MP3.com and RCRD LBL - two like-minded online music institutions - have joined forces bring you a playlist of some of today's hottest music. Check out our brand new playlist mixer and listen to new music by [mp3com-artist]Katy B[/mp3com-artist], [mp3com-artist]Mark Ronson & the Business Intl.[/mp3com-artist], [mp3com-artist]Chromeo[/mp3com-artist], [mp3com-artist]Class Actress[/mp3com-artist], [mp3com-artist]The Field[/mp3com-artist] and others! For this week's RCRD LBL Essentials mix we have a compilation of artists who are on the forefront of the music scene, pushing their genres in new, creative directions.  UK producer and DJ [mp3com-artist]Mark Ronson[/mp3com-artist]'s new project [mp3com-artist]Mark Ronson & the Business Intl.[/mp3com-artist] is turning heads with its forward thinking production. Their single "Record Collection 2012" plays like an amalgam of everything out there that's hot right now - mixing electronic beats, pop vocals and even a hip hop verse thrown in for good measure. [rcrd-lbl]http://rcrdlbl.com/widgets2.0/core/?m=show_widget&w=MP3[/rcrd-lbl] [mp3com-artist]Chromeo[/mp3com-artist]'s tunes are irresistibly on point with their '80s pastiche, but what really carries them is Dave 1 and P Thugg's keen sense of a good melody and songcraft.  They might catch your ear with their flamboyant sax solos and vocorders, but after a few spins what keeps you interested is that these are actually great songs in their own right. [mp3com-artist]Gigamesh[/mp3com-artist]'s remix of [mp3com-artist]Katy B[/mp3com-artist]'s smash hit "Lights On" flexes the track's inherent dancefloor potential, adding a pulsing beat and cranking the synths up and extra notch to get bodies moving.  Other electronic tracks from [mp3com-artist]Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs[/mp3com-artist], [mp3com-artist]The Juan Maclean[/mp3com-artist], [mp3com-artist]The Field[/mp3com-artist] and [mp3com-artist]Little Dragon[/mp3com-artist] will have you set for your weekend's party playlist. Rounding things out nicely are rising Brooklyn pop star [mp3com-artist]Class Actress[/mp3com-artist][mp3com-artist][/mp3com-artist]'s electro pop gem "Weekend" and a couple of nice folk songs from [mp3com-artist]Akron/ Family[/mp3com-artist] and [mp3com-artist]Rev. Lonnie Farris[/mp3com-artist]. So without further ado, we present you the MP3.com and RCRD LBL Essentials mix.  Give it a whirl and let us know what you think in the comments!
