Video: DJ Craze sends a message with NEW SLAVES ROUTINE #RealDJing

DJ Craze really cleared the air with this video. ‘DJ’ is a seriously abused term today. Real disc-jockeys are actually really rare and DJ Craze is a dying breed. I got to see him at Ultra in 2013 and he was unreal. This video proves that what most of you are paying money for is somewhat of a rip-off. I think it makes more sense to call them ‘producers’. Well done Craze.

Catch him on Halloween at Pier of Fear x BOO! in NYC. Should be insane and I’m sure he’ll put on for the blood thirsty crowd. See you there! #RealDJing

“Thats like the B-boy in me too. The reason I was good at battling and shit was because of this.When I get pissed off, I want to speak with the turntables and kill it.” – Craze

“Going Like” by De La Bass

While we don’t have a Trap Tuesday, this may be all you need. De La Bass is a trap trio from Paris who just touchdowned in trap city. This song is impressive to say the least. Think you’ll be hearing a lot of it in the future. Artwork is pretty dope too.

Video: “100 Bottles” by Low Pros & Travi$ Scott [A-Trak & Lex Luger]

G.O.O.D. Music golden child and Low Pros from Fool’s Gold released their supernatural video for “100 Bottles” the other day. It’s a weird take on a crazy song but when Travi$ is in the mix you know it’s gonna get strange. Just the breakdown at the end is worth the whole listen of the song. Scott is one of the hottest features around right now but we still don’t have this song.

Low Pros is a duo of A-Trak and Lex Luger. The two released their EP1 back in June. Haven’t listen to it much but it’s worth a listen. iTunes link below.

“One Touch (VIP RMX)” by Baauer & AlunaGeorge [Updated]

UPDATE: Baauer announced that his new album would be hitting the web sometime this year. With his tour with Boyz Noise cancelled, we certainly hope he’s had a lot of time to perfect that shit. He also released the original of “One Touch” and it features “No Flex Zone” gunner Rae Sremmud. Surprised? Like the remix or the original better? Good to see Baauer back in the mix.

Awhile ago, Baauer was featured in Red Bull magazine to explain to his fans what he’s been up to and why we haven’t heard much from him for long periods of time. The “Harlem Shake” phenom has been searching the globe for a uniqueness to his next album. Explained in the article and previewed in the trailer above to his 30 minute documentary, you can see that Baauer is moved on from his YouTube hit.

“One Touch” is the first taste of the debut album we get and with English duo AlunaGeorge. What do you think? A new Baauer?

News: Lil’ Wayne’s “Tha Carter V” Officially Pushed Back – Release Date Unknown

Tha Carter V Lil' Wayne - pumpthebeat.com

Hold up. We knew it was all coming but it’s official now. Young Money president announced that Lil’ Wayne’s ‘last’ album is pushed back. It was supposed to drop today but with lack of news and no pre-order for the LP on iTunes, it was fair to say that this was bound to happen. I still haven’t listened to the singles… eating away at me.

After the jump you can see a tracklist someone uploaded. Looks legit but there’s no “Grindin'”. He had an album listening party tonight but otherwise it’s been relatively quiet for Wayne. I like the move to find a new release date. Remember how many times Tha Carter III was pushed back? Yah. We’ll let you know more when the hear somethin’.

“Make It Work” by Tyga

"Make It Work" by Tyga - pumpthebeat.com

For anyone caught up with hip hop right now, you might be familiar with the shit surrounding Tyga and Young Money. Basically, Tyga came out in an interview with Vibe and said he’s not cool with Drake and Nicki Minaj and YMCMB is really pissing him off. His relationship with Lil’ Wayne is the only thing holding him at bay it seems but for how much longer? Tyga has threatened to leak the album that he’s put so much hard work into.

“Make It Work” is I guess a new single for his upcoming album The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty. It’s speculated as a Drake diss because the two have been quietly beefing. Also, some thought that the reason Drake was so pissed in D.C. is because Tyga’s crew punched his DJ. Video is pretty funny.

The album is set for a November 18th release date but who knows what’s going to happen. TGA: 18th Dynasty is exec. produced by Kanye West but has received minimal attention for what it has potential to be. Maybe all this shit going on will help Tyga…

Release Date: November 18th
