Fans of DJ Mustard should familiarize themselves with Bay Area rapper Vell. The young up-and-comer is about to drop a mixtape  called STAY DOWN TO COME UP which will be hosted by none other than DJ Mustard and DJ Amen… meaning its only a matter of time before Power 106 starts bumping Vell every hour on the hour.

The original Oakland track was the first from the mixtape to leak (about a month ago) and Vell’s raps are juicy with that hyphy bay-area swagger which compliments Mustard’s beats very well (I’ve always thought of Mustard as a pan-California producer with strong hyphy influences despite being a SoCal boy… Bay Area rap has always had a presence in the LA ‘underground’ scene… Why do you think Andre Nickatina always rolls through on tour?)

To help hype the mixtape, Amen and Mustard got Ash Riser  to do a trap remix for Oakland and it’s even more club-friendly than the original. The track goes pretty hard and best of all, the remix is available as a free download! That’s that **** that we do like! (I can already picture all the baes in the bay shaking ass to this).

Check out the first two tracks from the mixtape and download Ash Riser’s dope remix of Oakland below. We’ll be keeping an eye on this one…

We told you to keep an eye out for StéLouse this summer after featuring him on our Too Future. Thursday posts, and we meant it. The Denver DJ/producer, formally known as Ross Ryan, has provided us with music and melodies that reflect his heart and soul this entire summer.  Now, he’s teamed up with Ahh-Ooh for the lushy “Intro Juice” that’s definitely one delicate gem. Warming up those butterflies in our tummy, StéLouse and Ahh-Ooh cook up a batch of future bass with a bit of pillow-talky synths on the side. Summer is slowly ending, meaning the infamous “cuffing season” is approaching, and you’re definitely going to need this Filthy Fortune Records track to prep yourself.

"Dare to be different. You can't be the next x,y,z; you have to be the first YOU."

“Dare to be different. You can’t be the next x,y,z; you have to be the first YOU.”

Run The Trap got to sit across from one of the most well-respected DJs in the hip hop community: DJ Green Lantern. Having recently headlined his first New York City show back in February, he came back again ready to start off his Trifecta Tour with DJ Sliink and TWRK at Webster Hall. Requesting nothing more than a few bottles of water and some Redbull, he rests his back against the seats, takes a swig of his energy drink, and opens up to us about everything from touring with Nas to explaining the difference between a DJ and artist. But, before he even began kicking his knowledge, Green Lantern–formally known as James D’Agostino–hit the play button on Flosstradamus‘ “Original Don”:

Do you hear that? That ‘run the trap’? The guy saying the phrase has a heavy Jamaican accent, so people ran with ‘run the trap’, but he’s actually saying ‘run the track‘. The whole thing is incorrect, it’s just convenient; it sounds cool.”  

After a little back and forth about the miscommunicated phrase, we got down to business.

What have you been up to since the last time you were performing at Webster Hall?

Uhm a lot of deli plates, a couple fruit plates… some water, some redbull, some gum. A lot of bass and uh, a couple of face melts.

You have kind of been under the radar music wise, aside from “Trifecta” (which we premiered on the website). Whatsup with that?

I’ve been in the lab for the past about 4-5 months working on new stuff, which is all about to start being released. Actually, I released a new one, Thissongissick just premiered it: it’s called “The Funk Space Coaster” which is an experimental, hybrid, funk-soul/trap record. So, I’ve been playing that in my sets and I’m digging the response. I took some James Brown soul sample elements, put it in a blender, set it on funk, and uh stopped it, put it on trap, stopped it… No, (laughter) I’ve just been experimenting with stuff and there’s a bunch of things that is about to come out. I’ve just been taking my time testing records before I release them. There’s actually a mix I’m doing called “Monster” that’s going to have about 10 original records, and that’s coming out in maybe like 2 weeks. It’s been done for a minute, I’ve just been tweaking it here and there.

Are you still label free?

There’s an option for another Ultra release, but there’s not like an album deal or label contractual thing other than that.

Do you like not being binded in a strict contract?

