There are more than two Australian power blondes in the electronic game, and Iggy Azalea won’t let you forget it. Premiered on Annie Mac on Friday was the hip hop phenom’s latest release “Bounce,” a percussive track with a very literal title. Azalea’s attitude-laced lines get backup from a broken four-on-the-floor beat layered with jungley drums and a fat brassy melody. Though the raps are slightly reminiscent of Ke$HA lyrics, as a party-starter “Bounce” will make you do just that.Posted by
UK-based singer/songwriter Katy B stunned listeners with her debut album On a Mission last year. Categorized somewhere between dubstep, pop, and R&B, the London starlet shined through with her distinct vocals and electronic-driven beats. Now preparing to unveil her sophomore album in 2013, Katy B treated us with an early Christmas gift, her Danger EP.
The 4-track EP is a star-studded affair topped with Katy’s infectious voice — starting off with a helping hand from Rinse FM’s Geeneus and Jessie Ware on “Aaliyah,” the two singers pay a magnetic homage to the late princess of R&B. Wiley and Zinc lend their talents on the poppy “Get Paid,” while Diplo and Iggy Azalea hop on “Light As A Feather” which samples the previously released “Set It Off.” The title track finishes out the weighted Danger EP and Katy lets her sultry vocals take control of the smooth beat to create slow-building melody.

After appearing on the cover of XXL’s Freshman 2012 issue, Iggy Azaela has spent the last year developing her new hip-hop persona . Met by quick critics for her lack of cred, the Australian blonde-bombshell has taken the year to prove that it is her witty lyrics and surprisingly badass flow that legitimize her music. As a precursor to her debut album due out in 2013 on Grand Hustle Records, Azalea released the Trap Gold mixtape. The mixtape features production help from the likes of Diplo and FKi while Juicy J lends the only vocal feature on “Flexin & Finnesin.”
Today is a major dance music tease full of massive track previews and now we’re adding Afrojack’s remix of “Beat Down” to the mix. If you weren’t a fan of the original, perhaps this version will be more to your liking. With its Dutch style and short, percussive synths, the track oozes Afrojack’s signature sound. No word yet on its release date but we’ll keep you updated as more information comes in. Are you excited for this one or bored with the formula?

Steve Aoki is back with his newest release since Wonderland and this time he is teaming up with fellow Dim Mak producer, Angger Dimas. The track is plain; with vocals from Iggy Azalea (who sounds a lot like Nicki Minaj) and a drop that sounds like sirens, it definitely won’t be replacing “Turbulence” or “No Beef” anytime soon. When Aoki joins forces with other producers he usually brings he fun energy, but we don’t really see that with “Beatdown” – we see more of a hip-hop track. What are your thoughts on Aoki’s newest release?
