BassBuds | September 7, 2015

It’s Official, we only have 115 days until the end of the year. We have quickly moved into September, the Autumn season. So, the BassBuds team thought they would provide you with a great playlist for the week. Oh, and don’t forget that listening through your BassBuds (Advanced Technology)  earphones makes it sound a whole lot better.

 

Corene

Jahmene – Down For Love – <New Release>

Jahmene is definitely BACK! With this gospel ballad, Jahmene shows he hasn’t lost his spark since being out of the spotlight. The chorus resonates with the main message of the song which is to ‘fight for love’ possibly when the going gets tough. Jahmene rose to fame when he came 2nd to James Arthur on X-Factor, 2012. His first UK number one, Love Never Fails, another ballad was also an success for the 24 year old. We expect to see much more from Jahmene towards the end of the year. Yes, Vocals…..COME THROUGH!!

 Kwabs – Lay Back

Two words – British Gem! Kwabs has been in and out of the limlight for over 4 years and never fails to disappoint.  Lay Back is from his debut album Love & War which is out next week. Kwabs rolls with a dedicated band to produce these fulfilling hits. Kwabs will be touring a few European countries including Berlin & Munich in November. . Something you didn’t know about the 25 yr old, his song ‘Walk’ was used in the soundtrack of EA‘s video game FIFA 15

Dead Weather – Treat Me Like Your Mother

The rock supergroup featuring Jack White (formerly known as the front man) of The White Stripes, Alison Mosshart from the Kills & Dean Fertita from Queens of the Stone Age. Their first live performance together was in 2009. A surprising fact that we all didn’t know is Jack White is a co-owner of Jay Z’s streaming service. The song reached to number 8 in the US singles chart from their first album HoreHound. If you’re a rock head, check out their new song, ‘I Feel Love’ released on Tidal.

Here are some of our favourite musical choices from over the past week….Enjoy :)

 

Skrillex & Diplo feat Justin Bieber – Where Are Now

This is definitely something different for the young Justin Bieber but oh it is a BANGER!?! “Where Are Ü Now” is the second single from Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü, the debut studio album by EDM duo Jack Ü, known individually as Skrillex and Diplo on their respective labels OWSLA and Mad Decent. Of no surprise at all, the song has been reached worldwide success in just a short space of time.  Internationally, the song has peaked within the top ten of the charts in Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Sweden, New Zealand, Scotland and the United Kingdom, as well as the top twenty of the charts in the Czech Republic, Norway, the Netherlands, Slovakia. The video is pretty impressive with different artistic designs which includes love and peace signs. Some people have claimed to have seen Illuminati signs and quotes about George Bush but watch for yourselves.

Akelle Charles x Louise Rei x Haile – IN2

The musical genes must be very strong in the Charles family, Akelle Charles – brother of Angel actually sound similar to each other in this joint. The Morgan Keyz-directed music video sees a fitting West London block party with cameos from Angel himself & Donaeo. This hiphop/rnb tune no doubt exudes a feel good vibe, we could easily be listening to this in the park with friends or at a family BBQ. It’s the perfect collab for the Summer!

Meek Mill ft Nicki Minaj & Chris Brown – All Eyes on You

All Eyes on You” is a song by American hip hop recording artist Meek Mill, released as the first single from his second studio albumDreams Worth More Than Money, earlier in June. This collaboration was produced by by Alex Delicata, Danny Morris, and co-produced byThe Monarch, Kevin Cossom and DJ Khaled. The Nicki Minaj– and Chris Brown-assisted track is an anthem in the vein of Jay Z and Beyonce’s “’03 Bonnie & Clyde,” as rap’s current It Couple focus all their attention in on one another in what’s quickly become a romantically inclined fan-favorite.

Welcome back to another healthy portion of #MusicalMondays goodness….

