Check out new releases from Flo Rida, Dave Gahan, and Daniel Lanois.

Discovering new talent is often a daunting task; however, when the formula is complete, and all parts synergetic, the sky is the limit. With a noted machine behind him, coupled with his originality, Flo Rida has captured the attention of many while simultaneously making a significant impact early in the game with his Atlantic records debut, Mail on Sunday. Of which the first single “Low,” featuring T-Pain, and produced by Timbaland (Justin Timberlake, Madonna, Missy Elliot), has been on the Billboard Top Hot 100 for 20 weeks, and peaked at #1.

Dave Gahan's 2007 release “Hourglass” will undergo the supreme remix treatment with a brand new collection of tweaked songs from the album. Hourglass-Remixes will feature updates on the original tracks and some b-sides by such folks as Juan Maclean, Booka Shade, Kap10Kurt, Maps, T. Raumschmiere, Digitalism, Onur Ozer and Sebastien Leger. The collection will mark the first time many of these versions have been released physically in the United States; numerous selections that have been available only as imports until now.

Here is What Is, the remarkable sixth solo album from Daniel Lanois, strikes a chord for independence as the first major release on his own Red Floor Records. An acclaimed singer/songwriter/producer known for producing some of the greatest albums of the last two decades (U2, Bob Dylan, Brian Eno, Peter Gabriel, Emmylou Harris, The Neville Brothers, to name a few), Daniel Lanois has created an album full of viscerally powerful and beautiful new tracks that rank amongst his best.
