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!
Free Download

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.
Free Download

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.

Jay Z Relaunches Tidal With Help From Fellow Artists

Jay Z called upon the likes of Calvin Harris, Daft Punk, deadmau5, Kanye West, Madonna, and others to help relaunch the streaming service Tidal, a music subscription platform owned by artists.

The relaunch followed Jay Z's purchase of the Swedish streaming firm Aspiro for $56 million earlier this month, home to both Tidal and WiMP. It claims to offer higher audio resolution than current streaming services on the market like Spotify, Deezer, Rdio, and iTunes. High-definition subscriptions to Tidal start at $19.99, with an option to subscribe to standard-definition at $9.99.

The star-studded press conference and launch featured appearances from 16 pop icons that, according to Billboard, all hold a three percent share in the company. Alongside the affluent backing of Tidal's high-def service, Jay Z promises that the platform will offer exclusive content from these artists and more. It is his hope that Tidal will revive the music industry and allow artists proper compensation for their work.

"People are not respecting the music, and devaluing what it really means," Jay Z told Billboard. "People really feel like music is free, but will pay $6 for water. You can drink water free out of the tap and it's good water. But they're okay paying for it. It's just the mindset right now."
Coming in at 540,000, Tidal's subscription numbers are low to compete with Spotify's millions. The difference lies in Tidal's ability to offer listeners lossless over AAC streamed files, meaning higher fidelity sound for users that own headphones or speakers with the capability to stream at higher bit rates.

It will be interesting to see what kind of exclusive content Tidal will release (maybe new Daft Punk music is just around the corner) or if their subscriptions will rise in the coming months. In the meantime, you can head to Tidal's website to watch the entire press release video and start your free trial of their service here.

Claude VonStroke and Jesse Rose Get Techy On ‘Bare Mountain’

Dirtybird Reocrds label boss Claude VonStroke (pictured above) partners with frequent label associate Jesse Rose for Bare Mountain, their latest collaborative release.

A minimalist, crunching piano house track with clear techno influences, it continues an established tradition of forward-thinking productions from both tunesmiths.

If looking for a track with a unique flavor that still blends well with established sounds to make bodies groove, one need not look any further. This track is currently available for purchase here.
