From Future Bass Fridays, officially the best thing coming out of White Raver Rafting these days, this new EP by Invention. I’m such a huge fan of the Future Bass sound, especially as the massive anthem era of 2011-2014 dies a hilariously painful death. Bluffs brings in some chilled beats through that remind you of walking around in the rain while trying to find your way in the world. Tight, lush sounds that wash over you this EP needs your after-party or lounging attention. Equip & Moon Life keep the serene vibe going, each, moving in their own delightfully downtempo way. This is hammock music, or snuggling someone you like in a blanket after getting home from a ridiculous weekend. Sumac rounds out the little joint with some jazzy cyberlounge, if that’s even a thing yet. The track reminds strongly of Ninja Tune, which is saying something, as my friends out there that know their downtempo can attest.
If you’ve been keeping track, you’ve probably realized I love the Summer House sound. This tropical, rambling, slowed down groove is definitely a great creation to fight back against the brolectro & big room that has been dominant the last couple of years. Galantis & others are doing great work in the more chilled house space, and now, Hyperbits & Jenaux strike with an even Summery-er (I know, not a word. Yet) House remix. The huge Progressive hook in the track gives it this shining, euphoric feel that I can’t wait to see get played in live sets. The energy is up and it never gets too cheesy. Put it into your face when you need a pick me up, it’s good for what ails you. (via White Raver Rafting)
Damn. 10+ hours of music, dedicated to the festival that’s happening again here in the good old USA in just over 50 days. If you want to know what the kids are listening to, or if you just have hours and hours to kill with some of the biggest tracks of the season, White Raver Rafting has got you covered. I don’t even know where to start when it comes to these tunes, but with hits from Avicii, Bassnectar, Garrix, Diplo, Zedd, Tiesto, Datsik, A-Trak, Richie Hawtin, Nervo, Ferry Corsten IN JUST THE FIRST HOUR ALONE, I think you know where this is going. Tons of music, to put into your face during your August cookouts and basement DJ sessions.
