Trentino Chicagos Remix King [ Free Downloads ]

Hip hop, rap and electronic dance music have not always been so harmonious together but over the past decade genres like dubstep, Trap and Bass created a bridge for the styles to be combined. EDM artist like their production to breathe freely while Hip Hop artist need a simple repetitive beat to emphasize the flow of their verses. Artists like Trentino, being a lover of both worlds found a formula working those two together as if the genres were always compatible, made for each other.

Following an R&B EDM remix of Purple Peanuts by Rama Duke Trentino remixes another two popular artists. Derez DeShaun and A$AP Ferg get caught in the crosshairs for a couple of revisions.  Hardaway and Plain Jane can now find their way into a club for music lovers do jump around, throw their elbows or just dance to. What will Trentino pick out next, and original or remix and by who? Can only guess what music his library in his head is ready to be revived.

Probcause Sees Past Distractions

Probcause unleashes another project. It seems the more his library expands the more his conscience expands as well. In this EP Prob breaks down lifes facades so tastefully and painlessly, you would not have known you been hit with the truth. Drifters being his last big project, Distractions follows many collabs and single release and tour dates up to this point.

Working with artist most recently by the likes of Russ Liquid, the Floozie, Jay Prime, Def3. Griz continues work with our local as well. Embarking on a tour with Grieves, Prob found room in his schedule to headline his own show at Chop Shop in Chicago with Jaw Gems. There is almost no limit to the extent of Probcause reach at this point. Having enough influence to spread messages through his music and animated skits effectively.

ProbCause – White Lies (Produced by Griz)

White Lies is a song I have been working on for a couple years now. Ironically I wrote most of this song before the Trump administration took office. The lyrics have unfortunately become increasingly relevant in the last year and I felt that now was a good time to share this with you. Thank you to GRiZ for producing the song that inspired these lyrics and thank you to Elijah Alvarado for creating the visuals with me.

Posted by ProbCause on Tuesday, November 28, 2017

More than just his work ethic, Probcauses mindset and passion is just as commendable and he gets together the perfect set of people to deliver some about 6 good Distractions. From Lembo to Drew Mantia and the Belief Cycle, Cobrayama and Griz gets his message out right. From the small things like procrastination, love to material and physical Prob goes over it all. Even got fellow activist Griz, who did his work to stop Net Neutrality repeal, to put on blast the misdirection going on in America with White Lies. The level of awareness this EP holds is quite refreshing. Good to see more artists spreading the good word. Now quit the distractions and Pick Up and Go.

ShowYouSuck Gets Real Cool

This song can join the playlist next to the Woods from Probcause as one of those nonchalant beats. Nothing but good vibes with Cool, a song about cool things.  It is actually refreshing to hear lyrics unrelated to the usual money, sex, drugs. I mean everyone can bump a good party song but if you can be entertaining with friendly lyrics that just spreads love and fun then you can do more than most. Get loose to this, no need to take life seriously always, no ones too cool for a good time!

Ric Wilson the Human

Just cause he can, Ric Wilson releases two tracks randomly. Might mean more new music on the way, might not. This creative soul from the South Side of Chicago just released Negrow Disco EP earlier in the year and he is just following up. Also coming up with a music video for Hangloose from the EP and a collab track with Hurley Mower. Droppin music almost discreetly you just need to keep your eyes and ears open for info like marking down January 4 on your calender.

Every song is different so far as he jumps genres and molds them together, mixing in Hip Hop and Soul, Dance and other elements. You can hear the difference between the two recent releases. What If I Was White, a poem wrote for Sofar Chicago pointing out obvious moral and social injustices in our society compared to We Don’t KnowYou can expect his next project to have more hip hop lyrical influence. For now keep posted at the links below for new music and events.
