[House] Bat For Lashes – Sunday Love (Icarus Remix)

Icarus
Bat For Lashes
Sunday Love (Icarus Remix)

Icarus is one of the most impressive up and coming producer duos you will currently find dishing out tracks. They recently came out with an EP with some remixes, and now they’re already back with another single, a remix of Bat For Lashes‘ “Sunday Love.”

The indie pop single was an astonishing record that Bat For Lashes has unleashed a video for, as well as played at Coachella this year. Now we have a deep, brooding flip of the song that will have clubs everywhere on their feet and dancing. Icarus keeps the dark vibe of the original, but manages to make their version one that anybody can groove to. They started with the alluring vocal and managed to create a web of tones and melodies that grip your ears and never let go. Check out the stream of the remix and stay tuned for when it’s available to the public.

[Electronic] Vincent Coleman – Little Eyes [zacheser Remix]

zacheser
Vincent Coleman
Little Eyes (zacheser Remix)

We first stumbled upon rising D.C. based producer zacheser back in April when his debut original record “Skippy” sailed smoothly onto our radar. The young artist’s latest sees him tackling the remix game with a beautiful, melodic revision of Vincent Coleman‘s “Little Eyes”. Utilizing a foundation of housey roots, disco influences and unsyncopated ensemble rhythms, zacheser paints an addictive soundscape that pulls its listener into a tranquil flow state of aural consumption; while staying true to Vincent Coleman’s balmy original.

About zacheser’s remix, Coleman remarks: “DC producer zacheser is such a talented individual & I’ve been a fan of his for a while now. I reached out to him to do a remix and he surpassed my expectations, creating this new vibe to “Little Eyes” that still plucks at your heart strings but also gets your feet moving through an easy going atmosphere of grooving synths and consistent percussion.” I don’t think we could have said it any more eloquently. Enjoy zacheser’s “Little Eyes” remix above, and be on the lookout for more from the busy artiste in the near future.

[House] Twenty One Pilots – Stressed Out (Action 52 Remix)

Twenty One Pilots
Stressed Out (Action 52 Remix)

To be quite honest, I’m anything but stressed out listening to this latest flip from Denver-based Action 52. In fact, the only thing I’m really feeling is the need to lace up some dancing shoes and cut up a mean rug. This isn’t a new phenomenon experienced while listening to these guys’ tunes. In fact, it’s pretty much to be expected at this point.

Following up on a string of tasty g-house remixes, these two stepped away from cutting up legendary hip hop acts like Ludacris, Kanye West, and Missy Elliot to cross over into the alternative realm, dialing up one dancy-as-hell interpretation of Twenty One Pilot’s “Stressed Out.”

With some strong nu disco vibes, Action 52 brings some serious dance floor flavor to what once was a somewhat somber song. Yet, as much as the mood has changed, enough elements of the original are in place to make even the most devout Twenty One Pilots’ fans to nod their head, shake their hips, and tap their feet.

O R I O N – Gold Dust ft. Cammie Robinson

This song is from a little while ago, but it was new to us and instantly caught our ears. O R I O N put together a beautiful brain-melter with “Gold Dust”, and the sparse, but angelic vocals of Cammie Robinson are the icing on the cake. The innate feeling of escapism creeps out throughout the tune, and you’ll want to go explore the world as it plays. Enjoy this one on a bright and day. You’ll feel absolutely wonderful.

SWIMS is an exciting new duo that combines the best of trap, R&B, and electronic music into a breezy and ethereal creation.

Soak this one in with a special someone tonight.

midnight – Native America (feat. The Internet)

The combination of midnight and The Internet is impossible to be apathetic about. Touching on the marred past of the United States, these talented people describe the constant push for the best life available in a seductive fashion that gives the message a new appearance. We’ve been hooked on midnight ever since his XXI Labors EP, and seeing him work with The Internet to deliver such a powerful message only solidifies our admiration of his work. Find some time to really sit and reflect on these lyrics.

