Summer is in full swing, and after a huge 4th of July weekend what better than to keep the vibes rolling along with a new one from our GDD fav Viceroy! This time, the SF-based wonder churns out an official remix for Maroon 5‘s new single “Love Somebody.” This one reminds me of earlier indie-dance tracks we used to love from the likes of Grum and Fred Falke. Get your hands on it below!
It was surprising to hear this Lana Del Rey song so much in sets lately from the likes of Tiesto and Kaskade, but then again not really. And I can’t say I was even that excited to click play on another LDR remix. But Serge Devant went for a more hypnotic and sexy deep house remix to the original, and it’s much unlike any rendition out there. Stripping away the track to it’s bare essentials, then pitching Lana’s voice, and sampling only what he needs to complete the track in proper remix manner, makes this track interesting to me. Be sure to check back and subscribe to his Soundcloud channel to be on top of when this get’s released as a free download.

CHVRCHES are set to come out with a new single soon and have commissioned the help of Groundislava to work his magic on their electro pop anthem, “Gun.” He brings a jungle/island house sounding vibe to the break and amplifies the danceability to the track with a pumping hi-hat loop that will have you up on your feet in no time. You can pre-order the new Gun EP itunes in the U.K. but no official date on a release for the U.S.
With a big festival week on our hands, we went behind the emerald curtain and into the studio with Hook N Sling to watch him break down his recent remix of The Presets‘ “Fall”. From the synth leads to bassline, from buildup to the drop, watch (above) as the Aussie producer takes the original vocal and sends it straight to the main stage…
It would appear Random Access Memories and Settle are vying for which album can get remixed the most times after both their respective debut’s. Amongst all the chaos, though, you find remixes like that of SLDGHMR that are different enough to hold your attention. Known for their edgy disco sound, they break away a little to create a sensual techno breakdown during Disclosure’s “F is For You.” After the release of their latest EP Reset it would appear SLDGHMR is hitting the production front hard, and if pieces like this become the product, who can complain!
Following up on his first solo original release, Illusions, out on Big Beat Records, the budding producer/DJ out of the UK, Special Features, comes through with his progressive house remix of Ellie Goulding‘s “Only You.” With this latest offering, he flexes his expert remixing skills while applying his signature, melody-driven sound that melds perfectly with Ellie’s distinctive vocals. Check out the remix below and keep an eye out for more Special Features to come.
There are some birds chirping overhead as kids run wild in the lively green field and playground, teenagers are walking hand in hand as adults rest up and take in the refreshing summer breeze on the park benches, and you are taking a stroll on the reflective concrete path with your earbuds in and arms gently swaying to the beat. Maybe it’s to clear your head, maybe it’s just to relax, either way, if you’re not playing this Jerome LOL remix to D33J’s, “Park,” the next time this scenario becomes available, you’re doing it wrong.

Watch out Madeon, the most recent prodigy to rise through the ranks from across the pond has been making huge waves at the innocent age of 15.

The Kyogi remix features a bouncing indie dance beat while he chops up the illuminating vocals from Kyiki. When the chorus kicks in, a new drum kit pattern ensues with a hip-hop flair that gets your head bobbing in no time. No word yet on release date.
