Long time TSIS favorite Manic Focus continues to ride the success of his most recent album 'Cerebral Eclipse' released last year with a new remix of festival favorite "Thunderdome" from Minnesota and Santa Cruz rising force G Jones. Manic Focus flips the song upside down leaving us with a funky electro-soul rendition packing some smooth wobbles and flute styled synths. Stream the premiere below and grab a free download. Enjoy!

Bassnectar just unleashed a star studded album of remixes from his recent release Noise vs. Beauty. Today we have one of it's hottest tracks from a TSIS favorite, Minnesota. He takes on "Open Up" and gives it a surprisingly smooth liquid drum-n-bass twist. The vocals sound perfect laid next to a drum-n-bass powered melody. The new spin on this track really shows the versatility of Minnesota as a producer. Listen below to the song and pick up your copy of the new Noise vs Beauty remix album that is available now. Enjoy!

Brace yourself for a strong injection of funky melodies as Santa Cruz resident producer Minnesota comes out of nowhere to release quite the smooth remix. Using the foundation provided by iconic bass duo Adventure Club's hit dubstep single "Gold" as his inspiration, Minnesota strips the track down to just the vocals by Yuma and layers in some glitch-hop elements, wonky bass knocks, and a funky cascading synth pattern that combine for quite the chilled out mixture. A free download is the icing on top of the perverbial cake, so stream the release below and above all… Enjoy

My story has changed quite a lot since moving to Boulder, Colorado and starting Thissongissick back in 2010. My name is Nick Guarino and this is Thissongissick.com. We've grown a lot since, but the original goal has always stayed the same: making it easier for you to discover sick new music that you've never heard before. In high school I would make mix cd's for my friends to show them all the new music I was discovering. Now, through TSIS, we work with musicians and record labels from all over the world to showcase a variety of the freshest electronic, hip-hop, indie, and alternative music to a global following that is comprised of millions of music lovers in over 110 countries - every single month. So, make yourself at home while enjoying countless amazing musicians from a variety of genres and let the sick sounds fill your ears! - Nick
