Zedd ft. Hayley Williams
Stay The Night (YOGI REMIX)

Another week, another industry newcomer here on The Music Ninja. You know we love bringing you guys the freshest there is, and today is no different. Hot out of the gates is the youngster YOGI, who’s serving up a remix of Zedd’s monster tune with Hayley Williams.

In this remix, the Big Smoke based producer flipped the progressive nature of “Stay the Night” on its head, dialing it up with deep bass hits, meticulously crafted samples and razor sharp synths. Once uplifting, and suggestive, the tune now takes on a much more aggressive and sexual feel, being propelled by driving drum rythyms and contorted vocals.

The latest signing to Skrillix’s OWSLA label, YOGI is already showing promise with this monster remix. Make sure you keep an eye on him, as he’s rumored to have collaborated with big Hip Hop artists for his debut EP, due out early 2014.

[Disco-House] The 1975 – Girls (The Knocks Remix)

Girls (The Knocks remix)

Oh boy, do we love when remix duties are symbiotically thought out rather than the product of two talent agencies trying to highlight their respective artist du jour. So for us, it was a match made in indie heaven when production duo The Knocks took on the task of reinvigorating Manchester lo-fi garage-poppers The 1975 and their single “Girls” (which comes as part of their debut self-titled album) into a scooting clubland anthem. After being called upon for official remixes to the likes of indie stalwarts like HAIM, Of Monsters and Men, Grouplove, Foster the People and Two Door Cinema Club it was high time that they were called upon to work some of their big-room disco shimmer onto an emotive and dreamy tune. The Knocks’ take “Girls” to new heights with airy synth stabs, and a very nice play by pitching down Matthew Healy’s super recognizable croon and folding it back in with the original vocal track.  Expect to hear this one in many a disc-jockey’s set this season, and be ready for the full release on November 11.

Hold On, We’re Going For The Remix – The Best Remixes & Covers of Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home”

Drake-Hold-On-Were-Going-Home-1

Last week was Drake‘s birthday (October 24th), and in order to properly celebrate his 27th year on this earth, we’ve put together a nice little belated gift for October’s Very Own. Below we’ve compiled 22 (because 20 just wasn’t enough) of the best covers and remixes of possibly the most addicting single to drop this year, “Hold On, We’re Going Home.” It’s almost astonishing how many unique renditions of the track we were able to find during our search, making it incredibly tough to narrow down our selection. Nonetheless, we’ve broken them down for you into two separate collections of 11 songs each, listed in no particular order. Even the staunchest Drizzy haters will find something to enjoy here, with revisions that range from the garage rock stylings of Arctic Monkeys to the festival friendly Max Methods refix and everything in between.

Check out all the different selections below, and let us know if there’s any that we might’ve missed!

[Chill] Edwarde Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros – Life is Hard (Teen Daze Remix)

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
Life Is Hard (Teen Daze Remix)

The hippie-inspired collective that is Edwarde Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros is always a great change of pace for those looking for something more organic and free spirited. While their music does not generally lend itself to the more electronic remixes, Vancouver-based producer Teen Daze has managed to flip the emotional “Life is Hard” into a 6-minute airy and ambient masterpiece. The remix features an extended intro using only a brief soundbyte of the original and it’s not until the three minute mark that the vocals of Alex Ebert make a brief, warped appearance. Despite a drastically different sound, this rework seems to communicate a similar sentiment as Ed Sharpe’s original.

Teen Daze’s take on “Life is Hard” floats along with only a subtle build-up creating a surreal ambiance perfect for zoning out the perils of your week. Enjoy and grab a free download of this meditative track above.

[Remix] Drake – Come Thru (James Blake Version)

Drake
Come Thru (James Blake Version)

Just when you thought those Drake remixes were finally slowing down, we get this brand new revision of “Come Thru” courtesy of James Blake. While the original was a little too playful for my tastes, Blake’s rework adds a sense of urgency to the track, especially when the ominous synths kick in around the one minute mark where Drizzy begins his verse. Of course the transformation wouldn’t be complete without Blake adding in his own backing vocals, which compliment the dark overtones added through his production. Check out the tune above, and let us know your thoughts. Hopefully this means we’re one step closer to hearing that collaboration between the two artists we’ve all been anxiously waiting for.
