Closer ft. Halsey (Viceroy Remix)
Summer time’s favorite producer Viceroy is back with another amazing remix. We know, you don’t want to hear another damn flip of The Chainsmokers x Halsey’s “Closer.” We didn’t either. But, we did see Viceroy came out with one, and we had to let our guard down. We were not disappointed.
From the start we get hit with out of the box samples that bring us back to some of our favorite records, along with an intoxicating percussive groove. Pleasant piano chords and funky guitar riffs also contribute to the strong introduction that holds your attention without quivering. At no moment do you want to skip this one. The intro builds into the drop where Viceroy takes us on a bustling breakbeat ride that is simply magnificent. Viceroy has put out some of our favorite tracks, so it’s no surprise he swayed us on this “Closer” remix. Get it for free today!
Innocent (KEFF Remix)
KEFF‘s first foray into production after a series of must-hear mixes comes to us in the form of a delicately crafted rendition of “Innocent” by Hundred Waters. The splendor in the gentle atmosphere surrounding the bright vocals radiates with warmth and an underlying sensation of tranquility as the song progresses, yet there’s an unsettling message buried deep within.
The premiere with NEST HQ describes a perspective of a broken trust and extreme measures taken to achieve a clean conscious, and that’s the sort of context shift and imaginative transformation of a song’s original tone KEFF is already bringing to the table. Something of this gravity is a stark and intriguing beginning to KEFF’s journey as an artist, and the capability to understand and process a serious subject into a song as striking as this truly makes a statement. There won’t be any fluff from KEFF in the future. Be sure to grab the free download of this remix here.
The Dumbing Down Of Love (COFRESI Remix)
When you think electronic music in Chicago, you think house music. That’s not the case with the Windy City’s COFRESi, who’s bringing some quality beats to the table that aren’t bumping four-to-the-floor. COFRESi has been pushing boundary-breaking tunes for a couple years now, and today we’re happy to present to you another high-quality tune in today’s premiere. That tune is COFRESi’s remix of Imogen Heap‘s “The Dumbing Down of Love.”
COFRESi has several unreleased remixes out that you’ll get to hear over the next few months, but today you get an incredible take on a classic record from Imogen Heap and Guy Sigsworth’s project Frou Frou. The song’s ethereal sound is easy on the ears, while COFRESi’s cool grooves are easy on the body. He uses his unique sound design and expert songwriting abilities to put together one of the dopest remixes of the year. It’s really that good. One of the best things about it is that it’s available as a free download. Do yourself a favor, don’t sleep on it.
In the past month, the Russian artist Constant Z has dropped two killer tracks. One is an original, and the other is a remix that he cooked up for a competition. The first, “Tell Me” dropped around a month ago, and the other was recently uploaded for Sam Feldt’s “Summer On You” through Spinnin Deep.
After coming across “Tell Me” with its dark, laidback sound, I had to hear more Constant Z. His melodies struck deep and I knew this couldn’t be his only great track. To my surprise, an even newer track was uploaded, that being the previously mentioned remix. With the remix, Constant Z implements a similar style, focusing on a bassline and top lead to satisfy listeners ears. The polyphonic rhythms interplay incredibly, and since there’s only a handful, you’re able to memorize each with perfection. Which is good and bad, because one of these tracks will be playing in your head as you go about your day. If it’s not one, it’s the other.

All of us (Eden Prince Remix)
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
Found (Model 86 Remix)
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.
