When I think about DJ Mustard, I’m immediately transported back to his set at Outside Lands Music Festival last August, when a midday set had an ever stretching, never ending sea of people dancing and jumping in euphoric frenzy at the Twin Peaks stage. It was glorious, to say the least. That man can drop some thrilling trap and hip hop, and he’s teamed up with Travis Scott on his latest, a melodically ensnaring trap and progressive song named Whole Lotta Lovin. The duo released a new video for the track today, more than enough reason to jump into the song’s club ready beats and hooking coos, which feel very Jack Ü meets Calvin Harris. Whole Lotta Lovin is available on iTunes.

There’s been plenty of covers floating around this month, of which likely 90% have been covers of Adele’s record breaking Hello. I didn’t expect that a Travi$ Scott cover would stop me in my tracks and keep me adoringly captivated the way Moxie Raia does on Drugs You Should Try It. The crisp, flawless clarity and sass of the American chanteuse’s voice cut through the sparse production of the cover effortlessly, much in the way that hotly buzzing artist Alessia Cara’s voice can strike chords. But there’s also an extra ounce of sultriness, an additional layer of BANKS huskiness to Moxie Raia that renders her cover haunting and gut wrenching dark. It likely doesn’t need to be said, but keep an eye on this starlet.

Ash Riser is a Los Angeles based artist who may sound familiar to you, as he’s guested on songs by Kendrick Lamar and other big names before. His latest genre bending track is a compelling cover of Travis Scott’s Drugs You Should Try. It’s a simmering, soulful, stripped down rock version carrying much raw poignancy. From what I’ve listened to from Ash, his music mixes a huge plethora of flavors, ranging between soul, hip hop, funk, rock, and electronic.
