I can’t feel my hands after beating on my TV stand during that nail biter 19th Warriors win, but now I can’t feel my face either from how good this cover of The Weeknd’s ubiquitous hit The Hills by Portland duo ECHOS. They offer up an expansive and vastly atmospheric The Hills whose valleys and peaks burst with synthpop and future bass grandeur. The rest of ECHOS’ Soundcloud catalog is more than worth a night of obsession. Hit it up, here.

There’s no doubt in my mind that producer and vocalist duo BONNIE X CLYDE are partners in crime to watch. They newcomers grabbed hold of my electronic and trap hungry attention this morning with a new edit of RL Grime’s The Hills remix, but I was even more drawn into their sound when I visited recent original Rise Above, a trap and future bass extravaganza with much endearing vocals. EDM festival heads will appreciate the sheer power of the track, while homebodies will love the enchanting properties of the wistful melody. If XYLØ went full on trap, this might be how they’d sound. Download Rise Above for free, here. Then jump into Bonnie X Clyde’s edit of RL Grime’s The Hills below for some bonus trap thrills.

It’s not often that a mashup cover is spectacular, but Southern California Evalyn has me marveling at her combination of The Weeknd’s The Hills and Kavinsky’s Nightcall, two songs I never thought of placing together side by side. Produced by duo Louis Vivet, The Hills x Nightcall is a sweetly fiery and polished treat. I’m curious to hear more from newcomer Evalyn. The last time a female mashup cover debut blew many of us away was Phoebe Ryan, and we all know how fantastic her later tunes have been. Free download of Evalyn’s track here.

There’s little that needs to be said when something as epic as this track surfaces. RL Grime, who I just witness murder it at Outside Lands Music Fest last month, has presented us with a remix of provocative R&B king The Weeknd’s The Hills. The Weeknd and RL Grime, it doesn’t get much better than that for trap fans. It’s a clamorous, intensive The Hills with steep slopes, sharp peaks, and bottomless voids. Yes, it’s pure magnificence.
