Genius (Prinston Remix)
As the atmospheric backdrop for this writer has turned a little cold, dreary and rainy in Denver, it was only fitting to counteract Mother Nature with some upbeat, sunny nu-disco. Filling that space is an official remix from enigmatic Swedish producer Prinston, who’s touched up Cazzette’s “Genius” with enough funk, soul, disco and classic house to have us dancing all the way through the impending weekend. Prinston riffs on Cazzette’s boisterous original by pulling its rolling cadence back to a breezy stride and instilling a bevy of Nile Rodgers tipping guitar licks to appeal to your funky side in the process. Previously, the mysterious Swede has already remixed Cazzette and his single “Sleepless”, but also wields credits on revisions of Avicii’s “Waiting For Love” and Maroon 5’s “Sugar”. With under 200 Soundcloud followers, 100 Facebook fans and a polished sound rivaling any of today’s most notable producers, Prinston is a bona fide find in today’s climate of music dispersion… which you might’ve heard we have something of an ear for. Be on the lookout for Prinston’s debut EP, due out in 2016, and in the mean time, sit back and get loose with his remix of “Genius” above.
Movements feat. Yung Fusion (Delusion Remix)
Here’s a tune to help get through your Wednesday struggles. Delusion fused soulful keys with Yung Fusion‘s rap verse, resulting in a remix of Pham‘s “Movements” that perfectly showcases the producer’s sound. The tune gets kicked up a notch at the beat drop, which has a subtle house beat that’s mixed in with distorted synth. The intricate drums and masterful sampling skills are barely scratching the surface of what the young producer can do. It goes to show that dance music is not exclusive to big room, but also to chill vibes and other “lighter” music.
We are very impressed by this release by Delusion. Make sure to tune in as we’re expecting more music coming your way.
I Found You (Halogen Remix)
Do you ever get that feeling that you just want to dance like no one’s watching? Well this tune might just be able to do that for you. Filled with positive energy and good vibes, this remix of “I Found You” is the spiced up version of the joyous original. Halogen used vocals from Gibbz a.k.a Mike Gibney and paired them with a fun and upbeat outfit. The enchanting melodies blend perfectly with the buildup, leading to a dance drop that will definitely make you jump uncontrollably.

Brave Town – It Won't Be Long (Third Kind Remix)
Debuting an artist is something that we hold near and dear. Over the past six years, we’ve had the pleasure of breaking numerous artists that are now playing the biggest stages, dominating the radio, and becoming household names across the globe.
Today marks another debut, as we bring you a first look and listen to 20-year Nashvillian old producer Third Kind. As we’ve seen so many times before, this aspiring musician also splits his time with classes at a university. However, while a lot of college dorm room producers start their craft at that point in time, Jonathan Rankin has actually been immersed in music from a very early age, taking to a set of decks in just the 7th grade.
Remixing fellow Nashville natives, Brave Town, Third Kind has put a delicious future twist on what was originally a glowing, guitar-centric indie rock tune. Focusing heavily on the engaging original vocals, this remix effortlessly fuses together the two genres, creating an impressive, unique persona of its own. Vocal treatments aside, the fast, rolling snares, powerful, future-style synths, and atmospheric hissing, drips, and drops are definitely the heroes of this song. When they all come together, it’s hard to not get completely lost, helplessly smiling at the enveloping experience.
You Don't Own Me Ft. G-Eazy (Candyland Remix)
Candyland hasn’t lost any steam since the two became one. Josie has kept up with solid productions, and entertaining crowds with live performances as though nothing has happened. Most recently, Candyland was tapped for an official remix of “You Don’t Own Me,” the single by Grace featuring G-Eazy. In a Facebook post about the remix, the Santa Barbara act stated that the two knocked the original out of the park, and we believe the same can be said for the remix. Candyland delivers a vocal driven edit that makes use of vocal chopping and modulating to create the melodic phrase after the drop. Prior to the climax, we get a thugged out version of the original that will have trap lords and queens bowing down for a long time to come. Continue reading
