[Melodic House] Racing Glaciers – Animal (Evan Gartner Remix)

Racing Glaciers
Animal (Evan Gartner Remix)

After a largely successful remix of The Chainsmokers‘ “Kanye,” Evan Gartner continues his mesh of pop, tropical, and melodic house with a laidback remix of Racing Glaciers‘ “Animal.” This an inspired calm within this new tune, and the warm piano chords gently balance against the equally light percussion, allowing the vocals to really drive up the emotional value. There’s a fine line when tackling simplicity, and Evan has developed a definitive, but effective sound that catches your ear and gives you a chance to really feel something between the notes. Overall it’s a great tune, and Evan Gartner has been consistently putting out some swell new material. Grab the free download through Facebook here.

[Event Review] CRSSD Festival – San Diego, 3/14-15


As festival season is upon us, many festival go-ers are itching to go to Coachella, especially when talking about the perfect California weather. Goldenvoice, hosts of Coachella, and FNGRS CRSSD have teamed up to create CRSSD Festival, a solution for those who can’t make it to the more high-profile festivals but still want to get a taste of the all-around chill California vibe. With that said, CRSSD festival was the perfect portrayal of sunny San Diego and what it represents.

The first ever CRSSD fest took place in the Waterfront Park from March 14 and 15, and featured a lineup with big names like Chromeo, Odesza, Flight Facilities and Empire of the Sun. While these unique electronic acts headlined the main stage a.k.a “Ocean View Live”, what stuck out the most to us was “The Palms” stage, which was decorated to fit a more laid-back and tropical vibe. Ranging from nu-disco to tropical house, the stage features some of the frontrunners of the dance scene, including names like Bakermat, Thomas Jack, Bixel Boys, Giraffage and Kaytranada. The middle stage, which was named “City Steps”, featured some heavyhitting house acts that span from future bass to G-House, notably Amtrac, Tensnake, James Murphy and Simian Mobile Disco.


Wrote A Song About You (Kaytranada Edition)

Being that it was a debut festival, CRSSD fest did a phenomenal job of planning and set up. With KCRW Music Director Jason Bentley hosting the festival and filling in between sets with the crowd’s favorite music, there was never a dull moment at the park. Unlike some other major festivals, the Waterfront Park was the perfect size venue for CRSSD fest. The three stages were all easily reachable from one end to another, without overshadowing each other.

Now onto the stars of the show. The best acts on Saturday were undoubtedly Kaytranada and Giraffage. With back to back sets at “The Palms” stage, the two talented artists brought the house down with their immensely high energy performances. From the future bounce mastermind to the quirky creative genius, the two spun tune after tune that got the crowd going nuts. Empire of the Sun also put out an epic performance with their signature glamorous set up with stage dancers. There was no better way to close out the night after a long day of sweating and dancing.

[Smooth] Trey Songz – Na Na (Cowp Remix)

Trey Songz
Na Na (Cowp Remix)

Cowp may not be a familiar name to you, but he certainly has a developed sound not unlike a majority of producers with a larger following. His most recent remix treatment covers Trey Songz‘ “Na Na,” and he flips the DJ Mustard helmed hit into his own (and honestly much more fitting) creation. Cowp’s version is stripped down to essentials and sprinkles the vocals along the sprightly instrumental without any clashing elements and has an overall nice balance. This is one of those cases where the remix transcends the original, and Cowp yet again has shown himself capable of providing a stellar remix like he has for well over a year now. Be sure to catch his previous remix of Portugal The Man’s “Purple Yellow Red and Blue” and support his latest above!
