A-Trak, "Parallel Lines" Ft. Phantogram

A-Trak partnered up with Phantogram for a new summertime single called "Parallel Lines." The track recently premiered on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show. If you aren't into the EDM world, this would be a nice, suitable introduction to the scene along with others like Alessio, Hardwell, etc (of course there are more names I can put down). The guitar riffs, drum kicks and chords provide that feel-good, dreamy summer vibe. Just in time for summer festivals too!— Erin Ashley Simon

Elijah Smith, "Legendary"

As part of our submission process, REVOLT stumbled upon 19-year-old artist and self-producer Elijah Smith. Instantly, his song "Legendary" caught our ears and our attention. As a follow-up, Elijah described the song as being one that he "wrote after truly finding (his) way and realizing that music was possible for him, that fire inside of him was burning brighter than ever, it made him "feel so alive." It surely made the REVOLT team feel alive listening to it.—Erin Ashley Simon

Fabolous, "Panda Freestyle"

From Brooklyn to Brooklyn. Taking his lyrical reins on Desiigner’s “Panda,” the No. 1 song in the country, Fabolous goes all the way… off with his own replay-necessary remix. Over the course of a minute and a half, Fab plays a game of lyrical hopscotch, opening lines with tucked double-entendres like, “Talking hawks like we really celtics (selled it),” and witty references like “I know some ni—as that’ll flatline you, get you robbed like Blac, Chyna,” Loso once again showcases his Benjamin Button-like rap skills. Freddy Vs. Jason, his anticipated joint project with Jadakiss, couldn’t arrive any sooner.—Ralph Bristout
