That’s Love – Marc E. Bassy (Matt DiMona Remix)

Although it was good to hear some 100% original material from Matt DiMona, hearing him revamp this single from Marc E. Bassy reminded me why I started listening to him in the first place — he hears potential in songs that no one else does, and he builds elaborate, organic arrangements that you would never expect to work.

The smooth strumming of an electric guitar ease us into Marc’s distinct vocals as the groovy remix unfolds. Elevating synth pads and deep percussion back the first verse, giving the song a new, less hip-hop and more indie-rock sort of vibe. The highlight of the song is definitely Matt’s highly unprecedented guitar solos; whereas most drops would lead into some sort of repeating synth-based melody, he decided to just loop a drum beat and shred on his electric guitar.

Ever since we heard Matt DiMona remix Girls Love Beyonce back in 2014, we knew there was something special about his sound. Every remix he puts out has something specific to Matt, and the quality standard he holds himself to ensures that he’ll never release something he’s not proud of. Give it a listen and be sure to throw him a follow on SoundCloud and Twitter.

Infinity Signs – CRAY

March 16, 2016

Infinity Signs - CRAY
Free Download | Infinity Signs - CRAY

Austin, TX is full of people with tattoos, so it’s common knowledge here that anchors, dream catchers, feathers, and infinity signs all fall under the classic “white girl” classification. CRAY is as pasty as they come, so it shouldn’t surprise you that some if the ink she’s gotten is a little basic, and it definitely shouldn’t stop you from giving her new song ‘Infinity Signs’ a listen.

As per usual, the original single doesn’t feature any lyrics, but what it lacks in poetry CRAY makes up for with intricate, alluring, and blissful production. The song is centered around panning vocal samples, euphoric synths, and sanguine percussion. This electronic trap house style of music she’s curated is heavy; each song she’s put out is dripping with emotion, each drop hits you harder than the last, and the random Super Mario samples are oddly fitting.

I don’t post electronic music often enough, mainly because a lot of EDM artists haven’t been able to distinguish themselves and stand out from the sea of other aspiring musicians. CRAY has a refined brand and a distinct style that’s worth a listen at the very least, and a follow on SoundCloud and Twitter is always cool too.

Understand Me – PASTEL & Emily Jane

Understand Me - PASTEL & Emily Jane

Free Download | Understand Me - Les Faits Sonores & Emily Jane

This is our first post from french-named and Paris based EDM collective Les Faits Sonores (which translates to The Sound Facts in English). Les Faits Sonores is a music conglomerate that’s been sharing hot EDM tracks for about 3 months now, and the momentum they’ve gained since they started sharing songs is substantial — over 11,000 followers on their Soundcloud page already.

Understand Me is a catchy song from the London based producer PASTEL. The song’s enticing melody starts before you even hear the beat, and instantly you’re drawn in to the seemingly out-of-the-box instruments and arrangements.  As the song wraps up its brief intro, the beautiful sound that follows is the voice of Emily Jane.  Her ringing voice mixed with the upbeat production from PASTEL blends to create a track that will have you bumpin’ side to side.

If you were dancing when you played this track like I was, be sure to follow Les Faits Sonores on SoundCloud and throw PASTEL a follow on SC as well.

Wavy – Dom Hurley & CVM

Wavy - Dom Hurley & CVM

Free Download | *DOM x CAMM - WAVY*

The guys over at Amplify Entertainment Group have been using their AV talents to make awesome live music videos of younger Nashville artists for almost two years now. These acts are often acoustic acts, however, so we became intrigued when we heard they were releasing a hip-hop Single Session with Belmont students Cam Bryant (CAMM) and Dom Hurley (DOM). “Wavy” is a collab these two released over the summer, but the video brings the personalities to life while merging live instruments and vocals with the produced midi elements. At the core of the track is Dom’s melodic piano progression and Cam’s natural-flowing clever lyrics. Supporting these elements is what sounds like a pitch bended vocal sample, which adds some tasteful ambience to the track. The best part about the live video, compared to the original, is the horn section that enters during the drop. Over this drop, DOM plays around on an 8-bit lead while a saw pad supports the horns. CAMM comes back in and slays it again on verse two, which builds to a pretty hyped ending verse.

