The first thing that must be addressed is the fact that today is our good friend Bro Safari‘s birthday! So head over to one of Nick’s various social media pages and give him some love. Also, if you missed his recently released “Danger” collab with Sazon Booya, then you must listen! DJ SAV announced that he will be releasing his solo EP in the near future and he is currently posting teaser webisodes on his Youtube account. Besides for those, another thing that may be of interest to some of you are the giveaways that Play Me Records will be doing on 4/20. Make sure to be aware of the many contests that they will be doing because they will be giving away some insane items! Now, let’s move on and get into the sonic section!
Shorne: Long live Daft Punk! “Random Access Memories” releases with Columbia Records on May 21st and is the first music we have heard from them since they created the music for the Disney film “Tron”. This sneak into the new album from The Creators Project gives us a chilling look into Daft Punk’s collaboration with Giorgio Moroder and foreshadows some pretty amazing collaborations on the rest of the album. This is the future of dance music.

Dirt Monkey and Point.Blank recently took over the charts with their filthy genre defying “BOH” EP; courtesy of the notoriously grimy Play Me Records. Ranging from some booty bouncin’ trap to some straight medieval glitch hop, the release traverses a wide variety of sounds but definitely stays damn gnarly the whole way through.
Point.Blank’s melodies are just too damn groovy to not head bob as soon as “Medieval” drops into some dark age glitch! I had never noticed the similarity between Dirt Monkey and Point.Blank’s production style till now, but they are quite complimenting. Teaming up on the similarly titled track “Boh”, they create a 140 bpm dubstep tune that will tear an intergalactic hole in any set of speakers. And now you can get in on this action too!
Dirt Monkey and Point.Blank have decided to do a little remix competition for this monster! Announced February 1st, the “Winner will be picked based on who makes the best remix, not who can get the most votes”! Grand Prize is a release on Play Me!! Read more details on the contest Facebook page.

Play Me and Play Me Too has consistently been one of my favorite dance music labels since the time I started to even care about that kind of thing. And with another Moombahton release from Dirt Monkey and with the aid of Anna Yvette’s wonderful voice, they keep that streak going with this Beatport Top 10 charter, Hurt So Good.
Patrick (Dirt Monkey) continues to go above and beyond with his production quality, and it is setting him leaps and bounds in front of other up and coming artists. Anna Yvette has the perfect voice to go over this heavier style, and Dirt Monkey does a fantastic job using her sexy voice in all the right places. Pick this up over at Beatport and support our friends!

Somehow I forgot to mention the super dope trap remix of Hurt So Good from Ishe but don’t let that turn you away from it. In a world filled with everyone making the same trap song, it’s awesome to find something unique like this. Sub recommended.

Hot off being announced as the winner of the Westword Music Showcase’s, Denver’s Best Dubstep DJ, Dirt Monkey teams up with Ishe for this full length 12 song album release on the omnipotent Play Me Records. Filled with a diverse range of genres and collaboration, both individually kill it, especially on their solo produced tracks Hit Em and Fractal Vortex. The whole thing isn’t up for free download, but to show how much they love us all you can snag the VIP remix of Little Soundbwoy below!
But these 5 tracks are only a small reflection of the whole album, so I highly recommend picking up the whole thing over at Beatport! You’re gonna wanna know these tracks when Dirt Monkey throws down at the Global Bass Stage this weekend! Party on.

With Play Me recently announcing the winners of its FS & Calvertron remix contest, also comes the barrage of free downloads from all the producers who weren’t chosen as winners. So after listening to an overwhelming amount of terrible moombahton, I found an absolutely killer remix from the ones who go by Wobble Boy and Disco Bangerz. They go way harder than their names so turn up this filth and enjoy!
