Super Bowl weekend, and you need some beats? We’ve got you covered. This might not be the GET YOUR ASS HYPE FOR FOOTBALL RIGHT NOW collection, but if you have some friends over, are getting nice, and have the game on mute (except for when the commercials hit, duh), this is the proper collection for you.
DJ Rashad, MoonDoctoR & FreshtillDef – “Angel Dust”
Juke heaven. Seriously; juke heaven. And the WTF! album it’s resting on is a blessing for fans of footwork. Seriously. Juke heaven.
Tinashe – “Vulnerable (Jacuzzi Remix)”
The Hawaiian bass music scene is brighter because Jacuzzi’s in it. You have to love what he did with Tinashe’s vocal.
Angel Haze ft. Sia – “Battle Cry (MK Remix)”
MK reworking Angel Haze feels like the hip-house revival we (read: me) has been waiting for.
MikeQ & Sinjin Hawke – “ThunderScan”
Another Fractal Fantasy, this time with the mighty Mike Q linking up with (oh) Sinjin Hawke.
Migos – “Dope In My Sock (AC Slater Remix)”
Starts out like a trap’d up Migos blend, but once that night bass drops, this is an entirely different animal. And we love it.
Madeaux ft. Molly Williams – The Way EP
Feels like this guy is one huge single away from that limelight.
Danny Brown – “I Will (Shiftee & Rx Bootleg)”
This was resting in dubplate heaven for a minute, but this one is too nasty to let sit alone. The bassline alone is worth it.
Johnny Rain – “III (OZZIE & Hucci Remix)”
This might be for the #sadeyes massive, but OZZIE and Hucci are young trap lords of the UK scene. You need this.
ETC!ETC! & Snails – “RUBBR”
Rubber ducky brightness.
Heroes x Villains’ +CHAPEL+ EP
This had an accompanying art installation at Art Basel, and when you hear it, you’ll know why.
Blackedout – “Vessel”
On that downer tip, here’s Blackedout’s latest dip.
The M Machine – “Superflat”
Diss on Skrillex’s sound all you want; that guy knows how to sign talent, and The M Machine is one of the best things about his OWSLA imprint.
Bert On Beats – “Arriba”
We’ll send you out in style; here’s some festival-ready tropical bass bits.
