Hear Kill The Noise ‘Kill It 4 The Kids’ With AWOL NATION and Rock City

Jake "The Human" Stanczak, better known as Kill The Noise, shares the second cut from his forthcoming Occult Classic album in Kill It 4 The Kids featuring the talents of Rock City and AWOLNATION's Aaron Bruno.

Hip hop duo Rock City joins the OWSLA OG for their second collab on the album after their feature alongside Tommy Trash in Louder, the album's first reveal. Our second taste is the lead-off track, which wastes no time bringing the aggression with Bruno's repeated request for silence serving as a fitting intro to the 10-track package. The balance of Kill It 4 The Kids is a classic KTN beatdown that even incorporates some of his own guitar work into a blend of twerk and electro at a chugging 102 BPM for a two-and-a-half-minute tear of a bass cut. Combined with the vicious electro house in Louder, the Occult Classic LP is shaping up to be just that.

Hear more about the making of the tune in Kill The Noise's interview with Rolling Stone here, and pre-order the album here.

Friday Favorites 123

No? Did he maybe help with those berries in the back? Possibly help water them? You know, while Justin was away on tour or something? No? Ok, nevermind. It's Friday Favorites 123.

House | The Knocks feat. Alex Newell - Collect My Love (Leon Lour Remix) [Big Beat]
Mat Zo, Lenno, and Golden Boy may be the more well-known of the remixers on The Knocks' new remix package for Collect My Love, but it's the take from virtually unknown London producer Leon Lour that takes the cake for me. I heard this track for the first time when The Knocks dropped it at their recent show at Mezzanine in San Francisco following the first day of Outside Lands, and I couldn't find them fast enough following the set to find out what this soulful bomb was. The combination of Alex Newell's (aka Unique from Glee) stunning vocals and Leon's percolating, quasi-tropical house rhythms make for one helluva dancefloor ignitor. Check out more from Leon Lour here including a remix of Ginuwine's Pony, and pick up the Collect My Love remix package on Beatport.

Breaks | NITEPPL - Under Your Thumb (Original Mix) [POPGANG]
San Francisco's devilishly talented duo of producer Alton San Giovanni and vocalist Sawyer James, known together as NITEPPL, just released a stellar debut album in Nu Flesh. While the fast-rising act typically leans toward the darker side of indie dance with their '80s-longing "space-disco," there's some delicious breakbeat hiding Under Your Thumb, and that's not the only pleasant surprise on the nine-track release. Listen here.

Deep/Tech | Jon Charnis & Hands Free - Leviathan (Original Mix [Connaisseur]
I've been waiting for this one to drop on Berlin's Connaisseur Recordings for a while now, and it came just in time for my trip to Burning Man. Deep, atmospheric, and featuring one of the year's very best builds, this one is tailor-made for the Playa. Expect to soon hear it everywhere else, too. Pick it up on Beatport here.

Nu Disco | Kraak & Smaak feat. Keyhole - All I Want Is You (Xinobi Remix) [Boogie Angst]
Xinobi drops funky nu disco magic on Kraak & Smaak's latest release All I Want Is You to make the tune positively addicting and impossible to resist. Elongating the track to seven minutes, Xinobi's disco reimagination has a slightly sinister touch with steady drones that fly just behind the vocals. He strips back the instrumentals during the interlude to highlight Keyhole's lyrics before layering back the bongo drums, drones, and rhythm for a seductive finish. Grab this remix here.
Megan Murphy
Pop | RAC feat. Chelsea Lankes - Can't Forget You (Original Mix) [Battlestation]
Andre Allen Anjos, better known as RAC, returned this week with a gorgeous end-of-summer pop anthem featuring vocals from Chelsea Lankes. With its smooth guitar chords and melodic synths, Can't Forget You is emotive, catchy, and everything else you'd expect from an RAC original. Pick up the track on iTunes here.

Jungle Terror/Trap | Migos - Spray The Champagne (Made Monster Remix) [Free Download]
Los Angeles tandem Made Monster remixes Migos' debauched and celebratory anthem Spray The Champagne into horse-powered jungle terror mania. Weaving the off-kilter minor key keyboard chords between trap makes the original feel woozy. However, those same chords over booming double-time percussion are a recipe for absolute insanity. Toss in Quavo's exhortations and this one is off spiraling downhill with a desire to find the feels that lie beyond being too turnt up. There's a cowbell section as the payoff to a drop in here as well that's so fancifully inventive it bears mentioning too. Pick up this manic panic of a remix for free here.

House | Goshfather & Jinco x 1DAFUL - UBER (Original Mix) [Free Download]
The combination of pitched-down vocals and deep, bassy synths is something that I can't quite seem to get enough of. In Goshfather & Jinco's collaborating with 1DAFUL named UBER, they expertly implement this match made in heaven. I hold this track in the same regard as Tiga's Bugatti, similar in the way that they both repeat lyrics that find their way getting stuck in your head for hours after listening. Grab a free download of the track on their SoundCloud here.

