4B & Chris Brown – Did YouChris Brown 4B

Chris Brown lends his talents to heavy-hitting producer 4B’s latest single “Did You.”   Released on Ultra Records, the 26-year-old 4B and Breezy deliver a heart-pounding RnB inspired cut that is a sharp departure from the bruising sounds of 4B’s previous anthems “Bang Bang” and “Atomic Bomb.” A subdued version of his more menacing production style, “Did You” showcases his dynamic talents and adaptability in the studio. The new sound is the perfect compliment to Brown’s pitch perfect vocals, letting the legendary singer take center stage while 4B’s contributions bubble and bump underneath at a slow-brewed BPM.

4B x PuroWuan – Atomic Bomb

4B x PuroWuan – Atomic Bomb4b Atomicbomb

4B and PuroWuan’s latest “Atomic Bomb” is probably the most appropriately named song ever. Just like the atomic bomb this one is so aggressive and over the top that it’s senseless. An absolutely obliterating wall of sound that leaves nothing in its wake. This is the second single off his upcoming ‘Explosive’ EP and if your a fan of 4B then you know just what to expect. From start to finish it’s an all out assault that draws on hardstyle and trap influences with jarring effect. Easy with the volume on this one, unless you want to treat your ear drums to an atomic bombing courtesy of these two bass maniacs.

4B – Told You

4B – Told YouToldyou

4B is back on Ultra Records with a heavy-hitting single that serves as a battle cry for his forthcoming “Explosive” EP. A blend of hardstyle and trap, “Told You” is not for the feint of heart or the mellow-minded. This track is a sonic assault. Led by a percussion-heavy build and a driving bassline that stabs and serrates your ear drums, the 26-year-old producer has primed his party-ready and hard-hitting style with “Told You.”

If the rest of his EP is as “Explosive” as the name suggests then “Told You” is the fuse for a megaton bomb of bass.

10 songs to listen for during Diplo’s Belly Up Aspen extravaganza

10 songs to listen for during Diplo’s Belly Up Aspen extravaganzaDiplo 2017

Belly Up Aspen is none of Colorado’s premier winter music festivals, showcasing a diverse range of genres and artists of every caliber. Their calendar was stacked high in 2018 with memorable performances by Keys N Krates, Nora En Pure, Lost Kings, and Cold War Kids taking the same stage as superstars like Marshmello, The Chainsmokers, deadmau5, and Stephen Marley.

To top off a historic year, Belly Up will bring the one and only Diplo to the stage on December 29. From side projects Silk City and LSD, to releasing his first solo EP in four years, Wesley Pentz has had immense success this year, which all the Aspen Mountain skiers can celebrate. Here’s a playlist of ten songs attendees should look out for during the set:

1.Silk City, Dua Lipa feat. Diplo & Mark Ronson – “Electricity”

One of Wesley Pentz Jr.’s greatest moves this year was teaming up with legendary producer Mark Ronson. Silk City instantly popped into the spotlight, bringing in one of 2018’s hottest artists in Dua Lipa for this one. The track was pushed further with an “electric” music video.

2. Ape Drums – “Me Solta”

Miami-based producer Ape Drums is no stranger to dancehall, a genre that Diplo has coined from his Jamaican influence in Major Lazer. Drums is also a friend of the Mad Decent imprint with several features on BBC Radio 1’s Diplo & Friends. Here’s his latest release “Me Solta,” earning a SoundCloud re-post from Diplo himself.

3. LSD feat. Sia, Diplo, Labrinth – “Thunderclouds” (MK Remix)

The famed trio LSD made a lot of noise this year, with four official releases and an innovative, unique sound. “Thunderclouds” marked Diplo, Sia, and Labrinth’s third work of art, receiving a groovy house edit from MK. The Miami-raised producer has a tendency to go deep in his sets, making this remix a prime candidate.

4. Wuki – DADADADA (Holiday VIP) [wukileak]

It’s always easy to throw Wuki in the mix. The New Jersey-born producer already performed a “wukipediamix” for Diplo and Friends and has been heard in a myriad of past Diplo/Skrillex sets (having released tracks on Mad Decent and OWSLA). His wild reworks brought him into the spotlight, most notably his edit of Busta Rhymes’ “Look At Me Now” verse. Although, this one comes with a holiday twist primed for a pre-NYE show.

5. Wuki – Pon De Time [wukileak]

Here’s another gem from Wuki’s endless list of goodies on his WUKILEAKS SoundCloud page. This one stems from one of Diplo’s earliest tracks “Pon De Floor.” Mashed with the fan favorite “One More Time” from Daft Punk, is there even a question of whether or not he’d throw this in?

