Our buds over at Dim Mak just hit 100k on Twitter and to show their appreciation they gave away one hell of a heater, grab it below!
“O.A.K.L.A.N.D.” is nod to Dim Mak newcomer Panic City‘s birthplace and home of the Hyphy movement. Having grown up with the influence of iconic Bay area artists like E-40, Keak Da Sneak, and Too Short, the sounds blazed their way into Panic City’s future hyphy productions. “O.A.K.L.A.N.D.” bridges the gap between the gritty, pounding rhythms of his roots and Panic’s penchant for piano driven classic house melodies and unpredictable drops.
Coming strong out of Philidelphia, Louis Futon has had quite an eventful 2015 only a couple months in. Having already released two official remixes that were both very special in their own ways taking on both Just A Gent’s “Limelight”, and ODESZA’s “Say My Name”, both receive kngs but that wasn’t it. He is also still riding the buzz of his very successful self-titled Louis Futon EP that was given away as a free download. It has collected over 2 million collective plays on his soundcloud upload of it alone and has already amassed over 40,000 free downloads through his website, and these landmarks have been achieved in just under 1 month.
His next target to remix is rapper G-Eazy who’s coming off a #1 debut studio album which is close to breaking 200k copies sold already. He’s been officially enlisted to remix his song “Lets Get Lost (Ft. Devon Baldwin)”, where Louis completely reimagines the song. Louis pushes the boundaries blending hip-hop and his signature electronic style for a combination you will be moving to. He highlights G-Eazy rapping and the smooth vocals of artist Devon Baldwin who’s been growing into her own buzzing artist to be on the look for. With all these artists on the same track, the result is unbeatable. The artists have graciously passed this out as a free download as well.
Riding the acclaimed release of his new original ‘Chest’, Chris Lake keeps the reign of house rolling in 2015 with an explosive edit of Mark Ronson’s hit “Uptown Funk”. Lake keeps the soulfulness of the single, letting Bruno Mars energetic vocals bounce along fat percussion and a bubbling synth lead. The product is a dynamic club weapon fit to throw the dance floor into a frenzy!
Ah, major label obligations… oft at the helm of a musician’s frustration. But leave it to a man like Jesse Rose to channel his frustrations, whatever they may be, into something productive. Here we have “Play That” a brand new tune which the Brit-turned-LA resident has managed to turn over and release in under 24 hours. Says Jesse of the tune:
Yesterday at around 2pm I was getting so frustrated that I haven’t released a track in such a long time because of a major label deal being negotiated, that I thought “Fuck it, I’m going to the studio and making a track today just for my fans and then upload it in the morning.” I gotta say…. it was a lot of fun to do.
You can listen to and download the track on Soundcloud below, and be sure to follow him on Twitter and Instagram for any other cool stuff he might want to give away…

To kick off 2015, Wax Motif gives up a new original called ‘Since I Left You.’ This one takes us into disco/electro overdrive with a big synth lead, a fat kick and the melodic aid of a classic Brandy vocal. Fans of Alex Metric, Oliver and Grum will be all over this one, and it comes with an interesting back story from the Wax-man himself:
“So this is a track I did almost over a year ago now. It was during a really difficult time for me as I was new in America and my ex and I had just split up. I was just crashing out on people couches or guestrooms, whoever would have me, while I tried to figure out if I was gonna even keep going with music. It was a Friday night and I really didn’t feel like going out and my friend who I was crashing with had a studio so I sparked one up and this is where ‘Since I Left You’ was born.”
