TCHAMI - ADEIU - CHASE REMIX
TCHAMI’s had his bonafide banger 'Adieu' remixed by an 18-year-old producer going by the name of Chase. It’s just dropped on Tchami’s label Confession and kicks off with a smooth atmospheric 4/4 intro, which makes way for the classic Risse Chain Of Fools acapella, rising all the way up to the first euphoric breakdown.
If I was asked to sum up the the first drop in one word, it'd be “SICK”. Chase has gone with a deep house head nodder for this one. The second drop is basically a reworked version of the original. I’ll definitely be giving this one a few spins.

CASPA - WHERES MY MONEY - LEE MVTTHEWS REMIX
You hear these guys 8pm every Thursday on George Nights, consistently pushing the boundaries in bass heavy audio porn.
The same goes for when these guys get in the studio together. Any lover of classic dubstep knows the name Caspa. The boys boost his bass heavy original “Wheres My Money,” straight into 2017 with this naughty re-work. Even better, it’s a free download.
They keep it interesting and fresh from the get go while still paying homage to the original. Any lover of heavy trap will be all over this one. The lads have a huge release schedule ahead of them this year and if this is a taste of things to come we should all stock up on wet wipes.

PORTUGAL. THE MAN - FEEL IT STILL - LIDO REMIX
Heads went into a bit of a spin last year when Alaskan band Portugal, The Man’s vocalist teamed up with German duo Drunken Masters for a future bass single LOUDER - which featured heavily on George Nights for a minute.
It looks like the 5 piece fuck with the future bass big time because they’ve enlisted the super talented Norwegian producer LIDO to re-work their single 'Feel It Still'.
The old adage “less is more” comes into play heavily on this jam and for an electronic jam, it flows along like more of a song than a track. The vocal is silky smooth and the production from Lido is a perfect example of why he’s killing it right now.

WOLVEZ - ESSENCE
I found myself down the Soundcloud rabbit hole over the weekend. The hands free game of musical roulette that often results in some amazing musical discovery. Enter WOLVEZ.
I’ve got zero information on this producer, other than the track went up on Soundcloud 6 days ago with a #Triphop tag and a simple line that said “Ive been sitting on this one for a while now. Just felt right to put it out today - W”
Cheers Wolvez…I’m glad you did. This was the perfect tune to stumble across on a dreary Sunday afternoon.

QUIX - FOUR LETTER LIE
You know those proud kiwi moments like the AB’s taking out the RWC or The Warriors managing to string together more than 3 plays in a set? Well, now you can add NZ Bass maestro QUIX’ new E.P. dropping this Friday on Steve Aoki’s DIM MAK label to the list of reasons to celebrate being from a place who’s national animal is a flightless bird.
Quix spread his wings three months ago and took off to the U.S. to begin a quest to unleash his sound at some of the biggest festivals and clubs in the states. He’s back home with a 6 track EP stacked with slammers, and playing it smart he’s included this epic radio track called Four Letter Lie.
Catchy vocal melodies merge into a chorus that will have every girl in the dance singing at full noise, which builds up and drops into trademark Quix percussion and bass work. For now you’ll just have to make do with this sneaky snippet from his Facebook.

NASH - LIFESTYLE
Nash The Villain follows up his recent Ammonation offerings with a smooth jam that drips of R.n.B. I’ve had his track 'New Year Old Me' on high rotate, so was stoked to see the man had slid into my DM’s with this new riddim.
Once again proving his diversity and talent, owning the credits for production mixing and mastering, Nash teams up with Philippino rapper RONVLUS and NZ’s own Lunar for vocal assistance and Yoko Zuna’s JY Lee on wind instruments.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The quality of music coming from the NZ Rap Hip Hop and RNB vocalist and production scene right now is easily the highest calibre its ever been.
