Ahh yes. WEKEED always coming through when you need some music to make you smile. Straight from somewhere beautiful in Paris I imagine, enjoy their new one "AfterOne" below, along with perhaps one of my favorite remixes ever. :)
"This track is one to get you out of your seats. It has a hype energy level that instructs the listener to bounce to the beat that goes from left to right. LOL I really hope you enjoy this one." - Dj Rell
I guess it's a good Tuesday cuz we're getting hot collab after hot collab today. What we're listening to now is Tittsworth's "Que Fresca" featuring DJ Blass and rappers Jowell, Polaco and Maicol. It's a moombahton gem, one I guarantee will be in the mix of many sets this summer. Super fresh. Err... Que fresca!
Very excited to premiere this new one from Bobby Green. You might recognize the red bandana in the artwork, the only fluid trace of Bobby Green out there as the young producer based in New York City keeps his identity, for the most part, a mystery. I think Bobby is probably best known for his house originals like “My PT Cruiser Is Dope” and remixes like Tiger La's “Deadly Rhythm”. And actually, him and Tiger also have a video you can watch for their collab hit “Velvet Queen”.
His latest creation, "Changing Me”, is a creative collaboration with singer/songwriter Sean Michael Murray. Sean starred in the Grammy award-winning Broadway hit, 'American Idiot' alongside Billie Joe Armstrong, and was also in the revival of the hit Broadway show 'RENT' where he covered for the two leads, Mark and Roger. In “Changing Me", the two young talented and well-accomplished artists bring their favorite ingredients into the mix with sweet harmonies from Sean and a high energy electronic lead from Bobby. Enjoy the stream of "Changing Me" below and if you like it, please support it at iTunes!
This one I think might appeal to every single man in this world. DJ Sweap and Doobious laid down a ginormous beat to accompany a couple of Tenuchi's most profound lines -- "I wish I could fuck every girl in the world" & "Back it up and drop it" -- chopped up and screwed up of course. There's even a couple crucial moans in here from a girl getting...yeah. Enjoy "F.A.T.G" below. I'm sure you'll be hearing this one in the clubs this summer. Just be safe out there. ;)
NCTC has proved to us at TILT at least that there's no stopping him. The man from South Carolina dropped yet another ridiculously cool remix late last week, this time of Armin Van Buuren's "Ping Pong", which we didn't expect at all. Full of all sorts of sounds to turn you all the way up, this one's free and ready for you to do weird shit with right now. Go ahead.
"Crystal Rock & I once again team up to bring you a big room festival stormer that features an electro-tinged hands in the air break and a chunky percussive drop that's sure to set the party off!" - Shwann
Yessir! This one's ridic! Another monster for the summer! Enjoy!
Back in April we introduced this outstanding breakout trio by the name of FIGHT NIGHT. They've had some member changes since then, but the music remains intact. I guess the easy way to describe their stuff would be "emo trap" but I think this shit is just different. Yeah there's "emo" vocals, and yeah the beat is totally "trap", but the result is something more. It's rage. It's Rock n Roll, man. Just let it go. "Bad Decisions", their latest, is available to stream below.
I'm so happy about this particular release. You should definitely scope the Nude Disco Records' SoundCloud page for the whole thing. But man, the dude Tobtok remixing anything with my girl Jane is something to get excited about. This makes me really happy. Did I say that already?
"Catch" by Kill Me Softly features the voice of Jane Elizabeth Hanley, who describes the song very nicely as "a sweet little 80’s classic pop influenced nu disco jam made for falling in love on the dancefloor…"
The Tobtok remix keeps the track firmly in the Nu Disco genre but takes all the original elements and inflates them to another level in his own inimitable style. Go ahead and listen and fall in love with this one below!
The Lazerdisk dudes dropped this one off yesterday saying, "this is a little more aggressive than our previous remixes... for this one we made some fun synth lines by bouncing out weirdo pitch shifting synths then running them through serato then recorded zack scratching them. after that we kinda just auto-tuned the shit out of everything and it all sort of fell into place."
I could get used to this sound from Lazerdisk for sure. This shit's wild. Turn your speakers up one time and let this one go. If you take home the download, you'll definitely be setting yourself up for an awesome weekend. ;)
Can't tell you how many I've come across that just don't make the cut. But this one from Middle Finger, a producer duo that's keeping their identity on the low for now, has all the makings of a hit remix. This is their first release, with more on the way as I'm told. Listen.
Johnny Roxx has been on some other shit lately. I don't know what exactly he's doing, but the music has been getting more and more incredible and diverse and he's really starting to create a sound that's all his own. That Latin flavor is everything. Check out his latest "Party Tun Up" out now on Beatport!
While SoundCloud continues on its new path of removing tracks and accounts due to copyright infringement on these FREE remixes, we're all just going to have to adjust I guess. I wish I could provide you guys a good link to read more on this subject, but if you search Twitter, you'll see that it's happening everywhere, to all sorts of artists, including big guys like Kaskade who has just been threatened to have SoundCloud account deleted. :(
Such is the case with Bad Vision's latest free remix of Coldplay's "Midnight". They dropped this a few weeks back and had it taken down soon after. Fortunately for us, they've re-uploaded it without the namedrop and it seems to be sticking around. It's a fantastic remix. Super creative and fun and I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be OK to stay up. Enjoy it below, perhaps only while it lasts!
"At It For Hours" is the third release from Club Soda and this is certainly the heaviest offering thus far from the LA-based duo. "At It For Hours" has a little Cashmere Cat, a little Flume, and a little jazz. It is a self-described by the guys as a "sex jam" of the first order. The pairing of festival-sized synths with elegant piano solos somehow works perfectly. As any sexy song should, it culminates in a massive build leading to the moment of truth (yahtzee!). Club Soda may be newcomers to the scene, but with tracks like this and the roll they've been on, I definitely can say they will be around for a while. Turn up your speakers and get down!
They always seem to say that no good hip-hop comes from Sacramento, CA. But I definitely gotta disagree. Not only because I'm from there and there's plenty of talent that I know there, but because it's simply not true. I could go down a fat list of rappers from Sac that have made an impression on the hip-hop industry (Brotha Lynch Hung anyone? Chuuwee? Task1ne? C Plus? Hello?), but I'll stop here... Another upcoming name in hip-hop from Sacramento is Julian Rothchild, whose debut single "Not Comin Down" saw a lot of praise from the blogosphere. His latest, "Trendsetter", just premiered via our friends at HOF. It's got a trapped-out beat and one of the catchiest and most well-delivered hooks we've heard in a minute. Volume up? Go.
Nikolas Degas has been back on the grind and I'm stoked because that means we get to hear more and more of his awesome electronic productions. He's always had a very diverse taste and selection and range of remixes, and his latest of Calvin Harris' "Thinking About You" is yet another fantastic creation. It's a bit chiller than what we're used to from him, but I have absolutely zero complaints. Will definitely be taking this one to bed. :)
"Coldplay is my favorite band and I've always wanted to do something with their material. Usually I write new music to an Acapella, but I fell in love with the melody on this one so I decided to just enhance the production for more of a club setting." - Artec
