Originally discovered by FNT, Academy has made huge strides since their debut back in October of 2013. The duo has been well overdue for new tunes as it’s been almost a year since their freshman EP ‘Moving Methods‘ was released. Full of funky bass, horns and catchy guitar riffs by producer Matt Osenton, not to mention some fresh turntable scratching provided by DJ Smiles, this new single shows Evan and John’s versatility and progression as artists. Hold Me Down is the first single off their sophomore project set to drop later this Spring and if this is any indication, it appears your summer beach playlist will be full of Academy. Be sure to throw the guys a follow on Twitter (@Academy401) and Like their page on Facebook!

I just want to put it out there, that I do take the time to check my inbox for submissions, and actually listen to everything that’s sent my way, and Aash Mehta has been submitting records since day one, ranging from Melbourne Bounce remixes of Disclosure’s “Latch” to tropical house remixes, and with his latest original, I’m more than happy to debut his latest release “Our Talks,” a chill house original piece with vibes for days. His submission email read “I’m going to let the music do the talking with this one,” and boy was he right. Aash if you’re reading this, keep up the good work, and let’s hear some vocals on this bad boy when you get a chance. This is a must listen and a must download.

No matter how you outwardly express your opinion towards the genre, everybody loves tropical house. It is just saturated in feel-good vibes that transport you to any beach in the world right from your living room. Felix Jaehn hopped aboard the tropical train during its humble beginnings and has risen to the top in only a matter of a year. Last May, he remixed reggae singer, OMI’s, “Cheerleader” and took over global charts in a matter of weeks. The remix hit #1 in Australia, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden along with topping the iTunes, Spotify, and Shazam charts in many others. Check out the revitalized remix above.
