Up-and-coming chill duo Keep Shelly In Athens have reworked San Fran artist Tycho’s track ‘Dive’, off his hotly-anticipated LP of the same name. Having slowed down the beats to a hypnotic pace, ‘Dive has become a jittery collection of sparkling synth and cicada-esque noises. One for fans of chillwave such as Memory Tapes and Washed Out, ‘Dive’ will be a summer must-have.
Hot talent Santigold is back to whet your appetites with another single from her forthcoming record, ‘Master Of My Make-Believe’ (out May 1). ‘Disparate Youth’ is a gloriously energetic track with some powerful beats and vocals from Santi, creating a musical world to lose yourself in. The ‘Disparate Youth’ EP is out now on iTunes, featuring some cracking remixes from Switch, The 2 Bears, and Amateur Best.
Parisian trio We Are Knights have head their new track ‘Tears’ featured on the prestigious indie-electro label Kitsune’s latest sampler, and deservedly so. With sultry guitars and hazy synths complementing Jean-Marc Battelier’s wistful vocals, ‘Tears’ is the perfect soundtrack for whiling away a lazy day in the sunshine.
We’ve seen the adorable cousins Sophia Grace & Rosie appear on the Ellen Show a couple of times last year, most notably performing a Nicki Minaj song, but what you are about to witness is by far the most adorable and skilled video coming from a 8 year old. She has the confidence, the flow, the swag and a jaw dropping voice for her size. It is literally the cutest and dopest video I have seen this year. Enjoy.
Andain is a San Francisco experimental electronica group that we haven’t ever posted on until today. None the less, we’re stoked that the duo hit us up with the remix package that just dropped yesterday on Black Hole Records. Andain is made up of Mavie Marcos and Josh Gabriel and have been together since 2000. Their ambient trancy style is perfect to chill out to – but it’s also great for remixes. Especially drum and bass, and dubstep remixes.
First up we have a chill remix from Zetandel. This remix is actually a free giveaway on Andain’s page, so make sure you head over there and pick it up. The three other remixes are from the likes of Relay and Front, Rido, and Shreddward and Exceed. They range from drum and bass to dubstep, but all maintain the attractive vocals of Andain’s lead singer, Mavie.
Andain is currently in the mix at the IDMA awards for ‘Best Chillout Track’ and ‘Best Trance Track’. Voting for that closes on Thursday, so make sure to vote soon!

The Griswolds are a brilliant new indie pop group from Sydney who’ve been making a lot of noise on the net recently. The band’s new track “Mississippi” is an incredibly colorful and upbeat cut that practically embodies the summer season in its upbeat feel. Between the clean guitar rhythms,the memorable drums, and excited vocal parts “Mississippi” sounds like it should be on the commercial for a water park. Stream it below and you’ll know what I mean.
The song is available for free download HERE.
We know New Jersey producer Aylen very well from the massive amount of filthy electro tracks he has been putting out. Early this year we featured ‘The Remixtape‘, containing banging remixes of “Alesso – Raise Your Head”, “Edward Maya Ft Vika – Stereo Love” and “Coldplay – The Scientist”. In a surprising turn of events Aylen went from hardcore electro, to hardcore moombahton, a progression not many can afford to. The uplifting original ‘Infinity’ by Texas producer Distantt has been completely hijacked by Aylen into a much aggressive mash of grinding dubstep at the 110-moombahton-bpm. The result is a floor-friendly gritty dance track for those wanting more out of their Moombahton nights. With whatever style Aylen has experimented with, he seems to be pulling it over every single time. You can follow him on his soundcloud here.
