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.
Mykki Blanco is far from your average MC, but damn he’s been putting out some fire tracks in the past 6 months. Teaming up with producers like Brenmar, Sinden, Flosstradamus, and Matrixxman, Mykki takes spacey bass beats and adds some incredible, unique raps on top. Mykki and Matrixxman have teamed up once again for the latest track, ‘Feeling Special,’ which definitely carries on from where their last collaboration, ‘Haze.Boogie.Life,’ left off. Mykki just kicked off a massive tour last night here in LA, so check the track below and get the full tour schedule after the jump. √+
“Grammy nominated french producer DJ Snake brings Mad Decent/Jeffree’s two huge tracks that are so big it is officially their first Double A-Side release. The first track “Bird Machine” featuring Alesia packs huge 808′s and an ever evolving bird whistle as the lead synth. Snake & Alesia have created an anthem that has been play’d out by superstar DJs Dillon Francis, Diplo,Baauer, Flosstradamus and many more! Snake follows up “Bird Machine” with “Together” an epic hardstyle homage with the wildest trap drop we’ve heard in a while.” Grab them both below!
2013 is without a doubt Trouble & Bass’ year. The Brooklyn-based label and DJ collective has so many upcoming releases and is making so many big moves that I had to chat with Luca Venezia of Drop The Lime fame and founder of the dark creative collective to make sure I had everything straight. And after witnessing the face melting awesomeness at their BASS CLASH event with Mixpak a few weeks ago, I’ve gotta say that these dark Dons are leaders in their field and definitely ones to watch.
Dillon Francis kicks off his first headline tour, Wet and Reckless, this evening at the sold out Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco along with buzzing Trappers, Flosstradamus. A major milestone for Dillon, this 26-date tour spanning 3 months should solidify his spot amongst the most popular of American DJs. Coinciding with the tour kickoff today is the release of the hilarious new music video for “Masta Blasta (The Rebirth)” — the recent re-do of one of Dillon’s breakout originals that has been re-upped with a healthy amount of bass and fit for your growing Trap playlist. Have a watch and read on for all dates of the Wet and Reckless Tour. We’ll be giving away some tickets to multiple tour dates next week.Continue Reading
