​ HANDSOME HABIBI x JHENÉ AIKO ­ Trust Deez Hoes



Handsome Habibi are DJ/Producer Brothers Ali and Hamdy Habibi. Both successful solo artists in their perspective field, and apparently are long lost brothers that joined forces in 2014 to form Handsome Habibi. Rumor is they have worked with artists ranging from 2 Chainz to Classic Rock artists The Who, and are high demand DJs. There seems to be some mystery of whats really going on here but all we know is that The Handsome Habibi project is all about having fun again. It's an audiovisual mélange of their favorite things, Hip Hop x 90s references x Future Dance x Middle Eastern imagery. Their style of remixes ranges from bass driven Future Dance tunes to Trap anthems with Pop appeal and everything in between. A prolific odyssey through sounds and images.

"Trust Deez Hoes" their latest remix is a take on songstress Jhené Aiko's freestyle, transformed into a bangin, yet melodic Trap anthem. With badass vocal chops and illustrious arpeggios this song will have you trippin! We cannot wait to hear more from these guys! We'll be sure to keep you posted!

Artist Spotlight: JON SIGS


Dim the lights and enter a glitchy dream world with these two
Jon Sigs tracks. Despite this producer's elusive presence on the internet, his experimental sound makes an impression. In fact, I actually think lack of info about Jon Sigs on the web adds an element of mystery that compliments his haunting sound very well.

His brief SoundCloud bio states: "I really do not follow trends in music. I just create what makes me happy," a mission statement I think we can all get down with. He calls his sound "sensual electronic soul," which is a perfect way to describe these two tracks "Open Your World" and "H!GH".
 



I honestly can't decide what track I like better, but both are unlike anything I've heard before. Comment below and share which track you're feeling. Enjoy!

Artist Spotlight: Saint [Interview]

Saint has been making lots of noise in the last year with big tunes, twerk anthems, and just changing the game with original and innovative music that follows no formula. Saint carries a very mysterious aesthetic that forces you to wonder and focus solely on the music. We were able to catch up with Saint and ask a few questions. So lets see what the Bass Shaman Saint has to say.

What is your name, favorite food, and what city you from?
My name is Virgil. I’m based in Los Angeles, and my food of choice is water.
Describe your sound in three words?
Hip-hop. Club. Aggressive.
What three songs you have been into lately?
‘2 On’ by Tinashe, ‘Run These Streets’ by K. Michelle, and ‘Melba’s Call’ by Bok Bok and Kelela. That and everything DJ Mustard and Young Thug are putting out- I know you said only three though. And Nicki Minaj too, sorry.

What audience do you have in mind when you DJ and produce?
I never really had an audience in mind, I kind of just go for stuff I like and would want to hear when out.
You have collaborated with a good amount of artists, how has the process been? Do you feel you have developed your sound with these collaborations?
It’s always fun. I try to bring them into my sonic world and find some type of middle ground. Some people I work with i’ll bang it out (G-Buck, Jesse Slayer), and others i’ll really dive and make something deep and more art based (AGLORY). You pick up something from everyone, really.

You have received a lot of cosigns, and your tracks have been played at festivals by some of the biggest names. How does it feel to have your tracks being heard by thousands of people?
It doesn’t feel real some times. I’ve been in crowds when Major Lazer has played me, and seeing something you made in basically isolation do that to people is insane. Then there’s stuff like DJ Shadow, who is someone I listened to and admired growing up, doing scratch routines to my track with G-Buck that is, like, unbelievable. Hearing yourself on the radio too, out driving, is something i’ll never get used to. It’s really hard to wrap your head around the fact that your music is reaching that many people. Even looking at Soundcloud plays and trying to wrap your head around each number being a actual person sitting somewhere in the world, listening to you… it’s a blessing. And crazy as fuck.
You are working with Aglory on a new track, how has the process been? the track called Cordoba?
Yes, Cordoba. It originally started as a rap beat I was doing just for fun- which is what I do when I get irritated with club/dance music. I posted a video on Facebook of it just cause, and Anthony (1/2 of AGLORY) immediately messaged me asking what it was. I explained it was just me having fun, and he insisted we make it a full track. We went back and forth a few times, and the end result was an R&B sequel to our last EP.
Is it true you have a crush on Angelina Jolie and when did it start?
Not a crush at all- she’s my hero, my life inspiration. I don’t even know in all honesty, I feel like i’ve always admired and looked up to her even when I was a child. She’s poised, intelligent, worldly, but still maintains this amazing aura of cool and edgy. There absolutely no one like her. I want to be her, honestly. One day i’ll be that poppin’… hopefully.
How did the Gijibae collab come about with G Buck?
We had just did Mata Hari and really enjoyed the process. We actually sought out to make another club track- Gijibae was originally 145 BPM instead of 100. It had an entirely different lead instrument as well. We slowed it down to twerk-BPM. The song was finished but we happened on another track that had a synth like the one we were using. I wasn’t having it, so we scrapped it. I came up with the bells, we revamped the track, and that’s basically it. I think G-Buck has actually played the original out once or twice, and people were just like, wait what the hell?


