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.

Viceroy’s at it again, sticking to his “Summertime, All the Time” mantra on his brand new remix of Washington, DC indie electronic band Brett. Viceroy takes the funky feel of the original and splashes it with his trademark summer colors. Sunny piano, sweet, bouncy lyrics and frolicking disco vibes make Brett + Viceroy the perfect fit to keep those dark days full of light.
Out October 30th on iTunes!
Just looking at this photo of Jessie Ware & Joe Goddard (Hot Chip/The 2 Bears) in a studio is enough to get any music lover excited. The two brilliant artists were captured in the studio together working on his remix of her track “Night Light”. As utterly fantastic as the finished product is (a stunning, dancefloor storming, deep electro remix), the video of Miss Ware & Mr. Goddard in the studio is equally amazing to watch. Sit back and enjoy the video below as you catch a rare glimpse of an artist and remixer coming together to share ideas on a remix. Then, after the video, stand up and dance.
When it comes to remixes, Duke Dumont has a knack for putting his own stamp on a track and turning it into something fresh and original. He’s often called a producer’s producer and rightfully so. As expressed in a recent interview with The Line of Best Fit, he’s very respectful when it comes to the process and art of music production. The diversity of artists he has remixed (Santigold, Metronomy, ZZT, Bonobo, Mystery Jets) is a testament to his unique style and his respect for all genres of music. His latest gem of a remix is for the ethereal song “Your Drums, Your Love” by AlunaGeorge. It’s a beautifully crafted remix and the combination of AlunaGeorge and Duke Dumont is RED RED HOT.
The “Your Drums, Your Love” EP is out October 15th [Pre-order HERE]
Last week I posted on the new single from mystery group, letthemusicplay, and today they’ve made producer extraordinaire, Todd Edwards‘, remix available for stream. House House and more House. With some sexy vocals.
Alex Metric continues to exemplify his Midas touch this week with a stream of his latest remix for the lovely Ellie Goulding. “Anything Could Happen” is the first single from Goulding’s forthcoming album, Halcyon, and London-based Alex Metric has gone to work on the Poppy, lighthearted original in a big way — adding in a Kavinsky-esque sound fit for your Testarossa. Release date TBA for this bad boy.
After last year’s CHAIND Vol.1, witch house wizards White Ring , proved to become the ambassadors of the occult ghetto grave-rave tunes. This week they gave away their Waka Flocka ‘Murda‘ remix as a preview of their upcoming tape CHAIND Vol.2. Filled with machine guns, horror synths & stuttering demonic raps, White Ring smothered the life out of the original… reassuring this new mixtape will be more than satisfying for all you hooligan ravers out there.

Round two of Science Sundays is already upon us and what better chemical to bring into the mix than the first one I put in my body this morning? Don’t get any of the wrong ideas guys… just caffeine. There are few things I delight in more (slash find absolutely necessary to have in my life every day) than a joyous cup of coffee, and that in large part is due to its caffeine content. Caffeine, for all you terminology nerds, is a xanthine alkaloid that acts as a acetylcholinesterase inhibitor. OK, so that basically means it’s a stimulant. It perks you up, helps keep you clear and focused, and if you’re anything like me after three cappuccinos, can make you jittery and energetic.
So there we have it. Below are a few songs I enjoy, ones that I find help me wake up in the morning, put my head in a nice and clear space, keep me tapping my feet in my desk chair, and ward off any yawns or feelings of exhaustion of the moment. So if you’re feeling a little groggy on Monday morning, or start slowing down at work in the afternoon, fill up your favorite mug and press play. I promise you’ll be right as rain in no time.
