Long-time favourites of ours The Knife have been remixed by Cry Wolf, much to our electro-loving heart’s delight. The North Carolina pair took ‘You Make Me Like Charity’, from The Knife’s record ‘Deep Cuts’, and have created a dance hit to be reckoned with. Cry Wolf’s dubsteppy take on ‘You Make Me Like Charity’ also lets Karen Dreijer Andersson’s ethereal and distorted vocals shine through, making this remix both haunting and insanely high-octane.

The legendary electro-pioneer Deadmau5 took to his Twitter today to release a pretty awesome new track. There Might Be Coffee opens slowly with a squeaky, addicting melody and progresses with heavy, thumping bass and percussion inducing a trance signature to the Canadian EDM giant. Although he noted that this version is unfinished, it is an extremely promising sign of what is to come in the near future from the always original artist. This should help kick any of your Monday blues and is sure to come in handy when the weekend rolls around.
The guitar-wielding alternative hip-hop duo, The Knux, is back with a newly released single titled “Animal”. After a brief hiatus from the music scene, departure from Interscope Records and relocation to KoreaTown in downtown Los Angeles, the two bring some West Coast inspiration on this track coupled with heavy guitar riffs, high energy raps and echoing chorus vocals. This is their first release since their Eraser LP in September 2011 and first single off their upcoming project KTWN, named after the place they now call home.

Kicks N Licks throws down a ghetto funk infused Glitch Hop banger that is sure to make you smile. Taking Gangsta Fun’s track “Califonia” and transforming it into a Glitch Hop anthem using some sexy robotic vocals to make you fall in love with this one after your first listen. The level of production in this is so well tuned that every drop grabs you and has you wanting more, just perfect for summer time. Here is also a bonus Dub anthem from Kicks N Licks, and all I really should say is I’ve played it 586 times on my iTunes. It’s titled “Time” using a mesmerizing sample that got me real good after the first listen being followed up by some insane wobbles similar to Doctor P and Flux Pavilion. This is Dubstep at it’s absolute finest can’t wait for him to pump out more anthems like this one. Cheers.
