P-TAB - CRYING FOR YOU
If you’re looking for chill vibes infused with all the feels, this one’s for you. In “Crying For You,” P-TAB uses a horn-led melody juxtaposed with a softer, subtler synth to build the perfect harmony, traversing genres to create a synergy of sound. While the track is infused with spirit and vitality throughout, it’s really the chorus that fosters your emotional investment - leaving you unable to resist singing and swaying right before the drop takes you away with all its brassy funk, illustrating the depth of P-TAB’s artistry as well as showcasing his NOLA roots.

BigNsmall & half-id - promises
BigNSmall are back again with a a beautiful masterpiece in collaboration with Half-ID, the initial voice is the former girlfriend of one of BigNSmall's members, after a long relationship he was left with out answers and turned to music to help express his feelings. Javue from Half-ID lays down amazing vocals over this emotional production that brings calm vibes to just about everyone who hears it.
Very different from what we’re used to coming from What So Not, but we’re definitely l not complaining. The smooth synths and beautiful vocals from Herizen flow so well together, this is easy listening at it’s purest form. The message as said by Herizen is about "letting go of someone you love for the better and feeling all the pain in that detachment, with the hope that it could end in a friendship”. We’ve all had these emotions at one point and this song does a great job at capturing the emotions that go along with it.
Woah, that guitar…
Starting off this song just has everything you need in a killer future bass track. Smooth synths, big drums, airy vocals, a killer build up, and that drop oooff. GNDR absolutely smashed it on this release, combining amazing future bass with such clean guitar coming in on that second drop really setting this song apart from many in the genre that’s become over saturated with songs that are, well all to much the same.
G.O.D. (GRIND OR DIE) - BLVK JVCK & Flosstradamus (ft. Leat’ed)
Banger Alert! We already know Floss and BLVK JVCK are some of the hottest names in trap music - but they’ve truly outdone themselves with this one. 808-heavy doesn’t even begin to cover it. From its breakdowns, to its heavy use of hard-style synths and gritty kick, G.O.D. is exactly what you need to start your Friday night! Holla at the trap gods for bringing us these fire beats… I’ll have this one on repeat for months.
Ngyn x glasscat - Awake (ToonSquad x wvntd Remix)
For this remix, wvntd teams up with ToonSquad to bring us an upbeat take on ‘Awake’ through the introduction of a faster, bouncier bassline. Although the playful vibrations of their interpretation draw some emphasis away from the aerial quality of the original vocals, they also build upon the song’s depth - pulling you further into the compilation of sounds in a way that keeps you grooving along to the new beat without compromising any of the original’s emotional appeal.
Post Malone - Wow. (waitwhat Remix)
Don’t sleep on this… this remix masterfully fuses hip hop, trap, and future bass influences into the perfect vibe for any occasion. Its bouncy bass line and melodic guitar lead jam alongside groovy synths. The result is a mesmerizing symphonic flow that utilizes Post Malone’s distinct vocal quality and puts forth a visionary take on his widely successful music. waitwhat defies codified genres with this remix while staying true to their own unique sound. Be sure to check out their latest mixes for a ton of sick tunes you didn’t know you needed.
Motaki - Work This Out (ft. Jade Alice)
This song is sure to make you stop whatever you’re doing and listen. Coupling ethereal melodies with a powerful bass line, the ebb and flow of this atmospheric track will get you in your feels. Following the release of his self-titled debut album earlier last year, this compelling single closed out 2018 with a bang for Motaki. Work It Out suggests we should expect the unexpected from this rising artist. All I know is I'm 100% here for it and definitely not ready.
