Watch Joey Bada$$ Deliver Must See Cover Of Prince: "When Thugs Cry" With Full Band

Joey BadaSS Prince

This is awesome. On his last album, we heard Joey Bada$$ evolve as an artist to include his own singing on more songs. Now he’s putting this talent on full display taking on none other than Prince for an amazing new cover alongside a full band and backing vocalists.

Joey joined Australia’s Triple J for the cover on their Like a Version series that’s seen some incredible and unlikely covers over the years. For this new cover paying homage to the late legend, doing his own version of “When Doves Cry,” calling it “When Thugs Cry” adding some fire new verses. It's cool to hear Joey step out of his comfort zone and still sound great as he makes the original his own and doesn't try to be Prince, but still does the original justice. This was a really cool tribute to the highly influential artist. He also did a live version of “Temptation” below that’s definitely worth checking out. Enjoy!

Lane 8 Shares Stunning 10-Track Chill House Album ‘Little By Little’

Lane 8 Little By Little Album

In October of last year, Lane 8 shared “No Captain,” the first single off of his sophomore album Little By Little. Since then the emotive artist has kept anticipation high for the project, sharing singles “Atlas,” “Coming Back To You” and “Stir Me Up,” with each release encompassing the producer’s powerful progressive style in it’s own way. Today the entire Little By Little project is finally here, and it’s everything Lane 8 built it up to be over the past few months as he's shown his mastery of chill house productions.

Six new releases make up this 10-track project, from straight-up house opener “Daya” to somber, vocal-heavy “Skin & Bones” feat. Patrick Baker. Despite the differences between each release, one thing remains consistent throughout: Lane 8 doesn’t fall back on any bells and whistles to make Little By Little shine. The sound design is both clean and wonderfully raw, capturing an emotional essence through its simplicity. The guest vocals, from Fractures to Poliça to the uncredited vocalist on gripping album standout “Stir Me Up,” take the intensity of the offering to new heights.

Lane 8 once again shows he’s a master of his craft, infusing each independent piece of this project into one powerful whole. Check out Little By Little in its entirety below, and get ready to have this one on repeat all weekend. Enjoy!

Sam Crow Totem Remix

New York-based artist TOTEM has impressed us over the years with his incredibly smooth, electronic/indie sound. Having cranked out some truly infectious tracks, today we have the pleasure of premiering a remix of his most recent single. Making his TSIS debut, we’re excited to share up-and-coming Swedish producer Sam Crow’s take on TOTEM’s “Staring At The Sun”.

Sam Crow has effectively stripped TOTEM’s latest track to it’s bones and reassembled it in an incredibly unique and dance-able way with this new remix. Starting off with a bouncy guitar melody, TOTEM’s immediately recognizable vocals slowly float in atop some soft acoustic percussion before a quick rise throws the track into a energetic, synth filled drop, driven by a thumping kick drum. Check out Sam Crow’s remix of “Staring At The Sun” below and enjoy!
