The beat master, Montreal based Kaytranada has a knack for creating the perfect beat for the right rapper as we recently saw with "Drive Me Crazy" featuring Vic Mensa. Well today he links up with hip-hop legend Freddie Gibbs for a brand new song "My Dope house." Kay provides a deep punching baseline with some minimalistic synth additions which provides the perfect soundtrack for Gibbs to deliver some solid verses and unexpectedly sing the chorus. Switching up his flows throughout his verses, Gangsta Gibbs gives us one of his most versatile songs to date. This song will be available on a limited 7 inch vinyl along with Spotify and iTunes next month. You can listen to the full song below. Enjoy!

Dillon Francis and DJ Snake's collaborative track “Get Low” became one of the largest party anthems of last year, and Dillon and Snake even remixed their own track with “The Rebirth in Paris.” Some thought the song was right at the tail end of it's life, and today it gets a blast of new life.
While Rae Sremmurd are in the middle of taking the rap world by storm seemingly overnight, they have found time to add their high energy antics to the track. It definitely feels like the artists' labels were responsible with this pairing to milk everything they can out of the track, but it also works. Listen to the full song below and we will keep you posted on an official release. Enjoy!

Crizzly, the Texas bass pioneer of his own genre "Crunkstep" has been turning out remixes for years and has today, for the first time just released his long awaited debut solo release. The expectedly ridiculous titled single "DROP DAT ASS" features the vocals from Crichy Crich and is Crizzly at his finest. It's trap, mixed with dubstep and even a little hardstyle for his signature "Crunkstep" that features a hypnotizing synth melody that leads to some victorious drop sections that proceed to get crazier. Listen to the premiere of the track below and you can pick up your own copy through Crizzly's new imprint label Slice Gang Records. Enjoy!

LA bass pioneer Kill The Noise has been fairly quiet on releasing originals but has now returned with a massive collaboration with Aussie electro producer Tommy Trash on the massive new single "Louder", which is taken from KTN's forthcoming debut studio album. The song is a relentless electro heater that shows each producer's respective styles with heavy drums, gnarly growls and a drop that is guaranteed to bring out your bass face. Kill The Noise and Tommy Trash will be setting out on an eight date North American "Louder" tour to celebrate the release with all dates below.

German producer / DJ Zedd has an insanely successful debut album Clarity, which even saw a deluxe edition re-release and has gone on to be one of the most successful electronic releases in years. He's kept very quite about details surrounding his much anticipated followup studio album, and today we get all the juicy details.
Zedd will be releasing his second studio album True Colors on May 19th.
We can expect to see a laundry list of collaborators and features like we saw on his last album with Ellie Goulding, Hayley Williams, Foxes, Bright Lights, Liz and more.
The hip-hop gods are dancing around right now as a Kendrick Lamar and Kanye West collaboration may have just been confirmed. While this snippet might be short, it manages to get us unbelievably excited for what's to come. This is also after it's been revealed that Kendrick has a writing credit on Kanye's upcoming album.
We hear the full 30 second verse from Kendrick Lamar fiercely going in on Kanye West's new song "All Day."
This is also just a few short weeks after Kanye publicly praised K-dot.
Montreal based SNAILS won't seem to stop sliming his way to the top. This year he's already released his Snailed It Mix: Volume 2 which has already garnered over half a million plays in under a month, and he's even just released his high energy electro single "Funk With Me" with Big Gigantic. Well today we have the release of his long awaited "King Is Back," which we've been hearing in live sets for the past few months. This single features rapper Big Ali who was the man responsible for starting the party on Snails' "Wild" single from last year. The song released through his home label of Kanniballen Records is one of his most brutal yet. Blending the borders of both trap and dubstep mixed with Big Ali's rapping leaves us with a certified bass anthem we should be hearing throughout the year. Listen to the full song below and pick up your copy in iTunes. Enjoy!

It seems that the rather secretive Frank Ocean has just announced his much anticipated third studio album, along with its title. He just shared the above photo on his website (Which is now temporarily down due to traffic), and his tumblr.
He posted this with the following caption
"'I got two versions. I got twoooo versions.' #ISSUE1 #ALBUM3 #JULY2015 #BOYSDONTCRY."
This sounds like we can expect his third album in July, and will be titled Boys Don't Cry. It also looks like there might be either mutliple parts to the release or alternate covers, or even an accompanying magazine like we see in the picture.
West coast EDM icon Kaskade who's known for keeping things more on the calm, melody filled side has just shown a new side. His newest original "Never Sleep Alone" incorporates some newer sounding inspirations from artists like Tchami and Oliver Heldens with some future house thumping bass drops. Of course he manages to stay true to his sound keeping the song full of bright melodies and colorful chords in his own signature way. You can listen to the full song below and pick up a copy through iTunes. Enjoy

New York based Prince Fox has quickly planted himself as an artist to watch out for over the past year by turning out nonstop remixes including Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" which ended up going viral, Florence + The Machine's "You've Got The Love", Kanye West's "All Of the Lights" and many more.
With TSIS having premiered most of his remixes up to this point, it was only right that we also premiere his debut original single "Wait Until Tomorrow" that will have you moving uncontrollably. Blending house, future bass, trap, indie and a splash of pop influence all smashed together is what adds up to make his own unique sound that sounds great. The vocals help complete the track and really tie it all together. Listen to the premiere of the song below and grab your free copy below.
