1. Regulators x Abel De Jong- “Throwin Bands”
The windy city duo teamed up with newcomer Abel De Jong for a tropi-cool track for the summer trap stars. One part big trap anthem, one part summer sunny vibes and a dash of hard style coupled with Cali Swag District- you can see why these guys are about to take over 2014.
2. Parade No.5- “Outbreak”
An aggressive trap tune filled with an amazing topline, coupled with ear-catching samples, this one will attract hip-hop listeners across the board. The fairly unknown Parade No.5 will represent just fine in the scene if they keep this up…
3. Stooki Sound- “Shut Up”
This represents a massive sound coming from the UK as of late. That underground vibe trap from Brighton and London has been nothing short of infectious. Stooki just put out a song that’s gonna keep people talking and remind everyone just who the hell they are. We’ll shut up now, so you can listen.
4. Deorro ft. Adrian Delgado – “All I Need Is Your Love” (D!RTY AUD!O Remix)
D!rty Aud!o and the Pandafunk crew come out strong with this one. As usual Deorro is keeping it in the Panda fam by selecting D!rty Aud!o to mix and mash his big room track, “All I Need Is Your Love.” More than often, these aural enterprises can go straight to hell, but not this time. It’s a song to sing to, a song to bounce to, it’s all you need.
5. Jimi Hendrix- “Kiss the Sky” (Dan Farber Remix)
Dan Farber must have quite the set of hairy boys to take this one on. A legendary song, if done correctly, becomes remixed by legend in the making, Dan Farber. This Israeli monster producer has taken the cult classic and made it an anthem for all who enjoy 808’s and rolling snares. Expect this to be at festivals everywhere, and for good reason.
6. Arty – “Up All Night” (Slander Remix)
Slander popped off this year with “Heaven Trap,” which has become their signature sound. This time, the Orange County duo meshes big chords, bass drops and harmonious melodies, ensuring everyone gets on the dance floor and stays there. Their first official release, remixing Arty’s “Up All Night” lives up to its name and doesn’t do any disservice to the original.
