Australian live act Atlas Bound has come onto the scene this past year with their unique indie electronic vibes and smooth vocals. Their most recent release, "Landed On Mars", has reached a wide audience in only 3 months of being released.
Today, the track has received a fresh infusion from fellow Australian artist Feki. He turned the original into a laid-back, mellow track that packs some hypnotizing vibes. He combines layers of manipulated vocals, lush synths, and textured percussion to give us an infectious take on the Sydney duo's original track. Stream the song, which was released on Next Wave Records, and grab a free download while also keeping an eye out for what these talented artists have in store. Enjoy!

LA based R&B singer Gallant is having a breakout year with his streak of releases on the Mind Of A Genius label alongside ZHU. One of the recent tracks, "Weight In Gold," looks to be Gallant's strongest song to date and has already started seeing remixes pop up, like Ta-Ku's official take on the song, which we featured a couple weeks ago.
Well, remixer extraordinaire, Louis Futon, who we've featured extensively through remixes of G-Eazy, ODESZA, Mos Def, Wiz Khalifa and much more, has stepped up to the plate and given this R&B ballad a whole new life. While keeping things soulful and leaving the vocals intact, this remix adds drums leading to a quavering bass line, and minimal glitchy vocals & synths. The remix does the incredible original justice, as he adds a uniquely seductive twists to perfectly compliment the belted-out vocals. Following up multiple festival stops including Coachella, Counterpoint, and Paradiso, Louis is prepping for his first headline tour with the first stop in Denver this month. Gallant is also set to support Sufjan Stevens on his tour later this year. See dates below. Enjoy!

The first single from Lana Del Rey's latest album Honeymoon was shared last month, showcasing a slow paced, very cinematic side of Lana. Well now we get the second single showcasing a very different side.
"High By The Beach" features a surprising electronic fueled production, packing a surprising chilled out trap style. The change of pace in the instrumental sets the tone for Lana to lay down her signature, drawn out, extra spacey vocals. This shows us a completely different side of Lana then we've ever seen, and we aren't complaining in the least. Listen below to the freshly shared song and enjoy!

Today we have a perfect lazy Sunday, feel good jam for your listening pleasure by Soulection’s Stwo. Ta-Ku recently enlisted the dreamy vocal talents of Alina Baraz on “Down For You," and now we see that she has the perfect voice to remix as Stwo takes on her collaborative track alongside Galimatias titled “Maybe” off their Urban Flora EP. This talented Soulection producer brings a sultry, atmospheric vibe that is a perfect rainy day tune as background rain and vinyl crackles set the mood for slow, melodic synths underneath some minimalist percussion and he even throws in a gong sample to round it out. Enjoy
