He’s back… As with his recent hit from Banana Seat (currently at 175k plays and counting) the NYC/Boston axis has teamed up again for the aptly tagged electronic soul track “Must Be.”
The NYC native Jordan Bratton teamed up with Mmmmaven’s own Durkin for a fresh summer tune. Durkin provides a laid back beat filled with cut time hits and subtle industrial sounds to make the track punch in just the right spots without coming off too heavy. Jordan’s effected vocals give the track a slurred, hypnotizing feel that makes fly by before you have enough of his pure voice. Have a listen and before you know it, you’ll be hitting replay to get more of the deadly combo who may very well be appearing in Boston sometime soon, keep a lookout.
A ton of free goodies popped up on the mighty Soundcloud this week, and I’ve hand picked five to help you start, end and glide right through your Thursday. To start off your day, Royal from Crack Beetz has given away another free refix, this time tapping Coldplay for a chilled out future bass tune. Its starts out with a bare piano intro before dropping into a bassy wave of Coldplay goodness.
After you’ve woken up a bit, The new Shlohmo-produced Jeremih EP just dropped. I haven’t listened to more than a few seconds of every song and I already know it’s going to be huge. With Shlohmo’s perfectly huge beats and Chance the Rapper a feature, Jeremih can do no wrong. Get this on your computer ASAP so it can become the soundtrack to your day.
Now it’s time for some club music to keep you bouncing, and a few Moving Castle producers are responsible for the first. Vices and Jailo take on Ty$ with “Know Y I Came.” They get into the dirtier side of jersey club with this tune, but they still keep their glittery synths in the mix
Happy Colors and G- Buck aren’t the names you’d expect to see on a club track, but they absolutely killed Jessie Slayter’s “Thick”. You can tell they also brought their own stylistic backgrounds into play, the track is dripping with tropical grooves and trappy sub bass.
It’s impossible to go wrong remixing Tinashe, and Boeboe is no exception to the rule with his remix of 2 On. He takes his own brand of house and twists it with Tinashe’s beautiful vocals to celebrate 10k followers, and the best part is he’s giving it away for free.
And to turn down for the night, Sh?m gives us his rendition of †††’s Bitches Brew. It exudes almost a retro feel, reminiscent of the classic Penguins tune, “Earth Angel.” But Sh?m assures you this isn’t a pop song with the experimental breakdown and flooding synths that wash over the track.
