Future Brown – Room 302 (Feat. Tink)

Future Brown_All White

What do you get when you take good production, sex appeal, and a tight mc? Well, a really good party, but you also get the song “Room 302” by Future Brown and Tink.

This four piece futuristic producer group based in LA and London have linked up with one of Chicago’s top emerging vocalists Tink, to create a truly progressive song. This fresh production, teamed up with Tink’s RnB flavor, creates a smooth tune with a hint of grit to it. Future Brown’s sound has said to have taken influences from both whats going on in the London Grime scene, meanwhile combining the fresh sounds of Chicago Rap and you can hear a touch of both in the song below.

The group’s self titled full length album is set to debut on Warp February 24th, so if you dig this one get set for more to come.

Point Point présente – Filet Mignon Volume II

This is one of the sickest beat tapes I’ve heard in a while. The paris based beat community goes through trap, juke, a few different house styles with this release and showcases some seriously talented producers.

Ganjaology Presents: Pussy Brunch – Chronic Kitty [MIXTAPE]

If you aren’t already familiar with the infamous ladies of Pussy Brunch, you’re in for a wild ride. This pair of bad girls take bedroom beats to a whole new level. We had the pleasure of kicking it with them during their set at What The Festival last month. It was ridiculously fun dancing to their stellar sound, and so – we decided to do a mixtape!

Hailing from the Labia Majora, Pussy Brunch’s Teagan Thais and Lauren Clayton are holding it down for the real hood. Their space crunkin’, booty whomp knockin’, bacon beats, are served along with a healthy side of turnt-up toast & twerky jerky. Their hand crafted blends of hyphy & thump chronic smackers, move through the speakers & stimulate your feelers. Bring extra panties caus’ their pu$$ypoppin beats will leave ya dripping to top off the cream in your coffee.

Peep the mix below, and please note: This is a PARENTAL ADVISORY release. Haha, seriously though. It’s good. It’s fucking good. So go ahead, prep those drawls and turn up that appetite for…

DJ Professor Stone – WTF?! DJ Mix from the OMG Lounge

Just a couple weeks ago one of the North West’s most notorious music fesitvals, What The Festival?!, was going full force down in Oregon.  With dozens of top notch artists from around the world performing, it was pretty difficult to make it everywhere you wanted when you planned and often times I found myself at a stage listening to music from an artist I was previously unfamiliar with.   One of the best instances of stumbling upon a “surprise performance” was when our crew made a quick stop by the OMG Lounge and DJ Professor Stone was throwing down some heavy, bass drive, reggae inspired dubstep & trap.  There were so many jaw dropping tunes coming back to back that our original plans were immediately cancelled and the OMG Lounge was our final destination for the evening.  Representing Seattle’s, ZION GATE RECORDS, DJ Professor Stone has been around the reggae scene for several decades now, and is showing that he’s still in his prime.  His DJ set was versatile, full of heady tunes, and downright fun.   Stone had the whole dance floor quaking!  Check out this mix and feel the vibes from WTF?!!

Alison Wonderland – I Want U (Ganz Flip)

Ganz has really crushed this remix of Alison Wonderland’s original tune “I Want U”. Caught somewhere between Trap and Dubstep, this tune really shows the Dutch producer’s signature sound. His huge synths paired with crisp percussion layer so nicely to surround Alison’s angelic voice. Biggin up the Ganz!

Kreesha Turner – MJ

Damn, I hadn’t heard of Kreesha Turner until I saw this video, but as soon as the beat dropped I was instantly a fan. Everything from her style, to her flow, to the aesthetics of the video is amazing. It seems as though she has somewhat reinvented herself since her earlier work, as this sound has more of a raw sexiness to it. Her track MJ is the second single off of her forthcoming album cleverly titled “Evolution Inevitable”. This Edmonton, Alberta native has everything it takes to be a star, and with various Juno and Much music awards she is more than on her way.

Check out the video below and stay tuned for her full length album, we can’t wait to hear more from this girl.

Skrillex – Recess (Album)

I was originally going to do a post on the tune with Chicago’s Chance The Rapper, but the more I listened, the more I realized that the whole album deserved a post. Skrillex really flexed his wide variety of production skills with this collection of songs. From the heavy songs with OG MC’s Ragga Twins, to the ravey club sounds of the Kill The Noize collaboration, Skrillex shows his expertise in EDM production. But it doesn’t stop there, he takes hip/hop and breaks references, there are influnces from garage and house, and then there’s the downright abstract production of Doompy Poomp.

