Yes, I use every opportunity I can to post about tropical house, but here’s a great track from a lesser known artist, Mark Chill. He’s been making a name for himself recently with summer vibe reworks, and is back today with a remix of Mr. Big’s “To Be With You”. This has all the tropical sounds you could want and is perfect for your beach days. Enjoy!

MS MR – Hurricane (Adventure Club Remix)

advent

It’s been a while since I’ve heard any new music from Adventure Club, but today I was surprised to hear a new style out of them. They take MS MR’s “Hurricane” and add in a melodic dubstep drop along with an entirely new piano line. This chill but slightly progressive track is a good sound for them, and I hope that there is more to come in the future. Check it out below and grab a free download.

The Pilot Kids – 2 Guys, 1 Guitar (Four Hands Rapping) Video

Many artists rise out of viral videos, and I have a feeling this is going to be one of those cases. Donrique and Jonny of The Pilot Kids take face adversity with this video of them rapping and playing one guitar with four hands. The Jersey duo said that this happened because “we couldn’t afford another guitar, so we had to leard to play our song like this”. This original rap “Nothing” is sure to go viral, so check it out here.

Phoebe Ryan – Mine (Illenium Remix)

Illenium, who has been absolutely killing it recently, remixes “Mine” by Phoebe Ryan.  Phoebe Ryan has become one of my favorite artists over the past month or so, and seeing this combination of talent come together gets me excited.  Illenium uses his same electro, melodic-dubstep sound that he has been using, while Phoebe’s great voice ties it all together perfectly.  I would not be surprised to see more and more DJs start to remix her songs a lot in the near future.

Big Sean – Me Myself & I Freestyle

Screen Shot 2015-02-24 at 1.00.18 AM

A sick freestyle from Big Sean who samples Beyonce’s “Me Myself and I”.  The sample creates a chill beat that allows Big Sean to do his thing without any distraction.  When listening to this, look forward to 2:40-3:05 when Sean ends the freestyle on a very strong note and also mentions his latest album, “Dark Sky Paradise” coming out tomorrow (2/24), so definitely be looking out for that.  Also make sure to grad this freestyle’s free download.

Ta-Ku x Jaden Smith – BEASTMODE

Screen Shot 2015-02-24 at 12.36.29 AM

Yes, this is the Karate Kid rapping for 8 minutes and 55 seconds straight.  I never thought I would say this, but I was actually pretty impressed by this and would never expect the son of all-star rapper, Will Smith (Creator of remarkable songs such as “Switch” and “Get Jiggy With It”), to come out with a rap filled with lyrics that I actually enjoyed.  Ta-Ku also shows off his production skills with 4 different beats within the 8:55 that are pretty solid.  Give it a listen.

Carnage – I Like Tuh Feat. ILoveMakonnen

Screen Shot 2015-02-24 at 12.13.08 AM

This song is going to blow up. I could easily see this getting big and being played at every party you go to.  ILoveMakonnen’s popularity has seemed to blow up ever since he was in “Tuesday” with Drake and now I am beginning to see him all over the place.  Carnage has always killed productions with the trap and bass style that he works so well with, and this song is an example why.