Keep your eye on both of these young artists, as they’ve already both put out lots of awesome work and I’m sure that there are many great releases in the future as well. In fact “Higher Learning”, a full mixtape from CAMM, is set to release sometime in the coming semester. Be sure to keep up with CAMM on Soundcloud, FacebookTwitter, and Instagram to hear about upcoming releases, and do the same for DOM (Soundcloud, Insta, Twitter).

Sober – JB Wynn

Sober - JB Wynn
Free Download |

JB Wynn is a member in one of America’s biggest fraternities, Sigma Alpha Epsilon at East Carolina University. This song represents just how wild college can get, and his perspective is easy for just about any college student to empathize with. The song starts as his friend walks in and says something to the tune of, “What are you doing?” “Dude the party starts at 10!” “Yeah but the drinking starts now!” which essentially describes my whole freshman year.

“Out of my mind, I need closure. Why do I drink? I hate hangovers, late textin I tell her ‘come over’. Tell me why I cant stay sober.” is the chorus to this catchy tune, and it’s one that’ll be running through your head all day. The reason I think we’re feeling this song so much however, aside from the relatable lyrics, is the feel good production from our boy Felly. Using a basic drum kit on a loop while the organ sits on top of the beat, creating enticing melodies and killer chord progressions overlayed with angelic vocals — this sounds like a rager inside a synagogue.

Check out JB Wynn on Twitter and Soundcloud to show some support, hopefully we can expect more quality content from him in the future.

Old Man – Loud Luxury

Old Man – Loud Luxury
Free Download | Old Man – Loud Luxury

Loud Luxury was first introduced to the site in July 2015 for their remix of XYLO’s “Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea” and now they’re back with their brand new song “Old Man,” which is simply a fantastic song from two fantastic musicians.

Loud Luxury describes their music as “Deep House with a shot of Tequila” and this is right on the money. This group is made up of university friends Andrew Fedyk and Joe Depace, who both came to the U.S. from all the way up in Toronto. Since the two created Loud Luxury back in August 2012 they have been blowing up the House scene with their talent, grabbing the attention of all sorts of EDM royalty, and most recently doing a 2015 North American tour with the multi-award winning artist Arty. We got to kick it with them when their tour brought them through Houston’s Stereolive last November, and it is safe to say I can’t wait for them to make another appearance.

This particular song stands out in a multitude of ways with its origin being of particular interest. As the duo stated in a recent interview, the song was conceived due to a Netflix Nina Simone documentary on a hungover afternoon. Old Man is a remix of Mrs. Simone’s 1965 interpretation of an old traditional spiritual song “Sinnerman” that has been sampled numerous times by all sorts of artists including Kanye. Loud Luxury takes Simone’s emotional vocals and busts out a song that will get everyone dancing hard at any club or festival. I could go on and on about these two and this song but suffice to say there is a reason this song earned over 97 K listens on SoundCloud in only 6 days. Definitely show them some love with a follow on Twitter and Soundcloud.

Aurelia – LANKS (Champagne Internet Remix)

January 26, 2016

Aurelia – LANKS (Champagne Internet Remix) Free Download | Aurelia - LANKS (Champagne Internet Remix)

This song is a fresh release from the production prodigy Champagne Internet, and something about this release has really struck a chord in me. Using the already beautiful song by LANKS, he adds extraterrestrial instruments to the mix to amplify the ambient tones.

LANKS is the solo project of Will Cumming, a Melbourne, Australia based musician. Aurelia is off his second EP that came out in 2015 and is an absolutely beautiful song, especially when remixed by Champagne Internet. What makes LANKS stand out as an indie artist though, aside from the intoxicating downtempo production, is the extremely enigmatic lyrics. This song about a girl has a certain depth that makes you want to listen to the lyrics over and over until you’re able to get inside the writer’s head. This dream like quality is intensified by Cumming’s high-pitched crystal clear voice, and the simple melodies that are prominent in the chorus.

