Sluggers have bounced onto the scene as one of the best new booty-tech producers out. I haven’t heard a bad track out of this Miami-based duo, and they continue the hot streak with today’s release. They set their sights on Aaron Smith and his massive tune “Dancin.” Unlike other remixes we’ve seen that have been very happy-dancey, Sluggers take a harder approach by incorporating a hard bass arrangement and cool tech elements. Stream it below and be sure to grab your copy on iTunes.
Whitney Fierce is a name that you’ll want to be remembering. A member and touring member of Hercules & Love Affair, she’s no stranger to high class musicianship. She’s taken her well-rounded musical influence to the decks for a solo effort, lead today by the first single off of the forthcoming “Broken Car Window” EP. ”The Night Air” lies on the darker side of the deep house spectrum, showcasing skillfully crafted percussion elements and a devious bass line. An accompanying remix from Eric Sharp lightens things up a bit, reworking the track with jackin’ house flair. The release is capped off with a launch party at Golden Box in Hollywood tonight, the 24th. She will be joined on the decks by Eric Sharp, Bystander, Give In and Londonbridge — RSVP here.
I’ve been sorting through the onslaught of Odesza remixes for the past 48, and I can say with confidence that this one has seriously struck a chord. Haywyre nails his take on the popular track “All We Need,” and reverts to the groovier side of his production spectrum. After two hard hitting tracks — Insight and Everchanging — it’s refreshing to see a little step back to a more funk/disco and dance-centric sound. Let these bounce inducing synths pave the way to the weekend, y’all. Oh, free download too!
Shèmce is an awesome, up-and-coming producer from Canada. His productions are rich and melodic, often incorporating a tropical twist. For his latest work, a remix of The Weeknd, he delivers a different side of his production portfolio. The track in question has a bit harder hitting, more club-suited style. Progressive synths create an uplifting atmosphere, balanced nicely by the dark vocals and tough bass line. Grab this one for free, and look out for more from Shèmce.
In lieu of an EP, our boy Wood Holly decided to drop three massive remixes all at once. Drawing from the decks of G-Eazy, O.T Genasis and Lil’ Wayne, he transforms these hip-hip tunes into booty shaking house bombs. Huge basslines and tech elements create a unique vibe that is consistent throughout each track. The toughest part about listening through this group of tracks is picking a favorite. Download all three and throw a big thank you to Wood Holly.

We did a little feature for Pat Lok‘s latest track “All In My Head” a few weeks back. The airy house vibes were strong, and the tune was really well received. Today, we got a chance to check out Howson’s Groove and their Garage-inspired edit. The London-based duo does a sick job with the original vocals, and kicked up the bass line a bit. This track is really well suited for the UK/Garage treatment, and is definitely a dance floor killer. Make sure to grab the whole remix pack here!
A few weeks back, we featured a huge tune called “Dismantled.” It’s producers, a duo by the name of Dimeuhduzen, are now back again with an entire EP. It features three tracks — “Blvck Entities, Leather Gloves, Secret Society” — that all carry a crushing techno vibe. These hectic tracks are also accompanied by a slew of remix support from Workerpoor, YB?, BS1, Freak Slaughter, Baroque, Automat, Beaumanoir, Tilaux and AUCAN. The result is one great big mega-pack of dance floor heat. Grab the whole thing on Beatport now!
Well Amtrac continues to release tracks at an alarming rate. His latest comes as an official remix for Swedish House by-product super duo Axwell Λ Ingrosso. Coming just 10 days after the release of “Truly,” this “Somthing New” remix offers a super cool, spacey vibe. A classic Amtrac bass line lays the foundation for the vocals to do what they do. Get stoked to see what else this guys whips up in the studio in the coming months.
Legendary East London producer Zinc is already making waves in 2015. His past couple releases have gone really well, and he follows them up nicely today with a remix of The Prodigy. The track in question is “Nasty,” and Zinc does well to infuse some huge warehouse vibes into the edit. A touch of acid peaks through the intricate percussion arrangements, making for a dance floor killer. Then, Spor adds his own flair, sticking to a more classic drum & bass arrangement. Never expect a dull moment in this track, as he conjures some of the most wicked bass and percussion sections you’ve heard this year. Stream them both below!
