“All I Want (Manila Killa Remix)” by Dawn Golden

 Manila Killa has been putting in work. He has really come into his own as a producer and his tracks are always extremely polished and stylistically unique. He’s also been busy with his collective, Moving Castle, which he founded with a few other producers including frequent collaborator AO Beats. His newest remix of Dawn Golden’s “All I Want” showcases the original track’s poignant lyrics before dropping into a soothing, melodic tropical house breakdown. I had the pleasure of meeting Manila this past Saturday on his 21st birthday, and the kid is as nice as his beats. Enjoy this one and show him some love on Facebook to grab the free download.

“Often (Kygo Remix)” by The Weeknd

Kygo-Pumpthebeat.com

22 year old producer Kygo from Norway has BLOWN up in the past year! By creating his own tropical, chill, vibes and  a completely new genre, his fan base has grown to over 400,000 fans in over a year. Kygo remixes the right songs and he does it the right away. The first Kygo track I heard was his Ed Sheeran “I See Fire” remix. Instantly, I knew he was unique and going to be huge. His live sets contain extremely chill music like this “Crazy” cover and it’ll be a show unlike any you have experienced. This The Weeknd remix demonstrates Kygo’s different sound and adds a great twist to “Often.” Kygo’s remixes continue to impress me!

Release Date: July 28, 2014

To all of you Dave Edwards fans out there, he is finally back with his latest remix to Chris Brown’s “Loyal.” I’ve heard plenty of remixes to this track, but this one easily tops them all. Here the NYC-based producer took the original and turned it into a summery masterpiece by giving it a lovely tropical, electro-pop sound. This guy never seems to disappoint, so be sure to check out more from him via his SoundCloud.

Review: Amtrac @ Slake, NYC (July 26th)

SLAKE-amtrac

This past Saturday in NYC the recently opened Slake nightclub welcomed deep house maestro Amtrac to headline its main room. Previously known as The Wall, the newly branded Slake re-opened its doors earlier this year and has curated a really strong array of acts spanning multiple genres and popularity levels during its promotional run this summer. The club has multiple levels and stages, and is kind of like a less congested version of Webster Hall. The vibe is always super dope and the crowd is generally really knowledgeable about the acts, but without being pretentious, which is always refreshing.

Review: Adventure Club @ Governor’s Island & Pacha, NYC (July 26)

AC-Pumpthebeat.com

Yesterday, some friends and I got the chance to chill with and see Adventure Club perform at Governor’s Island and the after party at Pacha. Being from the Chicago area, I get the chance to attend extremely cool events like Lollapalooza, Spring Awakening, etc. Having said that, Governor’s Island is definitely my favorite venue I’ve attended. You see the Statue of Liberty on the ferry ride over and the island itself is something special. The sand leading up to the tent gives you beach vibes and the NYC skyline is glowing past the water. Anyone who lives in the area should attend a show at this venue on the water.

WKND MZK – “Voyager”

Voyager - pumpthebeat.com

While Jay is all over the chillest songs on the face of this planet, I still got a few that I think you all would like to hear. While these don’t follow a single theme, I see them more as a short story and that includes the way I outline them and the name of the playlist – “Voyager”. Press play and see if you like where they take you. I always like the way music is cerebral and can make you think of all kinds of themes with a single sound or lyric. 3…2…1

Thank God for this playlist feature right? Been doing these for awhile and hopefully now it will make things a lot easier. If you like a song, make sure to check out the artists SoundCloud and even similar artists. I could get lost in SoundCloud for days and find a lot of good music. This is our voyage for now.
