Some Minds (feat. Andrew Wyatt) (Camikaze Bootleg Remix)
The unexpected direction of Flume’s ‘Some Minds’ brought with it amazement, intrigue, and a hell of a lot of artists taking a crack at a remix. Despite the numerous re-interpretations floating around the net, an iconic track like this creates an opportunity for previously unknown talent to get noticed with an effort that breaks through the noise of similar sounding production. On that note, our attention is drawn towards a fresh up-and-comer in Perth-based Camikaze, with a bootleg that speaks volumes about his future potential in the electronic music game.
While some artists would be tempted to merely take the vocals and drown it out with their own sounds, the beauty here lies in the respect paid to the original composition, allowing the natural flow of the track to dictate the right time for showcasing creative flair. It’s a mature way to approach the complexity of the original, while still providing a generous serving of slick bass that ignites our desire to hear more. This is definitely not one to sleep on, so we’ll be keeping a watchful eye out for what comes next.
Disco Fries Feat. Hope Murphy
Born Ready (Halogen Remix)
The Disco Fries brought Halogen forth for an official remix of their track “Born Ready.” Released through Liftoff Recordings, the newly reformatted “Born Ready” is an upbeat progressive house track whose energy will brighten up your day in an instant. Of course, Hope Murphy‘s vocal is recycled, but Halogen plays with it to bring another dimension to the sound. Halogen goes for the more dance-able side of prog, as opposed to the more melodic driven, simplified side. The strong mix of piano with bass makes this a memorable record that should be on every Summer playlist from here on out. If you would like to check out the original, iTunes has it up for grabs.
Allies For Everyone
All Gone (Kodomo Remix)
Sometimes with the copious amounts of music being released digitally nowadays through an exponential number of online retailers and publications -maybe even all too often- a sonically textured soundscape which may require a bit more active listening gets passed over for a quick and catchy melody highlighting whichever genre-du-jour may be the hippest to write about at the moment. However, some tunes break through the mold and command attention through their own set of aural rules. The latest from genre-skirting electronic producer Kodomo falls into such a category, finding the New York based artist taking Allies For Everyone‘s (who premiered his own remix of his single “Bunker” with us last month) latest single “All Gone” into his own realm of silky, two-step melodica. From the careful droning of delicate drums to precisely pinned piano, and the reverb laden use of AFE’s original vocal track; Kodomo’s crafted a completely alternate view into “All Gone”. Deep and rich t extures are both built and torn down all at once by Kodomo, encasing a hermetic heart at its his revision’s core. For our seasoned electronic listeners, and fans of Boards of Canada, early Emancipator and Baths we’re highly recommending Kodomo’s remix to cut right through the Summer heat. Get more of Allies For Everyone from his busy Soundcloud here, and check out Kodomo’s “All Gone” remix above.
Uncertain (Action 52 Remix)
We all need some Action 52 every once in a while. After last appearing here on TMN with their G-House remix of Missy Elliot’s “Lose Control”, the Denver house duo stops by once again with a deep club edit of another tune we loved, Soma’s “Uncertain”. Action 52 lays down a thick bassline and thumping groove on top of the original to create a tune which both stays true to the original and is something completely its own. Check it out above and get into that weekend dance mode.

Years & Years
Desire (Gryffin Remix)
NYC-based Gryffin has been following quite the trajectory over the past year, dropping chart-smashing, play count-racking, blogosphere-adoring track after track. With remixes of acts like Maroon 5, Tove Lo, and Banks, he’s amassed an eye-opening, collective 50 million plays. Pretty insane, right?
Today’s release brings us a glimpse at his interpretation of Years & Years‘ “Desire,” which will be placed on the oft-discussed We Are Your Friends official soundtrack. With iconic vocals in place, this interpretation is masterfully layered with a driving piano melody, smooth bassline, pronounced kick, and soaring synths. It carries itself into multiple venues, placing perfectly in the club, by the pool, our in front of a massive festival crowds.
For us, this song continues to solidify this youngster’s spot in some of the best up-and-coming talent. We’re sure you’ll agree, and join us in waiting not-so-patiently for his next release.
