Milo and Otis – Friendly City (We Are Your Friends) + Luck + Siren (Just One) : 3 Funky Bass Heavy Moombahton / Electro TracksPosted in Bangin by nick | Tags: BANGER, Bass Music, Electro, Heavy, Milo and Otis, Moombahton
Today I have 3 free heavy tracks that remind me a little bit a of Dillon Francis. The tracks come from Milo and Otis the duo the made the Wonderwall Mommbah remix. They have a certain happy upbeat rhythm to their tracks, yet enough bass to satisfy just about everyone. The first “Friendly City” samples the perfect amount of “We Are Your Friends”, making it impossible not to sing along. Next up is Luck, which really reminds me a little bit of Dillon Francis I.D.G.A.F.O.S..Lastly a track called Siren (Just One), which is a heavy all out BANGER complete with piercing Moombah synths at the drops. All three of these tracks pack a lot of bass, and they are for free, Milo and Otis, have a bright future ahead of them. Turn these up, enjoy!

Today I’ve got a real catchy track from one of the best household hip hop names, Wiz Khalifa. I will always respect him and his team’s grind for always building up his fanbase with mixtapes. His recent Taylor Aldderdice mixtape was a sick chill ride, following up his classic Kush & OJ mixtape. Well this is the first track off his upcoming new album, and it’s sick. It’s got a really solid beat that’s got an overall chill vibe with some BIG bass. Wiz states the secret to his success.. working hard. Rapping about how rich you are get’s pretty old, but Wiz manages to do it well. As I bonus I’ve included an older throwback track of his B.A.R. mixtape featuring Empire of The sun called “The Thrill”. I know some of you have never heard this one. Enjoy the new and old!
