The Australian producer on the fast track, Flume is back with his latest impressive visual for the song “Insane ft. Moon Holiday” from his debut self-titled album. We follow what looks to be singer Moon Holiday on a futuiristic sci-fi bike ride which ends up igniting with a mysrerious light, then abruptly ends. It’s very interesting and caused me to give it a second watch. Pick up a copy of his album if you haven’t yet available through iTunes. Enjoy!

Today I have the long awaited new project from Boulder’s own Paper Diamond. TSIS has posted Paper Diamond’s stuff since day one starting with the Levitate EP, followed by the notorious Kanye West – Power remix. Throughout the past year’s he’s continued to drop some viral bootleg remixes to Same Old Song, Wildfire, All We Do Is, and more. Now we got his 3 track all original EP, this time released on Diplo’s Mad Decent label instead of his previous Pretty Lights Music affiliation. After listening you can tell why this harder hitting style fits better with the new label. The EP features a revamped track of one track that has previously surfaced Can We Go Up. “Turn the Lights Off” features vocals from Nasimiyu, is a standout track I’ve heard there’s a HUGE music video in the works for. Then Airlift has a fresh minimal Trap vibe to it. You’ll love PD’s unique fresh vibe, giving that electronic punch yet mainting that hip hop swagger. Turn it up, enjoy!

Today I’ve got an unbelievable free album for you, from Gramatik, a Slovenian artist who stands for everything that the site believes in; not giving a shit about confining music to a single genre, and wanting to spread that good music to as many possible people, for free in hopes that they will pay money to see the artists play live in concert. And that’s this brand new 6 song EP #digitalfreedom stands for. It was released on Pretty Lights Music and sponsored by Thissongissick. For this release he has a more agressive bass heavy style spanning over a variety of genres including dubstep, glitch hop, nu disco, and even some more. Dynamic and versatile are some of the best words to describe Gramatik. The live guitar and samples used give it that funky upbeat sound blended with the heavy hitting bass edge creates a great vibe reminding me a little bit of Pretty Lights, but completely it’s own sound.. Here’s a great ending note from Gramatik himself.
“Also, I just wanna say one thing to those who know me only by my chilled out hip-hop beatz: don’t be scared when you hear this EP, my true fans know that I’m nothing if not versatile. Good music is larger than one genre so just open your mind, absorb the vibes and you’ll be versatile too!”

Today I’ve got a track that’s got a real unique sound. It’s from New York based Silver Medallion, who we’ve previously featured with his single “All I Ask”. He’s got a voice that reminds me of an 80′s singer, in the best way possible. This electronic powered track starts off pretty chill, then continues to buildup, and finally drop the bass at 1:40. Feature Cuts was recruited for the production of it, and really killed it. It’s a groove filled song, with clashing bass giving it some contrast. Turn it up, enjoy!
