I absolutely loved Wankelmut & Emma Louise’s single “My Head is A Jungle” when I first heard it last January, and now I can’t be more stoked to premiere this remix from Friend Within today! FW gives the track the deep bouncy house treatment with gorgeous haunting vocals that makes it perfect for peak hour clubs or underground warehouses at 6am. Out officially September 15th!

Wankelmut is a subtle star. It’s not common for DJs who sell over 1.3 million copies for an official remix on Sony and garner 100 million plays on YouTube to be “behind the scenes” so to speak, but it appears that Berlin-based Wankelmut doesn’t need a Billboard cover or a headline festival slot to keep doing what he loves. Back in January, Wankelmut released “My Head Is A Jungle” featuring Emma Louise, which was championed by Pete Tong and Annie Mac vigorously on BBC Radio 1 in addition to strong DJ support around the world. 8 months later, the big tune will be seeing a re-release on Positiva, featuring the original accompanied by 6 mixes including remixes from MK, Friend Within, Gui Boratto, Solee, and Kasper Bjorke as well as an extended Vocal Mix from the original producer. The EP will be released on September 15th, but until then, stream the MK remix as well as the original below.
It’s time to set the mood for the upcoming months with the next installment of my bi-annual/seasonal mixtape series: aRod’s FallGaze 2012 Mix. The mixtape is chock full of lustful indie grooves, steamy disco + deep, sleazy house. Hot tracks from heavy hitters like Anna Lunoe, Disclosure and Van She along with some unreleased heaters from Benoit & Sergio, MANIK feat. Jeremy Glenn and Sure Thing…this mix should keep you warm and electrified from Fall all the way through Winter.
This remix of Asaf Avidan & The Mojos‘ “One Day / Reckoning Song” from Berlin’s Wankelmut was released on iTunes last month, and it’s been rapidly sweeping the globe long before that. Yesterday, the official music video for the remix was released, and it sophisticatedly illuminates youth, happiness, and a live for now attitude as the song portrays. Support good music and pick up the remix on iTunes. √++
