Hope your ready for relentless 808′s and Hi-Hats to the face. Trap is taking over the world and were doing everything we can to make that happen as quickly as possible. The first track is an insane remix of Clockwork‘s track “Titan”, Cesqeauxs works wonders with nearly perfect progression. I liked the the original version of “Turbulence”, but this mix from Oh Snap!! has really got me raging face, chopping up the beat at the right times with the classic 808 and Hi-Hat abuse. Lately anything Ryan Hemsworth related has turned to gold and you got Baauer on the remix, nothing more needs to be said. Munchi transforms Naffie’s remix of “Satisfaction” into another instant classic providing an amazing take on this OG anthem. This remix from Oliver Twizt of “Money’ Makin” is one of my favorite tracks released in the last week. Featuring a totally unique approach to this massive track from A-Trak and Dillon Francis, the second drop is just hectic. Iggy Azalea has never sounded like more of a boss. heRobust has BUSTED this one wide open with this masterful rework of “My World”. I’ll let you enjoy the rest on your own, and don’t be afraid to hit “Buy” some of them might even be free. Cheers.

Coming off tremendous success with their last release “Kick Out The Epic Motherfucker” everybody’s favorite Swedes seem to be churning out banger after banger. Dada Life, the dynamic electro house duo is back at it again with their newest single “Feed The Dada”. Just as to be expected, “Feed The Dada” is a hard- hitting electro house tune, which contains, in the duo’s own words “the biggest drop ever”. Also released alongside the original were two spectacular remixes from Dice Motion and Dyro. Dice Motion transforms the track into a heavy dubstep banger with addition of some fierce wobbles and crunchy bass while Dyro incorporates some impeccable synth work putting a fresh spin on the already hectic original. All of these tracks will definitely make your Monday a little more bananas so make sure to give them all a listen!
And if all that wasn’t enough, the Swedes also dropped the official video for the track as well so be sure to check that out here.
Ah, the last weekend of August. Summer seems to be the hardest season to bid farewell to, and who to better articulate that melancholy feeling than Lana Del Rey? But if you find her version of “Summertime Sadness” to be too somber and brooding, there’s an alternative. On this remix, Berlin’s Hannes Fischer brightens up the mood a little, allowing in more light while keeping the gloomy clouds at bay, for a simpler, orchestral-pop vibe. That’s not to say it is devoid of yearning romanticism — that’s a Lana trademark, after all — there’s just less of it, which is hardly a bad thing.
Listen to the original and the remix below. “Summertime Sadness” is off Lana Del Rey’s album Born To Die. Check out more of Hannes Fischer’s music, including remixes of Bon Iver, Feist, Adele, and Little Dragon, on his Soundcloud page.

While West Coast producer TJR will forever be best known for bringing “Funky Vodka” to the world (you know, that track that dominated the Beatport charts for weeks on end), his consistent releases of ass-shaking tech house under Chris Lake’sRising Music label are out to prove that he’s no one-hit wonder. Though he hails from the US, his brand of seriously bouncy house music has made him a huge name here in the clubbing scene of Melbourne, and on behalf of my nation I’d like to adopt him as an honourary Australian. He continues his string of funky productions with “Same Old Fool,” which comes with a remix package courtesy of QiDD, Son!k andZoolanda, all adding their own spin on things while maintaining that infectious bouncy vibe. The Son!k remix is definitely the pick of the bunch for me because I know that synth would absolutely light Melbourne dancefloors on fire. That’s just me being patriotic though. Stream the rest of the EP below and pick them up on Beatport.
We recently introduced you guys to PrototypeRaptor, a producer who’s beginning to make waves with his refreshing, yet complex style of electro house and dubstep. Continuing with this nautical theme, he continues to show his versatility with this fun remix of Enya’s “Orinoco Flow,” a tune that will no doubt bring back nostalgic memories for all you 90′s kids out there. Released in celebration of hitting the 3,000-fan mark on Facebook, PrototypeRaptor adds plenty of his signature fidget basslines and 8-bit elements, but still preserves the serenity and playfulness of the original. This one is definitely a guilty pleasure, with just enough bass to justify rocking an Enya song in your playlist, but still showing enough restraint to say that it’s definitely not taking itself too seriously. So grab the free download below. Go on, we know you want to.
Former Concretes singer Victoria Bergsman, AKA the excellent Taken By Trees, has remixed her own track “Dreams” as well as reworking the video. This refix has a gentle, slightly ghostly dub reggae vibe, which the clip accompanies perfectly, featuring locals dancing and some beautiful yet disorienting shots of seahorses and whales. If you’re keen on Taken By Trees’ latest output (and why wouldn’t you be?), then you’ll be thrilled to hear that her album Other Worlds is out on October 2nd via Secretly Canadian. Stream the original and dub versions of “Dreams” below.
