A few months ago we covered a short preview teased by Dillon Francis of his collaboration with TSIS favorite Norwegian producer Kygo. Two of the biggest names in electronic music right now have worked with singer James Hersey on something special. The latest and most extensive preview we get of the song is a fan-recorded video at Kygo's biggest headline show to date in his home country of Norway in Oslo at the epic Spektrum venue.
The video gives us a quality taste of the collaboration, and we hear the sunny tropical sounds that Kygo is known for, but we also hear Dillon's hand in the drawn out synths and heavier bass influence we have never seen Kygo experiment with. Since the track is dipped into a live mix we've got to settle for just two minutes of the edit. Check out the video below and we'll keep you posted as news of an official release on Kygo's highly anticipated debut album set for 2015 comes out.
Also don't miss Kygo's debut original single "Firestone" which has been on regular rotation since it released at the beginning of the month.
New York based singer/songwriter Bebe Rexha has written for an endless list of massive artists and also released her debut single as a solo artist earlier this year with “I Can’t Stop Drinking About You” which also saw an unreal remix from The Chainsmokers. Well today we have the latest single from Bebe with “I’m Gonna Show You Crazy” featuring some electronic focused production from Jon Levine. The song has hints of indie influence yet Bebe’s pop background shines through with the catchy verses. We are excited to premiere this song which you can listen to in full below and don't forget to pick up your copy on Dec 23rd. Enjoy!

Australia is in no short supply of talent, having turned out artists ranging from Chet Faker, to Flight Facilities, Flume, Wave Racer and so many more. Today we have a debut from another down under producer. Shawn Naderi, aka Naderi, shares a studio with the trend setter Flume, having helped him with audio engineering in the past, has until now remained behind the scenes. This evasive producer has been collaborating with some of Australia's biggest acts, and is now coming out to release music of his own.
This mysterious, Iranian-born producer has relocated to the musically innovative land of Australia in an effort to pursue his career of passion. Described as a studio work-horse and perfectionist, Naderi is no stranger to Australian electronic music; he has worked alongside many producers as an audio engineer to facilitate the artists' vision and incorporate his breathtaking sound into others' music. Gearing up for the new year, Naderi delivers his debut solo release with the remix of fellow Australian Kilter’s pleasant tune “Coward.” This remix displays elements of future bass as shuffled horns accompany a graceful trapstyle drop filled with Ngaiire’s glitched vocals making for an infectious tune. This impressive remix serves as an incredibly strong debut from the What So Not collaborator who has just begun to come out of the shadows. Stream the remix below and grab a free download thanks to Naderi. Enjoy!

Lido continues to prove why he is one of the most creative producers in the game by dropping yet another new track before the end of the year. He completely re-imagines the pop song “Why I’m Single” by Alli Simpson and turns it into a high speed extra bouncy signature sounding creation you won’t be able to stop replaying. The song captures his trap inspired drums, some heavily pitched vocals, his signature synth sounds all delivered in a much faster pace we are used to hearing from Lido. There’s no details on if a download will ever turn up for this, but you can abuse replying it in the mean time. Enjoy!

Anton Zaslavski aka "Zedd", the German producer who became an international star in 2013 thanks to his Clarity album which won a grammy for the album's lead single "Clarity" featuring Foxes. He set out on a year long Clarity Tour in support of the album and brought out a show no one would forget. Anyone who was lucky enough to catch a date of the tour was treated to a custom light and laser production setup that could light up a stadium, yet was brought to venues that were much smaller for an epic experience.
This 30 minute long documentary really captures the journey, from Zedd personally setting up the production on the first night to discussing speaking with Skrillex online for the first time to reaching out to Hayley Williams and the entire release around ’Stay The Night’ and much much more. This really lets you see a more personal side of Zedd showing you not only what nice of a guy he is, but also how hands on he is with the entire business of him as an artist which is rare to see.
To see Zedd experience such a level of success is really incredible making us think back to when Thissongissick actually brought out Zedd for one of his first shows in the US ever in Boulder, CO at the even more intimate Fox Theatre in 2011.
Danny Brown, Pusha T, Action Bronson, YG, Young Thug and 30 More Rappers On 42-Minute Freestyle “The Rap Monument”Posted in Bangin by Jake | Tags: Action Bronson, Danny Brown, Pusha T, Rap Monument, YG
What happens when you put 36 of the best rappers on the same track with production by Hudson Mohawke, S-Type, and Nick Hook? Pure greatness.
The Rap Monument is a project unlike anything else we’ve seen. This 42 minute video features a wide array of MCs including Pusha T, Problem, Danny Brown, Raekwon, Flatbush Zombies, YG, Young Thug, Killer Mike, Action Bronson, and many many more. With this many rappers on the same track you might think it’s overwhelming, or too much to take in, but they transition smoothly in an album-like fashion over a wide variety of beats provided entirely by Hudson Mohawke and S-Type. Not only is it incredibly impressive Noisey & Hennessy were able to coordinate this project with so many moving parts, but the video itself is expertly shot and put together in a way that brings an artistic, visual element to the insanity going on in the studio.
We’ve heard some great large collaborative tracks over the past couple years including A$AP Rocky’s legendary “1 Train," but none use more than one beat or have any near 36 rappers. We’ve truly been blessed with the ultimate Hip Hop cut including some of the biggest names in rap. Pusha T breaks the ice with the first verse and is followed by a constant shuffle of verses as MCs constantly hop on and off the mic for a constant 42 minutes in a cypher-like fashion. Check out the behind the scenes footage to get an inside look at how it all went down. Look at the full list of the rappers in the list below the jump.

Skrillex and Diplo's collab project Jack Ü continues to bring us a stream of all star remixes of their debut single "Take Ü There". Following up the recent Zeds Dead version, we now have Paris based future house pioneer Tchami offering his own spin. We hear Tchami deliver his signature house sound with an even more heavy twist on the drops, which makes sense considering who he is remixing. Looks like Tchami is not slowing down anytime soon as he continues to establish himself as one of the most exciting producers to be watching out for. You can stream the song below, but be on the look out to pick up your copy alongside the upcoming Take Ü There Remix EP set to release December 23rd. Enjoy!
