Daniel T. – Heat-Wave

Los Angeles based DJ/Producer Daniel Terndrup aka Daniel T., has announced the release of his debut album Heliotrope. The sun kissed first single is ‘Heat-Wave’ a shimmering piece of disco/house named after his radio show and weekly party night at Gold Diggers. The fastidious record collector and prolific remixer formerly constituted one half of Cosmic Kids alongside Ron Poznansky before going solo and releasing his globally focused and sonically kaleidoscopic debut mini-album Tetrachromat in 2015. Cannot wait to lay the ears on the full album which sports collaboration on vocals from Ohara Hale and Eiko Hara, plus a cameo by Poolside’s Filip Nikolic aka Turbotito.

Weezer – Say It Ain’t So (Young Bombs Remix)

Just in case you weren’t aware, way back on May 10th 1994, Weezer released their self-titled debut studio album. That epic release featured 10 classic anthems, but “Say It Ain’t So” may be the most notable single from the album. And over the 24+ years since the album’s release, that single has taken over the world, leaving fans wanting more.

Enter Young Bombs, who have recently dropped massive remixes of Post Malone, Khalid, Bazzi, Kygo & Miguel. Today, they return with another mind-blowing remix, this time, taking on Weezer’s smash hit “Say It Ain’t So.”

Untitled – Eighty-Two

Little is known about the band Untitled, but their debut track, Eighty-Two, has that perfect eighties vibe that’s optimistic and catchy. We’ve been playing it all weekend long and are looking forward to hearing more from them.

ODESZA – Loyal

Odesza just hit us with an official version of track they’ve been playing out live for years! The duo’s most loyal followers couldn’t be happier, because this one has been a long, long time coming.

Before now, the only way to hear this gem was to see an Odesza show. Toward the end of any given set, there’s a moment where Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight go as hard as possible and leave it all on the stage. It’s usually when “Loyal,” or some working version of it until this point, comes on and totally blasts the crowd with deep horns and all the feels at once.

Odesza has worked this track to utter perfection over the years. “Loyal” builds up to its epic drop through deep tribal roots, with enticing chants and the duo’s signature drumline sounds in the mix. Now, that we have the finished result, it was well worth the wait.

WIKI – In The Park (ft. Gloss Gang)

Wiki has a remarkable way of bottling up New York in his raps. The young Manhattan MC is frantic and frenetic, and his verses sprawl across the city, but he also uncovers little revelations and moments of peace amid the noise. He snarls lucid inner monologues and shouts out frazzled, beer-spilling party raps in the same verse.

His latest single, “In the Park,” might be unsubtle, in that is another song that reminds us New York is the birthplace of hip-hop. And in the hands of a lesser rapper, this would seem like a nostalgic put-on—just another tracing of the genre’s lineage. But Wiki sounds like he’s holding court in a skate park, not standing at a lectern: “It all started in the city/Now they know us in the sticks,” he yells. The Tony Seltzer-produced beat is a little wonky, with the jumble of a ragtime piano riff and fluttering flute boxed in by a thumping bassline. The whole song is a playground for chest-thumping shit-talk, and the upstart Brooklyn duo Gloss Gang—rising rappers themselves—help turn it into a boisterous cypher. Swook and 700Stackzs chip in fun, chatty verses but it’s Wiki who makes “In the Park” not just lively but lived-in, and steeped in a sense of place. At one point, something in the cityscape catches Wiki’s eye and yanks him away from his own scene: “Heard ‘honk-honk’ and I hopped up in the hoopty,” he blurts out before it all ends. Not many rappers can effectively hold a mirror up to their city, but Wiki drops you right inside of his world.
