Normal Blood – Matt Black

Normal Blood – Matt Black

Aside from Matt Black being a producer on the Young Heavy Souls label, he is also the founder of the Detroit proud name, created in 2011. I previously featured two other artists from YHS, but when first introduced, Matt Black was the initial producer I discovered. In short he is described as “An MC, Producer, filmmaker and all-around creative type”. He sounds more than qualified to run this label, one infused with so many diverse styles. His music, just as gifted. “Normal Blood” in short, is dark. I’m so ecstatic...

Aero Chord – Boundless

Aero Chord – Boundless

Greece based producer Aero Chord has made waves this last year, winning 3 major remix contests and gaining major recognition for his track “Ctrl Alt Destruction.” The rise of Aero Chord has been no stroke of luck, and nothing proves that more than his newest Monstercat single, ‘Boundless’. The trap anthem takes hardstyle elements and mixes them into a hip hop rooted heavy hitting track. ‘Boundless’ is just another example of Aero Chord’s disregard for the status quo. Through his crisp production style and undeniable...

The Notorious B.I.G ft. Ja Rule- The Old Thing Back (Matoma Remix)

The Notorious B.I.G ft. Ja Rule- The Old Thing Back (Matoma Remix)

Remixing the powerhouse hip hop styles of both The Notorious B.I.G and Ja Rule, Matoma’s driving factor of creating music based from “soul and passion” comes to life. A bit of saxophone in the opening sets the tone, as the song expands to the recognizable voices we can’t deny as a guilty pleasure. The Norwegian producer’s mix of the groovy vibe reminds me of nothing but a jazz bar in New Orleans, instrumental based, only blended with a few slightly profound lyrics we’ve all attempted to master. He...

Nortroniks- Something On Wax

“Something On Wax” is one of ten featured tracks on Kyle Norton’s- better known as Nortroniks – recently released album The Northern Tropics. The song explores Norton’s hip-hop, energetic sound that has become his signature. The Michael Jackson-esque vocals accompany a ballroom dance style beat that pairs ageless musical fundamentals with electronic innovation of the modern day. The low tempo, melodic rhythm of the song complements the groove-hop image Norton is reaching for. Dig a little deeper on the Young...

#TrapTuesday Ozzie – Gangsta

It’s no secret that I love Moombahton, and I like trap because to me it has an cool fusion of Old School Hip Hop. Ozzie, a UK born Trap producer, had a buzz for a few years now and I’m glad he’s finally starting to get recognition. Ozzie recently released his Regime EP and announced a new Australian tour coming in 2015. The Bass in this track is by far the most dominant element and adding the melodic structure makes this a good all around track....

DJ Woogie’s Club Nights Series

I’ve known of DJ Woogie for many years now and and everywhere I go either if i’m on Facebook or just browsing Soundcloud I see he has some affiliation with what i’m looking at. He is the man that personally made me switch my love for Hip Hop to the EDM scene because of his club nights mix. Because of this alone I will give him the spotlight & a huge load of thanks for making me see that there is more out there than just Pete Rock or Just Blaze. Going back to I believe 2009, the Club Nights series started with a mix of...
