Real Magic – Dancing On My Own (Robyn Cover)

Denver native “Real Magic” (Drew Englander) recreates a classic in this chill-wave cover. While the musical alterations are subtle, Englander’s version adds an exciting freshness to Robyn’s anthem of solitude and longing.

Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz – Get Low (Andrew Luce Remix) 

Twelve years after its original release, sixteen-year-old Andrew Luce shows us what this track would sound like had it come out today. He adds heavy trap beats and throbbing base for an updated version of the timeless hit. While you’re at it, check out his similar spin on 50 Cent’s Candy Shop.

Echos – Ghosts

Fresh on the map, indie duo “Echos” promises to be the next big thing in electronic music after quickly gaining widespread acclaim on the blogosphere. Haunting vocals linger over ethereal bass, quickly developing into an epic outpour of synths and hard-hitting percussion.

Jesse Slayter – Thick  

This club-pleaser encompasses all of the usual: meaty bass, an infectious beat, meaningless vocal samples, and all the right builds, drops and chops.

Chet Faker – Gold

After three years of releasing music, Chet Faker’s debut album has come after much patient anticipation. After his cover of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” was featured in a 2013 Super Bowl commercial for Beck’s Sapphire, music lovers worldwide became acquainted with the Australian singer’s cool, down-tempo style.