Benjy – Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody

Taking it back a bit with this one. A 1970’s band with fronted by the infamous Freddie Mercury. Apparently, it was their most single to produce which consists of seven sections including; an operatic passage & hard rock section. It spent nine weeks on the UK singles chart and sold over one million copies worldwide. The full production took 3 weeks to record.  In 2004, “Bohemian Rhapsody” was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

 

Warren – Wale ft SZA – The Need to Know

Featured on Wale’s fourth studio album, ‘The Album About Nothing’. Released in March with exciting features from Usher, Jeremih, J Cole and SZA. The song is full of soulful rift tones from young American singer, SZA fairly new in the music industry. Sampling the hook to Musiq’s “Just Friends”with production hailing from JGramm Beats. We could imagine playing this on the BassBoomz at a picnic with friends.

Corene – Krept and Konan -Remix (Bennie Man, Jeremih & Popcaan)

The South London have just released their newest album on Itunes ‘ The Long Way Home’ with some massive US features including, Rick Ross, Emeli Sande, Rebecca Garton and YG to name a few. Freek of the Week originally featured Jeremih along with a hot sexy music video. Enabling their Caribbean roots,  in case you weren’t aware, the original beat is an interpolation of Beenie Man’s 90s hit, “Who Am I,” so he’s essentially adding another vocal to his own song. You certainly will be hearing this in the clubs all over the country.

BassBuds | June 29, 2015

Welcome back to our weekly schedule…….of Musical Mondays..

 

Benjy- Eurythmics – Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)

The British duo is formed of Annie Lennox & David A Stewart both previously from the band ‘The Tourists‘. The duo’s pop rock genre was a popular sound for the early 80’s. Sweet Dreams went on to be their most successful song from their 2nd album in 1983. The song reached no.2 on the UK singles chart becoming one of the year’s biggest sellers, and later topped the US charts. We can’t deny this is still a CLASSIC and can still be heard on radio all over the world and not too mention, one of the top choices for karaoke. Imagine yourself in the garden or spring cleaning to it! See…pure bliss right?!?

 

Warren – Fetty Wap – RGF Island

Willie Maxwell or as known as Fetty Wap, a rapper straight out of Paterson, New Jersey, US. Fetty is best known for his single ‘Trap Queen‘ which reached No.2 on the Billboard Hot 100. His name Fetty is slang for money and wap was added to pay tribute to his favourite rapper, Gucci Mane. Fetty has remix features from the likes of Drake, Natalie La Rose & Remy Ma. This certainly one for the hip hop heads and we reckon we’ll be hearing more from this guy over the next year or so. Pump this one loud in your BassBuds earphones and bang you head to the beat!

 

Corene – Jermaine Riley – The Cape Tape: Lost Sessions (PT.2)

 

Jermaine Riley is back on his solo stuff…..and we’re loving it!! He recently released the ‘Cape Tape‘ which is a mashup of slow and contemporary RnB.  He certainly returns with a BANG! This highly-anticipated 5th solo project features from Cherri V, Ghetts, Che Lingo, Shaun Riley, Terri Walker and Eric Bellinger. Riley started off last year with his pop duo, ‘Dora Martin‘ with Cherri Voncelle but both have taken a break to focus on solo projects.  We can’t deny Riley’s work ethic is solid and continues to produce good feel good songs. If you like Usher, then you will love Jermaine especially because he can dance! Yes ladies, he can pop a muscle or two. Summer is the perfect time to listen to this on full blast or even whilst your cooking! We promise you will not be disappointed with the results.

0 comments

BassBuds | May 28, 2015

Festival season is slowly dawning upon us and everything festival has us all talking from festival fashion, to epic line ups to the best tunes that get us in the mood to grab our bottle of Cider and rave in front of the stage. So as we are celebrating all things festival orientated we thought it was only right for us to share with you the tunes that take us right where we need to be and get us in that summery party mood! Take a look and let the music carry you!

 

3LAU & Nom de Strip feat Estelle – The Night

 

Festivals are the hottest spot to catch all the EDM heads with the dance stages being the most electric, invigorating, vibrant stages to watch at any festival! We love it, it’s the first place we find ourselves at to get that burst of energy and excitement for the day before we head off to see our favourite headliners. 3LAU & Nom de Sprit worked their musical genius to team up with Estelle to get you amped up for any festival you’re at! This is definitely one of our summer bangers!

