The Melt, a music collective and club night based out of Los Angeles, has put together their first ever album: The Melt Compilation Vol. 1.
Its 19 tracks span across all sorts of sounds within electronic music, from hip hop to garage to trap to house to every future-bass sub-genre in between. The common theme though, as you might expect from a name like The Melt, is the tranquilizing, almost lulling aura that just oozes out of each one of these instrumentals. You’ll know what I’m talking about right from the start with Deebs’ “Alibi” and C.Z.’s “Lovin Your Smile,” but if that’s not enough I’d suggest skipping down to my favorite track, Agendas’ “Swimming,” to really get hooked.
Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience has made its way online shortly after the album went up for stream in iTunes, and thanks to the dudes over at FistInTheAir, you can give the tracked out version a spin below. Whether you Google for the download link or buy it on iTunes (the album is out March 19th), I’d recommend throwing “Don’t Hold The Wall” on infinite repeat (“Tunnel Vision” and “Spaceship Coupe” are also great options).
Well? How do you like it? You shouldn’t have to ask me that question.
That’s right, Dillon Francis has provided an official remix of Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie.” Initial reaction of the distorted trap rework will likely be a little mixed, but if you’re like me, you’ll start to love it more with each consecutive play. Here’s what Francis had to say for it:
YUUPPP got to do an OFFICIAL remix for JT’s song Suit & Tie!!!! im sooooo fucking happy about the outcome of my remix!!! So here is the stream!! RELEASE DATE IS STILL TBA and dont start yelling at me because Jay-Z vox aren’t in the remix because the Sony said that i wasnt allowed to…..anyways ENJOY
What do you think?

A few months ago (obviously not realizing he was sitting on gold), Russ Chimes nonchalantly described “Turn Me Out” as “a track I just made for DJ sets that ended up being on the radio.” After finally liberating the full version today, it’s clear the man has a hit on his hands. Addictive, intoxicating, and fully weekend-ready, “Turn Me Out” is exactly the breath of fresh house music air you’ve been waiting for.
For the 100th release on his own Boysnoize label, Boys Noize has snagged none other than Justice and The Chemical Brothers for remixes of his robotic Out Of The Black cut, “Ich R U.” The Justice mix takes the track down a nail biting, and at times, downright spooky path, churning it’s way to a mysteriously apocalyptic finale. Listen below and find it, along with The Chemical Brothers remix, out March 18th.

D-WHY has set free a couple of tracks from his vault, “A God Amongst Men” and “The Rave,” in hopes of calming the nerves of followers anxiously awaiting a Don’t Flatter Yourself follow-up:
I recorded “A God Amongst Men” in late 2010 (it’s over the beat to Kanye West’s “Devil in a New Dress”) and “The Rave” in mid-2011 (it’s my take on Mumford and Sons’ “The Cave”). They aren’t ‘new,’ but they’ve withstood the test of time and I wanted you all to have them. I hope you enjoy them as much as I still do.
Fans of Morris’ raw rapper persona will fall into the favor of “A God Amongst Men,” a track that I would argue is one of his best ever and the one of these two that warranted my “must hear” tag. As for fans of the slightly more indie-rock D-WHY, you’ll love his folk meets hip-hop Mumford & Sons impression in “The Rave.” Listen to and download both together below.
