Lane 8 flips Virtual Self’s ‘Ghost Voices’ on its head with enamoring new remixLane 8 Crssd Fest

Fresh from the Grammys Red Carpet, Virtual Self has gifted fans with Lane 8‘s remix of “Ghost Voices.” More popularly known as Porter Robinson, the producer was this year nominated for the Best Dance Recording category as Virtual Self for his wall-to-wall sensation, “Ghost Voices.” Though he did not win, the track has still not only had a tremendous impact on the electronic sphere, but has also reverberated through the music industry at large.

Lane 8’s take on the release flips the track inside out, pulling the piano to the forefront and shrinking the electronic elements out of focus in the introduction. Crescendoing notes eb and flow through the forefront of the track, while the vocal dances around the new sound structure. While the remix evokes an entirely different, more pensive set of emotions and energy than the original, it still soothes and sonically pleases the listener. The remix has been released on Robinson’s own YouTube channel.

Sasha’s Last Night On Earth dives into the archives ‘LNOE100’ compilation—the label’s first-everSasha Press

Last Night On Earth was conceived in 2011 as an outlet for Sasha to express himself. What started as a party also grew to become one of the most iconic labels in dance music, and over the years the UK stalwart has enchanted followers with his keen ear for atmospheric, often melodic releases that define the LNOE sound. Fast-forward about eight years, and Sasha’s brainchild is finally crossing into the fabled milestone of 100 releases. A celebration is obviously in order, and what better way than with a fresh compilation?

It’s at this time we’d like to remind everyone out that LNOE100 happens to be the label’s first-ever compilation—a bit of a shocking fact given its many choice releases and extended artist family. Thus, this adds a whole new layer of excitement, and milestone, to the record’s February 15th release. Slightly similar to Sasha’s Revolver series, LNOE100 is a refresher of past anthems coming out on the label, reimagined by some of the most cutting edge talents in this realm today. Powerplayers like Nicole Moudaber and Radio Slave have contributed to the fun, in addition to other notable acts like the rising Locked Groove, Fur Coat, John Monkman, and more.

Definitely a release not to skip out on.

Don Diablo takes on Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson in new remixDon Diablo

Don Diablo takes a stab at another official remix this year, altering Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus‘ “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart” into an groovy future house heater. With underlying, heavy synths and filtered horns, the first verse is brought up with a piano chord progression that implores listeners to dance.; the Don himself called it “piano house” on Twitter. Miley’s twangy vocals sink nicely into the bed Diablo has created for them, wrapping around a bouncy drop that’s filled with horns and dance pop percussion for an extra helping of catchiness more well-suited for the club.

Reddit future house aficionados recently crowned Don Diablo as the genre’s top player in 2018, and by the start of 2019,  the Dutch DJ emerged with an official future house remix of Panic! At The Disco’s chart topping “High Hopes,” which also showcased the funky electro house atmosphere with a piano progression to match.

 

 

 

New super group AHZ takes on Nine Inch Nails’ ‘Closer’

New super group AHZ takes on Nine Inch Nails’ ‘Closer’Ahz Press Ohoto

Nine Inch Nails have become a legendary rock act with a career that spans more than three decades and multiple Grammy Awards. While Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross aren’t commonly thought of in terms electronic production, the crossover between NIN and sub-rattling festival music is actually quite prevalent. Now, standing at the intersection of heavy rock tropes and electronic music is newly launched super group AHZ, consisting of Brody Jenner, SAVI, Loren Moore and 2Cents’ Adam O’Rourke. Taking on Nine Inch Nails’ 1994 industrial cut, “Closer” AHZ continues to build out their bass-punk hybrid catalog with a menacing new remix.

AHZ breathe new life into the 25-year-old track, leaving the groundwork intact and building a beating mid-tempo monster around the original’s vocals. Thunderous drum arrangements come together with oscillating low-end growls, making for a festival-tent ready setlist igniter and perhaps AHZ’s hardest-hitting release to date.

Illenium branches out into the punk rock universe with new spin on Angels & Airwaves hit ‘The Adventure’Illenium Lost Lands Supplied By Team

Illenium never falls short when it comes to a consistent output of singles and remixes. The latest remix to join his rolodex is his take on Angels & Airwaves’ “The Adventure.” The remix has been released via Proximity, and it racked up more than 50,000 plays in its first 24 hours on the YouTube channel.