 

Ella Eyre – Together

 

Ella is the songstress of the moments and her vibrant, powerful vocals get us so powered up for the festival season! Together has us in the mood to just get up and dance our life away! This tune was released in April and is already sitting on a hefty 1 million views already and after having this on replay this morning we definitely know why! Ella herself is performing at Parklife, Glastonbury, Lovebox AND Bestival this year all to name a few! The excitement of getting intoxicated by the music overtakes us! We cannot wait!!

 

Nick Jonas – Years and Years

Yes, we must admit that we have started falling in love Nick Jonas recently! Oh how he’s grown on us and we love the products of the growth. His cover of Years and Years keeps us in a smooth, vibrant mood perfect for a summer’s day! It gets you in the perfect state of mind to hear brilliant live music!

 

Skepta – Shutdown

 

Now we couldn’t compile this list without having Skepta in here! After the success of Shutdown and the rise of the Grime scene, the Grime heads are celebrating Grime’s great comeback! The tune will get you in the perfect hyped up festival mood and to be honest, whilst everyone around you is jumping around shouting the lyrics, you’ll feel like part of the most ultimate clique!

 

LunchMoney Lewis – Bills

 

Can you take a wild guess why this is so popular at the moment? It’s such a catchy song that almost all of us can relate to! It’s the song that we’ll play the weeks leading up to our festival extravaganza! It the song that we’ll have a little chuckle to before and after our favourite festivals to get us excited for the summer weekends and inspired for the summer weeks!

 

Clean Bandit – Stronger

 

So Clean Bandit are at it again with this funky dance track! I mean aren’t they just great at creating the most epic summer music! The video itself just represents summer fun and we can’t actually get enough of it! Imagine putting this one as you’re getting dressed and ready for a festival, this will have you moving and dancing all the way to the stage! It features the perfect vocals of Alex Newell and Sean Bass, who get us all sorts of excited! The tune was released late last year but re-released as a single last month and is still moving in the charts which is a good sign! It’s going to be about for a while, and we are not complaining.

 

Pia Mia feat Chris Brown and Tyga- Do It Again

 

This pop- rap/R’n’b collaboration is the perfect song to listen to in the sunshine! Just imagine yourself with your convertible top down, driving to your favourite festival with your mates ! Pia herself is a face of summer as she has recently become the actual face of Boohoo clothing in their most recent campaign! Her tune is now available to download and we definitely have! Pia is about to be the songstress of the summer so don’t sleep on her !

 

OMI –Cheerleader (Felix Jaehn Remix)

 

Now this this is the ultimate summer banger right now and has been comfortably been sitting in the number one spot for the last four weeks! Now originally Omi released this tune last year, however, after a bit of tweaking, Felix Jaehn managed to make this tropical hit a huge festival hit! Hence why we can hear it belting out of every popular music platform we can think of, but we’re not complaining, any tune that has us dreaming of dancing on a beach is a tune that we welcome with open arms… now how to make that dream a reality..

 

Skrillex and Diplo feat Justin Bieber – Where are U Now

 

Team up the biggest names in dance and EDM and put them with the one of the biggest names in mainstream pop and what do you think you get? Only the most ultimate dance banger of the year! This song is sitting in it’s thrown of the number one spot in the Official Dance charts! This tune has us moving in trance to the hottest beat! And it’s what we expect of the legends that are Diplo and Skrillex! You know summer is the hypest season for dance music so we can’t wait for what more is to come!

 

Galantis – Runaway (U & I)

 

Now as EDM is taking us far and beyond this year, we have to take advantage of the hits that have been gracing us this festival season . This is just another tune that has the dance scene ready to break into a sweat this season . This tune has given the Swedish duo international success. The song shot to the top of Spotify’s Global and US Viral charts and became a Top 10 Spotify track in the Netherlands, Belgium and Finland. In America, the track peaked at number 1 on the Billboard Twitter Emerging Artists chart . Now you can here it played at every dance stage at every festival, it just pumps you into the right mood!

