Gotta Have You (The Twelves Italo Remix)
Who’s ready to suit up and head out for a night on the town? If you raised your hand, then you need to drop whatever you’re doing an take a gander at this 80′s-inspired synth-heavy remix of Madison’s “Gotta Have You.”
As if extracted from an earlier time filled with big hair and excessive cocaine abuse (or so we’ve heard), this interpretation of NYC artist Madison has us shaking and grooving all over the room. The original version of “Gotta Have You” boasted a well-defined guitar riff – the kind that has you wanting to wail on out notes on across imaginary frets in your car – along with grainy vocals distorted to give the perfect amount of edge and pop all wrapped into a perfect, pretty package.
The Twelves, whom claim one of our favorite remixes of all time (hint: it involves Two Door Cinema Club), have taken this garage-rock tune and spun it into a dancefloor pleaser with it’s 80′s synth pop soundscape. The bass line is light and twangy, the percussion is pleasantly simulated, and the vocal sampling is damn near perfect.
All in all, this tune is a stellar piece of remix perfection, and ideal for your first round of shots this weekend.
MYNGA feat. Cosmo Klein- Back Home (Bender Remix)
Trying to get through the mid-week struggle? Here’s a tune that’ll help you. Jersey-based producer Bender just remixed the popular track by MYNGA, featuring vocals from Cosmo Klein. While the original is a tropical masterpiece and crowd-pleaser, Bender’s take on the song adds the deep factor to it. Cosmo Klein’s falsetto-filled vocals steal the spotlight as usual, which gives off a positive vibe with such soulful and powerful maneuvers. The saxophone also helps bring up the tropical sense of the track, making it an overall pleasant and enjoyable listen. Check out these artists as they are ones to watch for the come up of tropical music. You don’t want to miss out!
Settle Down (Sweater Beats Redux)
Sweater Beats took to social media this morning to drop off a brand new remix closing out what could not have been a better year for the young NYC-based producer. Taking on Kimbra‘s “Settle Down,” Sweater Beats displays his impressive bass-driven, R&B-influenced style to perfection. By leaving the vocals from the original in tact, he manages to build a dynamic, constantly evolving re-imagination of the original without taking away from Kimbra’s powerful voice. Give this one a listen above and make sure to check out Sweater Beat’s Cloud City EP if you haven’t already. 2015 is going to be a huge year for SB, and the Huh, What & Where collective more broadly.
Fall Out Boy
Centuries (Gazzo Remix)
Drop what you are doing, grab your phone, and text Santa with this exact message: “DEAR SANTA – FALL OUT BOY & GAZZO – MAKE IT HAPPEN OR RUDOLPH WON’T BE GUIDING YOUR SLEIGH TONIGHT”. A little hostility gets him in the Christmas spirit so why not threaten him this year? Helping us realize just how naughty we have been is New Jersey producer, Gazzo, and his sensational official remix of Fall Out Boy’s newest song, “Centuries”. Filled with heavy percussion, trap-style synth breakdowns, and powerful progressive elements, Gazzo transforms the new FOB song into the song of the century (pun intended). This production is unlike anything we’ve heard from Gazzo, but we can genuinely say that this type of sound is something we can all get down to. Now that we’ve listened to this a million times through, we’re just about ready to dive back into the year 2004 and binge on our favorite bands from back in the day. So check your lists twice because Santa (AKA Gazzo in this case) is about to give you the present you’ve been wanting your whole life.
While there’s no release date set at the moment, you can expect this little beauty to drop sometime early next year.
Blind Heart (Prince Fox Remix)
Following the success of his last hit remix “Stay With Me”, Prince Fox has been on a roll with producing dope tunes. Coming out with yet another Cazzette remix, the NY-based producer is gaining popularity in an unbelievable pace. “Blind Heart”, similar to his “Sleepless” remix, exemplifies Prince Fox’s signature post-trap rendition to a rework and it gets your adrenaline going like no other. Featuring vocal samples from UK singer The High, he replaces the original house drop with an epic synthwave melody that is extremely catchy and addicting. The heavy hitting drums just further accentuates the post-trap approach of the tune.
With an eargasmic sound resembling Flume, Prince Fox is set to take over the genre with these eye-opening jams. You don’t want to miss out on any new features by the talented artist, so stay tuned!
Chemicals (Addal Remix)
Here’s a feel-good tune for all of you who are stressed out with exams and work. Italian producer Addal released this remix of a Sirena tune titled “Chemicals”, and it hits us right in the feels. Addal is known for making quality music that possesses a heavy emotional appeal. Stripping down Sirena’s track and adding in a downtempo drumbeat, Addal creates a tune so relaxing and wonderful it’ll make you ponder life. A series of beautiful piano cadences start off the track, followed by some muted guitar melodies. These maneuvers all come together and help convey a powerful effect to all the listeners. No matter where you are, or what you’re doing, take a minute and listen to this track. Addal never disappoints.
Mr G Sings
The Caged Bird Sings (Maywald Remix)
Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with shades of deeper meaning. – Maya Angelou
Last month, Mr G Sings dropped a lovely tribute to not only one of the most prolific poets of all time, but also one of the most prolific people of all time. With her unfortunate passing earlier this year, it was a perfect time to pay respects to Miss Maya Angelou, and “The Caged Bird Sings” does so with effortless beauty.
Today we have the privilege of brightening up your Monday morning with a glowing tropical house remix from German deep house producer Maywald. Taking sections of the original vocals and the iconic whistling from the original, this remixer has re-crafted this pop tune into something perfect for some much needed pool time, a long drive, or even grooving around in your bathroom while you’re getting ready to head out for the morning.
We’re offering up the premiere of the stream today, but you can snag this tomorrow for your personal collection via Ultra Records.
