Blaise – Dua (Vincent Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

LA-based DJ/producer Vincent puts a trapped-out spin on Blaise’s track “Dua,” a serenade of sorts expressing his love for rising UK artist Dua Lipa.

In a description posted to Vincent’s SoundCloud, the artist reveals he had a lot of fun making this one:

“When I heard the original track I couldn’t help but laugh and dance around…this is for the middle of a set where the energy can be taken to another level or the last song you play before getting out of the car and walk into a venue for a show.”

Vincent includes a dark piano melody with some hard-hitting bass and distorted revs that are certain to liven up any atmosphere.


Dua Lipa makes nomination history as Brit Awards announce 2018 nominees [full list]

This post was originally published on this site

The 2018 Brit Awards will be held on Feb. 21, with the London-based ceremony set to commemorate the standout British and international artists of the year.

Dua Lipa leads the nomination circle with five nominations for British Artist Video Of The Year, British Breakthrough Act, Mastercard British Album Of The Year, British Single, and British Female Solo Artist. The “New Rules” vocalist notably made history via nomination count alone — no British female artist has ever received five nominations in a one-year period. Ed Sheeran trails Dua Lipa with four nominations.

On the electronic end, Björk and LCD Soundsystem earn nominations for International Female Solo Artist and International Group, respectively. The xx and Gorillaz too make an appearance, both nominated for British Group.

A series of hip-hop artists are additionally up for awards, with Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Quavo, and Childish Gambino all receiving nominations.

Sam Smith’s album, The Thrill Of It All, received no nominations, despite being the third largest seller of the year. The album, however, will remain available for nomination next year, given its November release date. Smith will perform at the awards ceremony on Feb. 21, joined by Foo Fighters, Ed Sheeran, and Ran’n’Bone Man.

View the full list of nominees here.

Vicetone has upgraded their studio, and with the upgrade comes their progressive house remix of Dua Lipa’s “New Rules.” The Dutch duo talked about their production process for the remix, noting fans will likely hear them drop the track in live sets in the future.

“We had a blast remixing Dua Lipa’s vocals, especially after recently upgrading our studio with some fresh new gear. We used a lot of guitars and vocal recordings we did ourselves to give the song a unique and different vibe from the original. The whole process felt really natural and we already love playing this one out in our live sets!”

The upbeat remix adds a completely different feel to the pop song. Fans of the remix can download it for free here.

Dua Lipa – Hotter Than Hell (Heroless Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

At just 17 years old, riding producer Heroless has already begun paving a way for himself in the scene. With three huge tracks already under his belt, including a fiery trap flip of Tchami’s “Adieu,” the Norwegian producer now gives us a taste of his sonic capabilities and production efficacy on Dua Lipa‘s “Hotter Than Hell.

In the new remix, Heroless lowers the pitch of the Martin Garrix collaborator’s vocals, delivering, in turn, a powerful chorus rich in both resonating bass and synths. By chopping Dua Lipa’s vocals into a lead melody, Heroless creates an energetic future bass track backed by powerful stabs and popping drum kicks. Heroless’ flip of Dua Lipa’s enticing vocals on “Hotter Than Hell” showcase his ability to weave multiple genres into an effortlessly smooth final piece.

Conro – Lay Low (Original Mix)

Canadian producer Conro has already had an exceptional 2017, and the year’s not even halfway over yet.

On May 17, the producer put out his latest single on Monstercat: a laid-back track called “Lay Low.” Unlike his previous release, a high-energy remix of Martin Garrix and Dua Lipa‘s “Scared to be Lonely,” “Lay Low” emits a much more relaxed downtempo vibe.

David Benjamin‘s smooth vocals glide perfectly over Conro’s mellow beats in the track. The producer is consistently pushing the boundaries of conventional electronic music, and the remainder of the year is sure to be a success for him.
