The endless struggle between man and machine finally gets the soundtrack it deserves thanks to Funkin Matt, whose stomping, massive “I Wish” is a cyborg anthem for the ages. Get it now on Beatport!
Already a staple of festival sets from A-Trak, Crookers, Nicky Romero and many more, the song’s metallic grooves and yearning vocal (“I wish I was a robot… I wish I could fly…”) smash together to create perhaps the finest track yet from this Oslo up-and-comer. B-side”Rasp” is just as electric, with big room chords cascading over a massive, robo-voice bassline. Plug in and play ‘em out…
Preview the two new tracks (and more FM goodies) on his recent “I Wish” promo mix.
A-Trak and Zinc enlisted dancehall vixen Natalie Storm to liven up their already-massive cut “Stingray” and the awesome “Like The Dancefloor” was the result.

It comes backed with mega remixes from Shadow Child, Dismantle and JWLS. Drop it down and cop dat! Read More
Craze and Codes get housey on their latest Slow Roast collab “Deeper,” out now on Beatport, iTunes and everywhere else fine digital music is sold. Their smoothed out collab is perfect for any dancefloor occasion – but lest you think these party rockers are getting mellow on us, they each turn in remixes (Craze’s “Moombah Flex” and Codes’ “Big Room” mix) that drive the song even “deeper” into banger territory. VIBEZ! Peep the 007 inspired video (courtesy Scion A/V) after the jump. Read More
Fool’s Gold’s resident dance pop duo Telephoned slow down the BPMs for “Last Time,” a swirling end-of-summer jam built on jumprope melodies and Aqua Net synth lines that you’ll be humming well into next year. Get it now on iTunes!
Sammy and Maggie’s new wave funk gets cranked to the max by an expert roster of remixers: Krystal Klear drags the song into proper New Jack Swing territory (complete with Seinfeld-ian slap bass!), Amtrac turns up the tempo with his club-ready disco house mix, while Kutkorners provides a closing credits-worthy boogie slow burner. Major Lazer’s buddy JR Blender even shows up to the party with a sweet lover’s rock version of Telephoned’s “The Vow,” serving as a perfect postscript to this must-listen remix collection. We’re giving up the Krystal Klear remix as a free download to get you in the mood…
Cardo is the peerlessly funky young producer who has provided smoked out soundbeds for a literal Who’s Who of rap’s new generation. After helping craft Wiz Khalifa’s sound on the beloved Kush & OJ and Taylor Allderdice mixtapes, and lacing everyone from Freddie Gibbs to Mac Miller with his signature grooves, Cardo reaches new musical heights on his debut EP, Everything I$ Gold. Get it now on iTunes!
It’s equal parts gangsta soul music, futuristic synthesizer trips, and unstoppable 808 bump, an awesomely region-less hybrid inspired by DJ Quik and Pimp C classics but rightfully belonging to one dude alone… Cardo on the beat! (For even more tracks, check out his Foolcast mix featuring two hours of Cardo’s production for other artists.)
