TroyBoi’s “Hooper” A Slam Dunk From New Album ‘Left Is Right’

Troyboi is the king of all things swag in music. Every beat this man touches brings groove, funk and a little uumphh with it. Gearing up to release his new album ‘Left Is Right’, the british bass and hiphop “Music Manipulation Specialist” has premiered the first single “Hooper”. The game of rhythm in “Hooper” begins with a kick drum reminiscent of a certain Flume track and Healthy Chill spitting bars. The beat is minimal with naught but the rise of white noise building to the drop. Healthy delivers a final lyric and we’re warmly welcomed by TroyBoi’s head-bob inducing beat more »

Scissors Burst the Pop Music Bubble [FREE DOWNLOAD]

“Face the facts” – as they say. Well “they” actually don’t show their faces but what they do show, is a great taste in music. They call themselves “Scissors” and they just droped a remix of LA producer Nathaniel Knows’s single “Do You Even”. From the forward moving Electro original, the track received an allover renovation to fit into the newer future bass genre. The song takes the elements of the original and elevates them to an existence beyond that of your average remix. To take something and give it a new energy is a wonderful way to pay tribue more »

One of the producers at the cutting edge of South Africa’s rapidly solidifying bass scene is CHEE. CHEE has a fresh take on sound design and a refreshing approach to production, with a constant need to push boundaries and limits. It is fitting to say that CHEE is one of the leaders of the more »
