If you could imagine what a collaboration between RL Grime & What So Not would sound like, it would undoubtably be similar to “Tell Me”. The melodic and sonic creativity of What So Not meshes perfectly with the intense, trap-infused style of RL Grime. As catchy as it is loud, “Tell Me” is destined to be a hit, especially with spring-breakers. Enjoy!
Take out those bikinis, bathing suits, and sunscreen bottles because Big Wild has just released a new track today and it has the perfect vibe for those winter time blues. Meshing together future RnB melodies with latin grooves, “La Brisa” is sure to give you a little taste of the warm weather to come. dankVIBES is pleased to say that we are now managing this musical mastermind, and believe us when we say that this is only the start of some BIG THINGS TO COME. Stay tuned amigos.

Its been about a year since Daft Punk spilled their latest album, Random Access Memories, and we’ve seen a lot of remixes in the aftermath of it all. Today we’ve got something special and a little different than most of the stuff you’ve heard out there: Brooklyn based dance/bass producer, Mike Irish, aka MYSTRESS, just released this RAD remix of “Get Lucky,” and I guarantee its like nothing else out there. The track begins with a deceiving, happy, airy, melodic intro, and drops into a funky, tribal, and somewhat dark groove. He then brings it back to the disco-funk feel, incorporating an amazing live saxophone solo by 60 year old sax shredder, SoSaLa, and tying it perfectly into the second “drop.” MYSTRESS ultimately transforms the track into something completely different from the original, with the only main similarity being the use of bits and pieces of the lyrics. It’s something you can really get weird to on the dance floor, and we like that. So much soul. So much groove. A lot of steez. MYSTRESS is only getting started, so keep an ear out for more killer, unique, original tracks on the horizon. Enjoy this FREE DOWNLOAD in the meantime.
We are very excited to introduce you to Jackson Stell, aka BIG WILD, one half of the Brooklyn hip-hop/bass duo, MYSTRESS. His new EP is something beautifully different, drawing inspiration from Native American music, today’s electronic sounds, and the spiritual force of Mother Nature. ‘Native Echoes’ is a musical journey from beginning to end, with a variety of soothing electronic sounds, Native American vocals, and an enchanting, rhythmic, moving beat that will have you lost in the land of sound, and left in a state of wonder. BIG WILD’s sound is a prime example of electronic music that maintains an organic feel, which I crave now more than ever in this age of synthetic sounds and songs. And this isn’t his first tea party. If you check out his SoundCloud, you’ll see that he has quite the quiver of swinging, soulful hip-hop and electronic tracks. So here it is, his new EP, along with a few more of our favorites. Enjoy.
Sydney based Emoh Instead (one-half of WHAT SO NOT), has been established as a deft DJ for a good while, but recently showed the world that he is also an incredibly skilled producer, with the release of his debut EP, Say So ( featuring his two first original tracks). Today he dropped a grooving, soulful, melodic, housey remix of Elizabeth Rose’s warm weather anthem, “The Good Life” (Unfortunately it’s colder than a witch’s nipple in a brass bra where I am right now). You can bet your sweet behinds that this is only the start of this guys music making career. Music like this gives me hope that someday the global dance music movement will start to veer towards putting soul back into their songs.
Here’s a HUGE new 100 bpm BOUNCE track by our homies BRO SAFARI, UFO!, and Jesse Slayter. These guys are always doing something different, and we really like that here at dankVIBES. “Beat It Up” is guaranteed to get booties shaking on the dance floor. The drum work is rad, the samples are strange yet appropriate, and that bass line that comes in at 1:36 really brings the funk/groove.
You can always count on our favorite Aussie dance music duo, WHAT SO NOT, to deliver something different. “Jaguar,” the latest track from Harley (Flume) and Chris (Emoh Instead) combines tribal bass, aboriginal sounds and beautiful female vocals, resulting in something that is without a doubt, out of the ordinary. These guys are going to take over the dance music realm in 2014, and hopefully will set a trend amongst other artists in creating universally appealing, soulful, organic tracks. PREORDER THIS TRACK NOW!
NEW SOUND REMEDY IS FINALLY HERE! It’s been a while since the remix master has blessed us with some new music, and now he is back with a beautiful, melodic, progressive house remix of SHEL’s, “When The Sky Fell.” I normally can’t stand progressive house (sorry if its your main squeeze), but SOUND REMEDY has a way of making every genre he tackles simply stunning and breathtaking. Now go enjoy the FREE DOWNLOAD.
