Posted in Bangin by Bryan | Tags: , , , , ,


It's quite fitting of Diplo to rekindle a collaboration with Toronto producer / DJ Grandtheft for a remix that could potentially rule the club and festival scenes this coming season. They two previously combined forces in 2012 on the massive remix of Calvin Harris's "Sweet Nothing" featuring the sultry voice of Florence Welsh (of Florence and the Machine). Now two years later, Diplo and Grandtheft take over another Calvin Harris release as they transform the progressive house vibes from the radio hit "Summer" into a certified trap and bass heater that is begging to be flexed in-front of a live audience. Stream the song below and pick up on iTunes if you're feeling it. Enjoy

World Premiere: Catch Lungs ft. Danny Brown – Gotta Kill This : Incredible Gritty Rap Collaboration [Free Download]

Posted in Bangin by nick | Tags: , , , , ,


Excited to bring you the latest from Catch Lungs, one of Colorado’s most promising rappers. Around 2 years back I posted his Awake In a Dream album which featured underground hip-hop heavyweights eLZhi, Guilty Simpson, Blu among others. Today we have the newest single from Catch featuring none other then Detroit’s own star Danny Brown appropriately titled “Gotta Kill This”, which both rappers certainly do. The production has trippy far out vibe full of gunshot samples and gritty synths. Catch delivers some grimy, unique lines really showcasing his awesome style. Danny offers one of the hottest, filthiest verses I’ve ever heard with the winning outrageous line being “Bust a nut on her butt, call that baby sitting”. Both rappers aren’t afraid to say anything, leaving you equally shocked and impressed with almost every word. This is the first track to be released from Catch Lungs upcoming mixtape titled L.S.D. and if it’s any sign of what the release will hold we are in for quite a treat. Listen below to the world premiere and grab an exclusive free download while available. Enjoy!
