Drinking About You (The Chainsmokers Remix)
The Chainsmokers are so much more than their big room house hit “#Selfie,” and this is proven to be true with their latest remix release, “Drinking About You.” Singer Bebe Rexha gets her dub tune reworked by the New York duo, who layer lush piano chords atop angelic vocals, resulting in a slowed down melodic anthem that’s upbeat, yet serene.
The boys, who just finished wrapping up their world tour, are now settling back in the studio to prepare for the drop of their second original track entitled “Kanye.” We have no idea what to expect, but The Chainsmokers assure us that “Kanye” is the perfect follow up to “#Selfie”, without any bullshit.
“Drinking About You” will be available for purchase in September via Warner. Check back here next Tuesday, Aug 5 for the release of “Kanye.”

After adventuring around the Baker neighborhood of Denver for the past few days, we can officially say that we need a moment to wind down. While we’re prepped and ready to go enjoy The Underground Music Showcase’s fourth day, we’re admittedly a little exhausted from all the festivities.
With that being said, Miami 3-piece X3SR recently released “a e r o d y n a m i c” on SVNSET WAVES’ SVMMΞR SVN Vol 2 yesterday, and it’s absolutely perfect for our wind-down session. Featuring energetic percussion work with heavy use of hi-hats, this tune is a dreamy synth-driven ride that calls on associations of Tycho and Bonobo.
Whatever you’re up to, throw this on and enjoy your Sunday. After all, we’re all only hours away from having to return to the daily grind. Make sure you make the most of today.
Often (Free n Losh Remix)
Rolling off of the wave of success experienced on their first original release, “Lost”, Free n Losh have returned to remix “Often” from one of R&B’s most intriguing artists, and a favorite of quite a few Ninjas here; The Weeknd. Perhaps some of the most versatile electronic producers at the moment with credits on Mac Miller tunes, an official Pretty Lights remix and multiple trips to the almighty Hype Machine Top Ten charts through gleaming and cutting edge takes on dance genres; Free n Losh have peeled back yet another layer of their collective production psyche with this latest remix. The Canadian duo blends a distinct steel drum over a luscious two-step melody and and layer it all seductively amongst a sea of contorted snare kicks and hi-claps for a sound completely their own. With every passing release Free n Losh continually impress the hell out of our ears, and this cut might be one of our favorite from their entire catalogue. Grab the free download here, and slip into something sexy for this one, it might get a little hot.
New Dorp, New York feat. Ezra Koenig
Since the release of his self-titled debut album in 2011, SBTRKT‘s follow-up project has consistently been one of the most anticipated records in music. Today, almost exactly three years later, the acclaimed UK producer finally let loose the first single from the long-awaited project. “New Dorp, New York” departs from the lush synths and drum ‘n bass percussion fans have become accustomed to in favor of a far more avant-garde feel. With some help from Ezra Koenig, of Vampire Weekend, SBTRKT creates a sort of tribal groove continuing his experimentation and combination of sounds. Give this one a spin above and rejoice that SBTRKT’s sophomore effort, Wonder Where We Land, is on the way.
If you’re anything like us, you’ve been slowly sifting through an endless sea of minutia and manure today. Whatever industry you’re in, we’re sure you have you slow, building frustrations, and those frustrations need to be addressed properly.
Rather than going on a regretful twitter rant, we suggest you calmly press play, and get lost, if only for seven minutes. Taking a crack at Brooklyn based Komodo’s tune “Orange Ocean,” Loscil has dialed up an interpretation worthy of your deepest dreamscapes. Taking a piano-centric approach to the melody, this Vancouver-based musician will easily take you out of whatever stresses have been ailing you today.
This tune is off of the upcoming Pattern and Light LP, due out July 22nd.
Keep Your Mouth For Lying (cln Remix)
The science of physics and chemistry teaches that the liberation of energy comes in both thermal and nuclear forms, and perhaps many others had I paid more attention in class. Yet, nothing is more equipped at transforming the little bit of kinetic energy left after along ass day than the exothermic properties of listening to music. The already exquisitely relaxing track “Keep Your Mouth For Lying” by Australian electronic trio Crooked Colours has now been rebranded as a bedroom lullaby by Callan Alexander, better known as, cln.
Not to take away from the efforts of cln, who in this project is blessed to work with the controlled and emotionally rooted vocals of frontman Philip Slabber, but it is Slabber’s ability to induce empathy that gives the track such resonance. Between welcome vocal loops and stripped instrumentals, the Aussie producer captures a side to the track, that if we take out its inherent scientific factor, can only be described as heavenly.
“Keep Your Mouth For Lying” is taken from the ‘In Your Bones’ EP available through iTunes.
You made it. It’s now officially Monday night, and you’re one day closer to Friday. With that being said, it’s important to take some time to sit and reflect the overwhelming difficulty that you just overcame. To do so, we suggest you pour a nice glass of something. Bourbon would be our choice, but feel free to drink what you’d like. You all set now? Good. Press play and just sink into these dancy grooves from London based Disciples.
Harnessing one of the most soulful musical personalities to ever exist, this trio put a modern twist onto Marvin Gaye’s “Mercy Mercy Me,” from the absolute legend of an album What’s Going On. With soft, tropical undertones, Disciple expertly extracts memorable lines from the original, giving a more than adequate amount of respect to Mr. Gaye’s infamous tune.
This happens to be a free download. We suggest you download it and load it up for your weekend wind-down mix. Until then, feel free to stay right here and hit play again and again.