Today we’ve got a new funk-house track by one of our new favorite producers, AIRWOLF, and fellow Aussie collaborator, Jasper. “Imitation” is a timeless, groovy, sexy dance tune where the days of disco/funk meet modern electronic production capabilities. This one is sure to have you funking out, whether you are on the dance-floor, in the office, at school, or God forbid, court. Be careful where you listen to this one, and enjoy the FREE DOWNLOAD responsibly.
Three years ago, our favorite Aussie bass duo, What So Not, formed when Emoh met Harley (Flume) in H’s bedroom. This new original of theirs, “Touched,” formed from an idea that spurred on that historic night. I say this in just about every post about these guys, but they have found the perfect balance between organic and electronic sounds, creating universally appealing dance music that you can’t quite label “EDM.” We love it, and this newest track is probably one of their best yet. Oh, and its a FREE DOWNLOAD, so cop this jazz and get weird.
Here’s a huge new club tune by the upcoming Melbourne-based, dance music enthusiast, AIRWOLF. Already established as DJ in 4 Australian states, he has become a prominent producer over the past year, and the release of this funk-fused, electro jam, “Hanging On,” shows how talented he is, as well as how unique his sound is. Start following this guy, because he is about to blow up.
So we haven’t got any posts up in a while because I’ve been on tour with Bro Safari and the wifi on the tour bus was giving us all kinds of problems. Now we are jumping back on it with SOME GOLD for you (or should I say bronze?). Without further ado, we’d like to introduce you to AUSTIN’s very own electronic duo, BRONZE WHALE. A friend showed me these guys a few months ago, and I was instantly hooked to their carrying, smooth beats and euphoric and mystical melodies. Here is their newest track, a remix of Tom Aspauls tune, “Indiana.” FREE DOWNLOAD, check. Be sure to follow them via the social media links below.
We are pleased to bring you this DANK new remix by our friends from Brooklyn, Jackson Stell and Mike Irish, aka MYSTRESS. They take Tupac’s classic, “Still Ballin,” and add their signature, enchanting and cinematic orchestral build, then pump it up to a super unique, tribal, organic-sounding bass banger. These guys are a killer duo, and I know that this is only them getting warmed up. Its just getting started, so you can expect some more fire sparking up from these fellas.
New B!UNT FORCE track? That’s what we like to hear. Our Austin, TX homie, Brian Gustafson, brings the perfect mix of funk and bass to SwAy’s, “Red Dawn,” in his newest refunk. This guy is only just getting started, and I know he’s got some serious tricks up his sleeve, so be on the look out. GRAB THE FREE DOWNLOAD HERE.
HOLY C*W. Just when I thought this song couldn’t get any better, it did. FLUME brings OG Indiana rapper, FREDDIE GIBBS, to his platinum track, “Holdin’ On,” turning this epic hip-hop instrumental into a colossal rap anthem. This track will be available on the Flume: Deluxe Edition on November 8 (no free download unfortunately). Pre-order October 18th. Damn this wait. Guess we will have to blast it from SoundCloud in the meantime.
I haven’t been posting as much dubstep (and trap) lately, partially because there hasn’t been much fresh/unique stuff coming our way (not saying there isn’t more of it out there). Well Baltimore based producer LOGUN seems to never let us down with his choice, hip-hop based tracks. Today he sparked this wildfire, a remix of Big Tymers’ classic, “Still Fly.” LOGUN does it all, maintaing the original swagger of the track, and boosting it up for dance floors with some big dubstep/trappy beats, amazing sound design and some dirty synths/growls. It was more than post worthy to say the least. Now go grab the FREE DOWNLOAD, crank up the sub woofer, and jam this banger.
DISCLAIMER: dankVIBES and LOGUN are not responsible for any falling/damaged wall fixtures or spilt beverages as a result of the powerful bass force emerging from this track.
Here’s a a new banger, simple, sweet, and straight thug. Dallas, TX bass enthusiasts AFK and SPENCA team up to bring you this hood-bass anthem. Biggie samples, some 808, a few bass growls, and a synth that is out of this world make this a song that is likely to get dropped by some big names at a lot of upcoming shows (already receiving support from 12th Planet, Protohype and Crizzly). Did we mention its a free download?
Today we are celebrating a little something special: the release of “Celebrating Nothing” by the sensational electro-shoegaze-infused, indie-rock duo, PHANTOGRAM. This new track gives a little teaser of what is to come on their new self-titled EP, set to release less than a week from now. We’ve been awaiting something new from these guys for a good while, and they met our expectations by all means. A swooping, punchy beat on top of airy, beautifully-moving, brass ambient tracks, meets Sarah Barthel’s amazing vocals once again.
