They’ve done it again. The infamous LA duo Bixel Boys have landed an official remix to Kiesza’s #1 single “Hideaway” and have successfully sent it into deep waters without stepping on the toes of similar sounds. The product is energetic with a funky house feel and a sexy low end. The boys have been crushing a bigger sound as of late, but personally this is the Bixel vibe I love and hope for more of!

LA – Don’t miss Chris Lorenzo on May 15th @ NIGHT BASS and Hannah Wants on August 3rd @ HARD Summer!
Back in March, we threw one hell of a soiree with the Sweat It Out! crew in Miami during WMC. The takeaway included a most excellent hangover and an even stronger appreciation for what these Australians are doing to dance music. There’s no better example than Go Freek‘s We Can Ride release, which dropped today on the Sweat! imprint. There’s a mess of pads and bellowing bass blasts that dart around a pitched down vocal sample. They’ve dubbed it gutter tech, which more or less makes perfect sense. They also rounded up an A-team of support for remix duty, featuring mixes from Terace, Torren Foot, Craig Williams, and Dom Dolla, which are pretty damn great in their own right. You can pick up full package on Beatport.

To say that Amtrac has found his footing would be a drastic understatement. He’s been on a rapidly uphill climb, and rightfully so. His remix of Depeche Mode‘s Should Be Higher is nothing short of brilliant. The tight musicality in the synth work paired with the legendary vocals of David Gahan make this another belter of a tune.

It’s practically fact that you can’t have a bad Monday if you kick it off with a little trip to funky town. Miami’s Panic Bomber has reworked The Godfather of Funk and churned out 10 minutes of thigh burning heat. The tasteful ode to one of music’s all-time greats makes it difficult to listen to this one and not have the urge to start dancing.
The Dutch producer/DJ, Oliver Heldens, gives us yet another ear-catching track that reinforces his signature sound. First it was “Gecko,” then it was his “Animals” remix, and now it’s this Robin Thicke remix that is bound for success. Oliver Heldens has taken Thicke’s vocals and some melodic elements from the original, and worked in his distinctive style of groovy house music for a club-ready rendition. This remix will be released on Beatport on Monday, March 31st.
It’s undeniable that “I Got U” is rapidly establishing itself as the anthem of the soon to be sunny days, and with that title comes a jam packed remix package featuring the likes of French Express magician, Jonas Rathsman. The original track’s pumping back beat is toned down by the sultry ethereal house vibes of Rathsman, transforming it into more of a day dream than its pulsing predecessor. Check the whole package, out soon on iTunes, featuring remixes by MK, Tensnake, Bondax, and High Contrast.
Another day, another dollar. Unless you’re out there with high hopes to make this Monday extraordinary, like Vienna producer, Filous, who seemingly clears away the cobwebs to reveal a much more magical rendition of the mundane day. Fluffy for all the right reasons, this deep pop is precisely what the doctor ordered. To make matters more sublime, a free download has been offered up to keep the party going until the end of time in your iTunes library. Pour it up, pour it up, that’s how we ball out.
Coldplay released a new single this past Tuesday and it seems like the internet could not get over how much it sounded like Bon Iver. Regardless of their new sound, it was only a matter of time before everyone jumped on the bootleg remix train. The first one that caught my eye was this subtle, yet dancey take by NYC resident and Parisian transplant LEVI. Available for free download via his facebook page it’s chill in all the best ways.
Today, the Melbourne-based producer/DJ, DCUP, releases his new single, “Someone Told Me,” alongside remixes from La Felix, Flexcop, Space Jump Salute and Backstroke.

The newcomer, La Felix, brings a fresh arrangement and a funkier edge to “Someone Told Me,” while channeling a bit of Daft Punk/Chromeo with vocoder work. Listen below and purchase the release on iTunes.
