From the depths of the underground we will be bringing you some of our favorite up and coming tracks, producers and styles.
No genre is off limits in the electronic music realm while focusing on quality productions. From mixes to videos and singles, thatdrop’s tracks of the week will consist of tracks that caught our ear in the past week or two and provide you a chance to get exposed to some new music and artists. So without further ado, sit back and take in the first installment of “Top Ten Tracks thatdrop”.
Dirty Doses “Walking on a Dream” Rework
Many of us know the Empire of the Sun hit, “Walking on a Dream”. Dirty Doses’ touch of finesse and new breathe to the track makes it a chilled back house tune that exudes relaxation and calmness. Dirty Doses hail from Phoenix, AZ and are coming off a fire collaboration with Jameston Thieves and Ditta & Dumont. These guys are cementing their status early in their careers with these collaborations and are starting to prove their worth.
Sacha Robotti “Viral”
By now you should be familiar with Claude Von Stroke‘s label, DirtyBird. From Techno and House to the more deeper Tech House and Deep House, DirtyBird productions and producers have a knack for for creating their own sound. A new addition to the DirtyBird roster, German product Sacha Robotti just played a MixMag Los Angeles gig and is slated to play at the heavily DirtyBird influenced CRSSD Fest this weekend in San Diego.
Sacred Sciences “Lord of Darkness” Apolloyn Records
This producer from Los Angeles know no boundaries when it comes to producing his own original tracks. From DnB to Trap and everything in between, Sacred Sciences has always pushed the envelope with his creativity and style. This time he comes in with hard hitting and face melting Hardstyle track and yet again shows what he is capable of.
Mark Kincaid “Overwhelmed” Remix
Los Angeles native and local Mark Kincaid comes in with a chilled out and groovy rendition of Aryay‘s “Overwhelmed”. Perfect for warming things up coming into spring, Kincaid is starting to come into his own. With summer coming and new tracks, this could be quite a good year for the up and comer.
Purity Ring “Life” Rework
I haven’t been able to stop listening to this track since I first heard it. Purity Ring has always had my respect and now with this rework, they’ve gained even more of it. Gorgeous vocals and an aired out bass gives the track a ton of room sonically. The song talks about death and the unknown with Purity Ring also focusing on these themes throughout their career made this rework a perfect match.
San Holo “New Sky” Monstercat
San Holo has been enjoying a rise to stardom quietly but quickly as well. Coming off his OWSLA release with Yellow Claw, the Dutch producer is rising to the top of experimental and Future Bass styles with every passing week. Showing no signs of slowing down either, San Holo looks to continue to blend genres and fuse the bass together with original samples and blaze how own path.
Florian Picasso “Vanguard” Dim Mak
Florian Picasso’s latest comes to you via Dim Mak. Hailing from France, Florian provides a solid tune that is somewhat not usually featured by Dim Mak. A bit progressive and a driving force, “Vanguard” reminds me of Europe a bit. This come in with a good surprise and shows that Dim Mak is trying to be more and more diverse.
Jan Blomqvist ‘Remote Control’ Armada
German product Jan Blomquist has been pioneering electronic music for years now. With his album, ‘Remote Control’, Jan is yet again setting standards and mixing things up. Often times he plays alongside an actual band with other musicians as they portray and get their point across through various mediums and aesthetics.
G-REX “20K Mix”
G-REX has quickly become one of my favorite producers right now and once you check out this mix you’ll see why. Grimy and filthy bass and dubs are his game. Throw in some Trap and Hip Hop and you have terrifying hybrid of musical bliss and over exuberance. The Detroit native and Los Angeles transplant is still very much under the radar in most respects but that looks to be changing very soon.
Laura Lux “VODKAST Episode 1”
Last but not least is the lovely and talented Laura Lux with the first installment of her new mixtape, VODKAST. The Melbourne beauty shows her love for Melbourne Bounce as is expected but also throws in a few surprises. The mix is full of energy and there is no letting up for those Aussie beats and bumps. Laura Lux shows some versatility and provides a little taste of things to come.
