We post very little indie at T2T, but GOOFUS’s “Your Mama” deserves the biggest of shout-outs. GOOFUS, a band started by a few classmates, achieves the most natural of sounds and makes you lose yourself to their hypnotizing melody. GOOFUS’s clean guitar solos coupled with their pristine vocals will have you listening to and singing along non-stop for the next week. I promise.
We’re taking you back to the 20th Century with two traks: Tupac’s “Can’t C Me” and Q-Tip’s “Vivrant Thing.” Tupac, along with the rest of the West coast hip-hop community in the 1990’s, uses more lively beats. In contrast, East coast rappers, like Q-Tip, valued the lyrical content more than the beat. Each trak shows the iconic differences between the East and West coast’s style of rap during the 90’s. Give ‘em a listen.
Can’t C Me – 2Pac (West Coast)
Vivrant Thing – Q-Tip, Violator (East Coast)
For the first joint post in recent T2T history, Ivkov, Trues and I bring you this weeks #TBT #T2T… Buckle up cause you’re about to take a trip down memory lane.
Reach For Me (Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman Remix) – Dinka feat. Hadley & Danny Inzerillo
Hands down the best progressive house tune of all time, Vangelis & Wyman’s remix of “Reach for Me” is out of this world. Now a forgotten dance anthem from 2011, we pay our last respects to this work of pure musical genius.
Need Ya (Feat. Aela Kae) – Kailo.
A tune reminiscent of the 90’s, Kailo’s “Need Ya” will put you in the best mood. The looped sample and catchy melody are sweet.
Heiress Of Valentina (Alesso Remix) – Dúné
An absolute classic, “Heiress of Valentina” completely satisfies your musical needs–there’s nothing more you could want of such a tune. We highly recommend you bump this throwback until it’s 2009 again.
Be sure to check out T2T’s own mashup between “Our Story” and “Heiress of Valentina” from last year.
Nova (Original Mix) – Paris & Simo
Here’s a classic tune that exemplifies all that is right with house – it is recognizable and outrageously catchy. Easily the call for Paris and Simo’s first break out tune.
French Trap producer DJ Snake (the man behind “Get Low,” among others) teams up with rising English Electronic duo AlunaGeorge for a soulfully deep trak that’s at home with solo bumping and ravin’ alike. Check it out.
A tropical house legend combines with a somewhat unknown (but also fantastic) young/rising star to create an unreal trak. Deep Chills has worked on some spectacular remixes of popular songs, while Bobby Brush continues to come up with gems – this one is a masterpiece. Capturing the easy tropical vibe with diverse vocals they set up a catchy beat and so much more. Check ‘em out:
This trap remix of Showtek’s iconic hit “We Like To Party” is huge. Slander and NGHTMRE have increased in popularity over this past year and this remix shows you why. That second drop just catches you off guard. These guys have no chill when it comes to delivering that big bass and sweet rhythm that we love about trap.
Benjamin Francis Leftwich is the acoustic musical genius behind hit tune “Pictures,” that gained him a ton of recognition (FlicFlac and Bearson’s edit is awesome). Boehm steps up big, remixing “Won’t Back Down” to eargasmic results. Enjoy.
Here is another awesome tropical house remix:
Aussie producer Paces emerges from the depths of SoundCloud bringing you an awesomely laidback indie/chill/house tune. The melody is insanely catchy and the syncopated bass line is killer. You’ll love it.
Senator Ivkov has brought you enough hard house – now back to the tropics. Thero throws down another amazing remix, with the saxophone in the background making this trak absolutely filthyyyy. I appreciate good tunes, and trust when I say this is one of them.

It’s rare that we find a talented inter-disciplinary artist. I’m happy to announce that T2T has found another from the depths of our searches. Alina Baraz blends beautiful vocals with top-notch production to produce some of the chillest beats I’ve ever heard. Jazzy, perfectly blended, and tight in mix, her music is phenomenal. Her artwork is also pretty cool. Enjoy the large display and support her on iTunes if you’re a fan.
