Keep a close eye on this rather elusive producer coming out of New Jersey. Jimmy Butler, soon to be known commonly know as ‘buji.’, for better or for worse, is touting some serious sound production at the age of fifteen. Butler recently showcased his remix of Drake’s ‘The Ride’ as a turkey day treat. No telling if this will be released for free but it certainly pounds with enough force and flavor to keep you invested in determining if it does get tossed up for grabs. The remix spans a lengthy five plus minutes and buji. creates a radiating oceanic-bass flavored anthem, flooding your sound system with an sweeping mist of electronic synths, bleeps, melodies, and percussive breakdowns. Do take note of the name as there is sure to be more musical delights pooling in from this young and talented northeastern producer.

We’ve known Party Ghost to be incredibly well-versed in producing electronic music, but his latest compilation just might be the greatest testament to that statement. Once a steady crafter of explosive and exhilarating productions ranging from electro and dubstep, to mid-temp and mash-ups, Party Ghost has flipped the script with the delivery of his recent EP, ‘VPR’.

Spread over four productions, ‘VPR’ is an idyllic example of how a producer can evolve and transform their style and sound to create works of music that still have the capacity to grab and engage their listeners. While ‘VPR’ doesn’t quite have your typical Party Ghost electro stompers, it is nonetheless filled with moving, emotionally rich and lustrous arrangement of electronic sounds from emotive vocal bits, stirring hi-hats, and punchy snares to deep kick drums, burst of spirited melodies and anthemic breakdowns. Whether this is a new direction for Party Ghost or an simply experimental EP, we’ll take it either way, with pleasure.

Remember the rapper Jibbs? That’s okay—neither does anyone else. But I am willing to bet that you remember his one hit “Chain Hang Low” because most of you probably did a little bumping & grinding to it at a high school dance or something along those lines. Anyway, nostalgia aside, the talented Colorado duo BearsOhMy went and turned the long-forgotten crunk hit and put their own unique spin on it, turning it into a high energy certified bass/trap heater. Snag up this free download and get the honeys bouncing at your next high school reunion. And if you’re in the area, you can catch BearsOhMy with LoudPvck this Sunday (420!!) at the Fox Theater in Boulder.

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.
