Riding the acclaimed release of his new original ‘Chest’, Chris Lake keeps the reign of house rolling in 2015 with an explosive edit of Mark Ronson’s hit “Uptown Funk”. Lake keeps the soulfulness of the single, letting Bruno Mars energetic vocals bounce along fat percussion and a bubbling synth lead. The product is a dynamic club weapon fit to throw the dance floor into a frenzy!
Swept up in the bass house craze, Wax Motif & Gladiator got in the studio to make a beefed up version of Kid Ink & Dej Loaf’s hit “Be Real”. The outcome is a low end driven monster, teasing Dej Loaf’s vocal along a growling bassline and jackin lead. Originally planned to be a bootleg, Kid Ink’s camp loved the version so much it got picked up as an official remix, scheduled to drop at the end of this month on RCA. Listen below, and keep it locked for the release!
Our buddy Modusis back with arguably one of his tightest productions to date. Dark, dance floor driven tech house is the name of the game. His official remix for fellow Discovery Project winner MonsterGetDown has some really killer vibes. The vocal samples draw you into the production, and you’re repaid with a tough bass line and spot on jackin’ percussion. Modus has developed a theme here with these long 7+ minute productions, and never fails to keep me engaged the entire time. Grab this on Beatport now!
Swedens own Kasbois widely known for his massive melodic productions. His remixes span a variety of different artists and styles, while consistently offering a stunning result. Today, he released a remix of Vance Joy‘s popular track “Riptide,” and it’s huge. The original lyrics offer an organic build to a cinematic climax of bass and melodically sampled vocals. The future bass vibes keep a low profile, but peek out in the cracks to add a bit of depth to the production. Download it for free below, and stay tuned for more from Kasbo.
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, GiveIn and Londonbridge — RSVP here.
I’ve been sorting through the onslaught of Odeszaremixes for the past 48, and I can say with confidence that this one has seriously struck a chord. Haywyrenails 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 Hollydecided 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.
