Royal - Royal's Theme

All hail D.C. producer Royal for his debut single "Royal's Theme" off his forthcoming 'Cycles' EP. Premiered on Earmilk, the track is a beautifully composed symphony of electronic progressive sounds, vocal samplings and a superior tempo. 

After several trial and error sessions, the 21-year-old artist has topped the Hype Machine charts for his versatility and inventive artistry. Living by his personal motto "Music without boundaries", Royal's new re-mastered project falls nothing short of true regal material. 
Listen below.


Soon to be the ambassador of the Jersey Club movement, mysterious producer Hoodboi  and Fool's Gold resident unleashes four hype-worthy mixes. 

Fresh off his remix for Chris Brown's "Loyal", Hoodboi masks in the glory of his recent identity unveiling this year. He's received support from Mad Decent along with scene members like DJ Sliink and Trippy Turtle. It's no wonder with tempo-stranglers like  the "Loyal" remix, Hoodboi possesses such a voracious appeal. Listen below.

Hoodboi’s daring music has earned him respect on an international scale and a devoted fan base. The departure from conventional structures and transition to a lighter beat is a result of his collaboration with Falcons. On different sides of the spectrum with a synonymous sound, the pair take over Tory Lanez's "Crew". Listen below.

Broadening his palette for music, Hoodboi remixes "Deep End" by Coucheron featuring Eastside & Mayer Hawthorne. Going in headfirst, Hoodboi dabbles in electronic backbeats proving to be refreshingly multi-faceted. The hyper-R&B producer continues to challenge himself experimenting beyond the confines of Jersey Club music. Listen below.

Crossing the finish line, presenting the final Hoodboi remix in this feature. Several of you are familiar with the acclaimed club hit T-Pain's "Bartender", our good o'l Hoodboi never disappoints. He kicks the beat in full-gear transforming the original into a grime heavyweight track. Hoodboi's razor blade talent is unmistakably potent cutting through his competition. Listen below.

Amtrac - Those Days

“What I love most about House music is rhythm and soul.” 

Released on Toolroom Records, Amtrac  keeps the party going with gripping new track “Those Days”. In an impressive three-minute span, the electronic producer synthesizes a cutting edge percussion with a pulsating bass. It's fine piece of craftsmanship commanding the dance floor scene with poise. Listen below.

Logic ft. Childish Gambino - Driving Ms. Daisy

Hip-hop producer Logic is killing it with Childish Gambino in their new hit “Driving Ms. Daisy”. In the anticipation of his upcoming album debut, the Visionary Music Group resident gives Bobbysoxers and the RattPack his self-produced track. 

Reminiscent of his past works, Logic stays true to his top shelf lyricism yet changes lanes in the direction of his music. Gambino and Logic team up in pushing beyond the barriers  of the norm and progressing hip-hop sonically. Listen below.
