A lot of the time when rappers create a vocal edit of an electronic record, it’s not so good. Disappointing, yes; especially for lovers of hip-hop/crossover like us ninjas. One rapper who is launching his act with a vocal edit is Hoody Time, who spit some fire on Marshmello‘s single “Home.” As if the track wasn’t fun enough, he adds onto it some lively vocals for people to rap along with, making it one powerful party track. If you take the time to listen to the lyrics, you’ll find they’re quite inspiring, conveying one must leave home to bring their dreams to fruition. With that, one must also not forget where they come from. Have a listen, and make sure to download the freebie from the stream player. Hoody Time is going to be releasing more works, so make sure to stay up to date via social media.
A few years ago, we introduced to our pages a gifted young up and comer by the name of Brandon Rowan aka Birocratic. We mentioned him as someone to keep your eyes on in the chill/electronic music scene, and since that time the New York based beatsmith has grown tremendously as a musician, culminating with the release of his sensational beets 3 compilation this past May. Today, we’re excited to bring you the latest testament to Brandon’s talents as we premiere his remix of indie pop duo Glassio‘s “Try Much Harder”. Though nearly unrecognizable from its source material, Biro’s rendition is equally as catchy. Gone are the hazy, laidback vibes of the original, replaced with chopped up vocals and uplifting synths. It’s the type of tune that’ll stick with you after just one listen, and we have a good feeling that it’ll make its way into your weekend rotation.
We are absolutely in love with this remix by FlyBoy. Starting off with a familiar guitar riff and Mree‘s sustained vocals, “Lift Me Up” will melt your heart away. The Italian producer gives the original a chill outfit by incorporating a house beat. The dreamy vocals accentuate the ambient vibe of the track and bring out a familiar sound resembling Robin Schulz‘s.
This has to be one of the best tracks FlyBoy’s put out to date. The pleasant guitar melodies might just get stuck in your head for the rest of your day. It’ll be difficult not to enjoy listening to this nighttimey tune. We know the young producer has more remixes coming out in the near future so stay tuned.
As it seems much of the weather stateside has officially shifted over into Autumn territory in the matter of a week, so too do our tastes towards the underground rumblings of dance music. Murkier, and more seductively soulful house rhythms creep into the forefront of this writer’s heavy rotation playlists as the weather transforms, and luckily, Stockholm based producer ANEVO got the memo with his latest remix of Dear David’s “Hypnotized”. We’ve already had the chance to hear this one touched by another artist with Chase’s version of “Hypnotized”; and on the heels of his massive remix for the Calvin Harris & Ellie Goulding collaboration “Outside”, ANEVO turn things a shade darker on Dear David’s bouncy original. Thumping kick-drums pulse while atonal harmonies dart across ANEVO’s dreary yet highly accessible soundscape, while Dear David’s original vocal track gets touched up with a clever shot of reverb and effected synths. We couldn’t have asked for a better tune to pair with Denver’s rainy backdrop today, and we’ve not stopped grooving in the process.
It’s that dreaded day of the week again, dare we say it, Monday. But, why not make the best of this Monday and forget about the awful stigma that haunts it? We know that may seem slightly impossible, after all, it commences yet another hectic work week, but maybe it’s time to embrace these “horrid” Mondays. So what is a reliable tactic to transform those morning commutes that feel like you’re driving towards your deathbed into a commute towards your birthday party? Music.
Only a few days ago, Point Point hit the public with a new one, a remix of Porter Robinson’s “Lionhearted” featuring the vocals of Urban Cone. Only seconds after pressing play, smiles started to appear on our faces. Steering in a different direction from their usual steamy sound with drawn-out synths, which you may have heard in their ‘Contrastive Focus Reduplication‘ EP or their recent remix of Gallant’s “Weight In Gold,” they speed up the tempo with a brighter tone.
More affective than a cup of coffee with an extra shot of espresso, Point Point’s remix stimulates the senses with a hair-raising melody and enlivening rhythm. But, to be completely honest, it’s pretty difficult to describe just how incredible the production and synth work is; take our word for it. Only way you’re going to find out is giving this one a listen. Be careful though, it may cause uncontrollable dancing and smiling.
Check out this bootleg of “Hotline Bling” by the talented DATHAN. The bay area-based producer takes a stab at Charlie Puth and Kehlani‘s cover of the track, and totally elevated it into a fun and upbeat version. It’s always interesting seeing the evolution and different takes on the Drizzy track, as it goes from the original cha cha remix, to Charlie and Kehlani’s emotional cover, and now to this chill trap hotness. With the use of heavy synths and discrete vocal samples, Dathan’s flip is as good as it gets. It’s the perfect dance track to show your friends if they’re looking for some variation of the popular original.
Dathan is definitely coming out with more stuff in the near future, so stay tuned til his next feature.
This gem from Caius is so smooth it might make you tear up a little. The “bedroom producer” from Copenhagen will definitely put you in a mellow state with his new tune “Make U Mine”. He cleverly flips Ashanti’s “Feel So good” and fills it in with a sexy beat. Vocals are raised in pitch and are accompanied by a series of sustained piano chord progression. A series of muted guitar licks further brings out the soul in the track. Ain’t nothing wrong with a little bump and grind, am I right?
Make sure to stay tuned for more sexy tunes like this coming your way. The 20-year-old Caius is just getting started.
