Liquid Step, WTF is that? Well just listen and you’ll see, but it’s pretty much Love Step or Chill Step, but in Liquid form of course. Draper absolutely murders this ultra sexy remix of Ellie Goulding‘s indie anthem “Hanging On”. Adding some subtle but still very impressive wobbles that enhance this melodic track in all the right ways. This track wouldn’t be complete without some epic vocal work, and it features some flawless splicing at all the right times. This a collab I could only dream about until now, so all we need is for Adventure Club to remix this track and then my life will officially be complete. Cheers.

Yes you read correctly, this is Florence minus The Machine and Calvin Harris on the same track. Who said summer was over, because I’m pretty sure these two had other plans. They deliver quite possibly my favorite track from Calvin Harris ever, and with an unexpected collab. Featuring an infectious melody that mixes perfectly with the empowering vocals of Florence Welch. This chick has got it all featuring a wide range of vocal work that is sure to get stuck in your head upon first listen. I have a feeling that when Calvin remixed Florence’s track “Spectrum”, they realized the collab had to happen again. Not much more to be said about this incredible anthem, so just enjoy the rest of the weekend and rage to this. Cheers.

Having collaborated with a wide spectrum of artists including hip-hop singer Usher and downtempo/jazz artist Sia, David Guetta furthers his musical versatility by working with Alesso, and duo Tegan and Sara. The Canadian folk duo’s voices first gained mass recognition through Tiesto’s hit “Feel it in my Bones” and have most recently been featured in Morgan Page’s “Body Work”. This new track kicks off with Alesso’s relished elate sound and eases into Tegan and Sara’s dynamic interplay of vocals and signature silvern voices, which give the song its unforgettable hook.
Check out more of Guetta’s well-anticipated re-release of Nothing but the Beat, titled Nothing But The Beat 2.0, featuring Sia, Ne-Yo & Akon, Taped Rai, Nervo and more.

Avicii has a damn easy button in his studio, and every time he clicks it, out comes a house anthem. I have never been a fan of Mike Posner so be completely honest this one was almost ruined solely for that reason. None-the-less this track has a summery uplifting vibe that Avicii is so well known for. Bringing some awesome chords to accompany the simple, but infectious melody that he delivers. This track was ripped from his Creamfields set and was extended by Overline. We will definitely be covering the full version so stay tuned! Cheers.

Last night I watched Krewella absolutely destroy Ruby Skye in San Francisco. So it’s only appropriate that I stumble upon this brain scrambling remix of their track “One Minute” from DotEXE. This is Drumstep at it’s finest, featuring some sexy vocal editing to enhance the already amazing voices from these sexy beasts we know as Krewella. Improving a production from this group is quite a task but DotEXE did some serious work especially with this first drop. This remix just hits at all the right times allowing me to once again, be completely obsessed with a Krewella track. Repeat, repeat, repeat. Cheers.

Oakland rap duo Main Attrakionz have carved out a sound of their own that embodies the more experimental side of the Bay Area hip-hop scene. While artists like E-40 and Too $hort continue to manufacture Bay trademarked hits, newcomers like the Main Attrakionz push that classic style forward progressing with little regard for genre boundaries. On their latest single, “Do It For The Bay,” Squadda B and Mondre M.A.N. enlist a fellow emerging emcee from across the Bay Bridge, DaVinci, who hails from the Fillmore in San Francisco. Over the some smooth signature “musica de Harry Fraud,” the three rappers pay homage to their respective homes with the distinct slang and feel of the Yay Area.
Stream and download this Northern California anthem below. The Main Attrakionz upcoming album, Bossalinis & Fooliyones, is due out on October 23rd on Young One Records. Also, look out for DaVinci’s LP, The MOEna Lisa, which is set to drop on October 17th.
