London's old-school, big beat merchants Dub Pistols are back with a new single, dubbed, simply enough, "I'm In Love." As one might expect, plenty of remixes have been commissioned and included on the single's release. Here, the U.K's club-lovin' Foamo gives the reggae-influenced track a wobbly, buzzing bass treatment that compliments the repetitious vocal hook.

Teaming up with Stockholm-based producer Eric L, Brooklyn's Sene busts through the hip-hop gates with this gritty tale of growing up in the New York borough. Hopefully this track will fend off any hungry wolves until his Blu-produced debut ADayLate&ADollarShort sees the light of day this fall.
Could someone please make Har Mar Superstar famous? His tour opening for Weezer didn't do it, and neither did his cameo in the Starsky and Hutch re-make. The tracks he wrote for J. Lo or Kelly Osborne went nowhere, and we have a feeling that his new single, "Tall Boy," originally intended for Britney Spears before her management turned it down, won't be changing his fortunes either. The paint-by-numbers pop tune leans far more '03 than '09, and Har Mar has made the, um, interesting decision to keep the original lyrics, leaving him looking for a "tall boy" to "get inside" of him. Good luck with that one.
On the latest leak from their forthcoming debut album Romborama, Italian rave-aholics The Bloody Beetroots have morphed their sound just slightly to fit the verses from Chicago alt-rappers The Cool Kids. A sinister hip-hop beat drives "Awesome" while percussive synths and Chuck and Mikey's style-centric rhymes hang on for the ride.
The Tres stable has been owning the hip-hop landscape as of late and this exclusive, never-heard-before instrumental joint from the Blu & Mainframe alliance is no joke. A hash of old-school hip-hop, funk, and bass amplitude, let's just say that Johnson & Jonson are about to blow this party up.
Originally crafted by Austrailan trio Digital Manges, this buzzing, Greek-language bass tune has been assaulting eardrums courtesy of globetrotting DJs like Diplo, Sinden, Laidback Luke, and Drop the Lime. Now Sharkslayer of Helsinki DJ crew Top Billin' (who recently showed XLR8R around their hometown) has passed along his hyperactive take on the track for exclusive download. Proceed with caution—this one sounds like Sharkslayer turned up the insanity knob all the way up.
Take Junior Boys' arpeggiating synths, The Rapture's disco-funk basslines, and Daft Punk's vocoded guitar from "Robot Rock" and you've got "Daddy Long Legs," one of two new singles from Brooklyn's Sensual Harassment. The propulsive track builds slowly before introducing a reverberated vocal chant and distorted synth that ushers back in the song's initial groove. The dancefloor has just found a new hero.
