The wild personality of “acid punk rapper” Mykki Blanco is getting a run of the trap. Our LA familiar Neo Fresco (Mad Decent/Get Shifty) has caught a hook in MB’s raw vocals on Hazeboogie and created a hypnotizing bootleg with stabs and rolls all the way to the hood. FUN FACT: The original was produced by Sinden for MB’s Cosmic Angel Mixtape!
Bass producer and generally chill bro, Butch Clancy, just ratcheted things up a notch. His weekly track giveaway known as #TrapTuesdays culminates today with the final track on the free-to-download LP. I give Butch a bold move on this one– I am a huge fan of giving away entire albums for free– and offer my suggestion that one eye be kept on ‘ol Butch in the next few months.

Chicago is taking over LA this Friday @ CONTROL… To celebrate our midway homies making the trek out here, BONES has teamed up with Chi-town’s resident hero DJ PHNM for the 98th edition of the dirt, and very dirty one at that. BONES gives you a taste of everything per usual, and PHNM gives you the best of the snare rolls. No more explaining – we shall cut just cut to the chase and provide you with boomin tunes. Enjoy.
To celebrate the 4th day of our GDD advent calendar, we’ve teamed up with Wooha! Records to bring you a huge exclusive from dutch duo Mightyfools.

What does Alex Metric, Aeroplane, and UZ have in common? The next OWSLA release – Ammunition Pt. 2
The London-based Alex Metric saw a massive response earlier in the year for his chord-stabbing anthem ‘Rave Weapon’, gaining widespread support and the attention of Skrillex and his collective label OWSLA. They’ve teamed up together to release the remix EP, boasting three stunning remixes from the Italo maestro Aeroplane, the mysterious UZ, and Dirtybird newcomer Mark Starr – you couldn’t ask for a better trifecta of difference.
*The EP is due out December 3rd worldwide, and also features the original mix plus (2) new originals ‘Prophecies’ and ‘Motion Study’. Check them all out below!
Willy Joy has been hard at work in the studio and the result is finally here – a 15-track mixtape entitled “WILDLIFE”. More an unofficial solo album than just another Trap mix, WILDLIFE is a blistering 45-minute ride through Willy’s new bone-crunching bass and neck-breaking beats, all mixed to perfection by the man himself. Download & tracklisting on next page.
RL Grime has the trillest costume on the block today with his † HALLOWEEN MIX 2012 †, with the GoosebumperRL Stine himself co-signing on a creepy intro for the thing. Haunted-ass trap chopped up with creepy goodies galore… and “CLIQCLIQ- ??????” Huge. I’m trying to get real scared and keeping this on repeat for a couple hours.
One of my favorite groups in the trap music realm, Keys N Krates, have revitalized Zedd‘s once progressive house tune, “Follow You Down,” in bass heavy Southern hip-hop fashion. By taking a few elements from the original track, dropping the BPM, and applying their own originative flare and sound, they’ve successfully crafted a stellar floor filler remix.
Keys N Krates have quite the schedule ahead of them as they will be embarking on a Winter tour starting November 1st running through December 31st. Also, they’ve been working diligently on a new EP that is set to drop in the new year. Listen/Download this remix, see if they’re playing in a city near you, and be on the look out for announcements about their new EP!
