Last year we featured Catch Lungs song “Gotta Kill This” with Danny Brown which helped raised the profile of the aspiring rapper. Well today we get the latest from one of Colorado's most exciting rising artists with the song “Fly Me Away.” It features some mellowed out, spacey production that sets the tone for Catch to deliver his signature flow that improves with every track. His outrageous, slightly offensive lyrics are really what helps set the rising rapper apart from the pack. It’s a track you have to give a few spins to fully soak it all in. Listen below to the premier of the song and grab an exclusive free download for our readers. Enjoy!

NYC based producer, and newcomer TJANI, who we first debuted with his incredible remix of Cut Copy's "Meet Me In A House Of Love", is back with another hit. This time he has taken on remixing rising fellow New York based indie artist Halsey and her song "Hurricane." He has completely reimagined the song, speeding it up to a house tempo, adding minimalalistic percussion, and a catchy melody that will be stuck in your head for hours. He lets Halsey's smooth vocals shine bright seemingly untouched for the perfect final touch. There is no set release date for this remix but you can enjoy the premiere of the full stream below. Enjoy!

It’s typical for rap producers to sample classic tunes on their new productions, but it’s not so common for a rapper to simply use an original song to just rap on top of. That is exactly what we have here with Wiz Khalifa’s new track “Good For Us” which was released via video where he spits fresh bars over Marvin Gaye’s classic cut “Sexual Healing.” This timeless soul song actually provides for a wonderfully smooth rap beat in which Wiz comes in with a solid verse that will surely get you in summertime mood. Kick back, roll one up, and enjoy!
