Still riding high from the success of his debut album, “Speed of Life“, Dirty South has continued to assert his dominance on the dance music world with his remix of Monsta’s “Messiah”. His Phazing Records protégé, Michael Brun, gets the duty of the first official remix for the album, a fitting task for the man who’s recent collaboration with the dynamic man from down under, “Rift“, is still rocking sets worldwide.
Michael Brun takes the original melody from Dirty South and adds more oomph to it, injecting his own rolling synth chords, while maximizing the vocals from Joe Gil, a vocalist I expect to see much more of on forthcoming dance music records. Michael Brun continues to impress, and with a 3 track EP on the way on Phazing Records, his future is only getting brighter.

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.

Sev and I have been on top of this rising new subgenre of Neurofunk called Neuro-hop. The subgenre is a blend of Neurofunk (sub of Drum&Bass), and Hip-Hop, with more producers jumping in on the style on the style each day. Disprove dropped this hit today, pushing the limits of where bass music can go. He incorporated a funk midtempo like beat and the best part is it’s free. All around quality tune right here.

It’s Sunday. You’re either exhausted from studying from finals or maybe you got a little too turnt up last night, so getting out of bed right now is taking every last bit of effort you have left. I get it. Now unless you’re one of those hyper motivated freaks who’s already made your protein shake, gone on a 5-mile run and is finishing up assignments for next week, you’re going to need something to get your blood flowing. I got just the thing and it’s BEND’s latest release, Short Crush. So here’s what you’re gonna do: download this song, crank it up bit by bit and watch as you gradually float out from under the covers and conquer the day (well, whatever’s left of it anyways).
Ah, the power of music.

England is getting all the hits it feels like. This track from John Newman is gold, rarely what you get to hear in the US at this caliber anymore. I’m just not that into Bruno Mars and all the other mediocre pop artists, sure they can sing but where is their music like this? Wouldn’t surprise me if this gem made its way over to the US, it’s too good to go unnoticed. “Love Me Again” releases June 30th on iTunes Great Britain.
