We already covered the Extended Preview of this song, and now the full version is here. RL Grime pulls out all the stops on this remix of Benny Benassi’s most well-known track, transforming it into a massive Trap anthem. RL Grime is no stranger to perfection and this song is just off the chain. Cheers.

[Folk] Thad Kopec – Red Wolf

After writing music for nearly three years, Nashville singer-songwriter Thad Kopec has released a full-length called Heart Of Man. The collection is an impressive offering of earnest and captivating folk rock, highlighted especially by the distinct, impassioned timbre of Kopec’s voice. While most of the songs are worth multiple listens, “Red Wolf” might be its very best. With a very palpable feeling of sorrow and longing, coupled with wincing strings & brass, it seems to have that “spark” — the kind that makes acts like Iron & Wine and Fleet Foxes so successful at tugging at the heartstrings.

[Trap] Rihanna vs. The Bloody Beetroots – 1 2 Cake Cake feat. Steve Aoki (Crizzly Remix)

Crizzly dropping some Trap, could today get any better? Crizzly says on his soundcloud, “Birthday Cake by Rihanna + Warp 1.7 by The Bloody Beetroots + Steve Aoki’s cake batter + Sylenth hoover preset + Crizzly = this song.“  A few booming big room synths later and you have a Trap anthem. Both drops are equally as satisfying, but the splicing on the second one is just unreal. Turn up the bass and cop the free download, by clicking here. Cheers.

[Electronica] Chrome Sparks – Send The Pain On

Ever since Ann Arbor’s Chrome Sparks flew — or rather, stormed — onto our radar with his bubbly electronica patchwork of a track “Marijuana,” he has held our close attention. His newest song “Send The Pain On,” released just a few hours ago, is a beautifully pieced-together musical landscape that winds, glimmers and is full of built-up surges and an all-consuming, throbbing energy. It’s alive and breathes like filled lungs do. Soothing, yet invigorating, it inhales and exhales, like the rise and fall of a heaving chest.

Send The Pain On

“Send The Pain On” is off Chrome Sparks’ forthcoming EP, due out sometime this winter.

[Fresh] Madeon – The City (The M Machine Remix)

Madeon + The M Machine = Unreal. The M Machine reworks this already incredible Madeon production into an upbeat Housey  track with a stunning infectious melody. The intro features some catchy vocal chops that slowly build into flawless synth work, creating a euphoric take on the massive original tune. Should have this one on repeat for a while, Cheers.

TRAILS AND WAYS – Border Crosser (The Seshen Remix)

Over the last few months, we’ve watched the rise of California’s TRAIL AND WAYS, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the evolution of their dreamy, intricate indie rock. Continuing on with their push of new material, today they unveiled the “Border Crosser” remix by The Seshen, a 7-piece electro pop band from the Bay Area. (If you’ll remember, the original, released in October, is a stirring, personal track about immigration.) The rework retains the original’s best aspects — and even emphasizes its magic & intensity — but it also adds a handful of shiny, danceable moments. Check it out below!

Border Crosser (The Seshen Remix)

“Border Crosser” is the lead single off TRAILS AND WAYS’s forthcoming debut Trilingual. The remix is off the band’s Remix EP due out January 8th.

[HOT] Elliphant – Down On Life

While there’s still a few weeks left in the year, it’s hard not to look ahead to 2013 with absolute giddiness over what the music world has in store for us. Cue: Ellinor Olovsdotter, aka Elliphant, a new Swedish artist whose music is a ferocious & undeniably contagious blend of indie and electronic. For a little more context, her material thus far has been described as the “illegitimate offspring of MIA and Diplo“; as crazy as that sounds, it’s a pretty spot on tagline. Her recently released single “Down On Life” is the perfect big introduction to her style, cleverly putting her in position to really blow up early next year when her self-titled EP drops. Check out the track below and the accompanying music video here. Seriously, don’t sleep on this.
