Ellie Goulding & Xaphoon Jones "High For This" (Cover)
One of last Summer’s bangers gets revamped by two up-and-coming artists- Xaphoon Jones (of Chiddy Bang) and Ellie Goulding. Here, they brighten up the dark ballad by The Weeknd.

1 Love T.O. does a great feature called “Covered,” which is where I spotted this gem. Personally, I’m not always a fan of cover versions, as more often than not they aim to recapture the original song but fall short in doing so. With that being said, when artists deliver a new perspective on a older track, covers can really bring new life to a song.



Ellie and Xaphoon execute that notion to a tee. It’s nice to hear the female vocals, but Xaphoon’s beat steals the show. His ability to chop up the vocal samples and fit them into the background is quite amazing and really takes this minimal beat to the next level. Grab the track for free over at Ellie Goulding’s Soundcloud page.

    I've popped a pill or two in my lifetime. (Don't judge me, join me.) But even if you haven't gone that far, most men know what it's like to partake in the fine broth of alcohol and muster up the courage to hit on a woman.

    Excuse my French: ELMNT "Bad"

    There's a lot of homegrown talent in Toronto these days, but regrettably, some leans too much on ambience for my liking. Not that there's anything wrong with that, I just crave something different from time to time, like this cut from ELMNT and French-producer C Y G N.

    Besides the shots fired at Hood by Air that is stirring up so much commotion, this track by A$AP Rocky and Juicy J is a banger.

    It still surprises me that a youngster like Joey Bada$$ can release a song like "Get Paid" that sounds so authentically '90s.

    Haunting, ambient, and seeming to be talking to no one in particular, the "Thirsty" remix from PARTYNEXTDOOR should be just enough of everything to appease everyone.

    In case you struggled with that title (like me), it reads Suddenly, with the trademark ASAP replacement of vowels with the edgier consonants.
