Happy Thursday, everyone! It’s almost the weekend! In celebration, I’ve prepared a pretty unique playlist that includes everything from trap to hip-hop to dubstep to genres I can’t even describe. Enjoy!
1. Heartbeat ft. Collin McLoughlin – Vicetone
This is my favorite song right now, hands down. It’s catchy, the vocals are awesome and the beat is fun. Monstercat never fails to put out excellent music, and this song is no exception. I’ve had it stuck in my head for days!
2. Horizon ft. Nilu – Singularity
Looking for some epic trance? This song is 100 percent beautiful. It’s categorized on SoundCloud as “lovestep,” but I’d lean more toward calling it trance for sure. Strong vocals backed up by heavy-hitting beats make for 4 minutes and 8 seconds of awesomeness.
3. Hold On – Nervo
Words can’t even express my love for the lovely ladies that make up Nervo. This song was posted on SoundCloud about 24 hours ago and already has more than 100,000 plays. They’re that good. This song has somber, enticing vocal layers that capture the listener and transport them to another world. I’m absolutely addicted, and I can’t WAIT to see them at Spring Awakening in June.
4. Locked Out of Heaven (Sultan + Ned Shepard remix) – Bruno Mars
I’ve always been a big Bruno Mars fan. I love his voice, and I love the emotion he is able to convey through his lyrics. But, of course, I always go searching for solid remixes of my favorite songs to evaluate. This is an exceptionally good one.
5. Let’s Do It – Basscrooks
Lately, I’ve been all about Basscrooks. I love their mixes, I loved seeing them live in March and I especially love this song. This song is guaranteed to be stuck in your head for the next week or so after hearing it. It has a light feel to it until about 2 minutes in when it goes pretty hard. Just check it out, you’ll see what I mean
6. Scumbag – Bro Safari
Speaking of Basscrooks, I actually found this song through one of their mixes. Sure, the lyrics are awful. BUT IT’S SO DAMN CATCHY! I can’t stop listening to it. Trap at its finest for sure.
7. Bright Lights – Sammy Adams
I’m a huge Mike Stud and Huey Mack fan, so it’s only natural that I’m a Sammy Adams fan too. This song came out about a week ago, and I love it! It’s not too hardcore as far as rap goes, but Adams still shines as usual.
8. Simon Says (Brillz & ETC!ETC! Bootleg) – Pharoahe Monch
Switch gears from the lighthearted Sammy Adams song over to this hard, dark-feeling trap song. Using Michael Jackson-esque “woo”s to introduce a heavy bass drop, these guys bring in an excellent trap beat that’s hard not to dance to. All-around epic and catchy at the same time.
9. Superheroes Anonymous Vol. 1 – Adventure Club
Though this is much longer than one song (it’s actually a mix), I thought I’d share it on here anyway. Adventure Club never disappoints, and this mix is completely rage-y and epic in every way you’d expect it to be.
10. Stay ft. Rocky Nti – Jakwob
This song is completely, 100 percent different from anything I usually post on this blog. However, I’m head-over-heels addicted to this song. I can’t compare it to anything because it’s very unique. The only thing I can do is recommend it over and over and over. It’s beautiful in every way possible.
