[PREMIERE] “Relax” Receives House Cover From New Producer Flush Just In Time For Zoolander 2 [Free Download]Posted in Bangin, Chill, Uncategorized by Aaron Rogers | Tags: Cover, Flush, frankie goes to hollywood, Relax
We had never heard of Flush before, in fact, it looks like no one has yet. Though after a member of his team reached out to us, we were immediately intrigued by his raw talent with Flush's cover of "Relax." And since there is almost zero information about the new artist available, we reached out to Flush to hear what he had to say.
"I want to recapture the lost spirit of dance music, music that is alive and loose as opposed to stiff and robotic. Embracing musical imperfections is the only way to end up with something that's human."
Serving as his introduction to the world, "Relax" does exactly as Flush mentioned above. Manipulating the quintessential 80s song to create a modern electro jam, the funk-house musician plays live drums, bass, guitar, and saxophone to provide the track with its refreshingly organic feel. Most will know the original song from the movie Zoolander where Derek Zoolander is hilariously brainwashed by Mugatu (Will Ferrell) into assasinating the prime minister of Malaysia. Check out "Relax" below and try not to say in Mugatu's voice, "It's that damn Flush! He's so hot right now!" after listening.
Stream the full cover below and enjoy!

Legendary British musician David Bowie tragically passed away just 3 days ago after his long battle against liver cancer. Bowie's impact on the music industry was almost immeasurable, his avant garde style helped shape the nature of rock and roll and art as a whole for years to come, influencing a wide range of pop and rock musicians and many more.
Lido has now decided to pay tribute to Bowie with his cover of the 1969 hit "Space Oddity." Originally featuring acoustic guitar, soft drums, and violin, Lido adds his own modern twist to the track with whirling tones and celestial synth effects that perfectly adhere to the space theme as well as his own vocals. This new cover goes to show just how far reaching David Bowie's influence is, impacting even contemporary electronic artists such as Lido. Stream his salute to Bowie below and check out a behind the scenes look of the making of his latest EP the Passion Project while you're at it. Enjoy.

The electronic music festival cruise with over 4,000 people we've written about quite a few times known as Holy Ship! tends to be full of a lot of incredible "had to be there" moments from once in a lifetime B2B sets, surprise guests, DJs playing in elevators and more. Well on the January cruise that just commenced last weekend, third year attendee GRiZ decided to help close out the weekend following his 2 sets by doing something unique. He started a pied piper march of artists (including the ODESZA horn players) and ship attendees from one side of the ship to the other playing "When The Saints Came Marching In"
Then once he arrived in his destination which was the ship's buffet cafeteria he then performed a horn only cover of Drake's "Hot Line Bling" with help from the horn players from ODESZA's live band. It ends with a crowd of people the gathered chanting "HOLY SHIP! HOLY SHIP! HOLY SHIP!"
It captures the craziness, breakdown of barriers between artist and fan, and overall vibe of the unique experience that is Holy Ship!.
This was also a throwback to when he first did this stunt with Skrillex 2 years on the ship playing the Sexy Saxyman melody.
