[Festie Music] VANIC VS EMINEM – The Last Stand

The Last Stand

Harkening back on my early college days, Vanic has grabbed my hand and taken me back to a day of bleach blonde hair and rebellious rap lyrics. Some of you may not remember 8 Mile, but I most certainly do. Our favorite renegade rapper made his silver screen debut with a story about his life and times before we all came to love him and his music.

Fast foward to today and Vanic has blended one of the most iconic scenes with some big buzzy dubstep beats. The essential vibes of the original are all in place. The feelings that are evoked by listening to “B-Rabbit” light up a Detroit nightclub in the feature film are perfectly encapsulated in this remix.

[TMN PREMIERE] Astoria Kings – Shine Your Light (Josh Money Remix)

Astoria Kings
Shine Your Light (Josh Money Remix)

There’s something about melodic dubstep that soothes anything that ails you. The epic vocals, the smooth rolling bass lines, and the carefully orchestrated synths just seem attach themselves so elegantly to the mood of track.

Yes, Josh Money has produced a remix that satisfies all of those wonderful things about a melodic vocal dubstep track. It’s slow, sensual, and really allows the original vocals from Astoria Kings to shine. The track keeps the same Imogen Heap feel, with heavily treated ethereal lyrics, only this time around it’s dialed up with a beautiful EDM treatment that begs to be played at full volume, with your windows down.

This brand new release is available as a free download on FiXT’s soundcloud page, so head over and grab a copy for yourself. Once you’ve downloaded it, make sure to head over to Beatport to pick up Josh’s recently released LP Carve.

[Dubstep] Justice – D.A.N.C.E. (PatrickReza Remix)


It is a catchy tune to begin with, then add the powerful jumpy beats of PatrickReza and this hard remix of “D.a.n.c.e” by Justice, is one to add to the summer playlist. Reza stays true to himself and his sound when remixing and this song is no exception. He adds a lot of likeable drumbeats and violins and electric melodies to make this song carry a heaviness but does not at all take away from the urge to dance. Turn it up and get ready to want to dance all over the room, head, body and feet.
