kasbo time pumpthebeat.com

19 year old producer Kasbo has released an absolute masterpiece via the Hegemon artist collective. As he leads you through his track with his stand-out melody, you’re also invited by warm, but impactful chords to add some extra energy. Shorne Markley, founder of Hegemon, had this to say:

It is hard to imagine more of a masterpiece than our first release with Kasbo and his single “Something Sad” (which will forever be one of my favorite songs ever composed). But the follow up to that quintessential lullaby is his collaboration with Father Dude, and body of perfection come to been known as ‘Time’.

The old school percussions and grungy drops are back. Here’s JAUZ’s brand new track entitled “Deeper Love,” which was debuted by Danny Howard this past weekend.

The soulful vocals will take you back to a more nostalgic deeper house vibe, but don’t get too comfortable, as JAUZ, as he’s well known for, takes you for a ride with his bass-y wobbles. Recent festival/concert-goers will also probably be familiar with this track as well.

Documentary: “Momentum”


After the recent release of the trailer for “We Are Your Friends,” an upcoming film that stars Zac Efron as an aspiring DJ, the dance community has been up in arms about the movie’s inaccurate portrayal of what it actually takes to make it as an up and comer in the industry, and many well known producers and their fans have been vocal about their disapproval.  This reaction has also shed light on an opportunity to correctly tell the story of “making it” in the scene, an opportunity that NYC based production company Salt Pond Creative has seized with the upcoming release of a brand new TV series called “Momentum.”  The series follows a construction worker from New Jersey who quickly transitions from a bedroom producer to an overnight success, and focuses on the trials and tribulations of dealing with rapid fame and recognition in the NYC music landscape.  The show’s creator and lead role Michael C. Morello explains: “Imagine Entourage but grittier in tone, set in NYC instead of LA, and instead of the entertainment business, this series is all about the music business, which is a lot different today than it was even just a few years ago.  The show offers an intimate look inside the industry, from the world of the artist, to the manager, to the agent, to the label heads; a part of the industry most EDM enthusiasts don’t ever get to see.”

So, one of my favorite renditions of Skrillex, Diplo, and Justin Bieber’s “Where Are Ü Now” got an incredible remix from Cignature. The cover by Ember Island has a light, airy feel to it to begin with, but Cignature adds some extra energy to the mix to create the perfect summer tune. If you’re looking for that fun track for that perfect playlist to close off your summer, this should definitely be at the top of your list.

“R.I.P 2 My Youth” by The Neighbourhood

The Neighbourhood is back with a fresh new single off their forthcoming album.

The band’s second album, Wiped Out! will be released October 30th, 2015. R.I.P 2 My Youth is the final track on the album. It holds the NBHD’s classic genre blend between subtle hip-hop and indie-electro beats combined with Jesse Rutherford’s distinctive vocals.

Rutherford explains in a recent interview with KROQ that this song is a reflection of all the opportunities the band has had within the past few years and “growing up’s” incumbent measures. It definitely remains true to The Neighbourhood’s roots by incorporating a catchy tune with hints of despairing lyrics. This song for sure sets the tone for their sophomore album.

Release Date: August 20, 2015