6. Diplo feat. Lil Pump, Juicy J, Famous Dex, French Montana – “Welcome To The Party”

 

This track serves as a perfect bridge between and hip-hop, featuring rap goliaths like Famous Dex, and fresh-in-the-limelight rapper Lil Pump. This electrifying single is sure to show it not only connects genres, but also jump starts a vibe. “Welcome to the Party,” was featured in Deadpool 2, one of the highest grossing movies of 2018, and Diplo would start off his farewell to 2018 with his imprint on one of the most impactful soundtracks of the year.

7. Calvin Harris feat. Florence Welch – “Sweet Nothing” (Diplo & Grandtheft Remix)

If Diplo is anything, it’s that hard to pin down, transcending expectation and genre. He’s an enigma that’s always working on some new project, but staying true to his nature. He’s also not one to forget the past.  Another classic Diplo remix from 2012, the year Calvin Harris’ “Sweet Nothing” with Florence Welch took hold. Diplo got together with Canadian producer Grandtheft for this one. 

8. Ellie Goulding feat. Diplo & Swae Lee  “Close To Me”

“Close To Me” features some of the industries best and brightest. Swae Lee’s vocals are starting to become familiar to fans across all genres, while Ellie Goulding has been riding with the scene from the start. This track is Diplo’s latest release and has major traction across streaming services sitting pretty at number one on Diplo’s Spotify under popular, with 73 million streams. Definitely keep your ears keen for this one.

9. 4B & Teez – Whistle (Nitti Gritti Remix)

Diplo re-posted this track on his secret SoundCloud account page “diplo approved,” and he’s been known to thread approved tracks into his sets. Additionally, Nitti gritti recently opened for Dillon Francis’ Brooklyn Halloween show and hosts multiple genre and drop changes. Diplo fans will surely recognize and get down to this track.

10. “Get It Right” feat. MØ

“Get It Right” is hot and fresh off the California EP. Diplo played this joint as recently as September 14 at the Brooklyn Mirage for Mad Decent Block Party and even brought out MØ to perform live. It’s flush with style and contemporary waves. One can only hope that Diplo drops it again for this New Years weekend set.

Lil Skies – Red Roses (4B Remix)

Lil Skies – Red Roses (4B Remix)4B Lil Skies Remi

New Jersey Producer 4B turns Lil Skies’ Billboardcharting hip-hop single, “Red Roses,” on its head with a heavy trap remix. The EDM remake takes the original, rap-singing vocals and keeps the underlying melody while adding stronger percussion and air. With an anticipatory build of trap horns and fast-paced synths, the drop clocks in with a machine gun-sounding synth that turns around with a more metallic tinge. 4B has delivered a proper remix for the massively popular original with more than 100 million streams on Spotify.

4B is known for taking influences from New Jersey club and harder electronic sounds. The Mad Decent and DIM MAK-associated artist has had a busy summer, playing out EDC and gearing up for Lollapalooza. He also released a massive, 18-track remix pack from his single with Teez, “Whistle,” a single featuring Megan Lee, “Ice Cold,” and a Gammer remix with NvrLeft of “THE DROP.”

There’s no doubt that Gammer‘s “THE DROP” has taken festivals by storm since its release last November. With the track’s intense nature that cascades from each drop, along with the intricate production, he created yet another heater that’s not for the faint of heart.

With the success of the original, Gammer enlisted 4B x NvrLeftStonebankSkellismSlippy and Wooli for the first of two remix packs to take the track to the next level. Each artist carefully dissects the elements and then pieces them back together in completely new ways without losing any energy.

4B and NvrLeft channel some stuttering Jersey club, Skellism add cinematic elements and vocal chops, Slippy get experimental in the drops and adds some delicate arps, Stonebank creates drops with pumping synths and plentiful percussion, and Wooli puts a couple of edits that bring the original to a new level.

The remix package is out now via Monstercat.

Ultra-2018-mainstage-aLIVE-Coverage

Ultra celebrated a monumental twentieth anniversary this past weekend. Organizers wrapped UMF’s birthday with several landmark wins — its acquisition of Winter Music Conference, a Swedish House Mafia reunion, and a long-fought promise to return to their beloved venue at Miami’s Bayfront Park.

Along with the weekend came a bevy of top industry taste maskers spotlighting the upcoming year’s most popular dance floor anthems in their sets.  Over the weekend, 1001tracklists.com compiled a list of the Top Ten most-played tracks at Ultra Music Festival. From singles one might expected to see from names like DrakeSkrillex, and GTA, a deeper listen into the list reveals some tracks that will surely surprise and delight.

The sheer diversity in this year’s compiled list displays a wider range of genre crossing, however, which speaks to dance music’s diversification of tastes and sounds.

Here are the top ten tracks most played tracks at Ultra 2018.
