gimmicks, etc. But this is music that will always bring me back to those days several years ago, and anytime I listen to it I feel…uplifted.
Take some time and rewind with this very chill, independent hip-hop number, fresh from my nostalgic mind.
[Hip-Hop/Rap:] NAV & Metro Boomin’ – Perfect Timing
Perfect Timing – NAV & Metro Boomin’
By now you’ve probably heard NAV’s music. Whether you realized it or not the rapper has made quite a name for himself in 2017. Featured on the hit Travis Scott single “Beibs in the Trap” NAV has seen his media coverage balloon with the help of friends like The Weeknd and Kylie Jenner. Canadian-born, the Punjabi MC has been making waves throughout the year and has also been featured on more and more tracks, while also releasing mixtapes and an album. Don’t miss out on his collaboration with Metro Boomin’ in “Perfect Timing.”
NAV’s arguably most popular song “Myself”
Key! – Yukon (feat. Omari Shakir) [Prod. Su$h Ceej & Moe Hundreds)
I can’t help myself I’m in love with your hoe,
Can’t help myself I’m in love with your hoe
I don’t want no heart I just wanna throat
I ran in the money, I’m lettin’ it go
In love with the money #relationshipgoals
Coming from Atlanta hip-hop producer and rapper Key! is “Yukon,” featuring Omari Shakir. With a catchy hook, and solid beat (produced by Ceej of ATL’s Two-9 collective) and Moe Hundreds, the collaboration with the Outta Pocket Boyz “Yukon” bangs, and just has an overall, different feel that is quite refreshing to hear in today’s rap game.
Omari Shakir brings some Future-like flair to the track singing undeniably addicting croons that have that lazy Sunday, street feel that makes this a perfectly great rap track; one that isn’t necessarily trying to be some tough, gangster number. Instead the song both goes hard and doesn’t take itself too too seriously, it’s simply fun. Key! and Su$h Ceej plan to release an album titled FRVR on February 9th, 2017. You can check out more on their Soundcloud pages.