 

As you can see we are about to get you fully prepared to party this festival season with the latest fashion, tunes and updates! We are more than excited about the multiple festivals coming up this summer so with that we are about to get you set for every aspect of this summer of music! Keep your eyes peeled!

BassBuds | May 26, 2015

This is our second long weekend in the month and it has so far made May the best month of the year! So with a relaxing ( or incredibly active) weekend giving us the best start to the week ever, we have some great music choices this week to push that mood into overdrive and start making your dreams happen! Ready, Get Set, GO!

 

Corene – Ariana Grande – Be My Baby

 

Okay, so we have to admit that Ariana has fully grown on us and now she is creating bangers that we can’t stop replaying in the office. This up-tempo tune gives us life on the first day of the working week! This tune has come off the Arianna’s second album My Everything album which she released in August last year. The tune itself was recorded with Norwegian DJ Cashmere Cat in February last year and released the following August. Now here’s a lil information for those that may not be up to date with the goings on of ‘Grande world’… Ariana is soon to be touring in the UK next month. You can catch her performing in London on both the 1st and the 6th of June. Now if that isn’t the best start to the festival season then I don’t know what is!

 

 

Warren – DJ Khaled – How Many Times

 

Right now, DJ Khaled is known for the great collaborations  and this again shows us what he is renowned for. This is the perfect banger that we can assure you is going pop off in the clubs over this summer and we are definitely excited to hear it when it does! With Chris Brown, Lil Wayne and Big Sean all featuring on the tune, you know this tune is going to be a huge summer hit! The tune was released on May 12th and is available for download on iTunes. Now here’s a bit of gossip for you! We all know DJ Khaled as being part of Young Money Cash, but not anymore! Khaled himself revealed earlier this month that he has parted ways with Cash Money Records. He still regards them as his family but who knows what happened… we’ll just let the music tell us the story.

 

 

Benjy- Mark Ronson – Uptown Funk ft Bruno Mars

 

Yes, this tune is currently charting and it is no surprise! No song will get you moving this week like Uptown Funk especially when it includes the likes of Bruno Mars, who, may we just say, is perfectly suited for this tune! No one represents new school funk the way Bruno does! Mark Ronson represents the very best of Great British talent and together with Bruno’s vocals we can understand why this is such an international hit. Uptown Funk can be found on Ronson’s fourth studio album and was released late last year. Since it’s release single has found commercial success, spending fourteen weeks at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100, seven weeks at number one on the UK Singles Chart, and topped the charts in several other countries including Australia, Canada, France, Ireland and New Zealand. Uptown Funk has also set a new record for the highest number of streams in one week in the US, with 4.8 million streams and worldwide, the song has sold an estimate of 10 million copies, becoming one of the best selling singles internationally whilst earlier this year Uptown Funk won Ronson the a Brit Award for the British Single of the Year.

 

Tia- Iggy Azelea- Trouble ft Jennifer Hudson

 

 

Trouble is the latest tune by Australian rapper, Iggy Azelea and we are so so so sold on this tune! With the soulful tones of Jennifer Hudson accompanying Iggy’s powerful feminine flow, this is the perfect tune to switch on to on the first day of the working week! Trouble comes off Iggy’s debut album ReClassified, it was released in February this year and since then it has grown from strength to strength receiving commercial success, reaching the top ten in Australia and the UK and top twenty in Ireland. For all our Iggy fans she has out done herself after this song as she now has a new tune with the teen legend, which is Britney Spears! Iggy is giving us all sorts of reasons to be excited recently!

 

With all these upbeat sounds, we have everything we need to put some Boom in your Room and have you ready for the week to come! Now what’s the best way to get some mega boom in your room? With some BassBoomz of course and with Father’s Day coming up they are the perfect gift to get your Wise One on his special day! So take a little trip down to www.bassbuds.co.uk and see what little treat you can get your Pops!

