Three new covers from three artists I adore in DWNTWN, King Fantastic and Polaris At Noon. I became fans in three different ways, attending a King Fantastic show, falling in love with a DWNTWN song and picking up a Polaris At Noon CD while attending another artists show.
Click more to listen and download DWNTWN‘s cover to Calvin Harris‘ “Feels So Close”, King Fantastic‘s cover of Ice-T‘s “Squeeze The Trigger” and Polaris At Noon‘s cover to MSTRKRFT – John Legend collabo hit, ”Heartbreaker”.
The first cover is from electro-pop duo DWNTWN covering one of my favorite DJs I’ve seen live, Calvin Harris. They really give the song an acoustic more natural feel with the guitar/bass and Jamie Leffler’s soft vocals accompany it all to form one of the best covers I’ve ever heard.

Next we go to electronic hip-hop duo King Fantastic who cover Ice-T. The cover from KF has electro/dubstep mixed with old school west coast hip-hop sounds to form a real banging hip-hop. Another must-listen from King Fantastic! DOWNLOAD
Lastly comes one of my newer favorite bands in Polaris At Noon. They cover my absolute favorite MSTRKRFT song, “Heartbreaker”. Polaris maintains the emotive piano, the vocals may not be as special as John Legend belting his voice yet Polaris’ “Heartbreaker” sounds more natural with the instrumentals turning it into an electronic rock song that you will dig.
