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 …

iLoveMakonnen Continues To Build Buzz With “I Don’t Sell Molly No More”

Up and coming emcee iLoveMakonnen has been the talk of urban music in recent weeks, thanks in part to the success of the track “Tuesday.” Late last night the fast-rising talent made headlines once again by sharing yet another new song, and this one seems destined for radio glory.

There is something beautiful and just a bit strange about rappers who choose to forgo the use of metaphors in order to speak directly with their fans. iLoveMakonnen may not seem like that kind of talent based on his name, but “I Don’t Sell Molly No More” could not be more …

Maroon 5 Release “Animals” Remix Featuring J. Cole

Maroon 5 are riding high on a wave of critical acclaim for their latest album, V, and earlier today they returned to music headlines everywhere with the release of the official remix for “Animals.”

If you have spent any time within earshot of a top 40 radio station within the last month you have no doubt heard “Animals” a time or twelve. It’s the kind of feel good pop track that has helped Maroon 5 make millions over the last decade, with just enough sexuality to make knees weak without upsetting conservatives. The remix features an appearance from J. …

The Chainsmokers Remix Anna Of The North’s Beautiful Single, “Sway”

Our friends Alex and Drew, aka The Chainsmokers, make pretty impressive choices when it comes to songs that they feel compelled to rework. Remixing originals from NONONO, Daughter, Icona Pop, Say Lou Lou, Little Daylight and now Anna Of The North, I think it’s safe to say that the “#selfie” boys have an affinity for female-fronted indie acts, and who can blame them? All of these artists are incredible on their own, but Alex and Drew have the ability to often elevate the source material to a new, club-ready level of exciting.

Anna Of The North‘s “Sway” is …

FREE MP3: Bobby Shmurda – “Hot N*gga” (Boombox Cartel Remix)

The hottest song of the summer has just received a killer remix from one of the hottest production duos in music today.

The word is still out on whether or not Bobby Shmurda has the talent needed to establish a lasting presence in hip-hop, but for the time being “Hot Nigga” is keeping him on the tip of every industry exec’s tongue. He’s the up and comer to beat right now, even though he only has one song that anyone cares about. You may even think that song has started to grow stale, but after hearing the Boombox

Ross talks about the violence in Ferguson and ongoing struggle black men face, with support from Stalley, Gunplay, and Killer Mike. You can stream the track, in full, below:…

If you’re looking for some good vibes on this fine, post-Labor Day Tuesday night, look no further. STRFKR‘s new remix of Portugal. The Man‘s “Creep In A T-Shirt” brings the good vibes, hard.

STRFKR’s added house elements compliment the track very well, and mesh organically with Portugal’s original track. While it wouldn’t have made sense in the context of the band’s most recent record, Evil Friends, this remix is a welcome addition to their discography.
