Help Our Souls (Urban Contact Remix)
Sony Music has backed an official remix for the Austrian producers Urban Contact. Their indie dance take on “Help Our Souls” by the fellow countryman Nihils brings along with it heavy use of acoustic instruments, giving it an organic sound that one can imagine live. Just have a listen for yourself and close your eyes. Urban Contact keep a similar sound to the original in that regard, however they up the energy and add in a slight, tasteful tinge of disco that peaks through the composition now and again. Both the original and this remix are must hear tracks for music lovers. If you’d like to purchase the song, you may do so here.
Maybe (Empia Remix)
With this week heralding news of the imminent release of Carmada’s ‘Maybe’ remix EP, the artists listed in the package promise an arsenal of heavy-hitting mixes designed to outdo the intensity of the original, which burst onto the scene 6 months ago. Australia’s top names in the bass game, Slumberjack and Elk Road, have already proven their menacing intentions with the reveal of their collaborative efforts earlier this week. Though not a part of the official release, fellow Aussie producer Empia has thrown his hat in the ring with an interpretation of a different kind, opting for a melodic route over the face-melting ambition the others may bring. While the structure sits quite similar to the pacing of the original, his signature future style layered throughout this track will likely be a refreshing reprieve from the impending onslaught of bass that is waiting to be unleashed in only a few days’ time.

U Don't Like Me (Bad Royale Remix)
Bad Royale have to be some of the most underrated cats in the bass music game. Hailing from San Diego, these four dudes come bringing some of the best party music out there. Their hybrid style comes out big in their remix of “U Don’t Like Me” by Diplo and Lil Jon. They bring no mercy with their energetic productions that would ravage any event they found themselves in. For being an act that is in the shadows, their work is on par with some of the greats in the game that already have fame and success. Their time is coming, and we can only prepare ourselves for the madness that is to come. If you’re unfamiliar, their Soundcloud is a hub of top shelf quality, so you best get to running through their discography.
Bow Chicka Wow Wow (feat. Lil Wayne) (PLS&TY Remix)
PLS&TY has everyone’s manners getting on point. The Palm Beach producer brings nothing but dope music to the table, which has people pleasantly asking for me, and thanking him for his goods along the way. His latest piece is a remix of Mike Posner and Lil Wayne. “Bow Chicka Wow Wow” goes future in this flip, which doesn’t stray too far away causing hip-hop heads and R&B lovers to disagree with the statement that this track is a major piece of work. Although it’s a less seductive style, it still a track that can get itself on those love making playlists fans are on the lookout for. This style of seduction is a little bit more in your face, so people might actually enjoy this jam better. Last thing you need to know is that it has been released as a free download!
Ninjas, you know what time it is?
We think it’s safe to say that the weekend is officially here, and it’s about the time to press play, throw your hands up to the sky, and yell “fuck this shit, I’m out.” Maybe do that last part in your head though, as we want you to still have a job come Monday morning.

All Hands On Deck (Giraffage remix)
Bay Area producer, Giraffage, has already worked his magic on a number of R&B classics proving to be one of the most agile, novel electronic producers in the space. Naturally, contemporary R&B artists are taking notice with the latest being Tinashe, who enlisted him to remix her already electronic-leaning “All Hands On Deck.” Giraffage departs slightly from his generally playful approach in favor of club-ready garage vibe flexing his versatility with phenomenal results. As always, the talented up ‘n comer seamlessly toes the line between tugging at our heart strings and making us dance. Give this one a listen above and, if you haven’t already, check out our interview with Giraffage.
All We Do (Steve James Remix)
Oh Wonder has become one of our favorite’s acts to see blossom over the past couple of months. Their combination of female and male vocal counterparts and monthly release schedule have kept the flow of music in just the right amount, but every release seems to be more passionate than its predecessor (even when we think this is not possible). The indie-electronic pair’s single “All We Do” has received its fair share of remixes, but 16-year-old producer Steve James just blew them all out of the water with his rework of the emotional single.
Despite his youth, Steve James has only been shooting upward with his aggressive yet uplifting remixes of ZHU, Dillon Francis, and many more, but this remix of Oh Wonder by the Pittsburgh producer may be his most gorgeous masterpiece to date. Providing a sentimental piano line to add depth to duo’s heart-wrenching croons, James pours empathy, grief, fervor, and love into a synth toppling that could be defined progressive house and progressive trance. Regardless of the label, Steve James’s remix resembles the early works of Arty and Armin van Buuren who pioneered the progressive trance/progressive house movements.
His remix of “All We Do” is only available for free download for 24 hours so be sure to grab your own copy here before tomorrow at noon.
