Snoop Dogg’s ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot’ Just Received An Epic Trap Remix From Tim Gunter

It's always risky giving older tunes a modern twist yet when pulled off properly can pay off well. Snoop Dogg's "Drop It Like It's Hot" has been brought back to life in all it's glory thanks to newcomer producer Tim Gunter. He's dropped us off a trap styled remix packing fully new drums and a funky drop we didn't expect. I could see this getting support from lots of DJs which makes sense since why Tim created the bootleg remix for Benzi's Diplo and Friends guest mix. Listen to the remix below and grab a free download. Enjoy!

Adidas and their artist collaboration initiative Songs From Scratch has brought together the eclectic production talents of Aussie native Chet Faker with the promising vocal prowess of DMV rapper GoldLink for an exciting release. "On You" represents a story about a girl, a really attractive girl, which allows both artists to pour their thoughts and experiences into the production. Chet crafts up a melodic R&B foundation with clever percussion aesthetics and future sounding appeal for GoldLink to splash verses on-top in a sultry manner going back and forth in the tempo of the lyrics. No news on release date for the single yet, but we can announce a forthcoming deluxe edition of GoldLink's standout The God Complex album is on its way July 22nd for digital download. Stream "On You" in full below and watch the creative process of both Chet and GoldLink in the studio via the behind-the-scene video as well. Enjoy

RLGrime-2

The recent news of genre bending powerhouse producer / DJ RL Grime's releasing his first full-length studio album this year on the WeDidIt Records has the internet going nuts over what is anticipated to be a massive collection of original music. The albums debut track, "Core", features a relentless bass heavy beat full of middle eastern influence via an eerie synth pattern, 808 knocks, and an overall cinematic flavor you can't deny. The song comes complete with an edgy music video depicted in animated form as a trio of kittled out Apache helicopters partake in combat with an unknown, nuclear force. Going back to the album, we know RL Grime has been in and out of the studio with rapper Big Sean and reputable producer Noah Breakfast, and we can say for certain that the electronic music world will be turned upside down when his debut album is delivered in full later this year. You can stream and purchase a digital download of "Core" below and stay tuned for more information regarding the album as it becomes available!

artworks-000083155779-u1t34y-t500x500

A track we are sure to lift your mood and spirits is prominent UK-based duo Snakeships newest original release. The infectious nature of "Days With You" is too much at times as the guys create the proper blend of chill house vibes with an unsuspecting, yet delightful hip-hop feel. This future sounding mixture is further enhanced by Sinead Harnett, such promising set of pipes as she sings a sweet set of lyrics over the beat. With a strong abundance of summer time allure throughout the track, this leaves Snakeships with an unbeaten record of not disappointing on any release. We got caught up in how good the track was and overlooked making the post live since the songs surface a few days back. You can look forward to the Sweater Beats remix of this song getting premiered on TSIS later this week. Grab a copy through iTunes today and above all… Enjoy

Sam Smith and his solo career have been exploding over the past fewmonths after being introduced to most the world by his powerful vocals on Disclosure's "Latch". Sam's solo single "Stay With Me" has been flipped upside down thanks to rising young producer / DJ Throttle out of Melborune, Australia who entered our radars with his unstoppable remix of Avicii's "You Make Me". He's completely reconstructed the song for this remix while stepping in a new funkier direction with some disco influence. The result turned out great and Throttle has been nice enough to pass this one out as a free download. Enjoy!
