Awesome little jam I stumbled upon this afternoon that is now getting major attention on Hype Machine. Electro and down-tempo movement Lance Herbstrong joined by Umphrey’s McGee’s very own Joel Cummins, remixed Xavier Rudd’s “The Mother” with a bang. I love the groove throughout this song – I want to dance, I want to bounce, I really just want to sing along with the lyrics as loud as I possibly can. Joel Cummins adds some truly funky flavor on the keys as we all knew he would. Solid collaboration here and a great track for a sunny day.
It’s tough to say why this duo from Canada hasn’t gained more recognition. WMNSTUDIES, pronounced Womens Studies, have found a niche in blending their signature style of indie electronic with the original track.
“If you started from the bottom go on and come out the closet.”
A clear shot at Drake, Brown then continues on to talk about all the guns he has, finishing off with your standard threats and funeral references.
Zedd blew my ear drum out last weekend while at SXSW, so naturally I should give his music a break. Well, I can’t. The latest Keys N Krates remix of “Follow You Down” may just be why Zedd is sticking around my playlists.
Keys N Krates are a mash-up trio out of Toronto that blend electronic, hip-hop, and trap music into hard hitting and aggressive tracks. I’ll be honest here, I wasn’t a fan of trap music, but Keys N Krates may be the gateway drug into such. If it stops with Keys N Krates, I am totally content with that.

Pretty Lights has climbed his way to one of the top electronic acts in the country, yet has only in the past 2 years been playing massive EDC, Electric Zoo, and Ultra Music Festivals. Well this past weekend he let loose his soulful beats on Miami knocking them down to their knees. He played an incredible mix of his older tracks and some of the new unreleased tracks off his long awaited next album. He sounded like no one else at Ultra and managed to leave everyone who witnessed his set blown away
For the latest drop off his upcoming GOLDRush 3 tape, STS flips Purity Ring’s “Fineshrine” and pairs it with a video shot on the streets of Berlin.
Featured in our first SXSW showcase, The Neighbourhood is a favorite on the site, and we’re stoked that Little Daylight dropped a new remix of their seminal track, “Sweater Weather.” While the original got us tuned into the band by its sheer, grimy earnestness that hinted at now realized potential, Little Daylight’s remix takes the song into anthemic territory.
The buildup to the now sing-songy chorus, expertly constructed through electronic tension, and funky, bridge breakdowns in Little Daylight‘s version, makes you feel as though you’re strutting the whips of the winds of life with the love of another guiding you. That honor-bound hymnal feeling that turns a love story into a fight against the world comes from Little Daylight’s uncanny ability to energize the lifeblood of even the darkest topics.
With two new verses from Kendrick Lamar and a guest spot from Jigga Man, the Compton emcee delivers the official remix to the Sounwave-produced single off good kid, m.A.A.d city. Hit the jump to stream.
“Rhythm Roulette” is a new web series from our friends at Mass Appeal. The concept: get a producer – in this case, the multi-talented Justin of Party Supplies – blindly pick three records out of a record store and see what kind of goodness he can cook up by feeding what he found into the sampler. Based on Justin’s work with Action Bronson and Danny Brown we’re pretty sure those records are in good hands.
