Seven Lions recently announce a contest to remix his “Days to Come” song, and Coyote Kisses to a stab at it.. and created something incredible. As the description states “Decided to take a break from finishing up all our originals and try something we’ve never done before, incorporating more “live” instrumentation. The result is something more rock & roll/different. Enjoy :]” Listen and you will understand. They fuse live instrumentation with electronic elements like I never thought possible. The result is really something ground breaking, and I really hope to hear more songs in this fashion from Coyote Kisses. Besides incorporating live instruments the song maintains a great blend of the sweet melodies and just the right amount of smooth bass. You can vote for this song here. Enjoy!

Mac Miller just did a completely unexpected cover of indie / folk artist Bright Eyes. He covered one of my favorite tracks sung by Coner Oberst aka Bright Eyes, “First Day Of My Life”. Mac didn’t turn it into a hip-hop remix sampling the beat, he covered it. Never heard Mac sing like this. And that’s Mac playing the guitar, complete with random solo at the end. Chill out, enjoy!

Today I’ve got dubstep turned acoustic + piano.. done well. It’s the track “Killin‘ It” by the Chicago bass trio Krewella covered by Cry Wolf. Now typically these guys make heavy dubstep and electro of their own, but decided to break out the piano and throw down some passionate vocals. Justin Phillips singing really lets you hear the vocals in a completely different light. I hope more artists decide to do covers this well to other dubstep anthems. Enjoy!

So if you like Eminem or Drake’s latest single “Over”, which I posted a banger remix of here earlier, then you are going to love this track.. and if not, there’s still a pretty good chance you’re going going love it. It’s Eminem’s latest track, rumored to be off his upcoming album. It’s a freestyle over Drake’s “Over”. It’s got that real sick signature Eminem flow. Some people lost interest in him, myself partly being one of those people, but this track gets me stoked for his new album. Props to mattj and dholtz for suggesting this!
