Frank Ocean‘s stellar debut album, Channel ORANGE, elevated him to the top echelon of artists in the eyes of many music fans. On his first release since the album, Ocean shows off his versatility delivering his unique brand of songwriting in rap form. Although mostly known for his singing voice, the Odd Future affiliate has already demonstrated his abilities as an emcee on tracks like Tyler, the Creator‘s “She” and on “Blue Whale” he perfectly compliments a smooth instrumental, which maintains the sound consistent with his work as of late. There are few better ways to kick off your week than some new Frankie O. Enjoy it below!
Taylor Gang captain Wiz Khalifa‘s second studio album is due out on December 4th and many fans are anxiously anticipating after feeling let down by Rolling Papers, his debut with Atlantic Records. Today, we get a glimpse with the second single from his upcoming project featuring the talented and innovate post-R&B artist, The Weeknd. “Remember You” opens with a steady drum kit and soft piano with ethereal electronic elements and the falsetto voice signature to The Weeknd. Wiz hops on shortly before the 2 minute mark with a luxurious, laid back verse and returns once again near the end of the track with some melodic vocals.
Check out this intoxicating cut below, keep an eye out for O.N.I.F.C. and enjoy the unique, and entertaining, album artwork above.

Back in June, an unidentified track was released that was rumored to be a collaboration between Nero and Skrillex. Rips of the track emerged from all corners of the internet and despite the constant clamoring for more information about the origin and release of the song no more information was divulged. Well, it seems today is our lucky day, because just hours ago Nero released this infamous track on their souncloud as a free download. “Won’t You (Be There)” is a massive original track from the UK duo that they have been destroying dance floors with during their live sets for the past few months. “Won’t You” along with “Etude” are two new originals that will be featured on the re-release of Welcome to Reality, which is set to drop on October 22nd. So until then I highly suggest you click the download button and revel in the glory that is Nero. Enjoy.
Philadelphia native Andy States, who releases music under the moniker Cruiser, recently put out a self-titled EP this past May. Produced by Jeremy Park — who also happened to work on Youth Lagoon‘s widely-acclaimed The Year Of Hibernation — it includes six glistening indie pop gems, with melodies so sweet and addictive they’ll make your teeth hurt. One of the tracks, “Don’t Go Alone,” has especially been gaining some traction lately, which comes as no surprise given its undeniable, upbeat pep. Also included below is “Souvenir,” my personal favorite off the EP. Its Beach House-dreaminess and cute chorus make it a sure winner in my book.
Head to Cruiser’s Bandcamp page for more music and free goodies.
Over the past few months, Seven Lions, the Californian progressive dubstep mastermind has been producing on an unparalleled level. His latest release, a remix of Velvetine’s “The Great Divide”, which premiered exclusively a couple weeks back on Myon & Shane 54’s International Departures, is nothing short of heavenly. Seven Lion’s emphasizes the luscious vocals of the original with his signature liquid bass and euphoric synths, elevating this trance anthem to an entirely new level. Give this song a listen and be prepared to have this gem on repeat all day. Enjoy!

Everyone please bow down, Dodge & Fuski are here and they brought some insane tuneage. I’ve had this incredible track stuck in my head all day, since first hearing it in Zomboy‘s Mix for Never Say Die that dropped a few weeks back. It samples some catchy vocals that instantly reminded me of “Got 2 Know” by Flux Pavilion. The wobbles in this tune are very unique featuring a distorted melody that hits almost too hard. Dodge & Fuski are on the rise so stay tuned and watch this bass powerhouse slowly take over the world. “Got 2 Come Together” is off the upcoming EP Bad Meaning Good scheduled to drop October 8th via Never Say Die. Cheers.
This track is free once liking Dodge & Fuski on Facebook.
