I’ve been a big believer in LA’s own Drezo for quite some time now. For many, it seems like this guy came out of the woodwork with that huge “A Milli” edit. Nay! Homeboy has been slinging techno heaters since I was in a Fraternity (thats a long time). Drezo has his own very unique spin on the techno/house marriage. Some of the harder bass sequences you’ll hear dance around stunning production. His latest is a remix of Vice’s track “Find A Way,” and you’ll have to find a way to keep your speakers from exploding when you jam to this one. Think underground. Like waaay underground. Check out the track below and grab support Drezo by grabbing it on iTunes.
It’s no surprise that we were big fans of Hot Chip’s latest album. That boy was a masterpiece. One of the danciest tracks from the record is “Need You Now,” a beautiful fusion of vocals and hauntingly sampled house music. Moonlight Matters just went and made a huge “piano warehouse” remix, and I can’t wait to play this one for all my friends. Stream this one pronto!
“When i first heard “Need You Now” i instantly felt a strong connection with the track, it’s one of those tracks that just grabs your attention and puts you in a distinctive and nostalgic mood,” says Sebastiaan Vandevoorde, better known as Moonlight Matters and one half of house duo Arches.
The original, the second release from Hot Chip’s most recent album Why Make Sense? is a brooding house tune with soulful vocals dripping in and out amidst a sparse, but engrossing musical atmosphere.
“Alex’s magical vocals tones never cease to amaze and that Sinnamon vocal sample is just the icing on the cake of what seems to be the perfect blend. “I already had a clear picture in mind of what I’d do to the track when the Hot Chip boys gave me the opportunity to remix this piece of gold,” says Sebastiaan. “I was a kid in a candy store. I wanted to keep the original mood of the track in tact yet make a very personal reinterpretation upping the energy and the diva factor.”
Get ready for a weird one from Astronomar & AiNSLEE. This one is catered for 4am club nights, a remix of Wongo’s legendary tune, “Hollywood.” Do you eat cous cous out of Richard Gere’s tupperware? Probably not, but you are listinging to one of the hottest tracks of the week. The Main Course head honcho Astronomar picked a swell remix-mate to help tackle this tune, as this one is knocking the speakers off my desk. Do yourself a favor and rinse this one at your next function.
“Who’s got complicated handshakes with Hanson? Wongo does. Who sits courtside eating schnitzel? Wongo again. Who has a magician on retainer? That’d be Wongo. And who eats couscous out of Richard Gere’s tupperware container? You got it. WONGO
Okay so maybe none of that is true, but it is all taken from the ridiculously fun new tune from Wongo ft. Nacho Pop; a single that pokes fun at the infamous city of angels in the most spectacular way.
After one listen to Hollywood ft. Nacho Pop, you’ll soon realise that this young talent doesn’t need to make up facts at all.
So let’s reset.
Who’s been asked to officially remix both Beyonce & Azealia Banks. Wongo has. Who’s released on labels like Dim Mak and Main Course. Wongo again. Who’s had their music supported by the likes of Peking Duk, What So Not, and Claude VonStroke? That’d be Wongo. And who is without a doubt one of Sweat It Out’s hottest up and comers? You got it. WONGO”
