Flume's latest single "Smoke & Retribution" surprised with an unexpected feature from California rapper Vince Staples and from singer Kučka. Well the incredible new track now gets a future bass / trap makeover from Ekali.
Aside from one feature on ODESZA's No Sleep – Mix.09, Ekali is a brand new artist to the site. His unique take on Flume's most recent song had us listening in awe. Flipping the track on its head, Ekali brings in thumping tuba punches and grandios synth layers only to strip it all away in favor of a minimal trap section fitted with gurgling tones. He then somehow manages to smoothly bring back the former, brighter section as Vince Staples' verse comes in at a down-pitched timbre.
It looks like we'll be hearing back from Ekali in just 3 weeks, see what he had to say for yourself below. For now, tune into his epic remix of "Smoke & Retribution."
I know this is my first upload in about 5 months – I promise I won't keep you waiting that long again. Next track up on my page in 3 weeks – G Jones X Ekali.

Chicago production duo Autograf have kept a nice flow of colorful original content with their success following “Dream,” “Metaphysical,” and “Running.” Now they’ve just finished their new Future Soup EP and have shared another vibrant original tune as the title track off the forthcoming project.
“Future Soup” brings a prominent, funky, deep bass line that rumbles throughout the track and really kicks in during the chorus. The house drums compliment the synth placements and infectious baselines while Patrick Baker's vocals are a nice combo alongside the catchy instrumental as this first track is already sounding like a hit! While their signature sound is apparent, they bring a new element on this track and we can’t wait to hear the entire 5 track EP due on March 11th. Stream their new track below and catch them on their Metaphysical Tour ; see the dates after the jump.

Quickly becoming one of the most exciting trap producers out there, NGHTMRE has been a site regular through an endless stream of releases. We last heard from the LA producer on his collabs with Flosstradamus on "Lighters Up" and Boombox Cartel on "Aftershock". Now the LA based beat maker returns with a brand new original "Burn Out."
With the track, NGHTMRE also gives us some very exciting news. The song is actually a cut off of his forthcoming project the NGHTMRE EP. "Burn Out" is just one of the two songs that NGHTMRE has decided to bless us with today. The other track, "Prelude," is a brief 1:40 minute piano ballad that will serve as the intro to the project. As "Prelude" comes to a dreamy close, "Burn Out" then slowly but surely erupts into an explosion of booming bass and jolting drums sure to bring listeners back into NGHTMRE's world of trap.
Expect to hear the NGHTMRE EP in full on its scheduled 3/25 release date. As always though, we'll be sure to keep you posted! For now, enjoy the TSIS premiere of "Burn Out" and grab a free download.

Last fall we covered an Attlas remix of Led Zepplin’s “Ramble On” that came as a pleasant surprise. Now we have the premiere of this producer’s latest mix and we’re excited to share it with you!
Littered with vocal samples, this new hour long, chilled out mix was made as a thank you for all the positive feedback he’s gotten on his earlier released ‘cinematic’ mix series. Serving as great background music, Storyline Vol. 1 is a chill house mix that can be the perfect background soundtrack for all settings as the hour long mix brings a refreshing vibe throughout. This mix's storyline in words from Attlas “goes in and out of perspectives, but hopefully illustrates fragments of a larger, cohesive picture. I've tried to make sure that all tracks involved get an 'ATTLAS edit' to a degree, something to keep this listen in its own little world. Dive in with glass or mug of your favourite indulgence, and I'll see you all soon!” With a tracklist including original tracks, Bjork, Drake, Ryan Adams and more, he’s effortlessly woven together a mix filled with relaxing vibes that will surely put you in a good mood. Check out the tracklist after the jump and enjoy!
