You’ve probably heard the name Dirty South before, but maybe not the smaller artist Eden Prince. A remix of the Dirty South original, “All of us” was just dropped by this up-and-comer. We were impressed. Eden Prince seems to have an excellent handle on the intricacies of house music but doesn’t take us too far into the realm tech-house. Instead he walks the line with club sounds and pop elements. Check it out, we should be seeing more from Eden Prince soon.
J. F. July‘s debut single “Found” just got remixed by Model 86, and it is some of the most tasteful electronic music we’ve heard in a while. In between July’s smooth vocals and the mellowness of the original track, fellow UK producer Model 86 manages to squeeze in his distinctive production style and turn it up a couple notches.
The wavy arpeggio-driven style is reminiscent of the Flume sound, and the incorporation with crafty samples just makes it twice as catchy. For a producer who is no stranger to experimenting with new sounds, Model 86 is knocking this one out of the ball park. This genre-bending remix will definitely make some waves in the electronic music community, especially in the UK scene.
If you’re feeling this fresh tune as much as we do, make sure to give these guys a follow. You don’t want to miss out on this dream UK connection.
Frequently, artists release polished works of art to minimal fanfare or perhaps a brief smattering of praise. Occasionally, those same overlooked artists are fortunate enough to inspire producers to build on their original pieces, thus propelling them to a wider audience and greater acclaim. The latter scenario may very well be the case in the coming weeks regarding Moonzz.
Electronic songstress Molly Williams a.k.a. .MOONZz. – who gained a fair amount of notoriety for her rendition of Kanye West’s “Wolves” in tandem with KRNE – released her debut EP last week.
While Trust Cycles has yet to made its rounds through the blogosphere, the first hit remix surfaced this week to make a cycle of its own. Whereas the original is an enchanting soundscape, Jeffrey Melvin’s remix follows a grittier electronic melody, heavy on vocal loops, electronic bass, and a signature abstract effect found in other popular tracks like Ganz’ remix of “Man x Woman”.
While Williams’ fanbase will be finding delight in Trust Cycles – which is available on Spotify and Apple Music – fans of Melvv can catch the young producer as he churns out bass-heavy remixes all summer.
Destructo kicks off his two-month Renegade Tour this week at our hometown purveyor of legendary evenings–Beta Nightclub. Before we head out tomorrow night, we have an exclusive sneak peek at an absolutely devastating, hard-as-hell, deep house remix of “Catching Plays.”
This official take comes via Bristol-based Will Clarke and it already has me reminiscing about my younger years, which often times were spent at any number of after hour venues. Utilizing the near horror-movie melody from the original, Clarke twists his interpretation up with a heavy, fuzzy bassline, modal harmonies, synthetic sonority, and effected shuffled hi-hats. Gone are the vocals from Pusha T and Starrah, but in a way that’s very appropriate for the style, and one that will probably find its way into a plethora of Halloween sets in a month and a half’s time.
If you want to catch Will Clarke live, we recommend heading over to his Facebook page to see where he’s at next. If you want to catch Destructo (and some choice friends) live, look no further. We have you covered, just below the YouTube player.

In case you weren’t able to make it out to Randall’s Island for this year’s Electric Zoo, TMN’s got you covered. We were lucky to catch some pretty amazing performances from artists like Getter, Lil Dicky, Louis The Child, Valentino Khan, and many more.
The minute we stepped onto the premise, we were bedazzled by the stages. The Cobra Stage in particular had us in a state of awe, with a design almost unimaginable. Of course, our attention was quickly steered away by the lineup we didn’t want to miss. Getting our day’s fill of bass and hip hop from the Buygore stage from acts like GTA, Borgore, and Juicy J, we then made way to the Riverside stage to catch a vivacious set from Andrew Bayer. We closed out the eventful night at the main stage for a spectacular set from The Chainsmokers, where we enjoyed an array of music from some alternative classics to their charting originals.
As this year’s festival was jam-packed with an assortment of fantastic performances, we thought we’d put together a playlist to highlight a few of our favorites!
KRNE is no stranger to solid remixes. He’s done them before, and he’s going to do them again. With the Oakland producer’s latest, he takes on “Drive” by Jai Wolf and The Chain Gang of 1974. With a tempo and stylistic change, KRNE really did something dope with this one.
For those who don’t know the original, it had a midtempo, French electro style that paid homage to classic records. In steps KRNE to give it the modern future bass flair it so much deserves. He gives the single a bit more oomph and size, making it a record that feels as though it engulfs you, rather than one you are simply listening to. Both drops in this remix are super cool, with rich synth work; but, with the second drop we get a bit more spunk and energy. This is one of those tracks you’ll play from beginning to end without any skips, and chances are you will play it more than once. Stream it today, and make sure to hit up Soundcloud or Spotify to check the full remix EP.
One of our favorite Colorado creators is Dirt Monkey. Recently he released his CHROMA album that featured a collaborative single called “Super Sayain” with Harvey J. Dirty Monkey didn’t stop there as he enlisted a fellow animal loving producer to flip his single into something new. That producer is Wooli, and his remix can be heard for the first time in the dojo with this Music Ninja Premiere.
In its original form, “Super Sayain” was a strong hybrid tune that straddled the fence between trap and dubstep, something Dirt Monkey does often. With Wooli’s take, he keeps some of the trap influences, but brings in a more future driven style to the mix. Airy synth-scapes weaved into the classic vocal chops and subtle wubs make this one a straightforward, yet massive remix. If there was anyone who wasn’t jiving 100% with the more heavy style of the original, then this remix will be perfect for you. It still has that big, encompassing attitude, but the tone of Wooli’s remix is much less in your face. Wooli did an amazing job with this tune, which you can download for free. Chances are, you’re looking forward to more Wooli just as we are!
