Recently, one of my friends was assigned to remake a remix of Grammy-nominated duo Disclosure’s “You & Me” for a magazine company. Flume, one of my favorite producers to this day, innovated the marriage between electronic music and hip hop, which is today’s future bass genre. There are plenty of mashups that uses this infamous remix but this one by JANET JACK’SON is by far one of my favorites. Check out the rest of this compiled playlist of this week’s favorite mashups and visit the artists’ respective social media outlets.

This week’s spotlight playlist features a lot of collaboration tracks across the board and features the Brooklyn-based duo Brasstracks that effectively blends orchestral roots to today’s future bass movements. Using a trumpet and drums, this duo never fails to remind me of my orchestra days back in high school. On the flip side, Lido is one of the few producers that sound good on every track he produces. The songs in this playlist displays his prowess as as a multifaceted musician. He’s known for surprise drops and adding different elements of various genres. Many others songs are in this jam-packed starter for your weekend so check out the playlist below and follow our Soundcloud page for other featured playlists weekly.
Previously one-half of the beatmaking duo TNGHT, the first track of Hudson Mohawke’s sophomore album Lantern dropped and it features singer Irfane. At first glance, the track breaks barriers as it captures the sounds of chiptune, future bass, vocal samples, and a heavy drum rhythm the pulsates through out the drop. If you thought Hudson Mohawke created music that layed the foundation of future bass music a few years ago, then you wouldn’t be surprised how far he came and changed up his style once again on this forthcoming album. Be sure to check the new single out and look out for the album on June 16.
“I’m claiming ownership of my legacy…Look at it: At.Long.Last.A$AP. A-L-L-A. Like slang for ‘Allah.’ It’s the return of the god MC. I’m named after Rakim, and I’m finally facing what it means: I was born to do this shit. And I hope I get to do it for a very long time.”
Today’s videos of the day features the singer/songwriter JMSN and Major Lazer x DJ Snake feat. MØ. These cuts are a prime example of where the music industry is headed, variations of the R&B/pop and electronic music genres. JMSN, hailing from Michigan, reminds you of a lush blend of Justin Timberlake and Mike Posner. On the other hand, Major Lazor’s new single Lean On, off the new album Paradise is the Mission blends tropical house, trap, and moombahton. Check out the respective videos below.
