Coastal has been growing his name in the 2016 music climate, and with that, the talented artist is ready to close out the year with a bang and dive into the next year. The producer and artist has given us a playlist of his favorite tracks, which explore everyone from Daedelus, JATO, Zuma., and more!

Listen to the playlist below.

We’re excited to be premiering this new remix of Leo Islo’s “Blame” by Jamie Prado. The mellow dance piece is perfect for this Monday afternoon, and we can’t stop playing it as we get through the day. According to the press release, the remix was “inspired by his frequent trips to Colombia,” where “he took inspiration … to produce this beautiful remix that features delicate guitar riffs, hypnotic piano chords, and soft drum arrangements.

“The Golden Grave EP” is out now, and can be found here, the remix EP pre-order can be found here.

Tate Tucker has been gaining some serious clout in the LA underground, and today we’re excited to premiere “HCIBM,” which chronicles the profundity of falling in love. The resulting work is stunning and emotionally charged to the max. The track might be Tucker’s best, and if he is closing out the year with this, then he’s definitely got some serious work cut out to top it in 2017.

About “HCIBM”, he notes to us in an email- “After a year of putting this project together, it’s incredible to finally get this first song out. I’ve been going through a lot with my family this year, and this has been one of those tracks that’s kept our glasses half full. 2016 has been full of a lot of hate, I’m tryna break down the mystique of love and the need to always dilute it. This track is love, distilled to its purest form and served over intricate 808s and smooth chords. Enjoy the first chapter of the All In EP.”

Listen to the track below.

Common Souls (comprised of guitarist/vocalist Ryan Yoo & keyboardist/drummer Nick Velez) dub their music “ESM”: Electronic Sad Music, and considering everything that’s happening around us in the US, this song seems a little bit appropriate.

“Roots//Habit” is emotional and stunning, and this work is indicative of their long career ahead. Citing James Blake, Kanye, Frank Ocean, and “weirder” artists including Gabriel Garón-Montano as major influences, Common Souls is ecstatic to release their debut EP, “Pyramid Lake”.

Dragonette has been gearing up for their album lately, and the tracks we’ve heard so far have been a beautiful blend of pop and electronic, making it the perfect piece to listen to as we get into the colder season.

This one is a bit of a strange one, but get past it’s initial weirdness and it’s a hidden gem that’s remarkable and refreshing for the Hip Hop landscape. It’s the latest from from Deep 6 Division with an added feature from Charlotte, NC heavyweight Elevator Jay, is a master gem that mixes high level intensity with electronic edge to craft together a track that is equally strong in its lyricism as it is in production value.

While the track can have a repetitive flow at times, it’s got a touch of Danny Brown’s early Fool’s Gold swagger embedded into the piece, and the resulting work indicates that they might have what it takes to continue in the rap game.

On the track itself, this is what Rapper Shane had to say-

“Jay is one of my best friends and favorite rappers. One evening, Jay and I were hanging out drinking beers listening to some of the beats Mike had been making for this Deep 6 project and when the beat for “Ain’t got it” came on, Jay knew it was the one for him. Jay is a Charlotte native who raps with a classic southern, country rap tunes approach so to have him on the Deep 6 project is bit out of his norm… which made for a really rad song. We all out here trying to get paper yet we realize money don’t mean shit in life.. but at the same time its everything when you don’t have any. Mr. West said it best ” having moneys not everything, not having it is”. We just expanded on the topic, when shit gets tough you wanna get bread by any means, day dreaming what life would be like if you robbed a bank etc.. we ain’t them dudes to rob a bank but when you flat broke, dumb shit like that has crossed most peoples minds, but more in a fantasy way. We hollered at our bud Shamus Coneys to cook up a visual for us.. we acquired an ATM, lit that bitch on fire and just rapped outside an abandoned warehouse. The song is pretty to the point so we felt the visual should be as well!

Check out the video below.

It’s been a turbulent couple of weeks, but SRNO and Naaz’s “Stay Sane” is helping us, well, stay sane. The enchanting style and sound of the track is a beautiful blend of electronic and R&B sounds that come together to create something truly fantastic.

Listen to the track below. The track is out via Majestic Casual, and can be purchased here.

DJ Shiftee has been one of my favorite underground producers, especially when it comes to music made for partying, and I’m especially excited to let everyone know about this stunning track that’s premiering with us today. “Go Preemee” is the latest, and sees the talented producer team up with Brooklyn-based Svpreme Ink, a lyricist who’s complex style shines through in this piece.

With an emotional element to an otherwise beyond catchy song, the two create some truly great magic, and the resulting piece is one for the books.

According to DJ Shiftee-

“I was hanging with Dre (Svpreme Ink’s manager) at a studio session in Atlanta, and he was like, “you need to hear Svpreme.” He played me one of her tracks, and I was immediately sold, “YO! We need to work together.” Turns out Svpreme & I both live in Brooklyn, on the same subway line even, and we clicked musically right away. We had one writing session, where we knocked out 3 songs in a few hours, and then got up the next week at Red Bull NYC to record 2 of them. The first of these is Go Preemee, which is meant to be sort of an anthem for Svpreme (aka PREEMEE), but really for anyone to channel his or her confidence, talent, & swagger.”

… And according to Svpreme Ink- “I was complaining to my manager Dre about how I needed to get inspired with music again. He told me he just linked up with this guy Shiftee at a session in ATL. He told me Shiftee loved the music and his sound would inspire me to try something new so we linked! The vibe was so solid and natural. The energy clicked and the work just happened. The first day, me and DJ Shiftee knocked out 3 or 4 songs, but when we started recording “Go Preemee” we knew it was the one. It’s different than the music I usually make but its a song that gets people moving. It’s happy, it’s a party, I love that and creating it was fun too. It was the inspo I was looking for. Wouldn’t be surprised if you see more work from me and Shiftee in the near future!”

For those of you that don’t know, DJ Shiftee is an esteemed turntablist, producer, and head honcho at Hot Mom USA. Svpreme Ink, originally from Brooklyn, is a Rapper, Writer, Tattooist and Model.

The track will be released on the 28th of this month (it’s this Friday!). Check out the song below.
