UZ‘s identity may be trap’s biggest secret, but one thing that isn’t a secret is the music coming from him. UZ has been gaining the respect from some of the biggest names in dance music lately, and it’s pretty obvious as to why when you listen in. Check out his killer remix of Alex Metric‘s “Rave Weapon” that’s stays true to the original, but is updated with UZ’s classic style. Buy the track on beatport here.

Yesterday, we posted Jamie xx’s new 55-minute Boiler Room set in its entirety. You might’ve recognized the first few minutes of it as being a remix of The xx’s “Reconsider”. Just in case you couldn’t get enough of that one track on its own — it’s pretty damn good in that hot/haunting way, we don’t blame you — here it is for you to repeat and loop, repeat and loop. Enjoy.

T.I. comes through with his latest single, featuring The Voice‘s very own Cee Lo Green, and legendary production duo, The Neptunes. “Hello” seems to represent a new chapter in T.I.’s life, as visualized in the artwork for the track. The smooth track is all about looking forward towards the future and the road ahead, with a hook that instructs us to “Just keep going and don’t look back/And look forward from where you’re at/There’s some jealousy in your rearview/Hello, hello, hello.” It’s as though The King is ready to turn over a new leaf and move past some of his old Rubberband Man ways, while proving he’s still no stranger to hustling for his dough. TIP’s eight studio album, Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Heart, drops next Tuesday, December 18th.

“Damn” was the first word I could think of when I initially was sent this monster of a track by The Chainsmokers, and after listening to it multiple times, it’s still the first thing that comes to mind. “Erase” features Priyanka Chopra’s beautiful voice singing incredibly catchy lyrics that will immediately get you singing along after the unexpected grinding electro drops.

Before you head out into the holiday madness to get in line with all the humans of mass consumerism, download the dojo and grab your headphones. You will find yourself floating through the crowds of Grinches. It will be like looking at the world through rose colored glasses, except way more ninja.

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.
Stream and purchase Thad Kopec’s Heart Of Man via his Bandcamp.
