Great Good Fine OK
You're The One For Me (option4 remix)
option4, an artist with whom we’ve had the pleasure to showcase a few times and even premiere, has been augmenting his rapidly expanding fan base on the heels of a deep, party appropriate stable of house remixes and originals. Today however, the astute producer has shed another layer of production psyche, and turned to a sunnier, provocative sound on this latest rework of indie-pop outfit Great Good Fine OK‘s anthemic single “You’re the One For Me”. We weren’t sure how this one would translate to the dance floor, especially from such a unique artist like option4, but alas, our concerns were ultimately fruitless and the mark was hit directly on its bulls-eye. The tempo is pitched up slightly on option4′s rework, glossed with a very U.K. influenced shuffle and a punchy kick. Like most of his tracks thus far, option4′s remix of “You’re the One For Me” is being gifted to us Ninjas as a free download on his Soundcloud, so do your cochlear cavities a favor and plug into this one at some point today.
Shadow Of The Sun (Original Club Mix)
Those hair-raisingly stunning and dreamlike vocals, remember those? Back in April, we shared one of our favorite vocals with you, “Shadow of the Sun”. It was stripped down to the most beautiful and vulnerable of its barest essentials – the voices of Swedish duo Max Elto, and the gentle keys of the piano. Now this pair (formerly known as Taped Rai), returns with an original club mix version of “Shadow of the Sun”. Like all comebacks, the track exudes an outbreak of confidence, energy, and synths that will be having crowds singing in unison, quite likely by this weekend. What are you waiting for? We know you’ve been waiting for that beat to drop in this track as long as we have.
Fix This (The Chainsmokers Remix)
This Big Apple producer/DJ duo snuffed out their smokes and focused in on one hell of an indie electro house tune. Through the wisps of extinguished cigarettes, we see a real dance floor pleaser rise up. Smokey descriptors aside, we’ve always been fans of The Chainsmokers, and “Fix This,” continued our affinity for their creative and unique sounds.
Calling on similarities of indie dance tunes from the likes of Dragonette and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, it’s no wonder Alex and Drew were chompin’ at the bit to get their hands and software all over this tune from The Colourist. The focus of the tune is definitely on the vocals, which aren’t overly treated. Couple that with a heart pounding electro house melody, and you’re left helpless to this remix’s demands. What are those demands exactly? It’s simple really. Dance.
The Rocking Asian Girlfriends
Up and comer Ryan Otter delivers a fiery big room electro house banger with TRAG (The Rocking Asian Girlfriends). Reminiscent of acts like Swanky Tunes and Dyro, Ryan Otter has proved with this tune that he can run with the biggest.
Euphoric big room progressive melodies give way to a simple yet incredibly catchy bass hook that is sure to get peaktime crowds moving. Ryan’s past work includes collabs with DJ Carnage and The Cataracs and with an already impressive portfolio, Otter is one act to keep your eyes on.
Dutch producer Oliver Helden has brought a fresh new sound to Tiesto’s Musical Freedom label, and simply put, we’re grinning ear to ear. Not that we have a problem with trance, electro house or progressive house, but it’s nice to see a spotlight on a really solid tech house tune. Without the use of vocals, a beautiful melody or devastating drops, “Gecko,” crawls under your skin in the best way. It has one of those infectious beats that demands your presence on the dance floor, and we can pretty much guarantee that you’re going to oblige its siren call.
This tune is out just in time for your New Year’s Eve celebrations, dropping December 30th. Mark your calendar.
After a long, chilly week, we know that you guys are all ready to let loose. You’ve been destroying it at work, day in and day out, and you’ve now earned the right to do whatever the hell you want for two straight days. Whether you’re going to kick it at home, or head out to the club, we strongly encourage one thing. We’re pretty sure you know what it is by now, but if not, please see our request below.
