[rcrd-lbl]http://rcrdlbl.com/widgets2.0/core/?m=show_widget&w=essentials041212[/rcrd-lbl] [mp3com-artist]When Saints Go Machine[/mp3com-artist] leads things off with a cover of "Bittersweet Symphony" - one of the definitive tracks of late 90's alternative rock. Copenhagen electro duo [mp3com-artist]When Saints Go Machine[/mp3com-artist] put their own spacey vibe on the track Halifax, Nova Scotia DJ [mp3com-artist]Ryan Hemsworth[/mp3com-artist] give [mp3com-artist]Pipes[/mp3com-artist]' track "Sleeping" a deep electronic vibe, giving it a late-night, sensual vibe. Deep bass and heavy hip hop style instrumentals give this slow jam some serious muscle. Punk supergroup [mp3com-artist]OFF![/mp3com-artist] has members from that count the likes of [mp3com-artist]Black Flag[/mp3com-artist], [mp3com-artist]Circle Jerks[/mp3com-artist] and [mp3com-artist]Burning Bridges[/mp3com-artist] as past projects. "King Kong Brigade" hits fast and hard with serious attitude befitting the group's pedigree. [mp3com-artist]Mysto & Pizzi[/mp3com-artist]'s remix of [mp3com-artist]Steve Aoki[/mp3com-artist]'s club banger "Cudi the Kid" gets things moving with a massive trance melody. With vocals from the track's namesake, [mp3com-artist]Kid Cudi[/mp3com-artist], this one's sure to be a crowd pleaser. [mp3com-artist]Magic Wands[/mp3com-artist] deliver the second of this playlist's covers, with an excellent rendition of [mp3com-artist]Madonna[/mp3com-artist]'s hit "Burning Up," which was off her debut self-title album way back in 1983! The track sounds just as fresh now as it did back then. [mp3com-artist]Doseone[/mp3com-artist] wraps things up on a laid back note. Their track "Last Life" is catchy psychedelic synth pop track perfect for being outside on a sunny day. Looking for more free music?
