Here's the latest column from 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!
Ace Hood - We On (CRNKN REMIX)
If you haven't heard of CRNKN, you should check this 19 year old producer out. Coming out of the woodwork from New Hampshire, he has outdone many other producers. He's on the come-up and he's just getting started.
Justice - Helix (Lazerdisk Party Sex Remix)
Pres and ZJ have done it again. Justice has that original sound that is loved all over the world. By taking that and fusing it with the talent of Lazerdisk, you have a force that shouldn't be reckoned with.
Frank Lucano - Baila (Ckrono Rmx)
Yup, yup, yup! Ckrono has taken the track "Baila" by Frank Lucano and juked it out. Juke is a fast paced style of music that was was originated in Chicago in the club scene. Check out more of Ckrono's track on his Soundcloud.
Digi G'alessio - Zambra Funk ($LE$H rmx)
$LE$H was originally into the hip hop and drum and bass scene but has now changed up his approach. In the past few years he has made his way into the ears of many listeners for his unique style and sound. This track is one of my favorites personally.
Popeska - Everybody's Doing It
Literally everybody's doing it--trap is booming its way into the EDM scene, and one artist that knows what he's doing with it is Popeska. If you listen to the track you will hear several samples that you may be familiar with. Recycling is a great tool to catch the listener's attention.
Beatles - Come Together (An-Ten-Nae Remix)
The Beatles will never die. I love when I see artists pay tribute to them. The combination or the glitchy-ness and that bass give this track some extra flavor. Anything from An-Ten-Nae is great, so don't hesitate to check them out and download their tunes.
Kill Frenzy - Booty Clap
Thee bass on this track is off the charts. This will definitely make some booties clap in the club. Kill Frenzy has been very successful at being versatile with his releases. The switch-up on this track is track is dirty.
RudeeBeatz - The Movement (Original Mix)
Richmond's very own RudeeBeatz has been stirring up several releases for us to jam out to. This is one of his very own called "The Movement". He gets better and better with every track he produces. I can't wait to hear his album when it drops.
Crookers - Bust Dem Up
Crookers is always coming out with the catchiest tracks. "Bust Dem Up" is just one track off their Dr. Gonzo release. Those Dutch-style synths make you wanna jump around. The track speaks for itself.
Douster - Boom Shaka Laka // Bubble Pop
This track is a two in one. Both "Boom Shaka Laka" and "Bubble Pop" were released with Mad Decent. Douster is a genius when it comes to producing. I love the sounds of the bubbles popping on this track.
I'm bringing back an old favorite. SAINT has been in the scene for a while, and this track still competes with the tracks that are out today. That dancehall style and those natural drums give this track that rude sound.
AYECH - Bad Mothafucka
AYECH is known for fusing different genres together into one track. This track contains dubstep, glitch-hop, moombahton, and drum n' bass. It's rare to hear a drum n' bass track from him, but you may hear more in the near future. Stay tuned.
Hesk - Lost
Hesk is an underrated juke producer from Montréal. If you haven't heard of him, you should definitely check out his stuff. He is on the way to becoming a well known artist. In this track the sample is Gorilla Zoe's "Lost."
Congorock - Monolith
All I can say is wow. This build up is a must. You may have to restart the track and hear it again. This track has some Congorock congas in it as well. All of their tracks have their own specialties, and will keep your party moving in the right direction.
Midnight Conspiracy, Cenob1te - The Eye (Original Mix)
These guys are always throwing down hard. This track has so much energy, it's unreal. The remix by Invader will be out July 16th on Ultra Records. Make sure you come out to RVALUTION July 24th to see these guys in action.
