Halfway Home: Tunes To Get You Into The Weekend

Yo!  We baaaaack.  Hope everybody is well.  If you’re not, hopefully these tunes can brighten up your day :).  Don’t have time to write much today, I have some major schoolwork to handle. <BLAH.  Anyways, let’s get down to it!

First track for today is another one from the man who has been turning peoples heads HARD lately, Wayfarer.  We highlighted an absolutely MASSIVE tribal rhythm that he produced called ‘Fall Of The Zulu’ recently and the tune that we have for you today is another top-notch production.  This one is a bit of a different approach but, nonetheless, will set the vibes off in a real proper fashion.  I anticipate that this guy will be making some XXXXXL moves in the year to come so keep your ears locked for more of his sounds!

Next on the buttons is the Chestplate family member, District.  Coming hard with pounding kick drums and a reese bass that can summon the most evil of thoughts into your head.  I’m talking zombie rave status.  Or maybe an underground (I literally mean underneath the earth) club that has no light in it, just people head nodding in an untamed manner.  Yeah, I have weird thought, WHAT?!  Haha.  Anyways take a listen to this one and make sure you check underneath your bed after.

Content is the mastermind behind this next tune.  As with Wayfarer, I think this guy is going to be a top competitor for ‘Best New Producer’ this year in the DSF awards, no joke.  He’s putting out tune after tune in a Killawatt-ish fashion.  I know the Subculture crew has to be mad stoked to have him aboard the team.  The entire Subculture roster is heading for big things this year with cats like Pressa, Demon, Crises, Pistonsbeneath, fuck, theres too many to list!  Respect to the crew from over here stateside.

This last track is from a producer I know nothing about.  Got wind of it from the AJP crew earlier today.  Definitely on a different tip than the previous tunes but, it’s DOPE!

.

That’s it for the tunes today but, before I send you off I have one more gem for you.  US bossman Noah D put together an absolutely magnificent mix for the SMOG podcast series.  Bringing a true west coast style to the decks and showcasing his new tunes alongside many others this mix will be  a very well-spent 30 minutes of your life. I GUARANTEE IT!  Lend your ears and clear your mind.

Wag Wan fam,

Today we finna’ bring you another round of reggae dubs to keep the spirits high 😉 Pulling a couple classics out of the bag and sharing them with you, because we know reggae brings the right vibes to all ears.  Light one up and have a listen.

First choon is a remix done by big bad west coast producers Noah D & Roommate, and dates back to 2008.  Originally a massive tune hailing from reggae-don Alborosie, titled ‘Police’, Noah D & Roomate throw their flavour into it, titling the tune Polizia Remix.  Most noticeable is the big chubby bassline accompanied by Alborosie’s high grade lyrics, making it a tune to throw in the list of classics.  Whether at home or in the club, always a big tune.

.

Next choon is another one dating back to around 2008 and is as solid as the last one.  The tune titled ‘ Big Up An’ Bun Her’ is similar to the last one with a sick reggae chant ushered by a bassline that makes you rock in your seat.  Perfect day-party type tune here.

.

The next one is from the evil half of Digital Mystiks, Coki.  On the remix of a tune titled ‘Wah Dem A Do’, Coki initiates his noticeable style into the tune while incorporating the gangsta for life lyrics so well known by veteran Mavado.  I like utilizing tunes like this because it often times reaches out to a larger audience than solely deep heads.

.

Last choon is mega bassweight remix by Marcus Visionary titled ‘The General’.  The original done by Jahdan Blakkamoore is nothing short of epic but, the remix really brings the pressure with powerful low-end frequencies.  Turn this one up, sit back, and enjoy.

.

Blessings.
