Featuring bangers from DJ Fresh vs Diplo, dubstep champ Funtcase, Brain Splat and Squnto, and Bro Safari featuring UFO! ACE™ bandage those wrists before getting too TURNT!
1. DJ Fresh vs. Diplo – “Earthquake” Feat. Dominique Young Unique
DJ Fresh vs. our Philly bredren Diplo‘s “Earthquake” featuring Dominique Young Unique was declared the “Hottest Record in the World” by Zane Lowe when he debuted it on his BBC Radio 1 show on May 9th. DJ Fresh’s new album isn’t due for release until 2014 (via Ministry of Sound Recordings (UK) and Columbia Records (US)), but this jam is featured on the soundtrack for Kickass 2, one of this summer’s sure-to-be blockbusters.
2. FuntCase – “Out For Da Milli”
Here we have the single from Okayfuture favorite FuntCase out of the UK with his track “Out For Da Milli.” FuntCase is mostly known for his drum & bass and dubstep, so it only makes sense that FuntCase + Trap = Certified Banger. Truth.
3. Bro Safari – “Burn the Block” featuring UFO!
Bro Safari’s “Burn the Block” featuring UFO! samples Notorious B.I.G., and was released this week to commemorate what would have been the rapper’s 41st birthday. “Burn the Block” is a single off of Bro Safari and UFO!’s LP Animal, which is available in it’s entirety for free DL right cheeaaa.
4. Kai Wachi & Squnto – “Brain Splat” [Free Download]
Last, but not least, is some heavy trap (dubstep-ish, trap-step.. whatever, it bangs) by Kai Wachi & Squnto called “Brain Splat,” and rightfully so. The 18-year-old Kai Wachi from Boise, Idaho teamed up with Squnto to incorporate the best of heavy bass paired with that catchy trap 808 we all love. YaDigg?!
