Delivering innovation that steps outside the norm is precisely what Norwegian producer Cashmere Cat has supplied the electronic music community since gaining attention throughout 2013 with a string of notable originals and remixes. Cashmere Cat's creativity is on display once again as he releases the highly anticipated Weddings Bells EP via trend setting label Lucky Me. The debut single "With Me" was a precursor for the new EPs tone, applying unique foundations of bass that are eventually warped and twisted around an array of eclectic percussion elements, melodic synth patterns and the unreal sampling makes this quite the enjoyable listen. While drawing from some future bass, trap and R&B among other genres, Cashmere Cat continues to reach uncharted territory with every release leaving us on our toes for what might be next. Stream the release below and purchase the EP today! Enjoy

The growing talents of Dutch native GANZ are on display as the Amsterdam based producer made a bold choice in flipping Flume's sensational remix of "Hyperparadise" by Hermitude. Keeping the signature smooth bass injections intact, GANZ restructured the breaks and added a smooth jazz section featuring a mean saxophone sample. Dare I say, we love this flip just as much as the original remix and haven't been able to stop replaying this track! Stream this exclusive premiere below and grab a free download to go. Enjoy
Also for everyone in London this weekend, GANZ will be playing at the Terrorhythm party at Plan B Basement this Friday 14th February right in London. Tickets and info for that here.

The buzz surrounding producer / DJ extraordinaire Skrillex and rapper Chance the Rapper unexpected time in the studio is the talk of the music world currently with the potential for future collaborations at stake (see above in studio alongside Mike Will Made It). Skrillex unleashed the first of their sessions at his intimate Brooklyn show apart of his Takeover tour last night. The production doesn't sound like your typical Skrillex track and is more of a hip-hop song as opposed to a dubstep banger with Chance's charismatic vocals abundant throughout the length of it. Regardless of this being a very rough quality camera video, it gives us the first sample of what sounds like some serious chemistry between the artists. Enjoy

This is quite easily one of the most anticipated collaborations to be released this year as two of Mad Decent's finest producers finally deliver what is tipped to be a festival anthem for 2014. DJ Snake, who has a growing list of massive collaborations coming out this year and Dillon Francis, who's approaching the final stages of releasing his debut artist album threw everything but the kitchen sink at their original "Get Low", which compliments both artists unique styles to a T. The Arabian nights foundation makes way for an insatiable mixture of moombahton and trap elements that wreak havoc all over the beat. Turn your speakers all the way up and stream this track below! Enjoy

Though much has changed over the years as our Boulder, Colorado friends Big Gigantic have grown in popularity, their specialty of producing timeless bass infused electro-soul / funk music that pays homage to jam band roots has only increased with experience. Producer and Saxophone player Dominic Lalli has left nothing behind as he delivers the groups' fifth studio album The Night Is Young hours before embarking on a massive winter tour alongside live drummer Jeremy Salken. The easily digestible album consists of eight tracks for the masses to bust the proverbial groove to whether it be listening amongst yourself or experiencing their legendary live shows. Outside of Big Gigantic's two singles "Touch The Sky" and "The Night Is Youg ft. Cherub" released leading up to the album, "Blue Dream" might take the claim as our favorite track on the album; capturing that signature funky soulful side of Big Gigantic with just the right amount of electro grit we can't get enough of. The release is available as a free download below and is also on iTunes. Enjoy

One of This Song Is Sick's favorite clothing companies is Colorado based company Akomplice Clothing who recently opened their newest office in Denver and launched a unique way of displaying their latest collection. This look-book captures the companies crossover into the electronic music world by exclusively highlighting Colorado producers and DJs. They brought GRiZ, Big Gigantic, Paper Diamond, Two Fresh, Michal Menert, Catch Lungs and myself (in the bucket hat, smoking) out to rock the latest gear in these photos. Akomplice did things in their own unique method and actually printed the photos into large banner form and had their street team wheat paste them all around Denver. The concept was very cool, and it turned out even better then you could have hoped. Look at the photos below and check the rest of them as well as purchase the items from the photos on the Akomplice Website. Connect with Akomplice on both Facebook & Twitter.

It comes with custom patchrwork, leather sleeves, detachable hood and more. You can see a sneak preview of the Jacket as seen in our Instagram photo here. Release details of the jacket coming soon.
Some artists choose to hide their identity from the publics eye, but today we have an exciting new artist who's even kept their artist name a mystery… at least for now. The artist made it clear that letting the music "speak for itself" was a top priority before anyone grew attached to the name or image. With that being said, we received a groove filled dance track with this unknown vocalist singing the lyrics to various Outkast's popular hits. The melodic deep house beat compliments the silky smooth vocals perfectly, creating one infectiously delightful track to play multiple times. Such mystery causes an unreal amount of curiosity, is this a completely new artist or some already established act? It sounds like it could have been produced by someone like Disclosure or Perseus.

We first got introduced to Mike Hawkins on his collaborative track "Hot Steppa" alongside Henry Fong and Toby Green that premiered late last year.

The song packs an infectious melody right out of the gate with some suspenseful builds leading to an epic percussion filled drop with a unique Middle Eastern twist. The song is brought to life in this official music video showing the progression of kids playing with Nerf guns to paintball guns to soldiers at war shooting real guns.
