PREMIERE: Exmag & BRANX – Laboratory

NY trio Exmag (pictured above, top) teams up with fellow Brooklynite BRANX (bottom) for an eight-track EP dubbed Plants And Animals, and LessThan3 has the exclusive first listen of the particularly smooth lead-off groove, Laboratory.

Sexy as hell and twice as cavernous, Laboratory slides to and fro on slick synth work behind walls of sound accented with an agile, guitar-esque pluck lead and some seriously soothing nature sounds to boot. Here's hoping the rest of the EP is equally delicious.

Exmag, short for "extraordinary magnitude," comprises Eric Mendelson, Mike Iannatto, Tyler Dondero (aka SuperNicer), and the trio is known for their blends of classic sounds from rock and hip hop to R&B and soul, however modernized with a contemporary approach easily capable of catapulting them to the forefront of the beats scene.

Check out their previous reveal from the release, MVP, here, and pick up the complete EP April 1 when it becomes available on SoundCloud.

Elephante Stomps On Jack U & Bieber’s ‘Where Are U Now’

Michigan's mighty Elephante is back with more of his aptly described "anthem house" in a remix of Jack U and Justin Bieber's collaborative Where Are U Now, made available today as a free download.

Elephante takes a hint from the track's originally smooth, R&B nature and keeps his own take tethered a bit closer when compared with his boom-heavy remix catalog. The resulting big room-progressive work has elements of modern house between its synth-soaked builds and drops, making for a fun-loving medley of energetic dance music topped with Biebs' vocals modulated up to a fever pitch--a Bieber fever pitch, if you will.

Pick up your free download here.

Tchami Creates A ‘Timeless’ Remix

Following a trip to the After Life with his first original production in almost a year, Parisian producer Tchami (pictured above) returns with a brand-new remix of indie singer Caroline Koch's single Timeless.

Funky, breezy, and energetic, Tchami's latest is a bouncy, 90s-style rework. Featuring stabbing synths and a stomping bassline, this track will certainly demand frequent rinsing in peak-hour scenarios.

Pre-order Caroline Koch's Timeless remix EP ahead of its April 13 release date here and instantly grab Tchami's remix.

Trap Tuesdays 91

I was ultra jealous of anyone that just got back from attending a certain music festival in Miami, but this week's edition of Trap Tuesdays cheered me right up again, and with new trap music from the likes of Milo & Otis, LION KNGS, Lido, and Canblaster, I expect it to do the same for you.

Milo & Otis – Trap Arms (Original Mix)
Arm yourselves! Milo & Otis start us off this week with a killer turn-up anthem. Their unique production style incorporates live instruments and surprising genres ensures that something new is always brought to the table. #TrapArms or GTFO!

YNGCULT feat. Maharasyi – When Ashes Fall (LION KNGS Remix)
LION KNGS’ luscious chill-out beat compliments Maharasyi’s vocal beautifully, making this song perfect for a night in with the cat and some Ben & Jerry’s. Be sure to catch YNGCULT at The Sayer's Club on April 7 if you live down Hollywood way.

Jack U – Jungle Bae (Aero Chord Remix)
If Jack U’s fist-pumping original isn’t quite your thing and you love trap, then Aero Chord’s remix is for you. This version features enough drops to make you go holy sh*t at least once. Sadly no DL link--c’mon Aero Chord!

Sofi De La Tore – What People Do (Mickey Valen Remix)
First I’ve heard of Mickey Valen, but he’s certainly got me hooked with this one. Sofi De La Tore’s beautiful vocal was crying out for a quirky future bass flip, and this is perfect.

Lido & Canblaster – Rush Hour (Original Mix)
Two of the most innovative artists in electronic music collide this week to birth one of the most sought-after EP’s of the year. I’ve always admired Canblaster and Lido for their out-of-the-ordinary chord progressions and melodies, and this EP brings out the best of both their styles.
