Say hello to Lenno.. someone we haven’t properly shed enough light on. He’s the freshly 17 year old young electronic producer from Finland who makes his own blend of disco that grooves and packs a punch. We haven’t featured much of him since his Foster the People – Helena Beat (Lenno Remix). Well we were lucky enough to have him recreate his recent MASSIVE set from Balaton Sound Festival in Hungary, and release it as the latest TSIS exclusive mix. This set hits hard with a fierce electro edge, going outside of his disco realm. The transitions and mixing are very on point, especially at a kid his age. (See below for the full tracklist) Also included are his recent remixes of The Knocks’ “Geronimo” and Above & Beyond’s “On My Way To Heaven”. The kid has some serious skill, watch out Madeon!! haha. Also to all our Australian fans, read below for concert dates as Lenno is making a 3 night run throughout AU!

the 17 year old, freshly turned 18 year old powerhouse is back with his next anthem, freshly premiered on Pete Tong’s radio show. It’s his track “Finale”.. packing a heavy punch fused with the feel good disco groove. The track being titled “Finale” leads to believe that whatever he makes next will sound far different, potentially even heavier? As long as he maintains the groovey disco vibe I’m in. Turn up this track, enjoy!

Today I’ve got an unbelievable free album for you, from Gramatik, a Slovenian artist who stands for everything that the site believes in; not giving a shit about confining music to a single genre, and wanting to spread that good music to as many possible people, for free in hopes that they will pay money to see the artists play live in concert. And that’s this brand new 6 song EP #digitalfreedom stands for. It was released on Pretty Lights Music and sponsored by Thissongissick. For this release he has a more agressive bass heavy style spanning over a variety of genres including dubstep, glitch hop, nu disco, and even some more. Dynamic and versatile are some of the best words to describe Gramatik. The live guitar and samples used give it that funky upbeat sound blended with the heavy hitting bass edge creates a great vibe reminding me a little bit of Pretty Lights, but completely it’s own sound.. Here’s a great ending note from Gramatik himself.
“Also, I just wanna say one thing to those who know me only by my chilled out hip-hop beatz: don’t be scared when you hear this EP, my true fans know that I’m nothing if not versatile. Good music is larger than one genre so just open your mind, absorb the vibes and you’ll be versatile too!”

The Knocks – Brightside (Jaybrid Dubstep Remix) (Official Release): Amazing New Dubstep / Indie RemixPosted in Bangin by nick | Tags: BANGER, Dance, Dubstep, Electronic, indie, Jaybird, Nu Disco, Remix, The Knocks
So we just posted up The Knocks’ latest single ‘Brightside’, and the poppy dance anthem wasn’t quite hard enough for some of you, well today I’ve got Jaybird’s filthy dubstep remix to the track. Right from the beginging you know the track has been remixed in a serious way. The catchy vocals from the original really mesh very well with the chaotic whomping bass that comes in when it drops. At first I was almost a little thrown off by the contrast, but after I second time through I was in love with the track. This is classic dubstep remix of very catchy indie track. Turn it up, enjoy!
