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.

Royal has stepped away from his signature “refixes” to deliver one of the most important projects of 2015. Cycles, in short, is a landmark EP with its combination of a pop mentality and the ever fluctuating “future” state of mind. The level of production quality reflected here is a testament to just how much he has grown as an artist and come into his own sound since his monumental refix tape. He fearlessly has charged ahead and experimented with a slew of refreshing sounds and ideas. He even utilized his own vocals on here, while also calling on Desktop. and Axel Mansoor for strong features that round out the record nicely. It’s hard to not get excited about the future of music when spectacular releases like this are becoming more and more of a common occurrence. Cycles is a crowning achievement of 2015 and Royal is going to end up being a household name in the very near future. That’s a guarantee.

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!
Louis Futon may have recently disbanded as a duo, but that hasn’t hindered the quality of music stemming from this fantastic project. Tyler Minford has taken control and pushed onward through a sea of largely successful remixes in the recent past, which have paved the way for his genre destroying self titled EP. Each track lives in its own dimension, and the progression throughout is comparable to a galactic journey through sound. Spacey synths, immense drums, and a grandiose presence have become staples in the development of Louis Futon’s sound, but he still continues to conquer uncharted territory with ease. These four new originals are also supplemented by a trio of star studded remixes, courtesy of Tjani, Kill Paris and Kasbo, so it’s safe to say that this project covers a lot of ground and has a little bit of everything for all you forward thinking fans out there. Pick up the EP for free on his website!

Stop Trippin' (with iDA HAWK)
IT’S FRIDAY. Kick off the weekend with a ‘saxual’ new tune from one of the best future funk masters out there, GRiZ! Stop Trippin’ is the first taste we’re getting from a new album (Say It Loud) due out in March, and it is a delectable slice indeed. A little bit of trap, old school vocals, and that slick sax culminate into an upbeat number that jumps out of your speakers like its house is on fire. Funk is alive and well thanks to GRiZ and his upcoming project is guaranteed to knock socks off worldwide once it comes out. The Say It Loud tour is going global in February and tickets are available now. He always puts on an amazing show, so you definitely won’t want to miss him in your city!
I've Been Drinking
Prelow is building off an impressive run of single releases – ‘Mistakes Like This’ has racked up over 1.2 million plays, plus ‘Simple Song‘ & ‘For The Team‘ have combined for nearly 500k spins. All three records are featured on their EP, Why Does Everything Happen So Much, which was recently made available on iTunes. ‘I’ve Been Drinking’ is track four of five on the slender debut from the young NY duo. This record draws out memories and solicits an apology. The production is reminiscent of a good time in your life and is very steady. Jesse & Matt played a set at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn on Wednesday to celebrate the release of the EP. Hopefully a tour will rollout shortly.
Nasty (Spor Remix)
The legendary Spor is back with a new remix! Following the hype on the new The Prodigy song “Nasty”, the UK producer is set to take over the revival of drum and bass music with this track. The heavyhitting bass is reminiscent of the classic DnB scene, giving us a retro vibe yet keeping things fresh. Spiced up and intensified, this remix is just what we wanted to hear. Spor made sure to toss in vocal samples from the original song and provide us with the ultimate adrenaline rush. It’s powerful, badass, and it sure will shake up the dance floor.
Whether you like old school drum and bass or not, Spor a.k.a Jon Gooch is definitely reestablishing his status as one of the game’s frontrunners. The hype is as real as it gets.
