T.I. - Why You Wanna (Doobious & DJ Sweap Remix)


Doobious and DJ Sweap have teamed up once again to bring you guys another way too cool remix for the summer. I'm personally stoked on this one cuz T.I.'s "Why You Wanna" is one of my favorites of his other than "Rubberband Man". Such a breezy tune, and the guys have maintained that vibe while putting a refreshing electro-trap twist on it. Get at it below.

TILT Premiere: Onyx - Slam (Middle Finger Remix)


Last month we shared the mysterious production duo Middle Finger's debut remix of Drake's "Trophies" that took us totally by surprise with its pure energetic sound quality. While they keep quiet about their identities though, it seems like we can definitely expect these guys to provide us all with solid turn up tunes. We've got the first listen on their latest which throws it back to '93 for a sick remix of Onyx's classic "Slam". Go right ahead.



Yep. We're stoked on these guys. Make sure you follow Middle Finger on SoundCloud.

LIAM BACK - BLᗄKK ЯO$E$


I'm legitimately stoked about discovering this dude LIAM BACK. His sound is so fucking fresh. I mean, it's trap, and we're all familiar with how that sounds. But this dude does it differently. It's got soul somehow. It's got vision. It's not just a bunch of noise to make you go crazy. Feel me by listening to "BLᗄKK ЯO$E$" below.



Listen to this one "Existential" too.

TILT Spotlight: Brittany Campbell


I can't tell you how excited I was to be personally introduced to the music of Brittany Campbell. Such a dope girl. I mean, just crazy amounts of talent. Here's her inspiring story...

Brittany Campbell is a Singer/Songwriter/Producer and Visual Artist from New York City (yeeee!). Born and raised in Brooklyn, Brittany got her start as a child performing in several operas at the Metropolitan Opera and on Broadway. She discovered a love of pop music in her high school years. In 2011, she was taken under the wing of award-winning engineer Rich Keller (Ruff Riders, Mariah Carey) and began working on her first project "NERD", which was the product of both Brittany's love of pop and her introduction into New York nightlife. The club scene changed how she perceived music all together. Her music became more playful and bigger. Her influences derived from producers such as Red One, Dog Chow and artists who dominated the club plays such as Robyn, Lady Gaga and Kelis. "NERD" was self-released in 2011 and ranked on the regional club charts at a whopping #7.


'Black Summer' would be her next project. At this point Brittany was more or less homeless and would cease the opportunity to record wherever her friends would let her crash. She was no longer working with a musical partner at felt as if she was starting all over again. Heartbroken, beyond music, Brittany began exploring other other outlets outside of music to express herself. She had always drawn and even began to paint in college. It was the summer of 2012 and she wanted to be heard, make some kind of wave. She began to graffiti. She first started with little stickers and worked her way up to big pieces, then walls. Her art caught some attention and she began doing some commission work. While this was happening, she completed her first full-length album 'Black Summer'.

'Heroes' is her third self-released project and sophomore album.  She produced the album in its entirety. It's filled with guitars, strings, live drums, and huge harmonies of Beyoncé proportions. Inspired by the hipstery sounds of New York Trap, Pop, RnB and Reggae, it's a fantastic listen all around. We've got some cuts off the record for you below...



Be sure to follow this incredibly talented and inspiring individual on SoundCloud, Twitter, and Facebook!

Fabricator - Hempfest


Fabricator is another new name to us today, and another one we think we'll be seeing more of in the future... The track that caught our attention immediately is "Hempfest" named after and clearly inspired by the legendary Seattle festival. The intro to this one draws you in quickly with its trippy synths while the middle relaxes you with its muted beats before the song quickly turns dark into a guitar-driven trap instrumental. It's a rush. Definitely a tune you might fire up to. Enjoy. ;)

Planet Rock - Peach Trees


Planet Rock has come back from their adventures at EDC and have decided that it's time for some new tunes. Their latest track features big room festival synths and trap percussions. The track features a vocal sample from Nicki Minaj and is well down with the track. Peach Tree is a festival banger made for the turn up.

BRAND NEW: The Fugees - Killing Me Softly (Black Boots Remix)

Weird music > basic bitch music. And there's no weirder DJs than Black Boots. Today the Las Vegas duo released their newest remix of the Fugees' "Killing Me Softly".  They took a classic and as Missy Elliot would say, "They put their thing down, flip it, and reverse it". Time to get weird.

