Porter Robinson and Mat Zo‘s anthem, “Easy“gets flipped head over heals into an insane Dubstep bootleg. Koyote has brought us other Booties such as “Space Atom“ and “Stormarus“, now we have “Easy Encounters”. Mixing the incredible melodies of “Easy” with the screeching wobbles from Pegboard Nerds‘ track “Close Encounters”, also adding some great vocal work during each drop. Cheers.

Wale has steady been on his hustle consistently dropping new material in preparation for his upcoming much anticipated mixtape Forlarin. This week, the MMG emcee dropped a new freestyle to the single “Too Much Talk” and a new track titled “The Blessings”. This upbeat, flossing LG-produced track has the rapper in a celebratory mood spitting about his success and accomplishments through his ambitions and forgetting about the haters. The hot beat is only complimented by the DC lyricist’s quick witted, pun-filled rhymes. Be sure to check out the leaks below and make sure to stay tuned for his mixtape dropping just in time for the season, this Christmas Eve.
Los Angeles musician Jack Duff, aka Glass Theory, draws from ’80s pop and glam, making shimmering synth pop that also doubles as bouncy dance floor-ready numbers. And because the weather’s chilly and the sun’s barely around, we could really use his warm beats now more than ever. Luckily for us, he’s put together a special Lost in Winter mixtape full of good-times vibes and body-moving tunes from the likes of Two Door Cinema Club, The Magician, RAC and more. Stream all 30 minutes of it below after the tracklisting!

Well, it looks like today’s forecast includes copious amounts of fireball. It’s a good thing Fireball is so delicious, otherwise we’d be hosed! All kidding aside, it’s Friday. You’ve worked your ass off for all of 2012. It’s time to get down. Lace up them dancing shoes, and let’s boogie.
Not very impressed by this whole apocalypse thing today, IHOP wasn’t even full when I went there this morning. “End of the World” is the illustrious new single from Hunter Hunted ( Dan Chang and Michael Garner’s new project since Lady Danville). We have come to love this Los Angeles duo for excelling at finding that perfect balance between California indie and folk rock. Their latest single feels more like a reset, a fresh new beginning and perhaps the very title could be interpretative as the end of this world, so we can start a new one. Can’t wait what they have in store for 2013.
Josh Ritter is back! The tireless singer-songwriter announced his seventh studio album, entitled The Beast in Its Tracks, due out in early 2013. Along with this announcement came the release of the album’s first single, “Joy to You Baby”. On this track he takes a simple melody and uses it to showcase his beautiful songwriting ability. He builds the song with acoustic strumming and finishes it off with a touch of electric guitar and a quiet drum beat. Despite the cheerful chords, the lyrics give off a sad and wistful vibe. Yet, they come to a close with a little bit of hope. Once again, Ritter has crafted a wonderful song, which you should definitely check out below.
Just in time for the fated “end of the world”, J.Cole drops some new heat for fans all over the globe in his track “2012″. On the appropriately-titled self-produced song, the NC rapper is in a celebratory mood as he commemorates the Mayan prophecy. Mixing plenty of spanish percussion with a fast paced beat and quick rhyme, this is one of the few times we actually hear a party anthem from Cole and what makes this dope single even sweeter is the fact that its completely free. Be sure to go out with a bang and listen to the track below. If we make it through the fated prophecy, then you can hear more from the RocNation emcee when his sophomore LP Born Sinner drops January 28th.
