STING COVER

We’ve got some heat coming at you for our newest premiere. This time Willy Joy teamed up with Buku to bring us ‘Sting.’ The first track off their forthcoming ‘Leaner and Meaner’ EP which will be out for free download next month. In addition to the EP release, the two will be hitting up 13 cities together over the course of the next three months, aptly named ‘The Leaner and Meaner Tour.’

When you combine forces with Willy Joy and Buku, whose production talent spans between a few genres, it is no surprise that ‘Sting’ hits as hard as it does. ‘Sting’ leads with a looming intro into a drop that is dominated by a rolling bassline that almost buzzes through the entire track. ‘Sting’ combines bass, snares and hi-hats into a track that pushes all sorts of boundaries.  I expect this one to go off when it’s dropped live.

The homie Stratus has had a big year releasing 2 EPs and a slew of dope singles so it’s only natural that he would hit us with completely fire guest mix just in time to get spooky-weird for Halloween. To top it all off, San Franciscans (San Franciconites? Fran San Friscans?) will be able to catch Stratus at 1015 Folsom (one of my favorite casual nightclubs) on 10/30 at the Rusko show alongside Just A GentPatrick Reza and more… despite the San Francisco Giants’ miserable performance against the Royals in KC (my Dodgers ****ing suck so I was rooting for a game 7!) Check out Stratus’ mix below and if you’re in the bay area looking for a good time on 10/30, make sure to swing by 1015 Folsom to catch Rusko and Stratus live!

Whoever said turntablism is dead, never asked DJ Craze his opinion on the manner. In his newest youtube upload, he performs a three minute doozy of a turntable routine, putting his own live remix on the DJ Snake remix of ‘New Slaves’ by Kanye West.

The video kicks off by showing a slew of “DJs” like DJ Pauly D, Paris Hilton, even Steve Aoki as DJ Craze watches, unimpressed. He then takes the decks, and shows us his thing.  Words don’t do it justice. I’ll let the decks speak for themselves

‘Cerebral Eclipse’ the highly anticipated album from Chicago based producer Manic Focus has finally been released. It boasts collaborations with names such as Griz, Dominic Lalli and even some verses from fast rising rapper ProbCause.

unnamed (7)

The ten track album begs for multiple listens. Each track is laced with intricate sound design and beautifully chopped up vocals that reveal themselves layer by layer after each close listen. Each sound is perfectly placed within the album with a purpose, and as you listen, each sonic layer is revealed, giving you Cerebral Eclipse in its entirety.

From the rolling synth line on ‘We Can Fly’ to the distorted vocal sample on ‘Trail Blazin’ Manic Focus has set himself up for success with his newest 10 track release.

Manic Focus didn’t slow down at all in 2014, and I don’t expect him to look back one bit in his huge upcoming 2015.

PicMonkey CollageWhat a time to be alive. Sydney future bass pioneer Wave Racer and Norway producer Lido have, at some point in the past, teamed up in the studio to produce a massive collaboration with almost too many smooth future vibes to contain. As you’ll see from the live Wave Racer footage below, the unreleased track contains obvious influences from both artists which we couldn’t be more happy about. From an exclusive RTT Wave Racer interview coming soon(!), we’ve got confirmation that this amazing record is slated to be released sometime in the near future.

With out latest Too Future mix, we present to you an exclusive set from San Holo, a Dutch artist who has put his stamp on the future scene at an incredible pace. Two months ago he released his debut EP COSMOS on Heroic Recordings, drawing attention from all major promotional outlets and blogs. Last week he dropped his ‘Eminem – Lose Yourself’ remix off his ‘Don’t Touch The Classics’ series, where he remixes classic tunes – like Dr. Dre’s – The Next Episode, and others of that stature. Frankly, they are sounding mighty fine, with a signature future twist and his ever recurring ‘swirl’ vocal sample.

And things are looking big for him, with an Australian tour in the making, remixes for Point Point and Doja Cat, and support of Diplo & Friends, Yellow Claw and GANZ, San Holo has been turning heads.

