Since there are no rules about posting two remixes of the same song back to back, here’s what I’ll classify as the current must have version of Daft Punk‘s “Lose Yourself To Dance” from Barcelona disconaut SIMØNE. You already know things are about to get real funky from the moment the song begins to fade in, but when that bassline starts slapping at the 31 second mark…well, let’s just say you should download this one.
Introducing yet another exciting Australian talent, Hayden James, who’s just released his debut single, “Permission To Love,” on Sydney’s esteemed Future Classic label.
DJ Topsider has another gem on his hands with “Washed Ashore,” a vibey new mashup that combines A$AP Rocky‘s “LVL” with Purity Ring‘s “Grandloves” and Cosmo’s Midnight‘s “Won’t You Stay.” The three songs harmonize together like they were meant to be, crashing calmly through your speakers just like the waves portrayed on the cover art. Listen below and grab a free download.

Kanye West’s impromptu listening party Monday night (a week out from the release of Yeezus) revealed tons of new information about the album. Speaking to a crowd that included Jay-Z, Beyonce, Q-Tip, Timbaland, and a host of models, journalists and fans, Kanye hit on the album’s concept, direction, title, promotional strategy, collaborators and producers. Here’s what we learned:
Despite rumors that the album was still unfinished, Kanye West held a Yeezus listening party at Milk Studios in New York last night. Apart from streaming the entire album for the surrounding neighborhood to hear, Kanye also confirmed that the mighty Daft Punk collaborated on “3 or 4″ Yeezus tracks, specifically naming “Onsite” (the album’s first track), “I Am a God,” and “Black Skinhead,” (all three of which can be previewed in the live footage from Governors Ball).
In the video from the event below (via MissInfo), you can hear West explain new Yeezus details, with the Daft Punk portion specifically starting at 1:30.
