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.

“Take Ü There (Slander Remix)” by Jack Ü

Jack Ü - Take Ü There (Slander Remix) PumpTheBeat.com

Seriously, what a monster release. Heaven trap? Unfortunately, not this time. But, we’ve got something that’s just as good. Slander, as always, is delivering a massive trap track.

Snares, low frequency synth shots, and percussion sounds are a few of many things that are right with this song. The fast cuts are what definitely cut me off guard. Amazing stuff from Slander. Definitely a track that I could see both Skrillex and Diplo including in their sets.

“Smacked” by Mr. Carmack

Mr. Carmack starts off with some eerie bass wobs that let you know what he means by the title “Smacked”. But then the song tricks you into thinking its just some funky trance. The middle of the section builds steadily, with the typical progressions, but never in a way that prepares you for the second half. And ill just leave it at that.

“The Way U Do (RL Grime Remix)” by Shlohmo

The Way U Do (RL Grime Remix) - Shlohmo PumpTheBeat.com

Rl Grime has been killin it lately and this Shlohmo remix is one of many reasons he has got so much hype. This is one of the best chill tunes for when you’ve already had a chance to bump some sick speakers and wanna hear that sub sing just one last time before you call it a night. With a lot more energy than the original, you can hear Rl Grimes trap influence throughout, although the overall chill vibe of the song is reminiscent of deep house or some chiller dubstep.

“Core (Djemba Djemba’s Selassie Bootleg)” by RL Grime

No disrespect to all of the other fantastic remixes of RL Grime’s recent banger “Core,” or even the original version for that matter, but what Djemba Djemba just did with this track is absolutely next level electronic music, period. People often talk about the EDM market becoming over saturated, and the bubble of our scene eventually bursting due to the homogenization of popular genres like trap. If you are looking for an example of progressive music that is still challenging the status quo in spite of this, look no further than Djemba Djemba. The kid is a force to be reckoned with. Enjoy and grab the free download above.

“Hot N#gga (Caked Up Remix)” by Bobby $hmurda

If you’ve been to any massive festival recently, you’ve probably heard this remix of Bobby $hmurda. At TomorrowWorld, every stage was bumping this remix, and it got people hype.

The original track has some questionable lyrics, no doubt. But, when you add snares, shotgun samples, and a few new synths, the mood changes a little bit and the focus moves away from the lyrics. If you’re looking for a fun, party remix to “Hot N#gga,” this is it.
