Las Vegas alt rock band Imagine Dragons and Texas R&B sensation Khalid have been having an immense year. Imagine Dragons released their third studio album Evolve to great success and acclaim, Khalid released his debut album American Teen, and they’re both up for some well deserved Grammys. If you happened to tune into the American Music Awards this year, you likely caught the two acts performing together on stage. The medley they dropped on us live is now an official single, and we can now enjoy a studio recording of Imagine Dragons and Khalid’s Thunder / Young Dumb & Broke, an immaculate conjoining of the two hit songs. The punchy mashup is a great way to cap off 2017 for the two projects as we look ahead to Grammy night in early 2018. The single is available, here.

For our final course of the evening, we leave room for the best kind of dessert, a well put together mashup by LA’s gifted production talent, Kap Slap. Heathen Thieves Love Lamborghini’s is three minutes fifty two seconds of creative brilliance. Kap Slap seamlessly blends some of the year’s biggest hits from artists like Twenty One Pilots, Martin Garrix, Rick Ross, Bebe Rexha, Grandtheft, Skrillex, Troyboi, Ookay, JayKode, and Party Thieves for a dirty trap-tacular end of year soiree. Bump this one loud as we count down the final days of 2016. The whomping mashup can be downloaded, here.

This is the third mash up that The White Panda has shared with us this week, one each day, and one by one, the Chicago duo has knocked ‘em straight out of the ballpark. One by one, they’ve delivered to us exhilarating tracks and surprise pairings that elevate or shed new light on each individual ingredient. So, what do the fellas have for us today? Just a killer track that brings together Kygo’s Conrad Sewell featuring Firestone and Misterwives’ Reflection. What they’ve dubbed Reflection Stone is the tropical Misterwives you’ve never heard, a brilliantly hued, rays of sunshine exuding amalgamation of Mandy Lee’s enchanting voice and Kygo’s island paradise.

As I told you last night when I shared The White Panda’s Lean On To The Next One, the electronic duo have returned from a much too long mashup hiatus to bring us a string of fantastic goodies this week. If you missed the track that opened their epic week yesterday, head over to the feature, here. Otherwise, strap yourselves back in for the follow up, a track that amazingly brings together Muse’s Madness and Dej Loaf’s Try Me. Try Madness seamlessly combines the two into a immediately hooking hip hop, pop, and electronic jam. The White Panda explained that their inspiration for some of their mixes comes from their penchant for finding quality vocals paired with lackluster productions. From there, they snag that opportunity to create a new vocal mix that they hope most people would enjoy even more than the original. Well, I’d say they hit the bulls eye with Try Madness. It takes a certain genius to envision what they’ve created here. They’ve taken the exact elements I loved most about Madness and paired them perfectly with the vocals from Try Me.

It’s been way, WAY too long since Chicago duo The White Panda have thrilled us with one of their innovative mash ups, but they’re swooping back with some killer music this week. The open up a promised flurry of dope tunes with a fresh rendition of red hot Major Lazer tune Lean On (the DJ Snake version) mixed together with some classic Jay-Z from his 2009 hit On To The Next One. Lean On To The Next One is a bouncy summer banger, a superb balance between hip hop and funky dance beats. The White Panda’s dance opus presents us a spectacular revival of Jay-Z’s on point delivery and a refreshing new approach on Lean On, though I’ll never tire of that original, easily one of my absolute Major Lazer favorites, MØ included. Grab the infectious jam for free, here. And stay tuned for more hot tracks forthcoming from The White Panda.

Last week, I was sent a mysterious mashup track by a Texas based newcomer named Breathing Room. I was immediately bowled over by his skill on Ethereal, which mashed together a huge, long list of hip hop and electronic artists, including the likes of Electric Mantis, SoySauce, Durrough, Travi$ Scott, Kanye, Drake, 2 Chainz, and much more. Well, guess what? Breathing Room has returned with a new one, again, with little information about himself (or themselves?). Darkness is a thrilling, shimmering hip hop and electronic jam that blends J. Cole with Flume. It’s quite satisfying and exhilarating, indeed.

Fellow music heads, here’s a very interesting one I caught wind of late last night. It’s called Lana Del Rae. That’s right, someone named Chazzzy decided to mash up Lana Del Rey and Rae Sremmurd. What is he THINKING, right? Turns out, No Type laid over the orchestral sadcore strings and Lana’s humming off of Video Games works pretty well, in an off kilter, almost ominous but also melodramatic and nostalgic way. Someone do a video mash up, stat!
