With his most recent mixtape and subsequent tracks, Wiz Khalifa has shown artistic resilience giving his fans a reason to be optimistic once again. He hit Twitter tonight to release a new track featuring two solid contributors. In his typical stony, sing-song manner Wiz floats on the instrumental and delivers a strong verse continuing his experimentation with different flows. It is always nice to hear from Game and he assists well on the chorus and with his raps. This will likely appear on Khalifa’s upcoming album, O.N.I.F.C., which is set for release in late August. It should be interesting and exciting to see in what direction the Taylor takes his second album. In the meantime, a cool song to ride out to.
This might be the most insane remix of any Knife Party track thus far. Lost Boys do unthinkable things to Knife Party Moombah anthem “Sleaze”, transforming it into an all out banger that doesn’t ever let up. Seriously be careful where you play this one because it is very possible people could start having seizures. I have yet to dislike any thing the Lost Boys have released and tackling a Knife Party track is quite a challenge. It starts off taking you on an imperial death march into Moombahcore heaven then slaps you in the face with relentless laser wobbles and sounds similar to Delta Heavy. The second drop is just as ridiculous as the first, Lost Boys truly have outdone themselves with this one. Cheers.

Sleaze (Lost Boys Remix)
“Sail” gets a filthy makeover from the bass powerhouse we know as Feed Me. There’s a good chance even your mom has heard “Sail” but I bet she hasn’t heard this massive remix. Sprinkling perfect wobbles throughout this already bass heavy track that complements these epic vocals almost too well. Talk about an anthem, and to be honest I’m glad this didn’t come out when everyone else was remixing this track because it’s easy to not appreciate certain tracks solely because you’ve heard it 10,000 times and 1,000 different ways. This is a rip that was dropped on BBC Radio 1 on the Annie Nightingale show, stay tuned for the full version, we will definitely be on it. Cheers.
Sail (Feed Me Luxe Edit)
Snoop Lion, aka Snoop Dogg, makes an interesting move trying his hand at a straight reggae track. I feel like he pulls it off alright, but what really stood out to me was the Diplo production. Always versatile, the Philly-based artist displays his electronic, islandy Major Lazer sound on this one. Few producers can match the minimal, but incredibly intricate style of Diplo. Along with this single, Snoop Lion announces his upcoming reggae LP, Reincarnated. The Doggfather sending good vibrations at a time when we could all use some.

20 year old emcee Angel Haze comes hard on her latest leak “Werking girls”, off debut EP Reservation. The trendsetting, NYC rapper spits a sick rhyme over TK Kayembe‘s synth heavy, overlapping drum beat. Her clever rhymes and quick tongue work over the mic make it obvious to tell why, although new to the game, her infamy and star power are on the rise. It’s only a matter of time before people get to hear more from this dope emcee. Her mixtape is available now for FREE.
“In My Mind” gets taken places I never thought possible, Kill Paris for the win. Creating a whole new melody that allows you to drift off into your happy place while these sexy vocals slowly build into melodic Dub heaven. The vocal work that Kill Paris throws down is nearly perfect featuring lines, “Dreams We Had” and “Love We Shared”. This song comes together almost as well as the mix from Axwell, none-the-less Kill Paris is getting better with every release, and everything he does is usually free, so turn it up and enjoy. Cheers.
The Love We Shared (2012 B
Hailing from Canada, Silas Egan brings the thunder with his song Leopard released on Into The AM Records.Through out all this time I have been listening to EDM, I have never seen such an unknown artist on the production level of a professional musician. These unique blends of melodic, trance-esque breakdowns and filthy complextro drops are definitely blends that will pull you into a dream state then slap you in the face to bring you back to reality. With support from people like Porter Robinson, Darth & Vader, and Dirtyrock, Silas Egan is one to look out for with future releases. Cheers.
