“I’m too high to care,” the voice proclaims. Its conviction carries through filtered vocals, passes punchy percussion and settles deep in your belly.
I remember how heavy A Boy & A Girl’s latest song hit me the first time I listened to it. Though they remixed Krewella’s “TH2C,” this duo deviates from the original in unexpected ways. Gone are the southeast-asian strings and melodic musings which contribute to Krewella’s laid-back summer tune. In its place stand rhythmic synths and crisp hi-hats that culminate into hard drops. The result? A distortion of the leading lyric from a silly remark into an ominous declaration. That purpose makes all the difference for me.
A Boy & A Girl write on their Soundcloud page that they “felt inspired by Yasmine and Jahan’s beautiful melodies and flipped them upside down into a brooding trap jungle.” A transformation in tone indubitably occurs. However, I’d argue that the remix mutates Krewella’s utopia into an epic dystopia. And in this realm, A Boy & A Girl come out on top as A King & A Queen.
But I’ll let you come to your own conclusions. Check out their song below and make sure to share the love!

Bowie-like chords arise from a murky and mysterious miasma of white noise. Throaty vocals soon join in: “Rather drown myself in gasoline than to settle, oh to settle.. then I’ll burn so bright that I could be seen from heaven, oh heaven…”
This song is certified dope. I hadn’t really heard of Instant Party! before this song and I’ve listened to one or two songs by Quix, but I think this track really stands out. The production quality is on point – this song will bump on a decent speaker system. I checked out Instant Party! on social media – apparently he doesn’t have that many songs but is rather popular on the internet. This song is being released over Elysian Records.

Jauz has been hot lately. Jack U has been hot lately. I first heard “Jack” by Breach because Jack U has been known to play it live. In their mix for BBC Radio 1Xtra, Jack U played this remix by Jauz. Jack (Jauz Remix) is available as a free download via Jauz’s facebook page. Also the original song is great and has an outrageous music video which you can watch here.