You have released Twerk, moombahton, and trap style songs. What has been the most fun to produce?
Twerk, easily. Rap and hip-hop beats come the easiest to me- making dance music can get very tedious. With rap you can just go right into things- club music you have to build the tension.  There are rules. It’s so nerdy. When the whole twerk thing came about it was literally perfect. It caters to both sides of my musical interests. I’m obsessed with rap in general, but the fact that twerk is so heavily based in NOLA bounce music, Bay hyphy, and Atlanta snap music made it a given for me. I have the most fun making it, hands down.
What is War House?
War House is an offshoot of Baltimore/Jersey/Philly club music I created that follows the typical house/big room structure, only with club type vocals/kicks/leads. I don’t really make it anymore, though.

You have produced a bunch of tracks for Chapman, an upcoming rapper.
Chapman is a really good friend of mine, one of my best friends. I originally just did one track for his debut EP. He ended up flying to LA for a string of shows early January. We hung out a lot during that time and ended up working really well together. There’s definitely a lot more music coming with him.
Any future releases planned?
Many. My main focus is a full-length rap album, IMMACULATE. It’s my take on The Neptunes Clones and Timbaland’s Shock Value. Th entire thing was produced by me, and features a lot of friends and amazing vocal talent from all over the country. I have an EP coming out with Stezus Christ for our new collective NO. I have tracks with G-Buck, AGLORY, Fei-Fei, and tons of others that’ll be dropping soon. There’s also a few official remixes for both vocal artists and other dj/producers I have coming out. I got an EP of all club/twerk music too, which is untitled right now. Really excited for that one though. There’s two tracks, Naomi Campbell and Zoloft, that are really fun and probably some of my favorite things i’ve ever done. And then there’s beats for a bunch of really amazing rappers.
Have you ever thought of including face veils as part of your merchandise?
Never. The veil is more so commentary on the modern artist in the social media era- not a way of keeping a secret identity. I think a lot of the magic is gone because artists share themselves so freely on the internet. You always know where they’re at, what they’re thinking, wearing, eating. Music, at least for me, has always been an escape, so I like to keep some air of intrigue around me.
What do you carry in your DJ Bag?
 Just my laptop, a selection of cables, and an Akai APC.
What three Producers should we be listening to?
Jesse Slayter, G-Buck, and Cratesz.
Anything you want to tell your fans?
Thank you for supporting me and listening! I’m working so hard to bring everyone the best, most fun stuff I can come up with. And i’m working extra hard to get out and play for you all. I see every message and i’m trying to get out to these places, just know that. I hope IMMACULATE is something you all enjoy. Keep it classy, drink a ton of water, and love yourself.

Brokechella 2014 [EVENT]

These days musical festivals have become huge and grown to many different events. Coachella is one of the biggest events and has expanded to two weekends. Seems these days that only the wealthy can afford Coachella, and at a price that almost hits $400, there has to be a better alternative. Thankfully, if your in the Los Angeles area and have $20 you can experience a festival at a fraction of the price of Coachella. Brokechella is your solution to good music, memories, and food. The lineup is stacked with great talent from the Hip Hop Stage, DJ Stage, and bands stage. Let's not even forget the many comedians who are also on board for the fun. I honestly can't find something as culturally relevant and organic as Brokechella in Los Angeles. Amazing artists will be rocking all the stages. From picking which food truck to eat at and which stages and artists to see, it can be a little overwhelming in an awesome way. So make sure to get your Broke Pass [HERE]

Here's some tunes you can expect to hear at Brokechella:

New Jacuzzi featuring Mr. Carmack Seppuku Pt. 1 EP


Yesterday we received some of the hardest beats we have heard all year from our two favorite Hawaiian's Mr. Carmack and Jacuzzi! We are huge supporters of Jacuzzi (See our last Jacuzzi review here) and the fact he hooked up with his island bud Mr. Carmack on this EP shows exactly what that next level is. Heavy beats to bang your head to, and that defines what happens when you mix to great musical minds when it just flows. 



