Friday Rewind: 8 EDM Essentials For Your Rotation

The hottest electronic dance music to kickoff your weekend starts here:

Sound Remedy - "Chiaroscuro" (released July 15)
Sound Remedy is here to wind you down after a hectic week. The LA native contrasts a light and airy melodic dubstep with a chilled-out trap drop. The result is spiked lemonade over ice. Own it (free).

Drake - "Girls Love Beyonce (SBTRKT g.l.b Edit)" (released July 17)
Withdrawing from the limelight, SBTRKT (pronounced "subtract") has reemerged with this stripped down, broken mirror edit. Vibe out with this sultry tune, and be sure to catch SBTRKT next week (Thursday, August 1) at Output in Brooklyn, NY. Listen up.

Rone - "Bye Bye Macadam (Gabriel & Dresden Bootleg)"
Take a ride down rainbow road with Gabriel & Dresden's enchanting bootleg remix for Frenchman Rone's single, Bye Bye Macadam. This emotionally charged progressive-trance gem is a staple in their live sets and just a taste of what's to come from G&D's forthcoming single due out this September. Own it.

Ummet Ozcan - "The Cube" (released July 22)
Ummet Ozcan is really thinking out of the box, err cube. The track is as dark as it is ominous… and suddenly stabbing from all directions is a chaos of aggressive synths, ferocious sub bass, and an invasive climax. Consider yourself warned. Own it.

Chuckie & Promiseland feat. Amanda Wilson - "Breaking Up (Dzeko & Torres Remix)" (released July 22)
Like Playdoh, Dzeko & Torres take last year's fan-favorite "Breaking Up" and remold it. Nixing the original's piano melody, the Toronto-duo sculpt a progressive masterpiece just in time for their Tomorrowland appearance tonight in Belgium. Own it.

TJR - "What's Up Suckaz"
Equipped with that characteristic 'TJR bounce,' "What's Up Suckaz" is the quintessential beat of the summer. Own it.

Static Revenger feat. KAY - "Back Off, Bitch" (released July 23)
Ever want to tell the world to just "F-off"? LA-based Static Revenger teams up with KAY for this feisty, in-your-face banger out now on Dim Mak. Pouty face and 'tude required. Own it.

Sebastien Drums & Whelan di scala - "Funky Express"
The latest to drop out of Guru Records (the label headed by Gregori Klosman) is Sebastian Drums and Whelan di scala who are riding into the club scene on the "Funky Express." Well-timed claps and adrenaline-rising buildups make this a sure single to be played in a lot of DJs' festival and dance sets. Catch a preview before it drops on Guru August 19.

Meek Mill Responds To Comedian Michael Rapaport's Critique

While Meek Mill's pregame performance at the NBA All-Star game on Sunday (Feb. 17) may have been praised by many on Twitter, there was one person who was not impressed by the Philadelphia rapper's appearance. Comedian/actor Michael Rapaport used his Twitter account to critique Mill, but the latter didn't hold his tongue back either.

"Aye @michaelrapaport don't ever use the word trash when you speaking on nothing from our culture unless you tryna get trashed," Meek wrote. "#2 who gave you authorization to be speaking on us? #3 what you charging now?"

— Meek Mill (@MeekMill) February 18, 2019

A couple of tweets after his first response to Rapaport, the "Going Bad" rapper posted a picture with the New York City native who he claims "wanted a selfie" with him.

Me:ayo yo who this? Anonymous: I think it’s the guy from white men can jump? Him: meek you so fire you give me that feeling what hip hop is missing ima fan “can I get a selfie”? Hurry up go head 🤦🏾‍♂️

— Meek Mill (@MeekMill) February 18, 2019

The tweets that got Mill fired up by the 48-year-old entertainer featured references about the rapper's previous beef with Drake and his, in Rapaport's opinion, incapability to rap on beat.

"Where I'm from, if you get dragged by DRAKE & don't respond you're & always will be WACK," Rapaport started.

Where I’m from, if you get dragged by DRAKE & don’t respond you’re & always will be WACK.

Cardi B And Blueface Release Music Video For “Thotiana” Remix

Cardi B is on a hot streak since taking home the Grammy Award (Feb. 10) for Best Rap Album (Invasion of Privacy). The Bronx native’s triumph at the annual showcase kept her steady on a path of musical domination since releasing her second collaboration with Bruno Mars (“Please Me”) and recently, the remix to Blueface’s “Thotiana.”

Decked out in a red bandana-print outfit, Cardi appears in the Cole Bennett-directed visual to spit a sensual verse. “Bust is, bust it, I’m a savage/ Bi**h, throw it back like a 10-year challenge/ Take him to the crib, the I push him on the sofa/ Have his breath smelling like pu**y and mimosa.”

In April 2018, Cardi B unveiled her debut album to fanfare. Since then, the mother-of-one has remained a dominant figure in the music industry and she hopes to further solidify that presence with her upcoming sophomore project. “Hopefully I can get my album done around the same time that Invasion of Privacy came out,” she previously said. “I don’t know how possible that’s gonna to be because I feel like I’m gonna be extremely, extremely busy.”

Until then, watch the "Thotiana (Remix)" video above.

YNW Melly's "Murder On Mind" Number 1 On Apple Music Amid Murder Charges

YNW Melly's career may finally be taking off as his song "Murder On My Mind" has hit number one on Apple Music. However, the 19-year-old, real name Jamell Demons, won't be enjoying the fruits of his labor as a judge denied him bond after being charged with two counts of first-degree murder.

According to a tweet from  Chart Data, Melly's 2017 track has earned prime real estate on Apple Music, with some believing the song is a confessional providing clues to the murder he and Cortlen Henry are accused of. Unfortunately, the song was released prior to the double homicide.

According to the Sun-Sentinel, Demons, and Henry reportedly staged the murder of Anthony Williams and Christopher Thomas Jr to appear like a drive-by shooting. Williams and Thomas were friends of Demons and lived as roommates in Broward County.

Williams and Thomas suffered multiple gunshot wounds and were pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Demons took to Instagram and denied the accusations before turning himself over to police.

“To all my fans and supporters no I did not get locked up in Washington, but I am turning myself in today I want you guys to know I love you and appreciate every single one of y’all,” he wrote. “A couple months ago I lost my two brothers by violence and now the system want to find justice.

“Unfortunately a lot of rumors and lies are being said but no worries god is with me and my brother @ynw.bortlen and we want y’all to remember it’s a ynw Family I love you @ynwsakchaser1 and @ynwjuvy #freeus.”
