Oscar-award winning veteran emcee, Juicy J, is gearing up to put the underscore on his return to the top of the mainstream hip-hop charts with his upcoming album . On his latest single, Juicy enlists The Weeknd cultivating a more laid back, but still hard-hitting, feel. The rising R&B star handles the first couple minutes before the Memphis rapper hops in with his trademarked staggered flow.
“One Of Those Nights” has a cloudy, waviness to it creating a perfect synergy between the sound of both artists. Stream this cut below and look out for Stay Trippy, due out next month.

Get ready for another track that is going to blow up. We recently featured a mind blowing remix of Flume’s collab with Chet Faker ‘Left Alone’ by producer Bobby Tank earlier this month. But it is Jeremy Malvin, better known as Chrome Sparks, that just gave the already rising original a tasteful spin incorporating a soft pulsating bass around sparkles of calmly light electronics. Elevating the vocals to a deeper experimental place, the Michigan producer gives us another reason to love him.

The New Jersey brothers, Synchronice, are back at it this time with a crazy remix of Helicopter Showdown and MSD’s “Heaven Sent”. The thing Will and James bring to all their remixes is their own touch of sound. They start the song off as if you are floating around in heaven, some soft lyrics mixed with some relaxing melodies. Slowly the beat begins to quicken and you open your eyes to realize heaven looks a lot like a giant show, at 1:08 the devil comes to party and party he does well letting that bass drop. The boys keep the beat radiating before heading back to drift on the clouds of heaven and then at 2:49 devil round two. Oh Jersey dirtys this song is another notch off the old belt for you two. The thing with with Synchronice is, they just keep getting better. The drops keep getting louder, the bass keeps vibrating my eardrums more, and the way they can mix different moods into their songs keeps working to a T. Keep at it you two angels you.

Sometimes life has us a little distracted with little nuances that we forgot what is most important or what really matters. On newcomer Katrynada‘s single “All We Do”, he teams with motwon singer JMSN to croon about easily letting a woman down because of the simple distractions of everyday life. Although it can be considered a “break-up” song, the blending of smooth, multi-layered production with the R&B singer’s soft vocals, can leave no mate bitter. This is the first track off of the Montreal producer’s HW&W Recordings upcoming EP Kaytra Todo, dropping February 25th, and a dope but tranquil listen.

Canadian indie rockers Born Ruffians have returned with a new single called “Needle”, off their new album Birthmarks. Channeling their more captivating 2008 record Red, Yellow & Blue than 2010′s Say It, the track is punchy and crunchy, riddled with dancing guitar lines, and buoyed so pleasantly by enthusiastic pop melodies and unrestrained joyous yelping. Take one listen and it’ll be bouncin’ around in your head for days. Tune in below.
Born Ruffians’ Birthmarks comes out April 16th on Yep Roc.
Los Angeles producer Bahwee drops major heat while still retaining an ultra suave touch on this swirling, infectious sex-ay jam. “Back it up, back it up, put it on me…” It may sound a little hasty, but don’t be misled — because of all its right moves, the tune’s more of a sensual, irresistible temptation than an aggressive, pushy order. Sometimes you just need to play nice to get what you want, right? Listen in below and m e l t…
