Paris’ own Wielki just dropped a huge one. Like, literally it’s just coming to the world now through this premiere. It’s always a privilege to partner up with an amazing talent, pushing a quality record. Wielki is accustomed to creating great work, but the official remix of “Lordly” by Feder is a real treat.
The seven minute remix is as good as it is lengthy. There is no moment when you lose the feeling of entertainment it brings you from the very start. It’s deep, driving grooves are inescapably infectious, making this one especially potent in a club atmosphere. Wielki manages to recycle several parts of the original, while also keeping the song fresh from its first counterpart. “Lordly” goes from a dark, poppy sensation to a thrilling techno delicacy.
Stop For Nothing (SACHI Remix)
Auckland’s own SACHI, nominated for this year’s Best Breakthrough Act for the New Zealand Music Awards, have an official remix for courtship.‘s “Stop For Nothing.” Remixes for the single are being released one by one, and SACHI’s is next.
With their interpretation, the duo bring a unique style of future to the table that heavily takes from jersey club. The result is an immensely fun tune that makes for good listening no matter where you find yourself. Body Language’s take on “Stop For Nothing” was a great club rendition, but we think this one may just be a bit more exciting and special. SACHI show why they are among the best in their own country, as well as establish why they shouldn’t be looked over on a worldwide scale. Stream their remix today, and be on the lookout for the full remix EP to drop!
Australian duo Kllo have been on our radar ever since the release of their gorgeous 2014 debut, Cusp, which found them nestled squarely between cozy R&B and dance music. After spending much of 2015 touring behind that successful project, they returned this year with the Well Worn EP. Their latest work saw the vocalist/production team of Chloe Kaul and Simon Lam further refine their sound delving deeper into various electronic influences. Of the 5 tracks, “Bolide” has resonated the most with fans and for good reason. With a pulsing bass line, subtly-crafted percussion and gliding vocals, it’s a track that envelopes the listener with emotion.
As they continue building momentum, Kllo have commissioned legendary UK producer Lone to take on “Bolide” with phenomenal results. The original’s ongoing vocal chop feeds perfectly into Lone’s distinctive blend of hip-hop and house stylings. While the remix is similarly atmospheric, it employs furious percussion and layered pads–taking it from downtempo to club-ready without sacrificing the most enticing elements.
Give this one a listen above and make sure to check out the Well Worn EP if you haven’t yet. Kllo are currently on the road touring with Rufus Du Sol and NAO–check out dates after the jump! Continue reading
Waterfalls (Dear David Remix)
If a song gets premiered by Pete Tong on BBC Radio One, chances are its good. Dear David had that opportunity with his remix of Roby’s “Waterfalls” and we have to say, it is indeed a great record.
This isn’t Dear David’s first official remix, and it probably won’t be his last. You know a song’s good when it passes the time quickly, without you realizing just how much time you spent. David’s tune comes in just under six and a half minutes, but those minutes fly by thanks to his infectious grooves and intoxicating basslines. His Soundcloud lists this tracks as “truly house” and we’d have to agree. Not only does it pay homage to classic sounds, it brings new flash and flare to the genre to create something completely memorable.
Innerbloom (Lane 8 Remix)
Despite being released nearly a year ago (ages in Internet time!), RÜFÜS DU SOL‘s Bloom remains one of the TMN Staff’s most listened to projects. That impressive staying power has only been multiplied by the steady stream of quality remixes it has spawned. The latest comes from fellow Ninja favorite Lane 8, taking on the album’s epic “Innerbloom.” In typical fashion, Lane 8 crafts an atmospheric, melodic tune drawing out the original’s most irresistible parts while leaving the stunning vocals in tact. Although it employs a more standard four-on-the-floor approach, this rendition certainly gives What So Not‘s incredible “Innerbloom” remix a run for its money. Get lost in this blissful tune above.
Over Soon (Super Duper Remix)
Whenever a highly anticipated album drops, you can always expect a slew of unofficial edits and remixes to begin showing up within the first week or so of the release. What you don’t always expect, however, is that many of these will actually be quality releases instead of simply a chance to capitalize on SEO. Super Duper is here to put any and all notion of that mess to bed with an absolutely stunning edit of 22, A Million‘s first track, “22 (OVER S∞∞N)”.
This remix may seem on the shorter side (clocking in at a concise 2:28), but it’s calculated build to final minute sets the stage for an incredible resolution and rendition of an incredible song. Having the foresight to instantaneously create such a stark production speaks to the capability and innovation of Super Duper, and, luckily for us, he’s got plenty of new music on the way. What’s wild is this edit was JUST FOR FUN. However you choose to approach unofficial remixes, always know that there will be diamonds in the rough, and Super Duper is certainly proving that notion right while doing the original justice with a powerful and striking interpretation. Be sure to check out Super Duper’s recent original, “Angela“, also!
Days Of Lavender (AMTRAC REMIX)
On July 8th of this year, Promises Ltd. released their self-titled debut EP. Since then, they have been quiet on the front of originals, however they’ve dropped two official remixes, one of which comes from the Kentucky producer AMTRAC.
When I think Kentucky, I don’t think electronic music, but AMTRAC is certainly shifting that notion. With his remix he took on the single “Days Of Lavender” and turned it out into a deep, minimalist house record. From start to finish this single is as tasteful as it gets. AMTRAC’s melodic take on the indie-electronic original is quite different, but there’s still a hint of the original’s tone within. It’s a masterful remix that we can’t get enough of, and we think you’ll be on the same boat once you give it a listen.
