“Molly On My Chest (Benasis Remix)” by Riff Raff, Yung Nation & Crichy Crich http://www.pumpthebeat.com/molly-on-my-chest-benasis-remix-by-riff-raff-yung-nation-crichy-crich/ http://www.pumpthebeat.com/molly-on-my-chest-benasis-remix-by-riff-raff-yung-nation-crichy-crich/#respond Thu, 21 May 2015 20:19:48 +0000 http://www.pumpthebeat.com/?p=23611 Molly On My Chest

Benasis’ newest release, a remix, is, simply put, an emphatic fusion of trap and hip hop. The track features cyclically repeating vocals that combine with the absolutely disgusting, I say this in the most enthusiastically positive way, heavily-dropping rhythm and beat. Literally right out of the gate, the track features a suspense-building amalgamation of increasingly quick, rap style, vocals and a much lower, in comparison to the tempo further in, beats per minute (BPM). As the track continues, the tempo rises and falls, referencing BPM, in a manner similar to other trap mixes. Additionally, the vocals pick up in speed and intensity, thereby delving into the gloriously diverse world of rap and hip hop.

Overall, this remix is fantastic! It features a nice range of musical styles, vocal patterns, and an impressive tempo. As I listen to the track, I can almost feel the desperate need to rave clawing away inside my brain, just begging me to start pounding my fist like a crazed animal, begging to be released from the cage of ennui. Well done Benasis!

Release Date: May 20th, 2015

“Overflowing” by Michael Woods http://www.pumpthebeat.com/overflowing-by-michael-woods/ http://www.pumpthebeat.com/overflowing-by-michael-woods/#respond Thu, 21 May 2015 15:40:16 +0000 http://www.pumpthebeat.com/?p=23608 michael woods overflowing pumpthebeat.com

As an artist constantly trying to separate himself from the pack, Michael Woods has successfully done just that since he began his career during the early 2000s. Now, with a residency at LiFE at the SLS in Las Vegas and multiple hit releases, there’s much more for him to live up to.

Woods, apparent from releases like “Overflowing,” seems to have no problem with this at all. With an energetic vibe mixed in with some grittiness, there’s almost a disco-y flare to this powerful track. Definitely a perfect track for a club set.

“TV Set” by Spoon http://www.pumpthebeat.com/tv-set-by-spoon/ http://www.pumpthebeat.com/tv-set-by-spoon/#respond Wed, 20 May 2015 18:05:23 +0000 http://www.pumpthebeat.com/?p=23572 Spoon-TV-Set

Following their  triumphant LP They Want My Soul it sounds as if Spoon is continuing with the ambient vibe. This time they incorporate a spooky factor in their cover of The Cramps’ “TV Set” for the reboot of the 1982 horror flick Poltergeist. Their cover is merely identical to the original, only Spoon plays with the noise more which overpowers the signal giving their version its even eerier feel.

Lil Wayne and Wiz Khalifa are launching DJ careers http://www.pumpthebeat.com/lil-wayne-and-wiz-khalifa-are-launching-dj-careers/ http://www.pumpthebeat.com/lil-wayne-and-wiz-khalifa-are-launching-dj-careers/#respond Wed, 20 May 2015 02:16:43 +0000 http://www.pumpthebeat.com/?p=23569 wiz khalifa and lil wayne pumpthebeat.com

Hip-hop artists Lil Wayne and Wiz Khalifa are expanding into the DJ world, and this controversial move will definitely shake up the dance music world. For newcomers, both artists are demanding a high price.

According to TMZ, Lil Wayne and Wiz Khalifa will be charging $60K and $25K respectively and have claimed that their inspiration stemmed from Snoop Dogg’s entry to DJing. A $60K pricetag is what veteran DJs like Armin van Buuren commands.

Along with these booking costs, they will also demand 1st class service and VIP treatment. Although Lil Wayne has still yet to announce his official DJ name, Wiz Khalifa has announced his name to be DJ Daddy Cat.
