While you may be very familiar with Diplo’s label Mad Decent, home to favorites like Dillon Francis, Rusko and Zeds Dead (not to mention Diplo and Major Lazer), you may be less so with their offshoot label/Tumblr blog Jeffree’s. We’ve covered some Jeffree’s releases here in the past and, while they are sporadic and hardly promoted or announced, have been consistent with the quality of the artists and tracks. In contrast to Mad Decent, Jeffree’s exists as more of a portal to connect otherwise unknown SoundClouders with a wider audience through which to distribute free music. The blog is unequivocally Mad Decent spawn, with a variety of tunes that would hardly be considered mainstream and a background that looks like it stepped out of Diplo’s dreams. Most recently, Jeffree’s released a 4-track EP featuring two new, previously unheard tracks from SoundCloud trap sensation UZ. Breathing life early on into the trap movement, UZ’s tracks went viral among several blogs, which is where I assume Mad Decent’s people picked up on it. If you are riding the trap movement with the rest of us, start downloading.

Probably the most notable release from Jeffree’s label has to be the trap anthem from Baauer “Harlem Shake”. Get it now if you don’t have it already.
