A testament to the taste of JeromeLOL, as “Paranoid” starts receiving heavy mainstream attention, and before any other artist puts their spin on the track, Jerome already has a club ready edit suitable for any situation. Hip-hop infused with a four on the floor beat accents these pop hooks with a slower house feel clocking in at 110 bpm. The perfect blend of rap and house music, don’t forget to cop the free download.

DJ Snake has been on a remixing tear lately, taking on Duck Sauce, AlunaGeorge, and as of this morning, Major Lazer. The Parisian producer has a very distinct style of bass, using elements of Hip Hop beats with bleepy Electronic leads, and Snake’s remix of Major Lazer’s “Bubble Butt” available for stream today is a prime example. “Coming soon” reads in the description on Soundcloud, so maybe we’ll be seeing an official “Bubble Butt” EP out soon?

Our LA friend Marvel The GR8 just finished a visually killer music video and we’re giving you the exclusive premiere to his new single ‘Mollywood’, directed by Adam Leao (co-creator of the 12th Planet docmentary SMOG CITY). Cut-up like a bad reception, staggered channel, out of focus video reel, the young gun Marvel The GR8 takes us a trippy flow that gives off a Yeezus-meets-Danny Brown vibe. Scope it…
