So here by request are some recommendations of what I’ve been listening to since Donald released his last project, STN MTN/Kauai in October 2014. I tried to break it up by genre and idgaf if you don’t agree with how I classify shit.  I know most Gambino fans aren’t conventional rap fans. some are track names and some are albums. things italicized are albums that I highly recommend. Again, this just goes to show how much is out there to listen to. this is just a jumping off point. I just did a sliver of hiphop, if you click the read more you can also get my alternative and electronic recommendations.

TITLE: Dreams of an Absoulution (Aesthetical Dub)

ARTIST: DJ Chidow and Myūjikku

I know I shared a very similar remix to this not long ago, but I really wanted to share the other one as soon as possible! Once again, this an instrumental, funk, house, disco-esque remix of “Dreams of an Absolution” based on the music of the 1980′s. While this one is shorter and a little more straight forward than the previous one from the same artist, it’s still pretty awesome! How can you ever go wrong with this?

Download it here.
Again, no minimum required. You can get the song for free, but we strongly urge you donate some money and support these musicians.

Kaskade’s sure to be timeless melodic epic, Disarm You, featuring Ilsey, gets a voraciously intoxicating work over by mysterious production act Slushii. The trap remix carries the bright playfulness of Shawn Wasabi alongside its engaging trap drops and nightcore like pixie enchantment. Download the fully disarming, vibrantly staggering remix for free, here.

Astronomyy just keeps going from strength to strength… Following last year’s delightful single “Somethin About U” and his dreamy reworking of Billie Eilish’s “Ocean Eyes”, the Worcestershire based singer/songwriter/producer (who recently signed a publishing deal with Sony ATV) has shared “The Secret”. In a similar vein to its predecessor, the track encompasses a club-ier vibe whilst keeping in lieu with Astronomyy’s signature jungle-surf aesthetic. Listen up!

March 11th is going to be a very fine day. Not only will Crywolf be making his San Francisco live show debut at Popscene, but Australian duo Vallis Alps will be bewitching me with their minimalist electronic pop music as well. In anticipation of the magnificent night, and because this is one killer remix, let’s get lost together in Feki’s remix of Vallis Alps’ Young. The producer, also from Australia, gives Young a sparkling atmospheric and grandly haunting future bass treatment. He’s created a shifting, rippling experience whose gossamer texture reminds me of a candle flame, softly flickering in a dark room, generating ever changing shapeless shadows all around. Feki’s remix is a breathtaking and cinematic experience, deeply ruminative, yet so tranquil and soothing. Download the track for free, here.

MitiS shows us how beautiful and mellifluous bass music can be with his new single, Foundations, which features gorgeous vocals by Adara. The Philadelphia based producer, whose roots lie in classical piano, combines those background skills with his melodic dubstep prowess to craft a soaring, uplifting anthem in Foundations. The rhapsodic flight of grandeur is a free download, here.

The first time I heard this incredible track by MitiS I pretty much feel in love as its melodic dub step at its finest, honestly you will not find anything better than this and thats a fact. The track is called Foundations featuring the vocals of Adara and features so many things that just make this track absolutely fantastic in every way possible. It has these soaring pure vocals that help create this epic atmosphere, then you’ve got this incredible build that just gets you majorly excited for what’s to come and then you’ve got a drop that can only be described as a masterpiece, its just sheer perfection. This is a track you need to add to your party playlist as it is certain to get the room buzzing with excitement and ready for a killer night out - Jakk
