There’s nothing like a new summertime jam to make the cold weather a bit more bearable. That’s exactly what we have with the latest installation of Viceroy’s signature “Jet Life” remixes where he takes classic throwbacks like Ginuwine’s “Pony” and Notorious B.I.G.’s “Going Back to Cali” and gives them tropical makeovers fit for a poolside.
Now this San Francisco based producer has brightened up another classic tune with a remix of Shaggy’s classic and hysterical single “Wasn’t Me.” The upbeat instrumentation brings inland vibes with organic elements including pleasant guitar work that will have you feeling right. The new layers of instrumentation give this classic jam a new spin ready for tropical vibes. Enjoy!

Maroon 5's single "Sugar" ended up racking up millions of listens this year and led to a suprisingly low amount of remixes. Well we have the exciting newcomer Sicarii's take on the track.
With a background ranging from being a radio DJ in Africa playing house records into art cars at Burning Man, Matt Medved, lead dance editor at Billboard is also known as the producer Sicarrii who takes his worldly influences and delivers a refreshing house take on the track. With deep house influences we get left with the new remix that is both ready for a pool party or the club. He's passing this one out as a free download with blessings from the band. Listen to the track below and enjoy!

19 Year old Mura Masa out of Guernsey has been gaining quite a bit of internet hype over the past couple years through various remixes, loose singles and EPs. He just recently announed that he has a debut artist album on the horizon, no date or name yet, but we do get to hear the record's first single.
"Love For That" captivates everything we've grown to love about Mura Masa from the seriously unique choice of percussion elements to the somber strings and effortless manipulation of vocals utilized as an instrument. He partnered up English singer SHURA to provide the featured vocals on the track to really help complete it. Her smooth vocals sound incredible as she shifts through her range dramatically and then Mura Masa proceeds to distort them perfectly in his signature fashion. Listen below to the single that is now finally available to pick up on iTunes and stream on Spotify. We will keep you updated on more info on the album is it comes. Enjoy!
