“Dreams (Amtrac Remix)” by Tough Love

 

Amtrac has been absolutely crushing the deep house game over the past couple of years, quietly putting together a formidable portfolio of polished, grooving originals and remixes that are truly distinctive to his sound.  Pretty much everything I’ve heard from him has been a top tier late night jam, and this new remix of Tough Love’s record “Dreams” is no different.  As always with Amtrac, it’s a dancefloor ready jam filled with funky vocal chops and vintage bassy deep house breakdowns.  Listen above and support the artists by buying this one on Beatport.

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

808-conglomerate-pumpthebeat

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’.

“Fu Gee La” by Legitimate Scandal

Legitimate Scandal, a trio based out of the UK, are starting to generate some buzz after putting out some smashing tracks. Now under the wing of their label, Guesthouse Music, the group is starting to release tunes left and right showcasing their amazing sound. These guys resemble a mix between AC Slater/Wiwek with their house roots and tribal feel you get with their music. We apologize in advance if you can’t stop playing this amazing track so sit back or get up and enjoy and also be on the look out these guys have more up their arsenal.

EP: “A Place Like This” by Majid Jordan [Out Now]

You don’t help make one of the best songs of 2013 and then simply get away with it. Majid Jordan, which is actually a duo consisting of Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman, helped produce and starred in “Hold On, We’re Going Home”. You all know the song and now the duo is back with OVO and is ready to release a new 5 track EP title A Place Like This. The first single and video for it are posted here and I was very pleased with what I heard. No doubt that Drake has good instincts when it comes to mentoring talent (The Weeknd & PARTYNEXTDOOR). The Canadian duo works in unison and the track is very smooth with some serious complementary base. Video is entertaining too… If you like this, I would also look into the EP they released last year under the alias Good People called Afterhours.

Update: Released yesterday, the EP is heavily influenced by simple electronic production and some up tempo beats. All about the smooth vocals, the OVO members are sure to get some nice attention on this EP. Hopefully they will upload it to SoundCloud soon so more people can listen before purchasing it.

Release Date: July 22nd, 2014

“Shell Shocked” by Juicy J, Wiz Kahlifa, & Ty Dolla $ign [Prod. by Kill The Noise & Madsonik]

"Shell Shocked" - pumpthebeat.com

Every time you hear about a new song from these guys you know it’s gonna be good and that the production will be similar to past songs. Looking at this track made for Michael Bay’s (Michael Bae) new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle film, I was suspicious to say the least. So basically Taylor Gang took this one in a whole new direction and worked with Kill The Noise & Madsonik (who?) to add a heavy bass and hard hitting electronic sound. It’s got all the characteristics of a Taylor Gang banger but with a lot more added. Now how hot is Megan Fox gonna look in this new movie and did Juicy J try to hit that?

Wiz has got that new album Blacc Hollywood on the way and some tracks have been leaking. They’re decent and provide some good summer vibes but don’t know if I’ve heard anything better than “We Dem Boyz” yet…
