ZHU, Skrillex, and THEY. were a jaw dropping triumvirate when the three acts united on mega-hit Working For It two years ago. Even today, I still can’t get enough of that massive tune, which you can re-visit via YouTube, here. A mysterious brother duo named TWO LANES has served up a brilliant re-imagination of the track. It’s a robust whirring future bass and melodic bass edit.  The electronic project plans on releasing their very first single, Long Way Home, on January 26th. This gripping remix of Working For It certainly leaves us salivating for more from the pair, and we can’t wait to hear their single.

Charli XCX’s Boys is undeniably one of this year’s best pop songs, and its video has also driven as much discourse, tributes, and adulation as any other music video in 2017. Though there has been a plethora of fine remixes and covers of the track, we definitely did not expect a new rework at the end of the year from alt-R&B and hip hop trailblazers THEY.! But that’s exactly what the duo have done to close out their sensational year. They released their critically acclaimed debut album Nü Religion: HYENA earlier this year, and now they’ve infused Boys with a copious dose of their R&B influenced slinky seductive allure, capped off with smooth cooing. THEY., who are signed to Mind of a Genius Records along fellow vanguards like ZHU, Gallant, Klangstof, and Kwaye,, will surely continue to break new ground and innovate new music in 2018. Their remix of Boys is available as a free download, here.

It’s actually been quite some time since producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Lido has given us some new original music. That’s not to say we haven’t been incredibly elated listening to his cover of Solsbury Hill and his sensational remix of Portugal. the Man’s Feel It Still, over and over and over again these past months. But we’re over the moon that Lido has since returned with Not Enough, which is more than enough of the electronic maestro’s dexterous brilliance. He even partners up with groundbreaking R&B and hip hop duo THEY. on the song, which gives us a massive dose of old school New Jack Swing alongside its R&B dance groove and retro hip hop vibes. Lido and THEY. have generously made Not Enough a free download, here.

I still recall the moment I encountered Los Angeles’ Tarro over a year ago. He literally dropped my jaw with his bewitching chill trap. Though those early tracks I shared seem to be long gone from Soundcloud, the producer makes a ravishing return to IHM with a remix of hip hop and alt R&B duo THEY.’s Deep End. We gladly tumble into the “deep end” of this heavy stuttering trap and future bass remix as Tarro carries us away with hard skittering drums and grand brooding atmosphere. The gloriously riveting remix is a free download, here.

As if Mind Of A Genius signed Los Angeles project THEY. hasn’t already proven themselves one of the most forward thinking alt hip hop bands of the moment, the duo have gone ahead and sampled Nirvana’s Polly for their latest masterpiece, Rather Die. Though its name seems rather morbid, Rather Die is a spry skimming, sprightly hooking mosaic crafted out of rock, trap, and soul. There’s no denying the creativity behind the track, and there’s no avoiding obsessing over its gritty fierce, melodious ensnaring bearing. Download Rather Die for free from Toneden.

Canadian producer UNBLOOM’s music tends to contradict his chosen pseudonym. We know from past experience that UNBLOOM’s sleek intoxicating electronica more than blooms, it explodes. New song They carries us away on that bursting tidal wave, surrounding us with pounding drums, lush synthesizers, and hearty bass in a way akin to fellow producers like Mura Masa and POMO. Joining UNBLOOM on lyric writing and lending her elegantly sensuous vocals is up and coming singer Layla Mora. Nu-funk, future bass, and soulful R&B wed seamlessly on this crisp oscillating, luxuriantly springing beauty.

Though he goes by the name Minnesota, Christian Bauhofer hails from here in the bay. The Berkeley based DJ and producer has given alt hip hop and R&B duo THEY. a visceral pumping, torrid hypnotic remix treatment. THEY.’s Motley Crew goes deep house on Minnesota’s gritty driving, punchy jabbing edit. The remix is sensuous jolting and salacious intoxicating. You might recall that a flood of Motley Crew remixes arrived on our plates near the beginning of the year. This late comer might very well be the best out of all of them. Download Minnesota’s remix for free, here.
