The crazy cat Kat Krazy was commissioned for an official remix of the single “Oh My Love” by The Score. Fans of the original, who also like dance music, will be ecstatic, because Kat Krazy did justice to the original. A bouncy fusion of electro and progressive is what we get with the result of the London producer changing the make-up of the alternative original. Kat closes the gap between festival and club music, making this remix a particularly powerful tool for DJs out there. Fans are looking for records that are tons of fun, and this has more than plenty of fun embedded within. For now, it’s only available for stream, however, keep an eye out as a download/purchase is coming soon.
Throttle‘s original single “Together,” with David Spekter was a progressive house track we could get behind. Now, four remixes of that record have come out officially from PRMD Music/ICONS Music by way of Together (The Remixes) EP. Hellberg starts things off with his classic progressive take. The Los Angeles representative Templeton gets deep with his minimal interpretation, which we covered more in depth last week, and Spenda C gets wild with a remix that jumps all over the sound map. Shanahan brings the festival friendly sound to the remix, and closes out the EP with a bang. Each record brings its own flavor to the table, chalking this up as a project that has it all, unless you’re exclusively a basshead. For those of you looking to bag the full EP, Beatport has you covered.

We start things off with a slower jam, then quickly pick up the pace to get the Friday night juices flowing hard. There were so many good records that we felt we needed to share with you for your festivities that we added in a bonus thirteenth track for all you bass heads out there who need a little dubstep; you can thank Ray Volpe for that one. As always, enjoy yourself tonight and make sure to #danceirresponsibly.

Belgian electro-rockers Soulwax established themselves as legends in electronic music over ten years ago just as the genre hit its stride in the mainstream. As of late, though, there have been scarce sitings of the pioneers–the most recent appearance being their fantastic remix of Jungle‘s “Julia.” It comes as little surprise that Tame Impala‘s phenomenal latest album Currents catalyzed new material from the trio who released a rendition of the hit single “Let it Happen” a couple days ago.
Initially, Soulwax draw the listener in with an arpeggiated backdrop keeping Kevin Parker’s vocals in-tact before dropping in a groovy bass line with steady, tribal-leaning percussion to match. As the song hits the 4-minute mark, the song’s interlude and distinct guitar riff perfectly accompany the rhythmic backdrop which takes over the remainder while interweaving various elements of the original. Running over 9-minutes, it’s the type of track that requires patience that’s well worth it–continually growing in appeal with every listen. There seem to be some hints on their social media pages and hopefully the inspiration Soulwax has found in these recent tracks results in some new original music. In the meantime, let this one sink in.
It’s really not surprising that Illenium was commissioned to do an official remix for one of the best in the game–Kaskade. Taking on “Disarm You” featuring Ilsey, Illenium absolutely nailed it. Illenium keeps things uber chill with his signature melodic sound. He’s managed to carve a style that is exclusive to him, while also not pigeonholing himself into the ever-growing “future” corner. He takes his style different places and BPMs, much like he did here, and the result is as beautiful as ever. He also keeps things good for your wallet by releasing his work for free.
Ever since we were introduced to Big Wild, he’s continued to impress with his fearlessness to explore different soundscapes and styles. As he’s continued to rise, gaining fans at an unprecedented rate and touring with both Odesza and GriZ, his appetite for musical experimentation only seems to have grown–staying true to his moniker. His latest remix dropped a little over a week ago and marks his third chart-topping Hype M track. Unexpectedly taking on Hundred Waters‘ heart-warming acapella track “Show Me Love,” Big Wild proves his versatility keeping the relaxing vibe with an ambient backdrop and incredible usage of the vocal sample. Adding to that aura, Big Wild introduces slow-paced percussion and soaring backing synths that bolster, rather than completely change, the original’s allure.
