Last week we asked you to help us figure out "Who the F*ck Made This Amazing OutKast Mashup House Cover?" and received answers ranging from Duke Dumont to Moon Boots. While we wait on our toes for news as to who made the infectious track, we received another anonymous e-mail from the no name artist with a new song and similar artwork. Pitched down rap samples set the tone of this track, yet the vocals coming in sound like the same singer from "Moves Like Ms. Jackson"; this leads us to believe whoever these tracks are from are both a producer and singer. We are also not crossing out the idea of it being a group as opposed to a solo artist. Looking forward to anymore news with this artist if it's new releases or even his / her / their name or identity. We will keep you posted as we find anything else out. Enjoy!

Dillon Francis looked to Diplo’s Mad Decent record label to release his lastest original anthem, “Messages”. From the beginning you hear the overly happy synths and on point vocal reworking all paced at Dillon’s signature slowed down Moombahton pace. It progresses to a simply massive drop that just seems to be even more epic then his previous Bootleg Fireworks. He manages to balance out the gritty edge with the overly happy breaks giving the song some great depth and variety. It is now availabel for purchase through iTunes. Enjoy!

Time for a fresh original from the guy who helped make one of the biggest remixes of 2012, the trapped out version of Kanye West’s “Mercy” done by RL Grime and Salva. Salva will be releasing his upcoming Odd Furniture EP on February 12th. “Drop That B” is the first powerful single giving us the proper taste of where his original sound is going. Fierce sampling of hydraulics and the song’s ‘one liner’ start the track off strong, instantly luring you in. Then before you know you are hit with mountains of bass rattling 808s. The sublte variations he uses between the sampling and bass dropping is incredibly effective throughout the rest of the song building more anticipation until the end where you find yourself hitting replay instantly.
