KANYE (Kasum Remix)
There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that what The Chainsmokers have done in the past few years is beyond impressive. Song after song continues to chart on the Hype Machine, and a few have even become mainstays in the pop world. Anytime you have this amount of success, remixes are sure to follow. While some aren’t worth batting an eye at, this Boston-based master of the melodic has dialed up one you’ll surely place in your regular rotation.
With SirenXX’s vocals left very much in-tact, “Kanye” is given a uplifting, near-tropical facelift, focusing on synths that have a steel drum feel. The steady four-to-the-floor beat accentuates the glowing melody and vocal samples expertly, giving a smile-inducing interpretation of this smash hit. And while the original had plenty of oomph, this remix is an energetic thrill ride at a dancefloor-friendly 128 BPM, which is sure to provide some aching legs and tired feet.
While you’re probably no stranger to Kasum, especially if you pay attention to the Hype Machine, take a moment to like this college student’s (that’s right, college student) facebook page.
whatchawannado (coast Remix)
Up and coming producer duo coast just released their red hot remix of a Madeaux track titled “whatchawannado”. Being their first release, this remix is nothing short of amazing and definitely showcases their talent. It takes off with these sharp synths as the intro, and the buildup is shrouded with samples from the original tune. Incorporating these killer synths and trap with post-dubstep elements, the east coast-based duo killed this remix by completely switching up the style of the Madeaux song and making it their own. It is always difficult to add in your own elements while not overdoing it and giving credit to the original, but coast did just that. The complexion of their music goes to show what these guys are capable of creating. We’ll definitely be seeing more of them.
Be sure to check out both Madeaux and coast’s page and you can grab a free download of their brand new remix here.
Hey QT (Blackbird Blackbird Remix)
Blackbird Blackbird has got to be one of most unpredictable producers in the game. Coming out with a remix of this quirky tune titled “Hey QT”, the SF-based musician once again surprises us with his unbelievable talent. The tune is brushed up with a soft trap beat, and the catchy melody is sampled throughout the track for the buildup and the drop. He definitely made this track his own with these complex maneuvers, and we can definitely see this being played in his upcoming shows. Big ups to Blackbird Blackbird and all that he offers to the industry!

Party (Birthday Boy Version)
They say it’s not a “Party” until the Birthday Boy walks in–or at least we think they do. If it’s not a saying yet, then it definitely will be after you feast your ears upon this enticing remix of Beyoncé‘s festive classic from the savvy Canadian up-and-comer. With his flair for crafting bouncy rhythms and infectious melodies that drill themselves into your brain, Birthday Boy turns the funk up to new levels that immediately force your toes to begin tapping uncontrollably. It’s the type of fun, upbeat song that makes you wish you could repeat summer all over again, and though it may be sacrilegious of us to say, we think we prefer this birthday party even more than the original.
Say My Name feat. Zyra (Jai Wolf Remix)[Counter Records]
Hopefully you haven’t grown tired of hearing the million Odesza‘s “Say My Name” remixes out there, but this one is right up there with the best ones. New York-based producer Jai Wolf recently released his take on the popular tune, and let’s just say it’s oh so juicy!
Ranges from melodic dubstep to chill trap, Jai Wolf cleans it up with a slower trap beat, while staying true to the original track by keeping its melody and Zyra’s vocals. It starts off with this deep bass which sets the stage for this banger remix, and when the drop comes, these unique oriental sounding synths take the spotlight. It’s one of those tunes that are so catchy that you can’t get enough of.
Make sure to catch him at his first headlining show for “I’m Shmacked NYC” tomorrow at Stage 48! With so many tricks up his sleeve, Jai Wolf is definitely one of the more exciting artists to watch.
Another month has come and gone and we have to say goodbye to our resident artist Klingande. We enjoyed getting to know this amazing artist a little bit more in our interview, loved the insane mini-mix he threw down, and for a final treat asked him what top 5 songs he has on his mind these days to get down to. His choice of artists is tickling our ears, you might find yourself liking some of these less mainstream artists, lord knows we are enjoying each and every one of them.
I am already jamming to these hot little numbers and I am sure you will be do. Au revoir Klingande, excited to hear more amazing music from you and thanks for being part of the ninja family.

IDFWU (CRVFTSMEN REMIX)
It’s been a hot minute since we’ve posted anything remotely similar to this 808 trap, but this new joint by CRVFTSMEN was far too good to pass up. This Boston-based trio has been making some of the best hip-hop remixes out there for quite some time, however they flew onto everyone’s radar in a hurry with this new Big Sean cut. CRVFTSMEN make their TMN debut today with IDFWU, their latest and greatest remix that is just bursting at the seams with energy. It’s still widely debated in some circles how to properly dance to trap, but I can tell you certainly won’t care when this drops at a club as you hurdle your way to the dancefloor.
