Walking on a Dream (Kids At The Bar Remix) – Empire of the Sun

by Vanessa - March 11, 2011

So we’ve all heard our fair share of “Walking on a Dream” remixes (or so I think I have), but I must say this little number might be the winner. “Walking on a Dream” is one of those infectious tracks that sticks in your head, gets you up dancing, and keeps you smiling.

Gotta Be – Hoodie Allen

by Vanessa - March 10, 2011

Some major throwback Hoodie for your Thursday: this has to be one of my favorite chill jams off The Bagels & The Beats EP. Consistent delivery from Hoodie, a funky beat, and a pretty catchy chorus that’s got a definite Hoodie bounce to it. It’s great to be able to go back in time to ... Listen & Download

September, I’ll Be Gone – 90′s Finest

by Brian - March 9, 2011

90′s Finest, a new artist here on the K, dropped this track yesterday, and I’m impressed. Taking Posner’s honestly depressing Gone In September, and turning it into a more upbeat, and definitely catchier track, 90′s Finest have done well with this remix. So for those of you disappointed in Posner’s album, grab this one below ... Listen & Download

Best of Stethescope Vol. 2 Remixtape – DJ Cones

by Vanessa - March 8, 2011

DJ Cones (or formally Beatconector) hailing from British Columbia, has put out this tape featuring an evident style of minimilist beats and a love for indie sampling. My favorite from this compilation of “bests” would have to be “Falling From My Dreams”, which uses James Blake’s (please go check him out!) chillingly beautiful “The Wilhelm ... Listen & Download

It Usually Goes – OnCue

by Vanessa - March 8, 2011

OnCue‘s latest single “It Usually Goes” (produced by CJ Luzi) is a great example of effective indie sampling in hip-hop, integrating Eisley’s “Ambulance”, off her older Fire Kite EP. Although not featured on Cuey’s upcoming tape Can’t Wait, this track serves as a solid appetizer. Eisley’s eerie melody is the perfect backdrop to the tough, ... Listen & Download

Dear Professor (Remix) – The Dean’s List Ft. KiD iNk

by Vanessa - March 8, 2011

KiD iNk has hopped on an early favorite from The Drive-In mixtape just released from the incredible guys that make up The Dean’s List. Although I think they could have gotten slightly more creative with this (and lengthened KiD’s verse) the remix is still worthy of your Kollection. I often have “Dear Professor” on repeat, ...

Confessions of a College Kid – Soulfully, Me

by Brian - March 7, 2011

Soulfully, Me sent this mixtape over a while ago, and I after listening through a couple times I pulled out these gems, Brighter and Destined To Shine. I love the laid back vibe and the smooth vocals, nothing too overwhelming or energetic. These are my jams for the lazy days, with the windows down. Enjoy. ... Listen & Download
