Holly has recruited Gunplay and OKAY! KENJI for his new single On Me, out today. On Me is the 3rd single that Holly has released from his upcoming EP on Insomniac Records, Alameda 1000, dropping September 13th. On Me featured Gunplay at his best, reminding his enemies that he’s not one to play with, flowing seamlessly over Holly’s bass-heavy production, with additional production credits from the Atlanta-based producer OKAY! KENJI.
“Gunplay has been one of my favorite rappers since I first heard “Ghetto Symphony” in 2013. It’s crazy how I used to listen to his music before I even began making music on my own, and now we’re on the same record together. I can’t thank OKAY! KENJI enough for helping bring this track to life as well.” – remarks Holly on his collab with Gunplay and OKAY! KENJI
Holly is a Portuguese producer who frequently merges hip-hop and bass/trap music, establishing himself as one of the more forward thinking producers and the saturated world of EDM. Previously released singles from this new EP include Till I Die feat. A$AP TyY and NXSTY , and Through Me. Holly made his debut performance at EDC Las Vegas and Coachella earlier this year, two iconic festivals in the touring circuit, and will also be playing at EDC Korea at the end of August.

Wuki has unveiled a brand new reprise of his song, ‘She Got Some’ feat. Jay Davi, reworking one of his most beloved tracks to date. The reprised version of ‘She Got Some’ is the latest release on Wuki’s new label, Wukileaks, and just the second release from the label’s debut project, Wukipedia Vol. 1, following up ‘Chop It’ feat. Bri Berlay.
‘She Got Some’ is an upbeat booty-house tune that will ratched up the energy on just about any dancefloor. Wuki previously released the song a couple years ago, but has now unleashed a brand new rework that enhances the sonic qualities that made Wuki’s loyal legion of followers fall in love with the track in the first place. The reprised version of ‘She Got Some’ takes on an even more trap-infused direction, with a filthy brass drop that should have booties shaking even harder than the original.

Chuurch are a little known Canadian production duo with a big future ahead of them. With previous releases on This Ain’t Bristol, Perfect Driver and Deadbeats – the Calgary-based duo are gearing up to release their Uunion EP on NEST this Friday as a free download.
Today, they’ve teased the forthcoming EP by dropping a new single: Erase The Pain feat. Blak Trash. Chuurch teamed up with Blak Trash, a Northern California-based rap duo who’s hypnotizing, monotonous flows pairs perfectly with Chuurch’s minimalist production.
This song bangs so hard, we kinda wish Blak Trash would release a full project purely filled with Chuurch production. For the meantime, we’ll settle for the forthcoming Uunion EP that Chuurch is dropping as a free download on NEST, this Friday

2 in one day? Maybe I should listen to music a bit more often.. Andrew Luce has a solid ear and his production quality is top shelf for sure. The shining star on this mixtape is the collab with XVII, who we already know will be taking over 2016. Fire Fire Fire. Enjoy!
22 hand picked tracks from last week. I think you might find some surprises on this weeks list which included several artists with less than 1,000 followers on Soundcloud. If you had to pick an MVP of week 6, who would it be? I’m going to start writing features on the artists with the most popular tracks. This will probably start next week.
Monstercat continues to work with some of the best producers on earth including the man behind this post, Dutch born San Holo. His Victory EP is just brilliant. The production quality and melody selections are top tier and I would pay good money to see this guy live. The only issue I have with this project is that it’s only 3 tracks long! I first heard the title track “Victory” about a week ago and decided to wait for the full release before posting. I know I’ve posted a lot of EPs today but you can’t slow this music down and as long as it keeps coming my way, I’ll do my best to keep it going out to you. Enjoy!
Damn this entire project just just so dope, This is my first taste of the work of Sam Khatam aka “Persian Empire” and I know it will not be my last. Germany has always been known for it’s talented producers in electronic music but I don’t think I’ve ever heard somebody with beats like this come out of Deutschland before. I love his use of samples on his tracks which is often missing in a lot of today’s “Bass” or “future bass” music. Check out his bio and links below and support “DONC” with a dl from his bandcamp page. Straight fire right here!
Sam Khatam better known as Persian Empire is a young upcoming producer from Germany.
Music was always a big influence in Sam’s life, therefore it’s hard to date the beginning of Persian Empire. After traditional music lessons in his youth, Sam discovered the great variety of the electronic music scene, which he became acquainted with.
In 2011 he started to produce his own compositions, by using selfmade sounds along with edited samples. The self-taught artist deconstructs the traditional structure of music and transforms his samples into a detailed electronic sound. Smooth synthesizers, deep bass beats and experimental vocals create harmonic compositions, which extend the diversity of the “bass” and “2-step” genre. When he isn’t producing his own music, Sam is collaborating with selected artists from around the world and gets featured in numerous blogs and mixes.
In a short period of time he found his own way of expression to meet with good response within the community.
I’ve only been following MISOGI for a couple of months and everything I have experienced thus far has just been a pure joy to listen to. There isn’t a lot of info out about this mysterious producer but as I like to say a lot these days, the music speaks for its self. The vibe of this 6 track ep is full on future feels. You can close your eyes to this and go wherever you need to go, be it a state of focus and deep concentration or a lost world of distraction. There is a steady balance of good vs evil through out the entire project with plenty dark, almost medieval trap vibes, paired beautifully with synths that seem almost angelic at times. This is exactly what I want to hear from a “future bass” type of ep and I think Misogi has the potential to take this whole style of production to another level if he continues to build off of this solid foundation. Check it out for yourself and feel free to donate some fundage at the links below. These producers have to eat too ya know.
