Contest: Win 2 VIP Tickets to Oliver Heldens @ Pacha, NYC (Nov. 7)

heldens oliver pumpthebeat.com pacha nyc

One of the biggest names in deep house will be coming to NYC in a few weeks. I’ve been saying this for a while now, and I definitely think Heldens will be the next Garrix. Not in terms of style, but in terms of how he is viewed in the dance music community. Garrix is a young artist who created sounds that were new to the scene. Artists are constantly looking to build on new ideas, and Heldens has exactly that.

Before Heldens blows up to the caliber Martin Garrix, you can catch him at Pacha NYC. Not a bad way to start your weekend. Ticket giveaway details will be included below:

“Summertime” Video by Dr!ve & DJ Bowser


It’s getting cold… I personally love this slightly chilly-and-breezy, slightly warm-and-beautiful season that is Autumn.

However, I am definitely not looking forward to sub-zero temps and freezing rain. Hopefully this upbeat track and video for Summertime gets us all through this Winter season. With a catchy guitar loop, funky bass-line, and Reggae-esque vocals; this song is sure to keep you warm for a while.

Free download on this one thanks to Dr!ve & DJ Bowser.

“Burial (Moody Good Remix)” by YOGI ft. Pusha T

YOGI ft Pusha T - Burial (Moody Good Remix) PumpTheBeat.com

YOGI is definitely making moves in the trap game. For his upcoming release, YOGI is preparing for a remix EP for his track “Burial.” With dark vocals featuring Pusha T, the track already had a ton of potential. YOGI is a trio that knows trap.

OWSLA labelmate, Moody Good, however, brings more of a heavy feel to the table. You probably noticed once the drop kicked in. The remix EP will be featuring remixes by Skrillex & Trollface, Moody Good, and Crookers. All I know is, OWSLA is definitely making hard moves this year.

Release Date: November 13, 2014

“Outside” by Calvin Harris & Ellie Goulding

Calvin Harris blessed us again with another crazy release. Kind of scared he’ll release the entire album at this rate. There’s already at least five or so singles out with “Under Control”, “Summer”, “Blame”, “Burnin'”, and the latest, “Slow Acid”. His last album seemed to have some hidden gems so we’ll see what he leaves us with.

“I Need Your Love” brought these two together and seemed flawless to the world. But do these two songs sound too similar? Album is released on November 4th and should be impressive. Until then, here’s “Outside”!

Release Date: October 20th, 2014  |  iTunes

Video: “Tuesday Remix” by iLoveMakonnen & Drake + “How About Now” by Drake

Drake’s been busy lately. I really couldn’t tell you what he was thinking in Kentucky the other night but musically, he’s all there. His newest signee, iLoveMakonnen, has one of the hottest songs out anywhere and here’s the video for it. Sporting the entire OVO crew and real life, get the club goin’ up.

iLoveMakonnen is a weird kid but I think Drake will help his music evolve. That doll creeps me out tho. Oh, and a new song from Drizzy called “How About Now” leaked. Not sure if it’s a new song from his album or a track cut from Nothing Was The Same. 

Recently, The Weeknd‘s newest singles both got tied up in remixes that I thought you all should hear. Not all that great but you really can’t do much better than The Weekend on his own. Ty Dolla $ign’s verse in the “King Of The Fall Remix” is gold but the rest definitely get’s the skip button. We need more Abel.
