WKND MZK: “It’s Very Simple”

"It's very simple" - pumpthebeat.com

This week was a difficult one in finding the right songs to fill this playlist. Hopefully you all find use of these. Seems like the line drawn between good music and music that is down right horrible is becoming more and more blurred these days. But what makes music ‘good’ be definition. That, my friend, is not set something set in stone.

Dillon Francis released his remix to “Some Chords” yesterday that will be on deadmau5 5 Years of Mau5 remix album coming soon. Make sure you check out the crazy “Work” remix. Pure festival shit. Should not have overlooked that Minnesota remix. Beyond that, it’s all over the place. Love the weekend.


Documentary: “808” [Trailer - Coming 2015]

You Know Films and Atlantic Records are putting together an interesting film about the influential 808 drum machine. The Roland TR-808 is a programmable drum instrument that changed the face of music all around the world. With such a huge impact on all types of music, you know the producers had to recruit some serious talent to appear in the film. Get ready to see legends like Phil Collins, Fatboy Slim, Rick Rubin, Questlove, Diplo and more talk about the distinct sound of this instrument.

The film is set for sometime 2015 and it looks like a soundtrack will accompany it too.

“Making a documentary about a drum machine, a piece of electronic equipment, is an interesting challenge. It has no voice of its own, so as a protagonist it’s rather difficult to mold a story around. 808 has really been a journey of discovery for me. One that led myself and the team to meet over 50 musicians and artists from all around the world, hearing their personal stories about the 808 and the music they created using its iconic sounds. Those artists and musicians are the real protagonists of the film and the 808, in the hands of our contributors, would change music forever.” – Director, Alexander Dunn

Video: “Paradise” by Big Sean

It’s obvious now that Big Sean has had a change of heart. After a heartbreaking end to his relationship with Glee star, Naya Rivera, Big Sean signed a huge deal with Roc Nation released four new songs on an EP that points to signs of resentment towards his ex.

Since then, the Detroit rapper has been seen hanging with Ariana Grande. So how broken up can he really be? Well, just look at this new photo filter feature he released today along with this video above. You be the judge.

“Paradise” will serve as the intro to Mike Will Made It’s Ransom mixtape. Coming soon.

EP: “STN MTN / KAUAI” by Childish Gambino [Update: Secret "3005" Remix Revealed]

KAUAI - Childish Gambino - pumpthebeat.com

A lot of you by now have probably been hearing about Childish Gambino‘s new releases. Here’s what you need to know. STN MTN is another Gangsta Grillz mixtape from DJ Drama and is strictly street shit. Lots of covers of songs and stuff but I thought the highlight was the beat on the first track. After that, ehh.

On a different note, Childish Gambino shows us his alter ego and releases KAUAIIt’s a short EP that you can grab on iTunes that shows off Gambino’s brighter side. All the proceeds are going to help keep the Hawaiian Island of Kauai clean and to give money to start an organization that requires cops to wear vests that have a camera and a microphone attached to them in wake of the events in Ferguson, MI. They are both the same project but also stand alone. Gambino is certainly one talented dude. Below you can find streams of each.

After hinting about how to figure out the secret song, people on Reddit put together instrumentals and acapella vocals to create the secret song that was embedded in the code of his blog. More details here and everything is down below.
