Remixes

Our GDD friend and familiar AMTRAC has been producing up a storm in 2013, remixing the likes of Ellie Goulding, Azari & III, and Bondax – while also releasing a ton of free originals on his soundcloud. Today, we celebrate the massive release of his remix for Wretch 32′s “Blackout” on Ministry Of Sound. The haunting vocals of Shakka are uplifted by deep disco house groove that rolls along til the bitter end… Listen to below, and go support the release!

Gentlemen Hall‘s “Sail Into The Sun” has not only infiltrated radio by being the backdrop to Samsung and Target commercials…its also become a bonafide Summer anthem. With cheery lyrics and a laid back attitude, it’s hard to not imagine bikinis and lakeside bonfires with this on in the background.

Three Chicago artists take a stab at the track on two separate remixes – Dani Deahl & Animale turn the track into a main room blitzer with Dutch-like synths that rise into a crescendo. It’s countered by blithe breakdowns with the plinking music-box sounds from the original and uplifting melodies, but it doesn’t stay silent for long. Expect to hear this one on the summer festival circuit, notably Dani’s performance @ EDC Chicago!

Chicago’s Sam Padrul capitalizes on the track’s breezy qualities and shifts it into a nu-disco jam. Replete with lush chords and dripping with funk, Padrul eschewed most of the supplied stems, opting to just use the vocals while writing all his own instrumentation. Catch a summer vibe on this one…

The artists over at Wedidit always know how to blend the perfect amount of Pop with some of the underground sounds that the scene is clamoring about. Although Groundislava might be a little late to the game with this whole Katy Perry remix game, he wastes no time jumping straight into a future pop rendition to shatter any predecessor. There is really no limit to what sounds Groundislava will play around with, as congo drums come in for some triplet accents, and arpeggio synths create a brilliant pop atmosphere.

VCO

GDD homies and Dim Mak-ians VCO have been very true-to-form studio rats as of late, churning out music left and right. Adding another pot to their busy stove, the duo have decided to launch a bi-weekly podcast more than aptly titled “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe”. In true VCO style the mix contains a variety of hollowed, dark techno sprinkled throughout with just a tinge of weirdness. By compiling a rather special selection of artists together, VCO provides an excellent showcase into their style which anyone who’s a fan of the darker side of the electronic spectrum will be more than pleased with and ready for more.

A-trak‘s Tuna Melt EP unloaded a stacked collab package at the end of last year, with the self titled EP single w/ Tommy Trash taking things to festival fathoms.

And wait, he’s giving it away for free? DAYUM SON, where’d you find this sandwich.

Kris Menace has a new album coming out entitled Features which includes collaborations with The Presets, Robert Owens, Simon Lord, The Glass and others.  The first single off the album is the track “Hide” featuring the always fabulous Miss Kittin.  ”Hide” delivers what you would expect from these two electronic music legends – lush, pulsating beats and soaring, sultry vocals.

Dirtying up things on the remix end are PWNDTIAC whose driving electro remix is certain to thrash every dance floor it touches.  With early buzz from Queen Annie Mac, this remix is already picking up some serious steam.  Do not miss out on this one.  The PWNDTIAC remix of “Hide” is out NOW via Compuphonic.

One of our favorite deep disco producers, Clancy, keeps the Halloween vibe going with his remix of the aptly titled “Vampire” by Beaumont.  Much like his previous and equally amazing remix of Little Dragon, Clancy’s remix of Beaumont is a noir-ish disco remix that will leave dance floors feeling sexy and deep.

Our man Josh Legg, aka Goldroom, is back with another fantastic remix, this time of Australian alterna-rockers Atlas Genius.  Goldroom’s remix of “Back Seat” is a piece of tropical new wave nostalgia that would have fit in well on MTV’s alternative show 120 Minutes circa the mid to late-80s.  Of course to be on the show, there would have to have been an accompanying video.  I’m picturing something reminiscent of “Rio” by Duran Duran: A yacht, the Caribbean, white suits and for absolutely no explainable reason, body-painted vixens.
