Dimond Saints – Sum Luv

If the city of Oakland was a sound, Dimond Saints would be that sound. Beautiful, artistic, passionate, and oh-so-dark.

Oakland’s best bass duo continues to rise from the East Bay underground in their quest to take over the world by means of future bass domination. When that Dimond Saints sound drips and drops through a loaded sound system, our bodies turn to slaves in worship of our bass masters. Quite frankly, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Having seen their live show a few times recently, I kept hearing a certain track and wondering, “what was that dirty, filthy, amazing 808 shitstorm of bass devastation?” Yesterday, I got my answer, as Dimond Saints shared some love by releasing their new original track, “Sum Luv.” Like most of their music, it wobbles and it haunts, it kicks and it punches, it rips and it roars, and it mesmerizes both the body and mind. This is future bass in its most elegant form. It may sound dirty, but it’s as pure as it gets.

Dimond Saints has been taking the festival circuit by storm this year (with epic performances at Lightning in a Bottle, Northern Nights, Stilldream, and more), and “Sum Luv” has been their go-to summertime jam. Luckily for us bass lovers, it’s finally out there on SoundCloud and available to download for free. Dimond Saints are special. Keep an eye on these guys. They truly are the future of future bass. A Dimond Saints show is not something to be missed. Until then, turn up those subwoofers and prepare your body for the best beating it’s ever had.

G Jones – Ring the Alarm EP (Free Download)

It’s time to give those subwoofers a workout, boys and girls. West Coast bass music wizard G Jones released his new EP, Ring The Alarm, for free on Bandcamp today via SATURATE!RECORDS. As a tried and true connoisseur of West Coast future bass music, I have no problem admitting that Ring The Alarm is absolute top shelf material. Bass music really doesn’t get much better than this, and bass producers really don’t get much better than G Jones. An established master of his craft, G Jones is absolutely relentless with his new EP, rattling listeners’ eardrums and bodies with 9 brief-but-beefy bass bangers, including collaborations with Minnesota, Doshy, and Mad Zach. This one’s going to be on repeat for a while.

Each track is only a few minutes long (in fact, only two of them actually pass the 3-minute mark), but good things come in small packages. The distinguished West Coast bass sound drips throughout every second of this EP. Every kick, every clap, every horn, every synth leaves a heavy impact, and the booming bass is at once both chaotic and soothing. My personal favorite track on the EP is the Minnesota collaboration, “Orbital,” which is just more proof (if we even needed any) that these two Santa Cruz homies are the undisputed heavyweight champions of West Coast future bass music.

Check out the title track, “Ring The Alarm,” below. Then follow the download link, name your price on Bandcamp, and voila: free bass music! Also, check these tour dates to see if G Jones will be bringing his West Coast bass goodness to your hometown.

The Weeknd – Often (Kygo Remix)

The summer has produced a lot of highlights this far, one of which has been the rise to fame of the 22 year old Norwegian producer that goes simply by, Kygo. Kygo made a splash with his first North American tour which included stops at famous nightclubs like Webster Hall and The Mid in Chi-town as well as festival sets in Colorado and New York. Now headed back over seas, the young gun leaves us a remix before his departure, a tropical reworking of The Weeknd‘s hit single Often. The track is a summer quencher, pumping out vibes from start to finish…. and is available for free via Kygo’s Facebook Page.

Today the youthful spirit has teased some dates for his forthcoming Endless Summer Tour with Thomas Jack and Amtrac, which kicks off Sept 26 in Nashville, TN. Anticipate the full announcement this Wednesday, which will also include dates in Europe.

MartyParty & Starkey Drop Million$

The bass music legend Marty Folb is back at it again this time teaming up with Starkey to create Million$, Folb categorizes the track as a “modern EDM blues song”. This track runs on a massive bass line and with the added 808′s and massive distortion it is sure to get the dance floor all riled up. Starkey and Folb both took multiple stabs at this track each time tweaking and adding to the piece until each felt happy with the collaboration. With simple vocals and truly next level distortion in a few of the drops this free download from Marty Party and Starkey goes as hard as expected!

Thomas Jack Presents: Tropical House Vol. 5

2014 has been the year of tropical house, and we have Thomas Jack to thank for that.

The 20-year-old Australian DJ and producer seemingly came out of nowhere, but over the past several months his Tropical House mixtape series has taken the internet by storm, and for good reason. Simply put, Thomas Jack‘s mixtapes establish himself as one of the most talented young artists on the planet. His mixing is flawless, taking listeners on an uplifting journey through the many realms of house music, and all of it with his signature tropical twist, often meaning saxophones, pan flutes, and other tropical instruments that us city folk don’t usually hear too often.

Sometimes the music is dark and deep, while other times it’s cheery and catchy (and still deep, of course). The last two tropical house volumes featured guest mixes from Bakermat and Klingande, but Thomas Jack is finally back at it again for Volume 5. It just so happens that Volume 5 is also Thomas Jack’s deepest mix yet. The heavy bassline thumps at a steady pace throughout the 2+ hour mix, seamlessly transitioning from one house banger to another.

Unfortunately, Visa issues prevented Thomas Jack from doing his US tour earlier this year, but it looks like he’ll be making it out here very soon, with shows in San Francisco, Denver, and Palm Springs already announced.

In any case, Thomas Jack’s Tropical House Vol. 5, like the 4 volumes before it, is house music at its finest. Oh, and it’s all free to download via SoundCloud! Stay tropical, friends.
