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!
Over the past month since it’s release, we’ve seen some awesome remix work done for Indian Summer‘s latest “Loveweights.” None of which, in our opinion, have received such unique and hard hitting alterations as this, an official remix from Ape Drums. Fresh off his tour with Bro Safari, Craze & CRNKN, this dude has been rising through the ranks of bass music at a crazy pace with signature man-bun still intact. A jungle-inspired percussion selection and stunning vocal sampling make this one a dance floor killer — stream it below!

Nordrhein-Westfalen is the place that the Grandbrothers call home, and it sounds every bit as obscure as the music that they make. Focused primarily on instrumental driven compositions, these two have stumbled upon a sound to call their own. A sound that FILM (Future Is Listening Music) Records in Berlin has enjoyed enough to help the duo release their debut 12 track LP, Dilation. Unclassifiable – yet full of class, this elegant arrangement exudes a flair for life with syncopated minimalist percussive loops complete with rim shots and well placed kicks as layers of piano and background noise swell with lead strings. It’s truly something else.. have a listen.
All hail the the dark lord of Gore-Tex and techno. The mind behind Healthgoth is back again with the third installment of his guest mix series.

Four-to-the-floor tech beats line this one from start to finish, and could serve as some nice background noise to break in a new pair of black-on-black Air Max 90s. Enjoy the mix along with free download, and keep your eye out for more from Healthgoth.

Tough Love has been on a tear with huge string of releases. Their bouncy house sound is infectious to say the least, and their latest tune continues the trend. Premiered with Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1, “So Freakin’ Tight” is a certified dance floor destroyer. The ode-to-90s-R&B vocals jump double dutch with the steel drum and bass arrangements, and actually align to form a really nicely unified track. This UK duo shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon — you can stream and pre-order the track below in the wake of it’s world release on March 16.
