The Best Hip Hop Artists of 2015

As we currently are approaching the third month of the new year, I thought it would be interesting to do a feature on the best hip hop artists of 2015. Now, there are a ton of rappers and hip hop artists out...

Kehlani – "Down For You" (Djemba Djemba Remix)

Djemba Djemba remixes Kehlani

Over the weekend, producer Djemba Djemba released a new official remix of Kehlani's "Down For You," which was a single on her most recent album. The original R&B vocals are still in place, but Djemba Djemba places a smooth synth and bass production around it. He added the perfect touches to it without being overbearing or overpowering the vocals. The pair match up perfectly on this remix. You can stream the song below and according to his Soundcloud, a download will be dropping soon,

Future Islands - "Haunted By You" (The Knocks Bootleg)

The Knocks Bootleg Future Islands

Who better to also kick off the Memorial Day weekend then a new bootleg from New York duo The Knocks? The pair have been making consistently solid remixes, originals, and bootlegs since I was first introduced to them a few years back. This time they took on Future Islands song "Haunted By You" and turned the slower track into a summer gem. I'd say this bootleg would be a nice addition to any BBQ playlist or upcoming summer party mix. You can stream the track below and get a free download at the link.

Michael Jackson - "Rock With You" (Bill Wants Remix)

Bill Wants Remixes Michael Jackson

For the most part when it comes to Michael Jackson songs, I think they are best left untouched. I do enjoy the classic Mike samples used in songs sometimes, but I tend to stay away from remixes. Yet, when Bill Wants reached out with his latest remix of "Rock With You," I still wanted to give it a chance. Honestly, this was done really well. He added more funky, electronic, and nu-disco elements to it, which work well with Jackson's smooth pop/R&b vocals. This is the perfect Friday tune.

Trails and Ways - “Jacaranda"

New song from Trails and Ways called "Jacaranda"

Been a bit since I shared something from California band Trails and Ways, but the group released a new fresh track called "Jacaranda." The indie-pop jam hooks you in right from the start of the instrumental and doesn't let up until the end. It is a refreshing song for the genre, as I have vented my frustrations with the indie scene as of late. This single will be on their upcoming new record Pathology, out June 2nd. Stream the tune below.

WYLN & Rooots - "Blacked Out"

WYLN and Rooots team up for "Blacked Out"

I was looking from some intense electronic music this morning and producer WYLN brought it with fellow Montreal producer Rooots on, "Blacked Out." I've heard a few of WYLN's remixes in the past, which were always good, but now we get to hear some solid original material. The mix of smooth vocals and a pulsating beat to compliment it make this a track ready for an increase in the volume. You can stream the track below and snag a free download.

Pell x G-Eazy - "Got It Like That"

Pell x G-Eazy "Got It Like That"


A few hours ago, Bay area rapper G-Eazy was hinting at some new music and that it would be unleashed soon. As promised, a new track with him and another rapper by the name of Pell was released called, "Got It Like That." It's actually a remix of Pell's standout track "Eleven:11," which came out not too long ago. This remix was produced by Christoph Andersson, a frequent G-Eazy producer. Together, the two trade some bars over an excellent beat and showcase their hip hop talents once again.

Goldroom featuring George Maple – "Embrace"

Goldroom featuring George Maple

Los Angeles based producer Goldroom is back with a dance and electronic heavy tune called "Embrace" featuring the vocal work from George Maple. This song is also the perfect compliment to the Summer season, where you can just kick back and vibe the hell out. If this doesn't make you want cruise down by the beach, then I don't know what will. This will be on Goldroom's forthcoming EP, It's Like You Never Went Away. You can stream "Embrace" below.

Jarryd James – “Give Me Something”

Jarryd James

Have you guys heard of Jarryd James yet? If not that's okay, because I just recently came across his music on Spotify and was really digging what I heard. The Australian crooner released his second single called "Give Me Something," which crosses a few genres. I will say one thing, these Australian artists are killing it the last few years, love seeing all this great talent making an impact in the industry. For this track you'll hear a mash of soul and pop with an electronic edge. Looking forward to hearing more from Jarryd James.

ASTR - "Activate" (Dark Child Mix)

Dark Child Remix of ASTR

Although it is Tuesday, there wasn't a ton of music that I was really impressed with today. However, I did come across Dark Child's mix of ASTR's track "Activate," which was a nice surprise. The duo has made some great original material and in the process have released a ton of remixes by other artists of their tunes. All of which have been really well done. The latest to that list is this Dark Child mix, which adds a new bass and dance element to the electro-pop track.

Jon Bellion - "Woke The F*ck Up"


Jon Bellion is creating his own music path and making songs that are certainly unique to his style. His latest release is called "Woke the F*ck Up," which mixes pop and those interesting electronic backdrops. He has a smooth vocal approach, but combines that with production that is always engaging. It's actually hard for me to describe because the way he pieces tracks together is entirely his own, which makes it easy to identify a Jon Bellion track. Once you listen you'll catch on to his style, plus you'll be hearing a lot more from him in the coming months. Stream the song below.

Azekel - "Mad About The Boy"


The cool R&B tunes from English singer and producer Azekel have been growing in popularity over the last few months and now he returns with another solid track called, "Mad About the Boy." This song is also the first single to be taken from his forthcoming,  Raw, Vol. 1 EP out in July. One thing I like about this song is it sort of crosses the genre line of electronic, while still retaining the R&B vocals. Azekel has the talents to grow far in the industry and I'm looking forward to more material from this project.

Ellie Goulding - "Love Me Like You Do" (Duck House Remix)


I think on Fridays, I'm going to start posting more random finds on Soundcloud, because I keep finding some cool stuff. The latest to show up was a remix of Ellie Goulding's "Love Me Like You Do" by Duck House. This version slowed down her vocals and turned the dance//pop tune into a tropical/electronic jam. The song was released two months ago and I was surprised that the plays wouldn't be a bit higher as this is one of the best I've heard of this tune. Stream the remix below.

Fatboy Slim - "Mad Flava" (Autograf Remix)


Production crew Autograf is not new on Oh So Fresh so when they drop something new, you can be sure it will end up posted. The last is a remix of Fatboy Slim's "Mad Flava," which they again throw a cool tropical vibe to the mix. They also got the seal of approval from the legend himself, so you know they are doing productions right.

"Autograf got the finesse, they got the funk, they got the flava. The three F’s right there…" - Fatboy Slim
