We first heard Baauer's new single "One Touch" feat AlunaGeorge a couple of weeks ago when he first released the VIP version of the track. Today, the original comes to light but with a new face on the song, "No Flex Zone" rising rap duo Rae Sremmurd. "One Touch" packs some unique drums and seductive melodies that lay perfectly with AlunaGeorge and Rae's vocals to truly make this one of our favorite Baauer tracks to date.
Regarding working with AlunaGeorge, Baauer recently told the The Fader, "I recorded Aluna over a year ago, when we first met… The track I gave her was so basic and had no chord progression or anything so she said 'you gotta give me something to work with' and made that the intro. I held on to the track for a while and changed it about 1000 times. Fast forward about a year, I was in Vegas with Swae and Slim (Rae Sremmurd) recording them rapping over the GTA Vloading screen song. It was incredible. The next night, back in New York, I put the Aluna and Rae verses together just for fun… and it sounded real good. :D"
You will find this song on Baauer's upcoming EP "ß". "One Touch" also comes as a free download when you Pre-order your copy through iTunes available today.

Combining the soulful side of hip-hop with electronic elements is something that Pretty Lights first perfected, then artists like GRiZ and Gramatik carved their own lanes. The next "electro-soul" artist on the rise is most definitely TSIS favorite Manic Focus. Our appreciation for this Minneapolis to Chicago transplant runs deep as TSIS has premiered his first 3 albums Definition Of The Rhythm, Expanding Mind and Distant Perspective. Today we get the next chapter of Manic Focus with his latest album Cerebral Eclipse being released through GRiZ's new record label Liberated Music and is available in full today, as a 100% free download on top of iTunes and Spotify.
After a first few listen throughs it's abundantly clear that Cerebral Eclipse is without a doubt Manic Focus' best work to date. The 10 track album manages to stay true to the wobbly, spacey, funk-filled signature sound of Manic Focus, yet explores quite a bit of uncharted territory. The collaborations and features are strong, including "Life Goes On" with GRiZ and "Bumpin' in the Voodoo" with Dominic Lalli of Big Gigantic that have already surfaced, and "Space Scholar Synthesis" which is previously unreleased with Michal Menert. The feature list doesn't end there, Focus also recruited fellow Chicago locals Prob Cause and Eryn Kane on "Trail Blazin" and The Coop on "Travelin In My Mind". He even brought in NYC based drummer from Conspirator on "We Can Fly" which is another winner on the album. Cerebral Eclipse in it's entirety is a smooth listen blending chill and heavy elements seamlessly; quite the milestone in the booming career of the soulful artist. Listen to the record in full below, grab a free download, and if you feel inclined pick up your copy through iTunes. Enjoy!

The hype surrounding producers Skrillex and Diplo under their new outfit as Jack U couldn't be higher since the collaboration's announcement. Recently we've gotten to hear what these two have been producing; from the first single "Take U There" featuring singer Kiesza released earlier this month to a two hour mix on BBC Radio 1Xtra this past weekend. Both producers have hinted at some form of official Jack U release bigger then a single, stating different facts through twitter and interviews, ranging from either a mixtape, an EP, or even a full album.
As we've covered, Skrill and Diplo took over the Diplo and Friends radio show this weekend for a special Jack U two hour mix debuting quite a few unreleased new songs; with collaborations ranging from 2 Chainz to AlunaGeorge. One track in particular that caught our ears was a collaboration with Montreal's newest bass icon and growing TSIS favorite, SNAILS. The track is currently untitled still as "ID".
This only further cements SNAILS as one of the most exciting new names in bass music. The collaboration, while surprising, isn't entirely unexpected considering Skrillex's support for SNAILS this year; OWSLA released two anthems by the up-and-coming producer, "Wild" and "Pump This”. The debut of the Jack U track only adds to SNAILS breakout year now having collaborated with two of the most influential figures in electronic world.
Listen below to the preview of the song via a clip from the Jack U Diplo and Friends mix. It is one of the most brutal and epic songs I have heard in quite a while. The energy behind this track is highlighted by the insanely intrecate and strange sounds that are the woven melody. Blending so many genres from trap to dubstep to reggae leaving us with a completely new genre we can only call “Jack Snails” or maybe "Snail U", this untitled track gets us more and more excited for what's to come. Let us know what you think of this monster below. As always, enjoy!

Sound Remedy is a producer we've been featuring for years, starting with his Nirvana and Neil Young bootleg remixes back in 2012 and he has not stopped since. The man best known for his remixes has definitely stepped up to the plate with his latest original "Victory" featuring vocalist EVVY. The song blends elements of melody, dubstep, indie, and electro all at a mid paced 112 bpm tempo that could only be described as Remedy's signature sound. The song is full of upbeat melodies that lay perfectly with EVVY's vocals adding up to potentially the strongest Sound Remedy original song to date. If he has more tracks like this in the works the electronic world is in for a real treat. You can pick up your copy of the song through iTunes where it is now available. Enjoy!
