Premiere: Volknor – Eternal Snow

Our last encounter with Detroits Ethan Garcia sounded like this, an impertive remix needed for Ye’s, super personal ‘Only One’ featuring the last bobble head worthy greats of music, and Ri Ri. Two months, and what feels like an entire winter later Volknor has re-appeared. Bearing a five track EP, a child of love. His taking to reclusion has payed off in a way that just plain bursts out into the world again. ‘Eternal Snow’ is the second track off the self release entitled ‘The Blue Spirit’ . File under Future.

Premiere: Baauer – Promises feat. Fetty Wap & Double Dutch (So Durand & Foster Edit)

All us white folk are in deep with rap’s latest grimy sensation, Fetty Wap. ‘Trap Queen‘ is still so damn large that most people will turn a blind eye to his performance with.. Fall Out Boy. In music hungry, non mainstream circles his feature on Baauers #songsfromscratch with either cancel that Pop blasphemy out, or just plain overshadow. Thankfully.

Subject change back to Fetty’s love-ability it’s high time he enter’s dance music. Baauer opened that door wide open so we can start getting some much needed remixes with Fetty’s many many quotable quotes. Two Canadian Ontario boys who have been know to collab went in and took ‘Promises’ to the club with a taste of Jersey. FC is super proud to be involved with this one, the track holds it’s own and is available for a follow to each of the fine gents who put it together.

DWNTWN – Lost Love (New Shack Remix) resonates with retro synth excellence. It’s the ultimate theme music for wherever your daydream takes you.

The war child charity helps those in conflicted affected countries by providing them life changing support to the most vulnerable children whose families, communities and schools have been torn apart by war. That’s a great cause we should all get behind. Futurecop! had this to say about what war child means to them…

“Futurecop! music has always been about nostalgia, fantasy and dreams. Over the years it has slowly become more deeper, with principles such as innocence, courage, love and equality as something that Futurecop! is now closely connected to. Futurecop! strongly believes in these principles and it is the reason why a charity like War Child is so important. War Child is a great charity because it allows for this channel to me made, between us and those less fortunate. So please help us and even if you do not like our music visit their website, learn more and give your support. We are only in this world once, let’s make it a better place to stay and do something that touches our hearts and connects us all”

Premiere: Drake + Stwo = Trust Issues – Duncan Gerow

One of the many victims of the big three’s intervention into Soundcloud was everyone’s favourite masher, Duncan Gerow. His account was removed and with it, the massive archive of vibes we all spent so much time with. But that hasn’t’ stopped him, nor has a drastic change in scenery. Relocating from the glacier state, to the craft beer alternative lifestyle state may have only pushed together the beats of our time further into R&B at his hands. All in all, he’s hardly skipped a step. And the music keeps on comin’.

Let’s all give back a lil and do the follow thing. Help rebuild, and in exchange.. DG mashups will keep churning beauties like this deep, teary eyed Drizzy & Stwo.
