Throw Some D's (LUCA LUSH & Dirty Chocolate Remix)
alaya issue 2 is here and two of the bigger names associated with the rapidly growing label banded together to totally reshape the classic (Let’s be honest here) “Throw Some D’s” by Rich Boy. LUCA LUSH and Dirty Chocolate pitched down the original vocals and proceed to flesh out their huge remix with hint of vocoder, video game style synths, and bass so big that it might just break your car if you bump it hard enough. These two have no shortage of jams, and seeing them put together something as big as this has us hoping they’ll be working on a project together soon. This is just a taste of what the second alaya compilation has to offer, so check out the rest of the stellar tunes and grab your copy of the whole thing here!
Boaz Van De Beatz
Guappa (ft. Mr. Polska & RiFF RAFF) [G-Buck Remix]
G-Buck comes strong with some jungle terror meets trap fusion in his new remix. Philadelphia’s burrito loving wild child steps up to “Guappa” by Boaz Van De Beatz, Mr. Polska and RiFF RAFF and blasts it out of the park.
In going back and forth between the hardstyle like energy and the cut time, G-Buck manages the intensity well, while also keeping it at a high degree throughout. That is why this is one track that anybody who’s looking to turn things up needs. As one of the up and coming studs, G-Buck doesn’t disappoint with this quality freebie.
Surely locked and loaded with more, G-Buck is a cat to keep your eye on. He’s already had releases with Mad Decent, Dim Mak and Main Course and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The man has got some serious skills and he’s not afraid to show ‘em; so if you get a chance to see him live, do it!
snøw (Myles Travitz Remix)
Some say music cures the soul, and this track perfectly exemplifies that. Put down whatever you’re doing, and listen to this wonderful tune. We guarantee it’ll brighten your day. Listen as the talented producer from North Carolina, Myles Travitz, put his spin on the hit track “Snow” by LA-based pop group Machineheart. Transforming the beautifully crafted original into a heavier hitting electronic indie pop goodness, Myles Travitz created this incredibly catchy tune you simply can’t get enough of. The crisp vocals fuel the emotionally-driven tune and the bold synth takes the uplifting vibe to a whole ‘nother level.
Make sure to grab a free download here. With numerous remixes in his repertoire, Myles Travitz is somebody you wouldn’t want to miss out on. We are excited to see what else he has to offer.
Timeless (Tchami Remix)
Fresh off tearing up his set at Ultra last week, Parisian producer Tchami returned yesterday with another remix and it’s, unsurprisingly, another instant hit for the quickly ascending talent. This time around, Tchami takes on “Timeless,” Italian vocalist Caroline Koch‘s debut English single. Koch’s self-described “deep pop” vocals prove the ideal canvas for Tchami as he creates a dynamic build into a bass-driven future house cadence. All the moving parts in this one make for a listen equally enjoyable for relaxation and the dance floor. Tchami’s remix will be featured on Caroline Koch’s upcoming “Timeless” remix EP, due out April 13th on Dirty Soul Records, and comes as an instant download with the iTunes pre-order.
Part Of (Space Maverick Remix)
Some combinations of genres were simply separated at birth. Indie and disco have, time and time again, created some phenomenal pairings, and Space Maverick‘s rendition of COURTS‘ “Part Of” continues this trend proudly. With funky basslines, bright synths and grooves galore, this remix is kicking off your pool party whether you like it or not. Don’t be afraid to bust out the umbrella drinks, because it’s basically a guarantee that you’ll be soaking up the sun with this fun tune. Meet your funk quota for the day and enjoy your Monday with the help of Space Maverick!
What do you get when you mix vocals from an Azerbaijan folk song, Beastie Boys sample, and live violin? An eclectic mix of genres and a neat group called Skymatic.

Try Me (Midas Hutch Remix)
Whether you’re heading to work or school, Monday mornings can be tough to get through. For us, music has always been the key to jump starting the week and combatting the mundanity that every day life can present. With that in mind, we’re excited to be premiering a brand new tune from producer Midas Hutch, aka FS Green, that promises to get you dancing regardless of your current state of mind. Taking on Detroit emcee Dej Loaf‘s radio hit, “Try Me,” Midas Hutch injects a retro-inspired electro funk. The Dutch producer, whose name you may recognize from his work with Major Lazer, employs a soulful disco backdrop through out adding a vocoder effect on Loaf’s vocals for an addicting chorus. Dej Loaf’s verses float over the old-school backdrop making for a listening experience that is both chill and downright groovy. Hit play above and get down with the get down.
