It’s Friday and we’re at a loss of words today, so why don’t we just skip the BS and go straight for the vodka because all we want to do today is listen to free music and do inappropriate things.
As always, #DANCEIRRESPONSIBLY.
Until next week, ninjas.

The Hanging Tree (Bobby Brush Remix)
Future House. Deep House. Call it whatever you want, it doesn’t make a difference. Bobby Brush just gave Jennifer Lawrence‘s song from the Hunger Games a makeover fit for the club and then some. Stepping away from his primarily tropical roots, Bobby clearly has a handle on tackling new types of house music, and has no reservations in doing so. He nicely shook up The Hanging Tree into a danceable and groove riddled track that is prime material for welcoming this weekend in style. It’s available as a free download, so grab a copy and get to strutting your stuff as you prepare for the festivities ahead!

Tom Ferry & Duane Harden Feat. Joe Killington
Better With You (Radio Edit)
Let’s face it, we’re all in need of a little pick me up every now and then. Maybe things haven’t gone our way this week at work. Maybe we’re struggling with something at home. Maybe we’re just in a rut, and can’t quite figure out how to get out of it. For us, we always find that music helps fight through those doldrums, and musicians Tom Ferry, Duane Harden, and Joe Killington have just added a track that will help us through those times.
It just gets better, day by day.
This trio of up-and-coming talent is giving us a glimpse at a wonderfully uplifting house tune that’s ideal for your morning commute, or a groovy Saturday night out on the town. “Better With You” is thoughtfully crafted with piano hits that beckon on those early classic Chicago house records, and a contemporary vibe with a lush, deep house backbone. Harden’s inspiring vocals ring clearly with positivity throughout, and are accentuated nicely by the shuffling hi-hats, hissing atmospheric layering, and pitched down vocal samples.
“Better With You” is available via Ultra Records tomorrow.
Zeds Dead & Oliver Heldens
You Know (Original Mix)
At its base, future house evolved as a genre when it drew from the elements of established genres like funk, deep house, tech-house, disco, and many more. Oliver Heldens saw the lack of groove in big room music when developing his trademark style and saw a possibility for it to be combined with house to be suitable for the main stage. Zeds Dead, on the other hand, have played a monumental role in the development of harder dance music styles and have released tracks of too many genres to count. When we heard they collaborated on a track, we immediately speculated as to what it could sound like.
The musical baby of Zeds Dead and Oliver Heldens, “You Know,” rides the coat tails of the future house movement but exudes a special charm. The Dutch young gun and Canadian producers keep listeners on the their toes as they guide a future funky house train that contains various components of drum n bass, cheery synth dabbles, and scraping bass snarls. Overall, “You Know” presents a combination of the best of both artists and sets both Oliver Heldens and Zeds Dead for massive 2015s.
Next- Too Close (shmallen Edit)
Everyone needs 90′s R&B in their life. It’s a simple fact. Shmallen understands this, so he righteously revamped Next‘s ’97 classic, Too Close, into a lush, dance worthy track that sheds new light on this throwback sound and brings it into 2015 in a big way. Aptly tagged as SoundCloud as “booty,” this remix is just as much a part of the club as it is the bedroom, and Shmallen wasted no time in squeezing out an essential groove for your hump day. If you weren’t planning on feeling sexy today, you might want to go ahead and change your plans, because Shmallen just rewrote your evening with his newest tune.
They Don't Know (Justin Jay Remix)
While big room and progressive house have dominated the EDM scene since its explosion, the underground is beginning to slip its way into the spotlight of major festivals and media outlets. Claude Von Stroke’s DirtyBird Records just recently celebrated their 10 year anniversary of being a leader amongst forward-thinking labels and is home to some of the scenes most promising talent. 22-year-old producer, Justin Jay, was taken under the wing of Dirtybird not too long ago and has developed his own impressive career in a rather short time. He continues to surprise fans with every move he makes and is set up for a monumental year with a secured spot on Holy Ship! and an forthcoming EP on Pet Recordings.
Justin Jay thought it was appropriate to bring out his darker side to fans with his first remix of the year as he takes on the UK’s Disciples‘ “They Don’t Know.” Storming in with a whirlwind of gritty bass shivers, spine-tingling synth chords, and conniving vocal manipulation, the LA prodigy exhibits what true imagination exists in his musical brain. Although this remix does not accommodate to the cheerful crowd, Justin Jay is sure to expose open-minded fans to a world they have yet to travel into. The remix will be released on February 22nd via Pete Tong’s FFRR Records.
