This is that future bass. This project is what progressive music is all about. Artist collective Soulection partnered with clothing brand Stussy to put together a compilation that reflects the cultures of both companies and “brings visibility to the future sound.” Twenty different artists are showcased on this compilation; synths, a little reggae-dub, ambient, bass, and hip-hop are just some of the flavors you’ll get a taste of. While all the artists have their own unique style, they each possess an ultra chill ambient vibe to give the compilation the cohesive flow that makes it so pleasing to listen to. Perfect for wake ‘n bake, summertime cruisin, and relaxation. On the mix you’ll find Red Bull Music Academy grad Ta-ku, Mr. Carmack, Jarreau Vandal (who did an ultra jazzy remix of G-Eazy’s Let’s Get Lost), Sango, GoldLink, along with even more underground gems that you may not have heard of before. Hop on that future bass wave and coast. You can download the compilation for free from Bandcamp or donate a few dollars if you’re feeling generous.

Australian label Pilerats Records just released a compilation that’s pretty much the soundtrack for your groovy hipster Brooklyn party. We’ve got some big names on this one like Ryan Hemsworth, Trippy Turtle, Vaski, up and coming producer Electric Mantis, as well as some other acts that may not be as familiar. All-around though, everyone delivers standout performances on Rat Pack #1. I really enjoyed this tape because it has it all: house, bass, disco, electronic, jersey club, and trap too. All the artists exhibit their own unique styles while still maintaing a cohesive feel for the entire tape. You can download Rat Pack #1 for free using the above link, but if you want to donate a few bucks, you can name your price and download from Bandcamp too.
