Thomaas Banks is a name you may have never heard before. However, you’ve probably heard his music, as he is one half of the duo Psychmagik. Earlier this month he began a solo project under his own name, and has started off with a heater. Called upon by Alex Metric & Amtrac to remix one of his latest tunes, Thomaas brings a deep, dark tech twinge to the table. His remix is definitely one of the most unique off of the remix pack, and I can’t wait to see what he releases next. Stream it now!
Following up two smashing remixes of Tame Impala and Louis the Child, we’ve got another one from Rambo V. The LA-based DJ/producer has been experimenting with a variety of sounds over the past year, and he’s landed an official remix for Pat Lok to continue the trend. Balearic vibes run consistantly through the majority of his productions, and this track certainly isn’t lacking them. Bouncy bass and creative vocal stabs make this one suitable for any dance floor. Download it now.
Prince Fox has been all over radars lately. A major label signing, massive tour, and great tunes to go along with it. Things are boding well for the young producer in 2016, and he’s kicking things off with a remix for Felix Jaehn. He turns the tropical tune into a more futuristic pop edition, using some punchy synths and percussion. The track really translates nicely from Prince Fox’s point of view, bringing something new to your ears. Grab the tune now!
On Planets have brought the serious vibes with their take on “OMG.” Uptempo percussive elements set the tone for the super smooth track. Really light feels considering the depth and darkness of the original vocals from the MXMS tune. A warm bassline pads your way through the four-minute production, with plucking chords sprinkled throughout. Safe to say I’m digging my first wind of On Planets and I’ll be keen to hear more!
Mikey Lion and Sabo have just released their first studio collaboration together. Featuring two original tracks, ‘Into The Jungle’ and ‘Sally’, as well as remixes by Lonely Boy and Joyce Muniz, Into The Jungle puts deep and complex tribalistic drum patterns at the forefront of the mix, driving a unique tech-house sound that both Mikey and Sabo are known to champion. Really digging these strong vibes from the Desert Hearts crew? You’re in luck; the boys have just released a massive winter touring schedule for their City Hearts party. Check out the tour dates after the jump!
The Aussie house gangster Hey Sam is back at it with a dangerous club flip of Ayo Alex’s new single Want it featuring Juicy Jay and we were all over it before we even got the nod on this premiere… here’s what the young gun had to say about it:
“AYO Alex hit me up to do this remix and I jumped on it straight away as I’m a big fan of his original version but it’s a little too heavy for my DJ sets. My version is more stripped back, bassline driven and I’ve found it has plenty of impact in the clurrrbbb.. Also stoked that Uprise Music have let me release this for free download.”
Myself and the GottaDanceDirty crew had a chance to check out RÜFÜS as they rolled through Los Angeles on tour promoting their forthcoming album. One of the bigger singles they have released in preparation of its release is “Like An Animal.” The emotional lyrics are sure to resonate with anyone with ears, but they seemed to resonate a bit more with Dom Dolla, who has made the track his own. A brutally smooth bassline brings this indie-twinged tune to the late night dance floor in a big way. Stream the tune below exclusively at GDD and show both RÜFÜS and Dom Dolla their due love.
LA-based Ryan Collins has teamed up with Bijou for a super sleek ghetto tech jam. “Hood Crazy” rolls in with tough high hats a echoing samples, preluding the crushing sound to come. Samples from Tech N9ne, 2 Chainz and B.o.B. keep things interesting while that hard bass line keeps things tech. This is a high energy tune that’ll reach a large demographic. Play it loud at a dancefloor near you .
Now we’ve got a heater of a remix from young gun Wheathen out of Chicago. He’s taking on Midnight to Monaco’s “Suicide,” and the result is pretty epic. Plucky synths roll through the bass-heavy drops and really bring that trap hands x-factor. The vox are pitched down and floated over the rest of the composition for a nice ghostly effect. Really solid remix from Whethen, the youngest person to release a remix with Future Classic to date. Enjoy!
Pretty bold move to try to take on one of the hottest tracks on planet earth, but EVALYN has succeeded in bringing something new to The Weeknd‘s slow-burner-yet-banger “The Hills.” Pseudo-mashed with Kavinksy’s “Nightcall,” this track has a little bit of something for everyone. Stunning vocals, great production value from Louis Vivet, what more could you need. Stream the track here and make sure to jump on that free download.
