Pretty Lights just dropped off his latest song “The Day Is Gone” complete with a a video recap of his New Years Eve shows in New York this past year taking place at the historical Roseland Ballroom. He manages to convey such soul and emotion in each in every one of his songs almost making most other artists feel very fake and artificial. The gritty bass heavy edge clashes with the soulful vocals in all the right ways. This looks like quite the party to remember. Enjoy!

Yeah I didn’t think I would be posting a remix to Suit & Tie either, but then Dillon Francis managed to give his signature trap treatment to the pop hit. He does some heavy signture vocal sampling completely reworking Justin’s vocals into sounding more like a robot with some powerful 808s. Considering this is an official remix, Dillon will probably start becoming more of a house hold name. No set release date yet. What are your thoughts?

Today we get the latest original from the fresh movement, Aer. “Take It Wrong” is an acoustic powered anthem that brings nothing but good vibes. As both members grow up their sound continues to grow and get more defined. The chemistry between the rapping, chorus, and mild guitar plucking is unreal. These guys have really crafted an amazing sound you can listen to anytime. Sit back and enjoy!

The rising 22 year old Chicago producer Stratus just let loose his first single through Ultra Records after signing with them. “Alarm” is an insanely massive dubstep tune that starts off his Ultra run with a bang.

Expect to hear alot more from Stratus in the future and make sure to check out the official video above. Enjoy!

The annual “Hottest MC’s” from MTV has come around again, and Detroit based Danny Brown drops off a track to dimiss the entire list aptly titled #HottestMC. He delivers some powerful almost angry flow throughout the entire track potentially being driven by his lack of placement on the list. The beat produced by Harry Fraud featuring a mood setting sample from UK Amorphous Androgynous. As Danny himself states “That song wasn’t to diss nobody,” ”I just wanted to show niggas I can think of a #Bar or 2 lol.” And that he does. Sit back, enjoy, and wait for his upcoming OLD mixtape.
