Mija has again turned to the multi-talented Ryan Forever for a joint release of the Skrillex-discovered producer’s “Dead Flowers & Cigarettes.” The rework sees release with an androgynous turtleneck in tandem, which Forever designed himself for the Made By Mija clothing line. Amidst jungle beats and fluttering samples from the original, an intruding bass lays the groundwork for the highly percussive remake.
“I’ve always said to people that I think my brain is half girl, half boy. I was a complete tomboy as a kid, until I discovered that I liked boys and quickly embraced my femininity,” Mija recently told NEST HQ. “But even then, the boys I crushed on often looked/acted very feminine. I believe that everybody carries both male and female qualities within them, and that gender is not exclusive to our physical forms.”
Aside from bumping elbows in various Dirtybird-centric circles, Mija and Forever have collaborated on a number of mode-fluctuating projects. One of the most recent of these includes Forever’s role as visual director for Mija’s music video accompanying the original take of “Dead Flowers & Cigarettes.”

‘Marble Floors’ by Rick Ross and French Montana’s was already a massive hit. With an all star cast of collaborators including Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz as well as Montana and Ross, the song was hailed as a standout on French Montana’s 2013 LP, Excuse My French. Today, Nick Evol has released a dark and
The idiosyncratic sound constructions that distinguish Flume‘s style flourish on “Dreamtime,” one of the many sonic gems that glisten with audible brilliance on Flume’s recently released mixtape, Hi, This Is Flume. A cacophony of glitchy electronic elements on loop, rhythmic tapping, and a tunnel of white noise that is both airy and eerie comprise the components that construct an opening that leaves a resounding impression on Flume’s listeners.
So, too, does Spirix’s. The California-based electronic entity tackles Flume’s “Dreamtime” in a new remix. Spirix’s flip of the Hi, This Is Flume favorite surfaces as Spirix’s first showing after a four-month hiatus. As Spirix’s re-imaginative effort demonstrates, the brief reprieve from the production circle served as an effective incubation period for Spirix’s sonic edge, which is perceptibly sharper in this latest undertaking.
Spirix cuts the wispy, dreamlike vocal of Flume’s original, to foreground his electronic trajectory of revision. From an atmospheric ascent with synth work of an indie-cinematic strength to back the track’s climb, to a layered descent delightfully upbeat in nature, Spirix’s version of “Dreamtime” is reflective of his own unique musical vision. Spirix’s remix is versatile; the revamp is an undeniable playlist stunner, and simultaneously well-suited for potent club play.
The world was begging for this remix for months. The second that the children’s song, ‘Baby Shark’ hit the airwaves in an insane resurgence, fans were pretty insistent that Jauz try his hand at remixing the track. After months of waiting, and a lot more teasing than was probably necessary – Jauz finally gave the
Galantis and Kygo seemingly might not go together at a surface level. But when you start considering their similarities rather than differences, it becomes clear pretty fast that both the tropical house pioneer and the masterful melodic duo are a true match made in heaven. In their latest meeting of minds, Galantis took on Kygo’s
It’s been nearly one year since the world lost Avicii. The music community has shown tribute to Avicii since his death by releasing dedicated tracks, remixes, and sets in his memory.

NGHTMRE’s collaboration with A$AP Ferg was quite the sought after ID for quite some time in both his solo and GUD VIBRATIONS sets.

Twin Cities producer Elijah Hill has released a trap remix of the collaboration that caught everyone off guard, Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus’ “Old Town Road”.

2019 has been a massive year already for Morgan Page. With his latest original single ‘Gone My Way’ still riding high across clubland as well as 2 MEGA remixes already dominating radio waves across the USA, Morgan Page now turns his attention to Alessia Cara’s beautifully sublime single ‘Out Of Love’, delivering a remix worlds away from the energy of
It’s almost April 14 and for Game of Thrones fans, eyes have anxiously been fixated on that date as it marks the premiere of the final season of the hit HBO series. Surrounding this hype is a vast array of promo, of which includes a recent re-creation of the show’s iconic theme song in conjunction with Mountain Dew’s new Thrones-centric ad campaign.
The theme song “remix” consists of one lyric—”Dew,” eventually making way for Migos to hop in for some bars delivered from atop the iron throne. The “Dew” singers include NBA All-Star Joel Embiid, EDM power-duo The Chainsmokers, NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt jr, and more.
The Chainsmokers are clearly huge GOT fans themselves, paying tribute to the series during their Ultra Music Festival 2019 set (see the pair holding swords and playing an electronic cover of its theme at 1:11:30).
