Genie In A Bottle (Loveless Remix) *FREE DL*
And now, for a song fifteen years in the making. If you remember the rivalry between Britney and Christina back in the day, you’d remember how significant this song was in 90’s pop culture. Clearly Loveless is on the same page as us, as the Norwegian duo brings the karaoke classic into 2014 as a sexy deep house cut. Heavy on the vibes and light on the chords, this guy is a perfect addition to any upbeat workout/party playlist. We’ve posted a barnyard full of house music selections this weekend, but here’s hoping this piques your interest enough to hit play.
Fragile (MCHNCL Remix)
For all the credit we’ve given Australian music recently, it’s unfair for New Zealand not to share the spotlight. After all, they have given us Kimbra and Lorde. After this post, you can go ahead and add Maya Payne to that list of Kiwi starlets as well. “Fragile” is her debut single and it’s getting its fair share of remix work; however MCHNCL’s effort truly showcases Payne’s talent behind stellar production by her fellow Kiwi. This seventeen year old is going places real soon and we can’t be more stoked for her! Hopefully New Zealand’s best kept secret will make a splash across the world.
Help (Elephante Remix)
It’s a well-known fact that Galantis is a blogger’s dream come true. When Christian Karlsson of Miike Snow and Linus Eklow (Style Of Eye) teamed up to start making progressive house we knew we were in for something special; we just couldn’t imagine how great it would actually be. They have absolutely taken the Internet by storm and now seem to building up even more momentum through their touring. Last week, they let out a remix EP and while each track is great in its own right, we think we found the crown jewel. Elephante has rapidly become one of the most well-respected creators in the electro house field, however he flexes his melodic capabilities on this one as the end result is a stunning, practically cinematic, progressive house edit of Galantis’ “Help”.
It really says a lot about an artist’s abilities as not only a creator but an icon when remixes of your material number in the thousands. We’d have to talk to Soundcloud about the actual numbers, but it’s safe to say Ellie Goulding, Avicii, and Kanye West are the most remixed artists ever. Producers from all walks of life and musical backgrounds love to put their own signature stylings on these musicians’ works and no two tracks ever sound the same. When Kanye released the broody “Love Lockdown,” too many producers took it in the wrong direction and added more upbeat drumwork or something in that vein. Polo understands just how to operate on a song like this. Another Kiwi on this blogathon, he makes his TMN debut today with his ultimate sadboi rendition and even throws a few “Heartless” samples in here and there. For anyone who wishes 808s & Heartbreak was darker, here’s what you were looking for.

The Way I Feel (Recycle Culture's Slow Emotion Reel)
One of the greatest parts of this blogging gig is virtual crate digging on Soundcloud for hours and hours trying to find the gems of the Internet. This here is a perfect example of something you have to earn to post. Recycle Culture and Doss are both known in smaller producer circles, however you’d be hard-pressed to see a guy walking down the street wearing their merchandise. That being said, the two are insanely talented and deserve all the love they can get. Doss produced “The Way I Feel” back in the spring and it did relatively well on its own, however Recycle Culture has picked it up and turned it into an astonishingly beautiful record. We as bloggers use the term “chill” a lot to describe music from all sound spectrums, however this remix is the absolutely perfect embodiment of what the word chill truly represents. This is the kind of track you can feel yourself melt into without a care in the world.
Sleepless (Jonathan Kane Remix)
The artist formerly known as Shreddie Mercury has struck gold again. Now known as Jonathan Kane, the soundscaper hailing from Missouri has been seeking to reinvent his brand of music, but he has not forsaken his godlike skills in creating gorgeous melodies, as we can see here on his Cazzette remix. “Sleepless” has been remixed to death in recent weeks, however none can create quite the emotional landscape the lyrics portray like Kane. In what seems like a lost track of Porter Robinson’s “Worlds”, Kane takes the track into his own hands and creates absolute magic with it.
Strobe (Prince Fox 15k Private Stock Edit Pack)
There are a few certainties in this crazy trip we call life: death, taxes, and that Prince Fox is the future of electronic music. Now to us, “Strobe” is one of the most sacred compositions ever constructed; any remix or mashup is ungodly yet we still see hundreds being released each year. I’d say the only reason I even gave this one a look is because it was done by Prince Fox so I trust the quality, and quality it is. You may think you’ve heard Strobe every which way: progressive house, dubstep, nightcore, any genre under the sun. And even if there are several future bass remixes out in the market, none can come close to Fox’s effort. What this NYC producer has done is recreate one of the most gorgeous melodies to ever grace our beloved world and add even more to it. Don’t think of this as a deadmau5 remix, think of it as what Joel could have accomplished when he first created this track five years ago.
