Beats & Pieces Vol. IX

It's that time of the week! Welcome back to our ninth edition of Beats & Pieces, curated this week by Fadi AbuZaineh. This time around I'd like to show you 5 pieces of music that have been going through my ears all week. Some are new and some are not as new, but that does not make them any less significant right? Okay let's get right to it then:

1. Giraffage - Better Off Alone

Rising San Francisco producer Giraffage's rendition of Alice DeeJay's now classic electronic hit Better Off Alone is beautifully crafted. The slower tempo and change of key hits you right in the feels, while the vocal chopping and sampling is weird and interesting. This tune was released 2 years ago now, but every time it comes on I have to respect it by giving it a full play. The best part about it is that it's a free download, so go add this gem to your collection if you haven't already!

2. A.F.A - Take Me To LA (Mix)

I know when I make trips out to the big city, I need some nice chill tunes to get me through the perilous drive through LA traffic (it's really not a joke). A.F.A is a local DJ living in the luxurious hills of LA, and he put together a soothing and funky deep house mix titled "Take Me To LA." After listening to it I knew that I found a new mix to play in the car, and when I just want to relax. This mix was recorded live on CDJ's and uploaded for your listening pleasure. Just hit play and let the music take you LA.

3. Drezo - Guap

This monster track is another free release from the one and only Drezo. He takes elements of G-House and throws in some super deep and electro-like sound design to create a dark, hyphy and almost daunting club banger. The drop delivers an onslaught of thumpy kicks and some serious wub. A must listen for any fan of UK garage style house!

4. Alex Metric - Drum Machine ft. The New Sins

Alex Metric has outdone himself with this single from his new EP Ammunition Pt. 4. After his release with Oliver Hope gained massive amounts of plays, I was excited to see what he had coming up next and this surely exceeded my expectations. Drum Machine is sort of anthem-like in its own way, starting with a catchy hook line leading up to a deep and bass-y drop similar to that of what Shiba San would make. I would not be surprised to hear this at an upcoming festival or big club night.

5. Sub Focus - Tidal Wave ft. Alpines

Taking it back again now with this timeless tune by bass guru Sub Focus. I threw this in here just because it came up on my shuffle the other day and I have played it many times since then. I was even wondering why it's been so long since I've listened to it. Fun fact: I actually went to my first rave ever back in 2013 because I saw Sub Focus on the lineup and knew it was going to be a good time. So I guess you can say that this song played a huge part in getting me to experience raves and rave culture in the best way possible, through love of music.


Hope you guys enjoyed my picks of the week, see you next time!
