Jose Gonzalez - Step Out (The Chainsmokers Remix)

Since this is the first track from The Chainsmokers since the infamous American Idol incident, I feel I should share something with you guys. First, some background. I have written what feels like a million posts for them as well as interviewed them. Also, I think about them like all the time and they do the same for me I’m sure. The Chainsmokers, Drew and Alex, called me fat a year and a half ago.They’ve also called me “mrjerkalot” and, most recently, told me to “keep it wrapped”. They’re just two awesome guys and, honestly, if you hold that terrible hit song and the American Idol thing against them, then you’re just kind of a jerk.


Enough about that, onto the song. It sucks. Just kidding. It’s an official remix for Jose Gonzalez’s “Step Out”. They have kept a lot of the original intact, but gave it some festival power to match the anthemic vocals. It’s being released on iTunes in two days, the 26th of June.

FNT Premiere- Twenty One Pilots – House Of Gold (Bimbo Jones Remix)

UK electro / pop trio Bimbo Jones have gotten a stellar reputation for their remixes. This time they have been tabbed by Fueled By Ramen to take on twenty one pilots latest tune “House Of Gold” that is now top 10 on the alt radio in the US. The trio work their magic on “House Of Gold”, keeping much of the vocals, and then adding poppy synth chords with intermittent beefy low end growls that give the tune an aggressiveness not found in the original. Other remixes are to come from Denzal Park, Maor Levi & Mike Hawkins. No release date, but stay tuned for that.

Sitting pretty at the number 5 spot on iTunes top 10 album list, Aer’s self titled album might be taking noobs by storm, but it’s exactly what their loyal fan base has been anticipating.  Covering all the bases, the 12-track project is diverse enough to fulfill multiple moods, but stays within the walls of Aer’s self constructed genre.  Attributing their success to their organic word-of-mouth FAMily, David and Carter did spend a fair amount of time writing and recording in LA, but finished the album up in their hometown studio…David’s bedroom.

“In the hills or the valley, and were far from the finale, I want this so badly, no I won’t let go.”

Aside from their previously released singles (“Won’t Laugh”, “Spades, Clubs, & Diamonds”, and “Says She Loves Me”), my immediate favorites are “Pretty Lady”, “Stars” and “Movin’ It”.  Recline, kick up your feet and enjoy this project while you support the dudes on iTunes.

WOW, just WOW! And another great track that forces to me to remove one from my top 10 list of 2013 to include this one. Swedish artist Seinabo Sey’s “Younger” is a masterpiece, from the songwriting, to the production, this track has it all. For her second track made public, I can only imagine what is to come. You’re going to want to do yourself a favor and stream this record, Seinabo in my opinion is in the ranks of Adele and Emeli Sande, and I stand behind my words. This is a must listen!

Electro-House | Thomas Newson – Pallaroid

Consider this a reminder for your Saturday night. Thomas Newson is going to be one of the next big things in dance music with his track “Flute” rocking clubs and the charts and now “Pollaroid”. The internet is buzzing after Hardwell revealed that he ghost produced a top 10 track, though it wasn’t totally clear at what point it was in the top 10, and people were speculating it was this one. My money is on Partysquad & Mitchell Niemeyer “#Pantsdown”, which was in the top 10 very recently, Hardwell’s name was attached to it and the guys have been rumored to use ghost producers.
