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.
French group, Club Cheval, and upcoming rapper, Theophilus London, do an amazing job remixing Rihanna’s Jump. The style is in between trap and dutch, and will make you want to ride that pony.
Superstar Rihanna teams up with longtime partner Stargate on her first single Diamonds. Set to be released on her upcoming album due in November, this is a song about love (most likely referring to her new “special” boy) with lyrics that are very hopeful and positive. It’s a slow-paced tempo and has a tender feel to it with phrases like “We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky.” gently singing in your ears. Keep the good vibes coming!

London based songwriters The Invisible Men turn a track from Coldplay’s Mylo Xyloto in to something that could be in a spy movie. Urgent, tense, and interesting, this is great production work. Download link
HAPPY NEW YEARS TO THE VIBE FAMILY!! A fitting track to bring in 2012, saying farewell to a year where Dance Music finally collided with American popular music. Panic City equips Take Care with an array of bleeps..
Rihanna teamed up with producer Calvin Harris and created yet another club hit titled We Found Love. The synthy sound, pulsing beat and catchy vocals are a mating call for all dance floor lovers. And while the original is HOT, I’ve posted a remix by Alessio Silvestro that I think sets off the Richter scale. Download link.
Kudos to my boy Dirty Dodie for sendin’ this jam my way. For anyone that doesn’t know who Alex Gaudino is….He’s an Italian House DJ that has been around for about a decade now. He has done a lot of stuff since then but it wasn’t until this last fall where he made the charts in the U.S. with this single. This is a great Friday song to get you through the day and hyped for the weekend. The vocal feature just adds to the love that’s already there from the beautiful piano feature. This song allows you to just close your eyes and become disengaged with all of your surroundings…only to be drawn closer.
