We Are Your Cannonball (Kerry Wheeler Bootleg)

Kerry Wheeler, formally known as XOXO, has just released this banger titled We Are Your Cannonball. He flawlessly combined Justice’s We Are Your Friends with Showtek’s electro house hit, Cannonball. It’s much different than what we’re used to hearing from him as the majority of his work has been with original and remixes, but it’s nice to see his talent spill over into mashups. Enjoy!

The xx – Reconsider (Jamie xx Remix)

I’m still recovering from how amazing The xx were at Treasure Island.  They’ve been one of my favorite bands for a couple years now but seeing them live only magnified my affection.  Jamie xx, the man behind the production of the group, just recently put out this remix of their song “Reconsider.”  It’s nice little change-up from the original, which I really needed for the amount of times I’ve replayed this song (and every song off the album for that matter).  So kick back, turn up your speakers, and zone out to the latest from Jamie and The xx.

Big Boi – Lines (feat. Phantogram & A$AP Rocky)

This one leaked about a month ago and it skipped my mind to make a post about it but here it is at any rate.  A$AP has been blowin’ up and this is definitely another good look-in for him.  “Lines” is the latest collab featuring Phantogram and Big Boi, and this too, like the previously posted “Mama Told Me,” is off Big Boi’s recently released album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors.  Stream the song itself below and if you’re bout it bout it go cop a download of the album (available via iTunes here).

Pretender (Deniz Koyu Remix) – Miike Snow

Oldie but goodie. Deiz Koyu has been on his game for a while now, landing his name of the 2012 MTV “EDM Rookies to Watch” on top of other recognitions.  If you missed this one make sure to grab it because it’s got to be one of the best remixes of Miiike Snow. Enjoy.

Star Sessions Live Guest Mix – Sam Birchenough (DJ SB)

DJ SB just released his latest house mix about three days ago and its the only thing I’ve been listening to. This kids mixes have always been pretty solid but he has definitely stepped his game up with this one. He eases the crowd into this mix with some great deep house sounds but turns the heat up about mid way through with those driving four on the floor bass lines, and complex percussion. Enjoy.

Rihanna – Stay (Them Jeans Remix)

THIS, is the kind of Rihanna I like.  I’d be listening to her all day long if she did more stuff like this.  I’m loving the subtlety of it, which is a nice change of pace.  Them Jeans jumps on the remix, and let me be clear, kills it on this.  He doesn’t change a lot but what he does do I feel completely raises it to another level.  I hear lots of hints and similarities of Miike Snow’s “Animal” all throughout (just me?) – whether it’s been influenced by that at all I could care less because I (dare say) am a little in love with this song at the moment, which is something I never thought I’d say for a Rihanna song.  Amazing compositions, both the original and the remix.

Bago – I Forget You


This is the first I’m hearing of Bago and I am a little blown away/curious I’ve never heard of her before.  She has a kind of dark, Amy Winehouse, soulful vibe about her that I haven’t been able to get enough of since first hearing this song a few days ago.  I’ve had her Soundcloud running for the past hour and I have to say, I am now officially a fan.  Like/follow her pages below for the latest.

Big Boi feat. Little Dragon – Mama Told Me

I’m a big Little Dragon fan, I am also an even bigger Outkast fan and Big Boi is the dude.  The two come together for this second take off the album, which previously featured Kelly Rowland.  Both are good, but I’m a sucker for Yakimi Nagano’s vocals so I’m gonna have to say I like her version better.  Listen/DL below.
