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...

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.

Bondax – Gold

Bondax has featured numerous times on OHD and I’m just gonna say it, they are officially my favorite breakout artists of 2012.  I’m still yet to hear a song I don’t like and the same runs true with this one.  “Gold” is the latest single from the UK pairing and it’s hard to say because all their stuff is so good, but as of right now this may be my new favorite of theirs.

Easy (Original Mix) – Porter Robin...

For some reason, at first I was hesitant to post this track, but it has since grown on me and I enjoy its feel good vibes and anthemic house influences that Mat Zo brings to the track. It’s the perfect blend of electro dub and house into a happy medium. This is a staple track for all your libraries, enjoy!

187 – Tyga

Tyga has created lots of successful tracks in his years.  Enough to get him signed with big names like the Young Money crew (YMCMB).  Tyga has a very original sound and I’ve been a long time fan of his.  His new mixtape 187 shows his progression as an artist and gives us a taste of a harder, more gangster side.  Turn your speakers up.

Unicorn Kid / Kate Boy / Memory Plates +...

I’ve been MIA for a few weeks now but I am finally back, I know you missed me.  There has been so much amazing music coming out of the most unexpected places these past few weeks and I aim to start getting everyone caught up on what you may have missed in my absence.  To start I guess I’ll just lay down a few songs that have caught my ear this past week or so.  Of these nine different tracks, one of the artists who has really caught my ear is the electro-pop group Kate Boy.  Resemblances to The Knife in their sound is very apparent, and I have to say I am quite down.  I also figured I’d throw in the new Unicorn Kid.  It’s only a radio rip but it is definitely one to have until the full version is released.  Besides this Memory Tapes remix I cannot get enough of at the moment, the rest are just a random collection of songs from fairly unknown artists that I felt were worthy of some attention.  I am officially back so keep your ears peeled for another volume of the Chill Mix and all the other usual stuff.
