The Finnish teen, Lenno, has given us the green light to premiere one of his secret weapons from last Summer that features the old Temper Trap hit, “Sweet Disposition.” He brings new life to the the familiar vocals by layering them on top of Pryda‘s big room disco jam, “Mighty Love,” which makes for the perfect DJ tool to give your set some variety. If you’re not a DJ, don’t worry, it certainly makes for great listening material. New Yorkers, keep an eye out for Lenno headlining Electric Beach in November. Enjoy.
The surges in popularity of genres and new styles of electronic music bring on countless up-and-coming producers trying to prove their worth, whether jumping on the bandwagon or actually standing out from the crowd. We saw it with the dutch-house craze, the rise of complextro, the birth of moombahton, and now with an EDM-driven revival of “Trap” music. Of course there’s gonna be fathoms of garbage, but there is a silver lining… finding gems of production amidst the masses. Though the recent Trap faze is still young, Miami based Mister Gray has evolved his sound over the years to execute a successful variety of remixes and DJ bootlegs that have seen widespread support from the biggest guns in the industry.
Mister Gray‘s newest work encompasses crowd pleasing bootlegs with a Trap backbone, covering the party dj set on all fronts. Whether for your DJ sets or just party playlist, look no further than the tunes below and the many FREE bootlegs found on MG’s soundcloud!

Atlanta-based bass fiends, Heroes X Villains, have been at the forefront of the ever-growing Trap movement for a while now (Yes, long before you first heard that “Mercy” remix), and they’ve teamed up with LiveMixtapes.com and Trapaholics to create a documentary highlighting the evolution of the genre — from its early stages to its recent explosion as a fusion with electronic music. Along with the documentary, the ATL duo has put together an EP titled Run The Trap, which will see its release the same day as the doc on August 31st. Watch the trailer above and download “Original Choppaz” after the jump. √+Continue Reading
For week number seven, Willy’s giving you one of his most mature and bass-heavy productions yet. “Wild Horses” uses skittering percussion, scrambled samples, haunting vocal stabs… and oh yeah, five thousand tons of bass, to make a sensual banger that evokes a hot summer night spent dancing with that special someone. Grab it and heat up your week!
There aren’t many artists in dance music right now who are consistently putting out as much diverse, quality work as our man Beni is at the moment. His remix work over the last few months has been stellar. He jazzed things up on his remix of “Two Way Street” by Kimbra. His remix of “Friends” by Sneaky Sound System was a jackin’ house remix full of 90s flair. And his remix of “The Edge” by Yuksek took the sound to the deepest, darkest corner of the club. This is all proof of what a masterful maestro of house music Beni is.
Beni’s latest showpiece is his remix of “Trembling Hands” by The Temper Trap. He flips the original on its head, chops up the vocals and turns everything inside out, combining the elements of all his most recent house remixes and making it into something that will indeed leave any dance floor trembling.
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!!
Our boy Henry Steinway, aka Clockwork, aka Big Sleazy (I made that one up), aka RL Grime just uploaded his thugged out version of Pacha On Acid – a gift to his fans for “manufacturing issues with the patches that came with the Grapes EP.” Either way, FREE TRAP HOUSE for us. Don’t stop git it git it.

It takes a babe to blog us into festival season, sometimes. Actress, model and music video muse, Victoria Geil, has this weekend covered for ya. The anxious excitement of the drive out to this magical world on the barren edge of nothingness… the total and unapologetic poolside maxing as the sunshine and liquors flow… the punctuated moments of elation… the epic naps that tie it all together.
It’s all here, ladies and gentlemen: this is Coachella, as told by a babe. If you’re a babe, you’ll love this. If you love babes, you’ll need this.
