Diplo and Skrillex destroyed the internet a few months back with the announcement of their collabroative new project Jack U, which now his it's own Facebook and Soundcloud pages and couldn't be anymore real of a project. They have already shut down Ultra Music Festival and Hard Summer among others this year, and have been previewing out some brand new original material. Today we get a live recording of their first single "Take U There" featuring UK exploding singer Kiesza. The anthem in the making blends both artists styles, this one leaning on the Diplo side of things. Preview the single as Jack U has just uploaded below and look out for more info on their upcoming collaborative releases. Listen below and enjoy!

We have come to know that whenever emerging LA producer Elephante takes hold of a track to remix, it is guaranteed to be house gold. Having previously delivered massive cuts of Calvin Harris's "Summer" and Clean Bandits "Rather Be", the craftiness shown before is on display again via a brand new remix of rising live indie / electro group Lemaitre out of Norway and their hit single "Wait". Elephante smashes a blend of progressive houes and nu-disco elements making it near impossible to resist moving.

We’ve seen Louis Futon establish quite the buzz from their string of remixes over the past few months, like Wiz Khalifa, Logic and Mos Def among others. The duo has a self-titled EP set to release soon and first previewed the song “Sir Rock” a few weeks back. They have enlisted LA to Boulder transplant producer Kill Paris to deliver a fresh remix to their unreleased original “Silk”. The result is nothing short of incredible; Kill Paris chopped up and rearranged all the future bass and chilled out trap elements for a soulful piece of joy. This might be one of my favorite remixes I have ever heard from Kill Paris and is is apart of the Louis Futon EP coming out next month! We are gifted with a free download to make it even better, so listen below and pick up a free download now. Enjoy!

[TSIS PREMIERE] Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Maps (Tommie Sunshine, CID & Modern Machines Remix) : Progressive House AnthemPosted in Bangin, Premieres by Bryan | Tags: CID, Free Download, Modern Machines, progressive house, Remix, Tommie Sunshine
What happens when three stand out electro-house producers come together as one to breath new life into iconic indie rock band Yeah Yeah Yeah's breakout single "Maps" is a thing of beauty as Tommie Sunshine, CID, and Modern Machines discovered! The trio of talent allow their creativity to take the best of them as they implant a progressive house adaptation over the original while still allowing the prominent vocals to shine through. Tommie Sunshine had this to say about the release:
What you're hearing is a lot of love, some of these guys (including myself) used to play this end of the night track a decade ago in the Lower East Side of Manhattan so its meaning has many layers to all of us involved.
You may have heard this anthem played out at clubs and festivals this summer with the likes of Tommy Trash, Steve Aoki, Kaskade, and many more already playing it out. You can stream the exclusive premiere below and grab yourself a free download thanks to the Tommie Sunshine as well! Enjoy

Almost a full calendar year has passed since the release of iconic bass heavyweight Flux Pavilion's Freeway EP, today we have news of a string of official remixes from the project making up a new remix ep. The first remix is a collaborative effort between Flux himself and fellow bass icon Kill the Noise as the two come together to add a new spin to the single "Freeway". With a surprising change of pace, the two producers cast trap drum effects on-top of the original dubstep structure to create something infectiously clever that highlights the original vocals just right. You can stream this remix below and stay tuned for the other cast of remixers apart the official Freeeway Remix EP before its October release. Enjoy
