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!
Styles&Complete - Bulls Gone Ratchet
Styles&Complete are best described as Dirty South hip hop infused EDM. In this track there are a lot of rock influences as well has hip hop. They both accent each other, which gives it a great balance. This is one of NC's top artists, so be sure to follow up on them if you like what you hear.
D!RTY AUD!O x Aylen feat. Jitta On The Track - Different Cities (Original Mix)
Off the bat this chord progression is amazing. D!RTY AUD!O usually produces electro, but lately has had a change of heart. Aylen has produced several bangers that you've probably heard in clubs all over, but this is one of his newest collaborations. Jitta On The Track drops a sick verse earlier in this track, which gives it that raw feeling. Let me know what you think in the comment section at the bottom of the article.
DJ Chuckie & Silvio Ecomo - Moombah (Afrojack Rmx - Munchi's Shoutout To Naffie VIP)
I knew Munchi was good, but wow, this is dope. Remixing a remix is something that you don't see everyday. Munchi is one of moombahton's most glorified producers, and has made a name for himself is the past few years.
Dirty South and Thomas Gold - Alive feat. Kate Elsworth (Lucky Date Bootleg)
Lucky Date has been selling out shows for a while now. This track is a remix of everyone's favorite, "Alive"by Dirty South and Thomas Gold. Grab the free download while you still can.
schlachthofbronx - That G String Track
This track has so much energy and is so catchy. It fools you at the beginning, and then it drops. It's like a combination of juke and Baltimore club music. I guarantee you'll remember it.
Chong-X - Chong's Not Here (Rafael Aragon RMX)
This is a remix of "Chong's Not Here" by Chong-X. This is what you get when you combine Bollywood and Moombahton. Rafael Aragon has been producing these mind-blowing tracks since 2011--imagine what he'll be able to accomplish this year.
Jaw Jam - Untitled
This 19 year old producer has always done things a little differently. I love these vocal samples and the clap rhythms. The synth lines flying around this track make me melt.
Marvin Gaye - Heard It Through The Grapevine (The Slag Remix)
After searching all night for a good remix, The Slag decided to make their own remix of Marvin Gaye's "Heard It Through The Grapevine. This is Tech-Funk at its best.
SWEATSON KLANK - My Love Is Here
This track has a nice swing to it. it's like the drums art cradling the rest of the track. I can really feel what SWEATSON was going for from the vocals alone. Those dub-influenced bass rhythms had me from the get-go.
Jeremy Glenn - New Life (Perseus 'Summer Of 83' remix) [Two Sev Refix]
Yes, NuDisco Moombahton is the way I would describe this. EDM comes in many forms, and this is just one of them. Two Sev is known to take a track and chill it out. Be open minded, and remember that not all EDM music is played in clubs.
Machines Don't Care - Beat Dun Drop (Top Billin Party Mix)
Top Billin are so underrated. If you haven't heard of these guys then you need to follow up. I love bringing artists on here that don't get that much publicity. This is a sold banger that will for sure have your party hyped.
M.I.A. - Bad Girls (Milangeles rmx)
I love the energy in this track. The BPM of this track is pretty high, but it's just fast enough to make you sweat and give your speakers a workout. M.I.A's lyrics give this track even more flavor.
David Heartbreak - M2D (Miami 2 DC)
This track has that bounce that we all love. Literally this is a combination of Miami and DC. The Moombahton switch up is so smooth that you don't even notice it until is on the second drop. Don't sleep on David Heartbreak.
araabMUZIK - "I Remember" Electronic Dreams Deluxe Edition
araabMUZIK was originally a rap producer with The Diplomats. He produced tracks for Jim Jones, Camron, Juelz Santana, and many more rappers. He recently switched over into the dubstep/EDM scene, and puts on an amazing performance just using 2 MPC 2200s.
Trip Lee - Robot (Jiclo Drumstep Remix)
Jiclo is a very under-rated producer who i came across on Soundcloud. I love drum n' bass as well as some dubstep, and when you fuse them together you get drumstep. Those synths are well placed, and I love the structure of this track as well.
If you have any tracks you would like to share, leave them in the comment section, at the bottom of this page or in my dropbox on Soundcloud, and I will take a look at them. I love helping upcoming artists get heard, as well as sharing and spreading great new music.
