San Diego’s Carlos Serrano is proving himself to be quite the masterful mash up extraordinaire. I last featured his Nas and Flume mashup Made You Hold On, but now, he tears back onto IHM with this spectacular remix, Thugz Drowning. Who does he meld together on the sick tune? None other than 2Pac and Banks. Uh-huh. You read that right. And he’s worked wonders blending the two together. 2Pac’s rapping and Banks’ dark, smoky electropop somehow go hand in hand in a husky, fierce partnership.

Who doesn’t love 2Pac’s Changes? I mean, seriously, who doesn’t love it? I haven’t listened to it in ages, but Changes suddenly appeared out of nowhere again, when NYC/Jersey producer Gazzo offered up this updated remix version. It’s a fresh take that I couldn’t help bouncing around to in my chair everytime I listened to it today.The remix blends funky brass, future house, and progressive house, resulting in a highly energetic and epic track.

I’m nearly jumping out of my skin waiting impatiently for new music from Cleveland alt pop band SomeKindaWonderful after being utterly swept off my feet by their debut single Reverse earlier this year. It’s still one of my favorite alt pop songs of the year. SomeKindaWonderful’s debut album comes out on June 24. Though they haven’t given us much new music to hear off the album, they have given us a fantastic cover of 2Pac’s California Love. They continue to put a sultry, smokey, brooding spin on classic hip hop tracks with this brand new cover of Notorious B.I.G.’s Juicy. The alt take on the rap classic reminds me greatly of The Neighbourhood. It’s dark, yet smoldering hot. Now, I have this irresistible urge to listen to Reverse again, so let’s tune in below…

Another surprise cool cover that arose this week is a total genre redefining of classic 2Pac tune California Love by one of my favorite newcomers of late, Cleveland’s SomeKindaWonderful. That’s right. The guys who gave us the spectacular single Reverse, which is exploding and blowing up alt charts right now, covered the well loved hip hop tune. SomeKindaWonderful’s California Love is a gritty alt rock version that lies somewhere in between The Neighbourhood, AWOLNation, and Imagine Dragons. Thanks for the love, SomeKindaWonderful!

Alllllright… just for you guys, I’ll throw these together on one post. It’s not everything, but it’s some of the great sets that came from weekend 1 of Coachella.

Please note, I can’t guarantee all these work later in the day as the suits at Coachella will probably put the smack down on these uploads/shares.
