It’s always cool to see the behind the scenes of what goes into making a track from a professionals point of view. Even just a screen shot of a project file on Twitter can get a lot of young artists excited and riled up. In the video below, the young Canadian producer known as Ramzoid shows us a glimpse into how he along side Gramatik remixed “Wall Fuck” Flume. Their remix is also number one on the “New And Hot Electronic Charts On Soundcloud“. He begins by telling the story of how he and Gramatik first got in touch and then goes on to soloing individual pieces of the remix and talking a little bit about what went into making those bits and pieces.
I won’t talk too much about it because it’s worth just watching the video! Ramzoid also states he plans on uploading more videos and focusing a little bit more on youtube now that he’s on the road more often than not. He is a really talented kid we can all learn a lot from, and I suggest going over to his youtube right now and subscribing, especially if you are an aspiring artist looking for more tips and tricks about production. He also has a crazy live show, so maybe if we are lucky, he will tell us some stuff about his live set up as well! Check out Gramatik and Ramzoids Remix below before checking out the video. That is, if you haven’t already heard it.

I’m just going to come out with a bold statement, but the Flatbush Zombies are the greatest rap trio to ever walk their undead selves around earth. Erik The Architect provides beats that are out of this world and every single one of these guys has next level BARS! Every single one of their mix-tapes or albums is some of the best and most unique rap music that has been created in these crazy 2000’s and I seriously cannot wait to see how they continue to evolve as artists in the future. The chemistry that Meechy, Erik, & Juice have is unparalleled and there really is no one in the game that has a style like them.
Obviously a Flatbush & Snoop Dogg combo is an occasion where you really should drop whatever your doing and just bump this one. All the Flatbush rappers spit new verses that are just as nasty and passionate as their original ones and with Snoop’s OG flair this really is a legendary collaboration for the musical history books. Hopefully we get a download for this one ASAP but if you need more to satisfy your Flatbush fix be sure to check out their Soundcloud page for some of the best rap in recent years

It’s another WOLV Records release banger. This time it’s with the boss man Dyro working together with rising stars Goja. Their electro house tune is called Alive and it’s the first release of the year for WOLV. The electro lead and beat are done magnificently. It’s an exciting tune that really showcases the talent by these 3 producers.
