Drezo has accumulated quite the following over the years. But since Jauz started repping Drezo's remix of Drowning Pool's "Bodies" during his live sets, Drezo quickly became one of the most talked about new producers. We last featured the LA producer for his remix of SNAILS and heRobust's "Pump This" and now he finally drops off the official version of "Bodies."
Turning the gritty original into a hard-hitting house remix, Drezo utilizes the intense vocals to deliver his own unique take on the song. Though we initially heard the song after Jauz posted a slightly viral video from one of his recent shows which included the song in his set, Drezo gives us the full quality version today. Check out the grimey song below and grab that free download.

Today we have the pleasure of introducing a talented rising hip-hop producer Boathouse, residing on Chicago based SoundScape studios, which houses the Closed Session label. Originally from Minneapolis, he was actually the engineer behind the Based Freestyle mixtape that brought together Chance The Rapper and Lil B last fall.
While his first EP, Girl, was solely instrumentals, his new Hibernation EP has guest features on three of the four tracks to deliver a more complete package. The title is fitting as Boathouse explains the EP “came from a place of restlessness. The confinement of the cold allowed me to hole up in the studio and focus my energy into a project meant to touch those who felt like me.” Each of the songs carry the same vibe throughout the project as he goes on to say “the aesthetic is definitely inspired by the season and the feeling of being inside when it's cold outside. If you find yourself stuck inside like us, let this EP be the soundtrack to your grind, your reflection, your rest, or however you choose to spend your time in Hibernation." The the beats are spacey and electronic, yet they have hip hop roots with atmospheric synths adding depth.”
Boathouse kicks it off with “Far,” his collaboration with Kweku Collins & Kipp Stone, which shows off his production talents with intruding, distant sounding melodies along with rumbling 808s and shuffling drums laying the foundation for the swaggy singing and an on-point verse. The EP moves into a more trippy and seductive direction with “Twin Flame,” as the R&B based track kicks off with the sexy backing vocals of Drea Smith with skittering hi hats and dark, psychedelic keys. He then throws in a solid instrumental track “Coming Into Focus” with his with signature off-timed, fascinating drumbeat and floating background synths. Ending the EP is his collaboration alongside Allan Kingdom on “Lavish,” in which Allan offers some short raps while singing catchy lyrics in tune with the hard hitting, atmospheric beat.
Grab a free download below of the EP and some other goodies and keep an eye on this up and coming producer!

Skrillex has managed to stay at the forefront of music these last few weeks, airing the first episode of his new residency at Beats 1 Radio and releasing the OWSLA Worldwide Broadcast compilation as well as asking fans to help him finish his unreleased song "Bug Hunt." Skrillex now makes headlines yet again for his post Super Bowl set.
Skrillex vitually took over the city as fans were able to catch the world touring producer in the tiny Regency Ballroom for free. At the show, Skrillex partnered with the streaming app go90 to air the epic 90 minute set for the whole world to enjoy. Of course, the set included never before heard content from artists like Marshmello, Valentino Khan, and Skrillex himself. Stream the set below and download the go90 app to view the full concert.

Check out the tracklist after the jump.
Haywyre gave us a taste of his upcoming LP Two Fold Pt. 2-–which follows up 2014s Two Fold Pt. 1—with a live performance video of "Endlessly" only to continue the hype with the crazy good "Do You Don't You" shortly after that. Both releases had us eager to hear the project in full. Now finally, that day has come. The producer and multi-instrumentalist brings us Two Fold Pt. 2 today via BitTorrent.
In this new age of rabid consumption and shortened attention spans, Haywyre offers a refreshingly cohesive, conceptual album. The project has Haywyre exhibiting his ability to convey a vast array of emotion and styles as he rocks his signature synthesizer almost like a guitar. Though the project delves from deep house tracks like "Impulse" to new age funk jams like "Memory," an overarching spaced-out theme continues throughout. With this incredible 9 track LP, it's safe to say Haywyre is here to stay. Head over to BitTorrent to download the project along with a ton of free goodies. We recommend taking a seat and enjoying this one start to finish.
