VÉRITÉ
Strange Enough (Cosmic Quest Remix)

Imagine yourself lying in an open field staring up at the cosmic realm above you. Now take that scenario and imagine yourself levitating up towards the sky only to be consumed by a milky layer of ambient clouds that are aimlessly drifting beneath your floating frame. Doesn’t that just sound like the Utopia we all desire? Often times we come across music that helps inspire this intrinsic line of thinking and we cannot help but emerge ourselves in this lucid, dream-like trance. There aren’t too many artists that make us wish we were wandering about the cosmos, however, those rare entities are out there and we tend to have a knack for finding them.

A few months ago we happened to stumble upon an artist by the name of Cosmic Quest; now if you have a good memory then you might remember the gem we picked up from him and Molly Williams called “Water Winds”. Not only did that song move us like never before, but it opened us up to an entirely new realm of music that we forgot ever existed. After months of fine-tuning his productions, the Carmel Valley chill wave wizard is back with an official remix for the lovely, Vérité and her internet hit, “Strange Enough”. With an atmospheric vibe, a melodic synth progression, reverbed percussion (for a lasting wavey effect), and a layer of chopped vocals, Cosmic Quest sent us straight into the clouds with this one. Just when you think the euphoric sensation ends, he takes us to swoonville with a stunning piano outro that sends chills down your spine and permeates your skin with a refreshing blast of solace. We are so fortunate to be premiering the latest from Cosmic Quest and we look forward for what’s to come for this small town producer because he is about to take the world by his hands and take us all to new heights.

[Chill/House] Alex Wiley – Vibration (Honest Remix)

Alex Wiley
Vibration (Honest Remix)

Holy mackerel did this tune set us off on the correct foot this morning. Arizona repping electronic producer Honest came to us armed with what has been our favorite tune to make its way our of her studio thus far. This time around Honest has tackled  Alex Wiley’s ragga tipping hip-hop groover “Vibration” and has worked it into a sumptuous slice of sophisticated house music. Rather than approaching her take on the tune with a formulaic four-four kick to start things off, Honest rides a wave of filtered pads and vocal chops into a gorgeously arpeggiated lead piano line  before a sampling of staccato synth stabs sidles in through the back door. Further establishing the tune’s laid back but highly danceable vibe is the way Honest has toyed with Wiley’s raspy vocal track and made it sound as if it was made solely for her production to begin with. This one’s got us feeling all kinds of groovy, so do us one better after your listen and grab the free download here in exchange for a Face book “like”.

De Hofnar
Shower (Bootleg)

Well, we have reached that day ninjas…the day where we have to hang up our bathing suits and trade it all in for real clothes because it’s the first day of school (for this ninja, at least) and our Summer is officially over. For those of you who are out of school and don’t really know what the concept of Summer is, well we’re sorry that this day means nothing to you. While you sit there at your 9-5 and we set our alarms to some ambitious hour, just know that in a few months we will understand your pain.

As we prepare for another Monday of monotonous hell, we really need something to wake our spirits and set the tone for our day. We decided to turn to De Hofnar and his latest bootleg of Becky G’s “Shower”. As soon as we heard his version we couldn’t help but feel as if we were driving down Highway 1 with all of our girlfriends and some Starbucks. This Summery, sax-heavy bootleg takes Tropical House to an entirely new level of “FETCH”. Make sure to grab your free download and take these tropical feels with you anywhere and anytime.

[Bass] ZHU – Superfriends (Just A Gent Remix)

ZHU
Superfriends (Just A Gent Remix)

Aussie young gun Just A Gent has been reaping the rewards of his ambition of late, winning accolades, gigs, and a growing fan-base all before his age lets him legally enter a club. The rising producer has set the precedent for all the other aspiring talents out there and continues to push the bar with every new original and big name remix he creates. His latest statement in his own progression comes in the form of this huge take of ZHU’s ‘Superfriends’, and this one is set to cause the biggest stir yet. Preserving the menacing tone of the intensely deep original track, he kicks things up a notch in signature bass-heavy style. It’s genre-bending music at its very best, and exactly what we love about every new release from the surprising young gent.

Up All Night (Slander Remix) [OUT 9/9 ON INSOMNIAC RECORDS]

After a wild weekend of hearing all about everyone’s FYF experiences and suffering a serious case of FOMO (Google it), we have been a bit bummed about not attending this years festivities. After all, what’s a festival without a ninja there to turn things up a notch or two? Now that we’ve recovered from such sadness, we have been listening to some tunes to pick our spirits back up; we’ve currently been stuck on the latest track from heaven trap/deep house duo, Slander. The two producers took on an Arty mainstage feeler, “Up All Night” and ultimately sent us to synth heaven with this remix. With this being their first release off Insomniac Records, Slander has proven that they are about to stir up the dance music community and we’re excited to be apart of the mixture.

1: TURN

2: DOWN

3: FOR

4: WHAT

With that said, we’re off to the store to go get some beer; we’re not turning down for anything tonight.
