Get your day going to the smooth bass filled sounds of French producer Habstrakt newest single as he follows up the ingredients from his previous original "Dusk". Playing the fine line between Glitch Hop and Trap better than many, "Listen" adapts a refreshing feel as Habstrakt flawless production methods are on display yet again. If we could give it any particular comparison, it would be as if Koan Sound had been listening to many trap records and went in on a beat. Stream the exclusive premiere below and be sure to pick it up on Beatport March 10th thanks to Disciple Recordings. Enjoy

We're excited to bring you the latest from a favorite in R&B and Rap, the Toronto to Texas rapper Tory Lanez. Today we have an extra sensual 14 track "Chixtape" Vol. 2, living up to what you might expect with the name. His smooth voice and occasional rapping couldn't compliment the electronic powered productions on every track anymore. You'll have a hard time remembering this is only a mixtape with most of the tracks sounding like album singles. This is definitely for fans of the Weeknd. Stream the entire thing below and grab a free download. Enjoy!

Dutch producer / DJ legend and now Doorn Records head Sander van Doorn have linked up LA transplant duo DVBBS (the guys responsible for the international hit "Tsunami", "Raveology" among others) and rising young Dutch superstar Martin Garrix have joined forces to create a collaborative new song "Sundown". Although it's still early, it feels like it could be one of biggest summer festival anthems this year.
The song has just recently surfaced from Martin playing it out live this past week (see video below) and was mislabeled about it being a collaboration between solely Martin Garrix and Sander van Doorn, but we were in LA in the studio with DVBBS late last year where they were actually playing us some early stages of production of this exact song that they were sending back and forth with Sander and Martin as a mssive collaboration. They couldn't be more thrilled to have been able to work with one of their influences, Sander on a track, and furthermore the song is the first ever of theirs to feature Alex of DVBBS's vocals.
The song musically blends their inducing style along with a newer melody driven progressive house side for an unbeatable combination ready to shut down festivals in a whole new way across the globe.
All we have for now is this rip from Sander's radio show, but will keep you posted as more details on this massive track that will guaranteed to be coming out through Spinnin Records in the new few months.

Kendrick Lamar has followed up his genre bending official remix of Imagine Dragons with yet another unexpected collaboration. He has linked up with Australian indie band Tame Impala for the song "Backwards", an amazing combination bringing together two very different styles. Kendrick offers some surprisingly aggressive lyrics that don't let up contrasting perfectly with the smooth chilled out vibes from Tame Impala. Enjoy!
This is another track on the all star official soundtrack for the upcoming movie Divergent to join the already surfaced A$AP Rocky x Gesaffelstein collab and Odesza remix of Pretty Lights. The full soundtrack is set to release March 11th with pre-orders available now.

Two titians in their own respect made an unholy globally connecting alliance for the sake of electronic music to produce what will surely be one of the top collaborations of 2014. Having pushed their unique bass infused house sound to new heights since their inception, producer duo What So Not (Flume & Emoh Instead) commingle their talents with the trap and bass punch of LA native RL Grime to birth the original track "Tell Me". WSN start off with an enticingly soothing build similar those featured in "Touched" & "Jaguar" before RL Grime bodies the drop with a robust bass symphony. With a free download available for everyone to enjoy, you'd be foolish to not take advantage of grabbing this collab sooner rather than later! Enjoy

"With a baby face like that, it's hard not to give it a 5 finger message." These precise thoughts might come to mind while watching the music video for Alex Young brand new original single, which follows his festival anthem remix of Icona Pops "Just Another Night". The melodic trap and wonky electro synth beat created on "Madlibs" accompanies the hijinks of Alex and fellow video villains / vixens perfectly. The very young producer gets the shit beat out of him by a barrage of girls and guy leaving red at the end of the hilarious video. Stream the video below and grab a free download. Enjoy
