The London-based production collective, The Confect, recently released this incredible rework of The xx‘s already beautiful “Angels”. This remix maintains the original’s ethereal feel, while infusing some hip-hop percussion and deep underlying bass. The result invokes profound thought and shows us the breadth of emotion that music can capture. The xx’s second album, Coexist, is set to drop September 11th and The Confect is most definitely a crew worth following.
Tom Budin, a sixteen-year-old EDM producer from Sydney Australia, dropped this remix of Pendulum’s “Tarantula” on his Soundcloud just the other day. The remix maintains much of the original song, but adds some snarling bass and fierce wobbles making it a true dubstep banger. This track definitely demonstrates that Tom Budin has a massive amount of potential. Listen and make sure to check out the rest of his Soundcloud page for more remixes and original productions.

The replay value of this snap anthem “Goin Down” from Yung Joc is almost infinite. Now Milo & Otis works wonders and turns it into an insane trapped out anthem. Talk about a dance floor killer, this track has got me giggin’ so hard and I’m just sitting on my bed. High-pitch lasers have never felt so good on my ears, backed up with the funky beat from the original — this one is sure to make people get crunk. There is nothing Unoriginal about this mix from Milo & Otis and they continue to amaze me with every release. Cheers.
MEET ME IN THE TRAP……TRAP TRAP TRAP TRAP…..

Two days ago I saw Dirtyphonics open for Kaskade at the Freaks Of Nature tour at Bill Grahm Civic in San Francisco. This track was amongst a list of all out bangers that had everyone raging face. It starts off a little darker then the original with a unique intro, then building into the tweaked sexy vocals that Krewella is known so well for. The first drop takes you on a Drumstep infused thrill ride with squealing wobbles mixed with some vox and the original melody. “Killin’ It” was the first Krewella track I ever hear and this remix takes it on a hot and heavy ride to DNB heaven. Cheers.
I am killin it…..

Meet happiness. Meet absolute joy. Meet Mausi. Comprised of siblings Daisy and Thomas Finetto from Newcastle, this duo’s song ought to put a gigantic smile on your tanned faces. “Sol” is like a really delicious ice cream sundae: it starts off with a serious contagious beat, is drizzled with a little bit of electronic goodness, and is topped with Daisy’s vocals that will drive you crazy. The good kind of crazy. Though they have only released a few tracks so far, they are tracks that will no doubt make the top of your summer playlist. Mausi will soon put out an EP, so I’m keeping an eye on these guys and so should you. Now listen to this and feel your body fill with summer gold.
Today, producer Hit-Boy let loose his second track as a rapper featuring his always innovative G.O.O.D. Music labelmate, Kid Cudi. Hit-Boy delivers some impressive, mellow raps and a great chorus over his own smooth instrumental. Since his first mixtape, almost five years ago, Kid Cudi has been one of my personal favorite artists out. On this cut, he utilizes his unique, expressive voice and melodic flow to perfectly compliment the chill production. After his experimental rock effort, WZRD, the man on the moon returns to rapping with a familiar, but evolved, style making his upcoming album, Indicud, one of my my most anticipated of the year. The G.O.O.D. dudes join forces create an August anthem.
John Pena (formerly of reverb-drenched outfit Beach Fossils) is back with his new project, Heavenly Beat. ‘Hurting’, taken from his debut effort ‘Talent’ shows that Pena’s influences now lie with soft electronic acts such as the Pet Shop Boys and the new wave of Scandinavian synth-pop. The track itself is a smooth and flawlessly-produced slice of ethereal pop, showcasing Pena’s fragile half-whispered vocals to perfection. Definitely one to look out for in the near future, ‘Talent’ is out now.
