Hello. Thursday. Remixes.
The Chainsmokers kidnapped Bastille and held them up until they agreed to surrender the stems to "Flaws." After doing so, they were set free and returned to their normal non-selfie-taking routine. I heard restraining orders were filed but Alex and Drew went ahead and remixed the track anyway.
Cut Copy just unleashed DFA’s Larry Gus’ take on their anthem, “We Are Explorers.” It was explained to a much smaller music publication called something like...Rolling Stone?.. "this remix epitomizes everything that is incredible about Larry Gus. He is a master at collaging together obscure sounds and live percussion to create something magically evocative and new.”
Beatnik continue their aural assault on 2014 with a remix of "Jerk Ribs" by Kelis, adding their electronic spin to the singer's soulful sound.
Mystery Skulls' catchy brand of electro-pop has invoked seven different remixes from some of dance music's most talented and upcoming producers. Fred Falke, Claude VonStroke, Thomas Newson, Viceroy, Martiginetti, NVNO NINO and Solidisco (below) all compel listeners through the power of their spirited productions.
Valentino Khan and Bro Safari have linked up to deliver an explosive remix of M.I.A.'s hit single "YALA." The two have known each other for a while and finally linked up to collaborate.
Russ Chimes is one of the UK’s most prolific producers, who has remixed the likes of Mark Ronson, Ellie Goulding and Booka Shade. Russ Chimes also has a top #40 UK single under his belt for last summer’s ‘Turn Me Out’, so it’s no surprise that his remix of Arches' ‘There’s A Place’ is one for the dancefloor.
