A$AP Rocky f/ Bun B, Paul Wall, Killa Kyleon - "Purple Swag" (H-Town All Stars Remix)

"Purple Swag" won't make it onto A$AP Rocky's major label debut Long.Live.A$AP, but alongside his NYC breakthrough hit "Peso," it remains one of Pretty Flacko's most important tracks, for two reasons... Read more


Sway - "Charge (SuperCharge Pt 1)" f/ Lunar C, Stig of the Dump, Shotty Horroh, Rizzle, Black The Ripper & Jehst

Sway remixes his recent, dance-infused single "Charge", with the help of some of the UK's best known battle-rap talents.Read more


S.A.S. f/ Vinny Cha$e x Curt@!n$ - "Suave Life (Luxury Rap Remix)" | New Music

For the first track from their upcoming tape Coming To America II, British rap duo S.A.S. recruit suave state-side talents Vinny Cha$e and Curt@!n$ for the "Suave Life (Luxury Rap Remix)".

All four rappers play their part well. V.Chase slides through the opening verse in typically swagged out style, shifting from luxury car to hotel seamlessly, before Mega and Mayhem add that extra impact with their addictive hook. Curt@!n$, whose sartorial excellence qualifies him well for this one, drops an aggressive, turnt-up verse, then the Brits come back and close the track with some new bars.

If the original (which you can find on their Narnia tape) was a triumph, this is an excellent fusion of U.S and U.K voices:


Rihanna x ΜIC ΤΗΞ DΓUΜϟ - "Diamond City" (Remix) | New Music

Rihanna's Unapologetic album is out now [read our review here] and the remix machine that comes with all major releases nowadays is already swinging into operation. Here Mic The Drums takes lead single "Diamonds" and creates what he calls a "little bit of mash up, little bit of ratchet.. all BANGER" by interpolating parts of M83's "Midnight City" (which you might have heard on Made In Chelsea) and Snoop's classic Pharrell collaboration "Drop It Like It's Hot" into Rihanna's track.

Lana Del Rey - "Ride" (UNKLE Remix) | New Music

From Joy Orbison's remix of "Video Games" to Afterlife's take on "National Anthem," Lana Del Rey's music has proven to be a popular body of work for electronic artists to revisit. This time it's trip hop duo UNKLE's turn to take on LDR, joining MJ Cole and Photek as producers who have chosen to remix "Ride", the Rick Rubin crafted ballad from Born To Die: The Paradise Edition.

Kendrick Lamar x Star Slinger - "Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe (Re-fix)" | New Music

Kendrick Lamar's "Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe", one of the best moments on good kid, m.A.A.d city,  is a track that probably never needs to be remixed.Read more


Jessie Ware - "Running" (Disclosure Remix - VIP Edit) | New Music

Having dropped a great EP and having blown up on clubs and on the radio, South London production duo Disclosure will be able to look back on 2012 with a smile.
A track that's been instrumental in their rise is of course their remix of Jessie Ware's "Running", a bright and glossy affair which got major attention on Radio One, and still appears with regularity on Party Playlists across the country. Just to mix things up a little bit, the brothers dropped in at the Boiler Room on Tuesday (13th) and unleashed a special edit of the track as part of their b2b "Do Not Disturb" set with Skream.

On a first listen, the new update seems to be just as fun but a little rougher than the original. The production snaps and pops to a 2-step beat, until the real monster uncoils itself- a wicked synth-hook which will probably stay in your (and my) head for the rest of the day. Have a listen to a rip below, and let us know which version you prefer in the C-section.

Juicy J f/ French Montana, Lola Monroe, Wiz Khalifa & B.o.B - "Bandz A Make Her Dance (Remix)"

"Bandz A Make Her Dance", a track which started with just two of the South's finest talents, Juicy J and producer Mike Will Made It, recently become the U.S. No.1 with the help of feature kings 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne. Still, the remixes keep coming. For this new line-up Juicy is joined by his frequent Taylor Gang collaborator Wiz, the increasingly ubiquitous French Montana, the resurgent B.o.B and Taylor Gang's model turned rapper Lola Monroe.
 
It's all pretty forgettable stuff, with French and Wiz beginning to sound like clones of themselves and Wayne's wit sorely missed, but B.o.B drops a good verse, Lola tells the story from the stripper's perspective and Mike Will's blaring strip-club beat remains the star of the show.

Little Dragon - "Sunshine (Shlohmo Remix)" | New Music

Shlohmo and Little Dragon is a musical collaboration that makes a lot of sense. The L.A. production wunderkid excels at melting down RnB rhythms and vocals, whilst Little Dragon have a voice and sound well-suited to his dark, uber-slow remixes.Read more


Ed Sheeran f/ Mic Righteous - "Give Me Love" (New Machine Remix) | New Music

East London based production duo Craig Merrin and Adam Jordan, also known as New Machine, add their spin to Ed Sheeran's latest single "Give Me Love," bringing along UK emcee Mic Righteous for the ride. Read more


Nas f/ Ginuwine - "You Owe Me" (Sango Edit) | New Music

Seattle-based producer Sango has always been in his element adding percussive elements and extra atmosphere to innovative RnB cuts, and this is no exception. Having released an EP filled with The Weeknd remixes, as well as one-off remixes of Aaliyah, the xx, Frank Ocean, Drake and Little Dragon, the post-dubstep artist (pardon the genre jargon) has now decided to take on an RnB-influenced gem from Nas' flawed '99 album Nastradamus.Read more


Tinashe - "BOSS (The 83rd Remix)" | New Music

When Brooklyn remix fiend The 83rd surprised us with a stuttering, pitched-down mash-up of Jamie xx, Gil Scott-Heron's vocals and Angel Haze's "New York" (originally their own production), he left us desperate for more.Read more


MJ Cole remixes Lana Del Rey's "Ride" | New Music

Mercury Music Prize nominated London producer MJ Cole adds a touch of his finesse to Lana Del Rey's Paradise bonus track "Ride." The number which features on the repackaged release of Del Rey's Born To Die album debut, surprisingly matches Lana's resounding vocals to a slightly off-kilter dance-like soft tremor of an instrumental.

Voli vs. Gotye - "State Of The Art" | Music Video

It's been some time since his last release but New Jersey's ever grafting lyricist Voli returns to bless the world wide web with new visuals for his new cut "State Of The Art."

Arguably his most creative/eclectic release to date, Voli takes the original workings of chart topper Gotye to produce a blinding (epileptic sensitive) light show of a video which mixes animated monster pianos, '50s archive film footage and silhouettes to create a head tripping experience, exploring the evolution of music and its downfalls.

TelepopMusik - "Don't Look Back (Gianni Lee Remix)" | New Music

Following several releases over the summer, including his Trillectro Warm-Up mix and Trillwave Tres Mixtape, DJ/Producer Gianni Lee lends his hand to a pretty cool remix of French electronic duo TelepopMusik's "Don't Look Back." Read more


Little Dragon - "Sunshine" (Star Slinger Remix) | Music Video

A few months ago Swedish Electro-soul outfit Little Dragon linked up with vodka brand ABSOLUT to bring us the very dope "Sunshine".Read more
