Treasure Fingers dropped off his amazing remix of Tatiana Owens‘s new track, Beautiful People, out earlier on T&A Records earlier today. It’s a quite bouncy disco-tech vibe with some amazing vocal work laced on top.
Turns out they extended their remix contest for the original track until January 14th, where the full Remix package EP, also featuring GDD bud, Them Jeans, will be released as well. Full Details HERE.
Nashville newcomers, Basecamp, burst onto the scene late this summer with the R&B infused single, “Emmanuel,” which saw widespread support from artists and press alike. Outlets across the board compared the profound, fervent vocals and glitchy, percussive production to that of SBTRKT and Sampha — rightly so as “Emmanuel,” and the other 3 tracks on the debut self-titled EP, scream out to be played live in every way.
As with any great release come great remix packages, and today, we’re happy to premiere our friend Them Jeans‘ deep, dancefloor-ready remix of the breakout single. He’s found a beautiful balance of utilizing the blissful vocals from the original while kicking up the tempo to a nice, grooving 124BPM. Give it a listen below.
One glance at the tracklist below and you’ll realize that this mixtape has a different kind of dirty dancing to offer up. It’s a mix full of seductive Summer sounds that will accompany you during those times when a bad decision is the right decision. It’s Summertime mystery + sunshine bliss…laid back, sexed up vibes wrapped up + ready to be the soundtrack to your sleazy Summer.

Yesterday, Them Jeans graciously gave away his remix for Prince Club’s “Fruit Boots” on SoundCloud. Them Jeans presents his take on the already dance-floor ready track which includes the same spliced vocals and piano on the original, but also more of a drop after the intro, some added textures, as well as a bouncier and full-bodied bassline.