Mr. Carmack is no newbie. Everything this guy touches elevates the scene and he brings this old school vibe with a newer sound that is just fucking infectious. We just want more and more and he keeps delivering. Throwing all lame marketing to the side, the dude does what he wants when he wants and keeps turning out some of the best music out there. I say when your on fire, your on fire, keep it going. Why hold a producer back when he can deliver like only Mr. Carmack can. We hope to hear more Mr. Carmack and Jacuzzi collabos cause the two together we think brings out the best in each other for sure! Both collabo's they have done really flex hard and that they can go hard or soft and still come LEGIT. Get your free downloads while you can and support! Spread the word cause these two are blowing up.



Cheers!

New Music from Disclosure // option4 // Bit Funk // FREE DOWNLOADS


Disclosure has been touring so hard I wonder how they had time to knock this one out! Well, the Brothers are at it again and this time they have blessed us with an awesome jam to flex at our Halloween parties. All you DJ's are stoked! Disclosure is on fire, and as long as they keep knocking out jams like this it looks like they will be sticking around for some time. We found a little extra bonus for you as well, a little mash up from our friends at Hood Internet! Enjoy the FREE DOWNLOAD! Your welcome!







option4 is at it again, and to tell you the truth we love this tune even more then the new Disclosure tune. I'm not sure if it's the stabs, that sample that takes me back or the fact that our bud has elevated the sound coming out of the States. Yea we can play ball with the best of em! That's what's up. Street Love is a feel good jam that will get everyone in the room on the dancefloor and dancing. It has something for everyone, first the ladies, the homies, and the bass lovers. Once again, FREE DOWNLOAD on this one. Don't sleep on this and pick it up! You'll thank us later...




NYC based Bit Funk has dropped an instant classic of one of our favorite Hip Hop tunes of all time and has done it with class! With just a touch of love with his Rhodes he has given this song new life for a new generation. Possibly the most Pop song we have recently heard from our bud. No matter what you have to give Bit Funk some love on this one. Be sure to show that love and hit him up on his Facebook HERE. Getting a new Bit Funk tune is always a treat!  Enjoy the FREE DOWNLOAD! =)


Cheers!

Haez


So it's very rare when i get worked up about a track and how smooth it is. Last time i was this impressed was when i heard XXYYXX's About you. Such lush and creamy synths, the chord progressions play in the pain spoken in the Mary J. Blige lyrics. An amazing remix you should download and keep an eye out for our friends Haez and Spaceman Unlimited.

Enjoy!

Muevelo ft. Swizzymack x Review

Muevelo has become a recent Los Angeles staple. Showcasing the best in new urban sounds and fostering a music scene, which features Moombahton, Trap, Philly Club, and other styles. Such a good party in LA, that it has garnered much attention from many people. Always featuring some upcoming or established name such as Munchi, Nadastrom, Swizzymack, Dj Blass, and many more. You can never go wrong when attending a Muevelo party.



Drunk Girl feeling the vibes and going ham and cheese for Swizzymack.


I recently attended the latest Muevelo ft. Swizzymack and wow! It was an amazing experience with lots of people dancing and feeling the music. Different sounds and an eclectic group of people made the night a blast. Swizzymack had a nearly perfect set, with one hiccup when the laptop fell and died. He was a good sport about it and quickly started to get things poppin again. Playing a heavy bass set. It was definitely a worthwhile set to catch and dance too.


If there was anything that i learned from this party. It's that Philly, Jersey, and Bmore Club are making a  push that will contend with the recent popularity of Trap. Los Angeles loved Philly Club, and once you get approval here, your going to be successful anywhere else.


Check out their next party [HERE]

Mixtape of the Week - Morfeeus


Morfeeus is a newcomer in the Hip Hop scene, but a veteran in the music culture. Former Black Metal artist turned philosophic Hip Hop Producer. There are few mixes that can catch my ears attention, because of all the watered down mixes that exist, but this mixtape is different. You can experience different emotions and most importantly a little contemplation of yourself. Not many mixtapes can do this. This mixtape features a ton of originals, and samples you will know or not. Ranging from movies to female vocalist Grimes. The percussions are on point, the samples are great, and melody is eerie, but just enough to give you a head bobbing vibe. So listen, pay attention, and enjoy!

