Refreshing. And that’s not describing my Starbucks Coffee that I’m currently drinking. Tim Gunter’s new take on ASTR’s cover of “Hold on We’re Going Home” is refreshing, bone-chilling, and majestic. Slowing down the beat and allowing the beautiful vocals to really shine through shows Tim’s brilliance and it’s always great to hear a new take on a song we’ve heard so many times yet still love. Make sure to show Tim some love on his Facebook and Soundcloud below and also to peep the song too. Big things for this guy in the future, and with every new release he reaffirms my claim even more.

Miles Medina, the 26-year-old breakout artist from the San Francisco-Bay Area gave us some time on the phone the other day to talk about his career so far, what’s going on now, and what we can look for in the future.
Following a burst of fame after the release of his “My Neck My Back” remix, Miles had artists all over the map throwing down his track. He even went on to describe it as a “staple” in Lil Jon’s set for a while, and that it was rumored EDM legend Diplo had spun it a few times. Check out the banger for yourself:
Just a couple of months later, Miles would release another hard-hitting remix of Rich Boy’s “Throw Some D’s,” gaining him even more visibility. Shortly after this, he signed on to Monster Products as an official artist, just in time to close out 2013. Since then, he’s performed in a variety of venues, such as the Soundscape Music Festival in Tahoe, playing alongside the likes of ETC!ETC!, DJ Chuckie, Borgore, and Carnage. His performing experience spans beyond his solo career, however, doing shows with Mad Decent-featured and SF-native producer Panic City under the alias URFRIENDS. When asked how his time in the limelight will affect the duo, Miles commented that he and Panic City have “told each other that they are never going to stop doing URFIRENDS,” and “it’s never going to fall apart.”
Just this past week, Miles released a new track that encompasses a variety of genres, creating a fully developed sound that will no doubt go off in the club. The remix of Gorilla Zoe’s ”Hood N***a” is up for free download on Miles’ Facebook page (and it’s definitely worth it if you’re looking to turn up a little bit). We asked Medina what we could look for in the coming months, and he said he plans to release tracks at least once or twice per month, and to look out for some “big,” unnamed collaborations. Don’t forget to give Miles a follow on his social media outlets: you won’t be disappointed.

Holy Ghost! 2 weeks ago released a dope remix of Blood Orange’s “You’re Not Good Enough” and it’s been on repeat all day ever since I saw it sitting on the Hypem chart. Ghost! is currently on tour and you can view the dates on his website here. I personally might have to check him out at Webster Hall on January 10th. If you’re looking for good vibes, funky guitar lines, and something you can move to, this track is for you. Get that free download! This is a must listen!

This song has a great use of saxophone, and who doesn’t love the saxophone? With a little housey-house and some good lyrics, Claptone and Gamper & Dadoni make for a deep, mellow, enjoyable song.

Some of you probably remember a few weeks back when I unleashed “Look Out!” to the FNT readers, a bass-heavy medley from NYC producer, Ghost Hunna. Well, Yung Hunna -no affiliation to Yung Humma- has returned to blow our minds once more.
This go-round Hunna steers away from his original production and hops aboard Danny Brown’s eccentric, “Dip”, in an attempt to make it even more outlandish. And, folks, he accomplished the impossible. The only element which you should expect in this bootleg is the element which you least expected. “Dip” is all across the board, complete with broken chords and a pounding UK-style bass line perfect for the club, car, or kitchen.

8 new mashups from Kap Slap, yes please? As a thank you / celebration for hitting 100K fans on Facebook, Kap Slap has released his latest project, for free. Kap Slap has already established himself as one of the best when it comes to mashups; his creativity and ability to seamlessly blend tracks of opposite genres is unparalleled. Below is one of my favorites – Kap Slap takes a tech house banger, throws some T-Swift & a Stacy’s Mom sample over it to create an 80′s banger that deserves this decades attention.
