Philly-based pop-punk band The Wonder Years released their second single off of their upcoming album The Greatest Generation, set to release May 14th. “Dismantling Summer” keeps all of the classic elements of their older material. Lead singer Dan “Soupy” Campbell has said that this upcoming record will be the band’s most personal yet. The Wonder Years are one of my absolute favorite bands, and I cannot wait for the album to come out in May.

Our favorite new duo, Filtercrush, is back with a brand new euphoric remix of Bruno Mars’ “When I Was Your Man.” Filtercrush transformed the soulful single, “When I Was Your Man,” into an epic dance floor anthem. The melodic tune features “massive orchestral breaks, and gritty, pounding leads.” Filtercrush’s remix to Bruno Mars’ “When I Was Your Man” serves as an awesome follow up to their debut remix of Rihanna’s hit “Stay.” Click the download link below to head to Filtercrush’s facebook and grab the song for free.

Quiet Luke unleashed the official visual for his new single, “The Feel.” The black and white music video coincides with Quiet Luke’s single “The Feel” nicely. It was directed by Jared March of March Media Productions. “The Feel” serves as Quiet Luke’s first single off of his forthcoming project.
Daft Punk never tends to surprise me with their unexpected marketing for their highly anticipated album, Random Access Memories. Though the duo was not confirmed to be at Coachella this past weekend, Daft Punk somehow snuck a 1:40 preview of their upcoming single? “Get Lucky” in the form of an advertisement. The track includes both of the advertisements that were placed on SNL and even features smooth vocals from Pharrell over Niles Rodger’s guitar work and the robotic electronic production from Daft Punk. The single, “Get Lucky,” may just be hitting French radio on Monday, April 15 (via).

Avicii has just released his promotional mix for 2013 highlighting some unheard tracks and showing his country side. While the music was certainly interesting I felt as if there could have been some better transitions. At some points, there were awkward gaps in the music and random volume changes. Overall, I think it was pretty solid and definitely worth a listen if you are an Avicii fan.

Talented up & comer, ₵HANGE, created a beautiful new mashup titled “Bomb.” The mashup features samples from Zedd, Audien, The Killers, Matthew Koma, and Deadmau5. Read what Change had to say about the mashup below.
If you’ve been following my Music for some time now, you’ll know I started off doing what every other person trying to make it in this business did/does – Mashups. I try to think my style of doing these repetitive things separates me from the rest of the storming herd. Anyway, I hope you you enjoy this blend of amazing original tunes from my personal favorite collection.
