Marvin Gaye’s “How Sweet It Is” will forever be a classic, yet surprisingly hasn’t been altered much in forms of modern remixes. Well that changes today thanks to D.C. producer Eau Claire who flipped the song into an upbeat version blending tropical house and nu-disco sounds. She adds new melodies, drums and more, yet does a great job at letting the original vocals be a focus letting the magic of the original shine bright. Listen below and grab a free download!

Rae Sremmurd continue to plant themselves as the youngest, hottest duo in commercial hip-hop and today they continue their hot streak with the release of a music video for their collaboration “Throw Sum Mo” featuring Nicki Minaj and Young Thug.
They bring the song to life with an all out rager in the middle of a an old-school looking rolling skating rink. Both Sremmurd boys are showering bills all throughout while Nicki and an endless cast of girls are twerking at every square inch, complete with stripper poles and all. It is just as outrageous and over the top as you’d expect from this never boring duo. Young Thug ends the video bringing in his completely incoherent verse that only he could get away with. Watch below and enjoy!

Say hello to iSHi, a brand new producer in the game that we have very little information on. But this brand new producer just released his debut single which has a feature from Pusha T providing insanely fresh verses. The production is a bass fueled trap beat that sets the tone for the entire track and provides the perfect soundtrack for Pusha to drop some relentless verses throughout. The fact that iSHi has Pusha T featured on his debut single has us thinking this is some other major producer’s side project, or someone that has to be connected enough to pull that off. Either way, we are sold and expect big things to follow with iSHI. We are also treated to the tease of what looks like his new music video right at the end here. Listen below and watch the video. Enjoy!

In a matter of a year, ZHU quickly went from being someone who sent us an Outkast bootleg mashup to our submission to receiving a Grammy nomination. Today he brings another single from his Nightday EP to life with a music video for "The One." For this music video version of the song there is a saxaphone-fueled intro and outro to make things even more interesting. The video is film noire with graphic novel texture and highlights a woman holding a man captive in her house.
At the end of the video we see a glimpse of Zhu himself, keeping the mysterious vibe high.
Right at the end we also get a shot of his newly announced European tour dates starting in May.
May 22: Ibiza
May 25: Amsterdam
May 27: London
May 29: Paris
June 1: Brussels

Well now instead of having to watch fan made phone videos, we get to enjoy the official full quality broadcasted video of the performance for the first time, and it only continues to solidify how great of a live performer he is. Surrounded by a large posse of men dressed in all black, Kanye raps while flame throwers are shot into the air in an epic demonstration of his song that will be appearing on his still very mysterious upcoming studio album.
The crew Kanye invited onstage included some of the forerunners in UK’s “grime” rap scene such as Skepta, who Kanye thanked with a shoutout.

The very diverse French producer Habstrakt has turned out tracks ranging from trap heaters like "Datbooty" and "Listen" or his future house flip of Skrillex's "Dirty Vibe". He pushes the the limits of his future house sounding direction with a much heavier twist in his latest original "Time" which we have the premiere of today. "Time" is an eerie, extra dark take on house music, something you'd hear at an after after hours event in a grimey warehouse, in the best way possible.

Today we have the premiere of an exciting new remix of the blossoming Australian singer George Maple, who was just featured with her recent song "Where You And I Begin". Her single "Talk Talk", originally produced by Snakehips and finished by Flume and George Maple herself, surfaced last year and helped put her on the map. Well today's remix of the song is from a tag team duo of What So Not's Emoh (Formerly Emoh Instead) alongside a new British producer 11 Lit3s. The two come together to completely reimagine the sultry indie single into a future bass, extra spacey, bass heavy anthem of a remix. This is just crying for DJs to rinse it out over the next year. Listen to the premiere below and we will keep you updated on a release or download.

TroyBoi is a London based producer known for pushing boundaries with every single track, like in his monster collaboration alongside Flosstradamus on "Soundclash". He always reminds us of other boundary-less artists like Mr. Carmack or Louis Futon yet carries out his own defined sound. This unexpected surprise track, "Zone" is a gritty, spacey, chilled out, futuristic trap-influenced heater that will have your head bobbing right out the gate. Troyboi said this song is meant for "zoning out", and that's exactly what happens while listening to the funky middle eastern influenced pan flutes and bass rumbles. Listen to the song below and grab a free download thanks to Troyboi and make sure to watch out for this talented producer. Enjoy!
