Today we have a funky remix of the lead single "Comfortable" from rising Swedish star Oliver Nelson, the guy who brought the unreal remix to Viceroy's "While We're In Love".

Some artists choose to hide their identity from the publics eye, but today we have an exciting new artist who's even kept their artist name a mystery… at least for now. The artist made it clear that letting the music "speak for itself" was a top priority before anyone grew attached to the name or image. With that being said, we received a groove filled dance track with this unknown vocalist singing the lyrics to various Outkast's popular hits. The melodic deep house beat compliments the silky smooth vocals perfectly, creating one infectiously delightful track to play multiple times. Such mystery causes an unreal amount of curiosity, is this a completely new artist or some already established act? It sounds like it could have been produced by someone like Disclosure or Perseus.
Who do you think this song could be produced by? Leave a comment below.

The song has an unreal melodic bassline that propels it along acting as the perfect soundtrack for Ellie to lay down some bone chilling vocals. The song defintely captures a more experimental side of Ellie as opposed to more more radio friendly stuff. It is actually a cover of Midnight Star’s 1986 ‘Midas Touch’ they made their own. This will be released apart of her upcoming Halcyon Days Deluxe Edition featuring a rather large 33 songs. You can pre-order the release now and listen to the full stream below. Enjoy!

Chicago to LA electronic trio Krewella has been making waves since their Play Hard EP last fall and dominating all the electronic festivals including Ultra and EDC. They have now have released “Live For The Night”, their first single off their debut major label album release on Columbia Records, set for a Fall release. The synths, bass and melodies are so much more beefy then anything they have previously released creating a heavier more agressive sound. This song manages to brings their live show energy through to song form. Love the new direction. It’s safe to say this is the groups new “Alive”. Enjoy.
We have also included a lyric video for the song shot in Chicago at Spring Awakening Music Festival a few weeks back. You can also see a few cameos of the new Thissongissick Hat getting worn by Rain Man and some of the Krewella Krew.
