Beautiful Bass Music. Those are the three words I’d use to describe the new collaboration by Crywolf and Aylen featuring the vocals of Charity Lane. Crywolf has really been impressing us lately and this free release comes in anticipation of his Ghosts EP out on Always Never Records (founded by Le Castle Vania) this Spring. “Silence Pt. II” dropped less than a week after Crywolf released his previous track “Oceans“, also for free. The help of fellow up-and-coming Bassmaster Aylen was a great choice on this, as we rocked out in January to his remix of Dillon Francis’ “Popped a Molly I’m Sweatin“. On “Silence Pt. II”, however, we’re treated to a melodic Dubstep track with hints of Trap licks. Always Never Records writes:
It’s another indicator of Crywolf’s finesse at blending beautiful melodies and vocals with chilling builds and adrenaline-filled crashes. Each song tells a story, which reigns especially true in “Silence Pt II”. With a blend of influences and equally aching and lovely vocals from Charity Lane, the track takes listeners anywhere from deep inside themselves to dancing on the moon. Wherever it is you go, “Silence Pt II” will carry you there and leave you with goosebumps on your arms.
I also wanted to call your attention today to Major Lazer‘s newest track titled “Bumaye (Watch Out For This)” featuring Busy Signal (vocals), The Flexican & FS Green. This is an INFECTIOUS Moombahton track that was released last week as part of Major Lazer’s pre-order promotion for their new album Free the Universe which is expected to be released next month on April 16th (you can grab your pre-order copy on iTunes). When the track dropped around 1:10 I realized I had heard this song several times before, likely from watching Diplo and Major Lazer perform it live over the past couple months. The horns in this one truly blast you in the face and when you combine them with the exotic Moombahton beat there’s no way you won’t be dancing when you hear it. This track has origins dating back to 2005 when The Flexican remixed his own original production entitled “Bumaye.” Diplo heard the track and hooked up with The Flexican, co-producer FS Green and recruited Dancehall singer Busy Signal to drop vocals over the remake. The result is an island jam uniting Caribbean vibes with the modern dance floor and it’s poised to be one of the biggest tracks of Winter Music Conference/Miami Music Week which is just around the corner!
