[Trap Anthem] Major Lazer feat. The Partysquad – Original Don (Luminox Remix)

So by now you have all heard Flosstradamus’s remix of “Original Don”, well Luminox just dropped one that is just as big. Incredibly genius vocal edit, that adds an extremely hard and thuggish vibe, that with out a doubt turns this remix into an anthem. The sped up style that Luminox features makes this one a dance floor destroyer. Every drop adding something unique and original that progressively gets better and better. Best of all it’s free. Cheers.

[Hip-Hop] Mac Miller – These Dayz (Dope Awprah)

“Yall gonna think im weird as shit” -tweeted indie rapper Mac Miller last night after dropping his latest release, “These Dayz (Dope Awprah).” Under the alter-ego Larry Fisherman, the self-produced track is an avante-garde take on a new sound. Although it is rare to come across rap alter-egos, it is another demonstration of an artist’s creativity coupled with a little crazy. The atmospheric, Miller-sung opera background vocals are more experimental than lyrically dope allowing the emcee to vent about the pressures of fame. Ending with a metaphysical rant, this is definitely something unexpected from the pun-heavy rapper.

Stream and download the unconventional “These Dayz” below and look out for Mac’s collaborative EP with PharrellThe Pink Slime EP, which is due out soon.

[FRESH] Seven Lions – Days To Come EP

Seven Lions a.k.a Jeff Montalvo has really made a name for himself in the past couple of months, recently releasing remixes of “The Great Divide” by Velvetine and Paul van Dyk’s “I Don’t Deserve You”. His subdued yet quietly powerful sound replete with ethereal, wispy vocals has made him unique and distinct in a sea of production-happy Skrillex wannabes. Today Days To Come, a majestic 4-song EP was released off OWSLA and it CERTAINLY does not disappoint.

The first track of the album’s namesake “Days To Come” showcases Fiora’s feathery and haunting vocal abilities while keeping production to a brilliant minimum and retaining enough bass to be called dubstep. ”The Truth” draws heavily from trance influences and exemplifies the primal and simplistic nature of the genre but does not fail to offer a heavy driving bass line and some warp. The fusion of trance and dubstep is effortless and damn near perfect.

My favorite track has to be “Fractals”, a song that will literally punch you in the face with an epically aggressive bassline and a mesmerizing lead synth that will have you pressing repeat over and over. “She Was” featuring Birds of Paradise is hurray! a free download that was released a couple days ago and truly epitomizes melodic trance-step perfection.

Pick up this brilliantly mastered EP on Beatport here and support an truly innovative and refreshing artist! Cheers, ninjas.

Flosstradamus kicks off this week in a huge way, with this track from their new XO 2 EP released this week.

The first is an original featuring Gucci Mane and the other, a collaboration with Snails. Both songs hit hard and are at critical swag levels. Luminox tries his hand at remixing Major Lazer’s “Original Don” and while you might not expect any remix to surpass Flosstradamus’ mix, Luminox does no wrong here and gives the song a new flair. DJ Slink has been giving us plenty of really chill tracks lately, and doesn’t disappoint this week, with his remix of The Shins “New Slang” finishing off the list, but also remixing “Clique” into an instant Slink banger. Next up, Zombass brings some extra creepy bass to get you ready for Halloween. Udachi hits us with some awesome spacetrap vibes of his new EP Space Travel Starter Kit you can pick up free right hereWVTVPVCHI and Skrubz were thinking alike this week, both releasing tracks called “Phat Bass”.

Florence + The Machine – Postcards From Italy (Beirut Cover)

This came out quite awhile ago, but some songs are timeless — give them to us weeks, months, years later and they still resonate, and maybe even more so. Beirut, an indie group that combines folk, Eastern European influences, and orchestral-rock, is simply amazing at what they do and they only grow better with each and every release they put out (there are too many to count). The somber, yet beautiful “Postcards From Italy” is off their debut album Gulag Orkestar, which came out in 2006. Here, eclectic powerhouse Florence + The Machine tackle it rather impressively. Though the cover is far more sparse than the original, it still holds onto the deep-seated sentimentality, while also adding incredible vocal work. Download it below!

[Trap] Nero – Won’t You (Be There) (Baauer Remix)

Nero’s latest eargasm “Won’t You (Be There)” is certifiably epic, solidifying the English duo’s position as being one of the premier electronic acts to date. Alana Watson’s piercing, powerful voice coupled with powerful, destructive chop is nothing short of brilliant execution and production. Brooklyn-based producer Baauer premiered this insane trap remix of the single on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show, and it KILLS. Baauer storms Nero’s scene by obliterating the vocals and ramping up the filth to create a slick remix that is sure to become a staple in many a DJ’s sets. Check it, ninjas.

[Drum & Bass/Dubstep] Spor – Ziggurat / Push Me, Pull You

There is no question that when it comes to artistic vision and creativity Jon Gooch is without a doubt part of the upper echelon of all human beings. Most recently known for his stage moniker Feed Me, Jon Gooch has been generating quiet a buzz surrounding all of his work. From collaborations with groups such as Crystal Fighters, to his outstanding original dubstep and electro originals and even his sensational Essentials Mix for BBC Radio 1, Feed Me has been a dominant force in the EDM scene. However, as a result of this recent success as Feed Me, Jon strayed from his project which initially garnered him fame, Spor. For many months, drum and bass fans around the globe have feared that the legend that is Spor might never return but fortunately this is not the case. Spor is back in action releasing two original tunes, Ziggurat and Push Me, Pull You, the latter being a feature in Feed Me’s Essential Mix. Jon highlighted the release of his latest tracks on his Facebook stating,

“New release on Lifted Music from myself. Who said I left? Genres mean nothing to me, I just love music, thank you to everyone who supports me.”

Ziggurat / Push Me, Pull You comes out today on Lifted Music  and can be purchased here. Enjoy.
