There is little known about up and coming LA artist Gallant, apart from the fact that he is the first label mate with ZHU on Mind of a Genius. He’s been making some serious waves with new breakout singles “Open Up” and “Talking In Your Sleep,” and now he’s back at it with a cover of Foo Fighter’s popular classic “Learn To Fly.” Gallant really makes the song his own by reimagining and recreating the tune with soft, minimal production. He even sings with higher notes than the original; his incredibly soulful vocals making for a uniquely beautiful cover that sounds very different from the original. Keep an eye on this rising artist and enjoy!

Louis Futon has become a TSIS favorite over the past year or so; turning out non stop amazing tunes, his 2015 releases are proving to be especially exciting. He released a free 7 track Louis Futon EP at the beginning of the year which has now been followed up with viral remixes of G-Eazy's "Let's Get Lost" and Phony PPL's "End Of The Night", and now we get the latest.
Today he ventures into some new heavy, bass filled territory with his latest release "Oakland Tho".

The Weeknd has been fairly quiet since the release of his first true radio breakout “Earned It,” which was originally for the 50 Shades Of Grey soundtrack. Abel has now unleashed a brand new track titled “The Hills” alongside a music video that has been previously performed live, and was thought to be titled “Mood Music.”
The Weeknd never fails to deliver captivating music videos and this latest video is no exception. Eerie, dark visuals set the tone perfectly for the song. Abel emerges from a car crash, which then engulfs in a fiery explosion while he walks away from the crash as he offers his explicit, sensual crooning until he ultimately ends up in a strange bedroom with multiple women. Enjoy.
