While hip-hop instrumental productions are often short and sound simple to your ears, be careful not to underestimate the effect they can have on your mood; it is often paramount. Embedded in the simplicity of productions like Soulless’s ‘Just Chillin” is a reminder that music doesn’t always have to contain layers of mind-boggling musical complexities to be worth-while. Hailing from the Russian capital of Moscow, Soulless wields a sophisticated blade of musical knowledge that slice through the smallest traces of psychological unrest with uplifting floods of abstract, hip-hop styled productions. Ideal for almost every situation, Soulless productions ooze with a succulent arrangement of flavorful samples, pacifying beats, and hypnotic instrumentation – far from the mundane. ‘Just Chillin” is merely a small glance into the scope of the beatmaker’s talents and should not be omitted from any musical library. Download the release for free for continuous listening pleasure.

Lo and behold the latest installment to UK visionary LAXX’s fire starting catalog: ‘Step Two’. Out now via Never Say Die Records, ‘Step Two’ showcases LAXX’s impressive grasp of how to craft anthemic and ground-trembling electronic productions, which resonate with a flavor able to be consumed and savored across the wide spectrum of electronic music listeners. The four track compilation aptly rivals sounds filtering into and circulating within the realm of trap, though LAXX denominates his productions with a categorization of his own: “Twitch”. Categorize it as you wish, but LAXX tactfully delivers a complex and polished blend of heavy-hitting tracks that are crafted with an equal capacity to wreak havoc on any dance-floor they are set loose on. Pair one of these originals with the monstrous MUST DIE! remix of ‘Brainbug’, and you get a quaking eruption of bass cradled vibrations streamlined straight into your ears.
