It makes 100% sense that Candyland would take a stab at remixing “Candy” by Dillon Francis and Snappy Jit. It would also make 100% sense that she killed it, which she did. Not only that, but she decided to deliver it to the internet as a free download. There’s no excuse to not grab this one.
“Candy” in its new form is a twerk-friendly bass track that is sure to get the party started, or if the party is already going, then it’s going next level when this drops. Things get groovy in a hurry with Candyland’s adaptation whose bubbling basslines are meant to get those booties shaking. It’s always nice to hear a great track get a solid remix, which should come as no surprise given the remixer. Stream “Candy” today and don’t forget to download for a whopping cost of $0.
Run (feat. Tima Dee & Giant Spirit)
So far 2017 has shown us that a producer’s main goal is to toy with our emotions. We’ve seen vocalists incorporate lyrics that give us something to relate to and the melodies that accompany these lyrics are capable of inducing the same emotions regardless if the lyrics are there or not. BLVK SHEEP’s last release from his Mind EP, “Run” incorporates a vibrant and raw combination of vocals from Tima Dee and a surprising and very welcome riff of guitar chords from Giant Spirit, combining multiple sounds that leave us wanting more from this budding producer. The energy in this hybrid trap track is potent throughout, yet still leaves room for the emotionally laden lyrics from Tima. Immerse yourself in BLVCK SHEEP’s world with “Run” available for FREE here.
Waiting On Your Call (feat. Park Avenue)
We’re giving Anevo’s latest release, “Waiting On Your Call,” on Monstercat a 10/10. Anevo’s melody paired with Park Avenue’s emotional vocals have created a whirlwind of feelings poised to make it to top radio charts. The track masterfully brings the listener into a trance of past memories and romantic relationships but Anevo does a great job of excluding a depressing vibe and keeping the track light even though the lyrics are ridden with emotional pain.
This Swedish producer has been toying with our heartstrings the past couple releases but proves his ability to be versatile when it comes to his productions. Want this track for yourself? Stream or buy it here.

Lifeline (feat. Dana Williams)
2017 is going to be an unforgettable year for Melvv. He kicked off the year with a #1 Hypem single and he’s already back with another song. “Lifeline” is his collaboartion with vocalist Dana Williams that has been released today through Yebo Music.
Melvv is known for his indie future sound. “Lifeline” isn’t missing that signature and together with Dana he has another hit on his hands. “Lifeline” is a bubbly, chilled out midtempo production that has quite a lot of character. Sometimes indie/future producers lack in giving their singles that undefinable spark that gives the song life, but Melvv is able to do that time and time again. His songwriting on this single shows he keeps progressing, while Dana Williams gives a performance that will rip your heart out in the best way possible.
Prepare yourself for one of the most intriguing songs and music videos you are going to find. Xia Xia Technique of Los Angeles recently put out their single “Wake & Bass” alongside a music video that is nothing like anything we’ve laid our eyes on before. Unique, fun and totally wacky, this video is well worth the watch.
We’ll start first by saying that “Wake & Bass” itself is a great record. The experimental nature of this hip-hop single is one that many should take note of. In a landscape where most are going for a particular sound, XXT is looking to pave their own way in a similar manner to Die Antwoord, who we expect this trio to be influenced by. With the video, things are quite simple. There’s a lengthy haircut and buzz taking place in a hotel room involved, and then a short greeting with aliens. Who would have thought watching a girl go bald could be so entertaining? And where do the aliens come from? We don’t have the answers, but we have the video. See for yourself!
