Jacuzzi, a new 18-year-old producer out of Honolulu, Hawaii, has come through with a huge remix of Santigold’s “Disparate Youth.” As a classically trained pianist, he has been honing in his production skills over the past seven years with intricate compositions in mind. Even with his brief career thus far, it’s clear that he has garnered the attention of top players in the industry as he has been consistently called in for listening sessions at Kanye West’s Yeezus studio in Hawaii – Avex Studios – for rappers like Pusha T. In his “Disparate Youth” remix, Jacuzzi manifests his inventive hip-hop sound while drawing from his classical influences for fresh style. Check out the remix as well as his collaboration with Mr. Carmack, “Trigger,” after the jump.
A few months ago I was introduced to the up and coming Australian producer, Thomas Jack. With an affinity for deep house accompanied by amazing saxophonist Adrian Symes and epic historical speeches, Thomas has made a name for himself recently with several free to download releases, most reaching the top of the Hypem charts and garnering support from DJs the world over. His most recent track “Symphony” is a showcase in why Thomas is definitely one to watch, check it and a few of our other favorites by him below!

What happens when you take the silky smooth, sun-drenched vibes of Goldroom and put them in the hands of the Bixel Boys? Well, you end up with a sexy, big-booty, bass heavy version sure to make your grandma shake her rump. Both these acts of two of the hottest coming out of LA currently, and this is a testament to why. There is a free download in exchange for a ‘like’ below. Get amongst it.
Nashville newcomers, Basecamp, burst onto the scene late this summer with the R&B infused single, “Emmanuel,” which saw widespread support from artists and press alike. Outlets across the board compared the profound, fervent vocals and glitchy, percussive production to that of SBTRKT and Sampha — rightly so as “Emmanuel,” and the other 3 tracks on the debut self-titled EP, scream out to be played live in every way.
As with any great release come great remix packages, and today, we’re happy to premiere our friend Them Jeans‘ deep, dancefloor-ready remix of the breakout single. He’s found a beautiful balance of utilizing the blissful vocals from the original while kicking up the tempo to a nice, grooving 124BPM. Give it a listen below.
Some songs get too big for their own good, and it takes someone injecting some fresh blood into it for you to step back and gain a new perspective on it. GDD™ homie Amtrac has done just that with Duke Dumont and A*M*E’s 100000% smash hit single ‘Need U (100%)’, and he’s provided a new shelf life for a song that you seemingly couldn’t get away from for the first half of 2013.
Reserved with its use of the signature vocals of the original, it’s more dancefloor-oriented, and a pumping little number that would fit nicely in any deep or tech house set. Available for free download via Amtrac’s SoundCloud (and above), I couldn’t be happier to have an excuse to play a rendition of this out once again!
Turbo Recordings artists, Clouds, have teamed up with our friends at The Well here in Los Angeles for a forward-thinking soundtrack to accompany the boutique store’s new Empyrean Layer campaign.

Have a listen below and check out the full campaign lookbook here.
Chicago’s Rogue Vogue returns with yet another groovy House cut; this time featuring Nashville vocalist Patrick Baker whose passionate delivery is reminiscent of the legendary Todd Edwards. This is the first time Rogue Vogue has collaborated on an original production with a vocalist — his past offerings have been mostly sample based — but the outcome is a success without question. It’s always nice to be able to sing along to a House track, and Rogue Vogue serves it up nicely with “Until The Dawn.” Download it here. √+
Fresh from the WeDidIt crew is a new freebie from the homie RL Grime. “Because of U” leans to the softer side of RL’s production, putting the massive, elbows up vibes on hold while incorporating a beautiful, feel good vocal and bright synth work. Have a listen below and download over on the dude’s website.
