These dudes kill it. Straight out of Paris they have a more musically influenced production sound then most American producers. Using samples of real instruments opposed to bleeps and blops. Im really enjoying these guys lately. Its a beautiful sound. They haven't been releasing a lot of music until recently, I'll take remixes of other songs opposed to nothing so enjoy!
This mix is fire. If you like B.I.G then you'll dig this. Everybody and their Grandma has made some biggie remix but this mini mix is by far the dankest one I've peeped. If only he was still around to make new music. True shit right here. Just bump it. Thee Mike B...not sure about him but this site is about the music, not really the producer.
Sylvain Richard from the group C2C out of the UK has some of the most complex but simple dance music. The sounds he uses are not common with most producers. Its such an uplifting sound and an intriguing experience. His group C2C are quadruple DMC ( disco mix club) champions. These guys know what they're doing but this one guy in my opinion is the best. Can you dance to this?
Residing in Honolulu, this tropical trap is something easily vibed too. Headbanger and headsoothing depending on what track your checking out. He has a wide variety of originals. Hype to hella chill. I like the hype ones for what they are, but I can dig the slower chill ones too. Give him a scope if you caught the viybz.
Really not a whole lot of info on this guy, I know he's out of London and has some real creativity in the realms of production. I really dig the vocals he picks and how he chooses to arrange them. Trap influenced but also kinda a dreamy house and indie sound that goes together extremely well. Type of shit you blast and brush your teeth to in the morning...or at night.
From a small town called Lititz, Pennsylvania these high school friends have really came along way. Moving to Philly after signing with Fat Possum Records, they've got a catalog of music now. Blues, folk, and a rock n roll sound, Rob Grote reminds me of an early Caleb Followill (Kings of Leon) singing style. A raw and unfixed style of soulful, preachful singing. An overall solid rock n roll band, which are few and far in between now days.
If your using a Mac, type ALT + J. For all the pc users out there thus equals ∆. The delta sign is used for a number of things, also representing change or difference. They used to be called the films but that name had already been taken by an American band. I think in this case triangles are the bands favorite shape as told in one of the songs. This band holds an important part of my life and has done a lot for me. Alt -J is the sound of our generation. With beautiful singing, organic sounds, and layered percussion; this band has a truly unique vibe. Hella sexy, check it out.
Out of Oxford, these english gents know a thing or two about music. At first one may think its a guy or two behind a trigger board pressing buttons and singing. This is four piece alternative, r & b, psychedelic, and soul band that has released one album "Zaba." They produce these organic and danceable sounds that make it difficult not to want to start grooving. They have some Brian Wilson quality harmonies and beautiful synth sounds. Influences like Burial, Radiohead, and Flying Lotus.. They also played their first gig at the venue Radiohead played their first ever gig at. You should really just check it out, its some of the most interesting sounding stuff I've heard in a long time. They truly are original.
From NY these "hippies" are making a noise with there psychedelic, high energy, and low key flows. Their production and beats really got my attention the first couple times I checked them out. I find their earlier stuff to be not as polished vocally as the new stuff but thats usually how it goes and I personally like the earlier stuff a lot. Cold crush is an earlier track produced by Lex Luger (MMG's mastermind producer) and Take Your Place is brand new, dropped 4 days ago? Check out this new breed of hip hop.
Easily one of the hottest producers out right now, 18 year old Alex Crossan is producing hip hop influenced beats with tons of awesome percussion thats hella different. From the UK, he's worked with Ed Sheeran, Annie Mac, and Jaden Smith. Hopefully he can continue to be apart of this growing music industry. Young talent has the history of getting distracted..check out more from Mura Masa if interested.
Hella Chill is more low-key.
