Switch, the other talented half of Major Lazer, has made our day. We have been boombarded with Bad Girls remixes from a lot of producers and just when we were going to throw in the towel on ever posting a Bad Girls temix, bass master Switch comes a long with the help of Elliott and Rye Rye and drops an incredable remix of M.I.A. single. These two added verses plus the trap-influenced Major Lazer-esque bass style just raises the track to new banging heights.

Sound Remedy blesses us with an intensely rich remix of australian singer Giselle’s “Silk”. Unlike many dubstep producers going harder every day, Sound Remedy pulls back and lets the melodies shine through on this track, while still providing a comforting bassline.

Soothing waves of muffled sounds revolve around the latest EP from London mastermind producer Kindness. Just a few months after the release of World, You Need a Change of Mind on Female Energy/Polydor, he returns with an expansion EP for his single ‘House’ alongside soothing remixes from Erol Alkan and Zdar (and a drumless version of Swingin’ Party). With the love for exploring his obsessive love for ‘80s-era music modes, Kindness delivered a wonderful track titled “Gee up”, blending splashes of pop sweetness with chilled beats and tangy funk guitars. London producer Erol Alkan quickly identified Gee Up, creating an edit that accentuates every sexy curve from the original.
