Alexisonfire – To A Friend (Adventure Club Remix)

I’m honestly not sure that anyone is skyrocketing up my list of favorite producers quite like Adventure Club has been lately. The Canadian dubstep duo take on my favorite song from fellow Candians Alexisonfire with just ridiculous results. I used to have this song blasting at all the time and their signature brand of melodic dubstep couldn’t fit better to accentuate Dallas Green’s haunting vocals. Instantly download this one which they gave away for free on their Facebook page without any reserves, 100% satisfaction guaranteed here.

The Jane Doze – Bullshittin On My Coffee Break

I’m not saying this is new by any stretch of the imagination but after stumbling upon this a couple weeks ago, I haven’t been able to get this one out of my head. Big Sean’s verses sit perfectly in the glitchy, sample-driven soundscape of the Zeds Dead production so big ups to The Jane Doze to recognize that. You may recognize these ladies special touch as seen on their marriage of Language & Call Me Maybe…one of the most unlikely combinations you could ever find.

Marcy Playground – Sex and Candy (Papa Skunk Remix)

I’ve never heard of Papa Skunk before today but after I stumbled on the remix of this Marcy Playground track sitting on Facebook, I’m gonna be doin some serious digging. This one’s got waves of full bassy goodness with some candy coated vocals that are perfect for just vibing out to. There is so much good music coming out of Colorado as of late and you can add Papa Skunk to the growing list of amazing producers to explode from there. Grab the free download and enjoy!

D12 – How Come

As one of 2004’s biggest hip hop hits, “How Come” embodies all that worked well between the members of Detroit-based supergroup D12. The lyrics are poignant and talk about how ‘beef’s’ occur through very little reason and escalate to create hostility, even when one has shared good times together; The music is broody with piano and sting quartet samples. Everything simply works in this song – get it on your iTunes now and enjoy!

Clinton Sparks Vs. Semisonic – Closing Time

I’m officially pumped for the release of MyAwesomeMixtape3 sometime this July. Clinton Spark’s latest addition to his awesome mixtape collection features a bunch of danced up version of 90’s jams like My Own Worst Enemy & She Hates Me and this rework of Semisonic’s classic Closing Time is gonna be a jumpoff summer for any live set.

Northstar – Pollyanna

Following up on my brother’s comments on the lack of big releases today, it seems like a good time for a throwback post. There are certain songs on your iTunes that you will simply never skip and this one from Northstar is one of those for me. The title track from their 2004 album Pollyanna was a go-to when I first got my car in high school and will always be one of my favorites for a summer day.

LL Cool J – Going Back To Cali

With a lack of quality hip hop out this afternoon, I figured I’d take you all way back. “Going Back To Cali” was the first alternative rap song to break through as a mainstream hit at a time when LL Cool J was veering dangerously into rap-balladeer territory. The structure is so unconventional at a time when nearly every hip hop single followed the same pattern and subject matter that it probably only found airplay because of LL’s existing fan base, but that same break from the norm is what made it an instant classic. Enjoy!

Mac Miller – Thugz Mansion (Acoustic Tupac Cover)

For some Mac Miller diehards, this may be a treat, as this works for me. He’s completely removed (in similarity) on one of hip hop’s greatest acoustic choruses, and yet his persona does its job working with the song’s message. Being a huge fan of Tupac, we’ve seen Mac cover his “Thugz Mansion” record live on tour in the past many times. But while out in the UK, DJ Semtex got him to actually record his acoustic cover of it at the BBC 1Extra Studios; the hip hop radio show has a bit where it’s tradition for the artists to perform a cover of their choice. Judge for yourself…

*Throwback*/Hip-Hop – DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince – Summertime

For all of our American followers, Happy Memorial Day! In lieu of the holiday, we at TNJ were digging through crates of tracks we thought best resembled the “official” kickoff to the summer and good times (and a lot of drinking, barbecues, etc.). And what better song to release than the 1991 classic “Summertime” (ironically) by the legendary duo DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince (aka Will Smith)! The track went Platinum in an era prior to significant single sales in hip hop and urban music genres. For all of our followers from around the world, simply enjoy the throwback and all the nice vibes it provides!

Michael Jackson – Bad (Afrojack Remix)

A bunch of people were really skeptical when Pepsi & Sony signed a deal to re-release Michael Jackson’s Bad album complete with re-masterings and remixes from top producers such as Diplo, A-Trak and Afrojack. Well Nick van de Wall’s effort for remixing duties has been put out on YouTube and I’m starting to warm up to the idea of remixing the King of Pop. This is definitely a great outing from a world-class producer so be sure to look out for all the other remixes when they drop September 18th for the Bad 25 anniversary album.
