The idea of a mashup / bootleg has almost entirely disappeared in 2014, that is unless it is one of the very rare occasions where it sounds like a completely new song. Today we get one of the most impressive mixes we have ever heard; a blend of BANKS' hit indie single "Drowning" setting the tone for vocals from 2pac's rap anthem "Thugz Mansion" mixed together by Carlos Serrano. The combination of both tracks sounds so natural it's unreal; with 2Pac's verses perfectly bouncing back and forth with BANKS' smooth chrous. Listen below to the song and grab a free download thanks to Carlos Serrano. Enjoy!

Knife Party have been teasing the release of their debut studio album Abandon Ship! over the past few months leaking tracks like "Begin Again" and "Boss Mode", while also pushing back the entire release of the project to work on perfecting it. Well now, a few weeks ahead of the newly scheduled release date of November 24th, the duo have decided to drop the entire project on us due to an early iTunes leak, and no one is complaining. The album brings in the festival-geared style the duo helped carve with their past releases while also incorporating more melodic influences from their Pendulum past. Songs like "EDM Trend Machine" standout on the release while still sounding great, it manages to poke fun at big room house and incorporate new trending styles like future house / deep house. You can now listen to the entire project below on top of being able to pick up a copy through iTunes which is available through their own label Earstorm Records.

A re-creation of the cult classic film Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas, the video starts off with Schoolboy building a concoction of pills and liquids similar to the drug binge from the movie. The visual effects let the viewer step into Q's shoes after ingesting all the substances. This video couldn’t be more fitting for a song titled “Hell of a Night” as girls bounce around a raging house party punctuated by a series of interesting events. The video starts and ends with the same scene as if it might start all over again, or was it just a dream? Watch the wild journey and you can pick up your copy of the song as part of Schoolboy Q's latest album Oxymoron. Enjoy!
Established music video director RoboShobo has brought to visual life one of this fall’s catchiest tunes, “Go All Night” by the impressive UK based duo Gorgon City. Their debut album, Sirens, took the deep house world by storm this fall following its Oct 7 release. The LP provided us with some of the grooviest house tunes of the year with the unique specialty of a different vocalist on every track. This adventure of a video provides the perfect setting for the track as Jennifer Hudson and the production duo groove all night an underground rave. Quite fitting as the tune surely has the potential to become a huge hit in dance clubs everywhere.
A rapper TSIS has been covering for years, Omar LinX (known for his work on countless Zed's Dead tracks) is back with the first single from his biggest solo release to date. Earlier this year, we were teased with new music like "" and "" from his Road to M.O.R. series. Today, we get a taste of LinX's latest studio album M.O.R – Music or Revenge, set to release independently on December 2nd, with the lead single "Dosey Doe". The song features contrasting sample-powered production with a wobbly twist thanks to his partners-in-crime Zeds Dead and go-to producer Pro Logic. The song properly displays Omar's uniquely dark yet playfully flowing verses that blend with the instrumental just right.

Seeing a brand new remix from blooming Norwegian producer Cashmere Cat can cause one to experience a certain level of excitement. Fresh off the heels of sharing “Four”, a track he produced for rapper Juicy J, the Cat returns with an extra cool rendition of newcomer singer Ryn Weaver’s “Octahate”, a track he helped produce originally. The song features xylophone elements that are enhanced by Cashmere’s unique production techniques. The restructured drop is followed by a future-bass and glitchy-trap aesthetic. Cashmere Cat provides fans with a stream for now, but stay on the look out for info on a release. Enjoy!

Lido remixes are generally something you want to pay attention to. His latest, a fresh take on Alt-J's "Left Hand Free" is no exception. The Pelican Fly wunderkind has been on a hot streak releasing a handful of originals and remixes over the last year. This Alt-J remix is one of his cleanest sounding to date. The track starts off calm playing off the indie vocals, but around the 1:30 mark Lido kicks it up with some explosive synths that hit hard and pack the transformational punch. He's also added in a strong set of drums along with his signature samples. You can stream the remix below today; it's definitely something you will want to playback more than once. Enjoy!
