DJEMBA DJEMBA x London Future
Fire To The Room
Dare You 2 Move (Djemba Djemba Remix)
Pioneering producer Djemba Djemba‘s certainly in a giving mood today bringing us two new releases along with an announcement that he will be supporting RL Grime for a leg of his US tour in February. His collaboration with London Future, “Fire To The Room,” has been floating around in his live and recorded sets making it a particularly anticipated release, and rightfully so–it’s an enormous tune that explodes into a warped synth progression bringing some rare, much needed Monday evening turn up. Enjoy this one above along with his trippy remix of Destructo‘s “Dare You 2 Move” and head over to Bandcamp to purchase “Fire To The Room.”
T.I. & Young Thug
About Da $ (Kaytra Remix)
Young Thug has had an absolutely ridiculous year rising from obscurity to one of the most talked about and controversial artists in hip-hop. Thug tends to be a polarizing figure, but it’s hard to deny the addicting nature of his music. Regardless, the Atlanta emcee’s wild, melodic flows lend themselves perfectly to electronic remixes. Canadian producer Kaytranda, who has had a spectacular year himself, is the latest to take on a Thugger hit with spectacular results. Choosing one of Thug’s catchiest tunes, the T.I.-featuring “About Da Money,” Kaytra minimizes the instrumentation of the original replacing it with a jazzy bounce and keeping the vocals in tact. Perhaps the most compelling part of this re-work comes around the 3:30 mark when it goes full instrumental introducing energetic percussion that creates a supreme groove. Peep this one above–we’re excited to hear what 2015 has in store for both of these rising stars.
THE DOORS X PEACE FROG
Made on the same block as Jim Morrison’s last LA residence, and released on Jim’s birthday (12/8), Bobby Nourmand is making damn sure to give some praise to one of the people who inspired him the most, and he’s doing so with a deep house interpretation of this legendary track from The Doors.
Blood in the streets in the town of New Haven
Blood stains the roofs and the palm trees of Venice
Blood in my love in the terrible summer
Bloody red sun of fantastic L.A.
Nourmand let the lyrics more so than the music be his focus for this chilling remix, using their ominous message to craft a dark and cavernous soundscape. The synth structure is deep and surging, pairing perfectly with the heavy bassline and echoing snare slaps in a way that intensely engages the listener throughout.
This tune is a free download on Bobby Nourmand’s soundcloud page. Make sure to head over there, follow him, then snag an MP3 for your personal collection.
With You (Jai Wolf Remix)
Having a lousy day? Struggling to find motivation? This magical track will get you going like no other. NY-based producer Jai Wolf just released this Dirty South remix titled “With You”, and being that it’s different than his other work, it’s still refreshing and addicting. The epic synthy intro that eventually replaces the beat drop immediately catches our attention. The synthwaves are bold and catchy, and are the perfect addition to the new style of music Jai Wolf is swaying towards. The subtle vocals combined with a warm, welcoming vibe almost resemble the sound of Porter Robinson.
The talented producer definitely deserves more attention after this epic remix. Check him out on his soundcloud and grab a free download via his Facebook page here. We’re expecting big moves from Jai Wolf soon!
Big Girls Cry (ODESZA Remix)
Please, for the sake of making this day an even more incredible one, stop what you are doing and pay attention to what we have for you ninjas today. Any time we come across the name ‘ODESZA‘ we already know that we are about to experience something of epic proportions. In fact, ‘epic’ might not even be the right word to describe such beauty. Today, ODESZA unleashed their latest remix and this time they decided to take on the majestic wonders of the beautiful Sia and her song, “Big Girls Cry”. Filled with every Odesza-esque element, transcending frequencies, and ethereal vibes, these guys continue to push their sound to new levels and create something entirely refreshing. With its ambient resonance and spectacular sound design, ODESZA elevates our minds and takes us to our own peaceful place while Sia serenades us with her enchanting voice. You won’t be able to listen to this without escaping reality because you’ll be floating along these celestial beats that carry your soul from one cosmo to the next.
This might be the best Friday we have had in a good minute, so kick back, relax, and glide along with ODESZA for the rest of the day.
Girls (MOORS Remix)
Arterial (Moors Remix)
LA hip-hop duo MOORS emerged earlier this year with the release of their self-titled EP, a creative project full of hazy production and introspective lyricism. Aside from their originals, MOORS have also shown a knack for remixes with wavy, genre-bending takes on BATHS and James Vincent McMorrow, who they joined for a leg of his recent US tour. Earlier this week, emcee Keith Stanfield and producer HH dropped off an official remix for another of our favorite emerging artists, Slow Magic. Taking probably the catchiest song from Slow Magic’s recent album in “Girls,” HH creates the perfectly warped loop over which Keith, also a professional actor, displays some theatrical, storytelling bars adding a different kind of depth to the original. Give this dope cut a spin above along with another remix they dropped this week of Lusine‘s “Arterial.”
P.S. You can check out our recent exclusive interviews with MOORS and Slow Magic at those links.
Yo ninjas! This week has been way too long, but TYBG (please click here for Urban Dictionary definition) because it’s FINALLY Friday!

If you’re ready to trade in your work attire for something smooth, sexy, and sleek then do us all a favor and treat yourself already! Grab a beer or 6 – who cares it’s Fridayyyyyy! So get those speakers out and bump those rumps.
