OKAY, OKAY… before you go “Really? Another ‘Jack’ remix?” – take in mind that we thought the same thing and the ONLY reason why we’re posting this for you guys is because its well worth it. The artwork doesn’t help the argument either, I know… But throughout all the heavier to groovier versions put out, the DC badman Tittsworth has teamed up with co-producer Alex Eljaiek to bring something far off his own beaten path – and its insatiably deep. They don’t stray far from the original, but rather evolve into a tech house spirited rolling bassline that sends this into “after hours” territory. It was even approved by the big wigs at Dirtybird!

Today we shine the spotlight on a darker side of the release, brought to you by our LA friends VCO.

From living with no hot water or cell phone after a commercially unsuccessful first album to being named Rolling Stone’s “Best Secret Weapon” in 2011, writing eight #1 singles in the year alone, Bonnie McKee‘s career appears to be taking on new direction. As she bursts into the pop music scene for round two, business mixes with pleasure as her boyfriend Oligee (1/2 of Oliver) teams up with his musical other half, U-Tern, to remix her hit single, “American Girl.” The product of this talented power couple is a club anthem set to have you shuffling at the dance breaks and belting the lyrics when the chorus hits. The original by McKee is available to purchase on iTunes.
Aside from the 303 big room remix from Calvin Harris, the mysterious Aussie duo known as The Only have answered the call to taking Fat Boy Slim & Riva Starr’s summer anthem “Eat Sleep Rave Repeat” and sending it through the festival meat grinder. The original’s funny vocal sample helps carry the tune along, but these boys put the emphasis back on the drop. Fans of Bingo Players, Felguk and Clockwork will be all over this one… grab the exclusive download below!
*Be on the look out for The Only’s new single “Back To The Program out Aug 16th, and their forthcoming remix for What So Not on Skrillex’s imprint OWSLA!
The Only on
Hot Since 82 is having a banner year, and the man from Leeds is showing absolutely no signs of slowing. So far this year he’s already had a couple chart topping hits, and I’m claiming his latest remix of Green Velvet to sit comfortably atop the ranks when it sees a release on Circus Recordings. With a commanding bassline that churns under the haunting vocals of Green Velvet, this tune is primed to be doing the rounds across the globe.
The Parisian young gun known as DJ Snake has been riding huge hype since his breakout Bird Machine EP, and to show his fans some TLC he just released a FREE remix of AlunaGeorge‘s “You Know You Like It” on his soundcloud. The original was already a huge jam and the Bondax remix that followed bumped it up even more, but Snake’s version is pure fire no matter if you’re into trap tempos or not. Don’t sleep on this one, most definitely a summer staple.
