"All the Way Up" was a banger when I first heard it just never got around to posting it. When Jay-Z came out of his "Lemonade" coma to jump on the hottest track out, the internet went into a frenzy. I know I'm a week late to actually posting the remix, but if you know me I'm the biggest Jay-Z fan, I had to share this even though it's already old news. Remix for the city!
Major Lazer team up with Grandtheft to bring life to a 1985 dancehall classic from Johnny Osbourne. "Buddy Bye" gets a modern trap and hardstyle facelift. Free download too! Get it while it lasts.
It's not GOOD Friday but we got a new (old) release from Kanye today. When "Yeezus" dropped back in 2013 there was a rumored remix to "Black Skinhead" featuring an unexpected collaborator in Miley Cyrus, but nothing ever came to fruition. Here we finally have a leak, definitely sounds like a rough cut, but here's the "Black Skinhead" remix that never saw the light of day featuring not only Miley Cyrus but Travi$ Scott and Lupe Fiasco. Kinda kills the vibe of the original but it's a decent remix. What do you think?
Haven't listened to much of the Canadian duo Torro Torro but I see Skrillex hop on a remix and I had to listen. The original "Make a Move" is more of a big room house anthem, the OWSLA boss gets his hands on it and Sonny turns it into a dubstep banger, a welcome return from all the pop anthems Skrillex has been on lately. The remix is grimey, dirty, and I actually prefer it better than the original.

Been waiting for this release ever since the Aussie DJ dropped it at EDC early last month. A mix of trap and future house transforms JB's "What Do You Mean?" into a whole new sounding banger. Can't wait to see Alison when she make her way around the US on her "Run" 2015 spring tour.
Bad Royale does it again on the hottest current dance trend; first it was their remix to the Whip and Nae Nae, now America's favorite "Look at My Dab". I don't care if mainstream media killed it, and white people took it over, the Dab is still dope, lol. Diplo jumps on with the Cali producers and turns the Migos banger into an even better song. This should extend the Dab's 15 minutes of fame a little longer.

One of my favorite songs out right now gets the remix treatment from a slew of producers of all different styles. Diplo releases a 6 pack set ranging from future house to trap. Not much else to it but to enjoy!

This is the best release from Black Friday! J. Cole and Kendrick simultaneously release tracks called "Black Friday". Jermaine goes in on "Alright" off of "To Pimp a Butterfly" and K.Dot goes in on "A Tale of 2 Citiez" off of "2014 Forest Hills Drive". Is this the beginning of their rumored joint project?! Take a listen to both and see who did their song better. I think Kendrick got the better beat so it's unfair from the jump. What do you think?