Trap | Slander feat. WAVZ - Love Again (Original Mix) [Free Download]
Slander is definitely in my top 10 list of producers right now. Their latest track is taking me back to why I first fell in love with them--their heaven trap remix of Above & Beyond's Love Is Not Enough. They've promised their upcoming EP is a story and based on this track, I can't wait to hear what the rest of the story is. Pick it up for free here.

The Beatport Box 67

Welcome back to our series with Beatport known as The Beatport Box, where we bring you the best of Beatport exclusives on a weekly basis. This week, the Italians go on a tech house tear, W&W and Moti channel Pirates Of The Caribbean, and more.

Deep/Tech | Max - Area 51 EP [Innocent]
You know those times when there's nothing the crowd wants more than pummeling bass, or at least, you know that's what they want? Our friends over at Innocent Music are purveyors of some of the world’s finest bin-busting deep/tech that can be found on this earth, and this week they deliver yet again with Max's Area 51 EP. Three cuts of chrome-polished tech perfection that roll like nobody's business. These right here are real deal dancefloor demolishers. Pick up the EP here.
Deep/Tech | Neverdogs & Reelow - Respect EP [HOPELESS]
The Italians are on a tear this week. This week two in-house favorites from Torino, the Neverdogs, team up with another Beatport favorite, Reelow, to crank out another weighty deep/tech EP, Respect. Perfectly executed percussion, massive kicks, and that kind of cyclical drive that only Italian tech house can provide make each original and rework a perfect tool to get bodies even sweatier on the dancefloor. Grab it here.
House | Robbie Rivera & Todd Terry - Sume Sigh Sey (Original Mix) [Juicy]
Robbie Rivera and Todd Terry have teamed up for the revamp of Terry's classic track Sume Sigh Sey, out now on on Rivera's Juicy Music. Rivera's Latin flair is on full display per usual, but we aren't complaining. Hopefully this one has a shelf life that lasts 'til Miami Music Week. Grab it here.
Big Room/Electro | W&W & MOTi - Spack Jarrow (Original Mix) [Musical Freedom]
Silly spoonerism Spack Jarrow entitles the new collab by W&W and Tiesto protege MOTi, and we're getting serious Pirates Of The Caribbean nostalgia with this one. Cinematic builds encase drops that are distinctly W&W, sure to work well on any mainstage. Download here.

Mat Zo, Lenno & More Remix The Knocks’ ‘Collect My Love’

The Knocks' Collect My Love is one of the best pieces of disco released since polyester went out, and four friends of the Brooklyn duo break out their remixes in the newly released EP: Mat Zo (pictured), The Golden Boy, Lenno, and Leon Lour.

The Knocks' original, if you haven't heard it, begs a listen before we proceed. Alex Newell, originally of Glee fame and most recently featured in Blonde's massive hit All Cried Out, takes absolute charge of the glittering disco ditty from square one and goes on to complete what is now a defining song for both acts.

Now reimagined four ways, Collect My Love gets its first treatment from LT3 favorite Mat Zo, who collides with The Knocks once again after their collab Get Down 2 Get Up. Zo's remix opens up the package with an arguably necessary, however quintessential Zo intro that sets the tone before his dynamic production unfolds. The tune is reimagined with his brand of bright, punchy electro house infused into disco and dotted on all sides with extra details--agile and lush, it's Zo in the zone.

The Golden Boy follows up, penning a pure piano house take that cradles Newell's stunning voice much in the way that Blonde's did, which we know produces wonderful results.

Next up is the collection's most mellowed-out flip in the funky nu disco number from Lenno, followed by the package's sleeper item and surprise favorite: Leon Lour's beautiful Balearic daydream. For all the power behind the voice of Newell coupled with the disco explosion found in The Knocks' original drop, Leon Lour's restrained remix with its soft synth melody and gentle releases walks away having dealt the most feels.

Pick up the remix package on Beatport today from Big Beat here.

Flux Pavilion Drops Soulsonic Force Collab ‘We Are Creators’

A bass titan meets rap legends on Flux Pavilion's swinging, turn-back-the-clock electro collaboration We Are Creators that doubles as the fourth reveal for his new album, Tesla.

The new track follows Feels Good and features the Soulsonic Force--and yes, before you ask, we do mean of Afrika Bambaataa and the Soulsonic Force of Planet Rock fame. Feeling like a page borrowed from the Chemical Brothers partnering with Q-Tip for Go, this track feels like it could've been dropped by Bambaataa himself in a nightclub in the early '80s.

You can see Flux Pavilion drop it himself on his upcoming 26-city North American tour featuring support from the likes of 12th Planet and LOUDPVCK. More information regarding those events is available here.

Stream the new single above and pre-order Tesla here before it drops Sept. 18. .