TILT Spotlight: Betatraxx (Premiere + Interview)


Not only was Betatraxx kind enough to answer a few questions for us for this spotlight, but he's also giving us the first listen to his new super bass-y downtempo electro remix of Bean's "Cops And Robbers". Go ahead. It's the bomb. A quick interview with the dude follows...



Yo BETATRAXX! What's good man? What's new in your world other than these thumping dance tunes?

Hey whats up!  Well, feels like all I’ve been doing to producing every day, but I actually have been working hard to develop in some other areas.  I’ve been learning guitar, getting real into piano, learning computer programming, but most importantly I just started my own label.  I’ve been wanting to do it for some time now.  It’s really as a means to distribute whatever I want, whenever I want and stop having to wait for approve from some A&R rep at a random dance music label.  Of course for big tracks and features I’ll be going through other labels, but my own label allows me to be creative in any way I want.

That's what's up dude... What do you got on the horizon musically?

All kinds of stuff.  I’ve finished my album and am speaking with labels now for distribution.  It’s a full concept album, but its not a throwback album or referencing some other genre like every album I hear every day.  Id like to think its different.  This might sound crazy but I stopped listening to music a little while back and am trying to not be influenced by any current trends.  Of course everyone is influenced by the world around them, and I do listen to a decent amount of classical music, but I am trying to influence myself from my own music and have it build in its own direction.  

But before that come out I’ll be releasing some singles that are more just for fun and less serious than the album.  Oh! also in August I’ll be releasing a wild track featuring Julliete Lewis.  You can see a video of me playing it here...


Where do you find your inspiration? Like what gets these tracks brewing? How do you keep the sound fresh?

Well the root of all my songs starts classically.  I write a short classical version of each song.  Whether the final product even resembles that at the end varies, but it always starts on my piano.  A lot of the time I’ll write a full song but just loop my favorite part of it and that will be the song.  It kind of gives it a remix / sample effect even though its all original.

You've been working with a lot of really cool people out here... What's been some of your most memorable experiences in the industry?

Soloing back and forth with Slash in the studio has to be up there with one of the most amazing experiences.  We were just jamming throwing ideas around the then someone leans in and goes “you realize what you’re doing right now right?”  and I kind of started to sweat a bit and mess up haha.  Second to that I made a track with Marc Foster from Foster the People.  Sadly it will never come out, but watching him in the studio, singing all his harmonies and layers without stopping the song.  That’s some real talent.  

Holy shit, yeah, that's real... Best party ever?

This is going to be a cop out but I don’t think I’ve even come close to seeing my favorite party yet.  The video of me playing in Mysteringland in 2012 was pretty amazing though.  South American fans are wild.

What's your vision for BETATRAXX now? Like where do you want to be versus where you are now? What do you think it'll take to get there?

I feel like I haven’t even started my career yet.  I’m building a full live show so I can actually perform all my songs live, I’m working on music videos, I’ve have over like 50 unreleased songs.  The problem has been getting the right people behind it to pull it all together.  I have this vision in my head and I don’t want to just dump everything out there and see what happens.  I want to present it right how I see it, and it’ll all make sense.

Dj Rell - Bounce 2 The Beat #B2TB


"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

This one's too fun. Enjoy. :)

DJ Sweap x Doobious - F.A.T.G. (F#*k All The Girls)


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. ;)

Armin Van Buuren - Ping Pong (NCTC Remix)


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.

FIGHT NIGHT - Bad Decisions


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.

Major Lazer - Mashup The Dance Feat. The Partysquad & Ward 21 (Lazerdisk Remix)


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. ;)

Drake - Trophies (Middle Finger Remix)


Ayyyyyyy! A dope "Trophies" remix!

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 feat. Serani & Melloquence - Party Tun Up


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!

Club Soda - At It For Hours


"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!

Julian Rothchild – Trendsetter


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.

I know you're all stoked to see this throwbackish artwork. And if you're not, you should be. Check out the lady Dani Deahl's "purrrnt up" remix of Justice's "We Are Your Friends". Shit's the bomb.
