French producer Stwo, the downtempo / chill trap / future bass beatmaker, has carved a very refreshing sound that could be described as Cashmere Cat mixed with a blast of sexy R&B / Hip-hop vibes. We've heard his endlessly replayable remixes of The Weeknd's "Or Nah" and Cashmere Cat's "With Me" or his song "Syrup" among others. Today we have a free single from him "Aura" that is not apart of any project yet used as a giveaway to support his biggest run of US shows yet, a co-headline tour with Snakehips. He also has an upcoming EP slated for later this year, but has made it clear this is not on it. Listen to the infectious new track and grab a free download, look at the tour dates below, and enjoy!

An accurate set of words to describe the musical creations created by Australian producer Flume is often hard to put together simply due to the immense talent he displays with every release. With Flume's undertaking of Lorde's "Tennis Court" already touted as the potential remix of 2014, his eclectic style is at it again as he shifts focus to a track belonging to powerhouse Canadian indie rock group Arcade Fire. The single "Afterlife" still keeps its indie roots, but is treated to a collection of dreamy synth patterns and minimal house / bass vibes that move their way across the original to great effect. It's hard to pinpoint the exact genre classification, but then again I feel that Flume deliberately made it in this manner. You can stream the remix below until release details are known and above all… Enjoy!