Goldlink – Unique (Louis Futon Remix)

This one is simply fun. That’s no surprise, coming from Louis Futon. He decided to return to his earlier remix roots by flipping this Goldlink and Anderson Paak original into absolutely irresistible scorcher of a dance tune. We’re not even sure what the best part of it is, but there is one thing we know for sure. It’s ALL great. Kick off the shift into warm weather with this one.

The Geek x Vrv – Coming Up’ Feat Kellylee Evans & Atom

So much soul. The Geek x Vrv never fails to bring out the best funk, hip-hop, and soul crossovers with their material, and “Coming Up” is a vibrant new addition to their stellar sound. Featuring a fourth of C2C and the striking singing of Kellylee Evans, this song triumphs on its 90s rap atmosphere and style that’s revamped and repurposed into a more modern sound. You can’t NOT bob your head. We’re making sure to keep the double negative there just so you know we MEAN it. Throw this tune on when you just want to groove.

Saturday Selection Vol. 8

Saturday Selection

Long weekends are way more exciting than they should be. That’s alright though, because we’re back with more tunes from this week! And what a week it was. May has been an absolutely absurd month of quality releases. Let’s hope it stays this way for a while. Enjoy!

Brandon Locher – Slow Steps

As life rushes around and flies by, stress can pile up without you even noticing. Take some time to alleviate it with the newest ambient tune from Brandon Locher. The warmth of “Slow Steps” juggles an ominous, yet comforting atmosphere with an orchestral presence to give the tune a movie score feel. You’ll feel immersed into a different world as soon as you hit play. Given the chance, that’s all we really want to do at a certain point, so enjoy this one when you’re feeling the need to hit the reset button after a long week.

Manila Killa – Youth (Feat. Satica)

Manila Killa has always managed to create music that instantly improves your day. Between Hotel Garuda and this solo project, he never loses his stride, and the Satica-featuring “Youth” adds another definitive tune to his arsenal. With so many variations of pop music, it gets a little strenuous to pin down an exact style for it, but we wouldn’t want to do that anyway. What we do know is the approach Manila Killa and Moving Castle are taking is equally accessible and compelling, marking a shift into a new wave of genre blending.


e

EMBRZ – Breathe

After what seemed like a long silence, EMBRZ returned to our SoundCloud feed five months ago with the beautiful “Home.” Now we have the equitably gorgeous “Breathe” gracing our ears. Shifting from his usual beat-driven and chilled-out creations, this Irish producer breaks out into his own take on deep house. There’s more to “Breath” than what that genre usually entails, and a major part of that lies with Pat Byrne’s vocals. Taking a path of four on the floor mixed with somber synths may be a switch up for EMBRZ, but he’s demonstrated that he can create something magnificent no matter the style.

Jorja Smith – Where Did I Go?

Following up the massive hit that is “Blue Lights,” Jorja Smith is back with a reflective and soulful mindset. “Where Did I Go?” exercises restraint production-wise to allow Jorja’s vocals to serenade us into a calm demeanor while her lyrics express a sense of vulnerability coupled with contemplation. Without any hesitation, we can say that Jorja Smith deserves all of your attention and then some. Even with only two (known) songs released at the moment, enough statements have been made with this pair of stellar tunes to merit Jorja as a potential breakout artist for this year. We’ll just have to wait and see!

Crywolf – Slow Burn (Elènne Remix)

This remix gave us shivers. Not only from the already emotional Crywolf lyrics, but also from the careful and calculated transformation that Elénne was sure to masterfully orchestrate. “Cataclasm” was an amazing album from front to back, so reshaping and providing a new context for it is a tall order. Elénne is more than qualified to tackle “Slow Burn,” and we got this wonderful remix as a result. Whether or not you were planning on experiencing a cascade of feelings today, listening to this amazing rendition of Crywolf will do it to you. Enjoy that. It’s a good thing.
