Can't Let Go (Beat by: Calvin Harris)
Aww yeah, ninjas. It’s the only time of the week known for having a sexual innuendo attached to it. Whether it was meant to or not, Hump Day make most of us giggle, contemplating what type of adult activities we’re going to get into later. Well, this Hump Day, all you need to focus on is a romantic meal, some scented candles, and maybe some fresh rose pedals. As far as the music goes, DiRTY RADiO has you more than covered with their new tune, “Can’t Let Go.”
Set to the backdrop of Calvin Harris’ “Love Souvenir,” (before his captain-of-industry-edm days), this tune has all the 70’s love-infused funk one would hope for. The bassline provides the perfect backbone for the sensual, longing harmonies, fully enveloping us for a solid four minutes. We can all breathe a collective “thank you” to this Vancouver based trio for that, tipping our collective hats with a wink and smile.
When asked about using Harris’ tune, the boys had this to say:
Before Calvin Harris was a massive EDM producer, he was making the dopest slow jam beats no one was listening to. “Love Souvenir” from his 2007 album “I Created Disco” is a perfect example. This has always been a favorite instrumental of ours and even though it came out a while back, we couldn’t resist writing on top of it.
I Am Sold (GARREN Remix)
GARREN has established quite the reputation for his work, and even had people stealing it at one point. Thankfully, that situation was rectified, and he’s begun to truly receive the credit that’s been long overdue to him. Every remix he’s released lays a warm blanket of lush synths and refined drum work over our delicate ears and tucks us in at night safe and sound.
His new take on James Blake‘s “I Am Sold” continues this tradition with the aptitude of James himself along with clear influences from Cashmere Cat and more forward thinking artists. His groundwork for success is strong, and while he still is slightly under the radar, there’s no doubt that his time going unnoticed will be short lived. He has demonstrated mastery of exactly what sound he’s going for, and we need to hear more. Grab the free download here.
101 (Taylor Wise Remix)
We’re no strangers to WALLA, and once we saw that Taylor Wise had crafted his own rendition of “101” by them, we absolutely had to show it some love. This sprightly remix is a slight deviation from Taylor’s normal hip-hop source material, but he reworks WALLA‘s tune into even more of a relentlessly upbeat and positive tune with ease. Fleshing out the drums and sprinkling bright synths throughout, Taylor Wise truly transformed “101” in the best way possible, resulting in an enjoyable pick-me-up that not only will turn that frown upside down, but will actively excite you. He’s given us a free download also, so show some support via ToneDen here and enjoy!
Lucki Eck$ first grabbed our attention a couple years back with his debut mixtape, Alternative Trap, a supremely woozy, introspective take on the trap music coming out of his hometown of Chicago. Since then, he’s continued to delve deeper into that sound releasing an impressive follow-up in Body High positioning himself for big things this year. On his latest single, Eck$’s flow actually diverges a bit from his usual drowsy charm as he employs an infectious rolling delivery to match a jazzy instrumental provided by Infamous Legends. “Cholos” still holds the core facets of Lucki’s Xanax-inspired ethos but does so in a way that feels slightly more energetic with great results. Listen for yourself above–we’re excited to see what 2015 has in store for Eck$.
Tell Me (Prince Fox Remix)
What happens when future meets downtempo? This track has the answer. Australian duo Atlas Bound has been carrying the torch for Next Wave Records by releasing a series of juicy tunes, including “Tell Me”, which is remixed by NY-based producer Prince Fox, who once again proves that his music knows no boundaries and manages to turn anything into epicness.
This ominous tune gets the Prince Fox treatment with bold synths and statement drums. Without tweaking the soulful vocals that much, Prince Fox gives it a Flume-y vibe without overshadowing the powerful vocals that resemble the voice of singer Alex Clare. The combination of the two types of music is surprisingly addicting. If you’re fan of either one of these artists, this track will be stuck with you for a long time. Make sure to grab a free download of this tune via ToneDen or click here. We’re excited to see what these up and comers have in store for us.
