[PREMIERE] Jack Ü – Where Are Ü Now (Ember Island Cover) (Flaxo Remix) : Chill Trap / Indie [Free Download]Posted in Bangin, Premieres by nick | Tags: Ember Island, Flaxo, Free Download, Jack U, Premiere, Remix
Diplo and Skrillex's collaborative single "Where Are Ü Now" as Jack Ü' also featuring Justin Bieber continues to make waves worldwide letting both artists step into the pop world like never before.
Well today we get to hear an unexpected remix of the song which uses the acoustic cover version of the song from Ember Island as the base. Flaxo, a TSIS regular who's brought us remixes of Bingo Players "Knock You Out" and Yellow Claw's "Shotgun" has stepped up to the plate. He layers in new melodies, exciting percussion elements and a guitar and horn filled drop that make just enough room for Ember Island's vocals to lay on top perfectly. Stream the premiere of the song below and grab a free download. Enjoy!
Here are some words from Flaxo himself on the remix
""I stumbled on this Ember Island cover of the Jack U/Bieber collab Where Are U Now and fell in love instantly. I've been experimenting with some different rhythmic formats and different instrumental styles that incorporated some more organic drumming and basslines with more "synthetic" stuff and when this fell on my lap I thought it made perfect sense to take some of the more uplifting, organic material I had written and put it together with this really vulnerable, personal vocal cut from them. It's intended for moments on a train or a bus where you forget where you are for a sec and you think back to something that happened 5 years ago."
We've also been informed Flaxo has an original EP in the works so be on the lookout.

[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!

TSIS regulars Big Gigantic are in the middle of quite an impressive festival run that started earlier this year back at Ultra and has not stopped since with an epic closing set at Electric Forest recently (along with a surprise sunrise RV set). Well they have decided to indulge in the summer spirit and hit us up to debut a brand new 60 minute long Summer Mixtape. The mix features a very nice mixture of old and new summer ready tracks spanning from classics like Pretty Lights' "Finally Moving" to Big G's new collaboration with SNAILS, "Funk With Me". There are also two mysterious "ID" tracks in the mix, the first one sounds like a remix of Zedd's new song "Beautiful Now" featuring Jon Bellion done by an unknown remixer (Possibly Big G?). The second unknown track is just a few songs later, and truly sounds like the new GRiZ x Big Gigantic collaboration that they have been teasing during recent live shows.
The Mixtape comes on the heels of the band’s announcement of their fall North American headlining “Get On Up” tour, featuring support from The Floozies on most dates which you can find all dates below and a limited amount of pre-sale tickets through TSIS ticketing here.
