[Been Sleeping On] Asta ft. Allday – Dynamite / Sia – Elastic Heart (Mats Gulbrandsen vs. Cosmic Dawn Remix) / Spike DuBose – My Hood Pt. 1

It looks like I’ve been slacking on a few choice cuts recently, so let’s jump right in…

First up, a hip-pop hybrid from the Aussie pairing of vocalist Asta and rapper Allday. “Dynamite” is an indie-pop delight with a crisp, soul-bounce production enhanced by the range-defying vocals of the young songstress and two catchy-as-hell verses from the MC [I don’t mean to be “gooey,” but this track makes me wanna go “kaboeey”]:

Following that is a mind-altering remix of Sia’s “Elastic Heart” from Sweedish beatblender Mats Gulbrandsen and British beatfixer Cosmic Dawn. They’ve taken the original power ballad and transformed it into a future house colossus brimming with unbridled intensity. This one gets the speakers rattling and the heart racing real quick. Give a listen and grab a free download while you’re at it:

And rounding this post out is the video for Spike DuBose’s hometown anthem “My Hood Pt. 1,” a gritty cut from the Detroit flow-sower’s debut mixtape “The Cherrylawn Ave. EP.” This bass-heavy bumper hits hard, so it’s no surprise the visual accompaniment does the same. Sit back, relax, and follow Spike as he flaunts that Cherrylawn swagger:
