Ready Or Not (Kicks N Licks Remix)
As Kicks N Licks get ready to ship out for EDC this year for their first set at the festival, they dropped a new remix that the ninjas are premiering right here, right now. The San Diego duo took on “Ready Or Not” by The Fugees for one of the classiest twerk tracks your ears will experience ever. They also dropped it as a free download, so there’s that.
Kicks N Licks have had their fair share of solid remixes, always giving listeners something a little different each time, but always great. With this remix they start out with almost a tropical trap sound, then they slowly move into a more urban style that takes over, with the initial vibe piercing through the mix occasionally to keep things light. Press play, enjoy; and don’t forget to grab yourself the download before you continue your search for dope tunes.
Let the weekend officially begin! Let the pre-gaming ensue, with partying planned deep in the night. Let your night roll just as the current Friday Party Playlist does, with energy building until its time to close out. We can only hope your night ends just as this does with “No Panties,” too. Before that, you have a whole night to get through, with a whole gang of tunes from artists like Said The Sky, Jantsen with Dirt Monkey, Bad Catholics and Trapzillas. All of these tunes come for free, as usual, but this time tracks have been taken from rosters by Kairos Audio, Buygore, Main Course and CAPS LOCK CREW. #danceirresponsibly

CIRCLES (Official Remix)
Chitown native SD had a breakout year in 2014 with the release of his hit street single, “Circles.” Today the track finally receives the remix treatment, with a refreshing new update courtesy of fellow Windy City resident Smoko Ono and Soulection’s Mr Carmack. Those three names alone should be enough to convince you to give this one a listen. This reinterpretation preserves much of the essence of the original, but it’s further amplified through an ethereal mix of synths that’ll have your head spinning in, well “Circles”. Stream the hypnotic tune above and be on the lookout for more from these promising producers in the near future.
Blue Skies (REVOKE REMIX)
Shining through “Blue Skies” is the Venice producer John Khetchian, also known as REVOKE. Trap is on a lot in the dojo, and every so often there’s a track that really sticks out to us, and this is one of them. REVOKE straight kills it with a huge flip that plays off the festival style, but it doesn’t cheapen itself. Instead, he crafts a juicy treat that you will want to consume over and over again. John is no stranger to producing insane remixes, and with this he lengthens his already strong resume. Lenka and REVOKE make a magical fit together that we’d like to hear more of. “Blue Skies” in its new form will hold us over for a long time, however. Let it do the same for you; click play, and revel in cloud nine.
Some Minds (FT. ANDREW WYATT) (LUCA LUSH REMIX)
Following up on last week’s epic release – which we covered earlier – Luca Lush seems intent on making June his biggest month yet.
Luca’s latest remix, a fresh take on Flume & Andrew Wyatt’s “Some Minds,” was released this afternoon on the heels of his successful Atlas Bound remix.
Spanning five and a half minutes in length, the production is extensive enough to demonstrate an impressively wide array of production techniques. With an inventive introduction, touches of electric keyboard and snare, 8-bit samples, future synth, and an appropriately timed crescendo/diminuendo dynamic scheme, Luca’s remix has a defined and original feel that is worthy of high praise.
While the remix is in and of itself an innovative deviation from the original, Luca is able to also capture what makes Some Minds so impressive by shaping his futuristic creation around the familiar and melodic vocals of Miike Snow front man Andrew Wyatt.
We hope Luca Lush will continue this trend of releasing new music weekly – while we wait on his next great release, enjoy “Some Minds” above.
Wolfback (Lostboy Remix)
As a music blogger, we hear dozens of new songs each day, meticulously sifting through hundreds of pieces of communications that come in each 24-hour period. We’re not going to sugarcoat it, we hear a lot of the same sounds and styles being used, over and over again. Today brings one of those tunes that stands out with a unique identity, as we premiere the first official offering from London-based Lostboy.
Taking a crack at “Wolfback,” from fellow Londoner Findlay, Pete Rycroft (Lostboy) has dialed up one hell of an interpretation. The vocal sampling stands out as a shining star of this remix, using both hums to provide a haunting soundscape, and quick, interspersed chops to serve as an addition to the percussion. The bassline should also be noted, showcasing an aggressive nature that almost reminds us of Tchami or Oliver Heldens, only less commercial.
Rycroft’s background as a classically trained pianist and producer for leading house DJs across Europe are apparent throughout, which end up giving listeners a massive, toothy grin for the full 3:13 ride.
'No Type' Xavier Dunn Cover (Hitimpulse Remix)
Simply having the Xavier Dunn cover of “No Type” by Rae Sremmurd was not enough. Berlin’s own Hitimpulse jumped on our radar with their remix of the cover, which resulted in something spectacular. In using the cover vocal, Hitimpulse were able to craft a more powerfully engaging remix that does without the urban hip-hop feel. It feels like a brand new song, even after the seemingly infinite amount of “No Type” remixes that have already hit the web. Press play, sit back and enjoy the exquisite production. This remix is being offered up as a free download for anyone looking to add this to their collection.
