Our LA familiars Graff recently got the call to remix Norwegian Lindstrom and delivered a brilliant nu-disco spirited version of “Home Tonight” – they we’re delighted not only because of the vibe but the opportunity to rep home turf! Here’s what they had to say…
Antone and I were asked to do an official remix for Lindstrom and it’s coming out on his remix package this spring. We were super thrilled as this is right up our alley. It’s also cool for our little LA scene as those Scandavians (terje, lindstrom, prins thomas) have always sort of kept it pretty european… this is a rare instance of getting USA involved nonetheless some LA bros like us
Also check out their new 100 Minutes In A Hot Air Balloon mix, packed with jams to keep your spring sprung.

Every element and feeling we’ve grown to be extremely fond of by the works of Parisian legend, Zimmer, have found a way to collectively coexist in his newest remix for Brooke Fraser, entitled ‘Kings & Queens‘. In my opinion, this is his best production to date, it’s been on repeat, and keeps getting more infectious! He was able to transform Brooke’s voice into a spacey, yet majestic tone that seems to echo in our souls while longing for something of a future’s past. You can expect Baptiste’s signature horizontal disco touch, however slowed down a bit, with a deeper futuristic sound. Turn on & float away.
We’re excited to have Zimmer moving to LA in January just short of 2 months to write an All-New EP! See you soon bud!
[Bonus]: His latest prior work was for Aussie Psychedelic pop outfit Wunder Wunder (of Miami Horror descent), entitled ‘Midnight Hours‘ is also something quite special, and shouldn’t go missed. Wash it down as dessert.
American Horror Story fans rejoice as you listen to SNBRN’s inventive take on Melanie Martinez’s eerie hit “Carousel.” SNBRN displays a darker side of his infectious brand by effortlessly uniting theatrical instrumentation with a thumping deep bassline. This club-ready official remix is sure to keep you grooving all the way through the night.
“Been a huge fan of American Horror Story, so when I got asked to remix Carousel I couldn’t resist. With dark vibes and a deep baseline I wanted to take this remix to the grave and back. Hope you guys enjoy this tune because there’s no turning back now.” – SNBRN

Funkmaster, Ghosts of Venice, has taken on Mystery Skulls‘ dark synth jam, “Paralyzed,” for a remix release on Warner Bros Records — transforming the shadowy, vocal-driven original into a sunlit spot flush with twangy guitar riffs and 80s-inspired synth work. The new look from Ghosts of Venice highlights his ability to see elements of a song that mesh well with his individual style (in this case it’s Mystery Skulls’ glossy vocals) while incorporating a new repertoire of components that launch “Paralyzed” into an entirely new realm of dance music.
Listen first below and pick up the remix package out on WBR tomorrow.
