Summer is here, and more refreshing than ever. Josh Legg aka Gooldroom‘s latest single “Fifteen,” arpeggiating synths pulse like ocean waves around a thick bassline and relaxed percussion samples as lush melodies from Australian vocalist Chela narrate a romantic memory.

A bit outside most peoples comfort zones, this experimental track of glitches and filter wavings is the latest from Britain’s eclectic melodic scientist/producer Gold Panda. We blog about wonderful soft folk ballads and charging electronic bangers, but it is really the genuine emotion out of every production that captivates us to keep listening. Gold Panda, in the mist of textural pop and hisses, brings us his latest remix of “I Tried So Hard” by Night Works with minimalistic house kicks, and as a free download.
I Tried So Hard (Gold Panda Remix)
Quite possible the hardest, hip/hop influenced electro instrumental track we have heard this year, RL Grime brings us Trap on Acid. A genre mash up taking in the best of Southern Hip/hop with club banging build ups and drops. The New York producer who labels his music ‘Future-Crunk/Next-Level’ specializes in hip/hop induced electronics, and while he may not be the only one doing, it is definitely Next Level having successful remixes of Shlohmo’s ‘The Way U Do’ and ‘Over’ by Drake.

TOKiMONSTA, an electro artist hailing from Los Angeles with a reputation for pushing the boundering of electronic music bring us another successful remix of ‘Scissors’ by Canada’s Eight And A Half.
Posted on her soundcloud:
Did a remix a few months ago for the band Eight and a Half (on Arts & Crafts). I figured it may still be new to people, so peep. Their whole album is out now and is pretty dope: here

There is something about harsh electronic remixes of Indie tracks that get our hearts pumping. Not to make this a rant post but we literally recieve thousands of songs from indie songs being converted into the next “club banger” without any care to maintain the dynamics of the original track. The Dirty Tees have successfully created a strong heavy remix of Wildcat! Wildcat! ‘Mr Quiche’ in a flawless manner. Enjoy the Free download below.

CocoRosie are not your typical experimental/indie band. The sisterly duo have gone beyond the experimental and into the freakish and mystifying realm with their haunting and hazy instrumentation. Their latest single ‘We Are On Fire’, produced by Dave Sitek of TV On The Radio, is infused with trip-hop influences and much darker overtones.
“We Are On Fire” b/w “Tearz For Animals” is out 6/5 on Touch And Go.
