Mike Posner | Ho Hey [Remix]

artworks-000038402652-ilzgpz-large

It’s been awhile since I felt like I could post something by Mike Posner but now with this cover of The Lumineers’s ‘Ho Hey’ I think he has definitely shown he is back with something real nice.  In this track he shows a little more depth in his voice and some great production… If you don’t already love the original to this I am sure you will love this remake.  Enjoy!

Ben Howard | The Fear (Moonlight Matters Rework)

As I continue to pack for my move to NYC and then start my drive cross country posts will continue to be spotty but once I get up there and get internet I will be back at it… until then I will try my best to keep some good new sounds on the site and I think I found a great one today.  Moonlight Matter adds some more body to Ben Howard’s amazing acoustic track, The Fear, and picks up the tempo in this great remix that is sure to get you singing along to.  Also, you may remember Ben Howard from his amazing cover of Call Me Maybe,   HERE.  Enjoy!

Dave Matthews Band | Mercy

Dave Matthews is back with their first single off of ‘Away From The World’ which is due out on September 11 and it is a real solid one.  More of a chill track than a jam track, Mercy gives you the classic DMB sound that you are used to with Crash and Where Are You Going which I am really enjoying.  Looking forward to the new album, but until then here is a stream to enjoy.

Call Me Maybe Round 2

For some reason durring a night of binge drinking ‘Call Me Maybe’ always seems to find its way onto the stereo (or maybe just my phone in the cab…) and lets just say after my weekend in NYC I have relit the flame that was once my love for Call Me Maybe…. Now that the song has taken over the radio and people have taken their stances on whether they hate or love it I feel like I can post two of my fav remixes.  Above is a very chill cover by Ben Howard who turns it into a folk ballad that just shows how one person can take a track and pull a full 180 with it. Below is a real nice electro remix by Milkman that features the addicting strings from the original and then adds in his own club sounds…. Enjoy!

Bon Iver | Holocene (BA$SY Remix)

Time to slow it down even further as I call it a night… BA$SY remixes Bon Iver’s smash single, ‘Holocene’ this very smooth remix that will be sure to get your head bobbin and perfect to just sat back and vibe to…. Enjoy!

Bonus Chill Remix!

Lips – Everything To Me (DJ Fresh Direct Remix)

Mark Foster + A-Trak + Kimbra | Warrior

Well Converse does it again… this time using Mark Foster (of Foster the People), A-Trak (you know him…), and Kimbra (From Gotye’s smash single, ‘Somebody That I Used To Know‘).  This song is extremely catchy and I am sure you will be pressing repeat on this a few times…. Enjoy!

Sean Fournier | No New Messages

I have been posting a lot of EDM ever since Ultra so I think its time to switch it up, right?  Luckily a new month means a brand new track off of Sean Fournier’s latest project, Brace Yourself in which he releases a new free track every month for a year.  ‘No New Messages’ is a piano driven track that has a nice catchy folk sound to it  that shows why Sean is probably my favorite underground singer/songwriter.  Grab the free track below or click here to purchase the bracelet that comes with this track (hence to project is called ‘Brace Yourself‘….. he offers a different bracelet with every song…).  Enjoy!

Theo Katzman – Brooklyn [Official Video]

Time for another Ann Arbor highlight!   Theo Katzman was the guitarist for My Dear Disco (now Ella Riot) which was a band started while the members were attending the UofM School of Music and now he is giving the solo act a try.  In his latest single, titled Brooklyn he reminiscences over his first love (Michigan) and now his new life in NYC.  Enjoy!

Buy ‘Theo Katzman – Brooklyn’

Chad Hatcher | Tunnels And Pathways [Mixtape]

Well I just stumbled on this mixtape from Chad Hatcher that even though it is more than 3 years old, is really something new to what has been posted on A2unes lately.  Possessing a sound that is a perfect blend between reggae, blues, acoustic pop, and hop hip, this Canadian artist really gives you something that is perfect to throw on and vibe to.  A few of my favorites are below but just grab the whole tape because I am really loving his sound and I am sure you all will as well…. Enjoy!

Andrew Clancy | A Year in New York

A Year in New York from Andrew Clancy on Vimeo.

I don’t know what it is about AMAZING acoustic/folk songs set to video montages of NYC (if you haven’t seen Mateo’s version, go watch it right HERE), but they always get to me…   The fact that I will be in NYC next week for 5 day’s could factor in to me loving this so much…. but hey, Amazing song + Amazing city = great video… ha  Check the video above, download the song below for free (only for November through Amazon.com), and click to read more to hear the creator’s story about the video…  Enjoy!

Collin McLoughlin | Game Time Cinema

To warm up you guys for this week’s Whomp Wednesday here is an interesting mash/remake by Collin McLoughlin called ‘Game Time Cinema’.  He sings the lyrics from Gary Go’s ‘Cinema’ and throws it over Zomboy’s “Game Time” and its works perfectly.  Enjoy!

Ellie Goulding | Heartbeats (Cosmonaut Grechko edit)

To start today off I have a very chill song which takes Ellie Goulding’s recording of the Knifes’ song, Heartbeat and adds a nice smooth electro beat over it. Cosmonaut Grechko does a great job taking this already beautiful recornign and just adding enough production to make it sound like a full studio release and becomes a great song.  I may be bias because Ellie is def one of my favorite female artists right now… but at the same time that is because she is AMAZING…. Enjoy!

Keegan DeWitt | Thunder Clatter

Thunder Clatter (Daytrotter Barnstormer Memory Montage) from Keegan DeWitt on Vimeo.

For this week’s Tuesday Trot we wont be giving you a session from Daytrotter, but instead a here is a Barnstromer Exclusive that we got a month or so ago when I saw Keegan DeWitt at a the Barnstormer show in Dexter, MI.  At this show he performed a great new song called ‘Thunder Clatter’ which is a very catchy track a great vocals and a nice upbeat instrumental.  I really love the guitar riff in this song and really got everyone dancing at the show.  Be sure to grab BOTH of Keegan’s actual Daytrotter sessions HERE if you missed them when we posted it, and here is a great track to give you a feel of how he sounds in the studio… Enjoy and check out the video which is made from clips from the Barnstormer Tour!
