Longtime electronic influenced rapper Omar LinX has earned his reputation as one of electronica's favorite hip-hop artists, hopping on dubstep-influenced tracks since 2010. His early collab with Zeds Dead on "Out For Blood" had us immediately impressed, since then Omar has been a mainstay on the site, we even premiered his album M.O.R. (Music Or Revenge) in 2014. On the project were absolute bangers like the up-beat "Dosey Doe" and the chilled out "Red Light Green Light." Now today frequent collaborator Zeds Dead revamps the latter by giving it an impressive dubstep makeover.
The production duo keeps Omar's verses, but throws in a reworked beat and then turns the chorus into an all-out dubstep surprise. With heavy whomps and slow burning melodies, the fellow Candian producers masterfully alter the song, giving it a refreshing new twist without changing the integrity of the original. Enjoy!

The beloved Swedish indie-pop group Miike Snow first ended their 3 year hiatus after the release of the incredible "Heart Is Full" and the more up-beat "Genghis Khan" shortly after. Since the release of the latter, we've known that their upcoming album iii would be coming out March 4, 2016. The group has continued to build the hype with the announcement of a remix package for the lead single "Genghis Khan," which is slated to be released January 29th.
Today we are proud to announce the TSIS premiere of Columbus, Ohio based Yacht Club's official remix ahead of the Jan. 29th release date. We were immediately captivated by their remix of Miike Snow's hit.
The two up-and-comers skillfully twist "Genghis Khan" into a house meets disco jam. Speeding things up and tying in their own vibrant synth patterns and drum beats, the two keenly keep some of the original vocals intact for a whole new way of hearing the song. Listen for yourself below and make sure to check out the entire remix package on Jan. 29th before iii's release!

We were previously impressed by SG Lewis’ remix of Disclosure’s “Magnets” and he’s been an up and coming producer on our radar ever since. Now this 20 year old Liverpool based producer has a groovy new original track for your listening pleasure.
This time he’s teamed up with vocalist Dornik on “All Night” for a silky collaboration as the sultry vocals are the perfect match for the laid back, vibe filled instrumental. “After listening to Dornik's album on repeat for most of the summer, I was dying to work together on something,” says SG Lewis, “I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it.” This track was co-produced by Phairo and is a great, mellow track to kick back to. Enjoy!
