Swedish based Kasbo continues to appear on our radar yet again for the fourth time in a few months following his remixes of both Louis Futon's "Sir Rock" and Icona Pop's "Get Lost" and breakout original Kaledioscope. Today he takes on indie group Vance Joy and flips their 2013 single "Riptide" and gives it a proper 2015 future bass makeover. Kasbo completely reimagines the song adding new piano lines and unique percussion that rides into melodic drops while managing to highlight the vocals and guitar perfectly. Enjoy

Climbing Toronto / Austin rapper Tory Lanez has been on our radar for years now and has not been short on releases the past few months including songs "Diego" and "Mama Told Me" produced by Ryan Hemsworth. Today Tory has teamed up with London based production duo Snakehips for a very unexpected but incredible collaboration titled "Dímelo". Snakehips step out of the box on this one and lay down a synth-fueled, 808-heavy, hip-hop meets R&B beat which Tory proceeds to step up and destroy bouncing from singing and rapping seamlessly. The song was made in one night as part of the "Songs From Scratch & Yours Truly" campaign, which spawned tracks like the GoldLink x Chet Faker heater last year. Stream the full song below and we will keep you posted on a download. Enjoy

The always incredible Australian beatmaker Ta-Ku has just unveiled his latest release which appears to be an unlikely collaboration with Jaden Smith.

Jaden displays his versatility and potential to truly be considered a very legitimate rapper. Enjoy!

"Two Nights Under The Starlit Skies In The Majestic Colorado Mountains"
Pretty Lights, one of the most influential faces in live electronic music, and Colorado's hero, always continues to keep his fans guessing with unexpected twists every single year. Last year he managed to work with the Colorado Symphony to have them play with him for his last two nights at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre.. a venue he's been selling out for over 4 years now. He has headlined festivals all across the world and played in the smallest and biggest of cities. This week he has revealed some very exciting, and long awaited news, the first ever true Pretty Lights camping event. The guy has been dominating the camping festival circuit for years now, so it only made sense.
He has chosen the gorgeous location of Telluride, Colorado, and specifically the Telluride Town Park, out in the open right next to the gorgeous Rocky Mountains as close as you can get to the stars. He is set takeover the amazing outdoor location over August 28th and 29th this summer where he will be making history.
This is what Derek Vincent Smith aka Pretty Lights has to say about the special 2 day gathering:
"I've thought a lot about what a perfect place to throw a Pretty Lights concert might be, and what that actually means. I think that Telluride Town Park might be a place like that. The energy that resonates there is beyond the cusp of my own understanding but it is powerful and undeniable. I think that the seclusion of Telluride creates a real opening to focus on getting in touch.. with each other, ourselves, and the vibrations we experience as music, light, and life. PLUS the stars shine incredibly bright and the mountains are jaw dropping. These two nights in Telluride will be an awesome and historic opportunity to experience a live Pretty Lights show in what may be the perfect venue,"
You can purchase tickets to this special, extremely unique event through here on Feb 27th.
Rae Sremmurd made waves with their debut album, and today we hear a remix of one of their less popular tunes from the release, "This Could Be Us". The song is flipped upside down thanks to Pittsburgh's nosleep who has been on quite the roll with his recent remixes of The Weeknd's "Wicked Games" and P Reign, Drake and Future's "DnF". The producer completely restructures the song, adding unique percussion and a fresh new synth melody on the drops that will stick in your head. This is easily nosleep's best track to date, and he luckily has made it available as a free download. Listen below, grab a copy and look out for nosleep and enjoy!

George Maple has continued to pop up on our radar through her originals and now as incredible remixes of her breakout single "Talk Talk" have surfaced.
Renowned Australian beatmaker Ta-Ku is typically very clever with his way of reimagining songs and his latest track is no exception. Ta-Ku’s rendition of “Talk Talk” gives the track a completely different feel as he slows the tempo down and puts interesting effects on the vocals that change throughout the song. The track starts out slow until his irresistible percussion comes in around the one minute mark and the beat evolves to gain more energy up to the end. Ta-ku surprisingly offers his own vocals on part of this song (and they sound great) as he states in the song description "Remixed the homegirl… I even sung a verse.” Enjoy!
It’s no secret that Soulection is one of the most forward thinking labels out there as they have fittingly labeled themselves as “The Sound of Tomorrow”. They have helped put exciting artists on the map like Mr. Carmack, Sango, Ta-Ku, Esta and many many more. Today, we have for you the latest member to join their talented cast, the innovative 18 year old producer Sam Gellaitry from Stirling, Scotland.
Gellaitry’s progressive sound is displayed in his debut Short Stories EP as his hard hitting bass sits perfectly alongside dreamy, atmospheric melodies to create his unique contrasting sound that is truly genre-defying. Each song on this project takes many unexpected turns as the producer constantly surprises with the shifting of a variety of instrumental layers. "Reflectionz" and "To Earth and Back" both sound like standouts, but honestly every single track on this project is amazing and worth listening to from start to finish. Enjoy!

Today I’m excited to bring you a refreshing new remix I found from an artist with very little info public info named Danielle. She or he (hoping it’s a she), has taken newcomer indie band Freedom Fry and flipped their song "Shaky Ground" into an indie electronic slice of perfection. Some new drums help define the new mix, the vocals are chopped up perfectly, and just the right amount of electronic edge is added to the blend. I haven’t been able to stop replaying this tune as I’m sure will be the same case with you. Listen below and grab a free download Danielle has made available. Enjoy!

Out of nowhere, Djemba Djemba has taken the Drake approach unleashing 13 unreleased tracks as an incredible Soundcloud set titled “If you’re listening to this it’s Leftover Beats.”
All 13 tracks are amazing in their own way, with each being uniquely different from the others. Djemba Djemba, who's been known to frequently collaborate with everyone ranging from Diplo to Ailson Wonderland, displays his experimental tendencies as he incorporates elements of future bass, trap, hip-hop, jungle and more while with tha tracks themselves range from complete songs to cool sounding loops or beats. Standout tracks include all 3 of his collabs with Mr Carmack ("Money 2-2 ft. Penthouse Penthouse", "DARKERNATURE", "Iris v2") along with “Fashunweek,” “plum blossom,” and “Motherfuckers Ride Up,” but every song is definitely worth listening to. Enjoy!
