Selections by : wave Groove
1) Dibia$e - Madness :
This one has so much funk in the sample selection. Heavy beats and a nice flip of Summer Madness. Dibia$e always throwing style like no tomorrow. Shoutout to the Rootnote Collective for putting this out.
2) Hermitude - Through The Roof (HWLS Remix)
This HWLS remix dropped sometime last week and was hitting my stream heavy. I can hear why. Ta-Ku and Kit Pop did a great job on this, again in usual fashion with great change up and drop points to keep it interesting throughout. The horns in the song really give it a nice tuff texture.
3) Mike Gao - Pivot
I'm really enjoying Mike Gao's new release on alpha pup. The song has good technique in exploring 90+ BPM / 'Function' feel. At the start he has great choice in chord progression and when the song gets to the next change up the bass synth kills me every time, similar to his collaboration track 'Feel to be real' (MIGAMO/MONEY).
4) PYRMDPLAZA - Glassss (Graves Remix)
The original version of this song was really eye opening to me, mainly because the 'Glass' melody had so much funk to ride with the nice drums and sequencing that got laced with it. Let me tell you, this remix is fire and only adds to my experience I shared with the original. Graves begins with a B'more house introduction then does a full 180 degrees slap to get back down to the half time. The remix has a great synth lead and synth 'bleep' that remixes the song with a different texture.
5) R.O.M - i don't need you (or do i?)
This one I found from R.O.M is super fly. The drums, the Jhene Aiko sample, synth pad, and subtle xylophone hits all combine to make a nice listening experience. The 808 / sub slaps nicely to give it such a funky texture - keep up the good work R.O.M
6) Gypsy Mamba - Grandpa
Gypsy Mamba has so much style and heavy change up transitions. This release that he did for SMOG (Cigs and Sodas) is a complete package that doesn't fall short of expectation. Look out for more music coming out from Gypsy Mamba.
