Frank Ocean took to Tumblr earlier this year to break his silence and announce a new album to be released this July. We now have a pleasant surprise to hold us over until he drops the album.
To catch us all by surprise, Major Lazer has utilized MØ's vocal abilities to cover Frank Ocean's “Lost,” and it works perfectly. The infectious singer MO took the world by storm and inspired countless remixes of her song "Don't Wanna Dance,” and continues to impress as she pays respect to the original on this cover. Diplo brought his A game on this irresistible instrumental to bring a new light to Frank’s hit as he’s reimagined the song as a Major Lazer style reggae, summertime jam.

Rising collaborative duo Hotel Garuda have established themselves as a group to keep an eye on as the respective producers Manila Killa and Candle Weather and have done some impressive work on their own.

Royal's "Passenger" is the title track off his recent EP that we premiered earlier this year, and now it's received a melodic deep house remix highlighting the original’s pleasant vocals.

Fetty Wap's radio smash "Trap Queen has become one of the most overplayed party songs which has led to a string of remixes including Autolaser's amongst others, but nothing quite compares for what we have today.

TSIS regulars Big Gigantic are in the middle of quite an impressive festival run that started earlier this year back at Ultra and has not stopped since with an epic closing set at Electric Forest recently (along with a surprise sunrise RV set). Well they have decided to indulge in the summer spirit and hit us up to debut a brand new 60 minute long Summer Mixtape. The mix features a very nice mixture of old and new summer ready tracks spanning from classics like Pretty Lights' "Finally Moving" to Big G's new collaboration with SNAILS, "Funk With Me". There are also two mysterious "ID" tracks in the mix, the first one sounds like a remix of Zedd's new song "Beautiful Now" featuring Jon Bellion done by an unknown remixer (Possibly Big G?). The second unknown track is just a few songs later, and truly sounds like the new GRiZ x Big Gigantic collaboration that they have been teasing during recent live shows.
The Mixtape comes on the heels of the band’s announcement of their fall North American headlining “Get On Up” tour, featuring support from The Floozies on most dates which you can find all dates below and a limited amount of pre-sale tickets through TSIS ticketing here.
