If I was going on Naked and Afraid, I would bring Sam Gellaitry’s new EP “Escapism” with me just to make sure we would be able to start a fire. This project is incredible and Sam just continues to get better with everything he puts out. This has to be in your best of 2015 list if you are a fan of instrumental driven, “future” bass. It will be on repeat for me all day. #Sodamngood
You gotta love it when an artist takes the time to really make a remix/refix/refilpre-whatever their own. The homie JULiA LEWiS take some inspiration from the Bull’s official warm up music in his tribute to the OG Jumpman himself.
From JULiA LEWiS:
More than a nod to drake or future, this one is an ode to Michael jordan (a childhood hero *pre-gambling problems, *pre-misogyny, lol). He wasn’t just an athletic inspiration for me, but also a model for work ethic and determination. I transposed the Chicago bulls warmup song to fit underneath parts of the beat, to bring it all together. Can you catch it?
Another amazing collab for Gravez, this time teaming up with PYRMDPLAZA on “UsVsU”. This track is like a funky ride into outer space and was conjured up in London during an early morning session after these guys had just met. Pure fire.
One of the better songs I’ve heard all week. I know I’ve been extra heavy on the hip hop but you can expect to find some other dope electronic songs like this banger from graves and Jupe on #FutureFeels 17 which should be dropping in the next couple of days.

I know my posts have been few and far between this summer. While still trying to land some kind of steady job, I have not been able to really get back into any sort of regular flow of posting. Then came the depression and all shit just went to hell. The worst is far behind me now and I want to get back into working around the things that I love. This blog has always been a part of me and while I know it barely gets any traffic anymore, it still gives me a chance to collect and share all of the music that inspires me every day.
I will soon be launching a new site to compliment AlwaysHustle. The new site (FutureFeels.com) will be focused around the relationship between music and fashion. It will have few words and lots of imagery and hopefully it will connect two of my passions in a way that will get people excited about what your favorite artists are wearing.
I have also taken on a new gig at MagneticMag.com where I will be managing their hip hop content. I have lots of great things in the works and with time I hope to connect all of these projects under my Quickstrike Media brand and establish a true platform for the content I love and really care about. I will keep you all posted on everything and for now I have 2 playlists filled with dope music for you to check out. Enjoy and I’ll hopefully have more posts for you soon.
XVII is going to be a big deal very soon. The more I go out in LA, the more I hear his remixes and original tracks and I am not mad at this at all. “Pity Party” from Melanie Martinez is not something I would normally post but this remix (especially after the second drop) is just too catchy and smooth not share.
Pity Party remixes coming August 28th via Atlantic Records
Just playing catchup here. I couldn’t post 12 without throwing up some of the stuff I found over the last month and a half or so. I’m not going to link everything up but you should be able to track most of the artists I’ve featured just through soundcloud.
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.
