What better way to kick off your March than with some new Kid Cudi? The self-produced track features a crooning Cudi bragging about his sudden perception of immortality over a sped-up, reversed sample of MGMT‘s “Congratulations.” Sonically, “Immortal” seems closer to last year’s WZRD project, especially considering that Cudder has his own 30-second guitar solo late into the song. Indicud may still be a little over a month away, but at least we have some fantastic material to tide us over until April 23rd.
Many of you may not be familiar with San Diego transplant Ta’East, but after listening to his dope new Sonata EP, his name won’t be easy to forget. The 8-track EP features some ambitious endeavors, utilizing notable samples on some of its standout tracks, including Jai Paul‘s “Jasmine” and The Weeknd‘s “Gone.” Ta’East covers a vast array of topics throughout ranging from the harsh realities of chasing love to aspirations of wealth and fame. The EP is greatly benefited from stellar production courtesy of Cairo Mayeson, Nyrell, Ken Price, and Hunga, that gives the project a very Kanye-esque feel. That’s particularly noticeable on tracks like “Bonnie” and “No Better.” Check out a few tracks from the EP down below, and if you like what you hear, you can download the entire Sonata EP for free on Ta’East’s Bandcamp page. You can also catch the official video for “Bonnie” after jump, just so you can put a face to the name.

James Zabiela Paradigm Shift Pt 3
What happens when New York’s Ghost Beach gets remixed by synth-pop connoisseur Chad Valley? You get one hell of a slick and shiny new tune, full of heart and sweet bubblegum infectiousness. Check out the “Tear Us Apart” remix below, which will be included on the electronica duo’s upcoming Modern Tongues Remix EP featuring other renditions from folks like Gigamesh, Summer Heart and Penguin Prison. Enjoy!
Tear Us Apart (Chad Valley Remix)
(featuring Juicy J)
I am kind of at a loss for words, but I must admit Juicy J actually kind of kills it on this remix of an already awesome Passion Pit hit. While we generally associate the former Three 6 Mafia member with high-energy, ratchet tracks like “Bandz A Make Her Dance,” he actually has demonstrated an ability to rock laid back beats with out really changing his style of rapping. It is pretty cool that outlandish collabs like this can happen today and shouts to Juicy for keeping an open mind this deep into his career. This, more than anything, is how he has managed to maintain so much relevance in today’s constantly evolving hip-hop landscape. Stream this unexpected remix below and look out for Juicy J’s Stay Trippy, due out soon.
When the time for mega-producer(s) Major Lazer comes close for a new project, he usually drops some extra heat to keep his already high buzz consistent. Yesterday he took to the interwebs to grace fans for a new track “Watch out for this(Bumaye)”. Staying true to Lazer fashion, this cross between EDM and Dancehall pays off for an infectious, upbeat dance number. The dope duo brings in some collaborative help from Busy Signal, The Flexican, and FS Green to make a great listen for his upcoming LP Free the Universe and a free track if fans pre-order the album before it drops April 2nd.

Explosions (Gemini Remix)
There is definitely no shortage to a remix to an Ellie Goulding song. A string of remixes to multiple tracks off her debut album Halcyon have been floating around the clubs and interwebs for the past year. Although some are more necessary then others, each Dj/producer has added their own unique spin to Goulding’s unique voice. Taking on the “Explosions” single is newcomer Gemini with a dub-step re-vamp.
Although dubstep has been on a steady decline, Gemini takes a refreshing and pulsating spin to Goulding’s vocals. Bits of the original track can be heard throughout the 140 BPM range beat and airy melody, but quickly fades with the heart-pounding breakdowns and oscillating vibes.
