Remember the days when Daft Punk was considered to be a quasi electronic music pioneer and was killing it with tracks such as “Harder, Faster, Strongerm” “One More Time” and “Around The World”? Electronic music has changed so much in just a handful of years that the simpler, very melodic and organized, style that Daft Punk held on so dearly too seems to be fading away and away. Sure there will always be artists that will produce music that can be compared to Daft Punk but lets be honest… the popularity of said genre is being put aside for chaotic bangers and brain frying wobbles.
Enter Oopart. Oopart‘s track Robot Talk Show reminds me of Daft Punk mid 2000′s electronic style and is a refreshing injection into my increasing chaotic music library. Robot Talk Show is a cool track that will be a perfect fit for any snowboarding or skiing playlist (snowboarding and skiing references are going to increase FYI as the season is only a few months away!) or any other playlist that you need some upbeats sounds on. Cheers. Make sure to check out Oopart here.

The Knux have grabbed some Kid Cudi talent and feature him on their latest release “The Run.” The Run has a completely different sound than most other hip hop tracks out there and has a chill enough vibe for summer. A beat that sounds like more like the instrumentals from an indie track than our usual hip hop beat creates a super happy-go-lucky vibe throughout the entire song. Kid Cudi’s contribution to this track is short but fits in nicely to this alternative hip hop jam. “The Run” is off of the Knux upcoming album “Eraser.”

Sucka Free CJ has been working on a new mixtape for some time now. Periodic facebook updates have led us to believe that the mixtape is coming along, yet relatively far from done.
Sucka Free CJ’s style is tight; this song is a perfect example. Though in “Sidewalk Strut” Sucka Free CJ gets away from his ambient hip hop roots, “Sidewalk Strut” holds true to an overall feel-good, chill vibe. The beat is super fresh… jazzy and smooth.
I don’t keep track of when spring ends/summer starts… but with this warm weather and this super chill song… I can say the seasons have officially switched for me… Hello Summer!

No, this isn’t your typical Nancy Sinatra track – not at all…
This track is an electrified, amped up version of the original – in fact, it barely resembles Nancy Sinatra’s music at all. White Noise does a hell of a job here. A lot of people do not like dubstep – dubstep haters will, most likely, enjoy the hell out of this song.
Aside from the begining and a short interlude, this track is extremely upbeat and very danceable/partyable whatever you wantable. Have an awesome weekend folks – make sure to check back on Sunday for a PTSL exclusive we’re pretty stoked about: PTSL’s Softer Sunday’s style.
I hate to let too short a time to pass before I post about the same artists… but so much fire is being released from the same artists I cant help it! After having just making Big Z PTSL’s artist of the week I feel as though I’ve been giving everyone a Big Z overload. No worries, this post is dedicated to his new mixtape, it’s tight and well worth any Big Z overdose you may be fearing… it’s really tight. As always Big Z’s remixes sound like 100% original tracks and create an entirely new vibe to each and every song he mixes. Below are our favorite tracks – there is also a full download link.
Make sure to check Big Z out on facebook here.

I remember when this track came out several years ago… it was on repeat on my iTunes for days, if not weeks, on end – I played the original version of this track to death and haven’t really been able to listen to it since. Alas! There is hope again… a fresh way for those of you who (like myself) killed this track to enjoy it again…
Enter Colorado DJ/producers Slim Thugz; the duo comes through with a total rejuvenation of the track. Adding drums, bass, sythns, a *hint* of dubstep, and a healthy portion of glitch. I’m loving the injection of electro in this track – it turns it in to a whole new animal. This is a must download and an addition for a variety of your playlists. Shout out to Luke (again) for this track!
Make sure to check out the Slim Thugz Facebook Page here.
It’s cool to see Theo Martins is experimenting with some different types of music – ranging from the methodic energy of house music to the unpredictable insanity that is dubstep. His latest release “Sincerely Yours, The Dance Floor” manages to work in several different types of electronic genres into the beats – creating a more dynamic and energetic type of electro-hip hop. The album is good – some of the tracks took a few times for us to really start to enjoy but others we got hooked on immediately. Below are two of our favorite tracks from “Sincerely Yours, The Dance Floor.”
Our favorite of the two tracks below is “Final Fantasy.” It features rising indie sensation (and PlayThisSongLoud veteran) Starfucker and has a really happy vibe to it. Make sure to check Theo Martins out here!

