Minnesota, known for his eclectic blend of dubstep, bass, trap, electrosoul, etc., has just released his newest EP Altered States. Following huge success with his Ancient Machines and Astral Projection EPs, Christian Bauhofer, better known by his stage name, Minnesota, has graced the ears of millions more with yet another free collection of music. Minnesota heavily samples rap vocals throughout the tape, including Biggie and others, and features legendary rapper Zion I in "Float." He also samples Yasunori Mitsuda's "Schala's Theme" in "Indian Summer," a sample which you may recognize from Wiz Khalifa's song "Never Been." Anyway, enjoy the tape, and support up-and-comer Minnesota!

Coyote Kisses are a first-time feature on musipus, but I couldn't be happier to debut them! A few friends and I saw them in concert a couple weeks ago, and they put on an absolutely killer show in every possible regard. (They blew the unnamed performer for whom they opened out of the water.) The glitchstep-space-punk-glitterhop duo of Bryce and Joe recently entered the Beatport remix competition for Seven Lions' song "Days To Come" and have quickly gained an edge, although only by a handful of votes. If you like the remix, vote for them on Beatport! Enjoy.
We asked our friends and favorite artists right now for a neat selection of remixes. We're pretty pleased with the results. Enjoy! It's a free downloadable EP!
The remix EP was originally entitled "Club Cœur: Remixes" ("Klub der Herzen" in French), but due to some complications with their label, the trio had to abruptly change the name of the EP, its cover art, and the names of the songs. Now that the confusion is over, sit back, relax, and enjoy these groovy beauties.
P.S. If anything, listen to Change (Vanilla & Projekt Gummizelle Remix), which is just Change (Vanilla Instrumental Remix) with some soothing German rap vocals on top. Unfortunately, I have no earthly idea what is being said, but the flow is smooooooth.

Dirty drop. That is all.
Edit (12/1/2012): Saw these guys—along with Paper Diamond, Xilent, Gemini, Barenoize, and others—last night, and they put on a phenomenal show, showcasing masterful transitions of filthy drop after filthy drop, which were all accented by a fantastically captivating LED screen that spanned the entire stage. (It is also worth noting that I was completely sober the entire show, so my seeming over-enjoyment of certain songs or artists is based solely on the artists' showmanship and the fact that I dance the entire time at electronic shows.) As soon as I sensed the build-up of this song slowly making its way into my eardrums, I went nuts. When it dropped, my mind was officially blown. I'm not really a fan of super heavy dubstep usually (or super heavy anything for that matter), but I now understand exactly why this genre of music is created—for performances. So yeah, great show, even while sober.

These two calming tracks are brought to you by honorary musipus contributor Sir Scotty K. I love both of them personally, but I love "New Life" a tidbit more.
Listen, download, and enjoy.
I've really loved this track since it came out a little over a month ago—just ask any of my miserable roommates who have graciously dealt with listening to it since then. Anyway, I noticed it had crept up back into the Hype Machine's coveted #1 spot again, so I figured it would be appropriate to post it. Suspenseful and emotional, this track provides the perfect respite for any occasion. Listen, download, and enjoy.

Thanksgiving is here, and lovers of 808 drums and booming bass have a lot to be thankful for! Diplo's trapstyle remix of "Sweet Nothing" has been surfacing throughout the electronic community for a couple weeks now, but Diplo just dropped the official (with a free download to boot). It'll only be available for free for about 30 more minutes though, so hurry!

Bonus: Bondax's remix of "You Know You Like It" is another favorite of mine.
