It’s always great to see people using music as a platform for philanthropy or paying tribute to those who have passed away. Swiftly rising producer/DJ and key industry player, Sean Glass, has taken it upon himself to do both of those things with his outstanding new remix of Flight Facilities’ “Down To Earth.” Together with Glassnote Records, Future Classic, his own Win Music label, and Flight Facilities, Glass is dedicating this release to the Dan Fredinburg Foundation, which was created to help those affected by the devastating Nepal earthquake, and to celebrate the life of Dan Fredinburg, his good friend who tragically passed away while climbing Mt. Everest during the quake.
The remix itself is a warm, shimmering house cut driven by lush pads and a smooth, driving groove that serve as a perfect backdrop for the emotive vocals from the original. Its quality holds up to its great significance, and it’s an excellent contribution to a meaningful cause. Donate to the Dan Fredinburg Foundation here, listen to/download the remix above, and hear Sean Glass’ own words about the release:
“This is my favorite thing I’ve ever done. Flight Facilities are especially important to me, being my first signed artist. I look up to them as tastemakers and creators.
The remix release has been made even more special to me because of recent events. We lost a good friend whom I looked up to–Dan Fredinburg. This past weekend, we memorialized Dan in a series of very special ceremonies I am so grateful to have been a part of. It was my privilege to play this track out for the first time at the party Dan instructed us to have, should he not return.This week, there was another earthquake in Nepal.
They really need our help. We have launched the Dan Fredinburg Foundation and already raised $100k. It only made sense that while I put effort into spreading awareness for my remix, I use that energy to help the causes that are really occupying my mind and heart–rebuilding Nepal and #LiveDan.”

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from TÂCHES, but it seems like it’s for good reason. The mystery producer, who is known for his irresistible deep house grooves and iconic, anonymous branding, has come through with his first release in a few months. His latest, “Prints of Whales” featuring PB Kaya, displays TÂCHES’ refined sound, fusing dynamic synth work with edited vocal cuts and warm chords over relaxed, yet driving rhythms for a clubby gem. Watch out for TÂCHES making his way to the U.S. for a run of gigs in June and be sure to pick up this free download.
Doesn’t get more LA than a fluid and bouncy remix of a Rihanna single from a yet-to-be-known producer. So here we are, ready to be blasted from car stereos with the windows down. Little known about Young Prince as of yet, other than he’s purposefully anonymous and residing somewhere in the depths of Los Angeles county. Rihanna’s single is booming – a stomping, in-your-face announcement rather fitting as a lead single for a new album, especially our darling bold RiRi. Somehow, Young Prince strips things to a shinier place, literally flooding the production with dripping synths. Normally something so esoteric isn’t necessarily assertive, yet Young Prince sonically delivers something that commands your ears and the room, stripping none of the booming energy from the original whilst shifting the mood and aesthetic to an entirely different place.
Intrigued to see what’s next from this mystery producer, I imagine it’s going to be good if you kick off with an official Rihanna remix….

One of LA’s finest, Justin Jay, has been on an upward trajectory for quite some time now, but it seems like things are really taking off. With a Coachella debut at The Do LaB, his Momentum EP on Pets Recordings, an upcoming tour in Australia, and more this year, this dirtybird-affiliated young gun has had a last semester of college that many would die for. Back in March, Justin Jay also threw it down at Desert Hearts on Sunday afternoon of the festival, after a couple of wild nights in Vegas with his fraternity. Many people that were in attendance have been buzzing about his set, and this will come as no surprise once you listen to the 2.5 hours of house-fueled grooves, including several unreleased tracks of his own, a few from his dirtybird homies, and other gems like Âme’s private edit of Paul Simon’s “Diamonds.” Enjoy above and grab the free download here.
