With the popularity of acts like Wave Racer & What So Not reaching new heights, Trap, Bass & Jersey Club seem to be thriving in Australia. Perth producers Night Cruise are also in it to win it on their Trap-style rejig of Destiny’s Child called “Say My Wat”. It’s a fresh new take on the 2000 classic “Say My Name” that’s less on the grimey side & more on the sunset Trap side. Go to Night Cruise’s Facebook page, give’em a like & download “Say My Wat” for free…it’s what Beyonce would want you to do.
The long awaited and much talked about collab between our boy RL Grime and Emoh aka What So Not has finally surfaced on soundcloud, and the result does not stray far from the rumors… this track is a monster that we can expect to slay the festival circuit starting this month in Miami. Sinister horns flare atop a “big bad bass line” and are teased with the melodic vocal chanting “tell me.” Listen first below!

LA’s Dr. Fresch has been cultivating a strong online presence with his catchy bass-driven productions, while running his own label, Prep School Recordings, that is becoming a hub for emerging talent. With a diverse style ranging from chilled-out trap to disco and deep house, he draws upon a medley of influences to manifest his genre-fusing sound that has won him top spots on the Hype Machine and Billboard’s Next Big Sound. In his guest mix, Dr. Fresch weaves through club-ready floor fillers, like his latest track, “You’re My Obsession” ft. Nate Dogg & Animotion, Dusky’s “Careless,” and Tchami’s A Tribe Called Quest remix, before slowly dropping the tempo for a smooth, vibey finish.
Apart from his mix, we were able to catch up with Dr. Fresch about his latest single, LA’s influence on his music, plans for Prep School Recordings, and his own future musical endeavors. Read the full interview and check out the tracklist for the mix after the jump.

Some silky sunset sounds from Yung Sa†an (M|O|D) in his newest single that’s perfect for SoCal twilight vibes. At a brief yet enigmatic two and a half minutes long, just take some deep breaths, roll the windows down, and let it play out.
First debuted in his mix for Diplo&Friends on BBC Radio 1xtra, our friend Valentino Khan‘s new tune, “Cavepaint,” goes into the Jurassic era with caveman chatter and enough pumping bass to feel like you’ve been hit over the head with a club. “Cavepaint” also comes along with a Trap VIP counterpart, where Valentino slows it down and brings in the real dinosaur bass. What is dinosaur bass you say? Only one way to find out. And make sure to catch Val’s upcoming remix for Felix Cartal out on Dim Mak in the next few weeks!

The Parisian young gun known as DJ Snake has been riding huge hype since his breakout Bird Machine EP, and to show his fans some TLC he just released a FREE remix of AlunaGeorge‘s “You Know You Like It” on his soundcloud. The original was already a huge jam and the Bondax remix that followed bumped it up even more, but Snake’s version is pure fire no matter if you’re into trap tempos or not. Don’t sleep on this one, most definitely a summer staple.
