We first heard Baauer's new single "One Touch" feat AlunaGeorge a couple of weeks ago when he first released the VIP version of the track. Today, the original comes to light but with a new face on the song, "No Flex Zone" rising rap duo Rae Sremmurd. "One Touch" packs some unique drums and seductive melodies that lay perfectly with AlunaGeorge and Rae's vocals to truly make this one of our favorite Baauer tracks to date.
Regarding working with AlunaGeorge, Baauer recently told the The Fader, "I recorded Aluna over a year ago, when we first met… The track I gave her was so basic and had no chord progression or anything so she said 'you gotta give me something to work with' and made that the intro. I held on to the track for a while and changed it about 1000 times. Fast forward about a year, I was in Vegas with Swae and Slim (Rae Sremmurd) recording them rapping over the GTA Vloading screen song. It was incredible. The next night, back in New York, I put the Aluna and Rae verses together just for fun… and it sounded real good. :D"
You will find this song on Baauer's upcoming EP "ß". "One Touch" also comes as a free download when you Pre-order your copy through iTunes available today.

Daft Punk are responsible for some of the most notable dance anthems ever created; this undeniable fact has historically seen few producers step up to the challenge of remixing or bootleging any of their tracks. Earlier this year, we saw Dillon Francis step up to the plate and flip an official remix to "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger", turning it into a bass heavy trap banger that tore up festivals all summer.
Today we have an exciting new bootleg from producer duo Black Boots. Delivering an impressive remix of the Daft Punk classic "One More Time" we speculate that it could even be deemed official. There is definitely some strong Flume influence in this future bass rendition of the track; highlighting the original vocals and melody while managing to turn it into a completely new track. Listen below and grab a free download. Enjoy!

Sweater Beats Releases One Of His Strongest Songs To Date With “Cloud City” : Future Bass / Chill-TrapPosted in Bangin by josh | Tags: Cloud City, Ep, Future Bass, Sweater Beats, Trap
New York's rising future-bass producer Sweater Beats has been holding his own lately. TSIS has premiered his Diplo & Friends mix and Toddla T mix as well as his unreal remixes of Flume & Chet Faker's "Drop The Game" and Snakehips "Days With You" among others. Now, set to release his biggest project to date, the upcoming Cloud City EP on HW&W Recordings (home to the equally notable Kytranada and Stwo), Sweater Beats has given us a taste of what's to come with the album's title track.
"Cloud City" demonstrates the New York producer's unique ability to smoothly combine multiple layers of sound. Flume comes to mind with the use of tight drums and sharp cymbals; but Sweater Beats shows off his own distinct flare with a melody of choppy synths that turn up the energy and bring urgency to the peak of the composition. As always, the time and effort put into Sweater Beats tracks is apparent. "Cloud City" is upbeat, making you feel almost as if you were living in the Cloud City level in a Super Mario Bros game.
Cloud City EP is set to release on October 28th for free (submit your email here to have the EP sent directly to you on release day). For now, enjoy the first taste and stream the track below!