The album goes from energetic peaks to deep melodic troughs. Its pretty clear that a lot of time was put into this album, and although it has an overtone of a Club-like vibe, Skrillex has provided a little bit for everyone. On his soundcloud the producer dedicates the album to “all the artists and fans that continue to support and propel this scene into amazing new places” showing his love for more than even just making the music but for the whole community of people contributing to electronic music. Some people may not like the heavier stuff, some people may not like the minimal stuff, but if you give this album a listen I guarantee you’ll find something that perks your ears up.

If you’re not into heavy Club or Electronic Music I’d steer you towards  – 3. Stranger, 5. Coast Is Clear, 8. Doompy Poomp, 9. Fuck That, and 11. Fire Away. If not, just check em all because from the production to the mixing to the mastering is all very well done. Biggup to Skrillex.

Slick Trilla – True & Real [TRAPSTYLE EXCLUSIVE]

Slick Trilla – True & Real [TRAPSTYLE EXLUSIVE]

Doshy – Malfunction

Doshy never ceases to amaze me. His imagination and creativity constantly pushes his music forward and in my opinion pushes the envelope of what sounds fresh and new in the electronic game. The mesh between his older hip hop roots with his 808 based sound (to generalize), along with what sounds like influences from Trap and Dubstep, this German producer’s sound keeps moving in new wild directions. His newest, “Malfunction” is truly an example of this. The production is clean and crisp, the melodies are fresh and he breaks the mold percussion-wise. Check out the tune below, and grab it for free from XLR8R!

Jim-E Stack – Is It Me (J. Hanna Bootleg)

Ganjaology, Jim-E Stack, J. Hanna, Bootleg

Cleveland native J. Hanna has stolen the show with this one. Not only has he effectively bootlegged this sultry tune from NYC based producer Jim-E Stack, but he’s done it with such imagination and vigor that I question whether he should even fess up. I guess, like with any bootleg, you have to give it up to the original… but seriously, J. Hanna comes with a crushing remix of what was already a super hype tune. Be sure to stay tuned for new music from both J. Hanna and Jim-E Stack.

Big up fellas!!

DO$EMONEY Album Review

I had to really meditate on this album to even get on a level high enough to post about it. These trapped out philosiphers  have created a set of tracks that deliver you a dose of higher thinking in the utmost hood fashion. Trap Rap’s first boy band, consisting of Goldfacemoneywatch, Mondo the Moonrock, Kick Dose, Boy Bando and Believe, has created all of their media from scratch. From the intricate production, to the crisp engineering, to the next level lyrical content, Dose Money has birthed this unique album with their Dosed Trap flavor and done it all themselves.

Now, there’s a few different levels to this album. Beyond this perfectly imperfect trap sound, there’s an underlying theme to this group of tracks. This album’s aim is to bring a higher level of thinking in the form of trap music. In other words this album is meant dose all of East Cleveland in one fell swoop. Each of the songs stick close to the dose topic but talk about specifics like the necessity of having multiple cell phones, or moving weight in bulk in order get the best profit margin, topics that need to be properly discussed.The groups first single “Halloween” is all about ‘serving of the porch like its halloween’, one could say the group in this song is trapping a higher sense of existence. When teamed up with the dark, crisp visuals shot by Dose Money’s own Believe, the track is truly complete.

All of these tracks come together to form the groups carefully crafted debut album “DO$E”. I must warn you, before you click play, make sure to allow a solid amount of time to let this album set in and deliver you the intended mind opening experience.

Skriptah – Captivated

Man Skriptah has crushed it with this beat. He just released this wonderful tune two days ago and it needs to be heard. Such an awesome vibe comes through the melody he has constructed, and matched up with the awesome percussion and ambient noise? perfection.

It would be awesome to see a release of this one, big ups to the man Skriptah!

Mura Masa & Stooki Sound – “Rvre”

I’ve really been diggin’ music that utilizes spaces, more so than clouding up the tune with sound after sound. This tune really does exactly that, you’ll hear what I mean when the drop comes. The UK producers Mura Masa and Stooki Sound have created yet another subby banger that you can chill to or you can spin into club sets. This one is set to be released on Sep. 17th so keep your eyes peeled!

The minimal, trap influenced bass music is where its at – check this one.