USB Drive Vol. 4

This installment of USB Drive is very diverse. We have some Trap, Moombah, and amazing house music to vibe to. Keepin it fresh, and poppin. Enjoy!

Iggy Azalea is right now leading the female hip hop movement. So it was only about time that Flosstradamus and Juicy J linked up with her to produce a Trap banger. Sip on Promethezine and bump this.


This next track is a remixed and moombahfied Sean Kingston track. Smooth, and some hard synths. Not too filthy, just right. Great club track.


Everyone say's they love House music, but were not talking about that generic house on the radio. Were talking about that real deep house. Smooth and flashback to the 90's. Good beat, mellow feel, and all around a good vibe track.


Once again Calcat releases another track keepin the house vibe alive. Sampling Will smith, smooth percussions, and a hypnotizing melody. Music like this gives me faith for the dance music scene in America. Download this tune and stay jiggy wit' it.


Our Friend Babysteps aka trap sucio aka steal your girl, then leave her cause he was bored. Yeah that dude. He has been pushing the moombah music for a minute and he continues to bring that next level sounds. Heavy kick, a harder synth, and not to mention the samples. This track is fiya.

Looking for the perfect jams to get you hyped for your exciting journeys? Well Mr. Cornett has them. All the way from Kentucky, he has brought the sound that literally makes your body feel complete epicness. So hold on, Amtrac’s epic sounds will take you on one of the greatest dreamy electronic journeys of a lifetime.

AMTRAC - MIDNIGHT (FEAT. JENNA O'GARA) by AMTRAC


NINETYNINE

There are at least 99 reasons why funky music should stick around. Julian Gamble knows them all, probably even more. This is why he creates funky music with his neck jerking beats. I’m sure he has 99 other ways to make you move other than just jerking your neck. Hope to hear more from him as he develops many more ways to build his own unique funky sound.

FUTUREWIFE


Everyone has an ideal wife in mind, but futurewife is a whole other kind of wife. He is no housewife in your kitchen, but he sure can cook up some mad sexy beats. Feed your appetite with his homemade Hip-Hop influenced beats. Then you will say you are full & satisfied.

Kill The Noise x Datsik - Lightspeed // Justice - Canon (Tiga Remix)


Apparently Electro isn't dead yet. Kill The Noise and Datsik have teamed up to flex their Electro skills all while adding their Dubstep grime. The build up on this jam is HUGE and the bangin drop is totally worth it. What more should we expect. We are only talking about two of the biggest names in the production game at the moment. I know these two will be teaming up even more in the future and we can't wait!




So far it seems I like alot of these remixes Ed Banger is putting out for the new Justice album. I almost like the remixes more then the original album. Tiga is the latest to add to the great remixes. Also gotta love the Rick Rubin remix, both have solid vale and deserve some play. Run it!






Cheers!

Usher - Climax (Prod. By Diplo) + Vaski Remix!

As Diplo's beats progress, the Hip-Hop and R&B community get more and more hungry for it! Usher is the latest to work with Diplo and they have created an amazing hit! Diplo at the moment is on fire with multiple releases that are all blowing up at once. It's huge for the man who has really changed the music scene forever. As his underground music got more popular, the main stream realized that their beats were lacking that new sound that only Diplo could provide. Great part is, Diplo stayed on track, not letting the money game or the fame change his style much. Music needed a well rounded gentleman who came with a worldly-ness and an open mind to art and world music to provide. Thank god it was Diplo. Keep coming strong my friend.











Cheers!

Featured UK Artist - Skream

After making some huge waves with his remix of La Roux "In for the Kill," Skream has been hard at work. His second full album was released not too long ago on Aug. 9th via Tempa Records and once again Skream comes correct, this time with more than just wobbles. In his new album keenly named Outside the Box, Skream literally does just that. From collaborations with L.A.-based rapper MURS to a new jam with La Roux you know you can't pass up a good listen to this album. It works 8-Bit, Dubstep, and straight up experimental styles. It is obvious Skream is willing to push the boundaries of the Dubstep style to see what magic he can mix together. I find most of the tracks are very chill and not as hard as most Dubstep albums I've heard in the last 2-3 years. This has to be one of my favorite albums this year. Definitely one to bob your head to till the end of 2010. If you're in the Los Angeles area or even near CA you should try to make it out to Nocturnal Festival to see Skream perform this weekend. You don't want to miss out on this one.

Check out this badass video for 1st single off Outside the Box /////
