Obligatory preface: I saw Jack Beats and AC Slater at Prime Boston this past Friday with some of the homies. It was excellent. They played some great deep bass jackin swag yolo house music, but I’ve been on this summertime-vibey-jersey-club-synth-heavy dance music… It’s like Mad Decent knows what I want to listen to at an given moment. The first few tracks in this week’s Soundcloud Roundup really go together, so listen closely.
This sound i’m obsessed with right now is really synth driven between 140 and 165BPM. So the Mad Recent release features 813 is from Russia… just goes to show the things I hear from Russia sometimes don’t involve Ukraine.
Even my good friend Jack, AKA ABSRDST, is getting a lot of attention with this kind of sound… big synth driven “Help me I’m Trapped In a 64-bit Color Video Game” kinda sound. This flip on Lindsay Lowend is quite phenomenal. (Featuring KK SLIDER HOLLA @ YR BOY).
And then there’s Cosmo’s Midnight doing one on Destiny’s Child… So synth.
Grimecraft remixed Cashmire Cat and also took KK Slider as a feature… Jams.
Moving on from the synth pop, Steve did this thing that would make those rave kids shuffle… watchyourself.
So in Main.Course news: a giant remix album.
Also new Snack at 100BPM trap, or twerk, whatever… MACE.
Chilling out, new one from Ducked Ape.
More chill house from Pomo ad his remix of Tinashe.
<a name=”geekboykreecha”></a>Geek Boy teams up with Kreecha in this funk disco collab.
So I just recently found out about Run The Jewels… These guys are great, El P and Killer Mike. This one with Big Boi. It’s a few months old, but their mixtape is free on Fool’s Gold.
Self titled tracks are the best.
Deep remix from Larse for Banks. I leave you with the deepest house.0
