I don't know if Kyle dranks or smokes on that purple stuff, but if you do, you could do WAY WORSE than blasting this one. Happy Birthday, bruh bruh.

Munchi x The Diplomats "Dipset Anthem"

No Comments »


The soundtrack to my life has been the Munchi x Trap-A-Holics Trap Bubbling mixape that Nappy mixed. Shit's just bananas, but until now none of the tracks ahve even been heard outside of random club dates. Today, one of my personal favorites from the project, and possibly the best example of what this project is about, was let go on ClubTapes. Flippin' the mighty "Dipset Anthem", Munchi infuses his Rotterdam Trap appeal to the classic banger. And goddamn does it go in!

Trap Bubbling drops on September 14th - the day the game officially changes.

Pharoahe Monch "Simon Says (Brillz & ETC!ETC! Bootleg)"

No Comments »

You still not up yet? This is the tune to blast. With their massive "Bueller" recently being released, I guess it made sense for Brillz& ETC!ETC! to drop their insane Trap relick of Monch's "Simon Says". They jack the best lines for the molly crowd for this one, and really Trap Rave it out. Yes, I know Filthy Disco dropped his remix of the same tune last month, but this one is nutso for different reasons.

Big batch of dubstep for the early morning crew. The "Pour Your Love" remix EP is out now, and this one got the freebie for an e-mail treatment the other day. This is one of those tracks where, if it got spun in the club, the MC would immediately hit the FOR THE LADIES button on the mic and stop rhyming. Not sure who Taiki and Nulight are, but I digs this. Need more, pls.

Caught In The Middle of A 3-Way Mix: DJ Cheeba, DJ Moneyshot & DJ Food

Read more » | No Comments »

DJ Cheeba, DJ Moneyshot and DJ Food did something magical for this week's Solid Steel show: "Solid Steel in association with Serato (31st August) 3 years ago Solid Steel DJs Cheeba, Moneyshot and Food had the idea of collaborating on a version of the Beastie Boys‘ ‘Paul’s Boutique’ album made entirely from the original sample sources, shortly after Moneyshot aired his mix of their ‘Check Your Head’ album in the same way.

Finally the result is here, titled ‘Caught In The Middle Of A 3-Way Mix’ - each of them have taken a third of the album to work on and combined their efforts into a mix that will make you hear it in a new way. Aside from the original sample sources they’ve included commentary from the Beasties, vintage interviews, demo versions and much more.

The mix was over half way completed when they heard the tragic news of MCA‘s death in May so the impetus to finish it was instantly doubled and new meaning given to the project. It goes without saying that this is also a tribute to Adam Yauch and the legacy he left behind and we hope it will be embraced by Beastie fans around the globe."

Wickaman & RV "Sound Clash"

No Comments »

This one sounds like it got dropped during last night's final 1Xtra D&B Show from Bailey (which I'll be posting once I get links - big up Bailey), and this is release #2 on Ram's latest offshoot, ProgRAM. Wickaman has been coming into his own, after first dropping bits with J Majik and the Infrared crew. This cut with RV? The bass and drums remind me of the Dope Dragon flavors, but he adds some fly elements that really take this into a different place. Works well on the floor, I'd imagine, but can also be grooved to in your armchair. And really, that's the point, right? Catch this one on the 17th of September.

A Good Clean Fight symbolizes a lot, all at once.

I've got a feeling you guys are still sleeping. Say no more. I'll take a minute while you discover ACCRO's Use My Music. You done now? Bet. This shit righ there? Smashing. As I explained last night, the best shit about proper EDM remixes is when you get something that's dumb familiar in your life and turn it on it's head. Flippin' a classic like Hov's "Who You Wit" isn't easy, but this is how you do it. Taking the best elements of the original and fattening it up with Trap aesthetics (along with some seriously huge drums), ACCRO threw this one right in the system and churned out a beast. DJs, you should know what to do with tunes like this - unsuspecting crowds will NOT be ready for it!

Loadstar's the future, you see, and when you're The Future (notice the capitals), you can pull things off like looping a seductive woman singing "midnight" into a hypnotic DnB cookie. Look for this one to drop next week, via Asylum.

And the latest clip from Mala In Cuba, we find Mala perfectly blending the Cuban flavor in a dubwise cookie. Deep bass, seductive vocals and that throwback DUB echo chamber shit? Too heavy. This is taken from the limited vinyl boxset, which includes 4 x 180g vinyl (which if you purchase you get a FREE download code with bonus tracks). Mala's work on this is sounding exactly like it should.

Benja Styles Presents Beyond The Remix

One of the first DJs I've seen getting steam purely off his remix game was the homey Benja Styles. It just makes sense that he compiles his work into this project, which is hosted by DJ Felli Fel,Clinton Sparks & DJ NoPhrillz. Benja likes to make his remixes anthemic, bringing in dope MCs that he knows (like Freeway, Tek, Young Chris, Reef the Lost Cauze, Jakk Frost, Rich Quick, E Ness and Chill Moody and many more), and you can chart his progress here, remixing hits and getting airplay both locally and internationally. Dope shit to rock to.

WASTEMAN! This is why I fucks with Trap. Trap does the same that Dubstep did - it takes shit that I truly embraced and throws it against this whole other sound, somehow making me appreciate both sounds AT THE SAME DAMN TIME. I loved the original cut from Redlight, and I believe Skream had a blend that he'd draw, but Filthy Disco straight Trap'd the fuck out of Dynamite's vocals. Need more like this, definitely. Don't be scared of the Trap - shit's not going ANYWHERE!
