shortsIt’s Hot.  It’s breezy.  It’s new JSTJR, new AMB Beats, new DJ Mike R, new Moduloktopus, and new Peacethefvckout.  There is no way you could go wrong with this post playing while you soak up some tropical sun. Who knows, maybe if you play these previews on repeat, the artists might release them sooner..?  Either way, show these homeys some love.  Get your shortys on BAE.  Let’s Get Tropical.

Big things coming once again from the man called JSTJR on his latest, as posted on Soundcloud.  This guy is relentless with his productions, always bringing that tempo down so you can get your sexy party on, wherever you are (even the bus).  It sounds like Rasterhina and twerk had a baby, and named it ‘JSTJR – Party‘.  Heads are going to roll, and asses are going to drop to the ground when this comes out, no question about it.


The name of AMB Beats‘ latest song  says it all:  ‘Made In China‘.  A playful romp through a very newschool Chinese sounding melody, we can’t wait for the full version of this to drop.  It’s even got 808 drums like we like.  Right in line with that tropical trap vibe, the flute in this song really sets the whole thing off, and more than nicely.

 Oh, a pair of shorts wasn’t enough?  How about one more, and a fresh pair of full versions on the side.

For the last preview of the day, we head over to visit DJ MiKE R, and sample some sounds sourced from serious skill sets.  Tropical?  You know it.  From the beat on up to the monkey call, right to the second that synth lead hits, it’s nothing but spine hair tingling anticipation.  If you’re not already dead by the time the beat drops, you will be after.  Send this man a message, and tell him you want the full version A.S.A.P.

Our first full version comes to us from Moduloktopus, blending crazy pitched up vocals, Dembows, Dubstep, Breaks, and more, this tune is pure hype.  It’s reminiscent of old UK Hardcore songs and Juke, but definitely has more of a modern spin on it than anything else.  Not only is it hype as fuck by nature, IT HAS A SOLO.  When is the last time you heard a keyboard solo in a dance music track?  It feels like these guys are on to this whole renaissance thing, heavily.  Playful, free spirited, and a killer combination of fast and slow, this song makes us happy.


Wait tho…What day is it..?  IT’S MOOMBAHTON MONDAY.  In honour of that, PEACETHEFVCKOUT just (about an hour a go) put out a bad ass banger of a Moombahton beast.  That lead…Where have I heard a lead like that before..?  OH YEAH.  New life for a classic synth on this latest sonic offering from one of the dopest of the dope up and comers. All the artists we’re posting are, though, Obviously.


Don’t stop dancing, and stay tuned for next week’s edition!