Illenium’s choice to remix this particular track is an interesting one given “The Adventure” is a punk rock release at its core. Illenium has been known to remix pop tracks, including hit remix for Halsey’s “Without Me” that has been a crowd favorite during his live performances. His take on “The Adventure” has minimal additions to the nine-year old track, but he layers subtle electronic chords and an additional guitar line to the backdrop of the release. His remix gives “The Adventure” another dimension, and showcases his versatility as he applies his production skills to a new and unexpected genre.

Skrillex and Wolfgang Gartner’s classic ‘Devil’s Den’ gets a 2019 revamp by newcomer LICKLick Perfoming Live Facebook

LICK may not be a household name yet, but that’s likely all about to start changing. The emerging Phoenix-native producer is the newest recruit to be called up to the Alt:Vision ranks, joining the likes of Wolfgang Gartner, Autograf, Drezo, k?d, and Dancing Astronaut‘s Breakout Artist of 2018, Medasin, among others. To celebrate his freshly-inked deal, LICK took on Gartner and Skrillex‘s unforgettable “Devil’s Den,” for a brand new remix that introduces the up-and-coming producer in bold fashion.

The original track, found on Skrillex’s Grammy Award-winning Bangarang EP which just celebrated its seventh anniversary, has maintained a constant spot within Skrillex’s sets over the years. Now, with LICK’s rendition, the track has received a modern day mid-tempo revamp that’s equally suited for heavy live play, perfectly toeing the line between fresh and nostalgic.

LICK is primed for a breakout campaign this year with a Deadbeats-signed EP already slated for early 2019, as well as major festival bookings including Electric Forest later this year. Making a splash at the onset of 2019 with an aced “Devil’s Den” remix, expect LICK to stay on your radar all year long.

Point Point certainly executes their eponymous goal in “A Piece of Sun,” from their 2016 Family Portrait EP. The ultimate mood remedy, “A Piece of Sun”‘s thumping percussion, mallet insertions, funky breakdown, and invariably catchy beep-boop melody is the perfect dose of eccentric escape.

All is well inside Washed Out’s hallucinogenic wonderland, “It All Feels Right.” The song’s floating strings and melting, vocoder vocals are best suited to pristinely preserve and replenish depleted serotonin.

San Holo is kickin’ it old school this week, with the release of his Create Create Create EP under his nascent Casilofi alias. Taken from the EP, “Little Treasure” is a paragon of slow-motion splendor, with its tender synth plucks and airy percussion. Dancing Astronaut has just deemed the song the only known phenomenon to move slower than a Sunday morning.

The master of majestic chill-step, Blackmill narrows the gap between violence and delicacy with his anesthetizing dose of “Evil Beauty.” The track’s jarring snares and winding, transcendent piano progressions arrive as an emotional emblem of end-of-weekend paradox.

Place your dreams inside Catching Flies’s remix of Mt. Wolf’s “Life Size Ghosts,” and watch them furrow and expand atop your eardrums. The remix’s twinkling bell synths, rattling harp strums, and syrupy saxophone light up this week’s playlist—as rare and radiant as Northern Lights.

Both SNBRN and Hotel Garuda are known for their laid back and approachable take on house music. After dropping off “One Reason,” his first solo single since the departure of Manila Killa, back in November, Hotel Garduda has enlisted SNBRN for an official remix of the uplifting track.

SNBRN puts a deeper, more atmospheric house vibe on the pop-oriented original. With powerful chords and bold synths grounding the remix, SNBRN’s take on “One Reason” is equally fitted for a live set from both producers, merging their respective styles into one complementary remix. While keeping the vocal chops of the original intact, SNBRN brings in emotive strings and textures to accompany them, resulting in an alluring rework offering.

A few months after the debut of The Knocks‘ latest album New York Narcotic, the album’s most successful single has gotten a re-up with the release of the Brazilian Soul Remixes EP. The new iterations of the song see it evolve from its original style as a funky and laid-back summery groove, into broader electronic territory.

Leading the way on the release is Brooklyn-based tech house outfit Walker & Royce, who have brought “Brazilian Soul” to the club for techno fans, followed by a big room remix from FTampa. The EP also includes an ’80s-influenced electronica take from Gilligan Moss as well as an “Acoustic Bossa Version” that features a gorgeous arrangement of ukuleles and vocals.
