DJ Snake has released an absolutely stacked hip-hop posse cut, “Enzo,” featuring Offset from Migos, 21 Savage, Sheck Wes, and Gucci Mane. The French beatsmith continues his international production streak, closely following his a loaded Latin lineup of Cardi B, Ozuna, and Selena Gomez on the chart-topping “Taki Taki,” with a star-studded cast of rap’s current wavemakers.

“Enzo,” is fueled by Wes’ hyped vocals on the hook contrasted with lazy, swinging synths and heavy percussion action. Every one of the track’s verses carries heavy automotive themes, driven by each individual rapper’s signature flow.

Snake recently told Zane Lowe on Beats 1 the track started two years ago, before “Mo Bamba” blew up. He revealed a music video is coming soon that promises to be every bit as dripped out as the single. Snake also revealed that he has an album coming out this summer, though he managed to keep pretty tight-lipped with the details. Fire up “Enzo” below.

iLoveMakonnen – “Spendin” (Feat. Gucci Mane)

iLoveMakonnen-SpendinThere’s something reassuring about hearing iLoveMakonnen come out with a normal rap song. Makonnen has been a stylistic chameleon and a big influence on a new generation of Auto-Tuned sing-rappers, but he’s rarely settled into a role or a sound for long. He’s gone from trap to EDM to SoundCloud-rap to weird pop-punk hybrids. But … More »

Sevenn bridge bass and tech house in new single, ‘Lollipop’

Sevenn continue to define their sound, and simultaneously push the modern electronic envelope in “Lollipop.”

A club-ready bass jaunt sure to bang on any half-decent set of speakers, the latest single to bear the Sevenn-stamp entices listeners with its tech-house-leaning rhythmic construction in the song’s opening seconds. Dark, low-pitched bass tones prove to be a characteristic of Sevenn’s continually expanding catalog, as further seen through the “Lollipop” lens. Sevenn lay down a similarly deep bass line on prior smash collaboration with Tiësto and Gucci Mane, “BOOM.” Now, the dance duo ground “Lollipop” much in the same vigorous vein.

Sevenn position a galvanizing vocal loop of the tune’s title, “Lollipop.” Just before the track builds, the production’s tech house influence is most audible, with clattering percussion and complex rhythmic arrangement. “Lollipop’s” moments of ascent eventually give way to potent pops of bass, which comprise the single’s drops, while adding a party-geared personality to the song. “Lollipop” is out now on Armada Music.

2018 has been a year of forward-thinking hard work from Don Diablo. Since the release of his sophomore album, Future, there’s been a lot to acknowledge regarding the Dutch producer, including remixes for Martin Garrix, Kygo, Diplo, and more, alongside various original works. Now, he’s decided to pay homage to the late Nate Dogg with his latest single “I Got Love.”

Dogg — who died tragically at the age of 41 — is considered one of the pioneers of West Coast hip-hop, coming up with rap legends such as cousin Snoop Dogg, Tupac, Dr. Dre, and 50 Cent. It may seem that Diablo is taking things in a unique direction here, but his previous single, “Survive” featured contemporary rapper Gucci Mane — proving his innovative moves to break into hip-hop’s rising popularity.

The track samples Dogg’s vocals from his 2001 release of the same name, which are layered over upbeat piano chords and subtle drum hits to create blissful future house vibes.
