We’re back with Volume 111 and it is a beauty. Hopefully you all found other places to find and enjoy new tunes over the past month. This weeks mix features a mesmerizing track from a up-and-coming artist that makes his AHM debut. The collection also features a summer anthem from D-WHY, a fresh cut from the Arts & Crafts camp, some sexy from PND and The Weeknd, Lil Wayne snapping on his latest single, another Sango/Soulection takeover, Mac Miller with ScHoolboy Q, Mobb Deep with Ghostface Killah Usher with Juicy J, Jeezy with Jay Z, and more.
me and 40 back to work but we still smell like a vacation
Hola señors y señoritas, first off I want to apologize to you and your music libraries for the absence. As I was moving homes, the tool that pieces together these mixes was in solitary confinement for an extended amount of time. The move was then followed by a short vacation that included a complete disconnect from most technology. That being said, catching up on a few weeks of music is one of the enjoyments I looked forward to most. So here we are at Volume 109, that comes in two parts; regular edition (a handful of my favourites from the past few weeks), and extended edition (everything I’ve tuned into lately).
I am pleased to announced AHM’s first official song premiere, in partner with Fourth Quarter Publishing.
Estefan Saucedo (18), who goes by Stevee Grande on the stage, grew up in Mexico and began with the plucking of strings at the age of six. Classical guitar quickly became his forte, a skill that landed him in competitions around town. After relocating to the United States for high school, rock ‘n’ roll quickly became something his ears lusted after. Metal being one of the key genres that struck a nerve. After finally falling in love with electronic music, Logic 9 and Traktor were quickly scribbled on to the shopping list. From there; the inner genius and uncanny creativity took over.
Grande’s passion for EDM strives on the aspect that he can combine elements from all the musical influences in his life, and have still have that synergy under one roof. He described the drop in his latest single as being specifically derived from heavy metal. It’s safe to say I didn’t quite get it until I heard the track for myself. “Til The World Ends” has this dark, grungy vibe, with an underlying mellow feel, an adjective Grande used to describe Mexican rock. His plans for the second single include some of those softer, more mellow sounds. Stevee plans to stay busy with touring, and when I asked him about connections thus far, he casually mentioned Nicky Romero gave him some notes on his music.
