FLOSSTRADAMUS – B⚠NNED 2

OH have I been ready for another one of these.  The Flossy duo put out their first B⚠NNED mix back in August (see here) which featured some of the best up and coming trap artists of 2012 and 2013 respectively and does so again here in the mixtape’s second installment.  Again, this is another piece of trapical epicness and could not have come at a better time.  Alas, it is finally the weekend. So grab some Henny, put on your gold chain(s), find a bad b**** (lady dancer) and turn up tonight to this very based mix from FLOSSTRADAMUS.

50 Cent + Justin Timberlake – Ayo Technology (Mr. Larsson Remix)

Got a nice track here for you – a remix of Justin Timberlake and 50 Cent‘s Ayo Technology done by the gentleman who brought us that spectacular remix of Primadonna that made it onto my Best of 2012 list. This track is a little more mellow, but the dominant synths and chill-trap beats kept me wrapped in the whole time. I really think you’ll like the production that went into this track. Make sure to pay Mr. Larsson a visit to make sure you stay up on all that he releases.

Nervo & Hook N Sling – Reason (CreamyCookies Remix)

Creamy Cookies, the duo that have proven themselves time and time again with their unique and ever so addicting remixes, are back with yet another spectacular remix. As a part of Spinnin’ Records talent pool, they took on Nervo’s Reason and did an absolutely beautiful job remixing it. They stripped the vocals and created a completely new track out of them. Make sure to throw them a well deserved VOTE. Enjoy.

Bastille – Pompeii (Kat Krazy Remix)

     We just recently posted the Monsieur Adi remix of this, which has thus far been a seemingly big hit.  Kat Krazy is the latest to put his spin on the English band’s most recent single, which officially, is still not out yet.  The song itself is set to be released February 24, with Bastille‘s debut album Bad Blood being released in its entirety March 4.  Until then I’d expect this song and hopefully the rest of the album as soon as it’s out, to continue to be remixed (especially if they’re anything as good as these two).  Keep up with Bastille and Kat Krazy via the links below.

Dada Life – So Young So High (Dillon Francis Remix)

I’ve been enjoying the original version of this for a few months now and I’m happy to see Dillon Francis to be the first big name to have a go at a remix.  It definitely gives off a trademark DF sound with it’s bubbly chops and crashes and you can certainly hear the trap influences in effect.  Unfortunately this one is not available for free purchase but you can pick it up at Beatport if you feel like shelling out a couple bucks.  Don’t forget to follow/like Dillon Francis‘ pages below if you haven’t already.

Marina & The Diamonds – How To Be A Heartbreaker (Dada Life Remix)

     Dada Life jumps on Marina & The Diamonds‘ “How To Be A Heartbreaker” and, as expected, raises it to a whole ‘nother level.  This past year was without a doubt Marina’s breakout year with Electra Heart and all.  I’m excited to see what she brings forth this year because I do actually enjoy a lot of her music and I don’t think she’s just another pretty face in the pop world.  I’m always interested to see what the Dada duo puts out too.  Their last album The Rules of Dada (released October 2012) was a success and you’d expect them to continue their domination of the electro-house charts in 2013.  This is their latest remix and is only a preview.  The exact release date is still unclear but be sure to check back here for the updated version.

Avicii x Coldplay x Matthew Koma x Krewella – Teardrops (Troika Mashup)

I’m not usually a big advocate of mash-ups with more than a couple songs being mashed together but this compilation from Troika really turned out well.  I’ve really been on and off with house music lately but with something like this I’m reminded of why I first started enjoying it all those years ago.  Troika’s got some other good mixes I figured I’d throw in too.  Check ‘em out and be sure to like/follow his pages below to stay up to date with all his latest productions.

Frank Ocean – Pink Matter Remix feat. Big Boi & Andre 3000

     Yes, this is Big Boi and Andre 3000 on a track together, no this is not an Outkast reunion.  The two are also featuring on T.I.‘s upcoming “Sorry” but have made clear they are not back together and it really just sort of happened this way.  One can only hope right?  Either way, I’m happy they’re both featured together in this.  Definitely one for the iTunes library.

Mausi – Move

     Super catchy one from a group of artists who are new to me, in Mausi.  Mausi are a group of 4, two of which happen to be brother and sister from Milan, and the other two from England.  This is the first I’ve heard of them but I have to say after checking out some of their other stuff they’ve certainly got a new fan in me.  I’ve always loved a nice up-beat catchy song and this one certainly fits the bill.  Be sure to show them some love via the links below to stay up to date with their upcoming releases, including this one which is due out later this month.
