Shivers (Delusion Remix)
German producer Delusion is making waves with his latest remix of SG Lewis‘ “Shivers”. Talk about vibes – he spices up the original tune with a dance outfit and absolutely crushes it. The soothing vocals go perfectly well with the muted synth melody, while adding character to the soulful atmosphere. It’s a song you can easily jam out or relax to at the same time. The suspenseful buildup towards the middle is another highlight of the track, and it definitely shows how versatile his style can be.
We simply can’t wait for more music from Delusion. Give the track a listen and vibe away with us.
The Way You Say It (Bremen4000 Remix)
Swedish pop upstart Vanbot‘s latest single “The Way You Say It” and its album counterpart Perfect Storm have been receiving quite the heavy dose of reputable support and buzz. From a Four-Star review in The Times, to a public Twitter endorsement from mega pop-stars Tegan and Sara; Vanbot’s syrupy and infectious sound has been finding its way into nearly every corner of the music bubble. Appropriately, it was only a matter of time until the burgeoning synth-starlet’s malleable pop stems began receiving the very welcome remix treatment.
First to take on official remix duties is the very mysterious Sebastian Forslund and his Bremen4000 project, who’s deft touch pulls “The Way You Say It” into headier pop territory. A rolling vintage synth and burbling bass lay the perfect groundwork for Vanbot’s vocal, which has been cased up within a slathering of reverb, to bob just above water. While the original plays like an effervescent kiss on the cheek, Bremen4000’s revision toys with darker atmospherics and 80’s leaning synth work to make its point. Unfortunately, not much is currently known about the enigmatic producer (who as of the time of this TMN Premiere’s publishing doesn’t have a Soundcloud, Facebook or Twitter page to his name) other than his slightly unorthodox and off-kilter pop production techniques, and tasteful work mostly within the Swedish indie community. But, you can be sure we’ll be staying in tune with everything else to bubble up out of Bremen4000’s catalog. Until then, enjoy the Bremen4000 remix of Vanbot’s “The Way You Say It” above.
Motley Crue (AWAY Remix)
Sometimes when rummaging through Soundcloud, you get a little sullied because of how much mediocre future bass is out there. It’s a tasteful genre that not everyone can nail, but AWAY absolutely crushed it. With a remix of “Motley Crue” by THEY., AWAY managed to show off now only prowess with the genre, but song-writing versatility that few can manage. By the end of it we get a more bass heavy trip hop vibe than future that will just blow your mind. Before that we are met with well-produced composition whose rhythmic structures are that of genius.
Nothing is over the top about this record; everything about it screams quality and tastefulness. Many producers would have simply made two songs out of these drops, instead of making them work in one fully magnificent package. AWAY isn’t taking the easy route, and it will surely pay off if he delivers more top-shelf records like this one. This is the LA artist’s first track on Soundcloud, so we’re really anticipating something special this year from AWAY. After streaming this track on repeat a million times, head over to iTunes for a copy.
Do You Go Up (Kidswaste Remix)
Here’s a tune that will help you hit that reset button to your day. French producer Kidswaste puts out a remix of Khai‘s 2015 hit “Do You Go Up”, and it’s every bit of wonderful. Adding a fun and subtle beat to the original takes the tune up a couple notches while making it upbeat and the perfect evening treat. The synth chords go well with the original melody and help spice up the track a bit. If you appreciate Khai’s soothing vocals, this version will definitely do them justice. We’re excited to see the young producer getting in his elements, as these remixes keep getting better and better. Keep an eye out for Kidswaste, as he never ceases to provide us with more auditory pleasure.
Flash X (Said The Sky Remix)
Said The Sky always kills it. No matter if it’s with an original, or remix like we have today. His musical ability and knowledge surpasses most producers, which is why ATB tapped this Colorado cat for a remix of “Flash X.” As with many of his tracks, Said The Sky creates a landscape of his unique trap sound, while also brings into play his piano prowess. Emotion is key in his works, and this remix has a ton of feels packed tightly inside it that you experience from beginning to end.
“Flash X” in its new form is a soothing record that has the energy shifted from the “hands-up” style of music, to a much more intimate sound. His composition pierces deep into your soul with mystifying melodies and courageous chords. The introduction is a hit in itself, then moves through short tasteful build into the heart of the song. After the drop, we are met with something that simply can’t be expressed in words. You must lend your ears to this wonderful piece of music, and if you haven’t already ran through Said The Sky’s Soundcloud, then you’re in for something special.
I Can Tell (DEVAULT Remix)
Orange County’s young gun DEVAULT is bringing the heat today with this Music Ninja Premiere. Sage knew he could turn up something sweet by flipping “I Can Tell” by Travis Scott, which is just what he did. His future take on the record features a much lighter, airy sound than the dark and bass driven original. The first minute is a very simple introduction and build that feel much shorter than the actual time allotted. Although this remix is a bit n the shorter end, DEVAULT hits you with a one-two punch of drops with majestic synth work and some clean vocal chops. A lot of the time when future bass producers try to bring that big atmospheric vibe to the track, they fall flat, but DEVAULT was able to not only keep things on the chill, more groovy side, while also making the track have that gigantic feel you look for in festival ready future. For a producer who legally can’t drink yet, I’d say he’s well on his way to establishing himself as someone to keep an eye on this year.
If someone were to send us a message that said that this email contained a tropical house remix of “Lean On” then it would be extremely hard for us to really want to open it. However, an act Campsite Dream that has swayed us in the past as fans, has offered up a new original take on the 2015 classic by Major Lazer, DJ Snake and MØ. After hearing what the Texel producer did, along with a new vocalist, we were fully embracing the tropical vibes. We were forced to admit, Campsite Dream has done it again.
These guys put together a fresh face on a track that has had a seemingly infinite amount of remixes already. Some would say that they were late to the party, but I think Campsite Dream’s timing was great. The fire has died down on the remix front, and they offered a whole different perspective by dishing this one out with a different vocalist, and keeping things as original as possible. Epic Amsterdam put this one out, however it can’t be found in digital stores. Stream on Soundcloud, or Spotify, or maybe check around the web for a download. You might just find something!
