Sometimes it takes a while for art to reveal itself and 9 times out of 10, it’s usually for the better. That’s exactly how Partywave’s remix of CLAMR’s “Clout” sounds.” Even though the original song came out almost a year ago, it was well worth the wait to hear Partywave’s take on the track.
The California native, hailing from San Diego, is still up-and-coming in the Bass and Trap scene but has already sharpened his teeth in the last year. Representing West Coast Bass, he has already shared the national circuit stages with acts such as Mr. Carmack, Great Dane and G Jones, the last who you can see in Feb 2017 at the Santa Cruz Music Festival.
“Clout” feat. Sophia Cruz contains all the unique elements of the original track while supplying the listener with a fresh set of goods. Cruz’s spell-binding voice flows throughout the track with Partywave utilizing her most hypnotic parts for an experience that walks the line between drunken euphoria and mind-boggling ecstasy. The golden chimes and calming sounds of water flowing throughout the song only add to the religious experience.
Check out the track on Spotify, iTunes or AppleMusic and keep checking back on this prolific artist. Something tells us he will be making A LOT more waves in the next year.
Just in time for his San Francisco tour dates Dutch DJ, San Holo, dropped his latest track–“Light”–and it’s definitely going to be a crowd pleaser. The soon-to-be 26 year old DJ only recently released his debut EP, 2014’s Cosmos, but has already solidified himself as one of the hottest Trap and Future Bass producers on the scene. Earlier this year he released his third EP, New Sky, through the Monstercat label.
“Light” is the exact jam you’d hope San Holo would release. It’s poppy, upbeat and with a thin line of tragedy running throughout the lyrics “Even if it makes me blind/I just want to see the light.” Plus, it’s almost impossible NOT to shake your ass to the trap rhythms and beats. As always, turn this up, light a spliff and enjoy euphorically.
If you’re in the Bay Area, make sure to catch San Holo at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium on Wednesday, November 23 and Friday, November 25th!!!!
The Booms And Claps mix series is the brainchild of BoomsAndClaps.com, self-described “bass nerds” who realized they wanted to show listeners a new world of bass, trap and electronic music. So far they’ve featured artists such as Aztek, Shiny Things and Tiger Fresh and the websites features interviews with Euphoric favorites like Lafa Taylor and G Jones.
Mix Series 19 features another two of our personal favorites: The Pirate and Smasheltooth. For years this DJ couple has dropped beats throughout the Bay Area along with festivals like Northern Nights and the Santa Cruz Music Fest. While they don’t always perform together, the rare times I have seen them co-DJ at Motiv in Santa Cruz, it’s a musical treat to be heard. Lucky for you, this is just what they did for the latest Booms And Claps installment.
First and foremost, the mix kicks-off with an adorable intro by their neighbor’s child that can make even the coldest of hearts giggle with innocence. Smasheltooth starts first with the two switching between 15 minute sets, gracefully transitioning into each other’s music.
“Smash mixed in a lot of well curated club bangers including trap and Southern hip hop” Pirate says. “So I came in with the booms and claps of the Northwest Bass Scene.”
But don’t expect this to be your run-of-the-mill bass set because these two always have something new up their sleeve.
“The last track is BSN Posse out of Milagro, Spain,” Pirate explains. “It has this beauty to it and sounds like what you’d expect to be playing on European beaches.”
There I was, feeling down on myself because I was recently dumped and figured I’d distract my mind with a little work. I opened Soundcloud to see who has posted the latest in dance music and somehow–maybe a moment of kizmet since it IS Rosh Hashanah (that’s the Jewish New Year for all you Gentiles)–quickly stumbled upon Ellusive’s “Space Between Us (feat. Erene).”
You know that weird moment when you discover a new song that somehow seems to be written about that exact moment in your life? What the fuck, right? How does that happen? Damn you, Ellusive. Ok, maybe that’s a lot of exaggeration considering I’m not that torn up since I’m fairly certain I’m a sociopath, but you get the idea.
Despite the ambushed genital punch in the feels, the track is a 3 min and 44 second monologue, beautifully sung by Erene with the grandiose beats we all love about EDM. Ellusive even throws in a couple of trap beats to keep things interesting and moving right along.
So whether you’re looking for something external to introspectively dive into, or you’re just looking for a smooth track to chill to, don’t shy away from Ellusive. After “Space Between Us,” even I’m looking forward to seeing what else he has up his sleeve.
It’s April, the sun’s out and that means it’s time to work on the beach tan during the day and pop bottles in the sweat-filled clubs at night. No party gets cracking without the right beats and Santa Cruz’s own The Pirate has just the mix to get those asses shaking.
Whether it’s spinning tracks at Emissions or setting up shows with Raindance Productions at clubs throughout San Francisco and Santa Cruz, The Pirate has worked ’round-the-clock in the Bay Area and Northern California EDM scene for a better part of the last decade. With a wide range of musical taste, the Pirate perfectly blends reggae, trap, hip hop, dub and even calypso into hard-hitting, one-of-a-kind tracks.
His latest mix is 29 minutes of slammin’ beats and intoxicating rhythms for the Bass Tribe’s “Spring Bling” series. From start to finish, Pirate pulls the fun and obscure together in a blend you can’t help but play over and over. One glance at that tracklist and it’s easy to see how he managed to gain over 1300 plays in under a week.
