It has been a while since I have found a tried and true trap track that really catches my attention but this latest release from LUZCID and Tichi has done just that. Beginning with the artwork, you get a middle-eastern vibe and it carries all the way through the track and is noticeable as soon as the track starts. This sounds like the soundtrack to an Aladdin style turnup anthem and appropriately enough the word DJINN is another word for “genie”. Be sure to grab the track below for free download and check the usual assortment of links below!
After seeing the tandem of Paper Diamond and LOUDPVCKtear it up at Webster Hall a couple weeks ago, I can safely say these guys absolutely know how to turn up. I’m not sure when exactly this track was made (although I can probably assume this was made while they were on the Cold Crush tour) but I’m fairly certain I heard this that night at Webster.
The tag team of A-Trak and Lex Luger, otherwise known as Low Pros, have come together to release another single off their upcoming Fools Gold released record EP1 titled 100 Bottles with production assistance from none other than Brillz and vocals from Travi$ Scott. Between Brillz’ trapstyle production chops, Lux Luger’s knowledge of all things BIG, A-Trak’s ear and Travi$ Scott’s wide array of vocal capabilities, this as an absolute must-have for fans of big time bass.
This ‘Verve Remixed: The First Ladies’ project has to be one of my favorite things to have come out this summer. The legendary record label has contacted a slew of the hottest producers and DJs in the game right now including Zeds Dead, Kaskade and Pretty Lights to remix their impressive catalog of hits. Allowing Bassnectar to give Nina Simone’s song Feelin Good the extra shot of energy he did is absolutely amazing and you can check out the full project if you wanna hear more!
With “TaKillYa”, Colorado producer, Vinnie Maniscalco offers a refreshing bass-heavy remix of the 1958 hit, Tequila, made famous by The Champs. The song initially starts out very similarly to the original tune, and doesn’t truly catch your ear until the drop. The drop is a surprise to say the least, and is the point at which you come to the pleasant realization that Vinnie Maniscalco has cleverly hidden a straight up banger in a nostalgic 50′s track. Quick high hats and thumping 808′s never sounded better with the classic summery horns of “Tequila”. Expect to hear this jam a lot more this summer!
A couple months ago, we introduced you to Alex Young, the 16-year old boy wonder who is taking the EDM world by storm. Little has changed since then, as he’s still cranking out massive tunes, like Mastermind, a track that he just released earlier today. To classify the song within a genre would be unfair, as it’s a product of what would happen if festival trap and house decided to have a baby. However, one thing is certain, and it is that you’ll definitely be hearing this track dropped at festivals all over the country, this summer. You can catch Alex Young at EDC Las Vegas, in June, and can expect to hear more from him, as we delve deeper into summer.
LUZCID is the collaborative musical duo of Neil Berry and Jonathan Bartz. Currently based out of New Paltz, NY, the pair, in my opinion, should be commended for their ability to blend a multitude of genres and styles, while still creating a unique and tasteful sound. Their Shot Caller LP, which was just released earlier today, is a prime example of exactly that. Consisting of 5 original tracks and 2 remixes, it is a satisfying mix of diverse trapstyle tunes, that are guaranteed to have your bass kicking, and your feet moving. We may only be 4 months into 2013, but the duo has already opened for artists such as gLAdiator, Alvin Risk, and DJ Sliink, and is scheduled to play at the Bella Terra Music Festival, Forest Fest, and the Freedom of Expression Music Festival. With that said, look for 2013 to be a huge year for LUZCID! And be sure to cop their new Shot Caller LP!
I don’t think I’m alone when I say Rugrats was one one my favorite shows, growing up. Hell, I even still watch it on occasion. With that said, when I came across SAY MY NAME‘s Festival Lasers Trap Remix of the Rugrats Theme Song I was ecstatic. I never thought I’d hear a childhood anthem work so well with the combination of a heavy bass, fast, trappy hi-hats, and a bubbly synth. While he may currently be a smaller, lesser-known producer in the trap scene, SAY MY NAME will be a household name sooner than you think, if he keeps releasing bangers like this!
In anticipation of their Black Magic Mystical Wonder Tour, Rochester native, Kill The Noise and L.A. trap producer Brillz, released an hour-long trap mix that’s guaranteed to make your Monday a whole lot better! The Black Magic Mystical Wonder Tour runs from March 28th to May 11th, and is hitting 27 cities across the United States, as well as Canada. Kill The Noise and Brillz will be joined on tour by Style of Eye and Codes. If the mix is any indication of the strength of the tour, you’re gonna want to make sure you don’t miss it when it comes to a city near you!

If you don’t know this by now, I am a huge fan of anything that is remotely in the realm of dubstep. Although as of late i’ve been trying to expand my horizons on the electronic music I listen to, and the artists I listen to. Below are bunch of tracks that once again encompass many genres of electronic music. Some of these are much more well known then others. Be sure to listen to them all, because it never hurts to try the widen the array of music that one listens to.
