Cal and Rez may not always outdo the original artist’s work on any given Timeflies Tuesday episode, but their ability to cover and remix such a diverse blend of genre’s is unsurpassed by few. This week they rolled through yet another viral hit, “Rather Be” from Clean Bandit x Jess Glynne’s. Rock on and grab tickets to see these Timeflies live this fall/winter!

Wait, this is all for a free album? F-R-E-E. Seriously though, Jon Bellion is making lazy artists on major labels look SILLY. He’s single handedly carving his niche in this industry and independently putting more work into one video than a lot of artists put into an entire project. Thought, creativity, collaboration, talent, a tenacious hunger to innovate, and an immaculate focus contribute to the art which was gifted to us today.
“The record was produced and recorded in an actual castle cathedral in France. Live orchestration and all,” Bellion tells Complex. “Me and award-winning country producer Chris DeStefano looked at each other after the final playback and just hysterically laughed for about an hour. We knew how progressive and incredible this shit was.” [via Complex]
If you thought “Simple and Sweet” was cinematic, you might lose your pants when you watch this. Sonically, I’m not sure there is any other artist in the business consistently delivering music of this caliber – mainstream or indie. Channeling a combination of his inner Wolverine and Kanye West, Bellion rocks his heart out for the girl of his dreams. No, I don’t think you understand, he’s going to war for this girl. The creative direction, the lighting, the angles, the scenery, the tone, the wolves – everything was on point. This marks the last release before Jon’s FREE album, The Definition, which drops on 9/23. I’m hoping all of you will accept my recommendation to add it to your library when it comes time.

This track right here is a gem. UK singer/songwriter Only Girl stuns with her single “Feel It” and Mrs. Only Girl I apologized for playing this song on repeat on your SoundCloud, but I definitely feel it, yes I do! Surfing my favorite blog HillDilly.com, I fell upon this beauty, and either I’m just a sucker for soul piercing female vocals, or this track is just really really good! I hate to make the Adele comparison, but this girl might be Adele 2.0, meaning Adele goes electronic, but maintains the soul and keeps it classic. I would not sleep on this record, you’re going to love this one! This is a must listen and a must download!
iTunes: Only Girl – Feel It,

The homie Glastrophobie put the word out yesterday on his Facebook page that if he hit 50 Likes on his status, he would release a new remix, which he did, so today he hit us up to premiere this awesome remix of Born Cages‘ “Rolling Down The Hill” and we happily obliged! The feels on this record are uplifting, and in my opinion the original record is a hit, in the sounds of Mumford & Sons with a touch of Queen, it straight bangs! Glastro does it again, adding his Midas touch to bring us all to church! This is a must listen!

Coming off his last abstract visual production, “Simple and Sweet”, Jon Bellion returns with a track which counters his first single, “Munny Right”. It brings me back to my middle school days when I would thrash on my trumpet. The sweet sound of brass…that hardly ever came out of my instrument, but that’s besides the point. Stringing together an anthem-esque production over slightly deeper, slightly raspy verses & the signature JB hook sound. The OKC folk singer (previously recognizable from Avicii’s “Addicted to You”), Audra Mae, lends her powerful vocal chords for four very heavy lines to complement Jon’s effort.
2moros Record Is A Response To MUNNY RIGHT…. BUT It's Also The Score To My First Animated Short Dropping Days After.

You can hear Jon battling Miss Luxury in his head. He continues to grow, but it’s a constant battle to keep his feet grounded and retain his roots. This marks the third single off The Definition due out 9/23 and will also be followed with a short animated film later this week (likely Thursday) entitled “Jon Bellion’s Luxury”.
“We’re not sad at all We know you have to leave and we’re not mad at all You’ll be back in town and we’ll play basketball And if you fall off track we’ll be your adderall We won’t let your soul drown in luxury”
