The live band / DJ hybrid duo Boombox are back with their latest original single following up ‘Lost Ya’ from earlier this year. ‘Waiting Around’ is a funky electronic indie single that is sure to put you in a good mood. It is the first single off the group’s new album Filling in the Color set to release January 14th. This song incorporates a large amount of live band elements from guitar solos to horns leaving us with a jam inspired twist reminding me of The Grateful Dead, which isn’t surprising with Guitar / Lead Vocalist Zion of Boombox being the son of two members from the group (Keith and Donna Jean Godchauxt). You can listen to the exclusive stream below. Enjoy.

Mad Decent and their new free Jeffree’s Record Label never dissapoint. Starting with the monumental Total Recall EP from Flosstradamus they have been on a hot streak with free and paid releases easily establishing themselves as one of the most diverse labels ever created. This new Magnet Jam EP is from Sibot and packs 3 incredible songs. He is based out of Africa and has done work for Die Antwoord which somewhat will give you an idea of his funky style. The first track “Magnet Jam” is an eerie funk filled glitch heavy bass BANGER that hits in all the right places. “No Question” takes you in a completely different direction with some crazy synths and wobbles. Then the last track “Tronarist” has a unique almost 80′s dance throwback flair to it, yet with Sibot’s agressive bass packed edge. All three make for an impressive EP, and for most of us a proper introduction to what Sibot is packing. Mad Decent always coming through. Please grab all three of these songs, turn them up, follow Sibot through his pages, enjoy!

Damn, I’ve been waiting for this for quite some time.. GRiZ.. the past Michigan resident who has made his way to Boulder has finally announced that his Mad Liberation album will be coming out September 4th for free. TSIS has been following this talented 22 year old producer ever since we posted his his MASSIVE remix of Aerosmith’s “Dream On”. This is the last single off of Mad Liberation to come out before it drops next week. There isn’t an official tracklist, but I believe that “The Future Is Now” and “Where Is The Love” are on the album as well. This track “Smash the Funk” is a future funk /groovestep bass heavy BANGER. It starts off with a dancey funk break which immedately picks up some energy with a little bass. It then moves it then builds up more and more energy until the bass finally comes crashing in complete with his eerie high pitched synths. The track has soul and emotion, yet capturing a modern crunchy edge.. to form GRiZ’s distinct flavor. Turn up the bass, get ready for September 4th, this looks to be one of the biggest releases of the year. Enjoy!

Today I’m stoked to bring you another sponsored release, and we only sponsor musi that we want to make sure everybody hears. It’s the latest release from Manic Focus, one of my favorite new producers. It’s a newly remastered higher quality 320 bit rate version of Defintition of the Rhythm, sponsored by Thissongissick and Grassroots. This newcomer from Minnesota has a sound that combines a bassy edge with a groovy vibe, simliar to the Pretty Lights vibe. Some of the tracks hit a little harder then others, but they all have a funky groove that gets you moving. I love the choice of samples on here ranging Outkast to Tom Petty, and everything in between. He does a great job at sampling all parts of the songs, instead of just the vocals. It was extremely hard to pick out a few tracks to sample, so grab the entire album here and just listen to all the way through, trust me. Turn it up, looking forward to more Manic Focus, enjoy!

Well here’s the second remix of the track that’s becoming quite popular ‘Somebody I Used To Know’ by Gotye. We already featured the Avicii styled house remix by Jakob Liedholm here, and now we get Robotic Pirate Monkey’s version. It’s got a funky electro vibe to it. It just might be their name, but almost everyone one of their songs sounds like the pefect soundtrack for a massive jungle concert, maybe it’s just me. This, like all there music has a very unique vibe to it. It changes up heavily throughout, and really can’t be held to one genre, other than Bass Music. Turn it up, enjoy!

It’s always cool hearing artists drop a variety of kinds of music. RPM’s last album Colors in Disguise went a little on the bass heavy side, and this track is a more laid back sample based track. This one “Last Night” Ft. fellow Colorado producer Rodway, is a new track given away for free by both artists. The guitars and vocals, chopped up in melodic way work very well. Turn it up, enjoy!
