Travis Scott – Sicko Mode (Skrillex Remix)

Skrillex just guaranteed that “Sicko Mode” will be played at every club, festival, and party. Skrillex not so long ago remixed Kendrick Lamar’s humble and made that such a heavy rotation-track.  The remix feels more like 4 edits on the drums with a remixed middle part that has more of the Skrillex-sound we know. It feels very minimal and that works in the favor of this track because it will guarantee more plays in the clubs for its lack of experimentation. The best part has to be the Jersey Club section that comes in at 4:25.

The Jersey Club section has me wondering if we’re going to hear some Jersey Club collaborations with Skrillex. It would be a smart move and hopefully, he has something in the works with DJ Sliink or even some other producers from the Club community. Skrillex is definitely smart and obviously will benefit from riding this wave, but it feels much more like one of those shout-outs to the culture of Club sound. The placement of the club section of Sicko Mode is placed at the end; ensuring that it got the last attention of the listener.

 

Overall, this track was already good and we all have been playing this song multiple times. Thankfully, you can now add to your party playlist with an even more uptempo vibe remix. This song will do well with those people who like to dabble in EDM (There’s a difference) and those who like the heavy Bass, Jungle Terror, Jersey Club and Dubstep elements.

If you haven’t heard the “Humble” Remix by Kendrick Lamar. Checking out this remix is a must. Skrillex has been successful with the Rap remixes and releases. We see how successful “Wild for the night” with A$AP Rocky was. We can only expect even more of this style to come out.

CARNAGE – HIJUEPUTA FT. GRAVEDGR

Carnage is back at it again with a free release for our collection. Carnage has really been pumping out music and even collaborated on an EP with Young Thug titled Young Martha. This release for the core Carnage fans is a nice follow up to his releases. The track features GRAVEDGR, an unknown and mysterious artist who is under the same management as SAYMYNAME and under the All Access Management. GRAVDGR seems to be the latest member of the Heavyweight Records collective founded by Carnage.

The song Hijueputa is a festival ready track and starts off with some heavy kicks thats reminiscent of Hard House music. The track then begins a buildup with some vocal melodies and then becomes extremely aggressive. The music stops and then the song builds up to some beautiful chord progressions and goes back into the Hardstyle sound. The track overall seems like parts of different songs but offers something for everyone to find enjoyment in. I personally love that chord buildup at two minutes and twenty seconds into the song.

The Cut: More Meat, Less Fat

The Cut: More meat, Less Fat
The Cut: More meat, Less Fat

There are many tracks out there that are hidden by the fat of less delicious tracks. As a part-time butcher of music discovery(and meat in real life), I will cut out the fat and show you the freshest cuts of meat (tracks) in this new segment we call “The Cut”. We will feature all kinds of cuts ranging from Bass, House, and downtempo vibes. 

 

The first track on our list is a remix by Calvin Harris and features a Deep House element that makes this cut a funky and bouncy track. The deep bassline really guides the track along and makes for an awesome House track.

This next track is a release on Medium Rare Recordings (kinda fitting for this article) and the track is just filthy and heavy. Its on some dark house vibes with heavy bass synths and intricate percussions all mixed in.

Another aggressive song with house elements and electro vibes.

Yookie really killing it with the music and this latest track is like something from a horror movie. Really nostalgic bass sounds similar to the dubstep duo 16BIT from back in the golden dubstep days.

Ok, so mostly everything is bass driven in this article, but thats fine because this Future Bass track gives you some next level bass waves and synths that compliment this remix of Post Malones I fall Apart
