Toronto’s Poupon was called upon to remix the theme song from the new computer animated film Rio 2. The remix EP just dropped this week on Atlantic records, and the prospect of doing a remix for a big label/children’s movie might seem a bit daunting, but Poupon stayed true to his guns and smashed it with sophisticated vocal chops, warm keys and classy low-end to keep it knocking. You can pick up the release on Beatport or iTunes.

You’ve all heard it, and like it or not, this song is everywhere. I happen to enjoy the happy hit from the NYC-based American Indie Poppers, fun., and today our good pal, BetaTraxx, has released his hard-hitting remix of ‘We Are Young’ on Big Beat Records. We’re happy to hear that BetaTraxx is going to have a busy summer, with another remix coming out on Big Beat on May 15th, an EP coming out sometime in June, and of course, his massive Electric Daisy Carnival debut in Vegas next month. Big ups to ya bud!
