“Twice (Tusks Live Midnight Cover)” by Little Dragon

Tusks-PumpTheBeat.com

I never thought any artist would be able to come close to matching Little Dragon’s version of “Twice,” a haunting ballad of loss (what else), but Tusks does do the track complete justice. It’s a softer, less croony sound than the original, but it works nonetheless, doubtless because of the gorgeous, entrancing piano chords that play throughout. I think I still prefer the original, but I definitely didn’t mind this coming across my path today. Tusks undoubtedly has beautiful vocals, and the lyrics to the song give me a great case of the feels every time I hear them uttered. Absolutely worth a listen if you’re craving something a little deeper, calmer.

Video: “Wake Me Up” by Aloe Blacc (Acoustic)

Remember when all those people flipped out and didn’t like this at Ultra? Fuck is matter with you people. This was one of the biggest tracks played at TomorrowWorld. The acoustic version is pretty awesome as well. Aloe Blacc just came out with a new EP that you can check out on iTunes that contains the acoustic version and some other tracks, one produced by Pharrell. I know all yall like Pharrell.

Video: “Alive (Acoustic Version)” by Krewella

Krewella dropped an acoustic version today for their their hit track “Alive” that has blown up all across the United States over the past few months. This live acoustic version features vocals as usual from the beautiful Jahan and Yasmine, along with Rain Man killing it on guitar. Ultra Music Festival in March served as an official coming out party for Krewella and since then have been one of the hottest talents in the EDM industry. They are currently in the process of collaborating with a wide variety of artists including Nicky Romero, Carnage and Headhunterz to name a few from the extensive list of artists who are dying to work with the KREW. On a big note this weekend Krewella plays Light Nightclub at the Mandalay Bay, which is expected to be one crazy night fueled by the combination of Cirque Du Solei and some Sin City madness!! With only a few festival stops scheduled for this summer allowing for more time in the studio, Krewella will be cranking out new music all in preparation for a massive album release and a fall US Tour.

Video: “Save The World/Don’t You Worry Child” by Pentatonix

This is a crazy good cover of two great Swedish House Mafia tracks. The entire cover consists of 5 people using their voices to create the track. They do an amazing job on this one.

Video: “Clarity (Acoustic Version)” by ZEDD ft. Foxes

This song has literally been on my top 10 songs to play, since the album, “Clarity,” came out. The original version is amazing and so are the lyrics. Personally, I love it when the artist releases alternate versions of the song, just to change it up a bit. ZEDD, being classically trained in piano, shows the EDM world that he’s not just a producer who can make catchy tunes. He’s more than that. Huge props to ZEDD for being a badass. This song is amazing.
