The anticipation surrounding Flume's forthcoming, sophomore album Skin continues to grow everytime we play back the two lead singles "Never Be Live You" and "Smoke & Retribution." The former recently received official remix treatments from the likes of Wave Racer and Disclosure, but today we have two relative unknowns who've created something quite fresh with their chilled-out production. 

Producer Nikö Black reworks the original with smooth, future bass arrangements and melodic percussion builds while NYC singer Marco Foster showcases his vocal range in place of Kai's sultry tones. The pair combine talents quite nicely and have captured a new energy that feeds into the album's hype.

Kanye West’s “Heard ‘Em Say” Receives Must Hear Cover From G Eazy

While Kanye West’s The Life Of Pablo has been taking much of hip hop’s recent spotlight, G Eazy decided to bring attention to one of Kanye’s older tracks. He’s decided to take on “Heard ‘Em Say” off Kanye’s 2005 Late Registration album which he's delivered via BBC's 1Xtra Live Lounge.

While the original song features Adam Levine, Maroon 5’s frontman, this new cover brings on vocalist Anne Marie to deliver the hook. G Eazy pays respect with his version of the classic tune while swapping lines about Kanye’s Chicago hometown to reflect his own upbringing in Oakland. This is the first we’ve heard from G Eazy since his album When It’s Dark Out which dropped in December and we can't wait for what's next! Listen below and enjoy.

We’ve been impatiently awaiting new material as we get closer to the release of Flume’s much anticipated sophomore album Skin, and he holds us over with a fresh new cover. His forthcoming album follows up his highly successful 2012 self titled debut album, and we’ve already been blessed with singles “Smoke & Retribution” and “Never Be Like You” in addition to an album teaser and a recent downtempo mix he crafted for BBC.

He’s taken to BBC’s Annie Mac again to premiere a brand new cover of R&B singer Alessia Cara’s hit “Here.” Flume has taken on the incredibly catchy tune and produced an entirely new instrumental of the track bringing a more bass heavy flavor as he’s reworked an evolving beat beneath the vocals. Not only did he spice up the production with new eerie synth melodies and minimalist percussion, but he’s enlisted vocalists and recent album collaborators Kai and Kucka, who’ve respectively appeared on “Never Be Like You” and “Smoke & Retribution." The original’s lyrics were left unaltered as Flume’s collaborators take turns singing this new version of the popular song. Flume also debuted an unreleased/untitled original single on the radio show and you can hear it at 7:50 in the BBC player below. Enjoy!
