French producer Sebastien Léger is definitely an electronic music veteran in his own right, with almost 20 years of experience under his belt. interestingly, throughout the duration of his lasting career, Leger has stayed true to his experimental style— a trend that a worrying number veteran DJs tend to shun in modern times.
His latest remix of Henry Saiz‘s “The Golden Cage” is an eight-minute-long auditory voyage in continuity with his time-tested style. Using his abundance of experience, Leger is able to meticulously craft an intriguing soundscape, filled with an abundance of analog elements that give the remix character, a quality missing from a majority of songs in current circulation.
Although I love music in all its forms and flavors, chill electronic music will always hold a special place in my heart. For that reason, I’m stoked to say the rising, LA based electronic duo, Vindata, recently put out a wonderfully relaxed new remix of Aabo and Lafa Taylors recent tune, “Falling.” Check it and
His remix of “Walk on Water” adds a dance music backbone to the original track, but doesn’t stray too far from the empowering rock song’s core. R3HAB lets lead vocalist Jared Leto‘s voice guide the track, adapting it just slightly to fit in with the producer’s discography. It’s a well-executed of an already brilliant song that will rouse fans of both dance and rock music.
Kaskade has placed his re-imaginative stamp on “Stargazing,” the lead single off of Kygo‘s newest EP of the same name.
The original hails straight from Kygo’s wheelhouse, layering Justin Jesso’s melancholic vocals atop a piano assisted backdrop characteristic of the Norwegian producer’s sound. Kaskade maintains much of the single’s character in his rework, weaving subtle elements like an understated yet ambient guitar melody among the song’s opening chords. The remix maven localizes the majority of his sonic revision at the track’s first drop, trading Kygo’s signature mounting airy tones and piano drop for an echoing ascension that culminates in a drop defined by its piercing synth work.
Deservedly nominated for a Grammy and named Beatport‘s No. 1 track of the year, it’s for certain the number is a telling testament to the changing tides of dance music. “Cola” is appeasingly emotive in its nature, but it’s a sensible production that appeals to clubbers and introspects alike, an ever-rising phenomenon in contemporary club culture in itself.
German producer Robin Schulz is the latest musical maven to be tapped for a rework of the anthem. After his rise to commercial success with edits like “Prayer In C” and “Waves,” it only makes sense he would take on this momentous work.
Schulz puts an expectedly enlivened spin on “Cola.” He dissects the original’s minimal production and introduces what seems like a mere tech house commencement, but eventually builds to a contrasting big-room deliverance. Most notably, Schulz’ contradting rework manages to maintain the original’s affective affluence with an ascension in the dance reigns.
Mark Kinchen, known better as MK, has released his remix of Rihanna and SZA’s “consideration.” With hundreds of releases under his belt, a career spanning three decades, and a hands on education in Detroit techno, Kinchen brings his expert production to the table, injecting his own Chicago house influenced synths and signature textures to the track.
At its core, the track is an amalgamation of contemporary hip hop and underground dance music. Synthesizing contemporary vocals from such legendary vocalists as Rihanna and SZA with prodding, deep house drums and atmospheric synths is no easy feat, yet Kinchen certainly seems up to the task. Kinchen showcase an impressive ability to draw out Rihanna’s latent dancehall influence; a testament to his quicksilver production M.O. Kinchen seems to turn everything he touches into dance-floor gold.
21-year-old Mura Masa has built up a staggering, incredibly impressive production catalog in a very brief time span.
Having finally returned off the debut of his self-titled album, out earlier this year, the British artist expectedly stuns in a catchy new collaboration. Taking on a production from indie rock’s favorite trio, HAIM, the producer breathes new life into their production ‘Walking Away.”
Masa opens his eclectic repertoire with the moving production opus. The resulting tune is a pleasing, electronica-washed rework taking the meaning of indie to entirely new heights. He’s flipped the track into a uniquely bright, melodious rework that’s surely unmissable and impossible to walk away from in all senses of the word.
One of Armin van Buuren’s biggest hits of 2017 was “Sunny Days” with vocals by Josh Cumbee. In light of the holidays, the Dutch electonic wizard did a refresh of the track, citing that someone told him he should try to put a Christmas spin on the song.
The outcome is “Christmas Days,” and van Buuren slows the BPM down considerably, placing the focus on the vocals as opposed to the production backdrop. The flowing song is the perfect soundtrack for those wanting to have a relaxing holiday.
Martin Solveig lovers, this remix is for you. Martin Solveig has released his very own remix to Tiga’s original track, “Woke.” Solveig has truly created a slow-paced funky essence to the track, providing a fun atmosphere to all that listen. Truthfully, this track has definitely surpassed the original version of the track due to the
Kayzo took 2017 by the reigns and rose quickly to the top of the bass music arena. The artist who was almost relatively unknown at the beginning of the year has embarked on a headlining world tour and is preparing to release his debut long play in just over a month. His legion of loyal
