tumblr_nan219SkWz1tyuch8o2_1280

Here’s another set of hits you all should familiarize yourselves with. Just a recap, I put these together in sort of a story mode that plays out in my head so I apologize if it doesn’t really make any sense to you all. While there are songs here from every side of the spectrum, hopefully you give them all a chance. Thanks for listening.

Video: “All About That Bass” by Timeflies

After going on a streak of Timeflies Tuesday ‘Babymakers”, this week the guy’s decided to turn it up and give us a “Club Banger” that we can rage the night away to. It’s “All About The Bass” as Timeflies puts their signature spin on the popular party track by Meghan Trainor. Rez crushed it when making this filthy beat that will get any crowd of “Flyhards” going wild. Cal’s natural vocal ability and freestyle skills put the icing on the cake, giving us this seemless remix. The guy’s of Timeflies continue to grind it out in the studio working hard on new music, as well as prepping to hit the road this Fall for a massive tour with our friend Kap Slap. Head over to TimefliesMusic.com to grab your tickets and guarenntee your spot to party with the guy’s of Timeflies.

“Talk Talk” by George Maple

George Maple - talk talk - pumpthebeat.com-jpgWe all have something to say, but whom or what we discuss  is a matter of its own. George Maple, the coronated leading lady of the future classic family comes out with a new single  entitled “Talk Talk”. Anchored by a calm centred beat, Maple reveals the sensuality in her voice, leaving you to feel as if you’re the subject of this song. As one of her lyrics go “There’s so much more to lose when you talk…” I can concur and say there’s nothing to lose if you let this song play out. We’re looking forward to familiarizing ourselves with George Maple especially with the upcoming release of her EP ” Vacant Space” due next month.

Release Date : September 1, 2014

“Stay With Me (Cole Plante Remix) ” by Sam Smith

Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” has been described as an emotional crescendo. It is soulful as it is raw. Cole Plante’s remix is just as riveting as the original. The smooth bass line and the backing vocals from the Gospel Choir provide great support to the sentiment in Sam’s voice. Cole stated that he  wanted to approach this remix in a way where he was producing it as an original. But it is almost as if Cole and Sam were in the same room pooling their talents together for this haunting production.

Video: “Break Free” by Ariana Grande ft. ZEDD

I guess when it comes to “EDM” for major labels, it means space and the future. It seems to be the theme recently with more mainstream dance music songs, and Ariana Grande follows suit. I’m not a huge fan of the video, and honestly, I lost it at the boob cannons that Ariana Grande sports towards the end. I wish the production quality for the video was better, but, what can I do…

Regardless, we’re here for the music. Like I mentioned in my review, the song does an amazing job bridging the gap between pop and EDM. This track definitely creates more opportunities for future collaborations between the two genres. The one thing I’d like to mention that I enjoyed in the video is ZEDD’s cameo. Oh, and Ariana Grande is a total babe.

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.
