“54-46 Was My Number (We Global Remix)” – Toots And The Maytals [Bonus: Twerk Contest Video]


July 25th. Today is one of those inevitably unhappy dates on my calendar that I usually try to ignore since it marks one month until fall classes begin at many universities. BUT. this also means two awesome things:

1. Mad Decent Block Party tour has it’s first stop in Ft. Lauderdale, FL tomorrow! This is a tour you definitely wanna grab tickets for as they travel around this fall.

2. With only a few more weeks, there’s all the more reason to turn up and live out this next month! (responsibly, of course)

In the spirit of these two things, I ran across a fantastic Siberian twerk-contest-video backed by a dope track that’ll get any dancefloor shaking. I personally think that old, soulful songs turned into trap anthems are some of the hype-est tracks out there and this bouncy beat is no exception. If the ladies in this video are any indication, I think most guys would have to agree.

I couldn’t find any information about “We Global” but the download is below for now and hopefully we’ll hear more from them soon!

“Gold Skies (Nezzo Remix)” by Sander Van Doorn, Martin Garrix & DVBBS

“Gold Skies” has only been out for a few weeks now, and Nezzo is one of the smart producers to jump on the remix. He labels his track as a “future bass,” and once listening to the track a few times through, it makes perfect sense.

It’s hard to categorize this track under one definitive category. It has progressive house elements and trap elements. Regardless of this split in genres, there’s one thing that everyone can agree on, and it’s Nezzo’s use of the low-frequency kicks. Definitely adds some fullness to the track and keeps it heavy.

“Man x Woman (GANZ Edition)” by Full Crate x Mar

When Full Crate and Mar released “Man x Woman” earlier this year, I became enamored with their music, which is  rooted in their home country, Amsterdam. The slight intricacies of their tracks made their music unique and timeless. In the back of my mind, I didn’t want a good “Man x Woman” remix to be released, so that it could stand alone. GANZ quickly changed my mind. I feel like GANZ and I have a similar taste in music, like many of us, because he always seems to remix songs that I love. Not only that, he makes his imprint into the song, and twists it in a delightful way.

EP: “Amsterdam Trap Music Vol. 2″ by Yellow Claw

yellow claw american trap music vol. 2 pumpthebeat.comI guess we’re on the EP game today, but this was too good not to pass up. The Duth trio, Yellow Claw, has clearly out done themselves. The problem Yellow Claw combats with their “Amsterdam Trap Music Vol. 2″ is the generic groupings that occurs due to the rapid growth of the umbrella genre that is “EDM.”

Listen to this EP all the way through, and let Yellow Claw take you on this journey through the trap. They’ve brought forth a ton of awesome features like Waka Flocka Flame and Beenie Man. There’s definitely one promise I can make. Every track is absolutely massive. So, if you’re curious about what we think about the EP, hit the jump for the track by track review.

Mad Decent Block Party will start their tour on Saturday (July 26) in Fort Lauderdale. Participants include Diplo (of course), Flosstradamus, Zeds Dead, Keys N Krates, and more. Every show will have a different lineup, and there are 22 cities across North America that will host the Block Party.

To hype up the upcoming tour, THUGLI has created a mix for everyone. This mix is diverse with tracks, we mainly get an arson of snares. Makes sense, since this mix is curated by THUGLI. The best part about trap mixes is the quick transitions from track to track. There are 33 tracks in this mix with 45 minutes to work with. Definitely worth a listen.

Valentino Khan, one of OWSLA’s up-and-coming artists, is out with a bran new EP. An interesting approach to have yourself as the main focal point of the EP, but I guess it is Valentino Khan’s music.

Aside from the album cover, the internal workings of this EP are fairly diverse and interesting. Valentino Khan elaborates more on his choices on the EP with this statement:

I want to give you guys something completely fresh and new with this entire release. It was important for me express my versatility as a producer as well as make something that would stand out musically.

“Core (808 Conglomerate & Zagor Remix)” by RL Grime


808 Conglomerate… yea I guess that sounds a tiny bit like the name of a dope Trap producer. So a bit over a week ago, Jay posted the video for RL Grime’s crazy latest single, Core. The video makes you feel like you’re playing some next-gen FPS and fits the original song perfectly – so don’t miss out on that.

The 808 Conglomerate, a duo out of London, is made up of two previous producers, Litek and Batu. Together they make some pretty low synth-bass. This week they have joined Zagor, another London producer not unfamiliar to the 808 fam, to add some tweaks to RL Grime‘s single that crank this track to the next notch when it comes to deep bass.

They’ve made this remix available as a free download, so check out Zagor and be sure to listen to the 808 Conglomerate’s brand new EP: ‘The Beginning’.
