HAPPY TUESDAY FOLKS!
Its good to be back offering up some prime cuts for all of ya!
Been a fun, and exhausting weekend…
Started off @ Lexington Social House in Hollywood, warming up for DJ MICHAELIS.
Had a chance to rinse a few new remix’s I stumbled on, some of which are featured in this weeks picks and some fun favorites as well….
1. DJ FELLI FEL- Reason to Hate (Feat. Ne-Yo, Tyga & Wiz Khalifa)
Release date: April 23rd on I-Tunes.
I had the pleasure of meeting Felli Fel (http://www.djfellifel.com/) in the dj booth at Supperclub Hollywood for ‘Boom Boom Saturdays’, and he was one of the coolest dudes in the booth, and I must say that he deserves for this track to blow up the way I predict it will.
This not yet released (May 23) track is definitely geared for the club/radio dj’s and is def going to be in heavy rotation in my dj sets. It carries a very catchy hook from Ne-Yo and features 2 of Hip Hops biggest players in the game at the moment, Tyga, and Wiz Khalifa, which gives it some serious street credibility. Keep an eye out for this release and cop it on I-Tunes May 23!
2. TRINIDAD JAMES x DJ SNAKE- All Bird Everything (Grandtheft Edit) | FREE DOWNLOAD |
Im a big fan of the original ALL GOLD EVERYTHING by TRINIDAD JAMES, so naturally i was interested to giving this oddly titled bootleg/mashup a listen…..and I was pleasantly surprised.
It starts off with an accapella ‘Popped a Molly i’m Sweatin!’, great for scratching in, and with a trap-style snare roll, drops into DJ Snakes ‘Bird Machine’ (MAD DECENT) with the Trinidad acapella, and in some strange way it works! Free download available.
3. BINGO PLAYERS ft. 2 CHAINZ- Rattle (Sexy Lady) | FREE DOWNLOAD |
Off the bat, this seems to be a disaster in the making, but after a curious listen, with an attempt at an open mind, I liked it.
2 CHAINZ spits it over BING PLAYERS ‘Rattle’ and manages to turn an EDM hit into a Top40 club jam, Im imaging this getting a few spins at the club.
4. MACKLEMORE- Cant Hold Us (Dancefloor Junkies Trap Remix) | FREE DOWNLOAD |
This track was released (unofficially) 5 minutes ago. Macklemore’s ‘Cant Hold Us’ as you already know, is hot single at the moment, and DANCFLOOR JUNKIES [https://soundcloud.com/dancefloorjunkies] took full advantage and manufactured this Trap remix, and I might add, that its done quite well and in good taste, still maintaining the original ‘feel’ of the original, while giving it a tough edge and massive drop as expected.
5. EMP DASME- Had a Dream (Produced by Brenmar)
‘I HAD A DREAM I WAS HELLA COOL…‘
So, I was on the dig for some good opening tracks for an upcoming gig and stumbled upon this cat BRENMAR ‘s Soundcloud page [https://soundcloud.com/brenmar] and was stuck for a good 30 minutes just browsing through some of his originals and remix’s, alot of really eclectic sounds going on here, very refreshing from the norm….and then I found this buried gem.
Originally released on a Fools Gold Compilation ‘LOOSIES’ [https://soundcloud.com/foolsgoldrecs/sets/fools-gold-presents-loosies] , with the production, lyrical originality, catchy hook, addictive bassline and dark undertone, I was sold.
