Here's a new weekly column by Momo Guzman, aka AYECH, a local producer who strives to keep his finger on the pulse of the EDM scene. Every Monday, he'll be bringing us new sounds from the world of electronic dance music, so be sure to check it out!
Yolanda Be Cool - Afro Nuts (DCUP Mix)
Yolanda Be Cool has a very traditional style, and fused with a mix from DCUP, this track is a great song to party to. You may know DCUP from some of their other releases, like everyone's favorite "We No Speak Americano."
Wamdue Project - King Of My Castle (Chuckie Mutfakta EDC Edit)
Chuckie always has something up his sleeve. By fusing one of his original tracks, "Mutfakta," and "King Of My Castle" by Wamdue Project, he produced an excellent release.
Monument - Coma (Original Mix)
Monument may be young but he knows how to rock a big crowd. His music is very high energy and will keep you moving. If you ever have the privilege to attend his live set, you'll be in for a treat--his performance is one you won't forget.
Untold - Motion The Dance
This track is very different and stands out in its genre. Please be very open to the track and give it a chance. You don't come across artists like this that often.
Eskmo -"Cloudlight" (Ninja Tune, 2010) [track clip]
A very moist and airy track. Complex but simple, so to speak. Eskmo has always been one of my favorite producers. Make sure you follow up on upcoming tracks--you'll never be let down by the production quality.
Jakwob - Electrify
This UK based producer/ DJ has been in the scene strong for quite a while now. This track is very well put together and has plenty of space to give it a full sound. Check out the official video as well.
AYECH - Supreme Trap ft. Danny Brown
This track has a mixture of trap-style, moombahton, and \dubstep. Danny Brown is a Detroit-based MC that is making his way up the charts and into the ears of many listeners. I feel that this track is very different and has potential to grab a lot of people's attention.
RL Grime - Trap On Acid
Residing in New York, RL Grime is on his grind when it comes to his music. Trap music is being dropped more frequently in clubs and festivals now. These hi-hats are deadly, and combined with that bass, you just want to ride slow with your windows down and some 20 inch subs in the trunk, blasting this track.
Alunageorge - You Know You Like It (Bondax Remix)
This collaboration between Bondax and Alunageorge is phenomenal. The track has that bounce/hop feel to it, and it's also very catchy. The drop they used was not expected, but was well placed. I could listen to this song all day.
Nadastrom - i!!
Nadastrom is made up of two amazing producers/djs. Many say that Dave Nada and Matt Nordstrom are the pioneers of moombahton. This track has a lot of personality, and is spreading quick.
Tyga - Lap Dance (JWLS Bootleg)
JWLS is a scientist when it come to producing. His selection of sounds and samples are amazing, and the quality of his tracks are outstanding, both sound and structure-wise. He using the song "Lap Dance" by Tyga very well in this remix.
Zedd - Spectrum (feat. Matthew Koma)
German producer and DJ Zedd has been at it for a while, producing these high energy tracks. He also does a great live performance. This release is very melodic--almost like it was made for Matthew Koma's amazing voice. Check out more music from Matthew HERE.
Porter Robinson - Language
19 year old Chapel Hill, NC producer/DJ Porter Robinson is making a big name for himself in the EDM scene. He is so consistent when it come to making his bangers. I can't wait to see what he comes up with next.
Valentino Khan - Bob Duato (Original Mix)
Valentino Khan is a Producer from LA that is highly talented in several genres. He has produced music for hip hop artists B.o.B, T.I., and 2 Chainz. He also has EDM releases on Mad Decent. This track has a simple style to it with a lot of movement going on, making it a very solid Dubstep production.
Diplo and Nicky Da B - Express Yourself (Cobra Krames and Yamez Rmx)
Bringing that New Your Club style to "Express Yourself," these two producers went and did this track justice. There are several remixes to this song but this one stuck out the most. Be sure to come out to RVALUTION on June 26th with KRAMES & Doddie to show some love and support for such talented individuals.
