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.

3LAU Gets Bored On Flight And Creates This Mashup

I don’t know about you, but when I go on flights, I’m usually passed out onto the person next to me. Well, the same definitely doesn’t apply to our dude, Justin Blau.

This “mashup” was pretty much born from a 3-hour plane ride. We get a chopped up drop from tracks like “Selfie (Botnek Remix)” to “Bubble Butt (Dada Life Remix).” If you’re curious about what other samples were used, the entire list will be embedded below.

WKND MZK – “Right Now”

tumblr_mzka8nkJBh1qdnfkpo1_1280

So last week’s playlist seemed to do alright so why not take another shot at it. I put these together so that you all can get a different taste of what’s out there. Songs can be interpreted and felt much differently depending on thousands of variations. With what I have for you below, maybe it will make you feel some type of way. Right Now.

“Cooler Than Latch” by White Panda (Disclosure ft. Sam Smith vs. Mike Posner)

The White Panda has been on a tear this week releasing a new remix everyday. Today they mixed up everyones favorite, “Latch”, with Mike Posner’s “Cooler Than Me”. The result is pretty catchy and not a bad choice for a summer time song. Good choice here as they literally would have to try really hard to mess up a Mike Posner & Disclosure mash-up. The other remixes are below so check those out too. Here comes the weekend!



“Insane (White Panda Vocal Edit)” Flume Ft. Kanye West

Whitepanda-ptb.com

Flume x Kanye West, you cannot go wrong with that. White Panda threw Kanye’s “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” vocal over Flume’s track “Insane.” First of all, “Insane” by itself is an incredible song. It contains every element to exactly describe what Flume is about. Second of all, old Kanye is unarguably one of the best rappers of all time. Combining the vocals over this crazy chillstep beat was a fantastic idea. Flume is hot right now and I love White Panda’s decision to release this vocal edit. They did a great job with this track making Ye’s vocals flow smoothly over the pulsing beat. I was extremely pumped to come across this song and it’ll definitely be on repeat all day!

Release Date: July 21, 2014

“Hold On Be Strong vs. Big Poppa (Matoma Remix)” by Matoma

Holdonmatoma-ptb.com

23-year-old Matoma from Norway decided to add his own style to Biggie and Tupac’s vocals for this epic mash up. This genre is described as Nu-Disco having the 90’s lyrics mixed with the nu-disco dance beats.  The transitions aren’t flawless but Matoma does a fantastic job producing a groovy beat that Notorious and Tupac’s vocal can flow right over. The electro rap infused disco track is perfect for any chill feeling environment.

Release Date: July 17, 2014

Weekend Music – “Now You Know”

"Now You Know" - PumpTheBeat.com

Even though the site has been on the grind this week and has covered tons of good music, we’ve still been able to hold back some of the juicy stuff to save for the weekend. Not necessarily just meant for partying on the weekend, these songs and sets are some of the ones we thought stood out and would be great to discover on the holiday weekend. Like previous weekends, this will be something I’ll try to put together every weekend just before things get crazy.

Below you’ll find remixes of ZHU, Tory Lanez, Drake, and even the real remix to the hip hop anthem of the year, “We Dem Boyz”. Sorry Puff, your remix falls behind after hearing Pt. 2. We’ve also got material from RL Grime, Just A Gent, The Weeknd, Fareoh, and a July 4th set from DJ Trademark that slays. If Arthur doesn’t fuck it up, this should be a nice weekend. Happy Birthday America! Here’s to fatty bacon, bald eagles, Tim Howard, and Kim Kardashian’s ass. God Bless!
