It’s been awhile but after exam after exam after exam, we’re finally back on track! That said, it’s time for the next artist you absolutely MUST be listening to right now. Without further ado, the next artist is…..
Favorite Up-and-Coming Mash-Up Artist: 3LAU
If you’ve been following the blog for a while, you know that we love this kid. We actually contacted him for an interview (see below!) after hearing Girls (Who Save The World), which is still one of the most incredibly made mash-ups I’ve ever heard. To say that this song plays every single time we go out would be an understatement. His mixtape, Dance Floor Filth, was just that–filthy. Featuring artists from Britney Spears to instrumentals by Alesso, his music taste is impeccable for raging. The kid also makes original productions, in addition to singing and playing a wide variety of instruments. Oh yeah, and he’s an academic stud on top of it all. Below, I’ve listed some of my favorite songs by Mr. Blau. Peep his facebook page!
Turblent Rock Anthem (w/ Kap Slap)
All Night Long (LMFAO, Ellie G, Mann, Darth & Vader)
Girls (Who Save The World)
Check out our interview with 3LAU, as well! No edits. Just gritty, bare-bones-and-all awesomeness. Forgive the rocky start, it was a first for both of us, ya dig?
Fresh off of the release of Dance Floor Filth, 3LAU hits us with another great song. I mean when you mess around with an Alesso or Afrojack track, you better bring your A-Game, as those tracks are likely already near perfect. Justin Blau does just that, combining the sounds of the too into much more than a simply listenable track–it’s a great track. Believe it or not, we do actually have an interview with 3LAU coming up soon. Admittedly our goal was to have it up a while ago but things take time.

This is an honest blog. That said, my personal favorite of 3LAU’s is–and may always be– “Girls (Who Save the World).” It’s just a fantastic track. However, I know that he has been trying very hard to overcome the popularity of his first major smash and I respect his hustle. Check out his latest song “Dubsex,” above. Download link coming. You’ll have it when we do. Enjoy!
UPDATE (Literally, one minute later…):
New 3LAU! New 3LAU! Great kid, great music, great work ethic. My dude.
3LAU just dropped news that there is a video to go along with his new track. Check it out!
