Look at you; you survived that embarrassing barrage of questions that your grandmother hits you with at the Thanksgiving dinner table. You sat through drunk uncles doing old dances to even older tracks, and have been rewarded with delicious leftovers and peace and quiet. You might still be in your mom’s house, and some of your homies from high school are around. It’s time to go ham for another glorious day/night, and we have a batch of beats for you to wild out to.
RL Grime ft. Djemba Djemba – “Valhalla”
RL Grime’s album Void is the kind of shit you need to go bananas to. Collaborations with Djemba Djemba make everything that much more insane, especially when laced with a video that feels like the world might be coming to an end ASAP.
T_A_M – “Panchollo”
Spastic, hectic, and amazing, “Panchollo” is the tune you need to throw on when it’s time to just go nuts.
O.T. Genasis – “Coco (Stabber & Lazy Ants Bootleg)”
“CoCo” has been super remixed, but for good reason; O.T. is just that damn charismatic. Surprisingly, I hadn’t heard too many remixes that focus on the “BAKING SODA” line, so this booming club bootleg fits right into what I want my life to be.
Friction – “Chimera”
Dangerously hypnotic drum & bass beast right here, taken from the 10-year anniversary compilation from Friction’s Shogun Audio imprint.
Anna Lunoe’s “B.D.D. Remixes” EP
Material like this is made for those who want to turn the lights off in their mother’s den and dance in a circle with three of their closest friends. Get sweaty and bond.
Yung Gud’s “Beautiful, Wonderful” EP
Yung Gud does what I wish Hucci did. This EP is pure flames; “Forever 2001” FTW.
Patrick Brian’s “Sodalite” release for Terrorhythm Elements
Two grime-y freebies from LA’s own Patrick Brian. Love the 8bar madness.
Jackmaster’s 2014 Mastermix
Jackmaster provides THE mix that’ll get you through any slump. Almost two hours of bliss.
Wolfgang Gartner ft. Bobby Saint – “Unholy (Amtrac Remix)”
Amtrac wins with his space-y house excellence. Dude’s not done a bad thing.
Moving Castle Vol. 003
Superfuture feels from a collective of like-minded beatsmiths. Perfect way to come down.
