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!

Possibly the greatest love story of 2014 detailed O.T. Genasis and his love for the coco. Needless to say, there wasn’t a nightclub in the world that hasn’t this track or any of it’s adaptations. Thankfully for us, Aussie legends Torren Foot and Hey Sam whipped up an edit thats more suited for the dancefloor. The original arrangement leads up to a quick BPM switch and a head pounding bass line. These guys are doing g-house like no one else right now, so make sure to check out both of their extensive Soundcloud reserves for more big tunes. Oh, and say thanks for a free download.

London based production trio Disciples had one of the biggest records of 2014 on their hands with “They Don’t Know.” It’s jumpy bassline and smooth vocals found their way into DJ sets far and wide, and really hooked a lot of folks. There haven’t really been too many notable remixes of the tune until Dirtybird dude Justin Jay went and made this magic. Practically unrecognizable from the original track, this remix features a darker side, with eerily pitched vocal samples and plucking synth work. Stream this heater below via it’s Annie Mac premiere.

Los Angeles DJ/producer duo Bixel Boys had one of the biggest come-ups in 2014. Their #FREELIFE campaign stamped their ideology and branding on the foreheads of music and fashion junkies alike. Not to mention, their tunes are next level. Their first release of 2015 comes in the form of an official remix for Le Youth and his track “Real.” The boys take the nu-disco laced tune and flip it into a faster paced, more futuristic house heater. If you’re digging this, pre-order it now and show them some love.

New York based Disco Fries had a huge hit on their hands with “The Light” featuring Niko The Kid. This week, they released a barrage of remixes from a panel of some big names across the production spectrum. This remix pack truly gives the listener a little bit of everything, including deep house work from MANIK, a big prog-house edit from Tommie Sunshine & Halfway House, and a tough bounce remix from Bounce Inc. This whole collection really goes to show how well the original tune lends itself across genres, and you can stream and pick them all up Beatport. Enjoy!
Let’s start off with Brenmar. This guy made some huge noise in 2014 with his tunes, including three extremely well-received remixes of Rick Ross, Beyonce and Route 94. His style is difficult to pinpoint, but obviously draws inspiration from jersey, hip-hop, and a handful of other bass music genres. For his take on Theophilus London, he decided to slow things down a touch, letting the original track shine in a different light. Look out for his forthcoming “Award” EP set to be released later this month on Fool’s Gold Records.
Enter Sliink & Nadus, two of the most outspoken leaders of the jersey movement, which you can explore further yourself in a recent Vice documentary on genre. These guys have both become very well known in their own regards for their jersey/bass production prowess, and it was about time that they tag-teamed a track. They don’t disappoint, as they transform Theophilus London’s track into rough, tough dancefloor bomb. Enjoy!

Up-and-comer Loosid has been peaking a fair amount of the interest with only a handful of releases over 10 days. Another anonymous figure, I’m beginning to see a theme here. Regardless of the mysterious details surrounding the producer, the project is impressive, crossing over genres effortlessly and skillfully. The previous releases include trap, house, and future house, stepping into a new arena today with this John Mayer remix. Without further ado, enjoy this glitchy-yet-melodic take on the classic jam.
