Looking for Bumps? (Volume 3)
Date: Jul 24, 2012 (Tuesday)By: Jordan Calvano
Welcome to Looking for Bumps; a weekly series hosted by The Untz that will bring listeners more content, and do it consistently so you will always have a place to find fresh new tracks. The series will feature new songs and previews of forthcoming releases while encompassing genres all across bass culture, with the desire to provide something for everyone, all the time.
Remember back in 2010 when it seemed every producer and their mother was finding a way to splice up “When I look At Look You” into their live sets? Well it’s a new year, and we have another huge Emalkay track that is sure to have the same effect on concertgoers as the last one. “Bring it Down” is a momentous song that features catchy vocal samples and charismatic drum hits that will have any listener going wild from start to finish; the perfect tune for those late Friday nights.
Every time Ellie Goulding puts out a new track, it is like Christmas for producers. The race begins the second she uploads anything new, as they quickly scramble to be one of the first to get their remix out. Well congratulations to Svyable + PRFFTT, who have won the race this time with a synth blaring, head rush inducing cut that has already garnered support from Goulding herself.
Comic Strips is an incredibly versatile producer, and you never really know what to expect when pressing play on any of his tracks. Well not to ruin the surprise, but his newest release is a dubbed out banger that features relentless high-pitched tones and tantalizing violin chords provided by none other than his girlfriend; prepare yourself, because this one will catch even the most die hard fans of Comic Strips off guard.
It was devastating news for many when word spread of Swedish House Mafia announcing their break up after this current tour. Fortunately for us they are putting out one more song together, and today we have a momentous edit of this track by teen sensation Jakob Liedholm that contains fist-pumping instrumentations and well-known vocal samples that perfectly sum up the trio’s goodbye to the world.
There is an inexplicable, awe-inspiring feeling that bubbles to the surface when a track is able to strike up a perfect balance between indie and electronica. This is the case for Etherwood's remix of “Moon Kids” by Laurelle & Alexander (self-proclaimed Hippy’s with Computers), which contains breathtaking vocal progressions layered under smooth piano chords and buttery snare hits.
This one goes out to everyone who loves getting down to tantalizing house bangers that feature addicting vocals and cliffhanging build-ups. Italian duo Promise Land are incredibly good at providing fans with just that, and most recently have crafted a thunderous summer anthem set to be released on August 14th; don’t let the preview tease you too much.
We featured a classic song from Michal Menert and Pretty Lights on our first edition of Looking for Bumps, and now we have some fresh tunes from the man himself to get you through the week. His mix via HOT107.1 features glitched out cuts from fellow members of Pretty Lights Music, along with bumpin’ original tracks from producers like SBTRKT and GRiZ that mesh together to create an hour of smooth soundscapes.
With a legend like Felix Da Housecat, there are going to be a lot of expectations that said producer will be unleashing hair raising tracks that might just possibly have nine lives. Well fortunately for us, he does just that on a dance worthy remix of a recent RAC track that contains lofty vocal progressions and creative guitar chords.
ProtoHype has a knack for producing pulsating cuts in a slew of different genres, which is evident from his continually changing style. His most recent remix is a dub hop banger that takes on a thunderous hip-hop song and adds a whole lot of bounce to elevate this track to the next level; unleash this bad boy on some big speakers for best results.
Delta Heavy has been gaining recognition at an incredibly rapid rate as of late while improving their quick paced and aggressive sound with every release. This continues on their most recent mixtape, which features some of the hardest hitting dubstep bangers to drop this past year, while adequately highlighting cuts from their ever-growing collection.
Closing out this week’s edition of Looking for Bumps is the visuals for Delta Heavy’s massive official remix of “R.I.P” by Rita Ora, which features the vocalist going crazy on stage to the dubbed out cut while rockin’ some steezy Jordan sneakers. The video also features a kaleidoscope of layering, which will distract the listener’s eyes while their minds rock out to thunderous drops.
