Trak of the Day — Wilks – Ghetto
Super excited to have this guys track up here for Track of the Day!! Wilks, one of our favorite up and coming Los Angeles based producer/DJ’s, will be helping his degrade.la crew hold down the front room tomorrow night at LAMP pres. Plastic Plates at the Wilshire in Santa Monica. He is for sure a G-house aficionado with a particular affinity for that West Coast style. Following his EP release in December, the Los Angeles producer started 2014 with this new original record, titled G Thang. The track borrows vocal samples from “Aint Nothin’ but A G Thang”, which become a ghetto anthem over the song’s dark, chugging bassline. Full of deep melodies and classic house chords, G Thang is designed to get the dance floor moving. Click the player above for a FREE DOWNLOAD and make sure to check out some of his other productions. Much more to come from this great producer in 2014 for sure.
Track of the Day — Hannah Wants & Chris Lorenzo – Rude Boy
Taken from their SoundCloud Page: “standard procedure: you need some decent speakers or headphones to fully feel the track.”
I was so excited when I saw this duo on the list of tracks that my boy Wilks picked for his guest mix this week. I have been musically in love with these two for the last couple of years. They produce on their own as well but when they come together its always magic. This particular selection titled “Rude Boy” with its booming bass lines is a personal favorite of mine. I would go running if I ever heard these two were gonna play together here in Los Angeles. To my knowledge that has not happened yet. Chris Lorenzo however will be playing Night Bass with AC Slater, Ardalan and Bones at Sound later this month. I will definitely be running to that one.
We are only a day away from LAMP Pres. Plastic Plates, Brooks and Millar, & Templeton Friday May 2nd. We are so excited to be back at the Wilshire in Santa Monica and joining us to take over the front room is the crew from degrade.LA including SNBRN, MODUS both destroying decks all over the place lately and the man bringing you all the great selections this week Wilks. Its gonna be a great night for sure. Click the banner above to RSVP and get in for $5 before 11pm. $10 the rest of the evening.
