The Hills (SKULS RIP)
SKULS have always brought the fire with their signature RIP remixes. They keep the flames going strong with their remix of “The Hills” by The Weeknd. Future and trap are the usual routes the duo take, and with this the former sound is where they head. With all the explosive energetic tracks that are coming out this festival season, it’s nice to catch a break on the chiller side. SKULS allow for that with a tasteful production that is along the lines of producers like Prince Fox. Given their extensive list of quality cuts, we’re hoping to see these two do some original productions for some of the people they’ve remixed. They certainly have the chops, as you can hear. As always, they have given this track one out for free. Hop on it!
Back in May, we had the chance to premiere a track by Zeologic. It was the remix of “Tempest” that the Serbian did for the esteemed trance act Juno Reactor. Today, we share with you the rest of the album which has ten tracks total from artists all over the world.
The Golden Sun Remixed is jam packed with tunes from differing genres, although the project largely revolves around styles of trance. With remixes from BLiSS, Modus, Cylon, Tortured Brain and more, there’s plenty of solid, and might we add very interesting, songs for you to stream, or purchase. There is also a bonus single by Mickey Noise, in case the previous tracks were not enough. The Golden Sun Remixed was released in conjunction with Metropolis Records.

One Last Night (SMLE Remix)
Fifty Shades of Grey? Try Fifty Shades of SMLE.
Once again, we find ourselves writing about the enigmatic producer. We’ve now covered his/her/their work eight times, and we still don’t have any additional information to provide you. In all honesty though, aside from your natural, inquisitive curiosity, doesn’t it all just boil down to amazing music? That’s what we thought.
Taking a crack at “One Last Night,” originally featured on the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack, SMLE dazzles listeners once again with a sultry, future bass remix. Harnessing on key portions of Vault’s lyrics, the expertly crafted vocal samples pair up with fluttering synths, ethereal strings, and booming bass. When asked about this approach, SMLE had this to say:
Vaults’ powerful lyrics and enticing vocal melodies heavily influenced our production style in the creation of this remix. Hope you all enjoy.
Ready Or Not (Kicks N Licks Remix)
As Kicks N Licks get ready to ship out for EDC this year for their first set at the festival, they dropped a new remix that the ninjas are premiering right here, right now. The San Diego duo took on “Ready Or Not” by The Fugees for one of the classiest twerk tracks your ears will experience ever. They also dropped it as a free download, so there’s that.
Kicks N Licks have had their fair share of solid remixes, always giving listeners something a little different each time, but always great. With this remix they start out with almost a tropical trap sound, then they slowly move into a more urban style that takes over, with the initial vibe piercing through the mix occasionally to keep things light. Press play, enjoy; and don’t forget to grab yourself the download before you continue your search for dope tunes.
Let the weekend officially begin! Let the pre-gaming ensue, with partying planned deep in the night. Let your night roll just as the current Friday Party Playlist does, with energy building until its time to close out. We can only hope your night ends just as this does with “No Panties,” too. Before that, you have a whole night to get through, with a whole gang of tunes from artists like Said The Sky, Jantsen with Dirt Monkey, Bad Catholics and Trapzillas. All of these tunes come for free, as usual, but this time tracks have been taken from rosters by Kairos Audio, Buygore, Main Course and CAPS LOCK CREW. #danceirresponsibly

CIRCLES (Official Remix)
Chitown native SD had a breakout year in 2014 with the release of his hit street single, “Circles.” Today the track finally receives the remix treatment, with a refreshing new update courtesy of fellow Windy City resident Smoko Ono and Soulection’s Mr Carmack. Those three names alone should be enough to convince you to give this one a listen. This reinterpretation preserves much of the essence of the original, but it’s further amplified through an ethereal mix of synths that’ll have your head spinning in, well “Circles”. Stream the hypnotic tune above and be on the lookout for more from these promising producers in the near future.
Blue Skies (REVOKE REMIX)
Shining through “Blue Skies” is the Venice producer John Khetchian, also known as REVOKE. Trap is on a lot in the dojo, and every so often there’s a track that really sticks out to us, and this is one of them. REVOKE straight kills it with a huge flip that plays off the festival style, but it doesn’t cheapen itself. Instead, he crafts a juicy treat that you will want to consume over and over again. John is no stranger to producing insane remixes, and with this he lengthens his already strong resume. Lenka and REVOKE make a magical fit together that we’d like to hear more of. “Blue Skies” in its new form will hold us over for a long time, however. Let it do the same for you; click play, and revel in cloud nine.
