Los Angeles hip hop act lil aaron is racking up some major win points with his collaborative efforts of late. Last month, he teamed up with Y2K on a groundbreaking song named DAMN, which I classified as “future hip hop”. Now, lil aaron has linked up with Washington, DC duo SoySauce on a gritty new anthem named BOUT TIME. Last year, SoySauce donated 15,000 meals to kids who couldn’t afford school lunches with the money they raised with their Lunch Money EP. BOUT TIME is a celebration of that benevolent feat. BOUT TIME is a hooking hip hop and future beats wobbler, and it leaves me wanting more SoySauce and lil aaron collaborations.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from Baltimore electronic act Goldwash, it’s that I like this newfangled thing named “existential funk”, a term which he himself created to describe his music. The singer songwriter and producer debuted a brand new existential funk tune today on Nest HQ, a bubbly, spiky, swanky future funk masterpiece fittingly named Need To Hear. The playful and agile song takes on a life of its own as it pops, crackles, and arpeggios vibrantly.

The Philadelphia based producer, whose roots lie in classical piano, combines those background skills with his melodic dubstep prowess to craft a soaring, uplifting anthem in Foundations.

Last year, Santa Cruz electronic auteur Bassnectar unleashed his Into The Sun album. One of the mind bending tracks off the album, Science Fiction, was a collaboration with a producer I’d never heard of previously named LUZCID, who certainly piqued my interest with the wicked guest stint. Fast forward to now and the producer from Houston has entrapped me in a quilted web of magnificence on new song Everyday. Dubstep, future bass, soul, and trap interlace and fuse into one powerfully vicious and savage beast not of this world or time, though it contains artifacts of our past and fragments of the present. Download the inky dark leviathan for free, here, before it rocket blasts its way back to whence it came from.

I literally felt chills creeping up my spine last week while I was listening to this producer from Miami named Havok Roth, who dishes out a blazing brand of hard hitting bass music. It’s a head jarring, brain rattling thrill ride on his first track of the year, a blood pressure raising trap inferno named Mothership which premiered with Nest HQ. Havok Roth will have you wired for days. If you’re new to Havok Roth as I was last week, you’ll want to continue with more of his craftmanship after the eye widening, jaw dropping, jolting experience on Mothership. Plunge into a tumultuous sea of shocking drops and monumental escalations on Havok Roth’s remix of Jay Cosmic’s Supercell down below. Mothership is a free download, here, and the Jay Cosmic remix is also free, here.

JOYRYDE is a fast rising producer who’s setting the trap scene ablaze, having been supported by the likes of DJ Snake, Major Lazer, Big Gigantic, Yellow Claw, Tchami, Jauz, Knife Party, NGHTMRE, GRiZ, Ephwurd, Ghastly, and many more already. He kicks off 2016 with a filthy wicked trap joint named Windows, a ripped monster of a tune that was originally written as a collaboration effort with Shaquille O’Neal, but Rick Ross ended up filling in the vocals instead. The lurching, swerving track is is so vicious that I wonder if any windows could survive a rightful high volume blast of the track. I suppose that’s why you need to cruise with the swag windows down.

There’s certainly some hot electronica cooking down in Southern California these days. Los Angeles’ Templeton inspires us to go harder tonight than we did last night and really work it with a slamming g-house remix of Richard by Julius Jetson and P.Keys. The rousing track pits some acid house with loads of UK garage, giving us a ZHU meets Soulwax sort of vibe that has my skin crawling with sinister joy. Free download of the wicked track, here.

A mysterious producer from Los Angeles named liminl is breaking ground and winning hearts with his music. On new song Reach, liminl joins forces with a bewitching vocalist named Rozzi Crane, whose powerful, soaring vocals rise gloriously over a blend of deep house beats and soulfully dark garage. It’s nearly surprising liminl is from Los Angeles instead of the UK, considering his bass heavy underground sound and a hypnotic handle on atmospherically textured rhythm. I’m much convinced both producer and vocalist will be ones to watch as the year progresses. Reach is too stunning a song not to lead me to that conclusion. Download Reach for free, here.

The behemoth banger comes from Yellow Claw’s highly anticipated album Blood For Mercy, out November 20th. Pre-order from Mad Decent.

Let’s go with some dirty bass on legendary Birmingham producer Low Steppa’s remix of  Robosonic & KRS-One’s Free Flow. We’re met firmly with classic horns and stabbing synths on the slamming house track. Gritty percussion and an unmerciful rhythm makes this a real chest pounding club banger. KRS-One’s vocals slices through the heaving track, leaving me wishing today were Friday instead of Monday. This one necessitates some body moving. It demands it. Low Steppa’s epic remix is available now on his label Simma Black. Purchase now on Beatport.