 

Happy family having a barbecue in summer; father stands next to

Corene – OMI – Cheerleader (Felix Jaehn Remix)

 

 

This tune is blasting out of our radios and tv’s on every popular music channel and is even currently sitting comfortably in the no.1 spot on the Official Singles Chart and we know exactly why! With it’s brilliant tropical beat, this is our favourite summer song at the moment and has a tempo that has us moving our waist and hips throughout the house whilst getting ourselves prepared for the week ahead on a Monday morning . And, of course you can’t miss the wonderful sax that just soothes the beat in the background, a perfect tune to plug your BassBoomz into to get that Bassy, Booming start to your week. Now for those that didn’t know, Jamaican artist, Omi originally released this song in 2012 however last year the song was remixed by German DJ and music producer Felix Jaehn and was then released by Sony Music as “Cheerleader” (Felix Jaehn Remix). The remix went on to become a number-one hit in Australia, Austria, Belgium (Flanders and Wallonia), Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland and is now holding the top spot in the UK. This is one hell of a summery hit, we have a feeling this tune will most definitely be around for a while.

 

Benjy-    Maroon 5 – Sugar

 

 

This fun upbeat tune is just what we need to make us feel good on a Monday! From the video to the lyrics everything about this song makes us smile. With a video that depicts the team going from wedding to wedding to perform to devout fans that happen to be getting married, this is a tune that that will make you smile no end! This tune comes off the band’s fifth album V as the third single from the album and a remix of the song, featuring Nicki Minaj was released in March 10 via iTunes. The tune peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 and became the band’s third top 10 single from V, and eighth consecutive top 10 hit. The song is also used as the encore of the shows during the Maroon 5 World Tour 2015 which will be running until October this year. The tune is now sitting at number 13 on the Official Singles Chart and we have a feeling its going to remain there for a good time yet!

 

Warren – Chinx Drugz – Wild Ones

 

 

At BassBuds we love great Hip Hop so in our Musical Mondays this week, we had to pay homage to a great US Rapper who left the rap scene in shock yesterday after his sudden passing. For those that don’t know Chinx, he was a talented rapper that had the rap scene in the US singing his praises for his creativity and his flow. Chinx was a rapper who brought out raw talent from Queens, New York and made no mistake to hide his origins. He was a member of French Montana’s Boys record label, alongside Cheeze, Flip, and Lil DurkHe was best known for his appearances on the Coke Boys mixtapes and the Cocaine Riot mixtape series. His music had many a club banging with excitement the moment the DJ dropped the beat and his music will be remembered for the hot vibe it brings in it.

 

Tia – Meghan Trainor – Dear Future Husband

 

 

We love us a bit of Meghan Trainor everyday, she’s like a dose of musical happiness that we can’t get enough of! We’re so proud of her grown thus far and can’t wait for her to give us more and more happy tunes for us to move and groove to! As for this tune, this comes off Meghan’s debut album (which we absolutely love!) It first appeared on Meghans EP, Title (2014)and was released by Epic Records on March this year, as her third single. It is Trainor’s third consecutive single to reach the top ten in South Africa and Australia, reaching numbers four and nine respectively. The single has reached number 16 in the United States, becoming Trainor’s third consecutive top twenty hit there and is definitely everyone’s favorite being performed as the opening number of Trainor’s That Bass Tour.

 

Mat – Kygo – Firestone ft Conrad Sewell

 

 

This is a tune is the first single by Norwegian DJ and record producer Kygo featuring vocals from Australian singer Condrad Sewell. It was originally released in December 2014, and the single reached number one on VG-Lista, the official Norwegian Singles Chart and became a big international hit for Kygo on many other charts. He is best known for his remix of the track “I See Fire’ by Ed Sherran which has been played 28.2 million times on Soundcloud and around 42 million times on YouTube. Kygo has accumulated over 200 million views on his music on Soundcloud and YouTube so he has taken the digital world by storm , we can’t wait for what more he has to show us!

 

So with the sun coming out now, time to get the music pumping and your spirits flowing. Plug in your BassBuds and start living your own little summery music video in real life! Pick a theme tune for your life and let it give you life everyday, and of course.. don’t forget to work it in style! Now how better to listen to music in style the through your BassBuds! Pop down to our website and check them out! We promise you’ll love them!
