Release after release, we’ve had the pleasure of reveling in the incredibly flavorful sounds of Canada’s emerging producer, Flavours. Harboring a sound that is hard to formulate into a verbal description, Flavours’s musical style brings a whole new listening experience to electronic music consumers. In his latest musical creation, Flavours tackles Adina Howard’s ‘Freak Like Me’ and flips it into a galvanizing mid-tempo groove, vibrating eardrums with bouncy percussion, seductive vocal clips, atmospheric sounds, and an overflowing dose of funk-laden passages. As always, Flavours has tossed up this release for free, and if it leaves you craving more, be sure to snag up his ‘Juice EP‘ if you missed it.

Need a little excitement in your life? I’ve got you covered on that front. If you aren’t familiar yet, let me introduce you to MitiS. Trained as a classical pianist, this Philadelphia producer/DJ is one of those rare talents that creates his own mold and sticks to his creative guns. Producing in genres ranging from dubstep, drumstep, drum & bass, trance, and electro-house, MitiS has a sound to fit just about anyone’s tastes. Basically, if Seven Lions, Subfocus, and Mat Zo miraculously had a baby together, that baby would be named MitiS. Since I first heard his Change Will Come mix a while back, I‘ve always been pleased with what hear coming from this guy, and this new mix for his upcoming Touch Tour is no exception. Epic, blissful, and dripping with musicality, this mix, which is packed with original tracks and a variety of genres, is definitely worth the download. Turn it up and enjoy!

Branchez picks up the pace of the original while preserving the gripping, passion filled undertone of the original vocals to create a moving and uplifting rendition.

Earlier in the year we had the pleasure of highlighting some recent productions from one of Norway’s emerging electronic artists, Bearson. Our interest was peaked upon hearing his remix of Franki Love’s ‘Make Love‘ original, and he has since kept us eagerly waiting for subsequent releases. Bearson has made another appearance, bringing us another emotive and stimulating electronic remix, this time of SOHN’s ‘Lessons’. The remix is up for grabs and if you’re in search of soothing, melodic electronic production with enlightening vocals, this remix is offering you just that and more.

The Bust Free 15 compilation mixes some slow jazzy tracks with several electronic vibes. None of them are lacking in a strong melody and there is a fair amount of attitude to be found here as well. An infusion of hip hop tracks ensures that there is something for everyone. We love to see great lesser known producers like Es-K getting some love and this collection has plenty of those to offer. The bottom line is that if you’re looking for a big collection of high quality tracks you might have missed at release, Cold busted has got you covered.

I have to be honest: I’m not the biggest trap fan in the world. So if a couple of trap songs get my toes tapping enough to want to share them, I think that says something to their credit. Here are a couple of great tracks from Colorado-based beat-crafting duo, BearsOhMy. Comprised of John ‘Be Good’ Mabie and Ryan ‘WeiszGuy’ Weisz, BearsOhMy has definitely surpassed what I have come to expect from a typical trap song. While a lot of other trap songs can sound a bit formulaic, “Collapse” is anything but average. Injected with a healthy dose of bass and a wicked fun, party-ready vibe, this one is sure to burn up dancefloors and house parties left and right. If you’re looking for something a bit more laidback and hip-hoppy (but still full of hard-hitting bass) be sure to check out their remix of “Goldie” by A$AP Rocky. But be careful if you play these around your girlfriend because she may just start twerking in public. Turn these puppies up and enjoy the free downloads!
