[Listen] araabMUZIK Remixes Tourmates Sleigh Bells, Releases Solo Track

Sleigh Bells' guitarist Derek Miller is all healed up after a skateboarding accident left him with an arm fracture, which tourmate araabMUZIK took as an opportunity to put together a congratualtory remix of their song "Never Say Die". The remix is a heavy dose of shredding guitar riffs and brash, pounding percussion, with the producer putting his MPC to work. Stream the remix below.

Along with the remix, araabMUZIK has let loose a brand new solo cut, a head rattling dubstep-infused hip-hop beat titled "Runaway Bass". Check it out below, and after the jump, you can check out dates for Sleigh Bells and araabMUZIK's current tour.

[Watch] Azealia Banks - "Van Vogue" (Official Video)

Azealia Banks has once again teamed up with director Rankin—the two previously worked together on the video for "Liquorice"—delivering a rousing visualization of the Harlem beauty's track "Van Vogue", which was included on Banks' 1991 EP. The video focuses on Banks herself, quickly cutting between various shots of Young Rapunzel and her various outfits and styles. If anything, the video sure as hell shows off Banks' involvement in the fashion industry. Nicola Formichetti has definitely made a muse out of her. Watch the replay above.

In other Azealia Banks news, she recently teamed up with AraabMUZIK on a track called "Succubi", which you can stream below. The song is apparently a beef aimed at Jim Jones, which started over the use of the term "vamp". It's a pretty fucking stupid reason to start beef, but then again the rap world has been known for pointless disses and feuds. Check out the full story over at MTV.

[Listen] Danny Brown x AraabMuzik - "Molly Ringwald"

Danny Brown took to Twitter and let loose the stream of the track which you can check out below.

The track also had a nice preview video put together by Yours Truly and Adidas originals for their "Songs From Scratch" project. You can check out the video here.

[Listen] Danny Brown and AraabMUZIK Team Up for New Song Titled "Molly Ringwald"

San Francisco creative collective Yours Truly and Adidas have teamed up to create a new documentary series titled "Songs From Scratch" to give music fans an inside look at the creative music making process of artists. The purpose is to bring these artists into the studio and give them one day to make a song from scratch, and the first round picks were Danny Brown and AraabMUZIK. Together, the pair have made a track called "Molly Ringwald," and in the video above you can the two discuss their creative process.

The 7" single of "Molly Ringwald" will be released next month through Yours Truly's Love Letters Ink imprint, with a digital single being released on July 17th.
