[Smooth] Trey Songz – Na Na (Cowp Remix)

Trey Songz
Na Na (Cowp Remix)

Cowp may not be a familiar name to you, but he certainly has a developed sound not unlike a majority of producers with a larger following. His most recent remix treatment covers Trey Songz‘ “Na Na,” and he flips the DJ Mustard helmed hit into his own (and honestly much more fitting) creation. Cowp’s version is stripped down to essentials and sprinkles the vocals along the sprightly instrumental without any clashing elements and has an overall nice balance. This is one of those cases where the remix transcends the original, and Cowp yet again has shown himself capable of providing a stellar remix like he has for well over a year now. Be sure to catch his previous remix of Portugal The Man’s “Purple Yellow Red and Blue” and support his latest above!

Sunday Night Soul [Vol. 45]

Sunday Night Soul

Before we begin, we’d like to give a special shoutout to the guys over at Soulection, who recently surpassed the 200,000 follower mark on SoundCloud. In celebration of that achievement, they decided to release a new compilation titled, Love Is King, which also doubles as a tribute to the one and only Sade. We’ve chosen a few of our favorites to include in the playlist below, but you should definitely check out the full project. Without Soulection, we probably would have no Sunday Night Soul, so we have a lot of respect for what they’ve been able to accomplish in such a short amount of time.

If you were down in Austin for SXSW with some of our other ninjas, chances are you could use a moment to just breathe and relax. What better way to wind down after an insanely hectic week than with a little soul? Although tonight’s edition doesn’t approach the massive scale of last week’s playlist, there’s still plenty of gold to be found in this one. We’ll let you sift through the collection yourself, so please let us know if you have any favorites! Also, make sure to follow us on SoundCloud, where you can find all of our playlists after they’ve been published.

[Future] JIA LIH – Stronger Feat. Debs

Jia Lih
Stronger Ft. Debs

JIA LIH brings the world some hot future beats right out of his home of Australia. The producer, who’s a part of the Hebinomichi crew, has released an original composition with the British act Debs. Their combining of skills resulted in “Stronger,” a magical tune that, if still Winter, would pick you right up out of the cold blues and put you under the sun. It’s uplifting nature is likely the inspiration for the name, along with the female vocal that is strewn about the arrangement. So far this tune is receiving a good amount of attention, much like his other tracks in the past have. JIA LIH has released “Stronger” for free, so get to downloading it for no charge after you have a listen.

[Electronic] Jamie xx – Alba

Jamie xx
Alba (Radio Rip)

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from The xx and their mastermind producer, Jamie xx, but with a new record on the way from both, hopefully all of that will change soon. Yesterday, on BBC Radio 1Jon Hopkins shared a tune from Jamie xx, which was released a few months back on Nowness as part of the Continuum experimental video project,  and as always it’s a uniquely beautiful and intricate composition. “Alba” carries a similarly tranquility as “Sleep Sound,” feeling like a hazy lullaby powered solely by an electronic instrumental. Little info is known about the release schedule for Jamie’s highly anticipated debut solo album, but if the releases thus far are any indication, it has the potential to be a game changer. Enjoy this short but sweet joint above and look out for new music from The xx, who are set to release their third album this year, soon. “Alba” will be released as a limited edition vinyl on April 18th for Record Store Day.
