“Rocket” By W&W & Blasterjaxx


Two massive names in big room EDM are W&W and Blasterjaxx. Each with huge releases and exposure within the last 2 years, the 4 man team was assured to be great. Set to be released April 21st under Revealed Recordings, “Rocket” is an ace of tune and will have crowds blasting off their feet. Precise compression and sharp synths aren’t all these guys have to offer though. A menacing melody with a room filling lead hooks the listener into a formulaic build (which is nothing to brag about), then into a mind numbing drop chock full of energy and classic dutch synths/influences. Awesome job and rest assured it will be #1 on Beatport within its’ first couple days of hitting the net.

SZA ft Isaiah Rashad – “Warm Winds” [Music Video] + Swish Remix


New visuals by TDE‘s two most recently signed artists; SZA and Isaiah Rashad. We already knew these two sounded good together, but this collaborative track off SZA’s recently released project,S, may be my favorite to date. Check out the trippy visuals for “Warm Winds” below, and after that be sure to peep Seattle-based producer Swish and his latest remix of “Babylon” originally by SZA, the abstractly bouncy flip is just the joint you need to listening to after you watch the new music video by the twosome. Pure dopeness.

“GOAT” By Rico Da Freako (Official Music Video)


Promoting his website AyeFreako.com, Rico Da Freako, an underground hip-hop producer and artist. “GOAT“, Rico’s latest music installment, starts off with Mr. Sanders having a few choice words emphasizing his ambition in the music industry. Instrumental work by Houston producer Aes gives the entire track a classic feel with sampled female vocal riffs hovering over a down-tempo single count 808 bassdrum, light hi-hats, and deep reverberated snares.

Self proclaimed Chupacabra, Freako collaborated with Atlanta based film director Brendan Anderson to produce this cinematic music video consisting of flames, graffiti, log saws, and torch sparks. All in all pretty good work from all behind the “GOAT” project.

“Arms Around Me” By Hard Rock Sofa & Skidka [Axtone Records]

arms around me

Axtone Records never fails to impress. Every track they release is a masterclass production. “Arms Around Me” is their latest signed banger coming out of Axtone veterans, Hard Rock Sofa, with the addition of Skidka who within the last 5 months has had 2 other releases under Size Records and Protocol Recordings. The 3 man team has set the dance floors ablaze yet again with this funk infused progressive joy ride. Keeping the vibe flowing on every other up count, the guys use a vintage style synth stab, 70′s Roller Rink  consistent break, and a bouncy tech house like beat drop. Worthy of the ears of ravers new and old, “Arms Around Me” is a great way to offset your playlist and keep the listeners involved.

DT Blanco – “Flexa$” [Music Video]

Screen shot 2014-04-10 at 4.23.45 PM

Normally I don’t pay much attention to DJ service packs, but this time I was pleasantly surprised at the contents.

What we have here is a track and accompanying video straight out of the Lone Star State. Texas artist DT Blanco teams up with producer Mister Mammoth to bring us the banger that is “FLEXA$”

Blanco brings her Texas flow over a spine-tingling instrumental. This song may not be for everyone, but if you get down with southern rap, you will appreciate this.
