5 Tunes That Changed My Life: Party Thieves
5 Tunes That Changed My Life: Party Thieves

We ask some of bass music’s finest to choose five tunes from any era, any genre, and any period of their lives that have not only inspired or influenced them but changed their lives in some way.


Obviously I’m on the bass side of the music industry, but I tip my hat to Steve Angello. He presents music in such a beautiful way.


Mt. Eden Dubstep ft. Freshly Ground “Sierra Leone(Ultra, 2013)
This is the first electronic music song I ever heard in 2012, courtesy of my college roommate at West Point Military Academy!

Steve Angello & Matisse & Sadko “SLVR” (Spinnin’, 2013)
During my time discovering electronic music in 2012-2013 I didn’t really know what I was listening to, but I loved it. I actually fell in love with house music first, specifically Steve Angello. This track was by far my favorite house tune at the time. Obviously I’m on the bass side of the music industry, but I tip my hat to Steve. He is an artist [and] everything he touches, from the artwork to the track, is always elegant. He presents music in such a beautiful way.

Martin Garrix & Jay Hardway “Wizard” (Nth Wonder x HLTR$KLTR Remix)
2012 and 2013 were the years of festival trap, and also the year I discovered EDM. This festival trap edit was the first one I ever came across by accident. This track literally inspired me to start trying my hand at festival trap in late 2013 when the Party Thieves project was started.

Denzel Curry ft. Yung Simmie & Robb Bank$ “Threatz“ (Ekali & Gravez Remix)
This was my favorite record to listen to in 2015. Everything about this track, from the vocals to the snare, is 100% perfect. I think songs like this are timeless. Best drums in a track ever.

Martin $ky “Self”
Listening to hip-hop productions really influences how I produce trap-style music. The lyrics behind any hip-hop tune reach me as well. “Self” revolves around the concept of team but also how it’s okay to be selfish to accomplish your goals and just to continually always grind for want you want.
