Free Fallin’ (Tropical Mojito Remix) – Matoma and Nelsaan

by Kian McHugh - (Contact) - June 1, 2014

An upbeat summer remix of John Mayer covering the Tom Petty classic, “Free Fallin’”? Yes please. There is so much going on in this track, it’s almost overwhelming. The tropical flutes, the smooth John Mayer vocals, the nostalgic lyrics- it’s perfection. If this release doesn’t get you in a summer lovin’ mood then I don’t ... Listen & Download

Crystals – JUDE.

by Chelsea Nice - (Contact) - May 29, 2014

Quick nod to one of my favorite blogs Pigeons & Planes for the find, but now we’re giving West Palm Beach’s JUDE. their premiere here on The Kollection. Their first completed track as a duo, ‘Crystals,’ is a dark pop record that could easily belong on Lorde’s Pure Heroine album, although it will be interesting ... Listen & Download

Patagonia Vine’s North Face ft. Sarob – Joey Aich

by Chelsea Nice - (Contact) - May 29, 2014

This song is so college. Well, depending on where you attend school, this preppy slice of hip hop is a classic and witty approach to describe the follies of college life. While straying far from stereotypical ‘frat rap,’ Cleveland rapper Joey Aich thoughtfully nods to the aspects of college life that sums up the wonderful ... Listen & Download

Us – Haring

by Vanessa Palmer - (Contact) - May 29, 2014

A buildup can have quite a significant impact on our receptiveness to a track. More impulsive listeners might crave instant gratification, a speedier climax; others find beauty in the breakdown, an elegance in the warm-up that makes the climax that much sweeter when it arrives (or even if it doesn’t). “Us” by Belgian producer Haring ...

Let Me Down Gently (Sailors Remix) – La Roux

by Jan Bergengruen - (Contact) - May 28, 2014

Kollectors, give a warm welcome to the new guys on our site: Sailors. Having only set up their Soundcloud page recently, Sailors are still a low-key act with virtually no Soundcloud followers (and you can help with that), but boy have they come out strong. This particular La Roux take is my favorite of all ... Listen & Download

Gates – SPEAK

by Marisa Yang - (Contact) - May 28, 2014

The last we heard from Austin-based four-piece SPEAK was back in February, with their wintery, moody single, “This Much I Know.” Now the seasons have changed, and SPEAK gives us a completely different sound in “Gates,” one that sounds far more similar to the anthemic indie-rock of “Be Reasonable, Diane” or “Peaks.” With the distinct vocals and high-quality ...

White Lies (The Soundmen Remix) – Max Frost

by Christopher Danks - (Contact) - May 27, 2014

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from the Austin-based artist, Max Frost. After his EP, Low High Low, came out a couple months ago, he’s been relatively radio silent, presumably shut away in some studio working on his next big project, or preparing for his upcoming tour with Fitz & The Tantrums. The ... Listen & Download

by Dustin Trauernicht - (Contact) - May 27, 2014

Philadelphia DJ/producer 5 & A Dime has been making his way through the blog circuit for the last few years and in the last year, he’s really turned it up in terms of his own productions. Remixing hits like Jason Derulo & 2 Chainz‘s “Talk Dirty” into a Melbourne Bounce jam, now Greg is getting down with some dirty straight beat originals. ... Listen & Download