Definitely! You can do what you want. Other than that, it’s like a schedule and I don’t like to have my creativity regulated to a specific schedule. I was actually talking to (laughter) a friend of mine–we have the same management, he’s also an artist/producer–last night, he was telling me (referring to the manager) ‘Yo you should put a 12-month plan together’. I just looked at him like [blank stare], ‘Bro, it’s not me.’ Basically, some people it just doesn’t work for them; it’s a great organizational skill to have, and that will work… But, if you are a creative guy sometimes it’s not in you to do that.  Sometimes, it’s just going to be ‘Look, I just made this shit… Let’s put it out.’ If it sticks to the wall, then it sticks; if not, I can just make something else.

So, what are you focusing most on right now?

Honestly. I like to experiment with a lot of different styles, but in the back of my mind I want to rock into something–I just don’t know what that is yet. But, I am having fun with all this other stuff and experimenting with different styles. I don’t think I’ll leave the styles alone, and I see that people would say–well, as far as electronic music goes–‘you’ve kind of stayed in trap lane, so that would be your thing.’ But, it’s kind of what was there. You know, it was a natural progression for me coming in from hip hop.

Last time you were at Webster hall, you were headlining your first NYC show. Now you’re back, so how does that feel?

It feels good. It always feels good to be in the big apple and just turn up! All three of our sounds are very cohesive, and I feel like the people are going to have a good time.

Talk a little bit more about Webster Hall and how the whole Trifecta Tour came about with Sliink and TWRK.

I wish I could tell you that we all got together and ate pizza, but a bunch of mutual friends of ours did get together and I feel like there was some pizza. Definitely some emails! But, we cross paths all the time and I see those guys at festivals and shows; we’ve all played the same bills together, so when some of the powers that be came to me and said, ‘what do you think about this?’ I said, ‘hell yeah! Those are the homies, when are we doing it?’ And, here we are.

You guys made the song “Trifecta” specifically for the tour, but do you think it would’ve happened if the tour wasn’t in the equation?

It probably would have happened, but we definitely went in saying let’s make something for the tour. It was fun [making the track], we were all touring all over the place and TWRK and Sliink were able to get together, while I was running around–because I’m still out on the road with Nas and stuff. It was just some emails back and forth as far as I went, and next thing I know they sent back the final version with the ending of it, the twerk section/tempo change. And, it was dope. I really like it.

Do you think the different atmospheres (Club vs. Venue) affect the way you put on a show?

Mmmmmm. YES! Because in this setting for example–the show setting–there’s definitely more attention paid on you as opposed to the club setting. I like to use this phrase [for the club setting]: you are narrating their V.I.P experience. That is nightlife in 2014 for a DJ. You are orchestrating these people’s V.I.P experience; in a nightclub it’s all about that experience. Whereas tonight’s show is, “I’m going to see this DJ, this producer, this artist….” right? It’s like I was saying, it’s a very exciting space for me.

Some people claim there is more support or unity within the DJ community than there is within the hip hop/rapper community…Do you agree?

Definitely, because it’s the nature of the two different things, right?. The nature of hip hop in a lot of ways has a layer of competition in there; there’s a layer of battle. Then, there is the rap game in itself, where the rap industry’s model is: rap is a competitive sport. The other side of that, what you’re saying is the dance world, and it’s P.L.U.R! Peace, love, unity, respect; P.L.U.R bro! And, I need that. P.L.U.R is a concept for a reason; people say that shit for a reason. I’m definitely drawn more to good vibes than to bullshit. I’d rather be in a real cool vibey situation than a room full of stare downs without even acknowledging that it’s a stare down. It is what it is, though. You take the good with the bad. Jay-Z said it: “If, you grow up with holes in your zapatos, you’d celebrate the minute you was having dough.” [Referencing Jay-Z’s song 99 Problems.]

Do you think, if there was more competition within the DJ community, it would make for better or more quality DJs?

Nah, it would just make for more assholes. Trust me. I come from a really competitive space. What really would come from that is just a whole bunch of assholery that I could easily deal without. I love the camaraderie on this side and the peaceful vibes. A lot of my rap-based homies that come with me to festivals will look around and go, “Yo, I feel so at ease right now!” As oppose to, where we would normally be at, you wouldn’t feel at ease. I mean, the unease wouldn’t stop you from being there, you still go.  But, you know…

How do you keep the younger generations interested in following you–the people that might not know you or anything about your previous work and the people that may not be as eager to learn about you?

