Album releases from Action Bronson (Mr. Wonderful) and Earl Sweatshirt (I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside) were one day apart, and the two rappers have unveiled a collaborative bonus track to celebrate the occasion. Hip-hop veteran Alchemist produces the beat for “Warlord Leather” packing some raw jungle style percussion, a perfect foundation for the rappers to effortlessly throw down flawless verses with some smooth background vocals by Lou Diamond Phillips. Instead of using a chorus, Earl and Action trade off stellar verses after Bronson simply says “put me in coach” and takes over to close out this great track.

Kygo continues his transformation from being the most highly buzzed about internet remix artist to being a fully accredited global star as he rolls out his first original songs. Following up his debut single "Firestone" he treats us to his latest, "Stole The Show" featuring the talented singer Parson James. We hear Kygo's signature bright melodies shine through and some smooth organic elements that leave room for Parson's vocals to carry out the track. The video follows a dancing astronaut, Kygo himself dancing in ski gear in a house party, and an interesting twist. This might be an even bigger track then his first, it will be cool to see how big it goes! Enjoy!

Marvin Gaye’s “How Sweet It Is” will forever be a classic, yet surprisingly hasn’t been altered much in forms of modern remixes. Well that changes today thanks to D.C. producer Eau Claire who flipped the song into an upbeat version blending tropical house and nu-disco sounds. She adds new melodies, drums and more, yet does a great job at letting the original vocals be a focus letting the magic of the original shine bright. Listen below and grab a free download!

In a matter of a year, ZHU quickly went from being someone who sent us an Outkast bootleg mashup to our submission to receiving a Grammy nomination. Today he brings another single from his Nightday EP to life with a music video for "The One." For this music video version of the song there is a saxaphone-fueled intro and outro to make things even more interesting. The video is film noire with graphic novel texture and highlights a woman holding a man captive in her house.
At the end of the video we see a glimpse of Zhu himself, keeping the mysterious vibe high.
Right at the end we also get a shot of his newly announced European tour dates starting in May.
May 22: Ibiza
May 25: Amsterdam
