Coast Is Clear with Chance the Rapper and The Social Experiment
With his upcoming album, Recess, set to drop on March 18th, Skrillex decided to have some fun with his fans by releasing a mysterious app earlier today called “Alien Ride.” Hidden deep within the bizarre little game were 11 files that coincidentally matchup with the tracklist for his new project, essentially providing an early stream of his new album. Among those was this highly anticipated collaboration with Chance The Rapper, which was previously premiered live during a show in Brooklyn last month.
Featuring a chorus that asks “What your interests are? Who you be with? Can I ask a question? Can you keep a secret?” the talented duo pair together to produce a surprisingly upbeat, jazzy number that builds upon the sound heard from Chance on his Acid Rap mixtape. With this dancefloor-ready single in play now, the “Coast Is Clear” for both artists to stage a takeover of the music game in 2014.

Never gonna Change
The ambient, down-tempo synth-pop original is dialed up with some super sexy bass hits, providing a whole new sensual soundscape. Allowing Broods’ sexy vocals to shine through, this remix is expertly crafted, leaving us wishing we had Dimond Saints on our radar a long time ago.
Originally from Santa Barbara, California, Daniel Ryan’s indie style hits a high note in his recently released collaborative EP, The Sun, featuring two tracks: “The Sun” and “Monster.” “The Sun” is a fresh track that stands out because it perfectly combines the relaxing sounds of indie-rock with unique electronic beats.
With influences like Pretty Lights and Bonobo, Ryan mirrors these stand-alone artists by creating a sound unique to him. Delivering on originality, “The Sun” begins with a soft instrumental intro that meshes into an electric harmony between Ryan and Molly Williams. Not only is there one amazing voice showcased throughout the track, Williams adds an unmatchable quality with her sound that connects beautifully to the pulsating electronic beats in the background. This mix between indie and electronic simply radiates good vibes and an electric energy.
With an anywhere, any time type of melody, this is a must listen to track that will leave you pressing the play button over and over again.
