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.

Previous Mix: It’s Very Simple

“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?

Mix: “Artist of TheFuture” by MAKJ

TheFuture.fm is a platform that allows for the streaming of DJ mixes and live sets. Kind of like a SoundCloud but just dedicated to mixes.

Recently, TheFuture.fm has partnered with various DJs to create their “Artist of TheFuture” series. This mix is curated by an artist who rose to stardom through his innovative mashups. MAKJ now has released numerous tracks to establish himself as a big-room artist. The mix features throwback tracks all throughout. Something that’s definitely characteristic of MAKJ.

Video: “Unholy” by Wolfgang Gartner ft. Bobby Saint [Lyric Video]

Wolfgang Gartner is a figure that has led the dance music scene all around the globe. If you’re familiar with his tracks, he usually favors electro sounds and is a huge fan of intricate layering and melodies.

When it comes to music production, Wolfgang Gartner is at the top of his game. “Unholy” is a whole new sound that fans have yet to hear from Gartner. Accompanying this nu-disco track, we get the soulful vocals of Bobby Saint. Up-beat and full of life. This track will definitely get you going during any time of the day.

“Crank” by Kayzo x Seek N Destroy

Yep, Kayzo’s on a producing rampage; and he’s doing big things. The main theme for his tracks is obviously a heavier, darker feel. That’s what he tends to lean towards. Recently, he came out with his “No Scrubs” remix, which had a completely different kind of feel.

With “Crank” a collaboration with Seek N Destroy, we go back to his darker roots. More of an electro track, but the layered percussions definitely surprised me. Kayzo’s trying to be different, and it’s definitely receiving a ton of love.

“Summertime” Video by Dr!ve & DJ Bowser


It’s getting cold… I personally love this slightly chilly-and-breezy, slightly warm-and-beautiful season that is Autumn.

However, I am definitely not looking forward to sub-zero temps and freezing rain. Hopefully this upbeat track and video for Summertime gets us all through this Winter season. With a catchy guitar loop, funky bass-line, and Reggae-esque vocals; this song is sure to keep you warm for a while.

Free download on this one thanks to Dr!ve & DJ Bowser.
