Tiger Woods is not having a happy Memorial Day.
Hipsters Collective is a free label you’ve gotta check out. They continue to bring out some dope beats made by talented producers. This week’s fire is by CYMN called Dominium. It’s a bass house tune that has some funk and gritty bass.

NGHTMRE fans have been fiending for this release since DJ Snake quietly dropped it on Twitter back in March. We finally have the remix in full and after you here it once you know your weekend has officially begun. Adding a dose of his signature sound and hard-hitting synths, NGHTMRE flips “Here Comes The Night” into a bouncy and melodic track, perfect for the warm summer nights ahead. A departure from the typical heaviness he’s known for, the remix continues to showcase NGHTMRE’s consistently stellar production talent.
NGHTMRE and Slander just announced they will be bringing their Gud Vibrations party to the Heineken House at Coachella Weekend 2. Other festival appearances in the pipeline for summer 2017 include Lollapalooza, Hangout Festival, Bonnaroo, Middlelands and many more unannounced.

The first I heard of ASADI was when one of those videos of him crushing it on a drum machine (the one on the bridge if we’re being exact) popped up on my feed, I was instantly compelled. The guy is insanely talented and extremely smart; his sound isn’t something that has never been created but his twang and ease is uncanny. His Persian roots definitely leak into almost all of his tracks and this to me is what makes his music so dope. I mean lets be honest, has anybody ever heard of Persian trap music before ASADI?
He’s come a long way since those videos; his debut EP, I’m Coming Home, is set to drop at the end of this month. He’s booked on a ton of festival lineups and he continues to release fresh tunes, it’s only up from here! His most recent release is called “Cryptic” and I honestly cant think of a better word to describe this dude. The track starts off with an echoing background voice, then in typical fashion ASADI breaks out the Maschine and laces it with some trap drums. Give it a listen below and stay on the look out for that 4 track EP coming soon!

Snakehips is one of my favorite groups out there at the moment and when they linked with MØ I was thoroughly impressed. “Don’t Leave” is a solid record and the remixes they have released are all must haves. This Oshi remix is no different. The drop gives the record a completely new vibe and Oshi rarely misses. Grab this one below or add it to your Spotify playlist.

One of my favorite things to do is stumble upon new producers that I’ve never heard. Even better is when you’re scrolling their discography and get completely taken back that you’re just discovering them. That’s how I’m feeling after checking out the SoundCloud of New Jersey producer, Chuck Sutton. The guy has incredible range and honestly I can’t even pin point one specific genre to his style. In his most recent release he brings a futuristic flavor on a bouncy, melodic and heartfelt tribute to his girlfriend. The vocals on this one were written by Chuck Sutton and brought to life by Triplets. I have to say the collab is a perfect match; stay on the look out for more coming from the go getter out of Jersey!
Fresh out of Heldeep Records this week is 2 brand spanking new remixes for Oliver Heldens‘ tune, Good Life. He’s got one-half of Cartel Recordings’ owners Kryder and the beast of the east Florian Picasso. Both dish out 2 different tracks, interpreting their own versions of the silky original. The House funky Kryder tune is an absolute club smasher. The Picasso one has a more festive feeling energetic tune that he did wonders on. Peep the tunes below!

LA producer Bricks makes groovy bass-heavy House tunes. His latest is called Get Right and will blow your speakers up if you’re not careful with the volume. I got the chance to do a small interview about how he got his name, his inspirations, goals and how he got into electronic music.
TSS: How did your construction job influence you starting the alias?
B: When coming up with my brand, I wanted to keep it authentic. I wanted something that described me as a person and as a producer. So to accomplish that, my lady and I sat down and wrote down words that described me, or words that had to do with construction. She had written down the word Bricks, and it just clicked. Even though I’m a commercial plumber, not a brick layer, something about the word resonated with me. Bricks is blue-collar, hard working, resilient, strong, determined and of course red, lol.
TSS: Who are your main influences that inspired Bricks?
B: A few tracks that have influenced my break style were Afrika Bambaataa – Planet Rock, Afro-Rican – Give it All You Get, Freestyle – Don’t Stop the Rock, Newcleus – Jam on it, Al-Naafyish – Time, Cybotron – Clear, Herbie Hancock – Rock It and Egyptian Lover – Egypt Egypt. Those are just a few of my favorites and to this day are still great songs. When it comes to that 80’s sound that I love so much, that came straight from watching Tron, the original. Daft Punk did an amazing job with Tron: Legacy, but he OG is still where it’s at for me.
TSS: How will 2017 be different than 2016 for you?
B:2016 was a great year for me cause I was able to finally come out with the Bricks brand. A lot of great opportunities came my way, like signing with Indie Pop management and AM Only. This year, I plan on growing this brand out to the masses. I feel good about this year already. After releasing ‘Get Right’ last week, I am going to release a remix I did for a big artist and another original track a couple weeks after that. I’m working on putting out more music and I hope everyone keeps showing the love.
TSS: What got you into electronic music?
B: I got into the rave scene early with my boy Matt when we were around 17 years old. We’d drive to some sketchy parts of Southern California just to listen to some Hard House. That was fun to just go crazy and have fun, but what really got me hooked was when I heard a track called Launch by DJ Jean for the first time. From that point on, I was hooked. My taste in Electronic Music has grown since then to include a lot of different sub-genres in the EDM world. I listen to everything from House to Drum n Bass and I truly appreciate every genre.
