Fresh New Track’s favorite emcee, Jetpack Jones, hits us with his latest masterpiece, Solar. Solar is different than most Jetpack tracks, but instead of leaving you all to struggle trying to find out what that special something is, I’ll just tell you. Jetpack recruited a singer to sing his hook. Usually, Jetpack sings his own hooks, but I think that this is a nice change up and let’s him focus on purely rapping. “Solar” is my favorite Jetpack track to date, and I’m sure his upcoming mixtape, Beyond Infinity, will have plenty of songs just like this for me to vibe to. Grab the track for free courtesy of the man and be on the lookout for the next single off of “Beyond Infinity”

The Bingo Players have become synonymous with quality. Leading the way for their label, Hysteria Recordings, their singles from “Rattle” to “Out Of My Mind” have remained mainstays of DJ sets all across the spectrum. “Buzzcut” departs from their signature synth that has made their sound so unique and a cut above the pack, going for a grinding low end, with a punchy, hardstyle influenced, alternating bass line and teasing, pitched builds. Is this their strongest effort to date? I would have to say no, since it seems to merge towards the trends in dance music, instead of remaining unique, but it is still a good addition to the Bingo Players discography. Oh, and also if you want there is a video of Melanie Iglesias getting a glove show in almost no clothing with “Buzzcut” as the soundtrack, if you want to watch, up to you.

After premiering two impressive leaks from this lyrically-gifted Yonkers emcee, his new EP Wake Up is here in full. While his past releases have highlighted his rapidly-growing skill as a writer and technical rapper, Wake Up is by far his most consistent record to date, and with a decidedly more reflective sound, Maxxx’s personality begins to shine on the record as we hear more of his story. In conjunction with the EP release, we also have the music video to his lead single, “Feels Right”, featuring Sunny Jones, who also produced the majority of the record. Enjoy the tape, and keep up with Maxxx Flair as I know he has some great work ahead of him.

Oh Coyote Kisses, how I have missed your music so. It has been too long since we have had some new music from you guys and this EP is exactly what we needed. The Thundercolor EP is the longest release to date from US producers Bryce Bresnan and Joe Sussingham better known as Coyote Kisses. Trained musicians, the two of them showcase their compositional ability and the ability to create musically interesting sounding songs. The 4 track EP encompasses much of the wide variety of sounds and styles that they have embraced already in their young and promising careers, while expanding their sound even further.
While many EPs sound like 4 random songs thrown together, this one has the sound of a mini-16 minute album, giving you a small snippet of the overall creative process at work with the two of them. The EP starts slow with the soothing “Diving At Night“, mixing a slow piano melody with a pitched vocal and subtle guitar chords. “Stay With You” is most like the unique sound and style they have developed with a blend of bouncy, differentiating bass lines, bright synths, while “This Is How You Know” brings in some rock infused funk with an infectious synth melody. “Changing Of The Guard“, which can be downloaded for free here, finishes out the EP, capping off the short, but diverse journey Coyote Kisses take you on, showing off their musicianship with a prominent guitar and subtle melodic synths underneath.
A project one year in the making, Coyote Kisses give us spellbinding productions that make it entirely worth the wait. Their quality over quantity sound makes it easy to revisit each individual track plenty and with this EP, you will be back again in no time.

I know last week I posted a remix mixtape someone did of MF DOOM, but I am more excited to be posting up this fresh track from the master lyricist. Collaborating with one of Hip-Hop’s top producers right now, Clams Casino and MF DOOM were meant to work together. Clams did a incredible job on this usual DOOM vibed beat, it really sets up MF DOOM to spit as he does, with the the utmost understandings of the universe. No release date yet, but this track will release sometime this year.

Fedde le Grand takes his time between releases, notably originals, and it pays off in the quality that pervades his discography. Coming off of his late 2012 single “RAW”, and one of the Ultra anthems with Sultan & Ned Shepard “Long Way From Home“, Fedde le Grand has been slowly gearing up for an album hopefully releasing later this year and this latest single is his latest effort to hold us off until then. Premiered as this jump off track for his weekend one mainstage set, “Rockin N Rollin” sets itself apart with its chugging low end, thumping bass, robotic vocals and a fast paced synth laden interlude. It is always great to see a new track from Fedde le Grand and this one is just another quality one from the high flying Dutchman.

It is just a natural connection that when I think beautiful melodic tunes that Mr FijiWiji comes to mind. This is the most incredible remix of “Fire Inside” to date in my opinion. Mr FijiWiji’s intro is simple yet elegant, calmly carrying you like a river carries fish to the ocean. The drop happens to be one of the more breathtaking oceans I’ve ever heard of.
