artist | sultan & ned shepard
track name | walls (3lau vocal edit)


tbt to my absolute favorite 3lau song of all time (which is not an easy pick). in my eyes, the guy can do no wrong. this song blends a range of artists and sounds that you would never guess, together, could have so much synergy. its sexy, energetic and is guaranteed to put you in a better mood. and just when you think you’ve heard it all after a minute in, you realize he is only get started. enjoy.


sultan & ned shepard - walls
david guetta feat. sia & flo rida - wild ones
usher - numb
martin solveig - the night out
the jets - crush on you

artist | le p
track name | history ft. michael jackson


wow what a cool summer vibe! despite a 20 degree windchill outside my house right now, this tune lifted me up and got me jamming like it was 80 and scorching. le p coming from sweden (where else) and mixing in the king of pop to get this track really pumping. if this song doesn’t make your head bop, get yourself checked.


artist | benjamin francis leftwich
track name | shine (kygo remix)


double dose of BFL? yup! did we just become best friends? yup! it’s a kygo remix so i couldn’t not post it. can you hear summer coming?


artist | tlc
track name | waterfalls (bixel boys remix)


i figured we would continue with our summertime theme as we start our week off with this awesome remix of tlc’s “waterfalls” done by the bixel boys. after a nice little intro for about a minute, those familiar chords hit and you transplanted back to 1994. the bixel boys add few sweet twist to the song giving it a dope vibe that only adds to this classic.


ps: did anyone else semifreak out when they realized this song is 20 fucking years old

artist | dan siegel
track name | savanna (bearson remix)


bearson dropping some sexy tropic beats for your sunday. taking the jazz track “savanna” by dan siegel as his inspiration, bearson adds his own personal touch to the track to enhance your listening pleasure.  


artist | clean bandit
track name | rather be (cash cash and valley remix)


its finally spring in nyc and there is absolutely no place i would “rather be” than this amazing city!


artist | nelly
track name | ride wit me (viceroy “jet life” remix)


time for that jet life sound to come back into our lives with the start of warm weather. break out those sandals, the board shorts, the tank tops and coronas…it’s time to get sunny


artist | benjamin francis leftwich
track name | snowship (thomas jack remix)


i was in the middle of the cliff and the sea
with a cliff right behind me that the bitch couldn’t see
she came right at me with her teeth and her dress
and they both fell off

wow. thomas jack and benjamin francis leftwich are a match made in aural heaven. there’s not much to say about this that I haven’t said about thomas jack’s remix of atlas hands, violin, airy vibes, and that voice tailor made for relaxation. needless to say this is going on repeat. my one wish is that it would get warm enough to cruise to this song with the windows down.


artist | wasteland
track name | city of angels (ft. astrid ripepi)


great progressive track from a relatively new artists to me wastelands titled “city of angels”. packed with a high energy beat and mesmerizing vocals by astrid ripepi, this track has everything you are looking for when kicking off the second half of your week.


artist | kaskade
track name | atmosphere [instant party! festival remix]


i’m not huge on the trap sound, but if i’m going to listen to it - it should sound like this; combining the mellow with the body shaking effects of some killer 808s and sup’d up high hats.


artist | lune
track name | leave the world behind


once again, swedish house mafia fever is hotter than ever with their recent  motion picture, leave the world behind giving us a backstage pass to last years epic last tour and a solid soundtrack, including this spin on a classic.


artist | lana del rey
track name | summertime sadness (hotel garuda remix)


hotel garuda thinking just because its sunday that they can pull a fast one and post a sick remix and no one is gonna notice? though lana del rey and “summertime sadness” have been remixed countless times, this version goes a completely different route and is the perfect edit for everyone’s favorite season


artist | tiesto
track name | wasted feat. matthew koma


so it was ultra last weekend, and naturally a lot of new music dropped. all of the biggest dj’s premiered their biggest upcoming tracks, giving us all something to look forward to. despite our pretty strict HQ policy here at ho:wo, i’d be remiss if we didn’t dedicate a single post to that action packed weekend in miami. so i bring you the newest from tiesto featuring the omnipresent matthew koma. this is super poppy for a tiesto track, even more so than red lights, but wow do i dig it. koma is great on the vocals as usual, but this is really just a fun track you can expect to take over your radios as the weather gets warmer. when this drops in HQ we will be sure to update, but for now, enjoy this decent quality ultra rip. ***here’s the hq 3 minute preview. enjoy.


artist | bear//face
track name | taste my sad


since finding bear//face a couple of days ago i have not been able to stop listening to him. by mixing in a smooth chillwave vibe with solid trap beats and the perfect vocal samples, bear//face knows the way to my soul. click play, you wont regret it.


artist | m83
track name | wait [kygo remix]


we posted the original track a few months back with an insane video to accompany it. in the months since, the norwegian producer has been featured on our site more than a few times for his impressive remix abilities. this particular release is in celebration of kygo’s 200k followers on fbook, and it doesn’t disappoint - soaring vocals, pop bottle synths, it has such an airy feel to it. mix that with the warm african vibes and this could easily be the hero’s theme from blood diamond or any other similar action/drama flick.
