what i'm listening to

Before Valentino Khan was producing some of the biggest electronic dance tracks of the last few years, he was producing hip-hop tracks for artists including T.I., 2 Chainz, Bruno Mars, B.o.B Tyga. His most recent single, 'Lick It' is a refreshing bass house inspired track and was one of the most played tracks at Ultra Music Festival this past weekend.

'Foolture' by Nick Benet is by far one of my favorite chill dance tracks. This single is a blend of underground, deep and garage house and brilliantly samples Kid Cudi's track, 'Day N Nite', adding even more dimension to the sweeping beat.

The final track featured this week is 'Takeover' by VILLAGE; a unique but dreamy combination of lo-fi, future bass and indie electronic. This single still carries a timeless feel despite being released over 5 years ago and it's its sampling of 'Donald Trump' by Mac Miller is more ironic than ever given our current political state.
