Welcome to this new column called I Heart Monday. It’s going to be a small column about new music that I found on Soundcloud that I really like and enjoy. No specific genres here since I believe that good music is good music. I hope I can consistently do this every week. So, here’s the first edition of I Heart Monday.

DJ Fresh vs Diplo – Earthquake ft. Dominique Young Unique
Dominique Young Unique has been one of my favorite female underground MC for a while. This collaboration with DJ Fresh and Diplo might be her breakout track. As for DJ Fresh, why? You’re almost like a drum & bass god and now you’re going commercial with producing Trap? As for Diplo, he’s just being Diplo. Banging track though. This is gonna get canned at all clubs, guarantee!

Markus Intalex – Hell To Pay
Markus Intalex upcoming release is quiet a departure from his usual silky smooth sound. Hell To Pay is a gritty darkness with that trademark Metalheadz sound. MEtalheadz is making a comeback with strong release one after another and this is no exception.

Sub Focus – Endorphins – feat. Alex Clare (Sub Focus Vs Fred V and Grafix Remix)
Sub Focus latest stuff has been kinda meh to me. In this release though, Fred V and Grafix save this bland house track and turn it into an uplifting drum & bass number.

Ruffmouth – A Letter To God (Mardial Remix)
An excellent dubstep remix from Indonesian dubstep sensation Mardial. If you’ve never heard of Mardial, he recently created a dubstep remix of silly Indonesian celebrity news and that dubstep remix has been viewed by almost 2 millions people in a month. If you’re curious, just search for mardial arya wiguna on youtube.

Untold feat. Deeizm (Jabberloop Remix) – live jazz band remix
A live rendition of Untold from Makoto. Reminds me a lot of London Elektricity live. Real awesome stuff.

Masia One – Make Up (Sir Giant Remix Extended) feat. Isis Salam & Graph Gonzales aka Black Molly

This new track from Singapore MC’s Masia one is a straight up dancefloor banger. Yacko my favorite collaborator got better beats though (since I made them.. lol)

Jamie Graham – Better With You
The multi talented Jamie Graham were MTV Asia VJ, Host of Sink or Swim on Discovery Travel, actor in major Indonesian motion pictures and one hell of a soul singer/song writer. I produced one track in his debut album back in 2008. Better With You reminds me of Kenny Loggin’s Footloose and it’s hella FUN!

David Heartbreak – Raindrops ft. Skylar Grey
Eminem’s protege Skylar Grey is one of my favorite female vocalist and I can’t wait for her debut album. In the meantime, check out this awesome collaboration with OWSLA recording artist David Heartbreak. It’s a dub induced (not dubstep) hiphop ballad with dramatic atmosphere.

NICK – Never Enough
NICK is an Indonesian indie band with music that sounds melodic and heavily influenced by British new wave sound. They are definitely one of most underrated band from Indonesia at the moment.

Jesse Rose – Alone
It’s Jesse Rose. Anything he puts out, I like.
