Trap Tuesday Volume Twenty-Seven
For Volume Twenty-Seven, I’ve chosen some heavier-hitting pieces that I have no doubt will get you in the groove and through the week as the first weekend of May approaches. Although I’m not including it in this week’s feature, I have to give a shout-out to my girl Christina for her recent writeup of Flume’s latest production and an absolute masterpiece, his remix of Lorde’s ‘Tennis Courts.’
My boy Kennedy Jones hooked up a sweet remix of Project Pat and Juicy J’s collab, “Still Hustlin.” Having met KJ myself last summer, I can say with complete honesty he has by far the most genuine personality of producers I’ve met in the industry. Not to mention, he’s been in the game for a minute, and knows exactly how to throw down his unique take on music with this remix.
Juicy J & Project Pat – Still Hustlin (Kennedy Jones Remix)
Ah, the days when Hip-Hop was still in the mainstream. Onderkoffer‘s interpretation of the fire production from Fat Joe & Terror Squad from back in the day still keeps the integrity of their original creation. DO THE ROCKAWAY.
Terror Squad – Lean Back (Onderkoffer Remix)
Drunken Masters remix this David Heartbreak original, with high pitched vocal samples praising Jah and those quick moving kick drums, the drop provides for a delectable change in sound, surprising the listener and proving Drunken Masters’ musical prowess as well-tuned remixers.
David Heartbreak – Acid Youths (Drunken Masters Bootleg Remix)
It seems increasingly less frequent that we get to see slower bass jams from the GTA boys, but this remix off the new Iggy Azalea EP is pretty blaze fiya and they came through.
Iggy Azalea – Fancy (GTA Remix)
These guys need no intro…Chill vibes ‘n stuff.
Keys n Krates – Cornell Haynes (Unreleased KNK 100 Remix)
Off Bro Safari & UFO!’s Animals EP, I found the most heart in this remix of Zombies. I hope you find the same soulful and funky vibes to your liking.

I’ll leave it up to you to decide if you like the updated version or not. Let me know in the comments below.

Think Flosstradamus had the best Trap set at Ultra? Well, you’d be wrong. Bro Safari’s 2014 Ultra Worldwide Stage live set confirms two things: not everyone will follow the mainstream trends, and this producer still runs the Trap game (just the music part, I think though.) His hour-long set is scattered with perfectly crafted bass music: hard-hitting trap, to electro-infused dubstep, to a few brief appearances of various sub-genres of house, to the albeit quickly vanishing Moombahton (did I mention, however, that he dropped the first Moomba track I’d ever heard? Listen for some sassy sampling of Spanish lyrics.) Naturally, he closed with one of the few remixes of Biggie that does justice to the King of NY while also tearing the roof off with a bass drop still to this day.
