Drake – Hold On, We’re Going Home (Kulkid Remix)

Kulkid

 

‘Dem tropical vibes! Yes – Drake’s latest hit, Hold On, We’re Going Home has been receiving quite the pampering recently when it comes to the remix scene, but when the pampering just keeps getting better and better… Who cares?

 

The latest rework comes at the hands of just a little diddy by the name of Kulkid. You may have heard of the French vibe master – he has sort of been taking over the interwebz lately, and doesn’t seem to be showing any apparent signs of slowing down. Laying down his truly unique blend of deep-house and tropical jungle madness, Drake’s now house-hold lyrics blissfully bounce around the track’s soft pads and bass plucks beautifully.

 

Christmas has come early, my friends. In true Kulkid fashion, the track is available for free, right this very second on the man’s Soundcloud. This new jam from the K-man will grab you in a way no hot chocolate from mama bear ever will – a true heater. Enjoy.

 

P.S.

 

Just one more present for you wonderful people – be sure to check yet another groovin’ *insert synonym for song* from Germany’s own Mr. Larsson above. You’re gonna need something coo’ and cruise-worthy to bring that blood sugar down after Kulkid’s juicy tune.

On top this week, I’ve got a pair of producers hailing from Brazil, making waves with their tropical slant on trap. With 5 releases in November alone, including a high profile remix for Major Lazer… these guys should be on your “nice” list by now.

BassReport 73

 

#1 Tropkillaz – Pump It

Pump It is as dance friendly as they come, while still swaying well outside the textbook trap formula. Fun fact: Tropkillaz managed to pull this one out with zero assistance from the widely used 808 hats. Bold!

 

#2 DKS – Blame

 

#3 BAR9 & Datsik – Droid

 

#4 Protohype – Say My Name

 

#5 Baauer – I Know

 

#6 Alesia – Otho

 

#7 Okiru – Slumdog

 

#8 Unlikely Futures – Feeling is Gone

 

#9 Roksonix – Full Flight

 

*Late Night Special*
Nate Connelly – You Echo (Asa Remix)

Still Hot!

#1 Emalkay – For The People

#2 Apashe – Black Gold

#3 TC – Do You Rock

Pat Lok – Body II Me

bullsVancouver is a hot bed of talent right now and Pat Lok is certainly a fine example. With a few impressive remixes under his belt as well as support from BBC radio 1 personalities he is definitely not to be ignored. Going through his repertoire, what I like about his sound is that it doesn’t seem to respect genre. Instead, it can be better described as “feel good”. Happiness, hope and positivity baked into each and every slice. Get it while its piping hot……

Kaytra’s always up to something, and this time it’s a little spin on More Love by the Robert Glasper Experiment.  After listening to this song, it feels as though it was meant to be.  Between the soulful and jazzy piano and Kaytra’s classic funky, dance inspired edits I can’t help but find myself nodding in my sleep.

Josh Tillman – The History of Caves [Album Review]

Josh Tillman, also known as Father John Misty, just wrote an original score to The History of Caves, a short film directed by his wife, Emma Tillman. All the songs, although short, are thoughtful and beautiful with a very sombre vibe that makes it the perfect accompaniment to a rainy weekend. There are repeated elements throughout the album that link songs together, like the moody chord progression at the end of Finish Those Cigarettes & Go To Bed and the beginning of Of Course I Live With Them. This gives the album a continuous flow, making it really nice to listen to from start to finish.

You can download the movie on iTunes and stream part of the score below. For the full stream, you’ll have to head to Sub Pop’s private link.

This beautiful chilled out rendition of Lucid Dreams is a far cry from the abrasive, bass filled work we’ve heard most from The M Machine in the past, but it’s becoming a safe bet to expect the unexpected from this forward thinking trio. I can guarantee you’ll see this in my best of 2013 selections.

Marvin Gaye – Sexual Healing (Kygo Remix)

Kygo

 

Pills, diets, odd angular exercises… Nothing will ever come even remotely close to the sexual enhancement innovation that was Marvin Gaye’s 1980s, Sexual Feeling. Now fortunately, this musical dose of baby-batter has remained relatively unscathed over the decades relatively free of ill-fated tampering – said to have propelled every single NASA shuttle launch since the 80s, the power behind the track has remained a deterrent for even the most daring of producers. One man, however, has valiantly stepped up to the task.

 

Risking modern day space travel, Norwegian jedi Kygo has truly done the unthinkable… He… He’s sexified Sexual Healing. Doing what he does best, all-the-while beautifully maintaining the composition of the original, the 22-year-old straight-out strips you of any gloom and doom, magically transports you to the beach of your choice and relentlessly slaps you with a tropical sea-creature of steel drums, airy piano keys and pick-me-up synths. Let us raise our coconut shells and piña coladas – the man truly deserves a toast.

 

Just the cherry on top, in true holiday spirit, this wonderful remix is available for free through Kygo’s Soundcloud. Just a side note, though – whether the world is ready for Sexual Feeling 2.0 is truly unknown. Enjoy with discretion, friends.

Panama’s last wave-making release came by way of their take on Clubfeet’s Cape Town, and now their Always EP is finally seeing its official release on Future Classic today. This is Australian synth pop at its finest and considering the original and remixes by Classixx and Wave Racer are available as a free download for a limited time, it’s a no-brainer download.

I seem to be tooting the OWSLA horn a lot lately, but in a time where kick drums double as one note bass lines to rule the mainstream, you gotta love labels like this for digging up the real music. Tack on another chart topper for Skrill and the gang.

Do You Rock gets the official nod for top tune, but I could have swapped in Get Down Low and still slept tonight. Your co-champs from TC are as unique as they come, and I challenge you to find anything close to the entirety of his Get Down Low EP in terms of style and quality.

No matter what the weather or how badly you’re in a fight with your girlfriend, when What So Not release a new track your day automatically brightens. The newest single from this Sydney duo has (Australian) festival season in mind and packs a punch unrivaled by any of their tracks to date.

 

After a release like this, the question on everyone’s mind is “When will these guys make the jump over to North America?”

The mystery man behind YOGI is brilliant. The production on his latest OWSLA release, Christian Bale, is chaotic and inventive, but doesn’t lose any of the flow necessary to keep it flowing forward. This is the lead single off his upcoming EP and if rumors stand correct, it’s expected to feature a few of hip-hop’s high profile stars.

VSC - 3

 

Brisbane vocalist, Vancouver Sleep Clinic, made waves mid-2013 with the attempted low-key release of his debut single, Vapour. I say “attempted” because it quite quickly (and correctly) was likened to Bon Iver, and reached the ears of hundreds of thousands of discerning listeners.

 

Fast-forward five months and VSC has been hard at work on a debut EP. The first teaser, Collapse, is a brilliant, ethereal sign of things to come.

The R&B-meets-soul niche of EDM has yet another contender;  hailing from southwest London, Bedlam means business. The latest release, Colder, has a soothing vocal and a mellow, clean sound that sounds like anything but bedlam. I think this track will make its way onto my snow day playlist, because to me it whispers quietly, “Look out a window…. watch the snow fall…” and, boy, will it snow.

You wouldn’t be faulted if you didn’t immediately recognize the final track in Flume and Chet Faker’s collaborative EP as a Harley Streton production; the kick is too punchy, the pace too rapid. Make no mistake, however, it’s Flume through and thr0ugh, and continues his string of cinematic-style tunes expertly.

 

The Lockjaw EP is out worldwide on iTunes through our friends at Future Classic.
