Grenier is having a prolific year, from solo outings and remixes, to his lauded album with NY’s Archie Pelago trio. A few months ago he and Petey Clicks (of Clicks & Whistles,) were featured in a Thump video, and the alluded to a collaborative project. The past few months have seen Petey Clicks writing a fair bit of bassline house for Party Like Us Records, and Grenier has been exploring various tempos, but both have extensive backgrounds in bass focused styles (I highly recommend Grenier’s series of VOID albums). The details of the project have surfaced, their project is named Nevermind, and the depth of material sounds immense, a melting pot of grime, techno, house, and bass.

The first official release is on Trouble & Bass at the end of this month, with at least two more EPs and a mixtape to follow, plus they are touting eight bootlegs to be given away for free. Preview the first EP here:

Nothing really makes my day like new Sammy Bananas. The New York-based DJ and producer has just dropped a new mix entitled Peach Mix, and we couldn’t ask to a more perfect start to the weekend. Bananas is unparalleled when it comes to funkiness and good times as demonstrated by his ‘Flexin’ Ep,’ which we’re still bumping weekly around DC. His Djing is no different. Seamlessly jumping between house, disco, bass, and everywhere in between, Sammy B. weaves a lush tapestry of summer sounds and irresistible grooves that makes for the new soundtrack to your July. Take a listen below and get down:

DC/LA producer and DJ, Tittsworth, just teamed up with a hip hop dream team for his latest track. “After The Dance” features Q-Tip, Theophilus London & DC vocalist, Alison Carney, for a laid back dance groove perfect for summer nights. The track feels as slick as an old school hip hop track wrapped up in an instantly addicting future funk of washed out synths and shuffling percussion. We’ve had this on repeat all week. It’s also up as a free download so make sure to grab it now:

Washington D.C.’s own Canine Teeth has a slithering ballad called “Shape Up” featuring Brandon Moses. Slow, seductive, dark…just the way I like it. This is the type of track where your mouth, wrists and ankles are duck-taped and you’re dragged along through the artist’s rumbling melodic forest. Along the ride are hallucinogenic whispers and echoes. Sins are given a green light on this adventure, so embrace:

New DC-based producer, Devaughn Banville, just dropped the initial track from his forthcoming Penance E.P. The song starts with a heavy bass groove that could just as easily lead to a pounding techno stomper, but quickly opens to a lush sound scape of warm synth swells and hazy, retro-tinged leads interrupted by breaks of bell arpeggios. There’s a ruthless tech house feel here that’s really nicely balanced by a late night summer vibe and soulful vocals. Take a listen below:
