I’m going to preface this with a “this is not for everyone” label. If you like turning down for what, getting turnt, doing hoodrat things, crumping, or enjoy the occasional dubstep-trap music, then this is for you! Fortunate enough for me, I enjoy one of the above, but we’ll keep that our little secret on which one.
Yeah, not what I expected.
You know the drill. Another week, another seamless playlist for you to get down to this weekend. Press play below and get the party started.
It must be fall. Football’s back. College football’s back. So, whether you’re pregaming for your collegiate affiliate or tailgating for your city’s squad this weekend, do yourself a favor and use this playlist to get thangs started.

Collin McLoughlin continues to impress with another track off of his upcoming EP, Tears of Tempo. He flexes his newly mastered production skills of the wop, and drops in his latest, One Desire. Peep the video below and continue to check back every week for a new leak off of his EP!

It’s Sunday morning. I have awoken to a picture that Arjun sent me. Most likely a future #TapeTuesday artwork. Seemed cool. That stuff usually is cool. Hopefully one day he’ll use a picture I took. I also have a new thing were I have to always talk about Arjun. Idk, things have gotten kind of weird between us lately. If only you saw our conversations on Facebook.
Despite the weirdness in our relationship, I do imagine going on a trippy journey with Arjun while this song plays in the background. Maybe tripping on acid with Chance The Rapper. Flying through the air on our dragons, tearing shit up (like we were Khalisi or something), and as the beat drops, walking away dramatically and high fiving each other with a gleam in both of our eyes and Chance giving us his signature IGH! Maybe it’s just me, but he probably feels the same way too. Clearly I’m trying to hard in these posts.
Mt. Eden’s Airwalker is exactly what you need for your nighttime adventures. Do not pass this one up, ladies and gents. Drive to this. Chill to this. Relax to this. This is your journey. The possibilities are endless!
I’ve also attached the new EP from Mt. Eden
What’s a better way to celebrate The Big Dance this weekend than, well, dancing big? Ball till ya fall.
I believe that dance communicates man’s deepest, highest and most truly spiritual thoughts and emotions far better than words, spoken or written.
So, I finally realized the beauty of using sets on SoundCloud. This format will make it waaay easier for you guys to stream Best Five Dance from now on. I mean, just press play once and it’s game over.
Opportunity dances with those already on the dance floor.

Recently, Just Blaze and Baauer teamed up to drop the massive, dubby “Higher.” Two of the most influential producers in their respective genres, this track had big expectations and, in my opinion, delivered. It’s interesting seeing Just Blaze dabble in the heavier electronic scene–only one more sign that hip hop is moving that direction.
The two spoke to Pitchfork about the collaboration, which you can see below. I think Baauer really sums up the effect of the collaboration in that Just Blaze comes at it with a mastery in beatmaking, and Baauer comes at it with a unique catalog of sound. The combination of the two is very, very dope, and the video and the full song can both be streamed below.
Do the d-a-n-c-e. Stick to the b-e-a-t. Just easy as a-b-c. Do the dance, do the dance!
1. VOODOO FARM – I Don’t Know Why
2. Tinashe – Stargazing (Sammy Bananas Remix)
3. Flux Pavilion – OneTwoThree (Make Your Body Wanna)
4. Marina and the Diamonds – Lies (Zeds Dead Remix)
5. Juicy J – Bandz A Make Her Dance (B.Dolla Remix)
So big man Dusty already included this as one of the “Five Best Dance Songs of the Week,” but I wanted to highlight it a little more because I like Aylen‘s work and this song is too dope to go unnoticed.
This little diddy is a remix of one of my favorite Zedd songs, “Clarity.” I love the combination of the grimy bass Aylen uses and the high pitched vocals of Foxes. This is a straight up jam with enough accessibility to be a party song and enough filth to be a rave song.
Aylen kills it per usual, really complementing the original by giving it a slightly different pace and a very different feel.
Throw it down this weekend with Aylen’s help.