Champagne Internet did something interesting with this song, something different from all of his other material. A quick climbing synth and resounding bass picking provide a juxtaposition to the slowly unfolding beauty of the vocal melody, with a faster paced, more upbeat feeling. The real success of this remix is that it manages to do all of this without distracting from the slow and contemplative emotion that is so charming in the original song. Very strong release from two very strong artists, if you dig this be sure to check Champagne Internet out on Soundcloud.

Me Myself & I – G-Eazy (No Sleep Remix)

Me Myself & I - G-Eazy (No Sleep Remix)
Free Download | Me Myself & I - G-Eazy (No Sleep Remix)

G released his second studio album in December of last year, and although some fans were disappointed by the seemingly mainstream project, the majority of us basked in the Bay Area bred rapper’s anthems and applauded him on yet another successful release.

No Sleep is a talented young producer from Pittspurgh, PA. He’s released solely remixes to date, but his fan base has already grown to over 60,000 followers on Soundcloud and he’s currently wrapping up a short US tour. The guy is good at reworking tracks and turning them into club hits, so when I saw that he’d worked his magic on G-Eazy’s hottest single from 2015 “Me Myself & I”, I knew I’d be sharing this with y’all today.

The single itself is the highlight of G’s last album; Baby Rexha’s addictive melody has been stuck in my head since October of last year, and Gerald spits some insightful lyricism about the underlying emotions he’s feeling about his success, fame, and fortune. The remix is ambient at first, but slowly digresses into hip-hop centered house production. It’s a sick track, and in my opinion it earns No Sleep a follow on Twitter and Soundcloud.

You Should Go – Andrew Luce

You Should Go - Andrew Luce
Free Download | You Should Go - Andrew Luce

In November of 2011, everything we thought we knew about the Toronto actor turned signer Drake changed when he debuted Take Care. YOLO was founded, Marvin’s Room was the breakup song of the decade, The Weeknd made his first major appearance on Crew Love, and the album went double platinum by 2013. So needless to say, the sample from Cameras/Good Ones Go that Andrew Luce chose to use for this track was a solid pick, but not something that hasn’t been touched before.

‘You Should Go’ is a perfectly concocted remix, and although Andrew Luce has been distancing himself from revamping hot 100 rap tracks for the last year, it’s intriguing to hear how his growth as an original artist affects the way he reworks billboard charting singles. Heavy airy synth reverberates underneath filtered Drake vocals and an elaborate percussion arrangement, giving the song a chilling tone as waves of sonic bliss build over the treble-heavy tracks.

As most of you may know, Andrew has been working with a group of electronic artists on a project titled Daruma. This is the fifth installment in the series, and you can cop the full project here. Enjoy, and follow Andrew Luce on Twitter and Soundcloud to show some support.

Emergency – Icona Pop (PAZ Remix)

Icona Pop is comprised of two Swedish women, who made their debut to the pop and electronica music scene in 2009. Although they originally struck me as a one-hit wonder, they managed to pull out a few more hits, including their latest — Emergency.

The spotlight of this post, however, is on PAZ. The LA based trap producer and singer has branded himself flawlessly. His artwork on each and every release is creative, original, and intricate; as you can see, this particular remix features him and his feline side kick robbing a “Taco Bank”. The song itself is an upbeat, funky anthem, featuring distorted vocal samples, hyphy build ups, and a mind boggling saxophone melody.

It’s not too crazy, but the trap style beat and reworked vocal pattern is enthralling to say the least. Definitely give this song a listen and see if it’ll fit into the later end of your weekend party playlist, although it might be a little too heavy for your Superbowl Pregame. Regardless, cop the free download and show PAZ some love on Twitter and Soundcloud if you’re feeling it.
