Mac Miller just did a completely unexpected cover of indie / folk artist Bright Eyes. He covered one of my favorite tracks sung by Coner Oberst aka Bright Eyes, “First Day Of My Life”. Mac didn’t turn it into a hip-hop remix sampling the beat, he covered it. Never heard Mac sing like this. And that’s Mac playing the guitar, complete with random solo at the end. Chill out, enjoy!

[TSIS PREMIERE] Static Revenger feat. Dev – Turn The World On (TheFatRat Dub Remix) + (Protohype + Kezwik Remix) : Electro House + Dubstep RemixesPosted in Bangin by nick | Tags: BANGER, Bass Music, Dance, Dub Remix, Dubstep, Electronic, Heavy, Protohype, Remix, TheFatRat
Today I’ve got 2 massive remixes from of a huge electronic track “Turn The World On” by Static Revenger Ft. Dev. The original has a nice dance vibe complete with Daft Punk sounding robot vocals. The first remix here is our premiere of the TheFatRat Dub Remix.. which is a bass heavy electro house anthem with all of Dev’s vocals removed, leaving just the robot voices and TheFatRat’s signature nasty basslines, making a perfect track for DJ’s. It is for sale through Beatport, on top of our download. Next up is a filthy dubstep remix from Protohype and Kezwik, we’ve featured the bass heavy Protohype quite a few times on the site, always dropping gold. For their remix they left in the vocals from Dev, getting annihilated by the massive bass. Fair warning, this one is not for the feint of heart. And it is charting on Beatport, so go support Protohype and Kezwik. Enjoy!

Damn, I’ve been waiting for this for quite some time.. GRiZ.. the past Michigan resident who has made his way to Boulder has finally announced that his Mad Liberation album will be coming out September 4th for free. TSIS has been following this talented 22 year old producer ever since we posted his his MASSIVE remix of Aerosmith’s “Dream On”. This is the last single off of Mad Liberation to come out before it drops next week. There isn’t an official tracklist, but I believe that “The Future Is Now” and “Where Is The Love” are on the album as well. This track “Smash the Funk” is a future funk /groovestep bass heavy BANGER. It starts off with a dancey funk break which immedately picks up some energy with a little bass. It then moves it then builds up more and more energy until the bass finally comes crashing in complete with his eerie high pitched synths. The track has soul and emotion, yet capturing a modern crunchy edge.. to form GRiZ’s distinct flavor. Turn up the bass, get ready for September 4th, this looks to be one of the biggest releases of the year. Enjoy!
