[Future/Dubstep] Florence & The Machine – Spectrum (TYR Remix)

Florence & The Machine
Spectrum (TYR Remix)

There have been a number of Florence & The Machine remixes over the years, but TYR‘s flip of “Spectrum” has to be one of the best out there. The Collxtion collective helped push this remix out for free, and we’re happy they did. TYR goes allout with his creative production that brings some dubstep overtones to the future style. TYR shows off his new production style with this record, which has a lot of people excited because this is unlike much else that is out there. If he continues putting tracks out this good, there’s no telling where TYR will go. Soon enough the remixes will be official, pushed out by majors if he keeps it up. As for now, this Florence & The Machine remix is pure gold, so don’t forget to donwload it before you leave.

[Future/Glitch] Virtu – Blunt Force

Blunt Force

Sexy Electric is one of those labels too many people are sleeping on. They recently released a free single from Virtu who has been breaking into the scene from his home base in Los Angeles. Although he’s only released a few tracks, he’s already become one of the hottest new producers. His last record was a heavier midtempo track, but with “Blunt Force” he smooths out the sound for a more future type sound slightly reminiscent of Illenium. Virtu delivers a beautiful record that would have been the perfect Summer track, but now it’s going to keep our spirits up in with the colder weather. “Blunt Force” is on the slower side, but it still has groove and dance appeal to be used in any atmosphere. Look out for Virtu’s upcoming Diligence EP, which this single will be a part of.

[Chill] Charles Murdoch – Frogs Feat. Ta-Ku & Wafia

Charles Murdoch
Frogs Feat. Ta-ku, Wafia & Hak

The recent run of dynamic musicians coming from Australia these past few years shows no signs of slowing up.

It appears as if our kangaroo-boxing neighbors to the south have commandeered the progressive electronic music world; artists are able to piggyback off of like minded producers, while forming collectives that insulate them in positive and constructive environments to create polished works at a breakneck pace.

Riding the wave of success that gained traction on the back of Flume, Chet Faker, and countless others, Charles Murdoch – a long time Future Classic member – went back to the studio, working on a soon-to-be-release LP, Point.

Earlier this week, the stars aligned and fans were graced with the first release from Point; a collaboration involving familiar artists expanding their repertoires into unfamiliar roles. While Murdoch’s widely popular remixes may be what he is best known for, his latest original work certainly sets the bar much higher.

“Frogs” opens with a 30 second monologue by none other than Ta-Ku – reminiscent of a spoken word session at a poetry club – fading into a soft downtempo warbling that persists throughout the remainder of the track. As the beat picks up, he demonstrates a sultry smooth vocal skill set on “Frogs” that fans have only heard snippets of via his eccentric Instagram account.

While listeners are still processing the limitless talents of Ta-Ku, Wafia comes into the fold, seductively harmonizing her lines intermittently throughout the song. The masterful duet takes Murdoch’s dark, brooding instrumental and injects it with feelings of solitude. Following a Wafia solo at the 3:00 mark in which she serenades listeners with a single emotive line, “Frogs” ends all too soon.

Charles Murdoch fans can keep up with his works and the upcoming release of Point on his Soundcloud page.

[Dreamy] Keep Shelly In Athens – Benighted (Different Sleep Remix)

Different Sleep
Keep Shelly In Athens ~ Benighted (Different Sleep Remix)

This Different Sleep remix might just be the coolest thing we’ve heard today. The Chicago-based producer put his own spin on his Friends of Friends label-mate’s track “Benighted”, and turned it into this breathtaking downtempo tune. Different Sleep combines a light bassline with Keep Shelly in Athens‘ chill-out elements and sustained vocals, resulting in five minutes of dreamy adventure. A series of synth stabs and piano licks elevate the track with a majestic effect, yet remaining a mysterious vibe. We became a fan soon after the very first listen. Whether you’re listening to this when you’re sleeping, driving or doing work, this gem definitely serves its purpose.

Different Sleep is supporting Keep Shelly in Athens for their North American tour this fall, so don’t miss out if you want to catch these talented individuals!
