Launchpad: Achieve weekend nirvana with this eclectic playlist

Item Image

Launchpad is a playlist series showcasing music we love, hand selected by our staff. The tracks come from both emerging and mainstream artists; it’s all about the quality and the unexpected. If you’d like your music featured in Launchpad, submit it for consideration here.

This one’s got a little bit of everything. Electronic music, particularly the heavy-hitting, dark kind, can come in many forms, and this playlist touches on a lot of them. There’s electro, grime, deep house, trap, and more. But you can be sure that pressing play will take you into a zone that only this strain of heavy hitting electronic can. Put it on at the tailgate, the pre-party, or even while you study. Just don’t be surprised if you end up hyped.

DA Launchpad Selects:

While we’re pretty sure there’s no relation to Beyonce, Shanica Knowles’ vocals are a perfect complement to to the longing, epic odyssey-style production of Adam Davenport. Marat Leon’s “My Return Address Is You” remix starts with a singular focus on the siren-esque vocals, and steadily builds to a fever pitch through a drumline-style driving beat that leads into a electro-infused breakdown.

Mikey Ceaser – “Carried Away (prod. by Grabbitz & Ray Volpe)”
We’re all about the cross-genre collaborations, and the Grabbitz and Ray Volpe production on “Carried Away” feels like the ideal platform for hip hop artist Mikey Ceaser to jump on. The build in tempo is backed up by an increasingly frenetic verse delivery from Ceaser leading to  an “I-smell-something-funky” drop that will have you wanting to either start a mosh-pit or be doing 90 on the highway on a motorcycle. Guaranteed.
