The experimental remix project of Virgin Magnetic Material, consisting of Shai Vardi from Tel Aviv, take the infectious fast-paced Little Dragon song “Ritual Union” and flip the beat for the remix. Although some may not be familiar with the group Little Dragon, listener’s should recognize the lead singer’s soft and haunting vocals from many of SBTRKT‘s singles featured on this site. Giving this already dope track a new texture and sound that appeals more to a slow-downed vibe. Slower and more ethereal, this atmospheric remix is a beautiful interpretation of the original. Be sure to check it out below.

While trying to battle a turkey-induced food coma last week, my cousin and I blasted TNGHT‘s self-titled EP in the car as we waited for this big box retail giant to open its doors for midnight Black Friday shopping (yes, we are very into “American traditions”). It’s one of my favorite releases of the year and I remain convinced that whatever they do pleases me.
Over the holiday weekend one half of the duo, Mad Decent’s Lunice, released a hypnotic and jarring remix of Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs‘ track “Trouble” that literally buzzes its way into your ear canal. I am not disappointed. Download it for free below!

Legendary emcee Styles P has been taken an indie approach to the game these days. From working with rising internet stars like Azealia Banks on “Nathan” to dope lyricist Action Bronson, SP the ghost is beginning to appeal to a new rap generation. With the release of the AraabMuzik produced single “Araab Styles” off his new LP The World’s Most Hardest MC Project, Philly indie/hip-hop artist Lushlife remixed and renamed it “Lush Styles”. Adding a hazy and atmospheric new beat while keeping P’s dope verses, the mix is sick. Be sure to check it out below.

Prodigy was one of the most iconic international successful bands to hit the music scene in the late ’90s. With their experimental mix of trap and dance, this UK group’s sound was definitely ahead of their time. Recognizing their forward movement on music, XL is set to reissue a remastered mix of Prodigy’s ground-breaking LP The Fat of the Land. Included in this deluxe release is the Major Lazer remix to the smash single “Smack My Bitch Up”. Adding in some reggae sound bites and hints of dubstep, Major Lazer does the original justice by modernizing the sound for a new generation of EDM fans. Be sure to listen to the single below and make sure to cop the LP on December 4th.

Datsik has been dropping this “Swagga” VIP in his sets recently, and the footage of it is just insane. Yesterday he released this massive Trap tune for free, and it’s incredible. Featuring a dark and grimey sound design accompanied with a catchy 8-bit melody. The drops on this track are so heavy, they slap you in the face with the fierce bass that Datsik does so well. The bonus track is another Trap VIP of his song “Bonafied Hustler” featuring some incredible samples mixed with squeaky bleeps and bloops. Both of these songs are free, so lets all bow down to Datsik for this filthy tuneage. Cheers.

This is seizure music at it’s absolute best, Knife Party for the win. This “Rage Valley VIP” is ripped from their Mix Of The Week for MixMag that was released a few hours ago. They start off with a new euphoric melody, then a creepy sample that talks about zombies. No one had the balls to remix this track so KP went ahead and did it for us, reworking it in all the right ways. Adjusting the drops and tweaking the wobbles to allow everyone to once again fall in love with “Rage Valley”.
Also make sure to check out their entire Mix for MixMag titled, “Clever Title Like Deadmau5 Would Use Mix”. It features 19 brain scrambling tracks and you can check out the whole Tracklist, by clicking here. Cheers.

For the next hour you can download this track for FREE, so get on it. Diplo just posted on his Facebook announcing this free give away in support for Calvin Harris’s new album, 18 Months. We posted a radio rip of this massive tune about a month ago, it was first played on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show. The subtle but flawless edit to the original melody is nothing short of amazing, having Diplo and Grandtheft on a track together is just madness. Cheers.
