We’ve put together some of our favorite tunes from Discovery Project alumni for you. We do this regularly, so keep checking in with the Alumni Tracks You Should Know series to see the latest and greatest from our Discovery Project artists.
GTA ft. Vince Staples “Little Bit of This” (Jace Mek Remix)
Jace Mek’s fiercely unique style is taking him straight to the top of the game. His remix for GTA gets to the heart of the duo’s “Fuck Genres” ethos, offering up an oddball call-and-response between the squeaks and growls of the topline and the bass. His minimal approach allows for a bouncy groove to evolve stunningly in perfect time with Vince Staples’ cheeky vocals.
Kayzo x Gammer “Frequency” (Kayoh Remix)
Kayzo and Gammer’s trap and hardcore hybrid has been given a serious re-rack from bass music madman Kayoh. Keeping with the groove of the gorgeous intro that’s laid out in the original, Kayoh has extended the uplifting vibes and laced them with his own thumpin’ drum beat. With just a few accents to the synthline, he breathes new emotional life into a tune that is already heavy on the feels.
Discovery Project OGs come correct once again with this slice of head-thumping trap. The heady atmosphere in the intro—accented by bird chirps, blissful arpeggios, slithering horns and jazzy stabs—dives straight into some serious dirt, set off by a sultry, sweet vocal sample. With a new variation on the nasty bassline jumping off at every turn, the boys are taking the listener on one intense journey.
Tchami and Maala “Prophecy” (Drezo Remix)
There seem to be innumerous remixes of “Prophecy” kicking around these days, so when you come across one that really puts a fresh spin on such a repurposed tune, it definitely stands out. Drezo’s mastery of rich and energetic basslines is on full display here. However, it’s his edit that really pushes this tune forward with a bounty of funky, head-turning stutters and stops that add a huge amount of depth and character to the remix.
Landis ft. Davis Mallory “Loud”
With so much music at our fingertips, it’s tough to find things that are truly memorable. Davis Mallory’s vocal adds that element to this feel-good, garage-tinged tune from emerging heavyweight Landis. The combination of bouncy vocal chops and Landis’ flittering bassline is easy on the ears and will undoubtedly put a smile on your face. This one has “summer jam” written all over it.
