Let’s take a moment to appreciate how far Flyboy has come in the past two years. This Italian producer has progressed from creating super catchy remixes like this one of Fast Car, and this one of Run With Me, to releasing his own original songs. Maze, featuring frequent collaborator Gavrielle, and Jake Newton, is the perfect laid back summer jam. Keep an eye on this one, big things are coming.
Kaskade released his new single, Never Sleep Alone, on Soundcloud today, along with remixes from AC Slater, Louis the Child, and CID. Though all of the remixes are good, the Louis the Child remix is the standout, thanks to their unique sound. Louis the Child never disappoints, and where the other remixes (and original) sound a lot like other music being produced, the Louis the Child remix manages not to. Runner up goes to AC Slater. Check out Kaskade’s playlist, featuring the original plus all remixes here. Give Louis the Child a follow here, and be sure to listen to the rest of their remixes. You won’t regret it.
New Luca Lush is always a beautiful thing. Some argue that Flume inspired the overabundance of the synth-heavy future bass sound in music being released, and Luca Lush is one of those artists who transcends the usual sound associated with the genre. It’s fitting that he does so with a Flume song. This remix is mind-bending, and a testament to Luca Lush’s incredible production skills. As one commenter already said, he always pushes the boundaries, and this song is no exception. Follow him here, get the free DL here, and be sure to listen to it on something that has great sound quality, because this remix deserves it.
Future bass is, and has been, having a major moment. Like trop house, it’s starting to get a little played out (thanks Flume). But – once in a while, someone does something a little different, and it breathes new life into an overdone genre. This is one of those songs. The original is already sick, and in this remix, Quinn’s vocal, rap, and lyrics, work perfectly over the understated, synthey beat. He’s a fool for her love, you’ll be a fool for this song. Free DL here, and follow Tarro here, and Quinn here.
Ed Sheeran covered OT Genasis, and Hitimpulse remixed it. Thanks, guys. Ed is undeniably one of the most talented musicians in the industry right now, and this cover/remix is undeniably a thousand times better than the original song. It has a chill, Flume-y vibe, and Hitimpulse balanced production and vocals impeccably. Generosity is a beautiful thing, and there’s a free DL here.
Mark Johns is always money – with that voice, let’s be real. Always. Paired with the incredible production and unique, future/electronic sound, this one is a killer. It radiates too much cool to handle. Plus, those lyrics. It’s playful, chill, and definitely going to be on repeat all spring and summer. Download here!
Myles Travitz absolutely slayed this remix of Snøw by machineheart. It starts out softly with simple vocals and piano, until the beat kicks in and brings it to a synthey breakdown, and back again. It’s easy to put on, and keep on, for hours. Luckily, there’s a free DL here. Also, give him a heart on Hype Machine. He deserves it.
Jess Glynne has seen a great amount of success in 2014/15, culminating in a Grammy win for Best Dance Recording on Clean Bandit’s Rather Be. Hold My Hand is her follow-up single, and while it’s a great song in its own right, this remix really takes it to the next level. Her single is an upbeat pop song that shows off her impressive pipes, but Le Youth’s remix is sure to get people dancing a whole lot harder. It’s Wednesday, so use this to get you through to Friday. It’ll work. 🙂
Mark Johns is a girl to watch out for. Her voice is incredibly smooth, and she’s been all over the place lately, working on collabs with all sorts of artists, including Manila Killa. This futuristic, groovy original is great for the impending summer. The transitions and layers keep it modern interesting from start to finish. Looking forward to seeing much, much more from Mark in the future. Free download here.
