David Guetta - I Can Only Imagine (Ft. Chris Brown, Lil Wayne)

***RADIO ALERT***

This song is about to get serious airtime. It has the name that the teeny boppers are looking for and it will be on your local radio station and nationally under Ryan Seacrest. I figure you should get this house mix Guetta classic style beat in now, before it hits the radio. Feel special when you hear it so you can tell your friends you heard it first

Niki & The Dove - Last Night

"Last night, we got married in a backseat" is about a catchy chorus as they come. This dreamy/electro-pop is synthesized at an elevated level. Powerful vocals outweigh the polished pop beat. The electro/dream/pop movement is in full swing. All aboard.

-Winks

Boy & Bear - Feeding Line

Indi/Rock group Boy & Bear boosting on the scene with their new album Moonfire. Feeding line is a released single with strong undertones and a wide range power on the track. The break in the song with the whistle adds a unique characteristic, and draws a breath during the heart of the music. A fun song to listen to as well as an interesting video to boot. Check.

TV Girl - Benny and the Jetts

Indie-pop group based out of San Diego dropping a lazy day beach song. TV Girl just released a free four song demo, it is a great pick for songs to play when laying by the pool working on that tan (SPF 24, waterproof), or driving to the lake stuck in traffic. It is a good mood song. You will feel good inside with this melody bumping around your noggin.

Frank Ocean - Thinking About You

This dude Frank Ocean is exploding! Featured on Jay-Z and Kanye's The Throne album as well as his own mixtape getting thousands of downloads. Inventing himself as a go-to R&B hook man. It is a slow baseline with some electro under tones. His voice is soul filled and showing his versatility with him performing a high pitched chorus. This is one to add to your slow jam play list. (We all have them)

DJ Skeet Skeet - I Like it Loud

a microwave teeny popper classic. Here is a very G-rated track that is looking to find its way on the airwaves. It is sugar rushed straight from the studio. If you are into this genera you will love it, too much of this type of music tends to create a pounding in my head...

Gotye - Somebody That I Used to Know (Ft. Kimbra)

The music video is one of the more bizarre that I have had the pleasure of viewing. So, with the oddities aside...this is a pretty exciting song. At about the 90 second mark the song begins to take off. (Brace yourself) Kimbra adds a whole new element to the song, with the back up vocals and her own solo. Without knowing or hearing anything from this artist previously it is a lottery I was glad I played. Get it in.

Wiz Khalifa - Proceed (Ft. Big Sean, Curren$y)

Wiz = Fire, Big Sean = Fire, Curren$y = decent. All three on the same track is super duper. Wiz Khalifa raps about his typical weed and drink, but the beat is slower which is where he is at his best. The five finger slap! Plug.

-Winks

J. Cole - Can't Get Enough (Ft. Trey Songz)

Its a Cole world...grab a jacket, blanket, or your longjohns. J. Cole and Trey Songz team up for a great hip-hop movement. Lyrically and beat-wise this song has it all running on all cylinders. Solid gas mileage. It is a fun song to listen to, and I am all about having a good time. Yeeeeeeee!!!!!
