Hoodie Allen Mixtape- Leap Year

Hoodie Allen just released his new brand new mixtape, Leap Year. Pretty much every song on it is amazing. My personal favorites are The Chase is On, You're Welcome, Sticks and Stones, and Every Time You Go. Hoodie says about his mixtape:
I began writing Leap Year when I decided to leave my job at Google and follow my passion. The thirteen track album is a look into my world and what it means to step out of my comfort zone. I wanted Leap Year to mirror my life and experiences--it’s fun, crazy, sarcastic, and introspective-- its me growing up on record.

Bombay Bicycle Club- Shuffle Music Video

"Shuffle" by Bombay Bicycle Club is a great summer tune, and the British band just came out with the music video for it. They all look like they are having such a good time in the video.

Anyway check out their video above.

Mumford & Sons- Little Lion Man Remix

I'm a huge Mumford & Sons fan, and I am constantly searching for any new material from them, or any remixes of their songs. Here's a great remix Hot Young Girls did of "Little Lion Man" by Mumford & Sons. I wouldn't say that it's a full out dubstep, it's more slower than typical dubstep songs. Anyway check it out below.

Here's a great remix Diplo did of "Motivation" by Kelly Rowland featuring Lil Wayne. As always, Diplo makes the song even better than the original.

Pretty Lights- Country Roads

Here's a track Pretty Lights aka Derek Vincent Smith came out with specially for his show in West Virginia. I don't really like country music at all, but the way Pretty Lights blends this song from country singer John Denver with electro is an awesome twist.

Dubby Mixtape- Stand By Me

Cincinnati rapper Dubby dropped a mixtape that features some pretty awesome tracks. I love almost every song on his mixtape! My favorite part about the tape is that many of the songs mix slow beats with meaningful lyrics to create great chill out tunes. My personal favorite is So What Check it out below:


Fossil Collective- Without a Fight Dark Dark Horse Remix

I had never heard about Fossil Collective until they started to follow me on twitter. What caught my eye was that they say they are a mixture between Fleet Foxes, Midlake, and Bon Iver. I immediately went over to their website and downloaded their free song, "Without a Fight Dark Dark Horse Remix." I love the how mellow and relaxing it is. Check it out below.

Avicii- Fade Into Darkness

Most of you have probably heard Avicii's song "ID," and might have thought "Hey, this would be great if it had words!"(Or maybe it was just me) Well your wish has been answered. Avicii's new song, "Fade into Darkness" basically just added lyrics to "ID," making it even better (in my opinion). Anyway, check out the song below.

New Hood Internet

If any of you have heard the song #STUPIDFACEDD by Wallpaper., (That's not a typo) then you know how ridiculously strange, yet weirdly catchy it is. Well, the Hood Internet did a remix to it.

Here's the music video for Foster the People's new single "Helena Beat." Foster the People rose to fame pretty slowly, but they finally are starting to get the recognition they deserve. The band has described the video as "Lord of the Flies meets Mad Max." While the band still hasn't quite reached full on stardom, you can tell by this big budget music video that they are getting up there.

Diplo Mavado Remix

Here's a Diplo remix of the song "Delilah" by Mavado. The song is a great update on the original. It has a cool islandy-electro feel to it. I'm not that familiar with Mavado, and I'm not normally a reggae fan, but I like this remix.

Mavado - Delilah (Diplo Remix) by diplomaddecent

Xaphoon Jones- Believe Me

Xaphoon Jones teamed up with AC Slater to create "Believe Me." It's a great dubstep banger that's mostly all instrumental, but great nonetheless.

Mic Mang's New Mixtape- Been There Heard That

Mic Mang dropped his sophomore mixtape, Been There Heard That, this month. My favorite songs are Pull An All Nighter and Hello World, which samples Someone Like you by Adele. It is refreshing to hear another one of Adele's song remixed besides Rolling In Deep. This mixtape shows how Mang's lyrics are maturing and only getting better!

Check it out below!

Starky Hendrix Mixtape

Here's a great mixtape from Gabriel Stark. Every song has a laid back, summer feel to it that is perfect to listen to when you just want to relax. My favorite song would probably be "Random Song That Doesn't Fit," which is a remix of the Jason Mraz song "I'm Yours." You all should definitely download the entire mixtape, because all of the songs are awesome.

Hailing from Pittsburgh, The 58's are comprised of of PGH spitters Franchise, B. White, Vinny Radio, Ghosty, Mayo, and Primavera Vills. I'm up right now listening to their mixtape and I have to say I'm really feeling it. The 58's have an old school hip hop feel, which is my favorite style of hip hop. Not sure if this post is long over due..sorry! I like the hard lyrics coupled with the instrumentals on many of the tracks...have a listen.
