You can enter to win a pair of tickets here on Facebook as well as another pair here on Twitter.
Bro Safari & UFO! – Burn The Block (Original Mix)
Bro Safari is one of the most consistent trap producers out there, and he really earned his spot in our top 15 trap tracks of 2012 chart for his track Scumbag that samples Biggie’s Suicidal Thoughts. Bro Safari continues to show respect for the Notororious B.I.G. in his latest production with UFO! Burn The Block. The collaboration features another sample from Biggie that goes “start stacking… gun packing,” lyrics from the ’97 record Sky’s The Limit, as well as Tony Montana from Scarface saying “You gotta make the money first.” You can download this banger for free on his SoundCloud, along with many other releases. Also, see the music video below produced by Thump.
Brown & Gammon – The Combination (Original Mix) [Circus]
The UK’s Brown & Gammon have been experimenting with the trap sound in their new track The Combination. Coming from a dubstep background, the duo gave this track plenty of that UK sound; the dubbed-out beat and the euphoric vocals combine wonderfully with the uplifting strings, making for quite the suspenseful breakdown. This sets up perfectly for the filth it dives back into that includes samples from Wu Tang’s C.R.E.A.M. It’s been recently featured as part of the Circus Two compilation presented by Cookie Monsta and Funtcase.
UZ – Trap Shit V16 (Original Mix)
UZ has become an unstoppable leading force in the trap game. The masked icon has his own style as both a producer and a DJ, and he’s hands-down one of the most skilled out there. Experimenting once again in the studio, he’s just dealt a free download for his fans labeled Trap Sh*t V16, another fresh beat that “keeps it trill,” while definitely leaning more toward the chill side of the genre. Get it on his SoundCloud.
K Theory – Walk With Me (Original Mix) [K Theory]
Although it begins rather calmly, Walk With Me by K Theory gets down and dirty. The San Francisco duo packed this track with as much dark energy as it could wield, with big room melodies that take you up high before plunging down into nasty bass. Be sure to support this epic release by purchasing it here on Beatport.
Snails – Shawty (Original Mix)
Keep tabs on Snails! This outstanding producer is making some of the most unique beats out there today and is steadily creeping his way up. Although this track in particular, Shawty, may not be brand new, it deserves extra attention and is the reason why I’m so excited for the release of his debut Magnet EP due on the 28th of May. The experimentation here is what really gets me: Its drop is practically psychedelic in the way it plays with sound. A must-download indeed. Download it here free, along with his other work.
