Deadmau5 brought us a hip-hop track titled “Are You Not Afraid" last year featuring some stelar verses by Shotty Horroh. Now he’s gone back at it and reworked this track to bring a more classic boom bap hip hop vibe. Bringing a more melodic version with menacing synths, classic kick drums & snares, a walking bassline, and turntable scratching, Deadmau5 shows his versatility on his “quick and dirty retake on a fav.”

Chance is all over this album, popping up on a majority of the tracks and helping with production, but this is Donnie’s breakout album. Instead of releasing his debut album next, Chance has placed Donnie in the spotlight where he shines with his out of this world trumpet skills as the conductor of The Social Experiment including Peter Cottontale, Nate Fox, Stix, Chance, and Donnie. Surf brings out an all star cast of artists including Big Sean, J. Cole, Busta Rhymes, Erykah Badu, Jeremih, Janelle Monae, B.o.B., Raury, and many many more talented musicians who’s talents come together flawlessly on this cohesive project.

Louis Futon has become a TSIS favorite over the past year or so; turning out non stop amazing tunes, his 2015 releases are proving to be especially exciting. He released a free 7 track Louis Futon EP at the beginning of the year which has now been followed up with viral remixes of G-Eazy's "Let's Get Lost" and Phony PPL's "End Of The Night", and now we get the latest.
Today he ventures into some new heavy, bass filled territory with his latest release "Oakland Tho".

This trendsetting LA based producer brings a cinematic instrumental with an eerie vibe and chill trap elements that serves as the perfect canvas for Tory to offer his sensual, falsetto crooning on “Acting Like.” These two display great chemistry together as their individual styles compliment each other perfectly. Watch the video below and stay tuned for an official release of these artists' debut collaboration.
The much anticipated collaboration between A$AP Rocky and Schoolboy Q off Rocky's upcoming album At.Long.Last.A$AP has surfaced! These two rappers have an undeniable chemistry between them and whenever they work together it’s a guaranteed hit.
This new one titled “Electric Body” kicks off with Rocky offering his swaggy, groovy flows and shows he’s the master of the beat/flow switch as the track takes a couple turns with Rocky changing up his rhythem. Q goes in on his verse and the ridiculous hook “Shake that ass girl / make that coochie wet” is surprisingly catchy over the changing psychedelic beat as Rocky shows off his singing voice like he did on the recent track “LSD.” Stay tuned for the album to drop on June 2nd and check out the star-studded tracklist below including Kanye, Schoolboy Q, Juicy J, Lil Wayne, M.I.A., Mos Def, and more!

An outrageously good new Kendrick Lamar song just appeared online titled “Partynauseous” that has a surprising feature from Lada Gaga. She provides some effected vocals over a spacey beat with powerful hi-hats and electronic textures which leads to Kendrick coming in and spitting an unruly, yet laid back verse with a flow that couldn't be mistaken for anyone else. There is no details or idea on if this will see an official release or not. Listen below, share thoughts in the comments and enjoy!

Well it looks like Drake and Beyoncé have finally linked up on a track. The new, sure to be massive, song is called "Can I" – and it just leaked online. The song features some effort-and-flawless verses from Drake and a smooth sung verse from singer Sal Houdini. Although Beyonce may only supply a small line, "Can I. Baby", her distictive voice adds a powerful and minimal edge. While this might be a leak, it sounds pretty done and full, so not sure how it could have appeared. Either way listen below and we'll keep you posted of the official release. Enjoy!

Jamie XX Releases New Official Version Of “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)” Ft Both Young Thug & PopcaanPosted in Chill by Jake | Tags: Hip-Hop, Jamie XX, Popcaan, young Thug
We’re quickly approaching the June 1 release of Jaime XX’s debut solo album, In Colour, and now we get to hear the official version of one of the most anticipated tracks off the album.
We previously heard a leaked version of this new track “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times),” the unlikely collaboration with rising Atlanta hip hop star Young Thug, and now we have the official version featuring Jamaican dancehall artist, Popcaan. Jaime XX strays away from the sound he’s become known for with The XX and delivers a unique summertime hit that surely evokes good vibes and will have you repeatedly clicking replay. The soft production on this track uses a warm, soulful sample that unexpectedly works well alongside Young Thug’s screeching signature vocals over the melodic beat with thumping bass and is all brought together by Popcaan's added refreshing, reggae infused hook. Keep an eye out for one of the most anticipated albums of the year. Enjoy!
Just a few weeks out from the release of A$AP Rocky’s album At.Long.Last.A$AP, we get yet another new song that we can expect on the album which drops next month.
This new track "LSD" has Rocky singing most of the track over a far out guitar fueled production, which leads to a beat switch around the 3 minute mark with a signature verse. To compliment the trippy nature of the track he delivers a fitting extra spacey music video that will have the viewer feeling like they may have taken something. This has has us anxiously counting down the days to hear the rest of the release. You can stream below until a download becomes available. Enjoy!
New York based producer, singer and songwriter Jon Bellion follows up his debut album The Definition and new singles "All Time Low" & "Woodstock" with yet another new song. "Woke The F*ck Up" is an upbeat acoustic fueled single with Jon laying down some signature unbelievably smooth choruses and verses. He manages to work in just the right electronic edge from the punchy drums to the bassline breakdown to the vocal chopping. It's another quality Jon Bellion tune you will find yourself replaying endlessly. Listen below and we will keep you posted on a free download or official release. Enjoy!
US fans, Jon is jumping back on the road for part 2 of The Definition Tour. See all the dates below and pick up tickets before they sell out!
