Jaxtella - Rainy Dayz


With the Indian Summer finally breaking over here on the East Coast, Jaxtella returns with a massive boost of liquid drum & bass for your speakerboxes.

The Trenton-based DJ is still working through months of dnb releases, and turning them into sixty-plus minute rinseouts. This pack is from the month of August, and includes a number of Degs "sprayouts" from his impressive Hospital mixtape, as well as bits from Friction, Pola & Bryson, Danny Byrd, Villem & McLeod, Djah, and more.

For those of you looking to get your weekend off on the good food, Jax's got you covered. Stream and download this mix below, and be sure to check out that full tracklist.

A Boogie ft Davido "Way Too Fly (Benja Styles "KING OF ROCK" Remix)"


Benja Styles always comes correct with his blends. His latest remix finds a way to take A Boogie's "Way Too Fly" and throw it over Run DMC's "King Of Rock," which sounds like it shouldn't work, but turns out to be a serious banger. Stream and download the clean version below; just make sure you have fire extinguishers on hand for the fire that'll be flying out of your speakers.

Reckonize Real & Guilty Simpson ft. Georgia Anne Muldrow "Got Your Back"


The other day at work, heads were talking about loyalty and the lack thereof these days. Listening to this Reckonize Real & Guilty Simpson track from their forthcoming album Carved From Stone, I think back to that convo. Something about getting older and trying to be a better man, themes like being loyal and protecting your day ones get deeper. Press play on this one down below if you don't know what I'm talking about.

DJ Ends Serves Up Some Piping Hot 'Kraut Juke'


I couldn't tell you any real facts about Germany, especially German music. I mean, Kraftwerk is German, and they are the shit, so maybe I just lied on myself. Either way, Munich's DJ Ends recently linked up with District160 to release Kraut Juke, which does exactly as it says on the tin. Ends took a number of German songs and gave them a 160 BPM jukeout. Don't ask me to identify any of the original tracks. Just press play and turn up to these.

You can download this five-track release via District160's Bandcamp, and stream it in full down below.

Zack Fox "Square Up (Ase Manual Remix)"


If you're not up on Zack Fox, your social media timelines are hella dry. Over the last month or so, he's been killing it with his #squareupchallenge, so much so that he dropped a whole Kenny Beats-produced track. A viral moment wouldn't be authentic if it didn't get the Jersey Club treatment, so shouts out to Ase Manual for being quick to the draw with his new "Square Up" remix. Stream and download that bad boy below, via Bandcamp.

J.Lately "Fun's Up"


The guy J.Lately's always down for some fun, and even though the fall's creeping in for most of us (weather-wise), J's latest Space Cadet-produced single "Fun's Up" is, in his words, "a reminder to cherish the good times and keep the party rolling." Learn the words now, as we imagine he'll be performing this during his next tour.

Small Professor Returns With Some 'Free Jawns'


Longtime readers of this site should be up on Small Professor. He's worked with some of our favorite emcees—literally everyone from Zilla Rocca to Guilty Simpson—but some of our favorite releases from the producer are in his Jawns series. His latest, Free Jawns (which was premiered over on Passion of the Weiss), is a project he worked on while working on his forthcoming LP, and is proof positive that he's just as capable of making cohesive songs sans rappers than he is as giving these emcees fire instrumentals.

Seven songs, available for the low price of $4. Stream below, cop via Bandcamp.

DJ Chap Blends All of the Genres In New Release, 'El Mundo Es Tuyo'


Feels like it's been a minute since we've heard from DJ Chap, but realistically, we rocked to Saint Elsewhere back in May. Since then, his Baile Furioso EP has been getting some love, and this week he also dropped El Mundo Es Tuyo. A "mixtape" featuring material he's made over the last year or so, Chap says the project was inspired by "r&b, jungle, ambient music and progressive rock." If you know what time it is with Chap, that still doesn't dive into the meat of this project.

What's wild is, I had just been asking about the lack of bootleg dance remixes, but then realized that they just hide in footwork releases, under different names. Not only does Chap flip Kanye West and Lil Pump's "I Love It" on this release, to this hypnotic SWV rework that I forgot I'd been sitting on for a WHILE.

Releases like these make me remember why I love when capable producers start to question what's been given to us, putting their own spin on these gems. You can stream El Mundo Es Tuyo down below, and cop it over on Bandcamp.
