[House/Future] Kayper – Next Lifetime

Next Lifetime

With a veritable slew of carefully crafted, tasteful dance music released just in the last year, it’s pretty easy to see why Kayper has garnered artist support from the likes of The Magician and Blonde, and become one of the hottest properties in club land in the process. We last checked in with the London-bred house slinger on the heels of her Terminal EP released on the rapidly ascending Eton Messy Records, and today she’s back with brand new single “Next Lifetime”. A remix of sorts of Erykah Badu’s congruently named single, “Next Lifetime” rolls out to a spacy trot before delving into a chunky yet meticulous groove that’s been earwormed to us since first listen. It’s not every day a turntablist who’s been in the game over 5 years (check out some of her oldest mixes if you haven’t yet) successfully transitions into full-blown artist with such grace and fluidity, but we’ve quickly learned Kayper may be the exception to many a rule.

About Kayper’s newest record, she remarks: “I heard someone playing Erykah Badu’s “Next Lifetime” in their car at the traffic lights while I was driving through Brixton one day and it reminded me of how much I loved that track and her first album which is what inspired me to do my own updated version as a tribute to one of my favorite artists.” It’s safe to say we think she made a great choice in carrying out this latest tune.

[House] Muneshine – SUNSHINE feat. Grimm (LCAW Remix)

SUNSHINE {feat. Grimm} {LCAW Remix}

German DJ/Producer LCAW brings his remix of “SUNSHINE” to the table by way of a remix EP for the Muneshine original. LCAW is an award winning DJ, so he should know a thing or two about putting his own take on songs by way of mixing, but this time around he gets in the studio to churn out a solid remix that kicks off the remix EP perfectly. His club-centric take on the original, which features the Canadian Grimm, is a bustling work of art that would have been a hit no matter if it was released in the 90’s, 2000’s, now or the future. The Munich music maker managed to create a timeless record that you can sing, and dance along to with ease. Lovers of deep, tech, and the non-festival side of progressive will be ecstatic to hear this interpretation of “Sunshine.”

[House/Big-Room] Adele – Hello (MORTEN Remix)


It’s been over a year since we last checked in with Danish DJ/Producer MORTEN, and in that time since, it’s clear to see the genre-eschewing artist has been evolving and fine-tuning a penchant for club anthems. Most recently coming off of a trap-infused remix for The Stafford Brothers’ Jay Sean and Rick Ross featuring single “When You Feel This,” along with recent entries into the Dim Mak and Armada Records camps; MORTEN returns with a lively club-tipping take on Adele’s world-storming single “Hello”. While in the past we’ve seen a very clear festival brand of EDM and trap records from the Dane, this time around MORTEN dials his sound kit closer towards the U.K. ‘club-house’ sector of dance than we’ve ever seen him and unleashes it all towards a higher, yet still utterly groovy cadence. With MORTEN’s same appeal of festival-sized drops executed with a keen underground sensibility, we’re more than excited to see how the maturing artist continues to push the envelope on his expanding sonic palate. In the mean time, grab the free download here, and stream MORTEN’s “Hello” remix above.

[Ambient-Pop] ON AN ON – Drifting (Brothertiger Remix)

Drifting (Brothertiger Remix)

Brooklyn-based musician and producer John Jagos has for years been dutifully recording an illusive and ethereal brand of synth-washed pop under his Brothertiger moniker and in that time we’ve fallen pretty hard. Jagos is getting primed to drop a full-length Brothertiger LP on us in December, Out of Touch, and on advance listen behind its eclectic bevy of singles including “Wake”, it’s quickly ascending towards the top of this writer’s ‘LP of the Year’ shortlist (which is actually starting to get pretty lengthy, but that’s neither here nor there). Today however, Brothertiger again dons the ‘remixer’ cap for a tune that’s been circulating like hotcakes this year, ON AN ON’s “Drifiting”. We’ve previously featured Duncan Murray’s take on this one, but Brothertiger’s official revision has really been tickling our penchant for morose pop stylings. Melting pads are folded in deftly amongst a genial sea of nuanced synth played like waves against a subtly tweaked ON AN ON vocal track. If this isn’t one of the more beautiful songs you hear this week, we’ll be left scratching our heads. Brothertiger’s “Drifting” remix comes as part of the always stellar Roll Call Records‘ 4-track remix EP of the same name, which also features mixes from RAC, the aforementioned Duncan Murray and Sammy Bananas, but you can stream Jagos’ remix above.

[Future] Troyboi & Diplo – Afterhours Ft. Nina Sky (Sharps X Convex Remix)

Troyboi & Diplo
Afterhours Ft. Nina Sky (Sharps X Convex Remix)

Seattle’s Sharps and Convex of LA partner up to take on the single “Afterhours” by Troyboi and Diplo. Their free remix is an awe-striking future bass production that is not your run of the mill record. Sensational synths pierce the speakers alongside the sweet vocal from Nina Sky. Sometimes songs of this style keep things too light, but these two producers make sure to bring big 808’s and manage to keep things thick and juicy. Their take on “Afterhours” is one the chiller side, but it still has energy and groove, making it a track that can hold it’s own at festivals. Anytime you try and take on a Diplo original, it’s a tough thing, but Sharps and Convex pull it off without a hitch. If you didn’t know Sharps or Convex already, this is one hell of an intro to these talents.

[House] Snoop Dogg – Drop It Like It’s Hot (The Golden Pony Remix)

Snoop Dogg
Drop It Like Its Hot (The Golden Pony Remix)

We’ve been closely following NY’s favorite curly-haired dance export The Golden Pony for years now. While the pair have made their mark on tunes from artists as varied as Simon & Garfunkel, Avicii, Daft Punk, The Grateful Dead and Seinabo Sey; it has been their work revolving around hip-hop or R&B which has really moved us in the past. While it’s been a minute since The Golden Pony has taken on any rap ciphers, today they’re back with an uplifting indie-house groover in the form of a Snoop Dog “Drop It Like It’s Hot” remix. The pair plays off of Pharrell Williams & Snoop Dogg’s gangster feel with a buoyant melody anchored by the kind of hooky whistle that wouldn’t be too out of place on a Bob Sinclar record; but where Sinclar would lean in closer to pop structuring, The Golden Pony unleash a perfectly swung, rolling bassline to lend more than enough underground sensibility and groove to their vision. When pressed about their latest remix the pair remarked: “The beat of this track originally came from a remix we did for Hillary Duff’s track “Sparks”. We made an instrumental version, which we have been dropping in our dj sets over the summer. One time we dropped a Snoop acapella over it and some magic happened, so we decided to make a studio version of it!” We’re certainly glad they did. Enjoy The Golden Pony’s “Drop It Like It’s Hot” remix above.
