While Carnage, Diplo and RL Grime will ensure that festival trap gets its fair share of play time across the Chattahoochee Hills grounds, on TomorrowWorld’s opening day fans can run the trap to from noon to night with the aptly named It’s A Trap stage. With 13 hi-hat rolling, hip-hop sampling, ass shake-inducing acts prepared to hit the Dirty South sweet spot, we’ve rounded up a few you simply can’t miss.
Amtrac never fails to impress with his versatile brand of feel good music. Whether deep, pop, or nu-disco tinged his productions have a way of crawling under the listener’s skin and leaving unforgettable memories in their wake. His remix of “Saturn” has us yearning for a day of bouncy castles and sun, a place where inhibitions go to die and smiles are abundant. The native Kentuckian is on the come up and on his way to beating out Colonel Sanders and his juicy fried goodness as our favorite state product.Posted by
Kill the Noise unleashed Black Magic, his followup to Kill Kill Kill, in November of last year. Featuring such tracks as “Thumbs Up (For Rock N’ Roll)” alongside Feed Me and his own “Mosh It Up” and “Black Magic,” the OWSLA EP received a great deal of attention from both fans and DJs of the wilder perversions of dance music. Nearly a year later, a remix EP has surfaced with reworks from GTA, Henry Fong, Kill Paris, Brillz and more. With a total of nine official remixes (and plenty more NEST exclusives), Black Magic Remixes EP is brimming with festival-ready trap, electro, and house.
Earlier this month the one and only Diplo invited ETC!ETC! and Brillz to the decks of LA 98.7′s Diplo & Friends Radio Show. The Mad Decent label head promised an hour of “twonk” and invited listeners to hear for themselves just what that sounded like. A blend of trap, hip-hop, and incredibly dirty dub, the hour mix has more hi-hats and snare rolls than a year’s worth of high school band performances with a heavy dose of locker room language to balance it out. Dropping everything from Ookay to Baauer, Martin Garrix to Calvin Harris, the mix may be a little heady for 10 a.m., but it’s Saturday so grab your free download and get shaking. Full tracklist below the break.
You don’t need RapGenius annotations for this one, folks. Exhuming an Obama-approved Young Hov’ relic, Brillz appropriately brushes the the dust off and breathes new life into Timbaland’s tour de force with new age twonk. Fresh off his latest LP, Brillz teams up with the legendary Z Trip for the prized rework. Quick facts on Z Trip: DJ Hero avatar, only producer to have an approved Nirvana remix (“Lounge Act”), has performed in front of 450,000 people, and voted America’s Best DJ by DJ Times (2009). Non-ironically, their “Dirt Off Your Shoulder” remix is premiering with Jay-Z’s own blog, Life + Times, as part of Imanos’s Trap Nation mixtape. Download the mix after the break.
After a wildly successful remix contest and remix EP for Zedd’s ”Spectrum,” it seemed only natural that Clarity‘s eponymous single should receive the same treatment. While the remixes started back in November with Aylen’s lovestep rework, it was only last week that Zedd unveiled the sumptuous roster of producers for the official “Clarity” remix package.
With renditions from Tiësto, Style of Eye, Brillz, and an orchestral edit from Zedd himself, the “Clarity” remix package is just as daunting as its counterpart’s previous package. Curious to see whose stole the spotlight? Click past the break to read our review.
Zedd unveils official Brillz and Torro Torro remixes of ‘Clarity’ alongside Tiësto, Felix Cartal, and Funkagenda renditions
After Zedd released the “Clarity” acapella as a free download, it was only a matter of time before the flood gates opened on the full stream of remixes. While yesterday Zedd revealed Tiësto’s official “Clarity” remix, today he’s shown the spotlight on two comparatively diverse remixes. The first is an enveloping trap remix by LA’s Brillz, for which Zedd enthusiastically praised on Twitter as “One of my favorite remixes anyone’s ever done for me!” The second is a thumping electro house remix from Canada’s Torro Torro, which Zedd has been playing out in his sets.
Though overshadowed by yesterday’s hype around Tiësto’s rendition, Felix Cartal also previewed his progressive house rework of “Clarity,” and it’s shaping up to be quite a release. Rounding out the official remix series will be a final, yet-to-be-previewed edition from Funkagenda. All five remixes are due out on February 12th, as part of the official “Clarity” remix package on Interscope Records. Click past the break to hear Brillz’s, Torro Torro’s, and Felix Cartal’s forthcoming remixes.
