To be honest, the idea of an Icelandic born songwriter covering a classic Australian electro tune sounds beyond bizarre, but somehow this is starting to make sense.
Patty Crash, who earned herself a Grammy nod for her work with The Roots, adds her “Macy Gray meets ODB” spin to Sneaky Sound System’s 2006 hit, Pictures. With a little help from the now LA-based Kronic, the duo transform the original electro hit into a trapped out downtempo jam.

Leah Haxhi, NYC singer/songwriter, hits us with another Adele cover that rivals all the competition. Keeping it simple with just minimal piano and vocals, this live video gives you the feeling you are sitting right there in the studio with Leah. At first it seems as if she is keeping it very close to the original, but then the second chorus breaks off into a free-style bridge that adds a unique twist to the song. Live studio visuals by Marin Hamataj and Brenton Ruh also complement the relaxed feeling of the cover. We expect to see big things from Leah in the near future, as she is putting together a demo of original songs and also working on new tracks with various DJs and producers such as Afrojack, Shelco Garcia and Teenwolf, and some other hard-hitters in the EDM and pop world. Follow Leah for more music and updates coming soon.

Your favorite alternative/hip hop/reggae duo ACADEMY is back again, this time with a super fresh cover from the depths of the vault. This little ditty is a spin on the Temptations timeless song ‘My Girl‘ and is equally as addicting as their previous reggae cover of Biggie’s Juicy. My Girl, which was concocted by John That features good friend of ACADEMY and unknown to most, emcee Terrye who laid down some well written bars that fit the vibe of this song perfectly.

As much as it kills us to admit it, Justin Bieber has found his way into all of our speakers. Today we have another Justin – Justin Caruso – giving us his take on “What Do You Mean”.

It’s been a while since we heard from Steve James, but man are we glad that he’s back! Teaming up with Jasmine Thompson, the two give us a brilliant take on The Weeknd’s “Earned It”. Wavering from James’s usual style (but in the best way), this cover still contains the Pittsburg producer’s signature melodic elements but contains a more ambient and atmospheric vibe. His production, combined with Jasmine Thompson’s beautiful vocals do The Weeknd’s masterpiece justice. This one is a free download, so check it out now and grab it before Soundcloud has their way with it!

Last year Australian duo Two Can released a remix of Janet Jackson’s “Love Will Never Do” and it was really good, but after checking out Bee’s Knees new version of the 1989 release (released earlier this week) I have a new preference. Bringing on Jill Lamoureux from Scavenger Hunt to recreate Mrs. Jackson’s vocals and putting their own 80’s electronic feel on the production aspect, it’s an amazing piece of music.

It’s been 3 and a half months since OLWIK released his high-octane progressive house remix of ‘Come Follow’ by Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano. We’re happy to see him back in action and giving his fans more music. His cover of ‘Waiting For Love’ by Avicii takes the song in a completely different direction. At only 19 years old, OLWIK is already showing great maturity as a producer as he breaks temporarily from his progressive style and approaches this record with a pop rock sound. What’s more, he’s singing on the tune! The jack of all trades has a lot of signs pointing upward for his future so have this kid on your radar.
