The always amazing Feed Me has done it again, surprising us this time with a rendition of Caribou's 'Back Home'. The UK Producer quoted on his Soundcloud saying “I have loved Caribou's music for a long time so I sang and produced this my own way for fun.”
A departure from his usual high energy style, Feed Me takes the original tracks more upbeat and light sound and twists in his own flare making it more dark and eerie. His signature synths are present and when layered over the drum pattern paired with his own vocals really make this quite an amazing cover. This reminds us of his also 2011 cover remix of Two Door Cinema club's "What You Know" and is hopefully a sign of more covers to come from Feed Me. Stream the song only for now and check back for a release or free download. Enjoy

Beyoncé's hot new single "Drunk In Love continues to stay on our radar with potentially the best rendition of the song yet with a surprising remix / cover from The Weekend complete with free download. The Weeknd breaks down the song and reconstructs it from the hot new background production to his completely new verses while still keeping the original hook lyrics in place. He manages to slip in some of his signature over the top lyrics like "the pussy's got some superpowers" and "I fuck my enemies" throughout. This is a complete change of pace from the recent festival remix of the song from Diplo from a couple days ago. Enjoy!
