Marshmello ft Khalid – Silence (Ookay Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Fans were delighted with the remix package Marshmello put together for his hit single, “Silence,” a chart topping hit featuring Khalid‘s smooth, colorful vocals. Featuring the likes of Tiësto, Illenium, and Slushii, it seemed like asking for more would’ve been greedy.

Now, however, a new take on Marshmello’s original is in the mix. Ookay delivers a leap of faith with his remix of “Silence,” engineering a vastly deviant sound from Marshmello’s take, as an energetic array of stylistic elements have been infused to compose a track almost unrecognizable from the original. A playful, prominent bass line, dramatic samples of telephone dial tones, and uplifting, bouncy synths power Ookay’s reproduction in a vastly different direction. With his remix of “Silence,” Ookay proves to be a producer who throws caution to the wind, exercising his innovation by pioneering a style that will throw listeners off guard with its novelty.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 5

This post was originally published on this site

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA music editor and staff writer Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.


What’s better than a happy hardcore remix of a Disney song? Nanobii’s rework of “Go The Distance” from Hercules is everything you never knew you needed. It’s both tender and rage-worthy, transporting the listener directly back to their childhood. Lindsey Marie’s vocals fit in perfectly with Nanobii’s playful, upbeat take on the quintessential Disney song. Personally, I need to go rewatch Hercules right. now.


Since the release of “Shelter” a year ago, there have been a plethora of creative takes the iconic Porter Robinson and Madeon collaboration. The track has been converted into every genre imaginable, and future bass — being insanely popular right now — accounted for many of them. Here with a completely different future bass take on “Shelter” are Frankie Sanchez and vocalist Cenji, who have given the song a completely fresh feel. Cenji’s vocals are deep and haunting, and Sanchez complements the vocals perfectly with understated beats and a subtle piano. It’s a beautiful rendition.


I’ve been following Rob Gasser for a few years, and each release of his has impressed me more than the last. He’s developed so much as a producer, and I look forward to everything he puts out, no matter the genre. His latest is a drum & bass remix of Chime’s “Wait For It.” With a playful, Wave Racer-esque intro with trippy vocals and racing synths, he ushers the listener into a summer-splashed rework of the track. As a total sucker for drum & bass, I fell in love immediately.


Though Dancing Astronaut covered this collaboration when it came out, I can’t NOT plug it again. As a fan of Fox Stevenson‘s since before he was Fox Stevenson (Stan SB, anyone?) I have enjoyed watching as he releases songs of all genres and build up a loyal fan base. When he announced he had a collaboration with Ookay coming out on Monstercat, I was ecstatic. It’s every bit as good as I could’ve hoped for. With tantalizing vocals from Stevenson and a ear-catching melody, this is guaranteed to be a favorite of mine for months to come.


When No Copyright Sounds released Phantom Sage‘s new EP a few days ago, one track really stood out to me.”When I’m Gone” features a gorgeous piano melody and nostalgic vocals, and I can’t stop listening. The vibe of it is similar to a Madeon song, which is probably what drew me to it. Phantom Sage is ridiculously talented and has produced a wide range of remixes and singles that have all been astounding. The 19-year-old is one to watch.

Ookay and Fox Stevenson make magic with “Lighthouse.”

Ookay & Fox Stevenson – Lighthouse (Original Mix)

This post was originally published on this site

Southern trap god Ookay and multi-genre artist Fox Stevenson have created a pop-infused trap single called “Lighthouse.”

With an ear-catching stutter effect in the drop and beat and Fox Stevenson’s lighthearted vocals, this song has strong potential to make it big. Though it’s far from Stevenson’s signature drum & bass roots, the talented producer delivers his playful sound to the collaboration in a whole new light. Ookay brings his genre-bending strength to the table in this single, working with Stevenson to create something entirely unique.

“Lighthouse” is out now on Monstercat.

Ookay Casually Announces That He Is Working On A New Album

Ookay made 2016 his break out year with the help of his transcending single, ‘Thief’. The track was original and a departure from the sound that many came to associate with the world renowned artist. Heavy with saxophone instrumentation and easily the catchiest hook of the year, ‘Thief’ became a landmark track. Today Ookay tweeted

Crystalize – Stay Woke (Original Mix)

This post was originally published on this site

Ever since his first piece of work hit SoundCloud in 2014, dynamic producer Crystalize has consistently cranked out an enticing medley of original tracks and remixes. Favoring Porter Robinson remixes in his early production days, Crystalize released beautiful renditions of “Sad Machine,” “Fellow Feeling” and “Divinity,” gaining him attention among Porter fans and beyond. Since then, he’s remixed Skrillex, Jauz, Ookay, graves and many more.

Now the producer seems to be focusing on originals and his latest demonstrates a true step up his production game. The dramatic trap track seemingly has two sides: a beautiful, alluring melody theme that draws the listener in, and the trap-infused, festival-ready drop. This is one aspect of Crystalize’s music that has been consistent throughout his productions: a focus on an overall melody with intervals of different music styles (trap, in this case) that he seems to effortlessly blend together. Though the melody in “Stay Woke” is subtle, it flows gracefully throughout the entire track all the way to the minimalist fade-out at the end.

There’s never a dull moment in a Crystalize track. See for yourself.
