Hello folks, with Valentines day finally out of the way, and with that, it means all the flower, chocolate, teddy bear pics will stop flooding our social media, and we can get back to life as usual!
And with that being said, here is week #2 for my top picks, Ill attach any DL links if available so you can start playing them out tonight at your local club/event.
As usual, feel free to comment or leave any feedback
1. GIGAMESH- Enjoy (Preview)
I thought id kick this weeks list off with some fun, light hearted warm up vibes…this is a brand new release from mega-producer Gigamesh (https://soundcloud.com/gigamesh) Just released on Beatport, Feb 12th (http://www.beatport.com/search?query=Gigamesh+-+Enjoy) Its got bright synths, classic disco vocals and a groovy driving beat, this is one you just gotta have. A great addition to your opening sets or just a feel good environment. Ill definitely be playing this tune out first chance I get.
2. VALENTINO KHAN- Who You Wit? (Free Download)
“THIS SONG IS STRICTLY 4 THUGZ ONLY. IF U R NOT A THUG PLZ CLOSE UR INTERNET AS IT MAY INFLUENCE U TO DO THINGS THAT R SCANDALOUS & ROWDY IN NATURE. HAPPY VALENTINES DAY AND GOD BLESS.” - VK
…this is a statement from Valentino himself…id have to say he’s pretty dead on with this release. Before finding this, I wasn’t too familiar with VALENTINO KHAN (https://soundcloud.com/valentinokhan), which is quite surprising, considering his credentials. Producing for such multi-platinum artists such as 2 Chains, BoB, and having released EDM bangers through DIM MAK and MAD DECENT. He definitely nailed it with this banger, a must have for any EDM/TRAP set.
3. BRO SAFARI & UFO! – Savage Beauty (PREVIEW)
WOW. I dont normally post and review moombahton tracks (in case your not familiar with the genre: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moombahton) but this track is an absolute BANGER. Nothing id ever play in the club, but i couldnt help but share it.
Produced by EDM super-producer Bro Safari (https://soundcloud.com/brosafari) and UFO! (https://soundcloud.com/UFO55555) this tracked was described as “….interesting blend of influences ranging from Drum and Bass to Hardcore to Moombahton and many things in between….” As soon as i heard that deep bass line i was hooked in.
This can be found on the ‘Moombahton Forever Compilation’ released on T & A Records.
4. ARIANNA ft. PITBULL – Sexy People (HLM Remix) *FREE DOWNLOAD*
HLM (https://soundcloud.com/dj_hlm) just got dropped this official remix to Adrinana and Pitbull’s tune, Sexy People (All Around the World). Definitely moves the track into a much more electro sound. A good top40 remix to drop in the club to get the ladies moving, with a nice build-up and drop to keep the hands up and fellas in it.
5. BAAUER-Harlem Shake (Kid Womp Remix) *FREE DOWNLOAD*
You didnt actually think i was going to end this without a review of the viral phenomenon the Harlem Shake, did you?
Well, I did even better, and tracked down an absolute bass nutty remix of the famed track, definitely going to want to watch your bass levels when this gem of a track drops. With 808 bass all the way through and even a snippet of the popular ‘I aint got time for that’ near the end, this track had banger written all over it.
From the up and coming Trap/EDM producer out of Texas, KID WOMP (https://soundcloud.com/kidwomp), this track delivers all that is to be expected, and more. Keep and eye out for this guy, big things in his future.
I hope you enjoyed this weeks picks, feel free to leave comments and share at your own will!
