What So Not - Divide & Conquer (Noisia Remix)

The remix pack that this track is a part of showed up in my inbox earlier last week courtesy of Sweat It Out, and I am super pumped to include it on the blog.  Having gone through the remix pack in its entirety, and given the heavy tracks I've been posting this week, the Noisia remix of What So Not's Divide & Conquer fit in perfectly.

This remix is so heavy I should be including a disclaimer in the post. In fact, there's your disclaimer right there.  Noisia goes in hard on this remix, and have come out with an intense genre-bending piece of work that I'm honestly stumped as to how to classify it.  It has drum and bass elements, drumstep elements, trap elements, and some stuff beyond all of these. The buildups are put together in a way that brings the pressure straight to your chest before dropkicking you in the same region with the huge distorted basslines that take the focus as soon as you hear them.

I don't even know what more to say on this one, other than you need to listen to it now, and put it on repeat if you like anything heavy in your musical diet at all.  Hit this link to grab this remix and the rest of the package on the major music retailers/streaming platforms.


Dom Dolla & Go Freek - Define (Cassian Remix) [Sweat It Out! Music]

Dom Dolla & Go Freek brought out this massive tune earlier this week, with EDM.com premiering the original mix.  A couple days later, Cassian threw his remix up on his Soundcloud page. The original is a really nice blending of Dom Dolla and Go Freek's somewhat similar bass-house styles with a melodic kick and great lyrics. Cassian's remix takes things a little deeper, utilizing the vocals throughout, and applying a healthy dose of reverb. The first drop at the 1:50 mark gives a little taste of where he's going with this and starts to set the tone, with further percussion coming in with the vocals a bit later.  The breakdown and buildup later on culminates in an awesome hit of energy, bass, and vocals at 3:56. This is a huge tune that's going to be getting heavy rotation over the rest of the summer and well into the fall.

If you haven't heard the original from Dom Dolla and Go Freek, make sure to check it out here. The full EP will be coming out soon on Sweat It Out! Music.

Update: Club Mix and Remixes available here on Beatport, or you can get the single here on iTunes.

Motez - Tryna Shake It [Sweat It Out]

Motez has been working on his forthcoming Vancouver EP that will be out May 19th on Sweat It Out, and has uploaded one of the tracks from the EP to his Soundcloud page - Tryna Shake It. It's been up for under a week, and has already had more that 90,000 plays.

A rather mellow intro eases up into things until the drop comes in with a hard and heavy non-compromising bassline. Motez then brings the bassline down slightly to allow the keys and synths to come back into play, mellowing things back out again with some vocal cuts slipped in here and there. This is one of the more interesting takes on the bass house/deep house genre I've heard in a while.  Motez is clearly exercising his ability to produce both a slow burning deep house track and a hard hitting bass track all within one, and it works so well.

Watch Sweat It Out Music and their Facebook page for this one dropping on May 29th. You can also check out some of Motez's previous work on his Soundcloud.
