After a 3 year break from releasing music, Macklemore and producer Ryan Lewis have been building up steam towards their next album. The end their silence, the duo recently released "Downtown" as an upbeat genre blending song that was perfect for radio.
We see a much different, more serious side with the latest track "Kevin" featuring soul singer Leon Bridges, who has seen a quick rise to stardom this year. The song touches on addiction and prescription abuse offering more personal, deep subject matter than we saw with their last release. Everyone involved delivers a solid track, and one that has us looking towards the rest of the project, with no set date in place yet. Enjoy!

Long time TSIS featured DJ / producer Kap Slap who used to be known for his mashups has been able to stay relevant through consistent high quality mixes like his popular "Back To School Mix". Most recently, the New York DJ introduced his first ever "Summer Mix" and now he offers us his second seasonal mix just in time for winter called — you guessed it — "Winter Mix 2015."
The master of unexpected mixes continues to do what he does best; as he opens the latest with Backstreet Boys and Jack Ü. Rather than sticking to his usual progressive and electro house vibes though, Kap Slap switches things up by incorporating trap and future bass into the refreshing mix.
He's also giving his fans a special bonus by sneaking in the full version of his brand new single "Rewind" which will be officially released on Dec. 4th. Stream the Winter Mix below and grab a free copy so you can blast Kap Slap's newest mix throughout the holidays! Enjoy.

We'd like to welcome a new face to TSIS. Going simply by EDEN, the 19 year old Irish artist who both sings and produces has been making waves online this past year through a variety of online uploads and a recent End Credits EP that was just released with Mr. Suicide Sheep's label.
Today the young artist made the very bold move of covering "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson, one of the most iconic pop songs of all time. His audacious move paid off though as he managed to completely reimagine the song, delivering an instrumental packed full with a mixture of organic instruments and electronic influence. First starting with acapella harmonies, the song evolves as piano lines and guitar strumming get added to the track while a distorted 8-bit sounding breakdown reveals a throwback to his original breakout song "XO."
The harmonies and piano/guitar riffs act as the perfect background for his own vocals to shine through on- simutaneously paying homage to the originial song while offering his own brilliant spin. We are extremely excited to premiere this and also provide an exclusive free download. Enjoy!

Adele’s “Hello” is one of the most popular songs in the world right now thanks in part to the music video going viral. Well you may not realize that the song is actually so good that it can even help save racism and other undesired topics from your annual Thanksgiving gatherings as well.
Watch the outrageous video put together by the fine folks at Saturday Night Live, that will have you in tears. Enjoy!
