These guys have been leaving their mark on the dance scene with their urban appeal and fast paced work. Here in their remix of Chris Brown‘s “Loyal“,Dj Sliink with his synth work and bass with Trippy Turtle and his Jersey club style drums have taken the hit single to another level. Overall a pretty decent track and this won’t be the last collaboration we hear from these guys.
DEER is an Australian producer on the come up who deserves more shine. Prime example: his latest glitchy flip of “XE2” originally by MssingNo fucking rules. This future bass remix is a great introductory track to put you on to DEER if you’re not yet acquainted with his stunning production style. This cat clearly has a smooth path paved for his future in the industry, recently opening up two shows for HW&W Recordings artist Sweater Beats and much more on his plate for the remainder of the year, keep your focus on DEER. The remix also incorporates some classic R. Kelly vocals into it which always make one feel some nostalgic bliss, so be sure to peep it now after the jump - you will not be disappointed.
Two weeks ago, French producer Tommy Jacob released a new extended play appropriately titled Last, featuring six new incredible records. The rising beat-smith released a unfortunate message addressing his hiatus in the info for the project, stating:
“I hope that you’ll like it because it’s kinda my last musical project… In spite of all my efforts it’s really hard for me to make a living out of my music, that’s why i need to put my passion aside to find a job allowing me to pay the bills. [I] Wanted to thank you all for your support and i hope to come back to you soon!”
The stand out record [for me] off the new EP has to be the collaborative effort “Tell Me” featuring Chicago rapper, Mayo. This tune initially caught my attention due to it’s laid back guitar sample, one that is extremely similar to the sample used on Omari T.’s “Advent Chant,” a favorite of mine from last year. The project as a whole though, is not to be slept on. Atmospheric vibes float in the background of the emotional leads beautifully crafted by Tommy Jacob. I give this project an A+ and it saddens me that this may be (HOPEFULLY NOT – Let’s start a kickstarter for him so he doesn’t have to get a boring 9-5 like the rest of us!?) his last project for a while. Check out Tommy Jacob‘s Last EP below, you won’t be disappointed.
“I was gone off the shrooms with my lil n**** father figure standing in the room, watch him as he blossoms as he came from a cocoon..” Chi-Town’s upcoming rapper Sulaiman came out with a new song featuring Chance The Rapper titled “Fam and the Foolies” and its definitely a must hear. At first I was only interested because of Chano but when I heard Sulaimans verse I was blown away by his talent. His flow and lyrical content is very impressive for a dude with less than 2,000 Soundcloud followers. Chance The Rapper sings the hook and spits a verse as well, needless to say he absolutely kills it on this song… You can also definitely notice some of his 10 Day influence throughout this song. The beat is simple enough to really let these artists shine their talent which is rare now a days. Sulaiman’s recently released 8-song-project, THE MOGSis well worth the listen, but in the meantime check out “Fam And Foolies” below to help back my reasoning as to why you should listen to the project as a whole.
Seems like the younger talents are really starting to make their mark on the electronic industry. 16 year old Houston native Vaccid is one of the many youngins to catch the attention of recognized names like Borgeous and Deorro. Combining his signature side chain synths, full sustained kicks, and a sudden 808 breakdown, “Derek Jeter” is a big room melbourne trap hybrid ready for dancefloors the world over.

In the same fashion as his previous releases, Elaksi adds his future bass/dream trap twist on Drake‘s “Days In The East“. The Finland producer has been coming out with a long string of successful instrumental work and doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. Being modest Elaksi says “so not much effort was put into this,” but sometimes less is more and in this case he smashed it.
