Cant Feel My Face Ft. Ian Everson
It won’t be long before Minneapolitans, St. Paulites, and the rest of Minnesotans find an all too familiar second meaning to the line “I Can’t Feel My Face.” Whether or not this stellar remix from Twin City-based producer/DJ had that in mind when he stepped into the studio will remain unknown. What we do know is this – this remix/cover, which was dialed up by Truancy and vocalist Ian Everson, will certainly heat up the dance floor for the coming months, providing not only Minnesota, but the rest of the country with a vehicle to warm themselves up while cutting some rug.
In a city where bass and big drops reign supreme, this up-and-coming producer is being hailed as somewhat of a hometown hero, serving up those who want to populate the early morning windowless warehouses. One listen through this artful house interpretation should have you feeling the movement he’s currently spearheading, by means of a driving kick, funky bassline, enveloping melodies, and those sultry vocals.
As he’s done in his own scene, Truancy (with the help of Ian Anderson) separates himself from the pack of other producers across the globe who took on this wildly popular song. To top it off, this remix is a prelude to something bigger than himself, which will be coming out next week via the charitable music platform, Cadence & Cause.
We suggest you stay tuned and find out what exactly that will be.
Tennessee (Babel Remix)
As we glance back on the greatness that was the weekend, it’s important to have an ample amount of laid back tunes to ease us into the start of the work week. Thankfully, for us, Antwerp-based Babel has his signature “hangover chill” persona all over this brand new remix.
After a few stellar remixes, and an impressive original, this up-and-coming producer has his sight set on a deliciously lush remix of the widely popular “Tennessee.” Taking well-crafted samples of kiiara’s glowing vocals, and key elements from Felix Snow’s original production, Babel has crafted something that pays an artful homage to the original, yet carries through his own distinctive style.
Driven by a gorgeous piano melody, and light, airy percussion, this re-imagination will surely kick your week off properly, as well as find a way into your regular “Chill Out” playlist.
Grab a drink, grab some friends and get ready to let loose tonight. After a long week, you deserve some free time, whether that’s big chilling, or raging your ass off. Let this playlist help to subside the pains and aches of the week. Getter gets things started, and comes back later with his Ookay collab, and alongside those we have new tracks from Wuki, Snavs and Fabian Mazur, Fight Night, Bad Royale and more.

Too Original (Debroka Remix)
One of Atlanta’s most proficient trap lords, Debroka, dished out a remix of Major Lazer‘s record “Too Original.” If you’re pleasing Diplo, you’re doing something right, and so was the case for this cat and this record. Debroka turns things up with a hot production that gets down and dirty with some trapstyle cuts, but also gets buck-wild with hardstyle/jungle-terror sections that shake things up. Although the summer festival season is just about passed, that doesn’t mean anything for Debroka who’s keeping the fire going through Fall and Winter. Expect to hear this one being played out at the numerous remaining festivals that will take place before 2016 rolls around, and don’t be surprised to still hear this when the calendar does flip to next year.
Feel Good (Jonas LR Remix)
When we first consume new material, there’s endless subjectivity that impacts our reaction from personal taste to current mood but, regardless of reason, every week there’s always one or two tracks that get the repeat treatment. Such has been the case with our latest premiere, a remix that we’ve only gotten more excited to share after a couple days of constant listening.
Walking Shapes‘ “Feel Good” was easily one of the catchiest tunes on their acclaimed debut album, Take Come On, proving true to its name–a fantastically cheery indie electronic jam. As part of a 3-track remix EP for the song, the Brooklyn quintet enlisted an unlikely up ‘n comer out of Leeds, Jonas LR, to take on the addicting tune.
The resulting re-imagination takes the song from a summery day to a hazy warehouse party. Jonas LR pairs the original’s near-falsetto vocals with a distinct UK Garage-tinted backdrop creating a few moments during the intro in which lead-singer Nathaniel Hoho’s voice resembles that of Zhu. As the track progresses, though, the listener is continually pulled in by an evolving sound scape that takes advantage of the track’s electronic melodies all the while completely changing the context that surround them. Quick, stuttering percussion and various 8-bit sounds bring a playfulness that, despite the complete make over, in some ways matches the original.
Even though it possesses elements of various emerging styles, this one proves enticing largely because it’s not quite like anything we’ve heard before. If you’re dig this as much as us, definitely check out Jonas LR’s Soundcloud page where he’s already got a few gems posted. The “Feel Good” remixes EP is out now–you can grab a copy here. Also, make sure to check out Walking Shapes at one of their upcoming tour dates with Albert Hammond Jr. of The Strokes, listed below. Continue reading
Break Through the Silence (T-Mass & LZRD Remix)
“Break Through the Silence”, the collaboration between Martin Garrix, Matisse & Sadko was a progressive house track that wasn’t anything crazy, but it was pretty good. When put in trap form by T-Mass and LZRD, things changed. It’s jumped up a few notches to something extraordinary that you want to throw on repeat over and over again. The ninjas have the honor of premiering such a quality remix to you all, which we know you will enjoy. Whether you’re just kicking it with some headphones, DJing a party or you’re at a party, T-Mass and LZRD deliver a track that will come through every time. “Break Through The Silence” is being given out as a free download, so head to this link and grab the single for yourself.
Vigilante (Esparta Remix)
Zardonic is known for his metal infused drum & bass records, so why wouldn’t he get a remix that shares a similar aesthetic? He asked himself that same question and came up with tapping Esparta for an official remix for the Antihero album. As in the past, Esparta fuses rock with electro, conjuring up an explosive track that is borderline brutal.
The new “Vigilante” ditches the breakbeat sketch and implores a four-to-the-floor pattern. In keeping with the heavy style of the original, Esparta pays homage to the sound, however doesn’t rely upon it. His own elements penetrate the composition. If you thought things couldn’t get hard enough, you’ll be surprised with where things go just after the 3:45 mark. September 18th is the release day for the album, but iTunes already has pre-order available along with a few songs that are already purchasable.
