[Progressive House] Chromeo – Jealous (I Ain’t With It) (The Chainsmokers Remix)

Jealous (I Ain't With It) (The Chainsmokers Remix)

After successfully creating what might be the fastest growing selfie movement since the highly infectious Harlem Shake, The Chainsmokers are undeniably contaminating us all with a heavy dose of feel good music. Not too long ago, Alex Pall and Drew Taggart released their remix of Chromeo’s song, “Jealous (I Ain’t With It)” and have already given us a reason to jive the day away. For a brief moment, it felt as if the two were starting to stray away from the emotive side of production and more into the realm of the #SELFIE limelight. Luckily, this Chromeo remix proves that The Chainsmokers are not just in it for their 15 minutes of fame.

Whenever Chromeo is introduced into the picture, it is almost inevitable that we will encounter a new kind of soulful funk to groove to. The Chainsmokers, however, decided to approach this remix at a different angle of production in which they took the original upbeat tempo and transformed it into a harmonious house anthem that will instantly become the next big crowd pleaser.

With a dramatic piano intro to set the mood, the song effortlessly transitions from a smooth, slow build into a melodic blend of heavy kicks, soulful synths, and a stellar bpm to get everyone out on the dance floor.

The Chainsmokers are currently on their #SELFIE tour and have been taking dance music to levels that not even Avicii can reach. Be sure to stay up to date with their music and tour and check out where they’ll be playing next – just make sure to take as many selfies as you can in the mean-time!

We think so. Which is why we are more than more than happy to get you started on soundtrack part. Ya know, to get your mind off the lack of sleep and into the positive sunshiny, groove of spring.

Jakwob – Fade (Kicks N Lick Remix) [TMN PREMIERE]

Jakwob
Fade (Kicks N Lick Remix)

Our favorite bass heavy duo, Andy Joplin and Jerrod Jordan (AKA Kicks n Licks) are back with another smooth, melodic remix. This time around, these two beatsmiths took on the stunning, drum-centric tune from Jakwob, which features fluttering vocals from Maiday.

Once again we’re shown their ability to craft gorgeous melodies that fit perfectly with the vocals. Combining a slow, build featuring intense, melodic synths with some heavy bass drops and electro style grit, “Fade” is given a whole new soundscape. While it is a departure from the original pop tune, the lyrics hold just enough to bridge the gap.

These two have quite a few shows coming up, so make sure you head to their facebook to see if they’re coming to your tow.

[House] Duke Dumont feat. Jax Jones – I Got U (Jonas Rathsman Remix)

Track Premiere: Duke Dumont feat. Jax Jones
I Got U (Jonas Rathsman Remix)

Let’s face it. Duke Dumont’s uber-addictive single “I Got U” was bound to father a slew of remixes from the moment it began receiving its due diligence in live sets from the world’s most influential dance artists. So when we heard about an entire EP being put out behind the clubby house tune, we crossed our fingers hoping that a suitable slate of talented producers would be there to move “I Got U” under their vision. We were more than pleased with the way remix duties were handed out, especially when we discovered Swedish artist Jonas Rathsman was amongst those commissioned. We last featured Rathsman on a stunning original track “I Feel What I Feel” late last year, which was put out on tastemaking dance imprint French Express and in the time since, the Swedish producer has remained relatively quiet except for a few remixes. Suffice it to say, when we got a chance to glue our ears to his trademark brand of dreamy house and disko painted over the Duke’s dance-floor hit, we couldn’t help but be thrilled. Jonas executes his version masterfully, using much of the original stems as its core but infuses a healthy bit of atmospheric tinge throughout. If you’re feeling this one like we were, be sure to look out for the entire EP, featuring remixes by TMN favorites MK, Tensnake, Bondax, and High Contrast. Get shaking a little early today and stream Rathsman’s remix above.

[Tropical/Chill/House] Israel Kamakawiwo’ole – Somewhere Over The Rainbow (Thomas Jack Remix)

Israel Kamakawiwo'ole
Somewhere Over The Rainbow (Thomas Jack Remix)

We’re not sure what’s in the water Down Under, but a healthy dose of this writer’s favorite electronic music has continuously been drifting out of our favorite island. Thomas Jack, a producer with whom the TMN faithful should by now be readily aware of, has an absurd knack for remolding classic songs into house rhythms as warm as a Hawaiian breeze, and a tune we previously thought to be mostly untouchable from a remix perspective -Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s  beautiful take on “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”- benefits greatly from Jack’s deft electronic comprehension. As with much of his catalog, the groove leans on a pan-flute played melody as its heart, but a fusion of  jazzy instrumentals steeped with deep house undertones have set this one apart from past remixes. Thomas Jack’s take on “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” may be best heard beach side with one of those huge, fruit-bearing tropical drinks in one hand and well… whatever it is needs to be in the other.
