Alternative, Chill | Aer – Keep You Here (Video)

Posted by on August 2, 2015

In preparation for their newest album One of a Kind, the Boston duo Aer drops off “Keep You Here”. An alternative reggae-rap song that entices listeners with soft-sung melodies and booming drums to accompany the hook.

While the video doesn’t add too much depth to the song, it’s a great look in to the setting of the song and shows that Aer is just as positive and happy as they’ve always been. Perhaps a highlight of the song is the short bridge towards the end which comes in with a light trumpet before returning to the upbeat chorus.

If you pre-order their upcoming album, here, you will receive an instant download to “Keep You Here” and two other songs!

Pop | Duke Dumont Transports Us To 80’s Pop Greatness In “Ocean Drive”

Posted by on August 2, 2015


There are artists and songs in that have the power to transcend the dance space and set their own trends. Blase Boys Club’s Duke Dumont is one of those artists. He doesn’t post meme content. He doesn’t drop a weekly podcast. He doesn’t drop a new track every month. His releases are few and far between, which signals a higher level of care and quality to the music. Case and point: Duke’s new 80’s pop inspired “Ocean Drive” single off his forthcoming “Blase Boys Club Pt. 1″ EP. When the entire dance space is zigging, Duke is zagging, which is why we love him. We expect this tune to be a massive one.

Starting his rap career at the ripe age of 15, the now-23 year old ClarkAirlines has had plenty of time to come in to his own. And it shows. The unique sound crafted by the Chicago native is something fresh and enjoyable to listen to in today’s soundscape.

The expressive vocal tone paired with a witty, yet hard hitting writing ability make “GoodTimingYeah” a standout, and also showcase a snippet of what to expect from ClarkAirlines’ forthcoming project Trill Air.

House | Listen to Gryffin’s Amazing New Remix of Years & Years’ “Desire”

Facebook | Soundcloud | Twitter

Everything Gryffin touches is absolutely magic. A few months ago, he unveiled an out-of-this-world remix of Years & Years’ “King,” as he blended his expertly crafted melodies with the indie soul of the UK band, but it seems like the NYC-based producer isn’t finished with his friends from across the pond. Gryffin’s latest effort sees him dabbling into Communion once again, as he turns “Desire” into a dance music classic. Years & Years frontman, Olly Alexander, is front and center on the remix, as Gryffin masterfully floats Alexander’s soulful croons atop a bed of dreamy melodies and evolving bass lines. Since storming onto the scene last year, Gryffin has been on a meteoric rise to the top, and with his “Desire” remix taking the honors of being the lead single off of the forthcoming We Are Your Friends, the future is bright for the young phenom.

Chill | Kygo releases his new single right before his Lollapalooza set

Posted by on July 31, 2015

In lieu of his Sunday headlining performance, Kygo decided to release a brand spankin’ new single just in time for the weekend. Offering a little slower tempo than we are used to hearing from the Norwegian, the song still embodies every other release that we have come to love from the tropical producer. At this point, it’s becoming near impossible for Kygo to release anything but good music. Enjoy!

I am not quite sure who Aktup is, but what they did with DragonForce’s Guitar Hero famous “Through The Fire And The Flames” is mind-blowing. This metal band is known for their ability to shred up a stage, and that’s exactly what this remix will do to a crowd when they hear this banger live. All of the elements of the beautiful original infused with a harder kick of glitch and bass make this a track that should be on everyone’s playlist. Pick up you free download below and follow Aktup on SoundCloud, I hear they are just getting started.
