Well that didn't take long! After recently lighting up BBC Radio 1 airwaves with a 2-hour takeover on Diplo and Friends, Dillon Francis jumps back in our minds by delivering a remix of French producer Madeon's "Imperium". The return of Dillon's moombahton prowess that was the featured theme on This Mixtape Is Fire is abundant yet again as he beefs up the synth line with a heavier sound, and adds a new cadence of drums to great effect. This flavorful remix will be available to purchase on August 28th, and you can stream the track below until then! Enjoy

Album leaks have become a common occurrence in the age of the internet, and they seem to be almost unavoidable for most artists. While some make a big fuss about leaks, The Weeknd himself leaked an 18-minute album preview following the surfacing of Beauty Behind The Madness, which is scheduled for an August 28 release via Republic.
Abel has been on an absolute tear on Billboard charts this year and it seems like you can’t even leave your house without having one of his tracks infiltrate your eardrums. He continues this trend on the new album which includes previous hits “Often,” “The Hills,” “Can’t Feel My Face,” along his Lana Del Rey collab titled “Prisoner,” which we featured earlier. Check out his album preview and support him by preordering on iTunes.

Vic Mensa continues his unbelievable stream of new music recently having dropped off his "Heat It Up" Freestyle, collab with Skrillex on "No Chill" and freestyle over Biggie's "Who Shot Ya" amongst many others this summer celebrating the recent singing to Roc Nation.
Today we get a song that takes us back to the laid back, verse filled style we heard in his older mixtape, INNANETAPE. “All That Shines” features a bouncy, electronic infused production that acts as the perfect soundtrack for Vic to spit non-stop, continuous verses with a sung chorus tying it all together. We hope to continue seeing this non stop flow of content. Enjoy!

Diplo has been a man on fire this summer having released two fire-ass tracks that are currently crushing the domestic and international radio charts; one being "Lean On" with his Major Lazer brotherhood and the other, "Where Are Ü Now," with Jack Ü co-caption Skrillex featuring Justin Bieber. Without a moment to spare, Diplo now might have another hit to serve with "Be Right There", a collaboration with Canadian producer Sleepy Tom that's received an official premiere ON Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 program. Swimming deep in a house-centered natatorium with some added wavy synths, we are left frantically hitting the repeat button while belting to lyrcis provided by Priscilla Renea . Take the plunge by streaming the releasing below and grab the single on August 28th via Mad Decent. Enjoy!
