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

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.

Rae Sremmurd Streams “No Flex Zone” Remix Featuring Pusha T and Nicki Minaj

We could argue about who dominated the pop charts all summer long, but when it comes to hip-hop there is no question over who has been in control of the radio game during 2014′s hottest months.

Rae Sremmurd have risen from obscurity to international fame in about four months, and it’s thanks to the Mike Will Made It produced hit, “No Flex Zone.” The song first hit the net in May, and in the weeks following release it gained momentum in the media thanks to remixes by Busta Rhymes, Lil Kim, Juicy J, and more. If you …

Unreleased Smashing Pumpkins Remix by P. Diddy Is Here

Almost two decades ago, P. Diddy, Puff Daddy, Puffy–whatever you want to call him–reportedly took his turn on two of Smashing Pumpkins‘ classic songs, “Perfect” and “Ava Adore.” The former was released shortly after they were announced. “Ava Adore,” on the other hand, has never seen the light of day. Until now.

This is how a remix should be done. Taking elements of a song, and enhancing them with some different ideas. Removing pretty much every guitar part and replacing them with a vibrant, celestial string section with the drum track, enhances this track to a new dimension. The …

LISTEN: Zedd Remixes MAGIC!’s Radio Hit, “Rude”

It’s safe to say that anything EDM Producer/DJ Zedd puts his hands has the potential to make you love his version a little more than the original.

This most recent remix sure makes it seem like it, at least. Millions of people across the globe have been listening to Canadian reggae fusion outfit MAGIC!’s radio hit, “Rude,” and it’s pretty catchy. As every song being aired a hundred times a day, however, it eventually gets old and the desire to listen to the same track once more declines to a zero. This is where Zedd swoops in and gives the …

The KickDrums Announces EP, Releases “Atonement” Remix

Brooklyn producer The KickDrums released his most recent project, Thinking Out Loud, in late 2013, but fortunately for our ears, he’s already returned with a handful of new renditions of tracks from that record. Entitled the Echoes EP, KickDrums’ collaboration with OG Mattress finds the pairing of musical minds remixing cuts from Thinking Out Loud via the addition of multiple rappers.

The project’s debut single, a remix of “Atonement” featuring LaShaun Ellis, premiered via HypeTrak today, and after some careful listening sessions, it’s safe to say the retooling definitely does its source material justice. Follow the jump to …

Dumb Rapper Ruins His Career By Leaking Drake’s New Single With His Own Verse On It

Unsigned rappers are thirsty fools, and every so often one of them decides to do something so ridiculous it demands our attention, if only to prevent others from doing the same stupid thing.

A relatively unknown rapper by the name of Erik Battle was given a copy an unfinished copy of Drake‘s latest, unreleased single in recent weeks. Instead of keeping the track to himself, like any intelligent person would do, Erik decided to record his own verse and add it to the track. To make matters worse, he then uploaded the track to the internet without permission from …
