London-based Jacob Plant has released a pulsing production with “Shakedown” via Calvin Harris’ Fly Eye Records. Starting the track off with a surging buildup, Plant delivers a dubstep-certified output with plunging bass and electro style. The talented producer transitions from escalating progressions to stabbing synths before unloading crashing sub bass — satisfying dubsteppers and electro enthusiasts alike. A relentless yet infectious offering, “Shakedown” is powerful start to Plant’s year and, with future releases in the works, hopefully only a precursor of what’s to come from the rising producer.

Philadelphia duo, Louis Futon, have made a name for themselves with a collection of future house originals and impeccable remixes of Mos Def and Childish Gambino. On their latest official remix the pair strip down Logic’s “Break It Down,” and install a future funk groove underneath Jhene Aiko’s silky smooth verses. Tripped-up progressions and panning vocal cuts create a hazy and heady vibe perfect for the upcoming holiday… and we aren’t talking about Easter.
There are days when I wonder if some producers realize that it is in fact possible to release a song without sampling an R&B hit from a decade ago. That said, there are also days when someone surprises me with a track like “C.A.S.S.I.E.” Redlight’s edit takes Cassie’s “Me & U” and transforms it into a DJ tool that’s every bit as listenable as it is useful. (Redlight fans familiar with his Animal Youth moniker may find similarities between the drums used here and on “Keep Up,” the Animal Youth take on Destiny’s Child’s “Lose My Breath.”) The track is available as a free download through Redlight’s Facebook page.
