Taste Test 03

April has been one crazy month, but it hasn’t fallen short on music releases by any means. We’ve had two great future bass compilations drop, Hebinomichi Vol. 2 and Filet Mignon III. Not to mention that Curren$y, Shlohmo, Brodinski, Scuba and Tyler the Creator have all also dropped flame albums. So this week I decided to share my favorite picks from the release avalanche and some other tunes for you to enjoy. First up is the Hebinomichi comp. As usual, collective founder SteLouse kills it with “Sunday Chords”, but my standout tracks have to be from the mysterious NRMN and then Chicago’s KR$CHN. “Secret Slide” is a funky mid-tempo collage of Michael Jackson samples and slappy bass, with plenty of bleeps and bloops thrown in. “Trunk Volume” is an out of this world banger, so get ready for the trunk rattling to commence.

The comp starts off with the young DMV producer’s ambient piano tinkering, but quickly kicks things up with a great 50 Cent sample. Then you have the always-quirky frenchman with his techy take on breaks and club. It may sound unsettling at first, but believe me, it bangs.

The new Tyler album is a step forward for the Odd Future artist, as he pulled back his extravagant melodrama to make a rowdy, but musically and intellectually rich album. Its entitled Cherry Bomb and worth a cover-to-cover listen, but I wanted to highlight a standout artist featured on the track. “Perfect” is the second half of the nearly 7 minute “Fucking Young.” It slows things down with a R&B drenched future groove, but what makes the song is Kali Uchis. The Colombian singer from Virginia has a warm, retro tone to her crooning voice that adds a whole other layer to Tyler’s lyrics. Check out what her vocals can do to a track in Esta’s Remix of “Know What I Want.” [soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/184716542″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /] Last up we have Manila Killa’s take on the newest M Machine EP. His remix of “Don’t Speak” goes from tropical house into what I would imagine one of Oliver’s nightmares would sound like. The remix pack is out today, it’s filled with great artists like Kazimer & CRNKN.
