NMF Roundup: Oliver Heldens remixes CHIC, SLANDER and Spag Heddy team up, Ray Volpe flips Ookay + moreOcaso Festival Tamarindo By Pablo Murillo 06 01 2018 0525

It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday.

This week’s releases are true stunners. After announcing a collaboration with Lights back in July, deadmau5 has finally unveiled “Drama Free” as part of his mau5ville: Level 2 EP. Oliver Heldens throws it back four decades by remixing CHIC‘s 1978 hit “Le Freak,” adding in a pounding bass to accentuate the original’s groovy beat. Bingo Players and Bali Bandits bring the funk with “Body Rock,” and SLANDER and Spag Heddy waste no time setting “Running to You” on fire. Ray Volpe puts his own spin on Ookay‘s “In My Mind,” while Party Favor taps Naïka for the hefty “Blame.” As part of What So Not‘s Not All The Beautiful Things remix package, AC Slater‘s put his signature bass-fueled house spin on the famous “Goh.” Kill Paris has put his own laid-back twist on Alison Wonderland‘s “Easy,” and Ross From Friends thrills with a take on Thundercat‘s “Friend Zone.”

As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed this NMF.

Party Favor – Circle Up (feat. Bipolar Sunshine)Party Favor Circle Up

Party starting comes with the territory for Party Favor. It’s literally in his name. The production guru’s latest rowdy output “Circle Up” finds the booty-shaking producer teaming up with vocalist Bipolar Sunshine for what can only be described as a trippy tropical oasis. The tribal-influenced percussion here is undeniably fun, paired with a dance-hall aesthetic bustling with reggaeton influences and Bipolar’s iconic voice. The amalgamation of multiple genres into one delightfully bouncy and summer stylized production will almost make you forget that winter is well on its way.

Unless you live in Los Angeles, in which case, put your windows down, your volume up, and blast this bad boy for the rest of us.

Nitti Gritti is a force to be reckoned with in 2018. In August, he unveiled Bootlegs Vol. 2, a remix EP including edits of Earth, Wind, & Fire‘s “September,” Waka Flocka Flames‘ “Hard In Da Paint,” and other cult classics. More recently, he’s gifted fans with an original EP entitled Drive released on Diplo‘s Mad Decent imprint. With this string of EP releases (and a few remixes in between), the Miami-based producer is pushing boundaries and earning tour support for high-end artists such as NGHTMRE, Etc! Etc!, Party Favor, and more.

Now, on October 26, one of his most anticipated shows of the year has arrived, as Gritti will take the stage with Valentino Khan and Dillon Francis at Light & Life’s Halloween Warehouse 2018. To prime attendees for what should be a freaky night in the depths of Brooklyn, Gritti has curated an Orbit Spotify playlist exclusively for DA.

The selection includes hard-hitting tracks from his current rotation, including favorites from his Drive EP, the Boombox Cartel and Flosstradamus team-up “ID,” “Crystal Eyes” from Ekali‘s 2018 debut EP, and more.

Diplo & Party Favor team up for bass-heavy rework of Yo Gotti’s ‘Rake It Up’

This post was originally published on this site

Yo Gotti’s massive club hit “Rake It Up,” featuring catchy bars from Nicki Minaj, gets an explosive remix from none-other than Diplo and Party Favor, both of whom are running the show for Wesley Pentz’ own Mad Decent label.

Diplo has a habit of remixing popular hip-hop tracks, and his decision to pull in Party Favor, who is trekking through the US on his Tuned Out Tour, proves to be positive one, immediately kicking off the remix with bass-heavy synths to counter the original, going into a wild, trap-style drop. As fans know, Diplo is not one for simplicity, putting an upbeat, double-time spin on the second drop.
