PL swag. As if the hype hasn’t reached epic proportions already, Pretty Lights has done it again, giving us a teaser of what the sessions that created A Color Map of the Sun sound like. I mean, sampling aside, this live studio session has all the feel of your favorite PL banger, only missing vocals and some gritty bass lines and vocals. This project has been a massive undertaking, involving incredible amounts of studio time just to gather all the samples needed to make that special Pretty Lights sound. It’s really cool that he decided to give us this sneak peek of how it all went down. Unfortunately, this and “Around the Block” will have to hold you over until the full release of A Color Map of the Sun (July 2nd). For now, enjoy this preview of what is sure to be one of this year’s best albums.

The filth just doesn’t stop when Bare‘s at the controls, and honestly, it’s better this way. With the heat of his trap explorations demonstrating that the filth never left his fingertips, he has a heavy banger that has the percussive volume to close down any venue. The bridge and builds are cosmically tuned and equate to an alien civilization establishing a home world, but from this vantage point, everything you see is just a resultant variable of Bare’s natural talent. He kills it, and remixing the great original “Night Owl” from AC Slater x Nick Thayer is just an excuse to go extra filthy. It shows.

Yeah, you read that title right. We straight ganked this from our homies over at RealTrap.com, but since they didn’t write it up, we thought we would. This kind of heat that Willy Joy layered excessively throughout this track is hard to ignore, and so to be honest, we really couldn’t help ourselves. It had to join our collection, too. When you represent your zip code with the angst and hype that our boy Willy does, it demonstrates the creativity and brilliance of an evolving complex of sounds and energies. It’s deafening, but I bet if you turned down the volume a little bit (NOT RECOMMENDED), you wouldn’t lose your hearing. The opening phrase is gripping, and with that horn, Willy just takes you to the clouds and drops you…and by the way, you can’t fly. Let that sink in for a minute, and go grab your FREE DL now!

We’ve been here before. I told you about this awesome progressive production team, and you stood there, staring blankly at my words. Yeah, sound familiar? I’ll only say this a thousand times more. Vicetone is big. Their productions are continuously predestined for the main stage at all major festivals. Listen to this or their countless others that we’ve featured, and you’ll understand from where all my frustration with you begins. Too good to ignore, they’re back with a remix of Matthew Koma’s “One Night.” Uplifting, breathtaking, and complex, this is one of the few new tracks that successfully takes me away from Random Access Memories on loop. It’s that good.
