HAPPY NEW YEAR AND ALL THAT JAZZ. SERIOUSLY THOUGH, 2015 IS GONNA BE LARGE.
SOMETHING LARGE. OK SO LET'S START OFF THE YEAR RIGHT WITH SOMETHING MASSIVE. for the record, I think 2015 is going to be the year of deep house, if that isn't apparent already, but ya'll know I love some festival trap so that's what we're going with. I'm gonna go ahead and drop Meaux Green's "Grindin On Acid" on ya. This is a ridiculous festival trap anthem, a classic IMo. Really look up to Meaux for his cray production chops--elite sound design coupled with pristine low-end sub, kick and bass.
SOMETHING ALSO LARGE. We're gonna get to a chill track and two deep ones so chill for a minute, but while we're at trap city let's get our fill. Going with an epic 7Million play Festival destroyer for this one, RL Grime and What So Not's Massive track "Tell me." Both of these guys are some of the best producers in the game, really two of my favorites. RL Grime also brings a ton of productivity to the table, as he DJ/Produces as Clockwork, his Electro-house/edm project. BONUS - CHECK OUT BAAUER'S INSANE EDIT OF TELL ME.
SOMETHING ALSO LARGE, YET CHILL. I think most everyone can dig this track, a birght, trappy remix of Lilly Wood & the Prick and Robin Schulz's "Prayer in C," by DJ Katch. Not sure what's with all the names in this track (it only seems like one singer), but dope nonetheless. Very Katchy, DJ Katch (I'm sure he's pretty tired of hearing that.)
SOMETHING DEEP. LET's GET to the deep stuff now. Deep house, future house, whatever you want to call it, is really taking over in a lot of ways right now. I guess the best way I can describe it is like throwback tracks to 90s house (drums, minimalism, low octave soul vocalists) but with "future sounding" instruments and sounds. If that makes sense. Anyway, this is my jam since We produce deep/future house stuff atm. Anyway, here it is...a perfectly executed deep house slice by Ennui called "Cleaning Up." Bang bang.
SOMETHING DEEPer. Moving on to something a bit deeper and more soulful (more of the throwback vibe I mentioned), This is Disciples with "They Don't Know." I Love the groovy bassline on This track--it's guaranteed to have you singing the lyrics and vibing on out. They think I Want it, but they don't know...
