CRWNS, a fresh 21-year-old producer/DJ, seems to be jumpstarting his ascent up the ranks of dance music’s elite. With two previous releases to his name, and now this latest offering, he’s cultivating his own sound within the low-end-focused sphere, and many are picking up on the authentic vibes that he always delivers. On his remix of Major Lazer & DJ Snake’s “Lean On,” CRWNS supports MØ’s vocals with a flurry of shimmering synths, which are complimented by arpeggiated melodies and vocal edits that help drive the mid-tempo rhythm. Download CRWNS’ remix here, and watch out for more from the young talent.
Ever since Louis Futon won me over at Coachella earlier this year, I’ve been keeping an eye on him. In the midst of several Gallant remixes, he surfaced with his own take on “Weight In Gold,” and he executed his rendition to perfection. On his remix, Louis Futon uses creative interplay between the song’s main elements and Gallant’s soulful vocals for a unique, R&B-tinged number that’s still getting love after hundreds of thousands of plays. Enjoy above and stay tuned for more outstanding tunes from Louis Futon.
This year, Sweden’s Kasbo has kept busy with a grip of new releases, including a smash remix of Vance Joy’s “Riptide.” Now Kasbo brings us another tune, and it happens to be an original that’s been dubbed “Again.” On the track, he blends piano chords with shimmering pads and melody-rich synth leads on top of a mid-tempo groove. Listen above and pick it up on iTunes.
Someone or something has been making a disturbance in the neighborhood… a STRANGER. In only the past few months, this mysterious producer has criminalized dance music as we know it, churning out severely low end driven house with elements of garage, bassline, breaks, fidget and ghetto tech. We finally caught the culprit, and sentenced him to the GDD™ Guest Mix, which he has delivered to us in the form of an hour packed with new originals and remixes and from himself and friends alike. Keep an out for Stranger, because you don’t know if he’s watching you.

Earlier this year, Detroit’s saxophone wielding, electro-soul ambassador, GRiZ, dropped one of his biggest tunes yet, “For the Love” featuring Talib Kweli, and over the course of 4 months, it amassed over 1 million plays. With its success, it’s no surprise that a fresh remix has surfaced, and it happens to be from the ODESZA-endorsed artist, Big Wild. This rising talent has given “For the Love” his own California flavor with a re-worked groove and edited elements from the original, as well as melodic percussion, and other new instrumental accents. Enjoy the remix and see where you can catch GRiZ on tour here.
Life’s a bitch and then you die. The haunting lyrics of Nas on his recent single have been echoed through the years of hip-hop. Dallas newcomer Zander has given us the reason to live up the motto in his low-end driven house flip, with a deep wobble, stabbing bassline and a hint of breaks for good measure. Fans of Jack Beats, Amine Edge & Dance and Tchami will be all over this one. Grab it below for FREE DOWNLOAD!
The Red Baron is an up-and-coming producer out of San Diego, and he’s been enlisted for an official remix for Bahari. The track is “Wild Ones,” and Baron encorporates a wild melody into the mix. Smooth vocals and dreamy percussive elements lead you up cool bass-heavy section. With violin and mandolin personally sampled in the track, this guy really aimed to show his diverse handle on sound. Enjoy this, the latest from The Red Baron.
We are all just strangers in the night.
The words given from the out-of-nowhere producer known as Stranger, who within a month has unloaded 4 original tracks along with remixes for Jack Ü and Must Die! for the OWSLA imprint. The sound of Stranger is low end driven house, with influences of breaks, garage, and bassline that go from zero to party real quick. On top of that, his new collaboration w/ Jamie Prado landed a world premiere on Tiesto’s club life podcast, taking things into deeper territory. Be on the lookout for Stranger, as I see massive moves to be made later this year…. grab his 4-track EP below for FREE download.
