Afrojack ft. Wrabel - Ten Feet Tall (Brito Remix)

Electro is completely hit-or-miss now, and has been for probably a couple, maybe few years... Brito makes the kind that hits. Take his new remix of Afrojack & Wrabel's "Ten Feet Tall". It's simple, really. It's classic. It's perfect. It makes me feel like this kind of music still stands a chance. Take a listen below and let us know what you think. Can you still feel it?

We Are Toonz - Drop That NaeNae (Danger Ultra Trap Remix)

One of the greatest things about following dope remix artists is that you'll discover equally dope original artists. As is the case with the homie Danger Ultra and his new remix of We Are Toonz' "Drop That NaeNae". Scope the original if you're like me and hadn't heard it yet. Shit's straight looney.

Danger kept the original pretty much intact with his remix. His just hits a little bit harder. Go ahead!

DON'T MISS: Destiny's Child - Bills, Bills, Bills (LOLO BX Bootleg)

If you know me or follow TILT at all, then you might be familiar with these two guys from Australia that go by the name of LOLO BX. The duo are fresh by all means, from their sounds to their style.

Last week they delivered a brand new remix. Not gonna lie, I was pretty ecstatic when I saw that it was a Destiny's Child mix. I love me all three of these women and the music they used to make. LOLO BX's take on "Bills, Bills, Bills" promises their signature alternative dance music sound. There's lots of bouncy-bass action, cool clicks to snap your fingers to and, of course, those words we Destiny's Child fans all know and love to sing.

So grab ya girls. The stream and download are below.

Shwann - Katana (3rd Prototype Remix)


OK. So yeah, you know Shwann's been plugging us with nonstop electro hit after hit. Today's no different really, it's just he's giving us a remix of his killer "Katana" from 3rd Prototype. Do I need to say anything more? The Polish duo really fucked this one. It's like 10x as bloody as the original. Shit.

BRAND NEW: Case & Point - All On Me (feat. Gamble & Burke)

Few things about "All On Me". First, this is about as new as tracks get -- the Case & Point dudes literally dropped this one off less than an hour ago. Second, when listening, you can definitely feel that it's festival season and you can tell that Case & Point are ready for it... & third, Gamble & Burke are perhaps the perfect feature for a big progressive house anthem like this. Their lyrics provide a real depth and perspective to the song while still effectively making the track the well-rounded single it is. Enjoy "All On Me" below!

Sabrina Signs & Lenny Ruckus - Higher

If this is the first time you're hearing of Sabrina Signs, you're in trouble. She's about to steal your heart away from you. But only for a few good minutes! Listen up.

Sabrina Signs is a singer/songwriter from San Jose who co-produces these MASSIVE progressive-electro house tunes with her comrade Lenny Ruckus. Together these two make straight fire. Like, take one legit peruse through her's a steady stream of hits. So dope!

Check out their latest together, "Higher", below. It's freaking radical.

DON'T MISS: Syn Cole - Miami 82 (Zeiner Remix)

Honestly the first thing I noticed about Zeiner was his logo. That shit is tight! But then I pressed play on a couple things of his and was like, "Gaddamn... This dude's gooooood."

Below you will find his super rockin' remix of Syn Cole's "Miami 82" that came out on Avicii's cool label LE7ELS. It's a spectacular remix, extremely triumphant in its progressive chords. You'll definitely be hearing this one more as festival season arrives. Free download available at Zeiner's Facebook... Enjoy it!

BRAND NEW: Harrys & Fly + Shwann - Manhunt (Shwann VIP Hard Remix)

In appreciation of the massive support for his recent collab with Harrys & Fly, our good friend Shwann smashed out a free VIP Hard Mix, that features a tough-as-nails drop with a hands-in-the-air breakdown. Both the original and remixes of "Manhunt" are available now on Beatport via Peakhour Music. Have fun!

TILT Weekend Round-up #4 w/ Sharkoffs, Cats Hero, BEARSOHMY, Marian Hill, NAIMAH & more...

Oooookay... Damn. I got a lot of music built up yo. Pretty much just gonna drop everything below, so feel free to go right ahead. But man, in the last couple weeks the music game has been smackin'. Sharkoffs got a new one. You gotta hear this kid Cats Hero -- he's the next big Ed Banger type (you know what I mean). BEARSOHMY was another radical discovery, and his remix of A$AP Rocky's "Goldie" you will die for. Marian Hill's in here, whom we've been spotlighting via their amazing "One Time" remix by Imanos... And a fresh LA face in the indie-pop realm, NAIMAH, you just can't miss. 

Hope you guys enjoy all the music we post -- feel free to drop a comment letting us know we're awesome or we're shit (we don't take things personally over here) -- & as always, have a good weekend!

TILT Premiere: This Paradise - FXDXDFXRTXNXGHT

Yes! We've been waiting a long time for this... This Paradise has finally delivered his long-awaited new EP, 'FXDXDFXRTXNXGHT' ('Faded For Tonight'), which is now available on the This Paradise website. Listen to it now.

The EP kicks off with "Paradise" perhaps respectively. The modern R&B influence in this song is definitely familiar to guys like The Weekend, but the production is a lot more trill, trapped-out and overall it's kind of ecstatic. Definitely don't want to miss this one.

"FXDXD" you may have actually heard before as it was released as a single last year... It's so good though, clearly a big part of this EP and can't be ignored either. So faded...

Finally, I want to make sure "Stay" gets proper mention... This new one is maybe my favorite off the whole project mostly because of the drums involved... It's very tribal but also very relaxing and This Paradise's vocals are pretty minimal, providing just enough thought to take your mind where it needs to go... Go ahead.

