Black Caviar Delivers Funky Reimagination Of Charlie's Angels Theme For New Movie

Black Caviar Delivers Funky Reimagination Of Charlie’s Angels Theme For New Movie

The new Charlie’s Angels film starring Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska releases November 15, but fans will be able to listen to the film’s original motion picture soundtrack two weeks early. The full soundtrack is now available on Spotify, but we want to direct your attention to the final track on the album, an absolutely juicy remix of the film’s theme song by Black Caviar.


It’s hard to find anyone who doesn’t know the theme from the show/films, even if they’ve never seen either of them. The horns, the melody… it’s absolutely iconic. And what Black Caviar has done with it shows they know exactly what it needed.

The melody is kept well intact while it’s given a groovy, funky overtone thanks to synth work and a few extra drums. But boy are those horns as salient as ever! And thank god, too, as they give the remix a huge dose of nostalgia.

Check out Black Caviar’s remix below, and buy/stream the Charlie’s Angels Soundtrack here.

KANDY Releases Latest Crossover Single, "Let Me Down," via Thrive Music

KANDY Releases Latest Crossover Single, “Let Me Down,” via Thrive Music

KANDY just released his latest crossover single today on Thrive Music, coined “Let Me Down.”


Starting with a sound and vocals that evoke a memory of early ’00s R&B, it quickly jumps into a driving rhythm with a bouncy house beat. It’s this sort of natural crossover that makes KANDY stand out from his peers who aren’t nearly as adept at blending pop and house.

Of course, this is just the latest of KANDY’s tunes to make a splash, as his biggest single to date “Keeping Secrets,” also via Thrive Music, topped the Billboard charts at #33.

Check out “Let Me Down” below and help get it even higher!

Zeds Dead Drop New Deadbeats Radio Mix For Halloween

Zeds Dead Drop New Deadbeats Radio Mix For Halloween

Entering late into the Halloween mix race is Zeds Dead! One of my first times seeing the Canadian duo was at HARD Day of the Dead 2013 when they played atop a massive haunted house, so I have no doubt they can throw down a spooky mix along with the best of em. Thankfully, I didn’t have to listen very long to have my suspicions confirmed.


This is easily one of the spookiest mixes of the holiday, with “Monster Mash,” “Devil’s Den,” a “Thriller” mash up, the duo’s own “The Twilight Zone,” and more, including 1788-L’s new remix of the Halloween theme song. Track selection is only a part of the game when it comes to presenting a certain vibe within a mix, but Zeds Dead have it down to a science.

Check out the full mix below!

Tracklist:
Stranger Things – Main Theme (JACKNIFE Bootleg)
Rezz & Malaa – Criminals
Zeds Dead – Demons
Bobby Pickett & The Crypt Kickers – Monster Mash

Axwell Drops Fiery New Remix For Halsey’s “Graveyard”

Axwell brings a different kind of Halloween vibe this year with his new remix of “Graveyard” by Halsey.


This combo isn’t a total surprise, but it’s still somewhat unexpected. Axwell teased an unnamed remix a little over a week ago and dropped this one on fans today. Not only are Halsey’s vocals pitched down for a bit of a darker vibe, the entire vibe of the song is thoroughly reimagined.

The original “Graveyard” was as close to a singer/songwriter masterclass as you get, with acoustic guitar, soft electronic pads, and Halsey’s enchanting vocals. As soon as Axwell got his hands on it, the electronic aspect was pushed to its limits with the Swedish house star at the helm. Vocals were chopped and screwed and the quaint songwriting and composition was replaced with a dirty bassline fit for dark clubs at 3am.

Check out the remix below, and catch Halsey on tour here.

Martin Garrix Drops Strangely Pleasant Song “Used To Love” For Halloween

Everyone today is dropping spooky tracks or mixes in celebration of Halloween — except for Martin Garrix. Honestly, it’s hard to tell if there’s a spooky bone in the wholesome Dutch boy’s body, and his new song with Dean Lewis, “Used To Love,” reinforces the suspicion that there isn’t.


“Used To Love” is the usual Garrix fare, with some quaint vocal chops in the drop and an non-intrusive melody. Lewis’ voice never really stands out from the production, which itself never really reaches any sort of crescendo. It’s a lot like his songs “No Sleep” with BONN or “There for You” with Troye Sivan, showing off a more mellow side to his sound, rather than the firework-inducing main stage bangers most people know him for.

