When it comes to producing, I’m not sure if anyone can currently touch Calvin Harris. Dude is that talented. His ability to make hit after hit and produce mainstream music that is not only tolerable but really well made is something I marvel at time and time again. Today the superstar DJ/producer dropped a huge announcement regarding his next project.
Pretty self explanatory. As you can see from the image above, there’s a video in the tweet that name drops all of the features on the album and the cast is absolutely star studded. Frank Ocean. Travis Scott. Kehlani. Pharrell. Katy Perry. Big Sean. John Legend. Migos. Schoolboy Q. Ariana Grande. Young Thug. D.R.A.M. Nicki Minaj. Lil Yachty. Jessie Reyez. PARTYNEXTDOOR. Snoop Dogg. Not to mention Future and Khalid who’s track can be heard as the minute and thirty four second clip plays.
Speaking of the clip, just that little snippet makes me on the verge of physically being unable to contain myself from waiting until June 30th. I need to drop what I’m doing and throw on a clean white short sleeved button down, some shades, hit a rooftop bar and grab a couple of mimosas and just enjoy life. You know what? Screw blogging. I think I’m going to take my credit card and get myself a villa on a private island and never come back to the states until collections literally comes and drags me home like David Dao.
As I mentioned before, I think Calvin Harris is one of the most talented people when it comes to making good music. The fact that he’s working with such a diverse group of artists who each possess very different styles and sounds and producing (what I’m banking on will be) high quality music is a feat few can pull off. Get ready for Summer, Calvin Harris’ new album is dropping June 30th.
To be completely honest I’ve never heard of artists Snavs or Fabian Mazur. But, my ears are just begging me to listen to their gut feeling that these two producers have an impending monster on their hands with their latest track ‘Wolves’. Wolves is that track you’re going to get sick of because something like the X Games is going to use it to show some dude flying thru the air upside down before every single commercial break. I could also see this one being used to introduce “an all new sleek, sexy gadget in shiny matte black or space gray or whatever gimmicky term is used nowadays to make something sound cool”. Whatever the case may be, this is an undoubtedly fresh track with real potential to become a universal hit. Check the preview below:
Dillon fucking Francis man. Gotta love him, in a genre where so many people wear and say the same exact things, Francis keeps it fresh and has a lot of fun with it. Well, in his newest music video for his track ‘Not Butter’ he might even have a little too much fun. Check the video below:
WOAH! This video really took me back, exactly like the parties we used to have in college. Pure sex, literally. This exact video happened like 4 times a week in my frat house, nbd. But for real it’s great and refreshing to see Francis poking some fun at the overly cliche and expected themes of the genre. Everything’s jump! and party! and hot girls! This video nails it and pretty much mocks how absurd some of it gets. Well played, Dillon Francis. Might be the most raunchy thing I’ve seen since the infamous ‘Tip Drill’ porno/ music video. If you don’t know what that is then that just means your parents did a way better job of raising you than the rest of us. I’ll just leave that here too, don’t say Gratzfeed never taught you anything.
