Explosions (Gemini Remix)
There is definitely no shortage to a remix to an Ellie Goulding song. A string of remixes to multiple tracks off her debut album Halcyon have been floating around the clubs and interwebs for the past year. Although some are more necessary then others, each Dj/producer has added their own unique spin to Goulding’s unique voice. Taking on the “Explosions” single is newcomer Gemini with a dub-step re-vamp.
Although dubstep has been on a steady decline, Gemini takes a refreshing and pulsating spin to Goulding’s vocals. Bits of the original track can be heard throughout the 140 BPM range beat and airy melody, but quickly fades with the heart-pounding breakdowns and oscillating vibes.
Arguably one of the best Tommy Trash originals gets some flawless makeovers in this huge release from mau5trap Records. First off Tommy does a Re-Edit of the track keeping the intro similar and then dropping into some hard and glitchy electro. Next up is Zero Hero and this one features an insane build into an a filthy drop with disco wobbles that hit at all the right times. Tom Staar takes a safer route with this funky house edit of “Monkey See Monkey Do”. The last remix comes from Nom De Strip starting off with a dreamy intro that transitions perfectly into some a mind altering Acid infused Electro. Make sure to also give a listen to the Original featured at the bottom. Cheers.

Mississippi’s Big K.R.I.T. has played an enormous role in both evolving the sound of southern hip-hop and bringing it back to center stage for fans around the world. On his latest single, he enlists one of the south’s most celebrated veterans in Bun B for a smooth, soulful sound. K.R.I.T., who also produced the track, flaunts his southern accent and vernacular on this one shining right aside a living legend. The steadily rising emcee manages to stay true to his roots, while creating music that is palatable to people of all generations and backgrounds.
“Shine On” is the first single off of Big K.R.I.T.’s upcoming album, King Remembered In Time (the acronym that makes up his name), and truly captures what makes him a unique artist. Enjoy and grab a free download below.

After about a 6 month hiatus Justin aka Crywolf is back with a mesmerizing Original tune. Crywolf was formally “Cry Wolf” and featured 2 guys, it’s now a one man show, but still delivering some next level tuneage. Collabing with Ianborg on this track titled “Oceans”, it also features Justin with some dreamy and empowering vocals. The intro starts off slow with some euphoric synth work mixed with heavy bass and an incredible melody. Then dropping into some hot and heavy wobbles with a sound design resembling Adventure Club or Seven Lions. Cheers.
Also be sure to stay tuned for Crywolf’s upcoming EP titled, Ghosts, that will drop in April on Le Castle Vania‘s Record Label, Always Never. I had the pleasure of listening to two of the tracks on the EP, and they were both nothing short of amazing. Expect big things to come in 2013 from Crywolf!

After severely overplaying Rhye‘s much-lauded singles “Open” and “The Fall” the last few months, I’ve finally got something new to obsess over: the R&B duo’s new album, Woman. It’s streaming in full right now! If you dig Sade-like sensuality, or if you’re just in need of something chill and soothing to unwind to, look no further. Pick it up when it officially drops March 5th via Loma Vista.

Pharrell‘s protege Buddy takes to the internet this week to drop off a free musical gem for some hip-hop heads. This smooth, Roofeo produced single is a dedication to the beautiful ladies of the night and the pole. A very atmospheric and chill tune coupled with some witty and punch-line filled rhymes. Not just another stripper anthem though, but a catchy banger that comes with a guest appearance from the talented emcee Asher Roth. Featured on the Illroots Radio Vol. 3 mixtape, hosted by Chase B, check out the track below.
