The Knocks have a knack for bright, upbeat tunes. This track, released today, features soulful vocals from fellow Brooklyn-based St. Lucia.
At the peak of their career, Two Door Cinema Club was being remixed left and right into dance floor anthems. Lo and behold, they still are a group worthy of such and that’s how The Chainsmokers felt about them, too. This remix of Sleep Alone captures the energy of TDCC’s lyrics and mixes in a nice bit of progressive sound, creating a nicely balanced sound. This is a really great remix, guys.
Samuel Kopelman, otherwise known as Branchez, definitely made my ears perk up with his emotional and beautiful trapped-esque remix of Rihanna’s Stay. As winter leaves and Spring arrives, look to this song as a track in your playlist.
The Lumineers are an American folk rock band that took off mid 2012. You’re probably familiar with them by now, but if you’re not I suggest you check them out. Here’s a great remix that Mike Posner put together of Ho Hey. The singer did a great job in my opinion… I like what he’s done.
After many years of waiting, JT has finally found time to hit up the studio and produce some new material. Suit & Tie is the first of many as the musician is working on his new album, The 20/20 Experience. From a note on his website, JT states, “The inspiration for this really came out of the blue and to be honest, I didn’t expect anything out of it. I just went into the studio and started playing around with some sounds and songs. It was probably the best time I’ve had in my career… Just creating with no rules and/or end goal in mind and really enjoying the process.” I hope you guys enjoy the first single from JT, which is produced by his close friend, Timbaland.

SoundCloud Link removed, here it is on YouTube.
Released one month ago, Gold has proved to be a huge success for English duo, Bondax. The beat has a sense of innocence to it, as if it’s too shy to express its true colors. It’s not a bad thing as I believe it compliments the vocals perfectly.

Timeflies, a hip-hop/pop duo based out of Brooklyn, has some of the best freestyle remixes I have heard. They’re not strictly focused on making freestyle remixes — as they have their fair share of original works — but when they revert back to their old ways, shit hits the fan. This cover of Ke$ha’s top-charter, Die Young, will convert you into a fan, if you’re not one already.
Walk Off The Earth may not be familiar to you; they’re a YouTube sensation that gained recognition for their cover of Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know. There were 5 of them on 1 guitar! That’s impressive! Now this group is back with an amazing cover of Taylor Swift’s I Knew You Were Trouble, and they don’t disappoint.
