Every couple of months my Soundcloud is flooded with remixes of the same song. This month it’s a certain One Republic song, a few months ago it was of, although not to the same extent, a certain The Killers song. “Miss Atomic Bomb” has already been remixed fairly well so I was rather reluctant to post another remix of it. Though I figure it has been a few months so even if this one isn’t the best one you’ve heard, which it is mine, then you at least get to hear a different take on it. The atmosphere throughout is incredible, especially with the guitar during the chorus.

Much like the overweight girl with a great personality, The Chainsmokers have, for the most part, been ignored. Ignored by unattractive girls and the aforementioned overweight girl that is, because they know they have no chance with these guys. Damn they’re attractive. I haven’t actually seen them, except in my dreams, but I imagine with their multiple 100k plus played tracks on Soundcloud that it would be so. Continuing their trend of remixing indie bands, the duo have decided to take a spin at remixing Phoenix’s “Trying To Be Cool”. If you know of The Chainsmokers then you know what to expect from this. A fun, upbeat song with a hint of both house and indie. They have definitely done this track justice, with this possibly being better than the original.

You know how I said Lift Off would be a weekly thing on the last edition which was a month ago? Yeah I was kidding about that. A couple of things have gone down since the last edition. One being I saw two attractive girls holding hands which was pretty cool, the other being we have decided to end Lift Off. As well as us finding this series no longer necessary, we were also not too happy with the quality of tracks that were going up. I know you’re on the edge of tears regarding the end of this series and for that I don’t apologize because nothing is going to really change. The songs that would normally appear on Lift Off will still be posted, just not on Lift Off and when they actually come out. That’s better isn’t it? There has been a bit of a drought of good, free house music for the past couple of weeks so this should satisfy you for at least a day or so and if not you can at least have solace in the fact that you don’t drive a van.
We start things off with dBerrie who puts his own upbeat spin on Kaskade’s classic “Angel On My Shoulder”.
I’m not a huge fan of Bruno Mars. His songs are generally really sappy and sad I just can’t handle it. Luckily though, NYC based duo Filtercrush has made his “When I Was Your Man” into something worth listening to.
Included in Tjernberg’s two track EP, “Watch Then World End” is a fun and catchy song that could easily be on the radio. It can also be enjoyed while sitting on a public bench and crying.

Na Palm, who is currently on his 15 city Revival Road Tour, wanted to give you guys a little surprise and change of pace in his newest release. Always keeping listeners on their toes, he never fails to showcase his wide range of lyrical skills. He slows it way down over an XX beat and brings you on a lyrical journey in this new track “Reconsider”. Na Palm has some major momentum building and it’s going to be a huge summer on tour for him. Be sure to check his tour dates, videos and of course, free music HERE.

Collin McLoughlin is a special artist. I don’t get to blog about him like I used to, because I’m old, tired, and mainly old. I’ve said it before and I’m going to say it again, not many things in the blogosphere get me excited. This new Will-I-Am ft. Justin Bieber- Power cover is absolutely absurd.
You know why it’s absurd? Because Collin sang the vocals. Not only did he sing the vocals, he also produced the track. You read that right, produced the track. We’re dealing with a monster here. “Power” is a exodus from his previous ballad-centric Youtube covers, signaling a change to more contemporary electronic elements. If this is any indicator as to what’s to come, we’re in for a ridiculously hot summer. Show your support by purchasing “Power” on iTunes below.

The day I came across 17 year old Marcus Santoro was a special one. I remember it dearly. It was the last day of fall semester before finals. I was sitting at a table, waiting for my friends, when a girl from class came up to me with a twinkle in her eye, a smile on her face, and asked me something. “Do you wanna study together? I live on campus so we can go there if you want. It’ll be fun!” she said. “No, not really” I replied. She then scurried away, seemingly angry for some reason. It was at that moment I realized that I had made a huge mistake. I forgot to bring a lunch. After buying some food I went back to the table, popped open my laptop, and started browsing Soundcloud. That’s when I found his awesome bootlegs of Project 46’s “Feel The Fire” and Chris Reece’s “Life Is Amazing”. He didn’t completely change the songs, but the things he did change were quite good. His drops were some of the best I had heard in a while. I was also surprised at how clean his mixes were for such a young and seemingly inexperienced producer.
He’s had this track locked away for some time now and has allowed me to give its debut. “Emporium” is the quintessential big room track. Displaying mellow breaks, energetic builds, and powerful drops. Having recently been signed to the prestigous Neon Records, the future is looking bright for this young Australian.

My favorite and your’s, Jetpack Jones, hits us with ANOTHER free mixtape. Jetpack is one of my favorite rappers out right now, because his music puts you in a different mindset than most of the stuff you hear on Worldstar or something. Don’t get me wrong, I like gangster rap as much as the next blogger, but sometimes I need a change of pace. Jetpack Jones is that change of pace. His latest mixtape features terrific bars from the Lakewood native, paired with beats fitting his creative rapping style. The tape is hosted by DJ Charisma, so you know it’s good. Download below and support Jetpack on Twitter and Facebook.
