Vancouver based producer Vanic came out of nowhere just over a year ago and we've managed to premiere and post more then a handful of his tracks like infectious remixes of Major Lazer's "Be Together" and amazing originals like "Circles" with Machine Heart or other collaborations with Tove Styrke and K. Flay amongst others…
Well he's back with his latest and he more than delivers. Teaming up with singer Zella Day once again on a brand new remix of her song "HIGH." We get an even more polished version of his signature future bass inspired sound that comes complete with a more heavy, dance fueled edge to it. Zella Day's vocals go perfectly with the upbeat track really tying it all together. We are excited to bring the world premiere of this song and give you an exclusive free download. Enjoy!

Iconic hip-hop DJ Green Lantern has expanded his career from DJing for artists like Eminem and Nas to a growing into an artist himself by producing original content & remixes in the electronic realm. He’s impressed us thus far with a great remix of Wu-Tang’s classic “C.R.E.A.M.” in addition to massive funk infused sample heavy original “Funk Space Coaster,” and stellar mixes.
This track preps us for the release of the much anticipated new Star Wars movie and is a spin on a classic song “Cantina" from the iconic scene where Hans Solo enters an alien bar in A New Hope, and the familiar track is reimagined as a fresh trap heater. This new tune from Lantern is appropriately titled "Awaken," and has enlisted the talents of Buygore's Woogie alongside up and coming 15 year old Australian artist, Toby Romeo. These artists rework the classic song into a hard-hitting trap anthem and according to Lantern, they "remixed the fun, funky tune and brought it to you fully trapped out with enough 808 to take out a Death Star.” Enjoy this massive spin on the iconic Star Wars track we’re all familiar with and grab the free download below.

Toronto based rapper Omar LinX is no stranger to TSIS. It’s been quite a long time since we started following the MC who first caught our eye teaming with bass duo Zeds Dead on unforgettable collaborations like "Out For Blood," "Jackie Boy," "Cowboy" and "Crank", or more recently “Dosey Doe.”
Now after dropping an impressive album M.O.R (Music or Revenge) last year, he has continued to build his name as a solo artist and even came off a recent unexpected collaboration with rising EDM mystery man Marshmello on “Keep It Mello” we premiered last month.
Now Omar is back with the latest chapter on an original titled “Back To You” produced by fellow rising Toronto based artist and TSIS regular Hunter Siegel and in addition go to producer Pro Logic. This latest single features an ominous bass line layered with trap elements and catchy vocal chops as Omar lays down his signature bone chilling verses. Listen to the premiere below out via Buygore. Enjoy

We'd like to welcome a new face to TSIS. Going simply by EDEN, the 19 year old Irish artist who both sings and produces has been making waves online this past year through a variety of online uploads and a recent End Credits EP that was just released with Mr. Suicide Sheep's label.
Today the young artist made the very bold move of covering "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson, one of the most iconic pop songs of all time. His audacious move paid off though as he managed to completely reimagine the song, delivering an instrumental packed full with a mixture of organic instruments and electronic influence. First starting with acapella harmonies, the song evolves as piano lines and guitar strumming get added to the track while a distorted 8-bit sounding breakdown reveals a throwback to his original breakout song "XO."
The harmonies and piano/guitar riffs act as the perfect background for his own vocals to shine through on- simutaneously paying homage to the originial song while offering his own brilliant spin. We are extremely excited to premiere this and also provide an exclusive free download. Enjoy!