For those of you that produce, his label Heroic Recordings and himself are hosting a remix competition for his COSMOS EP, for which submissions are open until this Thursday. Winners score an official release on the pack, together with official mixes by GRMM and Thomas White.

Stream and download the set below… Give the man some love, repost the set and make sure to check him out on Soundcloud. Swirl.

One man’s pain is another man’s pleasure. After recent health problems resulting in the cancellation of all Avicii tour dates, 23-year-old Kygo filled in for the Swedish DJ, and boy are people excited. We have more than just a good feeling that Kygo, also known as Kyrre Gorvell-Dahll, is on the brink of an insanely awesome career explosion, but that’s easy to say for anyone who was already a fan.

He’s played at TomorrowWorld and just finished up his endless summer tourBillboard categorizes him as the, “[f]rat-boy good looks with surfer style”; leaders of the electronic-music cult including Diplo have cosigned his work; he’s in the process of recording for HBO’s Entourage; he scored one of the biggest record deals of 2014 in one-album deal with Ultra Records and Sony International; r&b singer The Weekend reached out for a remix; and, the kid hasn’t even dropped his album yet. Several classify his music as “tropical house” but, while majority of the songs on his Soundcloud indeed have that relaxed, summer beach house feel, the Norwegian producer doesn’t want that “sub-genre” to be the end all be all: “I want my music to be strong enough to reach beyond that,” he tells Billboard, “Coldplay doesn’t have to stay within a certain genre, they just go where they go.”

However, we already know where this is going to go. Kygo’s debut album–set to be released in April 2015–will not be billed as EDM but instead “global pop”. If it don’t make dollars, then it don’t make sense, so this album needs to be “accessible enough to draw in the ‘cool college kids as well as frat boys”, according to Ultra Records Founder Patrick Moxey.

Regardless of the genre his music is classified as, there is no doubt that Kygo will be crushing the game with his unmatched sounds. Out of all the songs on his cloud, only two have less than one million plays. His infamous Ed Sheeran “I See Fire” remix had a combined 43 Million plays between YouTube and Soundcloud. This 23-year-old producer/DJ has easily proven he will not be stopped. Checkout his BBC Guest Mix for Diplo & friends, if you haven’t already, and get a feel for this star before he fully explodes.

NY based Sweater Beats has been consistently killing the game with a slew of fresh reworks / originals and mixes, establishing himself as one of the top forward thinking producers in the game right now. Most recently his Flume x Chet Faker – Drop the game remix has garnered over 700k plays in less than a month, and he’s followed up with his stellar new ‘Cloud City EP’ scheduled to drop to the masses Tuesday 10/28 via HW&W Recordings.

In lieu of his new Ep release tomorrow, we’re giving you the exclusive early free download of the title track “Cloud City” for the next 24 hours before the release hits the masses. The title track is a stellar future bass original that transports me back to the likes of Rustie’s Glass swords. I’ve been rinsing this track on repeat since the stream was uploaded last week, so I’m stoked to give you all the early grab on this one.

Stream Sweater Beats – Cloud City below along with the full EP, and grab up that early free download of the title track below.

Scylla_2000WEDIDIT producer and trap kingpin RL Grime refuses to stop giving us reasons to by hyped for VOID, the Los Angeles DJ’s debut full-length album slated for release on November 17th. From the air horn-blaring single “Core”  to the R&B influenced How to Dress Well collab “Reminder,” the Grimey one has continued to impress us and raise expectations for his highly-anticipated LP. Now, the upward trend continues as we’re blessed with the album’s third single, “Scylla.” Whatever brass-heavy trap record you loved in the past – maybe it was “Higher Ground” or “Tell Me” – push that aside because RL just delivered on the next anthem. Not much more needs to be said, just blast this crazy joint below and get yourself pumped for VOID. Shout out to the ThisSongisSick dawgs for the track premiere.
