deadmau5 (2006-2009)

I still remember the first time I listened to a deadmau5 song. I was nearing the end of 11th grade, and I had developed a passion for electronic/house music during that year. GTA IV had just come out (a Playstation/Xbox game, in case you don’t know), and I was glorying in the stunningly lifelike graphics and the flawless digital recreation of New York City. So of course, I did what any self-respecting teenager does when presented with a GTA game, I was speeding up and down Algonquin (a.k.a. Manhattan) killing as many pedestrians as I could. I put on the game’s electronic radio station, and an incredibly laidback melody was floating through, backed up by a dependable, light beat and slightly whimsical synthetic tones. Freakin’ incredible, I remember thinking.

So I flipped open the game’s instruction catalog, and near the back was the list of every song on every radio station in the game. I hit up Limewire (ah those were the days) to download it, and found it within a few minutes. “No Pressure” by One + One, remixed by deadmau5. Seven minutes and forty seconds of pure ecstasy.

Bonobo

Please let me introduce you to the king of downtempo, Bonobo, just in case you haven’t already witnessed his genius on Black Sands (which I find to be the best album of 2010). The album’s sequel Black Sands Remixed just came out last month. Now before you say “Oh, It’s just another lame remix album”, watch the video above and listen to the mix he posted on Soundcloud. If you’re still not convinced that he’s the king of downtempo, you can come to my house and beat me. Seriously.

Yelawolf

I’d classify Yelawolf in the same vein as MGK. He’s a choppy rapper, who’s known for his quick yet calculated flow. Check these out:

Also, “Box Chevy” is one of the best atmosphere generating songs around, if it’s loud enough – people will shut up.

Slaughterhouse

After featuring on the Joe Budden song “Slaughterhouse,” Crooked I, Joe Budden, Royce Da 5″9′ and Joell Ortiz decided to band together to form the rap supergroup of the same name.

Their self-titled album released on Shady Interscope is unreal, and these are my two favourite tracks. I know you’ll enjoy them.