Check out “Used To Love” from Martin Garrix and Dean Lewis below, out now on STMPD RCRDS. Catch Martin Garrix on tour here.

Rezz Drops New Collab with Malaa During Freaky Deaky Performance [WATCH]

Rezz & Malaa Ring In Halloween With Their Epic Collab, “Criminals”

There’s lots of new music to tune into this Halloween. Between new 1788-L, RL Grime, Martin Garrix, and more, it can be hard to choose. That being said, for Rezz and Malaa fans, the choice is clear.


The two just dropped their first collab together, “Criminals.” At first listen, it’s a brilliant combination of both their styles, melding Malaa’s house vibes with Rezz’s more technical synth and bass work. With each successive listen, the intricacies make themselves more and more clear, from the vocal work to the tiny little background synths that give it that really spooky ambiance.

Check out “Criminals” below! You can find tickets to see Rezz on tour here, and Malaa here.

Lane 8 Drops Enthralling 2-Hour Spooky House Mix For Halloween

Lane 8 Drops Enthralling 2-Hour Spooky House Mix For Halloween

Halloween can manifest itself in a lot of different ways. You could find joy in giving others candy when they come to your door, you can dress up and go out partying, or you could turn your porch lights off and enjoy the fact that your roommates are out of the house for the night and cozy up with a good book and a cup of hot cocoa…


In the same way, Halloween can present itself differently in music. We’ve already seen dozens of bass music mixes come out to celebrate the horror filled nights, with one of the biggest still on its way, but how about house?

The groovy genre doesn’t typically have that sort of growling, impending-doom type of sound to it, so how do you make it spooky? You up the suspense, the darkness, the looming sense of unease. It’s not an easy task by any means, but Lane 8 accomplishes the task spectacularly.

While two hours for a mix might seem like a hefty task, as well, á la BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix, Lane 8 goes beyond that for 140 minutes of groovy, dark, foreboding house that flows like a demon into the night. Even listening to it in the morning will give you a bit of a boost going into the day. Listening at night, well… that’s another story entirely.

Check out Lane 8’s Halloween 2019 mixtape below, and buy tickets to see him live on tour here.

Armin van Buuren Unleashes 7th Studio Album 'Balance' [LISTEN]

Armin van Buuren Unleashes 7th Studio Album ‘Balance’ [LISTEN]

Armin van Buuren‘s seventh studio album has arrived, Balance.


Sprawling two discs and 28 tracks long, Armin provides nonstop energy in a variety of forms. Diversity is key — from soft, ballad-like productions to pop-driven dance music, Balance has it all. Boasting massive festival tracks like “Blah Blah Blah” and “Stickup,” the album also has its fair share of bangers, as well as a new track with Ne-Yo and more.

Armin believes his new body of work is about thinking in possibilities rather than definition, and about what music could be instead of what it should be. It’s an amazing notion if you think about it.

He explains in his own words:

Every song I make teaches me something new, and the next song is always a result of all my previous records, the new things I learned and the people I met. Over the years, this process — and especially the fun of creating – became more and more important to me. It’s a journey that gives me meaning and helps me learn more about my personal interests rather than focus on the recognition I get for the outcome. That’s the big difference between who I am today and who I was a few years ago. ‘BALANCE’ is a new chapter in my book of life, the result of venturing into known and unknown territories while finding the balance in between.

Listen below and get tickets to see Armin live here.

ZHU Gets Dirty On “Came For The Low” with partywithray

ZHU has been on an absolute roll in 2019 after releasing his stunning RINGOS DESERT album last year. Having already teamed up with Sofi Tukker, NGHTMRE, and The Bloody Beetroots, he now turns to partywithray for an enthralling and absolutely dirty deep house song, “Came For The Low.”


“Came For The Low” is everything anyone should want in a dirty house track. It has a perfectly textured bassline, and those super deep vocals hit just the right spot coupled with ZHU’s own idiosyncratic vocal style. Everything blends and intermingles fantastically, creating one swirling pool of sound that is just as easy to jump into as it is hard to get out of.

Listen to “Came For The Low” from ZHU and partywithray below.
