PumpTheBeat.com Presents: Chill Vibes Vol. 16


Chill Vibes is still going strong, and we’re already in January. Soon enough, we’ll be able to hang out in the sun; but until then, these playlists will have to hold us over.

For me, this playlist is one of my favorites I’ve made so far. In terms of artists, we have a stronger focus on the up-and-coming producers like TKDJS, Sailors, Lenno, and Les Loups. If you like the track, head over to SoundCloud to “Like” and “Repost.” Again, thank you guys for all the support!

“No Type (Bloodtone Remix)” by Rae Sremmurd

Rae Sremmurd - No Type (Bloodtone Remix) PumpTheBeat.com

The release of  the “No Type” remixes are trending at full force. Bloodtone has taken the track and spun it around with their own flare to make a electro-house rendition full of heavy bass and growling electro synths. This high energy remix will definitely amp things up in any set.

“Fresh Static Snow (Sweekuh Remix)” by Porter Robinson

Porter Robinson - Fresh Static Snow (Sweekuh Remix) PumpTheBeat.com

Unlike Sweekuh’s usual remixes, he takes a slightly different approach on this one. Since he attended Porter Robinson’s Worlds tour live, he was blown away by the atmosphere that Porter Robinson was able to create with his music.

As a response, this remix to “Fresh Static Snow” was born. A heavier, more aggressive sound definitely caters to a different Sweekuh fan base. The new remix also highlights Sweekuh’s talents as a producer and his versatility in sound.

“G.O.M.D. (GLD & Dapp Refix)” by J. Cole

J. Cole is one of my favorite rappers in the game right now. His latest album, 2014 Forest Hills Drive, was the top Hip-Hop album of the year and was significantly more successful than even Taylor Swift’s latest release. Cole responded to this impressive release with the following tweet:

The #’s are humbling. It’s a win for all artists and fans and a clear message to the industry. No singles no features. Stop serving trash.

Dapp and GLD, two upcoming Trap producers, have refixed “G.O.M.D.” and followed Cole’s words. This song goes hard. It flips between heavy Trap and festival-inspired Twerk music to combine for a kick-ass song perfect for a party, a concert, or even the car ride there. Keep an eye out for GLD & Dapp if they keep releasing bangers like this!

“GAS” by Wizard & Ayepee

Most of the time I try to find new music that shows the producer’s talent via a variety of sounds, experimental sounds, and/or a unique sound. Gas, however is a remix of the huge single “Gas Pedal” that isn’t terribly unique or genre-breaking. Where it lacks in originality, it makes up for in plain good music. This track turns up from the beginning – if you need a song that will grab a crowd and get them moving, look no further. As soon as you hear Iamsu! say ‘gas’, ladies will soon follow to the dancefloor and get to werk.

If this beat isn’t quite your style, don’t worry, this is just the title track from Wizard & Ayepee‘s collaborative EP: “GAS”. It’s available for “Name Your Price” on Bandcamp so definitely give the bass-heavy compilation a listen. Oh and if that wasn’t enough, Wizard will be releasing another EP later this month!

Here’s a snippet mix of what GAS has to offer:

“Lasers” by Jimi Frew