DON'T MISS: Ellie Goulding - Burn (Gryffin Remix)

I'm sitting here right now like, what the hell am I supposed to write that can possibly do this remix justice? I've heard thousands of remixes of Ellie Goulding, hundreds of remixes of "Burn" in particular... How can I really make it known that this one is special? Truth is, I don't think I can. You're gonna have to trust me and play this one out.

The remixer is Dan Griffith, who produces under the name Gryffin. He's a super fresh name, and all we really know is that he's coming out of NYC. The above remix is actually only the second thing he's published on his SoundCloud. Check out his debut remix of John Newman's "Love Me Again" too, below. We've definitely got our eye on this guy so hopefully we'll be back with more soon!

TILT Spotlight: Amika Akaya

Surprisingly, this is the first official spotlight we've put on Amika Akaya. But that's definitely not to say we haven't been spotlighting his tracks for a long time now. Amika's one of the coolest party-music-making producers out here right now, no question. Below we've got more or less a round-up of what he's been up to as of late.

Start yourself off with his "STAY TRILL MIX VOL. 2". Yup, it's turn up time.

You might have just heard this one if you listened to the mix but here's his incredibly dope remix of Martin Garrix's "Animals". God damn. He killed this one!

And finally, here's "WHERE DA CASH AT" off his most recent EP, 'Killing Season'. Click here for on that one!

TILT PREMIERE: Boy Manik - Flatlined

(artwork by Tony Christ)

Ahhh, yes... The new one from Boy Manik is finally here. Keeping up with his slew of free original singles is "Flatlined", a true massacre of a dance track. It's definitely made for ravers and the later parts of nights out. The harder-style house is emphasized by the gigantic synths Boy Manik uses and the feeling you get is somewhat anxious and tense in a way I can only compare to something like Justice's "Stress"... See for yourself by pushing play on the dance tune below.

BRAND NEW: Housing Corp - '96 and Forever

If you guys have been following TILT this year, you're aware of the name Housing Corp, the winning production team of Nick van Tiel and Skygro. The dudes are fired up right now as they should be as they're gearing up to play Baby's All Right tomorrow night in Brooklyn. To get those lucky East Coasters who will be able to attend as excited as they are, they let loose a freebie called "'96 and Forever" that's seriously fucking cool. Turn it up! & if you're in the New York area tomorrow, be sure to stop by that show!

DON'T MISS: Guardate feat. Stan Sax - Downwind

To be completely honest with you, whoever happens to be reading this, I don't know shit about genres. It's my biggest downfall as a music journalist. I'm willing to acknowledge that. I remember when "moombah" first got big, then "trap", now it seems it's "deep house"... The deep house is everywhere now. 

I get the connections between the sounds and the name of the genre, but I don't get why everything has to fit into a box. I've always hated that. Most of the music I fuck with just sounds good, I don't care what it is. 

This brings me to my ultimate point here, with Guardate hands-down being one of the funkiest "deep house" producers I've ever come across. (Keep in mind, we're sent a shit ton of music, daily.) I dare say he's one of the best to do it. Take his latest "Downwind" original single featuring Stan Sax, for example. I wouldn't call this deep house, I'd call this fucking amazing. Go ahead.

BRAND NEW: Tegan and Sara - Closer (Disco Dust Remix)

Leave it to TILT favorites Disco Dust to remix other TILT favorites Tegan and Sara. I'm smiling quite hugely right now. :)

Right around this time last month we introduced Disco Dust with their incredible single "Fractals & DMT". If you remember that, you'll know that Disco Dust is here to stay. They really turned it up a notch with this one, creating something I would assume is more for their live shows. It's sturdy in its deeper house progressions with their undeniable, more-indie flavor. This one came out perfect. Turn it up and let us know what you think!

Duke Dumont - I Got U (Ani Quinn's 128 Remix)

That good lookin' lad up top is Ani Quinn, whose music I just discovered thanks to the homie Enes at 4AM. He just dropped a ridiculously cool summertime mix of Duke Dumont's "I Got U". You're going to love the steel drums he's incorporated in this. Like, mega dope. We'll definitely keep you updated on any moves this guy makes. But for now, put on some sunglasses, find your beach, take a sip of somethin' good, and turn this one up. Enjoy yourself.

HOLY SHIT: Harrys & Fly and Shwann - Manhunt

You know the face you make when you smell some piss? That just, ugh, nasty face... Up here in the Northern parts of California, we call that a thizz face... But regardless of my whereabouts or bay knowledge, that is the face anyone listening to Harrys & Fly and Shwann's new one "Manhunt" will make. When this shit drops, it's like yo, wtf is this? Gaddamn!

TILT Spotlight: Wiley Webb

Came across this young lad Wiley Webb last week and have been rocking his tunes pretty much nonstop ever since. Dude has a really cool variety of electronic sounds in the mix of his SoundCloud collection, ranging from stuff that's pretty chill to stuff that's more appropriate for parties. The first thing I heard of his was his remix of Rhye's "Open". It's soo nice, so pretty, so lovely... Check it.

And yeah, couldn't do this spotlight without sharing his remix of Katy Perry's "Roar". I had my serious doubts when I was about to push play on this one... But Wiley came through with a really clean take that's mega funky and super fuckin' fun. Enjoy!

OMG: Johnny Roxx ft. Jessie James - Just Wanna Dance

I don't know if I really have any words for this!

Wow, what a release from our friend Johnny Roxx... On his latest single "Just Wanna Dance", he's enlisted the support of Jessie James who provides absolutely PERFECT party-style reggae vocals for this kind of larger-than-life dance tune. I'm blown away...

Turn it up and take a listen below! & purchase it on Beatport if you like it!
