Loose yourself by letting the good vibes take over your body and stream this track below / grab a free download to go. Enjoy

We were looking for a great track to keep everyone's weekend going and couldn't find anything new that quite hit the spot like this remix from The Knocks we've been sitting on for a couple of months. The New York duo that is on fire, recently letting loose the first single " from their upcoming EP, have taken on fellow New York producer Party Supplies' song "Going Back to New York" from his recent artist album Tough Love. Here are Ben Ruttner (B ROC) of The Knocks thoughts on making the song:
"When I heard this song it really struck a chord with me because of always being on the road away from NYC and instantly wanted to remix it. We wanted to make it the perfect soundtrack for a drive home to New York City."
Their goal for remixing the song was to create the perfect soundtrack for coming back to New York City, and I think they have managed to do so, yet no matter what city you are located you will find it hard to not get down to this song. Stream below and grab a free download thanks to The Knocks. Enjoy!

It all comes together as a perfect smooth track to bring you to the summer state of mind. Keep your eyes on Sebastian Carter as he is definitely a name to look for in the exploding deep house world.

Tipped as one of the most sought after producers to achieve stardom in and outside of electronic music, Parisian born DJ Snake is coming in hot with the necessary talent and endorsements to make some serious waves in 2014. Commissioned with a residency at the prestigious Wynn Las Vegas will garnish a great deal of time in the states to work on new material, hit the upcoming summer festival scene hard and collaborate with fellow artists in and outside of the Mad Decent clique. Picked as the final "Future Stars" artist to gain a spotlight on Pete Tong's infamous Essential Mix, DJ Snake complied a set featuring a surprising amount of Tech-House / Jackin-House and Nu-Disco heaters in the beginning before transitioning into an onslaught of Trap, Moombahton, and heavy bass gems. New music from the likes of Bare, Alesia, Dillon Francis and a few edits / versions from DJ Snake are peppered throughout the two hour set. Turn your stereo's up loud and stream and download the mix thanks to DJ Snake. Enjoy

New York based duo The Chainsmokers have finally released their long awaited original single "#Selfie" through Steve Aoki's label Dim Mak Records. The song is a gritty hands in the air electro house heater that captures the 'Melbourne Bounce' sound. The corresponding music video has a hysterical narration of girls smoking cigerrettes, buying fake instagram followers, and of course taking selfies. The song has already positioned itself as one of the biggest festival anthems for this upcoming season with support from A-list producers and DJs before it's release. Pick up your copy through iTunes and Beatport from Dim Mak. Enjoy!

"Turn Back Time", one of the biggest songs from Sub Focus' artist album Torus was completely flipped into a full on festival trap anthem thanks to Southhampton, Britain based producer Gold Top. While leaving the vocals and melodies somehow intact, the song stays just as uplifting with some anthemic "Animals" inspired drops that will have you shaking. The second break goes half time bringing in an unexpected yet effective switch-up. I have a feeling we will be seeing more of this Gold Top fellow throughout 2014. You can stream the entire song and grab a free download. Enjoy!

Chromeo and Toro y Moi recently linked up for one of my favorite tracks I have ever heard from either artist individually and now we get the undeniably amazing track brought to visual form. As both artists’ track records include great music videos, it was no surprise it feels more like a short film as opposed to a music video, by Alex Southam. From Toro y Moi dressed as a janitor to Dave 1 electrocuting people, and girls dancing in leotards the video really has it all. Enjoy!
