[Banger] Martin Garrix & Jay Hardway – Wizard (Radio Edit)

Martin Garrix Live
Martin Garrix & Jay Hardway
Wizard (Radio Edit)

There was a point in time where you couldn’t go anywhere without hearing “Animals.” Easily the EDM anthem of 2013, Martin Garrix’s fame was born as soon as the label finally released who was behind that legendary track. Now that the onslaught of remixes and bootlegs have died down, we’re once again prepping ourselves for some more addoration for this 17 year old superstar.

Teaming up with fellow beatsmith Jay Hardway, the two have just unleashed “Wizard,” about an hour ago. In a tune that Dumbledore himself would give a bearded nod to, we’re instantly hooked with the intricate layers of electro house synths that walk up to a enourmous build. In a somewhat similar drop to “Animals,” we feel the need to dance to the simplistic drum style melody that flirts back and forth with the gigantic bass hits.

[Disco-House] The 1975 – Girls (The Knocks Remix)

Girls (The Knocks remix)

Oh boy, do we love when remix duties are symbiotically thought out rather than the product of two talent agencies trying to highlight their respective artist du jour. So for us, it was a match made in indie heaven when production duo The Knocks took on the task of reinvigorating Manchester lo-fi garage-poppers The 1975 and their single “Girls” (which comes as part of their debut self-titled album) into a scooting clubland anthem. After being called upon for official remixes to the likes of indie stalwarts like HAIM, Of Monsters and Men, Grouplove, Foster the People and Two Door Cinema Club it was high time that they were called upon to work some of their big-room disco shimmer onto an emotive and dreamy tune. The Knocks’ take “Girls” to new heights with airy synth stabs, and a very nice play by pitching down Matthew Healy’s super recognizable croon and folding it back in with the original vocal track.  Expect to hear this one in many a disc-jockey’s set this season, and be ready for the full release on November 11.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #60

chill dojo

With dojo number 60 we are well into the golden years, but we’re far from retiring anytime soon. This week’s playlist gives us plenty of reasons to keep groovin on, and that’s what we plan on doing for a long time to come.

Now brace yourselves for the insanely sweet funk that is this remix of DCUP’s ‘Don’t be Shy’ by La Felix. Though this rendition wasn’t included on the EP, it may just be our favourite one, and it won’t take long for it to steal your heart as well. The smooth piano melodies and disco flavour sound like something straight out of Breakbot’s playbook, bringing an unescapable charm and a feeling of joy you’ll never want to end. Alas, we do need to move on, but thankfully it’s onto a track that is equally as smooth from one of our favourite artists in Bit Funk. Taking on a hip-hop classic from Pharcyde is no easy task, but the way this set the Hypem charts alight over this past week is testament to how well this was pulled off. This is the version for 2013 which nails the vintage 90′s style to a tee. Another man who oozes old school flair in everything he does is Aeroplane, and his latest remix of Mayer Hawthorne is another treat for disco fiends everywhere. The gifts keep on coming with this bright and sunny take on Goldroom’s ‘Embrace’, which is no doubt the way it is best enjoyed. The original has definitely been getting plenty of remix love lately, but these tropical vibes from UK’s jackLNDN were not to be denied. But for those whose dancing legs aren’t what they used to be, it’s time to tone things down to a more relaxed feeling with this beautiful tune off Maribou State’s recent EP Truths. The sampling and vibes in this song are all on point, making for music that is simply good for the soul. And sometimes simplicity is the best thing when it comes to chill music, especially when dealing with the calibre of London Grammar’s ‘Hey Now’. Phil Drummond stays true to that notion completely with his edit of the original, adding subtle touches ready made for deeper house sets. On a final note, we end the playlist with a tribute to the passing of legend Lou Reed, a man whose musical contributions will never fade.

That’s the magic of this powerful stuff we enjoy writing about so much. Peace out.

Hold On, We’re Going For The Remix – The Best Remixes & Covers of Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home”

Drake-Hold-On-Were-Going-Home-1

Last week was Drake‘s birthday (October 24th), and in order to properly celebrate his 27th year on this earth, we’ve put together a nice little belated gift for October’s Very Own. Below we’ve compiled 22 (because 20 just wasn’t enough) of the best covers and remixes of possibly the most addicting single to drop this year, “Hold On, We’re Going Home.” It’s almost astonishing how many unique renditions of the track we were able to find during our search, making it incredibly tough to narrow down our selection. Nonetheless, we’ve broken them down for you into two separate collections of 11 songs each, listed in no particular order. Even the staunchest Drizzy haters will find something to enjoy here, with revisions that range from the garage rock stylings of Arctic Monkeys to the festival friendly Max Methods refix and everything in between.

Check out all the different selections below, and let us know if there’s any that we might’ve missed!

[Video] Carousel – Another Day

Another Day

It’s been a little while since we’ve heard from our favorite Happy-Dance duo Carousel, as they have been on tour or locked inside of their studio for the past handful of months, so when their brand new music video for one of our favorite singles off of their recent Palms EP, “Another Day”came across our desks, it was met with a beaming grin. The video, directed by Felipe Torres Urso, follows a very fraternity-associated looking young man into a Summer pool party as through the eyes of a very young girl and her dolls and then on a day with a beautiful girl, which conceptually unfolds quite well in an artistic and simple manner. Enjoy the official music video for “Another Day” below and if you haven’t already picked up a copy of the excellent Palms you can do so after the jump for the price of just your e-mail.
