Have Ü heard? Amidst a marathon 24-hour DJ set, Jack U unexpectedly dropped one of the most sought after albums of 2015, and it is absolute fire… even the Justin Bieber track. I could’ve easily posted the entire album here, but somewhere between listening to To Ü and Jungle Bae on repeat I managed to source five more of my favourite tracks of the week for you lucky folks. This week’s Trap Tuesdays features tracks from both Skrillex and Diplo’s respective labels and more new trap music!
San Holo – We Rise (Original Mix) [NEST]
We Rise is packed full with irresistible melodies and an incredibly uplifting vocal. NEST HQ hit the nail on the head when they tagged it #VictoryBass. This song makes you feel like you just won Takeshi’s Castle or something.
Club Mega – G&T (Original Mix)
Fresher than post-tennis gin and tonic, Club Mega’s chill beat is sure to catch you off guard just as you think its coming to a halt. Looking forward to hearing more from this trio.
Whipped Cream – Unconditional (Original Mix)
Fresh from all-female label Unspeakable Records comes Unconditional, a hard-hitting, bass-heavy banger that was spawned from Whipped Cream’s love for Diplo.
Drill Drill – Bloodclat (Original Mix)
I absolutely love the dub groove and impeccable sample work in this song, which is well worth a listen or eight. This German duo brings something totally fresh to the table–I suspect it won’t be long until the careers of group members Yunis and Grapes skyrocket.
Boaz Van De Beatz feat. Ronnie Flex & Mr. Polska – Partymad (Original Mix) [Mad Decent]
If the Jack U album wasn’t enough, this is sure to quench your thirst. Boaz’ early tracks are an undeniable inspiration to Skrillex and Diplo’s latest side project, and Partymad is no different–it’s an explosive offering that still manages to get you in the feels.
