House. Several remixes emerging on French Horn Rebellion’s ‘Girls’, one of those being the Rogue Vogue remix. Steady house version that sounds and feels like a Rogue Vogue production. FHR’s vox is quite present, might be room there for an instrumental version or an even more dubbed out version. No reason to complain though, this is brilliant. It’s a free download for a limited time only, and can only be unlocked by tweeting about the track.
House HM. Ruff TRX is presenting the Harddrive Homage remix on Danny J. Lewis’ ‘You Know I Like It‘, great floor tool. Also goes for Funkystepz remix on Drake’s ‘Started From The Bottom‘. Also could use a little less vocals. Syron followed Black Butter in posting the Marcus Jake Remix on here own ‘Here‘. Which basicly is a fantastic remix, but sounds slightly off key. KANT works out a remix on Emeli Sande’s ‘Next To Me‘. Which is what Jobe does for London Grammar’s ‘Hey Now’, lovely deep track.
Disco. Annie Mac premiered a little disco surprise this week, named SOPHIE. It’s a mashup of two of SOPHIE’s tracks, ‘EEEHHH’ and ‘Nothing More To Say’. Listen to both original tracks here. SOPHIE also wins a best website of the year award.
Disco HM. Another one of the French Horn Rebellion remixes is for FM Attack. Cosmic Kids remix Local Natives on ‘Breakers‘. Funk Leblanc is a producer from San Fransisco who’s said to have been djing for fifteen years. Although all of his Social pages look pretty new, so could’ve been someone else in the past. He remixes BlondFire’s ‘Where The Kids Are‘ for an Indaba contest. Downloads maxed out unfortunately, will repost if a new link appears. Swedish Shemusic has a nice free track up titled ‘Since You Left‘. Closing the Disco stuff with this nice Moonlight Matters rework on Electric Guest’s ‘The Bait‘.
Bass/Trap. Bird Peterson remixes what is prehaps Solid Groove’s biggest classic to date. As Solid Groove that is, people might also know him as David Taylor, an old Major Lazer producer or Switch. Like many records, ‘This Is Sick’ gets the trap treatment. Nice way to refresh, although you might want to hear the original too.
Bass/Trap HM. Marumasa does ‘Roll Out‘, not quite the gerne breaking stuff it is said to be but yes, this is a very cool production, even though a bit short. Dominic Pierce uploads an older 2012 project ‘Special‘, equally nice.
Dubstep. Figure does a huge huge remix on Aesop Rock’s ‘Coffee’. Comes in two versions, the original can be found below. And the Instrumental version alone works just as well, get that one here. And for those who like transitions, Tolgar throws in an extra edit that takes is back and forth between 145 and 170 BPM. You know, dj tools.
Dubstep HM. Mixmag is also giving away quite a nice dubstep track, the Swindle remix on Hadouken’s ‘Levitate‘.
Remixers, get your paws on Jamiroquai’s ‘Too Young To Die’ remix contest. Not only gets you the chance to work with Jamiroquai remix stems, but from the looks of it they really have their sponsors and prizes sorted out. Worth a shot.
