“I Know” by Mayo (Prod. by Dpat)

On point intro and some great production lay out the foundation for Mayo to come through on this new song called “I Know”. Can’t talk enough about how far this kid has come. Great to see. We’ve been covering him for awhile now.

You may not realize it but Mayo’s been working with some dope producers like Dpat and Mr. Carmack. Check out his SoundCloud to see what he’s been working on!

WKND MZK: “This Idea”

This Idea WKND MZK - pumpthebeat.com

Going on six I think. Ever since Voyager the story has been very different. This playlist is little softer and maybe a bit more stimulating. While these are most of the songs I’m listening to, I hope you all find the same tranquility as I do.

Best part about this playlist is you can take one artist and dig into their SoundCloud and get lost within their music for hours. I stirred away from the largely played songs and pulled a lot of these from mixes and random sources. Hope they bring you to this idea.

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

Awhile ago, Baauer was featured in RedBull magazine to explain to his fancies 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?

Event: Future Music Festival [Touring Austrailia - Summer 2015]

Future Music Festival - pumpthebeat.com

Now before you get mad that I’m covering an event all the way across the Pacific, chill. It’s all relative and who knows, maybe you’re planning to go abroad or just saying fuck it and end up over there next summer. Basically, if you are ‘down under’. Go to one of these shows. And that’s the part that’s unique; this festival tours nationwide!

Future Music Festival landed tons of great names for the first round of their line-up release. Not only are there some great headliners, but I think the gems are in the smaller print. Artists like Gorgon City, Klingande, and Robin Schulz should be a treat to see. Obviously Australia is going to swarm to these shows to see Drake for the first time but for just a piece of their line-up, this is pretty impressive.

Lots of love to the native artists too. Make sure to skim their website for all the info such as dates and locations. Watch the announcement video here.

Video: Summer Set Festival 2014 Aftermovie

While Western Wisconsin may not strike you as party central, from what I can see, I might have second thoughts on what I was doing this past summer. Summer Set Music & Camping Festival is fairly new to the music scene. Judging by the aftermovie, there was no short supply of fun. Thought the video provided some good music and the first half is just all groove. Check it out and if you’re in the area next year, might be a good choice. The line-up was serious.

Summer Set will be back for 2015 and you can do a survey to enter to win 4 passes to next year here.

“Outside” by Calvin Harris & Ellie Goulding

Calvin Harris blessed us again with another crazy release. Kind of scared he’ll release the entire album at this rate. There’s already at least five or so singles out with “Under Control”, “Summer”, “Blame”, “Burnin'”, and the latest, “Slow Acid”. His last album seemed to have some hidden gems so we’ll see what he leaves us with.

“I Need Your Love” brought these two together and seemed flawless to the world. But do these two songs sound too similar? Album is released on November 4th and should be impressive. Until then, here’s “Outside”!

Video: “Tuesday Remix” by iLoveMakonnen & Drake + “How About Now” by Drake

Drake’s been busy lately. I really couldn’t tell you what he was thinking in Kentucky the other night but musically, he’s all there. His newest signee, iLoveMakonnen, has one of the hottest songs out anywhere and here’s the video for it. Sporting the entire OVO crew and real life, get the club goin’ up.

iLoveMakonnen is a weird kid but I think Drake will help his music evolve. That doll creeps me out tho. Oh, and a new song from Drizzy called “How About Now” leaked. Not sure if it’s a new song from his album or a track cut from Nothing Was The Same. 

Recently, The Weeknd‘s newest singles both got tied up in remixes that I thought you all should hear. Not all that great but you really can’t do much better than The Weekend on his own. Ty Dolla $ign’s verse in the “King Of The Fall Remix” is gold but the rest definitely get’s the skip button. We need more Abel.
