“Know Yourself (EKALI Remix)” by Drake

Surely you’re familiar with Drake’s latest free mixtape by now. Just as suddenly as the collection popped up on fans a week ago, so have producers been quick to release renditions of their favorite songs; as we saw earlier from Madeaux’s Energy remix via Serge. Today we’ve got EKALI‘s take on one of the more popular tracks from IYRTITL, Know Yourself.

EKALI has definitely been on top of the latest Hip-Hop releases, also tackling Drake’s recent feature on “Blessings” which I threw below for y’all to listen to.

PumpTheBeat.com Presents: Trap Tuesdays Vol. 10

traptuesdays10

Never thought I’d see the 10th volume of Trap Tuesdays, but here we are. This weeks’ list features the sweet DJ Mustard-influenced “Faded 2.0″, some twerk-worthy Dim Mak releases, and some new Hucci. Watch out for the mood-change when the list slows up while keeping that deep 808 under some classic Drake vocals.

As always, I’d love to hear any feedback you all have as well as any artist/track suggestions for the next 10 volumes of Trap Tuesdays!

Earlier this month, Nicky Romero premiered “I Am You” on his Protocol Radio. Since then, the festival vibes surrounding the track have definitely gotten stronger.

With “I Am You,” Tom Swoon and First State lead you through a progressive melody perfect for the upcoming festival season. Even better is the fact that Empire Festival in Guatemala have picked up the track as its official soundtrack. If this track doesn’t get you anxious for festival season, I don’t know what will.

“Kensei” by Ummet Ozcan

Earlier this month, we were able to speak with Ummet Ozcan about what was going on in his life then. He spoke about “finding inspiration in anything,” and that’s definitely evident in his newest track “Kensei.”

“Kensei,” in Japanese, relates to the ranking of a swordsman during Feudal Japan. From listening to the synths that Ummet Ozcan uses for his track, you can definitely hear a Japanese themed feel that he’s trying to get at. Complimenting this mood is the massive amounts of festival energy. With “Kensei,” Ummet Ozcan is definitely making a statement as being one of the leaders of the festival house game.
