Hip Hop mic handler Omar Linx hooked up with Hunter Siegel and Pro Logic for production on his lastest release. Back To You, released via Buygore, has an intense yet ambient feel to it. Omar Linx always hits the mic with such passion and energy combined with melody and synths brings you a song you can really dig into.
Linx can Keep It Mellow too on the other hand with a free one released late last month by Marshmello. True to its name it stay real vibrant with a bassline synth and piano dancing with some vocals that bring the track down to earth. Gotta give it to Linx for not being a one styled one genre artists. Always pushing the boundaries as he grow.

Jauz has been on a roll lately pumping out marvelous remixes. From pop artist Ed Sheeran to Childish Gambino, the man also known as Sam Vogal can turn any tune into a hard hitting future house trap fusion.
For these next couple remixes he goes after SCNDL‘s The Munsta, turning the melbourne bounce track into a trap house fusion. Starting out with the original melody and transforming it into a fine bassline hook, then slowing it down to add some high hats and a nice beat pattern to give it a trap feel to bob your head too. Then he attacks A$AP Mob, turning Hellah Hoes into a house party anthem. Keeping most of A$AP Twelvyy and Rocky‘s lines and of course Nast‘s hook, then pumping it with hard hittin bassline synths. Add this to your set to make any party go wild. But you will have to download if for free first!