Well, honestly, I can’t control that. All I can do is put out music that I feel is a statement that comes from me, and it’s honest as a reflection of what I’m feeling. Then, I just let the chips fall, where they may. I can’t worry, I won’t worry about what a young kid, or old dude, or whoever is thinking about. It doesn’t even come to my mind. If you worried about that then you’re not really taking advantage of the title “artist”. When you say, ‘I’m an artist’, you don’t give a shit–you CAN’T. Just make music that you can stand behind, right? And, that’s it.

Do you go into a show with a predisposed mindset, or do you let it flow with each show that you do?

You know, I definitely let it flow. There’s obviously go-to records that I have, that I create for different types of crowds. But, also as a DJ there is the “read the crowd” element, like ‘okay, I need to switch up a bit… They’re falling off a bit.’ But, then, in this new space I think what actually overpowers that is being an artist. You sometimes have to turn of the DJ switch of “make the crowd go crazy at every cost”; but, what can’t happen is you can’t, you shouldn’t make the crowd go crazy at the cost of you playing your own shit. I have mentally had to turn that off, because I’ve found myself playing everyone else’s records all night and I’m not playing my shit, because I’m not confident in it. And, I just had to say, ‘look man, this is part of the reason why I’m here… because of my songs!’ I just started putting it out and playing it, getting more confident with it, finding spaces to play it, and not caring what anybody thinks of it.

Is there any artist (vocal, producer, DJ) you see yourself collaborating with as we close in on 2014?

Yeah man! I’ve got some cool things in the works. There’s this one with Riff Raff and ASAP Rocky. That’s going to be fun. I’ve got some things coming your way.

If you could give one piece of advice to anyone trying to follow your footsteps, what would you say?

Dare to be different. You can’t be the next x,y,z. You have to be the first YOU. Anyone who ever made it was never a carbon copy. You can be influenced–everyone is influenced, but at the end of the day they are solely them. There’s that, and then you better have some drive. YOU BETTER DRIVE. Hard work beats talent, when talent aint working hard. Period. Creativity, originality, drive and ambition; that’s it.

Skrillex Live at Red Rocks

One of the biggest musical events of this year didn’t happen at a festival. It didn’t happen in a club and it certainly didn’t happen on a boat. One of the biggest spectacles in electronic music this year came from one of the biggest performers at one of the most beautiful venues in the entire world.

Throughout 2014, Skrillex embarked on his world-wide Mothership Tour hitting incredible cities and unbelievable venues all over the globe. None of those shows, however, could match the majesty and wonder of Red Rocks — Sonny’s “favorite venue in the world.” One of the only natural amphitheaters in the world, Red Rocks sits right outside Denver and has been the go-to spot for music lovers and artists alike.

Naturally, the showman that is Skrillex made the most of his time at Red Rocks; implementing some of the most high-tech and expansive audio and visual technologies, Sonny and his crew put on one of the  most amazing nights in dance music history for a lucky crowd of over 94 thousand lucky fans.

Playing artists like, Moody GoodDiplo, What So Notand many, many more, Skrillex’s all-encompassing set was simply out of this world. And now, we get to relive the entire show thanks to Live Nation and Blood Company. Enjoy!

Solidisco

T’was an early Sunday morning in the beautiful city of New York, when a few of Moodswing‘s artists boarded a coach bus heading straight to the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT for an end of the summer pool party. There was a bit of TWRK on the bus along with a splash of Brenamar club, and even some disco and funk from the guys of Solidisco. Despite everyone’s depleted energy level from a day of good music, company and beaming sun rays, Run The Trap got to learn a little bit more about Matt and Don, their craft and where they’re headed.

 

How does it feel to be recognized as a part of the movement for the current disco era?

Well, we’ve never really heard anyone say that, so it feels pretty good if you think that’s how it is! There’s not a ton of people doing what we do, so it feels good to try and be one of the few groups helping to keep disco alive. A lot of people are doing music which is classified as nu-disco, and people like Chromeo are obviously killing it but that’s more funk to us and not really disco. We use a lot of elements from original disco music that those groups don’t necessarily use.

You guys played a flawless set at the Mohegan Sun. How did you both master the art of letting each other shine but still translating out one cohesive sound when together?

