Lets Get This Shit Started Riiiiiight...XXYYXX, Joker, ENiGMA Dubz, WEDIDIT and more
Alright in case your feeling like your young and on top of your game, here's a little something that'll knock you off that high horse. XXYYXX is a 16 yr old producer from Orlando, FL. If that isn't impressive enough from the get go, then you gotta listen to these tracks. These slow, sensual bangers reach far beyond what I ever thought possible for a kid who just made their way through puberty. Forget an awkward stage, this dude is putting together soulful, futuristic ballads one track after the next.
Here is this young talent's take on Usher's original. A slow percussive buildup to a dreamy break down and perfect vocal samples. Check it.
Climax - XXYXX
His new, self titled album is an even greater portrait of his unfathomable skill and attention to utmost detail. With all the respect I have for this kid noted, I can't give it away for free, but check out Northern Lights and buy the whole album for $1 here.

Joker has been one of my favorite producers for a long time and never really disappoints me. His newest release, "Skitta / I Think You Should Know" is set to drop in 6 days. The tracks are a great representation of his harmonious synth composition and unparallelled sub-bass. Unnnce. Cop the whole release when it drops next week here.
I Think You Should Know - Joker feat Newham Generals
Lazer Sword keeps killin it. Future funky bass music. Some serious late night groovin and moovin shiiit. Eerie synth work, energy shifting percussion and great sampling. Slammin'
Point of Return - Lazer Sword
Every time ENiGMA Dubz releases something I become more obsessed with his original and versatile sound. This track is as smooth as they come. He uses the Ray Charles "Georgia" sample to construct a gentle, yet powerful dance-floor groover. Great melody, perfect percussion. This is off his newest release, "Slave EP". Definitely worth picking up. Grab it here

I probably don't have to tell you this, but there are few better places to be young and live fast than in the heart of Los Angeles. In this insane city, a new era of multi-talented individuals are taking the industry by storm through every form of media imaginable. The "beats scene" involves a slew of instrumental hiphop producers who are becoming idolized by their unparallalled California supporters. LA is the epicenter for this infinitely expanding genre, with weekly showcases of the Brainfeeder and Friends of Friends artists.
At the center of this phenomenon resides a tight-nit crew of like-minded musicians and long time friends. The WEDIDIT Colective is comprised of some uber talented artists including, Shlohmo, Ground is lava, Jonwayne, and RL Grimes just to name a few. If you like the sound, make sure to keep up to date on everything these guys are putting out.
Here is a Salva remix of RL Grimes' Grapes Alla Vodka from his new Grapes EP. Hot fire. Shout out to Ned of Squeegie for this one.
