[PREMIERE] Kanye West & The Weeknd Come Together For “Feel Stronger” Carlos Serrano Mix [Free Download]Posted in Bangin, Chill, Premieres by nick | Tags: Carlos Serrano, Free Download, kanye west, Mix, Premiere, The Weeknd
Last year we heard the unlikely pairing of Kanye West and Sam Smith on "Tell Me I'm The Only One" which was seamlessly mixed by Carlos Serrano.
This time around The Weeknd and his recent radio smash "Can't Feel My Face" acts as the instrumental and vocal accompaniment for Kanye West's iconic "Stronger" vocals to sit perfectly over. Like all of the edits from the bootleg maestro Carlos Serrano, this will have you wondering why both artists haven't worked on something original yet. You can also hear some guest saxophone playing from TSIS regular Dominic Lalli of Big Gigantic.
Listen below to the premiere of the song and grab a free download thanks to Carlos Serrano. Enjoy!

Apart from the release of “Bend,” Future Classic’s Chet Faker has mostly stayed quiet since the release of his stellar 2014
album Built On Glass which featured one of his breakout singles "1998". Now he’s released a new version of the song, and he’s enlisted the alluring vocals of LA singer Banks. She comes in adding a brand new verse and adds background vocals throughout to round out the already amazing song and give it a new dynamic we didn’t even know the original needed. Stream below and head to the iTunes store to grab the download.

Drake decides to set this week off on the best note ever with not one but two new unreleased tracks uploaded in full to his Soundcloud.
The first track “Hotline Bling” is a song that he’s been playing out at his festival performances including Governor’s Ball amongst others. It sounds like it’s bound to be the next radio single with smooth production and infectious verses and choruses.
The b-side to go with the track is "Right Hand” which is a darker, more sensual track with some very basic production. Enjoy!

UK based house duo Disclosure broke out in 2012 with their single "Latch" featuring at the time unknown fellow UK artist Sam Smith on vocals. Fast forward to today and Sam Smith has 4 Grammy awards and has sold 4 million copies of his In The Lonely Hour album and shows know signs of slowing down. Well as Disclosure approaches the release of their sophomore album Caracal set for a September 25th release, already seeing single "Holding On" Ft. Gregory Porter, and also the change up unexpected non album single "Bang That", the buzz couldn't be higher.
Well today we get our ears on the full version of the long awaited return collaboration "Omen" featuring both artists. The song has a much more downtempo vibe to it than the anthemic radio ready "Latch". It'd be hard to not imagine hearing this everywhere for the rest of the year and more, yet it's definitely not quite the followup to "Latch" anyone was expecting. Enjoy!
FKJ is on a roll as of late with his new original “Drops” and an infectious remix of Lianne La Havas’ “Unstoppable,” and he has a new one for us today off his label, Roche Musique’s .Wave compilation. He’s teamed up with labelmate Darius on “Ô,” which is one of FKJ’s most mellow releases to date as minimal percussion is accompanied by his signature slick guitar rifts and melodic keys with short, sexy vocal samples thrown in. Keep an eye on this label and keep an eye out the whole compilation due on 8/21 as Roche Musique is responsible for some of the smoothest sounds out there.
