Quite possible the hardest, hip/hop influenced electro instrumental track we have heard this year, RL Grime brings us Trap on Acid. A genre mash up taking in the best of Southern Hip/hop with club banging build ups and drops. The New York producer who labels his music ‘Future-Crunk/Next-Level’ specializes in hip/hop induced electronics, and while he may not be the only one doing, it is definitely Next Level having successful remixes of Shlohmo’s ‘The Way U Do’ and ‘Over’ by Drake.
Let’s be honest, it is Monday and you probably already stressed to tackle on the week. No problem, invite us to your relaxing sofa or chair and simply put on this playlist while you let some of your worries fade away into the distance. Below we have also added the tweets of some of our passionate followers and their submissions.
There is something about harsh electronic remixes of Indie tracks that get our hearts pumping. Not to make this a rant post but we literally recieve thousands of songs from indie songs being converted into the next “club banger” without any care to maintain the dynamics of the original track. The Dirty Tees have successfully created a strong heavy remix of Wildcat! Wildcat! ‘Mr Quiche’ in a flawless manner. Enjoy the Free download below.

CocoRosie are not your typical experimental/indie band. The sisterly duo have gone beyond the experimental and into the freakish and mystifying realm with their haunting and hazy instrumentation. Their latest single ‘We Are On Fire’, produced by Dave Sitek of TV On The Radio, is infused with trip-hop influences and much darker overtones.
“We Are On Fire” b/w “Tearz For Animals” is out 6/5 on Touch And Go.
Little Dragon’s “Ritual Union” just got a progressive twist by Mexican producer Bufi. The slowed down tempo in an environment of bright melodic electronic notes provides a surface for the vocals of to shine through as much as in the original.
Lower Dens made their way into SXSW this year bringing their Swarming guitar fuzz, bass waves and Jana Hunter’s delicate voice. Baltimore five-piece documented their stay (thanks to ABSOLUTE Vodka and SPIN) showing us the real grind and change in lifestyle caused by touring. Make sure you check out their acclaimed second album Nootropics as well their upcoming shows across the northeastern states.
