We are down to just under two weeks until Dillon Francis's debut full length album Money Sucks, Friends Rule is unleashed upon the world. Today Dillon has provided the ultimate throw back Thursday with his newest single "Love in the Middle of a Firefight" featuring none other than Panic! At The Disco's lead singer Brand Urie. Dillon goes on to say "it's definitely one of my favorite songs on the album and I'm so happy I finally get to share it with the world!!! I hope this shows you how diverse all of my album is going to be!"
"Love in the Middle of a Firefight" is a step in a different direction from the previous high energy festival tracks we've previewed on the upcoming album. Brandon's vocals are vibrant and lush and when paired with the melody creating a very pleasant upbeat atmosphere. Really looking forward to this release. Stream the track below and pre-order the album here.

The always amazing Feed Me has done it again, surprising us this time with a rendition of Caribou's 'Back Home'. The UK Producer quoted on his Soundcloud saying “I have loved Caribou's music for a long time so I sang and produced this my own way for fun.”
A departure from his usual high energy style, Feed Me takes the original tracks more upbeat and light sound and twists in his own flare making it more dark and eerie. His signature synths are present and when layered over the drum pattern paired with his own vocals really make this quite an amazing cover. This reminds us of his also 2011 cover remix of Two Door Cinema club's "What You Know" and is hopefully a sign of more covers to come from Feed Me. Stream the song only for now and check back for a release or free download. Enjoy
Little is known about newcomer act Eastside who announced themselves into existence with a beautifully constructed vocal and acoustic cover that combines two of this summers biggest hits, Chris Brown's "Loyal" and Ed Sheeran's "Don't", as the reconstructed single "Ellie". Well emerging Norwegian producer Coucheron has remixed the cover into a completely new direction giving the perfect amount of electronic influence with a full line of drums and effected synths, leaving us with an instantly infectous track. Listen below and don't miss out on the free download thanks to Coucheron. Enjoy!

A producer we haven't featured close to enough is the impressive German producer WKND who has a chilled out easy going style we can't get enough of. Today we have his remix of Chet Faker's cover of Sonia Dada's "Lover" that surfaced a couple weeks back which snuck through our radar. He layers in some tropical house styling with some smooth new drums while managing to highlight the original's guitar and vocals perfectly. This will be the perfect song to hold on to the last bit of the warm weather for part of the world starting to get cold. WKND has been nice enough to pass this out as a free download. Enjoy!

Raury – God’s Whisper (Flosstradamus & Aryay Remix) : Must Hear Chill Trap / Future Bass Remix [Free Download]Posted in Bangin, Chill by Bryan | Tags: Aryay, Flosstradamus, Free Download, indie, Raury, Remix, Trap
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!

Jon Bellion.. what can I say that I haven't already about one of the most exciting names in music right now? We first sponsored and premiered his entire first album "The Seperation" which was given out as a free download and got us hooked on the talented multi-faceted artist capable of not only writing and singing, but also producing. Well today we get the next chapter in the artist's blossoming career with another entire new album "The Definition", somehow released as a free download once again.
We first got to sample "Munny Right", "Simple and Sweet" and "Carry Your Throne" which came along with some cinematic quality music videos bringing the songs to life. Today we get the rest of the 11 track album. We hear Jon successfully manage to blend an endless amount genres primarily focused around hip-hop and indie with some R&B tossed in the mix. Production on the release, done by Jon himself manages to fuse organic instruments and just the right amount of electronic influence. Every song couldn't be more different, with something to please almost everyone.
