Action Bronson Hops On Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk” Remix

If you have been anywhere near a radio in the past month you have no doubt heard Mark Ronson‘s smash hit, “Uptown Funk.” The Bruno Mars assisted pop hit has been the most played song at radio thus far in 2015, and early this morning we got a sneak peak at the official remix.

Appearing on Hot97 in New York City well before most of the West Coast had even thought about waking up, Mark Ronson informed the listening audience that a remix of “Uptown Funk” has been in the works for a while. The updated track will now …

James Blake

Hear Gorillaz’s “Feel Good Inc.” Remixed by James Blake

James Blake is a man of many talents, and with a lot of talents comes a lot of names (No, not Kanye — well, right now, at least). Donning his alias Harmonimix, Blake dropped a new remix this week that sees him expanding his sound. The remix, a slowed-down version of Gorillaz’s iconic single “Feel Good Inc.”, turned up in a new FABRICLIVE mix where Rich Reason noted it’s from “back in the day.”

This joins Blake’s other notable remixes: Kendrick Lamar’s “m.A.A.d City,” Beyoncé’s “Drunk In Love,” and Outkast’s “Miss Jackson.” When not toying with others’ work, though, …

Kanye West Reworks Lorde’s “Yellow Flicker Beat” For ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part One’ Soundtrack

While the chances of Kayne West dropping a new record in 2014 are looking grim, we’ve been blessed with a couple of great remixes from Yeezy in the past few months. The latest addition to his creative body of work is a re-tooling of Lorde’s contribution to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part One soundtrack.

Kanye shows his powerful production skills in a toned-down and ambient rendition of the New Zealand singer’s latest single. While I was hoping for a verse, it’s clear that it wouldn’t have been a necessary addition – the track serves as a reminder that Kanye’s production …

Fall Out Boy and Lupe Fiasco to Provide New Theme Song for Chicago Bulls

Over the past few years Chicago artists Fall Out Boy and Lupe Fiasco have collaborated a couple of times, but most recently the pair have put their heads together to produce a track for a totally different entity, The Chicago Bulls.

For those who don’t know, The Bulls already had a theme song of their own called “Only The Bulls,” which Fall Out Boy and Fiasco have redone in a more modern style. The new arrangement will reportedly feature an instrumental track and chorus produced by Fall Out Boy and verses courtesy of Lupe Fiasco.

The song is said to …

Ty Dolla $ign & Belly Remix The Weeknd’s “King Of The Fall”

Canadian crooner The Weeknd has become one of the most sought after voices in modern R&B and hip-hop circles, so it’s always exciting to see any release with his name attached. Remixes featuring other artists are a bit of a catch-22 when it comes to his tracks, though, as it’s no easy task to hop on one of his songs and offer something that genuinely improves the original work. In the case of Ty Dolla $ign and Belly’s new found effort, their added verses don’t exactly detract from “King Of The Fall,” but it’s indeed hard to decide if they …

Maejor Ali And Justin Bieber Remix “All About That Bass”

Just when you thought it was safe to forget about Justin Bieber

Meghan Trainor is the latest one hit wonder pop star with an irresistible, albeit entirely disposable single. “All About That Bass” has been taking over the world one country at a time, and in recent weeks a number of remixes have been teased. We tend to avoid these type of throwaway tracks unless they offer something worth talking about, and in our minds the idea of Justin Bieber laying down vocals on Trainor’s smash hit is definitely worth a sentence or two.

Today, Maejor Ali …

Afroman Updates “Because I Got High” To Promote Marijuana Legalization

Of all the one hit wonders that have come and gone over the last fifteen years, none have been able to ride the success of their lone masterpiece for as long as the ever-popular Afroman. “Because I Got High” was an anthem for those who loved weed more than responsibility when it first came out, and now – thanks to a new remix – the song has a good shot at winning over an entire new generation of pot smoking music fans.

The ‘positive’ remix of “Because I Got High” had its world premiere on Billboard earlier today. The song, …

STREAM: Isles And Glaciers – “Viola Lion” (dr00gs Remix)

It’s been quite some time since we last had the pleasure of writing about Isles And Glaciers. The supergroup didn’t stay together very long, and they only released one EP during that time. Even with that being the case, they still have thousands of adoring fans who want nothing more than to hear some new music from them. They unexpectedly came back to life on Twitter recently, and subsequently announced they will be releasing a remixed version of The Hearts Of Lonely People. Though the news wasn’t as exciting as them officially getting back together, it’s still pretty …
