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.

Chase & Status are back with some heat for their fans. Hailing from London, the electronic duo is best known for their efforts in the realm of drum and bass, dubstep, breakbeat, and hip-hop. Now, they release two tracks from their upcoming fifth studio album, RTRN II JUNGLE, slated to be released next year.

The first song is titled “Retreat2018” and features Cutty Ranks. Fitting to the name, the record will have listeners turning up and taking over the dance floor for almost five minutes straight. The second, “Heater,” features General Levy. It’s three minutes of upbeat, positive energy mixed with some jungle mayhem.

The duo’s new project is described as a cultural movement “to bring the classic, infinitely influential sound of jungle to new audiences and revamping it for 2018.” In addition, they will be embarking on a mini-tour to promote the new project, with stops in Liverpool, Bristol, London, Manchester, and more.

London-based drum& bass producer, Dimension, known, among other things, for his residency at Amnesia in Ibiza, mixed his first official Fabriclive mix.

Stringing together a collection of 56 tunes from the likes of Skrillex, deadmau5, Andy C, Sub Focus, and Chase & Status, alongside a handful of exclusive productions, Dimension presents a definitive snapshot of drum-n-bass in 2018. Fabricive 98’s 56-strong tracklist also features 22 exclusives from its talented array of artists. Though listeners can expect a bass-brimming production, Dimension also spoke about how the energy of this mix isn’t solely of the dance floor.

“I wanted to make the mix special,” Dimension says in a press release. “I wanted it to represent my attitude towards the energy experienced at shows, but also appreciated the fact that the mix isn’t always going to be heard on a dance floor.”

Jauz releases Skepta remix, surprise collab with Slushii and Crankdat

This post was originally published on this site

Jauz has taken both land and sea by force this week, releasing a series of originals and remixes to celebrate Shark Week.

Earlier in the week, he released a dramatic remix of Lil Uzi Vert‘s “XO TOUR LIF3” and followed it up with a massive remix of a Skrillex and Chase & Status VIP.

If that wasn’t enough to set the boat rocking, the producer has also released a remix of grime rapper Skepta‘s “Man” and a new, vocal version of his recent collaboration with Crankdat featuring a surprise appearance from Slushii.

The Skepta remix is a wonderfully unexpected step for the bass producer into the world of grime. Its high-BPM, grungy vibes and unusual beat signatures sent Jauz fans into a tizzy over this new sound from the producer.

The collaboration with Crankdat and Slushii hit the internet just hours after the Skepta remix. It could not be more different from the former.  Jauz and Crankdat’s “I Hold Still” was initially released without a vocal due to legal issues clearing the track, but they’ve re-released the track with Slushii’s vocals layered over top of the adventurous electro beat.
