Blk Tea – For You and Sophie Bipp (Remix) Blk Tea is a recently formed group of producers from Southern California that I am proud to be associated with. Over the past few months we have been creating music non-stop – and today is the official release day for our first two songs. A lot of work has gone into this music and I’m excited to share our new projects with you. The first song is called “For You.” It is a hybrid remix of both “The Glow of Love” by Change ft. Luther Vandross – and “All for You” by Janet Jackson. The song is a midtempo filtered hip hop track that we hope would be a good addition to your summertime playlist.

Next is the remix we did of Sophie’s song “Bipp“. The original song is uptempo and pitched up. We took original, slowed and pitched the samples down, and used them to create a chilled out hip hop remix. Give them a listen! You can find the downloadable mp3′s here Blk Tea on Soundcloud.

Martin Garrix In The Studio With Future Music

The music production process can sometimes seem like a mysterious process full of guarded industry secrets. In reality it isn’t – and today you can find all sorts of useful information around the web if you’re willing to do some digging. In this case, Future Music recently did another great interview – this time it was with Martin Garrix, the producer of “Animals.” Future Music does a great job getting to well known producers and uncovering their techniques – and if you’re into production, this is worth a view. Garrix talks about his process for creating the sounds and arrangement in Animals and reveals the software he uses. To be specific, the DAW he uses is FL Studio – his go to Synth is Sylenth, and he uses Izotope Ozone on his master bus.

Trippy Turtle – Wet

Here’s a recently released song by Trippy Turtle. His fusion of early 2000′s R&B with Jersey Club create a truly distinctive sound. Trippy Turtle is definitely onto something here – and as festival EDM and Trap continue to dominate the radio and club scene, it’s nice to hear dance music created with a different approach. Time will tell if and when traditional R&B will once again dominate the airwaves – but I’m willing to bet that if it does there will be a new production mashup approach.
