Far East Movement's 'Murder Was The Bass' EP Steps Up The BPMs

From the band that brought us ‘Like A G6’ Far East Movement today released their new free EP Murder Was The Bass featuring Rell the Soundbender. West Coast rap veteran Kurupt is also featured on the album, lacing their EDM beats with his signature flow.

Far East Movement’s Kev Nish described how they met Kurupt through working with Snoop on past projects: “we thought how sick it would be to do something crazy reppin’ the West with Kurupt and here it is”. Murder Was The Bass continues the band’s full throttle approach to production following their Remix EP of their current single ‘The Illest’.

Known for collabs with bass music producers and talent spinners like Bingo Players but the crew from across the pond steps into full-in EDM territories on this album. Definitely one to check out for EDM fans.

Track One: Murder Was The Bass Feat Kurupt

Thumping bassline, club anthem guaranteed. Can get a little repetitive, but in a club setting I can see ravers wanting the DJ to wheel it back again and again. Not much vocal input, it could easily be remixed into a pop tune by adding a stronger vocal on top.

Track Two: Gangsta Boogie Feat Kurupt

“Gangsters don’t dance, they boogie!” Similar instrumental to Murder Was The Bass but with a heavier beat, giving it a more urban edge. This has the potential to be a twerking classic and definitely one to dougie to. The beat changes up repeatedly, renewing the energy of the production. Whichever dance moves take your fancy this is no doubt a track to boogie down to. Hip-hop heads will like this tune the best on the EP.

Track Three: Inglewood

Reppin’ the West Coast to the fullest, Far East Movement preach “only fuck with bad bitches’. You can hear elements of a sample from the Biggie classic ‘Big Poppa’, but turned up a notch into all the electronic craziness you’d expect from Far East Movement. So far this is the most fast paced track on the EP perfect for head bangers and mosh pits alike.

Track Four: The Illest (Rell The Soundbender Remix) Feat Riff Raff

Probably the most commercial track on the EP, Far East Movement add some spunk to the track with their rap verse and vocals, appealing to a wider audience. Fist pump away to the thrills and heavy bassline present on the track.

Despite the clear evidence, Soulja Boy insisted that he was still the "comeback king" of last year due to his other business ventures. "I HAD THE BIGGEST COMEBACK OF 2018," he wrote. "I RELEASED MY OWN VIDEO GAME CONSOLE IM THE FIRST RAPPER IN HISTORY TO DO SO!"

As previously reported, Soulja first made the declaration during his interview on The Breakfast Club on Jan. 16. Meek Mill, Tory Lanez, and Lil Yachty previously defended Tyga against Soulja's remarks. Additionally, Soulja took shots at Drake, Kanye West, and the Migos for influencing their musical style.

DAWN Relishes In Self-love On New Song "Sauce"

DAWN is back with a sexy single off her forthcoming project, New Breed. "Sauce" is a sonic ode to pleasing all her hedonistic sexual desires after a long work week. Lyrically, the song is filled with suggestive lines and clever double-entendres that are far from coy when describing what she wants in the sack.

Just as much as “Sauce” is about sex, it’s also about basking in self-pleasure that comes after genuine self-love. In a statement published by Stereogum, the former Danity Kane member described the message behind the song:

“‘Sauce" is about women taking pride in their prowess, and about being raised to celebrate my skin,” DAWN said. “I lost focus of that when so many men degraded and disrespected my brown skin. ‘Sauce’ is about being bathed in your own beauty, being sexy for you. The new breed of women are unapologetic about sex and the way they choosing to express themselves.”

DAWN recently joined Aubrey O’Day and Shannon Bex of Danity Kane for the DK3 reunion tour across the U.S. In an interview with Billboard, the Louisiana native revealed she wants to give fans more of her authentic self on New Breed.

“This album is my relationship with New Orleans, me as a woman, and how being from New Orleans has created a person in me that acts and sees things a certain way. "'Jealousy'" is a prime example of that,” she said. “I just want to give you the girl from the 9th Ward that you guys only met once on [MTV's] Making The Band.”

Listen to "Sauce" below. New Breed drops on Jan, 25.
