Alexandre - Wit It

Austin, Texas' Alexandre Lavigne, known simply as Alexandre, has returned after a 10 month hiatus with a new track called "Wit It." This "112BPM summer jam" features a funky, back beat, lean-back kind of rhythm. It urges relaxation, with chords that cut directly to the core of your being, setting your soul free. The mixture of the brooding bass bed, resplendent synths, prosperous piano and swarm of summery effects combine to make "Wit It" undeniably wild and fun. Whether the guiding groove, soaring sweeps or jazzy atmosphere, I just cannot get enough of this. Download free via ToneDen. FOLLOW ALEXANDRE: FACEBOOK SOUNDCLOUD TWITTER

Benzi - Get Right Radio: Summer Edition 2017

Benzi is back with his annual Get Right Radio mix. As usual it's jam packed with the most new, and previously unearthed gems. Of the 40 tracks in less than 56 minutes, there's at least two dozen remixes, edits, and mashups, four of which he had his hands on. Benzi always delivers bootleg bliss and this is no different. Expect to be spinning this mix all summer long (download via dropbox).

Stream above and view tracklist below. Note remixes of TLC, Justin Timberlake, Tears For Fears, Busta Rhymes, and Childish Gambino. Plus: Party Pupils "Patient" and eSenTRIK's "Unforgettable" remix. 


Brillz & Trav Piper - Alien (Abduction Mix)

Brillz has been on the comeback big time lately. His new imprint, TWONK has been pumping out fresh bangers on the regular, as has he personally. The lastest "Aliens" with Trav Piper gets two mixes: a club, and an abduction. The aptly titled latter brings a cinematic element, setting inescapable unease. Then there's the bass builds and their gut punching power. Finally, when you're about ready to explode comes the stomach churning alien synths with the drop. I've seen Brillz make many sounds (video), but I have no idea how he made that one. It alone is an incredible sample, but the way he's played with it, especially so well with the future/space/alien theme, the Abduction Mix succeeds in every aspect.Someone's got to play the last section in reverse, maybe it holds proof of aliens. Buy/Stream here.
