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.

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

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.

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!
