As down tempo music is on the rise, the term ‘ambient’ and ‘melodic’ is thrown around so often it has almost lost its meaning. With that being said, it wasn’t until now I found a song that truly encompassed the definition of ambient. Brought to you from our favorite bass connoisseur, Kill Paris returns today with his latest original “You Don’t Love Me No More”. Following up his release “Space Forest”, the second track from his forthcoming album is smooth, sweet and has just enough funk. Keeping in time with the outer space theme, the bass-centric tune soothes the soul as it glides through wavy synths and calming instrumentations. His album “Galaxies Between Us” is set to be released off the ultra talented producer’s own label “Sexy Electric” on April 14th. Check out the stream and grab the free download below.
Say hello to Los Angeles-based songstress Lex Famous. This past week, she released an edit of Rufus Du Sol‘s tune “Desert Night,” and she did it right.

Her dreamy pipes have been featured by the likes of Benson and Overjoy, so make sure to go ahead and check out “Hot Mess” and “Monsterous” while you’re at it.
Sporadically pumping out releases over the last year, SYRE is an expert at flying just under the radar. Marking his 10th original, Dmitriy Burenok (aka SYRE) newest creation upholds his long line of fire releases. Titled “Burn”, the track starts with unexpected ping pong sounds that eloquently segue into wavy synths, guitar slides and Kendra Dias’ smooth vocals. Adopted by Next Wave Records, be sure to grab your free copy of “Burn” here. Enjoy!
It’s Miami season once again, and that only means one thing: funky track edits catered for late night dance parties. My Digital Enemy has done the honor of dropping a nasty edit of Missy Elliot and their original tune “Bassline Soundz.” That string melody you know all too well is sampled seemlessly in the melodic arrangement. The big bass drops brings in the mashed vox and make for a sick party tune. Grab this one for free and keep your eye on My Digital Enemy.
Next Wave Records has been somewhat quiet for the past weeks, after a slurry of releases from Price Fox, Manilla Killa, Taches — to name a few.

Very on point with his own productions, this one has Jerry Folk written all over it. It’s available for free download, so snag this one right now. Tracklist after the jump.
Over the past three months, we’ve seen quite the hand of remixes dealt by the mysterious guise known as Foreign & Domestic. Blending elements of g-house and ghetto tech, this new project is definitely keeping things fresh. Today, the track in question is a remix of “Bubblegum” done to grimy ghetto perfection. Some haunting vox-pitching and a tough bassline are the main attraction, so I’m guessing you’ll be hearing this played out in Miami quite a few times. Grab the free DL now and look out for more Foreign & Domestic.

His latest is called “Broadway,” and it definitely showcases a softer side of the producer. Simple vocal samples play along with a light and airy synth arrangement, making for a really pleasant track.
