In the brilliant words of Big Sean, “Drop it to the floor, make that ass shake. Whoa, make the ground move, that’s an assquake.” Trap stars, Flosstradamus, enjoyed this verse from Ye’s “Mercy” so much that they used it as a sample in their latest freebie, downloadable now via Soundcloud. Pick it up below.
There’s something viciously nostalgic about french house producer Panteros666 latest LP Hyper Reality. This new album released by one of my favorite labels, Bromance Records, seamlessly blends 90′s hardcore rave samples and dark house vibes, unquestionably inducing you into a convulsion of no return. Hyper Reality converges into a musical concept like no other, there’s no doubt an alien abduction took place and the message is… DESTROY!
Panteros666 aka Victor Watel has spent years developing his cyber-pscychedelic aesthetic, cleverly molding genres from acid techno to future bass, and even some southern rap influences. Expect drone-type vocal samples, steady bass lines, apocalyptic synths and just an overall invitation to another dimension. Definitely not an album for the faint of heart. Check out the Hyper Reality mini mix and what Panteros666 crafted for his live shows… the future is here!

Aluna Francis and George Reid struck a chord when they released their heavily anticipated original production, “Attracting Flies,” under their moniker Aluna George. Lurking in the background of all the instantaneous hype for this new track was a remix from the Harlem Shake sensation, Bauuer. Looking to shed the stigma behind his internet craze, Baauer steps up to the plate with a huge edit to the English electronic groups new single.
My biggest worry when I saw Baauer‘s name on the remix bill was that the vocals were going to get drowned out with his signature trap sound. He dispels my preconceived notions, though, with a more sophisticated bass sound that still maintains the Bauuer bounce we all know and love. Also set to take on “Attracting Flies” with their own renditions are Jamie Jones and S-Type. You can purchase this Bauuer remix at midnight tonight on Beatport, but Aluna George‘s debut album isn’t expected to hit stores until July 1st.
Yours Truly and Adidas have brought together WeDidIt’s Shlohmo, and Jeremih, to create an original production for their “Songs From Scratch” segment. By now you may have heard Shlohmo’s remix of Jeremih entitled, “Fuck U All The Time,” and I’m sure that had some bearing on the decision to get these two in the studio together.
Based off the ‘making of’ video that aired a little over a week ago, Shlohmo laid down the track first and then the vocals and bars from Jeremih were added. The artwork was commissioned by Saiman Chow and to thicken this plot up a little bit, Shlohmo and Jeremih will be performing together on April 5th and 6th in San Francisco.
Yes everyone, this happened. Let Dillon Francis tell you all about it:
“YUUPPP got to do an OFFICIAL remix for JT’s song Suit & Tie!!!! I’m sooooo fucking happy about the outcome of my remix!!! So here is the stream!! RELEASE DATE IS STILL TBA and don’t start yelling at me because Jay-Z vox aren’t in the remix because the Sony said that I wasnt allowed to…..anyways ENJOY”
