Ill-Esha Holds No Labels

Ill-Esha continues to make some noise with some collaborations and remixes. The multi talented artist bounces between genres on After School with Slicarus from Australia and Almost There by Aceyalone. You just cannot define her to one sound or label. Her remix leaning on the trap bass side as opposed to electronica, more familiar to Slic. The tracks come following her Open The Vault EP showcasing previous undeniably dope work and reaching 40k followers on the cloud.

Recently featured in a Boiler Room Denver set sponsored by Budweiser. A live set displaying her vocals and beat work. A performance I got to witness back in Chicago during the Taste with local  trio the Rapper Chicks. Again emphasizing her various talents and interests in an interview with my self, Ill-Esha, Angel(ee-nuh) and Hologram Kizzie after their performance. Continuing to push the boundaries musically, whatever Ill-Esha creates next should be exciting!

RAAKMO Turns Day To Night with these Remixes

Claiming to have the “Hardest Music in Chicago”, we would like to see anyone step up to the plate. You cannot go harder than Hardstyle, and RAAKMO is credited with some the best to come out of the city. Invited to some of the most wild parties such as Porn and Chicken Monday Night Dance Party, why? Just take a listen to his recent series of remixes.

Now RAAKMO typically leans towards Hardstyle but what makes any good artist is to blend style and make your own. His Rich Chigga remix has a trap bass foundation to it but you can clearly hear his hardstyle influence.  Just as well with his Turn Day Turn Night remix with VOVIII.  RAAKMO has an interesting Hardstyle infused trap formula and it works well with his collaborators. With Keku however they two stuck to hardstyle with they remix of Chupacabra by Carnage.

Hear GAWTBASS To The Top EP or Get Schooled

Coming from Illinois Graham Gawthorpe aka GAWTBASS grew up involved in music from the start. Becoming proficient in percussive instruments, guitar and the cello by 18 yrs of age before hitting that expert level and decided to teach guitar. Gawthorpe has also been apart of bands before deciding to take things a different direction. Once he got hold of electronic music he took off.

In just 3 years of producing he has hundreds of thousands of plays on his soundcloud and major record labels in his pocket. Getting much popularity remixing popular artists alongside his heavy trap singles. Early July saw the release of his debut EP To The Top. The 3 track project packs a punch but it seems like light work for this producer. The bass will rock your head off and this guy is offering what he knows. I would say take advantage of this EP and his tutoring!

Solstis remixes Nelly Fertado

Nelly Furtado, a pop icon in mid 2000’s has many hits rolling off the tongues of reminiscent fans till this day. Put her songs on a throwback playlist and you will set off any party. As many other artists have, Solstis take a shot at remixing Say It Right and they revive it. Beautifully adding synths smoothly over a bass line without drawing too much away from the original melody.

An uplifting beat following their remix of Cry Wolf by Luna Shadows and a move to Seattle from their hometown Chicago. In the wake of a decision to commit to music the duo are following up with an EP soon to come. A 9to5 can be very distracting. Meanwhile you can sit back relax and dance to this.

Shadow all the while takes the minimalistic approach, keeping you on on your toes and dazed. Three incredible tracks just in time for a mini tour while as fans indulge on New Years mischief.

Cofresi Frenzy

Ben Cofresi continues to challenge his creativity with his remixes. With a pattern of picking very popular and talented artists to recreate music from. Following Imogen Heap among the list of artists, Cofresi looked to more similar talents like James Blake and Bon Iver, who created the deeply beautiful tune I Need A Forest Fire. A track beautiful composed and yet Cofresi was able to redesign it and create a future bass track without hurting the quality of the original.

Turning to more familiar tunes. You may have heard this song serenading many playlists and radio stations. Alina Baraz seductive voice floating along Galimatias graceful melody Fantasy. Cofresi joins the many to remix the song but Ben has a talent on the drums that sticks out amongst others and he handles it well. If you are in Chicago this December 17th you can check out Cofresi work the drum pads and midi keys at the Bottom Lounge opening up for the Main Squeeze. In the meantime grab these tracks for free and play them loud.
