“Slave To The Rhythm (Audien Remix)” by Michael Jackson

slave to the rhythm pumpthebeat.com audien michael jackson

Audien takes a stab at remixing the King of Pop. Although the life of Michael Jackson may be over, his music keeps carrying on. That’s what I love about music and its power to keep impacting peoples’ lives.

Audien is also aiding in this process by adding his own twist to “Slave To The Rhythm.” Originally a pop track, Audien converts the pop feel towards more of a progressive house feel. Instead of his usual chord synths that give tracks an anthemic feel, he uses synths in a staccato formation. For me, this style makes the synths pop out.

If you want to listne to the track, I’ve embedded the full video player with the song after the jump.

“Flicker” by Porter Robinson

Porter Robinson - Flicker - PumpTheBeat.com

Porter continues to keep us on our toes with “Flicker”, the last of four official releases from his upcoming project WORLDS (Aug. 12th). If you dug the last few tracks he has put out, you will not be disappointed. If you have been craving some funky guitar with a creative electro body, you will not be disappointed. If you hate choppy Japanese vocals, you will, however, be quite disappointed. Sorry.

“Gold Skies (Elephante Remix)” by Sander Van Doorn, Martin Garrix, DVBBS

An already energetic, progressive house track gets a whole new makeover. Didn’t really think that adding more excitement and energy to the original track was possible, but somehow, our friend Elephante did it.

Like we’ve been saying for a while now, Elephante is an artist to watch. He adds a melody that honestly always manages to sound epic. Plus, Elephante’s synth selection never disappoints either. So, what could get better than an epic release? A free download, of course!

Before, you grab the download. Read what Elephante had to say about this remix on his SoundCloud:

So I really love the original, but something in my brain makes me imagine robot noises over everything I listen to. The vocal on this is so beautiful, so ethereal, and all I can think is GLITCH IT UP. Really happy with how this one came out though, it makes me feel like I’m cliff diving off into the glassy Mediterranean waters, and then like partying with robot dolphins and sea horses and shit. Yeah I don’t know either

“Core (Kayzo Remix)” by RL Grime

RL Grime KAYZO CORE- Pump the Beat

Houston native KAYZO known for his uncanny ability of mixing genres hit us with a new jaw dropping bass remix of RL GRIME’s CORE. He keeps the original intro but replaces the drop with a whole spectacle of heavy hitting BASS. KAYZO also has been nice enough to offer the song as a free download on his soundcloud which is pretty sweet. Expect to hear this monster of a bass tune at your next show or festival!

“Drinking About You (The Chainsmokers Remix)” by Bebe Rexha

chainsmokers-ptb.com

There is a lot to say about The Chainsmokers. Most people probably first heard some of their awesome remixes like “Dreaming” and “Medicine” and did not even know who they were. Then, out of nowhere, “Selfie” sweeps across the nation. The song was MONSTROUS! Everywhere you went, you heard “Let Me Take A Selfie.” The remixes and parodies were all funny and great but now it is time for The Chainsmokers to do what they do best and release some music.

The duo is best at implementing chill vocals and adding relaxing house drops equating to perfect partying and #DrinkingMusic. This remix brings them back to their original sounds and it is on point. I am looking forward to their new track called “KanYe” releasing August 5, 2014. The Facebook preview sounds like it could be a banger! I’m glad these guys keep releasing new music and can’t wait to hear more.

“Arrows” by Fences ft. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

A lot of people who listen to rap tell me they don’t like Macklemore. For me, it is hard to say I do not like Macklemore because his video “Otherside” is one of the top music videos I have ever seen. If you have not seen it, watch it below and I bet your opinion about Macklemore will change. Besides that, you cannot deny that Macklemore puts his heart and soul into all of his songs. He shares his beliefs and does his own thing on every track and you have to respect that.

Fences kills the vocals on this “Arrows” track and Macklemore spits a fast verse for the feature. I mentioned “Otherside” also because Fences does wonders on the hook. There is a Red Hot Chili Peppers remix that is dope too. “Arrows” is a great track. Check it out above and check out Macklemore, Ryan Lewis, and Fences in the intense music video below!

Album: “Banco” by Sir Michael Rocks

Banco by Sir Michael Rocks - pumpthebeat.com

Sir Michael Rocks jumped into the spotlight with his first single “MEMO” with this new album Banco. After that, looks like things come easy. He landed a bunch of good features and so far, this album is exceeding hip hop’s expectations of the young talent. Half of the hip hop duo, The Cool Kids, Rocks follows a similar style throughout the whole album.

Don’t expect any huge switch ups but it’s for sure worth the listen. “Bussin’” bangs with Casey Veggies killing his verse. “Ain’t Nothing Like” is produced by DJ Mustard and lives up to the hype. The album supports an illusionistic sound as you can see by the cover and some of the songs really test your lyrically-mental patience (“Playstation 1.5″).

Support the kid, cuz you never know when he could be the next. PND I got you…
