Premiere: RVLVR – Shadows (Dev79 Remix)

Philly has been translating Grime into North American listening for years now. Better know as Street Bass there should be no quarrel in the city’s occupying Bass Muisc’s forefront as we know it to this day. Bass Music alongside pure underground of the coast and continent is affirmed more now by online copywrite laws being enforced to the degree in which it is today. Labels like these and their counterparts who’ve survived to this day, bringing original production and true genre creation are once again to be the curators of future music. Bass or otherwise.

Out today on such a label, on New Low‘s catalog is Philly based RVLVR’s ‘Shadow’s’ EP. Featuring two new originals and remixes from Dev79 (Seclusiasis) and Bombé (New Low). In the spirit of education, musics longevity outside of Doritos and promotion we are proud to premiere of quarter of the release. An original twist from Dev79 on RVLVR’s title track turned half a beat more Grime/Philly from the originals climatic space battle ambiance. Listen to the whole EP on Bandcamp and do the follow thing for both these artists.

Premiere: Miguel – Coffee feat. Wale (Slow Graffiti Edit)

The edit put on this oozes deep feelings of connection with a boo over purple clouds. All your thoughts and sentimental feelings pressed with all the affluence and care you could ask for in one three minute some odd package. ‘Coffee’ as a title falls somewhat short of what your about to hear but it’s one you’ll remember. #SoVibrant Slow Graffiti backing Miguel HARD. Free download for the masses.

Premiere: Prinze George – Upswing (Dinesh & LioBeats Remix)

For all the reasons we fell in love with an early Flume, is why we fell in love with NYC’s Prinze George’s latest remix received. Punching through and between the originals vocals with huge bursts of triumph Dinesh & LioBeats keep the listener rocking with the Future sounds of our time. Daft Punk’s ‘Robot Rock’ lingers in the back of one’s mind while listening, to a degree. Light drum builds into just as hard glitching hits as the track progresses are a stairway into an affirmation of believing the future is now, and while life isn’t always fair, anything is possible. The track is available for free download for a time. You can listen and compare the original and check the rest of Prinze George’s self titled EP HERE.

Bridge – Roll My Weed feat. ScHoolboy Q (Dave Luxe Remix)

On Modern Filths official remix compilation appears non other than Montreal’s Dave Luxe. Having a reputation of remixing works into sultry, bedroom boo wooing tunes, you can expect Dave Luxe to have done just this. Draw the curtains and pour up some caviare, n’ get the papers ready.

Premiere: Lil Wayne – Bitches Love Me (Filthy Romeo Remix)

Hot on the heals of the Lil Wayne & Young Thug “beef” Vancouver based duo Filthy Romeo add one to the fire. One of Wayne’s better tracks as his career began to decent, basically as soon as he took up skateboarding. But let’s not forget his music up to that point, like Wizzy Khalifa his prime was before his success. And compared to Young Thugs year of most features, Lil Wayne’s year of features lyrically surpassed in huge strides. Baring these things in mind, just enjoy a little revitalization of a very quashed on career. Filthy Romeo = Konrad Old Money & Unkle Ricky.

WERK – Throw Up Your P’s And Q’s

Still believed to be one of the most forward thinking in Grime from our province by this two thumb haver is, Victoria based WERK. His debut EP through MalLabel Music last year has been making it’s way onto the cloud in pieces, the latest being this dirty lil number. The EP in whole is served up on Bandcamp as a whole supper 😉

It being Victoria there’s no better time to get familiar with this valid Victorian. And what better way than a handful of his contributions to the High Noon Artist Pact.

Herobust – Skurt Reynolds

Fuuuurq. UMM loud. Think of the last thing (could be anything) that out did itself repeatedly, over and over like 5 times. Then think of how it did what it did. Then hit play ‘Skurt Reynolds’ . ^^ Then, pull yourself up on the floor and repeat play.

Ghost Loft – The Otherside (HVNS Remix)

Too bad really that Mother’s Day has past us by for another year. This would have been the best taste of future music to blast down the block as you pull into her driveway with a bundle of flowers. The volume of the music not so much being the statement, but the volume of “feels” billowing through the windows. The feels.

From: Me to you.
Produced by LA based HVNS

Kartell – All I Have feat. J – Rican

Through the label under is own personal oversee Parisian Kartell has released a new one. As per usual, his unusually aloof way of gently swishing his mastery of the most OG chilling tracks into your dome piece is in full effect. The single comes from what is said to be a six track EP entitled ‘Tender Games’ . #RocheMusique

Butler & Bontan – Live My Life feat. Vula

Paroozing through the tube of you and through the music’s of circa 08, many an old school name came up. Including that of the beloved Basement Jaxx. Amongst the freshest of the fresh to this day. This merits mention, not just because of Vula’s soulFULL presence on the track before you now. But also by the undeniably UK House lain down by Butler & Bontan for the all together Ultra Music release.

WMNSTUDIES X WASPY – Photographs feat. Sundays

We’re now given part two of what appears to be a ongoing collaboration between two of Vancouver’s most active. Waspy of DiRTY RADiO is of a collaborative mind working also with Blontron, together forming B&W, or course DiRTY RADiO, and now with WMNSTUDIES. It certainly shows versatility and skill in all directions. This collaboration, and the one before it, are notable lighter than the studiers of womens works alone.. it’s clear who is bringing what to the table for an all round four minutes of positive vibes.

Epic Empire – O.Y.S feat. LikeBerry

Two limited download offerings from Parisian Epic Empire. The first, ‘O.Y.S’ is such a cool breeze. A perfect love song in the morning accompanied by perfect percussion. Highly stoked onnit. The second, ‘Iris’ is larger in the Future degree and perhaps best taken in as your about to push into your run or workload. It could be said the vibes of the two tracks are 180 degrees out of phase 😉 Git the downloads while they last! Links included on each stream.
