YehMe2 and Wuki join forces in gritty breaks number, ‘Throw It’Throw It Wuki Yehme2

Bass titans YehMe2 and Wuki have paired up for an 808-fueled breaks number packed with energy. Added MC-esque vocal clips offer an added vintage twist to the finished product; though ultimately its crisp arrangement and modernized synth tones adapt it perfectly to the current age. At just over two-and-a-half minutes, the collaboration is a short, but sweet display of the two producer’s chemistry in the studio and willingness to go beyond their creative status quo. After months of successful roadtesting behind it, “Throw It” is primed for continued success on the club circuit.

Before pairing for “Throw It,” YehMe2 and Wuki have been spending their days packing their schedules with heavy touring and studio time. They were both recruited by Party Favor to remix Layers in late August, and both have been undertaking extensive runs across the country. YehMe2 and A-trak also paired for a brand new tune that they’ve been teasing through the summer

Flaunting an organic, instrumentally eclectic makeup, PLS&TY‘s two-track EP, Run Wild/Feeling Forever, tapped into a fluidly developing sonic freshness that swiftly set the production apart from fellow releases in the electronic circle. With ebbing vocals of a hypnotic caliber and metallic textures to offset the silk of these looping vocals, “Run Wild” touts elements that lend the track well to re-imaginative endeavors. Luca Lush, former Flosstradamus constituent, YehMe2, Manic Focus, and Ducky accordingly submit their remixes of the PLS&TY original on Run Wild/Feeling Forever (The Remixes).

Luca Lush amplifies the record’s potency via his addition of striking pops of bass and an accelerated beat arrangement. Likewise never one to shy from the integration of bass, YehMe2 offers a gritty, low-end heavy take on the lucid track. Manic Focus’s rendition surfaces as a comparatively more muted reprieve from the intensity that Luca Lush and YehMe2 bring to speakers, while Ducky ups the ante with another high octane flip.

PLS&TY’s “Feeling Forever” is also the recipient of two revamps, courtesy of Vindata and Bondax. Vindata’s is a glitchy, beat oriented rework that preserves much of PLS&TY’s original. Bondax’s is an ambient showing that newly engages piano chords, to add another instrumental layer to PLS&TY’s already mellifluous effort.

First Listen: YehMe2 kicks off HARD Summer mixtape series with heavy handed hour-long mixYehme2dancingastronaut

HARD Summer is nearly upon us, and as the staple Southern California dance event ramps up for one of it’s biggest billings yet, the festival is rolling out its annual mixtape series with veteran beatsmith YehMe2.

The former Flosstradamus proponent split from his longtime producer partner Curt Cameruci in late 2016 to launch his new alias in early 2017. Since then, he’s built a massive catalog of heavy handed heaters and remixes, from his Steal This Mixtape series to collaborative cuts with A-Trak, WHIPPED CREAM, and more. Now, YehMe2 is primed to return to HARD Summer, a festival he’s dominated countless times over the years, and he’s locked in to deliver one of the most exciting—and hyped— performances of the weekend.

Ahead of YehMe2’s HARD Summer performance, vibe out with a new hour-long mix from the Chicago-native DJ below.

Former half of Flosstradamus Josh Young is now known as YehMe2, and despite leaving the legendary trap group, that has not stopped him from continuing to release the hard-hitting trap tracks that fans came to love and expect. Young is back with a new release under the moniker in collaboration with Bailo, and per the Soundcloud description, the duo made the track “in 15 minutes.” Bailo is also a trap mainstay, frequently releasing tracks on the likes of Buygore and Dim Mak.

Sirens open the track, and synthesized rap vocals permeate the backdrop as the release propels forward. Manufactured for live performance with its hip-hop trap blend, it’s the perfect release to mix into a set or to get a Saturday night going.

Brownies & Lemonade has spent years making a name for itself on the Los Angeles party circuit. Now known for putting on shows with impeccably on-trend bass, trap and future artists, open aux cord nights, secret venues, even more secret lineups, B&L has become a stalwart in the LA electronic scene through grassroots measures.

But the spontaneous and secretive nature of the events they put on is now shifting. After weeks of teasing new party locations on Twitter, the group announced its first-ever Brownies & Lemonade tour. Featuring the party’s frequently featured artists like Alexander Lewis, CRAY, KRANE, Luca Lush and Vincent, the tour will kick off on September 29 in San Diego. With nine total dates culminating in a show on December 8 in Houston, Brownies & Lemonade will tour the western half of North America. More information is available on the B&L website, where tickets are on sale now.

Kendrick Lamar – X (Rickyxsan x YehMe2 Remix)

Kendrick Lamar – X (Rickyxsan x YehMe2 Remix)Kendricklamar Hero

Rickyxsan and YehMe2 of Flosstradamus fame release a flaming trap remix of Kendrick Lamar’s “X,” featuring 2 Chainz and Saudi. The original, which was also produced by Lamar, was featured on the Black Panther album.

This new version of “X” hardly uses Lamar’s vocals, becoming a record completely Rickyxsan and Yehme2’s own. They pitch up the tempo to add energy, inserting some bounce into the mix as well with titillating synthesizer. Then, pitched-up vocals fall into gritty bass, squeaking syntns, and mammoth 808s that sends shivers down the spine. It’s safe to say they’ve adapted Kendrick Lamar’s piece into a veritable festival hit, geared toward causing a frenzy among its listeners.

Ricky and Josh Young have been friends for a while but have never collaborated. Once Young started working on the remix, his mind went to Rickyxsan  to help create this body melting trap vibe.
