Pierce Fulton recently dropped this month’s episode of his hit Sirius radio show, Get Weird and it is certainly the most dynamic piece of the series so far. This month’s episode further demonstrates that Pierce has a rare ability to put together a solid genre-blurring mix that not only radiates energy but also keeps the listener guessing.

After last year’s CHAIND Vol.1, witch house wizards White Ring , proved to become the ambassadors of the occult ghetto grave-rave tunes. This week they gave away their Waka Flocka ‘Murda‘ remix as a preview of their upcoming tape CHAIND Vol.2. Filled with machine guns, horror synths & stuttering demonic raps, White Ring smothered the life out of the original… reassuring this new mixtape will be more than satisfying for all you hooligan ravers out there.

With every passing day, it seems as though electronic dance music moves further into other genres and media outlets such as movie soundtracks and commercials. When my buddy informed me last week that TheFatRat produced a Lupe Fiasco track, I immediately had to find it and hear what it was all about. After listening, it was clear that our favorite disco-electro producer is at the forefront of the dance music/hip-hop fusion with this tasteful dubstep track that maintains a perfect balance of commercial appeal and gritty-ness of the underground. Enjoy the unfinished version of “American Terrorist Pt. 2″ after the jump. √+
Capturing sounds form the center of all things supernatural (Bermuda Triangle), Otto Von Shirach’s music is indescriptible. Squirting spastic influences of booty bass, death metal, breakcore, hip hop, goregrind and more… the Cuban/German antihero has managed to become one of the weirdest most revolutionary musicians in electronic music. His extreme enthusiasm and low brow sense of humor is by far one of my most loved things about his art. After 3 years away gathering sounds from the future, Otto is back with his new album ‘Supermeng’ on Monkey Town Records, where he illustrates menacing every day stories of the life of a descarado super human full of sucierias y cabronerias.

Know the glitch-funk duo, , Dads on Display, that I’ve posted about previously? One-half of the duo, Tony Mendez, also has an alias, Lindsay Lowend, for his instrumental hip-hop productions. Though his tracks are trap-inspired, they don’t necessarily align with the heavy southern vibe that is typical within the genre. The Lindsay Lowend sound stays true to a spectrum of emotions with both a downtempo, introspective feel, and more of a party-friendly energy. It’s our pleasure to give you the the exclusive download of the excellent unofficial EP below, and if you need further convincing, check out the streams after the jump.

Never before has there been such a focus on ATL branded ‘trap’ music, which is great for the undisputed king of A-town Daniel Disaster (Heroes x Villians) because he’s being doing this long before it caught fire on the blogosphere. In February, he debuted his new VAVLT BOYZ project, which fuses everything from UK Funky to Gucci Mane. On the third installment of the mixtape series, VALVT resident DJ Respire takes the reigns and produces a bass heavy landscape that’s equally as lucid as it is dark.
While hip hop may not be my everyday forte (although that was a slick little rhyme right there), I do know a thing or two about Summertime vibes. And that’s just what this pairing of La Zebra + C Plus has to offer: some bright, funky wordplay accompanied by grooved up, sunrayed, flute loopin’ beats.
The combination of La Zebra (one half of LBCK) + C Plus (the 23 year-old versatile Sactown emcee) proves to be a winning formula with innovation that is exemplified in both the lyrics and the beats. Top notch Summer vibes.
Hats off to Hall of Fame Records for bringing hip hop + dance together on this brilliant first release. Grab the Oh Lord remix of “Sunshine On My Mind” for free and purchase the original + instrumental OUT FRIDAY JULY 13TH on iTunes, Amazon + Beatport.
Building tremendous anticipation since WMC this march and its debut on Annie Mac’s show last month, Pleasurekraft‘s ‘Skeleton Key’ is out today on Great Stuff Records. With the help of house legend Green Velvet (aka Cajmere), The haunting tech house of Pleasurekraft take on the bouncey vocals of Green Velvet and create a rollercoaster ride bigger than either of them probably expected. This is one of my top tunes for the year already as well as coolest collaboration yet. I strongly suggest you pick up this tune on beatport, plus check out more of Pleasurekraft and Green Velvet below!

After an unfortunately lengthy recovery from a devastating seizure, the Dominican big haired moombah badman known as Munchi has returned with his first EP of the year, catching wind on the recent surge of ‘Trap house.’ Just this week he released the entire EP for FREE on Mad Decent, writing a personalized description of each track and how they all break down:
The Rotterdam Trap EP is basically a shoutout to the tracks that were big when I was going out here in Rotterdam at 17. I was kinda sad that these tracks weren’t remixed and basically forgotten. Nah, I don’t really like that lol, so I gave them a little update with some Trap and a lil touch of Bubbling here and there (not Trap Bubbling tho). Haha, and the EP cover was fun to make too lol. One word: Chaos. It looks kinda random, but if you actually look at it, it isn’t. Shout out to my wife!! lol.
So like I always used to do, with an EP release there is the more detailed description with the tracks. Read it or go directly to the downloads below haha, BOW!!
