Video: “Prison Riot” by Flosstradamus ft. GTA & Lil Jon

Flosstradamus, GTA, and Lil Jon have all teamed up to bring trap to a whole new level. With ear-piercing synths constantly in your face, you’re given no choice but to throw up those trap arms.

“Prison Riot” is their newest collaboration, and with trap lords Flosstradamus and GTA taking the lead on the production, there’s very little room for failure. To top things off, Lil Jon, an artist who’s constantly sampled in dance music, queues the drop. Without further adieu, here’s what a “Prison Riot” looks like.

“Swim (FlicFlac Remix)” by Cape Cub

Swim - PumpTheBeat.com

The aspect of FlicFlac’s edit to Cape Cub’s “Swim” that makes the remix so appealing is the vibe generated by the song’s rhythm. As usual, FlicFlac delivers the listener an atypical futuristic/tropical/deep House melody that is ideal for straight chilling. Warning: “Swim (FlicFlac Remix)” by Cape Cub is known to cause excessive foot tapping and head bobbing.

“STREET” by NGHTMRE

You know when Mad Decent’s got your back, you’re doing something right. With his newest release, NGHTMRE brings on the hype and some much needed horn samples.

As the vocal sample echoing, “Back with the hard street,” booms in the background, hollow plucks compliments the bass by giving the track some pace. Skrillex debut this monster back at Ultra Music Fesitival 2015. Since then, the track has gained tons of other support from artists like Flosstradamus, RL Grime, and Bassnectar.

I had to come out from PTB hibernation to post this track because it is an absolute killer remix of one of my favorite songs. Sokene truly does The Weekend justice with this bass heavy rendition.

“Killa Bees” by Kayoh

killabees

I don’t know…this is, for me personally, just the ideal beat, tempo, and just about every other thing for, uh, pretty much every scenario in which I require music pounding in my ears! In all honesty, I had never even heard of Kayoh before the release of this track; but, I can’t deny that that’s forever changed, I’m going to be keeping a close on this guy’s releases!

Overall, the track mixes a pounding bass with an intense “my brain is bouncing around in my skull” rhythm, that has random moments where the artist can be heard saying “killa bees”. Once again, when I hear such holistically creative musical expressions like this one, I feel a desperate need to understand music to a much stronger degree. Anyways, I highly recommend listening to this song; I’m about to go for a run through downtown Toronto, I’m sure you can guess what will be playing in my ears.

Release Date: May 7th, 2015