Up in northern Vermont there is a small, super heady, town on the banks of Lake Champlain where musical roots run deep… very deep (ever hear of a little band called Phish?) This is the stomping ground of mashup/remix artist Cake Effect (sick name right?) Watch out White Panda… Watch out Hood Internet… there is a new sheriff in town. Cake Effect has entered the mashup/remix scene with guns blazing – double barrel shotgun style.
I’ve literally seen and heard Cake Effect progress as a mashup/remix artist over the past several months and, not to sound too cliché, he shows no sign of slowing down. The tracks coming from Cake Effect’s sound laboratory have been fire and are only getting hotter. The paragraph above is not too far fetched, the music from Cake Effect rivals the most seasoned of mashup/remix artists – despite being a young gun in the genre. Relatively new to the game, Cake Effect hasn’t blown up (yet) but promises to do so. Follow this artist and you will not be disappointed; possessing a fierce love for the music he creates only fuels Cakes Effect’s fire.
This track combines three well thought out tracks and displays Cake Effect’s ability to seamlessly mash genres (and add some of his own personal flare) that stand at polar opposite ends of the music spectrum. Perfect for partying, awesome for riding, and hard enough for a workout playlist – this track does it all. This isn’t Cake Effect’s first appearance on PlayThisSongLoud.com and it certainly will not be the last.
Needless to say, and simply put, we are eagerly awaiting more releases. Do yourself a favor and check out Cake Effect’s facebook page for updates, new tracks, and other info about the artist – make sure to give him the ole’ facebook “like.”
Feeling sick as a dog so this is going to be brief (the noise of the keys poundings kills my dome.)
Two days ago I posted another Travis Barker + Hip Hop track… I’m following up with another one because I think this one is even better than the last. I repeat – it’s all about the drums here folks – love the percussion flow + hip hop. I’m not a Luda fan, in fact I think he’s a cornball, but his part doesn’t kill me in this track… everything else is just right on.
Pac Div’s Mania! mixtape finally dropped the other day – it’s “hosted” by Don Cannon and has some shout outs throughout – they are tolerable for the amount of sweet hip hop that is on the mixtape. A lot of the beats on the mixtape are deep and send out a serious type of vibe, something that I think a lot of people will enjoy. I’m posting my favorite track off of the album – an extremely upbeat track with a cheerful feel throughout; probably the most upbeat track on the mixtape. Download the whole mixtape here.

Perhaps one of the coolest things about K.O. Kid is the selection of beats he raps over. You’ll find that K.O. typically prefers energetic electro beats. K.O. finds it best to choose productions that compliment his fast and energetic flow – hence the fast disco sounding beats you’ll hear on Chromeostasis. The whole mixtape is worth a listen, for now… find a couple of our favorite tracks below.

This is one that passed me by until very recently. Despite producing beats and emceeing for several years, Damu was below my radar. I finally picked up him and can say that his style is right up my chill-hip-hop-loving alley. His sounds kind of remind me of earlier hip hop, before it was destroyed by mainstream labels and MTV.
I think a lot of you will enjoy this; just realize that this guy makes his own, very soulful, music – from beats to raps. Damu been known to just set his gear up in city parks in Washington D.C., NYC, etc. and just start putting on a free live show for whoever happens to be around. Clearly in the game to make epic music for epic listeners, Damu is one to look into; make sure to check out his older and new stuff… it is all good.
Below are a couple tracks that I found to be particularly legit.
I love Aesop Rock. Aesop Rock is like the James Joyce of rap/hip-hop creating arguably the biggest disputes over song meanings and themes throughout the hip hop industry. What may sound like a barrage of nonsense, some argue, is carefully calculated syntax with extremely hidden underlying messages and meanings. This song, Take a Titty Out, seems to go against Aesop Rock’s typical song structure as it is much more concise.
Anyways, the song is upbeat and the fact that its named “Take a Titty Out” makes me laugh… a good addition for your music libraries.

Having recently features a verse from Oncue in a Big Z Remix it’s only appropriate we provide you with
Oncue’s latest release “It Usually Goes.”
I like Oncue… his raps flow with emotion and he usually works with some pretty solid production and beats. This was just released; it is a good sign to come for Cant Wait, Oncues next project.
Enjoy and Happy Friday.
