Four months after Chris Lake‘s “I Want You” took OWSLA by force, a package of remixes is reigniting the hype around the track.
Among these remixes is a trippy trap track courtesy of QUIX. The New Zealand producer was thrilled at the chance to remix the house song.
“When OWSLA asked me to put my spin on this Chris Lake house anthem I was stoked,” he said.
In his rework, QUIX chops up the track’s vocals and staggers them over a grinding trap beat. The remix veers sharply from the original, taking it from a grooving, dance-ready house song to more of a festival-ready “banger.” Its nitty gritty, mechanical sounds give it a rough edge, breathing new life into what was already a strong production.
Fabich has had a successful summer to say the least. Following the release of his latest single “Hold On”, a groovy, laid-back house composition laced with heartfelt vocals, the English producer took this production a few steps up by procuring a variety of talented producers to remix the original version. Most notably, Australian producer Sonny Fodera placed his imprint on this track and morphed this single into hit well tuned for beachside clubs.
Expressing his excitement on the rework, Fabich mentioned his longtime Fodera fandom :
“Getting a remix from Sonny was really special. I’ve been following his career for years and I play one of his tracks or remixes in just about every DJ set I play. I love how he transformed the laid-back vibe of my original version into a perfect peak-time house banger!”
Fodera’s twist on the single embodies a deep house approach, pulling out a percussive bass line that draws listeners in with ease.
It seems that every track Flapo touches eclipses the prior. The Miami-based producer has a strong talent for skillfully remixing well-known singles like SIA‘s “Elastic Heart” and ODESZA‘s “White Lies” into effervescent electronic and pop masterpieces. Flapo’s signature sound is a fusion of melodic mastery coupled with glistening synth work and buoyant energy that consistently emits cheerful sensibilities.
For his latest delivery, Flapo hands over his reimagining of NoMBe’s unruffled original “Young Hearts.” By adding vibrant chords, sprightly beats, and vocoded vocal chops, the young producer turns the track into a stimulating and euphoric treasure that is filled to the brim with blissful, summery vibes.
There is no denying Dimension’s prowess as a quality Drum & Bass producer. That talented Englishman is currently a signee on MTA Recordings, and is no stranger to high profile remixes – having previously reworked Deadmau5’s classic single ‘Strobe,’ and Nero’s ‘Two Minds.’
His latest creation is a fantastic rework of Eric Prydz’s “Generate.” As is the case with remixing any hit single, preserving the soul of the original plays a critical role in determining the new version’s reception. Luckily, Dimension has absolutely nailed it with his tasteful edit, keeping the main melody and vocal samples virtually untouched, while adding in crisp percussion and deep bass lines- making for a gorgeous re-imagination of a modern dance classic.
Illenium has released the first phase of his Awake tour to begin November 11 in his hometown, Denver, CO, and has enlisted Trivecta for a new official remix of his hit “Fractures.” The six-date tour (with more dates TBA) will showcase completely revamped visuals and a new live setup, beginning at his biggest headlining show to date at the 1stBank Center in Colorado.
Trivecta’s remix is likely to be booming through the speakers across the tour, as it was recently teased in Illenium’s EDC recap video. The new rework is a high-energy take on Illenium’s passionate track, adding a gliding drop to the melodic original.
The artist’s currently-announced tour dates are listed below, with more to come.
House Music With Love has developed into one of Scandinavia’s most sought-after developing labels and platforms for dance offerings. Showcasing underground talent, the Swedish imprint recently brought on three rising producers to remix Sarajevski’s downtempo original, “Softlights,” and Australian young guns Sun City truly shined with their flip. Injecting a pumping, house-driven percussion ensemble, Sun City leave Sarajevski’s uplifting, lively atmosphere in tact while raising the energy to create a incredibly accessible summer remix.
As one of the latest of a growing host of artists to rethink Autograf’s recent track “You Might Be,” Syence had their work cut out for them to separate themselves from the crowd. The duo from California succeed in that end, delivering the melodic and harmonic depth and immaculate production quality for they are starting to become known.
Most facets of their usual sound are back in full force, such as the pleasant piano in the breaks, the tuned vocal chops in the drop, and the general arrangement. However, the synth design in all of the drops and the funky phased guitar in the last drop, although subtle, are different enough to bring about a fresh energy to this remix.
As the penultimate season of the award-winning show Game of Thrones edges closer to its most eagerly anticipated season yet, fans worldwide can barely contain their excitement. To add to the already feverish hype, acclaimed big room producer KSHMR & Golden Army have just released a bootleg remix of Ramin Djawadi’s epic Game of Thrones theme.
With this remix, KSHMR joins an ever-growing list of remixers — with Armin Van Buuren’s celebrated re-work being the most famous of the lot. The big room remix doesn’t digress much from the original, sticking to the same notable chord progressions and melody. KHSMR & Golden Army however, have replaced a majority of the actual instruments with digital synths and also adjusted the tempo to an extremely danceable 128 bpm, ensuring this remix is ready to be dropped at any club or festival setting.
Mercer serves up his latest “Human Nature”, a summer-friendly track that samples some groovy and classic Michael Jackson. Coining it “Nothing but a summer jam,” the track is airy and not too far of a step from tropical. Though a departure from many of his other releases, “Human Nature” still has many key qualities that are present in Mercer’s musical style. A thumping bass line, popping synths, and a BPM closer to the 124-130 house music mark make this a must for speakers this summer.
After two vibrant indie progressive remixes, up-and-coming duo Midnight Kids have put forth another energetic piece to add to their growing collection of tracks, establishing a signature sound categorized by playful harmonies, spirited percussion, and unforgettable melodies. While Midnight Kids are still a mysterious act – the members of the duo have yet to make their identities public – the two artists are quickly gaining momentum with every release.
The original by A R I Z O N A, “Electric Touch,” begins with a series of piano chord progressions in accordance with Zach Hannah’s soothing vocals, and then builds into a flurry of moving percussion and gentle guitar riffs. Midnight Kids take the breathtaking song one step further by incorporating more layers of alluring synth which add more texture to the original, and by creating a wildly addicting drop that makes dancing along irresistible.
