Weekly New Music Recap

Since everyone is busy with work/internships/classes and may not be able to constantly check up on new music releases, here is a recap of some of the hottest new tracks to come out this past week!

“Goosebumps” – Mac Miller

Mac returns to his classic mixtape self and brings his classic flow over a CRAZY beat produced by none other than Diplo. This song can be found on Mac’s upcoming Watching Movies with the Sound Off, which is due out on June 18.

“Tessellate” -Ellie Goulding

Miss Goulding how we have missed you. The British goddess takes on Alt-J’s “Tessellate” and completely makes the song her own. I can promise that most people wouldn’t even know that this song was a cover. It’s very reminiscent of her cover of The Weekend’s “High For This.”

“The First Bass is the Deepest (Dada Life Edit)” – Anybody

Anybody, the artist that previously remixed Dada Life’s “So Young, So High”, puts out his first single on Dada Life’s label and gets a little assist from the bosses. The songs sounds very much like it has a lot of Dada Life influence, but I can also hear a slight hint of Tiesto in there as well.

“Niggaz Know” – J. Cole

Simply put, this is the lyrical genius at his finest. J. Cole has a way of putting flows together that is completely unique and still blows my mind sometimes. Look for this on Born Sinner, due out June 18.

“F**kin Problems (Crizzly Remix)” – A$AP Rocky featuring 2 Chainz, Drake, & Kendrick Lamar

Crizzly brings absolute fire to already one of the hottest tracks of the past year. I personally heard him play this remix during his set at EDC New York and I can tell you that the crowd went completely INSANE when he dropped this. Put this song on anywhere and you’re bound to get a similar reaction.

“Alive (Acoustic Version)” – Krewella

Already featured on our site, this song just needs some more recognition. AMAZING. That’s all that can be said about this rendition of “Alive” and about Krewella in general.
