How Ya Feelin (Aylen Trap Edit)
Usually trap edits of singles from headliner acts are watered down, cut time versions of the song. However, with Aylen‘s new edit for TJR‘s “How Ya Feelin” he doesn’t take the easy route. In fact, he doesn’t even keep things in the trap realm entirely. We have the honor of premiering his interpretation of the Spinnin Records original right here, right now.
With what Aylen did, we wouldn’t be surprised if this gets snagged as an official release; it’s just that good. The twists and turns he took from the original to here are stunning, especially with the short-lived breakbeat phrase that is quite a surprise (sorry, spoiler). Then it’s back into the trapstyle where turning up is mandatory. As many of Aylen’s track are, this one is being pushed as a free download, so hop on it if your ears are liking what they hear.
Rio (Subtropics Remix)
Netsky‘s “Rio” is one of the funnest drum & bass tracks to listen to as its tropical nature is like a ray of sunshine. Now, we have another version of the song from Subtropics, who was commissioned for an official flip of the early July single. In keeping with the Summer setting, Subtropics delivers a highly appropriate moombah turnaround that keeps a lot of the original feeling, but takes it and makes it a bit more groovy. You just can’t beat groove in the midtempo range, especially when the sound is acoustically driven with life-like percussion and juicy horns. This is one of the most tasteful remixes we’ve heard this year, and one of the best this Summer. Get the good vibrations rolling with the new “Rio” and do your friends a favor by sharing this with them!
Alina Baraz & Galimatias
Pretty Thoughts (FKJ Remix)
As with every great release, Alina Baraz & Galimatias‘s majestic Urban Flora EP has been receiving the official remix treatment from some of the most well-selected producers out–Pomo‘s take on “Fantasy” really struck a chord with the TMN staff and Stwo‘s rendition of “Maybe” was right at the top of our most recent Chill Dojo. Last night, we got another flawless re-work courtesy FKJ of Parisian label Roche Musique.
FKJ, aka French Kiwi Juice, has found a distinct niche in the realm of blissful electronic and his signature style couldn’t fit the airy vocals of Baraz on “Pretty Thoughts” any better. With its playful bounce and FKJ’s distinct warped, groovy guitar, this track oozes sunshine equally equipped to end a long day or start a new one.
Sebastian Carter ft. Aela Kae
Fascination (Kulkid Remix)
It’s been a hot couple of months since we last featured anything from French dance producer Kulkid, and while we’re a few days late to the party on this one, it was without a doubt that we needed to share his latest remix, this one of Sebastian Carter (a TMN staple) & Aela Kae‘s collaboration “Fascination”, with our Ninja faithful. In honor of celebrating their first anniversary, Crosswalk Records in conjunction with Believe Recordings, have released a compilation including past acts from the label and new comers alike; including this one from Kulkid. Kulkid molds his sound onto Sebastian Carter’s original beautifully, focusing on a chunky analogue bassline to highlight Aela Kae’s soaring reverberations and plenty of ambient pad work as fuel. Crosswalk’s complete anniversary compilation, which features more cuts from the likes of Ofenbach, , Lost Frequencies, MÖWE, FDVM and more, can be purchased on iTunes here, but for now you can cozy up to Kulkid’s “Fascination” remix above.
It’s a little later than usual, so let’s get jump started. This week has had a load of free downloads to choose from, but we narrowed it down to twelve exceptional ones that we felt we needed to share with you today. Whether you’re looking for big name tracks, or hidden gems, we got you here. From Disco Fries 1986 bootleg to the Snails and HeRobust VIP to NYMZ remix “Still In Love,” you will be partying hard. Try not to go too hard, though. It may be tough with how amazing these tracks are, but we’ll let you decide if they tickle your fancy as well. Rage on, and #danceirresponsibly.

New Americana (Brooks Brown Remix)
Brooks Brown is one of the hottest up and coming producers in the game. If you don’t know him already, then you will in a moment. Not only will you know him, but you will love him, for his work sounds like it is coming from a veteran in the scene. Recently, the youngster did a remix of “New Americana” by Halsey that is to die for. He never manages to disappoint, whether it’s with originals or remixes; he always exceeds expectation time and time again. With this remix he stays with his future sound that he continues to hone. It’s a powerfully emotional record that is short and sweet as can be. Only thing is, there is no download for it, so you’re gonna have to stream it a billion times, which won’t be a problem.
BBHMM (PatrickReza Remix)
The #WompSquad leader just added another strong remix to his catalog. PatrickReza is back with a remix of Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money,” although the producer switched up the title in acronym form. This house bump he’s been on has been magical, and we’re glad it hasn’t stopped. As with the other tracks, Patrick brings his dirty fusion style that will bring all sorts of house heads together. This is certainly one of the better remixes of the Rihanna single, which isn’t really all that surprising given Patrick’s talent. Although I can’t speak for all the ninja’s, I’d fair to say it’s my personal favorite out of the bunch of interpretations that have come out. Want the track but don’t want to pay anything? It’s all good, because this flip is a freebie.
