His live sets incorporate some of the coolest instrumental looping as he expertly switches between keys, guitar, and bass in a funky, tropical style that’s incredibly unique and refreshing and is a must-see if you have the opportunity to check out one of his sets.

This irresistible remix brings FKJ’s signature keyboard and guitar riffs alongside a funky bassline to recreate Lianne’s popular tune into a brilliantly smooth summertime jam that will instantly put a smile on your face and bring you to your happy place.

So Rihanna released her newest single "Bitch Better Have My Money" earlier this year, and like most of her biggest songs, they proceeded to get remixed in just about every which way; we've seen takes from Diplo & Grandtheft, Flosstradamus, and heroBust just to name a few. Today we have something a little different. Producers Infuze & !llmind have joined forces to create, not a remix, but a full on cover of the huge hit; recreating every instrument and element from scratch. For the vocals they brought out Father Dude and rappers Skyzoo, K!NG Z3US, Yung Fusion and Emilio Rojas to provide a barrage of lethal verses with a soulfully sung flip of the chorus. The super team of artists leaves us with an outstanding, extremely unique recreation of the popular tune. Listen below to the premiere of the song and grab an exclusive free download. Enjoy!

The anticipation for Hudson Mowhawke’s sophomore album Lantern builds a little bit further with the release of his newest single "Scud Books" which is an instrumental track that is accompanied by a video. The music video is very unique like HudMo panning between slow motion explosions of Orchids blossoming and him turning up at live shows for an interesting combination to say the least. “Scud Books” feels like the first all out party starter of the album in the vein of his past supergroup TNGHT.

Maarten Hoogstraten from Bingo Players has been keeping the act going very strong after the very unfortunate passing of his musical partner and most importantly his friend Paul Bäumer. BP has since released both "Knock You Out" and "Nothing To Say" which are both amazing dance records that only have us anxiouslly awaiting what's next. Well Maarten has hit us up to share a 50 track playlist of songs that have inspired him and Paul in their music making process from the early days all the way to today ranging from classics like Daft Punk, Moby, The Chemical Brothers and more. Listen to the musical journey of a playlist below. Enjoy.
Here are some words from Maarten himself:
"These tracks have all inspired Bingo Players in the music making process. These are all songs that myself and Paul listened to throughout the years and as you listen to the playlist most will be able to hear where we took some of our inspiration, especially for early Bingo Players records like "Devotion" , "Tom's Diner" and "When I Dip". We continued to carry those influences into later records like "Cry" and I've been playing around with some of those classic sounds in my newer productions. I’ve always loved French house and old rave tracks, they provide great inspiration and remind me of my younger days, sneaking into raves underage and having wild nights with friends."
LA producer Jauz just won't stop the stream of new content, following up the recent free "Feel The Volume VIP," his re-remix of Dillon Francis' remix of deadmau5, or his remix of Tiga's "Bugatti" and more in 2015 alone. Well today we have his latest and it's a remix of Rusko's 2007 hit "Jahova." He has taken the classic dubstep hit and has transformed it into a beefed up future house heater full of catchy melodies, punchy drums and heavy signature Jauz basslines that will come close to blowing out any speakers if you're not careful. Stream this new song below and grab a free download below compliments of Jauz. Enjoy

An outrageously good new Kendrick Lamar song just appeared online titled “Partynauseous” that has a surprising feature from Lada Gaga. She provides some effected vocals over a spacey beat with powerful hi-hats and electronic textures which leads to Kendrick coming in and spitting an unruly, yet laid back verse with a flow that couldn't be mistaken for anyone else. There is no details or idea on if this will see an official release or not. Listen below, share thoughts in the comments and enjoy!

Well it looks like Drake and Beyoncé have finally linked up on a track. The new, sure to be massive, song is called "Can I" – and it just leaked online. The song features some effort-and-flawless verses from Drake and a smooth sung verse from singer Sal Houdini. Although Beyonce may only supply a small line, "Can I. Baby", her distictive voice adds a powerful and minimal edge. While this might be a leak, it sounds pretty done and full, so not sure how it could have appeared. Either way listen below and we'll keep you posted of the official release. Enjoy!

Jamie XX Releases New Official Version Of “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)” Ft Both Young Thug & PopcaanPosted in Chill by Jake | Tags: Hip-Hop, Jamie XX, Popcaan, young Thug
We’re quickly approaching the June 1 release of Jaime XX’s debut solo album, In Colour, and now we get to hear the official version of one of the most anticipated tracks off the album.
We previously heard a leaked version of this new track “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times),” the unlikely collaboration with rising Atlanta hip hop star Young Thug, and now we have the official version featuring Jamaican dancehall artist, Popcaan. Jaime XX strays away from the sound he’s become known for with The XX and delivers a unique summertime hit that surely evokes good vibes and will have you repeatedly clicking replay. The soft production on this track uses a warm, soulful sample that unexpectedly works well alongside Young Thug’s screeching signature vocals over the melodic beat with thumping bass and is all brought together by Popcaan's added refreshing, reggae infused hook. Keep an eye out for one of the most anticipated albums of the year. Enjoy!
SNAILS has quickly become one of the most exciting artists in the bass world and has just unleashed his latest release. This adds to the already eventful 2015 SNAILS has been having with the release of his collaboration with Skrillex and Diplo on their Jack U album, a free collab remix with Brillz on "Crazy", a collab with Big Gigantic on the song "Funk With Me", and his recent monstrous solo single "King Is Back".
He just announced a forthcoming #FREETHEVOMIT EP set to release next month for FREE, named after his signature brand of electronic music Vomitstep. The idea of giving out the entire release as a free download is to thank all of his fans which is something us here at TSIS are massive supporters of.
The first single from the EP is "VMPR", an electro weapon that has been getting played out over the past year by SNAILS, DJ Snake, Dillon Francis, Zeds Dead amongst many more. The song is structured like an electro house tune, but delivered in SNAILS' signature extra weird style. He tastefully uses a vocal sample from The Smashing Pumpkin's song "The World Is A Vampire" which really helps complete the track.
SNAILS has also just revealed the dates for his biggest tour yet, SNAILIN USA Tour, Pt. 2. You can see all the dates below and grab tickets through his website here. Listen below to the song and grab a free download from his website. Enjoy!

This has has us anxiously counting down the days to hear the rest of the release. You can stream below until a download becomes available. Enjoy!
