Yours (Philip George Remix)
With glowing, honeyed vocals from a singer/songwriter’s original piece of work, we always get overly excited with high hopes of a remix package to follow. That’s exactly what we have today, featuring a delightful remix of Ella Henderson’s “Yours,” which comes off her debut album, Chapter One.
Focusing in on the legato vocals from this supremely gifted artist, Philip George has taken the piano-driven ballad out of the concert halls and into the club with this sultry interpretation. The dancefloor friendly melody carresses the smooth house bassline and kicks, creating the perfect tune to get the crowd moving. In addition, the use of a repeating vocal sample accentuates the energy of the track expertly, ensuring an invigorating vibe throughout.
Philip George now joins Tobtok and Patrick Hagenaar on this remix package, all delivering quality takes on Ella’s stunning vocals. While you can only enjoy this tune here on TMN and on Soundcloud right now, we highly encourage you to pre-order the album by clicking here.
Today just seems to be like the type of day where all we want to do is listen to some down tempo music and let those chilly vibes permeate our bodies. Helping us turn down this evening is Y2K and Honest and their chill trap rendition of an old time favorite, “Funeral” by Band of Horses. As soon as we heard that famous mellow guitar intro, we instantly glued our ears to our headphones in order to let the retrograde ambiance settle our anxious nerves. Slowing down the initial tempo, y2k and Honest amplify this track with subtle atmospheric elements, eerie synths, and top it off by pitching the vocals down to a heavy, deep resonance. We just fell even more in love with Band of Horses, y2k, and Honest, so make sure you prepare for a good old fashioned throwback sensation and cop your free download in the mean time.
Sleepless (Hotel Garuda & Thero Remix)
What happens when indie dance meets tropical house? The answer lies in this Cazzette remix by house specialists Hotel Garuda, which consists of Manila Killa & Candle Weather, and Thero. The electronic trio’s ever-changing sound is what catches our attention, and their true talent shines through on this track. The original vocal sample is used to drive the tune, accompanied by bold drum beats and tropical synth. The killer sax melody that comes in after definitely stole the spotlight for this track, which also marks Thero’s signature sound. The tropical approach to this tune seems so organic without being overdone. Kudos to Hotel Garuda and Thero for being able to collaborate on this feel-good track.
Stay tuned for more from these talented musicians! We are definitely expecting big moves from them in 2015.
Sun City- Paralyse (Samuel Proffitt Remix)
Since his debut back in July Samuel Proffitt, has strategically taken himself off the music radar so he can spend more time figuring out the direction in which he wants to take his sound. After “Sladky” hit the internet, people were struck with emotion-evoking frequencies that helped tell Samuel’s story in a much more melodic way. We here at TMN instantly wanted to experience more of Samuel Proffitt’s unique music because, again, it resonated something entirely new with us.
After a long 4 months of silence, Samuel Proffitt is back and this time with a remix of Sun City’s, “Paralyse”. The Australian artists really took off this year with this song, so Samuel decided to turn this uplifting, dreamy track into a much more smooth, harmonic wonder. Filled with intricate percussive elements, delicate builds, and elongated synths, Samuel Proffitt creates a symphony of ethereal vibes that make us feel at peace. This is easily one of the most atmospheric remixes we have heard in a very long time. If this is the type of vibe we should expect from him, then we can’t wait to see what he has in store for us in the next year. So let this one chill your bones and move your soul, ninjas, because you’re about to transcend into a universal realm full of celestial bliss.
Supernatural (Pomo Remix)
We always get real eager when a new Pomo tune drops, and the Canadian producer kills it with his latest, a remix of AlunaGeorge‘s “Supernatural”. The re-work starts off with subtle static sounds combined with Kaytranada-esque intro instrumentation (a fellow HW&W artist). As Aluna’s vocals come in, a funky bassline emerges with another catchy synth melody to create some groovy goodness. The original track is stripped down to the bare bone and, when Pomo’s signature elements are incorporated, the end result is a tune so addicting that we just can’t get enough of it.
It’s barely been a month since the release of Pomo’s stellar debut EP, The Other Day, but we’re already eager for more. His releases guarantee quality music, and we are definitely excited to see what he has in store for 2015.
Regulate (Destructo & Wax Motif Remix)
Warren G‘s Regulate…G Funk Era album has stood the test of time as a project that helped defined a whole genre along with classics like Dr. Dre‘s The Chronic and Snoop Dogg‘s Dogystyle. Although G-Funk’s prime has passed, it has had a lasting impact not only in hip-hop introducing melodious flows and funky production but also across genres even inspiring the inception of G-House. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the multi-platinum selling classic, Def Jam/Universal put together a re-issue of Regulate…G Funk Era that features 3 EDM remixes of its smooth, timeless title track. It’s only fitting that one of the remixes comes from Australian trap-leaning producer Wax Motif and LA’s own Destructo, who’s recent West Coast EP updates the classic sounds of his home coast. Give Wax and Destructo’s dope take on “Regulate,” which strikes a perfect balance between the original and hard-hitting electronic elements, above.
We’re excited to be giving away a Vinyl and CD of the reissue including the full original album and the remix above along with two more from Jaux and Photek. Enter your email below to enter! We will be accepting participants through next Thursday, 12/18, and the winner will be notified via email the morning of 12/19. If you can’t wait, though, you can also purchase the vinyl/CD/digital version now here.
