MARTIN GARRIX (FEAT. JUSTIN MYLO & MESTO) – BOUNCYBOB
Martin Garrix is kicking off 2016 the way he left 2015 behind by getting his fans bumping and shuffling along to his own music. The DJ gives us all a glance at what he has to offer this upcoming year with a free download spread across multiple media platforms this week of his new track entitled ‘Bouncybob’.
The Dutch sensation has teamed up with fellow producers/DJs Justin Mylo & Mesto to produce a progressive dance track filled with snared styled drops. This song has left fans spamming the refresh button with already over 450,000 views on YouTube.

ARCA – URCHIN
Given Arca‘s second album Mutant was only released a little over a month ago, the guess is this freebie is one of the tracks that didn’t make the cut.
Slightly less volatile than the majority of the LP, ‘Urchin’ finds the Venezuelan producer once again cultivating a crisp, airy wonderland, only to stain it with coarse industrial pollutants and paranoid neurological tics.
Not so much a progressive exploration then, but a reminder that Arca’s signature sound always delivers.

FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE – THE FOOL
‘The Fool’ is Italian technical death metal band, Fleshgod Apocalyse’s, latest track which comes off their upcoming album, KING. ‘The Fool’ is a piece of tech death goodness that shows there are good things to come with the band’s new album.
It’s not as heavier as their previous material, but it still has impact and packs the punch with powerful growls, intense breakdowns and stunning guitar. The song contains enticing gothic orchestral element to it, especially with the core, and a haunting piano riff really suits their style of death metal.
Ultimately, this is a very strong back Fleshgod Apocalypse and shows how much the band has matured over the years.
KANYE WEST – FACTS
At this point, Kanye West could easily put out a bad record or single and it wouldn’t affect his career in the slightest, yet he never fails to put out gold.
The fact he’s able to be influenced by artists who wouldn’t have a career if it weren’t for his foundation building is commendable too, the Drake-like flow undeniable and not a pace Kanye has touched for quite some time, yet he nails it and keeps running with it.
The instrumental is a straight up mixture of Drake’s Nothing Was The Same, yet with those slender bass tones from Yeezus. Bring on the new record.
