Larger-than-life producer Dillon Francis is an incredibly busy man. When this eccentric DJ isn't hard at work on his forthcoming album, Money Sucks, Friends Rule, he is usually entertaining the world with his sold out performances and ridiculously hilarious Instagram videos. This tune serves as a re-mastered version of the popular track "Master Blaster," and brings us a more complete, rich sound. In Dillon's words: "“IN MASTA BLASTA 2.0" I CHANGED THE KICK PATTERN TO 4×4 AND IN MY OPINION BEEFED IT UP WAAAAY MORE.” Stream the song below and grab a free download thanks to Dillon. Enjoy

With acts like Australian producer Thomas Jack in this world, we will never escape the summer-time vibes even if colder temperatures are upon us! Having drawn inspiration from a recent trip to the shores of Mexico, TJ channeled his skills and applied a delightful touch to accomplished musician Ben Sollee's latest single “Letting Go”. Loads of tropical goodness and chill house elements are reconstructed around Ben’s voice, making this remix something you are going to be playing over and over again. Now that his visa issues are finally sorted out, Thomas Jack is officially stateside (as you can see in his outrageous video below) for a string of Endless Summer shows with good friend Kygo with tickets for select cities still available here. Stream and download this free release below and above all… Enjoy

So when Tom played his US return show at Webster Hall this past weekend, he closed out the show by doing the unthinkable and taking his shoe off and drinking a beer out of it. Properly called a "Shoey", it looks like this might be something we can expect from ole Tom when he hits a city near you. 

Raury – God’s Whisper (Flosstradamus & Aryay Remix) : Must Hear Chill Trap / Future Bass Remix [Free Download]

Screen Shot 2014-09-23 at 1.24.10 PM

The kings of turning things up continue to showcase diversity in their production as Flosstradamus unleash a brand new collaborative remix from a rather unlikely source. Following up on their mellow original "Rebound", Flosstradamus drew inspiration from emerging Atlanta rapper Raury and partnered up with Chicago producer Aryay to transform their single "God Whispering" into something refreshingly cleaver with Flume-like qualities.

They added future bass aesthetics with Floss's signature touch, but restricting this to a genre is unfair to brilliance created by the artists. This is simply feel good music which can be enjoyed in the sanctity of your headphones or turned up loud at festivals and clubs.  Best of all, Floss is handing this heater out as a free download now as they prepare for their nationwide #HDYNATION Fall Tour kicking off in November! Stream the release below, pick up a download, and above all… Enjoy!

GRAVITY_MASTER_G-EAZY

Say hello to an exciting new collection of producers out of the UK who are labeling themselves simply as The Code. Today we hear the first song from the group, a collaboration with breakout rapper G-Eazy on an unreal collaboration "Gravity". Featuring a minimal emotion filled production, the song contains distorted vocals from The Code before G-Eazy comes in and completely destroys the track with his verse. It captures a certain dark and cold vibe throughout that really sticks with you. It also has just the right amount of an electronic kick to make things interesting, yet not distracting from the singing and rapping. They are making this track a free download so listen below and pick up your copy. Enjoy!
