Whether he’s dropping down the bpm on a broken beat/Hip Hop remix or he’s amping things up on a power House remix, Pat Lok always keeps his listeners on their toes. And here again that diversity shines through on his latest remix of the song “Trigger” by New York-by-way-of-Istanbul songwriter Sirma. Pat Lok’s exquisite remix is filled with plenty of deep bass & driving piano licks to get you moving on the dance floor but also filled with enough sensuality & elegance to get you lost out on that same dance floor. Time to get lost…

Something must be in the water over in Australia. The Sweat It Out! boys are always nailing it with not only the originals but incredible remix packages to boot. We’re proud to bring you the exclusive Dom Dolla remix of Benson’s new jam “Hot Mess.” The original (as the Sweat promo dictates): “It’s wonky. It’s swampy. And yet somehow, kinda poppy. And Lex Famous kills it on vox.” Dom Dolla takes the pop driven original and creates a jackin bass heavy trip thats fit for the club. His remix is our fav by far and we’re lucky enough to be rolling out the premiere… fans of Gorgon City, Motez and Duke Dumont will be all over this one.
Dom Dolla on

Last week, I embarked on a journey to Cabo San Lucas, and the timing couldn’t have been better as I had just received this vibey guest mix from our homie, SNBRN aka Kevin Chapman. With a slew of remixes recently topping the Hype Machine charts, this LA native is enjoying a breakout Summer, and he’s expected to continue on his ascent as he performs alongside other world-class artists at events like Splash House, while producing more crowd-favorite tracks. Now SNBRN has delivered a fantastic mix featuring a plethora of poolside jams that are to be enjoyed well-chilled, whether you’re in a place like Cabo or not.
The Future Bass movement has taken firm footing in AC Slater‘s Night Bass shenanigans, and for good reason, it thumps. Galloping bass lines accented by walloping bass synths permeate this playlist. Curated exclusively for the dawg’s at Boomrat, it might be a choice decision to peruse before cruising to Night Bass tomorrow night (scattered in these selections are tracks from this weeks performers).

UK duo Dusky have taken it one deeper with their latest production, “4T4″, and after listening to the song all I want to do is fly away to some jungle and dance naked in the trees and never come back from the mystical land of where “4T4″ took me.
The track is beautiful, lush and entrancing – with hypnotic pads, chilling vocals, and a knocking bassline. “4T4″ will appear on the forthcoming Anjunadeep mix cd due out on August 25th. Check the rest of the tracklisting after the jump.

LA Legend Thee Mike B launched his new house-ego Brillstein earlier this year on Jesse Rose’s Play It Down label with the heavy-hitting EP Back To Bed. Filled with six tracks that perfectly capture Brillstein’s style of big, punchy house drums and hip-hop / old-school influences, the Back To Bed EP allowed for a ton of room and direction from the remix front. After Play It Down’s previous remix package (Jesse Rose’s The Whole Twelve Remixes) delivered tracks from legends and newcomers alike from all over the globe, the Play It Down vs Brillstein remix pack comes fully stacked with an all Play It Down roster. Of course label-head Jesse Rose kicks things off with his remix of “Meelo My Bro”, recent PID champion Christian Nielsen ends it with his “Je T’Adore” remix, and a few more of the label’s rotation of producers (namely Dansson, ZDS, Prince Club, and Sqim) each put their own spin on Brillstein’s tracks. It’s a wonderful showcase of how Jesse Rose, as A&R for the label, can curate such a mix of house and techno stylings while still remaining very within the Play It Down umbrella. Inevitably members of the label know how to make a track to groove to and it’s present as much as ever with the new remix package.
As a bonus, Brillstein’s fellow LA friend and producer Matpat had his way with Brillstein’s “Environmental Produce” which they’ve given to you for your downloading and listening pleasure. You can stream all six remixes below, buy them on Beatport HERE and instantly download the Matpat remix by clicking HERE.
French producer, Valy Mo, has been cranking out some soulful House and Bass-infused tunes this year, and today, he’s released a top notch 3-track EP titled Tokyo Bright on Skrillex’s free-release label, Nest. Equipped with his signature, boundary-blurring style production, Tokyo Bright ventures from pitched-down vocal House to club anthem fair to a bass’d out closing track that stands apart yet inherently belongs. He’s content with keeping his sound wide open yet finds a way to keep all of his productions within the same realm of sound.