That question makes what we do sound really complicated (laughter). We both know what a ‘Solidisco DJ set song’ should be, so song choice is pretty obvious for us at this point. We know immediately when we hear a song if it’s going to be something we will play or not. As far as performing goes, it’s pretty simple. Matt will do one mix then Don gets the next one. Sometimes we do some crazy stuff off the cuff that involves more than two hands, but we’ve been DJing together long enough to know what needs to be done without anything needing to be said.

What do you guys prefer to spin on: CDJS or Vinyls?

For what we do as Solidisco, nothing can beat CDJs at this point. We walk up, plug in our SD cards, and we’re ready to go in 30 seconds. Dealing with computers and serato just adds too many variables for stuff to go wrong in our sets; from computer crashes, to vinyls warping at a pool party like this one because of heat; a lot can go wrong. Pioneer really nailed it with the CDJ-2000 Nexus, it does everything we’ve needed from CDJs without having to use a computer or any midi controllers (like dicers/X1/etc). The CDJs and mixer all talk to each other well and Rekordbox doesn’t suck anymore as much as it used to, so we’re pretty content with all our Pioneer setup.

When it comes to genres like big room or house or disco, songs are usually played out longer than say jersey club, trap, hip-hop etc. How do you guys keep the attention of a crowd that constantly needs music to be mixed every 20 seconds?

The Mohegan Sun was pretty laid back so we let stuff drag out a little longer than usual because that was the vibe of the party, but usually we are moving just as fast as those guys. We started out DJing open-format sets and we played hip-hop for years and looked up to guys like AM, so we know how to move really fast. We also have lots of bootlegs that we make that use non-disco vocals over some of our songs to keep things fresh for the crowd.

What’s the difference for you guys to play in say a club like Cielo vs. this pool party?

Kinda what we said earlier, but also we’ll play some songs at a pool party type show that are a little ‘chiller’ that we wouldn’t necessarily play in a club. To us (especially since we played early in the day) today was about hanging out in cabanas and sipping Ciroc (Diddy, where’s our sponsorship). So our goal wasn’t to get people jumping around and crowd surfing. But when you put us on a system like the one at Cielo, we’re not going to be playing around. We’ll be going hard on the disco/funky bangers all night. Totally different vibe.

How did this pool party even come about?

It was thrown as an ‘end of summer’ pool party for a bunch of artists on our management group Moodswing. Us, Twrk and Brenmar are all on Moodswing, and then they invited some friends (Skeet/Jillionaire) to come play too.

You have played along some dope DJs, who all have very different styles than yourselves. Does that intimidate/motivate you guys in any way either positively or negatively?

I wouldn’t call it intimidating, but it definitely does make our job harder. On one hand it’s difficult for us because it makes sense for those guys to do a trap/jersey/twerk remix of a top 40 hip-hop song. So, all those DJs can come out the gate with a Drake remix where right off the bat you engage the crowd and have girls who love Drake dancing and everyone singing the words to widely popular songs. We can’t really do that and stay true to our sound, so it definitely takes more time for us to set the vibe and get people into what we are about. On the other hand, everyone else playing similar styles helps us stand out more and makes our sets more memorable because our sound is ‘different’ than what people are used to hearing.

Do you ever get the fear of losing core fans if you ever decided to step outside the realms of disco and experiment with new sounds?

Yeah, we always have that discussion at some point while making a song. “Is this us?” is a question that comes up a lot. We don’t consider ourselves strictly “disco”. We think we have a pretty big variety in our library. Sometimes we do nu-disco stuff that we consider more 80′s and funk based than being necessarily disco. We also really like freestyle music and have a couple songs that are heavily based on that. It’s more a process of making sure our songs make you feel a certain vibe rather than having to “sound disco.”

 

What has been the highest point of your careers so far? 
Playing main stage at Hard day of the dead last year was huge for us, and getting our relationship with Ultra going earlier this year with our EP are definitely the two biggest.

What’s the number one thing you want all of your fans to take home with them after one of your shows?

I guess our goal would be to see people having a great time and dancing their asses off to a genre of music that they wouldn’t usually expect to enjoy at a house/dance/EDM show. We try to bring that big room/festival energy level to our sets, while also applying it to our original sound.

Any advice for future DJs and producers?

Finding your own sound is key and then putting in the hours necessary to make it work is even more important. It takes a lot of time to become unique, but it takes WAY longer to take what makes you unique and figure out a way to present it in a way that people will be able to enjoy and relate to.
