It almost seems distasteful to share this song without pouring our hearts out on a love note. Stripped down to the bare essentials, “Move Together” is an intimate rendition of love and its very struggles. Wrapped around soft piano notes and light, heart-felt guitar strums, singer-songwriter James Bay produces a vulnerable setting for his vocals to carefully lay on.
Inspired by heroes Crosby, Stills & Nash, Jackson Browne and James Taylor and raised in a the small hamlet of Hitchin, Bay has quickly captivated fans all over the world with his ability to create raw, emotional-driven experiences to the support of his endearing and husky vocals. “Move Together” the lead track from The Dark Of The Morning EP, serves as a warm introduction to Bay’s musical core, confidence and brilliance.
Today we’re offering up not only a live video session of Bay’s tune “Move Together,” but he’s also allowed us to provide you with a free download, in an effort to promote his upcoming tour with ZZ Ward throughout America. So, download and enjoy this soulful gem, and check this website for tour information to see when Bay will be coming to a city near you.
Grandtheft has been on an absolute tear lately, and seems to be getting more inventive with each release. This EP is being released via Jefreee‘s on Mad Decent and contains two originals, one of which features Hedspin. Hot off his last remix of Group Love‘s track, “Way To Go”, it’s nice to see him delivering some more high quality productions.
First up is “Mobbin” and Grandtheft teams up with Hedspin, for an all out banger. It starts off dark and gloomy resembling that of some old school TNGHT tracks. Then drops into some booming synths worthy of a constant head nod, can’t say enough about this production. The second track is titled “Give Me More”, and airs more on the Love Trap side of the spectrum. Starting with a euphoric melody and clever vocal edits, this one hits at all the right times. Cheers.

Sweet Serenade (Featuring Chris Brown)
For awhile it seemed as if Virginia native Pusha T‘s solo debut was destined to be placed into the Detox category of non-existent release dates. Fortunately for fans, not only is there a date set for the much-anticipated release, but we also have the lead single in ‘Sweet Serenade’. Swizz Beatz sets a dark, moody tone for Pusha to spit over while fellow VA artist Chris Brown creates a catchy hook. The full length My Name is My Name will drop on October 8th.
Get Lucky (Remix) (Feat. Pharrell & T.I.)
Although he’s commonly known as the King of the Trap, T.I. has no problems with getting in touch with his inner pimp. He’s already explored this side of his personality on such singles as “My Love” with Justin Timberlake, and most recently, “Blurred Lines” alongside Robin Thicke and Pharrell. One thing that seems certain as we listen to this remix of Daft Punk‘s “Get Lucky,” is that it definitely doesn’t seem to be official. Hell, it’s even debatable whether Tip’s verse was specifically recorded for this track all, as his flow sounds a bit discordant at times. However, we might just be able to chalk that up to the fact that this song was never meant to have a rap remix. Even so, it’s fun to hear exactly how one would turn out. Do you guys think T.I. did an admirable job on this one?
Kill The Noise & Feed Me
Thumbs Up (For Rock N' Roll) (Kill The Noise Remix)
If you thought that “Thumbs Up” from Kill The Noise & Feed Me, couldn’t get any more hectic, think again. This is going to be released on the upcoming album, Black Magic Remixes. It will be amongst other remixes from GTA, Kill Paris, ExMAG, LOUDPVCK, Brillz, Bro Safari, UFO! and more. This is going to be one of the biggest releases of the summer, so turn up the bass and enjoy!
This week Dojo has everything from the sexiest the thing you’ve all week to the filthiest, and everything in bewtween. Starting off this insane track from Bro Safari and Space Laces, titled “Fang Banger”. Ta-ku always representing the sexier side to trap, and this remix of Oisima’s track “Everything About Her” is nothing short of amazing. If you don’t know who ESTA. is, get familiar. This flip of Disclosure’s anthem “Latch” is the only remix I’ve been able to enjoy other then the original. Martin Garrix, Yellow Claw, and Cesqeux on this next unreleased track titled, “Psycho”. Major Lazer‘s track “Pon De Floor” gets slapped with some heavy 808’s by Ookay. Make sure not to miss the tracks from Bird Peterson, Druid Cloak, TastyTreat, 813, and Flosstradamus. Cheers.

BUBBLE BUTT (FLOSSTRADAMUS RMX PREVIEW)
Toronto typically isn’t recognized as something of an independent music hotbed , but in the last year or so, we’ve been pretty sonically pleased by the sounds making their way stateside. Tommy Paxton-Beesly, who performs under River Tiber was the latest artist to captivate this writer’s psyche, and along with the 22 year-old’s new single “The City”, we were also the fortunate recipients of a visually stunning music video, directed and arranged by the artist himself. “The City” is a dark, slow burning piece of electronica complimented with a faint 80’s sounding synth and its music video pairs hauntingly well. River Tiber’s latest effort comes as part of a forthcoming collection of songs, Synapses due out this Fall. Stream the audio track above if you don’t have the time to watch a music video, but we recommend the latter.
