The Way I Feel (Recycle Culture's Slow Emotion Reel)
One of the greatest parts of this blogging gig is virtual crate digging on Soundcloud for hours and hours trying to find the gems of the Internet. This here is a perfect example of something you have to earn to post. Recycle Culture and Doss are both known in smaller producer circles, however you’d be hard-pressed to see a guy walking down the street wearing their merchandise. That being said, the two are insanely talented and deserve all the love they can get. Doss produced “The Way I Feel” back in the spring and it did relatively well on its own, however Recycle Culture has picked it up and turned it into an astonishingly beautiful record. We as bloggers use the term “chill” a lot to describe music from all sound spectrums, however this remix is the absolutely perfect embodiment of what the word chill truly represents. This is the kind of track you can feel yourself melt into without a care in the world.
Sleepless (Jonathan Kane Remix)
The artist formerly known as Shreddie Mercury has struck gold again. Now known as Jonathan Kane, the soundscaper hailing from Missouri has been seeking to reinvent his brand of music, but he has not forsaken his godlike skills in creating gorgeous melodies, as we can see here on his Cazzette remix. “Sleepless” has been remixed to death in recent weeks, however none can create quite the emotional landscape the lyrics portray like Kane. In what seems like a lost track of Porter Robinson’s “Worlds”, Kane takes the track into his own hands and creates absolute magic with it.
Strobe (Prince Fox 15k Private Stock Edit Pack)
There are a few certainties in this crazy trip we call life: death, taxes, and that Prince Fox is the future of electronic music. Now to us, “Strobe” is one of the most sacred compositions ever constructed; any remix or mashup is ungodly yet we still see hundreds being released each year. I’d say the only reason I even gave this one a look is because it was done by Prince Fox so I trust the quality, and quality it is. You may think you’ve heard Strobe every which way: progressive house, dubstep, nightcore, any genre under the sun. And even if there are several future bass remixes out in the market, none can come close to Fox’s effort. What this NYC producer has done is recreate one of the most gorgeous melodies to ever grace our beloved world and add even more to it. Don’t think of this as a deadmau5 remix, think of it as what Joel could have accomplished when he first created this track five years ago.
It's Time (Matoma Tropical Remix)
We’re not running short on tropical house remixes by any means this weekend so let’s just keep churning them out with Matoma’s newest effort, his own rendition of Imagine Dragons’ “It’s Time”. Good Imagine Dragons remixes are too few and far between however, when one off them strikes gold, it’s an absolute treasure. Matoma, as you know, is one of many Norwegian producers to try their hand at the tropical vibe and he does it extremely well, producing his own gorgeous melodies that will leave you with a smile on your face long after the song has ended.
Every beatmaker worth their salt has at least sampled Biggie at one point in their career. It’s a completely different story when one goes above and beyond and creates an entire instrumental around a track, which is exactly what Flamingosis did with “Juicy”. We think you’ll find the redesigned beat to be much more jazzy, which is definitely an interesting take on a classic. The original is textbook hip-hop flaunting so we think this more refined, exotic beat fits the lyric material perfectly, but you be the judge. What do you think?
Chandelier (Addal Edit) ***FREE DOWNLOAD***
You’re not a real music blog until you post hundreds and hundred of Sia tracks, let’s keep that going tonight. There’s no denying that the Aussie vixen is having the best year of her career however it’s all too easy for the new listener to assume that Sia was born for the Top 40. If you are really trying to get into Sia; we urge you to dig into her earlier indie works, they are are sensational. That being said, “Chandelier” is the talk of the town and therefore has received its own fair share of remix treatment. After combing through the haystack, we have found this gem by Addal. Stepping outside of genre lines and instead going for the more emotional, cinematic approach, this remix by the Frenchman showcases Sia’s true vocal talent and changes the mood from Top 40 radio hit about partying to an intimate record about partying.
no type (clbts remix)
After taking the game by storm this summer with the release of their debut single “No Flex Zone,” Rae Sremmurd recently teamed up with Mike WiLL Made It to unleash a follow-up titled “No Type.” While the verdict is still out on whether the duo can replicate the success of their first hit, it seems as if at least one producer has taken notice of their latest effort. Given that remixes of “No Flex Zone” have become rampant over the past few months, we’re almost relieved that CLBTS decided to take a different approach with the group’s second single. By raising the pitch on the vocals and adding in some polished synths and dainty piano work, CLBTS manages to craft an ultimately dreamy soundscape that will certainly leave you feeling some type of way.
Download the track above, and be on the lookout for more from the mysterious producer in the near future.
