For #throwbackthursday we’ve got our latest addition in our In Case You Missed It series. We’re jumping back to June last year when Hippie Sabotage dropped this gem High Enough on SoundCloud, a “flip” (aka remix) of Halsey‘s 2015 smash hit Gasoline. Embedded below is an unofficial video by Nato Gogichashvili which has far surpassed the listen count on SoundCloud and now has over 8 million views. High Enough turned into their followup hit to when the Sacramento brothers first broke onto the music scene in 2014, when their Tove Lo – Habits (Stay High) Remix was picked up by Tove Lo as an official single on her Truth Serum (EP).

Tove Lo said the music video was inspired by the “cool girl” monologue from the movie “Gone Girl”. Her next album “Lady Wood” comes out October 28th. Besides “Cool Girl” no other tracks from the new album had been released until this morning, Tove Lo released “Influence (feat. Wiz Khalifa)”. Listen below:

Tove Lo’s last hit was Moments last year. If you enjoyed that one, since then a Felix Snow – Moments (Remix) came out we recommend checking out.

Now here is two leaders in the music scene you would not picture hanging out and making a music video together; Skrillex and Rick Ross. It’s the lead single off the new Suicide Squad album, so I guess it fits right in with the theme of unlikely team’s being formed. What’s even crazier is they actually got Jared Leto (who plays the new Joker) to not just cameo but basically play a featured role for the music video. It’s a trap single, primarily Rick Ross rapping over a Skrillex beat, but Skrillex also chopped and screwed Rick Ross’s lyrics over the chorus as well. The previous single off the Suicide Squad album was also an interesting collaboration and pretty solid too, check out Sucker for Pain – Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa & Imagine Dragons.

SOHN – Artifice

by

The French DJ and producer Martin Solveig returns from an almost 2 year hiatus since his 2013 hit Hey Now when he teamed up with The Cataracs. This time he’s working with miami EDM duo GTA for a new sound. The unique combination of the trumpet heavy bassline and soft vocals makes for a beat that’s intoxicating (sorry I had to). If you haven’t already check out (and even if you have you should revisit) his 2012 single The Night Out, previously to that he had Big in Japan, Ready To Go, and in 2010 his breakout single (and my favorite music video from him) Hello.

In case you missed it, this collaboration between Just Blaze and Baauer is one of my favorite songs of 2013.

It seems like an unlikely collaboration. Just Blaze, famous in the hip-hop scene since 97 for working on iconic song with artists like Jay-Z and Eminem. And then there’s Baauer, who’s only been around for 2 years but rocketed to fame by his viral Harlem Shake hit. But somehow the two linked up for an epic tour that resulted in “Higher,” one of the genre-defining tracks between hip-hop and electronic dance music; Trap. The song, including the main line “Turn The Music Higher” by Jay-Z, is kind of a rework of “U Don’t Know,” which was originally produced by Just Blaze more than 10 years ago on The Blueprint album. There’s a interesting interview with Just Blaze and Baauer on how the track came to be, on HuffingtonPost, worth the read.

Released under Thump, a short film was made for the music video. The video is produced by Nabil who’s behind many popular artists’ videos such as SkrillexKanye, Nicki Minaj, John Legend and many more.

David Guetta’s latest music video is more like a short film, the song doesn’t really even start till 4 minutes in to the video. The video shows Guetta at a Formula One racetrack dueling another driver, JP, in their quest for league domination. His last music video Lovers on the Sun was pretty over the top as well. You can checkout the Dangerous remixes on SoundCloud. His new album Listen is out November 24th.

Calvin Harris has released his first music video since the launch of his new album Motion on November 4th. It’s the third music video from the album following Outside ft. Ellie Goulding and Blame ft. John Newman.  You might recognize the beat from his previously released C.U.B.A track, now revamped with Big Sean on vocals. Overall, Motion is probably the most impressive album we’ve come across in a while, almost ever track on the album could be released as it’s own single.

Majid Jordan, the duo comprised of Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman from Toronto, first came on the scene with their collab with Drake titled Hold On, We’re Going Home. How’d this young duo score a collab with a big name like Drake? Well besides that their both from Toronto, Majid Jordan is signed to OVO Sound, a record label co-founded by Drake. Their premier EP containing 5 tracks and is available on iTunes and Spotify. The video is created by a neat Toronto video production company called Common Good.

Avicii is back with another sure to be hit titled The Days. The track features UK artist Robbie Williams and is the first single off his upcoming album. Avicii’s new album is said to be more rock-driven with the DJ teaming up with Coldplay`s Chris Martin and Green Day`s Billie Joe Armstrong and more.
