Jordan Bratton may be young, but he’s already managed to get heads turning with his soulful music for the last year. He already got Fabolous to be a part of a remix for his catchy track “Danger”. This time around he’s got Chance the Rapper to help out on his new track, “Prisoner”. It’s an incredibly chill tune that will not only hook in Chance the Rapper fans, but also bring in some new Jordan Bratton admirers. Don’t miss out and check out “Prisoner” below.
It’s been a couple years since Jez Dior first hit the scene with his pretty visuals for debut track “Candles”. Fast forward two projects later, and Jezzy is premiering his latest cut, “The Line”, exclusively with Spotify on their New Music Tuesday playlist. That’s big boy status.
In what may be his most accessible single to date, ”The Line” veers a bit from JD’s self-described grunge rap. The track offers bubbly synths and a choppy guitar riff all over a mean drum kit, plus a catchy hook to boot. The melodic tune has Jez exploring themes of soul-searching as he serenades a female interest.

When PINEO plays shows, heads turn. Not because of his dashingly good looks, but because they recognize every damn song that he remixes. Teamed up with LOEB, they make PINEO & LOEB – cosmic retro funk renegades of the future (if that makes any sense). I’ve gotta admit that I’m a pretty big fanboy when it comes to these guys, they seem to never disapoint!

If you dig this remix, you’d most DEFINITELY love his re-work of Gorillaz, Will Smith, or Tears for Fears. Find them here.
From PINEO himself:
“Bringing back the 90s addicts anthem along with some live guitar played by Matt Stevens (Helical), Jurassic 5 samples and all sorts of crazy sounds. Free download uploaded while we’re off playing some shows in Nepal!”

A friend of mine introduced me to this interesting producer, TWRK, who I had never heard of before. Given the fact that the release is published by Mad Decent Records, I decided to give it a few listens. I honestly wasn’t expecting the track to be so wild – something about the way they harness the unique nature of an a’capella and warp it to the rhythm of an insane block-rocking 808 kick, slightly gives me the shivers.
I feel almost as if I should check myself in to bass addicts anonymous after this one. I think it’s got me hooked.
Highly recommended for anyone looking to turn things up for the weekend – or give into your thirsty Thursday rituals.
Check it out!
This time around, it’s “Enough” and the song is just as catchy as last time. The Chicago-based duo continues their unique production as they blend together genres like hip-hop, pop, and electronic, but they do switch gears a bit with their subject matter. “Enough” talks about that person in your life that you know isn’t right for you, but you just can’t seem to let go of.
Check out the song below and be sure to follow the guys on SoundCloud for a free download!
GANZ is one of those producers that creates the most epic bursts of energy ever to grace my headphones. Released recently on Terrorythm Records, the carefully crafted release sets the bar high for future bass producers – bringing to the table an experimental aesthetic that can’t be touched.
A quote from Terrorythm:
“The E.P. is a three tracker, much like his initial outing with the label. Opening with New Era, GANZ invites you to sit down and take on board what is about to unfold in front of your ears. A summery number ensues, fluttering and bright with some beautiful synth and piano tones. What comes after it is a high energy bass music onslaught, reminding us just what we’ve missed in his absence.
Dino War is unrelenting. It twists and turns through the intro before exploding into a technicolour attack on the senses. Heavy and bright, it is something we’ll all be drawing for in our moment of need for many many sets to come.
Closing out the E.P. is “Trophies” which helps to calm us down just a tad after the rigorous work out we received from Dino War. It’s like a warm down – hard enough to keep us moving, but more relaxed than it’s predecessor on the E.P. A fitting end track to a triumph of a release from GANZ.
We’re really excited to be bringing this to you all and hope you enjoy the music as much as we do here at the label.”
Can’t get enough of these guys – french funk masters the Noisy Freaks are back with another HUGE sound. Carefully crafted into a beauty of a banger, this producer duo are unstoppable with their rhodes-laden sex music. I can see it now – you’ll be cruising off into the night with the sunset in YOUR rearview blasting this smooth groove with your significant other.
The guys have gotten a ton of support from Gramatik in the recent past, it’s not wonder that they’re taking off in such a huge way – 2015 here they come!
Catch the boys on the web:
SLUMBERJACK are one of those inebriating Australian duos that seem to craft seamlessly blended mixes of equal parts emotionally and bass driven music – combined with Elk Road’s silky smooth chord-driven anthems, the guys have remixed Carmada’s Maybe and smashed it out of the park. One word – BANGER.
If you’re a fan of getting down, take one listen to this track and you’ll know what’s up. I’m sure that this tune will be rinsed through and through this coming summer as the outdoor festival party goers get lit up with the sounds of Australia’s best.
Very happy to premiere the latest remix by Bay Area native, Broke For Free. This take on ”Naked As We Came”, original track by Iron and Wine, is absolutely stunning… really, it’s a breath of fresh air. Broke For Free flips this track into a chill-wave, trip-hop dream. Listen below.

Gallant is what RnB needs. He’s a RnB crooner signed to the same record label as Grammy nominated ZHU. Gallant brings genre defying music that will bait you in, and when the vocals drop, you’re hooked. This is the first single off of his upcoming EP in the summer, and “Open Up” is fan-freakin’-tastic.
There are moments in life when you have to drop everything you’re doing and focus on one thing. When Chance The Rapper and his music group The Social Experiment release a new project, I stop what I’m doing and pay attention.
Chance The Rapper is the most common answer I give when people ask me who my favorite artist I’ve discovered through music blogging is. It’s tough to compete with an artist like Sam Smith, who is another frontrunner, and this isn’t an apples to apples comparison because the music they make is so different, but I appreciate Chance for his ability to explore what the meaning of art is. Today’s music video is a fine example: he explores gospel, theater, and big-band jazz influences while maintaining an element of entertainment and catchiness all along (did you see those dance moves?!).
Chance’s portfolio is vast, containing deep, dark songs like “Paranoia,” nostalgic songs like “Wonderful Everyday“, depressing songs like “No Better Blues,” crowd pleasers like a cover of Coldplay’s “Fix You,” and refreshing pick-me-ups like “Everybody’s Something,” and with the latest work from Chance and The Social Experiment, it only looks to be evolving and growing into something more artful and alluring every day.
Shakka just released a new song, “They Dunno Nuttn’”, as part of his new EP, “The Bootlegs”, and I was totally blown away.
Check “They Dunno Nuttn’” Out right here!
Shakka is a name you should know from his collaboration with Wretch 32, “Blackout”, but he is on a path to make a major name for himself with work like this. His voice is totally different from anything I’ve heard in a long time, and the way his rapping and singing comes together over the beat is perfect. The guest verse from Cashtastic is a glove-tight fit for the sound as well.
The rest of “The Bootlegs” EP is incredible as well, specifically “Rollin’ With Elephants”. Do yourself a favor and check it out.
