J Dilla vibes for this, it short but sweet!
A couple of new tracks from Kid Froopy! We particularly love the Terror Jr remix! Enjoy!
Having already written with Justin Bieber (‘Purpose’) and co-written/produced the platinum selling ‘In the Name of Love’ by Martin Garrix and Bebe Rexha, 18 year old producer Steve James is doing it for himself this time with fiery ‘Warrior’. With powerful vocals courtesy of LIGHTS this song is big big big. Not only is it an absolute treat for the ears but it will also make you feel like you can kick some ass. Enjoy.
RØMANS back with an absolute smash. ‘Love Is The Beast’ perfectly showcases RØMANS as an artist; showing him off as a singer, songwriter and producer. The track started as a beat for Kanye and when it wasn’t used he decided to take it for himself…and thank goodness he did. There are so many things to love about this track; from the soaring melody to the distorted vocals and the slick interjections from rising British rapper Avelino.’
2016 saw Thugli release one of their biggest bootlegs to date, a remix of rapper Desiigner’s hit ‘Panda’ which is now on close to 7 million combined plays on Youtube. 2017 is about to kick off strong with the release of a new single, ‘Cold Winter’ featuring Australia’s Bea Moon on vocals with a full EP to follow. Its looking to be a big year for the duo and its only just begun!
Undeniable talent here from 19 year old Australian producer, Swindail. A very catchy song with production that takes elements from different genres to create something brand new. The chorus groove is unlike anything thats out there. It’s no surprise that Swindail has already received the seal of approval from both Skrillex and Diplo.
So happy to have Vanilla back with some brand new beats. Usually we only have to wait a year before he drops another album. This time round we had to wait an extra 3 months. Not sure how we managed. This time round its a bit smoother and less soulful. Nothing wrong with that at all.
One of my early favourites of ‘Moonlight’ is this great flip of Michael McDonald’s ‘I Keep Forgettin’. Vanilla’s signature tight production is there in full force as he turns the original groove well up with that punchy vocal and guitar.
Looking forward to digging into the rest of the album and discovering which sampled gems are hidden there. Something to distract me from endlessly wondering (and googling) ‘who the hell is Vanilla‘!

Huge vibes with the latest remix of 4AM by Huntar. Featuring not one, but two killer verses from American rapper iLoveMakonnen. This was already a great song before ILoveMakonnen jumped on board. So slick, so sexy, so moody. I dare you to not love this.
And below, a little exclusive clip especially for you guys! Enjoy!
The best news in this overflowing river of bad news is that Tuxedo are back in business! Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One have dropped a short and sweet EP of their signature boogie bangers. We love the title track ‘Fux With The Tux’ (obviously) but at the same time we can’t resist a good old slow jam. So here is the hot ‘July’. Check out the whole EP.
Nice bit of future bass here from Big Wild. Builds up to the drop which lands with nice synth twinkling keeping things light. Smattering of the Future Classic / Wave Racer sound with disco house flavour.
