One of our favorite dirtybirds, Justin Jay, is currently finishing his last semester at University of Southern California, but that isn’t stopping him from releasing outstanding productions. His latest effort is a brooding remix of Disciples’ hit record, “They Don’t Know,” that takes a dive into the shadowy realms of deep house that were never fully explored by this gifted 22-year-old. With this remix release on February 22nd via Pete Tong’s FFRR imprint on top of a forthcoming EP on Catz ‘n Dogz’ Pets Recordings, major upcoming gigs like Holy Ship!, and more, Justin Jay is prepping for an enviable last semester and a massive 2015.

Sweater Beats is back on the viral Soundcloud tip – this time with a redux of Kimbra’s 2011 smoker “Settle Down”. Stripping down the jazzy tendencies in the track for a more sweeping and eclectic ambiance, Sweater Beats sticks to his production roots while still making Kimbra’s vocals really shine on the track – a feature often masked in remixes and bootlegs. Her unique voice sits high above the scattered drum varients and tingling piano work that with all their unique sequencing has an almost orchestral vibe to it.
So, go on tour with Chance The Rapper, play a dope remix in your sets, and get shit popping. Well done, SB.

Amsterdam based Mike Mago has been making serious waves in the house realm, finding unison in deep basslines and future driven leads. His productions have caught the ear of vocal phenom AlunaGeorge, who’s got him on the official remix of her single ‘Supernatural’… here’s what he had to say about the opportunity:
“I was really honored when Aluna George asked me to do a remix. Been fan a AG for ages! I tried to keep the strength and smoothness of the original and to switch it into the style I’m known for. I know this is a really cliche thing to say, but when your remixing musicians you’re a big fan of, it really comes down to that accurate balance.” – Mike Mago
