It doesn’t seem like long ago the veiled producer Zhu surfaced on the web (4 months ago to be exact) and had the net buzzing about his “Moves Like Ms. Jackson” remix, but a lot has been accomplished since then. With four more originals added to his roster, including his recent hit (named Essential New Tune by Pete Tong) titled, “ Faded.” Now, though, the time has come for others to take on the fruits of his labor as official remixes begin to take shape on SoundCloud.

Dr. Fresch_Hella Good_Artwork-FINAL

Dr. Fresch is back with another feel good remix of a 90′s classic; this time he’s bringing summer along with a fresch new take on No Doubt‘s “Hella Good.” In his own words, I chose to remix Hella Good because it was one of my favorite pop songs growing up and no one has touched the track recently. The original song (as an entire piece) does not breathe summer, however, both the lyrics and vocal melody do. Because the vocals held this feel-good quality, I was able to reinterpret the song within the context of forward thinking electronic music; remaining true to the Dr. Fresch brand by giving the remix a tropical club makeover. I want my “Hella Good” remix to be a Summer anthem!

As the summer heats up the sounds are cooling down, with mellowed out versions of your favorite tunes popping up left and right, it’s pretty clear that the pool party season is upon us! Franne, a budding young producer from Germany, has hopped on NoNoNo’s classic, “Pumpin’ Blood,” and scaled it down to a vocal oriented piano house anthem to keep the blood chilled whilst coursing through your veins. Hop on his FB for a free download and throw the dude a follow on SoundCloud to stay tuned into to his productions.

Without Time

San Francisco’s MyKill teamed up recently with Keith Walker of The Holy Coast to produce the song “Without Time” and the outcome of this fine collab turned out to be magical.  ”Without Time” is filled with glowing synths and sexy saxophone…just the type of soothing ingredients that will instantly warm your body and mind and whisk you away to beaches filled with soft white sand & endless sunshine.

When Sam Smith sings, the ladies swoon, and the homies catch some feels. Mix in Berlin’s Fabich & Ferdinand Weber‘s production alias, JUUN, and the recipe is a feel good anthem to quench the summer thirst. This is the first sound to surface for the new duo that is sure to take the airwaves by storm as their catalogue develops. Collaborating with the UK Songbird for their first run at it speaks leagues to their production chops and only time will tell what the industry has in store for these two. For now, have a listen, throw ‘em a follow, and let their story unravel.

It takes a babe to blog us into festival season, sometimes.  Actress, model and music video muse, Victoria Geil, has this weekend covered for ya.  The anxious excitement of the drive out to this magical world on the barren edge of nothingness… the total and unapologetic poolside maxing as the sunshine and liquors flow… the punctuated moments of elation… the epic naps that tie it all together.

It’s all here, ladies and gentlemen: this is Coachella, as told by a babe.  If you’re a babe, you’ll love this.  If you love babes, you’ll need this.

This three mixtape series is conveniently tailored for use from the moment you begin your pilgrimage to the desert, to the moment you return to your respective basecamps upon the fateful completion of that final Sunday set.  Get it into you.
