San Diego-based singer/songwriter CODY LOVAAS has treaded into new territory with an energetic yet ambient remix with Australian EDM DJ GXNXVS for Cody’s single “Bodies," whose original version was on Billboard last month.

Listen to the remix here:

GXNXVS has risen to fame in the EDM world thanks to remixes of songs from artists such as Drank, Banks, and The Weeknd. When speaking of the remix, Cody said that "GXNXVS is a genius. What he did with my song, 'Bodies' is absolutely incredible. The first time I put this song on... instant vibes... and those vibes haven't gone away."

“Bodies” further showcases the maturation and growth of the 18-year-old rising star, who has been making a career for himself ever since being discovered by Jason Mraz at age 14. Since then, he has elevated his craft, touring with the likes of Mraz, Ziggy Marley, Switchfoot, Donovan Frankenreiter, and winning “Best New Artist” at the 2014 San Diego Music Awards.

Re-affirming his creativity and talent with such a unique blend of pop, indie, and R&B, it is becoming apparent that Lovaas is quickly ascending the music world as a bonafide hitmaker for years to come.

CAVALERA CONSPIRACY led by brothers and founding SEPULTURA members Max and Iggor Cavalera have unveiled first details about the release of their fourth studio album titled "Psychosis". The upcoming record is set for release on November 17th 2017 on Napalm Records and is produced by longtime friend Arthur Rizk in Phoenix, Arizona.

Max Cavalera in a recent interview with Metal Wani: "The album right now is finished. It was produced by Arthur Rizk, our friend and a great producer - an upcoming, underground producer. And he did a great job. I love the record. There are nine songs. We've got one song with Justin from GODFLESH - just a great NAILBOMB, GODFLESH, CAVALERA kind of song. The rest is all pure thrash madness. And we had it mastered a couple of days ago by Joel Grind from TOXIC HOLOCAUST; he mastered the album. And it's great, man. It's a beast of an album. I think a lot of people are are gonna be surprised when they hear it. It's, for me, the best of all the CAVALERA albums, my favorite one. And it's got the same intensity and energy of the old stuff like 'Beneath The Remains' and 'Arise'. So a lot of people are gonna be happy to hear that."

The brothers Max and Iggor Cavalera formed the legendarily trailblazing heavy metal band SEPULTURA as teenagers together in 1984. Across six studio albums the Brazilian punishers perfected the art of darkness and extreme music with thrash classics such as Beneath the Remains, Arise and Chaos AD, while exploring the underbelly of third world political issues and broadening the genre's horizons with an exploration of indigenous culture, culminating with the landmark Roots album in 1996. A decade after Max left SEPULTURA and meanwhile released seven successfull records with SOULFLY, the two brothers got back together in 2006 to form CAVALERA CONSPIRACY: A bold testament to the talent and power these two possess together. An invigorating mixture of speed and aggression, finest thrash power and the fiercest riffage.

Get ready for one of the most heaviest and hotly anticipated metal records of 2017, coming this November on Napalm Records, when the mighty CAVALERA CONSPIRACY will strike back this Fall!
