Goldroom is releasing a new track next week titled “Till Sunrise” and prior to its release, he is experimenting with a little project he likes to call The Premix. Here are Josh’s own words in regards to his experiment:
“Basically, you can download the vocal stem on Soundcloud and make your own remix before the song is even out. The premix is an experiment. Remixes are a big part of the creative world I live in, and it has always been important to me to give up-and-coming producers the chance to work with my songs unencumbered.”
We love the idea of The Premix. Any chance to inject new life into the release process that also gives up & coming producers a chance to shine is something we’re on board with. Fresh off the premix train is MyKill, our guy in SF who we love here at GDD. One of the main reasons we love him: the dude’s not afraid to throw down some sax! The smokey vocals on “Till Sunrise” (courtesy of Mammals) alongside some feel good sax make MyKill’s remix one smooth ride.
Also, be sure to check out MyKill’s latest orginal track, “Moonlight” (produced along with Walker):
San Francisco’s MyKill teamed up recently with Keith Walker of The Holy Coast to produce the song “Without Time” and the outcome of this fine collab turned out to be magical. ”Without Time” is filled with glowing synths and sexy saxophone…just the type of soothing ingredients that will instantly warm your body and mind and whisk you away to beaches filled with soft white sand & endless sunshine.

As we make the transition from Summer to Fall, we’ve got a remix today which features two artists who befittingly capture the sound & feel of the seasonal transition. It’s Southern California versus Northern California. It’s sunshine versus haze. It’s the bright, bouncy feel of Summer transitioning into the dusky, seductive feel of Fall. It’s LA’s Goldroom getting the remix treatment from SF’s MyKill on the glorious track “Embrace”. It’s the best of both worlds on this deep, seductive yet still sunny remix. It’s the one time of the year when the guy in the beanie wearing a t-shirt & shorts doesn’t actually look too ridiculous…this track’s for you, bud.
It’s Thursday, which means another 10 free tracks to put in your pocket from your friends here at GDD™. This week, aRod and I have gathered a diverse selection for you with originals, remixes, and edits all making an appearance.

Catchy does not even begin to describe how addicting this new remix is by San Francisco’s MyKill. MyKill’s remix of “All The Sweetness” by fellow Bay Area artist 8th Grader, is everything you could want in an indie dance track. It’s piano pop house mixed with soulful R n’B vocals, giving the song a playful, sweet and sexy sound that’ll set the mood just right for some guaranteed flirty/dirty fun – just in time for Valentine’s Day. Now get your ass off Tinder & OK Cupid and get out there and woo someone! You can start by playing them MyKill’s remix of “All The Sweetness”. It’s a sure thing.
San Francisco’s MyKill has a real knack for producing quality indie dance remixes. MyKill’s latest remix is for the Phoenix, AZ band The Holy Coast. The song is called “Make Room”, a chilled out acoustic number filled with folky flair and sweet, tender vocals. Check out the lovely original HERE.
MyKill’s remix of “Make Room” gives the original track a laid back, indie disco touch that’ll have you floating through the sky on a bed of clouds. Sit back, listen and drift away…
After the success of Midi Matilda and MyKill’s first remix collaboration (on the track “Day Dreams”), both parties have decided to have another go at it. And once again, the outcome does not disappoint. The heavy guitar & drums in the original take a back seat on MyKill’s more synth driven remix and the result is a triumph. This track will surely be on repeat throughout the rest of the Summer.
Midi Matilda and MyKill are carrying on an avant-pop/indie/new wave tradition in San Francisco that dates all the way back to the late 70s with Tuxedomoon. If you like dreamy new wave mixed in with your indie dance, then look no further: Midi Matilda + MyKill have the perfect concoctions for you.
I must say, it’s been quite a treat to have San Francisco’s MyKill burst onto the scene the way he has in 2012. Not too many producers are punching out proper indie dance remixes like MyKill has been doing. First it was his remix of Midi Matilda, a remix that has appeared in countless mixtapes from Spring thru Summer (and still going). Next up was his remix for Fun., one of the most remixed songs of 2012, yet the MyKill remix stood above them all. MyKill’s latest remix is another winning effort. His remix of “Peak Performance” by Young Digerati takes the already fantastic original and adds some disco + new wave flair. The end result is another dazzler perfect for a Summer drive down PCH.
Don’t act like you don’t enjoy the happy vibes of the indie pop anthem “We Are Young” by Fun. It’s been everywhere these past few months but it’s hard not to love. We posted Betatraxx’s massive remix the other day and today we are showcasing the Party Ben and MyKill remix. The Party Ben and MyKill remix of “We Are Young” adds a moody + edgy space disco vibe to the poppier original that is to die for. Fantastic work all around, gents.
Your Spring to Summer music guide is here. Follow this mix from Spring all the way into Summer as you lay poolside, frolic on the beach, go on a moonlight drive or go anywhere the new season takes you. The mix includes some of the season’s finest deep disco/deep house/indie dance tracks from Perseus, Ronika, Yuksek, GLOVES, Moon Boots, Lee Stevens, MyKill, The KDMS plus unreleased tracks + red hot exclusives from St. Lucia/Viceroy, Jupiter/Supermen Lovers, Luv Shack Records and newcomers Gerard De La Disco. Big time thanks to all those who made special contributions!
Deep boogie + feel good vibes. Enjoy…
