Sam Smith has become the new most remixed artist ever in the past year, and we aren’t complaining thanks to his strong vocals inspiring some amazing pieces and today we have latest. His song “Leave Your Lover” has been flipped by rising Australian house producer Motez giving it a funky upbeat house twist. The vocals shine bright as they are chopped to perfection mixed with a thumping bass groove and piano line that will have you moving. No details on if we will be lucky enough to see a release or download here. Enjoy!
This reminds us of his also phenomenal remix of Ellie Goulding’s “Beating Heart” he released last year.

Childish Gambino is an artist who does not take his music videos lightly, delivering basically short films for almost every release like “Sweatpants” or “Telegraph Ave” among others. Today we get the latest from the rapper / singer / actor for one of his most recent songs “Sober” off the Kauai EP. He brings the song to life singing to a girl waiting for her take-out food. It borders the line of cheesy and comedy featuring some outrageous dance moves from Gambino. The setting also reminds us of the diner in the ‘Sweatpants’ music video, making us wonder if that was Donald’s intention for connecting his videos. Enjoy!

Joey Bada$$ has unveiled yet another single to follow the releases of "No. 99," "Big Dusty," "On & On," and "Curry Chicken" as today marks two weeks out from the release of his debut studio album, B4.DA.$$. As a Zane Lowe BBC 1 featured track, "Teach Me" has been dubbed "the hottest record in the world right now," and leaves us incredibly excited to hear this young Brooklyn rapper's forthcoming album. Teaming up with fellow Pro Era producer Chuck Strangers and New York’s ASTR provides for a horn laced beat that brings a higher energy level than we’ve seen previously from Joey. “Teach Me” serves as a bonus track off the album and features pop singer Kiesza on the amazingly catchy hook. This tune displays Joey's versatility as he successfully steps out of his comfort zone to create a hip hop dance song with a poppy feel.
