Australian live act Atlas Bound has come onto the scene this past year with their unique indie electronic vibes and smooth vocals. Their most recent release, "Landed On Mars", has reached a wide audience in only 3 months of being released.
Today, the track has received a fresh infusion from fellow Australian artist Feki. He turned the original into a laid-back, mellow track that packs some hypnotizing vibes. He combines layers of manipulated vocals, lush synths, and textured percussion to give us an infectious take on the Sydney duo's original track. Stream the song, which was released on Next Wave Records, and grab a free download while also keeping an eye out for what these talented artists have in store. Enjoy!

Ahead of the release of The Weeknd's highly anticipated forthcoming album Beauty Behind The Madness, one of the most hyped tracks off the project has surfaced on the internet! “Prisoner” features none other than Lana Del Rey, and just as we hoped, these two crooners have an unreal level of chemistry as their duet brings a female perspective on the otherwise all-male album. The track starts off slow and builds to a catchy, yet sorrowful and heartfelt hook with the typical menacing, eerie production going back to the sound from Abel's mixtape days. The two sadly reflect on their lifestyle in this track and Lana comes in and offers her slick falsetto vocals to round out the track and it ends with Lana’s spoken word putting the song in perspective. Stream the song below and enjoy.

The Weeknd's song "Can't Feel My Face" is one of the most catchy songs we've heard all year, and TSIS regulars Dzeko & Torres have stepped up and given it an official remix that couldn't be more fit to take down festivals. They've kicked the energy in high gear while managing to highlight the unbelievable vocals, leading up to a melody filled drop. Here's what they had to say about the track:
"The second we heard the original track we knew we were gonna wanna somehow play it in our sets." – Dzeko & Torres
